Once upon a time, in the distant lands of New Hampshire and Illinois lived 3 ordinary Princesses with extraordinary lives. You see each of these princesses although they didnt know it yet their lives soon would be intertwined for all time.

One Princess worked as a part time bookkeeper and managed the daily needs of her two young sons who needed extra special love and care. She found respite in a fairy tale book called the DisBoards&

Another Princess worked out of her home, managing a busy life with two young children with her castle being remolded. She found respite in a fairy tale book called the DisBoards&

The third Princess also worked at home caring for her growing family of four and the never ending needs of raising these children and caring for her injured Prince. She found respite in a fairy tale book called the DisBoards&


As the third princess was planning an ever needed vacation to the Wonderland known as Disney World she met the two other Princesses through the fairy tale book. It came known to them quite quickly they were alike in so many ways.

Years passed and they finally all met face to face with a larger group of Princesses. Before that fateful day though, two of the Princesses were already conspiring a new chapter in their fairy tale book of how to go to this Disney World Together&well now the tale has begun.

Come Join in as these 3 very hard-working Princesses go on vacation together&

Before I get to introductions, I want to thank everyone who is reading along! Our trip was over three months ago, but with family life & the holidays, our TR just didnt happen right away. Im sure our memories are foggy so this will be picture heavy. We hope you enjoy!

And yes, I am cheating... this post & our intros are copied from our PTR! ;)

Before I jump to the introductions (which I have also cheated & copied from our PTR with a few tweeks) I should answer the questions everyone always wants to know... where and when??

We stayed in a studio at the Boardwalk Villas with a pool view. This was my third time staying at the Boardwalk (second time at the villas). This has become my favorite resort because of the location. It can't be beat! It was Heidi & Julie's first time staying there.

We were there from Wednesday 10/10 - Sunday 10/14/12. We were originally booked for Thursday 10/11 - Sunday 10/14 but Heidi convinced us to add on a day to fit in all of the special events we wanted to attend. :thumbsup2

So here we go... who are we?

I’m Amy aka DisMomAmy.

http://i1102.photobucket.com/albums/g448/DisMomAmy2/Oct%202012/87dae331.jpg


I have chosen Snow White as my alter ego for the trip. When I was trying to decide between Snow White & Belle, Julie sent me this description and I knew I had to pick her!

"Snow White is sweet and demure, is great at organization and taking care of a home full of boys."

I love the part about taking care of a house full of boys! And I think she is the princess I most resemble.
http://i1102.photobucket.com/albums/g448/DisMomAmy2/Oct%202012/f38b99ce.gif


This was my 16th trip… most of which have been in the last 5-6 years. I met Julie & Heidi on the DIS – they are two of the first people I met & we have kept in close contact over the years. Heidi & I even get together occasionally since we only live about an hour and a half away from each other here in NH.

At home, I’m primarily a SAHM taking care of my DH & two boys, Alex (12) and Zach (9), who are both on the autism spectrum. I also do some part time bookkeeping to make a little money for my Disney habit! I’ve been married to Tim for 16 years and we celebrated our 15th at Disney in November 2011.

http://i1102.photobucket.com/albums/g448/DisMomAmy2/Oct%202012/aa3798e9.jpg

Our next trip is coming up in April & I can’t wait to get back!

Like Snow White, I love taking care of my boys:

Life can get a little stressful at times:

But can also be lots of fun!

OK so here’s my real family!

I have several PTRs & TRs (links in my signature) that you can read if you want to learn more about us. If you want to read about our planning for this trip, here is the link: Cheers to Friendship – A ladies weekend – Oct 2012 (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2884566)

Greetings! I’m Heidi (MRYPPNS) (Written by Heidi but posted by Amy... sorry for any confusion!)

http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc7/320661_2711712110697_1193725526_3201489_594248077_ n.jpg

I asked the ladies to pick a princess to represent them for the trip because I always like to do a theme or logo for my trip binder. I knew right away Rapunzel was my girl. Amy or Julie asked me why Rapunzel and my reply was “because she whacks Flynn Rider with a frying pan when she first meets him!” lol

http://images.wikia.com/disney/images/e/eb/TangledRapunzel.jpg


Then Julie sent me this: “Rapunzel is a dreamer at heart and gets along with everyone, she is very clever and daring, but is loyal to those who trust and respect her.” I was surprised how much that sounded like me in real life.

This trip was my 11th WDW vacation. Number 12 is coming up soon in April with my family
(DH John, son Liam and daughter Danica)

It’s sort of surreal how much Amy, Julie and I have in common….one of the things we don’t have in common is writing trip reports….I just can’t keep up so they will be doing most of the reporting here and I’ll chime in when I can.

HI I’m Mouse Scrapper or Scrappie or Julie and my alter ego will be Jasmine for this trip…
http://i1102.photobucket.com/albums/g460/DizMama4/JAH%20weknd%20Oct%2012/aladdin.jpg

Jasmine is a go getter but a pleaser too. She loves fine things but doesn't mind roughing it either. I like that she doesn't get pushed around and loves her "prince" plus Matt and I have a sweet spot for this movie

This was my 12th trip and 2nd time going w/ friends! I couldn’t wait to see Amy & Heidi! We FB, email, and chat over the phone A LOT! I truly hold them in the highest regard and count on them long distance for their advice, support and friendship!

I am happily married to Matt (going on 17 years) and we have 4 children: Nathan, Rebekah (twins almost 14), Rachel (10) and Naomi-Ruth (6).

I work at home as a SAHM and a private caregiver to two young babies, 1 of which is my niece. Besides getting on the DIS when I can, caring for my family and the babies, I enjoy scrapbooking and crafting.

