Yay!
Wow!
I have been taking a haitus (sp?) from the Disboards for a while and have enjoyed catching up on your trip!
Oh the TSM pics were great and I love that little gerbil guy from Bolt!
The princess breakfast looked fun- so cute to see Shae get so emotional waiting for those girls to come out and then- all is right with the world!
Looks like a really great time- can't wait to get back myself!

Did you try the Kim Possible at EPCOT?

Looking forward to more!

Thanks! We STILL play with that light toy (even though the lights stopped working a few months after we bought it)

I'll be on the lookout for you next PTR, then! I agree... I can't start mine too early, or they just get boring!!

Can't wait to see how big Parker is!!

Glad you came off of your hiatus!!

Tyson did the Kim Possible stuff at EPCOT with our friends and their daughter. I didn't get to experience it first-hand, though after hearing about it more, I sure would like to!

Love the pictures of Shae with the princesses, too bad they made her cry because she waited sooooooooo long. That light up toy looks very cute.

Thanks!! The crying was heartbreaking, but it was neat to see how quickly those tears dried up once Aurora came through the door!

Well, after 20 minutes of anticipation, the poor little thing couldn't STAND it any more. She just started crying... wondering WHY those princesses hadn't shown up yet.
Awww, poor baby girl!

Time with my TyTy

Well, this face just about says it all:


Tyson and I happily walked to the bus stop in some light rain, and waited for an Animal Kingdom bus to whisk us away to the land of Expedition Everest.. only the greatest ride EVER. And we waited...

and waited...

and waited..

saw THREE of these go by:


and waited some more...

45 full minutes went by until our bus showed up. It was VEEERRRYYY hard for me to keep cheerful, but I had to be strong for the boy.. you know how it is...

We finally made it to AK:


I don't remember WHY Tyson was wearing that heavy sweatshirt. I do remember asking him if he wanted to take it off, and he said no. Maybe the wet air?

We made our way over to the reason we came:


The stand by line was actually very decent, so we hopped on in:












We rode it at least two times, then decided to ride another ride that Daddy can't do: PRIMEVAL HURL!! WEEE HOOO!! I love this ride, simply because it's unique... not too many roller coasters do what this does!




Ready to be whirled:


Then I tried to take some shots while the ride was whirling. Some of them are kinda fun! You'll see two young girls in our car. They were from England, so they had the BEST accents. It was their first time on the PW, so Tyson had fun telling them all about it!










Ok, enough of THAT!

Our afternoon together was nice... just me and my boy and some fun Animal Kingdom rides! Next stop was Epcot, where we were going to meet back up with Matt and Shae for Illuminations.

This evening requires a bit of background story, so here we go:

I am an elementary teacher, and this spring break, I was teaching 3rd grade. I had the MOST AMAZING CLASS ever!!! Wonderful, respectful, bright kids, and (even better), supportive, understanding, on-the-ball parents!! You just don't come across a class like this every millennia! I like them so much that I looped with them to 4th grade this year, and have them all again!

Anyway.. my kids know how much I adore Disney, and I talk about it all the time with them. One of my students and his family was going to Disney during spring break, and he was so excited to know that we'd be there at the same time. His mom volunteered in my class once a week, so we exchanged phone numbers and hoped that we could meet up at some point in the trip. Well, we had been there for several days, and every time we called each other, we were in different parks. The ONE DAY we didn't call, we were actually in the same place. So tonight was their last night in Disney, and we were going to make it happen! I told them we'd be at Illuminations, and they decided they would be, too!

The best part of the evening was when they came around the corner of the lagoon by Norway, and he saw me for the first time. I was expecting him to come running over to me with his normal big hugs. Nope.. he was so weirded out by the situation, that he just looked at me like I was an alien... Stich, maybe? We all laughed about it.. it was just so bizarre to see each other so far away from our normal classroom!

Here we are.. he's such a cutie!!


