I agree -- even in the rain the sight of the castle and Main Street is beautiful!

That's one great thing about crummy weather -- people stay away from the parks!

Oh, and how I wish there was a Pop Century waffle for my breakfast this morning!
Trust me, when I posted these pictures last night, I totally wanted a Pop waffle with hot strawberries...YUM! And double hurray indeed for another trip!

Even if you don't get to do it on your next trip, just plan on being there during Christmas for one of your trips. The good thing is, it's still cheap to go during that timeframe AND we have always received either free dining or 40% off rooms every year. Totally rocks especially when they throw all the decorations in there!

When we last left off, it was a rainy Magic Kingdom day! We had tackled a few of the main attractions, but of course were ready for MORE!

As we walked back to Frontierland it started to pour again. Put the ponchos back on and dipped into one of the mining stores. Blake found his name. He was contemplating buying this because we had been Woody and Jesse for Halloween and made our costumes. But, he decided against it and was just happy they had his name.


The real things.



We waited for a few minutes, but of course they had to leave. Don't you hate that!?

Sidetrack...these were the costumes we made last year


Aren't they great?! I sewed piping onto a white collared shirt and pinned fabric to my jeans, painted the hats and strung them, the hardest part was Blake's vest which he did a great job on!

Ok..next up..ARRGGG!






You know you wanna say it.....



We wants the redhead! We wants the redhead!
Love that part!

While we were close..a walkon


Favorite scene from the JC


I always liked this ride until the Safari came along at AK. Lately, we've been having bad luck with our cruise guides..hopefully we'll get someone great this next trip!

As we headed back through Adventureland, we stumbled upon the parade. Is this is Celebration Parade? Or move it shake it?
Whatever it was, it was fun! So many great characters on these floats!







Gotta get the poncho shot!


It was sprinkling, but the sun was started to pop through the clouds


Continued in next post...

Then, it time for our favorite land...



And a very friendly and familiar sight


Ahhh..we love this!

I love zipping along tomorrowland. So many people and rides and sights to look at. Great picture opportunities. Here were some from today's trip around tomorrowland!

Paging Mr. Morrow. Mr. Tom Morrow.






There she is! And in much foggy conditions! Love this view!




Once we were safely back down, it was time for lunch at a favorite...

Aw thank you Jackie!! We were really surprised they turned out so well! The funniest thing was when we went out that day, there was a little boy about 4 who was dressed like Woody too and his head followed us the whole time we walked past him. Blake finally came up to him and said "howdy partner!" and the little boy looked at us with this face that was like..I'm the only Woody! How is there another one?! Is he the real Woody? It was adorable. He ended up telling his mom he needed a photo with us, so cute!

We've been going to Disney in December since 2005! And I can not imagine NOT going to Disney during that time. Is it your first time for December? There is absolutely nothing like it!!! You will love it!

I have gone in December a few times, but my husband has never been at Christmas-time.

We live near Disneyland, and he has been there at Christmas, which is amazing, but just not quite the same as the all immersing experience that ANY vacation at WDW is, let alone a Christmas vacation at WDW.

So I'm so excited for him to see all the Christmas-y things, and hope that it wins him over enough to want to come back in the future!

Plus this is our official honeymoon, so....yeah, this should be an amazing trip. I just hope I don't over hype it!!

Oh yay how fun!! Congrats on your official honeymoon! When/where are you staying in December? My fiance and I have gone since 2005, but my mom, who hasn't been since 2002, is going with us this year and it'll be her first time during December too. Like you, I am SO excited for her to see everything!

One of my favorite counter services is Cosmic Rays. My mom and I used to always split the huge chef salad that they had, but recently they've upgraded their choices. I love how they're sectioned into stations depending on what food item you want. And thus...can you guess where we ate lunch??

LOVE these new interactive pictures! It's like food porn viewing before YOU even get to take pictures of it yourself!


Blake and I thought highly of the chicken/ribs combo that they have. Their green beans are fresh and the red skinned mashed potatoes are awesome. Since we knew that our dinner ADR was coming up, we decided to share a counter service and ended up choosing...


This is the "half" chicken for $9.69 and we got the carrot cake for dessert

We always like to sit by Sonny! He's cool!


With our bellies full, it was time to tackle more of Tomorrowland.


I am a HUGE fan of the Laugh Floor. Blake and I always get a kick out of "that guy"...you know the random embarassed guy that Roz picks for each show. We love it!

And I especially love Mike's door in the waiting area! Cute!


After many many laughs later..it was time to battle....

The Evil Emperor!

If you didn't know..this is Blake's "you're going down Jess" face.


And yes..I admit it. He beat me.

But I DID beat him at Toy Story Mania..let's not forget that now Blake!

You know we all do it. The ghetto photo.


After getting my butt kicked, it was time to head off in the direction of the beloved Fantasyland! We noticed the first signs of the construction.


Blake wanted a picture of this one.

Now I'll give it to these girls for their creativity. They tied the plastic Disney bags over their Ugg boots so that they wouldn't get wet. Now..my questions are, why does one wear Ugg boots not only in Florida, but while it's raining? Yes, I can understand maybe at night when your feet get cold...but Ugg's do not have great support for that much walking and obviously will get hot because they are meant for cold weather. Ok..rant over

Continued in next post...

So after ignoring the Ugg boots, it's off to some familiar childhood rides, the first one being


Now I do not LOVE IASW, but I love the colors. I can only take one ride a trip, but since they have updated the ride, everything just shines and is so pretty and I can totally appreciate that.

Holy crap look at that line!


I must say, I do believe this was the longest wait time we had of the trip!

Everybody loves the hula girls!






Next up...


Love this one! Does anyone remember the lion king puppet show they used to have here??

The goofy glasses shot.


After departing the ride, we realized we were getting closer to our ADR and wanted to check out some shops in Main Street we never have time to see. Plus, the clouds were getting dark again.

These signs were all along the construction wall with different Disney quotes.


Introducing Belle's land


This new queue at Winnie the Pooh is amazingly cute!!


You can see the clouds sneeking up in our picture. We wanted to grab a few with our camera in case we couldn't get any of the castle when we got back from dinner.




Next up...browsing some shops and a new ADR.
Can you guess where we were having dinner at???
