Day 4 cont again.....

Chynna got the coffee rubbed Kansas City steak with the cream cheese mashed potatoes. We all tasted those and they were delicious and Chynna loved her steak. She said the coffee rub was really good with it.



I got the sautéed gnocchis. Now you have to know me to know that gnocchis are the only food I will get if they are on any menu. I absolutely love them. Whether it’s the Italian in me I don’t know. But I can’t get enough of them. These were so gross I cant even explain. I think maybe it was the pesto sauce because it had a lot of herbs in it. Too many I think. But here is a picture.



Now for dessert, Mike got the Chocolate Moose, which he really liked



I got the coconut sorbet, which was out of this world!



Chynna got some sugar free thing. I forgot to take a picture of it, but I think she liked it. All in all, this place was really good. The OOP cost was $140.35 plus tip. But with the dining plan, it was 3 credits total. After dinner, I think we were all a little giddy because when we left the restaurant; Chynna and Mike started skipping their way through the park. We were all laughing so hard, that we almost peed our pants. Chynna even had to go to the bathroom because she was laughing so hard. We walked through the park and they were still being hysterical. Then I don’t know why, but Mike got this idea to walk really fast in front of everyone, I think because people were walking really slow. Well he didn’t just walk fast, he was like speed walking. He even pushed his way through the little thing when you leave and he completely disappeared. Me and Chynna couldn’t even walk because he looked so funny walking like this, we started laughing and again, almost peed ourselves! So yeah I think we were just being goofy because it was such a long day. We finally got home and went to bed because the next day was supposed to be Typhoon Lagoon!

Day 5

DAY 5 JUNE 27TH

Ok so today we were set to go to Typhoon Lagoon and Chef Mickey’s for breakfast. We got up around 6. I know I know this is really early but we had reservations at 7:20! So we got on the Magic Kingdom bus and since nobody was on there, he took us right to the Contemporary, which was nice. So we went in and got in right away. As soon as we sat down, we went to get some food. Now their breakfast has the usual stuff that all of the other breakfast buffets have. This food was very cold. I guess because we were some of the first people in there, we got the stuff that was sitting out since they opened.







As soon as we got back to the table, Goofy was coming around. Now let me say, this Goofy was completely either out of it or hung over. He was just walking around, not even there. He would go up to people for pictures and not even touch them. It was weird. Usually Goofy is tripping over stuff and running and getting very into character. As you can see from the picture, he didn’t even touch Chynna.



So he only saw a couple of tables and then went into the kitchen. Then all of a sudden he comes back out, running, he tripped over the steps, grabbed his napkin and did his dance. It was soooooo obvious that it was a different one! I don’t know how some of these kids don’t catch on, especially since none of the princesses look the same! But anyone, he was funny. Then came out the usual that we have already seen a million times by now!

Donald…



Minnie…who by the way was very tiny!



Pluto….



Mickey….



This meal was nothing special, especially since the food was cold. We were really fast too. We got in and out of there within like 20 minutes! The OOP cost would have been $86.24 plus tip, but it was only 3 DDP credits.

So the original idea was to go to Typhoon Lagoon today. So we headed down to wait for the buses at the Contemporary. We waited for a few minutes and the Blizzard Beach bus came. We looked at each other and decided to go there instead, since it was already here and was empty. So we went to Blizzard Beach. We waited in line for a few minutes outside of the park, got in, and guess what, “ROPE DROP BLIZZARD BEACH 2009, DUM, DUM, DUM!!!” yes we made it to yet another rope drop. It’s cool being there so early though because we were waiting right on the bridge where you can see Summit Plummet in the distance and the lifeguards test it out before the park opens. So we were all entertained watching them. Now we had a game plan in motion. We were to go in and head to the left towards the wave pool so I could find myself a seat since I don’t really do water parks. We got there and I got a seat right at the water at the wave pool. We got three chairs and I also got an upright chair so I could sit and put my feet in like I was at the beach! So they left me and took off to go to Summit Plummet. I relaxed and took some pictures, called my parents, read, people watched, tanned. I was trying to watch for them and I spotted them waiting in line up there.







