Our 2008 trip Day 3

We get up to go to MK board the bus raring to go. Walk through the gates and OH NO. Momma doesn't feel so well The nerves from the plane ride catch up to me so we have to leave. But knowing we had bought one day tickets to Epcot and MK I had to do something or we wouldnt be able to go back to MK!! I couldn't let that happen Knowing that this probably wouldn't work I thought I would at least try. So I marched myself up to the guest services building and pleaded my case. Explained what had happened that I was feeling ill. (I knew we wouldnt be back that day because my stomache conditon usually lands me in bed for the day) and the very nice CM told me that they don't usually do this at all but they gave us another ticketOh I was so greatful. She also had to "escort" us past the turnstiles as well to make sure we didn't come back in. She was awsome about it and actually talked to us all the way out.

So back on the bus and to the resort we went.I went to bed and dh took the kids swimming.Thank goodness for the pool! Later on I was able to get up and do a little laundry and that night we were able to go to the resort restaurant and eat a little. So it wasn't a total loss. I mean being in Disney even just at the resort is such an experience in and of its self. Just that Disney Magic I guess

Next up..Day 4 WHAT IS THAT LOUD NOISE MOM!!!

I am caught up again. I was so confused! One post said 3 months to go and the next one said day 3. I realize now that you are recapping a previous trip! I am back on board!

She's doing okay. We're still seeing a lot of fatigue and in general "offness." I'm beginning to think that maybe it's allergy related and have started her on Claritin. My allergies are a mess, so I imagine it's a distinct possibility. I'm enjoying reading about your past trip!

Allergies are awful here too. Tim and Sierra have both had a harder time far this year. I hope the Claritin helps.

In a way I want it to hurry up and get here. But yet I don't want it to rush because it is something we have to look forward to and talk about and having fun imagining. But we definately wont argue if it hurries up

practice tr Day 4 2008 trip

Day 4 WHAT's THAT NOISE MOM!!

We slept in just a tad bit this morning. And didn't arrive at MK till after 11am. Probably not a great idea and you will find out why later.But Ty was all smiles and ready to go.


He is begging for something here. I have no idea what though but he was sure giving it his best try


We board the bus to MK walk through the gates (again) lol and our first stop is a pic of



Then our next stop was a pic with Rafiki


After Rafiki we headed to Carousel of Progress. Now the kids know that this is NOT my favorite ride. I like the story but the song plays over and over in my head. So I like to play it up and pout when they wanted me to go on it They had a great time making mommy "miserable" lol

So I mentioned that we probably waited too long to go to the park and "WHAT IS THAT LOUD NOISE MOM". When we went in to the Carousel of Progress it was nice and sunny outside. While we sat inside watching the "show" we began to hear some loud noises. At first we thought they were working on something outside. But then it became apparent that it was indeed storming. Quite loud I might add. When we came off of Carousel of Progress we walked into a huge amount of people all gathered around it under the awning trying to get out of the storm. So we tried to wait it out. We waited and waited and waited. It was pouring outside. We had poncho's with us thankfully but we were still getting soaked.So we got tired of standing there and figured it was Florida it will stop soon. So we ran to TTA and hopped on. That was a nice breaker. Then it was so crowded around there we had nothing to do but go walk. The rides were shutting down except for the indoor ones.

We headed to It's a Small World and Ty was pretty much done. He was soaked and the storms was so loud and was so done with it all. His favorite word of the whole trip was "WHAT"?? That is his Im irritated and grumpy sign


Sierra was being such a good sport. She was just enjoying herself no matter what.


We were so glad we could finally ride the train. Ty loves to ride the train. But he does not like the loud whistle. The most important thing we learned this trip was to bring headphones for him.



Next...TR 2008 trip..Hey Goofy I'm GOOFY and Last day already???

Phoebe's so sensitive to noises too. General hum of a crowd is fine, but sudden noises scare her so bad! I'm hoping the earplugs I bought will help her get through the fireworks.

We definately learned the hard way. I tried the ear plugs with Ty and he just doesnt like them I wish they would work for us. Sierra plays the clarinet in band and when we go to concerts there sits her brother with his headphones on It is quite the site. At first she was embarassed but she has gotten used to it thankfully.

2008 tr on Ty's ptr:) End of day 4 at MK a little bit of magic goes along way

End of Day 4 tr 2008 A little bit of Magic goes a long way

Ok so I saved the character pictures for last. These are my favorite. Goofy just has a special place in Ty's heart and it was the only time he really opened up for the characters.

As we were standing in line waiting to see Goofy, Donald Duck and Pluto Goofy comes out to see us. Well little did I know Sierra was going to grab Goofy's wiskar! Yes my daughter grabs his wiskar. So he turned and pulled her nose To this day she says it wasnt her it was Ty but we know it was her. Somewhere I have a pic of it and I will find it and show it to her.

Here they are right after they had the wiskar/nose pulling game


And here are the rest of the character pictures. The smiles they put on my kids were awsome. After a very long rainy day these pictures made our day.









Now I really wish I had a picture from the parade but unfortunately both our camera's batteries were dead. But spectro magic parade really did some magic for our family. We walk up and get our spots for the parade on the curb. A lady and her daughter sat beside us and we immediately struck up a conversation. It was like we knew each other a long time. She was asking some questions about Ty and we were talking about her daughter and just relaxing waiting for the parade. And it begins. I absolutely love this parade. It just has that sense of ahh about it. It is my favorite. I love the music and it just brings back memories of when I went when I was younger. Well the floats are going and here comes snow white and Pluto and they say Hi to Ty over the speaker. He was having NONE of it Snow white put her hand on his shoulder and he jerked away. Pluto put his arm around Ty and gave him the BIGGEST hug I have ever seen. His face just lit up and everyone was awwing. I look over and the mom beside us is filled with tears. She was bawling so of course I had to start too. Then later on the electronic lady that has a big round dress on (the step mother?) comes over to hubby and gives him a big ole wink That was too funny. Sierra was laughing so hard at him cause his face was red We went to bed that night on

Next up... Last Day tr from 2008 and the Not so great flight home

Wonderful memories Tonya!!! Great idea to do a mini-TR within your PTR Helps pass the time and build the anticipation!

Hey, how old are Ty and Sierra anyway? You don't list it in your signature and I didn't read it in your intro. No reason, just curious
