Hey everyone!

Thank you for the birthday wishes! It was a great birthday!

I will try to get pictures uploaded today and do the first update of my birthday TR! Unfortunately we really didn't get pictures of ourselves this trip but have tons of pictures of everything else!

Eek it's been almost a month since we updated! My apologies! With the WDW trip, school and work this month has been crazy! But I figured while I waited for everyone to find the new TR I would update here!

After our fun in Toontown I had the bright idea that we should take the train around the park. It would quickly become a theme this trip that we should not listen to any suggestions I had! If I chose a ride the line was too long, if I wanted to go look at a certain part of the park that side was the busiest and so on. This was the second time this happened today the first being the longer than posted line at Roger Rabbit.

We got in line behind one family and the mother and daughter looked like June and Honey Boo Boo. The family behind us had two daughters close in age. I swear I have never heard more complaining and crying in a line before! It drove us nuts! Honey Boo Boo looked about 5 or 6 and would roll around on the ground when someone wasn't holding her. The wait seemed ridiculously long as well which did not help our moods any!

Finally seated on the train we got to see the diorama I was excited about!



Instead of being able to look out both sides of the train like at WDW this train only opens to one side.




The diorama was much bigger than I expected it to be!

Our final destination was Frontierland to check out the Long Lost Friends Weekend area!



When we arrived they were just starting the meet and greets.



They had a lot of characters to choose from!

The area was set up in the Big Thunder Jamboree which is a counter service/concert area.



Our first line of the day was Pinocchio





Although we did want to see these three the line was insane!



Throughout the meet and greet time they had their stage show going on which was a lot of fun to see and had been on my mom's DL bucket list.



It was really cool seeing Hades out and about!



Our second line was for Merlin. He is one of my dad's all time favorite Disney characters! Now I don't know if we have told you all this story but when I was 5 and we went to Disney my grandma and I were watching the Sword in the Stone Ceremony they used to have. My parents were out looking for popcorn for my mom. Well lo and behold I was chosen to pull the sword out of the stone! It was very cool and I got a medal for having done it. No pictures though since my parents had the camera. While waiting in line my mom and I were talking about me pulling the sword out of the stone and Merlin's friend must have had some awesome ears because



He remembered me!



He asked me if he knew me and that I looked very familiar. Then said once a queen always a queen!



Then my parents jumped in to cast some spells



It was a very fun meet! Our next line was for the hottest guy in the jungle!



While waiting we also saw



The Robin Hood gang.

It was a really fun time but we saw some weird things. There were tons of CMs (off duty) in line and they were all Disney bounding. Disney bounding is when you wear regular clothes that would match a characters outfit. Well in DL this fad is huge and there were a lot of weird costumes. Men dressed like Jane from Tarzan and stuff like that. I am glad to say this hasn't caught on as much at WDW because it was a little weird in some cases.


After our meet and greets we headed back to the hotel to rest up for the parade! I will let my mom tell you all about it!

Good to know!
So if we should ever meet up at a DISmeet or something, I'll ignore you completely and save myself a ton of aggravation.

Hah!
You think that's bad??

I have two teenage daughters and when we're in line, all you hear is whining and complaining and carrying-on!



But then they tell me to stop and I usually settle down after a bit.