Then maybe like 45 minutes later, they came back. They couldn’t stop talking about that ride. They absolutely loved it. They said your butt actually lifts off of it because it is such a steep drop. They said it’s also cool while you’re waiting up there because they could see every park in Disney. They saw the hat at HS, the castle at MK, animal kingdom, and the ball at epcot. So they reported in, took some bathroom breaks, and took off to go do some more things. They came back a little bit later and we all went in the lazy river. Mike and me got a twosome float and Chynna got one by herself. So we floated around and of course all those two did was complain. It was too slow and too boring for them. I was like listen guys, this is what I get to enjoy at the water parks, shut up and just relax! We had a good time though, especially when I was steering us out of the way of the fountains and stuff. I’m not a big fan of getting splashed in the face or getting my face wet. Like I don’t go under water at all, so waterfalls and fountains are not my thing. But it was a very long and relaxing ride. Then we went back and got in the wave pool. Of course Mike and Chynna went all the way to the front where the huge wave comes out, but I stayed back some. Then they left me again so I went to lie out some more. Then it got really dark and looked like a storm was coming. It got really windy too. So I gathered up our stuff and headed for shelter. I actually just stood back some, close enough to the chairs that I could run and get them back if it passed and close enough to shelter if it started to downpour.

Well the storm was holding off for the time being and then Mike and Chynna came back. They had enough of Blizzard Beach and we were all starving, so we decided to head back to POP. It was probably around 12ish. We went back to POP and got some lunch. I don’t remember what we got, but the OOP cost would have been $42.54 but it was 3 DDP credits. We also got 3 Caribou coffees, which OOP would have been $12.75 but were 3 snacks and we got another 3 drinks for the room, which OOP would have been $9.33 but were 3 snacks. So at this point we decided to head back to the room and relax because we had dinner reservations that night at Narcoosee’s. I think Chynna may have gone to the pool for a little bit but I don’t remember. We went back to take a nap, that’s all I know! Our reservations were for 9 that night, so we left for the Grand Floridian around 7ish. This is me and Mike’s favorite restaurant in all of Disney. We went for our honeymoon, our anniversary, and now again. They have the best food, great service, they are a little expensive but so worth it. So by the time we got to the Grand Floridian, we walked around for a little bit. We headed over to Narcoosee’s to sit outside for a bit and look at the beautiful view on the water. I guess maybe around 8:30; I went to check in at the podium. I have always requested a window seat and have always gotten one. So I did it again, but she said she couldn’t do it that night because they were so booked. Ok that was fine, we could just go outside to see Wishes when it started. So I went back outside to wait and I guess our buzzer went off maybe 10 minutes later. When we were being seated, we ended up at the second to last table in front of the window near the back door where you can go outside. So we got our window seat anyway!

Chynna was so excited to eat here because we told her how good the food was. Mike is also obsessed with their surf and turf and that’s what he always gets, so he convinced her to get that. Our waitress was very nice. She was talking to Chynna about college and congratulated her. She was talking to us about how the majority of the people that seemed to coming down to Orlando this year were from the Pennsylvania area. She was just really good! So on to the food, the best part!!!! Sorry guys but we were so hungry and so excited for this place; I forgot to take pictures of the apps. But Chynna got the mussels, which she absolutely loved. I got the crab cakes, which I always get. They are sooooo good. Mike got the fried shrimp, which he said were very good too. Also let me note, their bread here is very good. The butter has like sea salt on top of it, which gives it a really good flavor. So then onto the meals. Mike and Chynna got the surf and turf….



I got the crab-crusted halibut. Now last year I got the crab crusted yellow fin snapper. That was really good, but the halibut. WOW! That has to be the best fish ever. It tasted like chicken. It was really thick and just delicious. Sorry it has a bite out of it!



Then for dessert, we all got the gelato sampler. This had pistachio, chocolate, cappuccino, and raspberry.



Chynna’s came out looking extra special. This was really nice of the waitress!





As soon as the gelato came out, Wishes was starting, so we headed outside to watch. Again, they were very good. This actually turned out to be the only time we saw them during the trip. I get all teary eyed every time I see them though. Ever since Mike proposed down there and that night we were watching Wishes for the first time. It gets me every time. The part that gets me the most is when the little kid is talking about dreams coming true and when Mike proposed, that whole day was just perfect and my dreams have come true by marrying him! So anyway, enough of my gushiness!