First off, I want to say thanks to everyone who has joined us! Second, the pictures that I post in this TR won't all be mine. They are a combination of pictures that we have uploaded into a shared account. If Julie posts, she'll be in the same boat. Now that they are all mixed together, it's hard to say which pictures came from which camera!

Wednesday, October 10th started early… at least for me & Heidi. I’ll let Julie chime in about her “Day Zero” travels, as she flew down to Orlando the night before due to her flight time being changed a couple times. Heidi & I both live in NH so we flew together out of Manchester. There aren’t any pictures so I’ll skip over this… plus my memory is starting to fail me as I approach 40!

Heidi & I arrived on schedule (9:30-10:30ish??) and started texting Julie to let her know we were there. She stayed at a hotel near the airport & was planning to meet us at the airport to ride the Magical Express bus with us to the Boardwalk. We met up just before the ME area & were soon on a bus (a real ME bus) on our way to our castle for the next four nights.

On the bus, Julie gave us some goody bags that included these amazing headbands that represented each of our chosen princesses:

Trying to get the perfect picture of the gateway to WDW:

http://i1287.photobucket.com/albums/a633/Dispals/Day%201%20EP%20MK%2010-10/DSCN3709_zps4c835865.jpg

When we checked in, they told us our room wasn’t ready.
http://i1287.photobucket.com/albums/a633/Dispals/Day%201%20EP%20MK%2010-10/DSCN3713_zpse58ccf5a.jpg

Of course I knew this was a possibility (and very likely) but I’ve always had good luck staying onsite & having my room ready early so I was a bit surprised. We would get a text when our room was ready & they told us that our two reservations were linked & we didn’t have to move! Yay! I’ll probably forget to tell this story later so I’ll tell you now… Since we had added the extra night, we had two reservations. What we didn’t realize was that the original 3 night reservation was in my name and the added on first night was somehow in Heidi’s name. (We rented points so our DVC host made the reservations for us.) They had said our new room keys would be under our door early the next morning & we wouldn’t have to visit the desk again. Well they were wrong… due to the two different names on the ressie, we did have to go back down & get things straightened out. But it all worked out ok.

Since the room wasn’t ready, we went over to the Bellevue lounge, changed our clothes & reorganized our bags. We left our carry-ons with luggage services and headed out to Epcot!

Sorry your luck went out with the room being ready.

Thanks for the photos of BWI; we are staying for the very first time in December. I'm not a real fan of clowns and the pool, but I figured I won't be swimming, so we might as well give the resort a whirl and love that it is convenient to Epcot and we can meet Nicki and Todd at the entrance as they walk over from the Dolphin.

Cute headbands! Our room wasn't ready either at the BWV in Oct and I'm going to assume it won't be on our next trip. It can be a bit of a drag waiting for it but looks like you guys got up and out of there pretty quickly and that the weather was lovely.

DVC is funny with the name thing, I've heard so many stories of names messed up on reservations that I always triple check mine. Would have been nice if it was really keys under your door but still wonderful that you didn't have to move.

I’ll let Julie chime in about her “Day Zero” travels, as she flew down to Orlando the night before due to her flight time being changed a couple times.

as requested, here's a quick update:

as Amy said I decided not to long before our trip, because I was most :furious: and :sad: that I'd be arriving in on Wed several hours later than the ladies, I changed my flight to fly out Tuesday evening to Orlando and stay at an area hotel for the night. The $ plan was I'd now just take a carryon bag and NOT pay for baggage fees in trade for the new hotel cost....:scratchin hmmm seemed like a good plan....:rolleyes2

I had no major issues flying down accept that our flight was overbooked and several people had to bring their extra carryon bag to the gate to be checked for free :headache:

now I'd have to go to baggage claim after all, which um when was the last time I did that at MCO :confused3

the flight was fine going down, luckily sat next to two quiet ladies. I watched Snow White and the Hunstman on my ipad.

so fast foward to arrival, got in, got the bag, got myself mixed up finding the hotel shuttle pick-up, didnt have to wait long (which I was most thankful for) as the only person on the shuttle back to the Ramada I had my phone in my hand the whole time :rolleyes2

I had this lovely suite for my "me party"

its coming need to get off my phone....

shoot to the next morning and I had my breakfast:

think I have enough creamer? lol

then got to the airport and my luck was w/ me again as the nice shuttle driver dropped me off at arrivals :thumbsup2 instead of at departures as they really should had, I was quite relieved....

Knowing how booked up the resort was for that weekend, I'm really not surprised the room wasn't ready.

The whole name thing was a bit strange! But you'd have thought the CM would have noticed that as a potential issue when we originally checked in. Oh well... that worked out fine too.

as requested, here's a quick update:

as Amy said I decided not to long before our trip, because I was most :furious: and :sad: that I'd be arriving in on Wed several hours later than the ladies, I changed my flight to fly out Tuesday evening to Orlando and stay at an area hotel for the night. The $ plan was I'd now just take a carryon bag and NOT pay for baggage fees in trade for the new hotel cost....:scratchin hmmm seemed like a good plan....:rolleyes2

I had no major issues flying down accept that our flight was overbooked and several people had to bring their extra carryon bag to the gate to be checked for free :headache:

now I'd have to go to baggage claim after all, which um when was the last time I did that at MCO :confused3

the flight was fine going down, luckily sat next to two quiet ladies. I watched Snow White and the Hunstman on my ipad.

so fast foward to arrival, got in, got the bag, got myself mixed up finding the hotel shuttle pick-up, didnt have to wait long (which I was most thankful for) as the only person on the shuttle back to the Ramada I had my phone in my hand the whole time :rolleyes2

I had this lovely suite for my "me party"

its coming need to get off my phone....

shoot to the next morning and I had my breakfast:

think I have enough creamer? lol

then got to the airport and my luck was w/ me again as the nice shuttle driver dropped me off at arrivals :thumbsup2 instead of at departures as they really should had, I was quite relieved....

