Love the photos, that little girl does look really scared on ToT! You sure do like ToT and RnR don't you I must be missing something really good, I called Jess over (my only hope of a coaster partner!) to show her how you're strapped into RnR and she's still undecided but will definately do ToT

Great installment as always. I wish I had thought to take pictures of the ride photos. There's always next time!

Thanks so much! Well, the only ride that you can currently transfer to your photopass is Test Track in Epcot. For the rest, I just took a picture of the monitor with my digital camera and saved it on my memory card. So it never actually got transferred to my photopass card.

But, getting a ton of pics on the photopass card IS the way to go! All in all, it’s much cheaper to get a TON of pictures on it, and buy the cd than buy each picture individually.

You get to help decide who wins the contest… Coming up in my next post…

I'm thinking we really do need to do that roadtrip - right DM?!
"Thelma & Louise, with a little Italian along for the ride"...

Can't wait for the "contest"!
Okay Renee--- Don’t kill me, but I’ve never even seen Thelma and Louise!!!!! Eeek! I’m in trouble now, huh??? =)

Wow! I’m glad you couldn’t tell! But really, I was totally stressed during those pictures! When I look at them, I can see the paranoia in my eyes! But I’m glad that you couldn’t tell =)

Especailly the newest ones. I can live with watching the orignals, but the new ones stink! Better you than me braving those crowds for SWW.

We are staying at the POP in 29 days Glad to hear that the transportation is good, especially because I have a 3 year old. Don't want to have to wait to long.

Can't wait to here more

Hi Janet!!!! Glad you hopped on over to my TR! We did have a GREAT trip, and I can’t believe it’s almost been a month since we went! Time flies. You are going to have such a great time at POP!!!! Let me know how it goes when you get back!

Thanks so much for reading!

Thank you so much… And I will agree with you that I am very animated…. Kinda spastic too, but animated, yes! Contest coming right up!!!

Thanks for continuing to read!!!!

Awww!!!! You’re probably there right now! I bet Beauty and the Beast is AMAZING to see!!!! I sure do love the one in MGM, so I could only imagine how great the one in Manhattan is!!!! Hope you’re having a great time!

Well, my TR is coming to an end, but not quite yet… We’ve still got this fun contest, then the rest of our day at MGM, then our travel, or non-travel, home, then makeup tips! I think it should last for at least one more week =) Plus I’m going to the beach next Thursday so I need to try to wrap up by then so I don’t keep yall waiting!

I promise you, if we get to go on another Disney trip anytime soon, I’ll write a TR.

Hey, I could always write a TR of our beach trip =) Just kidding! But, I’ll probably post pictures as to keep the thread going! That way we can all keep in touch!

Thanks so much for reading!!!!

We didn’t this year. The only thing we did was our Wishes cruise. Last year we did Fantasmic, but this year we didn’t feel the need to do it again. I’ve never seen Illuminations at Epcot though.

We’re up so early that by the night time, we’re zonked. =)

LOVED the new installments, and I can't wait to see what we're going to be 'voting' on. I'm kind of sad your trip is coming to a close Can you please plan another one soon so we all have something to look forward to?
Glad you’re caught up now! Thanks for still reading along! OHHH… I bet the Lion King was GREAT! I love watching shows!!!! That sounds like a lot of fun!!!

Voting installment, coming right up!

And I don’t know when I’m going back to WDW, but I am going to the beach next week so I can write a TR about that =) Hahahaha—I’d probably consist of:

We woke up, went to the beach.
Went in, ate lunch, then went to the pool.
Then for dinner, we went out to eat.
Come home.


Glad you liked the new installments—Thank you so much!!!!! Glad you’re here!

Wow!!!! I’m your VERY FIRST POST????!!!!!! Thank you so so so much for coming out of lurkdom and posting here!!!! Wahoo! I’m so glad you like the TR and pictures…. And Wow, did I actually give you decorating ideas???? What a compliment!!!! I totally steal ideas from other people! =)

I got my canisters at market… I have an LLC for my dog business, and business owners can get into market to buy products at discounted prices to sell in their stores. But around Baton Rouge, there’s a ton of stores that sell clear canisters… I actually even saw some at Wal-Mart before! So, you may just need to take a trip down here!

Happy Tuesday DIS friends!

Let’s pick up where we left off! So, we had ridden our favorites on Sunset Blvd. all morning long! And we were headed to the back of MGM to do a few old favorites and try some new experiences too.

First stop: Voyage of the Little Mermaid.

This was a new one for us. We enjoyed it--- It wasn’t AMAZING, but it was still good, and in the air conditioning, so that was a plus! But who knew that you get SOAKED in that show???? I promise you, the imagineers went a little crazy on the amount of water that “rains” on you during that production! It did make it really cool (both in temperature and in fun factor), and we did enjoy it. If you’ve never been here, I would recommend it if you have time, and if you’re okay getting a little wet!

After we walked out wet, we headed on over to The Magic of Disney Animation. This was brand new to us too, and man am I GLAD we did this! It was SO FUN!!!!! I wish we would have done it last year, and I wish we would have done it on an earlier day to MGM b/c we would have had several times to experience it. It was FABULOUS!

We walked in and the artist told us we’d be drawing Donald Duck today!

Meanwhile, my brain’s thinking,
“Yippe! I like Donald, but is my picture really going to come out looking like him???? Um, yeah, probably not!”

Ryan was pretty confident that his would be superb.

So, we got to drawing. The artist walks you step by step very slowly so you can follow along.

We were having so much fun!

And of course when we were done, we had to take a picture of our drawings…

Here’s where the game comes in.

You get to vote which one is better! I’m not telling you who’s is which until all the votes have been tallied!

So, will it be the left one or the right one????

I would post it as a poll, but it would mess up all of the posting that’s already gone on, so if you would just post any comments that you have and then “left” or right”… ohhh—and if you want, suggest a prize that you think the winner should receive!

OHHH—I can tell this is going to be so fun!!!!

So, vote, vote, vote--- all lurkers and regulars come out and post!!!!! Big stakes here friends!

Can’t wait to see which one wins!!!!!

Hi Courtney
I am a lurker and have been following along on this great ride.
You should be proud of yourself as this was a great TR. You are so polite and courteous to everyone and you respond to everyone as well. I wish you could post a video of you talking so we can hear your cute voice and accent. I have to let you know that you look like a very pretty Brittany Spears(when she is having a great day) and Ryan looks a little like Nick Lachey to me.
Anyway looking forward to whats left of this report and
(me)(DH)(DS12)(DS 9)

I can tell whose drawings are whose, but i'm going to the right. It is the better of the two. Loser has to pull weeds out of the landscaping for the rest of the summer, and winner get his/hers favorite dinner out.
