Mary Poppins sounds like lots of fun. I love the "rum punch drinks" line. Too cute. It's amazing how in character they stay!
Voices of Liberty are definitely a talented group of people!! According to the boys, the American Adventure isn't worth the wait, but it depends on your opinion!

Mary Poppins was great! The characters work so hard, as a character server, I can tell you, especially with some of the things people say, it's hard to not crack! (though, at dinner theatre, we get a lot more innappropriate things said )

Thank you!! I can't take credit for all of them, they're a combined effort of Nick, Amy & I! I'm glad you're enjoying

Yeah..it's an odd one...we'll be finding out what Nick thought about it shortly! I can't say I liked it, but I can't say I disliked it either...it's an odd one...

Illuminations!

As Nick began his walk back to Epcot from Hollywood Studios, Amy & I jumped on a monorail back to Epcot. We had plans to meet up at the Martin Short sign in front of the Canada pavilion at 7 (maybe 7:30?) to grab a snack, and snag a spot for Illuminations. On our way back in, Amy & I couldn’t resist a photopass!





We had planned to meet up with everyone, as Tyler had disappeared after the American Adventure earlier. We later found out that his day went like this: he stopped to ride Mission: Space twice in a row, on the orange side of course! A CM even told him that it was an intense idea! And a second ride on the orange side of Mission: Space, well, let’s just say that it leaves ones stomach in not too great of a mood! After his space adventure, Tyler left back to Pop Century for a nap that ended up taking up the better part of the day, and he never made it back to Epcot



Once meeting up in Canada, we started to walk around the Lagoon for a nice place to sit and wait for the show to start, when we hit France, well, if you know me at all, you know that I couldn’t resist another Grand Marnier Slushie!! The other two got some ice cream, (it was a hot evening!!) and we settled down in a spot right against the railing in Japan.







Within about twenty minutes, which we killed time by looking through our photos so far, and just taking a break, the show began. I’ll go through my schpeel now; Illuminations is a great show, I really did like it! It will take 2nd on my Firework/end of the night show scale though! (3rd if we include Hallowishes!) I love the “reflections on earth” side of things, and that they don’t just make it another display of simple fireworks (it wouldn’t be Disney if they didn’t!)

And now, here are a million pictures!



























There were a couple of points during the show that the fireworks that launch off from around the World Showcase, were DIRECTLY in front of us, let me tell you! That is some scary stuff the first time it happens.

Now that we had had our fireworks fill of the night, we decided to slowly meander out of the park. If there was one thing we had learnt, was that it was not worth it to run for the busses, we had time, it was only around 9:30, we could wait. On the way out, Nick took the opportunity to share his opinion on American Adventure.



And Amy & I took some time for a pic in Mexico!



And of course, one last pic of the happy team now that we had split off & done our own thing for the afternoon!



I have it in my notes that we were back to the hotel in 1 hour, not sure if that’s once the show was done, or how long everything took with the lines & junk. We then shopped around, picking up any packages that we had in the gift shop & then headed back up to the room.

Tyler was awake at this point, and was a little sad he had missed Illuminations, but it didn’t seem to bother him too much. We discussed going down for a swim, or playing some Disney Apples to Apples, and I think someone may have gone down to the pool, I’m not sure. I, however, after a long week of walking, and a busy day ahead of us, knew what I was doing! Soaking in the tub!! (In my swimsuit so I could still talk to the others) This is a major key for anyone who doesn’t stay deluxe, and is hot tub-less at the resort! Last trip, Emily & I filled the bath tub with hot water & climbed in, in our bathing suits of course, to soak our tired legs, and IT WORKS WONDERS. I, naturally, brought Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows with me, but still didn’t manage to make it through the Battle of Hogwarts as we kept having conversations through the wall! (Don’t worry though, I have finished it before, about 6 times haha)

After that, it was time for bed, it was our last full day in Disney the next day, and we had BIG plans!
Stay tuned!!

