Well hello there! It's about time I started this report. I know, I'm only 3 weeks late, but I was having some picture difficulties!

But here we go. If you missed out on the boringness that was my pre-tr, here's the link: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2649775

The info is scattered throughout, but here's the basics of the trip.

Leave early Friday morning, September 23rd. Check into the Clarion Inn (we added a night on at the last minute and Disney values were all booked up so we had to stay offsite). The next day check into Disney's All Star Music. Fun, fun, fun, fun. Check out October 1st. Go home :sad1:

There were some firsts on this trip. We also had to impress a newbie to Disney. Did we succeed? You'll find that out later!

We usually go in January. September is a HUGE difference. We wanted to go for the Halloween party, but man, it was HOT. I doubt we ever go during that time again. Sweaty sticky messiness.

But we did have fun and we did take a lot of pictures of course. I used my Nikon, gave Darren my Canon point and shoot to use, Flip video and our cell phones. So there will be a variety of quality in these pics, but you'll get the point. :thumbsup2

Day 1 coming up!! We got off to a bad start....:rolleyes1

We've just returned from a first trip in September and loved it! However, we have never been in January so didn't have anything to compare the weather to! :laughing:

Looking forward to reading more, including what the bad start was about.

Ugh one of my smoke alarms in the house is beeping and it's driving me CRAZY!! I already changed the battery in it twice and it still won't stop. Tried holding the hush button, still nothing. Grrrrr!!

Anyway, here we go!!

Thursday, September 22nd

I had most of the packing done besides some last minute things. I was at my mom's house (she lives next door) and Brayden wanted to go home with my nephews to play (they live a couple of houses down) so I let him go so I could finish up.

Darren got off around 4 or 5pm, loaded up the car and tried to sleep a bit before we were due to leave (3am-ish). Around 8, I went to pick up Brayden. He usually throws a huge fit, not wanting to leave, but this time he just waved and said "I'm going to Disney World! Bye!"

So we get back home and both of the kids are still up and we're all watching tv and eating string cheese. Well Brayden gets a piece stuck in his throat or something because he starts choking/gagging and before I could react he threw up all over the rug. Now, I don't know if it's know, but I'm a huge emetophobe. I told him not to move and I ran to wake Darren up so he could clean him up. I don't do wel with that at all!

Darren laughs at me and still half asleep, cleans the rug. Barely. I had to go behind him with the Lysol and vinegar because he didn't do a good job at ALL. I'm ok as long as the majority is cleaned up, so it was alright. But that was the bad start I was talking about.

Darren goes back to bed and I give the kids a bath (second one of the night) and finally they settle down to sleep and I decide to just stay up instead of getting a couple hours of sleep.

At 2:13am, I go into the bedroom and wake Darren up. He playfully picked on me for waking him up 2 minutes before the alarm went off, but I didn't care. I was ready to GO!

I took a quick shower and Chris and Darren's parents were on their way. I took a picture of the moon.

And we loaded the kids up and we were on our way!

Cranky kids at 3am.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1596.jpg

We stopped and filled up the car.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1593.jpg

I put a movie on for the kids.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/aff0d133.jpg

They finally dozed off so I got to get a little bit of sleep. We had a loooong drive and it's best to sleep your way through it. Not if you're the one driving, of course. ;)

Up next, the first glimpse of "the sign", a lot more pics, and a little bit a prehistoric grub! Stay tuned!

well, I was worried you were later going to say that Brayden threw up in the car too, and that's when you realized that it wasn't the string cheese at all but a stomach bug! :scared1:

So while it wasn't the best night prior to leaving, it wasn't as bad as I was expecting! Hope it's all smooth sailing from here on... :thumbsup2

That thought definitely crossed my mind!! I know kids throw up for no reason sometimes, but I'm always worried it's a bug! I kept watching him closely and asking him how he was feeling lol. But yeah, it would have been terrible in the car!! :scared1:

Friday September 23rd

So we're driving. And driving. And driving...

We come upon this.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1597.jpg

Poor guy, but we got a nice laugh out of it!!

