My mom made me take a picture of this boy from the painting in the queue for the ride because she thinks his facial expression is creepy! Hahaha I donít think it is, but who knows!!

Ahh, such a pretty view! OOH! I see our home!!! YAY Dolphin!


Next stop was Mexico, but we needed a potty break, so I waited with the purses and I listened to a savvy Mexican band!




We walked around the market, and decided to hop on the vacant Three Caballeros ride!











We ended up sitting on the fountain, trying to take a picture of the three of us! It took several tries, but I think we (kind of) did it!


I even tried on a sweet hat!!


We left the WS and headed into Future World!!.. but not before stopping in MouseGears!


But finally it was time for Future World!!!!- still a very empty park!



It was hot that day, so we decided to pop in to Club Cool to get a cool refreshing drink!


Snow White must have had the same idea!!

We stepped into the refrigerator of a room and tried all of the different types of Coca-cola products from around the world!



We continued walking along Future World, snapping pics of places weíll visit later in the trip!




However, we did stop to ride Nemo and Friends!





Me in my clamshell car!


Oh no! I was eaten by Bruce!


Just kidding! It was pretend!!


After that, we headed to The Land to get a Coke and fruit. I didnít get any pictures of the food, but I did get some of the building!



After our snack, we were tired, and I really wanted to go swimming! We decided to head back, and hang out in the resort for the night! Step dad read/napped in the room while mom and I headed out to the pool! After filling up our refillable resort mugs with Orange Fanta for me and Coke for mom, we stepped out into the blazingly beautiful WDW day! We lay in the sun for a while reading and listening to music until it was too warm that I had to cool off by jumping in the water. Unfortunately, I didnít take any pictures because I didnít want to risk my camera getting wet since it was not water proof! After our swim, we dried off and went back inside to change. And if memory serves me correctly, we ate dinner either Peek-a-boo or The Fountain again, but I didnít get any pics of it, silly me!! However I DO know that after dinner we had the most AMAZING shakes in the world!!!!
I had the banana and chocolate shake


And step dad and mom each had a Reeceís Pieces peanut butter and jelly shake


We ate them in the beautiful lobby, and mom took a picture of me in front of the lovely fountain!!


Mom and I kept exploring the resort, while step dad turned in early. We were dancing through the halls of conference rooms, and we decided to check out/use a beautiful bathroom! We were still being very silly!


We decided it was time to settle down, and get some rest because tomorrow we were going toÖ..THE MAGIC KINGDOM!!!! Yayyyy!!!

Day 4 next up!

I love them phone booths - a shame that the girl hung up and didn't want to play along!

Yay on spotting the Queen of Hearts! I've not seen many pictures of her on these boards

Love the WS pics - I can't wait to do some shopping in Epcot! Please tell me you had a caramel treat at Karamelle Kuche - I've heard the treats at that place are amazing!!

Did you offer Snow White the Beverley?!

Mmm them shakes look yummy!

Thank you! I took SO many pictures this trip! It's actually a bit ridiculous hahaha But some of them came out really good!! no, sadly I never did get a caramel treat, but perhaps my mom got a caramel apple...hmmm I'm thinking she did!

omg that would be too funny!!!!

They were so amazing!! I want one right now!

Glad you're reading! I'll post day 4 soon, my memory is failing me though so I need to consult with my mom before I post so everything's correct!

Day 4:

This morning we slept in and ate breakfast at Picabu and decided to hop in the car to go find a landromat to do some laundry and stop at the Winn Dixie to get some breakfast food. We were driving and driving around trying to find a Laundromat, but it was NOWHERE to be found!! We stopped at the grocery store and bought Croissants, Nutella (which took us FOREVER to find!!), plums, and some other toiletry items. We continued to drive around on our search before giving up at going back to WDW where we would go...to the MAGIC KINGDOM!!



We got there around 1:00, and we were not alone! It was CROWDED, so we werenít planning on staying long, however we did have ADRs for an early dinner at Crystal Palace. I didnít take many pictures today, so I apologize in advance! Itís hard to remember what we did without pictures!! Anyway, we walked down Main Street, glad to be back! I love MK because itís so magical, and even though my favorite park is Epcot, it is only in MK that I feel Iím REALLY at Disney World.


Just look at it! It looks so magical!


We headed into Adventureland and rode Pirates and then got FPs for SM for later that evening.


It was very hot so we decided to get a dole whip to share! It was so yummy!


