Hi! :wave2: And welcome to my first trip report! pixiedust: My name is Christa and I will be your guide through our first journey to Walt Disney World! I have wanted to go to WDW since I was a little girl. It took 29 years, but I finally got there and it was wonderful! I am so excited to share our trip with you!!!

Me!! Christa AKA “Mommy” and “Trip Planning Junkie”

I am a planner. Always have been and always will be! I love binder clips, post its, Sharpies, organizing, and making lists. Among my more fun hobbies are photography, scrapbooking, and shopping! I am a pharmacy technician at the largest hospital in my area. I work third shift filling medications for the entire hospital and taking medication histories from patients in the Emergency Department. The best perk of my job? I work 7 nights, then get 7 nights off! It’s like a vacation every other week! So, for the last 8 months or so, my life has been 7 days of work and sleep, then 7 days of Disney planning!

How did I become a Disney Junkie?!

The seeds for this trip were planted at DDs 2nd birthday party, waaaaayyyyy back in 2009!

DHs family lives in Atlanta and we travelled there for DDs birthday party that year. I dont know whose idea it was originally, but it was decided that our first trip to Disney would be for DDs 5th birthday!

Fast forward to early spring 2012 and DH brought up the idea again! I still cant believe he brought it up first! Being the planner that I am, I quickly started asking around for opinions.(Some would say I became obsessed.) A coworker gave me her 2011 Unofficial Guide to read and recommended the Disboards to me. (This would prove ironic, but youll have to keep reading to find out why!)

The advice of most people? Take lots of pictures! Ummmmm do you know me? Do you know my mother?! LOL My mom is known to take 300 pictures from one afternoon at the zoo! Pictures were NOT going to be a problem!!!! (As you will see!!)

Eight months of planning boils down to:

Who? Me, DH, DD, DS, Grandma, and Papa
What? 7 nights at the Hawthorn Suites Convention Center and 6 days at Walt Disney World, including a Princesss 5th birthday spectacular!
When? December 2nd December 9th, 2012
Where? Driving from High Point, NC (us) and Middletown, Ohio (my parents)
Why? Do we really need a reason to spend the holiday season with The Mouse?

If you want to read more about our planning details, you can read my Pre-Trip Report HERE (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2940969).

SURPRISE!!! Can I take my balloons?!

We decided early on that this trip would be a surprise to DD. It really was a selfish decision, because I didnt want to hear Are we going to Disney today? for 8 months! lol So, we began introducing the IDEA of Disney to her. We watched the free DVD from Disney, watched the Disney specials on Netflix, and watched YouTube videos of others vacation highlights. I made a list of movies we needed to watch before going and had a couple Disney Movie Nights.

A couple weeks before the trip, I started getting us in the holiday spirit by putting up our Christmas decorations, watching Christmas movies, and looking at Christmas lights!

There is a house in the town next to us that goes completely over the top with Christmas lights! They are synchronized to music and just beautiful! A couple nights before our trip, we decided to drive over and see if he had turned them on yet. He had! Well, mostly LOL He was working on them that night.

Here is some video! http://youtu.be/L8LkM-QcY5o

On D-day, DH took DD out to Bumper Jumpers to jump the afternoon away. DS and I stayed home to finish packing, cleaning up, and getting ready for the big surprise! I tried to nap since we would be driving through the night, but DS was not cooperating! I think I ended up getting about an hour nap.

We went to dinner that night at the Kung Fu Panda place (Taste of Asia, a hibachi/sushi restaurant near us). I think I was too excited about starting our trip, because I didnt take any pictures!! I always take pictures of our food! LOL We shared a Philly Roll, DH had salad with ginger dressing and Chop Chop (bbq-style pork chop). I had Mushroom Soup (DD ate most of it!) and Sweet Chicken. It was all super delicious!

When we got home, we told DD it was bath and bed time. (hehehe) Luckily, she loves playing in the bathtub, so she was happy to jump right in! This gave me some time to load up the car and get the surprise in place!

See the surprise video! http://youtu.be/YaeBLFl6vo4

DD was so excited!! We put Rapunzel on the DVD player and hit the road at about 10:00 that night!!

Good thing we have a large SUV. Look at all this stuff!!

Here come the pictures!!

I forgot to mention that my parents live in Ohio. They left Saturday morning and stopped in Lake City, FL for the night. Then, we left Saturday night, drove through the night, and met up in Orlando on Sunday! Here are some pics from Mom and Dad’s drive!

They left with their planning folder and cds that I made them in hand!

Our drive was pretty uneventful (and no pics, since it was nighttime). I started driving and DH kept up the conversation to help keep me awake! We stopped at about midnight for a potty break and to get a snack of BK Stackers at Burger King. This was probably the best Burger King we have ever had!! That, or we were REALLY hungry! LOL

There was a snafu with our GPS in South Carolina. Apparently, there is a new extension to Route 1. At least newer than my last GPS update! lol Once we figured out how to get back on track, it was smooth sailing. DH took over the drive around 2:30am. What the heck stinks so bad in South Carolina?! We hit several pockets of horrible stench! Sort of a mix between skunk and raw fish. YUCK!!! About an hour outside of Orlando, I started getting really excited!!! It really hit me when I saw this baby:

ACCKKKK We were SO CLOSE!!!

We got into Orlando about 8:00am, which was way too early to check in our hotel! We were starving, so we found some breakfast! Denny’s was just down the street from our hotel.

Both DH and I got The Hobbit-hole: Two eggs fried right into the center of grilled Cheddar bun halves. Served with two strips of bacon and crispy hash browns topped with melted shredded Cheddar cheese and bacon. OMG This was the BEST breakfast diner meal I have ever had! It was DELISH!!!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc01b3127ccef1bdd2a13f5c00000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

DD had the “Build Your Own Jr. Grand Slam” She picked pancakes, bacon, sausage, and scrambled eggs.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc01b3127ccef1bd7515fe1300000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

Carter was SO excited to see food!! You’d think he was cooped up in a car for 10 hours or something! We ordered biscuits & gravy and scrambled eggs for him. I am a gravy fanatic, so I gave it a taste. SO DISAPPOINTED! It tasted like jarred gravy (don’t know if it is or not) but YUCK!

During breakfast, we got a text from my parents that they were awake, getting dressed, and would be driving into Orlando in a few hours! We still hadn’t told DD that Grandma and Papa were coming to Disney with us!

Up Next: Once breakfast was over, it wasn’t even 9 am yet. What to do?! (http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=47019627&postcount=18)

Your children are precious! I love it that she was NOT letting go of those balloons in the video. Haha.

How was the drive? Did the kids sleep okay in the car? We drove from Maryland on this past trip and split it up into two days, but I'm thinking if we drove again I would want to just do it overnight.

Thank you!!! I had to pry the balloons out of her hands once she got in the car!

Carter fell asleep almost instantly. Olivia did once Rapunzel was over. She woke up to potty once, but she slept til about 7am, I think.

It was nice driving overnight. The hard part was me not getting much of a nap Saturday before the drive. Neither one of us wanted to sleep while the other was driving at night, either! lol We stayed awake by talking about the trip mostly!

We’re in Orlando, I need a Disney fix!!!

We still couldn’t check into our hotel, so we decided to check out what we could of Disney! Our hotel area was only about a 15 minute drive to WDW. I was absolutely giddy to see…..

OMG OMG OMG WE WERE FINALLY IN DISNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The first sign we saw was to the Art of Animation Resort. I had been so excited to see Disney’s newest resort!! DD picked the Nemo section first! By this time, it was getting HOT outside! I remember changing Olivia into shorts and a tank top in the parking lot because she was still in pjs from the drive! LOL Then we headed into AoA!

We caught a glimpse of the Cars area as we headed to see Nemo!

A Cast Member was standing by the police car. I wondered what he was doing there, just lingering, then I realized he was trying to dry the dew off of the car! LOL Poor guy had to keep stopping because people kept coming up to get pictures with the car.

Can I get a hotel room, please?!

AoA was amazing! We decided to leave after seeing the Cars and Nemo sections because we didnt have a stroller yet and it was HOT carrying DS around. We took a shortcut through the building, noting how close together the rooms were! We decided to drive to the hotel and see if our room was ready. I knew that at 10 am, that was a very long shot! lol But, we were hot, tired, and needed a shower! The guy working the front desk confirmed we were going to be placed close to my parents room (Yay!) but that our rooms wouldnt be ready til around 2 pm (Boo!!). So, what to do now? My parents were still about an hour outside of Orlando and we needed a nap! At this point, we had been up for about 27 hours! We found a shady spot in the parking lot, gave DD a coloring book, and took a nap right in the car! DS had fallen back asleep and I thought for sure he would wake up as soon as I closed my eyes, but he didnt! We got a good 1 ½ hour nap before my mom called saying they were getting close! Now remember, DD doesnt know they are coming yet!

We decided to meet at McDonalds for some lunch. We got there first, ordered our food, and started eating. So apparently, there are about a million McDonalds on International Drive LOL And my lucky parents got to see several of them before finding the right one! LOL Mom called and asked to speak to Olivia, so I put her on speaker phone. While they were talking, my parents snuck into the restaurant.

Mom-Are you having fun?
Olivia-Yes.
Mom-Turn around. (Guy next to her turns and looks. lol)
Olivia-Huh?
Mom-Turn around! (Guy next to her turns and looks again!)
Olivia-Huh?
Mom-TURN AROUND AND LOOK!!

Olivia finally realized she was supposed to physically turn around and look! She yelled Grandma!!! and ran to hug her! It was awesome and she was so excited! If I hadnt been so tired and gross feeling, I would have this on video, too. My mom mustve been out of sorts, too, because there arent any pictures from lunch!!

After we ate, it was about 1pm, so we headed back to the hotel. Our rooms were almost ready and the worker said we could hang out by the pool or in the lobby and he would come get us when they were ready.

