Then again, I think I'd be happy just walking the queue it's so spectacular. Plus, Ursula is just phenomenal!
That would make sense! I do love it, I know people were underwhelmed as it was just "another dark ride" but I loved it!

Oh Gaston. "How can you read this?! There are no pictures!"

I'm glad that the Ariel you met was awesome!

Hahaha I think I could deal with having no voice and Prince Eric. We could cheat and write things down right?

Ariel's grotto is up there on my list of favorite places ever. I think I included the same stock photo in my TR hahahaha! It's too pretty not to share!

I love your pose with Ariel!
Thanks!! It's always been one of my things to try and take as many ride picutres as possible, this time around it's going to be video though haha!
It's so gorgeous in there!!

Their swooning actually made Gaston into the brute we see later in the movie, and they were in support of his plan to blackmail Belle into marrying him, too.

That picture of Gaston....awesome.
it would be awesome

The West Wing is Forbidden!


Little notes here!
-Hi team! Hope you're all doing wonderful and having a magical day!
-I'm going to start powering through this TR to finish it off as there are less updates in it than there are left to post in Sept's TR, PLUS I have a PTR going and I have a short May TR to start up sometime, and that is too many to have on the go!
-Also because the next two updates were identical in the dining report, I'm going to update a bunch, sorry for the novel of reading for you, bahah! #sorrynotsorry!

***


Paige and I made sure to swim carefully out of the grotto, and made our way back towards Belle’s area of the expansion, as we were headed over to our destination for lunch!



Nope…not headed there…although it is a meal I would like to do with Paige…



YUP! This was our destination! The line was all the way down the bridge, and a little bit around the corner, it was 10:55 at this point, so the restaurant was just opened for the day, we weren’t too upset, I mean, it’s amazing, we could wait!

While we were in line, I realized that we still had PPF fast passes on us, and after checking the time, realized that we in fact, would not be able to use them due to the fact that we were going for lunch! Eeek! I asked Paige for hers to gift to someone, and then ducked out of the line and quickly found a couple of women that were headed toward the expansion and asked if they would like them? They were super appreciative and asked if I wanted them to run and grab me some more so that we could use them later! So cute! I politely declined, and hurried back to Paige in the line.









The entrance way, gates and all are so majestic, they’re awesome. I do think however, that the “forced perspective” really doesn’t work on the Beast’s castle, it just looks like it’s plonked on up there…but oh well, we were excited!!





There definitely were some people who really didn’t know their Disney who were in line behind us

The amount of people who will get in lines without knowing what it’s for is crazy!! #beourguest


Above the doorways into the castle they have a beautiful mosaic (we’ll pretend that’s right!) of the prologue of Beauty and the Beast!



The prince turning away the beggar woman, the rose itself, and the beggar woman turning into the enchantress!







We had very much progressed forward in the line as we waited, and that was exciting, time for another selfie!







The big stone ….eagle….. is up by the mosaic of the story, and they have the lions guarding the doors! There’s also gargoyles along the bridge, but you’ll see pictures of those later!







We got into the first room and Paige DARTED off to the bathroom as she just couldn’t hold it any longer. Apparently while she was in there she became the adoptive mother of some children...uhm…no, those are not hers….She did make it back in time to get to hear the suits of amour talking/coughing, it was pretty loud in there, but you could still here them every so often!





Those little menus screens were places along the middle of the hallway, and would change every so often between the menu, the kids options, pictures of stuff, and more! It was nice that they had these so people could attempt to know what they wanted, but most people still had troubles later on.



We finally made it around the corner where you get the rose, and told them we’d be paying separately, myself with cash, and Paige with a card. I don’t know why I didn’t just put it on my visa as I knew it was easier to deal with a card, but whatever. I was directed over to a cast member behind a til, and Paige was directed over to a self serve kiosk thing.

Now, I wanted the basic, kids turkey sandwich, the same I had gotten last time, and a French onion soup, and a cupcake. I started to order, and the guy was just SUPER snarky with me, and I REALLY didn’t appreciate it., A lot of the time I’ll get immediately shelled in and flustered when people do things like that, and I won’t speak up about things until after, so I didn’t even really realize what was going on, and then realized I had forgotten to order my cupcake, and was actually really upset about it. Ugh. Anxiety problems I tell ya.

