Ugh.....I have never been a fan of the advertising-wrapped monorails. But at least, like you said, Tronorail rolls off the tongue quite nicely!! Now it's Avengers??....Really, WDW? Blah. If they are going to wrap these things, they should stick with the timeless stuff like characters, rides, resorts, etc..

Anywho, that last sunset pic is gorgeous!!! What a great shot.

I think the pictures are the best part of a TR anyway! Love pictures, especially when they give me butterfies by looking at them.

Thanks for posting some pictures of AoA .. We'll be staying in November and it's nice to see them since they're aren't too many available yet.

Looks like you and your daughter had a great time. One day ((many years from now)) I'd like to take a little trip with just my DD.

Okay, guys, I'm back! As soon as I can take a trip over to photobucket, then I'll start up again.

That is, if I still have readers

I wanna stay in the toaster oven so I can walk to the Magic Kingdom

That evening, we ended up taking the boat over towards the Magic Kingdom. For whatever reason, the monorail went down and stayed down forever. We had one destination. . .the Contemporary Resort for. . .cupcakes.

Yes, even though we had eaten dinner over at Art of Animation, we wanted some cupcakes from the Contempo Cafe. See I had been informed that the cupcakes were awesome. I had to check out for myself.


Soon, very soon.


The footpath over is really not the best in the world, but I would just love to get up in the morning and know I was less than 1 mile from the front gate of Magic Kingdom. Definitely on my "to do" list.


This is cool, too.


My favorite resort shop, which, oddly enough, I have never bought anything from. . .


Red velvet cupcake. Yummy.


Inside of the cupcake


Very last of the lemon cupcakes. This was good, but I remember it being a little sickly sweet. I like lemony goodness to be very tart.

We left the Contemporary just in time for the water parade:


How does a dragon survive the water, anyhow?


Sadly, instead of finishing the monorail loop, we ended up at the bus stop to get back to the resort. It had been a long day and I really just wanted to sleep. We arrived back in time to see Illuminations from over AOA.




And we saw some of the night sights at POP Century.


I wonder if they took all of the stickers off like I did. . .


This is more like how mine stayed. . .


Am I the only person who finds Mr. and Mrs. a little creepy?!?


Take a message, Mickey

This night at POP Century reminded me of why I typically choose at least a moderate resort. I remember not being able to sleep well because we could hear the toilet flush next to us. I truly was glad for a place to sleep, but when you are excited about the next day, that flushing noise is relly too much, lol!

Coming up. . .no matter where you are, that morning coffee walk is the best, I tell you!

I've heard so many good things about the cupcakes at Contempo here lately. Sorry the lemon was too sweet. I'm like you - I like my lemon stuff to be have a bite!

Love all of the night photos of Contemporary and POP! Contemporary is my #1 dream resort. One day I'll stay there!!

The Coffee Walks are the Best

This update is going to be different, as there are very few pictures of this morning. It's no secret that I love my morning coffee walks at Disney. I love going from the room to the front building. I love strolling quietly. Sometimes by myself. Sometimes with a family member. This morning, I was with Sweetie, and we were just taking a stroll to look around POP Century. I can't explain why there is only one picture of evidence. But this is it:


So warm, I felt like swimming then.

I know that after that we walked around. We then packed our meager belongings, put them in the truck, and drove over to Coronado Springs.

Check in was quite fuzzy, but I had done online checkin, and was pleased to have scored a room in Cabanas 8. Unfortunately, the room was not ready. Sweetie and I got our nutritious breakfasts. Here's something I always do: I use my first snack credits right at the resort I'm staying in to prevent having problems with the credits later.


Chocolate Chip muffin


Cinnamon Roll

I took my truck and parked it over at the room, and we boarded the bus to Magic Kingdom. When we got there, I realized something: I left Sweetie's Key tot he World Card in the truck. I thought we'd need to ride the bus back, but the driver just told me to go to Guest Services.

Can I say I the Guest Services desk at Magic Kingdom?!? They had a new card for Sweetie lickety-split, and we were heading through the turnstyles before long.




Just a little early. . .


Coming up. . .just how is breakfast in the castle?

She's already talking about the three girls going together sometime, so I think we will be safe about her thinking she's too cool, lol.

Just How is Breakfast in the Castle?

We had finally started out the day, after some of those minor bumps in the road. One of the reasons why I start my trips at Magic Kingdom is because of this show, and it's why I probably will never do the breakfast before the park opens:


Dude, you are very, very, very ah, different.




For whatever reason, I still totally cry here.


We'll be back here soon enough




First fast passes, then over to Fantasyland for Peter Pan and Liberty Square for the Haunted Mansion

This trip was our first ever one where we did breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table. It was definitely an experience that we enjoyed, but I can't see me taking the boy here. Maybe the next time the entire family goes, Dan can take Sheldon to DTD while we gals enjoy a meal here. . .






Breads. I could have made a meal just with these, but of course, we did have to have some protein. . .


Sweetie's All American Breakfast


My lobster and crab crepes




Belle asked if our dishes were behaving themselves


Ariel showed us here feet and talked about shoes


Almost empty by the time we left


Breakfast here, literally, was just Okay, and definitely not the best we had. We ended up leaving here, riding Space, and then riding Pirates of the Caribbean. The room was ready, and we were ready to settle in a little bit. It as going to be a late, and amazing night.

Coming up. . .This is a STANDARD view?
