Boy, I am about 5 posts behind. Great pictures with the characters. I just love seeing the kids expressions. It makes me really excited to take the little one next year. The breakfast looked yummy. I really want to have some chocolate chip pancakes now. Blizzard Beach looks like fun. We are going to have give it a try in the future.

Blizzard Beach looks like so much fun! My daughter wants to try Typhoon Lagoon on our next trip in September so we are definitely looking forward to visiting a Disney Water Park.

Sounds like my kinda day! Blizzard Beach was a lot of fun. I'm not sure which water park I like better. They're both great!

All I saw on that picture of the menu was chocolate chip pancakes. Yum!

That is one of my pet peeves......

it was a perfect moment with my little girl just being quite, since she cant talk much yet...and enjoying the peace of the lazy river (since it was still not busy)
I wanted to get those tubes for my place. So much better so the kids dont fall through.

Isn't that neat!!!

Marv, those new glasses must be great, you are racking up the eagle eye points.

Either that or I need new ones. (which I do )

I do love my some Lazy River time...especially first thing in the morning when no one else is on it. And good for you getting some daddy/daughter time together.
we did the PJ breakfast a few times, and other times went right to the pool after we ate...

she is the perfect age to play around there and have fun in that shallow water.

yep it seems no mater the time of the year as long as you get in before lunch you r good after lunch they are packed...i think everyone is sleeping off the food.

it is our favorite too. there kid areas there are ten times better than TL...we were scheduled to hit TL 2twice and BB twice, but went to BB 3 times and TL once this trip. the kids loved BB more as well.

ill tell her, i think she looks pretty good in it too.

Looks like Parker was having a blast on the slide being all independent

Looks like a great day overall

I was looking at the bathroom pic and the hidden mickey I saw was to the left of that gold thing.. It look like a blue silhouette of Mickey head

Great pics
i thought there breakfast menu was very good, everything i had there i enjoyed.

there is, we found that one the first day, this was the first time we spotted the full body hidden mickey. but good eye.

i tried to take a bunch this trip, because i know that most people never have been or if they go rarely take pictures...glad you enjoyed them. there are many more coming over the next 3 water park days.

glad you were able to find them both on your trip. wasnt that shower addicting trying to find stuff...we all took way longer showers than normal because we were trying to find something new the others missed. and we were all secretly hoping there was a third hidden mickey we missed.

the important thing is you are here now and caught back up.

your little one will have a blast seeing it all and you will love seeing it being experienced for the first time.

try making pancakes with butterscotch chips, those are awesome.

I have a TL day coming up a few days later, so if you have never been you can see a few pictures that we took. make sure you get there when they open as you can hit the entire park within the first 2 hours very easily and then go back to your favorites later.

I could totally eat that pepper jack chicken burger. Again, and again, and again. It's surprising that I don't weigh 200 pounds...and I would totally have eaten the fries for breakfast.

Looks delish.

We just finished paying for a surprise January trip for the kids to Saratoga Springs! I might actually get to hop over to AoA to try it soon!

I have to agree with you. A burger and fries for breakfast just seems odd. Not that I wouldn't eat it of course, it just seems odd.

We saw a few of those too.

Nah I was just kidding...


I honestly know of nothing you can put in the water to react if someone pees.

We use to joke they was a red dye which probably started from the phenol red we use to test teh pH of the water.

Now that darker blue patch can be from a variety of things. Usually the Florida sun will fade out vinyl or fiberglass, so that may be a crazy patch that spends more time in the shade.

Sometimes if that was patched, the color is darker and will fade unevenly.

Now that I have geeked out on what might have caused that....


I am really proud of Parker going over and over again by himself. He seems to really enjoy the water.

Looks like you had a blast at BB! Parker is grinning from ear to ear! In all my times visiting Disney World, I never found the time to go to any of the water parks. I guess I can take or leave water slides, especially when there's all the other parks to visit, and so little time...

what a fun relaxing day and that breakfast looks great! I love the pictures on your way out of BB, really fun. Catch and release

I've always worried that BB will be a bit too blinding white for me, we've only done TL but you guys sure had a great day there.

Parker is just having an absolute blast, it radiates from the pictures.

Hey Dan!

We are going to tell them Christmas morning. I'm having a puzzle made of one of our photos from Disney with the words January 2013 at the bottom. I am going to tell them that there is a clue to a special present on the puzzle so they will put it together right away!

Our daughter is 9 and she will help her brother who is 4 figure out what it means. Then I"m going to have the tickets in plastic cases in their stockings and I"m planning mickey pancakes and "jambo" juice for breakfast. They adore the juice at Boma and it will be fun to chat about our Disney plans over breakfast.

We will be there from January 19 through 26th at Saratoga springs.

In case I hadn't mentioned it before, I really appreciate you guys who are able to do trip reports! You, Marvali, Glennbo, and the others that log in to read your reports and put their links in! I've tried, but I just don't have the ability to log my trip like you guys do - but I so enjoy reading about your experiences and families. When it's a bad day at work or just plain dreary out, it's so nice to be able to log on and get a little magic and pixie dust.

Thanks.
