Oh Caitlin - no wonder you felt sick! You really had a lot on your mine - wrapping up school, traveling, and meeting up with your future DH. So glad you were starting to feel better. I hope you continue to feel better! Something tells me, maybe not. But I guess I'll just have to wait and see!

Your drama is giving ME a stomach ache with anxiety for you!

Your grandpa sounds a bit like my dad - parking in the farthest lot; I hope his forgetting his phone isn't cause for MORE drama.

Dawn: I love that you play "mom" to Dale! I have to do the very same thing!!!

We love T-Rex and eat there a lot but I never realized the thing above the bar moves occasionally!! I have tons of pictures of it but we always sit in the jungle room (that's what we call it anyway)!

Caitlin: Sorry that you were not feeling well! I have a feeling this TR is about to get really interesting...as if it weren't already very interesting!

At first I was like "did that just move?!" If I were a drinker it would probably have freaked me out

Yep,the drama is nowhere near over

Magic Kingdom Morning


Caitlin's last post told of her morning spent travelling to Disney.

Meanwhile back at Disney.....

Dale and I woke up very early to sound of a cell phone going off. When we checked the phone it was a text from Caitlin saying she and my dad were headed to the airport. We assumed she must be feeling better and hoped all would be fine.

We got up and got ready as we had a 7:30 adr at Old Key West.





As you can tell from the picture it was a hot,humid and hazy morning.



For those of you unfamiliar with OKW it is a DVC resort and has a really cute restaurant called "Olivia's". It looks like the kind of place Hemmingway would have hung out in.



As you can see an adr wasn't really necessary as we had the place practically to ourselves.




I ordered the "olivia's breakfast"


Dale went with

(pork chop and eggs)

We both enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere. An added perk of dining here is they give a 10% discount to Disney Visa and Debit card holders

When we finished eating we got in the car and headed to the Magic Kingdom. We should have parked at the TTC but instead we were bad Instead of parking at the TTC we drove to the Contemporary and told the guard we were dining at The Wave. I know, shame on us! I'm not sure he really believed us as he sent us to a remote area of the lot but we parked and walked over to the park.

We entered the park and strolled past the Halloween decorations


and headed down Main Street, toward


(honestly, does that sight ever get old?!)

We passed this


on our way here


We were able to walk onto Peter Pan which is on my all time favorites list.

We then headed over to another classic attraction which we both love! Again we walked on!



We were even able to grab a pic of the bride



When we left the HM it was time to take a cruise through the jungle






After the educational cruise, we saw the backside of water!, we ran into everyone's favorite duck!



We noticed that the Liberty Tree Tavern was decked out for the season too!




We then decided to try and head over to the New Fantasyland area and see how the plans were coming along. We caught this glimpse of Beast's castle.

\


(we are so excited to dine here in May!)



Continued next post!

As we headed over to visit the 100 Acre Wood we got a text saying Caitlin and my dad had landed! What a relief!








After Pooh we went over and rode Dumbo. Now if you have followed us before you know I get motion sickness. I cannot do roller coasters, anything that feels like flying (yes Soarin I mean you) or things that go in circles. Despite my limitations I decided to ride Dumbo with Dale since he said he had never ridden it.





It ended up being a stupid decision as I had a headache and felt dizzy afterward

When we got off the ride we decided to start heading out of the park and back to the resort so we could see my dad and Caitlin when they arrived.

When we passed the candy store we heard it calling our names so we felt obligated to step inside





Of course we couldn't leave empty handed! So Dale got a smore while I chose a strawberry. YUM!!



We ate our snacks and then said "good bye" to the Magic Kingdom


We walked to the CR and got the car and drove back to SSR to see Caitlin and grandpa!


Up next...the Princess is finally at Disney!
