Lol, it's cute, I liked it, but there is more to do at MK! I can see how it would be a nice break if there were a lot of people at MK that day!

Finally, the end of Day 2!!!

I don't know why, I feel like Day 2 is taking me forever to update, and I'm trying to keep my rambling at a minimum!

When our dinner at Beaches and Cream was over, we went back to the room for a little while to rest and get ready for Epcot Extra magic hours. I took a short nap and let Brandon sleep a little longer.

I took some pictures of the view from our balcony:





I also took some pics of Brandon napping, but something tells me he wouldn't appreciate me putting them up here!

We get to Epcot around maybe 7 and of course, I go right to Soarin to see what the wait is, and just like the day before, it's looong! We decide to do the Seas with Nemo, because there is no wait. I LOVE those Seagulls outside of the attraction from the movie..."Mine, Mine, Mine"!

After Nemo, we just wandered around a little...in one of the little water areas by Nemo, we saw these adorable baby ducks, and of course, had to take pictures of them:







Eventually we made our way over to World Showcase, because I wanted a drink for the first time on my vacation! We went to La Cava del Tequila in Mexico because we went there last year and the margaritas there were soooo good! We both got blood orange margaritas and we went over to Norway to drink them.

The walk to Norway from Mexico was PACKED...I mean, it was crazy! It's not even a 5 minute walk over there, they are right next to each other, and it was just a mob of people! People were trying to get good spots for Illuminations I guess, so it was getting a little insane!

The plan was to drink our margaritas quickly and go on Maelstrom again, but that didn't happen, we found a nice curb and just sat for a while!





DH drinking his margarita, not happy with me shoving a camera in his face :



Finally Illuminations started, and we started walking towards Soarin...I was determined to get on Soarin tonight, no matter what! We stopped to watch some of Illuminations along the way:





We finally made it to Soarin, to find it was still a 40 minute wait! I convinced Brandon, somehow, to wait, because I wanted to go on it so bad, so we got in line.

At least waiting in the line was entertaining, because of those games they have for the people waiting to play! Eventuallly, after what was exactly 40 minutes, we got to ride Soarin! Soarin is one of my favorites, I totally understand the hype over it!

I was so happy after going on Soarin, that I told Brandon we could leave if he wanted to, and he did. We were going to attempt Mission Space before we left, but we were both a little tired and nauseous feeling from doing so much and it being so hot that day, that we were ready for our bed at the Beach Club!

That concludes Day 2 of our Disneymoon!

Day 3 next...which includes DHS, DTD, and dinner at Tony's Town Square at MK!!!

If you're terrified of most roller coasters, does that mean you don't do the Rock n Roller Coaster? That's one of my favorites!
Nope, I've never been on the Rock N Roller Coaster. Which sucks because I am kind of obsessed with Aerosmith. I'm going to try my hardest to get brave enough to go on it this summer, though. We'll see if I can muster up the guts!

And regarding your update...DUCKLINGS!! I have a ridiculous amount of love for ducklings. Probably because they are so darn adorable.

You HAVE to try Rock N Roller coaster at least once! Compared to big, fast roller coasters in other places, this one is pretty tame. The take off is the best part! I love the Aerosmith music they play in the waiting area and on the ride...now when I hear an Aerosmith song on the radio, it instantly reminds me of Disney!

And I LOVE ducklings too, I have tons of pictures of the ducklings actually...we spent a good amount of time staring at those Epcot ducklings. People would come over to see what we were looking at, take a few pictures, and walk away, but we just couldn't leave them!

Hello! Welcome to the beginning of Day 3, 5/8! We did a lot this day, it was a tiring day, but lots of fun as well!

We began our day having breakfast at the Beach Club Marketplace, which is a madhouse in the morning! We both got bacon, egg, and cheese croissants which I became obsessed with in November at the Wilderness Lodge. They're nothing special, but they are just soooo good, I don't know why! I think it's the cheese...I tried to recreate it once at home and it just wasn't the same! Anyway, I was in a hurry, because today was the first day we would be going to Hollywood Studios, and I wanted to get there quickly!

We arrived at DHS at around 10 I believe, and it was already packed! I could not believe the amount of people there! I wanted to get a FP for Rock N Roller coaster because I knew it would be a long wait...it was, I think it was 40 minutes already, so we got our FP's and headed to Tower of Terror to pass the time before we could return!

In the last 2 trips we have taken to WDW, ToT has never been more than a 10 minute wait. Today it said 30. I didn't care, ToT is probably my favorite ride in all of Disney, and I told Brandon, who considers any wait more than 15 minutes unbearable, that it's too bad, we are waiting so we got in line.



(I don't know why the date on my camera is a day behind sometimes, maybe it's in a different time zone than I am or something!)

The wait wasn't too bad, and actually waiting outside instead of running directly in like we would normally do let me stop and appreciate the detail of the waiting area



When we got in I snapped this picture quickly because my camera was being slow and I was holding up the people behind me



and we went into the library to watch the little intro to ToT!

I can't say it enough, I LOVE the Tower of Terror, every second of it! I'm a huge Twilight Zone fan, maybe that's why, and I love rides where you drop, I love that feeling you get when you are falling, and that combined with Disney magic makes this the perfect ride for me! Needless to say, I was a happy girl once it was over!

We went over to RnRC, since it was our FP return time...only to find out the FP line was still a 30 minute wait! Brandon said no way were we waiting, so I agreed since I made him wait for ToT, and we went off to do something else.

