I am so impressed!! La Nouba, princess breakfast. a fantastic get together with Tim and Lesley, a fabulous Wishes dinner and more to come!!

I'm so glad Donald was better behaved this year! Last year that was so sad!

Your family always looks so cute, but when you went to CA Grille, you looked super spiffy!! Love the boys shirts!

I really liked SS when we used our developer points, it is so pretty, We were in Congress Park and I loved going to DTD from there.

Looking forward to more.

what a great end to your EPCOT day. We did KP Mission in Japan as well - very fun! That piggy bank game looks amazing, wish we would have tried it

I've never eaten at Cali Grill, but everything I've read and your description and how it moved you... sounds amazing! What a magical day!!!

Day 7 part 1 our Anniversary!

Day 7....Our Anniversary!

I should have realized it sooner but with our very late night last night, I forgot we had a before park opening breakfast at the Crystal Palace scheduled for this morning! So we reluctantly all got up and went down to the bus stop! I never thought of canceling though because this is probably my favorite ADR to have! There is NOTHING like walking up Main St. and taking pictures with hardly anyone else around!!!

When we arrived at the Magic Kingdom, there was a little bit of a line so we passed the time taking pictures!!








Eventually we were let in and as we were walking through the tunrstile I recognized the woman standing there! She was the one that picked us to open the park last year! I was SO EXCITED to see her, I said "you probably don't remember us but you picked us to open the park last year!" Of course she didn't remember and I told her I understood and I also told her that she really made our dreams come true and that morning was something we will remember forever! She was so sweet and said she thought it was so thoughtful of us to let her know how much we enjoyed it and how that is the best part of her job! We then hightailed it to check in and then we waited!!



















We were finally called to be seated and when we reached the door the CM announced Happy Anniversary! So everyone clapped!! I was impressed that Bryan wore his Anniversary button and I didn't even have to ask!!

We were seated at our table and they had it decorated with all of this ribbon!



Then our waitress brought us a card signed from the characters! SO CUTE!!





We went to get our food and the characters started coming quickly there after...







I had asked the waitress for our bill as soon as we sat down, because I wanted to make sure we were out in time for rope drop! You all know how much Bryan likes those ropes!!!!

The boys had fun in the 100 acre wood!!





Eeyore always seems to take forever to come around so we missed him!! Oh well, he is depressing anyway!!!! We finished up and went outside to head to one of the ropes!

I took these pics. on our way out of the Crystal Palace, this restaurant is so pretty!





We had decided on the Tommorowland rope but the one closest to Cosmic Rays and the Tea Cups!

We took these empty park pics. along the way!








COMING UP NEXT:

A speed bump!

A duck encounter of the disgusting kind!

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!!!

Hey Diane,

Happy Belated Anniversary!!!! Sounds like you had a wonderful day, there is nothing I love more than the Magic Kingdom first thing in the morning, it truly is magical. We have always been late for our early morning CRT ressie's because I don't move quickly down Main Street when it's empty!! I take it all in and then some.

Love that Bryan wore his button without you even asking How wonderful is that....must have something to do with pixie dust maybe??

I love how they do the cards and decorate the table, just makes you feel even more special doesn't it?

As I was reading your report, I realized that this time in 3 weeks we will have just arrived in Orlando this trip has kinda snuck up on me....I'm not complaining though

Hi Diane,
Great update as always. Love the empty Mk park pics. So nice of you to tell the CM how much it meant to you all to open the park. Looks like you had a nice Anniversary breakfast. for Brian wearing his pin. My hubby is always good about that too.

Your pictures of the empty park and Crystal Palace are beautiful. I wish I had thought to take a picture of the glass dome.
