I really want to try Wolfgang Pucks. It's on my list for the Fall, it sounds so yummy.

So glad you were able to make it to the fountains.

You are an inspiration - getting so much done with 3 young kids in tow! We have our first 2 kid trip coming up and I am starting to get nervous!

Two was much easier IMO. I am not sure we would have survived without my parents... but someday we will try it!

Em ate some of Hannah's leftovers... we then had her credit to use later... I had a hard time figuring out the odd meal left!

I really want to try Wolfgang Puck's on our June trip. My SIL and BIL went a month ago (they had the CS plan), and raved about it. I think they ended up going back during the week they were there!

Can't wait to see CP - hope you got some great shots on your own on Main Street!
We had a great dinner for sure. I would recommend it to anyone.

We had some good pics... some were awfully dark from the Photopass guy.

Did you get a picture of Luke in his new ears?
I could see Hannah's ring flashing in that picture while she was waiting to eat.
Luke's ears are coming up. I was ordering prints today and saw them...

I always love the pictures of your girls in the fountains -- I even think of them when we actually pass the fountains because your girls always have such a great time there!

Can't wait to see Luke in his first set of ears!
I think there are things that remind me of people from DIS too. AK parade certainly MeMom... and as I saw her shopping picture stuff I would chuckle- Bo your sweet Chelsea, and of course TSM made me think of Connor!

I did not even get a bite... my children ate it all!

What a relaxing evening you had! I treasure those slow paced nights where you kick back and enjoy. It's one of the best kinds of magic on the trip! WPE is a favorite of ours too, delicious! I think I might try that quesadilla this time around, I have read many positive reviews of it.

I look forward to the pics of Luke in his ears!

Breakfast with Pooh!! I won't miss it!! I love WPE, too, it's just always so crowded!

Loved the fountain fun... how strange that parents would let their kids run around in wet underwear in public!

Lovely update... a wonderful, relaxed evening in WDW!

Hey Sweetie!!! Your DHS day sounded heavenly!!! I hope we have as much luck as you there too!!! I am so glad you got to enjoy the thrill rides with your dad!!! So nice to be able to switch off with the kids with all the extra help you had!!!

Your night at DTD sounded so relaxing!!! Is WP a CS or TS???? Sounds good.....sounds like something we would enjoy!

I am glad you had a good experience with the buses at CSR....this is why we like that resort...since busing is such an issue for us! I am sure that helped with all the kiddos and strollers and whatnot!!!

I am SO looking forward to details about your next day!!!

I am uploading the next update. I have four days left, but I plan to get them done in the next week... we are busy with soccer starting, back to school work for me, and soaking up the last few free days. The first week of school for Hannah and I includes two birthdays so we have to also get a big birthday bash planned.

Monday, June 21st

We were headed back to Magic Kingdom, hoping for a redo. This was a big day of eating- we were having breakfast at Crystal Palace at 8:20 and then heading to LeCellier that night at 6:00.

Our plan for MK was this: Tomorrowland, Fantasyland and Toontown. We were also hoping to leave just after lunch so we could swim and rest before our night at EPCOT.

We got up early, caught the first bus around at 7:30 that we saw and had a pretty much empty bus to MK. There was less than five others with us on the bus. When we got there I was suprised to see a line where the early ADR entry was, and we waited until just a few minutes before 8 to get in. So there was a bit of a crowd on Mainstreet, but we did not need to hurry!



I tried to get all three... but no one cooperated. I do think though I have the girls with Walt already by themselves.

We stopped up towards the Castle for some pictures. It was a sunny day.. these look dark, much to my dismay!









Then we went to check in at Crystal Palace.

I was super worried about missing the characters, because I did not want to wait around. So I seemed to dash and dart to get my crazy kids food all the time. Luke ate I think half the buffet that day!



It was so different having Emily be so brave... she had a blast at this meal, she was really outgoing and in love with the characters!












Everyone ate a lot, the food was good and there were lots of choices. I am still not sure which breakfast I enjoyed more between CP and O'Hana's.

