I like both effects on the photo, but I think I give the edge to the black and white. There is much depth to a black and white photo.

Thanks! I love teaching kindergarten... they are totally little sponges and they learn the second language so quickly!

I saw that you mentioned you were too chicken to try the Gumbo in the bread bowl. Next time you are there, ask for a sample and they will give you one to try
Oh! Good to know! I will definitely try it out then. I like that idea! Thank you.

OOPS! I'm so sorry! How did I miss this? Thanks for your input! I was kind of torn too, so I'm glad to hear what you think.

March 20, 2012, Part 4: Almost done of Fantasyland!

We continued our rides in Fantasyland. Next was Pinocchio.

Snow White was the last ride we’d wanted to ride in Fantasyland that was actually open during the hour.

When we were offSnow White, it wasn’t even 8 am when we’d finished all our rides in Fantasyland that were open! If you have the chance to go to a 7am early morning Magic Hour, DO IT! Peter Pan, Dumbo, Alice in Wonderland, Mad Tea Party, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, Pinocchio, Snow White. 7 rides in less than 50 minutes! We wandered through a shop nearby before we got in line for the Storybookland Canal boats. I have to do that in another post because I will have too many pictures for this one.

Here’s a few more I took while on our way to the Storybookland (I keep wanting to say Storybrookland… Once Upon a Time anyone?)

They were cleaning the monorail… or at least that’s what I’m assuming they were doing. I could be way off. They could have been doing some filming of the crowds… hee hee hee…

Sorry I lost my creative flair on the trip report. I’ll try to find it again later and get more into the writing. I should get my sister to do it, she’s the author!

On a personal note, I got my assignment for next year and I’m teaching French Immersion Kindergarten again! So excited, 3 years in a row. The most I’d ever done before was 2. In 9 years teaching! This will be 5 years in the same school too, which will be nice. I had taught at 5 different schools in 6 years before I started at this one.
Let’s hope that it warms up… at least enough to take the socks back off!

March 20th, 2012, Part 5: Storybookland Canal Boats

Right after rushing through eight rides before eight, we had nothing else that we wanted to ride in Fantasyland! Our fingers were numb and cold, but our feet were not so tired, because we'd barely spent any time in line. We got in line for the Storybookland Canal boats, even though it was not yet open. We were the second group in line.

Off topic: There is a TV show on ABC called Once Upon a Time. (I think I mentioned it before) Does anyone watch it? I love it! If you like fairy tales, you've got to see this twist on them! While in Disneyland, and now writing the trip report, I keep saying/writing Storybrook instead of Storybook. And even on this little ride, I was thinking more about the Fairy tale characters in Once Upon a Time and not Disney! And because of the show Snow White is totally growing on me!

Here are some pictures from the boats:

I don't recall ever, in my entire life, seeing someone sweep water off the streets, except for at a Disney park.

I can understand that. My next door neighbor is a teacher and next year she is teaching an interesting kindergarten class, it is combined pre-school, regular kindergarten, and a k/1 group. She is really excited!

Oh common! Don't talk like that, you are an awesome teacher! My daughter loves being in your class, and I am surprised how much she has learned in terms of understanding and conversing in a second language. I also appreciate how well we are kept in the loop about what is going on and what the kids are learning. Job well done from this parents point of view! I hope #3 lands with you in a few years.

Thanks for joining us. Many more pictures to come. I only took 4500 pictures during the week, which didn't seem like a lot!

Thanks. I seriously was not looking for compliments, it's just some days you doubt yourself! I am impressed every day with how much the students learn. And yours in particular has begun speaking much more French around the classroom. Here's to hoping to have number three as well!

I'm home sick for the second day in a row, but feeling a lot better than yesterday! Must have been something going through my classroom, because the other French K teacher e-mailed me and said there were EIGHT of my sixteen students out sick yesterday!!

I can't do much report card work since I left all my notes at school as I wasn't planning to get sick. So instead, it will be trip report work! I hope to have at least one update or two before the end of the day.

It's a Small World!

March 20, 2012, Part 6: It’s a Small World (Yes, in my Trip Report, It’s a Small World gets its own post!)

We started towards It’s a Small World next. I am totally amazed that it’s only 8:07 in the morning and I’ve been on so many rides. If there was ever any need for proof of the importance of getting to the parks early, then this is it! Even during Extra Magic Hours in WDW I don’t think I’ve ever been able to do so much in such a short time. I love teaching, but it really hinders my Disney visits! Hahaha

I really liked the addition of Disney characters on the ride. It was almost like hidden Mickey’s trying to find them, although they are a little easier to spot!

I enjoyed getting on and off the ride outside too. I wonder if I would like that as much in the rain? Probably not!


It's a Small World 18 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I have to ride IASW at least once a trip. I do enjoy it. The last time I rode it in WDW was extra special as we switched spots with some parents and two young boys. The boys had never ridden it before and kept going on and on about everything “Dad! Look at that! Mom, take a picture! Wow, that’s so cool!” Even turning around and asking us if we’d seen something. It made the ride extra special.

Back to DL in 2012: I might actually be warming up a little!

March 20, 2012: Part 7, Finding Nemo Submarine

Can you guess where we went next? Hahaha


Bathroom by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

After our first break of the morning, we didn’t ride the Bobsleds, but we walked by them. I really want to ride them, so I guess I have to wait for my next trip.


No Bobsleds today by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I’m not a smoker, neither is Blanche, but the other Golden Girl, Rose, is. We thought of her while walking by this area.


Need a smoke break? by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

So we decided to get in line for Finding Nemo if the wait time wasn’t too long.


Mine, mine! by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Nemo 1 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Blanche had been to Disneyland twice, but both visits were before Disney’s California Adventure. It had been a while since she’d been on 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, but she remembered it and was looking forward to the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage. So was I, but I look forward to any and all rides, except for the spinny ones that make me dizzy. By 8:37am, we were in line. I was still having a hard time believing all the things we’d done that morning. The line seemed to move so slowly, but maybe that was because we hadn’t waited all morning. It was really only about 20 minutes. It was, in all honesty, something I thought I’d be scared to do. I always thought I’d be terrified to go down in a submarine, but this was a Disney submarine, so I figured I’d be fine!


Nemo sub 2 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Nemo sub 3 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Nemo sub 4 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Nemo sub 5 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Matterhorn by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Nemo sub 6 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

There was this cute little one year old on her father’s knee beside me who kept us quite entertained. She kept waving and saying hi, and we’d wave back and say hi back. I think at one point her parents got a little annoyed with us because they passed her to her mother. What did you expect us to do? Blanche is a paediatric nurse, I’m a kindergarten teacher and between us, we’ve probably got about 30+ nieces and nephews between us! We love kids!


Darla by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Diver by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Pearl by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Crabs by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

We wanted to ride Space Mountain next, but it was down and they weren’t giving out fastpasses.


Store by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


I want to play too by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

It was only 9:15, but we’d been on the go since about 6:30 and we were starting to get hungry, so we thought we’d find a second breakfast somewhere in the park.
