The Riverboat was so peaceful and it was a totally different way to see the park. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Tom Sawyer Island is a must do for the next trip since it's been a while!

Part 16: Pirates of the Caribbean

And then off to Pirates for another round! This time, on a less crowded boat so I could try to get some shots.

I tried to get the hitchhiking ghosts, but they are hard!


MK 481 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Not my ghosts, but I love these new ghosts at the end…


MK 483 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

So on my last night at MK, I didn’t see the fireworks or the parade, but I went one last go or two on some favorite classics, POTC, HM and BTMRR. I also got on one first ride of the Riverboat.

I had to get some last shots of the castle on my way out though.

Not yet. I can't decide if I want to do DL or WDW. In my dreams it would be both! I guess I should talk to my possible travel partners too to see what they would like to do.

Thanks! It's hard to get good shots on pirates. I had it set to the widest aperture I could and I pumped up the ISO to 6400. Or I might have set the shutter speed to 60 and then let it pick the aperture. I can't remember which way, but they both would be similar. I can't wait to go back and try again. I forgot to use my faster lens so I think my 60D would do even better with that lens.

July 25, 2012

Last morning at WDW.

It was a sad morning. I was literally whining and sulking about having to leave. And loudly. I’m surprised Blanche didn’t tell me to shut up or hit me or something. I was so loud that some other wonderful, understanding woman explained that it was her last day too and she totally got how I was feeling. Hahahaha

I didn’t take a whole lot of pictures because I was so depressed. It’s not a fun day. I did take some. We had breakfast, got some extra snacks and things with leftover credits, packed up and waited for DME. The flights home were fine too. No problems.

The view from our door:

Looking a little more to the right:

A giant slug I was fascinated with. I’d never seen one quite that big. Another kindergarten teacher would have been proud of me. I call her the bug lady because she likes bugs so much. If you look at a slug closely, you will see the way it breathes. I never knew that until she told me. I think you can see the tiny holes on its sides as it breathes. (If I remember correctly, I’m the Disney teacher, not the bug teacher!)

Blanche had seen the faces in the trees while walking back to the room after a snack the night before. She asked me to get some pictures of them.

Neither of us had ever seen them before, but I saw some at a wedding I was … helping the photographer with. (I guess that’s the best way to explain!) I like this kissy faced one best.

My last Mickey Waffle for breakfast. I need to find a Mickey Waffle Iron!


from raw-0564 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Blanche left a Mickey ears headband behind. Hahahaha

The picture by the washroom area.

A CM was washing the chairs.

With a pressure washer it looked like.


from raw-0571 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

So that’s the end of my trip. Do I need to say that I loved Port Orleans Riverside? That it was a good trip? It was incredible. I am sad that I cancelled my March trip, but I will be okay. I am in the talks with Blanche for a trip to DL in July, with a possible CLUB 33 visit!!! I am also in the talks with another friend, a teacher at my school, about a WDW trip in August. And yes, I would do both! The flights are pricey, but having friends with me makes it easier because we share the cost of the hotels. Since I often go solo, it definitely helps. And my friend who wants to do WDW has never been, and she’s into photography too. It would be fun to be there for all her firsts and to take pictures with someone else since Blanche doesn’t even own a camera…. I know I know… she’s NUTS!

Thanks for reading!

Great report! We'll be in DL in June and it should be great. We were there last August and it was great weather -- no rain but a little hot. I would imagine July would be just like that!

Thanks! I hope the weather will be perfect, but I'll still love DL no matter what.
