Hi friends!

All caught up and I enjoyed seeing a ton of fun new pics!

Good to see the girls could make it for the Trunk n' Treat again this year.
Such a cool idea!
Sophie was so adorable as the pea in the pod!

Mmmm....the Plaza club sandwich looked yummy!
I have only been there once and I was still feeling a little under the weather that day.
Was the place I met sunnystace so I will always look back fondly on it.
I have to go for a do-over meal and I'm sure the food won't disappoint.

Guess the rumor was right and the Main Street Bakery will become a Starbucks.
I'm not a coffee/tea drinker so the place doesn't excite me.
I will miss the sweet smells that come from the bakery as I walk down Main Street. What will Jill and the girls do without their Cinnamon buns?
I hope they do a good job of camouflaging the new signage so it doesn't stand out.
I bet there will be some very happy coffee lovers that will be rejoicing. Apparently, Disney coffee didn't have the greatest reputation.

"muppet the frog" made me laugh out loud! Too cute!

Lexi wants the Fantasmic set...minus Ursela. ( she is not a fan of hers at all)
As a small child she would scream at the sight of her...oh yeah and E.T. too.

I bought Lexi the blu-ray special edition of E.T. with the plush doll for Halloween and she has made every excuse to not watch it up til now.
It's still in the shrink wrap....box faced backwards on the shelf.
I don't get it. I always though he was adorable.

Did you notice the Disney Store website is having 25% off this weekend!
Placed a nice large order on there tonight! Picked up some great deals!
You may want to check it out.

Gotta get some sleep...going to the States tomorrow after work for a little shopping getaway.

Can't wait to see if Walgreen's, Kmart or Target has any cute Disney Christmas stuff out yet.

P.S. Sign me up for the Retiring to Orlando Club. I will be there....in about 20 more years.

This is in response to the last set of pics...we enjoy the Plaza, love that sundae. It used to be our dinner on our arrival day...we would ck in the resort, put our things away and then over to MK for dinner! The last couple of trips we have done the dessert party when we arrived, but not this year. Maybe I will ck to see what is available next Sunday...

As for snow, we got about 5 inches. My son was early dismissal and then delayed opening. He got out of a French test, just as the were going to take it the announcement came that it was early dismissal and that the period would end in 5 minutes!!

Muppet the Frog is too cute!! Kids really DO say the darndest things.

I've got one freaking out this morning - just acting like a whiny crying baby for no apparent reason. I'm running out of ideas for dealing with her. All over nothing - as usual. Is this what pre-teen years are like? Ugh.

We watched the Muppet Movie for the first time last night. It was a really cute movie. I liked The Muppet Show a lot growing up. I must admit that I don't know Angus. But, I'm glad Brooklynn got him.

Love The Plaza...yum. I read a rumor a while ago it might become the new Starbucks. And while I welcome Starbucks wholeheartedly to the Magic Kingdom and will happily get my vanilla latte...don't take away The Plaza. I truly hope it was a false rumor.
Well, we now know its going to be a few shops back from the plaza.

Don't know if Fantasmic is next. We shall see.

When we play Fantasmic, let's make the lines to get in real short.

It does. He may need a little sprucing up.

I would probably do the same thing.

Oh and you know that I would love to have my DIS friends come for a visit, when we make the big move. I just hope that it can happen while I'm still able to enjoy Disney!
Brooklynn is hilarious when someone is teasing her. You can see her mind start spinning as she tries to figure out if someone is kidding or not, and then she wants with all of her heart to handle it gracefully and not hurt anyone's feeling - for instance by saying, 'No, you can't have my brand new horse.' You can't tease Bella. She would have just told him okay, he could have that one or she'd go by him another, and it would have backfired on the guy!

Is it you ten year plan to be in Celebration, or at least in that area? You'll still be a spring chicken.

Well, maybe late spring or early summer...

Your pizza planet, "did we or didn't we", update cracked me up. Muppet the Frog. Love it!
Wonder where we will be off to next? I am going to find out in a minute.

And in case you haven't heard, the rumor I heard about Starbucks into The Plaza was incorrect - it's going into the Bakery! I have mixed feelings, and REALLY hope Disney does it like they did at DCA, keeping many Disney treats and a wonderful theme/look that fits, along with Starbucks treats and coffee and other drinks. I think it will fit very well if they do that, but people are very worried tonight about the treasured Main Street Bakery.
I take good notes for the first couple of days, but then I fizzle out or just forget where I put them. I have to rely on my feeble mind for recall, and since I am not a spring chicken, that's not very great memory. I rely on Jill a lot.

I will trust Disney to do it right until I see that they fail me.

Hi-dee-ho, northern neighbor!

Heavens, if Main Street StarBuckery doesn't have cinnamon rolls the size of Texas any more, we may catch Jill throwing rocks at the windows! I'm thinking Ernest T. Bass style whenever he got agitated about something. (It's me, it's me! It's Ernest T! CRASH!)


Have fun in the US!

P.S. I dare not go into a store looking for Disney Christmas things right now. I am already feeling withdrawal pains from no holiday trip, and I might buy out the whole place trying to recreate Osborne Lights, Candlelight Processional, and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party right here at home!

Cool! How do you say SNOWBALL FIGHT! in French?

We don't have a first day ritual. We usually go to Magic Kingdom, but not always.

See, here's how it is: they are like the girls are now, and that's cool, and they are grown like Jill is, and that's cool, but in between that, there are a few short years that are somewhat less than cool. Really, it's not even years, it's just certain minutes during those years, and unfortunately, those minutes can be rough.

Angus is Merida's horse - from Brave.

The Muppet Movie was very cute. We all saw it together, and the adults liked it, I'm sure, as much or more than the girls.

Fantasmic time?

Not yet.













Where did her Ma go wrong???



Salute to the great westerns. My dad love those shoot 'em up movies.







In the jungle, the mighty jungle...



This has been a really long goodbye, kid.



Some people like pictures of bad park shoes, so...







Jill, Sophie, Bella, Brooklynn, and Angus.



This movie used to scare the bejeezus (whatever bejeezus is) out of me. It wasn't so much the witch, but those flying monkeys were too much for this little girl to handle!



Movie time!

Maybe it is just my mood today but you are bringing the funny tonight.

The bad park shoes had me

I did the GMR in Oct. First time in several visits and well worth the short wait.

I so love following along with your trip reports. Just the virtual escape I was looking for this Saturday night.

What is your feeling about Great Movie Ride? Do you think it should be updated with more current movies or kept the same? I'm torn...

Love the photo of Jill, Sophie, Bella, Brooklynn, and Angus... so cute!

I have a friend that is moving into a brand new school right after Christmas and they are doing a building wide Wizard of Oz theme. Making a house with the socks and shoes sticking out came to mind at once.....

I have a feeling that you know exactly how I feel age wise.

Do you know how many I have seen that show at the castle form a distance and yet never go up and watch? One day I should.
Fun Dip was one of my faves as a kid.
I have never set foot in Pizza Planet. Another I should try.
I wish the pre-show for the Muppets was shorter. It feels like it will never end. I love the movie though it could use an update.
I love the Muppets gift shop.
Great shots inside TGMR.

You know I've never been a big wizard of oz fan, they could make that section of the ride a little smaller
