Poor Hannah and her missing tooth. Did the tooth fairy pay a visit?

I love it that Luke liked POC. AND that he helped his sisters like it more.

Uh oh on the housekeeping, and about the bus from hell!!

Yeay for riding Barnstormer twice, and I love that Luke enjoyed Pirates! He is a quick learner!

Ughhh, I can't believe that your rooms weren't done! (I think I know what that piece of paper was because I had to sign it one day last year.)

Poor Hannah and her tooth -- but when the tooth fairy visits at Disney, that's extra cool!

Your comment about two to go does not bode well!

I'm glad Luke enjoyed Pirates. We love that ride so I hope B. does too. I'm glad you got to ride Barnstormer too. Isn't it a fun coaster? Love the picture of Hannah with her arms up.

I think I know what's coming with the room clean-up. Oh man, seems like we are in for a post and a half to finish up the night!
I uploaded over 70 pics to finish the day. I doubt I will get it all in one update... probably two, but soon.

Luke showing up at the pool was beyond stupid. Put the suit on, I will sunscreen him up if needed.

I am glad it all still worked out though-and it sounds like, despite the mood, a pretty successful day of touring the park!

I have heard issues on CSR's housekeeping, I hope your rooms get cleaned... And the bus ride from hell? Oh no....



You got some really great PP pics! I think the above 2 are my favorites so far...

I remembering waking up Sunday and being glad that day was over....

You got a lot accomplished at MK, which is always good!
It made for a nice two days left at MK, and some excellent FPs to use that night.

My kids had never came within a mile... so it was big that Hannah saw him... but Emily she was just starting to get brave.

He literally swam for 15 minutes before we headed back and he slept. I guess he was afraid he was missing out.

The tooth fairy was more generous at WDW (it is four quarters here)

We lost another tooth today.... I got to pull this one, an upper front so she has a big gap now.

Oh, and here I hoped that the whole "please clean our room early" thing would work...I hate juggling the cleaning people and naptime. It doesn't sound like good things are to come from the hints you gave...

Splash and Pirates - two things we don't usually get to do because of nervous kids. Hopefully the next trip. I think my DD would be very jealous of the tooth fairy in Disney! Looking forward to another update!

Somehow we were all ready for the buses at 4:30. We got our ears... poor Luke still did not have any..




See the tooth hole!




It was fantastic to just walk around the building to the buses. Once there we had a bit of a wait... about a half an hour.









Since we were headed to Chef Mickey's we decided to take a MK bus, the monorail. After about twenty minutes we decided whatever we saw: EPCOT or MK would do. So at 5 we finally saw an EPCOT bus (we still had not seen MK). Once we got on the bus that was pretty full, we headed to Blizzard Beach---- you have got to be kidding me. Yesterday the AK buses stopped at Blizzard Beach, and today EPCOT???

But as we pulled in I said to DH, should we get off and grab a bus to the Contemporary--- he was for it once we saw a Contemporary bus right behind us.... we booked it to the bus stop, which was right in front of CSR.

This bus was packed. Not sure where it was coming from, but it was jammed full. My mom had Emily who was falling asleep with her, DH had the stroller, my dad had Luke, and I had two backpacks and helped Hannah keep her balance.

Yes you read right, my five year old was standing, as well as my 60 year old dad with a 10 month old--that is just crazy to me. But it gets better.... we were going along, not far at this point when the woman to my left pokes me and says excuse me. I said yes, and then got this back- can you please watch your bags you might wake the baby! Let me create this visual for you all. This grandma had her granddaughter's entire head in the aisle. The mother was beside her, and all it would have taken was for the mom to hold the sleeping baby if she was that worried. (it was a two year old probably) She did not say I had, but wanted me to be careful. I was totally shocked at her nerve. I had two bags, trying to keep my five year old safe and she was worried about me disturbing her, who was in the aisle. I could not believe it. Then it continued to crack me up as I listened to their conversation... we were passing the monorail track --- that is where they used to ride that monorail, it is not used anymore, just buses now (needless to say they were novices, I hope this was their first bus ride and that they would get a clue about crowded buses)

I also had a great conversation with a family headed to the Poly... they were headed to the luau and were already a half an hour late (there must have been some crazy bus problems that afternoon).

Our ride ended at the Contemporary... Em was asleep, so she got in the stroller. We checked in, there was no line, but we did not take our picture since Em was asleep. They even sat us in a spot where we could pull the stroller up to the table, but she sat up once we got to our table.