The meal OOP would have cost $227.78 plus tip, but it was 6 credits on the DDP altogether. So after our meal, we headed back to POP. By the way, Chynna couldn’t stop talking about her dinner. She loved it. We were even trying to think of a way to get back there, but we never did. We got back to POP and hopped in bed, preparing ourselves for the best day ever…..MAGIC KINGDOM!!!!!

Sunday June 28th Magic Kingdom

June 28th Sunday MAGIC KINGDOM!!!

So today was the best day of the trip as far as I was concerned. This is my favorite place in all of Disney world. Plus I think I am kinda biased since I got engaged there! So we had to get up pretty early again, which Mike and Chynna were not too thrilled about, but oh well, they had to deal! We were up by 6:45 and off to wait for the bus. We got to the park and got in the line for the early breakfast. Our reservations were for 8:05am. We took some pics in the park early when nobody was around. I’m telling you, every time I walk in that park and see the castle, I just get chills and tear up.







So anyway, we got down to the castle and got in line for our reservations. We were the second group to get inside which was nice. I get this picture every time we go there because I just think its adorable…



We got in line for our picture with Cinderella, which I know I am a dork, but I just get a huge smile when I see her. The picture from that morning was hysterical. I wish I had it on the computer. But Mike’s face was priceless. His eyes were half shut and he looked either exhausted or hungover. It was a perfect picture to explain the mood those two were in being awake so early.

We got upstairs and got to our table. We were a little worried that they had forgotten about our swords and wands but they didn’t! Mike and I both got the regular breakfast and Chynna got the healthy one. It was very good as usual. The regular breakfast consists of sausage, bacon, eggs, potatoes, and cream cheese stuffed French toast with blueberries on top, which Mike got more of. You also get orange juice, coffee, pastries, and fruit.





That morning we were all looking forward to that cup of coffee. So we ate and then the princesses started to come out.

There was Snow White….

Aurora….

Jasmine….which I hated because she was a twig and me and Chynna look huge next to her…

Belle…

We ate and had our magic time, I was a bit disappointed that they didn’t do anything for Chynna, but that was ok. The total OOP cost would have been $141.68, tip was included here, but on the DDP, it costs 2 credits per person. So then we headed back down to find that yes indeedy…ROPE DROP MAGIC KINGDOM 2009, dum, dum, dum!!!! Haha so yes we made yet another rope drop. We were squeezed into the castle area waiting. Then to our surprise, the Fairy Godmother came walking by greeting all of her guests. It seems that she helps with rope drop at the castle. And I still swear that she looks just like Paula Deen. So the rope went down and off we went into Fantasyland. We got done Small World, Phillharmagic, Peter Pan, Snow White, Winnie all by 9:30am. Today we were also trying to do some hidden mickeys, to find that none of us had that much patience to really do it right.













we then headed over to the Haunted Mansion. No matter how many times I ride this ride, I just love it!



I never noticed the red flower on there before, and when we went back on the ride on the fourth of July, it was gone. Thought that was interesting.



then we headed over to Splash Mountain and did that. That was fun. We stuck Chynna in the front and she got soaked, but the only time I got wet was at one point something came shooting out across and really got me! They tried to go and do Big Thunder Railroad but it was shut down for some reason so they got a fastpass which we could use after lunch. Then we went over to Pirates and found these guys along the way. As you can see, I’m kind of wet. And let me just say, Peter Pan is WEIRD! He was making cat sounds at these girls in front of us, it was just really odd.

continued...





the rest of the day was kind of a blur. It was VERY hot that day and Chynna was getting very dehydrated. It was so bad that she was in the bathroom a lot, not throwing up, so you know what I mean. So on that day, we bought 9 waters total, OOP cost was $32.25, but it was 9 snack credits. Later in the day, she finally got better, the more water she drank, the better she felt. Then she was peeing the rest of the day!

We skipped Jungle Cruise and decided to do it when we came back. So then it was time to head over to lunch at Liberty Tree. It was nice to finally go freshen up and sit in the AC. For drinks, I just got a Perrier and Mike and Chynna got the Orange thing.



for appetizers, which I forgot to take pics of, Mike got the Tavern cheese, and me and Chynna shared the spinach dip which was very good.

for lunch, I got the chicken salad….

in my opinion, it was kind of gross. I should have just stuck to the Pilgrim’s Feast, which I always get.

Mike got the tri-corner sandwich…. which he liked.

