That would have been real hard to explain to the kids for sure.

Maybe the characters weren't stopping by because you didn't have kids with you. Maybe they figured the adults were just there for the food? But that kinda sucks cause you pay for the character meal to see characters, so they should be entitled to stop at every table.

Great photos though, even if they are of them passing. And the food photos are making my mouth water. Yum!

After breakfast, we headed over to do a picture at the Partner's Statue together. Ty took this picture on our way over.



Here we are:




We headed towards ToonTown, but decided to look and see how long the wait was at the Princess Fantasy Faire....it said 30 minutes, so we got in line. When it was our turn, we go inside to see Tiana, Ariel & Jasmine. Our first stop was Tiana.



I thought it would be cute to have Tyler down on one knee as if he was proposing.....so he did that with Ariel. I was disappointed to find out that the photopass photographer didn't take that picture. Maybe they're not allowed to do that?? They were standing right there with me when he did it...so not sure why.



Here's both of us with Ariel.



And now with Jasmine.



After our tour of PFF, I took a pit stop & Ty took some pics from around the area as he waited.

The ToonTown Gate:




The Minnie stamp on Ty's hand from our character breakfast:



A few pics from the Princess show at PFF:





And a pic of the PFF building.

No, they were coming up on the patio area & passing all the tables, even the ones with kids. I put the blame on the character manager....they're the ones telling them where to go. I saw a number of families complaining that the characters hadn't be coming to their tables....so it wasn't just us. Just an off day for them.

Laurie that is too bad about Minnies. I had never done that one so we did it as a special last min thing on that Sunday and we had no ressie or anything. The trick was we went during MM and it was PERFECT. I know a lot of people say why waste your MM but for us we had just done it the day before and it only took us about a half hour to eat and so we still had some time and the BEST part was NO ONE was there. We got TONS of pics with characters and got some with ALL of them. I think it is just the timing.

Bummer that you didn't get a great experience

It wasn't horrible.....just a little different experience then our norm. I felt bad for the tables with kids at it on the patio with us......the characters were there....just not making the route up by us. We got to see a few & they were friendly & posed for pics, gave high fives & such.

Timing also can play into it......one time we went at 9:30 & the breakfast ended at 11.....we usually stay for the 90 mins allowed unless we've seen all the characters......we saw 14 characters at Minnies. You had the ones still out & the new batch coming in.....we thought that was perfect!!

Ty and I headed into ToonTown.....a fun place for pictures & to check out. Make sure when you go, you push doorbells, pull doorknobs, etc to see what happens.....lots of hidden gems in this area!!

The fireworks.......




The Gag Factory sign:



The Camera Shop:



The mailbox & Post Office:




The One Way sign:



Ty doing his best Derek imitation at the Chicken Sign:



This was Derek in 2010.....lol



City Hall:




Me trying to go in the little door......



Tyler trying to open the vault!



In Case of Emergency:



The music started up & the horns stuck out from the thing on top of City Hall....I had never seen that before. Not sure if it was the top of the hour or because it announces when someone is coming out the doors.



See the horns are out up above but this is how it looks the rest of the time......



Right after we took those pics......Goofy comes dancing out.







We followed him & got in line for a picture!!

We wandered down to Chip and Dale's Treehouse.












We went between Donald's Boat & Goofy's House and got pics of the waterfall.




We also took pics of the really cool light on Goofy's house.




These pics are all from Donald's Boat:










Goofy's yard is a fun place for little kids to play....here's a couple of the things adorning his yard.




One more pic of the Gag Factory Store:



As we were leaving ToonTown:




Ty got a few good pics of the Water Tower at ToonTown Train Station.

I think you're not alone in missing things in ToonTown.....since it only has the 2 rides and one of those being for little kids.....this "land" tends to be ignored by many. If they do go in...they only go as far as Roger Rabbit's CarToon Spin.....so they miss out on all the details that go into this area. It's lots of fun back there!!!