We found an exit with food since we were getting pretty hungry. We found a Wendy's. The kids got chicken nuggets and a baked potato. And juice, of course (my kids LOVE juice! Especially the occasional juice box since it's straight juice. Normally I mix half water so it's not so sugary).

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1598.jpg

Back on the road....

And then...And THENNNNNN. One of the most exciting signs ever!

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1604.jpg

Don't you just feel that heart fluttering excitement?!

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1600.jpg

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1601.jpg

Brayden was very exited, saying "Dizzy Whirl!!!!"

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1606.jpg

Brynn was like, "This is it? Boring!"

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1607.jpg

It sucked driving past all of the Disney hotels to get to the Clarion, but it was as nice as could be expected. I'd still have rathered stay onsite!

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1611.jpg

I tried to get a picture of the kids together. A feat in itself.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1612.jpg

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1613.jpg

They are always wrestling! Brynn whoops him 9 times out of 10.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1614.jpg

Brynn and Uncle Chris!

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1616.jpg

Then...We lost Brayden!! He was nowhere to be found! *gasp!* It's a hotel room, there's only so many places he can be!

Oh. There he is. ;)

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1617.jpg

So I know I said we were getting to the prehistoric meal, but that'll be next update. My sister needs to me run to Chick Fil A with her because she left her debit card. Silly girl! I'll be back with another update sooner than this one was, promise!

Actually, she called them! The manager had it in the safe for her. She said there were quite a few cards in there too :lmao:

I KNOW!!! They do have a CFA in Southeastern but who wants to go in there to get food? I'm guessing it'll be up in the next couple of months! They get buildings up so fast that I hope it's really soon.

So we loaded back into the car (the kids hated their carseats at this point) and drove to Downtown Disney.

We got to DTD and headed to T-Rex Cafe. The line wasn't too terribly long but we still had to wait about 30 minutes. We took Brayden out to play in the dig area since the kid LIVES for dirt and rocks.

We went back inside and Brayden was TERRIFIED of the dinosaurs!! Uh oh...This wasn't looking good for our character meets.

We get seated and Brayden is still leary about these dinos, especially during the meteor shower.

He's making sure that T-rex doesn't break loose from the wall and come after him.

Our server was really...weird. He was a good waiter, but he shared waaaay too much information with us. Something about how him and his ex wife were still friends...with benefits. I mean, really? Does that seem like an appropriate thing to say? We were all just like, yeahhhhh, and nodding. How do you respond to that?

Anyway, Darren and I got the boneyard platter to split and it was good.

After we finished eating, we tried to walk around DTD for a bit but it was SO crowded and rainy and just blah. We were still tired from the long car ride so we just went back to the hotel to get some sleep.

Up next, FINALLY checking into a Disney resort! It's officially vacation time!

Your kids have the most beautiful blue eyes. Brayden really doesn't look sure about those dinosaurs. How old were they on this trip. We're thinking on bringing our daughter just before her 2nd birthday, but we'll see.

Love that last pic! Brayden's eyes are so cute :) My little guy loves dinos, so we will stop in to do the build-a-dino thing, but not sure about eating there. Is it really loud and crazy in there? My Bradey doesn't like loud noises. I planned Earl of Sandwich for our DTD day. But we will definately have to go in and look around TRex. Great pictures! Usually they are so dark and you can't see much :)

T-Rex looks really neat! I hope we can get a ressie there next year when we take our niece and nephew.

Yeah, I think that conversation would definitely have been a bit odd. Very strange to discuss that with your customers! Glad to hear the meal was good though!!

Can't wait to read about check-in!!

Thanks :) I'm doing ok, really tired, REALLY broken out (nobody warned me around that-I'm talking like wanna wear a paper bad over my head broken out) but I will take these symptoms with pleasure for what it could be. I've got preggo nose in full force, so I am gaggy over certain smells, and just no appetite most of the time. I feel so accomplished when I eat "good" for a day.