They had quite a large group with them, so we let all of the kids hang out together:

You can see my student next to Tyson, and his twin brother next to him.


It was a very cool experience, as crazy as it was for both of us!!

A fun way to end a fun night! We had another heavenly stroll back to our resort (I felt bad for my student and his family, knowing they had to battle the buses back to their resort!) We went straight to bed. Shaelyn and I had a date with MK EMH... and a REAAAALLLLYYYY LLLLOOOONNNNGGG LLLIIINNNEE to see Tinkerbell.

how great you could meet up with your student and family
i teach preschool and when a student sees me outside of work it's like they look as if the space time continuum has been ripped- you can't be here in the store with your own kids- you are my teacher!

Up bright and early for EMH at Magic Kingdom.

Oops, did I say BRIGHT and early? I guess it was just early that day!


I like this shot because you can see Matt and Ty holding hands walking down Main Street. Ty will be 9 and a half on our next trip. I'm wondering how many more times I'll ever see this...



We immediately split up so Shae and I could ride the 'baby rides' (as Tyson calls them)


1st stop was Pooh. I love EMH and just being able to walk onto things. We were excited because we were in 'slot' #3... Shaelyn's age!


Next up was the Carousel. Here are a few pictures of my Princess on her steed:



Onto Snow White's Scary Adventures. This was new for both Shaelyn and me. I wasn't sure how truly 'scary' this was, but figured if Shae didn't like it, we wouldn't go on it again! How's that for strategy?


Turns out, she LOVED it! She never even mentioned the word 'scary'. Yay!
See ma, you had nothing to worry about!


Oh yes, it's time for It's a Small World... It's a good thing I'm not completely sick of this ride yet!

In the seat and ready to go.


My personal favorite dolls in the ride.. they always have been. I think I fell in love with the layers of tulle under the skirt. So girlie!!


It had been a long time since Shae had had any character interaction, and she was feeling the itch. Since we were near the Grotto, we decided to wait for Miss Mermaid herself! Here is Shae enjoying the play area... which is genius, if I may say:


Waiting for the water to spray:


A rear-view of the castle with Ariel in front:


We ended up waiting almost 45 minutes, but boy, was it ever worth it! This Ariel was another PERFECT match. She was beautiful, and rocked those clam shells! She spent a lot of time with my little red-head. Shaelyn even got brave enough to sing the beginning of "Part of Your World" to her. It was precious!




It was time to venture over to Toontown. Shaelyn was eager to see Mickey and Minnie's houses. I was really disappointed to see LINES out of both of them. LINES... just to go walk through their houses. UGH. So we sucked it up, reminded ourselves that we were there during Spring Break, and ventured inside... after waiting in LINE!


And then.. speaking of lines... we decided it was time to see the Fairies. We had never waited in one of these lines in the Toontown County Fair tent, and now that I have, I have a MUCH better understanding of how LOOOONNNGG it takes to see the fairies/princesses. YIKES!! For some reason, the princess line moved faster than the fairy line. I thought it was because there were FIVE fairies, and only three princesses... WRONG! There are only 3 fairies. So if anyone knows why the fairy line takes so much longer, please let me know!

Shae was such a trooper. We waited almost an hour and a half! Towards the end, she decided she needed to go to the bathroom. With no one there to hold our spot for us, I told her she just had to hang on! Bless her heart... she sure did. And we FINALLY got to enter Pixie Hollow. It was a magical experience (minus the potty dance she'd do every once in a while!) Here are some pictures of her with her favorite Fairy Friends:
With Silvermist:




With Tink!! Tink could see that Shae needed to use the potty.. so she refrained from squeezing her too tight!



And finally, with Iridissa. I like how Shae is sitting in this picture:

What cute pictures of Shae with Ariel. The pictures with the Fairies are just precious. Sounds like you had a fun morning, although I do give you credit for waiting so long. So were the boys enjoying all the Wild Rides?