My mom let us know that if she disappeared, she would be right here in this massage chair!

Pretty fountain in the hotel lobby. The lobby was bigger than I originally thought.

We werent even outside for 5 minutes and he found us saying we had rooms! We were on the 3rd floor, across the hall from each other. We wanted adjoining rooms, but we were in a little alcove at the end of the hall, so we decided it would be okay to prop our doors open so the kids could go back and forth from our room to Grandma and Papas room.

We had our tickets and stroller both delivered to the hotel. This process was so easy! Both were ready and waiting for us at the front desk. The attendant tried to give me someone else's ticket envelope at first. I am so glad I was paying attention! It was totally the wrong name on the envelope!! Our rooms were prepaid for, but we just had to pay a service fee of $2.95/night. This took care of the park shuttle and other perks of the hotel. (We never ended up using the shuttle, though!) The hotel was about what I expected it to be. It wasnt anything extravagant, but it was clean for the most part. We did feel the need to wipe down the counters with bleach wipes, however! Once we moved everything upstairs, we unpacked and got settled in. Shortly after we got settled, housekeeping delivered our crib. This was a free add-on for our room. I almost didnt ask because I thought for sure it would be an extra charge, but I am so glad I asked because DS doesnt sleep well in a pack-and-play.

Apparently, my hubby had a drink at some point!

The men and children decided to take naps. What?! I was on vacation!! No napping for me! I turned on the TV and who did I see? STACY!!!!!!!!!!!!! I didnt think Id get to see what all the hype was about since we were staying off property, but there she was!! This channel pretty much stayed on a constant loop while we were at the hotel! lol I finished unpacking and caught up on The DIS and Facebook for awhile.

Once dinner time rolled around, we cleaned ourselves up a bit and headed out!

UP NEXT: Where were we headed on our first night???? (http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=47098771&postcount=38)

I did take a couple photos right after we surprised Olivia! I almost cried when Olivia yelled “GRANDMA!” and the whole restaurant stopped! I did feel sorry for the guy eating the big mac that kept turning around when he heard me telling Olivia to turn around on the phone! haha

I can't post the pics until I have 10 replys. So, I'll be posting more evidentially! hahaha

I felt the same way Christa did about the hotel. It wasn't the best place I've ever stayed but, it wasn't the worse either. It does need some repainting, updating, etc. The breakfast area and pool areas were very clean though. The bartender was very entertaining.:rolleyes1 Am I allowed to say that on a Disney thread? hahaha Let's face it, we were doing Disney on a budget and it was a good deal for us! DH did say when Carter turns 5 and we go back, he wants us all to stay on Disney property! I'm just happy he said that we were going back since he isnt an amusement park or crowd fan! :banana:

The Boardwalk!

It took us a few minutes to find the Boardwalk. I dont know if we kept missing the signs or our GPS was wrong, but I think we turned around about 10 times before we found the right parking lot!! In the midst of being lost, my parents thought they lost us because I had to make an emergency stop for gas!

Big River Grille

I didnt want to make any ADRs for our arrival day just in case something went wrong and it took one of us longer to get into Orlando. So, I picked Big River Grille! I had heard mixed reviews, but I thought it would be a relaxing dinner for our first night. We were seated within probably 5-10 minutes.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a5aefcdcd900000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

Carter was entertaining himself.

Olivia picked mac & cheese, carrot sticks, and mashed potatoes

And chocolate cake for dessert.

My mom started off with a house salad with ranch dressing. She said it was very good!

She had the salmon for her entree. "Atlantic Salmon - Fillet flame-grilled and topped with dill butter. Served with garlic mashed potatoes and veggie of the day." Her veggie of the day was green beans, obviously!

I had the meatloaf! It also came with mashed potatoes and green beans. "Flame-Grilled Meat Loaf - Made with ground beef and Italian pork sausage. Topped with a rich, brown gravy and served over garlic mashed potatoes with veggie of the day." It was really good!! And HUGE!!! I ended up taking most of it back to the hotel and DH and I had meatloaf sandwiches a couple days later.

I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant! Everything was really good. The portions were HUGE! I should have split a meal with DD, but oh well! DH and I ended up eating my leftovers later in the week. DS started opening up and was going stir crazy! (This would be a recurring theme throughout the week!!) I was so ready to get out of there and get some fresh air after a few minutes of that!

Strolling along the boardwalk, we came across a magician. I dont know if he was supposed to be a bad one, or if he was just realllllly bad. LOL He was trying to make a ball of paper disappear and just threw it behind him. DD was like Ummmmm its right there! LOL

DD watching the magician...not impressed! lol

We meandered our way through, passing Cape May, and back outside to find Beaches and Cream.

Watching Mickey Mouse cartoons!

My dad and I got in line to place our orders. I am surprised by how small Disney restaurants are. It was very awkward to order take out, too. There were two lines right inside the door. One to order your food, then you had to push back through the lines to stand in the 2nd line of people waiting for their takeout orders.

While waiting, we joined in a round of “Happy Birthday” to someone dining in the restaurant. Once back outside, we devoured our ice cream!! My parents split a vanilla sundae and we split a Butter Pecan milkshake. YUM!!! It was really difficult to make our way back to the parking lot after a full meal and dessert! LOL We must have been delirious, because there aren't any pictures!

We made our way back around and back to our cars.

Awesome the Christmas decorations are so pretty!
That does look odd about beaches and cream but I am also not surprised. Disney does have some odd lie policies.

Im going to cry!

My parents could not believe I was making them get up at 6AM! "But, rope drop!!!!" I whined! LOL Then, as I was falling asleep, I realized the park opened at 9am and not 8am...they could sleep another hour! LOL Of course they were asleep and didn't get the message until they were already up in the morning. Oops!!!

Did I mention our hotel had a free hot breakfast buffet every morning? This turned out to be perfect for us! It was open from 7-9:30am and had a variety of hot and cold foods every morning. Just like the hotel room, it wasnt anything extravagant, but it saved us at least $20 every day on eating breakfast out!

These are the pins I started out with!

Magic Kingdom, of course!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pulling onto WDW property

We parked in Simba 11, just a few spots up from the tram stop! We parked and made sure we had all our necessities.

Diaper bag...check!
Autograph book...check!
Pins...check!
Tickets...check!
Snacks and drinks...check!

We loaded the stroller up and went to wait for the tram. I don't remember it waiting too long before we piled in!

When we got to the TTC, we unloaded the tram and went back and forth for a few minutes about whether to take the monorail or a ferry. We decided on the monorail and started up the hill. I thought it was so rude that people were pushing their huge double strollers right into the monorail! We got the kids out and folded up our stroller to make as much room as possible. (We learned the error of our ways when we saw that EVERYBODY just pushed their kids onto the monorail. So, we ended up doing the same. It really was a huge headache to get the kids and all our bags out and fold it up each time. lol)

We ended up missing rope drop, after all. We got there at about 9:15. Oh well, I was just happy to be there at all!!

I had prepared myself so much for this trip, but what I was NOT prepared for was what I encountered walking into Magic Kingdom! "There's Snow White!" "There's Marie, the cat!" "Look at the horse!" I was pulled in so many directions at once!! It was so overwhelming! First things first, though. We needed to get Olivia's birthday button!

On our way, we saw a photopass photographer. We had bought into a PP share, so we needed to get a PP card. We asked him if he would take our picture. "Sure!" he said, so we went and sat down on the bench decorated for Christmas and waited for him to snap a pic. And waited....and waited...ummmm "Is he going to take our pic?" LOL The guy was just standing there with his back to us, looking out into the crowd. "I guess not." At that, he turned around and said "Do you want your picture?" I said "Ummmm yes!" lol He said "Well, you didn't ask!" OMG lol Oookayyyyy so we finally did get our first PP pictures! (And I don't even have our PP cd yet to show them to you.)

So, we got DD's birthday button and continued taking some pictures in the midst of all the madness of Main Street!

Cinderella Castle

Cinderella Castle is seriously the most beautiful sight!!! Be prepared for a million pictures of it!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a5ed781dd400000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

We thought we would get in line for Snow White. The line seemed short enough. So we walked toward City Hall.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc01b3127ccef1bc5b34de6900000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

We got in line and was told we would start the 10:00 line. It was just after 9:30 and I didn't want to spend my first hour in MK waiting in line. So, we decided to move on. My dad had disappeared, so my mom told us to go on. They would catch up with us! Apparently, they had some fun without us! lol

Storybook Circus

When I left off, we had just ridden the teacups twice in a row. Well, that may have been a little too much fun! LOL DH and I were a tad bit dizzy. But, it was time to go to the circus!!!

We took off for Storybook Circus. Meanwhile, my parents were still having fun by themselves!!

Rocket with Goofy!

DD had a mini melt down in the shop because she wanted a Minnie doll. I knew my mom had already bought her one from Disney's website, it just hadn't arrived yet, so I tried my best to talk her out of it. I eventually just had to tell her "No!" We walked outside and my dad had bought me a Mickey pin! I mentioned I wanted to look for the "nerd" line of pins. I'm not sure what the actual title is, but it's the ones where the Fab Five are all wearing glasses. It is so cute!

We handed off the baby to my parents for a few minutes. DH, DD, and I headed to The Barnstormer! I had heard this was the best coaster for DD's first "thrill" ride.

SHE LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She was giggling the entire time! hahaha This is such the cutest little roller coaster. I wish we would have had time to ride it again this trip, but we didn't ever make it back to Storybook Circus. There was just so much to do in one week!!

Just beautiful!!

We stopped at the restrooms to go potty, change the baby, and a photo shoot, of course!

We wanted to ride Under the Sea-Journey of The Little Mermaid Ride, but it was temporarily closed. So, we did the next best thing....the meet and greet!

This line was long! It was about 45 minutes. We left DS, who was napping in the stroller, with my dad.

