How lucky you are to get a private flight and that view really is amazing. I am so sorry to hear they took the balloon out of service because of an "incident". It's been on my bucket list for awhile and now I'm sorry I didn't do it in June.

Woo hoo for major shopping. Nothing wrong with that!

I have only done DTD at night, but after seeing these pictures I may have to consider a morning. I don't know if I would ever do the balloon so you get my respect there. Looks like you had a wonderful time so far, but still waiting for the reason for the title.

Hi Queen! Sorry I'm a little late joining. Your trip looks great so far.

Via Napoli is on our list for our Thanksgiving trip in November.

I've wanted to ride the hot air balloon. Never got the chance and now they have removed it. Didn't hear if they brought it back or not yet.

I will try my best to keep up better. Our summer was crazy.

Jaime

It was, wasn't it!



I know I am!

Me too LOL

Us too!



Slight correction, there. Shanleigh said she had a soft spot for Ruby and pkondz was funny looking.



Not true at all!

Oh. Boy. I'm a little verklempt here. Such kind words, Queen. We too really enjoyed having you over and getting to know you guys better. I'd only met you that one time and didn't get a chance to talk to you much... so while I was pretty sure we'd get along... you just never know.

Ruby didn't know you at all, other then the fact that I'd seen you at the DISmeet.

By the time you guys left, she'd fallen in love with all of you. She thought you guys were terrific and that Jeff was hysterical.

Man, it was like we'd known each other for years, wasn't it?
It was such a great time and yes, we knew she thought Jeff was quite the card! The whole way home he kept telling Shanleigh that he was pretty sure you guys liked him best Now you see what I have to put up with everyday
However!

I do think that Jeff and I need to be put in a closed room... I'll go easy on him... with a dozen flies (wasn't that nice of me?) He can use the electric swatter he invented and I'll go in empty handed.

May the best man win.

I would pay money to see this

Nice. Gotta love Disney.



Great restraint.







!!



Did the lady come to during any of this?

Just before the paramedics arrived she was coming around!

Wow! That's quite the experience you guys had!



Which effectively makes it.... zero calories!



Oh, of course we do. No, really.



Did she at least have the decency to look ashamed?



Cool! And it looks like it was a good thing you didn't wait longer.



I thought two things there.
1. Cool! Private flight; and
2. Who's Jose? Did I miss something? Are you with a friend?

I got it later.

Having it all to ourselves was pretty neat...I am happy to not know what the 'incident' was that happened that they no longer go up too!

That's really funny!



I notice the wave with one hand while the other has a dragon grip on the rail.



Pool time! Thanks for the update!
I was shocked she even let go with one hand! Enjoy the pool!

-Oh the "So sad it's too big" look! I see that ALL the time!
-That looked like so much fun! It's crazy how far you can see!
Those chandeliers sure are something! I was amazed that on the one side we could actually see the tower at MCO....it was pretty cool!

I'm definitely sticking around on this one!
Yay....love that you decided to come out and say hello! Thank you so much....we are very lucky to have the relationship that we do! Glad you'll be here for the rest of this TR!

Jealous!!!

You look so happy!


Oh I was...pure

I think Nilla called dibs on taking pictures of half eaten food. It looks delicious though!


Oh it was! I still can't figure out what happened to my brain on this trip...usually I'm pretty good at remembering the important things at least!

Very pretty!


Thanks

I got one of those after talking to the cast members there too!


She has wore that piece more than any others...I told her it's another reason to book another trip!

I have no words. Why didn't they get a cab? LOL




Oh man! I'm so jealous! Where are the photos?


Once again, brain not working, didn't even think to bring it with us

Yes.



Aww. Sounds like fun times in Winnipeg.


Absolutely, great day!

So cool.



Scary! It's a good thing there was someone there with a level head to get things done.


That young lady was very lucky that he just happened to be right there! I guess it goes back to that old saying "right place right time"

I'm curious. What do you love about it? We've only just walked around a bit there because of the DVC office.


I love the brightness of the rooms! I loved that we were steps away from the pool to one side and the bus on the other! I loved that we could take the boat to DTD! It was just so bright and cheery....going from SSR to AKL was a bit of a shock because AKL rooms are quite dark and I like bright bright bright!!! The more light the better!





Very cool. Not sure how I'd do on that since I'm scared of heights but usually only if I'm somewhere open, like a mountain or a high balcony.


My sister is afraid of heights and I don't think there is anyway I would have gotten her up there!

Great views!

Great updates and photos, Queen!

Thank you

A quiet DTD sounds dangerous for the wallet -my girls are going to have to learn the art of window shopping if we are going to enjoy ourselves there

Amazing pics from the balloon, so cool that you had a private flight!

I wish I could start my day off that was everyday

It is true, we both ended up spending more than we would have had we gone in the evening!

Thanks, I am thrilled we got to do it before they took it away!

Shanleigh has the cutest outfits ever!!!
H2O is the best i agree,I just wish WDW still carried the milk body lotion(so awesome)

Shanleigh loved the Lotso too....she was running around taking pictures of everythign in there!

GGS are simply the best drink on property IMO...oh to be there now

Didn't know my boyfriend was a two-timer....

It's never too early for a creme brulee or a GGS...

She does enjoy spending her extra money on clothes...she said thank you!! I think she may go into withdrawal once she starts school again and the big pay cheques aren't rolling in

I just love the body butter, it's my favourite of the entire line! I couldn't find it anywhere down there

I know I would feel the same way if we hadn't jumped at the chance on this trip!

Nothing at all...retail therapy does a body good!

We look so forward to our morning of shopping now on every trip! It's one of the first days that we plan!

