Oh, no!!! I just programmed the numbers into my phone AND distributed the number to all of the chaperones going on the class trip next week.

Someone forgot to fact-check!!!

You are going to have to come up with something to distract them in that area. You don't want this one minor fact slip-up to tarnish your reputation as the Disney expert.

Maybe I can get my phone changed to those numbers and set an answering machine message as if it was the booth.

Hullo! This is the Queen. I can't come the phone right now. I'm on the throne.


Look, Janet, it works here, too!

It is so nice when you can find so many uses for one word (and all of them are hilarious )

The teens are never going to appreciate your humour gold mine.

Thanks for the heads up about the phone booth numbers. I had though of giving that a go next time I was passing but hadnt told the kids so all good

Morning at the Magic Kingdom

Wednesday began with an attempt at making rope drop at Magic Kingdom. I love the opening show and was really looking forward to it. Sadly, we were just a couple of minutes too slow and so we just missed a bus and as a result, just missed rope drop. No matter, it was still the start of a wonderful day.

As we waited for the next bus, I took a picture of our room, from the outside.





Magic Kingdom was already open when we arrived, but the line ups were nice and short so we were inside in no time.





Never tire of a great view of the castle.





First thing we did was head over to Tomorrowland, where we walked right on to Buzz Light Year. Here is another trip down memory lane.

2012




2007




Next up was the People Mover, which is always a great opportunity to annoy the kid.





And then on to the Laugh Floor.










Next up we decided to head over to Haunted Mansion (again), and on the way we got to peak at some newly opened parts of Fantasyland. We had to walk past enough construction walls, that the magic wasn’t what it could have been, but we did see the new Dumbo and Goofini rides. Sorry, but it didn’t occur to me to take any pictures.

When we arrived at the mansion, I did take some pictures.









I love how majestic the HM looks like from the queue line. It looks less majestic when viewed from above. We were fascinated to see how big the ride actually is.




We wound up riding HM three times and then it was off to get some lunch. Taking another trip from the DisBoards we chose to eat at Columbia Harbour House, enjoying some of the seating upstairs. This is what it looked at just before Noon – plenty of seats in a nice comfortable setting.




The other side of the room was completely empty with even more seating.




I had a tuna sandwich that was wonderful, and I would happily eat here again on our next trip.

Next up we went on Pirates of the Caribbean, but chose not to wait for the 75 minutes indicated for the Jungle Cruise.

And of course, no matter how old the teen, the guns are still irresistible.




After the guns, I found this place but we chose to not get a Dole Whip as we were saving room for supper. Obviously from this decision you will know that we had not ever had a Dole Whip prior to this moment.




My husband wanted to ride the steam train, but there was only one train running with a lengthy line-up so we gave that a pass and wrap up our MK morning.

Here are a couple of pics of the castle, since it looked so beautiful as we were leaving and heading out to the busses.







Well that’s enough prattling on for one day. Next up, time at the resort and then off to the Biergarten.

I'll always remember the tuna at Columbia Harbor House. It was our first trip to WDW (for hubby and I together) and it was our last day. I was starting to come down with a cold so not much appealed, so I went with the Tuna. I still think it's the best tuna sandwich I've ever had.

I'm so glad people on the Dis talk about the tuna sandwich at CHH. We wouldn't have thought to go to this restaurant on our own, nor would I have had the tuna.

So glad we discovered it and I'm sure we will eat the tuna here again.

We really lucked out with the weather on our trip. We had one miserable day of rain, but the rest of the week was amazing. Always sunny, but never too hot.

Love your MK morning!

And I can see from the picture of you and your son on the People Mover that he secretly LOVED it.

Your pictures are just lovely. Mine were just an afterthought!!!

And in case you didn't know, there is a seating area upstairs at CHH too and if you get a window seat up there, you can look out over Frontierland. I really enjoyed the view.

He did secretly enjoy it. There is another picture a few seconds later (where I look awful, but he is out and out laughing)

I love just taking random pictures, instead of focusing on getting one of us in the picture. That way when we get home, I can see what we saw along the way. It is fun when we use the pics as a random screen saver.

The castle was looking so good at that moment that I had to stop and get some pictures.

Awesome picture of the castle!!

Thanks for mentioning the tuna sandwich at CHH. We get to a point in the holiday where I can't stand to look at another burger and fries. Now I have an alternative AND a quiet place to sit.
