Update #20: The Frumps Go Solo- Part 1

May 16th, 2012

The next morning, we woke up at around 8:30 A.M. and finished packing. It was Disney Departure Day! ): Well, for everyone but Jess. Jess' Mom was flying down that day for some Mother-Daughter time!

However, she was moving to Port Orleans French Quarter for the second leg of her trip, so everyone had to pack up and get outta there!

Mike had left a shirt he had bought on the bus, so he had to go to the TTC to pick it up at Lost & Found. He left the room and was going to meet us at Downtown Disney a little later on.

I feel like my Dad or my brother would do something like this. Pshh boy problems.

Bell Services came at around 10 A.M. to get our luggage. We checked in for our flight at the Carriage House and then a nice valet Cast Member drove us over to the West Side on a golf cart! We gave him a real nice tip.

We called Mike while we walked over to the Marketplace, and he was running a little late. We were planning on having breakfast at Wolfgang Puck Express, so he told us what he wanted and we planned to meet him there.

Jess and I knew what we wanted right away. We had heard so many great things about the Smoked Bacon Pizza, so we decided to share it!



Ohhh man, it was so good! Our food limit was pretty much to the max, but bacon, ranch, and fresh tomatoes on pizza!? You can't get much better than that.

Dave jumped right to lunch, and had the Rotisserie Turkey sandwich that he loves so much!



I believe that Katie and Mike shared this Breakfast Pocket, which was HUGE. And the potatoes that came with it were SO good! I may have stolen a few...

After we were finished eating, we went over to Goofy's Candy Co. to use up our snack credits!







Yummy, yum, yum.

I got some Mickey rice krispie treats, of course, as well as a Snow White cookie to bring back for Nat.



She loves cookies and Snow White is her favorite princess, so this was perfect for her!

Jess and I also decided to share a Mickey Red Velvet Cake Pop, because we are both OBSESSED with red velvet and it was just too much to eat by ourselves.





We decided on the pink one, and got it wrapped for a little later.

Good choice, I must say.

We also went into the Days of Christmas store, where I bought a Castle blanket. I love that thing and I use it ALL the time. It's perfect.

Next, we went into the pin store and traded Vinyls!







We looked around for a bit and probably traded pins or something.





We also went to Tren-D, where I got a Hidden Mickey's dress, some Mickey pens and pencils for school, and Jess got a blanket and I believe this pillow, which I also ended up buying in July. She also got a Fastpass pillow!



At some point, more Vinyl trading was done!



We went in World of Disney for a while, and then went to check out the Lego store!

Update #20: The Frumps Go Solo- Part 2

May 16th, 2012

We went in the Lego store next, and just had to say hello to Woody!





Buzz was there too!



We had a lunch ADR for T-REX, so we decided to just check in a little early for it!

Cuz you know... MORE FOOD!!!!

We waited about five minutes and were seated underwater!





Did you know that Wooly Mammoths can swim? Neither did I.



James was our server and he was really friendly!

I had a lemonade and a garden salad, and Jess and I shared the T-rexadillas! YUM.





We were so full that we couldn't even finish them! Everyone had definitely reached their limit.

Dave probably had a burger, and someone had chicken wings and the heavenly T-REX WAFFLE FRIES.





After T-REX we walked around for a while, and then, and I'm not even kidding here, we ate.

AGAIN.

LIKE WHY DO WE NEVER STOP EATING!?!?

WE'RE FULL, DANGFLABBIT.

Apparently not.

We went to Ghiradelli and Mike, Dave and Katie got milkshakes and ice cream. Jess and I decided to just share our cake pop!





YUM! That thing was SO GOOD. The cake was so moist and perfect, and the white chocolate around the cake was fantastic. I loved it!

We need to get another one!!

Meanwhile, Katie had a vanilla milkshake:


Mike had a chocolate one:


Dave had the Mint Bliss ice cream sundae:


He has loved this thing for as long as I can remember. It's the perfect sundae.

Look at them three all lined up:


WOW I REALLY WANT ICE CREAM RIGHT NOW.

ME TOO I'M NOT FULL ANYMORE!

Jess and I went to the bathroom to the left of Ghiradelli, and when we were walking back we decided to look at the CM's pins in the teeny tiny little stoller place.

AND IT'S A GOOD THING WE DID.



Jess found the Dancing People pin!!! It was so random and out of nowhere, but I'm so glad she found it!

We started off the trip when Kristen found hers, and we ended the trip with me finding mine! It couldn't have been better!

After that, it was time to say goodbye. ):



We were both really sad that we were being split up. We have separation issues.

