Great phototour! There are a lot of similarities in theming between DHS and Disney California Adventure at Disneyland. Love both of them! And ToT is still my favorite ride at WDW!

DxDP huh? Let the eating begin!
Thank you!

I love doing that too! It's usually so quiet! Oh, I know that tea is amazing!! It's a great alternative to soda.

Ohhhh, yeah! You can say that again!!

Curious to see where you are headed for dinner. I picked the wrong time to catch up on your TR because I can't see pictures from this restricted computer. But hopefully I have bumped up your TR enough that it will be right there waiting for me when I get to my own computer.

Sounds like a fun afternoon in DHS. There really are a lot of great small details in that park that can easily be overlooked.

Great pics Emma!! POFQ looks wonderful. Faith (DD6) has been sitting here with me looking at your pictures and asking a 1000 questions..."what resort is that?...why haven't we stayed there? where is Minnie?...can you read this to me?" She's exhausting!

I totally agree with you!! We love it, too. There's actually more to do there than people think. And we like the restaurants at DHS, also. My favorite night time show is by far, Fantasmic....soooooo good!

I agree, Heather! We actually kind of like some of the restaurants at DHS! I know a lot of people pan them, but no problems here! Faith sounds so cute!!!! I remember those days! Very sweet.

Life Update 3

Hi everyone!!

I am so sorry for my absence! I just wanted to pop in and let you know that I haven't deserted you all. Things have been insanely busy around here! With finals coming up in two weeks, I have had a ton of studying to do and projects and papers and presentations!! Things are just crazy!! Good news is that most of my stuff is done and next week only holds a few papers and tons of studying! I am hoping to get an update in tonight or tomorrow!

On another note, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I know we sure enjoyed ourselves and stuffed ourselves as well! Christmas is coming up faster than I can imagine! I'm so excited, but the snow doesn't have to come with it!

I will try to catch up on your TRs, but it might take a while!

Like I said, expect an update either tonight or tomorrow! Thanks guys!

Have a magical day!

50s Prime Time

50s Prime Time
June 21, 2012


We made it!!





This is just the cutest thing!







We checked in at 50ís around 6:15pm and waited in the living room to be seated.



We love this restaurant! Itís just so cute and fun!









Finally it was time to be seated!



I ordered a peanut butter and chocolate shake to drink with a water. My goodness, this was yummy!! Although, I never got a glass or straw! LOL, I just used a spoon from the metal cup.



Mom had a Coke with cherry syrup. This was super sweet, but very good!!

As an appetizer, we ordered the onion rings. These are just so darn good!



For my entrťe, I ordered Grandmaís Chicken Pot Pie. This was really filling, and the pastry part was delicious!!! It did get a little old after a while, but no complaints!



Mom ordered the fried chicken with mashed potatoes and greens. It was delicious! That fried chicken is always to die for!! LOVE!



For dessert, I ordered the ice cream sundae with hot fudge! I was so full though, so I only ate a few bites of the fudge, uh, I mean ice cream, LOL and pushed it away!!



Mom was hiding behind it! LOL!

Mom ordered the símores which were really good too! We were just so full, so we could barely eat any more!



The meal in itself was amazing! We love 50s! As far as the service goes, we had Cousin Claire. She was very nice, but she was distracted by a table next to us who had like four separate checks. It was a very long and confusing ordeal. All the while, we were DYING of thirst! LOL! I was trying to hint at needing a refill by slurping my water, but it didnít work! She did finally come around after the huge group left!

I just LOVE the atmosphere in this restaurant! Itís just so cute!

Resort Photo Shoot part I

Resort Photo Shoot part I
June 21, 2012


After dinner, we basically ROLLED out of the restaurant and down Hollywood Boulevard.













We waited for a bus to go back to POFQ, but the wait took soooo long! But there was the CUTEST little English boy and girl in front of us in line. They had the best accents!

















When we got back to POFQ, we dipped our feet into the Kiddie Pool. There was a very talkative little girl who was playing in the water. She told us all about her baby sisters birthday party! It was adorable!



We took some pictures around the resort, and it was a lot of fun exploring! The resort is so beautiful!