I'm SO sorry I haven't updated in awhile! Both kids came down with hand, foot and mouth disease so it's been an exhausting couple of weeks! Brynn had the sore all over her and Brayden had them mostly in his mouth. So we didn't get much sleep at all and I just didn't have the energy to update. They are doing MUCH better now and I'll most likely be updating tomorrow! :thumbsup2

Thank you so much! :goodvibes Yeah he was really leary of them! Brayden was 2 1/2 and Brynn was 13 months. I think your daughter would have a great time. People say kids are too little to remember but they definitely enjoy it WHILE they're there so I think it's totally worth it. Plus you make tons of memories yourself. It's a great experience! :thumbsup2

Haha thanks! It's really fun but it does get pretty loud during the meteor shower. Have you been to Rainforest Cafe? It's kind of like that when the animals come to life. It's mostly lights flickering and the sounds of crashing meteors, the dinos don't really roar from what I can remember. I took video of it, I need to post it!

uhhh....well, he does work near a "boneyard" so maybe he just can't help himself :rotfl:

We really like T-Rex! We've never had to make an ADR, we just walked right up. Just show up a little earlier than the normal eating times and you shouldn't have to wait too long.

Yeah that guy was crazy! :scared1:

Girl, I broke out like CRAZY with Brayden!! And there's really not much you can do for it. It started clearing up around 15 weeks and you're almost there so hopefully yours will too!
I hope you're feeling a little less sicky!

Saturday, September 24th

So it was finally time to check into our Disney resort! It was fun Clarion, but see ya!!

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1637.jpg

When we checked in, Brynn and Chris both got "My First Trip" buttons. Chris wouldn't wear his. Party pooper!!

Also, after we checked in, the lady went and got the kids a blow up guitar! I thought that was a really nice touch. We haven't gotten anything like that before.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1638.jpg

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1639.jpg

The kids still carry those things around the house!

Our rooms weren't ready, so we decided to head to the Polynesian for lunch. So off we went!

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1641.jpg

I got the cheese flatbread (LOVE that stuff!!), Darren got a burger and the kids got nuggets.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/013e3395.jpg

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/69d7f8c0.jpg

We thought the kids would like the monorail so after lunch we hopped on and rode to the Magic Kingdom. Brayden LOVED the monorail!! I really need to get my videos uploaded to show his reaction because he just looks bored in these pictures haha!

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1648.jpg

Brayden's very first ride ever was the TTA, so we headed to Tomorrowland so it could be Brynn's first ride too. I still miss the old soundtrack!

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1651.jpg

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1652.jpg

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1653.jpg

Then we went to Monster's Inc. Laugh Floor. When they're putting people on the big screen before the show starts, Darren's dad got put up there with "needs a hug" under his name. We got a laugh out of that. I was hoping they'd pick him or Chris during the show but they never did. Some of the people's reactions are so funny!

That's all for now, be back soon!!!

sorry about the kids being sick! HFM was going around like wildfire apparently! Almost everyone's toddler aged children around here have had it.


Yay, you made it to ASM!! How cute are the guitars. That was sweet. Hey c'mon mom...TTA??? BORING! Now let's see Brynn ride Dumbo! :banana: I sure hope that is coming up.

I LOOOVE me some Laugh Floor. How cool that they put your dad up there. Did y'all give him a hug??

After Laugh Floor, Darren, Chris, and I rode Space Mountain. I haven't been on any thrill ride since....2008 I think, so I was a little dizzy when I got off! I know most people love it, but I hate that drop that comes out of nowhere and feels like it keeps going and going. You lose your stomach more than once on that one drop! Hahaha! Not to mention that I'm ducking the whole time because it feels like you're going to hit your head.

BUT, it's a classic and it IS fun. Chris loved it!

While we were riding, Darren's parents stayed with the kids. They got them a snack and a photopass photographer took some pictures of them eating. I've never seen them do random pictures like that so it was kind of neat.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/PP1.jpg

From there, we headed to Pirates of the Caribbean. Always fun. Then we hit up Aloha Isle for our first Dole Whip of the trip. It couldn't have come at a better time because it was HOT. Excuse the crappy cell phone pic, but you get the idea.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/d1fb5eda.jpg

We walked through that area with the restrooms just as the parade started. Score!

Thank you!

