Our skipper did the best she could with what she had to work with,we're in Disney people get into it more have a little fun come on now!!

It's really too bad she couldn't get her jeep started this morning but I'm glad someone was able to get it to turn over!!



am I the only one whpo feels this rock is in need of a rafiki on top?







and my best ephalant shot to date on Jungle Cruise



we returned safely to the dock and set off on another Quest but where were we going??

Actually that was a trick question we were headed somewhere completely different ...I was in need of a serious dose of my disney boyfriend so we went over to ride POTC ,I bought a really nice Jack skellington shirt in the shop afterwards,and then we hopped on the monorail...GOLD!!



















and then of course he let Hailey have a dance too

then came Cinderella



Lady Tremaine went nuts when she saw my girls dressed as her daughters,they were a major hit and she made sure to let the entire restaurant know how magnificent they were,then she said that fairy grandmothers make far better dresses than fairy godmothers do.





then Drizella came by and got really excited!!



she posed the girls like her



and Anastasia liked the dresses too but she said that by the next time she wants to see both of them dressed as her instead



and with a hug for Riley she was off to seek out a prince of her very own

After dinner I went to change the girls outfits for our next adventure but there was one problem my Riley didn't fit her pirate dress I don't know how that happened because I had tried it on her the week before and it was fine so she ended up having to stay in her Anastasia dress( let that be a hint to where we were going next)and just wait until you see how adorable Hailey looked in her next costume!!
Anyways,we got on another monorail,only this time I didn't write down what colour it was ,but I wanna say it was black so let's go with that shall we?We arrived at our destination but had some time to kill so we shopped in the shops ( I have to say shops instead of stores because it's been brought to my attention that calling them stores doesn't make sense because we don't say we're going storing)
soon enough we came across the place we needed to be which was of course none other than The Pirate and Pals Fireworks Cruise









When it was time to check-in we were given pirate bandanas and sent to a waiting room.The kids were kept busy with pirate colouring pages and puzzles.Then we were introduced to our pirate captains Patch and Patch(although neither was wearing a patch hmmm odd)they were hilarious,they led us into a large banquet hall where some people snacked on popcorn,cotton candy,ice cream,cake and chocolate coins and others lined up right away to meet captain hook and mr smee.Out of the corner of my eye I noticed something on the floor,it was a 50$ dollar bill so I picked it up and turned it in to the nearest cast member because if that was mine I would hope someone would turn it in.Then we met hook and Smee and Hook was not happy about Haileys gear ......

I stocked my bag full of treats to take on the boat as Patch and Patch separated us into 2 crews



and each crew was led by a pre-chosen child who carried the flag for our crew ,we were on team Smee.Out of the 2 Patches ours was my fave and he was a total riot.we were loaded onto our vessel






and out to the lake to watch the electrical water pageant.Now I've seen it before but not like this ,it is so much better up close and personal.








and of course the finale.....

Ahhh~ We LOVED the P&P Fireworks Cruise...it is SO MUCH FUN! Not to mention the primo fireworks view without fighting crowds! It was def one of the highlights of our trip. The Peter Pan costume is adorable! Is that what your other DD was supposed to wear also, or did she have another character? Can't wait to see the reaction of a "certain someone" at the end of the voyage...

he signed her doll for her







If I had to say anything that I didn't like it would be the lack of transportation after it was done(royal pain)but now I know and can plan ahead for the next time .

So when we left the pirate n pals we had a heck of a time getting bacvk to our resort,people were being directed to walk to MK(no bus or monorail running at the time)and catch a bus from mk to wherever they were headed,but cm's were having people turn back from mk to contemporary then everyone had to either take a bus to DHS or downtown disney,the problem with that was that everytime one pulled up they were too full to get on it took forever but after 5 Dhs busses and 3 downtown disney buses we finally got one to DTD and then waited for a bus to PORS now it might have not been so bad if my kids hadn't been up since 3 am and we were now pushin 11 or since i hadnt slept well plus been up since 3 am,anyway we got back ,opened the door n pretty much fell into our beds.
The next morning we slept in and then set off for Animal kingdom,although this time we found ways to amuse ourselves with the camera while we waited for a bus.

Riley took this pic of Hailey and I

then Hailey took one of me with ry

Riley n duffys

and then we had to get one of Grandma

WOOHOOO we got on a bus finally!!!!(the wait wouldn't have been so long if we weren't travelling with someone on a scooter)



Who knows where that kids parents are but i never noticed him until i looked at the pic,if I had I would've made sure he was okay .

Talking

okay so for anyone who didn't know this trip originally began as a riley n grandma trip,however because of certain reasons my husband and I felt it was best that I tag along just incase but I still wanted to give them their own time aswell so we split up alot but were always in the same general area so I could be available at anytime.This will explain why most pics are just of Hailey and I except at most meals or for some of the photopass pics.Another thing i should point out is that this same week 4 of my friends from one of the forums were running the TOT 10 miler and so I had planned to meet some of them so they will be mentioned in this TR as they come I call them my "magic ladies".
Anyway with me n my girls we have always had a tradition that we go to Dinoland and get slushies and popcorn so H and I set off in that direction......





only since the theme of this trip was to try new things we decided to try the cinnamon pecans and they did not disapoint







this day I was texting back and forth with one of my magic ladies Darolyn,she was in Ak too but with Hailey it can be very difficult to plan things sometimes because she has difficulty waiting or staying still and especially in the sun,it causes major meltdowns or sometimes in the heat she has seizures.(we're still trying to find out all the causes of these seizures,it's been a very lengthy process)anyway unfortunately we didn't get to meet her that day.Hailey saw alot of things she wanted to buy with her "duffy money"(thats spending money in her terms) but she decided to get her face painted first.

so heres the before shot....



she chose the unicorn style( no surprise to some who know how much she loves my little pony)





and the big reveal.....



as you can see she loved it,I did too!! so TAAAAADAAAAAAA!!!!

i should also mention that I don't typically allow my kids to be in public with socks n crocs,infact i shutter at the thought of it ,however these were new cheap walmart ones and they were giving her a blister so i allowed it for this trip.

anyway I had dressed her in her lilo costume in hopes of going to see Lilo but sadly she is no longer doing meet n greets in Ak we miss u lilo,one of the cm's we saw was so sad because he said they had a lot of fun when lilo was there n that he really missed her too.
So we went on to go see my fave munks.....







then I noticed there was no line for Donald,how in the heck not?I love that darn duck!!!



and while we were doing that here are some photo pass pics of what gma n riley were up to......








we saw guitar dan but didnt go get a song from him because we figured we'd let others do it who hadn't before If anyone hasnt seen our vid from him let me know and i'll send you the link if you like.I had hoped to see thumper and Miss bunny but they were nowhere to be found,for some reason there seemed to be a character shortage on this trip or maybe from being sick n drugged i just wasn't noticing.by this time haileys grass skirt was sticking to her in the heat and getting itchy so we put her outfit back on instead and went to do our other AK tradition which is to ride triceratop spin(now i'm not sure why but on this trip we made a habit of running all over from one of a park to the other,quite a bit)

Checking out your TR - loving all the pics so far I also LOVE your daughters outfits; I probably just missed this but did you make them? We had dinner at 1900 Park Fare as well as especially loved the stepsisters and Lady Tremaine - they were SO in character.

I didn't make the dresses a friend of my mom did,anfd if i can offer any advice to anyone wishing to do the same I'd say buy the fabric at walmart rather than jo-ann's because if i would've done that i would've saved so much money!!!!