It was so nice that you were able to get to Orlando to meet us when we got off our plane! :thumbsup2 Glad everything when smoothly!!

While we were in the lounge, we struck up a conversation with a very nice CM. We told her all about our trip & she was very excited for us to be having some fun solo time without our families. On our way out, the awesome CM found us & offered us free tickets to a wine tasting later that afternoon!

I'm so glad you two wanted to do the wine tasting because it's something I would have turned down as I don't drink wine. The wine tasting cemented the fact that I don't like wine....lol.....but it was a fun experience.

I think we could have stayed in that Chase Lounge for hours.....it sort of set the tone of the trip that we were going to do what we felt like at the time....plans be damned.

Free seminar tickets, that is so fun, even if you don't like wine. Neat to be part of the experience.

First the headbands:

I wanted to give the ladies a gift that went w/ our theme for the trip PRINCESSES

I searched for multiple ideas on Esty and we decided on headbands, I looked at several different sellers and need up buying from daniellimb

(Sorry no link for you all, posting from my iPad)

She did a great job and I got 3 (plus shipping) for $25


F&W YUM!!!!! Oh I can't tell you how fun it was to be noshing around the world again, if you never experienced F&W, put it on your Disney Bucket list!

And yes the crazies of Julie were upon us ;-)

Japanese on SSE...Amy was like "no you didn't" LOL

I thought maybe we'd still hear Dame Lady Dench but w/ the Japanese subtitles....um no...so it was actually quite hilarious, especially picking our future

Can't wait to get to MK, what did we do first, I wonder?

I've been absent from the boards for a long while since we didn't do Disney in 2012, but with an August trip booked, I'm back. I went back to my last TR and started looking up some of my "friends" from there to catch up, so glad I found this. :wave2:

You've never been during F&G or F&W! :scared1: I can't believe that!! Spring must be hard with Mark umpiring but it's definitely worth a trip! We're thinking this might be our last F&G in April since Zach will be missing a week of baseball. Now that he's moved up to the more competitive league, it will be hard to do going forward.

We hopped on the monorail & made our way to the TTC. The ferry was there waiting, so we opted for a boat ride.

I remember that the table next to us gave us this because they were on the dining plan and couldn't eat one more CS dessert. So that makes 2 free things for this day, the wine tasting tickets and this.

And I am now addicted to those taco salads thanks to Amy

Oh right! I forgot about that! We were off to a great start!

Taco Salads from Pecos Bills are by far my favorite Disney counter service meal! :thumbsup2

I hear you Amy about the taco salads. I LOVE them!! I tried making some last weekend but did not even come close to Peco's Bills.

That would be great if we were both there in Oct. at the same time!!:goodvibes

Love the Boardwalk... too bad you had to wait for your room but it seems to be a common thing...:confused3

Love your F&W experience so far... and great Disney Magic to get those tickets for the wine seminar from the CM...:thumbsup2 (I am totally desperate to go for F&W... and the Halloween Party...:hyper:)

Those chocolate sculptures are very impressive...:thumbsup2

Even though I'm sure you were worried about your little peeps at home... it must have been liberating to be there by yourselves... no kid's meals...;)

I love the Boardwalk & Food & Wine! And I really love them together! You should definitely get down there during F&W!

Not so much worried about things at home but all of the emails from school & activities come to my email account. Our family account has gotten so bogged down with spam & advertisement that I stopped sending important things there. I had to keep tabs on things so I could forward them along to home.

It was so great walking over to BLT ( my home) to watch the fireworks. I was thrilled to "show off" a bit of my resort world. It was quite cool, that the lounge was open to any DVC member...not sure if it still is, but if you ever have any opportunity to go up there do it!

I think we had meant to go grab some cupcakes or food first from over in CR, but I think I messed that up. But we had a grand time anyways. I was the only one who got a drink...mmmm....not something I'd do if watching the works w/ the kids.

One of my several injuries occurred again this night too...( I had already banged the back of my thigh at my zero night hotel) as I was returning my drink glass into the lounge, I basically opened the heavy door right onto my toe...didn't quite realize how nasty till back to the room. good thing Heidi had all her foot care bandages.

The boardwalk decor and attention to detail was amazing, I loved it and kept snapping pictures :-)

I am always thrilled to see other doors or windows decorated too! I know there is a picture of our door somewhere....and actually the Halloween clings Heidi brought for our windows and mirrors!

Getting caught up after my week off from the DIS last week with illness and work.

I love the Halloween decorations at the MK and I think we will miss them this year since we are going mid-August...I don't think they are up that early.

What a wonderful view from BLT to watch Wishes, etc. And someone was in trouble I gather because she was on the phone again. ;)

LOVE the view from your room of the pool without the clown (I wouldn't mid that view in December). I do love the decor of the rooms and am getting a little bit more excited about staying at BWV in December.

Great shots from BLT! We have watched 4th of July fireworks from up there.

That's right! We did stop & buy cupcakes at the Boardwalk Bakery at some point tonight, I believe. Remember the cupcakes with moldy strawberries on them that we threw away on our last day? :rolleyes:

I forgot about your injuries... that was one nasty black & blue on your thigh!

Oops... I was thiking the decorations were yours but you're right, it was Heidi! You made us one beautiful door though! :thumbsup2

I love your Wishes pictures - great view! Your room is really pretty too, and a pool view without the clown is awesome!

