We didn't eat at either. We did have ADRs months ago for Artist Point, but decided not to go this time b/c we were already using 2 TS credits at Narcoosee's, and I wanted to go there alot more.
I have been to Whispering Canyon lots of times with my family, that's how I came to fall in love with WL, just going to eat there.

YAY!
I did the tree on my own...I found a thread months back that showed how to make those tree ornaments with styrofoam balls, it was SUCH a good idea I had to do it. I've had that little tree for years, in my room at my parents house so I decided we HAD to take it, I needed to decorate since we'd be there for Christmas. I'm so glad I did, it was so nice to come back to at night!

Thanks for reading! Hm, how strange. He gets comments all the time that he looks like the guy from Superbad and Knocked Up, can't think of the guys name. I'll have to tell him he has another twin somewhere!



Thank you everyone for reading! This is so fun, my first TR, I didn't know if anyone would read or not! We're busy this weekend cleaning and moving more of my stuff from my parent's house, but I'm going to try to get another installment up this weekend before I go back to classes on Monday!!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic Saturday!!!

Tuesday, December 11

We didn't set the alarm this morning, or all week actually. But I think I popped up out of the bed by 8 am just about everyday! Some days we didn't get in a huge hurry to get out, which is new for me, my family always was out early in the morning, and stayed out alllll day. We didn't enjoy this in May, so our plan was to take things slower and relax. That being said, I was ready to GO!!! We fell into a pattern of me taking the shower first, then I would eat my morning peanut butter crackers and apple juice out on the balcony while DH showered. That was one of my favorite parts of the trip I think...just sitting out there, first thing in the morning, watching everyone walking around, going to get breakfast, and hearing the horns on the boats starting to blow. I also noticed just about every morning, when they would switch on the music outside. It would be so peaceful, I could hear the water in the falls flowing, and ducks quacking, and then all of a sudden the music would come on. Anyway...this was how just about every morning would go. It would end with us making sure we had everything packed into the Baggallini, and me rushing DH out the door!

This was the only day we had no ADRs to make, so we had the whole day ahead of us and no real plans. Well...that's not entirely true. I got Tour Guide Mike months back, and am SO glad we did. We really did find that waits were unusually short, and it was just awesome. I'll totally be doing that again. So I used his best days, and we had plans to go to Magic Kingdom that morning, and then MGM sometime in the day, to catch Fantasmic that night.

So off we went!! We practically skipped down to the boat dock. It was a magnificent day, the sky was blue and the weather was beautiful. We got on the boat, it was one of the bigger ones with the big deck in front. There was the cutest family sitting in front of us, the dad and the son and daughter were in front of us, and the mom and another son on the other side. I guess the dad saw our “Just Married” pins, and he said something to his son about how shiny and nice DH's ring was. He asked how long we'd been married, and we said just 2 days. He was like, WOW, congratulations. Some of the other people on the front with us told us congratulations as well. He said something else about the ring and the marriage being shiny and new, and then asked his son if they should tell us the awful truth. It was very cute, and they talked to us the rest of the way to the MK. Eventually, we made our way around the bend and I could see the MK coming up.





There really is nothing like seeing it the first time on the trip. I get goosebumps, and a little teary everytime...



We got in through the gates pretty quickly, and stepped onto Main Street.



I always want to stop and take a ton of pictures and go in the shops, but I knew we'd be back, and I could tell it was fairly empty so we should take advantage and get on some rides! We did stop to take a Photopass picture, and were on our way!
It has always been almost a tradition for my family to start on the left in Adventureland, so we decided to start in Tommorowland, for the first time. We went right on Buzz Lightyear, NO wait. AWESOME! I LOVE this ride. It's funny, since the ride opened, we'd been probably 3 or 4 times, and I refused to ride it. I get motion sickness and can't do anything spinny...the teacups is my worst nightmare. Well after reading on here before our May trip, I figured it wasn't that bad. So we all went on it in May, and I LOVED it. We rode it like 4 times in a row that trip. It's crazy that all that time I was so terrified of it, and its one of my favorites now!! Anyway, DH kicked my butt as usual, I just never could get the hang of how to get the most points. So off that, we went to Carousel of Progress. We skipped this in May, and I had a feeling DH might like it. He likes educational stuff, so off we went. I must add, we were getting “Congratulations” left and right this morning. Very cool. Anyway...not surprising, DH LOVED this. He kept talking about it after we got off. Crazy. Then we had to do my favorite, the “Peoplemover”. I will call it that FOREVER. This is one of my most favorite pictures...




