Oh, what a bummer about the turnstile fiasco! I'm glad that you were able to move on from that sour episode. After all, you are in Disney!!!

Oh how frustrating!!!!!! I would have been tempted to drown my sorrow with a coffee and a cinnamon roll but would have been stressed about missing out on whatever FP was in my sights and early rides with no lines.

Ugh!

Oh my goodness, that WAS frustrating! Hahaha! Now looking back on it, it's kind of funny, but boy, not at the time! I was like, "Really, REALLY?" Hahahah! Of course, we didn't let it get us down for too long!

Oh, and the wedding receiption was in Aurora, OH - it was called Thorncreek Winery and they had some really delicious wine!

Oh man!! That really stinks. Sorry that happened!! It's good that you got the problem fixed at the very beginning of the trip then! And at least you got your empty entrance pictures!

Walkin' Right Down the Middle of Main Street USA

Walkin' Right Down the Middle of Main Street USA
June 21, 2012


We made it through the turnstiles, and Mom went to get a locker, and I got a spot for the opening show. It was super cute! I don’t remember the last time I saw it!































Hey Look! Remember them?! It’s the Scottish family from the bus this morning!!! They were the family of the day!!!! It was precious!











Then the gates opened up, and the mad chaos began!! Dun Dun Dunnnnnnn!!!!



It was pretty crowded already this morning!



A beautiful sight! Even with the ugly construction!! LOL!



I promise there are plenty more castle pictures just in case you were worried that you might never see one anywhere else! LOL! I can’t help it!! It’s just so easy to photograph!!!

We were on our way to Dumbo, and we saw Alice from the train walking with a boy and his mom! It was adorable!!



See?? Perfection! <3

Yay Fanatsyland construction photos!!!!





They get better…

But for now, we were on our way to Dumbo!









It’s sooooo pretty!!!!!



And I love the queue now!!!







I like lights…







Mom was in my favorite number Dumbo!! (It’s been my basketball number for years! I’ve become attached to it!)





Even though, my hat was orange, and that’s my favorite color!!





Here we goooooo!!!!!





The Great Goofini!





Ok, can I just say how proud I am of my zoom right now! Like I would give it like a million gold stars for these next few pictures!!!

The opening show just warms my heart. It's too cute!

The new Dumbo is so pretty!!! I love the new queue as well, it's great! 21 is one of my favorite numbers too! Only for me, it's because I was born on the 21st. It's always way too fun to get your favorite color Dumbo (or teacup) isn't it?

Pretty pictures of the Magic Kingdom... Wow you guys are really good sports ... I really don't think they should have made you get back in line after the fiasco with the magnetic strips...

But ultimately getting too worked up would have just ruined your day so I'm glad everything finally worked out...

Gorgeous pictures of Dumbo ...

It is my dream to be picked for Family of the Day and be up there on the platform for the ropedrop ceremony. Now if I can only convince DW that it's worth showing up at the gates 90 minutes before opening time

Got a little behind on your TR, but I think I'm caught up now.

Very cool wedding reception. I love those type of updates.

I am a big fan of POFQ. I love it there.

How frustrating to be the first people at MK, but have to get out of line to get your cards fixed. Ugh. Glad you were able to take it in stride.

You got some lovely early morning pictures! So cool to see everything so empty. When I stayed at BLT I went running by the MK in the morning and it was SO cool to wake up with the park.

I also love your pictures of the new castle and I can't wait to ride Dumbo in just a few short weeks!

I loved it!!! I hadn't seen it for as long as I can remember, and it was definitely worth it!

Dumbo is amazing!!! The queue is genious!! Really? That's so funny!! I love how we get attached to numbers for certain reasons!

Thank you! It was our first day, so we definitely didn't want to let it get us down!

I would love to be the family of the day!!!! I hope they're still doing it when I have a family! Honestly, we didn't mean to get there that early, but we had nothing to do since we had gotten to POFQ so early!

POFQ is my favorite mod by far!

It was so frustrating!! I'm glad we were able to too!

Thank you! I love early morning pictures. Everything is so peaceful! That sounds so cool! It's so tranquil and beautiful.

Dumbo is amazing!!

Sounds like y'all had a nice weekend for your cousin's wedding. She made a very pretty bride!

Woo Hoo! for getting checked in @ POFQ & over to MK! But Boo! on the madness trying to get through the turnstile! How aggravating!

Sounds like y'all were off to a good start that day in MK!
