No problem!!! I wish i would have taken a few more pictures of the NEW!!! but no you can experience some as a surprise. I could not stop looking at the water, I knew it had always been there but it was like WOAH and BAM check me out. I should have thrown a penny in there and been the first one, what was I thinking?!

Nice pointed toes in the Big Thunder Line at the new yellow tiles Bobby. That is him right?

LOVE the faces on the ride. Priceless.

My entire family loves it and they always get mad that I never want to do it, they think I am a sore loser haha. I really just don't know how to do better!!!

Yes, that is Bobby and he would love you for saying that!!! He loves "being a dancer"

Another great update!

What glorious things Disney smells are!!! The A/C in Andy's old car use to smell like the monorail, I would sit it in sometimes and just start smiling and giggling and one day he asked me why, I told him it was the Disney smells and he had NO IDEA what I was talking about (this was before he had gone to Disney when he was old enough to remember) NOW having been there a few times, he understands completely mind you he still thinks I'm weird but he understands where I'm coming from how

So glad you found us!!!

Thanks a lot we had so much fun making it. I'm so glad that you enjoyed it. Disney just turns us into big kids, as I'm sure it does with a lot of people, especially this time around beucase we couldn't believe we were actually there. It was amazing

I just realized that my hubby and I were there at MK on the same day that you were because we also rode Thunder Mountain after the refurb was done! I just couldn't believe that I was going to be missing out on my favorite ride during my honeymoon, but thankfully, I was at least able to ride it one time. I was so upset that it wasn't open during EMH though. We definitely would have ridden it over and over again!

How crazy!!! I love when i heard about people who were there the same time, such a small world. Honeymoon?! Congratulations!!! What a magical place to spend such a happy time, I hope you had a wonderful trip. We were so excited to get to ride it that day because it wasn't scheduled to open until the following day when we couldn't make it back. We were totally bummed that it wasn't open during EMH too but we were glad we got one quick ride in on it.

More Reasons To Come Back
May 27, 2012

After seeing all the NEW!!! and obtaining fastpasses we decided to head over to Haunted Mansion.

Don’t let this picture deceive you, while I was happy to be in Disney I was not happy to be headed to the Haunted Mansion. This ride has scarred me since I was little and still does today.



I could hear the creepy organ music playing…



When we got in line we had to make the choice of going through the cemetery or getting right in line. There was no line either way and Brittany had never seen it so we decided to take the long way, usually we don’t but we figured YOLO!!!

Bobby told us that there is game that you are suppose to play with these guys and figure out who killed who(?) I have never heard of it but he’s a cast member so maybe he is right. We didn’t know what that meant so we just continued on.

Side Note: I am extremely intrigued by the twins and I have NO IDEA why. They are creepy and I just want to know more about them.



Brittany had a good time exploring all the new things that the queue had to offer



Master Gracey, reminds me of the Haunted Mansion movie with Eddy Murphy (not my favorite) but I do love the costumes and the masquerade characters.



I love the water aspect of the line, I had fun playing in it. Sam told me to get a picture with the Captain, I was afraid that my butt was going to get wet in the process.



We told Brittany how Madame Leota’s eyes open on the tomb stone and she tried getting a picture with them open, she took a few and we laughed because she almost didn’t get it before they ushered us into the stretching room. She finally got it just in time



After we socialized with the grim grinning ghosts we exited, saying goodbye to Mr. Toad in the pet cemetery. I forgot to take a picture of him this time around; I usually do it every time.

For those of you who just breeze out of the ride make sure to stop and take a look to the left, there is a pet cemetery and up in the very top left corner there is the statues that at one point was over the top of Mr. Toad Wild ride, he was put to rest there after his dark ride was turned into the Pooh bear one.

From there we headed back over to use our Splash Mountain fastpasses

I’m so glad that Sam got this shot. Bobby and I started a tradition during our first show together. Every performance before the show started and the curtain was closed we would walk the stage and say what we were most excited for and who we had there to see us perform that night and what they meant to us. We did it for all 3 shows that we worked on together but he was gone for my last show so this made up for it



Splash Mountain time!!! I love the different pictures that they have in the queue and I have never thought to take pictures of them so I did this time around. You can never have enough Disney ambiance photos.



Did you know that “The Big One” as my family so lovingly calls it is actually known as Chic-A-Pin Hill? I knew it had a name, that’s one of my favorite things to do on this ride is read ALL the little signs for the drops in the ride they are so clever and cute the one I always look for is “Slip-N-Falls” but I never realized what “the Big Ones” name really was



We saw this sign and I laughed, Sam and I went to high school with a girl who works at Splash (during our trip she actually went home to spend time with her family) and she is always posting on facebook/tumblr how much she dislikes her role at the DCP mainly because people are coming through the line asking if they are going to get wet and “where the dry spot of the log is”. Ummm hey buddy can you read? It’s no secret that you will get wet



So while we were riding through I checked out my favorite pig on the Ferry Boat (if you remember from my March TR) who wears my dream costume fabric. As we were floating through I realized something I had never seen before on the raft of animals who have a little band.

It was a wild turkey (I wish I would have been quick enough to get a photo but I wasn’t). I turned to Bobby and was like I it just me or is that NEW!!! He told me that that turkey definitely used to be an alligator. Pheeeeew I wasn’t loosing my mind.

