Everybody, tell Beth hello! She one of my readers from another forum! Beth, I am so glad that you came aboard. I think you can see that we like to talk about a whole lot of things that have nothing to do with my trip report. But, that's why we are a big ole' bunch of friends now. Welcome friend! Feel free to post anything you want.

Hello Mary and Beth. I've been missing this afternoon cause I had to write paychecks. I love my job. Well, that part of it anyway. So far Lisa has not been in bad trouble here. Just a smidge. But we will all see what we can do to keep you here. We are a pretty friendly bunch.

Ring! Ring! Ring! I reach over and answer the phone and, guess what! Stitch starts yelling at me to "get up!" What do you know! My first "real" Disney wake-up call of this trip. I was beginning to wonder if Stitch was on vacation or something.

I get up first and everybody else follows along. Before too long, we are ready and out the door. Today is our first day at the Magic Kingdom! Again, we walk to the Old Port Royale bus stop since it's closer. The walk? Two minutes tops. We lucked up again and a Magic Kingdom bus rolled up in no time at all.

When we got on the bus, there was hardly anyone on. Guess what John did? Ding! Ding! Ding! Give my Disfriends a nickle! He fell asleep!



It wasn't a real hard sleep. Just one of those close your eyes and your head nods a little sleep. He can do that in no time at all. Anyway, Lacey started laughing and punched her Daddy in the side so I could get a picture of them together.



See the shirt Lacey's wearing. That's the one that she bought at Epcot. I'm sure there are other pictures of the shirt. As a matter of fact, I am sure there's at least one full shirt picture.

Once the bus started filling up, John's little mini-nap was over. This morning, we had a lively bunch on the bus with us. There was a mother and grown daughter and her child sitting right next to us. Across the bus from us was a couple with their two children. We all started chatting and sharing stories. By the time we arrived at the park, we were all laughing at each other's stories. It was a fun ride and a fun way to start our day.

It was a little after park opening when we arrived at the Magic Kingdom. Not transportation fault, just our lazy behinds not getting up and moving on time.
It didnt' take us long to get through security check. I was surprised that there weren't more people taking pictures in front of the train station. Guess everybody was more anxious to get into the park itself.

John took a picture of the kids and I:



We were all anxious to get our first glimpse of the castle. Well, not our first first glimpse of the castle but our first for this trip. We walked under the train station and around the hub to see this:



Ahhhh, Main Street! Pure Disney magic!



One of the hanging baskets:



Sing with me now....."clang, clang, clang goes the mmm mmm mmm ......." ooops forgot the rest of the words.



Hey a balloon vendor:



Since the Epcot "jump" picture turned out so well, I told Lacey and Hunter to try one at the Magic Kingdom. Not so easy to do when you have tons of people walking around you. Yes, we got those "look at those poor crazy people" looks.



Our plan was to do Adventureland first and then figure out what to do next. A picture I took while walking down the pathway near Crystal Palace.



I spotted a photopass photographer and asked him to take our pictures. He was sick. How did I know? He kept sniffing and had cough drop breath. He took pictures of us as a group and then one of John and I and one of Lacey and Hunter. They didn't turn out so good. He had us say GOOFY and snapped us while our mouths were open. I'll have to upload the photopass pictures one day so I can post them.

Photopass pictures taken, we continued our walk towards Adventureland.



When we heard the music, Lacey started doing a little dance. Do any of you remember the movie Can't Buy Me Love? If so, remember the part where the nerdy guy thinks he is watching American Bandstand and is learning how to do a really cool dance. It later turns out to be a demonstration of the African Anteater Dance on the Discovery Channel! For those of you who haven't it's really funny....it's like this tribal dance.

Anyway, here's a picture of Lacey doing the African Anteater Dance to be beat of the Adventureland drums:



One day, I am going to stop and get a Dole Whip from here:



Just before we got the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse, Lacey saw a vendor who was selling pins and jewelry. She stopped to see if she could find something for her Mission friends something.





***Okay, I'll stop here. Sorry, it's a short post but the 5:00 bell just rang. Heading home to cook dinner, wash clothes, help with homework, etc. etc. etc. I'll try to get on the Dis tonight while Hunter is working on his report. Staying home from Wednesday night church because we have a special seminar type thing at church.

Loved your update! For me, when I see the castle, I truly know that I have arrived! What a wonderful feeling to see it. I have really enjoyed all of the pictures you've taken. It really makes the story come alive!

Lacey is just too adorable. Love the jumping pics of her and Hunter.

Love that magical update. Totally wonderfull. That shirt of Laceys is too cute. She has good taste. I think John and Don must be related. He too could nod off to sleep without thinking twice. Naughty boys.

They are doing a fine job on the jumping pics. Looks to me it was a tad bit crowded.

Great couple of updates. Sorry about the heights thing. It's freaking me out more as I get older. I don't remember the Poly bothering me, but we didn't get there this trip...the more I think about it the more things I think of that we "didn't get to". Thank goodness for June.

LOVE me some pictures of the castle. Makes me feel almost homesick.

The jumping pictures are just too cute.

Wanted to send a shout out to your new recruits. It's too bad you don't get a tag or avatar or something for recruiting people. You might have the record.

Hope you had a good evening.

And hi to all my other friends. I promise I'm trying to get to your threads...a lot going on here...I'm working on it.