Those slushies look amazing right now, not sure why (it's definitely not hot!) but I want one!

Ha, I've never been in American Adventure just because it seems so boring. I hope they never do the rumored Disney America or whatever just because Disney's track record on historical America theme parks is not great. (Also, it would probably be cheaper to actually see the real landmarks vs. seeing the Disney version )

I really like Illuminations too; do they still do the massive fire plumes? That was always my favorite part.

Animalistic Adventures!

We awoke on our last official day in Disney, and it was sad to be the last day, but we did end up also being a little happy to soon be headed home, (or at least...to have separate beds/rooms for a little bit) in the next day.

Today we all started with a food-court breakfast again, and today was also the day that as we were heading down to breakfast, Amy & I noticed that our refillable mugs we had gotten with the dining plan & only used once...were missing...which we thought was extremely odd, as they had been sitting in the same place all week, and why on earth would housekeeping want them? We made a mental note to talk to the front desk on our way back in that evening to see if we could do anything about it.

We ate down in the Pop food court, I couldn't tell ya what anyone else had, but I JUST remembered that I had chocolate chip pancakes! They were pretty darn good!

After the boys finished eating, they ran back up to the room really quick, and then met us all out at the bus stop (and yes, it actually worked out this time) When Tyler came up, he had an interesting story to share: apparently on his way up to the room, a staff member had came up to him, handing him a reusable mug saying that he had left it down by the bar earlier in the week. Well...that's where my mug had been...Tyler had clearly been using our mugs to drink out of while he finished the bottle of crown, and forgotten about it. When you look back on it, it's actually pretty funny now!

Once the bus was there, we hopped on, which one, you may ask? Why, we were headed to Animal Kingdom...for now... We had made a plan the night before, and were planning on sticking to it!

Our first plan: to brave the yettie...yet again!









I was lingering a little behind to snag as many pictures as I could, it was our last day, and I wanted TONS of memories to savor!



Not to mention, everyone was in good spirits, and would stop for some good pics! Ahh! There it is, the big drop! Eeeek!



So excited! I had become such a thrill ride junkie this trip!| Hey! From not being able to go on anything, to doing everything but Mission: Space & Space Mtn & RnR, I think I was doin' pretty good!

We got to the park a little after 9, probably closer to 9:30, so there was a bit of a line, and lots of time to actually take in all the detailing in the cue









Josh Gates (?) footprint!! This one was specifically for Emily, who was on our May trip, and was more excited about it, than actually going on the ride!

Then, we were off!! As we had gone through all the rides, and I was a lot more comfortable taking my hands off the restraint bar now we had decided to do some silly poses for our ride pics, make them more interesting!



Once we disembarked our train, we jumped right back into the single rider's line, and were boarded once again in no time!



(I didn't do anything cool during that one, so no pic! haha)

We left Asia behind us, knowing that a fast pass would be no good to us, and we headed back to Africa, while making some more decisions. Nick & I then strayed to Camp Minnie Mickey to catch the just starting Festival of the Lion King (you had to know that was coming, my favorite show, skip it? Heck no!) While Amy & Tyler went over to Dinoland to om nom nom with some prehistoric friends!



Thanks to the overload of FOTLK pics, this is where I have to leave you now, I will update again tomorrow morning to kick this trip report in the butt! I also have to start getting ready as we are going to see the MUPPET'S today!! EEEKK

(Also, random, but has anyone else, after spending time in WDW, gone to a 3d movie and expected air/scents/water to come spraying at them? Yup....it's a weird thing when you brace yourself for it & then remember that it doesn't happen out here in the real world! )

I'd never thought of it either! It was definitely the photopass guy's idea!

I would kill for one of those slushies right now...and it's in the minus celcius temperatures up here! I would always be able to drink them!

And yes, I'm pretty sure they still do the fire plumes...

