I stepped onto the grass on the other side; it wasn't any greener, just different.......A candle loses nothing of its light by lighting another candle......I wasn't born a princess, but if the tiara fits......

Thanks Amy! I KNEW someone would understand!! You always see pics of the rooms but never the bathrooms

I just learned yesterday! Instead of hitting the quote button, hit the " one for each of the posts you want to quote. Then hit the reply and they will all be there. You can then go in and type comments under each one if you want to. Very handy dandy little trick!

Crystal Palace~~

Once we get over the awe of Cinderella's castle...ok, once my DMIL and I get over the awe of the castle ....HEY it IS beautiful, and changes colors We decide to find our way to Crystal Palace first to check out the line....and BOY was it LONGGGG. We were hoping to get in early, but that was NOT happening, so we explore some areas around the restaurant. Just walking around, looking at the map, plotting what we will try to get in after dinner. We do head back to CP about 9 pm or shortly thereafter and only have to wait a few minutes after letting them know our party was there. Once inside.....BEAUTIFUL!
This was at the entrance, done in silk flower floral designs;






Oh look, here comes Piglet!!





and Eeyore!! I just LOVE Eeyore

and that Tigger is a HAM!!!

And well, WHO doesn't love POOH??







After dinner we rode the Alladin's Magic Carpet, Snow White's Scarry Adventure, Its A Small World and Mickey Mouse's Philharmonic 3D, which was awesome!....then to bed for a big day at Animal Kingdom.

Animals, Animals, EVERYWHERE!!

I have to say, the animals and the settings were gorgeous!! Not to mention you trek through the land with a hysterical busdriver! We were on the lookout for poachers!!

Nice shot!!









Trees that grow upsidedown!!









Look, PUMBAA!!!!

and at this point, I start humming the Lion King song







whooooaaaa the poachers camp!!



sorry this one is so dark, but the stripes are beautiful!!





Thats it for tonight....but tomorrow....which way to see DeVine??? More Animal Kingdome picaroonies

and can NOT wait for Hollywood Studios.....its Extra Magic Hours tonight and we have ressies at SCI FI Dinner Theater!!
Hey, I thought there weren't anymore remnants of Fay :

Will I find the beautiful DeVine? Did Fay decide to show out a bit more? And will we make it to SCI FI and will the boys LOVE It as much as I did?
