The night that changed me forever!

I don't know how or why it came up...I think maybe because Todd had never rode Soarin' before. But there is still time I believe it is somewhere around 11pm and Epcot has the EMH hours so it will be open til midnight tonight. Jason and I had 3 Soarin Fast Passes in our pocket so we gave one to Rob and some of others had Soarin fast passes too. Great minds think alike! We all head over to the Land!

Why Jason let me be in charge of taking pictures, I do not know!




We are almost to the land pavilion and I have no idea why or how or what is going on and then I realize! Todd is proposing to Jaime!


Inside The Land I take a picture of the happy couple! And I get to be maid of honor!


A reenactment of December 2008 when Todd was a flattie. Did Rob have Todd's flattie last year? I am guessing so!


The group getting ready to board!


Hey Chris is here?!? I don't even know when we met up with him...but this was the other crazy guy in our group from the Wonderquest game on the ship!


Anna and I!


Jason wants to compete with the Tiara so he breaks out his hat from lunch.


Sorry that these next pics are so blurry.....hmm I wonder why....


Jason doing a reanactment of the pic of me kissing Jaime with the Tiara on! I swear it has some magical powers!


Ummmmm......


We asked for front row! Meaning no feet dangling in the picture! I never rode front row before I was beyond excited! You know what else is so cool about these people? They know where all the Hidden Mickey's are! Sitting in the front row, breathing in the pine, citrus, sea, discovering new Hidden Mickeys and being with 7 friends you didn't even know you had until this very moment! We don't want to leave!

We all ride on Spaceship Earth



and part ways....Jaime is going home tomorrow. Todd, Anna, Kim and Rob? Are going to be at HS at rope drop tomorrow morning, Jason, Aaron, Nana and I plan on doing HS tomorrow too! So we will see them there.

We all exchange hugs! Anna gives a FANTASTIC hug! I want another one soon!

We part from them and Jaime is left with Jason and I as we head towards our bus. I really don't remember much here other than feeling completely changed and realizing that I have found some great friends! I remember telling Jaime that I love her and giving her some more hugs! If it wasn't for Jaime that 1st day on Fun on a Bus to port and saving a seat for Jason and I and talking to us like we have known each other for years...and sitting again with us all the times we were together...I don't know if I would have been able to relax and have fun and meet so many great people...and JUST PLAIN BE MYSELF! I owe it all to you Jaime! Thanks so much for helping me realize that I don't have to feel insecure and to just be myself, PEOPLE WILL LIKE ME!

Disney's Hollywood Studios w/ Aaron


Pre-Trip Plans:
Today is Hollywood Studios w/ Aaron (our son) and Nana (Jason's Mom)

The hours are 8 am (EMH)- 7pm

Must Do's since Aaron will be with us:
TSMM
Playhouse Disney (we took Aaron to this when he was 18 months, but it was before he really watched all the shows. Now every morning he watches Playhouse Disney...so I think he will really LOVE this show)
Meet the characters from Pixar's Cars
Honey I Shrunk the Audience play area (we played here last time and Aaron enjoyed it)

We have an 11:30 am reservation for Sci-Fi Drive In. We ate here on our last trip with Aaron and really enjoyed it, unfortunately it was on Nana's last day on our last trip so she didn't get to go.....we are going back there for her to try it, and Jason really had a good time with Aaron here.

Maybe we will see the Lights Motor Action (have yet to see this)
and Block Party Bash (saw this last time wasn't impressed)
Don't know if there will be a cool Wall-E character interaction yet...there really wasn't last time...there was a cool place for a meet and greet with Wall-E but I never did see him

Then this evening we have an ADR at 6:20 pm for Chef Mickey's. We really enjoyed the characters the last time, although Aaron was pretty frightened by Minnie Mouse


I know I really haven't done this yet, as much as I would have liked to....but I actually came up with the design on Aaron's shirt today! I was inspired by a Irish themed shirt that said That's It I am going to Nana's with shamrocks on it.


Well, as you can imagine Jason I were late for rope drop at DHS, just by a little bit. We didn't end up seeing anyone from last night early on in the day...that might change later.
.

We head over to TSMM to get our first round of fast passes! Guess who is over at the fast pass machines also getting her fast pass? It is Nana! Yay! She made it to the park pretty early today! The Stand-by line for TSMM is pretty long so we debate on what to do. None of the shows really don't start until later so we decide to head over and do The Great Movie Ride, since the last time we were here the ride vehicles actually stopped in the temple room and we had to get out of the ride vehicles and walk through the ride to exit. One of these days I need to get all my videos on to YouTube as I was taping the entire ride when that happened, so I continued to tape it as we were walking through the sets backwards...kinda interesting.