How old is she? The only thing you can really do is wait it out. It's the worst for 2-3 days and then the symptoms get better. Tylenol/Ibuprofen for the pain and fever, and if she has them in her mouth, mix one part Children's Benadryl and one part Maalox or Mylanta, and swab it in her mouth. It will soothe the blisters. I gave my kids frozen teething rings to chew on. Make sure to sterilize cups and anything she comes in contact with. It's very contagious.

Poor baby, I hope she feels better soon! HF&M has been terrible this year! :guilty:

I just looked at it again and it looks like he's wearing a mask. He must have light colored makeup on his face or something.

Hi Sarah, we had a great Christmas, I hope you did too! Thanks for catching up on the report.

As of right now, surrogacy is on hold. I couldn't for the life of me find an agency that was willing to work with someone from Louisiana, then I decided I might want one more baby, and go to school first, so I'm just going to wait on that for now. I think the right couple will come along but it's just not time yet.

STILL Saturday the 24th

After the parade we walked to get on the train by Splash Mountain. Brayden LOVES trains so I knew he'd have a blast. He did!

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1682.jpg

We got a text that our room was ready and we were pretty tired at this point, so we headed out of the park and hopped on the monorail back to the Polynesian.

As you can see, Brayden loved the monorail ;) And Chris apparently likes hugging himself....

We were in the Broadway building. We always passed the guy that's playing the horn that is lit up at night. The string of lights that outlined him came undone and were just hanging. It stayed like that our whole trip and on the last day we saw them finally fixing it. I'm glad to know it didn't stay that way forever!

Yeah, I'm a germophobe. I totally cleaned her hands after touching that carpet. Eeeeew!

We rested for awhile and then headed to Hollywood Studios.

On the tram I took a picture of Brayden.

I told him to look at me and show his teeth (trying to trick him into smiling)

No, he doesn't read here. I was just joking of course! I think he was scratching or stretching.

I know, I was thinking the same thing! They're getting so big.

Love the ticker ;)

So we rested and got settled into the hotel for a bit before heading to Hollywood Studios.

We saw these adorable topiaries in front and Brayden freaked out. He LOVES Cars so much!

Darren, his mom, and Chris went to ride Tower of Terror while I grabbed the kids some chicken nuggets.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1714.jpg

I got myself some fries to snack on because they taste awesome with honey mustard. Here's the thing about Disney's honey mustard: It's pure deliciousness. It got me started on honey mustard when I never liked it before. I know it's Ken's brand, but it still tastes better in Disney!

I looked around for it. Ketchup, no. Barbeque sauce, nope. There was a nasty looking honey mustard but that couldn't be it. It had to be a mistake. Surely they haven't changed their honey mustard on me!

But they did. Can you believe it?! I was so disappointed, really. It now tastes like plain old mustard, no honey about it. I thought it might be just Hollywood Studios, just this restaurant. But the rest of the trip proved it was changed everywhere.

Here's the little tub of doom.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1715.jpg

Yeah, maybe I overreact a bit, but what's next? Changing Coke products to all Pepsi? When will it end, Disney? WHEN WILL IT END??

After the kids ate, the TOT gang made their way back. I had to break the bad news to Darren. He was NOT happy either! I think his reaction was "WHAT? WHY?!"

Haha I'm ok, I'm ok. Moving on...

We made our way to The Great Movie Ride...

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7025/6636255273_de903c475b_z.jpg

It was looking very dark and rainy when we got out of GMR, so we decided to leave the park. Yeah, we only rode two things, I just realized. Crazy! haha

I think we were still tired from the trip.

I snapped this on the way out.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7027/6636262193_0a1dae5b69_z.jpg

The kids were being silly on the tram.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7009/6636265473_754e92a82a_z.jpg

I don't know why he looks so shocked. Tired I guess! haha!

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7144/6636277685_6ced022e43_z.jpg

We got back to the hotel and got something to eat in the food court. I got baked chicken and Darren got chicken alfredo.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab87/TrueEeyore/Disney%202011/DSC_1724.jpg

Then we headed back to the room and gave the kids a bath and took showers. Then we watched the LSU game (GEAUX TIGERS!!!) and went to sleep.

Up next, Animal Kingdom!!

Love the Cars topiary! So cute!