My Dream Job

Where I left off, Nick & I veered into Camp Minnie Mickey while Tyler & Amy went on a prehistoric adventure in Dinoland. Our target: why, Festival of the Lion King, of course!! As I've already stated, my dream job, GAAAHH, it's just so incredible! I won't lie, the FOTLK soundtrack usually accompanies my cardio workout, it's the perfect 20-30 minute workout!!





Tumble Monkeys!!







If you've ever thought about stuff like I think about while at Disney, you must have had the thought that they are just ripped, and in the greatest shape of their lives. Doing something like this 5 plus times a day?! Just doing one show a night & I shape up, it's gotta be amazing!!

Be Prepared for some fire dancing!!







And of course, Can You Feel the Love Tonight; I swear, one of these days, that'll be me... *swoon*















*sigh* such an amazing show!! It's the main reason I'd even go to Animal Kingdom, I love it so much. Lion King was (and still is) one of my favorite classic Disney movies, and the show is just so incredible that I will always love it. Here's the best youtube vid I could find of it (the bird girl is amazing, such beautiful dancing!)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqQxVGZ5RH0

Just gotta love it!!

After we left FOTLK, we met up with Tyler & Amy on a bench on the way out of CMM, and our Animalistic Adventures were done for the day. Next up, HOLLYWOOD!! We would be stars someday! We jumped on a DHS bus and were on our way.





Our first stop: why down Sunset Blvd of course!! We checked the wait time on Tower of Terror, one of my new favorites, but it was already up past 70 mins, so we decided to skip it, and head over to Rock n Rollercoaster.



One of the great things about today was that we had already experienced all of the rides, so when possible, we were able to jump in the single rider lines to save time & manage to get more done!!

Up next: the show that we missed last time!! Beauty & the Beast. This show might even top FOTLK, B&tB is one of my faves, and the fact that this is a broadway style show just makes me so happy (I'm actually seeing it on Broadway in January!! eeek! )

However, this will have to be in a separate post, as (surprise surprise) I have too many pictures of it!!

2 Weeks Til Auditioning!!

Alright, so what happened here was I was typing it up on the Disboards, when I usually use word, to make these problems not happen, and hit enter, and it posted far too early. SO, I'll use this as a real life update!!

We have a mere TWO WEEKS until we go to Disney World to Audition. I may or may not have stated earlier that the audition website went down, and the audition we were planning on attending wasn't up anymore, thankfully a couple of weeks ago, it was re-posted However it does say a lot more about character performers (being friends with Mickey & Minnie) than it does character look alikes (being friends with Tink & Princesses) so I'm not sure if this is exactly the audition that we want, but it'll be great to just get the experience!!

Hopefully it goes well, and then when the dance auditions come around, I'll know kind of what to expect. I do also have plans on auditioning for Disney Cruise Lines sometime in the near future.

In other, other trip plans; I've decided that for my Surprise mother daughter trip, I will tell her at Christmas, I'm going to wrap up everything separately, numbered from 1-10 (say thats as high as it goes) and the last present will be the planning dvd, and a book full of pictures from past trips/google/the Dis that will explain what we're doing, and such! I'm SO EXCITED for that!!

Tale As Old As Time

We had just settled down in the Beauty & the Beast theatre, and were discussing the show, Tyler wasn't sure if he was going to like it, as he hadn't really liked FOTLK, and wasn't sure of his opinion on theatre stuff so far. He decided that he did NOT want to skip it though, as he wanted to do nearly everything.

Soon enough, the show was started!! Nick & I were hoping that it would NOT be the same Belle we had seen last year (and Nick had seen earlier in the week) as she was clearly opera trained, and would drag out the notes too long, where as Belle didn't actually sing like that at all, it kinda ruined it for Nick, as for me, I just wanted to see as many different casts as possible!

Well, we were in LUCK!! This Belle was different, and was absolutely BRILLIANT, she looked the part, and sounded incredible, and from what I could tell, had more dance training than the other one. I also noticed a few of the dancers in the cast were the same, and the one who was the witch this time, had just been a "blonde girl" last time.





















