Wow, the tour group took up half the restaurant Who would have thought they would have made a breakfast reservation that early in the morning?

I love your outfit! And that your DBF was wearing a Mickey shirt and getting into the napkin dance, what a good sport!

Just caught up...I love your shirts, you must have been pretty popular with Mickey's crew

Can't wait to read more!

I liked the bow, but next time it will be ears!we enjoyed meeting 'our' tour group in the parks during the rest of the week! and we even saw them sitting in a big group on the floor at the mall...the amount of abercrombie and hollister bags they had was crazy!

thanks, we were so relieved to get the car and although initially very anxious DBF loved the freedom of having a car and liked the openness of american driving! I loved the breakfast, my mum is going in May and is making an ADR for Chef Mickey's on our good review!

A couple of cast members liked my shirt which I thought was cool...DBF was a really good sport and a great travel companion although he gets very worried if he veers off his healthy eating plan...whereas I'm almost allergic to halth eating!

Hi, thanks for coming by
Yep they were signalling to the tshirts and the waitress tried to interpret for us! I'm hopefully going to frame the photos with micky and minnie!

I am back and all caught up. I can't believe your luck with that tour group! You would think that maybe the CM hostess would have gone ahead and let you two in ahead of the 80.

Glad you enjoyed the character breakfast!

As soon as we finished our breakfast we hopped on the monorail over to the MK enjoying the views of the Polynesian and Grand Floirdian as we went, we were both very excited and DBF was looking forward to his first ever glimpse of the castle...

We probably had about 45 mins waiting before the opening show and DBF was enjoying an early rest...






we both loved the arrival of the train and the opening show, I was torn between watching DBF's reaction and watching the show myself, he couldn't believe the effort involved in simply opening the park!



Upon entering the park, we got a bit carried away with the excitement and the crowd and although we were happily taking in the castle and mainstreet it was definitely at a quick pace as we headed towards Space Mountain...


This was a walk on and w both loved it, and the tv screens you appear on as you exit the ride on the moving walkway was really cool! now this was when things started to get weird!!!

This was 5th July, I was ready for HUGE crowds,

we walked on
- Buzz lightyear
- Winnie the Pooh
- 5 mins for Peter Pan
- Haunted Mansion

Thunder Mt railroad and Splash were really short waits and Pirates of the Caribean was a 2 minute wait!

I was so excited, I kept telling DBF 'It's not meant to be like this!!!'

Here we are posing after one of DBF's favourite rides!






so by about half eleven we had all the above rides done and headed towards snow white and ou longest wait of the day, maybe 30 minutes, although we both enjoyed the ride we were both hungry and our very early start was cathing up with us!





I think our exhaustion is showing through in those photos and although we were loving the castle view we both felt we needed a nap and a change of footwear (our feet were killing, flimsy footwear not such a good idea!) if we were going to make the fireworks show that night!!!

You were able to accomplish a lot in that time! I'm like you...I would've expected bigger waits!

Great start to the day, isn't MK great when you make it for rope drop? Nice and empty-ish and everything is totally doable before lunch

Looking forward to reading more popcorn:

That's amazing you guys got so much done by noon Pixie dust was definitely on your side that day I hear ya, those early breakfast ADRs are rough. Last year my sister and I had to go back to our hotel and rest because we were so exhausted by 2 or 3 in the afternoon.

Hi, sorry for the late replies, I have become a little demotivated, didn't realise how hard this trip report writing would be! it's difficult to keep it fresh and interesting but have started so want to keep going!

DBF was looking at the roped off unused queueing areas with a 'surely people don't queue through all this? expression! I warned him we were bound to have some long waits in the next 2 weeks! and we did!

I love MK at opening although I'd love to go in less of a panic next time and enjoy a leisurely stroll down Main St and breakfast at the bakery, hmmm such a nice thought sitting in my freezing office!

Me and DBF were struggling to keep going, we even passed up our ADR at Liberty Tree Tavern because we were just so exhausted, not sure we were even thinking straight!!! but so glad we got to come back for the fireworks that night! a little nap is definitely the key after the early ADR's!!!

I am So happy to have found your trip report.. First of all.. Love anyone from the Irish Isle.. I have been once.. not to n. ireland though (as when I went you couldn't get from ireland to n.ireland because of all that was going on). I have tons of family in Galway, and County Kerry and Kilarney.. As much as I love Disney, Ireland is my next favorite place in the world.. I would love to be able to take my son and my husband there as my parents did for me..

U like American Accents.. I love a good Brogue! HA..
I have enjoyed reading your TR so much.. Its not boring at all.. I feel like I am right there with you.. I am doing it backwards though, I will go to read your PTR Now.. I hope that once I get my act together and begin my PTR you will come and read as well..
My trip is planned for May 2011.. With my son, who is turning 5 and my husband who is turning 40 (I am also turning 40 but not until way later ;0)
Cheers!

Hi, I'll definitely come over and read your trip report, my mum nana aunt and cousin have a trip booked for May 2011 too so you might overlap exam commitments mean I just couldn't squeeze it in!

You'll have to get up North next time you make it to Ireland, did you visit Dublin when you were here and visit a couple of wee irish pubs? has your husband and son visited Ireland before? My DBF has some relatives from Cork but even though Ireland is pretty small we haven't been down to visit them yet! and we've been dating almost 2 yrs!

glad your liking the trip report, real life is definitely impeding my dis-boarding at the minute but hope to get caught up once I get my christmas holidays!

bought my mum a mickey mouse nightshirt yesterday for £7 will try and stick a photo up this weekend!

Sadly, I have never been up North.. and although I did make it some pubs when I was in Ireland.. I was only 8.. haha..
I absolutely loved it and it really is my dream to go back there.. Both my grandparents on my dads side were from there.. They had huge irish families, sadly they are all gone now, but their kids are all still there.. One of these days.. Oh, I would LOVE to do a DIS meet with your family if our days overlap.. Nothing I love better than some irish.. My son who is going to 5, I talk about his great grandad to him quite often and am always trying to fake the Irish Brogue, how great it would be to have him talk to your MUM??
This is a really busy time of the year.. although I can't wait to hear more about your trip.. I am anxiously anticipating..