Then we went on the Haunted Mansion, but the Brazilian tour groups thought it was a good idea too apparently! They are so loud and can be very disrespectful to other guests!! We finally got on the ride, and all three of us were instructed to smush into one buggie It was a little tight

After our spooky ride, our FPs for SM were ready, so we made our way over and were placed in the front!! Yay!! BUUUUTTT, we got SOAKED! I love that ride though! It never gets old!

We then decided to get off our feet for a bit in the HoP. I don't enjoy this as much as my mom does, but I'm sure I will grow a liking to it! After the show, we played around in the gift shop and I tried on some nice hats!!





We decided to make our way around the castle to Tomorrowland because we wanted to relax on the TTA PeopleMover. We love this ride because itís so relaxing and fun! On the way we stopped to pose in front of the castle!



After our ride on the TTA, we rode Buzz Lightyear and made our way back to CP because it was time to check in for our ADRs. When we got to our table, we found confetti on our table because of our celebrations!


So I made it into a 2010 for my graduation!


I love the food at CP! Itís always so yummy!! This is my plateÖ


Momís


And Step Dadís


Then Piglet and Eeyore came over to take pictures with us!




We wanted to ride the Carousel of Progress to let our very full bellies settle, so we headed back over to Tomorrowland, but stopped in ToonTown to take visit Mickey and Minnieís houses before they get renovated.



We went on COP and when we came out there was a dance party happening! We hung out and danced (yes we most definitely danced!!!) for a while until we went back to Main Street to get a good spot for the Electrical Parade and Fireworks!


After the show we raced back to the TTC to pick up our car and get back to the hotel. We HAD to do laundry, so we brought our clothes down to the ONLY laundry room for the ENTIRE hotel,,,,it was a bit busy! haha We ended up crawling into bed later than we hoped, but we were excited to snuggle into the heavenly beds of the Dolphin!

Stay tuned for Day 5!

Popped over to read your TR... no worries about it being almost a year later! Better late than never, right?

Wow, I had no idea that resort was so huge!

MK sure looks magical - can't wait to see the castle in person! I love all the shots in front of the castle.

Also the food at CP looks delish - we are eating there for breakfast and I can't wait!

Day 5:

We woke up late and hung around the hotel for a while. We ate our Croissants and Nutella for breakfast, and I really don’t know why I didn’t take pictures of our breakfast and snack foods! It’s a bummer because I would really like to remember what we had! But it’s ok; the dinners are the best parts!! Anyway, we went out to the pool to go for a swim. I read my new (at the time) Jodi Picoult book and listened to my iPod while enjoying the summer sun. Today was going to be a lazy day because we weren’t going to go to Animal Kingdom until the afternoon. This trip we did a lot of park hopping, so we were sure that we weren’t going to miss anything by taking a morning off. After our relaxation by the pool, we went back up to the room to shower and change for the day.

We got into our rental car and drove over to Animal Kingdom at 2:00, and made a bee-line for Expedition Everest! My family and I love this ride, though we are not big fans of Animal Kingdom as a whole. There were no FPs left, but the line was a 30 minute wait, so we decided to get in line. I did get to snap a few pics of the pretty scenery on the way, though.









The ride was so fun, but the gift shop was so crowded that it was hard to get out, let alone buy something or see our picture! We wanted to ride Dinosaur, so we booked it over there threading our way through the growing crowds. The line wasn’t too long (about 30 min again), but it was ONE BIG BRAZILLION TOUR GROUP! The waiting area was cool and it was a nice relief out of the blistering heat, but I remember the loudness of the queue! Once we were able to see the ride itself our moods uplifted, and were excited! The ride was fun, and scary! And unfortunately it was so crowded that I didn’t take any pictures of DinoLand, so you will just have to trust me that we were there! After those two rides, we checked Kali River Rapids, but the line was wayyyy too long, and I remember it being extremely hot that day, and we were getting cranky with each other and hungry, and since AK is so cramped when it’s crowded, we decided to head over to Epcot where we would spend our evening.

So we left AK, and drove back over to the Dolphin where we hopped on the boat to Epcot! Mom and Step Dad got fish and chips in the U.K.


And we ran ALL around the world to China where I got yummy orange chicken and rice!


We hung out around China, taking pictures of the scenery.








Then we went to Japan where mom bought me a pearl! I got to choose my oyster and then the Japanese ladies did a big ceremony for me! It was a great experience! I had my pearl made into necklace, and I love it!

After that, step dad left us to hang out at the resort and mom and I kept exploring the WS. We took some pretty pictures in MoroccoÖ








And in France too!




We saw crepes and decided we wanted one, so mom and I shared it, and it was yummy!



We decided to walk back to the resort and see the Boardwalk all lit up!




Pretty view of the Dolphin from the BW!


Day 6 coming right up!!