In my opinion, pool view is the least desireable because you pay the same rate/points as boardwalk view but I loved being able to see DHS off the balcony. :thumbsup2

Day 2 – Thursday, 10/11/12
We started our day with a lovely boat ride to DHS. I LOVE riding the friendship boats from the Boardwalk area to DHS!
Again, I’m jumping around between different photo sources so excuse me if I get a little bit out of order.
First, some more pictures of our view:

Based on these pictures, I think Julie & Heidi rode together, Heidi won & had the “best in vehicle” score. Go Heidi!

If I remember correctly, the line for Tower of Terror was backed all the way up to the front gate so we had some pictures taken & did a little shopping.

At some point, we stopped at Starring Rolls and got these goodies:

Then we went over & took an animation class:

Lovely pool view ladies. Fun and productive morning! Those goodies look SOOOO yummy right about now. Cute magic shot with Chip. I wondered what that border was for and now I know. You all made some fine Donald's too :goodvibes

Looks like a spectacular fun-filled day at HS! I especially love all the Photopass pictures. It's always nice to have those group shots. :)

I can't believe how great all of your Donald sketches turned out.:thumbsup2 I am hoping to do the Animation class on my trip this October...I just hope my skills are as good as you 3!

Yeah, the cupcakes do look yummy!

The Epcot resorts area is so pretty and peaceful, with just the right beach 'vibe' on the BC/YC side and just the right amount of hustle and bustle on the Boardwalk side. It's just perfectly set up, I think.

Fun group shots. :thumbsup2

Hope you are faring well in the snow! :cold:

Loving your report, because (Shhhh, don't tell my kids, but) my most fun trips have been girlfriend trips with my "Princess Posse." In our group, I am Snow White, so I am really relating to you!

And I am sooo jealous of those darling princess hair clips! Those are fantastic!:lovestruc

Thanks Cynthia! The pool view without the clown was great! :thumbsup2 I agree about the goodies... I'd love a Disney goodie right now!

I'd never seen that Chip shop before - it was fun!

The animation classes are so fun!

We were off to a good start at HS that day! It was nice to stop for the PP pictures and not hear complains from my kids! ;)

They really make it easy to draw the characters in the animation classes. They go step by step. I bet you'll do great! :thumbsup2

I absolutely love staying at the Epcot resorts! I'm thinking it won't work out for this fall... If I go with my good friend we won't be able to book for a while. The guy I rent DVC points from owns at BWV so we usually have the 11 month advantage... we definitely weren't ready to book at 11 months this time around.

More snow coming tomorrow night!

:welcome: Another Snow White! Friend trips are so much different than family trips. I love them both but it's fun to get away and just worry about myself.

The headbands were a great gift! Julie spent a ton of time trying to find the right things on etsy for us.

Mmmmm... I would love a Disney cupcake right now! I was pretty happy with how our pictures came out. :goodvibes

Sorry if I jump around… I’m trying to consolidate our pictures & the memories of the specifics are a big foggy!
First on the agenda was dinner! We headed toward Pecos Bills through Adventureland.
More PP pictures:

We decided to hop in line for Pooh & Friends around 6:45. The party started at 7pm.

After the show, we hopped in line to meet one of the villains… can you guess who?

Wait, that’s not our Cruella??

I will try and fill in some of the memory gaps and fun, laughable moments :-)

We had a blast getting ready in our room, listening to Halloween music and Heidi even put up more Halloween decorations in our room.

I had found an awesome Cruella tutorial online and it was so awesome to see my transformation...Heidi and Amy helped put my Cruella lashes on too.

As we were heading out of the room, the comedy and Oscar winning performances began! My puppies kept running away and well Darlings, you know how much Cruella loves puppies. Oh those wretched puppies come here!

Amy and Heidi remember the guests we saw in the hotel as we were leaving and how they just fussed over us and at first we thought the one lady was in costume ;-) lol

( let's just say it was a scene from Goodfellas)

Fast forward to dinner, we were enjoying checking out other people and their costumes. One family was dressed up in Star Wars. I know I said something quip. We were having fun!

I loved how guests and CM's alike got into our costumes and would tell the puppies to watch out Cruella was close behind...

I also had a blast joking with other guests and how they were dressed up. I think I one point I saw Harry Potter and called out to him, hey you're in the wrong park lol

When we were lining up to see the "other" Cruella, it was a bit confusing and smashed with guests, and a few guests we think thought I was the actual character and were taking my picture. It was pretty funny.

I know there were plenty of other funny moments.

We were thrilled to get to see the Headless Horseman too, especially after a special meet and greet on the ferry back from the Studios. We met Deb Willis and her partner and we talked quite about. She had asked us to let her know if the Horseman rode that night.

One other great parade moment was this adorable kid sitting near us that we all struck up a conversation with and he told us all about he loved going to Epacot

We of course did several trick or treating trails and got some pretty full bags of candy YUM!

We found our MNSSHP party pins too at the end of the night. I think we each got different ones.


Hoping the girls can fill in a few more of the gaps.

Speaking of the morning after....I had got up in the morning to use the washroom and when I laid back down I put my wig on. I believe I scared the crap out of the girls....

So many things I forgot about that night! It really was a blast getting dressed up. Julie was an amazing Cruella. Her high school drama club personality was in full force! She played the role perfectly. The other guests & CMs really were very into it!

The next morning... yes, Julie must have laid there in bed with her wig on for quite a while before either of us noticed! I was laying right next to her (we shared the bed) but Heidi, over on the pull out couch, was the one who spotted her first. It was pretty funny!

Thanks for reminding me of all those fun moments Julie!

You guys look great and like you were all having a great time... Have to say Julie really, really looks like she' s channelling her inner Cruella... Ummm... it's a teeny bit scary...:eek:

The parade, Hallowishes, all of that so awesome... what a great time for a girl's weekend...:thumbsup2


Especially love your fun at the Haunted Mansion...:hmghost:

I'll add more....
I will try and fill in some of the memory gaps and fun, laughable moments :-)

We had a blast getting ready in our room, listening to Halloween music and Heidi even put up more Halloween decorations in our room.

