Then we made our way to Fantasyland


We rode


ē Peter Pan
ē Itís a Small World
ē Carousel
ē Snow White
ē Mickeyís Philharmagic
ē Mad Tea Party








Then it was time for our breakfast reservation so we made our way to Crystal Palace. Tracy is a huge Winnie the Pooh fan (she even sleeps with one, donít tell her I told you) so the minute I found out she was going with me I booked CP for breakfast! We had a blast here and Piglet was giving me lots of kisses (I think the girls were jealous)

Next we decided to tackle the left side of the park so we started in Adventureland. First stop was the Treehouse. It was closed last time I was there so I was looking forward to it








The line was fairly long for Jungle Cruise but FP return was in half an hour so we grabbed out FP and headed over to POTC, which was walk on!



After POTC we still had about 20 min so we decided to go to the Tiki Room (which I had never seen) and the show was just starting. Now I kinda know why I have never seen it and if the kids donít ask I probably wonít see it again


Then it was time for our Jungle Cruise. Tracy had never been on this and you could tell because she laughed really hard at all the corny jokes (I love the corny jokes too!)








Next it was off to Splash. There was a long wait and only 30 min FP again so we grabbed our FP


Next we needed a cruise around the river on a Riverboat and took some pics, especially of the construction on BTMRR














Now it was our FP time so we headed back to Splash. This was another ride Tracy had never been on and she was a little fearful of the drops so I played with her a little bit


We were in the front row so when we did finally hit the big drop we were soaked. It was fun though.


Next was Haunted Mansion, which we all enjoyed and all made it out alive


We stopped to visit Donald





Now it was getting close to parade time so we headed to the front of the park and we noticed that the line for Mickey was only 5 minutes so we went in there.







Then we grabbed a seat right outside the train station to watch the parade








Bert was so cute

After the parade we decided to head back to FantasyLand because we had missed the Pooh ride. I have always used FP on this ride so it was kind nice to go through the regular line and play with all the cool little toys


Then it was time for the castle show, which was a good time to sit and relax











It was still a little early for our dinner reservation but we decided to check in anyway and what do you know we were seated right away!


Tracy and I got the Chicken sandwich and Sam got the burger. Cheryl asked for the Cheese steak without mushrooms and onions and when our food came it had them. When we finally found our waitress (who was never around) we told her and by the time she brought a new one everyone had been done eating for a while (the 1st one came out in less than 5 minutes) Then our waitress brought out our bill what you arenít even going to ask us if we want dessertÖ. Rude! Needless to say she didnít get a very big tip and we spoke to the manager about her. (I donít do that often) She gave us a couple FPís for any ride we wantedÖ bonus!


So then we deided to head off to TomorrowLand. Sam was dying to ride Stitch and I had never been on it so I was in. This was kinda neat and I just talked Emma into trying it on our next trip!!!!


We stopped for some pics








Next was Space Mountain (since we had FPís) When we got off we decided we needed to ride again!!!!! After the second ride we came out and it was really dark (man that was fast) so I looked at the time and realized it was after 7 so we headed to the castle.



We found a spot in the hub and claimed our space. I have never seen Magic, Memories and You or watched Wishes from this area but it was kinda nice. No one stood so we actually lay on the ground with our bags under our heads and relaxed. MM&Y was a great show and I am sad I didnít see it on our last trip and wonít miss it again. Wishes was of course as beautiful as ever!!!

Now the girls all had reasons they needed to run back to the hotel, but I was not leaving so they left and I went to Liberty Square to see Hall of Presidents (new for me and I thought it was good, donít know if I would do it every trip)


Then over to frontierland to see the Country Bears (another new one, might take the kids to see it but not every trip)


I was going to do Magic Carpets as well but it had a really long line so I grabbed a drink and went and sat on the Tomorrowland bridge and watched MSEP go by.


The girls came back by then and we went back to TomorrowLand. We rode Buzz (Sam killed us all) then we went to Laugh Floor (That Guy looked exactly like my new priest, it was weird)


Now it was almost Midnight and we headed to Main St to see MSEP.


I could tell the girls were ready to go and I kinda felt bad keeping them there so I said we could leave if they wanted. We did some more shopping on Main St. I saw that Mickey and Minnie were in their PJís but the line was an hour long and we were not ready for that (I may have fallen asleep)
We did grab a couple pics before leaving











It was 1am so we grabbed our stuff from the locker and headed to our boat. This was nice having a boat to go to!


When we got back to the room I was already in my jammies so I went straight to bed


We got to MK at 5:15am and left just after 1am so about 20 hours, I think we did pretty good!!!

3/1 - I woke up at 7am and went down to Roaring Fork and got some pancakes and a Tea. Cheryl went with me but the girls were still sleeping. After breakfast we decided to go for a swim. There were ducks swimming in the water with us



After swimming a bit we went and sat in the Hot Tub for a bit which was a nice way to relax our muscles after walking a lot the day before.


Then I went up to the room and all the other girls got up and we all packed up our bags. Then we went back down to Roaring Fork where I got another tea and rice krispie treats to take home and they got breakfast.


Then we grabbed our bags, checked out and headed for the Magical Depression bus


Stopped at the Disney store at the Airport and since we didnít see Goofy this trip I stopped to give him a smooch before we left





It was a good trip and was definitely worth it!


Great Joke we heard on IASW. What did the Buffalo say to his son on the 1st day of school?


Bison (bye son)