So, how do we pass the time? More pictures!

We were all so impressed with this Meet & Greet! I loved how they stop you before entering the room, so that when you turn the corner, BAM! There is Ariel!! And you have the entire room to yourself! We didn't feel rushed or anything!!

Ariel saw DD's Birthday Button and asked her if she was having seaweed cake and ice cream! lol

DH fell in love with Ariel. He kept saying "Wow, she's so beautiful!"

First picture I've seen of Ariel meet and greet! I love that it is her fin attire since you can Seeger in her dress elsewhere.

Under The Sea

When I left off, we had just met Ariel in her fin at the new Meet & Greet! We scurried on over to see if Ariel's ride was back up and working. It was! My dad decided to join us for this one since the wait wasn't too long (about 15 mins, I think) and Carter had woken up from his nap.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a5fc4fdc4300000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

We got in our clamshell and.......the ride stopped! :( We were assured it wouldn't take long and to stay seated. So we waited...and waited...and waited. It probably wasn't as long as it felt, though.

Finally, we were off!

An Unexpected M&G and the Poly

It was getting close to our 1:10 ADR for lunch at Kona. I knew we had to leave the park and hit the monorail or ferry boats to The Polynesian, so I wanted to leave in plenty of time. It was nearing 12:00, so we had better be off.

We left Fantasyland and were rounding the castle, when we saw the Fairy Godmother! She must have just gotten there because there were only 2 families in line! We couldn't pass this up!

We must have stopped to take pictures of the Partners statue, too. It is one of my favorite things in Magic Kingdom!

We decided to take the ferryboat over to the Polynesian! It was a beautiful ride!!

Of course, Carter wanted to throw his paci...and then cry for it...and throw it again. lol Here is me attempting to entertain him!

We wound our way up to Kona, which was pretty easy to find. Once we checked in, it wasn't a long wait.

DH and DD relaxed in the lobby, waiting for our ADR.

Finally, the FOOD!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a40439fc0500000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

Again, I was very surprised by the size of the restaurant. It was so small! I guess this is why reservations are snatched up so fast!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a4d25b7d3c00000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

Our server was very talkative and nice. I can't remember her name, sadly! But if I remember correctly, she was from North Carolina, as well!

We started off with an appetizer of Sticky Wings! Glazed chicken wings with a tangy mustard drizzle and toasted sesame seeds

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a592955d9e00000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a506d2dca300000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

I could have eaten the entire plate of these! They were delicious!!! Everybody loved them, but my dad said "Yeah, they were okay." Way to spoil everyone's Disney food high, Dad!! LOL Everyone else wanted to lick the plate clean!!

For our entrees, my dad had the turkey sandwhich. Kona Turkey Sandwich - Turkey Breast Roasted daily and served on a house made bread with caramelized onion, Purple Haze Hoisin Mayonnaise, Arugula, tomato and Bacon. Served with Asian Pear Slaw

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a452157d3200000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

Multiple food angles are a must!
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a41a9d7d9e00000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

My mom had to tell him that arugala was just a type of lettuce :) He doesn't eat fancy food very often! He said it wasn't the best sandwhich he's ever had, but it wasn't the worst, either. Sigh. And the slaw was weird to him!

My mom and I both had the Polynesian Plate Lunch. Your choice of Pan fried chicken with coconut mango sauces or grilled steak with grilled pineapple salsa. Both served with sticky rice and macaroni salad. We both picked the chicken.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a4d8987dfa00000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a5b5221da200000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

Oh my WORD! This was delicious!!! The coconut mango sauce was so good! And my chicken was crunchy outside and juicy inside. The sticky rice has just the right amount of "stick" to it LOL I had no complaints about this dish!!

DH had the Big Island BBQ Pork Tacos. Pulled pork slow cooked in housemade BBQ sauce with tomato salsa and jalapeno lime sour cream. Served in a house made shell with pasta salad and smokey bacon slaw.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a5f7ed1d4c00000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

He loved this! I had a bite and thought it was very good, as well. I didn't want to give my dish up, though! After about 10 minutes, I asked DH "Oh, so do you want a bite of my food, too?" LOL

Carter only wanted to eat fruit and crackers. LOL I have A LOT to teach him about food!!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc01b3127ccef1bc4dc7de9100000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

We all decided to order dessert, as well. It didn't help that the first thing you walk by while being seated is the dessert station! LOL

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc01b3127ccef1bc7505de4f00000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

The chef told DH to get the Banana-Chocolate Creme Brulee. So, DH and I split one and my mom ordered that, as well.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a4c9583daa00000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

OMG THIS HAS TO BE THE BEST DESSERT EVER!!! I could go for one or two right now, actually! YUM!!!

My dad ordered the pineapple upside down cake.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a58bee9c4100000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

Of course, he wasn't too impressed! I think he said it was good, though.

I had ordered DD a sundae, but the server whispered in my ear that she was bringing her a birthday cupcake!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc01b3127ccef1bccf2d5f0a00000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

She was so surprised and happy!!

After we finished our meal, we walked over to the gift shop so my mom could look for a purple lanyard. She had put in a large order from Disney.com and it didn't arrive before our trip! :( So she had a lot of pins, but no lanyard to put them on. She didn't find one she liked, though.

We stopped for some Christmas tree pictures.

An aside about my dad's Grumpy shirts: He has a couple of these that he got on his last visit to WDW in 2002. He doesn't wear them often, and dry cleans them when he does, so MANY people stopped him to ask where he got it. They were so shocked when he said he bought it 10 years ago!! So, Disney, if you're listening, you need to make these shirts again. You'd make a killing!

And the pretty outside decorations...

We were pleased to see that the monorail stop was just a few steps away from the restaurant. We were all so full!

Some pics from the monorail:

See the silver tinsel around our stroller? This was the best thing I did all trip, I think!! It made it so super easy to find our stroller in the sea of strollers parked everywhere at WDW!

We ended up going back to the hotel for the afternoon. We all needed a nap after our first Disney park and food experience!!

UP NEXT: Will we make it to see Cinderella light her castle?! (http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=47194442&postcount=62)

Evening Magic Kingdom Festivities

DD dug into her surprise that Mickey left her!
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc01b3127ccef1bc1ac31f1600000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

After we all rested, we got ready again and were heading back to the Magic Kingdom for the nighttime festivities! We were pushing it on time, so I was hurrying everyone along. It is really aggravating to have to park, take a tram to the TTC, then take the monorail to MK, then go through the gates. Ugh!

So, in my intro, I told you to watch for the ironic part of my coworker giving me her Unofficial Guide 2011 book to do my research. Well, she and her husband actually decided to book a trip again this year! And they were going to be there the same time we were!! Hooray!! We had been texting back and forth, but hadn't been in the same place at the same time yet. But, tonight, we would be! They were in a rush to get to MK, too. I think they were heading there from DHS. Anyway, so our texts went back and forth like this: "We're waiting for the bus now." "We're 10 mins from the parking lot." "Okay, we're getting on the bus." "On the tram." "Oh monorail, hurry up!!!!" "We're here!" LOL We finally got to MK and met them near the flagpole. We missed the show, but got to see them light the castle up!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc01b3127ccef1bd8831bed100000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

It was weird, at first, because there was a section of the castle that was not lit up. Just the bottom left portion was black! LOL Eventually, they all came on!

My coworker and her hubby wanted to take advantage of short lines during the parade, so they went off to Space mountain. We tried to find a good spot for the parade. We were told to stand in one spot by a CM, then told to move by another CM. So, we found a 3rd CM and asked him to tell us the best place to stand for the parade! LOL

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a4b276fc1100000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

As beautiful as MK was during the day, it was simply magical at night!!!

As soon as DD saw the balloons, she wanted one.
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a4ad6c3dac00000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

Getting DD her $10 balloon!
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a53491dcf900000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

I told the balloon guy that I admired him. There is no way my clumsy self could hold and manipulate that many balloons all at once!

DD was upset she couldn't see the parade, so my Dad put her on his shoulders, despite his bad back. Anything for his granddaughter!!
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a4243c7d2000000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

I loved the Electrical Parade so much!

Tinkerbell was first. I think I loved her float the most!
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a46df5bc6500000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

You can barely see it, but you can't slap the smile off DD's face!!!

I think this is supposed to be Mickey.

Not only did my spoiled DD get a huge lollipop and an expensive balloon, but she also got a glow-in-the-dark wand. I had actually bought this at The Dollar Tree, though.

At some point, to appease DS, he ended up with the lollipop!

More Electrical Parade and Festivities

Whew...lots of updates tonight! Let's see if I can finish our first full day at WDW!

Next in the parade was the Seven Dwarves!

The big ending was a little out of place, I thought. Although, Patriotic! lol

DD, her balloon, and her glowstick!
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc01b3127ccef1bd07957f9a00000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

The balloon was worth the money, I guess, because it lasted a long time once we got home! At least a month or so!
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc01b3127ccef1bc3d7bde1500000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

After the parade, we split up from my parents, although I can't remember why! We ended up right back together a little further up Main Street to watch the castle show. Along the way, my dad stopped for some chili dogs at Casey's!
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a475a3bc3f00000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

It was pretty difficult to move up Main Street due to the road being blocked off for the parade and people standing on the sidewalk watching the parade. Some parts were one-way only, so we had to walk around a bit to find a good spot for Celebrate the Magic and Wishes!

We found a pretty good spot outside of Casey's. It was off to the side a bit, but most of the castle was in view. I had been told to stand to the side a bit, since some of the fireworks were let off behind the castle.

We enjoyed the changing lights for awhile.

Celebrate The Magic & Wishes!

Once we found the perfect spot, I got out the glow-in-the-dark bracelets I bought at Target beforehand. I gave a bunch to DD and I handed some out to some other kids nearby. When I turned back around, somebody had taken my spot!! So much for doing a good deed!