Around this point, was when I started noticing some other things about the rest of the cast, things that of course, would only go through my brain. Haha! With the dancers, it was pretty easy to tell who had been trained in just dance, and had only danced before, like, step turn kick, in competitions, versus those who had actually done theatre, or any form of cheerleading, when "faces" come into play. Or those who had just started doing the show, and weren't quite comfortable in it yet. The things my brain thinks of!











Another thing I noticed, the show goes from the Belle/Gaston mash up, to Belle being in the castle with this transition; the narrator goes something like this "due to unforseen circumstances, Belle ended up in an enchanted castle" the way they do it just makes me laugh, I don't mind that they cut out 3/4 of the movie, it needs to be done, but it makes me giggle.













The curtain dropped, we hooted & hollered, and turned to Tyler, his thoughts: "it was great!!" He liked it way more than FOTLK, and he then started comparing the quality of the show to the ones at the dinner theatre we work at, to which I HAD to laugh. Disney has millions of dollars....dinner theatre, not so much. That, and if you've studied theatre, they say that the levels of theatre starts way down at the bottom with Mime, Clowning, then Dinner Theatre...yup...can't compare that!

With our musical adventure behind us, we checked the wait time for ToT again, and it was still ridiculously long, so we headed out for some shopping on the way out of the park. While Amy was picking up a Grumpy bobble head for her dad, was when the rain started. Now, it wasn't that bad at all, so we braved it and headed for the bus to conquer our next park!

Tut Tut, Looks Like Rain

I just have to say, that the title of this entry, I actually say pretty much every time it does look like rain, it’s a thing I do, weird, I know.

So, where I left off, we were just finishing up at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and the rain had just begun! By the time we had gotten to the bus stop, it was starting to slow down, and knowing how HUGE the Disney property is, we figured by the time we got to our next park, it would probably be done, or at least just spitting.

Our next park was: EPCOT!! The plan of attack for this one was to hit up Test Track, possibly Spaceship Earth, and Nick really wanted to see Captain EO, as he had missed it the day earlier.

On our way in, we stopped for some photopass pictures, as they would be the first of the day, and it actually turned out to be one of the best pictures from the trip, it’s framed, and soon to be on my wall!!



After the group shot, the photographer said he wanted to get a ladies only picture, and as he took a few, and then never called the boys back for a boys only picture, we joked that he had wanted the “not so pretty ones” out of the picture,





After he scanned our card, we were on our way, on our way to Test Track that is! As we weren’t too concerned for riding this one all together, we jumped right into the single rider line, and let me tell you, these lines are just amazing. We skipped right through the cue, didn’t even have to watch the video (which was quite alright with me! ) We made it all the way to the front, were given our row numbers, Tyler even made it into his own car, and out of sight….and the ride appeared to be shutting down…at least temporarily. Amy & I were right up by the exit, and could hear the cm’s talking about it, and, after running back to Nick & talking to him, we discussed our options, and decided to just leave, hoping that Tyler would figure out that we were out the exit, in the gift shop. Along the way, we joked that he was stuck in either the heat room, or out in the rain I know, we’re great people.

Nick & I had to run out to the bathroom while we waited, and this was the point that it became very apparent who lived somewhere where it rained, and who wasn’t used to it. It wasn’t even that bad!! I spent half a year living in Vancouver, so I know now rain, it was just “raining” and there were quite a few people who thought it was “pouring” yeah…not so much…I will give ya this, it was slick enough that I nearly died going into the bathroom, wet flip flops & wet floors, not such a good combo!!

After averting crisis of falling, I made it back to the Test Track gift shop, where Tyler had found Amy, and funnily enough, been stuck in the heat room!! Ahh, good times hey! We decided we didn’t want to get back in line for it, and Amy & I were just about ready to go, so we split up. We had an ADR for later that night at Magic Kingdom, so we said we’d meet up at 7:45 there, and the boys went there way, while we went ours. They browsed through some gift shops, and paid a visit to Michael Jackson.





