Today one of my friends wanted to go to Dublin to a dentist and asked if I would go with of course I said yes so long as I get to Disney shop

So went along and found this little fella:

It's an Irish Vinylmation

Had a much better CM experience in the Disney store today as well. The first time I was there the CM's just didn't seem to be as over-excited about Disney as I was the one today was diffinately as excited if not more than me. Was great. She told me to bring in pins to trade the next day I came up

Then while waiting for her in the dentist I was looking at bag from disney shop which is a load of squares of what looks like different disney comics. I noticed this one in particular as it looks like Mickey Mouse is now condoning shop lifting!

Yeah I thought that one was funny alright. Naughty Mickey Mouse.

I also forgot to say yesterday. As we were shopping I hit a mini Jackpot and found a load of new cheap disney t-shirts. I had bought t-shirt transfer paper and I was going to make a few but tested it last week and it doesn't really work very well and when I test washed it most of the picture came off so I decided to just buy over there
But then saw these yesterday so got me some. I have loads already but hey you can never have enough disney t-shirts right?
Piccies




Also in the disney shop I got a new friend again really shouldn't have because I've tonnes of plushies already but she was to cute to leave behind


I said as well I would take a pic of my dad's hat. Well trip mascot wanted to model it... (For those of you who didn't see my last trip report Trip Mascot is called Angel and he comes on 99% of trips with me don't know why but he just does: )

wanted to add in more of the possible trip schedule mainly because it's helping me remember what day I need to book the next ADR
So Day 6 is going to be Hollywood Studios. I didn't book any ADR's for this day because I want to try Pizza Planet. H.S. is another place we have alot to catch up on. Of course we want to see Osbourne Lights and new Pixar Pals parade. I also want to find Mike and Sully and Lightening McQueen and Mater. Then will prob do the stunt shows and backlot tour for somthing new
What is sounds dangerous? We haven't done that yet either. Also totally missed Muppets last year so they'll be first this year and One man's dream was closed when we were there last time so will prob do it this year as well.

Retro pics:
From 1995:



From 2005:

That was the last time we were there before they changed the name to Hollywood Studios but it will always be called MGM to me


We never seem to be able to make WTP character lines in this park

Day 7 will be rest/shopping day. We might take a little adventure to Florida Mall.

The downside of being better than everyone else is that people tend to assume you're pretentious.

My wife is afraid of heights, but I convinced her to try Soarin. She loved it. We went on it a second time another day. I would recommend getting Fast Passes for it so you aren't waiting in line, it is a very popular ride.

I booked for Garden Grill today and I rang the dining number as it gives the impression on the WDW site that Candlelight processional can be booked now. It can't and they don't have a date for when that will happen. They said it will just happen one day! But they did say I can just add Candlelight dinner package to my existing reservation when the time comes. I might try get earlier booking though when I can do Candlelight package because I was only able to get Garden Grill for 5.55 and would like it earlier.
If my memory is correct last year the CP ressies were available around August. Seemed kinda late to me.

on the possible schedule. Day 8 is at the moment open until Universal release their Christmas details. So depending what time their christmas stuff is it'll either be one of Universal parks or if I think we can do all Universal stuff we want including Xmas stuff in one day we'll use this day to finish Epcot/ introduce oursleves to Boardwalk as we've never been and I don't expect to get Epcot done in one day when we've never seen it properly.

Day 10 on the schedule is Seaworld. According to their website they are open until 11 that night.. Should be enough time to soak in their Xmas stuff

I do have retro pics of this park:
in 1995
they had these things to pose by

The had horseys! Last time I was disappointed to find the horses were gone

and I fell in love with Shamu:



in 2005 I only have two quick pics I could find:

I love the dolphins although I don't like the new Dolphin show as much as the old one they had!
and Manatees.

It's kind of tradition for me to get my pic taken beside Manatee statue every time we go there

Discovery Cove is going to be day 4 for us. My sister and her family went a few years ago, and LOVED IT! I am so excited, going to do the dolphin experience!

Discovery Cove is like a little paradise. So quiet and relaxed compared to all the other parks. I can't wait to see the new section and try out the Hammocks they have now

Thanks I want to know when the Christmas stuff starts though. I think last year it started on the 4th of December. There doesn't seem to be any sign of dates for the start of the Christmas things there yet. They haven't released their Halloweens dates yet so I can see this wait being a long one

Day 11 will be rest day/shopping in whatever outlet we haven't been to yet/possibly mass as well as it's Sunday. I think I'm down to 170 days today btw

The horses are gone?! Where did they go? We have annual passes for Busch Gardens and Sea World too. I never noticed the horses are gone.