Ok so anyway! I was worried about the Alien scene...but luckily right when we got into that section we distracted Aaron with the holy grail....AKA the iPod Touch. Aaron seemed to really enjoy the whole shoot out scene...I was also a little worried with that one. I don't know if he really understood what was going on.

It was close to 9:30 so we head over to Playhouse Disney Live! and catch the 9:30 show! Aaron LOVED this!! He loved the bubbles and the leaves and all of his favorite characters, and of course the music! (that reminds me in less than a month we are taking Aaron to his 1st concert, The Imagination Movers!)

Aaron intently watching...(he looks so weird with a binkie)


Liking the streamers!


The Stage!


The show is over and it is time to use our TSMM fast passes! This ride never gets old! (we just bought this game for the Wii and it sure brings us back...we just need to get misters and air compressors) On the way out we grab more fastpasses!


It is getting close to our 11:20 ADR at Sci-Fi, but I think we can squeeze one more thing in so we catch Muppetvision!! Aaron really enjoys this movie, he even laughed at some of the movie! I am sure glad he does, because Mama and Dada really enjoy this movie too!

Time for lunch!




Bad DISer no food porn.....what was I thinking! Well, I probably was thinking (it is just a hamburger and a shake!)

After lunch we head over to catch the new show The American Idol Experience. I am really interested into seeing how this show is and Aaron is a big fan of American Idol, so this should be fun! Throughout the day we were seeing people by Sci-Fi being interviewed in front of the American Idol back drop.

We make it into the 1:00 show. We get seats right up front! I turn to my right and who do I see? Emiel, Yvette, Tonya and Shelly! Hi Guys!! I really didn't get to talk to any of them on the cruise that much...we said Hi and Bye and we went on our separate ways.

The American Idol show is great! Aaron sang ALOT! Oh oh oh wo wo! I am surprised he didn't turn to me and ask for popcorn (we always have a bag of popcorn when we watch at home). Aaron was just enthralled with all the lights and the big screens and the music! It was awesome to watch him watch the show.....I really thought that Jason would not care for it at all (he doesn't like the real American Idol)....but I was shocked to find out after the show, that he would like to catch a finale show before we leave WDW!

We rode TSMM again and headed over to the Honey I shrunk the kids play area. We also walked around the back lot.



Jason and I were going to ride Tower of Terror while Aaron played at the play area, but we decided against it and came back. It was a good thing we did because Aaron was hot and kinda cranky, Dada and Nana were too.




So Nana and Dada took a bus over to the Poly to enjoy the beach and get a Dole Whip while I take Aaron to the Animation Academy! Yeah, I know what you are thinking! You are going to take a just over two year old into the quiet drawing class and expect him to be quiet?

Surprisingly he was AWESOME! Well, not really surprisingly....because he is a really good kid. He looked up at me a few times all happy and having fun and just to say Momma! And I had to tell him to shhhh....but he didn't understand, that I just wanted him to talk quieter. Poor little kid.
We learned how to draw Tinkerbell. Or, I shall say Aaron learned how to draw Tinkerbell. Aaron held the pencil for the whole class, I just guided his hand when the teacher told us to draw the certain lines. It turned out pretty neat I think!


Time to go meet Nana and Dada at the Poly Beach....oh wait....a Photopass Photographer! We have really been not using our PP card as much as we should have this trip! It was raining off and on at this point, the torrential rain is about to start!



Ta-Daa!


Hard to make a 2 year old point on command....otherwise, they are always pointing!

Awww! Thanks Brook! I really was scared about taking him in.....I really thought he would disrupt the class! So glad I did it though, he really didn't make much of a peep, and a great free souvenir!

I wish, you could make my TR everyday! How are you!?! How is your dad feeling?
Wow, I didn't even notice the wigs, but yeah, the show was a lot of fun!

Hey Natalie! Sorry, I tend to try to post one chapter a week, but last week I know I didn't get around to it! Maybe there will be a twofer this week. It is hard to keep up with FB, my Designs, work full time (where I do not have access to the boards or FB) and taking care of Aaron! I am having a small surgery (gum graft) on Thursday so maybe I can get some extra time to put some more up Thursday night!