And I kwym about Disney changing food stuff. They changed the burgers too. Did you notice? It's now on a wheat bun and I don't think it's real beef in the burger. It's DISGUSTING!!!! If they change to Pepsi .....oh I will not be a happy camper.

We've done that too, only riding a couple things in one day at a park. We used to be go go go and now, not so much. I guess we're getting old? :rolleyes:

I love the picture of the hat that you got. Do you lug around your DSLR? I got a point n shoot just so I wouldn't have to lug my DSLR around but I don't want to miss out on the great pictures! I'm torn :confused3 I guess I could bring both along every day but then how do I keep the pictures in order? And I won't feel safe leaving the DSLR in the stroller while we go on a ride. *sigh*

Hmm, I don't think I ate a burger this trip. Guess we'll see because I can't remember :rotfl:

Yep, my Nikon comes with me to the parks. I have a Canon p&s that I gave Darren the duty of (he lacked in this duty, except to totally break the rules and take flash pictures on Splash Mountain...but more details on that later lol)

It's really not that hard to carry around, and you do get really great pictures. I just didn't trust the p&s with certain pics, like character pics you know you won't get again you know? You definitely want your DSLR for that!

It is a pain to get all the pictures in order, hence all my issues earlier! But it's worth it!

I pretty much just took my Nikon with me on rides. The big rides we had to baby swap anyway, so whoever stayed with the kids, kept the camera. It all worked out. If you do have to leave it in the stroller, just cover it up with stuff. There's always a sea of strollers anyway, the odds of yours getting stolen are pretty slim. It's up to you though!

THANK YOU!!! I'm so glad to have some more readers. It's much more fun that way :thumbsup2

Sunday. September 25th. Part 2.

When we left Animal Kingdom, we headed back to the room for a bit. Darren, Chris, and Darren's dad wanted to go eat at ESPN. Darren's mom decided to stay in the room and keep the kids so we could go.

Well, we get there and the line is super long, stretching out the door at least 10 people deep. We waited for awhile, didn't move an inch, didn't even get our name asked! So we just left and went back to the hotel to eat in the food court.

We took a nap, then it was time for our Ohana ADR!

Waiting in the lounge.

I must say, I was a bit disappointed with Ohana. The chicken was good but I think it was the pork? NASTY! :eek: it tasted like black licorice. The atmosphere wasn't what I was expecting either.

It could be that Brynn was in a very bad mood. I ended up leaving the table and walking her around the gift shop in the stroller. I bought some Advil for her and she was feeling better in no time.

Good thing too, because it was time for Magic Kingdom extra magic hours!!

Wishes was just starting when we got there.

The kids LOVED it!!

We headed to Splash Mountain and everybody else rode while I waited with the kids in a gift shop.

Then we headed to Fantasyland for the kids to have a little fun. We went on their favorite ride, of course.

Then we went to Tomorrowland Speedway. This is one thing I've never done. Brayden loves cars and go carts so I knew he'd love it. He got in a car with me and Darren got in one right behind us.

Love the hands in the pocket while we wait in line haha.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7175/6636457507_4af627dda3_z.jpg

Brayden loved it! We hopped on the TTA afterwards to catch a nice breeze.

I think it was just a bad night for us. Nobody was really in a good mood. :confused3 The food was good besides the pork, but that's just my opinion. I really love the atmosphere at the Poly. Maybe we need to try Ohana for breakfast next time ;)

I make that face too, but mine isn't cute either! :rotfl:

We rode Nemo and Figment but for some reason there are no pics. Hmm...

Anyway, then we decided to see Captain EO.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7013/6636582363_4f741c1fdb_z.jpg

You could definitely tell it was outdated, but kinda neat. I didn't know the floor moved and it freaked me out at first! haha

It was time for lunch so we ate at the Electric Umbrella. Chris and Darren headed off to ride Mission Space while let the kids finish eating. They rode the no spin side (this time!).

Then we ran to get Soarin fastpasses and it started POURING rain. We let it slack up a bit and then decided to go back to the resort to rest.

Well it ended up raining for the rest of the night but we couldn't let that stop us! Darren, Chris, and I decided to leave the kids with Darren's parents and go to Hollywood Studios for extra magic hours. I didn't bring my camera because it was raining so bad.

