I look forward to pics and details of the Christmas Party!

When does WDW start celebrating Christmas? I would love to make a trip down to see it all.

I think decorations start right after Halloween, but I don't think the Christmas Party starts until maybe the second week in November.

Only one more day of work before the trip! Hoping for a speedy Friday! So while I was at a doctors appointment on Tuesday, Kyle was at Target and picked up these.





Adorable, right? The first one is a salt and pepper shaker and the second is a bowl. I couldn't believe he bought them. He couldn't either...someone's becoming an even more of a Disney fan.


Day 4 plans!

Wednesday Nov. 16

This day will be devoted to Epcot. I really want to spend a lot of time in World Showcase. I plan to visit each country and drag Kyle through all the stores. I am going to wing lunch....which can be bad, but I can't decide where to go. We have a 5:50 ADR at Les Chefs de France. So excited for this! Wishing Remy would be there at that time, but oh well. Epcot closes at 9 so maybe we will actually go to bed early this night

I will try my best to go on Soarin. I really think it is the feet dangling free thing...I promise to try. I think you should give Coral Reef a try. The food was not bad, but I would suggest an aquarium view.

Pre warning, this update has few pictures, but I promise on the next TR I will have more timely updates, lots of details and lots of pictures.

We were headed back to the Magic Kingdom for our final night at the park. I was sad, but happy to be at my favorite place. We took the boat over one last time. I didnít bring my purse with because I really just wanted to get in the park right away. We headed straight for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.



Me excited, even though there was a line.

It was awesome as always.

We then headed over to Splash Mountain. There was a line and it was not moving.



We eventually got through the line and had an impromptu photo shoot.







We jumped on the People Mover and headed for Main Street. We stopped in the bakery for this.



So delish! There was a couple next to us who stared at me while I took the picture. I then saw the guy take a picture of their snack. Another Diser perhaps?

We decided to head back to Wilderness Lodge to start packing. We took the bus back and were back in no time. After we finished packing we were in bed by 11 pm.

The next morning we woke up and grabbed breakfast from Roaring Forks. After breakfast we headed outside and found a table to relax at before our ME pick up time. Kyle was sad.



This little guy came over to join us.



I put the camera away as we decided to head to the ME pick up. Just as we were getting up a black snack came from some of the landscaping and onto the cement slab about 15 feet away. I wish I would have taken a picture of it, but I didnít want to stick around to figure out whether it was poisonous or not. First time I have ever seen a snake on Disney property, eek!
We headed to the ME pick up spot and I decided to take a couple of more shots of the property.











Seriously 3 ME buses came before our pick up bus did. I canít believe there were so many drop offs. We were now about 15 minutes behind schedule. We ended up getting to the airport with about an hour and a half to spare. There was a family across the aisle from us who were talking about being late. I heard the husband say they had 45 minutes before their flight was said to leave. Talk about cutting it close! The flight was uneventful which was great. When we got home we took my brother out to dinner and called it a night.


Up next - Day 5 plans and TR link!

I absolutely hate leaving Disney, it is soooo depressing! That treat looks very yummy, was it a cinnamon roll? I LOVE Cinnamon Rolls!

I love the pictures of the resort, we stayed at WL in 2005 (holy cromolies, where does the time go)!

I'm so excited for your upcoming trip, I forgot, where are you staying?

Do you actually have to work tomorrow (Veteran's Day)? Well, it will probably help the day go by that much faster.

Sounds like we will be enjoying Disney at the same time! I leave tomorrow morning. I should be packing instead of hanging out on the Dis. But I needed to see me some trip report pics!
Have a great trip!

I know I sent you a FB message but I hope you have a great trip and that we can meet up on Sunday!!! I'm still feeling kinda yucky and was hoping to be better tomorrow to at least check out the AK parade and/or DHS lights but it's looking pretty grim at this point..maybe Sunday!!

Safe travels and happy packing!

I love all the new Target Disney stuff, I have to stop there tomorrow!

Can you believe I've never been to Main Street Bakery? I mean, I've been in there, but I haven't eaten there, the line is always crazy and Brandon never wants to wait. Maybe on our next trip I'll go by myself and he can go wander around or something! Everything looks so good from there!

Your WL pics are making me so sad right now! I want to be there. Now. Have I mentioned how jealous I am that you're going during my favorite week?

It was a cinnamon roll! It is so good! I love WL, wish we could go back this upcoming trip. We are staying at POP this time around. Hoping it is great!

I did have to work today The very strange thing is in my job I support Federal Government customers and they had today off. So it was a long slow day.

OH how exciting that you leave tomorrow! Looks like you are staying at French Quarter? I wanted to stay there but they did not have a room available during our full stay. When I checked again later they did have a room, but I opted to stay with POP. Hope you have a great trip!

about going to Target. Is Brandon supportive?

The bakery is worth the wait...but I suggest making it to Magic Kingdom for opening and going right there. If you go right away there is usually only a little line. Otherwise go at night. We didn't have a wait that night.

I want to be at WL too! Oh well, all in the name of budget right? Yay for it being your favortie week! Is it light crowds?...I am crossing my fingers.

Haha, I don't know, I haven't mentioned Target yet! We have to go shopping today, so we'll probably end up there anyway, and I'm not gonna go crazy with the Disney stuff, just get one or two things...

When I went this week in 09, I thought the crowds were lighter than the week we went in 08, which was in mid September. Then when we went last year, they picked up a little, but were still pretty light. I was annoyed last year because I thought everyone was catching on to what a great week it is to go, so I'm curious to see what you think of the crowds this year! I really hope it's not too bad, I'd love to go this week again next year. Have a great trip!

Hey Dis Friends!

Counting down the hours until my alarm clock goes off...3:15 AM to be exact! I swear, next time I am booking a later flight. I am all packed and all that's left to put in the suitcase is my makeup and the toiletries bag. It seems like only when I go to Disney do I pack a billion items. Anyone else feel the same way?

On day 5 - Thursday 11/17

We will start the morning at Magic Kingdom. I will ride Bg Thunder Mountain Railroad at least 3 times to get my fill. We have a 1:30 ADR at Kona Cafe and will then head back to the resort to pack We decided to spend the evening at Downtown Disney. Earl of Sandwhich will be on the menu along with a stop at Gharadelli if we aren't to full. The last day is always the sad day, especially knowing that you won't be back for more than a year.

Good night all, I am off to try to get a little sleep. I plan to be at DHS till 11PM tomorrow so I know I need it.

I can't wait for pictures and updates!

I hope you are having a blast! Let's see, right now it's noon here in Seattle, so it's 3:00 in WDW! According to the weather channel, you are experiencing 79 degree weather (nice!) and your temps for the next few days are the mid 80's, so jealous! Seeing that you left so early, I'm sure you are already checked in and probably at the park, again, so jealous!!!!

Earl of Sandwich is our absolute favorite, we always make sure to have at least one sandwich there on every trip!
