Great report so far... can't wait to read more...
Wow!! You have been reading for a long time! That picture of Sawyer and Prince Charming is still one of my all-time favorites. It still makes me go into a giggle fit every time I see it!

Thanks for commenting and letting me know you're there!

That is so neat that the CM just handed Sawyer that sword on Peter Pan. My DD would have flipped for one too...Peter Pan has been her favorite since she was about two.

Love Tessa's new ears....so cute!!!

Now I hope you are up late working on the next installment of your lovely TR..if not, hurry up will ya!!

Ohhh and I have to say that you are right, your Mom is just adorable too!!
If your daughter's name was Tessa, I'd work out a deal with you. It's not a real good school outfit and I don't know when she's going to wear it again. Too bad I embroidered her name on it!

I don't know if they do it every day or not, but it looked like she had about 20 swords to hand out first thing in the morning. It was such a magical moment (it would have been even better if Sawyer wasn't crying).

I was actually sleeping last night! I can't stay up until 1:30am every night like my sister does! I only do that when I've got too much on my mind to sleep!

I don't really care for it either, and....





I don't like the Pooh ride either.

There, I said it!

I hate that there are so many "non-themed" spaces. I don't want to think I'm on a ride, I want to think I'm in the 100Acre Woods! I will never for the life of me understand why there is ALWAYS such a long line for that ride at Disney World!

I do however, LOVE the Peter Pan ride,which I rode a total of ZERO times on this last trip.
Somehow though, I think we ended up riding Pooh at least three!

I thought this would be a good place to add some of my photopass pictures!



I warned you that they were dorky! I always feel SO stupid when they tell me to do this pose.


This was my favorite one. Tessa said she didn't see Tinkerbell in her hand. We told her that she flew away so fast, that only the camera could see her.


I love this with the decoration! I believe this is where Tessa was telling her "I've been waiting 5 years to meet you!"



The famous kiss!!

I am just in tears over the story of the older woman and her daughter! It was so beautiful and thank you for including this in your report. I love all the photos and the photopass ones are cute.

Thanks for posting the trip report.

I almost feel guilty alot because I NEVER put our names on anything for this reason! I did add them to Dallas' family shirt this time though!

I love the photopass pictures. Hmm, I think I saw those somewhere before. BTW, I ordered it.

I don't like doing the dorky poses either!

I love the pooh ride at Disneyland! The line is all outside and feels very 100 acre-woodsy.

Cute photopass photos Heather! I really love the one of Belle kissing Sawyer! His little face is so cute!

Here is the info on the Mermaid ride from the Feb. 19 Passporter newsletter: (an article by Cheryl Pendry)


Some of the most radical changes will be made to Paradise Pier and the second phase of those changes have already begun, with the closure of Golden Dreams. Previously home to a stirring film history of California, this is now making way for a new Little Mermaid dark ride, due to open in 2011. I can't wait to see this, as the concept drawings looked quite something.


I want to go to Disneyland just to see the plans for the California Adventure update! The last time I was there, there was A LINE just to see the PLANS!

I don't usually put Tessa's name on things, but she was getting jealous that the Wish kids got their names on stuff, but she didn't!

Let's Shoot Grandma! MUWHAHAHAHA!!

When we stepped outside of Crystal Palace, I instantly noticed that it had gotten warmer. It certainly wasn't WARM, but it was warm-ER.

I noticed that Sawyer's diaper was sagging. We were right next to the baby center, or whatever it's called. I had never been in there, so I thought this was a much better option than doing the "amazing standing diaper change" that we had done up to this point. You see, there is generally only 1 or 2 changing tables in the Disney bathrooms. There is always a baby on the table and a line of 3 more waiting to be changed. So, I generally just take Sawyer into the stall with me and change his diaper while he's standing up (as long as it's just wet). Hence, the "amazing standing diaper change" was born. I called it such because it made him laugh when I said it.

It was a really cool place! A sweet woman met us at the door and asked us how she could help. I told her I needed to change Sawyer's diaper and she directed us to a large room full of big, padded, changing tables. They had huge sheets of paper that you put down under the kid so as to not get all germy. It was like diaper changing heaven.



We were the only ones in there! After I was done changing his diaper, we all needed to use the bathroom. There was a unisex bathroom adjacent to the changing area, so we went in there. I was very surprised when I saw that it was just like a regular public bathroom. You know, the kind with the slats that you can see through, if you are looking, and multiple stalls. I used it, but I was really afraid a man would walk in!! I really don't think that should have been a unisex bathroom!

