Another day, another drenched child.

Storybook Circus looks so cute, I'm thrilled I get to see everything next month.

Mapping out treat stops for MNSSHP is extremely important. Free candy yo! (well, I use the term loosely because it's "free" with the price of a ticket. ).

Hahah, your video made me laugh. It was 47 seconds long and at least half of that was the car climbing the hill. Too funny!

Ahhh yay MNSSHP!! I want to go so badly! Can't wait to hear about the rest!

We couldn't keep the kids out of that splash pad. They loved it. I made him take his shoes and socks off before he went over there. The only other pair of shoes we had brought for him was crocs for the pool, so I wasn't letting him get his shoes wet.

I am so bummed we aren't going next month. I was so looking forward to having our dismeet and seeing all of the Christmas decorations and the FL expansion. And the most important aspect of going to WDW at Thanksgiving .... avoiding the psychological warfare that is our family gathering at holidays.

We had a TON of candy. All we have left is Smarties and Lemon Heads. Those will probably make their way into the trash. Or maybe I will go green and put them in our trick or treat bucket for Halloween.

Well I have to build up suspense for my readers, ya know. That is a really short ride, but DD really loves it.

We really had a great time at MNSSHP !! I hope you get to go sometime !! Put it on your Disney Bucket List !!

Day 5  Part 5

The costumes were really fun. I was able to sneak a photo of this family. Dad was Peter Pan, mom was Tink, little girl was Wendy, grandpa was Hook and grandma was Tiger Lily.



So cool !!

We continued Trick or Treating &











DD rode the tea cups. This time by herself.



Then she rode the carrousel



This took a while. They had some trouble with that ride for some reason. As she is riding I see some people being admitted BEHIND the construction wall in Fantasyland. I scooter over to check things out. I observe that they are letting people in for a sneak peak. I scooter back to gather my flock and we are admitted with the CM letting us know that this sections is still under construction and not finished. I was sooo excited to be a part of this !! They were letting us in for a sneak peak of Belles Enchanted Tales !!

DH took some photos.



You can see that there was a really long line. I was told I have to park the scooter and then get in line. Observing the length of the line, I turned back to get a vote from the rest of the family. None of them wanted to wait and the first parade was getting ready to start, so we decided to exit. I was kinda bummed, but the line was REALLY long and it didnt appear to be moving. The kids wanted to do more trick or treating, but I wanted to see the parade.

So we left and headed towards Liberty Square in hopes of finding a decent spot to watch the parade. And we did !! Right in front of the Diamond Horseshoe. But there were these spot lights that made picture taking difficult for DH.

So here are our photos of the Boo to You parade. Or the best that we could get with our point and shoot.

Headless Horseman



You can see the spot lights up there getting in the way. We got a pretty good one last year though.























I just love this parade !! The music is so infectious and seeing all of the characters dressed for Halloween is so cute. I love the Headless Horseman and the gravediggers. We didnt get a good photo of either. But they are so cool.

After the parade, we hit some more of the candy stops and then made our way over to the castle to try to get a decent spot for the fireworks. DH LOVES fireworks and he just wanted to enjoy them and not bother with getting photos that wouldnt be very good anyway, so after a couple of shots, we put the camera away.







We managed to snag a very good spot and no one stood up in front of us. For once.



After the fireworks, we rode Peter Pan, then DD, DH and DS rode BTMRR two times and DS rode Splash Mountain. I really wanted to ride with him, but I didnt think getting in and out of the boat would be easy for me, so he went alone. And when I say alone &.. I mean he had a boat all to himself. He was pretty stoked about that.

We did some more candy trails and DD rode Aladdins Carpets and by 11:30 PM we were exhausted and we headed back to the dock to catch the boat back to Wilderness Lodge.

It was a really fun night. We got TONS of candy and saw some really cool costumes. There were a few young ladies that were dressed in a rather skimpy manner. One in particular caught DDs eye and she turned back to us to say, wow !! She really wanted us to see her b***s !!! DH and I completely cracked up when she said it. It was just so funny &. And true. Seriously, one good sneeze and this girl would have been a centerfold. Just sayin.

Wow- you are really churning out the updates. I caught up on the last couple updates this morning before I left for work and here you have gone and posted again.

Anyway - Story book circus does look so cute and your daughter looks like she is really enjoying the trick or treating. I hate how they give you like one piece of candy in the beginning and then by the end of the night they are giving away handfuls.

I also am surprised how wet your son got in the Splash zone. I think my nephews are going to love that when they return next summer.

I try to post one a day. Since I am just laying here in the bed after this surgery, I don't have much else to do. I have been putting off checking my work e-mail this morning.

We got plenty of candy and it isn't like you can't go back through the line. I wasn't really paying attention to how much they got, but they loved it.

Yes, they need to change the name to SOAK zone, because BOTH of mine got soaked. Remember to remind them to take their shoes off, because if they are wearing tennis shoes and they get soaked, then you are asking for blisters. And often those kinds of shoes don't dry out over night.

Sorry to hear about the swelling.
You have entered the Twilight Zone. Do not touch that dial. You have entered the 1960's and love tye dye. Everything you touch will turn this way.

Looks like such a fun time! And it makes me really happy that all the CMs in the pictures look so happy too.

That family you snuck a picture of is so great! I love it when families follow a theme at MNSSHP.

I'm so sorry you missed out on the preview! That's such a bummer.

Nice at your DD calling out the scantily clad ladies. So wise.

That family had it going on !! So cute !!

I will see it eventually. The line was too long. We didn't want to waste our MNSSHP night in line for that. We will see it in January.

DH and I were rolling !! She is hilarious sometimes !! You should have seen how big here eyes were. Like whoa !!

Day 6- Part 1

Since we had such a late night the previous night, we slept in - got up around 9:30 AM. I had planned to go over to Pepper Market to check out their buffet that was supposed to be a QS credit, but since it was already almost 10 AM and they stopped serving breakfast at 11 AM, I thought we would be too rushed. So we went down to Roaring Forks again for breakfast. And we all pretty much got the same thing. Hey, it worked for us. I guess I can be as much of a creature of habit as my DD. So you can see where she might get it from.

DH and I both got the Croissant Breakfast Sandwich



It was good as always.

DD went with her favorite of Mickey Waffles



And DS went with his current standby of pancakes



We went back to the room and picked up a few things and then headed out to the car and over to Epcot !! This day was going to be our World Showcase day and I had actually planned to only spend a few leisurely hours there.

DD and DS REALLY wanted to do Sum of All Thrills and when we got there





The line was pretty long. DD really wanted to do it and we werent in any hurry, so they waited. It only took about 15-20 min., so not too bad.

When they were done with that and we headed back outside, we discovered it was raining, so we hurried over to the other Innoventions building to do the

Great Piggy Bank Adventure again





After that, we checked out the video games



And some of the other games/exhibits







We looked outside and it was still raining, but radar indicated it wouldnt last much longer. So we made a dash for Mouse Gear.







We looked for a while



DD spied a doll she wanted and I spied some pajamas that I was sure would make me feel better after my upcoming surgery.

And we noticed it wasnt raining any more.

Then we got moving towards World Showcase. But first, we had to stop and get our phone for the Phineous and Ferb game.