Between my mom and I, we still got lots of good pictures, though! Enjoy!!

Visiting Some Ghosts and We're FREE!!!!!

After Wishes! was over and I composed myself again, we slowly made our way out of the crowd that was Main Street. We walked toward Liberty Square. Haunted Mansion was one of my "must do" rides for MK, so that's where we were headed!

It is so easy to get distracted at WDW! Along our way to HM, I saw Tiana and Naveen! Their meeting place is SO BEAUTIFUL!! I was so excited and we ran around to get in line. But, they were getting ready to go on break and it would be awhile before they returned. :( So, we kept with the original plan. On to Haunted Mansion!

When we got there, we met a group of teenage cheerleaders that were filing in the queue. Oh great! lol I could just see the wait time creeping up in my head! My dad didn't want to ride, so he kept Carter while the rest of us got in line.

DD was a little apprehensive, but I kept telling her it was a funny ride. I didn't want to feed her fears. As soon as we turned to go into the room where you just see the eyes floating, she covered her face with her hands and buried it in my side. She never looked up again through the entire ride!!

Once we got to the dining room scene, the ride stopped! What the heck?! We were stuck there for maybe 10 minutes or so it felt like. We snapped pictures like crazy, though!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a43e08fc2900000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

I hate the blur, but that's what you get when you photograph ghosts!

After the ride was over, DD looked at my mom and said "Grandma, I didn't see anything because my hands covered my face the whole time!" LOL So cute, she is!

We met back up with my dad and I asked ever so sweetly if they wanted to watch the kids so DH and I could ride Space Mountain. I had checked my Touring Plans app and the wait was only 20 minutes! They agreed to, and we literally went off skipping hand in hand! We were FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

Of course we had to take some pics of the castle along the way. It is so mesmerizing!!

Into Tomorrowland we went!

In the time it took us to walk from Liberty Square, take a few pics of the castle, and through Tomorrowland, the wait jumped up to 40 minutes!!!!! But, we decided to go ahead and wait for it. There was some confusion which line to be in, I remember. We ended up being in the FastPass line and had to go out and back around to get in the right http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc03b3127ccef1b912840e7000000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/line. LOL

We loved Space Mountain!!! It was so much fun! I couldn't believe it was just that little T-bar holding us in, though! haha Oh well...nobody died!

We walked back through Tomorrowland to go meet my parents and the kids. Of course, snapping pictures along the way!

Looking at my mom's pictures, it looks like they had the same idea we had. More castle pictures!

My mom took some pictures from the train station.

We were trying to decide what to do about dinner since we hadn't had anything substantial since Kona. I'm sure we got some kind of fast food on the way back to the hotel, but I can't remember what it was! I will have to check my trip journal when I get home and update! :)

This was it for our first full day at WDW!

Some closing thoughts for Day 1: I am so so so so so SO glad I decided to change our first day from Epcot to Magic Kingdom!!!! I felt like we got so much done this day and DD was amazed by everything!! Our lunch choice was excellent, as well!

UP NEXT: Day 2!!! Animal Kingdom (http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=47290001&postcount=77)

I'm just sitting here at work, feeling sorry for myself that I'm not at Disney!!! Or at least have a trip in the works. Oh well...DH and I are thinking maybe Vegas in the fall. And without the kiddos. Maybe I'll start feeling excited about that soon! Anyway, back to the trip report!!

I went home and looked and after we left MK Monday night, we just got Wendy's for dinner. Nothing too exciting! LOL We needed something quick, hot, and that the kids would eat!

And now for the update....On our 2nd full day, we went to.........

Animal Kingdom!!!

Tuesday morning, we ate breakfast at the hotel again. They didn't have bagels this day, which I was looking forward to, but they had more hot options. Most days they offered either waffles or french toast, eggs, and bacon or sausage along with the cold cereals.

We decided to sleep in a little today, so I think we headed toward WDW around 9:30am.

We parked in the Dinosaur lot, hopped aboard the tram, and got to the gates!

We stopped for PP pics at the Christmas tree. I still don't have the photo cd from our share we bought into. The lady in charge said the disks from Disney wouldn't work, so they are looking into that. Fingers crossed that we get our pics soon!!! I think I will do several posts at the very end of the TR with all our PP pics. So, no worries! You'll see them eventually!!

I had the cutest outfits picked out for my kids (animal themed, of course) and it was so warm that they couldn't wear them! DS had the cutest tiger fleece from Kohls. It had little ears on the hood LOL Maybe there's a pic of him somewhere in it. DD was able to wear the leapord print pants, but instead of the long sleeved black shirt that went with it, I had her wear a pink tank top. She still looked fierce! LOL

Our 2 Week Journey

We were headed to our 2 week journey on safari! The wait time for Kilimanjaro Safaris was about 20 minutes. I almost forgot we had a lunch reservation a little after noon, so we decided to just wait in the line.

Giraffes are my favorite animal EVER, so I was hoping we would get to see them up close. And up close, they were!!! If I felt like getting kicked out of DAK, I could have reached out and touched them!

Has anybody seen the Eddie Izzard stand up about giraffes? He's talking about Noah deciding which 2 animals of each species to take and how he decided. Like surely, he wouldn't have chosen the evil giraffe. But, how do you know if a giraffe is evil? He chews his leaves like this.....

You should all see the clip http://youtu.be/WYcnEonB04E

Okay, back to our giraffes...

After our safari, we headed toward our lunch reservations, taking in the sights along the way!

This is such a cute area! DS was asleep in the stroller, so they told us at the gate to go ahead and roll him into the restaurant instead of parking the stroller. I was so happy to not have to wake him up!

There are so many things to take pictures of in this restaurant!!

DD insisted that the animals were real because she saw them blinking their eyes!

If you've never been here before, every so often it "rains" and the animals go crazy!!

We were in the gorilla room and one wall had a big aquarium on it.

My dad got the Primal Steak.
Center-cut, choice New York strip steak, aged 21 days,
char-broiled to perfection and topped with steak butter.
Served with red skinned garlic mashed potatoes and
seasonal vegetables.

I got the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger.
Our 100% beef burger topped with our Smokin Mojo
BBQ sauce, Cheddar cheese, bacon and a fried onion ring.
Served on a toasted bun with your choice of lettuce,
tomato and pickles.

My mom had one of the specials, so I can't find a description about it. It was some kind of shrimp.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a423493dce00000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

I think this is DH's burger. I'm pretty sure it's mushroom, bacon, and swiss.

I found these at Target for $1.00 and bought them to save money on expensive DAK animal masks lol DD had so much fun with them!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a596cd5dc400000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

I forgot to mention the "best" part about being able to take DS inside in the stroller. The aisle ways weren't wide enough for it!!! LOL It was very stressful at the time, but it's funny thinking about it now. People were NOT happy they had to stand up and push their chair in to let us through!!

This has to be the cutest area EVER!!! We didn't have much time to look around yet, because we were rushing from lunch to see the next Lion King show! My DH LOVES LOVES LOVES The Lion King, so I was really excited for him to see it. Heck, I was excited for ME to see it, too!! We turned the corner and the CM said "Last call for next showing!" OMG!! DH had to park the stroller. I'm not sure what he was doing, but it seemed to take him FOREVER!!! lol Luckily, they still let us in.

The 2 birds during "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" is my absolute FAVORITE part!!!! It made me tear up, it is just so beautiful!!! It was really hard to get pictures of it, though. I knew if I got to come back to this show, it would be my goal to try and get great pictures!

The Lion King show is worth going to DAK, but I think they are closed temporarily sometime soon.

I'm still working on my DH to let me plan another trip this year!!

Camp Minnie-Mickey Meet & Greet Marathon!

We had plans to head straight over to It's A Bug's Life after Festival of the Lion King, but the WDW Gods had other plans for us.

In one of my first updates, I mentioned we had done some Disney movie nights. One of the movies we all loved was The Jungle Book. We all (DH included! LOL) got up and danced around to "The Bear Necessities" and just acted down right silly! lol :banana::banana: I also had that song on our Disney CD I made for the drive down to Florida.

As soon as we walked out of the Lion King show, there was Baloo and King Louie!!! "OMG!" I gasped..."Olivia is going to flip!" And flip, she did! I told DH to go stand in line with her and I would go get the stroller so we could put DS down. (He had fallen asleep toward the end of the Lion King.)

As soon as DH and DD got in line, they were told Baloo and King Louie were going to take a break, but they'd be right back. DH and DD were waiting for them to retun, when DH felt a tap on his back. He turned around and did a double take, because it was Baloo and King Louie standing behind him in line!! hahahahaha He told Olivia to turn around, and she busted out laughing! It was SO SO funny!

Minnie was first! She had a beautiful Christmas dress and decorations!

Olivia couldn't believe Minnie signed her name!

(My dad was sitting with Carter while he napped, if you were wondering where they went! LOL)

Coming out of Mickey's Trail, we were totally surprised to see Pocohontas!

After we met all of our new friends, we wanted to see It's A Bug's Life!

I love all the carvings in the Tree of Life.

DH and I wanted to ride Expedition Everest, so my parents agreed to take the kids for awhile. It looks like they had fun!

We for sure wanted to ride Expedition Everest. Anything else would have been a bonus!

Asia is such a pretty part of the park!

The themeing is awesome at Disney! It has you questioning whether there really is a Yeti or not!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc03b3127ccef1b9fafc0e7c00000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

It was only about a 10 minute wait in the standby line!

Here we go!

Ahh Oh no!!!! The Yeti tore up the tracks!
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc03b3127ccef1b8b44caf9700000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

He's gaining on us!
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc03b3127ccef1b9cc6d0ef600000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

After we survived the Yeti, we had some time to check out Kali River Rapids!