Paige was dealing with her own problems as she was stuck behind a family who definitely didn’t know what they were doing at the self serve, or didn’t know what they want. She rolled her eyes at me as I looked back at her and I confirmed that she wanted to eat in the West Wing before racing off to get a seat.

CONTINUED IN NEXT!

Whatevs, We're Rebels!

I hurried my little but over to the West Wing, knowing it was smaller and would probably be harder to get a table in there, but managed to arrive right as some cast members were finishing cleaning off a table, so I grabbed a seat, grabbed my coffee, and some utensils and then sat down to wait for Paige in the forbidden West Wing!







If you ever get the chance to eat in the West Wing, pay close attention to the portrait and the rose! The room is clearly, forbidden, so it’s “thunder storming” outside when you’re in there, and when the storm gets really intense, the portrait will flash to the Beast and back! And a petal will fall off the rose! We also found out later in the week that if you go right up to the fence in front of the rose, and look to the curtain to the right, you can see a tear in the curtain that makes a hidden Mickey!

Paige found me pretty easily, and dropped her rose off at the table and grabbed her drink after I told her where to go, and before we knew it, my food was coming out!





French Onion Soup to start with, and then the Kids Carved Turkey Sandwich with yam “wedges” and you may notice the GAPING whole in the middle…it wasn’t served like that…it was served with fries, which I did not want, I was actually under the impression I had ordered the apple sauce, but Mr Sour Pants at the til had me so flustered that I had apparently ordered “pomme frittes” instead….Welp, this was another moment, that, in combination with the fact that I hadn’t gotten a cupcake, AND I was supposed to get a mini water bottle with the meal that I never got, it wasn’t a very good moment, I was doing my darndest to hold back the tears.

Thankfully, the cast member who dropped off the food said he would be able to bring out the apple sauce for me in a minute, and I did the proudest thing ever, I took all the French fries, wrapped them up in a napkin, half crushed them, and pushed them to the other side of the table where the continued to stay for the entire meal. THIS is another reason I don’t order fries with things, I don’t want them, I try to eat healthy, and I don’t like it when people are all “oh, I’ll bring you what you wanted on top of what you have” I’m like “NO! Take this part away first, please”

ANYWAYS, Paige got the Mickey Meatloaf with vegetables, and she was able to remember to get a cupcake, the Lemon Meringue one to be specific!





It was all so amazing! OOOOMMMM NOOOOOOM!! The sandwich is on multigrain bread, and just has turkey and tomato, no overload of cheese, the yam wedges are so delicious, and the peach applesauce is a nice light “dessert” options as well. I found the soup to not be as great as it had been the last time I was there, but it was still super tasty!

Paige loved her meatloaf, bonus, it was in the shape of Mickey’s head, so that was fantastic. I know there was some kind of vegetable that she didn’t want and she was able to order without it, or substitute it, I’m not sure.

Since I was having such a rough cupcake moment, Paige was also amazing enough to share the Lemon Meringue cupcake with me, and BOY, was it DELICIOUS!! Like, it rivals the Red Velvet at Starring Rolls (another reason why I want to try the lemon meringue over at SR too!). It was super light and fluffy, and moist, the lemon wasn’t over powering and it was just amazing. I will have to say, the wrappers that the cupcakes are in are not ones you can tear off, the easiest thing to do is to just eat it with a fork, problem solved!

While I was eating, I texted a picture of the rose to my roommate saying “We’re eating in the west wing!”

Roomie: “the west wing is forbidden! The master is not happy!”

Me: “Whatevs, we do what we want! Lawlz.”|


Paige and I finished eating our lunches, and after taking a few pictures, we proceeded out into the ballroom, where I took a few photos, and Paige proceeded to put blinders on and run out of the room, although, not before stopping for a photobomb…









Yup…snuck that little one in there… The reason she was bolting out and not taking pictures was because she wanted to save the whole experience for later, when we had dinner plans.

On the way out of lunch, there were a few cast members around with the little touch screen survey things, and we got stopped by a guy asking about our experience. He asked how long we waited, how we would rate the experience on a couple of different subjects, which of course we said was all wonderful, and that we had waited around 45 minutes from when we got in the line to when we ate. He then asked if there was any way that our experience could have been better, and I replied;

“The only way that this place could be any more amazing would be if you were to start offering wedding receptions here!” And he actually wrote it all down!! AH! Hopefully by the time I am ready to be married, I will be having my reception in there! On the way out, I did notice that the stained glass portrait of Belle and the Prince was covered, and that made me extremely sad! However, we had many more adventures to do today, so we moved on!