We peeked around the rest of the baby area and saw a room with lots of baby stuff- formula and everything. There was everything you could possibly need in there. There was also an area with high chairs for feeding babies. I hope there was a seperate area to nurse your baby, but we wouldn't have went in there and disturbed them.

Sawyer had been looking forward to riding Buzz Lightyear since he saw it online (mom had been showing him videos online for months). So, we went to check out the wait.

First, we saw that it looked like there wasn't much wait for the Laugh Floor, so we got in line. However, Sawyer was fading fast and I wasn't sure he would stay awake for the whole show. So, we got back out of the line and went over to Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin.

The line was very short- maybe 3-4 minutes.



Mom got to take Sawyer on his first spin since she got him so excited about riding it.



Deer in the headlights!



Sawyer LOVED it!!



Tessa took it very seriously.



Here's my redneck photo of a photo. Notice how I cut our scores out? You didn't need to see my pitifully low score. I believe it wasn't more than 4 digits long...



Mom is actually pretty good at this game. Her score is always WAY higher than mine.



As soon as we got off the ride, Sawyer was jumping and saying "Again! Again! Again!" He got upset with me when I wouldn't let him get right back on the ride at the exit. But, I assured him that we were going around to ride again. First, we had to pose for the standard "Imprisoned with the Evil Emporor Zurg" pictures.





This time there was absolutely no line at all. I mean NONE! We walked right on and there weren't even any people in front of or behind us! I got Sawyer this time. In the weeks leading up to the trip, he was really looking forward to shooting grandma on Buzz Lightyear. Sick, I know. So, I turned our car around and let him fire away.



He was laughing and giggling so hard, he practically fell out of his seat. He was having the time of his life! I can't believe I didn't get a picture of him! It was SO cute!

I'm thinking we rode a 3rd time, again with no line at all!!

When we got off our final spin with Buzz, we saw BUZZ HIMSELF over by the Carousel of Progress. I told mom to get the kids in line and I'd go to the stroller and get the autograph books.

We definitely waited longer to see Buzz than to ride the ride! But, it was worth it! Buzz was hilarious and kept doing these silly poses and such.



I don't think the kids thought he was as funny as I did because they were just looking at him like he was crazy.



I wish there had been a photopass photographer with him! I would have gotten in the picture.



Sawyer was very unsure about the whole thing, even though he LOVES Buzz!



We noticed that below us (we were up on the walkway to COP), Stitch was signing autographs. So, we got in line for him, too.



Stitch was really funny, too. (Tessa chose the totally unrelated decorations for this picture)



Stitch took Sawyer's autograph book and put it on his pen and started spinning it around.



Then, it flew off!



He proceeded to pick it up off the ground and "lick" it clean. It was SO funny! I was "EWWW"ing and "gross" ing. So, when he went to hand Sawyer his book back, he really didn't want it. (Sawyer really liked the Bolt decoration and insisted on it for this pic)



I had to go and take it for him.



We were done in Tomorrowland and I wanted to head over to The Jungle Cruise because it was closed for part of our last trip and I didn't get to ride it.

However, Tessa started having a meltdown because she wanted in the stroller and she didn't want Sawyer in there with her. We have a wonderful Peg Perego Pliko P3 stroller that the incredibly generous Stephres gave me. It has a little platform on the back for Tessa to stand on, so she wasn't doing much walking. But, she wanted to get IN the stroller. We let her get in, but Sawyer had to be in there with her because he was tired, too.

This did NOT make her happy.



You really must watch this video of how mom and I react to such things.



We could see that she actually thought we were pretty funny, but she wasn't about to admit it.



I warned her that she needed to stop acting like that or we were going to go back to the hotel. She really didn't want to leave, so she straightened up for a few minutes.

But, when we got in line (it was really short) for the Jungle Cruise she started acting naughty again. I was starting to think we would have to leave the park after the Jungle Cruise.

Anyway, Sawyer got a 2nd wind after resting in the stroller and he was LOVING the Jungle Cruise. I wanted him to sit on my lap so he could see better, but he insisted on sitting on the seat like a big boy.



My mom HATES snakes! This one's for her.



Pouting Tessa:



Lions! Oh my!





Sawyer LOVED the whole ride! It was so cute!



We had quite a long delay docking the boat. I don't know what was going on, but we waited for around 10 minutes to dock. But, our captain was great! He entertained us with jokes, trivia, and just chatting.



I wish I could remember some of his jokes because they were rather funny.

After the ride, Tessa was still acting up. So, I took her in the bathroom for a "discussion". She decided that she'd rather be a nice girl than have to go back to the hotel for a nap. So, she straightened right up.

I am happy to say that this was the ONLY no reason, tired, meltdown that we had on this trip! That is a reason to rejoice!!

