Continued...

















And me..the big ol' sap always gets teary eyed when the beast dies...but then when he comes back to life...I get goosebumps as Belle realizes it's still him:







After the show, we stopped and looked at some of the shops along that area. We went in the home store and found some new kitchen stuff we wanted and had that sent back to the room! I love being able to do that instead of having to carry everything with us the rest of the day!

Eventually, we headed back to TSM to use our fast passes!



I was so excited to finally ride this! Even fast passes had a little bit of a wait, so we took pictures while in line:





The ride was awesome!!!! We couldn't wait to do it again when we came back for EMH! We still had some time before we needed to head to the Poly, so we rode the Great Movie Ride. By the time we got off, it was time to start heading to the Poly bus stop.





We always get there a bit early so we can look around and explore the place. Even though we've been there so many times we know our way around with our eyes closed. I had heard that they opened a new sushi bar over by Kona Cafe, so I had to get some while we waited for our buzzer to go off at Ohana. Sis doesn't like it so much :



I went to the bathroom in the ones by Ohana and couldn't help but remember reading a post of someone washing their hands in the sink next to Kelly Ripa. After we ate all that yummy food, can you guess where we went? Yep, the MK again. Can you tell it's our favorite?!

You can kinda tell, but this is the Contemporary from the monorail on our way to the MK:



Here goes dad in the no bag entrance:



And of course we had a wonderful night. I can't tell you all that we did.

Up next: AK

Isn't Toy Story Mania so much fun?! Part of what makes it enjoyable is seeing all the stuff in the queue area.

Nice pictures of the Beauty and the Beast show...I haven't seen that in ages!

Hey, just joining your report, can't believe I am so late

I haven't caught up yet but wanted to comment whilst I still remembered so you may get a few consecutive posts by me commenting. First off I am so glad you managed to go on this trip, I know how good Disney can be for forgetting about everyday life and just having a blast, I hope it helped you.

First off how long is the drive for you, it seems to be forever. You must have the patience of a saint, I get bored in the car after a couple of hours. Can I ask what hotel you stay in in Nashville, we are looking to go there this year along with Pigeon Forge and Atlanta and are looking into hotels to stay in. From Nashville to Georgia, where exactly do you drive through, you mentioned mountains? And how long is the drive? Sorry for all the questions I am just really interested in this area, especially as we plan to visit soon. Anyway it sounds like your road trip to Disney is a lot of fun, I wish I could just drive there.

OKW looks really nice. We have driven up the river to there on a boat a couple of times and it looks really tropical and laid back, just like the real thing. I must add it to my list to stay one day, hopefully when I can convince DBF to buy into DVC . Day one looks great, looking forward to reading the rest

I love your Disney Traditions, they are so cute. I have never seen those over here before, I will have to keep an eye out for them when I am there. I am not suppose to be collecting them as I collect WDCC which costs far to much as it is, but my Grandad buys them for me, and they are just too cute.

I love your Disney outfits, they are so cute. And your old pictures are so nice to look at, I bet they bring back some lovely memories. It looks like you had a great first day, I love Chef Mickeys its so fun. And your pictures in the ears are great, you guys have some lovely traditions. I really like the people mover too but unfortunately its closed when we go along with Space Mountain, one of my favorites.

Day 2 sounds great. For the past 2 trips we have spent our first whole day at DTD, we find it a great way to start the holiday, shopping and relaxing. And I am glad to hear good reviews about Tony's, we really want to try it. Although we haven't scheduled it in on our itinerary yet I hope we may make a sneaky visit.

Ok, off to read some more.

TSM is SO much fun! I can't wait to get B/F on it!

I heard rumors that Beauty and the Beast is closing...

Geeze...1992? That's a long time ago!

The sushi bar was great! They had little tables around the area if you wanted to dine there, but we wanted to move closer to Ohana and sit in the big comfy chairs/couches.

Well...I just mapquested to see the exact distance from my house to Old Key West..and it's: 19 hours and 17 minutes and 1225 miles! The car ride isn't too bad. We have a built-in dvd player so we watch a ton of Disney movies!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Nashville. It's not too far from Opryland Mall. I went to Pigeon Forge in 2005 with my B/F and his family! You will love it there! It's gorgeous and so laid back. From Nashville to Georgia, we drove through the end of the Appalachian Mountains. I just also mapquested to see the distance from Nashville to Atlanta: 4 hours and 2 minutes and 249.27 miles!

I'm glad you like my outfits, old pictures, and our traditional pics!

I'm so sad that the people mover and Space are going to be closed when we go this June!

Wow thats a long drive. Its strange to think even though you live so much closer it actually takes me less time to get there, and I have to travel over the Atlantic too. And in-car DVD's are life savers aren't they, we got some for our trip last year and watched loads of cheesy movies like Bring it On, Honey and Step Up, DBF was not too impressed

Oh we do love it in PF. We went for my Mum's 50th last August and stayed in a cabin in the mountains. We loved it so much we just have to go back again this August. In fact DBF and I would love to move there. So far I would love to stay in the Galord Opryland but we will have to see once we have priced up flights and the cabin and car etc. Driving through the Appalachian mountains sounds great, was it really nice scenery. We plan to go from PF to Nashville and back to Georgia but will probably go via Lynchburg and maybe Huntsville so don't know if we will go through the mountains. I guess I need to do some more research

So my school schedule is Mondays 8:30-1, Tuesdays 5:30pm-8 and Wednesdays 8:30-1 and 5:30-8...the Tuesday night class is literally 5 mins from my house though because the college I'm going to has a campus there but it's the smaller campus. So, all my classes except that one are farther away. I'll work Tues, Thurs, Fri and Sat all day. Here's the short version of what I'm doing this semester...because I was a poli sci and psych major as an undergrad and then decided after I graduated I wanted to do social studies ed, I am deficient in history classes because I never had to take them in my undergrad studies. Any history type classes I needed were satisfied by my poli sci classes but that doesn't work for social studies ed so now this semester I'm taking 4 undergrad history classes and 1 economics class to get me caught up. I'm taking undergrad credits, even though I have my degree. Annoying. I always have to be indecisive I start on the 26th. What classes are you taking and what's your sched like?

Great pics from DHS. I can't wait to ride TSMM! Just the queue area gets me excited. And I can't wait to see B&tB, idk if I've ever seen it before!

I love those movies! One time on ABC Family channel not too long ago, they had a Bring It On marathon of all the Bring It On movies! Me and B/F's little sister watched them all! He was so annoyed.

I'll take pictures of the ones I have and post them I don't mind except for one because its on my bootay I have a picture of that one that I'll PM to you if you want it, you CAN'T tell its my bootay at ALL I swear but I don't wanna risk posting it and getting banned from the DIS, I would be so sad! Mine aren't very sentimental though. I have one on my lower neck/upper back right where it sounds like you want yours. Mine's of my zodiac symbol, Leo.

I took five classes last semester too. It's how many I have to take in order to be a full time student for our insurance. Haha, just PM me all your tattoos! I don't want you getting banned either!

I took 6 classes last semester (Spring semester 08) which made me able to graduate early. This semester is 5 classes for me too. Ugh I just have to be a full time student for my parents insurance. For the last 4 months I've had no insurance since I haven't been in school so I can't wait to go back just to have health insurance again! I'll take those tat pics later What are you up to this weekend?

Can't wait

Well right now I'm waiting for B/F to get off work...then we are going out to eat and to a movie. I think we're gonna go see "Yes Man". I want to go see "Bride Wars" but B/F obviously said no.