I looked around in shops while the boys rode Tower of Terror and RNRC (twice!). Then we all rode the new Star Tours. That was really cool and I'm not even a Star Wars fan (don't judge!).

Then we went and got in line for Muppet Vision 3D. Now, I love a good 3D show, but if I'm being honest, this one is way outdated. Philharmagic puts it to shame. I know the muppets are classic, and I think it's a good show, the graphics just need to be updated.

Anyway, while waiting in the holding room, Darren's parents called and said Brynn kept crying and that we needed to come to the resort. After the show, I told the boys to stay in the park and I would go back by myself. I didn't want them missing out on extra magic hours and plus, I wanted to let Chris experience EMH.

So I got on a bus and the driver was telling all kinds of rumors. I always hear about bus driver's wild imaginations, but I never experienced it firsthand. It was quite entertaining! :rotfl: Something to do with a huge outdoor shopping mall, a 5th park, new resorts, etc. I sat on that bus for 45 minutes while he waited for it to load (another reason I prefer driving to the parks).

Anyway, I finally got back to the resort and after getting a little lost finding the room (:rolleyes1), I made it. Brynn was fine, she just had a little gas.

So I tried to get them to sleep while I just relaxed and watched tv. Darren ended up getting back to the room at about 12:30am. Him and Chris just bounced from ToT and RNRC about 15 times. They had a lot of fun and I'm so glad I made them stay! I would have just been a burden anyway, since I don't like those rides.

So that concludes our Monday. Many more pics to come on next, it's our Halloween party night!!! :thumbsup2

No judging here... I don't either. In middle school if you recieved certain grades for a 6 weeks you got to go on a field trip to see star wars when it came back out in theaters and miss class. I didn't go because I didn't like it so much. Good on my end though. I got to help the teachers decorate classrooms, and grade papers, because I didn't want to go but earned the privilage.

Then we went and got in line for Muppet Vision 3D. Now, I love a good 3D show, but if I'm being honest, this one is way outdated. Philharmagic puts it to shame. I know the muppets are classic, and I think it's a good show, the graphics just need to be updated.

This is one of my favorites also, but agree that it would be much more appreciated if it were updated. Especially with the new muppets movie coming out

Yay, thank you so much for posting!! I agree, the heat was a killer. And Brynn was so young that she wanted to be held a lot and holding her made it seem even hotter! I said I wouldn't go back to Disney in the heat, but that's such a lie. I'd go to Disney anytime of the year :rotfl:

He just doesn't really want to go by ourselves and his parents won't go. I'm totally fine with going by ourselves, I think it would be good for us.

Ok, so I'm trying to talk Darren into a November trip. Not sure if I mentioned it here before but we were going to go, then we weren't, now I want to go really bad! He just doesn't really want to go by ourselves and his parents won't go. I'm totally fine with going by ourselves, I think it would be good for us.

I'm dying to go to MVMCP and to see everything all decorated for Christmas! I've never been during that time. Guess I'll have to break out my Mouseworld Radio app and try to get him excited! :rolleyes1

I am hoping he will say yes for you. Tell him, just think how beneficial it will be for your business as a travel agent. You could giver personal experience of Christmas time;)

Oh, I hope he gives in and y'all can go in November! I'm like you--I've never been around that time of year and would LOVE to see the decorations! I'm sure it would be so much fun! Keep working on him, and good luck!!:)

Tuesday, September 27th

We slept a little late this day and took our time getting ready. We knew we had a long night ahead of us so no need to wear ourselves out too early!

We took a few pics...

Then we hopped into the car to head to Animal Kingdom. It was another insanely hot day!

We stopped at Rainforest Cafe for lunch (no pics?! Sorry!) and then Darren, Chris, and I went to Dinosaur while Darren's parents entertained the kids. That one dinosaur at the end ALWAYS makes me duck. It's craziness I tell you!

Darren's parents left and we went to It's Tough To Be a Bug. I was a little iffy about going in here with the kids and finally decided to do it. We sat at the end near the exit in case they got scared but they were totally fine. Whew!

