Loving your TR. The rainbow was sweet. I think AKL is one of my most favorite places in the world to just sit and relax. Thinking about it is helping me get through the last 8 days of school.

Hello...Back from MK for an afternoon break.

We got up early this morning and just grabbed some fruit and a pastry from Mara and then headed to Alamo to return the car. Very easy and they took us right to MK and dropped us off..Actually at the Poly and we grabbed the mono rail so it worked.

We got to MK just as the pre opening show was wrapping up. Crowds were really not too bad at all.

Was a beautiful morning!


We headed for Fantasyland and rode Peter pan first since that line can be long all day and I love that ride. We then headed for NEW Fantasyland and checked out Gaston's tavern and rode the Little Mermaid with just a 5 minute wait.
Josie had to see Gaston!! He is such a ham...have to upload some pics from my digital camera of him. We plan to try some Lafou's brew tonight. The cinnamon rolls looked awesome!!!

We headed to the new storybook circus and rode Dumbo with no wait! That was fun.

We decided to ride Haunted mansion and then Pirates and both less than 10 minute wait. Love to get there first thing in the morning.

By then it was around 11ish and we decided to get in line for BOG! I had to eat lunch there. When we passed by about 10:20 the line was around the corner and over the bridge!!

We got in line at 11:22 and the line was too the end of the gates and they said 45 min to an hour, but it was not at all!!! The line moved quickly so don't be scared by the lines for BOG.


We were inside and at our table with food by 12:05!!!

Ordering was very easy with the Kiosk.




You can even do special request. Josie ordered the grilled ham with Gruyere cheese, but did not want the sauce and you can click to take it off. Really cool and made her happy.

So they must have changed the steak sandwich because now it is a sort of roast beef and it is very good and tender!! Mom and I both ordered that and the French onion soup. The sandwiches are so big that we wished we would have shared one. Next time we will for sure.


Mom and I got the crème puffs for dessert and Jo had the Strawberry cream cheese cupcake and all were delish!!!




The French onion soup was also very rich and good...They also had good fresh brewed iced tea. Nice to have real plates and silverware too. We also loved how they brought our food on the rolling cart. Very nice!
Our bill came to about $66 for the 3 of us. Not to awful, but like I said we could have split a sandwich and saved some money.

We chose to eat in the Beast quarters it was dark and relaxing and when it would thunder the prince picture would turn to the Beast and the rose was cool too!


The lunch at Be Our Guest was well worth the wait! We all enjoyed it very much. Glad I did it since I gave up my BOG dining reservation.

So after lunch we were stuffed and we went to ride the people mover and relax and then took in the Monster laugh floor.


Then storm clouds started rolling in so we thought it would be a good time to take a break at the resort before heading back to MK this evening.


So it was a great day at Magic Kingdom and we will be headed back this evening. I really want to see Wishes. We might go watch from new Fantasyland tonight. I heard it is a cool view from the back????



It has never really rained too much so I think I will head to the pool...Signing out for now....

Magic Kingdom was fun last night and watching Wishes from the new Fantasyland was pretty cool and much less crowded. The fireworks surrounded us and where going off over Beast castle.



We were out pretty late so I could not get Josie moving this morning...

Mom is heading back home to STL today so I have her all checked in for her flight and ME is picking her up soon.

Josie and I are trying to get to Disney Studios!!! On my app Toy Story mania FP are already up to 4pm...UGH!!!

So leaving soon...Talk to you guys tonight.

We are here now and there is no Star wars stuff happening. It was early magic hours morning so it is a bit crowded...we have a FP for TSM and RRC. In line for TOT now...20 min wait. So things calming down a bit since when we first got here.

Last night the 9pm Fantasmic show was standing room only so we decided to skip it....we had the FP for TSM and wow that is the ticket for that ride. Walked right on!!!! I would never wait in a 80 min ljne. It was a lot of fun.
We are on the bus to Epcot now...Lunch at Chef's de France today....we may grab a FP for the new Test track and then head back to the new France Patisserie for breakfast....I read it is open for breakfast, but not a lot of people go.
Will report more later.

