I will now be traveling to Rio and possibly staying there for a month! I'm not cancelling Disney, I will just be making some changes in my life (and on the Disney trip) to save some money. But still, there will be MANY pictures to come for the next TR too. Don't worry!

July 21, 2012 Part 1: Breakfast and the start of our day.

We got up and got ready. I have no problems getting up early at WDW! I was just too excited to get going for the day to worry about lack of sleep. I knew we could take a break anyways, so I wasn’t too concerned. After making sure we were our beautiful selves, which is not that hard (hahaha), we headed out to breakfast. I, of course, being me, snapped some shots on the way to Riverside Mill.

We paid oop, so I got a kids meal version of the waffles.


POR 160 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Blanche got a banana! LOL She’s not a big eater sometimes.


POR 161 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

On the way to drop off our mugs in our room.

Then out to the bus stop. We were heading to Hollywood Studios.

I know some of you don’t like the hat, but I’d never been there before the hat, so I’m not sure how I’d feel if it were gone completely.

DHS 156 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

DHS 158 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Where do you think we’ll head first?


DHS 159 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Actually, I believe I walked ahead of Blanche, but slower than I should have been because I kept stopping for pictures.


DHS 160 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DHS 161 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I love Brave. It was such a good movie. I don’t think I’d seen it at that point, but I was aware that I’d love it. It was a given to me!


DHS 162 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I was heading to get our fastpasses to Toy Story Midway Mania.

Sorry!

Has it really been almost a month since I've updated? I'm so sorry. If anyone is still here, I'll get working on the rest of my TR straight away!

July 21, part 2: He called the head of security on me!

Then we went in to browse some of the shops. This was a totally different trip, slow, relaxing and wonderful. All the trips were wonderful, but this was nice to relax and take some time and not go so commando.

Sorry for the blur on this one.


DHS 165 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

He was calling Mickey to tell him to watch out for me because he asked Blanche what happened to her foot and she said I kicked her and broke it! It was funny because he described what I looked like, what I was wearing and everything. He then told me that I should stay away from Animation Academy because that’s where the Boss was today. LOL

Off to Starring Rolls for a snack. We love our snacks. And we’d never been to Starring Rolls, so I was excited to try it out.


DHS 166 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DHS 167 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Yes , we shared another Napoleon. This top was easier to eat than the one at Epcot, but with a knife, the one at Epcot would have been fine. I am not a big icing fan… most of the time. This was fine.


DHS 168 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

We then went to see the Voyage of the Little Mermaid. We sat in the front in an accessible area. Blanche didn’t like that, but I said we were allowed, but if we felt someone else needed it, we could move for them. No one else came in that needed it. It just made more sense for her to be able to stretch it out comfortably.

You can barely see Prince Eric in this one.


DHS 181 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

So I sat up a little straighter to try to see him.

I love the Voyage of the Little Mermaid. But then again, I’m a huge fan of the movie. The front row is a great spot to sit, to stretch out your legs and enjoy the show, but it’s not the best spot for getting great pictures.

Part 3: Pixar Place and 50s Prime Time Café

We figured it wasn’t too much longer for our fast passes to open up, and we didn’t want to waste too long, since we had some lunch ADRs to get to, so we decided to wait around the area for our time.


DHS 191 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DHS 192 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

After the snow we got today (not much, but I like heat of Florida in July!) I love the look of these pictures. They’re making me warm, and I like the blue sky in most of them!

Is anyone else a little perturbed that they didn’t start the game in the right square?


DHS 193 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DHS 194 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

This guy was playing with the kids in the area. He was really good.


DHS 195 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

My brothers had little army men like this. I remember the feet. LOL

DHS 203 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

We went through the line and got to ride in the accessible car as the stairs were too much for Blanche. To be honest, these cars are much easier, as they have a button to push AND the string to pull, you can chose! The button is a lot easier to press than the string is to pull.

Looks like Blanche is more accurate, but I shoot faster because I had the higher score. Not by a whole lot though.


DHS 204 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DHS 205 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

We were heading to 50s Prime Time Café for lunch. I had really, really loved the chicken last time and we’d decided we were going to share.