I knew they had lockers, so we stopped by a little kiosk to get some change. We bought a Coke because the lady didn't understand that we just wanted quarters. Then, she didn't give us back quarters for our change. It was quite the debacle! lol

So, we finally got our quarters and headed toward Kali and the FREE lockers! lmao Yes, all that hassle and the lockers were free for Kali riders :) Now we know! We secured all our stuff in there. Unfortunately, that means no pics of Kali :( I couldn't take a chance on my camera being ruined!!

Kali was a walk on! Yeah!!! We loved it. The themeing was just a little hokey, but I know DAK is supposed to be all about conservation and saving the planet, so that's okay :) Of course, I was the one to get soaked! lol (Stay tuned-this would be a recurring theme on this ride!)

After riding and getting our stuff out of the lockers, we headed in the opposite direction we came from. Looking at the map, it seemed like Asia fed right into Dinoland. Perfect! We called my parents to find out they were leaving Dinoland. We decided to continue on that way so we could at least see the area.

Dinoland is such a fun place! I LOVE The carnival atmosphere. The park was getting ready to close, but passing by Dinosaur, we decided to jump in line. It was only a 10 minute wait, so it wouldn't take too long!

This was one of the rides I was looking forward to!

I thought the ride was kind of lame. You wouldn't think that by our ride pic, though, LOL

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc03b3127ccef1b901a4cff100000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

It wasn't scared, just surprised! LOL I didn't expect it to be RIGHT THERE! LOL

Most nights of our vacation run together for me, so I'm glad we have pictures to straighten them all out!

My parents had brought a TON of presents with them. Some were for DD's birthday, but a lot were from our Ohio family for Christmas for both DS and DD. We decided it was probably best to open them over a few nights.

We ordered dinner from Flippers Pizza! It was DELICIOUS!!!!

DH and I enjoyed some mulled after the kids went to sleep.

And then we decorated the room for DD's birthday! We brought a lot of decorations. Some things I made with my Cricut. Originally, I wanted to decorate before my family even got into the room, but it just didn't work out that way. We were up til about 2am decoarting! LOL Anything for our kids, right?!

DD loved it!! She thought Mickey and friends came into the room to decorate. :) I didn't even have to feed her that line! LOL

UP NEXT: Day Three! EPCOT!!! (http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=47806991&postcount=102)

Epcot

When I first planned this trip, Epcot was going to be our Day One Park, because that's what the crowd level numbers told me to do. At the last minute, I decided Magic Kingdom needed to be the first Disney experience and I am so glad I did!!! Epcot was nice, however, it is no Magic Kingdom. If my kids were older, it probably wouldn't matter as much, but anyway......Day 3 was all about Epcot!!!

We started the day off with our free hotel breakfast again.

DS's hair looks like this for about 5 seconds after it's brushed LOL After Christmas, we cut his hair for the first time and it looks so funny to see it crazy curly in pictures!

We went to the park without my parents today. They wanted to sleep in and since they don't ride rides, they planned to meet us around 11am when World Showcase opened up.

(No wonder I have to have so many "chapters" because I have a million pictures of just the Epcot entrance! LOL)

Once we got inside and got our maps and Times Guide, we were very confused where Soarin' was. We stopped by a stand and the map was finally explained by a very nice cast member! I never realized that the colors on the map match up to the colors of the signs in the park. So, The Land is green on the map and The Land signs are green in the park. Duh!! Leave it to Disney to make it so easy!!! After a couple pin trades, we parked the stroller, and went into The Land pavilion.

We asked for Rider Switch pass for Soarin' since DS is too little to go on this one. DD and DH went on the ride first while DS and I sat and people watched.

My parents showed up while we were riding rides.

They wandered over to World Showcase for some breakfast.

DD and I went on Soarin' next. She thought it was so cool that she got to go twice in a row! I had a nervous breakdown because although I knew it was a ride, it feels SO REAL! And I have a super bad fear of heights! lol I held on so tight to DD because I could just imagine her toppling out of the seat. She was leaning over to get a better look and I was having a heart attack! LOL With that being said, Soarin' was my favorite ride at Epcot. It's awesome!

After our ride was over, we went to The Seas with Nemo and Friends.

We rode the Nemo ride, but none of my pictures turned out. I don't remember much about this ride other than the queue was awesome! So it's safe to say I wasn't too impressed with the ride.

We did Turtle Talk With Crush afterward, which was SO funny and cute!!

DD and DS loved watching the shark tank as we waited to go into the show.

Finishing Up Future World

We met up with my parents and, of course, more picture taking happened!!

We wandered over to Test Track. It was just about 11:30am, fast passes were gone, and the wait time was 75 minutes!!!! Looks like that ride wasn't getting done this trip :( I knew it was a long shot because it had just opened after the remodel. I should have ran over there at first to get FastPasses. Oh well.

DH and I decided to ride Mission:Space while my parents could watch the kids. (I was very thankful they were willing to watch them for us!!) When asked Orange or Green, we were ALL THE WAY, BABY!!!! Orange side, please!!!!

When they say this ride is intense, wow do they mean it!!!! When the ride stopped, I was praying it was really the end! LOL Another minute and I might have had to use the barf bags they so kindly provide! LOL When we got off the ride, DH needed to collect himself, so we sat down for a few minutes. I am glad we did the more intense side, but I can safely say I never have to ride that ride again :) lol

Back outside, we stopped for a Mickey bar and a popsicle while heading over to World Showcase.

DH and I wanted to "eat and drink around the world" so once we got to Mexico, it was on!!! We thought a minute about getting a bite to eat, but then came to our senses and got in line for a MARGARITA!!!

We had to stop at Kringla Bakery for some treats. My parents got a cream puff with berries.

My parents sat down to eat and I got very frustrated because the stroller was getting in everyone's way. So, DD, DH, and I decided to go on Maelstrom! I wasn't planning on doing this, but it was the perfect time to do it. It was....interesting! LMAO "Over the falls!!!"

On the way out of the ride, we saw Belle getting ready to greet her guests at Akershus.

China!

At one point, we got separated from my parents. We went to Lotus Blossom Cafe and ordered some egg rolls.

I guess we didn't get any pictures of the egg rolls, but they were really good!!

I really wanted to try something in the caramel shop, but it was super busy, so I skipped it. DH got a beer to enjoy and my parents ended up sharing their hot dog/sausage/frankfurter things. I can't remember exactly what they were! I don't care for sauerkraut, but when in Germany, right?

I was kind of disappointed in the lack of food options in Italy! I couldn't find any carts or table service places. (Was I looking in the wrong spot?) I thought for sure there would be meatballs or gelato or something, but I was forced to get wine! LOL Oh, what a shame!

DH almost got a turkey leg, but he wasn't that hungry.

We moved on to Japan!

We hung around here and fed DS and finished our treats.

My dad got a Kakigori (I think that's what it's called). It's basically a slushie. Yum! He let me taste it and then gave it to DD when he'd had enough. She loved it!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a4e90e3dec00000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ls%3D00203738621720121221121233402.JPG/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

DH ran up to the restaurant to get DS some milk. He came back with some sushi, too! He doesn't get too adventurous when it comes to sushi, so he picked the California Roll.

Olivia was acting so shy for some reason! LOL I think it's because Aladdin was so handsome!! :love::love::love:

We didn't do much in Morocco. I got to see the inside of Restaurant Marrekesh while taking DD to the restroom, though! LOL I wanted to eat there really badly, but I knew my dad would hate it. DD would have loved watching the belly dancers, though. The lady that owns her dance studio is a belly dancer and Olivia just loves it!

This is where our "eating and drinking around the world" fell short. We were just so full!!! LOL And I knew France was next. I took french from 7th grade through college, so I knew the delicioiusness that awaited me in France!!!

As I was eating my crepe, I see an area with just one other family waiting in line. I asked them who they were waiting for and they said Sleeping Beauty!! I couldn't believe there wasn't a huge line of people! We got in line and she came not too long after that. DD was in HEAVEN as this is her favorite princess!! I had never seen this movie as a child and found it at Goodwill right before our trip. I fell in love with it!!! And I'm sad to say, it replaced Cinderella as my favorite Disney princess movie!

The UK

Sadly, we left France. I could have stayed there all day long! We wandered over the bridge into UK and found Father Christmas telling stories.

While we were listening, my mom and Olivia found Pooh and Tigger! They had walked in the back door of the shop right into the middle of the meet and greet! Oops!! LOL

So, we went around front and got in line the right way.

Candlelight Processional and IllumiNations!

By the time we wandered back around to The American Adventure, it was almost time for the Candlelight Processional. Blair Underwood was the narrator for tonight!

CP was awesome! (And we are not overly religious people. It was still an amazing story, amazing narration, and amazing singing!!)

After it was over, the kids were both falling asleep. We put them both in the stroller and made our way back over to the UK. Our plan was to let them sleep and to get a bite to eat waiting for IllumiNations to begin. DH found a bench in Canada while I waited in line for some food.

We split a fish and chips, each had a shortbread cookie, and a drink.

As we ate, the place started to fill up, so we moved closer to the railing so I could get pictures and video without other people's heads in the way! LOL

Hi there!

I'm joining in on your TR a bit late, but I'm really enjoying it! The reveal video with your daughter was SO cute! What a lucky little girl to have such an excellent family!

Btw, I'm not sure if anyone ever answered your question, but the dragon and the little boy float in MSEP is from the movie Pete's Dragon. It's kind of random, but MSEP is an old parade, so I guess it makes sense?

I love reading TRs of first visits! You definitely did your research! I don't know of many Disney newbies who would think to make an ADR at a resort (especially a resort that you're not staying at) instead of in one of the parks!

I'm seriously impressed with your eating & drinking around the world goal in World Showcase! There's no way I could have lasted through that many countries!

I can't wait to read more!

