Jumping in to follow along! I've always loved your siggy collage picture, so your posts stick out to me.

How awesome for your little guy to be on the castle! Do you have a link to the video? I'd LOVE to see it! I can see how this would inspired becoming a "THOSE" people.

As far as the new restaurants go.. Think Olive Garden when it comes to Tony's. They're really about the same, but Tony's is adorable inside. We've been there a few times and would go back if we felt like TS in MK. Sci-Fi is one of our absolute favorite places though. The food isn't amazing, but the atmosphere definitely makes it worth going!

LOVE your pictures! Your plans sound awesome so far. I can't wait to read about this trip!

The Trip Inspriation

So the inspiration for this trip was the Memories show and DS5 being a part of it. I know it can change at any time, but keeping my fingers crossed the video isn't changed before August. We'll still have an amazing trip regardless I know.

This is the original video I took on Dumbo, the clip that made it into the show, although they only took a second of it. The whole clip is barely 6 seconds long. Gonna try and insert the video right into the post, I've seen people do that, but who knows if it will work so the link to it on Youtube is here incase.

(and I can't get it to show up where you can view it right in the post although I've seen it done. Oh well)


And this is the link to the full The Magic The Memories and You show at MK. DS can be seen for 1 second right at the end, right before the video screen goes dark and Walt comes out on the castle to say "Welcome to this Happy Place!" On this video from Undercover Tourist it's at minute 10:12

Thanks for the siggy comment and

I put the links up

Oh no about Tony's. Never been to Olive Garden...my parents are both Italian, like I mean born and raised in Italy, Italian. So Olive Garden is just, well, my mother would kill me if I ever ate there. It's not real Italian food. Oh well, we'll survive. Honestly, I don't find the food at Disney anything to write home about, it's not why you go to Disney. Maybe the signature restaurants which we haven't tried yet, but you can find really good restaurants anywhere. At Disney, it's all about the atmosphere right? I'm really looking forward to SciFi though, milkshakes YUM and I hear good things about the onion rings!

All caught up and joining in! That is too exciting about your DS. I even remember that smiling face from the commercials. It's so infectious! You'll be happy to hear that when I was at MK in March I distinctly remember seeing your son's face on the castle (once more the smile, how can you forget it?!?). Here's hoping they don't change the show! Just an fyi though, if the show is changed they may keep his picture, but some of the images are so small and fly by so fast it's impossible to tell what they are. But, that means we can pretend he's still there and could be entirely correct

Wow - that's great!! I saw the castle show in January just before Wishes but we were over on the side near the rose garden. It's amazing to see from the front. How cool will it be to see your DS on the castle in person!! Wow!!

I wish I could find a video from the day in January that we had a ton of photopass pictures taken. I was with a group of 7 women and we had a great photo shoot with a great photographer. I'm sure one of our pictures made it on the castle. They handed us a card saying some of our pictures could be in the show that night. Unfortunately we weren't there that night.

We saw the show going on again in March but they did it way before Wishes this time - like an hour or more before. We were entering the park & trying to make our way up Main Street while it was showing. I can't remember if it was the night we were there to see Wishes or the night we were there to see the parade. I think it was our Wishes night.

I don't think I've commented on your PTR before, but I just wanted to say that I think it is awesome that your little boy is in the video! That is so cool!

Also, yay for August trips! It is going to be here before we know it!

Ouhh, bet a photoshoot photo did make it up, I've heard that they hand out cards telling people the photo might make it in so they can opt out if they want. Too bad you didn't get to see it.

Oh I know, I cannot wait! And I keep watching it over and over again. The kids are already sick of it, "you're watching that AGAIN mom!" LOL

Good to hear about LMA...I have heard it's not great on these boards a lot, but boys and cars and fire, what's not to love???

My DDs and I love Lady and the Tramp, too. The girls loved the L&T fountain that's in the middle of the dining area, and were tickled when our waiter told them L&T were having their lunch "out back" (like the do in the movie)... he took their autograph books to the back to get L&T's "signatures".

How did I not see that: AK

Now I know you can't possibly see everything on a trip and since we've only been once as a family and it's been many year since we've been before the kids, I knew we'd miss things. But a few things I apparently knew nothing about, kinda surprised me.

So this trip I have some MUST DO's just because we missed them last year...focusing on Animal Kingdom for starters.

Flights of Wonder
DS8 is totally into birds right now. Drawing them and bringing books home from the library so I really want to see this. Had no idea it existed, wasn't even on my radar last summer.

Maharajah Jungle Trek

Tigers, Bats, Kimodo Dragons...Oh my! Yeah, the boys will love that. Now, I did know about this sort of, I just didn't know what animals it had and thought it was similar to the Pangani Trail which we did do. I remember seeing the sign, but we were heading to EE and I thought nothing of it. Oops. Are there snakes? I hate snakes.

Some other things we missed, although I don't think they are MUST DO's unless someone tells me they are.

Cretaceous Trail...the boys like Dinos but unless it's Jurassic Park and they are actually real, we can skip this, right? Maybe we saw it, is it just the Dinos you see while heading into the Dinosaur queue or is there more?

The Boneyard... I had thought about this for my little one while the older one did a ride with Daddy, but honestly, I didn't even see it. Was I completely oblivious or is it not in plain sight? Instead we rode Triceratops Spin twice.

Festival of the Lion King...Okay, I didn't not know about this, we just can only handle 1 "sit down for 30 minutes" kinda show and as we were walking by Nemo it was heading in so we did that one. It was good, but I wouldn't do it again, it's not really our thing, but it was nice and cool in there. Nice break. So I'm undecided about really trying to fit it in since the Flights of Wonder will be a 30 minute show. I don't want to spend all day at AK since we're heading to Epcot for dinner I want to be sure to have some down time at the hotel, even it's only an hour.
