Great pictures of the castle and It's a Small World. I guess I am going to have to go on it this year (I was able to not do it last year because it was closed); Mark insists on going at least once each day we visit MK.

All caught up! Big THunder mountain is Maddie's favorite and she says it's the only rollercoaster she'll ride when we go. Lot's of single rider lanes for me I guess! LOL Love the parade pictures. I've only seen Spectro once and don't remember the music, so I'll probably be ok with the MSEP. We've had great luck with Chip and Dale too - they are a fun character meet. I love the picture you took through the walk-way that you can see the light's on the building - where is that again?

About the hair - just a warning - if it's humid it won't stay looking that nice. When my DD did that hairstyle in 10/09 it was sticking straight up by the middle of the Halloween party because of the humidity

I love Small world. Your pics are fab! We couldn't go on small world last year because it was closed so can't wait to go this year and we will prob go more than once just because we love it cheesey and all as it is. I love how they have Ireland in there as well

I have been lurking for quite a while, and I love your trip report and all the photos. I have one question though - Did they put different Disney characters into IASM? At Disneyland (I live in Ca) they have put in lots of the characters into the ride as you go through the different rooms - Peter Pan, Tink, Cinderella, Mulan, Ariel and lots more.

Have to say that the Chip and Dale pictures are the best yet! Claire's face is positively glowing and it's filled with such emotion! Totally made me smile!

Wow! I miss a couple days and you have several updates! You're really trying to get this finished before your next trip, aren't you?

My random thoughts:

Teacups - these are my very favorite ride at MK, as only DS and I ride them because they are too spinny for everyone else in the family.

I've heard somewhere that many moms cant ride the same rides after having kids cause pregnancy first changes the center of balance, and then with hormones and all, your body just doesn't react like a teenagers anymore! You're just never the same!

Love the Chip & Dale photos. They are the best! We too always have to see them because DH is named Dale!

Keep em coming!

We left Small World.



And hiked across the way to Peter Pan. Next to no wait here.







I tried taking pictures on the ride, but they are all really bad. It’s just too dark and you move too fast to focus on anything if you do get a sliver of light.

We then worked our way over to Dumbo. Of course I took a few shots along the way.





We had a short line to wait in and I shot a few pictures again.







While in line the CM told us to come back at 2:45ish to ride. The characters ride Dumbo at night before the park closes. It sounded like an awesome plan….but we were already starting to get tired and it was only 1:40. I wasn’t sure if we could last that much longer.

Before we knew it, it was time to pick our elephant….of course Claire picked PINK!







It was too dark to take pictures of the construction.

And then I had Claire get a picture on the Dumbo outside of the ride.





We saw Goofy by the carrousel and got in line.










I wanted to do Haunted Mansion. Claire was unsure. I told her it was all pretend and just think about that while we rode.
We headed that way!







As we got there, we noticed a large group (well large for that time of night) walking up as well. We ended up right in front of them. They seemed like a fun group, but they kept saying how spooky this was going to be. Of course they were joking, and I made sure Claire knew that so she wouldn’t back out on me.

I do like it, but I know many people don't. You either love it or hate it.

I don't know if Claire will ride it in the future again. I hope she forgets how fast it goes...or Skip talks her into riding again.
MSEP was good, but just not AS good to me. But many people love it much more.
We loved Chip and Dale. they were so fun.
If it's the on I think you are talking about, it's the walkway through the castle.

I would've liked that look better. LOL!

Thanks for reading along! Yes the WDW is different and does not have the characters...as of yet.

I am almost done with this day, but have 2 more very full days yet to pst, so it won't be done beforehand. But I want to get into the next day before I go. There is just not enough time in the day.
I totally beleive that about your body. Things are so different after EACH kid I have had.

I've never heard that about the characters riding Dumbo at the end of the night you can bet we'll be stalking Dumbo at the end next time.

Looks like you two are having quite the night.... a late night, but a great one. I can't wait to hear if you make it till closing. So the park was open till 3am? Wow! I don't think we have ever been there with the park open that late. I think 1am is the latest.

Your pictures are so amazing! I just cant say it enough.

I have seen pictures here and htere, but never offically knew that. I don't know if it was for only EMH or regular park closing as well.

It was fun. We really got a lot of rides in. And yes, it was open till 3 that night. After about 12:30-1 the park really emptied out.
