Thank you! My Minnie taught me a valuable lesson regarding the SB costume. I tried to talk her into being Belle because Minnies coloring is more like Belle than SB. Minnie really wanted to be SB and we got the Disney Store Halloween costume catalog. Well in the catalog a beautiful little black girl is dressed as SB and my Minnie tells me, "You see mama, all little girls can be SB." How right she was... lesson taught by a child.
Please come visit *our* park! I give my limey friends an open invitation to tourguide Disneyland Mama!

I forgot to ask if you met any other Dis-ers???

DDs are both interested in doing BBB. We'll probably not do the full princess package, but I'm saying that now without those big eyes staring at me and the pouty lower lip thrust out just so. Okay, I'm a cream puff, but DW may put her foot down on it (or agree only if she can have her own appointment ). I think DS and I may visit the Main Street barber shop.

In any case, I'm looking forward to your next installment. Thanks for posting.
Thanks!!!
I say, just do it. At least once, the full package, that is. It's something they'll never forget. Take DW, too. I saw a few of "us" gettting their hair done. It's fun!
Thanks for reading!!

**Someone really needs to show me how to do mulitple quotes in one post**

Seriously?? How funny. You know, I realized I had no dis-apparel on when we walked around the resort. My purse, backpack and stroller had LGMHPC's, but I didn't walk around with them at the resort! Did you run into any other dis-ers?

Day 4: MK and MGM

I was wide awake at 7 am. You know, I tried to get a wake up call, but when I called the line, it just rang and rang. Oh well, I used my cell phones alarm clock and I have lots of Disney music downloaded onto it. I got myself all ready and woke the kidlets at 7:30am. They dressed and we headed to the Kona Coffee bar for our usual. The CM remembered us from the previous days and she rang us up with our usual grub. I took the bag and *plop* I dropped Joe's croissant. Oops, sorry, Joe! Ok, so no one saw... do I just pick it up, dust it off, and throw it in the bag? Or do I do the right thing and buy another one? My conscience got the best of me, so I told our friend behind the coffee bar and she gave me a new one.... free of charge! I love her for that! I let Nini and Waldo know we are leaving for MK at 8:30 so be at the Monorail, or be left behind. You know they started calling me "Disney Nazi" The noyve!
Waldo and Nini make it to the monorail in time and we're off to MK. We arrive at 8:50 to see the little opening show.



I got all misty eyed. Thank goodness for my big Jackie-O sunglasses! We go down Main Street and Nini wants to take a photo of us.


Notice Waldo doesn't make it to the photo op in time, he's just off to the left. Well, that's because he wandered.
We head over to Frontierland only to find another rope. Argggg! We wait patiently as I'm already starting to *glisten*. The rope drops and where are the people?? We parade on over to the BTMRR and I ask for a baby swap. The CM looks at me like I have 3 heads. He says to me, you're not going to need one. Okey dokey, Mr. CM. Walt, Joe and I proceed thru the long, long, long queue. I can't imagine standing in this line. We jump on the wildest ride in the wilderness. It's great! Much different that DLR, longer I think and maybe faster? We love MK version better.



We exit and let Nini and Waldo ride. We tell Walt to watch the kidlets, Joe and I want to go on Splash. We walk thru this very long queue. What's up with the long queues? We board the log thingy. Already different. At DLR you straddle the seat and the boat only holds a max of 7 people. I already love this ride! It's way longer in MK than in DLR. I'm happy! We exit the ride and meet up with our group. We decide we want to hit Haunted Mansion today. Nini and Waldo go first this time. We sit with the kidlets at the entrance and watch all the mutant bugs flying around. We notice a family looking for their personal stroller. The woman starts yelling at the CM standing near the stroller parking asking him where he put her stroller. He says he didn't move her stroller. She tells him it was right there and now it's gone. Apparently, someone stole/accidently took her stroller. The CM asks if she would like him to call security and she says no and storms off. Weird. Weird people. I do notice alot of personal stroller with nothing personal on them. I put my laminated MH's and even put a sticker on my strollers with my info on them.
Nini and Waldo exit the ride and now it's our turn. Nini and Waldo decide to take the kiddies to Fantasyland. Ok, well meet you there, I say. I know we're going to lose Waldo and he has my babies.....
Walt, Joe and I ride HM... I love this ride, too! I love the "look" of the mansion. It's soooo much cooler than our Colonial style and MK's is more gothic looking. I likey the gothic look. I'm trying to look at the grave yard and take photos when the CM working the door tell me to "hurry up". I look at Joe and we start laughing at the inside joke. Side Note: Joe and I were looking to purchase a twin mattress for Minnies new twin bed. We went to this mattress factory in a nearby town and were told by the salesman/owner that they only accepted cash. Well, I had a credit card and a check book. I told him if he wanted cash, I'd have to go to the bank and come back. So he tells me, "Ok, but I close in 5 minutes so HURRY UP!" with his cute little accent. Well, it's funny to Joe and I. Nice sales skills Mr. Mattress Man! Ok, so I like the outside of MK HM, and the ride seems scarier and darker than DLR, but the attic scene is way better at DLR. They just changed it and it's really cool! I won't spoil it... you'll just have to come to Cali and visit me!
More tomorrow... I'm tired! Off to bed now.....