Make-up took WAY longer to apply then I thought it would. Remember when my lip color was looking really day-glo strange in the bathroom mirror and I kept trying to fix it only to discover that it looked fine in natural light in the bedroom?

I had found an awesome Cruella tutorial online and it was so awesome to see my transformation...Heidi and Amy helped put my Cruella lashes on too.

I'm so glad you wore the wig...it made the costume and teasing and spraying your hair would have taken another hour to do!

As we were heading out of the room, the comedy and Oscar winning performances began! My puppies kept running away and well Darlings, you know how much Cruella loves puppies. Oh those wretched puppies come here!

We would do this all night long....run ahead of Julie/Cruella and she would interact with the crowd

Amy and Heidi remember the guests we saw in the hotel as we were leaving and how they just fussed over us and at first we thought the one lady was in costume ;-) lol

That was so funny. You know when you are about to say something and catch yourself at the last possible second? That was me. I was going to compliment this woman on her Snooki costume for the party when I realized it wasn't a costume :scared:

( let's just say it was a scene from Goodfellas)

Fast forward to dinner, we were enjoying checking out other people and their costumes. One family was dressed up in Star Wars. I know I said something quip. We were having fun!

Remember the whole group of Waldo's?

I loved how guests and CM's alike got into our costumes and would tell the puppies to watch out Cruella was close behind...

I also had a blast joking with other guests and how they were dressed up. I think I one point I saw Harry Potter and called out to him, hey you're in the wrong park lol

When we were lining up to see the "other" Cruella, it was a bit confusing and smashed with guests, and a few guests we think thought I was the actual character and were taking my picture. It was pretty funny.

Tons of people took your picture that night. And we got more time with the Disney Cruella

I know there were plenty of other funny moments.

We were thrilled to get to see the Headless Horseman too, especially after a special meet and greet on the ferry back from the Studios. We met Deb Willis and her partner and we talked quite about. She had asked us to let her know if the Horseman rode that night.

That meeting was funny too because I made you strike up a convo with her partner because she had her arm in this big sling thing.

One other great parade moment was this adorable kid sitting near us that we all struck up a conversation with and he told us all about he loved going to Epacot

He was a good kid

We of course did several trick or treating trails and got some pretty full bags of candy YUM!

And it should be noted that morning after picture was taken in a public hall of the resort, not our room. We got wackier as the weekend went on I think:rotfl:

All your Boardwalk pictures make me want to stay there again ASAP! It's so beautiful, and that boat ride to DHS is the best.

OH my goodness, this had me :rotfl2:

You guys did great getting some character pictures, we were terrible at that. I love all the ones with Julie and the "other" Cruella's but the official one is the best, she has a scary face! Julie beats the rest, hands down. I can definitely see where some guests would think Julie was the real one.

Fabulous ghost lady pics, she was a highlight of the evening for sure!

What a fun party update!

Day 3: Friday 10/12/12 – Today we had a lot of different things planned. We were going to sleep in a little bit after our late night at MNSSHP. We planned to eat a nice relaxing breakfast at Captain’s Grille, then head to Epcot for a little while. We had tickets to the 3D Dessert Party later that night and planned to take a break at BWV in the afternoon.

We took our time heading over to the Yacht Club for breakfast and took some photos along the way.

After breakfast, unfortunately, we didn’t take very many pictures until the evening. I believe we headed over to Epcot for a little shopping, then came back to the room. Here is our only photopass picture for the day.

After shopping we must have spent some time in the villa relaxing before heading back out to Epcot for the night. Our Epcot goals for today were to grab some fastpasses for Soarin’:

Then to eat at the Food & Wine booths between Canada & Italy before our break back at the villa.
I know I indulged in a double serving of filet at the Canada F&W booth, beyond that, I’m not sure what we ate.

We checked in around 7:30-7:45. After checking in we found ourselves a spot to sit near the big curtain they had across the room. We had heard that seats could be hard to come by so we should get to a table as quickly as possible. One of the CMs whispered to us that when they open the curtain in the middle, we should sneak around the side at the end. ;) Which is exactly what we did!

I had no idea what to expect… Basically it was a HUGE room with a band in the center on one side. There were different food stations set up all over the room. Most of the stations were desserts with a drink station at the end. There was one savory station as well. It was pretty loud in there. The band was playing all “sweet” songs like “I like Candy!” I was starting to come down with a cold so I didn’t feel great that night. With the loud music I really felt like I was in a fog. Here are some pictures from the night.

This was the station right near our table. There was a long line all night – I think it was the savory table.

One of my plates of food:
http://i1287.photobucket.com/albums/a633/Dispals/154_zps5b806877.jpg

We weren’t sure if we were just supposed to leave for Illuminations or if they would announce something but we noticed people starting to leave around 9:30 so we headed back out toward the door. They were giving out cute gift bags and our special glasses for the event. They had CMs with lights stationed along the route from the party to the private Illuminations area. We followed along & made it to the area right at the bottom of the World Showcase (centered between Mexico & Canada).
Ready for Illuminations with our cool 3D glasses:

It was a great spot to view Illuminations from & the glasses made it really fun!

I was still in a bit of a fog so I’m not sure if Julie had sustained another injury or if she was just being goofy!

Your pictures of your BWV room is making me very excited to stay there in December. :goodvibes

I always forget about Captain's Grille; we are going to have to do that one of these times (maybe in December).

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your costumes for the MNSSHP. They are absolutely terrific and you all look absolutely great. The photopass pictures all turned out great.

I really like that ONE and only photopass picture from Epcot with your hands full of bags from shopping.

