DECEMBER 8, 2011
Day 4, Part 4 In Which We Venture To Uncharted Territory


Even though my camera was broken and we were going to have to leave Disney to buy a new one (an expense I was *not* expecting on this trip... yeeeouch), the Livin It Up had to continue.

The one thing you need to know about my mom and I is that the Livin It Up will never cease for us. One of our favorite sayings is "If I don't laugh, I'll cry." Meaning: When things go wrong you just have to laugh about it because who cares. In the grand scheme of things, almost nothing is really that big a deal, so you really shouldn't waste your time being sad, upset, or frustrated.

Disappointing candlelight processionals and broken cameras are really no match for us. We laugh in the face of these things and just carry on Livin It Up!

I find one of the best ways to Live It Up is to eat cupcakes. I was really hoping that one of my BELOVED Safari cupcakes would finally be available! I had waited 18 months to sink my teeth into another one and I just could not wait any longer.

Back at Kusafiri Bakery, I was not denied!



YUM! The cupcake was EVEN BETTER than it was in 2010! The pieces of chocolate were thicker, whereas before they were more like giant chocolate shavings. Now they're just big ol' honkin pieces of DELICIOUS chocolate stuck right there in your cupcake. Oh, it was heaven!

Just for comparison, this is what the Safari Cupcake I got in 2010 looked like:



Oh how I love when Disney makes things even MORE magical!

Btw, when I got this cupcake in 2010 it was called the Zebra Cupcake. Which made sense. But then on this trip it was called the Safari Cupcake. HOWEVER, yesterday, my friend Jess got the cupcake and it's called the Zebra Cupcake again! Make up your mind, Disney! And also: BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL MONORAIL VOICE GUY aka THE LOVE OF MY LIFE!

Sigh.

I ate about half of the cupcake, and put the rest away for later cause it was time to head back over to Dinoland for Finding Nemo: The Musical!

I don't have many notes or pictures, so forgive me as I breeze through the rest of our time at AK...

Nemo was incredible, as per usual. Sadly, my mom left her sunglasses in there, which she realized once we were pretty far away. So we ventured back to the theatre where they were prepping for the next show. A bunch of CMs helped us, but alas, the sunglasses were gone. Sheesh, we were not doing too well with personal items today!

Even with my broken camera and the sun in my mom's eyes, the Livin It Up couldnot be stopped. Again, the best way to Live It Up was eating, so we got a Turkey Leg!

Turkey Legs are one of those things that after I eat them I am just not thrilled with myself. They do not make you feel good. Actually, halfway through, most of the time I'm like "Am I seriously ripping meat off this giant bone? With my teeth? Smearing grease across my face? In public?"

There's just no way to do it without looking like a caveman.

But they're delicious! So every once in awhile, I Live It Up caveman style. Ooh, that rhymed!! I should make up a rap. AAAAAALLLL YOUUUUU sucka MCs ain't got nothin' on me.... you know what? Nevermind.

It was nearing time for Mickey's Jammin' Jingle Jungle Parade, which is the same as Mickey's Plain Old Jammin' Jungle Parade, just with some decorations and a more festive soundtrack. I really enjoyed the normal parade the last time we saw it (2006), so I definitely knew we had to catch the holiday version.

We grabbed some delicious cinnamon glazed pecans (YUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUM) from a snack cart in Harambe and sat down along the bridge.

The parade was a lot of fun, but like I said, not very different from the usual one, so you aren't missing much if you don't get to see it during the holidays. However, it was really cute. My favorite Holiday addition was Naughty and Nice lists with certain characters names on them. Adorable!


Here is the one cell phone pic I took. Mickey waving at me! Aww.

Precious. It was so annoying not having my camera for this, usually I take a ton of pictures during parades.

There was one last Festival of the Lion King for that day that we had to rush over to Camp Minnie Mickey for. We made it just in time! The rushing was worth it because as all of you know, that show is mind blowingly, overwhelmingly incredible! My mom and I ALWAYS cry. I actually prefer it to the Broadway version of the Lion King, even. It's just that good!

After FOTLK, the park was about to close and so we headed out and back to Pop.

Ok so if you don't care to hear about the whole LEAVING DISNEY PROPERTY ordeal of doom, just skip over this. I'm including it just in case people are curious about the whole fright enducing process, but I don't mind if you skip it! At the bottom of this update, there will be food pictures, so I understand if you would like to skip all the boring non-Disney details!

I went up to the concierge and asked (just in case) if they sold digital cameras anywhere on property. The CM said no. I think this is a missed opportunity. They should really sell big obnoxious Mickey head shaped cameras. I would buy one. Gimmicky cameras are awesome. I mean, I know I'm not the only one who had a Spice Girls polaroid camera. Oh, the 90's!

