Why. Is. Time. Moving. Soooooo. Slowly?? Sixteen more days for me, fourteen for you. I can't wait any longer! And yeah, my work days for this next couple of days will not be fun either. I'm working 13 hour overnight shifts that actually end up being more like 15 to 17 hour shifts with all the paperwork! Anyway, best not to think about it! We can do it! Only two more weeks!!

It's so hard to narrow down choices when you have that many food and drinks to pick! But all your wish list items sound delicious! That apple strudel from Germany and the iced coffee from belgium look so good.

Your trip is getting so close! I bet work feels like forever when you know you're just about to leave for Disney...

It was really hard to go wrong wherever you stop, and you're an F&W veteran, so I'm sure you've got it covered...

...I just had lunch but writing about F&W is making me hungry...

Haha, no, I don't pack until the day before my trip, I always take the day off of work before I go so I have the entire day to pack! I like waiting til the last minute!

Thank you! I'm so excited for Food and Wine!

I'm so excited about Farrell! They wanted him last year, I think he's going to be really good, the players all seem to love him! I think Papi is about to sign a one or two year contract, so I'm hopeful for next year!

Ugh, I don't know! I can't wait any longer either! Ugh I'm sorry you have to work such long days before your trip, that must make the time go even slower! I have one full week of work left, next week, and then only 2 days after next week, but I have a feeling next week is going to drag since we have that stupid hurricane coming to CT and it's going to rain for like, a week straight! Ughh!!! I want to goooooo!!!

Thanks! I really need to try that apple strudel, it looks awesome! And the iced coffee is one of my favorites, I just hate how expensive it is!

We're getting close now! I just have to get through next week and then 2 days of work the week after, so 7 work days all together then I'm officially on vacation! I can't wait! SO ready for Disney!

Yay I'm so glad you guys liked F&W, although how could you not?

Ugh I'm sure that pancake was awful, it just sounds gross! I've had the fondue and pierogie, and while they're not the best ever, they're still really good! Brandon actually hated the fondue but I loved it! I just love dipping bread in cheese, even if it's not the greatest, it's still good!

Your list looks very adventurous! See, I'm not very brave when it comes to trying exotic things, but I am intrigued with Argentina now...hopefully I'll try to be more open to trying new things this year!

Haha, well, we'll see about that...this last weekend of F&W is going to be crazy I think, in terms of crowds, so we'll see how much we actually get to do! I'm not too worried though, I'm just happy to be going back to Disney!!

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Must Do's!

Hi guys! Since I only have 13 DAYS left before my trip, I figured I should get moving with these updates! I just have my MVMCP and Epcot must do lists left, and then it will probably be just 10 days of me posting random "OMG I'M SO EXCITED" updates here! Haha, no, not really, I do have some things in mind, (like a whole update about Minnie Ears...seriously!) so stay tuned!

Oh, speaking of Minnie ears...I finally joined twitter! I'm @minnie_ears if any of you are on there and you want to follow along! I just got started yesterday, so I haven't done much yet, I'm still trying to figure it all out, but I'm hoping I will be doing lots of tweeting from the parks when I'm there!

MVMCP Must Do's!

(All pictures were borrowed from the Disney Tourist Blog)



It's kind of hard to do this list, since the parties haven't actually happened yet, and I don't have a map or schedule or list of characters. But I've been to MVMCP twice, so I kind of know what to expect and what I want to see!



I'd like to see the castle show, if there is time! We always skip it and it would be nice to try something new, I'm sure it's adorable!



We HAVE to see the Once Upon a Christmastime parade, it is my absolute FAVORITE Disney parade in all the land! It is so perfect, Disney and Christmas, my 2 favorite things! Could I be any more excited???



We also have to see Holiday Wishes! Just picture regular Wishes, with Christmas music, and fireworks that are like, 1000 times better and that's Holiday Wishes! It is SO perfect!



I want to try to watch the parade from Main Street, to see the beautiful castle all lit up in the background, and to see the SNOW on Main Street!