Day Four: Four parks - One day!

The original plan for today had been to head to DHS, possibly AK, do some shopping at MouseGear, lunch at Via Napoli, relax at the resort, then enjoy a “night out” at Jelly Rolls and possibly some dessert at Flying Fish. When we heard that MK was offering “dress rehearsals” to the general public, we decided we couldn’t wait until Sunday to get back there! The obvious plan… hit all four parks!

The day started with EMH at DHS. The night before, I wasn’t exactly sure I’d be making it to park one for EMH. We hadn’t been out that late (Illuminations was at 10pm that night) but I thought for sure I’d wake up feeling awful from the cold that was coming on. I’d run out of cold medicine, but luckily Heidi had her “Italy pills” to share with me. You’ll have to remind me what kind those were, Heidi! They were “Italy pills” because they were the colors of the Italian flag!

I’ll let the photos speak for what we did that morning:

I think these pictures need an explanation... After riding RnRC, Julie dragged us over to the kids activity area and we decorated cardboard albums. Heidi, apparently inspired by our visit to Star Tours, decided they would make lovely hair pieces.

We are in the 4 Parks/1 Day Club, too! :cool1:

Your treats look good at the dessert party. We are big fruit people, so it's nice to know there was plenty of that available to go with the gooey stuff. Although I will say, the watermelon didn't look very red. How was it? That is my all-time favorite fruit, so I always eat my fill of it at the buffets. (Insert picture of pig here. ;))

Soon and very soon, I will be taking the walk around that beautiful Beach Club, Yacht Club, Boardwalk loop again! :cool1:

You girls look like you are having a blast! It's great to get away with friends occasionally. Family trips are still by far #1 in my book, but friend trips are fun in a different way.

Julie was a fantastic Cruelle! The party was a lot of fun.

Shopping was a lot of fun too! Except for Heidi... It's all coming back to me now, she missed that picture because she was dealing with Customer Relations after a bad check out experience at Mouse Gear. :scared:

Italy pills! I was careful not to take any sleeping pills. ;)

That's what the links are there for! Glad they helped!

I agree that Julie missed her calling. I wish I had video to post of her - she really took the role of Cruella very seriously!

More of the 4 parks adventure coming up sometime today.

We are in the 4 Parks/1 Day Club, too! :cool1:

Attempting four parks was fun... but it made us miss your DIS meet that day. :( I'm sure there will be other chances in the future.

There was definitely a lot of fruit at the party. Mr. Food was there with some watermelon dessert (pops of some kind). He passed away shortly after that event. (Just looked it up & he passed away in November).

How was the fruit? I don't really recall anything overly negative or postive so it must have been at least decent.

I agree that family trips are the best, but I love squeezing in those friend trips as well! They provide a much needed break!

Having tackled two of the four parks, we took a short break at the villa to get changed into the special outfits we’d planned for our Jelly Rolls night out. Jelly Rolls out, we still wanted to dress up in our princess inspired outfits. I think I was feeling better in the afternoon because I have a lot more pictures.

Then we were headed to the safari (or maybe we went to the safari before Up??). Actually I know we went to the safari before up... Notice Julie's shoes in the picture above & the picture below. She had lovely Jasmine shoes on when we entered the park & she ended up buying the sandals she is wearing above in one of the AK shops.

Do you remember that we were next in line for Russel and Dug and it was time for them to break but a Make a Wish child came over in braces and a wheelchair and Russel and Dug held the child so he could stand and hug them? I might have gotten a bit misty eyed <cough cough>

I might have said differently at the time, but I don't remember four parks being too difficult. It's amazing how much easier things are without the family along.

I loved meeting the Up characters, that was too fun. Amy looked great and got a lot of attention the second half of the day....the BEST part of our 4 park day is coming up :-)

I had bought a pair of red patent leather(ish) flats at Old Navy that I'd planned to wear for our night out but opted for my comfortable flip flops since we skipped the Boardwalk area & hit the parks. As much as they felt like slippers, I knew I shouldn't wear them since they were new.

The Up characters were a lot of fun!

My Comments in RED

It didn't quote your comments, but yes, we had a blast with our own version of the BBB! :thumbsup2

There was a very sweet moment with the little MAW boy with visited with Dug & friends in front of us. The CM seemed very apologetic that he was "cutting" in front of us but I think all three of us were tearing up watching that sweet moment!

You all looked lovely dressed up for your night out. :goodvibes

There were some fun interactive elements that you can't really see in these pictures.

If you look closely at the picture above, you can see water on Heidi's shirt. Under the Sea is in the area that they spray down before and during Wishes. There were sprinklers going off that would get us from time to time while we were in the outside portion of the queue.

Finally we were in the inside portion of the queue at Under the Sea:

I didn't take any pictures inside the ride. I think we all just wanted to enjoy it! I believe we took pictues when we went back the next day.

We visited Gaston’s next:

I’m not sure we did much else at MK that night… those are all of the pictures I have. Plus our Photopass proof of our fourth park:

Do you remember when we got to the New FL and we were all excited and goose bumped and Julie said something about it to the CM and she was like "whatever lady"? Most un-magical CM working there that night.

Under the Sea took Forever and day in the que because it was breaking down and stop quite a lot that weekend but it gave us time to really check out all the neat stuff in the que. Plus fireworks from there are really cool.

The LeFrou's brew tasted so good that night.

Yay! You made it! Four parks in one day! :cool1: I have a hard enough time doing two parks in one day! :crazy2:

What did you think of Under the Sea? I imagine it's similar to Finding Nemo? No one but me wanted to do it so I ended up skipping it. I'll probably try to do it in January when I go alone.

Wow - 4 parks in one day. I am impressed. I've never done that!

