It was really amazing. We were able to do everything we wanted that day. It was just perfect.

Thank you

Whoop a new update... You guys saw a lot and went on a lot of rides, I would have never thought you would have had the place to yourself that much! You had a great crowd for this visit.

Love all the pictures!

I just couldn't believe the lack of people, it was so fabulous. Would definitely go back in September because it was so perfect. I was so glad they were able to see it like that and not have to wait in tons of lines. It was a great trip for them.

August and Sept are rough for me, mainly the heat.... Even this last year in May, I was so hot, I was miserable, but I did get to know LaCava very well...

Love the new updates!

Maybe i'm just crazy, but didn't Dumbo used to have two rows per elephant? Did they change them over or has it always been one row? We had planned on Calvin's first 'official' ride to be Dumbo and we would sit behind my mom while she took pics, but guess she'll have to sit in the elephant in front of us. Do you think me, DH and Calvin will be allowed to sit in one elephant? Oh my gosh, love the queue area! What a brilliant idea!

I can't remember if they had the interactive queue set up in 2010 for Winnie the Pooh so that's something we'll have to check out as well.

It was sweltering, no doubt about it. I can't imagine how hot it is in August. I went in June once and it was even hotter. Those are the times I can enjoy the pools.

I'm going to say I don't think so only because I know they used the original Dumbos for one of the new ones. I think Aladdin's carpet ride has two rows. Oh yeah, you guys will definitely fit in one elephant. In one of the pictures there's two grown men together in front of me. Plenty of room for you tiny people the new Dumbo queue is so cute!

The Pooh queue was done around the 2010 holidays if I'm remembering correctly. I think it had just been done before my January 2011 trip. Really cute, helps the time go by easier. There's pictures in the honey walls to find if you have time.

adding: I went back to see the photo of the guys together and I couldn't find it. Finally realized I didn't post it because it wasn't a good one. I had taken a picture that my elephant was orange. They look a little cramped but they're in there.

Thank you so much for posting this picture! I didn't want DH and I to have to ride twice so we could get our pictures on Dumbo with Calvin. Glad we can have a little family pic.

Uh oh, I can't remember what I said. Hopefully not bad things. It was a different kind of trip there's no doubt about that.

Ok...so now I'm done reading

First, let me say WOW to no crowds!! That's unheard of at WDW....unbelievable. Your pics of the MK with very few people make me soooo jealous. I remember as a kid having days like that in the parks. Unfortunately my kids won't be able to say that I started laughing when you said you didn't want to ride IASW...my DH feels the same. He gives me such a hard time about that ride. Loved seeing the new Fantasyland shots!!! It looks awesome!!!

Well...I can totally understand why you would get frustrated with your family. It's very hard to travel with others when you have your own way of doing things....especially to a place like WDW. While I love my sister and her family very much, we have different vacation styles. They would hate going to the World with us. The cruise was a much better 'family' vacation for everyone

Looking forward to more!
Heather

I can't believe you got to ride Dumbo twice without getting off! Score! As much as I love the new ride, its just so darn short. What a tease.

I finally rode the Goofini ride too. Cute, but again - too short.

Hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving!