Thanks for reading!! I am impressed with your list of trips! :rotfl: I think I *may* have convinced DH to go back next year for Halloween if we get some things paid off beforehand. :cool1:

I looooovvved all the food at World Showcase! lol Most of it I split with DH and DD. There is so much I still want to try, though!

My dad wanted to sleep in this morning, so my mom jumped in the car with us! After eating breakfast at the hotel, we got on the road! We got to DHS soon after opening.

At the front gates, we had to stop at Guest Services to get DD a new Birthday button. I had forgotten her original one back in the room. The lady inside was so sweet. She said "Olivia, we have a phone call for you!" and put her on the phone. Olivia started smiling SO BIG!! She said it was Mickey Mouse telling her happy birthday! CM customer service is INCREDIBLE!!!!! :)

Of course we were on our way to Toy Story Midway Mania! But we were distracted by how beautiful everything was. I loved this window display!

I may have said this before, but I wish I would have looked more at the maps and figured out the actual paths to take to get to attractions lol I knew where they were in general and in relation to everything else, but I was clueless which sidewalk to take to the attraction. LOL

Pixar Place!

The line for TSMM was already ridiculously long (close to an hour, if I remember correctly) so we decided to get Fastpasses for later. This was actually our first ever Fastpass! All week long, we had been very lucky with wait times or been able to use a Switch off pass. There was a CM helping at the FP machine and she laughed when I told her I was excited because it was our first time! I told her that we would have an extra person joining us later on (my dad) and she gave us an extra FP for him, too! Yay for two CM interactions that WOWed me in the customer service department!

After getting our FPs, we ran into the green army man! DD was very nervous around him lol I don't think she knew what the heck he was. But he was so super sweet!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a5c08c5dae00000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ls%3D00203738621720121222155016763.JPG/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

Of course we had him sign her DHS Autograph book.

While we were there, we decided to try the new Jack Sparrow attraction! Today was it's "official" opening, although I had reading a ton of reviews about it already here on the Dis! DH decided to sit this one out and stay with DS. I'm pretty sure he had fallen asleep and we didn't want to wake him up.

My mom took pics inside while I held DD. They pack you so tightly into the room that she couldn't see a thing! And my arm was getting ready to fall off by the end of the show! lol

My feelings were so mixed on this attraction! I LOVE the POTC movies, but the attraction was just ho-hum for me. The one thing that would make me see it again is the Jack hologram at the end. I wasn't even sure it was a hologram at first!! It is SO good!

Back outside, DS was awake and it was time to go Under the Sea!

I can't remember if my dad met up with us before the show or after. But, we headed down toward Tower of Terror. My parents got some treats for themselves and the kids. Rock n Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror were on the list for DH and me!

I could see it off in the distance!

DH and I first went on Rock n' Roller Coaster! This ended up being my favorite roller coaster in all of WDW!

Funny story. I KNEW (Hello, researcher/planner extraordinaire here) that this coaster takes off fast. However, DH distracted me with trying to put his hat and sunglasses inside the little bag so they wouldn't fly away. I didn't even notice our limousine taxi-ing up to take off and then ALL OF A SUDDEN we were GONE!!! LMAO Hilarious. I'm sure our ride picture was epic. LOL

Meanwhile, DD found her beloved Power Rangers!

This is how she plays Power Ranger at home

Yes, those are underwear on her head. And yes, they are clean! lol

DH and I ended up getting Fastpasses for Tower of Terror because it was getting close to our lunch ADR!

If you ask me, DHS is just a confusing park in general! I've been there tons of times, and I still get turned around, especially over by the Backlot Tour!

OMG I recognize the CM by the Toy Story FP machine! You know you've been to Disney too many times when... lol!

Mickey Mouse rice krispies are my favorite! I'm making my mom bring back one for me when she and my dad go next month. :goodvibes

Awww, your daughter is so cute as the pink Power Ranger! Is that even still on TV? I have no clue! (And now I feel old, haha!)

I'm glad I wasn't the only confused person! lol

hahahahaha Now that's funny! I think I recognize a lot of characters in other people's pictures, but then I think maybe the costume makes a lot of them look alike anyways.

I wanted to try a Mickey Rice Krispie treat and never did! Oh well, another thing to add to my list for our next visit!

Thanks! Power Rangers is on Netflix! She is very into that and Transformers LOL With that and her beloved princesses, she's very well rounded! lol

I've totally fallen behind, but I'm catching up. :)

Love that at home power ranger pic. She's so silly! Where are those Power Rangers costumes? I get so confused in that park, but my boys would be nuts to see them!

The pirate thing is not child friendly at all, is it? My child-holding arms were dying by the end of it, too. You TR just taught me something about it though. I had no idea that was a hologram at the end! I actually thought it was a CM that joined the show. DH is currently cracking up over this. I guess he already knew. :laughing: Thanks for the Disney education! :rotfl:

:rotfl2: hahahaha

The Power Ranger costumes are in a store by the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Sunset Blvd. Maybe LA Props or Legends of Hollywood? We saw it as we were walking from Rock N Rollercoaster to lunch at 50's Prime Time.

I am going to update again soon, I promise! Things have been super busy around here. My blog traffic has been picking up, so I've been trying to write regular posts over there!

When planning, not a lot impressed me about dining at Hollywood Studios, to be honest. 50's Prime Time Cafe seemed to be the best option for all of us. My dad would be happy with the "down home" food and everyone else would like the 50's theme!

It was SUPER busy, so we checked in and went back outside to wait.

Carter's waving "Hi, Grandma!"

Then he got antsy, so I let him run over to daddy!

We had such pretty views while waiting!

Olivia was obsessed with the map. She wanted to know where we were, where we were going next, and how we got there!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc03b3127ccef1b892462ebe00000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ls%3D00401277522420121222215344671.JPG/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

Here she comes a callin'! We waited around 15 minutes. We were all so ready to eat!!! Especially the kids!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a4df4b3db200000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ls%3D00203738621720121222155934115.JPG/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

We were put in one of the small rooms off to the side. We had tvs to watch and only two other tables in the room with us! Our waiter was a little dry, but he knew to take a group picture! You can tell Carter is UPSET and just wants to EAT!!! lol

I ordered a Peanut Butter & Jelly Milkshake! I love peanut butter, so I knew this was right up my ally! It was HUGE and soooo good!!

DH and DD shared a Strawberry Milkshake.

Olivia picked Chicken Noodle Soup for her appetizer.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a40ad2fce900000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ls%3D00203738621720121222160230993.JPG/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

Funny story. When we first started looking at the menu, I asked DH if he wanted to split the Entree Sampler since it came with THREE meats, green beans, and mashed potatoes. "No," he said. Ooooookay. I really wanted to try everything, but I knew I would be miserable if I got that by myself. So I just ordered the fried chicken. I don't really like fried chicken on the bone because it's so messy to eat, but I had just had meatloaf our first night in Disney and I didn't know if I liked pot roast, so fried chicken it was! So the waiter goes around the table taking everyone's order. DH was last. Can you guess what he ordered? The freaking ENTREE SAMPLER!!!!! I just glared at him!!! He claims he never heard me ask. Whatever, dude!!! So between DS acting crazy and that, I was not in the best of moods! lol But my PB&J milkshake made things a little better! ;)

Entree Sampler that DH did NOT eat all of. LOL My parents also got this and split it.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a548aa5dcc00000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ls%3D00203738621720121222160319517.JPG/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

DD chose the grilled chicken with a side of pasta. Disney has HUGE kids portions.

My meal was okay. I was annoyed by how messy it was. I knew better than to get that. Oh well!

For dessert, my dad got an ice cream sundae.

My mom got the s'mores! This looked so good. She said it tasted exactly like s'mores. LOL Wonder why?! I wanted to try it, but I was SO FULL!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc05b3127ccef1a44499fc8500000010O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ls%3D00203738621720121222160543797.JPG/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

Our server brought DD a do-it-herself ice cream sundae. He had everyone sing Happy Birthday to her. She loved all the attention!!!!

An Afternoon in Hollywood

We split ways after lunch. DH, DD, and I had Tower of Terror Fast Passes to use!!! To be honest, I was a tad worried about going on this ride right after lunch, but I figured we'd be okay!! I was anxious for DD since she was so scared of Haunted Mansion the first day! lol But, she had seen video of this ride on one of the Disney specials on Netflix. (If you haven't watched those, go do it now! They're great!!)

She's finding which way to go on her map. LOL

We got seated in the front row!!! So exciting! DH had NO IDEA our seats moved forward! LOL He thought it was just up and down. He was like "*** is going on?!" hahaha So far, DD was surprisingly okay!

And then, the door opened up, I was anticipating the drops the whole time!! LOL Once we started dropping, DD was just giggling so hard and loud!!! LOL She was flying up off her seat and I was frantically trying to hold her down with my one hand! hahahahaha

And in the ride pic, you can see DH holding her down with his hand, too! LMAO

Even More DHS!

After the show, we were meeting my parents at The Great Movie Ride. All of a sudden, I was SO THIRSTY!!! I think the sun was finally getting to me! We stopped at a shop on the corner....it must have been Starring Rolls??? But if it was, I don't know why I didn't get a cupcake! LOL Maybe it wasn't...anyway, I asked for an ice water. They said they didn't have clean drinking water. Ummm okay...so I ordered some kind of Goofy shaved ice drink in lemonade flavor. That was the most delicious, satisfying drink ever!! LOL

While walking, we ran into some people dancing...This show is also Resting In Peace, I believe!

And we arrived at our destination!

While sitting there, I saw some street performers go by. It was these guys:

I hadn't read much about this ride, so I was really surprised that there was live action!

We had the "gangster" side. I didn't even know there was another storyline until I came home and was reading others' trip reports here on The Dis!

After that, we wanted to see Muppets 3D! I know my dad enjoys the Muppets, so it was a must do!!