After we finished in Tommorowland we headed off to Mickey's Toontown through the “secret walkway”. I love this...there was no one back there, and I just enjoyed walking with my husband, on the first day of our trip, knowing we still had the whole week ahead of us.
We walked through Mickey's house, and took a few pictures, but it was pretty crowded so we hurried through.



We just kinda walked slowly, went through the gift shop, and headed toward Fantasyland.



We also missed out on Pooh in May, so DH really wanted to ride this. LOVE that ride. He cracked up at the bouncing with Tigger part. For a guy who tries to be Mr. Cool all the time, I just love seeing him get such a kick out of the most RANDOM things.




We also went on Snow White, another new one for DH.
Next was Mickey's Philharmagic. Its one of my favorites EVER. Love it, everytime. We got so lucky again, we walked up and there was no line, and they were still letting people in for the next show. SCORE!!! After that, we went on It's a Small World. Now, I used to get all offended when people talked crap about this ride. It's always been one of those MK traditions for me because its one of the few rides I actually remember riding when I was really little, but I think this trip I really got it. It is kinda lame, and boring, and I think I'm losing my fascination with it. It will always hold a special place in my heart, and I'll probably always ride it once every trip, for sentimental reasons. But, I was ready to get off! We went from there over to the Haunted Mansion. This is my most favorite ride, EVER. Now I was DYING to ride this, and I purposefully saved it for last, just because I love the anticipation. I had heard and seen about the renovations, and could not WAIT. Again, NO wait. We walked up and they were just shutting the doors, but we were in within five minutes. I was almost jumping up and down excited. And it did not disappoint. I noticed all the changes, the best were the new room with the staircases, AWESOME, and the new Madame Leota. SO COOL. I just love that ride.

After that we were getting hungry so we went to get some lunch...





Now, while stealing pictures off the food porn thread, I could NOT find a picture of what I had to eat. I don't know if it's new or something, but seriously, it was the best counter service food we had all week. It was a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich, which I'm not normally a fan of, but wow, it was good. DH got the pepperoni pizza, and it came with a side salad, which I ate half of, and gave him my chips. I also gave him the other half of my sandwich, he's my little human garbage disposal. This is when I began to realize that while this dining plan was very convenient...I liked just handing over our card..it was wayyyy too much food. We hardly ever get dessert, so that was new. DH got the chocolate cake, and I got the strawberry cheesecake thing. We both just managed a few bites. And that is a pet peeve with me, wasting food. But oh well, what can you do.








Around this time my mom called, just trying to make herself miserable and jealous by hearing how much fun we had. We talked to her for a little bit, I wanted to make sure my kitty was ok. After that we talked about what to do. We had gotten SO much done, it was just about 2 pm or so, and had done pretty much over half of the park. We were coming back the next day, so we decided to head over to MGM, so we'd have a few hours before Fantasmic.
Of course we had to figure out the most fun way to get there. So we rode the monorail. We were going to ride it to the Contemporary and ride the bus to MGM, but we somehow went up the wrong side, and went to the Express monorail directly to the TTC. Not a problem, they have busses too. Well, this was probably the longest line we encountered, waiting for that bus. Eventually it came though. We got to MGM, and I was so excited seeing all the decorations again.





Fantasmic wasn't until 6:30 so we had some time to play with. We went straight towards the Muppets, this was DH's FAVORITE ride in May. Along they way, we passed the Jedi Academy going on, so DH had to stop and take pictures.





He is OBSESSED with Star Wars.

This is from our May trip...




We also had to go in the store to see if there was anything he needed. He got a tshirt on sale in May there for like 9.99, but they didn't have anything that good, so we just went to the Muppets.



It was great as always. We got there towards the end of the preshow, which is the best part, but oh well.



We walked around some in the streets, saw some of the Osbourne lights. We talked about maybe seeing them after Fantasmic, if we weren't too tired. Then we headed towards The Great Movie Ride. I really think this was the longest ride wait we saw. It always is so long. After that we were a little tired, and decided to just head over towards the amphitheater and relax. We walked in a few stores, and took our time, just enjoying the atmosphere. We were just about to get our first dose of pixiedust for the week...


Well I NEED to get to bed, I was going to do the whole day but dang its taking awhile. I will try to get the rest up tommorow, or later this week!!! Thanks for reading!!!

I just love sitting out on the balcony in the mornings too! Hearing the boat horns really lets me know we're in WDW!

