I am so glad that location worked for you all!!! I was hoping it would! I am sure it was hard to come back to CSR after your time at the CR, but I hope your stay there was still good!

Great finish to your day at AK. Glad you got to stick around and see the parade. I love the AK parade. It's one of my favs. You really got to see and do a lot!

I wanted to try the Pepper Market while I was at CSR, but I was finished with the meal plan and had used up all my CS. The price just seemed a little high to pay OOP.

Did you start getting adjusted to your new room and move? I really had a hard time going from AKV to CSR. My organization was gone!

I have been staying up too late scrapbooking, I think I am taking tonight off.

We enjoyed CSR. Overall we have nothing bad to say about it, I personally like PO better but I am glad we stayed there.

Our room at CSR was always trashed. (part of today's update) My mom brought a lot of snacks, which with the heat and dining plan we did not eat. Plus strollers, etc.... we were stuffed!

I totally agree Pepper Market would be a killer out of pocket!

Way to go Doug taking Luke back like that. Looks like the girls had an awesome time at the parade. I know much you wanted to get there and I am glad you did! The pool looks so fun, and I think Pepper Market would be the #1 reason I'd want to stay at CSR.

Finally all caught up! Such a great report. Hope I can remember all I want to comment on!
We have some of the same princess shirts! Congrat on the upgrade! All your pool pics were so cute. Yay for Emily going all the way down the slide, Cayley stopped half way and I had to crawl down and get her at CBR-fun times LOL
CONGRATS on DVC. We are also buying and AKV is our front runner as of now. Though we are planning to go back in May and would like to try BLT for the monorail! Love the report so far!!

Ahhhh, loving all your CSR pictures!

Sounds like a great day at AK-your girls braving the 'big rides' and DH taking Luke! Plus accomplishing Nemo and the parade! I really enjoyed the parade there too-so unique and colorful and fun.

I'm glad to read you found the bag!!!

Hannah's pose at the pool is priceless. She's adorable!

I am trying to get the update done. I am struggling with my photopass share copying (I got the CDs today... but grr I have two CDs with the same pictures, missing the last 120 pics. Of course I tried to call and the office was closed, so no resolving that today. Luckily my pictures are not the ones that I don't have, but I hoped to get the CDs out this weekend, and that is not going to happen now.

So the update is coming...

Saturday, June 20th

Magic Kingdom Day! This is always my favorite day, and this trip I was super excited. We had three MK mornings planned, and two nights, so we had lots of MK time. Plus dinner tonight was at Chef Mickey's does it get any better than that?

We were up and ready to go by 7:30 ish. Infact, DH called housekeeping to see if they could clean our room before we returned in the afternoon, we knew Luke would need a nap, and thought maybe it could happen. The CM assured him no problem, thanks for calling it would be done by 9! Great... and they would do my parents room too!

So we headed to the bus stop and had just a minute or two wait and we were off.

We arrived super early again, but we wanted to catch Dumbo and be in front of the rope drop crowd. I had tried to have our paper tickets put on our Keys to the World the day before at CSR... it did not work. Who knows why, but I was glad I kept the paper ones in my wallet... that would have been a mess!

We actually saw an old co-worker of DH's as we waited to get in...so we caught up with her and her husband.

We snapped a few pictures..









I have a picture of the girls sitting there from last year I tried to recreate... no go. they would not cooperate....



We did not watch the show to open the park, but boy we sang along since we listen to it on our CD a ton. We promised we would watch it another day... we wanted to not give up our prize spot...





Pretty empty... and we made it on the second ride of Dumbo for the day. We did witness a pusher upper who had not stayed with her group.... I cannot get why people think lines are not meant for them to wait in







As we were waiting for Dumbo we saw that Ariel was open, and the girls wanted to see her. I was not wanting to do this (they had their Tink dresses on, not the Ariel ones) but we went in... and once again the same lady pushed in front of us there... I need to get with my group. Luckily we did not see her again!