Verdict is….Nick LOVED IT!!! He wanted to go again & again, but Tyler vetoed that out! They both bought posters, (one of which is so graciously decorating the walls upstairs of the house I live in…not my choice! ) and Nick also bought a t-shirt.

On our way out, Amy & I tried to get some pictures of how bad the rain had gotten, or at least, how dead, or poncho covered the park was by this point. Anything out in the rain, would have been dead, we even wanted to bet that the Norway ride had a huge line!





As you can (maybe) tell, we were under the awning for the Electric Umbrella, and slowly made our way out of the park. Along the way though, I figured we had to document the moment, so I ran up to a photopass girl, and asked if she could take some pictures of us in the rain, and here’s what we got (if you look at the two tones on my shirt, you can see how wet we were!)





(Also, there are just moments when you ask me to pose with arms up that my dancer/gymnast come through in pictures… *sigh*)

And with that! EPCOT was done, Amy & I ran up the ramp to catch the monorail & head over to our last, and most favorite park of the day!!

Dreams Come True!

Amy & I had just narrowly escaped a very wet Epcot….if getting caught in the rain is narrowly escaping…and jumped on a Monorail that would take us over to Magic Kingdom. I had made an ADR for dinner that night, plus there were evening EMH at MK that night, hence ending at that particular park. That, and it’s my favorite, so why not?!

We finally reached our destination, and headed off the monorail & breezed through the gates, and bag check. Here, is where something a little funny happened, the security, bag check guy, was an older gentlemen, and while looking through my bag, made some comment on how I must be a dancer, while I tried to figure it out, he laughed, and pulled out the roll of sports tape that I had in there. Haha!! Guess it gave me away!



Yup…look at that right there, I cannot wait to see that sight again soon!! (This is currently the lock screen on my phone!) After grabbing a pic of that, we stopped for a photopass, I mean, hey, it was our last day, and we needed to get as many pics as we could!!



We were nearly all dry at this point! Once inside the gates, we realized we had yet to get a shot with the Halloween decorations right by the flag pole, so we jumped in line for one! This photopass guy was younger & definitely attempting to flirt while taking our picture! Haha



Once our photo session was finally completed, we decided that it was time for lunch, and a snack, we hadn’t really eaten since that morning at the hotel, and were getting hungry, but wanted to make sure we didn’t eat too much, we had dinner booked for later! So, where else to go at this point but the Main Street Bakery!!



Oh my goodness, the smell of this place is quite possibly one of my favorite smells in the world!! There were so many choices!! I finally came to terms with a Turkey Sandwich, and a Banana Bread, Bread pudding for dessert, with of course, a bottle of water.



Both items of my lunch were absolutely amazing, the sandwich’s bread was a little too thick, I’m pretty sure I tore off half of the top slice halfway through eating it, but hey, it’s all good. Now, the bread pudding, WOW, amazing, treat of the day!! (So far, that is!!) I couldn’t tell ya what Amy had, but I know she got a cookie for her dessert, and it was clearly Disney sized, cause it was HUGE!

After we finally managed to get through our huge & delicious meals, we started to make our way around the park. I’ve lost my page of notes, and it’s been a while, so I’m going to assume that we may have ridden a ride of two, but were just taking it slow, the park was still pretty crowded, so we were waiting for EMH to start before tackling those kind of things. As we walked towards Frontierland, we saw PETER!! He was just skipping through, headed to the back, about 10 feet ahead of his handler. This was the first time we’d actually seen him out and about for a meet & greet, so we asked when and where he’d be back.

Now knowing that he’d be out at the Adventureland bridge, we grabbed some more water, and a seat to pass the time people watching while we waited for him to come back. Around the last day, I started to really only want bottled water, rather than filling up on tap water, something I noticed was that it smells the same as the water in Pirates, and that just makes me not want to drink it.

Anyway! Soon enough, Peter was back out!! He picked a nice spot that was more shaded, and started to say hi to everyone!