The Little Mermaid ride looks so pretty at night. I love the color of the fountains. Now I know I MUST visit at night! You got so many great shots of the queue.

So jealous you guys got to see BOG. It was closed when we were there. It really looks cool and I can't wait to eat there in June!

Wow - what a fun day you all had. Great update!

So after all that "I'm not getting behind", that's just what I did.

LOVE your outfits....you all look great.

And :thumbsup2 for getting all four parks I.

Isn't the new FL awesome? I want to ride the mermaid ride WITHOUT taking pictures my first time this year so I can really enjoy it (I think I missed a lot by taking pictures).

All the photopass pics are great, as always.

I'm so glad for you that you got to see NFL in previews... it feels extra special... cause you aren't quite sure you're going to get to but you're really hoping and when you get to... it feels extra special...:cool1:

That CM was a bit odd! She definitely wasn't as excited to be there as we were!

The queue did take forever! Luckily it was all new to us so we could enjoy it! The fireworks were a highlight of the trip!!

Four parks in one day was fun. I'd never consider doing it with the family that's for sure!

Under the Sea was pretty cool! I don't think it's a headliner and the lines should settle down once the newness wears off, but it's a nice addition to Fantasyland. It's similar to Nemo but there's no aquarium, mostly animatronics.

I'm really glad we did all four parks. I wasn't sure by the way I felt the night before but it all worked out. Visiting at night was so pretty. A completely different experience than visiting during the day. I can't wait to eat at BoG in a couple weeks!!

We took a ton of pictures... I'm working on our last day now & there are a ton more pictures!

Love all your pics! :)

Thank you!!! :goodvibes

Fun night. So cool that you got to see Fantasyland before it was officially opened. :worship: <----- random smiley from Joey

We were totally psyched to get a sneak peek at the new attractions!!

Hi Joey! :wave2:

I completely understand Kathy! I'm behind everywhere - just can't seem to keep up. And with a 12 day trip right around the corner, I'll be behind again!

New FL really was a fun experience. Really pretty at night! I agree about soaking things in sometimes. I need to put the camera away more often!

Love that you where channeling your inner princess es ... you all look great...

You were rocking Expedition Everest ...:thumbsup2

It was fun to be girly! I don't get to do that very often with all of my boys!

We all love our thrills rides & are looking forward to meeting up in April do ride some together!

We had heard that they were giving previews of new FL that weekend & just couldn't wait until Sunday to get back there! I'm so glad we went Sat night. That was part of the motivation to try all four parks that day!

Photobucket has finally cooperated!! So here we go with our last day, Sunday, October 14, 2012.

We took care of our luggage, checked out & headed off to enjoy a beautiful Magic Kingdom morning! (Again I’m mixing my pictures & Julie’s pictures and they aren’t in order in PB so they could bounce around a little.)

I meant to post this earlier when Amy mentioned how excited we were when we found the new FL area opened....you may have recalled seeing pictures of the "tree wall" they put in front of the main entrance earlier, we had peeked through it earlier that week...well I'm standing there trying to see if I can tell if people are back there and Amy and Heidi are yelling at me...cause they were walking in...I had no clue, it was kind of funny.

I also just had to call home ( one of my few times) to tell them I was standing I. The new LM ride queue while the fireworks were going off over us...

On to the last day....

The PP picture above of me with my finger in my mouth I was copying Donald you was just tasting "boogers" out of his snakes nose...I know gross LOL

When I left off, we had visited with the gang under the big top & taken a ride on Dumbo. We explored the area a little more.

I guess they didn’t want kids climbing on & fall off of Casey Jr…

Julie got to have photopass pictures with Belle. At the time, you could only get your picture taken with Belle at the end of the show if you were in the show. I’m not sure if that has changed or not, but something to keep in mind if you want pictures.

The ride wasn't working as well this time around... it kept stopping. We must have stopped 3 or 4 times. The last time we stopped was at the unloading area... we were the very next car to be let off & they wouldn't let us off. It was fairly interesting because we were right next to the control desk/podium thing & we saw all kinds of CMs coming over to check things out. They finally let us out but I'm not sure the ride started back up anytime soon after that.

I guess Julie was causing trouble…

We made our way to Splash Mountain next. Knowing that Julie & I didn’t like to get our hair wet, she brought us shower caps… or so I thought… until we tried to put them on. They were so small! Turns out they were food covers! :rotfl2:

Part way through the ride, we stopped! We weren't having the best luck today! They even turned on the lights!

Then we did a little shopping at the Emporium & split up a bit. All of a sudden Julie is going crazy trying to round us up. Heidi was in the middle of something so she told us to go on without her… where to?? Julie found our favorite photopass photographer!!!!!!!! We met “Visitation” on our January 2011 Spectrum Moms trip & he took some amazing pictures of our group. Julie was lucky enough to run into him on a family trip sometime after that.

Unfortunately he was with a group. I think the family was going to be the grand marshalls of the parade & Visitation was going to be along with them to capture the moments. We asked if he could take some pictures but the group handler told us he couldn’t. But Visitation had other plans. He took a minute from the group & did a few quick pictures for us!!!!

Then it was time to head back to the Boardwalk to wait for our Magical Depress bus! We got ourselves organized at the Boardwalk & Julie got a message that her flight was delayed. We headed to the airport & Julie found out her flight was even further delayed. I forget what time she finally left, but she got home REALLY late! Fortunately for me & Heidi, we had an uneventful flight home.

And that’s it! Girls trips are so good for the soul! I'm trying my hardest to get back this fall with one of my oldest friends, Nicole. It looks promising, but we don't have specific plans yet. In the meantime... I leave for my next family trip in just 4 days!!! And I get to see Heidi (& family) and Julie (& DH)!!! I'm really excited to meet up with my girls!!

