Loving your trip report! I knew your DBF would get addicted!
Can't wait for more!

I love the plans about Fantasyland! I teared up too. This is just one more reason that being a DVC member is AWESOME!!

I completely agree! It will be awesome! Im willing to loose toontown for it too. I think it probably does have to do with universal. Just wondering what does the Fantasyland Bottleneck mean!?

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!
thank u!! it was a great surprise! Ive seen the preview it looks great! and i LOVE the little mermaid. shes my fave! Craig is very excited for the new star tours at HS and snl ride at universal! Cant wait to return!

Hey all! Hope everyone is doim good! Just wanted to give you all a quick update on my life! I started my new position at my job and so far its been really great! I work as a resource person for a before and after school program and I used to have my own program but now I go from program to program helping out and giving ideas. Its pretty fun and its something new and exciting everyday!

Ive also made a huge life decision and I was tryibng to decide what to do for my post grad, Human Resources or Teaching and Im going with teaching! I’m applying this month so wish me luck! The only bad part of this decision is moving in with Craig will have to wait a while longer till Im done schooling which makes me sad since he lives so far away from meee! grr

And as for Craig well he is just looking for a full time job in journalism and he is actually just returning from a weekend trip to new York with his family because his grandma is here from England!

So lucky him for two vacations!! While im at work!! Yuck!

Anyways thats all with us... Magic Kingdom next post!!!

O and YAY me for 1000 posts!!!

Magic Kingdom: Part One

So when I last left off we were at the Grand Floridian Monerail station waiting for the monorail. It quickly came and within minutes we had arrived at the Magic Kingdom.



We took the obligatory pic in front of the Magic Kingdom Train station and then into the place I love most in the world we went.


First Look at the castle.

Now Craig at this point was just looking around in awe. Like he seriously looked like a little kid again. It was the cutest thing I had ever seen... EVER! He turned to me and said wow.. this is intense. Hehe I adore him.


Anyways so we had planned on trying our Ridemax for the day but that didn’t start until 3:30pm (after the parade) and it was only 12ish so we decided to walk around for a bit!

First we went and took some castle pics...












Which I think turned out very cute! Except for the hideous crane in the background! Ugh!! Good thing it was gone by our last day!

Then as we finished up with that we ran into the celebrations party/parade thing. It was pretty cute. We watched for a bit then we decided to take Craig on his first ride.




Nice bum where ya from!

So we headed over to Adventureland and headed to Pirates. It was only a 5 minute wait so into line we went.

Craig really enjoyed the ride, as did I, how could I not with mr jack sparrow animatronics around?

After the ride was done we headed to the gift shop and decided to play pirates. Arrrr.



After Pirates we headed over to Splash Mountain and grabbed a FP for later that night. We wandered around Adventureland and Frontierland for a bit and took some pics, enjoyed the sights and I enjoyed watching Craig see everything for the first time. Heres some wandering pics...












Then we decided to head over to the Haunted Mansion. It was only a 20 minute wait but we actually only ended up waiting 10-15mins. Heres some line pics!







Haunted Mansion is one of my faves, and I knew Craig would love it! Which he did!! He was completely amazed by the awesomeness that is the Haunted Mansion. I knew I had him hooked!!!

After the Haunted Mansion it was about 2:15pm. We decided to go look for the perfect parade spot, have a nice cold drink and sit and relax before the parade. And the perfect parade spot we did find. The pics would have been PERFECT except for the crane!!! But im still very happy with how the pics turned out!

Heres Craig waiting for the parade to start! He looks so excited... lol


Parade Pics Continued Below....

The Parade!

I loveee this parade! It was so cute and Im so glad we got such awesome spots! We were completely unobstructed with no one in front of us and the castle in the background! We also got a ton of character interaction! Chip and Dale came over to us were playing around and Genie came over and kissed my hand! O la la! Hehe I was just so happy during this parade I think I coulda cried.

Here’s my fave shots from the parade! Im starting to get the hang of this photography thing!




































up next.... A Ridemax Afternoon at MK

no worries! planning two trips can be time consuming! hehe

i never thought of that... maybe she did say Yeah I am.. But I think she said Yeah she is... hmm... whatever she said at least she did it with a british accent lol Main street is awesome with a first timer hehe It was actually really overwhelming for me too!

and thank u! Its sucha great spot! I think it would work for spectro for sure but Im just not sure if spectro follows the same parade path? if it does this is the spot to be!

Spectromagic does follow the same route.The Fantasyland Bottleneck is just my term for the "traffic conjestion" that occurs in Fantasyland at busy times with all the families with children there and also Guests using that route to go from Tomorrowland to Liberty Square and vice-versa.