Along the way I noticed the large amount of Minnie ears they had for sale and I decided I wanted to get my niece a pair, who would be visiting Disney 2 weeks after I got home from my trip. I saw the princess Minnie ears a day earlier in MK, the ones with the white sequined ears and the pastel veils attached to it...but at DHS, I saw a pair I've never seen before...pink fuzzy Minnie ears with a princess hat! Now I had a huge dilemma...which ones should I get my niece? This choice would be bothering me for the next few hours...

Eventually we got to the Animation area, where I decided I had to have my picture taken with Sorcerer Mickey



and I warned Brandon that there might be a little line, but could we PLEASE wait, I LOOOOOVE Fantasia so much...(yeah, I was being whiney, but I had to get my point across! )! He agreed so we went in, and got in line for Sorcerer Mickey, which was only about a 15 minute wait!

I'm debating about putting this picture up...it's horrifying. I really wanted it to be good, since I love him so much, but it's bad.

Whatever, I'll put it up, but I'll make it small!



Ugh. I just hate it so much! I'm going to have to get another one when I go back in November!

Since the wait times were so long, and it was already the afternoon (after doing basically nothing all morning!), we decided to go to Downtown Disney, because Brandon decided he needed a new pair of shorts. But first...I finally got my Disney popcorn!



As we were leaving, I wanted to go in one of the shops on the way out to get my niece her Minnie ears. I decided on the sequined princess ones, because the fuzzy pink ones were a little too babyish (she's 5) and they weren't as pretty. I also bought myself a pair of Mickey earrings which I wore for the rest of the trip! Of course, I don't have pictures of those.

Going to take a break here, but I am going to continue Day 3 in a little while! Hope everyone is still following along!

Up next...an uneventful trip to DTD, and MK again!

I just found your TR, great job so far! Don't be so discouraged with the pictures, you are gorgeous!!

Congratulations on your marriage! My DH and I just celebrated 8 years on May 10th and we usually go to Disney for our anniversary, but last May we came home preggers with DD#2 (our souvenir) so we are going back in December when she is a little bigger! It's been hard seeing DIS friends traveling to WDW this month and pics of the Flower & Garden Festival knowing we should be there right now, but we'll be there soon enough and I can't wait to see all of the Christmas decorations!

How awesome that you were upgraded at the BC! We were upgraded to CL at the Poly last year and that was amazing. The BC is our favorite resort, we are staying there again next October!

Anyway, the TR is great, keep it up, I can't wait to read more!

Nice update! Your ToT pics are great! I love the pic of you and your DH with Mickey. You guys look so cute

So weird question...how was the DHS popcorn? I had some in March and I swear it didn't seem as fresh as the popcorn at MK. I'm trying to figure out if it's my imagination or not

Your pictures of the Tower of Terror are great. There is nothing like Disney Popcorn, I wish I had some now. I am sure your niece loved the Princess ears. My favorite niece turned 25 today, but still loves princess ears.

Thanks for saying I look ok in my pictures...I'm trying to use the ok ones for this TR, trust me, there are some really awful ones that I will not put up here! I just have a lot of weight to lose, something I was going to do after my trip in November after we got engaged, but somehow never got around to doing...

That's so cool you came home last year with a "souvenir"! I actually asked my DH if we could try for a honeymoon baby, and I got a very serious "NO" so that was the end of it! You will have fun in December, I think the holiday season is the best time to go, which is why we are planning another November trip this year!

CL was amazing, it was such a nice surprise on our honeymoon! I'd like to stay CL again, how was the Poly? I'd like to stay there, but it's just SO expensive, even the standard rooms!

Thank you! I do love my ToT, and I think I favor it when taking pictures! I have some from when we went to DHS evening magic hours too, they are so cool and creepy, I'll put them up when I get to day 5!

I thought the popcorn in DHS was good, but then again, I didn't have any from MK this trip, so I can't compare! I think any Disney popcorn is good. I don't know what they do to it to make it so good but it's definitely better than anywhere else!

Lol, I'm so glad I'm not the only one who loves Disney Popcorn!!!

My niece just arrived in WDW today, and I talked to her before and she assured me she brought her princess ears, I can't wait to see pictures of her with them on!

Sorry about all the separate replies to everyone, I don't know how to multi-quote, I need TR lessons! I don't know how to make the link in my signature for my TR clickable text either!

I will probably do another update either tonight or early tomorrow morning, weekends are a lot busier for me during the week, it's the only time I get to see my DH with him working nights, so I don't like to spend a lot of time on the , but I really want to try to do an update soon...TR's are so addictive! Writing it, reading everyone else's...I don't know why it took me so long to discover this section of the Disboards!

Hi!! I found your trip report too!! You sound so much like me about the pics!! You are a beautiful girl though so you shouldnt be so worried about them!!

I LOVE your pics of the Beach Club. We went to breakfast at Cape May and I fell in love with the Beach Club It is just out of my comfort level for spending on a hotel though.... and even with the great deals!!!! We stayed at the Poly last year and POFQ and POR before that, and POP before those and I think I have figured out that I am a moderate kind of gal!!!

Looking forward to hearing more!!

Hi!!! Ugh...I really can't stand pictures! Still so upset about that Sorcerer Mickey one, it's so bad!

In November, we had dinner at Captain's Grille at the YC, so we walked from Epcot over to that area and when I walked through the BC, I fell in love with it! I never thought I'd get to stay there, trust me, if it wasn't for the fact that it was only 5 nights and the 40% off, it never would have happened! I have us booked at POR for our November trip and I REALLY want to upgrade to WL...and I was playing with the numbers last night, and it turns out it's going to be almost an extra $800! So I might just have to stick with a mod for this trip!
