Sometimes people go overboard with them. I am not really into the guys who cover their entire bodies and neck and all that with tattoos, even though it is interesting to look at. I almost feel like saying, "What are you hiding?" But the right number of tattoos in the right locations can be very hot for a guy!

Most of my Vons delivery guys are not that hot, though. I have seen cuter guys delivering for Dominos! (I know Dominos is a bad word because you work in the place that serves the most awesome pizza - I wish I could try it! I LOVE good pizza! Dominos is basically cardboard with some sauce!)

Yeah, my friend Shawn (who you saw pictures of in the granny hat) is on a tattoo tear right now too. She started with one years ago, and all of a sudden, in the last year alone, I think she has gotten like three more! I think it is interesting when you know someone who has a tattoo for years and years, then you lose touch with them, see them again, and that old tattoo has been completely covered up with a new one. It is amazing how the artists can totally obliterate the old tattoo and make it into an all new one! That is talent!

Day Two:

(BTW, I hand painted our shirts and am IN LOVE WITH THEM!)


In the morning, we got some continental breakfast and got ready to go to the park. We went straight for Fantasyland and hit all of those rides before they got packed! It was a lot of fun taking pictures in line

(my fave picture, me & my dad)







After, we went on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. The line wasn’t too long; it was about 30 minutes.



After, we checked in for our priority seating at BB. We had PS at 11:50 and we checked in at 11:15. When I first got there, everyone was gathered in the lobby because they had just first opened. I talked to the hostess and apparently my PS was on the 13th. I asked if we could have a PARTY OF 13 not having the PS on the 13th. We were leaving on the 12th so there was NO way that would work out (it was the 11th on Saturday). We had already been through SO many speed bumps at this point and I was NOT in the mood for more. At first she said that she could get us in but we would have to be split in a table of 6 and a table of 5 (two people backed out on the trip). After seeing our faces and how upset we were, they fit us all in.




Most of my family had never eaten at BB, so it was a new experience for some of them I have pictures of the various food we ate, but I’m planning on posting it on the sticky for dining reviews ! Our waiter’s name was Kevin and he was awesome ! He really took care of us and I was so glad after almost having our PS not happening.

After lunch we headed towards DCA because the people who didn’t go to MTOTP didn’t get to enjoy the park. Before we left we went on Jungle Cruise. We ended up taking A LOT of stops because stragglers kept looking in stores for stuff. It was getting people frustrated but it was understandable because they had never been there before and were just soo excited to be there. We went straight to TOT. The line was 30 minutes. It was a lot shorter at MTOTP but it was fine because we always have fun in line !

(tickle fight!)

we're so INTENSE! (in-tents.. get it? )


After, we went to Screamin’ & the Orange Stinger. It was WAYYY to long of a wait for TSMM! By this time EVERYONE was exhausted to so we said ‘time to split up and do what you want to do’ so I stayed back and shopped with the youngins while the parents went back to rest. I finally got my ears !! I’ve never owned a pair and it was pretty exciting.



We finally got to the hotel around 4 and rested for about an hour and a half. It definitely wasn’t enough rest, but there were so many things we still wanted to see while we were there! We had Mc Donald’s for dinner just because its fast & cheap (ICK) and then headed towards DL. We went to Tomorrowland and waited about 35 minutes for Star Tours, then we went to Autopia and waited about 25 minutes. It was kind of busy that night! We tried to see how long Nemo was, but that was TOTALLY out of the question!



We all decided to wait for the Matterhorn. The wait was about 45 minutes, but it was too fun in line because we were all so tired that we were getting giddy and took ridiculous pictures. My fiancée and my cousin were taking pictures at the same time on purpose to get us in silly faces so I made obvious faces the whole time !! HAHA!





After we watched the fireworks! I was sooo excited for this because I brought my Nikon and tripod. We sat at the Rivers of America. disneyL0VE and TheAXIOM bought tigger tails while we kept their place. It was fun to eat while walking after the fireworks. Since we were already in New Orleans Square we went on Pirates again (it was the shortest line there!). While on Pirates everyone was falling asleep on the boat. Most of them left for the hotel while TheAXIOM, my younger sister-inlaw, mom, uncle and I stayed back until closing. We went on HMH again… SOOOOOO fun! Then walked back towards Main Street and took pictures along the way! That was fun for me That was the end of day two !!

The weather was PERFECT. It was an average of 74 degrees all three days. It did get kind of chilly on Saturday night, but it was fine just wearing a sweater.

