I am all caught up.

I have never really seen the Dolphin mentioned much on TRs. It looks like a nice place to stay. They seem to have some good options too.

I love your World Showcase pictures. No one ever wants to spend time there, my family only likes Future World. I love when people take a bunch of pictures b/c that is the only way I get to see it.

Congrats on your graduation and good luck finding a job.

The Dolphin really is a nice place to stay! It can get loud at times because of the conferences it holds, but it's very big, so it doesn't seem so crowded! The Swan is a lot quieter and smaller, but we like the business of the Dolphin! We love that area anyway because the BW is right there and it's an easy walk to EPCOT or a bit longer walk to DHS! And the boats are usually quick and painless too!

Thank you! I'm loving the WS more now as I'm growing up! I think I'm getting to the point of actually appreciating the work and time Disney puts in to making the countries so realistic! It's beautiful!! Plus I don't mind the tons of walking without going on rides as much as I used to! I do like Future World though! It's exciting and very fun!

Thank you and thank you! It's definitely been a busy week, but no luck yet!

Day 8:

We woke up early to check out and drive to the Poly to find that our room was READY! At 8:30am!! Very impressive!! We were staying CL at the Poly, so we went into the Hawaii building to check in. The view of the castle through the windows in the lobby was amazing! I took some pictures of that later. We made our way up to our room to drop off our bags.

Room pictures:










View from our balcony!




We did a bit of picture taking on our way to the monorail to MK, but we were hungry because we had ADRs at CP for breakfast! So we hurried up!!!















Finally we got to MK and made our way to CP for our yummy breakfast!!




There was a heart-shaped confetti waiting for us on our table for my parentsí anniversary!






For some unknown reason I did not get any food pics! BUT we did take lots of character pics!!

Piglet was first




Then pooh




Then Tigger!




Tigger insisted on taking a picture with the two lovebirds too!




After our filling and delicious meal we went on Pirates to settle our bellies. Yo Ho! Yo Ho! A Pirate's life for me!

Love the update! Poly is at the top of my wish list for resorts to stay at. I wanted to do the character breakfast @ CP on our last trip. But, Reid is not really into Pooh & friends, so we skipped it.

Thanks! We love the Poly! It's a beautiful resort! CP breakfast is great! Too bad Reid doesn't like Pooh and friends,but hopefully he'll change his mind and you'll get to enjoy it someday!!

One thing about traveling in July is the amount of South American tour groups! They seem to take over the parks, and from our experiences, are rude and pushy too! When we went there were so many groups, and they always seem to frequent the parks we do! We can't get away! Just look at those yellow shirts!






We headed over to BTMRR to get FPs, and passed Splash because we had already ridden it last time and the line was VERY long! I did get to snap a few pics this time though!






Then we decided to take a ride on the Liberty Belle. We hadnít done this in a really long time, so mom thought it would be nice. It was, but it was also hot and crowded! Mom got some nice pictures of the scenery though.





Waiting for the boat to load




























After the boat ride, we decided to wait in line for Haunted Mansion since it wasnít too long.

Hahaha, remember in the Haunted Mansion we were surrounded by an enormous group of the South American tourists and they were sooooooo loud that one of the CMs came over and yelled at them, but they wouldn't shut up and he threatened to throw them out? Everyone who wasn't in the tour group cheered the CM ! hahahahah!

Oh, the Poly looks so beautiful! I'll get to see it for the first time in September when we have dinner at 'Ohana!

And we love breakfast at CP with Pooh & friends! I have some great pics from our previous trips there!

I can not get over that sea of yellow shirts!

And that's great about the CM yelling at the group to be quiet!

We love the Poly! The atmosphere is so incredible and relaxing! Yay! I'm glad you get to go this fall! I've never been to 'Ohana (surprisingly ) so I'm curious to see how you like it!

It's a great place to start off your day in the MK because everyone's (usually ) so friendly and the characters get you in the mood for the magic! Plus the food is really really good

Oh my goodness, I know! It was crazy, and that's just one group! HAHA they were everywhere!!! But if you don't let them bother you, then they can't spoil your fun!

And yes! They were so loud, but that was hilarious when the CM was like actually yelling at them! Mom and I almost died because we were saying the same thing (but quieter of course)!!!

We went into Fantasyland to ride Small World and get FPs for Peter Pan.






















It was time for a potty break, but I didnít have to go, so I snapped a few pictures of the buildings.






It was time to leisurely walk back to Frontierland to ride BTMRR.



We saw a few Toy Story favorites on the way!





Funny story: weíre boarding BTMRR (mom and step dad together, me alone). I get into the seat, and all of a sudden this Hispanic girl about my age slides- no CRAMS herself into the seat next to me! I was shocked because she was instructed to go on the next train, and here she was next to me! I think she realized she made a mistake once we headed out of the station, but of course it was too late. I knew my mom and step dad were CRACKING up, and I couldnít turn around because I would lose it! It made it even worse that she barely spoke English and we would ram into each other every time we turned a corner! It was definitely the most awkward ride I have ever had! The second our train stopped to unload, I jumped out and ran out the exit before I started laughing hysterically! Phew!

Finally out of there, we headed over to use our FPs for Peter Pan, on the way taking pictures of the scenery!