LOL but seriously. How are we going to last through my DCP!?!?! ): A frump trip is in order.

Jess was going to meet her mom at POFQ, and the rest of us were going to enjoy some more DTD time before it was time to leave!

We went in Once Upon a Toy, and I traded for the Haunted Mansion clock pin! Then we went in the pin store again and Mike bought me a YaCHt Club pin! He's a nice kid.

He also decided to get into pin trading himself, and he bought a mystery pin that he ended up trading twice, and he ended up with a Woody pin.

We went in the Pooh's Finds store, Art of Disney, and then headed to the bus stop! We waited a whiiiiile for a bus to SSR, got off at the Carriage House, ate a quick meal at Artist's Palette to use up some CS credits, and then caught the Magical Express. ): The rest is all sadness and boring flight-home stuff, so I'll let Jess take over with the rest of her trip! It's been so fun writing this joint TR, and don't forget to check out my July one HERE.

Stay tuned for more Disney fun with Jess, her mom, and some friends who are new to you! See y'all real soon!

Thanks for everything, Kristen! It was a pleasure writing with you! (:

Update #21: My Mom is Back! (Part 1)
May 16th, 2012

I thanked Kristen’s Dad and her family for having me on their trip! I was so sad that the frump portion of the trip was over. Kristen and I had such a wonderful time together going crazy and loving life in Disney… I really hope that we have another chance to take another frump trip soon!

My Mom had flown in this morning so we could now start our mini Mother-Daughter trip! We were staying at Port Orleans French Quarter so I took the boat from Downtown Disney to our new home!

Mom was in Sassagoula’s eating her lunch! We talked for a while and I filled her in on my trip! My cousin made her a twitter account while I was gone so she could follow me on this trip! Since then she’s become addicted to the ol’ twitter. It’s pretty funny. She always knows what’s going on!

We finished up our lunch and we picked up my bags from bell services. Then it was time to go up to our room!

We were in building 5 in room 5329. We had a teal door! It looked just like our room from our Christmas trip but it was facing the opposite way.







I unpacked my stuff and freshened up. We didn’t have any plans for the night but we were both in the mood to go to the Magic Kingdom. So that’s what we did!

We had our first bus run of the trip and arrived at our magical destination. There was no line to for bag check, so the security guard was like “I’ve been waiting all day for you guys to get here! I kept the line open for you!” He was from Germany and he asked me if anyone ever wished me happy birthday in another language before. So he told me “congratulations on celebrating your birthday” in German! It was so cool!

We got in the park and went to meet Mickey since the wait was only 5 minutes long. There was this little boy behind us in line and he was singing the “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” theme song and his Mom was taping it. It MELTED MY HEART. I just love little children so much.

We met Mickey and Minnie and they were SO adorable and nice. Mickey kissed my hand and it was just precious.



On our way out in the dump shop, this 68 year old Cast Member from Puerto Rico was talking with us about how much he loves his job and how Disney has real magic. He always comes to work an hour early because he loves it there so much. He’s just so happy to be there and it’s wonderful to know that there are such dedicated people that work at Disney!

We left and walked down Main Street USA. We had a photopass CM take our picture and she was a girl from Michigan. It was her last day on the College Program and she was so sad she had to leave!



We went to the Haunted Mansion first and I gave Mom a tour with all of the new facts I have learned since our last trip.



We walked over near Fantasyland. I had to take a picture with one of my top three Disney couples!



Then we walked over to the new Dumbo! I had to show Mom the very beginnings of Storybook Circus!



The Cast Member working at Dumbo was so nice. He chatted with us for a while because a line was at a halt since the ride was running. He asked me “so what’s going on in your life?” and I told him about school and how I wanted to do the DCP eventually. (OH WAIT… NOW I AM!!!) He was a communications major in college, he did his DCP, and now he’s working at Disney full time! He loves it there!

We got on the blue and orange Dumbo and it started to rain. But it was a fun little ride and Mom loved seeing all of the new stuff!



Then we went to Columbia Harbor House for dinner! We had two quick service credits left over from when I was with Kristen, so Mom and I used them for dinner!

CHH updated their menu and it’s fantastic! Mom and I both got the salmon and WOW it was so good. Considering it was from a quick service restaurant, it was some good quality salmon! It’s such a healthy and delicious option! It came with some fresh broccoli and deliciously seasoned couscous. AH it was just so wonderful.



For dessert I got some Apple Pie! It’s not the best… but it’s dessert, ya know? It just tastes like your typical packaged pie.



