All yours now, Dana. I don't have any more pics of the rest of the TR.


I think we hit almost every candy stop, actually. We did quite a bit of them while you were looking at that purse Did you wind up buying it, or should I check your TR?

But yeah, I was sorry we had that Maybe next time

Thanks for posting your pics! They're really good!

Great update!!! I cannot wait to ride TSM, I love that whole area, and I can't wait to actually go through the whole line and see everything, it looks adorable!

Sci Fi looks good...still not sure if I'm gonna keep that ADR or not!

Looks like another fun night at MK! I can't wait to try LTT!

Okay, I wanted to get caught up (I skipped some of the chatter) so I can then go back and update my TR. Now I am slightly exhausted...you guys sure did a lot in these first days.

All of your pictures are really great! I love all the pics with Pooh and Eeyore--two of my favorites.

Great updates! Yay for eating around the world at F&W. I really wished we were able to try more things, two little kids got in the way though.

The pictures of Pooh and Eeyore are so cute. Looks like they were having such a good time!

You are hitting all the best rides. Glad to hear you liked Soarin'. TSM is just the best! I can't wait to ride RnRC with DH on our solo trip. Oh, and I totally agree about Illuminations, not my favorite at all.

I love Pixar Place, too It's just so cute!

Honestly, I think you guys should keep it. Even if you decide on the day not to go, you can just call dining or go to the podium and tell them that you're canceling. They do take walk-ups, though. I tried to cancel my Plaza ADR and the girl at the podium said not to worry about it, since there was no credit card guarantee and they take walk-ups.

I loved Liberty Tree! I went there again the next day

Yeah, we did I kind of slowed down a bit the next couple of days, though, when I was (mostly) on my own.

I really love the pics of Pooh and Eeyore. They make me smile

Hey, that happens My sister's currently mad at me for showing my niece pictures of BBB and the castle and the Christmas parade on Youtube. Jade's now bugging her every day about if they can go to Disney yet.

They were having a good time! Even when Pooh got eaten by a statue!

I did like Soarin', yeah. I don't think it was as awesome as everyone says, but it was really cool. TSMM is just so much fun I love the mini-competitions that happen with that ride. You guys will love RnRC The start is the best part! Don't get me wrong, I like Illuminations, I just prefer Wishes.

Wednesday, October 27, 2010 - Magic Kingdom

I have no notes whatsoever for this day. I'm not sure why I stopped taking notes on my trip, so I'm making a point to make sure I bring a notebook and take good notes when I go to DLR in June. Plus, it'll be my first trip, so I really have no idea what I'm doing there

Anyway!

I think I slept in this day. The original plan was to go to DAK in the morning and hit up a couple of rides there before going to MK, but I decided not to. I think I could have saved the money I spent upgrading to a park hopper, to be perfectly honest. I'll have to keep that in mind for next year.



I decided that since I was on my own, I was going to focus on doing a character hunt, as I'd been ordered by my mom to collect as many autographs as possible for my niece. My character pics are all on Photopass, though. I ordered the CD last night, so I should get it sometime next week. Or hopefully sooner.

Anyway, I know I met Donald before heading here for lunch:



Back to Liberty Tree I know I'd just been there the night before, but the menu's different at lunch!





I checked in a little early and was seated almost immediately (that was apparently the theme for just about every ADR I had).





I'd promised myself I'd try the pot roast, but when I got there and read the menu, I found out that there are mushrooms in it. I HATE mushrooms. HATE. So I got the cheeseburger instead, since the only other thing I would have wanted was the turkey plate, and I'd just had turkey the night before.





Sprite!



The burger was good, but a typical burger. Nothing spectacular.

Now, the real reason I wanted to come for lunch?



Ooey gooey toffee cake! I'd wanted to try this for a long time, and tried to make it at home, but it didn't come out right. Maybe it was the lack of ice cream and caramel sauce. Anyway, I loved that

After lunch, I headed into Adventureland, judging by my photos. I don't think I went on many rides. I have no notes and my brain is currently not operating correctly, so I may have, but I may not have. I think I spent more time walking around and looking at things and trying to meet the characters on this day.



