I still have the boys Legos in the closet along with some other things.
Save those buggers they last for ever and will be great for grandkids. I think my Mom threw half of ours away. She would go into spirts where she would just through old toys away. Things I had wanted to save and now I look at them on ebay and just shake my head at the prices.

Ditto! My mom sold all our original Star Wars figures at garage sales! My brother did keep all his Transformers though and still has them.

My son still plays with our toys when he goes to Grandmas!

Doesn't it just make you kind of mad now...but who would've ever even known about ebay back then. (or at least back then for me )

Things were done a little differently this time around. Instead of paying after we were finished, a lady came around and collected payment from you during it. Also, our goodie bag contained less and was not as fancy looking. I can’t remember what all we didn’t get compared to last trip, but I do know there was only 1 nail polish, instead of 2, like they used to give out.
I gave some money to Claire to give our girl as a tip. I think I had her sign our autograph book as well.
The photopass girl asked if I knew about the photo shoot, and I assured her I did and that would be our next stop.
We headed out the door and I gave my parents a call. My phone was low on battery, so I wanted to be sure they would find us in case it died. They were on the monorail over and said they would be there shortly….now I should’ve really listened to that clue. I have never transferred from park to park, so I didn’t realize (I knew it in the back of my head, but never thought about it) that the park buses drop you off at the TTC. If I had thought about that, I could’ve told my parents where the resort bus stop was. I didn’t, and lets just say…when they left the park later that evening they had quite a time getting back to Pop. LOL!
Claire and I went and got in line for the photo shoot then. There were a few families in front of us, so we had to wait.

I tried to take a few pictures while we waited, but I kept getting people walking in front of me, so I just gave up.





Soon it was our turn.





































As Claire was finishing up I got a call from Mom. She and Dad were outside the shop waiting for us. I let her know we would be right out. This was kind of nice, because I grabbed Claire while talking and headed out. I didn’t have to have any pressure sales on buying a package. LOL!

We found Mom and Dad, and Claire ran up to them to show off her beauty.



We headed off to CRT then to check and see if we could get in early. Tasha was at the desk…and she recognized me right away. I was impressed. She looked to see if she could fit us in early. While she was looking, Dad kept asking…”can she get us in…do we have to wait…how long before we get in?” UGH!!! I just gave him a look. I had no more of a clue about it than he did. She was looking and I was waiting to see. Luckily she could get us right in. We came in at the perfect time. They were wrapping up the seating for that dinner session.
She told us to walk right in…and we did!

Nice Pictures! Do get photos with every package? What's the info I need to know? Fill me in please
I booked the middle package, because we already have a costume.

Thanks!

Anyone who gets a makeover at BBB can go to the photoshoot. If you get the low or middle package you would have to pay for any pictures you want - it's not included in the price. All the pictures can go onto your photopass card as well and if you get the CD you will get them all, along with all your other photopass pictures.

Love the photoshoot photos! Claire has grown up so much since the last time you were there, but she still has that baby face!

Claire's BBB makeover is awesome. They always do such a great job. I agree with you about the cotton candy poof. I much prefer it spikey.

Another beautiful update! Love Claire's photoshoot. I really need to start saving and planning for when we can finally take our granddaughter (she's only two, so it may be a bit) to WDW.

Thanks. I wish we could get them to do spikey instead of cotton candy!

Thanks so much. There are so many neat things to do with kids. I never knew all about them till reading Dis. I REALLY weant to take her to the princess Tea party with Aurora some day. That is big bucks...and if we hadn't gone on the curise, I had actually planned ot take her, but then when things changed (for the 40th time) I had to limit what we did. I also thought about doing the pirates boat ride (I forget the name offhand) that watches the MK fireworks. It looks fun too.
I need a lot of money and a couple of weeks to fit it all in!
