Going back next Oct sounds perfect. MNSSHP is amazing and Oct is a great time to come to FL. Weather is great. Warm, but not as humid.

Day 2!!! Waiting patiently.

Oh, yes, they all asked me if they could go to sleep now, I wasn't prepared for that. It was great though.

I know, I'm really hoping they offer free dining again next year, that will be the icing on the cake for our next trip. Especially seeing how Emily will be an "adult" next year as well.

And I have been bitten by the Mouse bug, I thought I was bad before the trip.....

I added a ticker for next year too! I'm sure the dates will change at some point! I'm hoping free dining goes into October next year too because my bday is Oct. 9th so I would like to be there for that and free dining and F&W Festival and MNSSHP! It will be fun to plan for that time with you and Nickie again!
Oh, I'm so excited, I can't wait until it's that time again for pre trip reports. I hope your dates don't change too much, it sure would be awesome to plan with you guys again. We are shooting for the last week of September, so my dates shouldn't change
We'll be ready to start a pre trip report again before you know it!!!!!

I know, I did get a lot of good pics. I actually got alot of good pics the entire trip. I was just so excited

I know I'm very excited about visiting at a different time of year. We did go to Orlando in 2005, in March, so September will be a totally different experience i'm sure. And i'm already excited for Mickey's not so scary Halloween Party.


I will try my hardest to get the next installment up before I leave for work tonight. This is the first day i'm feeling better, i've been so sick, and I have a lot to do. I have to go renew my license, Me and My Mom are going shopping for my bday, and I have to run to the market.

Now that I type it out, that kind of is alot, and I have to be to work at 4pm

OMG what a fun day! I love EE and my DD can't get enough of it. Her obsession started at age 5! That Summer she made me ride it 4 times in a row and the following year I was just sick of it. I went back on again in March though and remembered why I love it so much!

That last pic of your DD w/ her Yeti is so adorable! Your kids are all so cute and they look so happy in every picture! What's the secret? Mine fight all the time.

Well, mine do fight too, especially Emily and Lizzie. They got along very well on this trip though because we were all so HAPPY!!! But my kids are just happy little creatures, not sure what the trick is!

Hollywood Studios Day!!!

So we woke up nice and early this morning, and decided we were all in the mood for a nice big breakfast, so we got dressed and headed down to the foodcourt for a very BIG breakfast.







So with full bellies, and I mean full we headed out to the bus stop. We wanted to get there early for a good few hours before it got too hot. I don't remember what the temp got up to this day, but it was very hot. We got onto a very crowded bus and I started to think I made my first mistake by going to HS on this day. Fantasmic was only showing 2 times this week and i was warned it would be busy, but..... I wanted to see Fantasmic, so we went. And as soon as we got off the bus, oh my word, the crowds were bad.







This guy was funny, he turned to pose for me when he saw me walking buy with my camera.





Continued.....

So we had a mission and that was to head right to Toy Story Mania, woo hoo





The Pixar Studios area was so awesome, it was great. So we were going to grab fast passes but the time was for 2pm and we knew we'd be back at the hotel for a swim at that time, the posted wait said 30 minutes, so we got in line. Well once we were in line for about 5 min that 30 min wait changed to 40 and by the time we got out it was 60, that's probably what we waited for it.















So we all enjoyed this ride and the waiting area was great to look at while waiting. Was it all that I was expecting. Well, I think with all of the talk about this ride, i was expecting more. I actually enjoyed Buzz Lightyears space ranger spin more, so, was it worth an hour wait, not really next time. For the first time though, i'm glad we waited and checked it out.

After we walked out of there we saw Buzz and Woody across the street , inside this building, so we got in line, very excited!!!!!

I'll start this in another post....

The waiting area to see Buzz and Woody was really cute too with all little things set up for pictures.

















Ok after we got our Toy Story fix we were very happy and ready to go check Lights, Motor, Action stunt show. We got there and waited about 20 min for the next show to start, which was perfect timing, we had great seats and were able to get right out after the show, because that show holds alot of people. I highly recommend seeing this, it was AMAZING!!!!










And then Herbie came out , we were all so excited, we love Herbie!!










After this show we headed to Toy Story Pizza Planet to get some lunch, I will continue this tonight. We are going to go meet my Mom up at the Mall, Emily and Lizzie are getting their ear's pierced today!! I'll post a pic of them later too!!!
And my brother just moved into a gorgeous house with a big yard and an inground pool (i'm excited) and we're going to visit him later.

Good for Emily for getting Mom to ride Everest! It's a great ride isn't it?

One of the best things for me about Disney is that Dan (14) still enjoys all the magic! I'm glad Anthony did as well. There's just something about that place that brings out the little kid in everyone!

Great AK day! Looking forward to more!

Great pics Pam! Looks like another fabulous day! My crew liked TSM but we never waited more than 20 min to ride. The rain slowed things down a bit I think. We rode twice at rope drop and then later in the day with FP. FP was the longest wait. There is a lot of hype about it though. It's not something I would wait an hour to ride.

Hope the ear piercing went well.
