I don't think it's crazy at all not to watch videos of things you want to experience first hand. I "refuse" to watch any video of opening ceremony because I want to see it for the first time in person!

14. Mad Tea Party or as Lilian calls them the spinning cups or tea cups

This was one of the first rides I showed to Lilian on YouTube when talking about our trip. She asks almost daily to see the video of the spinning cups or tea cups (depending on how she asks). This will be another first for all of us!!

Pictures (first from AllEars, second is from Boston Globe’s website):



Photography Note: I hope to get some fun pictures of the blurred background while on the ride!!

Here is the video Lilian asks for frequently, Mad Tea Party

Who likes this ride? Anyone not like it? In addition to the ride, I hope we have luck seeing Alice and the Mad Hatter.
I love Mad Tea Party...as long as you don't spin me too fast.

I have noticed that if you are there for rope drop and head straight to the teacups that Alice and the Mad Hatter are often by the ride for photos or riding the ride with a child or two.

When you get an opportunity to be able to go to more than MK--I cannot wait to see your reaction!! I get dizzy spinning Lilian in the lake and around the house sometimes too. We'll see how it goes!

I agree Hope! It definitely is a classic, along with IASWAA IMO. I hope the panning shots come out for both of us!!

Thanks Kathy! We will be in MK early on Tuesday, so hopefully we will catch her then! (I agree about not spinning too fast )

Next up…

12. New Shows: FOTLK, FN, Beauty and the Beast and VOTLM


Hard to believe, but I have not seen any of these shows listed above. On our last trip, we only saw Indiana Jones and LMA. We have a lot of ground to make up!

Pictures I have generously pulled from AllEars (I cannot wait to have pictures of my own!!!):



In the mood to take an armchair tour of the shows at Disney, here are four videos to take you merrily on your way:

Beauty and the Beast
Finding Nemo
Festival of the Lion King
Voyage of the Little Mermaid

Again, I have not watched these as I rather experience the shows in person. I do not think anything in these will bother Lilian, so I have not previewed them with her either. I think she will love them though!! I am really looking for experiencing them myself but also seeing her reaction to them.
What shows are on your not-to-be missed list? If you could only watch ONE show ever again, which would you choose (ones not listed above count too)?

Daily Itinerary Card, September 14th

Whew, now that I am all caught up on my countdown, I am going to post the next three Daily Itinerary Cards. I am going to go ahead and post them separately, to hopefully allow for easier feedback.

Next up is Lilian’s birthday!! It is probably our busiest day of the whole week. Good thing we have a rest day the following day.



Thoughts? I hope we are able to finish FL on Saturday, but if we do not than we can always begin our day there. Of course, if there are any favorites we have to do than those will go into the touring plans too.

What is your favorite treat from the Main Street Bakery?

Wednesday is our relaxed day, to recover from the night before. I went ahead and created an itinerary card anyways, just so I have one for every day.



I did not put any plans for our mommy/daughter time. I want to keep that open as I mentioned before but I am leaning towards going to MK. It will depend on how Lilian is fairing by today.

Thoughts??
Pretty simple day but I think it will be great!!

I thought it was funny that I've seen all of the shows you are looking forward to and I haven't seen the shows you've already seen (LMA and Indiana Jones.) Too bad we can't combine our memories

Onto Thursday of our birthday celebration, this is the day we are going to go to AK. We start the day off with breakfast with Donald, Daisy, Mickey and Minnie.



What do you think about our AK day? I am bypassing the train and conservation station this trip. I hope we can make it to see both FOTLK and FN but that will depend on how we are all doing (since AK can feel so much hotter than any other park!!).