We wandered around and saw that the line for Pirates of the Carribean was way too long and there was still no Peter Pan or Wendle around. So, we headed to Frontierland.

As soon as we crossed into Frontierland, we saw Donald Duck, right next to a DVC station. We quickly got in line. There was a guy standing at the DVC station smoking a cigarette and it was blowing right at us. I was very irritated. Then, this same guy knocked a big thing of popcorn over and it spilled into our stroller. It wasn't a big deal and he felt really bad about it. So, I ALMOST forgave him for smoking in a non-designated area. ALMOST, but not quite.

I've never seen Donald Duck over here and it was pretty cool that we just happened upon him!





Tessa stopped at the DVC center for a little pin trading. The guy there was less than enthusiastic and very impatient when Sawyer decided that he wanted to trade, too. Sawyer was really excited about it, so it irked me when the guy was rushing him (it's not like there were people lining up to hear about the DVC).

We saw that they were getting ready for the parade to start, so we staked out a sweet spot right there in Frontierland. We were about 1/2 hour early, but we were happy to have a seat and rest for a while.



Sawyer was starting to get tired, so I reclined the stroller in the hopes that he would take a little nap.

It wasn't happening.



Tessa suddenly gave me a hug and said "Thank you so much for taking me to Disney World. You're the best Mom in the world."



...and all was right with the world. :

I just love that girl!



Finally, the parade started. Here comes the family of the day. Who do you think it was???



Yes, that's the family from the teacups! It is also the camera crew that was with them. I find this to be very curious...Looking at the picture again, I just realized that I don't see the mom or the girls from the teacups- just the dad, the boys, and the camera crew. Very curious indeed...

Tessa was quite impressed with the "pretty dancing girls".





Sawyer tried waving at everyone, but he was fading fast...



You will notice in the following pictures that a great number of characters on the floats looked right at us and waved or blew kisses. It was awesome!









The parade stopped for a while when Ursula was right in front of us. Tessa had a good time with that at first. She would stick her tongue out at Ursula and Ursula would put her claw-like fingers in the air like she was going to get Tessa. It was all good fun until Tessa realized that this was REALLY URSULA!! She suddenly got really scared and hid behind me until the float moved again.

Seriously, what is up with the costumes these poor guys have to wear? They're very similar to the costumes the guy in the Disneyland Fun video (circa 1989) are wearing.



"Line up on the curb, come on everyone. Here the excitement and fun has just begun. As your Disney friends come dancing down the street. This show is a show that can't be beat."

Bad picture, but I just love the theme of this float!



Hi Alice! Nope, that doesn't look like my good friend "Wendle" in the background.







This video of Tessa is too cute!





That was a wonderful parade! We all loved it. Well...Sawyer was asleep, but the rest of us loved it!

Since we were so close to the Haunted Mansion and Sawyer was sleeping, Tessa and I headed that way. Mom said she'd meet us by the exit (she doesn't do the Haunted Mansion for religious reasons).

I was afraid that the line would be REALLY long since the parade just ended. But, we got right in! This was a GREAT MK day!

Tessa hated this ride on our last trip. But, she said she wanted to ride it again. I made sure she really did want to ride it and that she wasn't scared. She said she did!

So, we did! She did great! She didn't seem to be scared at all. She told me that she knows it's just pretend. Our doom buggy stopped twice during the ride. I found this to be rather creepy. I admit, this ride scares me a little bit. So, when the car stopped in the darkness with the sounds of ghosts and freaky things going on around us, I was a bit nervous. I even could have swore I saw someone standing in the darkness beside us...



But, I don't think I let Tessa in on what was going on in my mind because she was fine.

Our doom buggy started moving again, thankfully, and I was fine, too.

When the ride was over, Tessa wanted to do some shopping. She had been wanting to buy a baby Dumbo that she had seen in the Pooh dump shop. I made her wait in case she found something else she wanted. That Dumbo cost over $20!! So, that was pretty much all of the money she had left.

We started doing some shopping and saw these jewels that she wanted (um...$7 for a little bag of plastic discs, I don't think so). We didn't buy them, but we told her to look like she had just found some treasure.



Not quite....try again...



There we go!

I decided to let her buy the Dumbo at that point. It was her money and she REALLY wanted it. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the fact that Arminda got this very same Dumbo on our last trip.

Mom noticed on the Times Guide that Storytime with Belle was about to start. Tessa told me that she didn't want to be in the show this time. She just wanted to watch. I told her that she could tell them that if they asked her to be in the show. In case you missed it, last time she was Chip in this show! Here's the video evidence!