Headed back 2 epcot for the evening after an afternoon break. We went to breakfast in France and it worked out perfect. Hardly anyone was there and we got some great pictures. Then we went back to future world and rode the new test track it was really cool. We then decided to grab fast pass for mission space. Ran over to the Nemo at the Living Seas. Then we grab a fastpass for Soarin and headed back to Mission Space. We waited till later to get the fastpass for Soarin so we coule ride it later in the day.
At 1:50 we had our ADR for Chef's de france and were seated right by the windows and I loved that. We were even visited by Remi and he is so cute. Lunch was awesome and relaxing.
Will post pictures soon. Took an afternoon break and now we are headed back for Illuminations and our FP for Soarin.

Back for the day from our 24 hour kick off at MK

So yesterday we spent the day at my favorite park! EPCOT!


Our plan to have a nice relaxing breakfast in France worked out perfect. We walked through WS and we told the lady at the rope that we wanted to go to the bakery and she said go right ahead! It was empty and nice!! That place gets crazy sometimes! We got some great pictures too. We both had the chocolate croissants and cappuccino! Very nice!


Then we made our back past Canada which looks stunning!


We then headed to FW to use our FP's and visit the Living seas with NEMO.

Then in the afternoon we headed to Chef's de France for our 1:50 ADR and was seated right away and next to the windows. It was great and soon after we were seated we were visited by Remi! He is just adorable!! I am so glad we got to see him. It is amazing how he interacts with everyone.



Lunch was really good! I got the pre fixed with the French onion soup and the toasted ham and cheese. Josie had the mac n cheese with the gruyere cheese.
She loved it. The bread they served was also wonderful and I even had a glass of Chardonnay and it was only 6.95. We shared the dessert that came with my pre fix and got the crème brulee!! Yum! Service was excellent too.

So then we headed back to AKV to rest up and came back in the evening. Used our FP for Soarin and then headed to WS. I had to get my Fiesta Margarita from Mexico! Wonderful and refreshing!


By the way the Dole whip is gone from Epcot!!!! Sorry...we wanted more and it was gone...

Josie wanted more from the France Bakery so we headed there again! I felt like I spent all day in France!


We then staked out a great spot near Canada for Illuminations...Fabulous as ever!

So we headed back to AKV to get to bed....

Our alarm went off at 4:45 this morning!!! Was not as bad as I thought it would be! We got ready and was at the bus stop at 5:15 and no one was there!! Getting a bit worried and then another couple showed up. Then the bus came with a few rowdy people from Kidani and we were on our way!


Once we arrived there were lots of people at MK and the press was there and radio stations. Very exciting! They gave us all special pins for the event.
Then the train conductor come and Mike and Sulley and they counted down the opening for the 24 hour All nighter. Then Mickey and his friends came on the train!




Once inside it was great...Everything was lite up and it was just cool walking down Mainstreet at dawn.


We met two friends from the DIS boards that we sailed on the Disney Dream with and hung with them all morning. It was a lot of fun. We had the park practically to ourselves till around 9:30. We walked on everything and went to Gaston's and had a cinnamon roll for breakfast...miss the bakery on Mainstreet...
Still it was all good.





Around 10:30 things started picking up...We rode Splash Mountain and then had some Nachos from the Tortuga Tavern and the headed out. The nachos were not too bad and they had a fixen bar too.

We bought ourselves the commemorative t shirts to wear tonight! They are really cute.

Crowds were getting bigger and tons of people coming in when we left.


I am sure it is really crowded and really HOT! about now...

Josie is sleeping and I just came up from the pool...Planning to head back this evening in time for Wishes and then planning to stay till 6:00am!!

Wish us luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sadly this is our last day.. It has been an awesome week!! I have us checked in for our flight, but we decided no packing till morning....We do not want to think about going home...We have an exciting night ahead of us!!!

We hung in there till 5:15am this morning........we are exhausted!!!
The park was absolutely packed when we arrived at 9:30 and stayed pretty busy all throughout the night. We did not ride much since we had done that in the morning. Was a crazy fun night!!!
3 hours of sleep and now I am packing. ME picking us up at 11:35.
Was a great vacation, but I am ready for my own bed!!