I just found your TR today, and absolutely loved getting to read through it :goodvibes

I'm generally more of a lurker nowadays on the Dis than an actual commenter, but I had to comment on yours and tell you how much I Loved reading it.

Your kids are adorable, and it looks like you guys had an amazing first vacation (hopefully it will be the first of many for you!)

I agree that the layout of DHS is a little more confusing than the other parks, and even after going there many times I still often have to think twice about where i'm turning lol.

It looks like you guys picked some really restaurants for your trip...we love Kona Café and the rainforest café, I've never been to the one you ate at at the boardwalk, or 50's primetime café but they all looked really good.

Can't wait to hear more:goodvibes

Thanks for stepping out of lurkdom to comment! :) LOL

I'm glad I'm not the only one who was confused about the DHS layout!

Yes, Kona and Rainforest were great!!! Next time I hope to eat at Ohana!!

Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights

We split up from my parents again because we saw the Phineas and Ferb meet and greet! DD had just recently started watching this show and I think she has a little crush on them! LOL

Carter was being loud, so Phineas and Ferb decided to see what all the fuss was about!

After we met and greeted, we took a potty break and got something to drink. We had been in "go mode" for so long that we just needed to sit down. We sat to watch the Osborne Spectacle of Lights for awhile. We figured this would be the best time to tell Olivia all about her birthday festivities that would be happening the next day!

We told her about Bibbity Bobbity Boutique and Cinderella's Royal Table. She started running around in circles screaming "THIS IS THE BEST DAY EVER!!!!!" My little Rapunzel! lol It was such a perfect, happy moment!!!

Now for some Christmas lights pictures!

Sadly, we did not make it in time for Fantasmic! :( We just didn't have enough time to make it to the other side of the park. Oh well, it is a "must do" on our list for next time!!

My parents ended up leaving the park before we did, so they went in search of a bite to eat! They ended up at Senor Frogs in downtown Orlando. They said it was good!! We tried to meet them once we left because there were other kids at the restaurant having a good time dancing around, but by the time we found our car and got out of the lot, they were almost done eating. We ended up just grabbing some fast food for dinner. If I remember correctly, DH and I got Rally's and the kids got McDonalds. We drove up and down I-Drive through Orlando, noting all there is to do for our next trip. We would like to have a couple non-park days to explore outside of The World a little bit.

Here are some pics from my parent's visit to Senor Frog!

Thursday Night at the Hotel

Once we met back up at the hotel, the kids had more presents to open! These were Christmas and birthday presents from my parents and other family members. Plus, Olivia opened her gifts from us for her birthday!

Mickey wreath I made for both of our doors!

:lovestruc::cloud9:HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PRINCESS!!!:cloud9::lovestruc

This day was the day I was most excited about! Olivia's 5th birthday!!!! We woke up SUPER early to make an 8:50 appointment at BBB in Cinderella Castle.

I was sort of worried about DD's hair and how curly it was. So, Thursday night I washed it and brushed it out. Friday morning, I didn't put any product in it and straightened it a little with my straitening iron and a hair dryer. It was very humid and overcast this morning. The humidity got to it FAST! LOL

More Christmas decorations had been put up since the first of the week!

One tragedy occurred. We forgot Carter's pacifiers in the hotel room! All of them! Luckily, I remembered MK has a baby center. DH ran off to buy a couple! Yay! Crisis averted! lol

Probably the only time you will see all these empty seats is before the park opens! lol

We checked in and had to wait a long time to get the makeover started. It was VERY crowded!! So, we just took pictures to pass the time! lol

Finally we were called back. We went into a little dressing room to put her in her princess dress. Then, we got seated with our Fairy Godmother in Training!

She got to pick out a hairstyle. I only cared for one of the styles, so I strongly suggested she get that one. lol And she did!

What an amazing way to spend a fifth birthday:goodvibes

She looks adorable, and so happy and excited!

I cant wait to see what her reaction was to all her other birthday celebrations!

You have got to see Up! It is such a great story. You might need tissues a couple times though. It's definitely one of the best anyway.

I've always loved those little Mickey clips in the BBB pics I see. So cute. Olivia looks adorable after her princess makeover. What a sweet way to start her birthday! That must be so much fun for them. (I only have stinky boys so I'll never know!) I love that she chose blue over pink for her nails. :thumbsup2

She was so happy all day long :) There is a video of BBB I forgot to include. I'll put that first in the next update.

I really do want to see it. Maybe I'll try and find it for my next days off.

I'm looking forward to pirate makeovers when my DS is old enough!

Castle Couture Photo Shoot

What princess doesn't deserve her own photo shoot?

But first, I forgot to include the BBB video I took at the end of Olivia's makeover!

I LOVE how you can tell she's trying not to smile! hahahahaha

Okay, on with the pictures!!!

Side note: Those shoes she is wearing are Crocs. They were WONDERFUL for park walking!!! And no shoe strings we had to tie over and over again! lol

After a BBB makeover, you get a drawstring backpack with the rest of the child's makeup palate, both nail polish colors, and the rest of the rhinestones. We also bought DD a cute Cinderella t-shirt.

I don't know if I said this in my previous update or not, but this $60-ish was the BEST money we spent all week!! I definitely recommend it for any little princess!!

After our photo shoot, we split was with my parents again. I love that we were all so flexible and if we didn't all want to do the same thing, we were okay with splitting off and meeting up again later! That's the key to travelling with anyone, I think!

Longest Wait for A Princess EVER! LOL
After her princess makeover, DD wanted to meet Belle, of course. She was dressed like her, so why not?! I had heard about the change up of princesses at Cinderella's Royal Table, so I knew she wouldn't meet her there at dinner. The only place to meet her this day was in her new attraction, Enchanted Tales With Belle. So, off to New Fantasyland we went. I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw a 70 minute wait. SEVENTY!!!!! Ugh. We had been so lucky with wait times so far. I did not want to stand in line that long. Especially with Carter, who was not patient for that long! lol But it was DD's birthday and this is what she wanted to do. DH agreed he would walk around with Carter while I waited in line with Olivia. He's such a good daddy! :) So, Olivia and I got in the longest line ever lol

She did befriend two very cute girls in line, so that passed some of the time.

The details are amazing in Maurice's house.

We loved this attraction!

After, DD and DH rode the carousel.

We stopped for lunch next at Pinocchio's Village Haus. I must have been super hungry, because there are no pictures!! We all shared a flatbread pizza and a meatball sub with some fries. It was good!

Meanwhile, what were my parents up to?

They made their way through Adventureland!

Liberty Square, Frontierland, and Adventureland

We ventured through Liberty Square...

And headed to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad!!!

DD and I went first. DH got a child swap and walked around Fronteirland with Carter in the stroller.

We loved this coaster!! Olivia giggled the entire time. I wish I had been taking video to record those sweet sounds!! Once we were finished, DD and DH headed through the FastPass line.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc03b3127ccef1b921aecfeb00000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ls%3D00401277522420121222220207512.JPG/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

We wanted to ride Splash Mountain, of course, but I didn't want Olivia's dress or hair to get messed up before dinner with the princesses. So, we skipped by that this time.

On to Adventureland! My #1 stop for here was POTC, of course!!

Loved POTC!!! We had just watched all the movies, too, so that made it extra nice!!

Next, was The Jungle Cruise!!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc03b3127ccef1b9e3984e8c00000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ls%3D00401277522420121222220158175.JPG/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

I can't remember our guide's (skipper's??) name, but she was hilarious! I was laughing so hard the whole time. I think DH was getting tired, because he just wasn't getting any of the jokes LOL

Fairies and Celebrate A Dream Come True

I knew DD would love to meet Tinkerbell. It was double great because she had just got and LOVED the new Tinkerbell movie with Periwinkle in it and Peri was meeting with Tink now!

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc03b3127ccef1b803f66ede00000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ls%3D00401277522420121222220043331.JPG/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

I didn't tell her who we were meeting while waiting in line.

She was so excited when we turned the corner into Pixie Hollow! And it was SO pretty!!! I love the great themed M&Gs like that b/c they make me feel like I'm a kid again, too!

I asked Tinkerbell about some details of her movies. I had always wondered if her new movies came before or after she met Peter Pan. And why had there been no mention of him in her new movies?? She said that both her and Peter come from the same place and that there should be a movie coming out soon all about that! I was glad to have some kind of answer, although vague! lol

Next up was Peri!

DOLE WHIPS!!!!! This had been on my "must eat" list since day 1 of planning! lol DH didn't want to wait in the line. I just had to have one. He was afraid we wouldn't get to do anything in Tomorrowland before our 4:15pm reservation at CRT. So I told him to go on with the kids. They could do Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor and I would get my Dole Whip and meet them in Tomorrowland. This ended up working out perfectly!

OMG YUM!!! I want one RIGHT NOW! *Sigh!*

On my way to Tomorrowland, I got caught by the Celebrate A Dream Come True parade. I am so glad I did because this ended up being my favorite parade out of all of them!!!!! It is so magical and the princess float is so sparkely and pretty!!!

Where We Get Spit On & We Dine With Royalty

I finally made my way over to Tomorrowland. DH and the kids were just coming out of Monster's Inc. Laugh Floor. DD Loves Lilo & Stitch, so I wanted to take her on Stitch's Great Escape. Yes, I had heard the awful reviews, but part of me just wanted to see it for myself! lol

It was as pointless as I had heard!

Despite not knowing what was going on, DD wanted a stuffed Stitch.

Then, we met my parents back at CRT to check in for our reservation! Yay!!!!

I will show the PP pictures with the whole group at the end of the TR.

We didn't wait long before we were called up to our seats!

The Food!

I had paid for our CRT reservation 180 days out when I made the reservation. I choked a little paying, but I was sure the food would be worth it. Would it live up to the price?

Cheers!

Then our appetizers came. I think this is a Tomato Bisque.

