Oh Jen, you are the best! "After I spit her hair out of my mouth"

I am like you though. I have to have space, I really hate tight crowds. I feel boxed in
As for those stroller bashers, maybe they get to close to you next time and you clip their heels with your stroller Seriously, who the heck are they to judge? I wish I had a stroller for ME sometimes! (I have a heel spur and it's a tad painful at times)

I really like at your Pirates photos, with Captain Jack being my fav! My favorite scene while riding....the one where the woman is chasing the man with her broom!

Your pirates pictures made my day a much better one. Thanks!
Before I had kids, I probably was a stroller hater... Wel lI don't know really, because I had my son at age 19, so it seems like I have been a mother all my life!
But I just have learned it works well for me. I do get frustrated at times with other stroller drivers though.....why can't they all drive it perfectly like me! OK, I am joking there. But I do try to be respectful. And I can see the frustration of those who are stroller free and getting nicked in the heals. And I can see the frustrations of those who have strollers and people literally jump or trip over the stroller.

One of the posters on the photography forum said she rented a stroller for her heavy bag of gear and I wondered what all the stroller bashers would think. I actually think there's a fair number of posters who wish Disney would just go stroller free so they could get around easier. If I'm not mistaken, I think someone on one of those posts wanted DISNEY to have a adults only Halloween party (you know, because all those dang strollers detracted from their own experience). That was classic!

LOVE the Captain Jack photo!
Thank you!
I went to the zoo on Tuesday with my Mom. It was 98 degrees out, so I took the stroller, so Claire wouldn't get too hot and complain and also because I wanted a spot to hang my camera bag.....which I am starting to hate more and more...I need a new system....
As we were leaving we we following a slow family. Not by choice, but they kind of cut in front of us on the way out. They had a couple of kids and hte Dad was pulling a wagon with the littlest one. We just walked slowly behind them because they were completely spread out in front of us. As we came to the exit gate the Mom veered off towards the entrance gate and the Dad went towards the exit. Then they all stopped. I guess the Mom was wondering if they needed to get stamped. There was a huge gap between them and they just stood there talking, so we went around the Dad to get out. Well the Mom didn't look or pay attention and just started walking towards the Dad. Of cousre she made contact with us mid way and trip right over the stroller with Claire in it. She said "oh sorry" but gave me a glare. I said excuse me, and I had actually said it as I was starting to pass too, but she acted like I was totally in the wrong. Of course there were others behind us as well trying to get out and around this family. Now I can see that does happen when you don't know what to do before leaving, but I would apologize and be sincere. She had no looks of sincerity at all.

We went in the gift shop outside the gates after we left, as Mom promised Claire a prize, and I saw that lady about 3 times in there and she still kpet glaring at me. Good thing I have the ability to glare back!

I can see people wanting kid free parties...and I am surprised that Disny hasn't banned children altogether!!!

Aww shucks...thanks!
I do try to be very careful with the stroller, but I swear they are magnets. People just don't look and trip over them al lthe time...and of course it's NOT their fault. I have to admit, I have tripped over a strooler or 2 in my time, but I do know it was my fault.
I liked hte Captian Jack picture too.

Glad to hear that a little name dropping helped.

Tiana is gorgeous! Claire looks like she was excited to meet her and Naveen.

Great photos. I've only seen Tiana during the WDW marathon and I didn't have time to stop and get any pics, so I'll have to see her on our trip in September.

I like to name drop, because I'm such a celebrity myself! NOT!

I was excited to see Naveen. I guess he's getting the boot now.

I was happy the line wasn't too long. I had visions of it being extrememly long. We got to see her twice...on the ship and at WDW. I was happy to see Naveen too. I rarely ever see the Princes.

The Tiana pictures are wonderful! I just love her dress more and more each time I see it! I think it is my favorite! And you got lucky seeing Naveen. I guess he won't be there when we go. I love multi character spots but we rarely find them.

OMG!! A few months ago when we were in MK, we were walking down Main Street on the right side by the bakery. I was all the way to the right pushing the stroller and these two older women were walking in front of us to the left. Well there must have been people in their way and instead of stopping and looking to see if anyone was next to them, they just moved over to the right and walked right in front of my stroller. Of course I ran into them bc they just went right infront of me without looking. Then the lady has to turn around and look at me waiting for me to say I'm sorry for hitting her...instead I said "well next time look before you move over and cut someone off!" And kept walking....I mean, you wouldn't change lanes in a car when walking???!! So why not look when you are on a busy sidewalk!!!!

Claire looks so cute in the dance recital pictures. I keep forgetting to upload Heidi's ballet recital pictures to Facebook, and then I can post them here. How do I even forget that? Bad mommy!

I will restate it again.. my Heidi just turned 9. She is 47 inches tall (too short for some rides still.. like primeval whirl) and weighs just under 45 pounds. She FITS in a Disney stroller and we rent them near the end of the day if she's gonna need it. She has to move her tiny legs a lot to keep up with us. Henry also likes the way it moves us through crowds much faster. She probably won't be in one this time though because her bestie will be with us, and she is WAY too big for a stroller. My friends daughter is 2 months younger than Heidi but at least a head taller and nearly twice the weight. But I won't say NEVER. I do still have a stroller ticket left from last time, so she may opt for it.

It is so pretty. I love how full it is. I wish I could find one that full for Claire.

I think the palce that does Test Tracks pictures is owned by Disney, while the others are owned by someone else. At least I think I read that somewhere.

I would be so excited to book one that far out. It never happens for us, as Skip is MR last minute, but then the good part is at least my wait isn't usually very long.