Better Not Be Flying with any Wendy Birds!

Our bellies were full with some delicious food from lunch, and we decided that it was time to venture into the side of the park that we hadn’t been yet, and crossed through Fantasyland to Liberty Square. Along the way we gaped at Rapunzel’s tower, praying and hoping that it would actually be a meet and greet, and that it would open before we left. I’d heard online that it was due to open on Feb 28th, so I was hoping that would happen.

One of Paige’s favorites, Haunted Mansion was next up for us, I know we didn’t wait long, and we may have played around in the interactive queue for a bit on the way into the stretching room. I told Paige a little factoid that I’d heard online, that the Haunted Mansion is designed that at first, you’re alive, and that’s why the ghosts are all trying to scare you, and then when the ride goes backwards and “down” a bit before going into the graveyard, that’s when you’re “dying” and that’s why the spirits are all nice and friendly and coming out to socialize after that point. I’m not sure if it’s actually true or not, but it’s a cute “storyline” to go along with the ride. We also searched high and low for the hidden Mickeys, Jacks, and Sally, but didn’t see any except for the plates in the dining room.

When we managed to get out of the mansion alive, we headed further into Frontierland, and saw some adorable little Chipmunks in their adorable Western wear hanging around, so we jumped in the short line to meet them. We only waited around two minutes, nice and quick!







They really liked Paige’s bow, and were “talking” to us about how they wished they could fly up trees instead of having to climb, and they “crowed” for us, and were really all over the Peter Pan stuff, it was super cute!





It kinda irks me that there’s only the option to add Dale’s autograph as a “border” I would love it if there was the option for both the chipmunks! We talked a little bit with them/the attendants about their new Western outfits and how they would fit in very well where we were from, and how we have Stampede during the summer and I’m pretty sure they wanted to come with us, haha! While we were meeting with them, the rain started again, hence why we were under the porch instead of in their usual spot. Because of the rain, we didn’t really want to be outside, and Splash was down, so we headed over to pixie hollow next!

The wait time was posted at 35 minutes, but honestly, this is one of those waits that I will always judge more based on what the line LOOKS like. Seriously, sometimes it’s posted at 45 minutes and it goes around one bend, and sometimes it’s posted at 20 and it wraps all the way through the queue and is at the door, like, just no. In the end we actually waited around 20 minutes. When we were shrunk down and got around the corner, we found Rosetta out today, and she came right up to us and started chattering away.



She noticed the lime green Mickey head/disboard tag on my bag (the ones you used to be able to get at Home Hardware, the paint chips, the universal sign of “I’m on the disboards” things) and she pulled it a bit closer to get a closer look at it and went “huh, that’s interesting”. Who knows if she just was wondering what it was, or if maybe she had a “good friend” who was on the disboards, and knew what it was all about, who knows?! Rosetta also liked our outfits, and told us to talk more to Tink about Peter, as she knew more about that kind of stuff. Then she had us pose like pixies!







We said thanks to our newfound garden talent friend, and moved up to the pole where they have you wait for Tink to finish with the previous family, and Paige and I discussed how it looked like this was the same Tink we had met at the Halloween party…or was it?





Upon closer inspection and once we started chatting with her we realized it wasn’t the same friend, she was shorter, and not as tan, and we also noticed that she looked a little on the older side, but that was okay, it still worked! Tink we super talkative, and happy that we were both fans (we both have Tinkerbell bags) and took note of the outfits we were wearing. She asked if Paige had been flying around with any Wendy birds out there, and we said we hadn’t ran into any! She liked that, and then told us that she had been playing a game of tag with Peter recently, so if we ran into him later, if we could bop him on the nose and say that he was “it” now. Super cute!

Uggh. Sorry about the cranky CMs at BoG. In real life I'm pretty good about not letting people be rude to me, but at WDW I'm usually so caught off guard when they are that I just freeze up as well. Sorry about your cupcake.


Cute, cute Chip and Dale pics. Love their outfits.