Mom wasn't real enthused about sitting on a cement bench, in the cold shade, to watch a show. So, she sat on a bench out in the sun with a sleeping Sawyer.

Man, it was really cold in there! I thought maybe it wouldn't be too bad since it was more sheltered. But, it was windy, with no sun, on a cold cement bench. BRRR!!! Tessa really enjoyed the show and was relieved that she didn't get chosen for it.

There was a woman behind me who had 2 little girls dressed in Minnie dot. I asked her if she had made the outfits, but she said she had a friend make them for her. I told her they were really cute. She seemed very dissapointed that her girls weren't chosen to be in the show. But, her husband ended up being chosen as The Beast. Here's most of the cast:



Tessa really enjoyed the show and loved watching it this time instead of being in it.

Sawyer was still sleeping, so we thought we'd try once more to meet Tinkerbell and Co. When we got over to Toontown again, the line was still an hour long, and looked even longer than last time. Ugh! I just couldn't do it! Instead, we browsed the gift shop for a while.

I was looking at the magnets to add to my super-cool magnet collection. I thought I'd spotted one I liked and went to grab it. At that moment, a woman came up right next to me, and turned the revolving rack I was looking at! HOW RUDE! I said "Excuse me, but I was looking at those" and proceeded to turn it back. This woman actually grabbed the rack so I couldn't turn it back! I couldn't believe it! What a total and complete jerk! I said "You are behaving very rudely and I'm not going to fight you for control of the magnet rack." and I walked off. I'm not sure if she spoke English, because she never said anything to me at all.

In the meantime, Tessa had taken off with mom and had found an Ariel bank that she really wanted. She said it was just exactly what she was looking for since she broke her glass Cinderella bank. She even tapped on it to show me it was plastic! I told her that she'd already spent all of her money, so she couldn't get it. I know, I'm cruel!

Sawyer was interested in one thing, and one thing only, CANDY! He really wanted some overpriced Disney candy. Again, being the cruel mother that I am, I told him "No."

Then, I remembered that I had a $200 gift card!!! I went and got the bank that Tessa wanted, the candy that Sawyer wanted, and the magnet that I wanted. Yay! "Free" stuff! Mom came over to me and said she'd already bought the kids the suckers. How sweet is she? So, I put mine back. Tessa saw the bank and squealed with delight. She actually asked "Mom, is that for me or the Wish kids?" You see, lots of times when I buy fabric and things, it's for the Wish kids, and not for her. I assured her that it was for her and she was just as happy as could be.

After our shopping excursion, we decided to take the train back to the entrance. Sawyer had been wanting to ride the "Choo Choo" the whole time we'd been there. So, we thought he'd love it!



Ummm...not so much... The train's whistle blew and it scared him to death as we were getting on. He cried for a few minutes. The poor thing!

Tessa was just happy that she had candy to eat!



Sawyer calmed down after a while and tried to enjoy himself.





It was 6:00pm and we were done for the day. So, we headed back to Pop Century for supper.

Mom offered to get the cups for us if we wanted to wait in the food court for her. I readily agreed because I was still freezing and pretty darn tired. I sat with the kids for a while and we talked about what a great day we had together. Sawyer said "Pan" was his favorite ride and Tessa said hers was Dumbo.

When mom came back with the mugs, she looked really excited. She whispered to me "We have a towel animal in the room!" She was positively giddy about it! Honestly, so was I! We never got a towel animal at all on our last trip to POP.

I don't remember what we ate, but we told Tessa that there was a surprise in our room and that we had no idea how it got there!



It's a bunny! It had a teeny little heart sticker on it's ear, too. So cute!



Tessa's headband was on the pillow, spread out all pretty (she wasn't wearing them today because I wanted her to wear the bow that I made to match her outfit).



Baby Simba (bought on our last trip and has slept with Tessa every night since) was wearing mom's Mickey ears.



It was so cute, and the perfect thing to come back to!

I had made some window decorations and printed them on transparent window paper. So, I went about putting them in the window. It was REALLY hard to get the backing off of those suckers! But, I finally did it and decorated the window all cute. I thought I'd wait until morning to take a picture from the outside.

We were all in bed and asleep by 9:00! The next day we were going to Animal Kingdom.

Up Next: No, it is NOT better than home!

I LOVE all the updates! I would love to see the bow up close! I had to go back and look after you said you made it. For some reason I have this desire to make a bow!

Sawyer was chunking on his lollipop! I have never been in the baby care center either but it sure seems nice. I didn't know it was there for the longest time.

Hmm, you can tell I didn't open word this time!

I love it when the room is all "decorated".
