Haha I have to say, we southerners are pretty friendly. Everytime my family from PA comes to visit they are shocked by how nice everyone is down here!

Aww thank you so much! You're so sweet! Yep, I got them off in January! It's SUCH a great feeling!

You are! I love you guys! Everyone is SO nice! It really is pretty drastic!


That sounds like a fun family day! We don't have Disney Stores around here anymore either. My sister used to work at the Disney Store in our mall, and when it closed they sent her two days of free park tickets!

AHHH thank you for the Full House screenshot. My all time favorite show EVER. Last night I watched the episode where Stephanie dances to Motown Philly by Boyz II Men. LOVE IT.

It was! Isn't it so sad!? It depresses me. But then again, I would probably be broke if we did, considering the amount of money I spend in Disney...

Really!? That's awesome!!! I guess that eases the pain a bit!

You're welcome! Mine too. It's seriously the best. I totally grew up watching that every single day. It's the best. Ah yes! I know that dance! I taught it to myself back when I thought she was the coolest girl ever! Ah who am I kidding, I still think that!


You don't have Chick Fil A up north?!?! I couldn't live. I eat chicken minis for breakfast at least twice a week.

Aww I love your CSR pictures! We really enjoyed staying there in December!

STACEY. Nothing says "welcome home" like her incredible facial expressions.
No we don't!!! Hahaha I don't know how I'm surviving!

Thanks! It's beautiful there! I bet the Christmas decorations were just lovely in person!

AMEN to that!

Yay! Updates!

You look so pretty all dressed up for prom! Did your hair stay curled all night?


How can this be the first time you've had Chick-fil-A? You poor thing!


Gotta say, Stacy is one of the most underrated television shows of all time--love her.

Coronado Springs looks so beautiful! How did it stack up to other Mods?

Thank you so much! No it didn't! It lasted a couple hours though! And it didn't fall completely flat!

I know! I feel so deprived!

Amen. She really is. Must-do Disney is my favorite show ever!

It was! I've only stayed there and at French Quarter, although I've been to Riverside. I'd say that French Quarter is still my favorite mod, but that's mainly due to size and nostalgia.

Holy Moley I'm behind!!

Aww I love your prom dress!!! It's so pretty!! You all looked gorgeous!!

I agree with you about the whole southern sweetheart thing!! I swear it's the warm weather! I'm from VT, and let me tell you, even though everyone waves at everyone like they know them, it is NOT the same as the hospitality you receive in the south! It's crazy! I love it though! Plus, they have amazing food!!!! We don't have a Disney store anywhere NEAR us!!! It's awful! When I find them, I get soooo excited!!!

YAYYYY you made it!!!! I love your CSR pics! It looks beautiful! I need to visit that resort next trip!!

You looked so beautiful at your Prom! I love your dress too, it's so elegant! I hate when girls wear really tacky dresses to prom. I mean, to each their own, but I much prefer something like what you wore.

Aww road trips are so fun...especially when you are watching Harry Potter movies.

Panera and Chipotle. YUUUUM. Girl, you know what you are doing when it comes to non-Disney quick service restaurants. LOL.

YAY Full House! Okay, you also know your stuff when it comes to quality road trip entertainment!!

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS FINALLY AT DISNEY!!!!! Coronado is soooo beautiful!

OMG WHAT RADIANT STACEY PICTURES. Dying @ her perfection. BOW.

Can't wait for more! It's so funny to think that soon Jess would be arriving and surprising you! And I am dying to hear about your latest trip too. Between the two of you there is enough TR content to keep me entertained for the next year. And I'm sure you'll be going back to Disney in like 5 minutes and then there will be even more!! haha

Aww thank you so much! I know, I agree. I hate the tacky dresses. Classy and elegant was the goal with that dress, and I'm glad I achieved it!

Definitely! :P

Yeahh!! Those are the best! They're seriously my favorites.

Thanks! Yeah, Harry Potter and Full House are the best for long car rides!

It really is! I LOVE it there!

Hahaha I thought so too! She's a beautiful human being.

I know! And I had NO idea!! It's so funny. We'll probably be starting that TR pretty soon! You will definitely have plenty to read between the two of us! Well...not exactly five minutes...47 days!!

Your prom dress is so pretty! That shade of blue is gorgeous.

I loved reading about your road trip to Disney. I know a lot of people can't stand driving, but there's just something so fun about driving down to Florida. Especially when you spend part of the trip watching Full House.

YAY Coronado Springs!! It's so pretty and relaxing. Finding Hidden Mickeys all over the room was fun.

I can't wait for more!

It really is! I loved it there! There were sooo many HM's!

I see in your signature you visited Disneyland in 2009 and 2010. In your opinion how does it compare to Disney World?

I did! I loved it! Definitely a totally different experience from Disney World, but still incredible and magical in its own way. Disney World will always hold a special place in my heart and will always be my favorite, but there are certain things about Disneyland that I absolutely LOVE.

For one, Disneyland is much smaller, which I thought was actually really nice. I was never bored and I never felt like it needed more, and it was nice to be able to walk everywhere. Also, Disneyland has a much more classic Disney feel to it. I really feel Walt's love and presence when I'm there. It has a much more nostalgic and comfortable atmosphere. Also, Downtown Disney had a very cool layout and I LOVE the dining options there. California Adventure might be my 2nd favorite Disney park because it has so much uniqueness to offer and an array of atmospheres all in one place.

That being said, Disney World is still my all-time favorite because it has more to offer and feels like more of an experience to me. Also, I grew up going there, so MY personal nostalgic feeling lies in Florida. Plus, certain Disney favorites of mine are there, such as Figment, DHS, school bread and World Showcase.

I try not to compare them to each other all that much because I truly do LOVE both resorts. They're both so different from each other that I try not to put them on the same pedestal, so to speak.

It WAS! I was very impressed.

Was I really? What a small world!

Mmm... Chick Fil A! Isn't it delicious?! If you get to stop at one again sometime in the near future, get a milkshake! They are amazing! <3

YAAAAAAAY for getting to Disney World! I love driving under those arches... best feeling ever!

CSR is gorgeous! And so is yall's view! It reminds me of where we just stayed in Cancun earlier this month. Did you like the location of Casitas?

Growing up I Have been to Disneyland at least 25 times as I lived in the Southern California area. I have been to Disney World twice and still regard it as my favorite. I think you hit the nail on the head when you said it's an experience to go to Disney World. The immersion by staying on site in Florida allows one to totally leave the real world behind be bombarded with everything Disney 24/7, nothing quite like it anywhere.

I have never tried School Bread, Red Velvet Cupcake or seen Muppet Vision 3d. Your TR's has given My Family and I many things to look forward too as we head back this upcoming Christmas.

Ahh I am totally loving your TR and I don't think I have told you that yet!!!
I agree with the others that you looked amazingly stunning at prom!
And YAY for no more braces, I still remember the feeling when you get them off... your teeth feel so slimey and big...and odd...but great.
Your drive looks so fun! We drove from California last time we went and it was so great! Crazy but great! You get to see soooo much! and there is such a massive buildup.
Also full house makes every road trip at least 84% better!
Best show everrrrr! I used to watch it daily...although my parents banned me at one stage. I was about 11 and I pierced my ears myself after watching Steph let Kimmy do it.
And Uncle Jesse... I can't even....
Driving through those gates is the BEST feeling!!
Oh Stacey! Why are the faces you pull so amazing? Ahhh I love turning her on when you arrive! She is priceless!
