I haven't been over by Dumbo and Barnstormer at night, but it actually looks very cool. I love the addition on lights and water to the new Dumbo, and I think that the Barnstormer is the perfect mini-coaster for young kids. Preparing them for Thunder!

Jill does look extremely happy in that photo! It's crazy how much happened to all of you after that. I'm so glad everything is getting back to normal.

Ok, Storybook Circus. Right now, is it just Dumbo and Barnstormer? I'm out of the loop with the changes. We leave in a month and I'm starting to panic just a little bit.

Enjoyed the update and seeing Jill happy in the pictures!

Kelli - there is also Casey Jr's splash/soak zone back there now. Lots of little kids getting SOAKED!!!
The Belle cottage/story thing is apparently in soft opening. I've seen a lot on FB about that!

Hi, MeMom! Sorry I didin't answer earlier but I'm still fighting w/ my internet ( score : Internet 10 X Tania 0 ). I'm really looking forward to meet you! I do have pictures, the problem is uploading them...I'll see if I can figure it out ( if the aforementioned internet allows me to ...).It won't be too hard to recognize me though...I'll be the one with two bored looking teenagers who will be walking 20 steps ahead of me...( just kidding, i'll try to post some pictures, ok ?).

I'll see if I can change it to an earlier time, if not I'll just cancel it. No biggie.

So the meet is at POP - Hippy Dippy Pool at 1:30pm.

My only must do that afternoon is the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade at 3pm.
We didn't see it last time and it's one of my favorites.

MsAnita ...can't wait to find out what your costumes will be. I'm sure they will be great!

Poolrat I will want to hear all about DL. I still havn't decided where to stay yet. I'm hoping for a passholders discount and stay on property.
Seems like so many stay off site across the street cause it's so close to the entrance and way cheaper.
So I'm going to miss all this big Distown celebrities??? I'm really sad I'm going to miss you all by one day....Maybe I will still be able to meet the Disytown mayor(aka MeMom)...that would be nice . I hope you all have a really great time at Disney

Hi! My name is Tania and I'll be at Disney from oct 3 until oct 12. I think it would be nice if I could bring them something special from Brazil....do you know their resort name & room number ?

I am glad they are getting to go. She is added to the prayer list for pixie dust and a miracle.

I need to get back to Dumbo at night.


Everyone looks like they are having a blast.


I am sure seeing Jill so happy brings a smile to your face.

I can't wait to see the Circus area lit up at night, hopefully it won't be too far in the future.

Jill did look really happy. It won't be too long until you will see her smiling in Disney with her 3 girls.

We will let you know. It won't be any time soon. I'm guessing sometime in 2013.

The water/lights double Dumbo is very cool. I usually like 'originals' on things, but I really like this.

Speaking of being tall enough for Barnstormer, guess who was 37 inches at his 2-year appt? Yep, so he can ride it in May! 3 more inches and he can also ride Splash Mountain and Soarin (not to mention a few others that I don't think he'd be ready for yet). I think he'd do fine on Splash as long as I squeezed him tight during the drop. Soarin I'm not so sure about - I don't know that he'd get the concept yet. But May is 8 months away so we'll have to see....they change so much in that amount of time!

Thanks for the pics - they were great!
Yes, a lot will change, and Soarin' is so mild, I wouldn't hesitate. As far as the fun factor for him, it might not be amazing, but I don't see a reason not to take him, either.

We DO have snow all the time!!

MK all dolled up for fall makes me so nostalgic! My first trip was during the fall! I love it so much!

I cannot wait to check out the new Dumbo! It looks SO GOOD! They really did a great job! Though I'm not surprised at all!
I am always praising October trips to people who ask when to go. As much as it is also beautiful in December, the crowds are more of a factor for someone just going once, so I tell them about all of the great things that happen in October.

October will be wonderful!

It makes a huge difference in the atmosphere, and for little ones, the waiting/play area is fantastic.

Barnstormer is a good kid coaster, although I think it could be a tiny bit milder. I think it's a little much for two year olds, but it seems like they are okay with it - most of them, anyway - so what do I know?

It was great to get so many new pictures. I didn't go through the Barnstormer queue, though, so I may do that in October.

I hate that you won't get to meet the whole gang at Pop. As for that mayor thing, I think you're going to be calling for a re-election!

It's funny how happy I got when I posted that picture, because although Jill and I had some huge laughs in the hospital when it was just the two of us together, she was still sick, and things were still not right. She's coming up here next weekend, and I think this will be the time things will feel 'normal' and like that picture again.

I look so forward to that and to showing Sophie our happy place. If she wakes up and looks around.





It is Friiiiiiday, DIStown! What's going on for everyone this weekend?

stacieki I will pray for your friend and her family.
I hope they have a magical time at WDW and I'm sure every wish you have for them will come true.

We enjoyed our ride on the new Dumbo and it is so beautiful.
The Circus Train is awesome, cute area for the little ones.
I took a lot of pics here on our last trip.
I was happy to see the Railroad now makes a stop there again.

I added a day onto our trip....we now fly out Wednesday night.

I have a secret...I just won a Monster High doll for Lexi on Ebay. It is a Target exclusive (we don't have Target here yet) so it was impossible for her to find. She has the other two dolls in that set so I'm going to surprize her by adding it to her window display one day while we are there. I hope I can pull it off.

She is going to love it!!!

Not much going on here this weekend. Gotta work.
