Continued....


It was getting close to Wishes time so we headed back towards Main Street. A few minutes after we got there they started the memories show that they do now on the castle.





And pretty soon it was time and Wishes began! There's really not much better than watching Wishes after a wonderful afternoon at MK! This was probably the best day of vacation, even though I was sick.





















Then it was out to the bus stop and back to the BC and to bed!







Up Next: Rope Drop at Epcot!

Sounds like a fabulous day (except for being sick though lol)

It's still not fair that it's my turn to go to WDW in 11 weeks and then you go and book to go back again not long after I get home!?!

It looks like it was a great day! But too bad you were sick!

I feel like we haven't seen the regular Wishes in a while! We missed Wishes in February, and then we saw Holiday Wishes in November. I can't wait to see it soon!

You and dh look so cute on the Aladdin ride Shelly! And I completely agree with you about Wishes. There is something that is just magical about ending your night with it. Makes for a wonderful day!

The day sure ended a lot better than I thought it would when I woke up that morning!!

I need to start counting down in weeks, it always makes it seem so much closer than it actually is!

Can you believe that we are not all packed yet? All of our clothes are pretty much laid out- but they are not in the suitcases yet! And DD18 (her 19th birthday is tomorrow!) and DD21 are packing themselves, but I think they are done! I am so excited- I literally couldn't sleep last night- the next two nights should be interesting!

You have me so excited for the Poly!

Dole Whips and Wishes all in one day- it doesn't get any better than that!


Love that the boys met the princesses! In a few more years they might be a bit more eager to get in line for them.


Thanks for the review of Tony's! That's on our list of places to try next trip. We love pasta so I'm hoping it's good. My DS will have what your DS had- noodles with butter. I'm so thankful Disney is so accommodating for those of us with picky eaters!

Yeah, a lot of the GF construction is set ot end in 'December'. No date though. And then they are starting work on the pool deck at the Poly - in either Dec or Jan.....Plus they are starting room rehabs in the Poly longhouses in October.




They have to try each and every time we walk by that dang thing!! Maybe someday!!

IDK when those walls are coming down. I think a lot of it should be done by then, but not all. There is one attraction (I forget which one) that they are now saying 2014 for completion.

So is there something you would like to tell me about the first week of May 2013???
We're considering the first week of May! I've already got it all planned but I'm still working on DH. If not May then our next trip will be in October. October just seems so far away!

Adventureland is one of my favorite places at night--- and when you top it with a Dole Whip, what could be any better???
We love to walk to the top of the treehouse at night-- it's the only time we do it. It is so beautiful! And the view of the castle-- I'm not sure but if they'd let you stand there, you'd have a perfect shot at watching Wishes from up there!

You got some good rides in at the last minute! How wonderful!


Corn dog nuggets... He's a growing boy!!


What a perfect day!!!!

Dole Whips & Wishes

I think if one of the princesses had been Jasmine they would have been a bit more interested!!

I hope you get to try Tony's! In MAY!!

Adventureland at night is awesome!! I don't think we had ever done that before. It was really fun! You are right -- that would be great to watch Wishes from the treehouse. I wonder if they let you do that??


I know, corndog nuggets for dessert?

That new show is really a feat for the eyes! I just love all the multicoloured and patterened looks on the castle!

I didn't even realize there was Root beer dole whip float!!!! Not sure how I missed that - I even have a picture of the sign in my trip report for the day we got our Dole Whips! LOL Now I'm going to have to go back and read it again - even more surprising is that DH didn't get one!! If he saw it onthe sign I thought for sure he would have gotten it. LOL

I've been reading along, but have not had a lot of time to post.

Your MK day looks so wonderful! Just thinking about it makes me feel relaxed and happy! I'm glad your illness didn't affect you too much.

Dole Whips will cure anything! YUMMY!
