Oh I know and my husband was devastated!!! The last time we went down there, she refused to ride it with him. Well, she kept telling him, "I promise! The next time we are here, I will ride it with you daddo." Well...not anymore!! lol

I wish I had taken a picture of her face when we told her they were closing it. She looked like she was so mad and then she was saying, "Well, that is just ridiculous! We need to go down there before they close it!" Of course, we didn't make it down there.

Okay, now the moment we had been waiting for!!!

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!!! Ooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhh















Here are some random photos while waiting in the line





My attempt to get the Phoenix at the entrance to Dumbledore's office













So, we finally got on. This time Hollie closed her eyes when it came time for the dementors and spiders. lol My mom liked it, my sister liked it. Shelby wasn't tall enough to ride and did not like that! We decided to ride the Flight of the Hippogriff next

My sweet girl in line









continued in next post

Now, after we finished riding FOTH, it was time to get a wand. The moment my mom was looking forward too. Here is sweet Hollie with the wand of her choosing and also her yummy butterbeer. Yum!!




We headed back to Suess Landing to do a few things there








Now after the girls rode the carousel, I saw something. Something enough to make me say something and my mom turn and look at me really fast to ask me what in the world!!

Now, something about this weekend that a lot of people might not know. It was the weekend of Spooky Empire. What is that you ask? Well, its a convention where celebrities are in Orlando. It's usually celebrities from horror movies. Well, I just happened to walk past a celebrity. We were walking back towards WWoHP and I saw him. Walk right past me! It was Tom Savini. I know some people might not know who he is. He happens to be one of the best special effects makeup artist out there. I saw him walk by, and I literally gasped a little. Not loud enough to where he heard me because that would be embarrassing. lol But my mom heard me and asked what was wrong. I told her and she looked at me like, who?? Too funny!

We went to look around WWoHP and as we were leaving, someone had stopped him to take a picture of them. So....I pulled the I'm-gonna-take-out-my-cell-and-act-like-Im-calling-someone-but-Im-really-taking-a-picture



So there you go! You might not know him, but it was still cool. Then we were walking past the train to Hogwart's and I spotted another celebrity. I didn't take a picture of him because he was posing with someone from Universal but I actually saw the picture on his website and here it is. Let's see if you know him



Butch Patrick!! How cool is that!!! Little Eddie Munster!

I called Chad to tell him and he thought it was pretty neat!

We walked around some more and saw this guy



We had pretty much did all we were gonna do. My mom and I wanted to go to the Jurassic Park area, but my sister was tired. So, we went in a few stores and my mom got this cute picture



We headed towards the front of the park. Grabbed some yummy cinnamon rolls from Cinnabon and headed back to the hotel.

I am gonna post our photopass pictures next. Our trip was pretty much over. Nothing exciting happened next. We went back to the room, packed up the van with things we didn't need, everyone ate dinner, then we went to bed.


I do have a surprise though.....

We are actually going back in December. You may notice that by the ticker I just put up.

I am debating on doing a TR though. This one took me so long to actually finish. I think most of it was how much rain we had down there and the damper it kind of put on the trip. I wish that the first trip with my mom, Hollie, my sister, and my niece had been better. But, of course my mom is already planning the next trip we take. It will have to be when my new niece is a older since she is only 2 weeks old.

I won't type up anything with the photopass pictures. They will speak for themselves. Sorry I neglected this TR. Hopefully if I do another TR, it will be taken better care of. lol

I did not know the make-up man, but I do know who Butch Patrick is. I would not have recognized him on my own, but when told who he was, I would have said an 'Oh, yeah, it is, isn't it?'

I enjoyed seeing your pictures. It really doesn't matter how long it takes for a report to get done. I just enjoy seeing pictures of my DIS friends having fun whenever.

I sure know what you mean about the rain. It wears on you after several days of getting in and out of ponchos, racing into gift shops when it starts to pour, etc. Luckily, in all the trips we have taken, we have only had this last one when the rain just wouldn't quit. Usually it's just the normal Florida afternoon rain, or maybe one day of rain.

So glad you can have happy thoughts of a trip on the holiday horizon!

I think we waited a good 45 minutes if not longer. It was the longest we have had to wait for it. The crowds were high that day.

LOL

Aw, thank you so much!
I didn't really mind the rain that much. I think I had planned on this super exciting trip with it being my nieces first time there and the first time my sister and mom had been there in years. But, we know there is always next time!

It does wear on you. That is the first trip I have been on where it rained that much. We have been pretty lucky in the weather department down there.

Oh me too!!! I am ready to see some Christmas decorations!

Thanks Dawn!

I am going to do a TR for my next report. You have heard about the wonderful times I have with the MIL down there, so the TR should be a hoot!

Thats all folks!!!! As you can see, we didn't have many pp pics. I usually have at least over 300 on a disc when I buy them, but this time we didn't.
