Single Digit Dance!!! :

I was so super excited yesterday at work that I brought attention to myself. Thankfully I had this weekend off, and yesterday I was just glad no more work until Monday so couldn't help but to do a jig down the hall Unfortunately after expressing my delight that my vacation was so close and of course sharing where I was going, had my coworker looking at me like I had three heads. She has been to the World once with her hubby and children nine years ago, but just kept staring at me with mouth wide open, shocked at my excitement. Oh well, some people just don't understand...

I'll be back with my MK plans this evening, heading to church shortly. Hope you all have a fabulous day!

Woo hoo for single digits!

My DSis is the only one who comes close to understanding my love for WDW. That's why I'm glad I can come here where we all get it!

Single digits sounds great. Most people I know do not get my love for Disney either and that includes Graham. Still, I think it makes him happy to see me happy so he just goes along with whatever I plan.

I asked him yesterday how he feels about spending my birthday on the Magic and he is OK with this if I can make it work budget-wise. I am going to have to crunch some numbers.

I wondered why he doesn't go in the parks much. That's true love

Sounds fabulous. Have you found one that will work? For this year or next year?

Regardless if they think AK is worth two days or not, MK is definitely getting two days. There's just too much I know they'll like and no reason to miss anything since we have enough time.

Jungle Cruise - I have only done this once, and it was a riot! There is a giant spider in a cage near the front of the line, and I had read that if you clap at it it will jump at you. Well, mom and I were clapping and clapping and clapping and clapping, and finally took a rest because our hands hurt, and then started clapping again louder. We thought maybe it was broken. When all of a sudden it LUNGED at us!!! We both shrieked and started laughing. It was too funny. Please try this with some unsuspecting victims. The ride is also a good laugh.

Pirates - an absolute must. Hopefully it will not be broken down. In my last three trips it has been broken at some point each time and I had to go back for it.

Splash Mountain - M remembers being terrified of the drop, but hopefully she'll be able to try it again. I never like getting wet, and of course it always happens...

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad - not one of my favorites, it's just too jerky, but it's still fun. I know everyone else will enjoy it.

The Haunted Mansion - This one creeps me out to no end, it's just so well done. R & M must experience it.

Peter Pan - my absolute favorite ride, so a definite must. Even with the low crowds I'm sure I'll have to get us FPs for this one.

Mickey's PhilharMagic - A wonderful show that I know they'll enjoy. And a nice respite from walking

Winnie the Pooh - This one tends to have long lines as well, so we'll see, but I know M will love it.

Mad Tea Party - I might have to sneak away from the group for this one, I just love it. Get some kind of giddy euphoria from all the spinning Mom will NOT go on this again. Last time she had had two icecreams within an hour and did not feel well mid ride. Thankfully nothing happened.

Dumbo - R has specifically requested this so it's on the list. I'm hoping with two the lines will not be so bad. Will they both be open for our trip? I'm not sure about that. I'm sure he's remembering some good times from childhood, so we will acquiesce to his wishes.

Space Mountain - oh yeah, another definite must. I'm so glad they changed the lighting recently. I had rode it once where you could pretty much see everything. That took away from the magic big time.

Buzz Lightyear - After TSM I'll be curious what R & M think of this, but it's always a good time.

Stitch's Great Escape - I loved the previous ride, Alien Encounter I think it was called, and even though it's a much tamer version I still thoroughly enjoy this one. Great fun all around. M is the only one of us who never did either, so I'm curious what she'll think of it.

last but not least

Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor - Have only done this once before as well, and laughed until my stomach hurt. We had some perfect 'players'. The audience really makes this show. I know R & M will really enjoy it.

I know we'll definitely be staying for the Main Street Electrical Parade and Wishes Nighttime Spectacular one if not both nights.

So what are your favorite eating places in MK? We'll be hitting Pecos Bills but other than that I'm not sure.

Sounds like you have everything covered!

Years ago we enjoyed the Columbia House, but for the past 10 years the only thing we've eaten in the MK has been:


Yummmmm! However, they do cheat now and the swirl is hollow!

The other is I am so so so hoping that DCA F&W comes back in 2013. If so I want to plan my Aulabi dates around that. If it dies come back I plan on spending a lot of time out there waiting in line for the celebrity demos.

We really like Columbia Harbor House for the fish & chips and chowda. Cosmic Rays is another fave, but not sure what they have in your eating plan.

Yay for single digits!

Yummy!!!

I had finally decided to try one last year, just the icecream not the float, and I accidentally asked for vanilla. Didn't really look at the menu or know what I wanted. But when the CM handed it to me I realized I made a mistake and asked if I could also buy the pineapple. She gave me a second cone for free. I love that pixie dust The pineapple icecream was magnificent!

Shame on them for skimping!

Disney loves to make money, so I'd think for certain they'd bring it back. Just wouldn't make sense not to in my opinion.

Not snooty at all. I can't wait to see for myself, really looking forward to my DL trip. I know we'll loose M to the shops, she's going to be overwhelmed by everything.

Just looked at Cosmic Rays menu, and I think that's something R & M would really enjoy. Fish and Chips! One of my favorites! I can't believe I've never given Columbia Harbor House a look. Lots of options for everybody.

We rarely go to MK, we just don't think it is worth it, but when we go with people who have not been we take them... Hope you have a great time!
