It probably was less strange then I made it sound. I just wasn't following the story line all that well. On the other hand, it is weird that we got a PP card with random strangers on it. I wonder if they are still doing that.

OMG - I totally cracked up when I saw this this morning. Nice!

Well, either Cynthia or Pat said that they offered another pp card to everyone in the room, so we took one. I vaguely remember that now. That explains why we had random people on our card.

The cottage was pretty cool. It had some nice details. I think I was just too tired to fully pay attention to the show. But I definitely think its more appropriate for girls and small kids.

Great update MEK and eandesmom! I love the Castle fireworks pics. I can't get enough of them. I am so looking forward to our trip this October for MNSSHP and F&W. I guess I'd better wear my Halloween costume during the first part of our trip because after F&W, it might not fit!!

Despite that fact, it is an interesting concept, and I really do hope to see it sometime soon... I just won't be waiting and hour to do it.
I think its a great opportunity to get pictures of your kids and to watch them participate in a story. But for just me who really doesn't know the story that well, it wasn't that exciting. I will try it again though!

And none of the participants but that one little boy look like they are having a good time.
I don't think your family is the right demographic for this attraction, although I think you all have the potential to have a lot of fun with it because you guys have fun with everything. I think I can see John dressed up as a night!

As far as the participants - I don't think anyone had any idea what to expect, so they were probably all like

I can totally see Paxton hanging out with Belle and it certainly would make for some great photos. I will admit - for the photo opportunity its definitely worth it to wait in line!

It was a bit odd, but I'm glad you got it. The PP pix are really, really good and those kids are adorable!

He hadn't blown it, but this guy has favorites for random reasons and Nick has worked really hard to get more games. If you get a regular itinerary of games every weekend you can make some good bucks. So I think I was angry with him for (1) listening to his friends and not checking the schedule himself and (2) for losing credibility in the eyes of this guy who is trying so hard to develop a sense of trust with. This is basically Nick's only job. I haven't pushed him to get a regular job because he loves doing this so much. So DON'T mess it up!

I'm glad you guys got to see it. It really wasn't a long wait. I don't have any pictures of the queue, so we must have walked straight in.

Sarah was chosen to play a part and at the end they gave us a special PP card with everyone's pictures on it that was in that show. Maybe they gave them to everyone in the room? We just added them to our PP account.
Cynthia says they gave them to everyone, so I'm sure she took it for us. I bet the pictures of Sarah are adorable and I can totally see your girls getting into it. That would be fun. If I was watching it with kids I knew I think it would be a good attraction, especially for pictures

Well, actually Cynthia and I traveled together in May 2011 and we have been conversing on the boards for quite awhile. We also knew Pat pretty well from the boards and we knew she was cool and laid back, so its not surprising we became fast friends!

I've sat here a few times thinking that the way you all look in those wigs reminded me of something n couldnt figure out what it wasbut,as soon as I saw Pat n Cynthia's faces in the haunted mansion pic where the ghost is in the coach n you throw your hands back with a scared face.......It came to me Pat looks like Vicki Lawrencein it and so the 3 of you could be characters from the Carol Burnette show!!!

I remember the old Storytime with Belle by the castle, and this just seems to be the same thing with a few props. Seems like it's definitely for the younger crowd.

I would agree that it seemed wrong to give the PP card to everyone whether or not they were in the Belle show and not have pictures with anyone who wanted it. Maybe it would take too long?
I know Paige was sort of bummed because Belle is her favorite princess and Sarah was in the show and got a picture with her. Then again, Paige didn't want to be in the show. Nor did we really know what was going to happen in there!

I like your castle and fireworks shots too Cynthia!
Your "special" PP pictures are great - wish we'd have done that! Guess I'll have to go back!

REally? We ate first and then went back to HM before we went to BTMMR? Do you think we ate, went to BTMMR, and then HM? I thought we went to BTMMR but I wasn't even sure. I really did time warp after we ate dinner.

I really wish my pictures were better of her. I had never been through the queue since it updated so Mary Ellen and Pat were kind enough to go through it with me and let me play.
She was so freakin' funny! I don't remember ever seeing her during my first party, but I loved her at the second party. What a great job to have!

I LOVE BTMMR in the dark and I have no doubt that the wig was probably falling off my head because knowing me I just had it off to scratch my scalp!

My personal big beef with it is that they did NOT ask if anyone else wanted their picture with Belle. Only those participating got one but then we all got the PP card with the entire show and PP pics on it.
I agree - if I had watched someone i knew or my own kids or nephews, I would have enjoyed the attraction more.

She really was fabulous. I enjoyed her a lot. She was my favorite part of the attraction.

Thanks! Hallowishes was really a great show and we had such a fabulous viewing area. Glad you like the pics and you are going to love MNSSHP.

I know all about that problem.

I read this comment earlier today on my phone and I totally cracked up! Vicki Lawrence - I can totally see that.

I think the effects were gone before you walked through, although don't hold me to complete accuracy since I seem to have blanked out for part of the evening.

It was definitely for the younger crowd - and there parents.

Hey - it could happen! Let's just say I gave MOST of the candy to Nick.

I know Paige was sort of bummed because Belle is her favorite princess and Sarah was in the show and got a picture with her. Then again, Paige didn't want to be in the show. Nor did we really know what was going to happen in there!
I think it would definitely take too long. I guess they are figuring that if you are not in the show you probably wouldn't even want the card. But of course good DISers like us are going to take it no matter what!

Your "special" PP pictures are great - wish we'd have done that! Guess I'll have to go back!
We had such a great spot for pictures. It was pretty exciting to know you were in a good spot and to know your pictures are going to turn out.

Funny how there is always another reason to go back.

Belle is a favorite of mine, I have always loved the story of Beauty and the Beast. My new favorite is Brave, the movie really affected me in a way I did not expect.

Anyway to be redundant, pictures are all good as usual!

I will admit - he sure does look happy!





Now this little guy doesn't look completely sure



This little girl needs some sleep



In a boy's dream





Oh Belle, why can't I take you home with me tonight?



I'll get you my pretty....muhahahahaha



Guy on the left (Thank goodness I agreed to wear this makeup so no one recognizes me)



Is it really bad that I just posted 21 pictures of totally random people that were in this attraction with me?????

NAHHHHHHHHHHH!

Continued in Next Post.........



OMG Mary Ellen... I just got my keyboard partially replaced so thank you very much for the coffee spray that just reChristened it..

Your comments were a little naughty and totally hilarious and I hope now that it's Lent you are planning to behave yourself...

for someone who was out of it ... you did have some interesting commentary and very good photos...


I did love Pat's Queen of Hearts Photo...

& I'm guessing that Cynthia was the designated driver this night since she seems to have a clear idea of what actually transpired in Belle's cottage that evening...

I would do it if the line wasn't crazy and I could get David and Ems in there with me... since Belle is her favorite princess...


Can't wait to see what you all get up to next... Curious to see if MaryEllen makes it on her morning run the next day...
