After lunch we did some shopping at Mouse Gear and then decided to head back to MK. We saw some friends on our way out so we stopped to say hi.





Once we got to MK we headed over to visit Roz and our friends at Monsters, Inc.



From there it was time to try and become a Galactic Hero again...I failed this time.

We were then off for another spin on the TTA.



We then walked over to Fantasyland so that we could check out the new construction. I am so excited to see this when it is done.



Have you met my boyfriend?



We stopped for ice cream which is something I never do at Disney. I have IBS so I have never even tried to get ice cream when we're there. It wasn't really ice cream weather but we stopped and if I remember correctly, we shared one.

Next up was Philharmagic. This is likely my fav attraction at MK. I just adore it.



Next we made our way over to the Haunted Mansion, but it was closed. Joe was really bummed about that.

I wanted to visit HoP so we went there instead.



We had an ADR at the Wave so we left and made our way over there. Joe and I really like it there. I remember that there was a game of some sorts on and all of the men kept running to the bar to see what the score was.

We called it a night after dinner and headed back to Pop. We stopped at Everything Pop though to do a bit of shopping before heading back to our room.

The weather was so great that we were actually able to stay out all stinkin' day, which is very rare for us. Yay!!!

The next morning we were headed to Kouzzina for breakfast. It's turned into a must do for us. I get the same thing every time we go...the waffle. It is amazing.











After breakfast we were headed to DHS for the day.





First stop was Voyage of the LIttle Mermaid. Love that show. We were seated in the front and got a bit wet so needless to say, I was cold. Who gets to say that they were cold at DIsney?

Next up was the Art of Animation















Next up was TSMM. I have never done well here. Joe always kicks my butt!





After Joe beat me at TSMM we headed over to meet Phineas and Ferb. Got side tracked along the way.





We decided to stop in and see Kermit and the gang.





The line to meet Phineas and Ferb was crazy so we decided that we'd be back later.

It was Pixar Parade time so we went to find seats.

I am enjoying all of your pictures! You have some good ones of the castle during Wishes. Love the pics of the Beauty and the Beast show, which is my personal favorite. You are helping me get excited for our trip in Sept.

Your wishes pictures turned out great! I'm really enjoying your close-up photography. (I'm always too lazy to carry my heavy/good camera in the parks!)

I think we were there right about when you were in February. I remember you posting that you were going to go (because, yes, I've been reading your trip reports for a long time, even though I rarely comment) and I think we were there some of the days you were. We stayed at Contemporary to celebrate both daughter's birthdays the first weekend in February (both have birthdays in Feb). I checked all of your crowd shots, but I didn't see any with us in them. (Wouldn't that be crazy??)

Thanks for sharing your trips!

Ok, so I was a wee bit behind. Sad to see your TR end...but you just went right into a new one!

February is a nice time to go. I have been twice in February and the temps are definitely a lot cooler. Course, both times for me it was a bit too cold...like multiple layers and gloves cold. But it is a whole lot easier to bundle up (one of those times we actually bought a huge blanket and wrapped it around dd in a stroller cause temps were below freezing at night and not a lot warmer during the day) than to brave the heat.

I really love your pictures! I always LOVE your pictures. Your Wishes ones are out of this world good! And speaking of Wishes.... Why is it that there is always ONE family every trip that is like that... just total disregard for all other guests. It is as though they feel like "well, we paid a lot to be here...so we get to do what ever we want"

I love the Goofy interaction..saying he was actually batman!!!

And... captain EO - It is odd..always a wait...never a "line". I always have skipped too. Recently though, when we went to DLR... we decided to wait (this time a group was waiting so it seemed more "real") It was an interesting show. I doubt I need to ever do it again... but at least now I have done it. Again..interesting show.

That's so funny that we were there at the ame time. It would be kinda awesome if you were in one of our pictures.

I hate carrying our XTI all day long so I normally just carry it at night.

How did you like the Contemporary?

So far the three trips we've taken in Feb haven't been too bad. There was one year that we had snow (the real stuff) at MK, but it was still awesome. I sort of like bundling up and hitting the parks.

One day I will get to see the Captain EO show.....

We were winding down our short 6 day trip and decided that we had to go to Pizza Planet, which I normally avoid, to get the mocha cupcake. I am not a chocolate fan but this thing is awesome. I didn't even get a picture of it!

After we ate, we headed back over to see if we could meet Phineas and Ferb. The line was stupid long in Sept 2011 so we didn't get a chance to meet them or get pictures. This time, I was determined to wait.

Yay! The line wasn't all that bad!







I was starting to get sick so we headed to the Writer's Shop to see if they sold cough drops. Nope, they didn't, but the nice CM at the counter had some with her, so she kindly gave me one. Only at Disney.......

I had a hot tea and we sat in the Writer's Shop for a bit. I am so glad that we "found" that place. We have been walking by it for 15 years and finally, a couple of years ago, we went inside. I just love it in there. So cozy.



We had a few hours before our adr at Sci Fi so we headed back to the front of the park.



GMR was calling our name, so we headed over.












We did some people watching and I took a few pictures before moving on.









We then rode Star Tours a few times...I think maybe 3 or 4 before it was time for Sci Fi.

While the food isn't all that great, we love the atmosphere.









I have no idea what we ate at Sci Fi that night.... boooo..........

We had a late ADR so by the time dinner was over, it was time for the park to close. Since it was out last night, we strolled slowly to the park exit.









We called it a night and went back to POP to pack.

The next morning we got up and gathered all of our stuff. We decided to head to MK since they had morning EMH. Believe it or not, I didn't take any pictures.

We had a noon flight so we literally ran into the park and did as many things as possible before it was time to head out. We always, always, end our trip with Mickey's Philharmagic. We saw the show and then headed toward the gate, but not before stopping at the bakery.

Tradition is that I get a caramel apple with nuts and Joe gets fudge that we bring home. We normally eat it while we are unwinding that evening and talk about our trip.

Well, we got carried away in the candy shop and were cutting it super close to our deadline to be out of the park by 10:15. Yikes, the monorals were running super duper late that morning and we were still waiting for one at 10:45.

Honestly, I didn't think we'd make our flight. We were suppose to return the car with a full tank but we ended up paying them an "arm and leg" instead because had we gone to get gas, we would have missed our flight.

Once we got to the airport, we hightailed it as fast as possible to the gate. They were boarding when we got there.

All in all, it was a great trip. With the weather the way it was, we packed as much, if not more, in 6 days than we do when we go for 11.

I'll close here with a few PP pics. Thanks for reading.

It was our first time staying there, and I had wanted to try it for a long time - just more money than we usually want to spend! We were in the garden wing, because a good price came up. I enjoyed it, but my hubby was disappointed to not be in the main building. I guess he didn't see the convenience of it, being so far away. I still thought it was on the monorail and right by Magic Kingdom, so it worked for me!

Oh no! Almost missing your flight?! I must admit though... that same thing has happened to us. We lingered a bit too long.. and we ended up running through the airport. Luckily, our flight had been delayed... but had it not

Thanks so much for sharing your trip! I always love reading you reports and seeing your pictures!!!
