MK Continued

Me taking video of my DH taking my picture.


Making our way into the Kingdom.

Our first magic photo, as you can see it wasn't so magic!

We had to make a stop to purchase a balloon for Kelly. She really wanted a Princess one.

If I had it to do over, I would have waited until we were leaving the MK to buy that balloon! It was a pain to deal with when riding!

Thanks. I was getting as many Photopass pictures as I could. My DIL & I shared the cost of the Photopass. It was a great bargain. I want to make a Christmas card with one of the photos.

MK Continued

Kelly's first magic photo turned out like our's was supposed to!


Anne & the girls.

We headed to the Haunted Mansion for our first ride of the night. We didn't need any FPs. The standby wait was about 15minutes. I really liked the interactive things in the queue. The girls had so much fun playing with the noise making stuff!

We get inside the mansion & we have that darned balloon to deal with. The CM was very nice & told us that we could leave it with them. So we were off, but I hit a snag! I had to force my Kelly onto that ride. She was crying, no I don't want to ride. She was so scared of that HM & I felt like a monster!
Her mother insisted they had to ride sobs be damned! I talked all the way through the ride telling her that it was just puppets & so on. I felt so horrible that I had to take her on that ride. Her sister was not too thrilled either, but at least she wasn't crying. If that had been my daughter instead of DIL, I would have given her what for. With a DIL one has to tread easily!

MK Continued

We decided to head over to TomorrowLand for the rest of the evening. This is terrible, but I can't remember what we did next. Anne & the girls went into Monsters Inc. floor show. We couldn't take the balloon inside, had to leave it outside the closed doors. Well after paying $9 for a balloon, I was not going to leave it there. So Bob & I waited outside until they came out. It was raining a bit by that time, but we were under a shelter & it felt good to sit for awhile. While we waited I got my first ever FP! We used it for Buzz.

They came out & Buzz Lightyear was next. The CMs kept the balloon for us & the shoot fest began. I outgunned Bob why a wide margin! It was the best I'd ever done, my score was 444,548; his was a little over 25,000! Whoo hooo!

After this we headed towards the bridge to watch Wishes.

MK Continued

I was starting to drag a bit, but I was not going to miss the new thing with the photos projected on the castle.





My DH took all of these photos. I was using the video camera. We were standing right under where Tink came sliding down the wire. I didn't realize that there was a live Tinker bell that slid from the top of the castle! That was so amazing to us, we were always too far away to see her clearly.

It was time to make our way out through the masses of humanity to leave plus keep the girls close to us. There was an incident that upset Bob & he is still PO'd about today.

There was a couple that were riding mobility carts. There were no health issues as Bob had seen them earlier hopping on & off the carts doing things. The carts were loaded down with bags of purchases. They just didn't want to walk like the rest of the crowd. These two were probably around 30. Anyway the husband was trying to push his way through the crowd by nudging people out of his way with the cart! Bob was so mad with these two, so rude. It would have been different if they were really handicapped in some way, but AFAIK they weren't!

We made back to CBR totally worn out. We were getting out early in the morning for EMH at the MK. Lots of Pixie Dust was coming our way!

We have had several of those magic shots not turn out! The silliest one is the hang gliding characters at Epcot. You are posed all squatted down and looking up, pointing, and then you get the picture and you are looking and pointing at nothing...

Great pics! Although you look a little grumpy in a couple? Mabye DH just caught you at the wrong moment?

We also loved the Haunted Mansion queue line, but you have to go the one way to get to the fun stuff...

I HATE the balloons at MK! They cost a fortune - most around $10, and unless you have a stroller to tie them to, you're stuck figuring things out in a lot of locations!

Beth, I was a little tired, so I can come off as grumpy. Plus taking my DGD on a ride that she most certainly didn't want to be on was upsetting for me!

Beautiful PP pics. They really turned out wonderful and your shirt is probably the cutest Disney shirt I have ever seen. I love yellow! Love that shirt. I want one!

Most of the PP pictures turned out pretty good. I didn't do much editing other than resizing them!

I got that shirt at Walmart a couple of days before we left. I got 3 different ones for $5 each. The shirts were on clearance!

Whaaaaaaat? Are you serious? Walmarts in Delaware don't carry stuff like that. That is a great deal.

Maybe I will hit up a Walmart when I get to Disney in December since we will have a car.

They had some really nice shirts, labeled Disney. So they are authentic licensed shirts. Walmart has a new selection now of shirts.