Aaron and I head out to the buses. We are waiting in the Poly line and Aaron is getting a bit antsy. It is hot in the sun and the TTC bus is pulling up! So we hop over to that line and go to the TTC. I am not sure exactly where this bus will drop us off at the TTC but at least we will be on an air conditioned bus!

Aaron really hams it up for a "grandma" sitting across from us. We chat and soon we are at the TTC! I call Jason to find out where they are and they are sitting back by the beach overlooking Seven Seas Lagoon. It was a short walk over to the Poly! Glad I took the first bus!

We walk through the great ceremonial house and I see that one of the activities in the lobby is just getting over so I ask a cm if I could get a lay.

We meet Dada and Nana at the beach! Aaron was deathly afraid of sand the summer he was one, now we can't get him out of it! He immediately runs to the beach.


And I strike up a conversation with someone that is leaving on the Wonder tomorrow! I don't even know how the conversation started, or who started it. All I remember was she was talking to me forever, while Aaron played at my feet with the sand! She of course was a newbie for cruising and asked me a million and one questions, halfway through, I was really wishing Jason would come over and SAVE ME! But he didn't! I guess, I looked like I was having too much fun talking to her and Dada and Nana were enjoying watching Aaron play in the sand. When she finally was done talking to me I took some pictures of Aaron!
(I can't wait until the day I no longer have a point and shoot camera!)




We really love these next two pics: (see the castle?)





Time to take the Monorail over to the Contemporary for our 6:20 ADR at Chef Mickey's!


We head in and check in a wee bit early. There was a bit of a wait. I believe we got seated close to 7.
(I think there is something about Aaron that makes me forget to take food porn pictures ...or maybe I don't take pictures of food that I have already taken a picture of? This is our 2nd time eating at Chef Mickey's.)

Pluto is the 1st one to our table:
Aaron is scared!


Goofy is next:


Goofy decides to imitate Aaron:

(I love this picture and how Aaron's eyes just pop out from between his arms!)

Donald Duck:


He musta heard it through the grapevine:

(I think Donald does a much better impression of Aaron)

Ut Oh! It is the Dreaded Minnie Mouse!!!! When we first took Aaron here he cried (Check earlier in my PTR to see the picture)


Nana is a good buffer, she is still blocking Minnie from me right?




Finally time for the BIG CHEESE!

(WOW! Aaron is not Shy!)

Mickey motioned about liking Aaron's shirt! And Aaron was enamored!

(He couldn't take his eyes off of Mickey!)


Jason and I were going to go to MK and add Park hopping to our tickets tonight...but we felt that the 100 dollars xtra was not worth it. It started raining a little and we just really wanted to spend time with Aaron we missed him like crazy!
So we all head back to Pop!
Waiting in line for the bus, these ducks aren't afraid!


Someone was pooped! I don't think he had a nap today!


He was drooling!


What are these things...I mean I think they are for luggage, but por que?



We got surprises when we got back to our rooms!

Aaron is so adorable on the beach! The pics of him with the castle in the background are definitely postcard material

I think it was so great that you met Jamie on this trip - I've never been blessed with the opportunity (yet) but she truly is a sweetheart and it was very special of her to take you and Jason under her wings, so to speak, to make you feel comfortable on the cruise. She definitely is a celebrity! But now you and Jason are celebrities in your own right so I would love to meet you too sometime in the future - I'm sure you would make me feel comfortable (as I'm pretty shy and tend to stay in the back when there's a crowd.)

I loooove those sleeping pictures. His cheeks all squishy on Daddy's shoulder, and the legs curled up so the butt sticks out - and the drooling down his back!!! So adorable! Even the drool, because it's a sweet little baby's and funny!!!

The beach pictures are great too! Glad to see Aaron was lovin' Mickey! He seems pretty curious about Donald there too.

Awww! Thanks! I really like Aaron's beach pictures too! The sad thing is...this pictures were taken with a good ole point and shoot 4.0 MP camera! I can't imagine what they would look like when I get that camera of my dreams!

It is funny, cause Jaime and I actually met before...we both live very close to Chicago and we met at a DIS meet at the Doorway to Dreams store at the Woodfield Mall back in May of 2008! A whole year before we actually met! Yes, she definitely welcomed us right in! It was great!!! She said she knew we were cool because at the Meet in May of 2008 we were wearing shirts from Epcot's 25th Anniversary! Wow! Jason and I are celebrities! I kinda like it! I think Brandie called us or at least me a Rock Star, I kinda liked it .

