Thanks for joining in and de-lurking. That's what I am thinking with the peak on the nose.

They were awesome, something very satisfying about a Disney burger.

I'm going to go with Rhino or Pig on the towel animal

The burger doesn't look as good as the filet but still looks wonderful compared to my "real world" food I've got in front of me
Oh I know, I would love a disney burger for lunch today!

Yep, you do. No sense in making yourself more miserable.

Settling into jammies and watching TV, getting those feet up for some well-deserved rest, Magic Kingdom ahead....good stuff!
I think the Pop burger was slightly better than ASMu which is probably ridiculous since they are pretty much the same.

Those cheeseburgers do look super delicious. All of the food pictures I am seeing on TRs today is really making my stomach growl!
We did get a lot done in Epcot! It's hard in the moment though to sacrifice park time for rest time.

I love twittering, I had a lot of fun with it! What section of ASMu, did you stay at?

Yes, flexibility is key. I don't know what made us think we could keep going and going like that.

Okay, off to finish.
Hehehe....def not jewel box.

Your pictures at LeCellier has me drooling! OMGosh, I just love the food there. I also feel weird taking pix of the food, but a Diser has to do what a Diser has to do.

I think the towel animal is a rhino if that makes any difference.
That's just it too, you are in a bad mood and then you get more mad at yourself and it's hard to get out of it!

Those cheeseburgers seriously look amazing. I'm going for sushi tonight, but I wonder if they serve burgers too...
It was a really enjoyable night!
How was the sushi?

Sorry you were cranky. Hope the nap, ABC Family movie and greasy junk food rejuvinated you. It always works wonders for me!

So you didn't eat at Sanaa. I was hoping to hear rave reviews.

Can't wait to hear what is next.
Greasy junk food is always good when you are grumpy, comfort food at it's best!

Oh, I can't stand to know how a book ends. When I bought the last Harry Potter book...which I stood in line for at midnight, I wouldn't even let Marc listen to the radio on the way home in fear that someone would ruin it for me. I didn't watch tv, go on the computer or listen to the radio until I finished it. I don't like the endings ruined!

How did the sock shopping go?
It was nice and I am glad we did it. I never got to the Sox Market. I didn't have time yesterday, I do have some decent socks to start out with...I am just going to use those until I get back up there.

Tinkerbell Snot.

Sunday May 24th. Day 3.

We set the alarm and had a more leisurely morning of getting ready. We made sure to drink some soda so we didn't suffer caffeine withdrawals like we did the day before. I also snacked on a granola bar for breakfast. I spent quite a bit of time bandaging my feet and getting them wrapped up in order to provide some comfort from my blisters. I also decided to wear socks with my Crocs in order to give my feet more protection. I was feeling better, more hopeful that today was going to be better. How could it not be? We were headed to MAGIC KINGDOM!

We made it to the Ticket and Transportation Center and there was a HUGE line for the monorail. If you read my last TR, you remember how much I loved riding the boat from WL to MK, so I persuaded Jen to take the riverboat over to the MK. This is something I had never done and I really loved it! You will be sad though because while I was enjoying it, I didn't even take my camera out to take a single picture. I did that a lot this trip, just enjoyed my time and the surroundings without the camera up to my face. Sorry loyal readers....

We arrived at the MK gates just in time to catch the last half of the opening show...again, I didn't take out my camera. We were let into the Magic Kingdom and who do I see walk in front of me over to the side...MARY POPPINS! I stopped and watched her walk inside, I thought about lingering to see if she'd come back out but we had a date with Fantasyland.

We walked through some of the Main Street shops as we made our way up to the Castle. Jen was kind enough to snap this photo for me of this beautiful light.



We made our way to the castle and I still hadn't taken my camera! Can you believe it? I was just enjoying the Magic Kingdom. Jen snapped these photos.






This picture looks like it could be in a Disney brochure!



We walked over to the side of the Castle to head towards Fantasyland and who do we spot??





We were the second group in line and I was so excited, these weren't characters I had met before! Lady Tremaine made a comment about our Tinkerbell shirts and the little bugs on them, she also informed us that pixie dust was actually Tinkerbell snot...just so you all know. They were great and in character and I would wait to meet them in the future.

After we met the ladies, we headed over to Peter Pan's Flight. Funnily enough the fastpass machines were not turned on. We wanted to get ones for later that night. We jumped on and enjoyed our flight to Neverland. I really love Peter Pan. I think it's a wonderful ride and I always notice new things. I could ride it over and over again.

After Peter Pan we went to over to It's a Small World. We were hoping to get on our own boat but a family came over and sat behind us at the last minute. That's okay, we are good sharers.

I finaaaaaally took out my camera and also a little gnome...NOBBY! He loves It's A Small World, sadly this would be the only ride he would experience with us. I am a bad Gnome Wrangler.












The rule follower in me nearly had an heart attack taking this picture but I did it. I had visions of Nobby falling into the water and ruining the ride FOREVER. It turned out cute though!

And with a completed ride of It's A Small World.....I leave you with this....

Delicious Bites, Halloween Frights & Character Delights. LL is Going Back!

great update, I am looking forward to reading more on your day at MK, the start sounds good! I love the ferry boats from the TTC, I think it is a great way to travel to the MK. And sometimes you just need to enjoy everything without taking pictures! Off to check out that new link now!

Pixie dust is actually Tinkerbell snot!

That is good!

I think I want to put that on a t-shirt!

Jen's pics could be in a Disney brochure. Sometimes you do need to put the camera down and just experience it. Good for you!!

I would have been panicking for Nobby's safety too. Glad it turned out OK!

thanks for a Sunday update!

No way, a new pre-trip report. You lucky girl. Marc is a prince straight from a story book!!!

Loved the update. Sometimes its just nice to enjoy the trip and not worry about picture taking. It all looks different when your not always behind the camera. Unfortunately you miss a lot while taking pictures.

I have so got to meet the step sisters. Were they behind the castle? Okay I dont remember those shirts from you PTR. I want one. Would you PM me that design. Please.

Okay I am off to read your new PTR as I turn the darkest shade of green with envy!!

That is an incredible picture of the castle!

Score on meeting the bad girls! We're hoping to get a picture of/with them on our next trip.

Nobby looks cute enjoying the ride.

Great pictures! I agree, sometimes it is so nice to just sit back and enjoy yourself without a camera stuck to your face. I experienced that in November because I had a 2 month old in a sling so I didn't have a chance to take many pictures, it felt more relaxed that way.

That is hilarious about the Tinkerbell snot! We saw those ladies on our last trip but my DD was too scared to approach them. Hopefully we'll speak to them this time.

Can't wait to hear more about your day. As far as the blisters I bought the Band-Aid Friction Block Stick for our PA trip in May. I used it every day and didn't get one blister and we walked A LOT! It doesn't make your feet slick at all either. I love it.

Great update! It must have been nice to have 2 people taking pictures...like that morning, so when one person is taking it all in the other is capturing it. DH doesn't really take pictures and we he does....well ....

Oh LL, I'm so excited for you! And me! A whole new PTR to read.

We met the same Lady Tremain. She was great. So funny and in character.

You did the right thing with your room break. The point of going to WDW is to make wonderful memories. They're not all made in the parks or at restaraunts. thumbsup2

Those castle pictures are AMAZING!!!!

That is cool how you were just enjoying your time in the MK without your camera. Sometimes you just need to do that!

Oh, and I'm off to check out your new PTR too!