I asked the CM to please direct me to the nearest Target since my friend Kara (MarieTheCat24) was helping me out and said she found some cheap but decent cameras on their website (Thanks again, Kara!) The CM was very sweet and helpful, giving me a map and the address. She also told me the estimated cab fare and I was right, it was $20 each way.

From reading the DIS all these years I knew Mears was the cab company to call and had written down their number, so I called them and they said a cab would be there very soon. They texted about a minute after I hung up with them saying that they had contacted dispatch and a cab was on its way. The cab arrived insanely fast, it was honestly less than 5 minutes. Our cab driver asked which Target we wanted to go to and I gave him the specific address b/c I didn't want him to trick us and act like a further away Target was the nearest one (drivers in NYC try to drive you out of your way for more money sometimes). He was very polite and even turned down his music for us, but we told him we didn't mind the music and it was fine if he played it..

I posted on Twitter:
Cab driver had crazy music on and he turned it off and we were all like hey its cool, we're weird too.

When we left Disney Property, I felt sick. The Target is in that area of Orlando that is super touristy and filled with signs that have giant oranges and unauthorized paintings of Mickey on them and there are too many fast food restaurants and chain hotels and I just hate it. I mean, it's fine... it's normal for a tourist area. It's not like it's terrible, it's just not anywhere I want to be. Disney is so pristine that you really forget the real world is a couple of miles away. I was annoyed and just wanted to get the whole thing over with.

I posted on Twitter:
I absolutely hate leaving Disney Property. Loathe. Abhor.

We arrived at Target and my mom and I split up. I went straight to the camera section and she went to look for some new sunglasses.

It took me less than 5 minutes to choose one, a Canon Powershot A1200. I wasn't looking for a perfect new camera, obviously I didn't have time to research, I just wanted something good yet not too expensive to hold me over for the rest of our trip.

I paid for it at the electronics counter and then went to find my mom in the Women's Accessories area. She had found some cute sunglasses for only $10... gotta love Target!

We then went to the drink aisle to get a pack of water, a pack of Coca Cola, and some Vitamin Water, so that we didn't have to buy them at the parks. We were going to get snacks but then I realized that eating snacks from Target would fill us up and leave less room for Disney snacks, so we quickly squashed that idea. It's allll about the Disney food, folks.

I called Mears again to get a cab back to Pop and we went to check out. Once again they texted me right away after to tell me dispatch had contacted a driver who was on his way. It took about 5-10 minutes for the cab to arrive. It was another nice guy who immediately got out of the cab, opened the doors, and took our bags out of our cart and put them into the car.

As we arrived back on Disney Property I screamed "YAAAY!!" and clapped and did a little dance. I can't even tell you what a relief it was to be back.

I posted on Twitter:
Just got back to Disney World. Thank God. I can't stand being out of the bubble. Reality has no place in my life.

Overall our experience with Mears raised no complaints from me. I've heard mixed reviews in the past but both drivers arrived within minutes and were polite and helpful. I was annoyed to begin with that my camera had broken and we had to leave Disney, so it would have been easy to tick me off, but there were no problems.

When we arrived back at Pop I almost kissed the ground. DISNEY, I'LL NEVER LEAVE YOU AGAIN!

We briefly went back to the room to drop off our stuff. I got my new camera out and tested a bit before we headed back out to the busses. We were hungry for one of our FAVORITE Disney restaurants:


WOLFGANG PUCK EXPRESS!!!!!!


Ever since I ate here on a whim during my 2008 solo trip, it has been a must do. You know, one of those must dos that we really WANT to do! B/c, a la Stacey, not all must dos are things you really WANT to do. Or something.

The point is: We always want to eat at Wolfgang Puck Express. I introduced it to my mom during my 20th birthday trip in 2010 and she also fell head over heels in love. She brings it up to me often and we always talk about how much we wish we could eat there all the time.

This restaurant is categorized by Disney as counter service, but it is table service quality. Actually, it's better than some of the table service restaurants. If you haven't tried it, OH MY GOD, GO!



We ordered our usual: Four Cheese Pesto Pizza with a side of Macaroni & Cheese and split both.




They have changed this dish a bit and increased the size. This a side, but it is enough for one person's whole meal.

My mom was in heaven at this point! I think this was one of her favorite moments of the trip. It was such a relief to be back at Disney after the little bump in the road we had, eating one of our favorite meals. We took some of the pizza back to Pop like always, we can never finish it because it's so huge. Honestly... if you have never tried this place... your next trip is the time!

