OMG! I just snorted when I saw your crane pic! My DH would totally point that out as well...

We've never been to the island either. One of these days...

The only good thing about waiting so long for POTC is that it's nice and cool inside there once you get past the doors! And of course Captain Jack!

Claire really enjoyed the interactive play while waiting.













Claire really concentrated hard at making her bee follow along.





When we got to the end she wondered what to do. (She wasn’t getting good examples from the people in front of us). I told her to hand it off to whoever was waiting on the other side, and she did it so nicely.







This wall made me cringe. She loved it…but I just kept thinking about how many other people have touched it…she was doused with hand sanitizer afterwards.





Another look over to Fantasyland.





While waiting in line, we had some people ask where Claire got her dress. I would love to tell them about my dear Dis friend Janet…but Claire thinks that Mrs. Claus made it….so that is the answer I had to give when she was around.



Time to ride!











And a few shots in the gift shop….soooo cute!

Wow. I got pretty far behind.

I have yet to experience the interactive queue of Pooh. I am so going there in October, no matter what.

I love your picture of the newest ride in Fantasyland. That's hysterical. Did they really need to pick it 100 feet off the ground to move it? Too funny.

Your pics from TSI are excellent. You got some really cool shots. I love going over there to take pics. Too bad BTMMR was under refurb, although you got some cool pics of the guys working on the track.

I know I told you this before - but I love Clarie's dress. She has the cutest clothes.

Hey, I could do a lot worse than be compared with Mrs. Claus! I'm honored.

And I'm just thrilled to bits that the dress got to enjoy the day in the MK with you guys!

I loled at this. Nice to see someone thinks the same. I did the touching the wall but I couldn't help think how unhygenic it was because of how many other people touch it so after the ride was straight to the bathroom to wash my hands!

I felt the same way about the wall when the girls were playing with it!

Out came the antibacterial wipes after that as well! I have a big gross out factor to handrails, door handles, and drinking fountains.


Janet's dresses should have cards to hand out!

Love the Pooh interactive area!
When we went, we had fastpasses for it and by-passed that area, so we didn't get to play! Looked fun, though!

Thats so true...why did they have to lift it that high to move it.
It was a nice picture taking opportunity over on the island...and I did get to see those construction guys.
I really love this dress too. It will be making a trip down with us in Nov as well.

Maybe we should call you Janet Claus! We so many compliments about it all day long.

I have a little sanitizer bottle attached to my camera bag. Some areas are so gross. And we sure don't need to get sick at Disney...we've had that happen a couple of times...and it's not fun.

We should take wipes and just run them along the handrails as wel wait in line.

I thought of that too. If I had cards...I could sjut say this is where you can get the dress..

I think this was really the first time we had time to play in it. I think last year we rode pooh late at night, so we just walked by everything and got right on.

She was having a great time. Sometimes she doesn't realize how lucky she is. Not many kids in our area have been to Disney as many times as she has...plus a few other things/ places. I do hope we are creating good memories for her.

I appreciate all of your great pictures from Tom Sawyer's Island. Not my favorite attraction either. When we go in July it is super hot! But my youngest son really loves it there, especially using the rifles in the fort to shoot the BTM train as it goes by.

I'm glad that you were able to experience Haunted Mansion and Pooh without too much hassle.

Regarding the Honey Wall. It is bad enough that they are encouraging people to put their nasty hands all over the thing, but I couldn't believe this:





"What fun to make art you can eat" ??? Are they encouraging people to lick this thing?

EWWWWWW!!!!


Love your shot of the crane and the new "installation". A little dose of reality in Fantasyland.

Reflection....or is it a ghost?

I have to say...even the honey wall felt sticky and gross.
I did warn Claire not to try and lick it. We had a licking incident with a bus pole a few years ago...and she ended up sick the next day.