I found it odd that they took it out on one plate. I had just assumed they would have charged a split plate fee and divied it up for us. Oh well. It was still delicious. Okay, now looking at this picture, it’s making me want to go back! For the chicken! LOL


DHS 206 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

After lunch, we decided to head back to the hotel for a rest. I knew I could use a rest after the EMHs the night before, so I didn’t mind!

I snapped a few shots in the windows on the way out. We liked the sewing stuff, because it made us think of my sister (aka Rose, the third Golden Girl). Rose sews doll and people clothing. She’s going to make me a princess dress for Halloween. We have the pattern for Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella. I think I was Snow White first.


DHS 208 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I liked this. It changed, as you will see in a few pictures.

Great updates! I can't wait to take my four year old daughter to see the Voyage of Little Mermaid next summer...she loved the Little Mermaid ride at Disneyland last summer and am sure she will love the Little Mermaid show. I have never seen it since my son never wanted to go previous years! He won't have a choice this time!

Thanks!

It's a retelling of the movie, but I love that, so it works for me. I'm sure since your daughter loved the LM ride at DL, she will definitely like this! Your son will just have to deal with it!

Part 4: POFQ

Here I am, relaxing and waiting for a bus.


DHS 218 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I want the heat back!


DHS 219 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I decided to get off at POFQ, both to take some pictures, and to use their facilities! LOL We wanted to find something from POFQ for Rose, since that was where we’d stayed on our first trip as the Golden Girls. I figured it was beautiful out, so I could wander around the resort taking some pictures and then walk up to our room for a nap.


POFQ 5 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


POFQ 6 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I wish I’d bought the one that said who needs Prince Charming….


POFQ 7 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I looked at these to buy for Rose, but they were just a tad too much for me. Even the 4x6 was over $25 I think.


POFQ 8 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


POFQ 9 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

And I took a picture… of the wrong room number! LOL Ours was opposite, room 3130 I believe.


POFQ 10 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


POFQ 12 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


POFQ 14 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


POFQ 15 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I did buy Rose something. I went to the pool bar and found a cute little plastic drink glass that had POR and POFQ on it. I bought one for her, and now I regret not getting one of my own too! Oh well. I guess that means I have to go back another time. Disney really should have more resort themed merchandise. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t, I think they’d be quite popular!

I played the game with the Alligator. The guests all around kept watching and laughing… well, maybe I screeched and jumped and giggled, so I might have been a little entertaining. But ask Rose and Blanche (If they ever come read the TR!) I do that! It was not a show!


POR 181 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I met Blanche at the room, and we had a nap. After a little bit, Blanche woke me up and told me that the ceiling was leaking! We were on the ground floor and there was a drip coming from the vanity area ceiling. She called the “front desk” and then I went down. The only other ground floor room in the Mansions was in Magnolia Terrace in a Garden View Room. We got a credit back for the difference, since we’d had a pool view (even though we couldn’t see the pool). And it stank! Literally. It had a disgusting odor! I can’t even explain the odor, but it smelled almost chemical like it had been recently VERY cleaned. So we went back and told the front desk. But they had nothing else for us; Blanche didn’t want to stay in Alligator Bayou. I can’t remember what we did after that. We went somewhere because we wanted to see if the stench would go away. I didn’t take any pictures for the rest of the day, so that’s the big reason I can’t remember anything! LOL I’ll have to find my receipts and fill you in from that. Receipts are helpful!

July 22, 2012, Part 1: The Grand Floridian

Our room smell was slowly fading away, but each time I entered the room, I could smell it. I guess it was more that I was getting used to the smell than the smell was fading.

This was the morning we were heading to 1900 Park Fair for breakfast. I think we’d said we would take whichever bus came first between MK and Epcot. If I remember correctly, it was MK and we took the monorail over to the GF.

We stayed at the GF in 2010 and we loved it. We still talk about staying there again and relaxing at the resort more. We were shopping so much that we barely had time to enjoy the resort.


Grand Floridian 1 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


GF 2 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Such a beautiful resort! I fell in love with it when I saw it on Full House.


GF 3 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


GF 4 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


GF 5 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


GF 6 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

It looks funny because I took the picture from the wrong side. Sorry…. I could turn it around, but then the GF would be upside down!

