I'm pretty jealous of the view you ladies had from that Best Western. We stayed there in 2011 during our daughters cheer finals at WDW, but our view was to the north, looking out over I-4 and the Taco Bell plaza. Good to see that your daughter and you are having so much fun! great TR so far!

Glad you made it in time to see Nemo!

I've never heard or seen the donuts before!

Art of Animation looks so cool! I'm like you--I definitely want to stay there, and your pictures made my want even worse! lol

So glad that you finally got to try EoS and loved it!!!

For Pumba, it does look like a great resting spot, though!

They were having some summer time activities: "Sundowner Celebration", with a few extra things going on and special foods, so I think it's probably just at that certain time when they have those special "treats".

Loved AoA!!

Thanks for being here for my TR!!

We stayed there last year and loved it!

Saturday, June 16



Today would be our lazy day because all we had scheduled was dinner at Boma.

So we slept late and then decided to go to DTD for a while.

First stop was Earl of Sandwich for lunch! (no pics this time, though)


A few random pics:















Loved this new design (a little blurry, though)




Time for some Ghiradelli yummy-ness!





Love the Art of Disney store!







They also had a collection of "Precious Moments" Disney dolls, which I had a total fit over! I don't even collect dolls (just Disney stuff!) but I had to have one
(but which one??)!












After finishing up our shopping, we headed back to the hotel to get ready for our ADR for Boma at AKL!!!!!







But first, I had to take a quick pic of my new baby!!!

Sounds like a very enjoyable and relaxing day so far!

You pics from Ghirardelli totally have me craving one of their shakes now!

Love the pics from the Art of Disney store--we passed it on our trip and I mentioned wanting to go in, but never made it. And your doll is SOOOO cute! Too precious!! I didn't even realize they had those dolls. I have a couple of the Precious Moments figurines, but had no idea about the dolls!

Thanks for writing! I love that you and your daughter experience these trips together! I have two girls (my teenager is taller than me too ) and you give me inspiration to take those solo trips!

Can't wait for the rest!