After this, we started acting really silly. We were so tired and stuffed. My mom was being especially hilarious. She kept telling me to take her picture in front of various stores. She would get all giddy and giggly and pose like an overexcited child about to meet Mickey. I wish I could show you the pics, but she would kill me. It was too funny. I was cracking up. I love that I have a mom who can get silly like this and pose for stupid pictures and crack up laughing at nothing and basically just act like a moron with me.

My mom decided she wanted Ghiradelli for dessert. I was too stuffed but she got a chocolate cone, her favorite. She said it was delicious, as usual. I definitely have to try something here next time. I was never crazy about it, but lately getting a bar of Ghiradelli chocolate has become a thing for me. It's my new vice. Like any time I'm really tired and still have a long day ahead of me I go get one and OH GOD IT JUST MAKES ME FEEL SO MUCH BETTER!

After wandering around for awhile, we headed back to Pop Century and actually got to bed at a reasonable time. I didn't even watch that many loops of Stacey before I went to sleep, I think it was only about 14 times, so you can tell I was tired!

Up next: Minnie Mouse freaks out!

I love your Livin' It Up life philosophy, it's so simple, and yet, so easy to forget to do sometimes!

OMG that cupcake looks so good! I'm glad it's a Zebra cupcake again, hello, it's striped like a zebra, why would they change it to a Safari cupcake? I love Disney, but sometimes they like to mess with perfection...don't change ANYTHING Disney, you're perfect, just the way you are! I wish we had a chance to go to Animal Kingdom when I was just there (LAST WEEK! Can you believe I was just in Disney last week? Ughh, where does the time go??? I still have not adjusted back to real life. Sure I'm going through the motions, but in my mind, I'm still in Disney. )

I'm so glad you like turkey legs too! I have to eat one in DHS on every trip. I don't know why DHS, but I just have to. You're right though...they don't make you feel very good about yourself!

I hate leaving Disney property too! And we always seem to, at least once, on each trip, it's so annoying! I even told my DH on this past trip that he needed to hurry up because I couldn't stand being outside of the Disney bubble and he looked at me like I'm crazy...only DISers understand I guess! Glad you got a camera and your mom found sunglasses!

I cannot believe I haven't been to WPE yet. If I don't go on my next trip, I should ban myself from Disney for a year or something, there's just no excuse!

Your mom sounds like so much fun, I love that you guys can take trips together and have a great time! I hope I have a little girl someday so I can take her to Disney for every single important event in her life and act crazy with!

I'm glad that your departure from the Disney bubble wasn't too long!! That's purposely why I don't want to rent a car while at Disney, I don't want to be bothered with such real-world concepts as driving!!

WPE looks great! It really is a fantastic CS restaurant!!

Your safari cupcake just looks delicious! I've had my eye on one of those babies for like a year now hahaha.

I feel like there is just no graceful way to eat something with the word 'leg' in the title.

I just did an evil sounding laugh (it just came out... I couldn't stop it) after reading your Mean Girls reference haha. "OHH KEVIN G!!!"

It really sucks that you had to leave Disney property. I'm sorry.

A wedding at ToT would be awesome. I have dreams of my bridal party all decked out in our wedding garb having a whole elevator to ourself!! I became fb friends with the awesome bellhop from my last trip and he has SO MANY pics of him and the fellow CMs with pictures of almost all of them or just 2 of them riding it. Can you imagine riding it all you want if we worked there? Although...I don't know if I would be a good CM there. I'm too happy, I'm not good at NOT smiling and giving off the eerie vibes they give!

Yum, yum, yum...that cupcake looks SO GOOD! I can't believe I have never tried one of the ones from AK. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?! I need to go there AND Wolfgang Puck Express. Guess I'll need to book another Disney trip. Oh darn.

I veered off-property my first trip...tourist-y tacky is no bueno. Disney does it right!! Glad the slight deviation was lickety-split.

Sorry to hear about your camera. That must have been scary leaving Disney property. We only do that when it's time to leave and that's scary and sad. At least you knew you were only making a quick leave.

Yum the cupcake looks good! I've never seen them there before. And, yes the new monorail guy is no good. I was there in the beginning of May and it's definitely not the same. Why do they randomly change these things? The people movers and now this? I don't get it!

Looking forward to the next update! I always enjoy your reports. What a great Livin it Up attitude that you have! Go you!

Thank you! Yes, it is hard to employ the Livin It Up philosophy at times, but you just have to keep reminding yourself!

