MNSSHP continued...

DS9 had started saying he was really tired (who could blame him- we had done alot today, and he was up at 5!) so DH offered to take him back to AKV, while DS11 and I stayed at the party. But first, the three of them went to see about riding SM one more time. I have to say, this was the time of night that started to feel crazy busy- between the parade and the fireworks. The rides seemed to be crowded, and the ToT lines were just silly. We saw THIS and I went out of my mind with excitement, but this was not the year we would be having our photo with this group. So here's someone else who was willing to wait in the line-



I also stopped by the dance party to see this-



The wait for SM was too long right then, so DH found me on Main St, and DS11 and I parked it, and waited to be dazzled by Hallowishes on Main ST. It was off to bed for DS9, and a glass of wine back at the room for DH.



I'll be back in a few with the end of our night-

Hallowishes was spectacular. The music was fantastic, too!



Sorry about the pic quality- I was not doing well figuring out the new camera, and of course there was no tripod!

DS11 wanted to try SM again, and lo and behold, the wait time was back to 5 minutes right after the fireworks! My tummy was a little flip-floppy (I was starting to get really tired, too) so I waited for him at the exit. We did a little more ToTing, and then he wanted TS- somehow, that ride never fails to please!! We never made it to HM, I don't know how I let THAT happen, just a little too tired there at the end. We got out of the park at 10:30, weighed down by a TON of candy. I guess the CMs are very anxious to hand it out after the fireworks on Halloween night!!









The bus ride took all of 12 minutes I think- a real plus is that although AKV is far, it is the only stop. So glad to see its beauty when we arrived "home".



It is no exaggeration to say that we hit the bed like a ton of bricks and slept like a pile of rocks!

Tomorrow morning....wake up sleepy heads...we're goin on the Disney Cruise!!!

WOW- a B2B!!! I was telling my kids that there are people who are fortunate enough to do this, and they think you must be the luckiest people in the world (so do I!). Which 2 did you do? Have a wonderful vacation!!

Looks like you all had a blast!! Isn't AKV so nice to come 'home' to? When we stayed there, however, we were way at the end of a really long hallway, furthest from the buses! It seemed to take forever to finally get back to our room!!

Great pics, hon. You all look really happy

Hey Ellen! Great start - looking foward to following along. I've almost convince my DH to try HHIR, so maybe this will help me convince him to try DCL!

I so wish I could've met up with y'all last weekend! I was one weekend behind you!

As for the head tilt, that is hysterical! But y'all looked great in your sports costumes!

I had asked a CM about seeing all the dwarfs; he said they are usually only out all together during the MNSSHP. Although, I definitley remember seeing them late one night during a MVMCP. Go figure!
