bless ur girls!!! mina looks like she enjoyed herself, and i do like hearing about patient children who are rewarded - bugs me so much about pushy children lol i found that if ur patient, the characters DO notice - goofy pushed ppl away when he saw ds1 had been waiting patiently, and jessie was the same too....

loving ur report - more more!!!

Oct 14th - Day 3

Got up early again and went straight to breakfast. Because we were so knackered we thought we'd take the bus this time so walked out the front to find Mickey dressed up with almost nobody about. This time we were going to brave taking Skye round to see him, Steve stood at the exit ready to come and claim a screaming child. However Skye surprised us totally by yelling "Mickey!" and run forward arms outstretched, even beating Mina to him!



I was so happy and shocked that a tear almost came into my eye, sad huh?! After much hugging and photo taking we caught a mostly empty bus and got to the gates around 8am.

The park was so quiet and we ended up doing about 6 rides in under an hour. Me and Skye sat on "funny cups" for three rides in a row because noone else was about. We also had a look around some shops and found Cinderella's Coach.



We left the park to head for the studios, meeting Minnie was top of the list along with Stitch Live and a tentative thought about doing Tower of Terror. Minnie came out for a meet and greet around 10.15am. Skye had exactly the same reeaction and gave Minnie a huge cuddle. To be honest I'm pretty sure she thinks Minnie and Mickey are the same mouse, yet to understand the boy/girl thing.



After the Minnie meet we found Stitch Live and only had to wait 15mins for the English showing. It's fantastic fun isn't it?! It has to be a must-do if you haven't watched it before. Skye was in awe and we were in fits of laughter. It was all very clever and I'm not sure if we were relieved or sad that we weren't picked on! But I'll say no more about it.

From there we met some characters while Steve rode Rock n Rollercoaster. I would have tried it but am saving it for our Nov trip. We met Donald and Daisy Duck plus Dale in a fetching suit. We also queued for Sulley, he's gorgeous, he's massive, very cuddly. Unfortunately Skye was petrified of him and a nice couple behind were ready to take Mina's photo if I had to back off. In the end it was okay and Skye even went as far as touching his arm, he knew she was nervous so he stayed low down and didn't go "rar" at us like with some others.



Skye had a tantrum after that and Steve returned so he got her off to sleep and me and Mina went to brave TOT. The queue was about 30mins and Mina was very worried about it. At one point inside she looked up at me and said "mummy, I'm nearly crying with the fear". She can be a bit dramatic. I promise I didn't drag her on! Even I felt butterflies too. I'd gone on a similar fairground ride and hated it. Her face was like this for the last 15mins of queue.



Our cast member on it was really funny, he helped make the ride. We finished bouncing about and Mina looked at me and said she LOVED it and could we go again lol I liked it too, I was next to the wall of the lift and had a handle which I was grateful for! I'd def do it again.

We ate lunch at Annettes Diner. We had nachos (burnt, should have complained really as they weren't very nice) and burgers. The burgers are scrummy. No photos, we were so hungry I forgot - sorry!

Went back to the park and did some rides and watched the parade.













Skye was entranced by Ariel, I think I've passed on my love of mermaids to her because she liked the mermaids on Peter Pan ride and IASW.



We left early and stopped in the Disney Store in the Village and got a fridge magnet and some chocolate. We walked back to Cheyenne and I took a couple of photos at dusk.





In my opinion it really is the best hotel theme. We were in bed around 7:30pm - the early starts were taking their toll!

We were there the same time as you, in the same hotel. We were in Jesse James. The weather was great for most of the 5 days.

Where did you find Cinderella's coach?

They def seem to add to the magic I think.. when they're behaving! lol

We saw the characters twice from 7:30am-ish. One morning they started coming out at 8am so we were at park gates then. There was usually a sign put out with meet and greet times on early in the day.

We actually missed the hotel characters last year until the very last morning because of taking the river walk each time. I assume every hotel has characters at breakfast??

I roamed Jesse James mistakenly thinking it was Soaring Eagle The coach is round by the Auberge de Cendrillon restaurant and easily missed if it's busy. You can't do anything with it but the girls thought it was pretty!

wow, what an amazing trip you had and your photos are just lovely

We arrived at the Cheyenne on Wednesday and I do agree, the theme of the place really is lovely.

I'm impressed with all your early starts and how much you managed to fit in !

Looking forward to hearing some more x