We had finally done all of everyone’s favorite characters! Goal achieved!! Heck yes! The Castle Show was about to start, and since we were pretty much in the hub already, we decided that we’d help some dreams come true next.

I really like this show, the whole “DREAMS COME TRUE” chanting thing, not gonna lie, I tear up a little bit when it happens. The show has some good dancing in it too, so it really does keep my attention!





































Here’s a video if anyone wants to watch:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QD5tLmJ9NBc

Pirates, Princesses, dancing & fireworks at the end, yup, you’ve got me there!! Once the show was over, we made a game plan, Amy, who had been wearing running shoes when we were caught in the rainstorm, had some very wet feet. We had plans to meet up with the boys at 7:45/8:00pm ish for our dinner reservation that evening, so we decided we would re-meet up then and there. Amy was headed back to Pop to change her shoes, she really didn’t think she’d make it the rest of the night otherwise! With a plan made & decided on, we split up our separate ways!!

Best! Day! Ever!

Where I left off, Amy and I had split up, me to stay at the Magic Kingdom, and her to run back to Pop to change her shoes as they were soaked thanks to the rain.

I thought about all the possible things to do, figured I might do Phillharmagic, but didn't want to do many rides, as MK's rides aren't really built for single riders. I wandered through Main St, and did a couple laps of the park just people watching, before I decided; hey, I've got a lot of time to kill, I may as well meet Rapunzel!!

The line had been not the greatest, and there was no way I was going to make everyone sit through that wait, so now was definitely the best time to do it! They had her in the Fairtale Garden, with one group of people, and another line building outside of the Garden. I got in this line around 6:55pm, and killed time by looking at all the other pictures, and just taking everything in.

Soon enough, we were let in and they brought her out (I, along with everyone else, was crossing fingers for a surprise Flynn, but no luck!)





There was a small boy in line a couple of families ahead of me, and I didn't hear the exact exchange, but I'm pretty sure he proposed to Rapunzel, as I heard her exclaim "I have a new husband!!"

I was impressed with how fast the line was moving! Yet, she was still getting in so much interaction in with everyone in the small amount of time that you were with her. Now it was my turn! I knew the drill, handed the attendant my camera & the photopass card, and went up to meet her





She asked where I was from, and after finding out it was Canada, she asked how it was, I said cold! Her response was that thankfully, having lots of hair she could keep herself warm, and that she had never been there, but would have to get Flynn to take her sometime soon





She was honestly perfect, definitely the 2nd best princess of the trip, hands down. I would love to "be friends" with her as well, I like the princesses that have some spunk to them, she was awesome, and I'm super glad I waited in the line (it took exactly an hour from getting in the line to leaving the meet & greet!)

While I was off meeting Princesses, Amy was back at Pop taking a break, and wandering the resort, here are some of her pictures!

Ahh! It's almost time for your auditions! Good luck!!

I always wonder about those performers, if they're a hired troupe or actual cast members or college program, etc., etc. because it seems like once you get a REALLY GOOD Gaston or FOTLK member or whomever you'd want to keep them forever. And it would be kind of hard to get enough CP people around. My boyfriend always gets upset because I like to sit near the front at dance (well, ballet, we never see other dance really!) performances because I don't care about seeing the whole thing, I like to watch the footwork (it's what I was always best at, and usually ballet scenery gets boring really fast because it's rather sparse and doesn't change that much. Also - the faces are usually funny and don't really ~further the story~ for me since I'm so familiar with most of the traditional ballet canon by now).

Rapunzel/Flynn is the one line I really, really want to stand in at the Christmas party; all the other princes are rather beige-y and lacking in personality and I wouldn't want to waste my time with them (princesses are excluded from this because they can be seen normally). I'm glad that everyone seems to be getting a personality in newer movies, though I like brunette Rapunzel better than blonde Rapunzel (I would think it would be pretty traumatic to go back to that hair after it having led to her being kidnapped, etc.! Also it looks really uncomfortable to have that much hair ).