Maybe I'm too picky, but that Rosetta is so thin! She's gorgeous, but so skinny! I guess it seems like she's usually a healthier 'real woman' size.

Fun update! Loved the West Wing when I ate there too, but didn't know about the Beast/Prince portrait thing or the hidden mickey! Definitely will have to look for that in October

Fun fact: The hidden Jacks in the Haunted Mansion aren't visible from the ride track, except for 1. The only 1 that's sort of noticeable is in the bride's attic on the right side, directly before you move outside and turn backwards. It's a plush Jack sitting in the corner of one of the shelves. You can kind of see the stripes on his suit, but you really have to be looking for it to know it's there! The others are pretty small, like a Jack head on 1 of the book spines in the library.

Only know this because I got to do a backstage tour of HM when I was a CM! We walked the ride track before opening w/a CM who's been there FOREVER. Definitely an awesome experience!

Haha, it caught me super off guard and I just didn't expect it so it really thew a wrench into lunch, but hey, I got over it!

Ahahaha, that's totally fair, especially since the Rosetta you guys liked so much was super curvy, I do believe that she's a southern girl, and she's a little curvier, that friend is definitely skinny. In the princesses dresses, size doesn't show as much so it's easier to cover up but in the fairy ones they're pretty all out there!

Heck yes! It's awesome!!

AH! Well I'll pass that onto Paige, and keep my eyes out for it next time!! I've heard about that tour! A CM at AoA was telling us all about it as he helped us deal with a room switch, told us a bunch of stuff like that, it was great!!

Wow, that was seriously sweet of them to ask if they could get you new FP's. I don't think I've ever seen that before.

OH Gawd Paige's photobomb had me laughing.

The only thing cuter than Chip and Dale is Chip and Dale in little cowboy hats.

BTW, they do now have a Chip/Dale together border.

Ok, all caught up on this one too!

The Little Mermaid ride is just perfect! Well at least I think so. I love the whole experience including the line.

Ariel is one of DHs favorite princesses so I am sure we will be visiting Ariel's grotto in October. Probably going to do the LM ride and meet and greet first on our MK day. Well, unless by some miracle the new Snow White coaster is open. One can wish!

Such a bummer that you got a nasty CM at BOG. I just love that restaurant although I was sad that they took the Cornish Hen off the dinner menu. I don't know if I'll ever do lunch though because nothing on the menu appeals to me. As long as they have the chocolate cupcake I will be going back for dinner! I spent a while trying to get the wrapper off of mine in March. I'm glad to know they actually don't peel off. I thought I was just stupid or something.

You got some great Meet and Greets in after lunch!

Love the LM ride!! So much, Ack! The meet and greet is awesome too, haha, Ariel's the best! I really hope that my tattoo removes properly so I can have the chance to be friends with her! I WISH the coaster would be open by Fall, but I doubt it, the princess hall on the other hand, I could really care less about bahaha

I need to find an updated menu from them!! There are a few things that are pretty tasty on the kids menu! Lawl, that's where I'll eat off of. Ahaha, don't worry, we were trying to do that to before we gave up and just ate it out of the thing!

Awww, that's sweet that the people you gifted your PPF fastpasses to asked if you wanted them to get you new ones.

Girl, people are lemmings! They just queue up wherever there are people and are like "oh, there's people here! It must be something amazing!!!!"

Ugh.....snarky CM! We'll travel together someday my friend. I don't get clammed up when people frustrate me, so I would have been all like "excuse me!?". Hahaha! I get mean! And I would be meaner if I realized that I didn't order my cupcake!!

Wedding receptions at Be Our Guest. Great idea!!!

I'm going to say that Rosetta is a "good friend" who's familiar with the DISboards.

Oh my gosh can we pleeeeeeease!! That would be some crazy trip!! Whatre you doing food & wine time this year?! Bahah

It would be amazing, my wedding needs to happen there!! Ceremony pre park opening just behind the castle, photos, then everyone gets a 1 day park hopper pass to go play all day and meet up for BOG dinner & dancing!! With a break for Wishes of course!!

Probably!! I know if I was hanging with any characters Id notice a LGMH!!

The Original Boy Band!

