Friday October 26th
Started out with a traditional yummy camping breakfast before we headed to the Magic Kingdom. First stop: the town fire hall for my firefighter hubby. Not sure why all firemen have a fascination we going there, but they do. Lol. After a train ride we saw that Splash Mountain was down but we grabbed fast passes in case it came back up, went over to ride Pirates of the Carribean and tour a bit. Had a delicious lunch at Pecos Bill. We'd never ate here before and loved the toppings bar for the burgers!!! Went back to ride Big Thunder Mountain and do the meet and greet with Jessie and Woody. Splash was open again yay. Or maybe not so yay. Myself and oldest dd had never been on before so we rode together. Had a blast. Even 'Gangnam styled' the attraction photo. And then.... The ride malfunctioned. We were stuck on the ride for about 25 mins before they got us all off and escorted us from the ride. I have to say it was a total first for us. Lol.
We decided since Hurricane Sandy was blowing pretty good to head back to the trailer to double check. That was halted as the girls needed to see the princesses at town square. Hubby and I sat on the rocking chairs and relaxed, people watching as it was MNSSHP and the people coming in had some phenomenal costumes. Watched the flag retreat and headed to the boats. To our amazement none of the boats were running. I assume from the crazy winds. Had to take a bus instead.
Got back to the trailer and pine needles were everywhere lol. Bit of sweeping, some BBQ'd sausage and beans and a glass of wine made for a relaxing dinner. Talked with our friends who should be arriving tomorrow morning but they decided to keep driving as the hurricane made things uncertain. We waited up til they arrived just after 1am. They enjoyed sleeping in the parking lot of the fort. Lol. Better than in the path of a hurricane.....

Saturday October 27th
Had a morning of shuttling our friends from the parking lot to the showers, talking over coffee before getting them checked in. The site that they had originally locked in was given away and they were suppose to be in the 600 loop. Grrrrr. Got them relocated to the same loop as us thank goodness. Their golf cart arrived and we got things situated. Decided to go take in Typhoon Lagoon since today is its last day before refurb. Even though it was a tad cold, we had a blast!!! Closed it down and headed back for dry clothes, a quick bite for dinner before we headed to Epcot for a bit of food and wine while watching Illuminations. Everyone was so tired from being up late the previous night, we headed back for a good nights sleep....

Driving not flying, It's hard to read the street signs from that far up!

Sunday October 28th
Super excited as the 8 of us went for 'Ohana. Took the boat over to MK and then monorailed to Poly. Our friends 8 yr old son was amazed. He loved the characters. Meal was outstanding and loved our photopass plus group shot.
Did get a message from home and apparently Hurricane Sandy is going to hit home harder than it did here. Our oldest dd is suppose to fly out to Buffalo and then take a greyhound from there to Toronto to Sudbury on Tuesday. Word has it the storm has the potential to close that area. We are unsure at this time what to do with her. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
After breaky we headed to MK and did some rides. Stood in line and waited to meet Merida. My own lil Scottish princess was over the moon to meet her. Fun experience. Next up the fairies!!! Met with Tink and Periwinkle ( her Winter twin sister in case you haven't seen the newest movie lol) and them met back up with our friends to go on Jungle Cruise, Tiki Room, Pirates of Carribean. Laughed ourselves silly watching the camel at the Aladdin ride spit on people. No one knew where it was coming from. Lol. MK was having a MNNSHP so we caught a boat at our closing. Beautiful sunset silhouettes. Had a quick bite to eat. Went golf cart looping, lots more decorations. Amazing. Caught the HalloWishes shoe down at the beach but it was soooo windy and cool we didn't stay for the electrical water parade.

Hi Tented1,
My daughter loves highland dancing. Good thing as her lessons are about an hours drive away from our house. She also plays Rep girls hockey so we tend to drive her everywhere. Lol.

You're exactly right storyteller!! Altho.... If I had taken the same photo after food and wine... Well you know it would've been due to refreshments. Lol