I got misty eyed watching the footage online of the MK opening show. I know...that's so sad! I can't imagine how bad it would be for me to be there in person. I feel ya! I have never been lucky to see the opening show. My goal is to try to see it this November when we're there! There's just so much love there for the most magical place on Earth! Loving your report and all your photos!

I did meet some other DISers. I ran into one at Epcot, we were both waiting to be seated at Le Cellier. Then again later that afternoon, someone else noticed my Mickey at Epcot. I also saw another mickey head fanatic at the Boardwalk one night. Dressed in a lime green shirt, lime green crocs and must have had a dozen mickeys. I didn't get a chance to talk to her as we were both watching a street performer, and then she disappeared. So, if it was someone reading this...hello!!! Hope you enjoyed the street performer as much as we did, but I am guessing that you did, as I think it was someone in your group that got to throw the bananas!

That's a sweet story! I love that so many kids these days are "color" blind! DDs school has such a diverse population that it is all "normal" - DD is also a true believer of what is on the inside - as we both get judged not by our ethnicity but our size! Which seems to still be okay!

OKAY DISers - from here on out... I want everyone to let me know whey you are going to be in WDW - I know that DD and I have to have passed paths with MANY of you since we are usually in a park at least once a week!!! I want itineraries!!!! LOL!!!! I'm just not a great one to walk up to folks - I guess I should be a better ambassodor! LIME GREEN is a very popular color even for non-Dissers at Disney I suspect!

I had a LGMH on my camera bag during MNSSHP - but no one noticed it..... I guess I need something bigger!!!

I think I may have just blown it off and stuck it in the bag...you know about the 15 sec rule?!?

I have never seen the opening show and was unaware of it up until a few months ago! Thanks DIS-ers!

If you bring a personal stroller, I would think you should put something on it to "mark" it! How easy it would be to "take" the wrong stroller!

Can't wait for more...hurry up and post...please?!?

The former teacher in me pays more attention to the children around me than the adults plus my DD is also 4 and drawn to anyone her size...so when I saw the pics of your DD I do remember seeing her as we walked through the resort, because I remember thinking to myself how pretty she is. So at some point we must have passed each other ..lol...I think next time I will just tape a LGMH to my forehead

Day 4 Continued

Last I left off Joe, Walt and I were getting off the HM and we now go in search of Waldo and co. I know they are in Fantasyland somewhere. What I don't realize is that Fantasyland spans almost the length of the park. We enter FL thru the little tunnel near HM and see the stroller parking area. We do a quick look for our 2 strollers. Nope, not there. So we figure they went further into FL. We walk thru FL all the way to the Mad Tea Party. No Waldo sightings. I decide to try to call them on their cell phone. Alas, Waldos bad hearing and the noise of whatever ride they are on, prevents them from hearing the phone ringing. Hello? Ever heard of vibrate mode??? We finally just stop running around and park ourselves in front of the Peter Pan ride. We wait, and wait and then Walt points them out getting off IASW. I guess they rode it twice, since there was no wait. We remember we have skipped one of our *must do/see* items and head for Philharmagic. They had just opened the doors for the next show so we made it in. Oh, how lovely! I just couldn't stop gushing over this show. It was great. We NEED this at DLR. Take out Pinocchio, please! Next I really wanted to ride the People Mover, since I didn't get to on our previous MK day. Again, loved it! I sure miss it at DLR!

I'd heard about the Carossel of Progress, so we decided to hit that next. Not before a quick pic with Stitch, again. Minnie does love Stitch!

We had 11:30 ADR's for CP, and we it was now 11:00am. CoP was perfect timing. Walt decided to sit this one out. Too bad. I thought it was cute. I don't ever remember seeing this in DLR. It's a great big beautiful tomorrow.....
We head over to CP, we're running a little late and it's PACKED! There's a huge line to check in and I'm thinking we're going to wait a while. I get us checked in and we score a bench on the porch so Minnie can watch Cinderellabration, which has just started. We get comfy and our buzzer goes off.

Cool! We're seated and our server gives us the whole buffet/character spiel. It was really cute. Minnie took photos with Tigger, Pooh, Piglet and Eeyore. EE got in there a few times.

She even participated in the parade. It was fun for her.

I have to comment on the food. All the salads were really yummy and fresh. I loved the salmon, I couldn't get enough of it.
Bribbing Little EE with soda, so he'll sit and eat... always works!
After lunch we decide we're feeling pretty good and decide to head back to the room for a quick rest and then head to MGM.
It's about 1 pm and we decide to leave for MGM at 2:45pm. We head out to the bus stop and boom the first bus to arrive is... MGM! Whoo hoo!

Up next.... my $20.00 mistake and who's kicking me?

Awww... thanks! How sweet.
I did notice we were the only brown folks in the whole resort, so we weren't easy to miss!
