The Best New Year's Eve Ever ~ Part Two ~ Day Four


Mandy (me), Paul (hubby) & Becky (DD16)

Wednesday 30th December '09 ~ High 72F & Sunny

We didn't fancy 7am EMH today so we opted for Disney Hollywood Studios at normal 8am opening. Becky wasn't feeling too well but she still managed to ride RockNRollerCoaster and Tower of Terror. We had danishes and juice for breakfast at Starring Rolls, then we went to have more photos taken with Lightning McQueen & Mater and Buzz & Woody

Bek still didn't feel too good, so we went back to the room. I did some washing and me & Paul lay by the pool for an hour or two

Around 1ish, Bek decided to chill in the room, so Paul & I made our way to the Polynesian (which was a bit of a palarva (?sp) as we'd just missed the Magic Kingdom bus, so we caught the Epcot one, but as we tried to get on the monorail the castmembers were holding people back as the Magic Kingdom had closed as it was full and we had to explain where we were going).

Today it was Claire & Mike's wedding, and it was a lovely, sunny, warm day, perfect for their wedding

We took a few photos and then we could see Cinderella's coach in the distance, and before long Claire was heading to the Wedding Pavillion.

She looked absolutely gorgeous, and after a few pics and wishing her lots of luck, Paul & I headed back to the Pop. I was really surprised when Paul told me after that Claire had recognised and said hello to him as he took photos on the trail from the Grand Floridian

Once back at the room we headed to the food court for turkey dinners all round and then we went to Wal-Mart for more supplies

When we got back to the room we discussed what to do that evening and Bek fancied going to the Winter Summerland Miniature Golf, as we had 3 free tickets with our room booking

Paul & I hadn't done this before, and we all really enjoyed it. Bek finished on par and Paul & I were joint first on 46

Once back at the room, we popped back to Petals for a couple of Captain Mai Tais, and then it was off to bed
Mandy xx

Another great day. My DD also likes the miniature golf - we did both courses last time.

The wedding photos are brilliant - the bride looks beautiful - and the horse and carriage are certainly special

Just caught up with the trippie - really enjoying it. What a beautiful bride - that dress is just stunning. I love the pictures with your daughter - you are both very photogenic.