I’ll apologize to you guys now for the lack of photos in this update, sometimes I’ll go a long time without taking a single picture, baha! Paige and I headed over to battle some fierce pirates after we had been hanging out with Tink, and I commented that I wasn’t surprised to see a sign saying that there would be no “pirates tutorial” today, thanks to the wet ground. Makes sense because one of the actors who does the “sidekick” roll once took a slip in a puddle, smashed his head, and later died in hospital….eck.

Puddles aside, we headed into the ride and both enjoyed it, though the mermaid skeletons are just creepy, lol. After a quick browse through the gift shop, Paige suggested big thunder and just as we got over to Pecos Bill’s, we realized it was just a little bit too wet, we didn’t want to go on an outdoor coaster with the rain like how it was, wouldn’t be enjoyable. What to do next?! Well, head to the only indoor coaster that Magic Kingdom has of course!

We are seriously walking RIGHT onto Space Mountain! #awesome #nowait #disneyworld #mylifeisWDW


Yup! The wait was posted at 10 minutes, but we walked straight into our rocket! It was totally wicked! Both Paige and I said that it seemed to be way tamer than the last time we had ridden it, and figured that the other side of the mountain was probably a bit more intense or something. With our adrenaline pumping, we headed back to the hub, seeing that they had guys squeegee-ing the stage, and they had had fans going on it all day when the rain had stopped, we figured that they might actually be doing Dream Along! With a quick check to the times guide, we saw we had just enough time to grab another set of fast passes before the show was to start! We were also aware of the lack of photos we had so far, so I proclaimed that the next photopass person we saw, we would get a picture!

Because of the rain, they were all kind of under shelter, but on our way down Main Street, we saw one in a prime location for us!





Don’t judge…it’s a really saddening time on Main Street without that bakery! I will admit, I’m more than okay with it having some starbucks aspects to it, I love the specialty coffees, and they have soy milk, lactose free milk, and like, a million different options. Although if I do want just a COFFEE, I’d kill for a Tim Hortan’s somewhere in Disney. Paige and I continued to our destination, but got distracted by some awesomeness of singing! I mean, hey, they are the ORGINAL boy band, and, thanks to this weeks “Limited Time Magic” they were singing boy band hits like Nsync and Backstreet Boys!!







Here’s a little video to go along with that as well! It’s super quiet, but you can kinda hear them, and it’s pretty awesome!

And here: this one popped up when I opened mine, it’s the full set of everything and probably better quality! Lol. (It’s from Disneyland, but hey, same thing, right?)

After that distraction, we finally grabbed some fast passes for the princesses for later, and then made our way back up Main Street, and saw that the photopass photographers had come out from under the awning, so we got some more pictures!









The one with the balloons in the background is by far my favorite, it’s just the most perfect summary of Disney, happiness, balloons, the castle, rain….Lawl! But really, it’s so colorful and bright I like it! We finaly made it back to the hub and claimed our spot for our favorite show!




And then they announced that the show was cancelled…I’m not kidding this time. We were super sad, but figured we would be back sometime during the week to watch it, and then we got the special surprise that all the characters/dancers still came out! They half sang/marked the choreography for everything for part of the finale of the show, which was super great! Super hilarious, as they were all walking out, and the princesses and their princes did some kind of spinning thing to get out their gracefully, but Aurora and Phillip just COMPLETELY screwed it up and thus ended up just dying of laughter while they were trying to finish the show!









Paige and I immediately took notice to Wendy and Peter this time, and noticed just how PERFECT Wendy is, I mean, just look at her, she is so pretty, and looks like she could actually be like, twelve years old! Peter was also super young looking, and he also had a derp moment that he forgot what he was doing and screwed up the choreo, bahah!









I have a million pictures of this Wendy just because I have a love for Wendy now, and during the actual show, she’s jumping around so much that it’s super hard to get good pictures of her! It’s also a good thing I had so many pictures, as after posting them on tumblr, I saw someone reblog one and say “A lovely picture of my good friend Wendy!” and after some chatting, I was able to send her the rest of the pictures, which is nice as I know face characters friends are always looking for pictures of them in the parks! Yay!



I also have that super random picture because that girl was seriously tiny, like, the smallest thing ever. This was also the first time I’d seen blonde wigs on anyone in the show!





Cindy’s fab, there’s no doubting that….



You also might find this snow prince hanging around with Flynn during the parties/parades, I’m sure of it!
