We love the Mexico ride. I just wish each country had a little ride like that!

It looks like you had a fun dinner at Chef Mickey's. We have only done breakfast there and we always have a lot of fun. I'm really liking the Mickey fingernails in the picture I want those!

Day 7 – Thursday September 29
Park – DHS
Reservations – Mama Melrose

This is my brother’s birthday so I made sure as soon as I woke up to text him and wish him a happy birthday!

I was up at 8am and off to the food court for breakfast. I didn’t want to wake Tracy so we just went without them. I believe they came when we were finishing up and me and the girls went to take some pictures of the Animation Resort construction.

There was a wall on the Generation Gap Bridge but I managed to shoot around it





This must be the Lion King area







It’s really coming along!

The girls were fascinated by this turtle



After I was done taking pictures I realized I was wearing my crocs and they were really hurting my feet the day before so I sent Eryka up to the room to grab my flip flops



We met up with Tracy and grabbed a bus over to the Studios.

We stopped for a few Photopass pictures







We were of course on our way to TSM when we ran into some celebrities



Check out his gun! He says it’s in case there’s any monkey business!!!



He gave Emma a ring





The kids really had fun playing along with these guys!

So I thought I would do a mini TR for my 3 day Disney trip.


We left Canada Monday 2/27 @ 8pm and drove to Buffalo. We stopped off at Walmart since the US one has some things we don’t. I made sure to get the girls these




Then we headed off to the Days Inn across from the airport where they would be nice enough to keep our car while we were gone. We checked in and updated our facebook then went to sleep so we could get up early


On 2/28 we got up at 3:45am. Breakfast started at 4am and we wanted to grab a bite before our flight. We made our way to the airport at 4:30 and checked in.


We headed through security where my friends told the TSA they left their ears at home after I went through wearing my Minnie ears (Geez people we are going to Disney get in the spirit!!!)


We boarded shortly before 6am and the flight was only half full so we spread out and relaxed


We arrived at MCO around 8:30am (a little early) and grabbed our bags and headed off to the ME area. Now I had changed our resort and not told the girls so I stopped at the counter to get new tickets to get us to the right resort


We were put on a bus right away and the driver told everyone where we were going. The girls looked at me like I was going to get them lost and I told them I changed us from Music to Wilderness Lodge! They were pretty excited!


Finally got to sit in the front and get this pic!











We arrived at the WL at 9:30 and as we walked towards the front door a CM came up to me and said are you the Ashton party? I was stunned, how did she know that?


She took us to the front desk and we checked in and our room was ready!!!




















We got room 4097 which is right above the Check in Desk. We didn’t have a great view off our balcony but it was a convenient location for us so we were happy. We check out the room and changed our clothes then decided we needed some retail therapy (4 women on a trip with no men or kids, what else would we need) so we headed to DTD.

We got a new driver that was being trained and needless to say he was VERY slow. It took us over and hour to get there


We hit


• Days of Christmas
• Mickey’s Pantry
• TrenD
• World of Disney
• Art of Disney
• Little Miss Mismatched
• Lego Store
• Once Upon a Toy
• Goofy’s Candy Co.


I know I spent a lot of $$$ in WoD especially since I got Emma the Monorail
While in WoD, ShaeLee and I had been facebooking eachother our locations and we finally met up. It was really nice to see her and her family! I was surprised they were able to walk after they all ran the Princess Half Marathon on the weekend…. Way to go guys!!!!














After all that shopping we decided to head back to the hotel so we could change before we made our way to dinner. We got to the bus stop and asked the driver if the bus was going to WL since it still said DTD on it and she said yes so we hopped on. At Pleasure Island they changed drivers. Next thing we knew we were pulling into FW I asked the driver if it went to WL and he said no we had to get off and take an internal bus. Man was I mad… I had to make my reservations and I didn’t need this. Eventually the Yellow bus showed up and we took a tour of FW before heading back to WL…. Finally


We went up to the room and got changed and all put our new ears on for dinner. We stopped in the lobby to get a pic of all of us and then we were off to the Grand Floridian!








I had booked 1900 Park Fare for dinner to celebrate Tracy’s and my Birthdays. The girls were all really happy with the food and we had a lot of fun with the characters.

















I had ordered the Chocolate Slipper for Tracy for her birthday and they brought it out… it was gorgeous and I hear it tasted pretty good too!





After dinner we headed back to the hotel and the girls did some stuff in the room and I headed down to the Hot Tub… I needed to relax my muscles for the next day!


After a nice long soak I made my way back to the room, got my park bag ready for the next day. I stopped at the front desk to ask what time the buses for MK would start the next day and they told me 5:30am. I asked really cause the park opens at 6 so you would think they would start earlier and all the guy said was sorry. I was not impressed so I figured we would just take a cab.


I went back to the room and went to bed

I woke up the next morning shortly after 4am. I got all m y stuff ready and got dressed and headed downstairs. Cheryl went for a smoke and I headed to the bus stop to see if there was any sign of a bus. There were people there and they said the buses started at 4am…. Really (stupid guy at concierge )


I got the girls and we just missed a bus but got the next one.


We arrived at MK and it was fairly busy. We got in a line and shortly before 6 they let us through the gates. They also gave us One More Disney Day buttons











Shortly after they did the opening show which I was hoping would be a special one but it was just the normal one they do.












Then they let us in the park and everyone headed straight for the stores. We did run in and grab a T-shirt for the occasion





We took some pics of the castle and I think it looked cool