After the show, we got the kids a popsicle.

Then we got in the very hot, very long line for Safari.

Then we headed back to the resort to rest up and get ready for the Halloween party! Here's a little sneak peak...

BTW, if you're wondering why there aren't that many pics of Brayden, he's in the run away from the camera as fast as you can stage. Notice most of his pics he's talking in them. I have to catch the little booger off guard! :rolleyes:

Thanks so much! Is there any reason you haven't been during that time or is it just bad timing?

No particular reason--we've just never been able to make it happen!! :confused3

I swear your babies get cuter every time I see them! The cookie shots of both of them are too precious. It's kinda funny that Brayden would run from the camera!

I so can't wait to see Brynn's entire costume!! Those little shoes make me shriek! lol:)

Glad to know they weren't scared by ITTBAB! Every time we go there, I feel so bad for all the kids who get scared...bless their hearts!

Hey...Ive been lurking for awhile (Im thinking before you had Braydon) but never came out...lol. I love the outfits you had on Brynn, someone made them for you? Also, how old was she on the trip? I have a grand daughter we are bringing to Disney and she'll be 8 months...so I was just curious how big she'll be?!?! Im from La also...Geaux tigers!

Well that stinks! Darren's job won't let him take a vacation after Thanksgiving until after Christmas because that's their busiest time. So we have to go before Thanksgiving but at least they start decorating for Christmas early!

Awww, thank you! Yes, it's very hard to get a picture of him right now!

I know, I feel bad for the scared kids too. I was definitely prepared to make a run for it if they got scared!

My mom actually made Brynn's dress for her first birthday party. She was 13 months on the trip. Brayden's first trip was when he was 10 months. I didn't find it very hard at either age.

I love Brynn's dress and Bray's Tigger tank top. Where did you get the tank top? Looks like a hot day! I agree about the Dino at the end. I was totally ducking and freaking out at the end when I rode it. They need to rename that ride Whiplash! :rotfl: Love the shoes on Brynn! Can't wait to hear about the party

Thanks girl!! I actually have no idea where the tank top came from, I think my mother in law bought it. She buys them SO many clothes. It probably came from JC Penney a year or so ago. This kid can fit into 18 months clothes again! :lmao:

Ok everyone, I'm back! Life has been pretty busy and my trip report went down on the priority list. And if I'm being honest, it wasn't the best of trips so writing about it hasn't been that much fun! But, the Halloween party pics are coming up and I'm going to finish this thing! I may need to get a pre-trip report started soon and I want this one completed first...:rolleyes1

Tuesday, September 27th. Part 2.

Since the trip is over a year ago, the details are mostly foggy, so the remainder of this report will be mostly pictures. I apologize, the next report will be better! I can't believe how young the kids look in these pics. Here are some recent pics so you can see what I mean!

Oh, and did I mention I met Jack Sparrow. Well, in wax form but that's most likely the closest I'll ever get!

http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c281/sweetsugarbabie/johnny_zps2045cf79.jpg

Ok, here we go! After we rested in the room a bit, we got ready for the Halloween party. We have never been to a party at Disney, so we were really excited. This is so unlike me, but I didn't get a chance to research the party more before we left, so we missed out on a LOT. We'll know better for next time I guess.

Our little Mickey and Minnie.

Passed out already!

We got inside the park and there was just a small wait for Mickey so we decided to go for it! I love that they're wearing the same thing.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7024/6636746241_a0eae96732_z.jpg

Notice Brayden isn't wearing any shoes?? Well, I planned on getting the black Mickey crocs that I had seen all over the park before. We looked everywhere but could only find blue ones! So that's what we had to get. He still wears them today!

New shoes!

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7009/6636768945_e7243d83cc_z.jpg

Here's where we made our first big mistake. We didn't eat before the party! So we had to eat at Cosmic Rays, which wasted a lot of time. Next time we'll make sure to eat before the event.

Then we made another mistake! We rode a bunch of rides because there were NO wait times. So like I said, we missed out on a lot of party stuff. We did get to see Hallowishes and watch most of the parade. We had the "Boo to You" song stuck in our heads for months! We still sing it randomly. I love it, it's so catchy! For some reason I didn't take anymore pics this night, so that concludes the Halloween party. Would we do it again? Yes! Would we bring Darren's grumpy parents and bored best friend? NO!