I got the Trio of Cheeses. I was excited because I like cheese! I should have known, though, that they would be stinky cheeses! LOL The pairings worked well together, but the cheeses I could have done without! Half way through, I switched with DH and ate the rest of his salad. It was super delicious with the nuts and huge Romano shaving!

And Risotto for moi!!! Yummo! The little herb salad on top really made the dish wonderful.

And then there was DD's pizza. Over $30 for her spot and this is the entree she got. It was like 4 inches across! LOL (Her appetizer had been some grapes and cheese cubes.)

Ariel came around during dinner.

Meanwhile, to my right, Carter had been throwing a royal fit the entire time!!! I just did not want to be strapped in. He kept throwing things and dropping food on the floor. Oh my word. Stressful! lol

Dessert and an Evening In Magic Kingdom

Dessert!!! A couple of us got the Chef's Trio. It was a Pumpkin Cheesecake, some kind of cream, and a flourless chocolate dessert. OMG It was so good!

The staff sang "Happy Birthday" to Olivia and she got another decorate-it-yourself cupcake and ice cream.

I picked Carter up once we were done eating and he kept trying to grab at my pins. LOL

Back outside the restaurant, the castle was all lit up!

My parents wanted to leave, but we stayed in Fantasyland. We had until 7:00 to ride as many rides as we could on our last evening in Magic Kingdom. There was a MVMCP that night, so we had to hurry! I wanted to get some classic Fantasyland rides out of the way!

To be honest, this whole couple hours are a blur! I was so happy and in such a rush to get these last few things done that I don't hardly remember it!!

It's A Small World

Then we did Philharmagic! (Loved this!!)

About that time, it was nearing 7:00, so we made our way back in front of the castle and down Main Street.

As we left MK, it started snowing on Main Street! And the CMs started coming out in their Christmas Uniforms. It was so unbelievably cute and magical!!!! We weren't able to buy tix to MVMCP, but I'm glad we got that tiny glimpse of it! :)

As we neared the monorail to the parking lot, we saw this:

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc03b3127ccef1b8a3b26eca00000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ls%3D00401277522420121222215823429.JPG/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

Wall to wall people!! UGH!

We stood in line for a long time, making conversation with a nice family visiting from England. At one point, there was an announcement that the a monorail tram had broken down on the track and we would all have to turn around and take the resort monorail. Now, keep in mind we had been moving toward the front of the line. So now when everyone turned around to head the other direction, we were now in the back. Again! Double UGH!!!!

Thank Goodness the kids ended up falling asleep in the stroller.

When we got back to the hotel, my parents said they were out at the bar/pool area. And they had BOGO drink coupons! Yeah!!

This was my parent's last night in Orlando, so I'm glad they got to enjoy it relaxing! We headed back up to our room and had some caramel apples they picked up on their way out of Magic Kingdom. They were so good!

DAK

Saturday was our last day in Disney :( But we were going to make the most of it!! We had left this day open to whichever park we either
a.) liked the most or
b.) felt like we missed the most in

Well, of course MK was our favorite and it was my first choice of which park I wanted to return to. Buuuutttt....it was a Saturday and the crowd level was a 10. That sounded very stressful to me and I figured we wouldn't get to do a lot, so we picked our 2nd favorite park: Animal Kingdom!

We were excited to ride Kilimanjaro Safaris again to see how different it would be. The wait was longish by the time we got there, so we decided to fastpass it and check out the animal trail while we waited.

Olivia and Carter split a snowman cookie.

They were both very delicious!!

Here's a sneaky peek at the other deliciousness they have at this bakery:

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc03b3127ccef1b956f18f1700000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ls%3D00401277522420121222221041051.JPG/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

We ate in a little corner to the side of the bakery. It was in front of an exit for a restaurant...I guess it was Tusker House??? It smelled divine!! We may have to eat there next time we visit. Has anyone eaten there? Let me know if it's as good as it smelled!

We studied the show times for a minute and decided we would see Festival of the Lion King again! It is such a great show. My favorite in all of Disney! I wanted to try and get better pictures...and maybe some video, this time!

When we finished the trail, I stood on the bridge waiting to see DD and DH come down the hill on Kali. Waited...and waited...and waited. So I thought maybe they got through quickly and were trying to find me. I had DH's phone (so it didn't get wet) so he couldn't call to say he was done. So Carter and I walked around the area for a few minutes, but didn't see them. So I took pictures of strangers LOL

Right then, up walked DD and DH! Of course! LOL I wanted to eat that whole pretzel, but I had to share lol

It was my turn to go on Kali! DD could have ridden it a million times and still had fun!!

DH manage to snap the picture I was trying to get...

I ended up riding with another single rider. Her husband had been in line with her, but decided against riding. He thought it would make him too sick. Poor guy!

It was so fun!!! I can see why the height limit is so high, though, because it does jerk you around a lot. I didn't mind, though! I loved it!!

Next up was Nemo: The Musical!!

The concept of this show is really good. The colors are fantastic and the actors/singers were great!! It kept my attention by looking from the puppet to the actor and back again. HOWEVER...I do kinda wish it wasn't the exact storyline as the movie. I mean, I've seen the movie. Give me something new! I ended up having to walk out with DS because he was just too cranky at that point.

Time to Eat!!!!

It was getting close to closing time once the Nemo show was over. We stopped in the gift shop and get a few things. (Surprisingly, shopping was NOT one of my priorities this week and we had barely bought any souvenirs!)

I'll do a post at the end with pics of what we ended up bringing home!

I had bought a Groupon for a pizzeria in Orlando, but couldn't find many reviews for the place online,

Franceesco's
5667 Vineland Rd
Orlando, FL 32819
(407) 345-5490

It was SOOOO GOOD!!!! I am so glad we ate there. The people were very nice, too. It is just a small, family owned restaurant. Nothing fancy, but the food is awesome! And it was nice to have something that wasn't park food or fast food.

Their menu is huge...about 4 pages long.

Our appetizers: onion rings and mozzarella sticks

For our pizza, we got ham and pineapple.

Cheesecake for dessert! (This is premade cheesecake, but they were up front about that from the start.)

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc03b3127ccef1b88cfd2e0a00000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ls%3D00401277522420121222221628680.JPG/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

And now, I'm at the end of our vacation :( :( :( :(

The next morning, we got up early. We checked out of the hotel and headed toward home. We stopped at Burger King for lunch (Hello, BOGO Free Whoppers!!! What?! lol) We also stopped at a Florida Souvenir shop...you know the ones I'm talking about lol They're everywhere!!

Once we got back home, life got back to normal. The hospital that DH and I work for had a big holiday lunch catered in for everyone, so we attended that. Talk about a feast!! They know how to do it right! lol I had to stop by work anyway to put some Secret Santa gifts into my person's mailbox. And I had a ton of candy from my Secret Santa!

We had Christmas to look forward to, but I was still devastated to be home from Disney! lol I had Post-Disney Depression really bad!!! Ugh.

UP NEXT: The TR isn't over yet!!! See our PhotoPass pictures! (http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=48438238&postcount=156)

PhotoPass Pictures Post #1

Since we did a PhotoPass Share through a Facebook group, our cds didn't arrive for awhile. I had already started the TR, so I decided just to save the PP pics for some posts at the end.

Some cups for the kids

And an awesome mug with just about every Disney character and several WDW icons. (And it's huge!!) Here are some pics from all angles so you can see all the design.

Saturday night, before dinner, we stopped at one of the Disney Outlet stores. I think it's the one at the Orlando Premium Outlets on International Drive.

I found a comfy t-shirt

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cc03b3127ccef1b817f26ed000000030O00AaMmTVu3ZMW gPbz4K/cC/f%3D0/ls%3D00401277522420121222224145283.JPG/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

and some Christmas ornaments!

The prices here were really awesome! I would recommend looking here before buying stuff on property. You never know what they might have!

On the way home, we stopped at one of those Florida Souvenir Shops and picked up a few things.

Florida oranges, bbq sauce, and Vidalia onion dressing. Olivia picked out a shirt and a bouncy ball. The clerk threw in some salt water taffy for free!

Closing Thoughts

This vacation really was a once in a lifetime experience. We all have so many wonderful memories from this week. Here are some of my favorites:

*Walking onto Main Street, USA for the first time and being pulled in so many different directions at once. I had planned and planned, but was still unprepared for how overwhelming and wonderful it is!!!! <3 <3 <3

*Seeing Cinderella Castle in person after admiring it on tv and pictures for so many years!!

*Running up to ride the teacups with Olivia!!! The excitement was so overwhelming!!!

*Seeing Olivia's face light up on each ride. I hope I never forget the sound of her giggles!

*Walking hand-in-hand with my husband in the most magical place on earth!

*Expedition Everest- it made my hubby cry...'nuff said! LOL

*Staying up and decorating our hotel room until the early morning hours. And Olivia thinking Mickey and friends had come overnight to surprise her!

*Riding Toy Story Midway Mania with Carter. He really did enjoy himself on that ride, despite being only 1 year old! haha

*Walking out of Magic Kingdom for the last time with the Christmas Party starting and snow falling on Main Street.

There are SOOOO many more!!!!! I can't wait to go back. Yes, I am a Disney convert. You all have pulled me into this obsession and I can't get enough!!!! hahahaha

Thank you all SO MUCH for following along on our trip! I have enjoyed revisiting all the pictures and stories. It just keeps the magic alive for a little longer. :)

I have DH convinced (I think) to go back October 2014. So throw some WDW magic dust our way so he agrees!!! LOL

Wow, I timed that just right! I just found your trip report and read the whole thing straight through.
What a great report!! It looked like you had a near perfect trip. And you took some beautiful photos.
I have a feeling your little girl will be a Disney fan for life after that experience.
I like how you took some of your photos from different angles than what I usually see.
Thank you for shareing your trip. I really enjoyed it a lot.