Good one! I will have to look for it next time.





We made our way to Splash Mountain next. Knowing that Julie & I didn’t like to get our hair wet, she brought us shower caps… or so I thought… until we tried to put them on. They were so small! Turns out they were food covers! :rotfl2:

Part way through the ride, we stopped! We weren't having the best luck today! They even turned on the lights!

Food covers? Too funny! :laughing:

Splash Mountain does seem to have its share of troubles. It is interesting to see it in the light, though. We had to walk off right at the end last summer. kinda cool to do once.




And that’s it! Girls trips are so good for the soul! I'm trying my hardest to get back this fall with one of my oldest friends, Nicole. It looks promising, but we don't have specific plans yet. In the meantime... I leave for my next family trip in just 4 days!!! And I get to see Heidi (& family) and Julie (& DH)!!! I'm really excited to meet up with my girls!!

A trip with a gang of silly girls would be fun, as long as one of them was my own girl. I missed her a lot on the March trip.

Happy travels! I think you and Jill may just miss each other. She comes home Wednesday.

Wow I missed two updates (well 3 including today's)? You are updating machines!!! Guess some ladies want this one wrapped up before their next trip which is almost here?????????

Just a guess.

Ok...

4th park....impressive work ladies and some very very fun pictures. How magical that wishes was going off while you were in the line. I was impressed with all the queue pictures from Voyage and Dumbo. We went through both of those lines so fast I missed all that detail.

So many great pictures but I especially love this one.

How did I miss that Goofy's face frames the opening like that :confused3

Fun stuff all around

Love the pics on Splash with the "food covers".:)

That is great that you got to meet up with Visitation. I remember reading about that in one of your previous TR's. He took some great pictures!:thumbsup2

Hope you have a great trip!!

You don't remember this because we had split up and I just stumbled upon Gaston. I *think* Amy and Julie were going to do another ride - maybe BTMRR and I didn't want to go. Or more like I didn't want to walk any more than I had too. See I got a little surprise that morning after our 4 parks in one day...... we could have named the trip report .......










4 Parks
3 Friends
2 SWOLLEN FEET
1 Day

It took days after the trip for my feet to return to their normal size. :crazy2:
Next week we leave for 15 days at Disney and let me tell you there will be no 4 parks in one day!

We should have known Julie's flight would be delayed because things always happen in 3's. We got delayed on Under the Sea and then again on Splash Mountain.

Great pictures Heidi!!:thumbsup2

Too bad about your swollen feet. No fun. One trip in Oct. 2011 my ankles were swollen (Had been in the hospital 3 weeks prior) so I would go to the pool in the afternoon & put my legs up on about 10 towels to try & reduce the swelling.:sad2: I cannot imagine trying to do 4 parks in one day that way!!

Wait you have overlapping trips...:goodvibes? & they're coming up in a couple of days? :thumbsup2 Looks like Amy is going first in three days? :yay:

Is the photographer's real name Visitation? He took some really cute photos...

I love the shower caps but I cannot believe you got stuck on Splash...:eek: Seriously... that photo looks like you were on the conveyor belt towards the bottom...just waiting to go up towards the drop... that would have made me a little bit edgy...:scared:

Julie did a great job at being the salt in Belle's story...;)

I hate when trips end...:sad2: except in this case you were headed back to your families so that had to make it a little bit better...:goodvibes

Yes, we have overlapping trips!!! Heidi & I have been at Disney during the same week a few times over the past few years. We are both from NH so we have the same school vacations. Julie was planning a getaway with her DH so she intentionally lined it up with our trips. :thumbsup2 Last year Heidi & I actually stayed at the same resort & got to hang out at the pool a couple times. And yes, I leave in 2 days!! Heidi doesn't leave until the weekend... we overlap for one week (official school vacation week next week) then she is staying for a 2nd week. Julie will be there over the weekend of 4/25-4/28 (the end of our trip, the middle of Heidi's).

Yes, Visitation is really his name! He's an awesome photographer!!

The picture of you two with your "shower caps" on is hilarious! :rotfl2:

Thanks for sharing such a special trip with us! pixiedust:

What fun, I LOVE the new circus area. So Fun, Joey was sitting on my lap getting so excited about the characters in their outfits.

The hair covers/food covers at Splash are too funny. Looks like you girls had a GREAT trip.:)

Then Julie found our favorite photopass photographer!!!!!!!! We met “Visitation” on our January 2011 Spectrum Moms trip & he took some amazing pictures of our group. Julie was lucky enough to run into him on a family trip sometime after that.

Unfortunately he was with a group. I think the family was going to be the grand marshalls of the parade & Visitation was going to be along with them to capture the moments. We asked if he could take some pictures but the group handler told us he couldn’t. But Visitation had other plans. He took a minute from the group & did a few quick pictures for us!!!!

You should be "overlapping" right about now --- can't wait to read all about that!

Amy, I went back and read everything. I'm so sorry I missed the end of this. With the business trip to Florida, coming home to one crisis after another at the office, the kids being in for a weekend and the finishing touches on the wedding plans, I've had no DIS time.

I thoroughly enjoyed the report and hope that you are having a blast at Disney right now as I type this.

Amy - I can't believe I didn't realize I missed two mega updates while I was away in HHI.

Great updates. I don't even know where to start with the comments.

That Monsters, Inc apple is too cute.

You guys got so many wonderful candid shots in Fantasyland and with the characters. I love them all.

Can't believe the lights came up on Splash. I bet you thought you were going to be evacuated. OMG. I know a DISer that that happened to recently.

Love the picture of the castle between the two umbrellas. I light to take that shot, too!

Welcome Back! I hope you had a wonderful spring break trip!