Chynna got the William Penn Pasta which she liked but said it was nothing special..



for dessert, me and Mike both got the ooey gooey toffee cake, which I must say was unbelievable. It was like a warm melted huge chocolate chip cookie, with toffee on top and vanilla ice cream…WOW



chynna got the caramel apple tart which she loved also



OOP cost would have been $93.22 plus tip, but it was 3 credits total.

So then we went walking around and went in the Christmas shop where I got a flag that is blue and white and silver that has the castle and lights up that I can hang outside. I was very excited about this. All of my Christmas decorations are icy blue, white, and silver and are mainly Disney things. Then we headed back to Frontierland. They got on the Big Thunder while I waited and talked to my mom on the phone. We then headed over to Toon Town and looked around. We wanted to see the Pixies but it was like an hour wait, so we skipped that and walked around the tent shop. We went into Mickey’s house and took some pics…









we attempted to go into Minnie’s house but I think she forgot to pay her electric bill because it was like a sauna in there so we walked back out. Then we went to Tomorrowland. Now Mike and Chynna were very upset that Space Mountain was closed. I was upset that the Transit Authority was because this is where I usually go when he is on Space. Plus I just love the ride because it is so relaxing and cool. I sit and ride it over and over. But oh well. We went onto the Carousel of Progress, which I love and Mike hates, but Chynna was never on it. After that, we went to Buzz and got a fastpass and then went on Stitch. I think that ride is stupid but Chynna never did it, so we did. Then we went back to Main Street and went shopping. Mike bought me a ring that has tiny diamonds and mickey heads on it. Its really pretty. We took our time because our reservations at the Crystal Palace weren’t until 6. we caught the 5 oclock flag thing at City Hall, which was really cool and gave you chills just watching it. Then we decided to head over to Crystal, to just sit and wait. We caught some of the new parade from afar and were jamming to the music.

We finally checked in around 5:45. it was packed! Then we waited, and waited, and waited. We didn’t get called back until 6:30, which did not please Mike at all. We got to our table and they had streamers all over it for Chynna’s graduation. Now tonight was supposed to be the cake I ordered for her. It was even on the slip, so I made sure she didn’t see that, and I also made sure me and Mike didn’t eat too many desserts. The food here is always good. Just your typical buffet, but I prefer their breakfast more. At one point we were up getting food, and all of a sudden chynna jumped. Tigger had come up behind her and stood with his nose directly in front of her when she turned around. She started laughing, so he was laughing too. He then started mimicking everything she did. It was so cute. So we got pictures with the following…
Tigger…

Eeyore then came over all sad and came right up to me and gave me a huge hug. I was so thrilled because next to Cinderella and Chip and Dale, he is one of my favs!



then Piglet…



then Pooh. Now Pooh was interesting. We were seated right next to the window and the people outside kept on pressing their faces against the window while we were eating. Which Mike found really funny because he was doing it right back to them. It was hysterical. But Pooh noticed they were doing it. So he went up to the emergency exit door, which was right behind our table, and pressed his face against it. He then was acting like he was stuck and couldn’t get out the door. Then there was music on, so he started dancing, and we were saying out loud just to each other, “Look at Pooh shake his booty” he must have heard us because he started dancing and shaking his butt all over. It was so funny. Then he came over to the table and signed Chynna’s book and when he signed it, he pointed to his name. I said “Yes Pooh, that’s you!” he kept on pointing at it and this went on for like 5 minutes. Then before he left, he took our Key to the World card and tried to eat it. I said “Pooh, that’s not food” he giggled and walked away.



so now we’re waiting and waiting for this cake. I didn’t want to say anything to the waitress because it would have given it away. Now the slip said that the cake was to say “Congratulations Chynna!”. Well she brought us our check and never brought the cake. So then I said to Chynna that I was sorry. So in the kitchen was a cake for her that the stupid waitress never brought out. She was really bad too with drinks and everything. So I was very disappointed with that, but it saved me $30 so whatever. This meal OOP would have been $111.80 plus tip but it was 3 credits.

So then we headed up to our favorite spot on top of the train station to just sit and relax and position ourselves for the parade and the fireworks. Well it was packed at like 7:30. there were no seats whatsoever. So we stood there for a while and waited. After waiting for a while, we decided since we already saw Wishes from Narcoosee’s that we would just skip it. And Spectromagic was not being held that night so we just went home and beat the crowd.
