Phew! on that last picture of Matthew. Looks like i am going to have to take him in for those eyebrows!!!! HA HA HA HA poor kid.
Guess who perked ME up when i was really feeling awful??
Why am i standing like this???

swoon... HE WAS AWESOME!!! Sooooo in the Jack character it was AMAZING! he had such a great time with the kids! there really much of a line so maybe that was the reason he spent so much time... Meghan was excited to show him her Pink and Purple Hair He was AMAZED!






we visited with him for quite some time trying to figure out how to get the Eastland out of the Chicago river!!!













Next up... Wishes.
NOT so happy with the pictures AT ALL

I don't know what you are talking about because those pictures of Wishes are great!

Love the pics of Capt Jack too. I hope he is out and about when we are there!

yay!! love getting home from work and having lots of updates to read and photos to check out.
First of all....you took some great pics. REally. It's so hard to get night ones I think and I remember trying to get some at the Christmas parade and it was impossible! Also...I didn't see myself in any of your party photos bummer!

Funny that you drug the boys onto It's a Small World. I didn't even attempt that because I was worried about David fleeing the World on our first night

Hey..you look cute w/ Captain Jack! He's pretty cute too!

Ahhh Thank you!!! i wish the pole and that guys head wasn't in the way!!! Capt Jack is a GREAT meet and greet. I understand all of the face characters are 'in' character.. Jack was over and beyond!!!! He was awesome with both kids and adults. it was a riot!!! If he is out you must see him!!!
you have to have at least ONE awesome thing on your trip since so many will be closed..
If someone comes up to you for a survey of anything make sure you do it!!! might have a bit of magic afterwards!!! you will see on our next day!

Thanks!!! It's been a while since i was able to do a update. Now that things have calmed down i can catch back up! I hate that your report is done!!! sad!
Night shots are hard most of the newer camera's have the ability for night and fireworks!!! amazing what the little buggers can do now!
It's a small world is all about the nostalgia, WAY too creepy HA HA HA.. I heard there is a book somewhere about it?!?! Don't do that to David.. i don't you will ever be able to go back. It's something for you and your daughter!!! Now we all have bragging rights saying we did it!

How can so many of us on this board be at the same party and not one of us is in someone else photos??? I don't get it...

Looking at all the pictures it is DIET time again.. Lean Cuisine Anyone??? ha ha!

still need to mention I did not see ONE LIME GREEN Mickey head!!!

since Tom has to watch them he wanted some action too.

can't take him anywhere!
We then went on Space Mountain! This was our first time ever!!! i had the first seat and had NO idea what to expect. Nicole did go on this too! WE LAUGHED SO HARD, had such a great time!! what a fun ride!!! i am still kicking myself in the behind becuase i did NOT take a picture of Meghan on this ride.. you know how they take the pictures? well Meghan's eyes were almost popping out her mouth was as wide as her head! we were laughing SO hard at the picture we were falling over! She LOVED SM and we of course had to do it AGAIN! after about 3 turns on SM it was bathroom break and of course found another DSA!!
During this time a show started. I don't know the name so if someone does please pipe up!

the rest of our little group all regathered to watch the show!

kids were jumping up and down Mike said HI to them!!!









How do i NOT have a picture of stitch?!?!?! he was the best! oh well...
This is another attraction i think doesn't get a lot of attention!!! this was GREAT! Zack was picked on the screen as being a Monster.. and Joe Did something too but escapes my memory!

loved the little show and now off for whatever we find!
the construction is on it's way to almost completed! so excited for this!!!!! cannot wait to go back for it!


on our way we HAD to do the tea cups! they were closed on our last trip.

Tom LOVES to spin out of control, Matt and i went on together while Tom and Meg went on another... it was ugly.after this ride we had to stop. my stomach was in an uproar! Tea Cups + a lot of O'hana food + drinks=
Had to stop for a break..


Joe had to get up and dance!!

Great job on the Bonafka Trip Report! We had a BLAST! Yes, I got teary eyed seeing the Osborne Family Lights but they were so breathtaking! I am truly a giddy school girl in Disney and it was so nice to share it with a friend that appreciates the magic like I do!

A highlight for me was riding Space Mountain for the first time! The not so good part was riding it a second time right after the first time! NOT recommended for people who have motion problems! I should NEVER have pushed my luck!! But the second time I did ride it with my DH and DS6. My DH does not do rollercoasters and my DS6 isn't much of a thrillseeker so seeing how much fun they had on the ride was worth the sickness that followed!

Our previous stays in Disney have been at CBR but I have to say that POR might be my new favorite. However, I would like to stay in the Mansions next time. They had a "Gone with the Wind" feel that I would like to experience.

We normally do our Disney trip in September but after seeing Disney decorated for Christmas, I might try for November more often. The lights are incredible! The castle was just spectacular! But the Osborne Lights truly stole my heart! The mixture of lights and music and the feeling you get standing in the middle of it all just can't be described! Pictures do it no justice.

I have to say thank you again, Bonadurer Family, for giving us great memories that will last a lifetime! I hope you had as much fun with us as we did with you!

Has anyone seen the 2012 merchandise yet??? SO SAD we are not going back this year...
as for the fireworks??? Wow did it get wild!!! what happened to my camera there???











did i post this???

We did stay until the end, took the bus back to POR kids ALL asleep yet were sports when it was time to get up and walk AGAIN to the room.. everyone was dragging including the adults.. We had to get some sleep because of the nuts we are we had to catch rope drop at MK in the morning!!!

This would finish up the MVMCP! I did love it!!! i was not expecting so many people.Then again I didn't know what to expect!! Tried not to do TOO much research on the party as i wanted something to be a surprise. we did have lots! Things i wish we could have done..
Think i would have enjoyed it MUCH more if i wasn't feeling ill...
Been able to have met up with some of the DISers who were there as well.
I would do it again!!!
On to the next day at Magic Kingdom! Rope drop and pirates!!!
