After our stop for Dole Whip we stopped at a place that during the MVMCP had hot chocolate and cocoa. But it had now been transformed into Pixie Hollow. I am a tradtionalist and prefer the old Tink post pants. I watched the first Tink movie but couldn't get into the other ones. Claire still loved visting with Tink and her friend.



We didn't get a schedule when we walked in but knew the first parade was around 8 ish and we looked at the Villans castle show and that wasn't starting for a long time either so we headed down Main Street and into the pavillion where Mickey Mouse is. The Winnie the Pooh Gang was outside but the line was a mile long.
I had seen the pictures of the talking Mickey but we had the Halloween Mickey and Minnie. There was only one family in front of us so we were able to walk right in.



Mickey was talking a lot with his hands so it made it difficult to take a good picture.


We exited and came back in to get in line for the Princesses. The wait was about 20 minutes. While we were in line we heard the fireworks going off. What could we do? I didn't want to get out of line and come back.
I really wish I would have taken video of her interaction with the Princesses. Claire is really talkative and she was talking for about 5 minutes to Rapunzel and Flynn. Flynn even offered to let Claire use his horse to help reach the monkey bars. She had them cracking up as well as the people patiently waiting for their turn.




Next we decided to park it and find a spot on Mainstreet. All these years we have found a seat in pretty much the same area. Just when it looks like there are no seats left there is always one left by the garbage cans!

Soon we were asked to tuck in our legs and the Headless Horseman made his way down Main Street

It wasn't long before the parade started. I still say my favorite parade is the MVMCP parade. This one was good but very short.

After a very long day we headed to the resort for some much needed rest.

HS Day

It was a busy day and when you are paying extra money to be at a party you should try to stay as long as you can. That's why I highly recommend taking a nap during the day for both the parents and kids Even though we had been planning this trip for two years I felt like we weren't following a specific game plan. It made for a less stressful trip on one hand but we did know there were absolutes we had to do.

When I had planned this trip I had originally planned a day at HS, the party day, and a day at AK. However, life happened and we had to cut a day back. I chose to cut AK. We hadn't been to HS in the longest because quite honestly it's my least favorite of the parks. We aren't big thrill ride people so I've never been on TOT or Rockin Rollercoaster. But I also have never been on other rides like Star Tours that I really have wanted to go on for years but have always had too young of children. I knew this would be my chance! This day we also had to return to DTD to test market some merchandise I can't discuss back at BBB and had to be there by 3 so that cut our day by a few hours.

We were a little late getting up and had breakfast at the resort. I had my hubby go get a breakfast combo from the food court. He's diabetic and needs to load up on food before we start doing a lot of walking. The kids and I had oatmeal and poptarts I purchased from Garden Grocer.

We didn't get to the park until after 9. I love that it's a short trip from CBR. My lovely Florida friend and fellow Diser Katy made Claire a beautiful tu tu and dressed Claire in it this day.



We were then off to something we have never ridden before, The Great Movie Ride.




Next we were debating what to do and Clarie was complaining of a stomach ache. We went to the bathrooms right by the Little Mermaid. I love that attraction. Claire didn't remember it because she was three last time she went.

We walked through the Muppets area and wanted to go on Toy Story but the return time was after 4 and I knew we would not make it back. We stlll have never been on this attraction. I took a picture of Claire in front of the fountain.




I don't know what it is but Clarie is still petrified of 3 D rides so we skipped Muppets and turned the corner to find Phinneas and Ferb.
God Bless these actors in the costumes. It was in the 90's. There was a chacter change over. I was expecting to wait but new ones came out.


It was down the streets of San Fransisco where they were beginning to hang the Osbourne lights. Still something I have never seen lit.


Next up: Star Tours, Beauty and the Beast, and Lunch at Sci Fi!

On our walk we also found Mader and Lightening McQueen. Claire was really afraid to go by them and as she put her hand on the car it reved scaring her silly lol


Next stop was another ride I have never rode, Star Tours. I was determined to get the whole family on board. All of us made it through the line.


http://youtu.be/YTfJeRTalLI

We got all the way into the shuttle and Claire said she wasn't feeling well so my husband took her off. I am glad he did because the ride was really rocky and bumpy. I loved it! My DH had never ridden it either. As we exited I told him to go get back in line and I would take the girls to Beauty and the Beast. We made it just in time. The show started 5 minutes after we got there. It brought back memories for me because I remember when my oldest came and saw the show when she was 5, she was absolutley mesmorized. Claire was too!It seems like they cut down the show but it was still good!

Next it was off to lunch for the first time at Sci-Fi. I thought the atmosphere was cute. We had our own car with hitchhikers in the back seat. The food pictures came out really dark. I had a steak, DD had the kids meal with mac and cheese, hubby had a hamburger, and I think we all had a shake. I enjoyed watching the B movie trailers.



The food pics are really bad because it was so dark:





Next stop back to DTD

After lunch we had to head back to DTD. We had an appointment to test a new top secret product for Disney. I can't say what it is but it's something every Princess is going to want. While we were waiting Claire made another friend.



By the time we got done at BBB we had to leave for our ressie at Cape May. It was our first time there. The Beach Club Resort is beautiful! But I still liked our CBR better While we were waiting in the lobby a DVC rep gave Claire a few stickers.


We have never been to Cape May before and were a bit confused as what to do and where to go. There really isn't directional signage anywhere. I didn't realize they have buckets to put your seafood in until someone pointed it out to me.



We were on DP so I thought we got more than our moneys worth! I can't imagine having to pay out of pocket for some of these buffets

Dessert was awesome! They make these Oreo truffles exclusive to the Beach club. Yum!


After we squeezed ourselves out of our booth we headed for the dock to grab a boat back to HS. I took some pictures of the other resorts along the way.




By the time we got back into the park it was time to get our seats for Fantasmic. Next time more about Fantasmic.

By the time we got back to HS it was time to head to Fantasmic. I have never seen it. I am always the one to go back to the hotel with the children. My DD was only 1 1/2 last time we went. And I think my Mom was with us that trip so my DH and I had a melt down. This was my lucky night! And it was Claire's first Fantasmic too!

The theater was all ready half full and we found some seats in the middle.

We got a chance to do the wave:

And then it was time to start Fantasmic:

We made our way out of the park and I tried my best to snap some pics while walking lol



I thought it was pretty cool! Then it was back to the resort for some much needed sleep! Next day more DTD and our resort day

Great TR so far! I like CBR..we have stayed there quite a few times.

Is that Tinker Bell's new costume?? We were in WDW in September this year and she was wearing the dress like in Peter Pan and NO hat. I will be disappointed if they changed her costume to the one that is in your picture.

Yep that's Tinks new costume. I like the dress better. I guess that's the one from the animated movies they made. I don't like it lol

I am still not sure if you are supposed to load the buckets up with your sea food or put your shells in there. No one explained it to me.
