lovely updates! .. so sorry to hear about your camera - I've added 'old camera' to my packing list for honeymoon now, just in case anything like that were to happen to us!

Just found your trip report today!
We leave for Disney on Dec. 26th and are staying at POP.
I will be sure to bring extra memory card. My DH will also have his camera so we'll be sure to do lots of doubles!!! and DD is bringing her laptop so I'll put the photos on there each night. I love how many tips I have learned through the DIS BOARDS!

Looking foward to hearing more about your trip!

I always feel kind of bad for people that don't know you need an ADR for most restaurants in Disney, but then again, it's in all the guidebooks!
We love CP, too! It's definitely a favorite. We normally do lunch, but I'm excited to try breakfast on the disneymoon!

I'm kind of shocked that people don't plan like we all do! Seriously though, people have to know about making ADR's, right?

It was all very good! We had quite the combination of food, though!

I have not tried that, but I will definitely look into it now! Thanks for the tip!

I hated to miss Pooh and Eeyore.

You must go back! It's always a fun and tasty meal.

I've NEVER ridden Splash Mountain! I am not a fan of water rides, and so haven't ridden it. I'm excited to hear about your reaction to riding it!
It was pretty disappointing not getting to see our two favorites, but you're right, we'll be back soon!

Exactly! It was lots of fun. CP has never disappointed.

I can't wait to hear about your breakfast! I'm planning on one for the disneymoon and I can't wait!

I think I'll be bringing two cameras from now on, too! And extra memory cards, and my laptop to transfer all the pictures every night. I never want to experience that again!

Thanks so much for joining in! How exciting that you have a trip coming up so soon!

I've read about people transferring their photos each night, but I never thought it would be necessary - I could just do that once I got home. Never again! I will definitely be more cautious this time around. And you're right, there are so many tips to be learned here!

So sorry about your camera card. I can't believe they couldn't retrieve your old pictures. That is one of my fears on vacation. I like the idea of bringing my old camera. Then your battery goes low too. That actually happened to me during the MVMCP parade the battery just died. Luckily I was able use my phone.

The food looks good at CP. Great pics with Tigger and Piglet. At least you can see your favorites soon.

We stayed at the AKL for the first time, just a pool view, and loved it.

It's hard to believe the little card just died like that. I have no idea why it happened!

We stayed at AKL on our previous trip and really enjoyed it.

DAY 2 – Pt. 4

On the walk from Crystal Palace to Frontierland, I had a bit of a bounce in my step. I was actually really excited to ride Splash Mountain for the first time!




We handed over our Fast Passes from earlier and quickly made our way through the queue. Since we were FPing this one, I didn’t get a chance to really take in the new sights, but I loved everything I saw in the SM waiting area.

Eventually, it was time to board our log. By this time, I was starting to get nervous! The ride seemed so peaceful, but everytime we would go up an incline I asked Miguel if we were at the big drop. Of course he said yes everytime! Soon enough, we were at the big drop! I braced myself and…I loved it! It was just enough of a drop for a thrill, but not too big that it traumatized me. Here’s the ride photo!


Surprisingly, we didn’t get very wet, which was nice because it wasn’t that warm out. We thought about taking another ride on BTMRR, but Frontierland was getting pretty crowded!


By this point, we were ready for a break and decided to head back to the hotel. We both wanted to get out of our semi-wet clothes and I was dying to charge my camera!

On the way out of the park, we stopped for some photos…




And to admire some more of the sights on Main Street




On our way out we noticed the monorail was up and running again, so we chose that method as our way back to the TTC.






I love getting to see the GF and the Poly up close on the monorail!






When we returned to POR, we mostly rested for a few hours before we decided to head back out to the park. We gave my camera some time to charge and I (unfortunately) worked on some homework, and then we decided to venture out.










Normally, I love driving to the parks, but this particular night I got the urge to take the bus. We made our way to the depot where we waited for probably about 20 minutes before boarding a bus to the MK. We would later find out that this was a very good decision…

Great update. The ride on Splash Mountain looked like fun.

Boo to having to do homework at the hotel. I've been in that position before, and it's not fun.

Thanks! I really enjoyed Splash Mountain - much more than I thought I would!

Yeah, I wasn't too excited about the homework. Unfortunately I had an essay final to finish.

I'm glad you finally got to ride Spash! It's so much fun! Although, now that I know it's impossible to ride anymore without getting wet, I'm always going to ride it last so I know I'll be leaving soon so I can go get changed!

I love the windows on Main Street, so cute! I love looking at the Poly and GF from the monorail too, makes me want to stay at those resorts someday! Especially the Poly!
