Phew! I thought it was just me! I have that same exact problem all the time (ask Nini) - it's so frustrating, and I feel your pain.

I'm glad you are here to hear about my trip, D! Your TR was one that really made me want to do the trip, because of your great photos of the new dumbo ride!

So it's not just me the photobucket doesn't work with!

Yah - that Dumbo ride was crazy, who would have ever thought it would be beautiful and magical? I was talking to my girls the other day about the Fantasyland expansion, and how WDW has opened the next phase. They were asking me if it was cool, and I had to remind them... Remember Dumbo? And how it went from "Meh to YAY"... Yup... That's the FLE. Super excited to be going back to check that out!

Yah - the edits don't ever work for me. And I feel awful about it, because I use them to block out my store name on my bags, so I don't get booted from The Dis, but my edits never work, so I just can't show those pictures. It's very frustrating for me. I have never tried contacting Photobucket to tell them that their editing software doesn't work anymore (it used to...), it seems after the latest update, it stopped working for me. Hopefully they will get it back soon. It's not the best editing software, but I like it because it's convenient.

Can't wait to hear more about your trip!

D~

Arrival Day

Ok, its about time we get to Walt Disney World! On Thursday I flew from NYC to Orlando. Caught the Magical Express from the airport and arrived at Pop Century at about 6:30pm. Check- in was fast. I got a room in the 60's section. Nice because my room was super close to the front/transportation. It was quite loud when I got to my room, though. There was a 'pool party' thing going on, with music and such. My room was under the dancers:


Spent a little time getting myself organized in my room and then headed to bus.

Bus to Downtown Disney arrived as I was walking up to the bus stop so I was off in a flash.
You got to love a place that has Disney music pipes throughout. Walked around, did a little shopping.

Loved this guy:

Walked all way over to West side. Stopped at Wolfegang puck for supper. Crab cakes delish, salad so-so.


It was time to head back to the resort to rest up! Had to wait for a bit for bus. It was still nosy around the pool when I got back but I had no problem getting to sleep.

Hi! DTD is neat, I wish I had more time to check it all out but that was a general theme in my time. Need more time!

Friday Morning, Animal Kingdom.

Woke up (too early for me) but just made it to AK at 8 for Magic Hour.




So first order of business was the safari. My camera was acting up so my photos suck, which Im so disappointed about. But lots of cool animals active in the morning, we saw lions and rhinos and everything in-between!




Saw these people by the hippos. I totally have to do a special safari tour next time!


Next order of business was breakfast. A quick bagel did the trick. Headed over to Its Not Easy Being a Bug. Totally scary! It's a frightening show!

I turned the corner and Doug and Russell were there! I couldn't resist I had to get a photo, even though it was about a 20min wait. I wasn`t sure about meeting characters at first but once I was there I found the characters really fun. We had a group hug and I asked Russell about his badges and Doug gave me a lick. It was goofy kids stuff, but everyone is a kid at Disney World so I shouldnt be embarrassed, right?





I started making my way towards Nemo, I was headed for the 11am show but had time. Right before crossing over to Dino land I saw Eeyore wandering around at the end of a path. I started chattting to the CM. I couldn't see a line or where the characters were. But when Eeyore came back from him break the CM told him to take me down. So Eeyore lead me down (and who can resist Eeyore?) to meet Pooh and Tigger.








After visiting with the 100 acre wood group I grabbed a fast pass for Everest and then watched Nemo. I don't know about Broadway quality but super fun, great costumes.

Everest was awesome! I really hadnt been on a roller coaster since I was a kid, I forgot how much I loved them. I rode it twice more (single person line was about as fast as the fast pass line, standby line was 30mins.)


I tried a turkey wing, which is way too much meat for one person!

I barely scratched the surface of AK, but I headed back to the resort at 3pm for a little rest and to get ready for MVSHP!

Joining in on the fun. I took a solo trip to Disney a few years ago and I definitely don't regret it for a minute. So far you seem to have an amazing time and I can't wait to read the rest.