The characters were super fun as usual, I thought less rushed than usual too. Emily somewhere that night got brave too!






Too busy eating...



Along the way we got an anniversary treat...



I think it was Mickey who changed Emily's tune... she wanted to hug him... and then away went the character fear!












Luke loved the party time... he clapped away and smiled so cute! This meal was a hit, everyone left full and happy. My parents enjoyed their first trip to Chef Mickey's!

We then boarded the monorail for a night at MK... my favorite nighttime park by far. We made the loop and entered MK. I wanted to get some pictures of the kids on the bench.... Hannah went with my mom to the bathroom, so I got this picture first.



Luke was having none of it... he wanted a bottle, he was having a melt down. When Luke wants a bottle it is bad, even worse when he sees it or the formula dispenser. Well he saw the water bottle, the formula, and wanted his bottle NOW! He had ate a ton, but not had anything to drink, so I started to dig.... and dig... and dig (remember two backpacks) and then I had the sinking feeling... did I forget the bottle. I for the life of me could not find it, so when Hannah and my mom met up with us, I sent them off to Buzz while I was headed to Baby care to buy a bottle --- and got the didn't you check before you left look from mom!

So I unloaded Luke at the Baby Care... and was a sweaty mess after the fast and furious search for the bottle. We went in to buy the bottle, and I got one there, a different kind but I figured he would be fine. Then I went to make the bottle... and yes, you know what I found the the backpack- the darn bottle. That gives you a clue to how much stuff I had with me....

So I asked the CM if I could return the bottle, she said I could at any store, so off we went, but as we reloaded in the stroller a grandma saw me with the bottle and said she was headed in to buy one... they had forgotten theirs... and so there I got rid of my bottle, I actually made money from it ( I said she could have it, but she paid me anyway)

Crisis ended, Luke with his bottle in hand and I headed to Tomorrowland.....

(remember we are still waiting for tears from Em and the bus ride is worse home!)

I hope that Pirates remains on Luke's favorites... and Splash will be so fun when everyone can ride!

Some people have quite the nerve! I think you handled the bus situation well.

I love that first group picture with Donald. It is like Em is looking over at Luke to make sure he is having a good time.

Okay, so I am sure you realize that we are all laughing WITH you WITH you, not at you... but this has certainly been a story to tell!!!! GOODness!!! That said:

1. The people on the bus -- GET real.
2. The busses in general, sometimes I think Disney must change the busses around just to keep people guessing! UGH.

AND finally

3. That photo of you and your family with DONALD, is hands down the best photo of all of you and so adorable and full of energy that it belongs on Disney literature!!! I expect to see it on a brochure in the near future!!! Your matching shirts, your amazing smiles, Truly. The best.

And then, I read that the saga isn't over and there is more??? Oh I have to keep my hat on for this one!!!

Oh. My. Gosh. Was the woman on the bus for real? What an idiot!

Looks like you had a great time at Chef Mickey's -- everyone is just beaming and I love that Em got over her fear of the characters!

Oh, those Mommy bags -- what a trial they are to us! Glad you found the bottle eventually though.

GREAT update, Laura!! WOW--the nerve of that lady! Some people think it's all about them, don't they?! I can't believe there weren't any men that got up to let you, your kiddos, and your dad sit down! That's ridiculous! We only experienced something like this once on our trip. It made me thankful we were staying at the Poly and had other modes of transportation! CRAZY!! I LOVE all of the family pics of ya'll at CM! So glad to hear the characters weren't rushing--I sure felt rushed at our breakfast there! And I really like your matching Daisy shirts! I've not been able to find shirts for me, Ally, & Claire that match---soooo cute!! Glad you found your bottle! Can't wait to read more!

The ordeal on the bus just irked me! I would have been thinking "Lady, since I don't have a seat, the aisle is my seat - so technically your child's head is in my seat!"

I chuckled when she thought the monorail doesn't run anymore. HA! RIDE THE CROWDED BUSES LADY!! No monorail for you!!

Okay, I'm mean.



I'll be nice - I do hope it was her first bus ride and she learned the ropes, and that the monorail still runs, and some manners!

You guys look SO CUTE in your matching shirts at CM! Excellent pictures!!!

And the Luke meltdown...oh...its awful with the crying baby - ugh. I've so been there with the overloaded Mommy bag.