It was actually pretty nice on Friday and relatively nice on Saturday. Sunday it was RIDICULOUS !!!! It took us like 35 minutes to walk from New Orleans Square to Toontown.

Day Three:

The final stretch !! I’ve been so damn busy in the past week (pardon my French!). Shyboy72 was in the emergency room today because he is not feeling well, so give him some pixie dust.

On our last day, I tried to get everyone to wake up early and we did a pretty good job because we were up and packed away out of our hotel rooms before the elders did ! We hung out in the patio area where people eat the continental breakfast until they were ready. We took pictures too






I knew we had to head for DCA to get on TSMM so that the people who didn’t get a chance to ride it got to. We were there about 20 minutes before official opening of the park and got in the queue for TSMM that wrapped around toward GRR. We took pictures here too haha





It was a funny experience because we were in front of Mr. Potato Head for a good amount of time and he singled out TheAXIOM .. “hey you with the plaid!” It was fun After, we went straight for California Screamin. Both were about a 15 min wait. SOOO worth it! Then we headed towards TOT and got on that twice in a row because the first time it didn’t take our picture HAHA!






To end DCA, we went on Monster’s (my fave).

Then we decked it for DL, but stopped to take a family photo at the traditional spot. Once that was done we passed all our park hoppers to TheAXIOM and he ran straight to Indie (which ended up being closed). We got in line for Nemo because we knew that would take a while. TheAXIOM went to Space Mountain but we would be done with the park by the time we could use the FPs. So I directed him to Roger Rabbit because the newbies HAD to go on that. The parents + Shyboy72 hung out and ate some burgers in Tomorrowland while we waited in line for like 45 minutes. We ate some frozen treats and french fries in line. We also took some funny videos that disneyL0VE uploaded on youtube.







After, we went to ToonTown. BTW, it was CRAZY PACKED on Sunday the 12th. I didn’t want to believe that Columbus Day would affect our trip, but let me tell you, IT DID. Once we got there, Roger was not running, but they said we could use our FPs any time in the day. It was kind of hot outside and kind of frustratingly packed. There was only one other ride I could think of that we should go on, so we headed toward Critter Country to go on Winnie the Pooh. We stopped at Big Thunder on the way there. Before going towards Critter Country we munched down on some Turkey legs and Corn Dogs.




Pooh was interesting because it was about a 20 minute wait. I’ve never been around for that! Everyone was pretty beat and disneyL0VE & TheAXIOM’s dad (my uncle) was already at DTD waiting for them. We were SOOO pressed for time. It was crazy ! After, we decked it for ToonTown to try one more time before heading out of the park. It took us like 30 minutes to get from Critter Country to ToonTown. It was CRAAAZY BUSINESSS!

We got on the ride, which was fun ! It was soo funny to hear Eeyore say “I can return it if you don’t want it.” Then left the park to do our shopping, but not before I got some shots of Disney Magic. I’m a graphic designer, so placing images on to layouts is a piece of cake and I did not want to try and use what the photopass people were using. So I made my own!






We shopped at the World of Disney for our souvenirs/gifts. I loooove the Villian hands in the store! They are too cool for school

After, we went to Denny’s for some dinner. I was so tired, I was falling asleep while chewing my food. We did SOOO much the whole weekend and I was beat.

The Shuttle Van guy was waiting for us while we were paying for our meal. We parted with my cousins the DISers and headed for SNA. While hanging out in the airport, my dad, uncle, two cousins, and fiancée went for the bar to wind down. My mom, fiancee’s sisters, and I relaxed at a nearby gate and reminisced about the weekend. On Saturday night I lost my voice and sounded like a 75 year old chain smoker. It was ridiculously funny. Everyone was laughing at me and yelling out my name because I sounded silly. My quote for the day was “I need a lozenge” which I stole off of Sean a CM running our service elevator on TOT. He was the BEST.

About 30 minutes before boarding, we got in a tired/giggly mood and we were cracking up about EVERYTHING. The other passengers waiting in the terminal were staring at us like we were crazy, and I wouldn’t blame them! The flight attendant checking us in said, “wow, I wanna go with you guys wherever you’re going!”

We all were tired/sleeping on the plane, then headed in our separate ways back to reality.

I had a ton of fun, and I know they did too! I looooved this year’s Halloween experience and I hope they think about getting together again for another magical Disney Adventure