A CM had placed Tigger on a toy monorail and was driving him around. It was so cute!

Part 2: 1900 Park Fair

I love the mural in the background. It’s so pretty. I wouldn’t mind having one of those painted at my house one day!


GF 16 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

My first plate:


GF 17 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Yes, we liked the kids Mickey plates better than the adult ones, so we picked those up! LOL

Blanche’s first plate.


GF 18 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

She didn’t really like the juice, but I did. I had two glasses.

Our waitress really wanted us to have our picture taken in front of this mural thingy. So we did.

[img]http://*****************************/8155676776_27d6691f93_b.jpg[/img]
GF 19 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Then Pooh came and found us, so she took our picture with him.


GF 20 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

At least he didn’t try to eat Blanche this time.


GF 20 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

He came around again and I got to snuggle in a little more.


GF 20 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


GF 23 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

My second plate. LOL

Alice was funny. She talked to us about the Chessire Cat and how he liked stripes too.

GF 26 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Oh my goodness! The Mad Hatter! He came around when Blanche was looking in the other direction and ducked down right beside her head. When she turned, he was right in her face and she screamed and jumped! He asked what she was looking at and she couldn’t talk. I said that she was looking for some handsome men, without realizing that there was one beside her. It was so funny. He was quite happy with my comment.

I don’t really know what happened to my lip in this one, but I’m happy to see Tigger.

Mary Poppins said that I know all her teachings. I said that I didn’t know all of them yet, but I would practice!

I need to practice my hand placement for sure.


GF 33 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


GF 34 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

We really liked her boots.


GF 35 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

All in all, the food was decent (I'm a big breakfast fan... even though I don't eat big breakfasts every day!) and the characters were fun! I'd go back. I still want to go for supper because of the Tremaines, but I am not so sure about the food for supper!

Part 3: More GF

I took a few pictures of this because Blanche wants her brothers to make her one similar to it.

Blanche forgot to smile.

So, being a good teacher, I made her do it again until she got it right.


GF 45 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Oh, we shopped a little at the GF. I bought a glass mug with GF on it, and a key chain I believe.

The balloon wallet was a purchase from earlier.

Back at our hotel.

I think this is where some of the CMs get dropped off. The bench must be to relax as they wait for their bus!

Then I started playing with my camera and nearly fell off my bed.

POR 191 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I played some more and made it so Blanche had some very large and plasticky looking feet, but I decided to be nice and not post them on here!

Again, I can’t remember what we did the rest of the day. I will have to get the receipts. I know we didn’t do a park though, we took the night off.

July 23, 2012 Part 1: Animal Kingdom

Blanche and I got to AK a few minutes after park opening. We entered the park and split up so I could get our fastpasses for Expedition Everest. She went straight to the Safari and must have walked faster than I was expecting her to. She went in to the ride queue and then (thankfully) came back out and found me.

We started the Safari, and our guide lost his sound. It was still a nice safari ride, he stopped and let us take pictures. I like that now! They’d never done it before. As a person that loves taking pictures, it’s a nice plus when they allow you to do that.

Our guide.


AK 7 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

He told us that we’d be able to go around again after the ride, so we could get the full experience, if we wanted to. Without waiting in the queue.

Blanche and I were in the front row, and we noticed that the engine light was on in the truck! Sorry for the blurriness, but I thought it would be fun to document that! LOL Poor guy was not having much luck with his truck. He was on his CB radio quite a bit trying to let them know what was going on.

It was the baby rhino’s first day out on the safari!

That was the end of the safari. We decided that we may as well go around again, since we didn’t have to wait. I was hoping that the giraffes would be nearby again. We all got off at the exit, and there was only one other family with Blanche and I. We stayed at the exit, then got on the next truck after the guests got off. We got to go around and see “behind the scenes” for a minute. I should have taken some pictures. They wash off the wheels and sides of each truck in between guests. Disney is very efficient and clean! LOL

Our next guide.

There are more Safari pictures on my flickr account if you want to see them. Just click on any picture and it will take you to my flickr.

The Tree of Life. I took a few pictures that are very similar, so I played with them with my editing program. I haven’t decided which ones I like best… yet.
