what a sweet surprise! I bet he was so proud of himself..most of the men I know tend to puff out their chests and stand up a little taller when they do something that obviously pleases their lady (and I mean that in a clean way!)

Our First Taste of Disney




So after getting all out stuff packed up and recovering from the sweet surprises we were off on our way to 1900 Park Fare! I figured schedualing a late breakfast with some characters would be a great way to ease Craig into all the Disney stuff!

We took the buses to Magic Kingdom, and then headed over to the resport boat launches for the Grand Floridian Resort. The boat ride over was pretty fun, I had never been at any boat at Disney World. Craig thought it was impressive that they had boats AND monorails AND busses going to the resorts and parks! Hehe

Heres some pics of the ride over...




We got to the Grand Floridian a bit early so we went to the podium and they gave us one of those buzzers. We went to wander in the gift shops and lobby and after no time we were called. We both got our picture taken and then we were seated. We both thought the restaurant was so so pretty.

Here’s us in resturant lobby area

They took the same pic of us and tried to sell it for 30 bucks when we went in! no thanks!

If you want to read my review about the food itself, you can do that by clicking HERE!!


So our waitress came over, and then we were off to get our first round of food.

Throughout the breakfast we were visited twice by Mary Poppins, Alice, the Mad Hatter, Pooh and Tigger! We both liked Mary Poppins the best! She was very in character and very sweet.



Next was Alice, she was pretty good but not as authentic as Mary Poppins. I for some reason forgot that Alice is English in the movie and I said something like, I didn’t know Alice was English and she looked at me strangely and she was like yes yes she is. And i was like o.. okay then! I was kinda outta it at that morning I don’t know how i could forget that.. even craig gave me “the look”



Next came Pooh and Tigger who were very cute, and Craigs first fuzzy character meeting!



Last to visit us was Mad Hatter! I was pretty excited to meet him! He was pretty crazy! He was talking to some teens at the table beside us about piercing their ears or something like that and we he came to us he took one look at me and looked back at them and said... and said some people even pierce their nose... and then he turned to Craig and said very loudly AND SOME EVEN TO THIER LIPS! OH MY GOD! Lol Craig wasn’t very impressed. He posed for some pics with us and then noticed I had my happy anniversary button on and yelled out well HAPPPY ANNIVERSARY! And then proceeded to very loudly asked me if I was just with him because he was rich lol I thought he was pretty funny.



After we finished eating we wandered around the resort for a bit and took some pics. The Grand Floridian is sooo beautiful! Its definitely my second choice as to where I’d like to stay next time (first choice is the Poly!)

Heres some pics we took around the Grand Floridian





And then we went and caught the resort monorail. Next stop.... The Magic Kingdom!

So what does everyone think of the new annoucement of the fantasyland expansion?!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08W5Os-Wnj0

I think it looks FANTASTIC and I teared up just watching it! Craig has already agreed we are definitly 100% going back in 2012 for this, the new star tours and the new harry potter land! sooo happy!

I know alot of people do not like that toontown is being demolished but personally I didnt really like toon town and felt it didnt fit in with the rest of the MK. I was very happy to hear that none of the other fantasyland rides would be touched, if that was the case I would not be supportive AT ALL!

I think what I'm most excited for is the Little Mermaid ride and Im sure Craig will be excited for Gastons Pub! hehe

The only thing I dont like about the expansion is the Dumbo thing. Dumbo to me is such a strong MK icon and I think the thought of two dumbos sounds kind of weird. I think the circus thing sounds really good but I think there should only be one Dumbo! And im kinda sad that Dumbo will no longer be behind the castle But I'm sure they will make it looks fantasic and I wont be complaining as soon as I see it!

Anyways whats everyone elses thoughts?!

I think the new Fantaysland is going to be AWESOME!What is going to be added is SO much more than what will be lost with the end of Toontown.Historically,Toontown was never intended to be a permanent part of Magic Kingdom.I wonder if this is a direct response to Universal's expansion plans.One thing that caught my attention was the "Castle walls" that Guests will walk throughn to enter the new area.They look amazing.This doubling of size is finally going to end the TERRIBLE "Fantasyland Bottleneck"!

Ahh, sorry, I'm a little behind! Just saw the surprise...that is awesome!

I can't wait for the Fantasyland updates. The Little Mermaid ride...there's actually a "preview" of it on the Little Mermaid DVD. Apparently it was a lost attraction that was never built but after they released the DVD they got so many responses to it they must've decided to go ahead with it! It all sounds amazing. Harry Potter land is going to be great too. So much to look forward to!
