Then we were off to Lights Motor Action. Originally Ariana and I were going to skip this but once they announced Lightning McQueen was joining the show, we had to watch!





Yep, we'll skip it next time. I'm glad we saw it but I think I'd rather go grab an ice cream.


We slowly ambled over to set up shop for the Pixar parade and grabbed a treat on the way. The super nice guy at this cart gave Ariana a free Mickey Bar for her birthday! Yay super nice cart guy!!




This day was soooo hot for me, I remember slowing down and being fairly whiny while we were waiting for the parade to start. Honestly I so could have just hopped into the nearest fountain if it wouldn't have been so frowned upon.





We met more characters and were off to see Pooh Bear. Waiting in line we were giggling again at the honey honey honey honey honey picture.







Coming out of the Animation building, Demetri plunked into the stroller and asked to take some pictures along our walk. Sure!















Not too bad!

We got to the Star Tours shop and his pictures continued....






One last picture he asked me to take of him....



....and it was time to head over to dinner.

My kids first picture at the snowman. For some reason, we've always missed it.




Demetri had control of the camera again while we were getting our ornaments....





Once we were seated for Mama Melrose, I decided to try this again....




You know, just in case they changed it or something


The food was delicious! I wished Ariana's pasta serving was a bit bigger but she really enjoyed it and we had dessert coming too.










Throughout the dinner we were all trying to find Eeyore's Tail on the placemats the kids had for their meals. You know where they have a picture and you have to find the hidden objects? Well there were six hidden tails and we could only find five! It was driving us nuts and soon we were grabbing waiters and waitresses and asking them to help us.







Those guys weren't of any help and we thought we'd forever never know where that sixth tail was. Until....... Demetri spotted a manager at a nearby table. SHE should know -- right?!





She did!! We felt much better after that


Ariana's birthday treat arrived and once again she was very happy to be sung to....





.... and the kids got complimentary glow thingies, Buzz and Tink. Ariana's became a clip in her hair....





.... and we finished off a very yummy dining time at Mama Melrose! I'm so glad we went. This is not a place that George would go to so it was wonderful getting to go with Natalie. A hit!


Once it was time for Fantasmic, we headed over.





I didn't mind the seats we had but as Natalie said, it was pretty annoying listening to the group around us that was mad about their view. Honestly, I really wanted to tell them to get over it and stop complaining!











The bus lines were crazy CRAZY that night but it was another really great day!

I'm nearing the end of my free time.... let's see if I can get caught right up!


Our next morning kicked off with an empty Main Street.
































Once seated at Crystal Palace, it wasn't long at all before the characters were coming by to say hello....










A very cute autograph!




Ariana LOVES it when the characters have fun with Baby Simba





A parade and another birthday card....








I noticed there were changes to the flower arrangement when you first walk in to the restaurant... my favorite was the Pooh pumpkin.








One last picture with Tigger and the paper hats the kids made out of their meal placemats.....




.... and we headed back to meet a Mouse.

Tracy, Welcome back Demetri got some GREAT pictures, he can help Jack in Sept

So what was it about LMA you didn't like? We are hoping to see it because of Lightening also.

Sounds like Ariana had a great birthday, filled with a little magic

Can't wait to see whats next

sorry I posted in the middle of your updates, I didn't realize you weren't done

I love the eeyore signature. Very cute. Oh you two are making it very tempting to add a CP ressie. Looks like such a fun time. And LOVE an empty main street

for being caught up, you get a star for the day

Hey Jessica! Oh no, it's not that we don't like LMA, we do and your boys will LOVE it (there's some parts they should be prepared for), but Ariana is not as impressed with cars and explosions and what have you. I enjoyed Lightning's addition to the show but now that I've seen it, Ariana and I will go grab that ice cream while the boys see it next time.

I would love to see the pictures Jack and Demetri take!! We'll definately have to plan something!

You go girl!!!

I am not a fan of LMA either. It's OK, but kind of slow and just something I only needed to see once. My DH loves it though.

It only got put on the To Do list because I have never seen it and I agree once is enough

The downside of being better than everyone else is that people tend to assume you're pretentious.

Aw shucks thanks. Can't guarantee I won't disappear again but there does seem to be some light at the end of this tunnell that I'm currently in.

Demetri was happy to see McQueen and it is pretty cool, but yeah I'm good for now doing something else.

I wish McQueen was in it longer or one of our kids got picked to do the remote control thing -- now that would have been very cool!