The reason for the title is still a couple of posts away but stay tuned!

Hi Jaime!

I think you'll love it, can't wait to hear tho!

My sister and her family just returned from the World and the balloon is still gone

I hear ya, we've been a little busier than I would like this summer too! Glad you found us and that you'll be following along!

Hey Queen (cause you'll always be "Queen" to me) and Shanleigh!

I've been away from the boards forever, but fortunately for me, this was the 1st TR I picked up. So happy to hear all about your latest trip! Thanks to the links, I caught up relatively quick.

Merida looks stunning! That was the 1st photo I have seen of her. And I love that D&B bag as well, but like you, for $210 I wld have tried to keep walking.

Great that you met some new Disfriends this trip, and sounds like you are hitting some of my favourite restaurants on this trip.

The balloon ride sounded (and looked) spectacular. That's still something I haven't crossed off the list.

Looking forward to hearing the rest!

I'm back and getting caught up. I missed everyone. *sob*

Gah, missing opening ceremony by minutes is so frustrating! And that is totally the story of my life!

Shan's face is hilarious! That is totally the "really?!" face.

Good way to cool off, riding Splash. You're right, May is great. It's hot, but not completely humid like the rest of the summer.

The Peoplemover is the best ride EVER!

Merida is so adorable! I love that they have her "brothers" there. They were seriously one of the best parts in the movie.

The chocolate wave........*drooooolllllllll*.....whoops, sorry.

Yay, DISmeet. They're the best!!! I live vicariously through everyone else, since I've only had one. Hahaha.

Mmmm, I am so looking forward to my Via Napoli reservation in November.

Oooh, pressed pot coffee. So so so yummy.

I love H2O also! we buy it at Ulta all the time (that's the easiest place for me to get it here).

Wow, that's crazy what happened at TrenD! But you're right, that's exactly the kind of person you would want in a situation like that.

Poor thing, a medium being too big.

I'm not kdding, every time I've gone Downtown with the intent of riding Character's in Flight, it's too windy and it's closed. I hate that!

This update will be short and sweet and end off another day in the World! I promise the next one will include more...I was a little forgetful about the camera again

After a wonderful morning and early afternoon at DTD we decided to head back for our daily rest by the pool...again, no pics! I promise I did take pictures by the pool....one day

Our original plan had been to spend the entire afternoon by the pool and then a relaxing evening in our room....but someone decided to get a design painted on their new pair of Toms and they weren't ready before we left so off we went....back to DTD!

We stopped at Goofy's first but decided there really wasn't anything there either of us wanted so we moved along!

To where you ask? Why our favourite spot for counter service in all the World....WPE!!!! I decided to try the famous chinois salad and it is now my new favourite there! It was so delicious...not short on calories I'm sure, but delicious none the same!

Last year when we went to WPC my sister had ordered the four cheese pesto pizza and raved about it for months after so Shanleigh decided she had to try it and now no other pizza compares She loved it and ate most of it which again, unheard of!!!

My girl waiting for our dinner!
After dinner we headed over to pick up her Tom's and of course at this point I remember, take out the camera!

Outside Planet Hollywood!

We wandered all the way down and someone (not me in case you were wondering) spotted the Haagen-Dazs shop...so we stopped! Now, for those of you who followed us when Jeff was along remembers his fear of birds...well, actually all things that fly...and sting Anyhoodle, the birds around this place were awful and you could see why...the people all around us were feeding them and they were bold!! Jasmine was not at all relaxed and in fact, neither of us finished our treat it was that bad!! Why don't people follow the rules!

We decided it was such a beautiful evening that we would walk back to the Marketplace and catch our bus there! Another wonderful end to another wonderful day!

She was gorgeous! My cousin's wife bought "my" purse....at least someone gets to enjoy it

It was really nice meeting up with them and we certainly had our fill of good food and drink this trip!

I am so happy that we did it this trip...I know I would have felt a little cheated if we never did it!

So happy that you're back!

I know, gotta love it

Good way to cool off, riding Splash. You're right, May is great. It's hot, but not completely humid like the rest of the summer.

I loved May and would go back in a heartbeat at the same time if everyone could go at that time, but my nieces are still in school so I doubt we'll ever do that time of year with them
The Peoplemover is the best ride EVER!


Merida is so adorable! I love that they have her "brothers" there. They were seriously one of the best parts in the movie.

I was so happy we stumbled upon her! I love how they pose for the pictures too, they were adorable!
The chocolate wave........*drooooolllllllll*.....whoops, sorry.

You sound just like Shanleigh...I really must get it again next trip, it's been awhile since I've ordered it!
Yay, DISmeet. They're the best!!! I live vicariously through everyone else, since I've only had one. Hahaha.

I agree and it was a good one!
Mmmm, I am so looking forward to my Via Napoli reservation in November.
Yeah...never mind the food, the eye candy is pretty nice as well
Oooh, pressed pot coffee. So so so yummy.

One of the hidden treasures in the world!

I love H2O also! we buy it at Ulta all the time (that's the easiest place for me to get it here).

We took a weekend trip to the states on our long weekend in May and I bought this spray oil at Ulta (we don't have Ulta here) and I love it! It's on my "what I buy everytime I go to the states list" now!

Wow, that's crazy what happened at TrenD! But you're right, that's exactly the kind of person you would want in a situation like that.

I know...so calm, cool and collected!
Poor thing, a medium being too big.

Pity, I know, I feel so bad for her
I'm not kdding, every time I've gone Downtown with the intent of riding Character's in Flight, it's too windy and it's closed. I hate that!

It was like it was meant to be for us this trip and now I'm so glad I sucked it up (the price I thought was a little steep) and did it!!!