I'm sure I will want to meet some characters, I like seeing Mickey and Minnie in their little holiday outfits, and if the line isn't too crazy for the dwarfs, I'd like to see them again, but I don't have a specific list of characters that I have to meet, just whoever we see that doesn't have a line that's too long! And if the FLE is open, I'm sure we'll go in there for a little while, since it seems like our chances of seeing it on a regular day are slim to none now, since they are doing AP previews all week now.

I just want to enjoy my time at the party and take in all the Disney Christmas magic that MK has to offer! I loved going for Halloween and MNSSHP last year, but I'm a Christmas girl, and this is my favorite time of year to go to Disney!



Up next...finally, my EPCOT must do's!

YAY for twitter!

I would highly recommend the castle show! It seriously is too cute.

The character offerings at the Christmas party aren't as exciting as the Halloween ones. Last year I just had EUGENE AND RAPUNZEL on my radar, and after that... (well, I got sick, but even if I hadn't I think I wouldn't have been in a hurry to see too many other characters.) I mean, they're all great, but I think Christmas Minnie and Mickey are good ones to see!

After doing MNSSHP, I'm looking forward to the Christmas Party...probably in 2015 or so for us...

Joyce and I aren't parade people, but we saw the Halloween parade and it was awesome! We also did the Keys to the Kingdom tour and saw people practicing for the Christmas parade off far behind Splash Mountain. Back there we got to see all the floats for Christmas, so that was pretty cool. The CM pointed out two Hidden WALTS on the floats, so if you want me to try to describe them, just let me know!

Man, I am so jealous you get to go to the Christmas party. I like MNSSHP but MVMCP is better since I'm a Christmas girl too. One of these years I'll finally get to see the decorations again...

Also added you on twitter (I'm mugirl0307)!

Girl, I would SO rock those Minnie ears at the airport! Who cares about what Brandon thinks? DO IT! (That reminds me, I think I might have a pair tucked away somewhere...)

If Greg and I ever make it back during the 'official' Christmas holiday season in Disney, I think we have to give MVMCP another try. I was so less than impressed when we went. I didn't care for the parade. It was drizzly, though and we were tired and it was one of less memorable trips in general. I'm not sure any parade could beat the Boo to you parade in my books, though!

I'm realllllllly hoping they are going to do the first castle lighting while we are there next week. I think we have a pretty good chance. I'm hoping that we'll really be able to see a lot of the xmas decor up before we leave. That would be amazing to have food and wine and xmas in one trip!

P.S. Did they update the park hours for your trip again? I checked tonight and the hours at MK have been extended again! It's now open until 1am on Nov. 6 and opening at 8am everyday! SO EXCITED! (Making me a little worried about my no ADR thing I have going on, though!)

Ahhhh I know, I'm so excited too, I just want this stupid hurricane out of my life! I feel like if the power goes out for a few days, it's going to make this time DRAG even more than it already is!

I want to say we're going to the Thursday party, the 15th? But I'm still not 100% sure, I don't know if I want to wait that long. I'm going to wait until we're closer, so I can start stalking the weather and see what they're saying about the week, I don't want any chance of rain on whatever day I'm going to the party!

Me too!

MVMCP is so much fun! A lot of people like MNSSHP better, and while it is fun, I like Christmas so much more than Halloween so this party is amazing to me!

I'm definitely going to try to fit the castle show in...if New Fantasyland is open though, forget it, all of my time will be spent there!

Yeah, I know the characters at MVMCP aren't as exciting as MNSSHP, but I pretty much just want to see Mickey and Minnie. If I can find Pooh and Friends, I might want to see them. I've heard Belle and the Beast won't be out this year, which sucks, because I've always wanted to meet Belle in her Christmas gown. I'm just going to keep my eye out for characters with short lines! I'd LOVE to meet Rapunzel with Eugene, if they are around, I'll definitely look for them!

There's nothing better than Christmas and Disney. I wish the F&W festival went until December, because I'd rather go in December, but I'll take what I can get! You should definitely try to go around Christmas someday!