We were not in a huge hurry, I did not want to rush anyone but we did pay our tip and bill early so we could leave when we were done. It was super fun to watch the crowds race to the second rope drop while we were relaxing inside!



And we were off. We headed back towards Fantasyland. Emily again wanted to see Ariel (perhaps having the dresses on inspired this) and DH went to get PP FPs. There was of course no line for Ariel, since it again opened early and it was just about ten minutes after nine. (Dumbo however was crazy)

As we walked through the Grotto it was a fabulous moment.... Ariel was so excited to see the girls. She was once again terrific and gushed all about their beautiful dresses! She was beyond sweet and Emily adores Ariel. That is what inspired the dresses to begin with, my sister in law knew Em would love those dresses to met her Ariel.




Emily was on











Once we were done there we headed to Tomorrowland. We were going to ride the Racecars...

I was the official photographer, and the guys took the big girls!





Then we rode Astro Orbiter as a walk on, Tomorrowland was dead! We walked right on the elevator and up to ride!

By this point Toontown had opened, so we went to see Minnie's house. My girls loved showing my parents all the fun stuff in there.









Then into Mickey's house.



The girls also rode the Barnstormer this morning, but I stayed with Luke! We took a ride around on the train....





We stayed on and went the entire loop. Back to Fantasyland we headed.



The girls wanted to cool off in Ariel's Grotto! It was once again terribly hot!











and now we went to





After Mickey's Philharmagic, we went to use our Peter Pan FPs, but Peter Pan was down... so we did IASW- our longest line of the trip. Honestly since PP was down it had a long line, outside the building, in the sun...





and then we went back outside to see that PP was still down. I was sad, we had only gotten that FP and we knew we were leaving soon. I asked the CM if I could have a FPs for later the trip, since we were leaving MK and not coming back that day. The CM said to take it to another FP ride and they would honor it since PP was down- done!

We went to try to ride the Jungle Cruise. We had not rode it yet, so that was the ride of choice because everyone could do it. Well after a few minutes in a long FP line (btw the CM was not happy that the PP CM told us that, but he allowed it) DH, Luke, Em and I said we were done. Luke was tired, Em was tired and hot so we left Hannah with my parents in line and said we would see them at CSR.

We headed up a crowded Main Street through the shops, and Emily scored her beloved charm bracelet! Hannah had one, so she wanted one so Daddy got her that. We were off to the buses in a flash, waited just a minute or two and were back in our rooms quickly. We decided to take the kids swimming first nap second...and then the rest of the gang returned. They checked out the tree house next, which Hannah loved. Hence we have watched Swiss Family Robinson twice since returning home, and it is on the birthday list as a DVD Hannah wants!

After a bit Luke and I returned for naps, and even I got a bit of a Disney nap! Rested, showered and hungry we were off to EPCOT!

Wonderful pictures. The picture of Luke, Roy and Minnie is so cute. Luke has the cutest expression looking at Minnie.

The girls dresses were just right to meet Ariel, and the pictures were fun to view. I love the way Hannah poses in her pictures with her hands.

Hannah started at 8lbs 15 oz, Em was 7lbs 9 oz, and Luke was 7lbs 2 oz. Emily surpassed Hannah and well... she still has a baby look and some chunk. Luke does not have the belly or cheeks his sister has.

I am so looking forward to some more slow paced off days. I doubt we will ever do a seven straight park day again... and having three kids under six just added to the craziness of the days we had.

Kathy
My mom and I were disgusted about the underwear incident. No child is going to melt away in wet clothing when it is a heat wave like that one was.

WP is a CS.... such a great deal and too many choices. I had hoped to try something else, but I got a standby favorite ( I had two kids who wanted to sit down at the only available table and a sleeping child to get out of line-so no time to study menu!)

That was a fantastic day... the start of a great last few days. I am sure you will hit WP sometime, it is a great spot!

I could eat there everynight. DH loves Earl of Sandwich, but I think now he understands what he has been missing, especially on the dining plan!
