I love that you guys ended up drawing Flynn Rider at the Animation Academy. They all turned out great!

Mmm, those meatball subs from Pizza Planet are really good. Sounds like a great day at DHS!

Great updates!

So cool that you drew Flynn Rider!

I didn't know that they had meatball subs at Pizza Planet. Yum! I guess it's been awhile since we've been there. We'll have to go back! They look really good.

The meatball subs there are delicious, although I'm not sure if they're better than the meatball subs at Pinocchio's Village Haus

Actor and VIPs!

July 7th, 2012

After a yummy lunch at Pizza Planet, we were walking by The Backlot Tour and decided to go in line (which, there was no line, they had just let everyone in for the pre-show so we started the next line)


After a couple minutes some more people started filling in the space, and the CMs asked for two volunteers to be in the show, who were at least 16 years old. So, my Dad volunteered! So my dad and the other lady who volunteered went through this door to the right and went to get ready for the next show. The rest of us, and the woman's family got to stand in the "VIP section" until the next show. The other family had three little kids, who were all over the place. The CM s kept telling them to stay behind the white line but they didn't listen. They kept going past it and looking around the corner to see what was happening in the show. You could tell the CM was getting annoyed that they wouldn't listen, and the father didn't really do anything to control them.

Finally, they took us and the other family in first and told us to stand under the third tv from the far end on the first row, since you could see the best there (and couldn't get wet)

As the other people filled in, the CM's kept coming over the loudspeaker telling people to move down, and the people next to us kept looking at us like we should move down... obviously they didn't know we were VIPs

Soon the show started! I took pictures on my parent's camera, Joey video taped it, and my mom tried to take pictures on my iPod (which didn't turn out the best)

Here they come!



My dad was up first!





*The video of his performance is in my trip video in the first post, defiantly watch it if you haven't already!*

Preparing for the water!


Here it comes!




"Act dry"


It was the best performance of that show we've ever seen, and trust me, we've seen it a lot lol



We let everyone go past us, since we had to wait for my Dad. He joined us and everyone but me *typical* needed to stop and use the restroom before we went through the building filled with props.


We were the second to last family in line- funny how we went from being first to being last! But we had a leisurely stroll through the prop house since the line was moving very fast now. Plus we didn't mind, we had tons of questions to ask my dad about what they told him to do. And to our surprise, he really wasn't wet at all!

Finally we got on board, allll the way in the back

continued in next post

I'll let the pictures do the talking
















The back lot tour is really cool, it's interesting to see all the props from popular movies.

By now we were worn out, we had done a lot this morning! Now it was time to head back to the hotel and rest up for tonight

One of my favorite sights in the world, a bus stop with no line <3



The boys and I sat down on the ground, luckily in the shade, and relaxed until the bus came. This day was one of the hottest of them all!

Up Next: 3 Kids 1 Park

We haven't gone on the Backlot Tour in years. In fact the last time was during the "Year of a Million Dreams." We won pin lanyards and pins in that line during that visit!

3 Kids, 1 Park

I start school tomorrow, so I decided to get one more good and long update in because once school starts I probably will have to update just on the weekends

July 7th, 2012

We got back to the room and took a short break


Before long the boys and I wanted to go to Magic Kingdom, so we hopped on the monorail while my parents stayed back at the room, sitting on the patio and relaxing. They'd join us in a couple hours

This was the first time us three have been alone in a park, and it was either going to go fabulously or horribly...





Our first stop once we entered...


to get fast passes for Space Mountain!


Since we were right there, we walked over to TTA


At the very end of the ride, one of the girls in the cart in front of us about passed out. They stopped the ride and told us to get out and the girl had her head down and people were spraying her and fanning her with the little Disney fans.

What did we want to ride next?


Of course we love to scream as loud as we can when going down the small hill on POTC










Johnny and Joey were thirsty or hungry or something, so they wanted some frozen lemonade drinks


We were making our way towards Haunted Mansion and a man with a REALLY strong spanish accent asked Johnny where he had gotten his drink. At first we didn't really know what he said until he pointed at the drink, so I told him it was right down the street.

When we got to Haunted Mansion the boys had hardly made a dent in their drinks. The line was long so I suggested we wait in line and by the time we get to the front they'll be done with their drinks. But the two of them thought it was the worst possible idea anyone could ever think of... I really wanted to ride Haunted Mansion but they just refused to wait in the line (it was 20 minutes long! that's plenty of time to finish a drink) with their drinks. So we stood in the shade across from Haunted Mansion until they finished their drinks, and when they were semi done, Johnny refused to ride Haunted Mansion because now the line was 30 minutes long. Well that's why we should have gotten in line before!

Instead of getting in line, we went towards Fantasyland to see Mickey and hear some music




By now it was time for our Space Mountain fast passes!
So we left Fantasyland and made our way back to Tomorrowland!



Now it was Joey's turn to sit in the front seat, so I sat in the second seat like I had last time, and Johnny sat in the third seat. I'm so glad Johnny cooperated..

When we got off SM our parents were waiting in the gift shop, because it was time for dinner!
After contemplating our dinner options, it was decided that we would eat at Pecos Bills, since we never really eat there

continued in next post!
