Hi! Glad you're here! Yes I do, and I'm lucky to be so close to her!! I bet he will be! However, I have never been this obsessed with Disney as I am now I guess I never really appreciated it for all that it is!

Love that you got to dance with Goofy! Also wow on them desserts - they look gorgeous!

I had to laugh at the spontaneous shot your mum got - at least you will be able to laugh over it every time you see it!!
It really is! I have not either, but my mom had eaten there on her last trip and booked an ADR for us. I was unsure of the food, but it was delicious!

The characters are great! Especially since there were very few families there! We were able to interact a lot with them!!

HAHA That picture was too funny! I think I was actually crying after I saw it! I'm chuckling now thinking about it!!

Day 7:

Wednesday morning we had yet another pool day, and we packed up our clothes because we were leaving the Dolphin tomorrow morning! We had lunch at the Fountain, where we met Steve Bliss (an Ohio State University football coach). He was there for a strength and conditioning conference. This conference was huge too!! There were so many coaches and trainers here! I was really excited because that is the field of study I want to do in college, so seeing this conference made me REALLY excited!!! Anyway, Steve Bliss was a very nice man and had a great convo with my parents (we’re big O.S.U. fans!!). After our lunch, we hung out at the hotel, and explored the different floors! After a while of hanging out in the room, we headed out to DHS! We had ADRs for dinner at Mama Melrose.



We were given bread and oil



I had tomato and mozzarella salad to start



And Chicken Parmesan for my entrée



Step Dad had Sausage and Pasta



And mom had Bruschetta to start



And Penne alla Vodka for her entrée



The atmosphere of the place was really cool!! And I loved the pictures on the walls!











For dessert I had Cannolli Cake



Step Dad had Hazelnut Cheesecake



Mom had Grand Marnier

After dinner, we were stuffed!!! We decided to shop around a bit before trying any rides! Mom really liked taking pics of the décor, but for some reason Fozzy kept popping up in the picture…has anyone seen step dad lately?? Hmm, I think he may be a part of this!









I loved this Mickey!!! – Soooo cute!!



Outside I started making a snowman!





We kept taking pictures of the Muppets…











We continued walking through the Streets of America!















I got lost!



Ahh! She scared me!



We went into Writer’s Corner where I read a princess book!

After story time, we went over to the Great Movie Ride.











Then we went on Star Tours because it had been a while since I have been on it. Mom doesn’t like that ride, so step dad and I went on the space adventure together. After we landed back on Earth, we decided to check out the Journey into Narnia- Prince Caspian thing since we had never done it. It was actually really interesting and cool! We wanted to try TSM, but the line was too long! So we tried TOT, too long! Then we tried RNRC but guess what….tooo loonngg!!!! So instead we took some pretty night time pictures and got a caramel apple and a blue raspberry slushie and watched some American Idol Experience on the jumbotron outside!









We walked back to the resort because this would be our last night at the Dolphin!! BUT we were moving over to my favorite resort ever….THE POLY!!!! We were so excited, but sad to leave our newest home! That night we finished packing our clothes and went to bed at a decent time to wake up to the Poly!!

So for some strange (and annoying) reason, I can't seem to see my pics on here. It says something to do with exceeding the bandwidth! It's probably just my school's problem. I'll try to fix the problem, but if not then I'll have to wait till I get home which is on Sunday!!!!!!

Thank you! I'm doing fine now! It was a very minor one anyway, I'm just injury prone. I think I get that from my mom

Thanks! It is difficult where I live though, haha, not many choices!!