Well you also know how much I love getting to the MK! Especially riding the boat and you get that first view of the castle as you go past the Contemporary...

I still can't believe that not very many people use that "secret walkway"! Every time that we used it, we saw maybe one or two other families!

Wow, Fantasmic was at 6:30?! Well, I guess it was December HA. I'm just used to the 9:00 and 10:30 ones in July! I was so excited to read about it.....

and then you left us with a cliffhanger!

so great to read your report

We are coming to the WL for the first time this April, so I am very interested to hear about how you found housekeeping and the overall feel of the Resort. Our two DKs insisted on a bunkbed room, so they are just so jazzed. Cannot wait to hear more!

great update and pics. that boat ride looked so relaxing. I can understand the Star Wars thing with your dh, it is a great movie. The Great Movie Ride I do not care for, too slow for me.
Looking forward to more.

After you posted your last update I went through our pictures to see if we might have gone to Fantasmic on the same night, but I looked and we went the night after you.

Thanks so much!! I think the first day was the best, just because it's the first day and just so exciting.
Thanks for reading!

Yup, he gets that ALL the time. It's pretty funny. Not so much now b/c his hair is shorter, but even still. I don't see it too much, but with longer hair maybe. still, we will be out somewhere and young kids say it ALL the time. hilarious.

awww, that's so sweet that you thought about me! It was BEAUTIFUL, we were so lucky with weather too, I think it only rained once while we were there, during the day anyway. BEAUTIFUL, December is my favorite time to go. I need to get on your TR!

aah, I would give just about anything to be back there right now, sitting on our balcony. gah.

oh and the boat, was DH's FAVORITE thing, I swear, at first everytime we'd be getting ready to go somewhere he'd ask if we were taking the boat. Being a newbie, he didn't get that everything wasn't connected by boat. too funny.

The walkway is AWESOME, I love that there isn't anyone there, and by the end of the week, being surrounded by people at all times, we LOVED it more.

Yeah its weird the times being so early for things, and earlier closing times. It was cool though b/c we got to spend more time at DTD and WL at the pool and stuff.

Thanks for reading! I'm going to try to update again later today!

Oh my gosh, you are going to LOVE IT! The whole resort is just awesome. Transportation was great, we found it quicker to take the boat to the Contemporary and ride the monorail when that is possible, but the busses aren't awful, seemed like DTD and AKL were the worst as far as waits.
Housekeeping was GREAT, we got towel animals three times, and they did turndown service every other night or so, and we never even requested it. We always had plenty of towels and things, it was just great. I would stay there again in a heartbeat! LOVED it. I can't wait to hear about your trip!

Oh we loved the boat, SO much. I've never actually seen Star Wars, SHAME, I know. But DH is obsessed. Thanks for reading!

I kept looking out for you guys, I didn't know where you'd be but we went to the Contemporary SO many times, and I saw SO many bride and groom ears, but I never saw you guys, so strange. AND, we saw one particular couple with the ears many times that week, it was so strange...




Thanks for reading everyone!!! I'm going to try to get the next installment up before I go to class tonight!!

We just took our time walking up towards the theater for Fantasmic, went in some of the shops down Sunset, and just relaxed some. We had about 2 hours or so until showtime, and were debating on what to do for dinner. Neither of us was hungry, again, this is where the DP was showing itself to be way too much food for us. We had an extra TS credit, because we didn't use our ADR the night before at Wolfgang Puck (we were ready to go swimming, and just not hungry enough to go that night). So, we could use that credit, or just pay OOP for a CS. We usually just get a hotdog and popcorn or something at Fantasmic, but we just didn't think we'd be ready to eat then. And me, being the obsessive planner, was trying to think of what to do. We just decided to wing it, and figure it out later.

I was getting thirsty though, and had seen a few people carrying those slushy lemonade things, so we stopped to get one. DH also picked up a Powerade, and a Coke for us to share later at the show. When we got to the front of the line to order, the girl working was being all sweet, telling us congratulations and asking how long we'd been married, and if we had a Disney wedding. When DH got his money out to pay, she just shook her head and said “Congratulations” again. I figured it out quicker than DH, he said something about paying for the 2 bottled drinks too, but she just shook her head again and repeated, congratulations. We both said thank you and I told her how sweet she was, and we went to find a table. Our first dose of pixiedust!!! It was so nice, and so unexpected. I'd heard that people sometimes got things like that, but we weren't wearing the ears, just our buttons, and I didn't expect anything. Speaking of that...DH and I are both shy people, and don't like a lot of extra attention. Well earlier in the day we'd noticed other honeymoon couples with the bride and groom ears getting called out and stuff, things that we wouldn't have enjoyed. So, we decided not to wear them. We hadn't bought my bride ears yet, although we did get them later b/c I wanted to have them. And DH had a "Groom" baseballcap, but just decided not to wear it. So, just in case anyone was wondering if we wore them...no.