Wednesday, September 28th

I forgot to mention that the day before (the 27th) was my sister's birthday and they were on a cruise! I booked it for them and I had a cake delivered to their room as a surprise to her. She couldn't call or text since she was on a cruise, so I spent most of the day hoping she got her cake! :rotfl: (Turns out, yes, she did get her cake haha. They also came back with a little souvenir in the form of a nephew for me! :lmao:)

This day we decided to head to....

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7002/6636787299_bf0a49eb9f_z.jpg

We were not there early but we went to see if maybe Toy Storia Mania had any fastpasses left. (HA!) We noticed Buzz and Woody were doing a meet and greet so we hopped in line. Brayden LOVES Toy Story!

By the time we got to the front of the line, Brynn was asleep so she missed out on pics.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7161/6636835023_dd10047e86_z.jpg

After meeting them, we noticed that a show for Lights, Motors, Action was coming up soon so we decided to watch that to see the new addition of Lightning McQueen.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7168/6636840439_bc85151f3b_z.jpg

Before we made our way into the show, Lightning McQueen and Mater drove right by us! Brayden was in awe.

Then we found seats for the show. Notice the red faces and sweat. It was SO hot this day.

After the show, everyone was grumpy and hot so we headed back to the room to rest and cool off. After a bit, we decided to go eat at Olive Garden, then head to Epcot for the evening.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7167/6636883451_96e5a28fc9_z.jpg

We rode Test Track and walked around for awhile. The guys decided they wanted to ride Mission: Space so I sat out with the kids.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7003/6636896039_2a3541e554_z.jpg

We rode Test Track one more time and then headed out of the park. Looking back on these updates, our trip sounds very boring! I assure you there were fun parts, but when you're with people that aren't having fun it kind of ruins everything, you know? That's why I'm hoping for a trip for just Darren, myself, and our kids. Keep your fingers crossed! :wizard:

That stinks that you couldn't find a job :( I'm sorry. If you ever feel like booking a trip through me, it would be my pleasure :littleangel: ;) haha! It's so hard to find clients because everyone books their own trips. It's worth it for the benefits that agents get though.

You sound like me, with being so busy! I'll have to head over to your PTR when I get a chance. You're SO lucky staying at the Poly! We stayed there for our honeymoon in '07 and I'm dying to go back. :beach:

Thank you for still reading!! It means so much :goodvibes

Love the last update! The picture of Brynn in Buzz's box is hilarious!! Love the pic of y'all with Buzz and Woody. That meet and greet is so much fun! Your trip doesn't sound boring but I totally get what you mean. It's hard to really do what you want or have the fun you really would like and take the pictures you want when you have downers tagging along. So frustrating!

I hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas! I'm sorry you don't have notes for the last couple of days but definitely still want to see your pictures :thumbsup2

Thanks girl!! Hopefully we won't have any downers coming with us on the next trip, but you never know. My in-laws can be pretty party pooperish with the best of them :rolleyes:

We had a great Christmas, I hope yours was good too!

I do remember something that happened with Princess Aurora! She asked

Brayden if he fought bad guys. He said, "No, I ride go carts!" It was so cute.

And that's the last pic I have! So overall, the trip was good. Chris didn't care for Disney after we played it up so much. He just doesn't have the magic in him, we decided. He won't be going back for a long time! As for us, we'll be heading back in four short months! Yep, we're going in April!! We've never been in April, so I hope it's not too crowded and hot. I will be starting my pre-tr soon so I'll post the link here when I get it going. Thanks to those of you who stuck with me through this. The next one will be much better!!

Fun report and great pics.

:cool1: you are going back. We went last year in April and it wasn't bad. At one point the cheerleaders all came in and then it was bad but other than that it was nice.

We are going May for gay Day so it is May/June with a Star Wars weekend in there too.

Ugh I hope we don't run into huge cheerleader groups! One year we went and they were doing pyramids in front of the tree of life! :rolleyes2
