It will be so nice to see Magic Kingdom without walls and cranes again when that time finally comes. It's going to be fabulous and huge!
That was the night you had a meet at MK right? Well you will see where I was

Love all the shots from the new Fantasyland! Can you believe that we never made it over there??? I guess when we do, we will get to see lots of new stuff!
Hopefully I will get to see it soon. Officially opens Dec 5th--- I may need to see if I can make that happen.

Considering it was peak season I was able to get stuff done. It was HOT !!!!

To be fair it is called SPLASH Mountain. You have to expect to get wet at some point.

Nice HM at the Plaza! Never seen that one before. And you did a good job with the fountain picture, too.

And I'm SO glad you got your trash can pics. Wouldn't be the same without them.

Nice Dumbo pics! Looks fun.

I don't mind Splash, but I'm ALWAYS the one who gets soaked. I like to leave that for just before I leave the park, so I can get dry in the room.

Yay for the room ready text!! Love that!!

So around 2 or so was when you got the text that your room was ready?

I've yet to get one before around 4 p.m. Maybe next time!

Looking forward to reading more.

Great visit to MK! You had us all fooled!!!

Love your pictures!!! I haven't seen past attempts at the fountain picture, but the one you got is spectacular!

Fun lineup of rides. Once again, you got an awful (not horrible) lot done in a short span of time.

Thanks for the pictures of Fantasyland and Dumbo. I have never been on Dumbo. Must try it sometime.

for your room being ready.

Glad I didn't submit my incorrect guess...........

NOPE
I hit the road again and head to MK and the TTC at 9:35am



WOW, wouldn't have gone there...........well, maybe in my wildest dreams!!!

Parked in Simba and a tram was coming.




for perfect tram timing!!!

First time heading to the TTC via tram.

Seems like this trip may have been full of firsts...........

Lo and behold the new Peach monorail was approaching the station.



Doesn't look like a peach. Did it at least have some fuzz on it???

Monorail won the coin toss Here comes Light Blue.



What? No lake cruise on such a beautiful looking day???

But Remember Goofy? My AP. Who was sequestered in his own pouch since all my APs become demagnetized?

I slide Goofy in and wait...... NOTHING the CM has to scan it to let me in.
ROLLS EYES..........
Goofy let me down at the gate.

Oh Goofy!!! Say it ain't so!!!!

I ask the CM if it was demagnetized and she replied yes.
So my first ride would be Guest services.

Don't you just HATE that infamous Guest Services ride........

I hop into Guest services to be helped right away.

I ask him to check my AP and he tells me it is fine- not demagnetized. WHOO HOO GOOFY is GOOD.

Yeah Baby!!!!!!

I get my TIW with the AP discount and I am on my way fast. The CM earning his ears had not done one before so I taught him something new.
Not Horrible.

Hmmm, seems not much horrible on this trip, at least so far........ You sure this is really a horrible trip???

I stop for a PP. The CM made me do the “Princess pose”


What? No shorts? No water bottles? No Expedition Barbie, uh, Pat attire and accessories???

Which way do I head and which is the official first “ride” of the day?
Here is a hint.
In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki room..............

It is SPLASH Mountain not SOAK mountain. I usually get the cannon right on me. I never get really wet on the drop but I guess the weight distribution in the log must have been different.


I actually have to thank Marv for the Plaza HM. I was given really good hints on where to look.



It is not a Poolrat TR without trash can pics.

The new Dumbo is fun.

Yes I am the one who always gets soaked. I can usually wring out my clothes afterward.

The room ready text is one of the most wonderful things. Especially when it is so hot out and you are about to hit a wall.

No more new management.

I think a lot of people are happy about that little fact!!!

First partial day was wonderful- got so much done it was great.
I really had my "summer collection " out during that trip.

This is TRULY scary!!! It is like we don't even know you at all..............

I did get some cards but <spoiler> never did play. Totally forgot about it.
Can't imagine finding time for this either! Too many distractions........

Don't you just love how you can always find someone at Disney willing to help you out by taking a picture??? I try to do that for people whenever I see the opportunity.............and I'm not in such a hurry to get somewhere...............

We want the redhead.



Now who would EVER say something like that????

HM
Nice One!!!

I think AKL on New Years Day was the latest I ever got a text and that was around 3pm.

I guess I am lucky. Now that I said that, it will be after 4 next time.

So Far not Horrible.

I booked right at 11months. One of the reasons BCV is my home.

What are your dates in Oct?

I guess I get to keep everyone guessing.

I am actually a little too tall to stand up and get the crown on her head. I am a little too short to sit down and get it right so there I get in a kinda squat position and hope I can hold the camera steady.

I actually read they were moving and the closure is so they can move the theater or build a new one? Apparently the rumor is that Camp Mickey Minnie will become Avatarland.

I hope they don't go away for long and maybe they can do meet and greet in the mean time.