Well, they sell it right by the safari, so I could understand why they would call it that, but it obviously looks more like a zebra! haha. SO JEALOUS YOU WERE THERE LAST WEEK!!!!!!!!! Sigh. I miss it so much!

We used to stay off property and now that I'm so engrossed in the Disney bubble I hate leaving! Even like seeing normal street signs just annoys me.

DEFINITELY go to WPE next time. If you hate it, I will personally refund you. LOL. But seriously, it's that good.

Aww. Yeah, one day when I am ready for kids (which will be many years) I am going to take them to Disney all the time. I seriously think about that constantly. I can not wait to experience the magic through their eyes.

It was less than an hour! Out and back in as quickly as possible!

Yep, it's definitely my favorite CS and one of my faves overall.

Why thank you!

Hey, don't knock the Spice Girls camera. I got some good shots of my friends and I wearing frosted lipstick and belly shirts that had Chinese characters on them. We looked awesome!

YES!!! Go to Wolfgang Puck's ASAP! You will not regret it.

It's sooo yummy! Honestly it rivals the red velvet one at Starring Roles. SO GOOD!

hahaha you are right about that leg thing!

LOL I'm glad you got that. "I don't play it like Shaggy, he'll know it was me!" oh man that is one of the BEST scenes in cinema history.

Yes, a ToT wedding is my absolute dream. I always wondered where exactly in Disney I would want to get married and I think I have now decided it has to be ToT! That's so funny that you're FB friends with that bell hop, I love it. I want to work there SO bad!

haha YES you absolutely should!! And if you do... bring me with you!!!!!!!!

Yeah, it was lame having to leave but it was an awesome feeling when we drove back through the pearly gates!

It's delicious! And I just can't believe they changed my beloved Monorail Voice Guy. I mean, what next, are they going to replace Cinderella Castle?!?

Thank you so much!

I agree that Living It Up is the best way to go for sure. I try to have the same philosophy, because everything else just isn't worth it, you know?

Cupcake....on my list.....along with every other cupcake on WDW's menus.

WPE is the food of life....along with cupcakes.

I'm upset too. I heard part of it but shut it off after about 8 seconds. I just am pretending it didn't happen. Sigh.

When they replace Stacey I will stay in bed for a week. Seriously. I can't even imagine it without her!

Absolutely!

Haha, me too. I've tried a lot of the WDW cupcakes but I have a really long list still to try. I'm going to have to get at least 15 a day on the next trip.

Long time lurker on your trip reports but I can't help myself anymore. I am an O.C. fanatic and love the references in this trip report and your last one! I make life decisions based on that show. Like which resort to stay at in Disney. My mom and I had it down to either Port Orleans Riverside or the French Quarter. In my little mind: Riverside! That's a town Julie is from on the O.C.! So I pick that one! Also I only tried tilapia because Sandy said he loved it on an episode. So again in my little mind: Tilapia! Sandy Cohen loves Tilapia! Okay I'll try it!! And I ended up loving it. I still watch that show an embarrassing amount. Like I'm currently on yet another marathon of the first season. I just can't get enough.

Anyway, your trip report is awesome so far and I love your writing style!

So I pick that one! Also I only tried tilapia because Sandy said he loved it on an episode. So again in my little mind: Tilapia! Sandy Cohen loves Tilapia! Okay I'll try it!! And I ended up loving it. I still watch that show an embarrassing amount. Like I'm currently on yet another marathon of the first season. I just can't get enough.

Anyway, your trip report is awesome so far and I love your writing style!
Yay for lurkers coming out!! This is your official welcome to the party!

Always very happy to have more OC fans on this crazy train. You sound really obsessed which is good. I am going to watch the series over the summer and shake and cry the entire time.

Thanks so much! Glad you are enjoying!

HAHA okay so I tried a turkey leg for the first time in December, and you pretty much summed up my feelings about eating it. It was good, and I went straight Henry the Eighth on that thing, but I hated myself afterwards!

UGH leaving Disney property...no thank you. I totally know what you mean about "the bubble."

But yay for getting your new camera, and new sunglasses for your mom, and making it back to Disney property quickly!!

I've never had WPE, but I really need to try it! It sounds delicious!

Yeah they were called Zebra Cupcakes! That's so weird that they had a different name when you were there. YUM that thing was so delicious!

Ugh don't even remind me about the monorail voice guy. I literally almost cried.

I have NEVER eaten a turkey leg. Is that weird?

I COMPLETELY understand how you feel leaving Disney property. I would just rather not live in the real world.

I always get the same exact thing as you at WPE because of your old trip report. Now I'm OBSESSED. That mac and cheese just keeps getting better and better.