Ooohh! I would love to meet you too! And I would definitely make you very comfortable! I am pretty shy at first, but I still always give hugs! And I would bring you out to the front for that HUG! Everybody needs a hug, right Tonya?!?

Hi Brook! Yes, I love the sleeping pictures too! I couldn't stop taking pictures of him all tuckered out! I am glad he was loving Mickey too, as he is named after the mouse! Aaron Mickey . Wow! I didn't even notice that about Donald Duck! I went back and looked at the pictures and you were right!

We went to Aaron's 1st concert yesterday and saw the Imagination Movers! It was such a great show! Aaron had a ball and as soon as it was over he looked up at me and said, "Fun Fun!" Then he turned to the stage and waved and said, "Bye, Movers!"

Magic Kingdom w/ Aaron

Pre-Trip Plans: Today we will be going to Magic Kingdom with Aaron and Nana! What will we be doing here? AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!! I am a little saddened that TTA will be down as we got some really cute pictures of Aaron on the TTA in September and would have liked to get more to compare how much he has grown. We will be getting his picture next to Pooh's house.

We will be eating lunch at the Colombia Harbor house so Jason can get his Disney Chicken Nuggets!!

We will take the boat over to Fort Wilderness around 5pm so we will be there for our dinner reservations at Trails End Buffet. We ate here on our last trip and LOVED IT!!! It is soooo good and such a good value!

After dinner we will go to Chip and Dales Sing-a-long like we did last time! It was a good time and hope Nana likes it!


Jason and I wake up and head over to the MK! We get there right as the train is pulling away and the gates are open for the beginning of the day!
Wow! We look tired! (And this is the only Photopass picture we took today! We really didn't utilize Photopass as much as we should have this trip)


We like to head to the back of the park. Since, many head to Fantasyland and since Aaron and Nana aren't with us yet, we head to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad to maybe get a Fastpass. But of course there is literally no wait, so we get on the coaster and when the ride is done, there is still hardly anyone waiting to board, so they ask us if we just want to stay on and go again, of course! I think we may have went around for a 3rd time, but I don't remember now. We hop off of Big Thunder and head over to Splash to get a Fastpass for later, but the Fastpass return time is 10:00 AM, and it is 9:20 or so by now. So we decide to just ride it now! We never get that wet anyway.
Next we head over to the Haunted Mansion since Nana and Aaron haven't called us yet. On the way over to the HM we see Donald dressed as Davy Crockett. I tell Jason to get his picture taken with him! He declines. He later tells me that he can pose so that I can just photoshop Donald Duck into the pictures! Oh yeah, that sounds like fun! We run with it!
Here is our 1st pose on the way to HM



Then before we ride Haunted Mansion.



Nana calls us as we are about to board our Doombuggy and they meet us by where else? it's a small world! We board a boat for our adventure with the dolls of the world! Once....twice....three times! Ok running total is now up to 10! We head over and ride Pooh! On our way we snap this pic!

(I don't know why more people take the picture from this side of the sword...it makes for such a pretty picture. I mean the carousel is pretty too, but um....how can you compete with the castle .

And it is time for some lunch! Well, we already ate at CHH on Thursday so we opt for Pinocchio's Village Haus. I can't remember if I like the pizza or not, but I think this would be a fun place to Aaron to eat considering how much he likes it's a small world! We are waiting outside of the restaurant a little before 11am and a castmember informs us that they aren't ready yet. We finally realize it is open and the castmember standing outside the door and who is still standing at the door never informed us! Luckily, there was still a booth next to the window over looking it's a small world!


(wow, Jason looks extremely tired! Don't you always have to take a vacation from your vacation!)


I ACTUALLY REMEMBERED TO TAKE A FOOD PIC! I really do think it has to do with the fact that I already have pictures of the other food that I forgot to take pictures of...not a matter or forgetting just a matter of duplicating, if that makes any sense. Who really needs two pictures of chicken strips? Oh yeah! That's right, maybe you do need two pictures of chicken strips! One picture would be of actual chicken strips, and the next picture would be of chicken nuggets! LOL!
Without further ado the food porn!

(Are those Disney Chicken Nuggets I spy in the top right corner, but of course!)

Aaron and I actually really LOVED the pizza, and we are from Chicago!! GASP!! I can't wait to have some more! Does this make me crazy?

Donald wants some yogurt!