So next time someone takes a trip makes sure to have your camera ready and during the show boat scene, just as you leave, snap a picture of the (what seems oddly misplaced) wild turkey and bring it back and post it here for me!!!

We exited the ride and we walked out to see our ride photo. Apparently on the way up the hill and executive decision was made between Sam and Brittany “let’s touch the bunny” so that’s what they did



We decided that we would go check out the new Fantasyland expansion (Dumbo/Great Goofini). How would we get there? Well, we dragged out soggy butts to…

DISNEY TRANSPORTATION MODE 3 of 6: The Train, I personally love this thing. I usually like to get on at Main Street and ride around to Frontierland beucase when I was younger Ma would take me on it and show me Splash Mountain and tell me one day I would be big enough to ride it. Oh how Disney memories stick with you <333.

I don’t have a picture of the station so these two kind of train pictures will have to do…

This one makes me laugh, no one is ever ready for pictures except me I’m always like CAMERA (gotta cheese is up) !!!



DISNEY TRAIN EXCITEMENT!!! We can make anything fun



I love all the sights from the train for example Big Thunder aka NEW!!!



I told Sam to snap this picture for Jess and Kristen. Deer in the woods!!! I think it’s funny when people are amused by the fake deer on the train because we have real deer in out backyard that are constantly just hanging out.



When we passed by this little scene Bobby laughed at mine and Sam’s exchange, it was something along the line of “Sam look there are our people, hurry get a pic!!!”



Next stop, Fantasyland!!!



Bobby pointed out to us that there are peanuts and shells in the ground along with the elephant feet imprints to really add to the Circus theme. REALLY DISNEY?!? Even the smallest details, nothing is ever left out or forgotten.

Sadly I didn’t get many pictures of he new area. What was I thinking?! We actually didn’t even ride anything back here. We said we would make it back later in the day when it wasn’t as hot and when it was all light up at night (sadly that never happened)

Too bad because Andy was really looking forward to trying out this.



Oh well all the more reason to visit again. I must admit that I LOVE these cast members costumes. They are just so cute and perfect, just like little ringleaders.

I didn’t like that everything feels so boarded up over there. I felt like I was squished I a box and there wasn’t a way to navigate it, maybe it’s because we were rushing, maybe it’s because there really isn’t all that much over there yet. I can’t wait for more of it to open and I’m excited because I’ll be there for it and Cast Members get to go to the soft openings for everything, fingers crossed I’ll have the night off!!! I want to be the first to ride Ariel’s ride.

Bye bye Fantasyland Expansion….



Where to next guys?


Tune In Next Time!!!

All caught up!

I stink at Buzz Lightyear too! I don't get it...I shoot that darn gun constantly and always end up with a bad score. The 3-year-olds do better than me!

Love all the MK pics! Especially the ones of you guys on Thunder Mountain! It truly does show the magic of Disney! I need to take more pictures while on the rides.

Can't wait for more fun!

I don’t think I have ever eaten at Pecos Bill (I know something is wrong with me). But that is what more trips are for!

BTMR!
I am in love with your ride pictures on it. I’m going to have to try that out!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I also think the twins are really cool in the HM queue.

I’ll have to try and get a picture of the NEW!!! turkey for you when I go next.

I have seen pictures of the peanuts in the ground on Instagram. Can Disney details get any better?!

Haunted Mansion IS really scary! In all the guidebooks, it says that it's more funny than scary. Um, what ride are these people going on because the one I go on has a creepy bride only a couple of feet away from the doombuggy!

My DH and I were trying to figure out who killed who, and we figured out one or two when we looked closely, but we didn't have the patience to do them all. Haha, so we took pictures and kept walking.

Haha, that's funny that people ask if they will get wet on SPLASH Mountain! Asking if you'll get wet on POTC is a different story because on my last trip, I got hit with so much water! Haha! It was so surprising, and I actually have the scream on video because we were all so startled!

I too didn't enjoy the squishiness of the new part of Fantasyland that's open. The walls were starting to get to me, and I couldn't wait to get out of that part!

Pecos Bill's is a family favorite, it always has been so we would HIGH recommend it. I love saying "ohp we didn't fit that in" or "Oh I want to try there" it gives us more reason to go back as if we need any of those

Ride pictures are SO MUCH FUN, just make sure to hold on tight you your camera!!! Wouldn't want to lose that.

RIGHT?!? They are intriguing. I don't know what it is about them haha

PLEASE DO, I would love that. I just want to be sure that he is really there and I'm not going crazy!!!

They really don't miss a beat when it comes to those Disney details. Perfection.

YES!!! Thank you, finally someone who agrees everyone just usually tells me to grow up, hello I am a kid at heart and the kid inside me is scared out of her mind

Oh my goodness, how cool!!! I don't even know how the game works. If you could explain it a little bit to me I would LOVE it haha. I walk by them and just want to know the inside scoop.

Pirates of the Caribbean got me more wet then Splash did when we were there is March!!! I thought I was losing my mind or it was some fluke thing and then when we were there for this trip the same thing happened. Crazy, they are going to need a sign for that ride pretty soon.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt cramped. It was the strangest thing, I felt like it was impossible to navigate and yet there was like nothing there. Weird, please just take down the walls!!!
