Love this idea! Sadly, I've never seen the original Journey into Imagination, OR the current one.

40 days is so soon! Goodness.

Joining in! We will be there the same time as you April 6-14 and are staying 5 of those nights at the Boardwalk!

My son and I stayed there in November and absolutely loved it.

We, too, own DVC and home is BLT.

Keys to the Kingdom sounds like lots of fun. We are doing the Magic Behind the Steam Engines tour on Tuesday and the dessert party that evening. I had no idea that MK had 7:00 am EMH on that Saturday. I need to go back and re do by planner. Thanks for that tidbit of information.

We will probably be there at the MK Opening on Easter. Probably won't stay all day but love being in the MK on a holiday until the crowds come!

Great countdown idea! I love park music, I'm kind of obsessed with it, actually! One Little Spark is such a great song, I love that once you hear it, forget it, it's stuck in your head all day!

40 days already? And I was happy I was at 67 today!

Okay now I'm curious. What was the original Journey into Imagination ride like? I've already fallen in love with the new version. Tell me more!

Love the music idea AND the fact that you put a link. I'm guilty of listening to Disney movie and theme park music in between trips too.

The newer version is cute but the original was a lot more fun. You should do Journey Into Imagination on your next trip!

Cool! Maybe we'll see you at the Boardwalk.

Don't you love DVC? We have not yet stayed at BLT (that was my other choice for this trip) but it is going to be next on my list!

Sounds like you have some great plans too. I know it's early but I'd really recommend doing the 7 am opening. When we did it the park was pretty much empty!

Thank you. I have to say I was sort of inspired by your quotes idea. It got me thinking that I need to start a countdown!

The old one focused more on Figment and Dreamfinder. I know they brought Figment back (can't believe they ever took him out!) but the original was a lot cuter. I don't remember tons and tons since that was how many years ago but after I saw your comment I went to youtube to find some videos of the old version. The couple parts that I remember pretty well are the opening with Dreamfinder and Figment in the Dreamport and then a white room with a "carousel" of animals. I guess it was just a lot more whimsical than it is now. Also the Imageworks had a lot more to it. Aww I miss it.

Here's a link to the original ride if you're really interested. I'll only post the first part-the other 2 parts are on the sidebar in related videos. Enjoy!

WOOT! Joining in! Glad to hear you are going on another Spring trip, always very fun And your plans look great so far. Totally would've guessed KTTK for your surprise though I wasn't sure if you did or not, but that's awesome you are doing it for the first time. I was about to see if I could do that if I was going to Disney for my birthday since I would be 16 by then, but not happening sadly as you know. Anyways... can't wait to find out more about this trip!

P.S. Love the countdown idea! Love "One Little Spark" and ever since I saw a video of JII on YouTube, definitely want it back

Late to the party, but so glad I found your PTR!

Your plans sound good. I would love to take the Keys tour one day--can't believe I haven't already!

Hi Timmy. Welcome!

Yes, gotta love going in the spring. Even though it's busy we always have a good time. Can't wait for it to get here!

Glad you like the countdown idea.

Yay, glad to have another follower! The F&GF is one of my favorite times to go. Can't believe the festival starts this week. But that means our trip is getting closer!

Welcome. I'm glad you found me too.

The KTTK tour is going to be awesome. We've talked about doing it for a while now and we finally decided to go for it.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far. We had a little bit of Disney magic here in Milwaukee last night. The Disney on Ice show was in town. A while ago Emma said something about going to it so we decided to go. The show that was here was Treasure Trove and it definitely didn't disappoint! It had characters from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves to Tangled and everything in between. I took a bunch of pictures and thought I would share some of them. Be prepared for photo overload!



Mickey Mouse opening the show. Everyone cheered when he came out-so exciting!






















Dopey...Emma's favorite dwarf!














One of my new favorite characters, Flynn Rider.


I thought it was hilarious because they were selling Rapunzel's frying pans at the souvenir stand. haha


All the Princesses with their princes.








We all really enjoyed the show. The fun thing about it is that there was so much variety-something for everybody. So I would recommend seeing it if you get the chance!

In trip news, our Magical Express packet came in the mail the other day. I can't believe it's already March...we're almost down to ONE MONTH! Plus, the Flower and Garden Festival starts this week so that's another sign we're getting close. YAY!

Stay tuned for the next set of park plans. Have a good night!

Oh, I LOVE Disney on Ice! It's a shame I haven't seen it in so long. Wait... how long has it been? 1... 2... carry the 6... square it... wow, I think before my first Disney trip! I'm long overdue for seeing it again, especially with all these new characters in the show. Naveen and Tiana

YAY! THE ME PACKAGE HAS ARRIVED! Always a great little thing to receive especially when it comes to knowing how far away your trip is. Very exciting!

Can't wait to hear about your next park plans!

WOW, that show looks like it was awesome! I went to a show that came to my city in September, and it had Princess and the Frog, Cinderella, and Tangled. It looks like the beginning (with Mickey and the gang) and the end (with ALL the princesses and princes) were similar though! It's funny how many different shows they must have touring at once!

Yay for Magical Express stuff! That's so exciting!