Then we rode Snow White and I headed over to wait for Tinkerbell. I was very specific... ride Winnie the Pooh and get the girls to me ASAP! The rest went on Winnie the Pooh, and I got over to Toontown. There were maybe five groups there, some with strollers which I knew they would have to park....I wanted the girls on foot so we would bypass that.

After waiting a few minutes I heard the CM say they would open at 9:45. I was getting a bit nervous that they would not be there... and people kept coming over. I see DH and the girls exit Winnie the Pooh...but they are not coming my way. At this point it is like 9:43 and my spot is a waste if I don't have the girls and I was just getting steaming mad. It was hot, and I had told him time and time again we needed to get this done today and first thing..... I gave up and went to find them, because the rope was dropping and I had no girls, who were in their beautiful dresses to see Tink. This was not my finest moment, and to be honest it is something I won't live down. It is referred to as the Tinkerbell Massacre!

I walked very briskly up to the Pooh Playful spot where they were all standing and lost it... I was so stinking mad that DH was just standing there with the girls. So after I screamed (yes I yelled) at him, I took the girls with me and off we went. We were now in the back of the pack that were entering Toontown, instead of the front. Looking back it probably only lost about twenty minutes.... but I was ticked I was standing in the heat and he did not listen. We did make up ground because we did not have the stroller...and I was not sure where the rest of them would be. I had my camera, no video camera though.







It was cool in there, and the line did move. I would suspect we waited less than twenty five minutes, but oh well. I did regain a bit of composure, but to be honest I did not enjoy this much because I was mad at DH, and mostly myself.... and I needed out of my funk!

Fawn greeted us... she was great!







Then Tink... she was sassy! Funny though!





Then Rosetta,



(I have tons of Photopass pics I will post tomorrow from AK, EPCOT and the Fairies... to get caught up)

The girls loved it, they looked so cute in their dresses, and my number one thing to do was done, but my unmagical moment was just not something I could shake!

Luckily they were all in the hallway waiting for us. I felt somewhat bad DH missed it, but I was still mad that he did not listen. I also think once they saw the line was over an hour that quick they realized I was right (no one ever admitted that though).

Up next... would I get over my funk....all three children melt down, and a bus moment I will never forget!

I hope you got out of your funk!

I was thrilled to see the parade with my girls. I hope as they get bigger when can split more often apart and do what they want. Pepper Market was yummy!

BLT and the monorail will be nice. I hope we do a short trip someday and just hit MK and EPCOT and stay there.

AK might have been our best day. I felt like we left there and had done a lot.

I can relate, WHY don't they listen???
Don't you ever just want to reach over and push, the pusher upper? They make me mad!
I'm glad the girls had some fun with the fairies and I'm sorry you were in a funk. I hope you recovered quickly because I have a feeling you are going to be taking care of some meltdowns.... Three in fact!

You know I think everybody has at least one of those moments where things just seem out of control and you just lose it. I hope your day and mood improved.

Yes, everyone has their moments at WDW! I hope you were able to have fun the rest of the day!! I can totally relate to what you were saying about not wanting to get the girls pics taken w/Ariel b/c they were wearing their Tink dresses!! I was the same way! I made the girls wait to visit Ariel's Grotto until the day they wore thier Ariel dresses!! The girls look so happy with the faires!! We saw Tink and Fawn, too!! But we saw Silvermist instead of Rosetta.

The Tinkerbell Massacre -- I love the name! Laura, you know I can relate to this! You were very specific about what to do with the girls and yet, no one was listening. I would have been furious especially since meeting the fairies without a super long wait takes a lot of preplannning! I am glad you were able to meet them though -- the pics with Tink are too cute!

I am very worried about the rest of your day though!

Oh gee.... my kids are not really into meeting characters, I don't know why, but I really understand how time consuming and important it is to get these in without wasting time overall, and so I get why you snapped! Obviously this was an important moment for your girls, and it meant a lot to you to get them there! I don't know if I should look forward to the next update...
