I don't think I could have listened to "Daddy" for a full five minutes. Reminds me of a flight home in June where some kid 3 rows ahead of us was playing some sticken game on his gameboy that was so incredible annoying. It took all my restraint not to jump out of my seat and grab that thing out of his hand. Thank goodness for the "seat belt fastened" sign.

Nice pictures of storybook circus.

Judging by Candi's pictures, she takes Buzz Lightyear very seriously!

LOVE the updates, Dan.

I love how Noelle just falls asleep and even loud noises don't phase her.

The photopass pics of you and Parker are really great.

Love Noelle's Tink shirt.

Nice job scoring on Buzz while holding a little one.

The picture of the kids hugging is my favorite.

Great updates, Dan! Love the pictures of the new Dumbo. My kids are going to be so excited about that, they love that ride and the new play area sounds fantastic.

Sorry about the kid at the restaurant though. Man, I can't decide if I'm sorry for him that his family is so unresponsive, or for them if he'd just worn them down over the day.

I mentioned before that the big reveal for our trip was a bit anticlimactic. Well, now that we are two weeks out, they are getting hyper. My daughter and I are meeting a friend in Branson for the weekend for some shopping and a visit and my son went into hysterics this morning when she mentioned "packing' because he thought we were leaving for Disney without him. - and he wasn't packed!

Thanks for the early morning smile. I can face work with a positive attitude now that I've had my coffee and update!

Those photopass pics are adorable! They turned out good.

I can't wait to see the new Fantasyland all done. It is just going to look crazy different!

Looks like we both posted the hidden Mickey in the Buzz line!

The People Mover is one of my favorites...a great way to relax and people watch!

Candi looks like she's in the zone on Buzz, hahaha! I don't think Parker stood a chance with that game face! Love Princess Noelle waving to all her subjects- again, that'll be priceless a few years down the road.

As usual, great update and pictures. Can't wait to hear more!
also good pictures to add to a wedding slide show.

she is always in the zone on those games, trying to beat me. lol
but she is the only one in the family to ever get the 999,999 score so it must work for her.

parker is funny on thoes games he takes about 10 seconds to line up a shot then shoots sometimes we turn the vehicle before he even fires then takes careful aim to do it all over again.

Love the pics of Parker & Noelle holding hands. So sweet! Enjoy it while it lasts, I guess.

Another great spot to eat in Pinocchio's is upstairs! Eating by the window looking over Small World is great too. Really sad that no one was trying to talk to the kid crying for his dad. Although, maybe he had been doing that all day every day for the whole trip and they were just in "ignore it and it'll stop eventually" mode. I can see how it would be really bothersome when you're trying to enjoy your lunch though!
i was glad we saw them there and stopped it was one of the only times i saw someone there, hope they are there more often now that the area is mostly open.

didnt know there was another level above that one...are there windows up there too that look at small world?

very true dont know the situation so maybe there was no calming him down.

I think it's so funny, I didn't even know Pinocchio's overlooked Small World until 1-2 months ago when someone else had it in their TR. Since then I've seen it in a good 2-3 others! The food reviews are consistent though.Super uncool grandma and siblings, poor little guy!

Then again some kids ramp up more if you do try to talk to them so maybe the ignoring was deliberate. I know if Eric gets upset you really have to completely redirect him, logic and soothing are absolutely lost and irrelevant, you literally have to drag him out of his mood by diverting his focus to something totally different.

Which could easily have been done looking at the boats!

Adorable pics and the ones on Buzz are a riot!
i know what you mean my parents have a ton of photo books from growing up but no one has taken the time to scan them in...digital now a days are just so easy to do and share.

i always knew the restraunt was there but never thought about eating there till our last trip and then we didnt think the food sounded great so we skipped it but not this one.

very true not sure what was going on but thinking it was just more the family was tired and didnt want to try.

What a lovely view of the soon to be mine coaster!
im usually at least in the mid 150,000 on buzz, sometimes i hit over 300,000 but never got the coveted 999,999 like candi has she has that stare down glare to shoot those zurgs.

i know cant wait for it to be done, hope it isnt a early 2014 then summer 2014 then holiday 2014...we are going in 2014 just not sure when...and would hate to just miss it like we missed the soft openings this time.

Great job handling the nap and the rides.

Have not eaten in Pinocchios yet. Walked through at Halloween but have yet to eat there much less look at IaSW from there.

Something for the "yet to do list".
if there are details to be found i will count on you to get them.

funny thing is she sleeps with all that noise there but at home you open the fridge while she is napping and she wakes up.

i think you would enjoy it nice spot for a bite to eat.

thanks, just try to tell it like i see, and i usually dont forget much on the interaction front...80% of the stories are just from memory when i look at the pictures...parker is the same way we were looking at a park map the other night and he traced out what route we took to rides and so forth during the day and knew what we did in what order.

Man, Parker is one photogenic kid.

I like that spot overlooking IASW a lot. It's my favorite way to enjoy the ride.

Hard to believe no one would distract or re-direct that kid at the table. Bet you wish you had your taser with you.

i feel you on flights home, i had a doozy of a kid behind me during decent.

he kept screaming that he wanted his daddy...over and over the entire 20 minute decent. she kept saying i cant let you do that we have to stay seated...he was on her lap...the dad was in the row right behind him...you could have easily tossed him over the seat to the dad.

very serious she is a disney shooter game extrodinar.

try those same loud noises at home and its no dice...but fall asleep when a man is pounding on a piece of metal loud enough to make jurasic park ripples in water and sound asleep.

cant let holding little one affect your score on disney shooter games...afterall you can use them as an excuse as to why you did poorly in a game...likewise if you do awesome you get bragging rights for the rest of the day.

i wish we had more time to play in there or that the kids wanted too parker wasnt in to it, so we just took a few picures and left...hope they really enjoy the play area there.

thats too funny he thought you were leaving him. well for you anyway hope he wasnt tramatized.

glad to make your day better hope you can carry it into the weekend as i have a rule not to update on the weekends and take away from time with the kids.

Haha...love it! Love trivia, even if I am not good at it.

Question 1: answer is b) 289 dolls in its a small world
Question 2: it's trickier...I am guessing but think the answer is c) 9:06 is the time on the clock.

I'm totally going to steal the trivia to use on my daughter! She's already asked me which is Disney's fastest ride and what the oldest resort hotel is.