We really just wanted to relax, and enjoy our first trip alone together, without having a lot of extra attention. And we did. So anyway. We found a shaded table to sit at across from Fantasmic, and just sat and talked for about an hour or so. One of my favorite things to do is people watch, and we have always stayed on the go at Disney, so I have never had the luxury of just sitting and watching everything, and taking in all the atmosphere. It was another one of my favorite moments of the trip.

A little less than a hour before the show we decided to go ahead and walk up to the theater. This was the first time we didn't wait with the herd of cattle into the show. Which was nice, but we didn't get right in the middle, which is where I've always sat. Not big deal though, we were just in the next section to the left, good seats, except for the big pole in front of us. But again, not biggie, it's still my favorite show EVER. It was getting chilly, and I SO wished I had a sweatshirt or just a long sleeved tshirt to put on. It was so hot, I wore tank tops everyday, but by nighttime it was cool enough for at least a long sleeved shirt. Anyway, the show was awesome as usual, I tear up almost everytime, I just love it.












Well before the show we were discussing doing some resort hopping after Fantasmic. I LOVE doing that, and I wanted DH to see more. We weren't really in the mood to see the Obsourne lights that night, it was just cold and we were ready to leave. We planned on coming back anyway. I suggested going to Pop Century, I love the theming, I stayed there a few years ago with friends, and had told DH if we wanted to come back on a budget, that's the place to stay. And the food court is huge so I knew we could find dinner there. Well then HE, my non planning, spontaneous husband, who knows nothing about Disney, actually made a great suggestion. “How about going to Ft. Wilderness at eating at the buffet there?”. Whaaaat??? You actually have an interested suggestion??? OK!!!

Ft. Wilderness holds a special place in my heart. My first trip to Disney, when I was 3, was actually at the Buena Vista Palace. But I don't really remember it. My first REAL memories are at the campground. My parents have always had a camper, and that's where we always stayed, for the longest time. I remember walking around there, and riding the boats, and going to the campfire at night, and swimming...its just so special. And that's where we stayed in May with my parents. DH LOVED Trail's End...he's not a fancy food guy at all, just plain stuff, he's all about it. So that's what we did.

We headed out of Fantasmic, and waited for about 30 min for a Ft. Wilderness bus. We got off right down from Trail's End and walked up, they gave us a buzzer and we only waited about 10 min. That's what I love about it too, it's almost never busy. And it's SO good.

Few pictures...





We enjoyed sitting out on the porch in the chairs, the exact same chairs we sat in our last trip. There were 2 bunnies jumping around out in the middle of the street in the grass, and kids playing on the playground. I loved it. After we ate we walked down the boat dock and waited just a few minutes for the bus across to WL. We ran up to the room to get our bathing suits on and grab our mug and went swimming again. We just loved the pool there, at night there were usually very few people in the pool, and it was just warm enough to swim in, even though it was chillier at night. We walked down to the beach to see the Electrical Water Parade at 9:30, and layed in the beach chairs together. Again, one of my favorite moments of the trip. I enjoyed those quiet, relaxing moments so much more this time, not just rushing around from place to place. So nice. We stayed down there until prob 11 or so, just swimming in the pool, visiting the hot tub, and relaxing. We stopped by The Fork for a refill on the hot chocolate before heading back upstairs for a shower and bed. And I did bring a bottle of my favorite wine, White Zinfandel, so it's possible that I had a glass before bed as well...and then off to bed, ready for our next day of fun, at Epcot, and MK again.

I am so staying at WL next time I go. It sounds beautiful. DH and I did go over there to get pics in the lobby but I want to stay there. DH and I thought about staying there for our honeymoon but then we decided that the resort looks too much like winter and we left a foot of snow so we decided to stay at CR. Good installment.

Your pictures came out great. Reading your trip report makes me feel just like I'm there too. We love WL and I totally can relate to those nice and quiet times you have at Disney...its nice to stop and be able to catch your breath and just take everything in. Sounds like it was the perfect ending to a perfect day!