I apparently wandered into Fantasyland next See why I need to take better notes?









Because I was on a character hunt, any time I saw a character attendant, I got in line.



Not for those guys, though.



Honestly, I think Peter Pan's kinda creepy.

I spoke to the character attendant and asked her who else was going to be in Fantasyland, and she told me that the Fairy Godmother was going to be out in a few minutes by the castle, and then Mary Poppins a little bit after that, near the carousel. So I went to wait for the Fairy Godmother.

It was a gorgeous day.



Just as I was about to get up and leave, she came out!



After seeing her, I went over to the carousel to wait for Mary Poppins. I kept an eye out for her and eventually saw her parasol come bobbing by.



I asked if she was going to be signing and she said yes, and asked me to walk with her, so I told her I was waiting for her and she laughed.



She signed it with Jade's name, which was nice



I also took a picture on my cell phone and sent it to Jen, Joni (I think?), and my mom, since Mary Poppins is my mom's favorite Disney movie.

After seeing her, I cut back over to the castle and down the path to Tomorrowland. I wanted to see if the Tangled characters were out, but I'd missed their cutoff AGAIN.



Instead, I stopped at Enchanted Grove for one of these:



I really liked it, although I would've preferred a smaller cup.

As I worked on drinking it, I made my way through Tomorrowland.









And somehow back to Main Street? Apparently, I was going in circles. I did know there were characters there, though, so that's probably why.

The pics for the first two are on Photopass, but I saw Daisy and Pluto, then went to see Pinnochio.



After Pinnochio, I made my way through the air conditioned shops back up to Tomorrowland.





If I'd had the money, I so would have bought those. The only time I like Precious Moments is when it's Disney.

I apparently decided to hit up the Laugh Floor, since it was air conditioned.





After that, I did the TTA.





One of the things I like about the TTA is the photo opportunities it gives you.

After the TTA, I walked BACK to Main Street for some reason. I don't know what I was thinking.









I guess I wanted to take a picture of this for my dad:



I wandered over to Adventureland and went on Pirates. I also met Goofy while I was in line, but that's a Photopass pic.







After Pirates, I hopped on the train over to Toontown.





And then I walked through there back to Fantasyland.







The Sword In The Stone is one of my favorite Disney movies!

I headed down into Liberty Square for some dinner.





I got chicken nuggets and fries with the apple tart for dessert.



I sat upstairs and, as always, it was empty.







My view.



That came out kind of cute.

After dinner, I went on Haunted Mansion again.

After that, I went back to Pop. I was tired and just wanted to relax, so I wound up back at the hotel fairly early. I'd also done some shopping on this day, but I don't remember in what order. This is all the stuff I wound up taking home with me, plus an extra popcorn bucket that I found:



The Grumpy and Beatles mugs were for my dad, the Pooh for me, the villains for my friend Cherry. The votive holders were on sale for $7, and the lantern was on sale for $10. The Piglet and small metal candle holder were for my friend Molly.

I spent the rest of the evening like this:



Watching this:



And that was my day

I love the fact that you took the Tron pictures. I can't wait for that movie to come out.

I also love going upstairs at Columbia Harbour House, because no one ever goes up there. It's a lot more peaceful.

Was that Criminal Minds you were watching at the end of the day? Love that show!

I can't wait for it, either, although, to be perfectly honest, I'm more excited about Garrett Hedlund in skintight vinyl in 3D than anything else... He's really a good actor, but he's also really really cute (he's the guy playing the son, if you don't know who I'm talking about)

I love sitting up there. I can't tell you how many times I went to CHH to clean the bathrooms and saw no one sitting upstairs. A lot of people don't know you can go up there

And yes, I was watching Criminal Minds. I rarely watch it unless I happen to catch it, so I'd watch that and Without A Trace while I was getting ready for bed whenever I was in the hotel. It's a good show!
