Bob Jackson had me shippin bricks!!!!!

WEll Everyone i'm back from my 6 nights in WDW and I will introduce the cast of this TR as they come into play.It begins actually 2 days before I leave with a note I wrote in my trip journal( I brought 2 books with me #1 my disney planning book and #2 my trip journal)




On the inside cover I wrote the park hours just incase



Here is the note......so in exactly 2 days I will set foot in the most magical place on earth,In the meantime... while some of my friends are are in The Magic Kingdom at this very moment....I'm doin my stinkin laundry.UGH!!!Need to pack those last minute necessities,do my dishes,vacum and all that jazz(stuff I won't wanna do when I get home)
This will be my 10th trip to the world and I'm hoping it's a good one.This morning I called All Star Movies to talk to my friend and the Cm's name was "Pollyanna"so I had a mini freak out to her about how much I love that movie!!!"let's play the glad game"
here is the section of the resort my friend stayed in...


the mighty ducks building

After that I watched some youtube vids of Disney songs,then it hit me I needed to plan when I would go to wilderness lodge



and get zebra domes



( yeah that never happened)

So i called wilderness lodge to find out when and where I could get the zebra domes and this time the CM who answered my call was named "carrieAnne" HEY that's ME!!!!! so cool! Now my laundry is in the dryer and I have this on"The grand opening of walt Disney World Oct.29th 1971" love me some she Julie Andrews!She really is practically perfect in every way So I just wanted to share that with you guys.Have a magical Day!!


Sunday september 23rd.......
So this morning i got up at 5:30 to be ready to print out our boarding passes.I took our dog Gypsy out and then went back to sleep for a bit.At 8:30 i woke up again,got showered and got the princesses up and ready.Hubby drove us to the airport in Buffalo(it's much cheaper and faster for us to cross the border and fly out of Buffalo than it is to drive and fly out of Toronto)We met my mom and step dad at The Olive Garden for lunch.Chip&Dale joined us...




Our waitress wasn't very bright but our food was good and with full bellies we headed over to WAlden Galleria mall for some last minute shopping.We stayed at The Days hotel across from the airport.Daddy joined us for a swim there while Grandpa went on a coffee run,who knows where my mom was at this point.I was loving the hot tub.When the men left we went to dinner @ The landingwhere I ate way too much icky fried food.[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="3"][COLOR="Magenta"]When it was time for bed Duffy got tucked in with my mom and and Chip and Dale snuggled in with Riley,Hailey and I

Chip nestled in really close to me(he slid down the pillow)and Riley said he must really love me (cute!)shortly after I felt really strange like you know that feeling you get when you can feel someone glaring at you?Well I opened my eyes to find Dale about 3 inches from my face (creepy!!)I thought about taking a pic but everyone appeared to be sleeping SO NOT THE CASE! riley figured he musta felt left out.It didn't take long before Hailey let Grandma in on just how difficult it can be to get her settled at night.She is a sweetheart but has a very difficult time "shutting her brain off" so we went from her talking about the time on the clock,to why she has 2 hands,to singing "there's a great big beautiful tomorrow shining at the end of every day" to how people get from earth to space and back again,to talking about how she had a really mean supply teacher the other day and then onto her singing again "man has a dream and thats a fact"oh my god she was something else,I'll spare you the rest because we'd be here forever.Basically we finally realised that there was no possible way we'd be getting sleep so we entertained her ideas of having a movie slumber party and Bedtime Stories was on tv.While I write this and watch her bop around the room.the alarm has been set for 3 am since we board the airport shuttle at 4 on next to no sleep.Wish me luck "there's a great big beautiful tomorrow just a dream away"


(lucky mom she's tko'd,zonked,crashed out)Sure wish i was!!

First on board...yahoo!!!

OMGoodness~cannot believe you all stayed up watching movies and singing the night before flying out to WDW! What a riot!!! I so don't know how your mom slept through all that...must have had some drugs or drinking before she tucked in for the night.

When I wrote the last part i was going to bed or so I thought.I was too excited to sleep and woke up literally every hour on the hour. here are some 3 am pics



We ate breakfast at the hotel and Chip&Dale joined us and they tried to sneak a few bites of my danish.




There was a shuttle to take us to the airport and our flight was uneventful which to me is a good thing.

so the plan was to get a boat over downtown Disney and so thats what we did and while we waited we of course entertained ourselves with the camera(my kids love taking their own pics with it,so as long as they wear the wrist strap I let them at it)




Say hello to my little friend.....



oh look there it is "I'm gonna touch the butt"





then we got closer to DTD....



and closer GASP!!!!!! Where was the Characters in Flight???? i wanted to do this so bad with ry



(no worries it would make it's return later and i've got pics of it's replacement,its just sad that when it came back Riley wasn't with me so we never got to do it)

and we made it to Marketplace

Hey Cheeky! I am stilll here, I just normally take the weekends off from the Dis! BTW~ you missed a comment from me that I posted right after your Pirates and Pals Cruise post...go check it out!

We love Yak and Yeti!!! Their food is so fresh and delicious...and don't even get me started on those fried wontons....out of this world GOOD!!!!!

Your girls had so many costumes and changes of clothes, I cannot even imagine how many bags you brought with you. But, they do look so cute in each one of them, and I bet they felt extra special!

okay so I hate it when ppl at Disney have bad manners,everyone there has paid alot to be there and regardless of what you spent or how much you think you are entitled to something no one there is more important than the next person,part of the reason this really gets me is because I have read too many times where people complain about the lack of parenting in WDW.It gets on my nerves because I do my best to stay on top of mine and make sure that they behave and respect others,I'm not a stroller ramming kind,I don't let my kids climb all over things and I expect them to wait their turn for things,yet there are some knitwits out there that insist on making the rest of us parents look bad so imagine how mortified I was when we saw this Mickey pumpkin.....my mom wanted our pic with it so she tells my kids to run up n go sit for a pic,while I clearly saw a line waiting,so i told her and made sure others heard me because I want it known that i am not "one of those bad parents"who doesn't care and lets their kids do whatever,then I told my girls that I know grandma told them to run over there but i noticed a line of people who were there first and we should line up and wait our turn,so they did and my Riley even appologised to those people(such a good girl) anyway here is the said pumpkin.......



and when it was our turn the family ahead of us was thankful that i had made my kids come into their place and they offered to take our pic -thank you other family



no one was behind us then so i got a shot of the girls with it too



after a million more random shots that I won't bore you with we got on the boat heading back to PORS,and the driver made me giggle when he saids we had boarded the sunset cruise and he'd be around to collect 5 dollars,I heard a man ask his wife why she didn't tell him that because all he had was plastic LOL






i tried to get a pic of the French quarter pool but it didn't turn out right if it would've it would be a beauty but sadly i got this instead