Mom was healthy and she had a yogurt. What will power.



We sat in the upstairs room and no one was there! Thank you disboards for that wonderful tip! It was such a nice little sanctuary.



We sat by a window and we could see Fantasyland from up there!

Update #21: My Mom is Back! (Part 2)
May 16th, 2012

Then we went on Its a Small World! Kristen called me from the airport and we were so sad she had to leave. WAHH COME BACK TO ME, FRUMP!



I tried to refrain myself from taking too many pictures of this ride. It's a Jess problem. Once I start I usually can't stop! But on this day I only ended up with three. I'm impressed with myself.





We took a bunch of Fantasyland pictures next! There are just beautiful flowers EVERYWHERE in Disney!











CASTLE PICTURES!





My last view of this  EVER. Wow, thats heartbreaking to type.



Time to go to Tomorrowland! Please say this in the appropriate tone of voice:



Thank you.

Our next stop was Buzz Lightyears SPACE RANGER SPIN!





HIDDEN MICKEY!



I love our ride picture  its too cute!



Then we went on the PeopleMover and I was wearing my matching shirt!





Next we used our Peter Pans Flight fastpasses. That is one of my absolute favorite attractions. It just makes me feel like a little kid again!



While walking back to Main Street, I took this picture of the castle. I LOVE it because you can faintly see the stars. Its so magical.



Then we walked up the back pathways and got to Main Street USA.





The Main Street Electrical Parade was going on so we fought our way through the crowds.



We went to the Ice Cream Parlor and got a Hot Fudge Sundae! I asked for extra cherries but two out of three of them fell off when I was walking through the crowd to the bakery. Sigh.



Mom and I split the sundae and we ate it right up! It was SO GOOD. Mmmm ice cream is my favorite.

Then we walked through the shops. I bought a Walts Vision picture from the Main Street Gallery. I had just painted my room back at home and I wanted some new artwork to hang up. It was perfect!

After my newest purchase, it was raining and pretty chilly outside. We went back to the room before Wishes because we were both cold and tired. I fell right to sleep when I got back to my beloved Port Orleans!

Ahhh so many great updates!! I love Downtown Disney, so much fun and it combines my 3 favorite things: eating, shopping and disney!

I'm adding that sparkly cake pop to my list of things I must try on our next trip! There are no calories in Disney, right?

All your pin pictures get me excited to do more trading too- just got into it on my last trip, and can't wait to go back now that I kind of know what I'm doing!

Also, Jess can't believe your ticker is at 10 days til your CP! So exciting!

Yum! I love WPE! DH always gets flatbreads, but I have to get my sushi.

We are eating at T-Rex in May. I cannot wait to take my Little Guy in there! He is obsessed with dinosaurs!

Yes! The dancing people pin! Good find.

Okay, I got a little Geary eyed reading the part about Snow White's ride. I remember saying goodbye to it too.

I definitely said "Now approaching MICKEY'S STARTRADERS" in that People Mover voice when I saw that picture.

Um, I would very much like to borrow Mike's appetite and hit every single Disney buffet!!! That would be an awesome experience! Haha. I'm surprised that Disney hasn't opened bakeries in big cities around the US to sell the same desserts they have in WDW. I'd definitely hit NYC to try an Oreo Bon Bon!

Love the Vinylmation and pin trades! I found the "No Dancing" pin during my last trip too!

Aww, so sad that you two had to say goodbye! Hope there can be more frump vacations in the future!

I love the comment you made about seeing the stars! My DH recently pointed it out that he's amazed when he sees people's pictures that have stars in it, and so this past trip, he was really into them when we were in the parks!

Thank you! I completely agree! DTD has grown on me so much lately.

Yummy! And absolutely not! I say that all the time. Except when I live there I may have to change my rule. (sometimes)

Aww thanks! Pin trading is way too fun!

NOW I'M IN THE SINGLE DIGITS AHHHH

He is gonna LOVE IT. Seriously, T-Rex is such a fun place and if you love dinosaurs, well, you're gonna be in heaven!

Thank you!

Aww I know, it was a sad farewell.

Hahaha GOOD!

Haha seriously though! And that's probably how they get you to come all the way back to the parks.

Thank you! Ahh very lucky!

I know, it was so sad. But yes... with my DCP coming up we had to plan one!

Haha that's very cool!

I'm loving all of your pictures! I was really unsatisfied with the quality of pictures I took on our most recent trip. Do you mine my asking what type of camera you have? I think it might be time for me to upgrade! P.S. My husband thinks it's nuts to upgrade our camera solely for better Disney pics...haha!
