Don't worry Dan -- Candi will never ask Parker to "pull her finger", so you'll end up being his favorite someday.

Nice updates! I like the picture with Donald...it's neat that you can see the mill through the trees behind you. And of course, the pictures with Tink and her sister were great! Very cute.

I hope that Parker gets another shot on Splash Mountain, so that he can try the drop with his eyes open.

Parker is very brave to go on Splash Mountain at such a young age. He is much braver than I was as a kid.

How great that Parker was brave enough to go on Splash Mountain! I hope my DS enjoys it as much as I do so he can be my ride buddy and DH can sit out since he doesn't like getting wet.

I could have sworn I responded to this.

I am just loving Noelle in her Tink outfit....too stinking cute.

And way to go Parker on conquering Splash Mountain.

Happy New Year to your beautiful family....so glad I got to meet all of you this year.

Happy New Year! Love the update. Parker's bedtime story is as classic little boy story for sure! I love the pics of Noelle's meet up with Tink - just precious. And Parker charming the sis is adorable. Great interaction. Score on the FP entry. How can they enforce if you get stuck in a line somewhere?

Wow! Parker was a big boy on Splash! So proud of him love all the expression shots!

Great report! I was so glad you got him on Splash Mountain. I'll be watching for your next updates!

I hadn't seen many photos of the new Dumbo yet, so that was awesome.

I am really enjoying your TR! I'm only up to the second day, but its been great. I especially love the pp pics of the kids with Woody and Buzz!

I also love the AoA pictures. Such an amazing resort!

That would actually be an improvement on the ride.

He looks at us and the little tink I am holding then at parker and says okay go ahead. little cute kid pixie dust works.
The trainee was then fired on the spot.

Sneaky, dad. Very sneaky.

Oh, just that it's a water ride, and there are boats, and you might die, and you can get your picture taken at the end.

Such great character interactions, those are so awesome!! And how wicked that Parker liked Splash! It's always interesting to watch smaller kids on the big rides, sometimes they're so excited, but by the end are all "never again" and sometimes just love it, it's pretty great to witness hahah!

How much later than your FP time were you? I am surprised they were on the fence about letting you ride.

I had to laugh out loud about the whole "What does that sign say?" conversation with Parker. It reminds me of the same thing with my Little Guy. Now he is learning to read, so that is getting harder to do! Haha!
we were happy to find that dress candi got it 2 days before left from a lady who was selling to so a bonus "princess" dress for the trip.

it was about 7 minutes later than the window said. i could see like an hour or half hour but less than ten minutes im glad he let us in. otherwise we would have had one very upset little boy.

yep getting to the age when he wants to know what everything is so sometimes you have to be creative and not give all the info...otherwise i think we would have been walking back out of the line.

Glad they let you all on Peter pan.


We took Trent on Splash once and he hated it. He didn't cry. he just hated the way it made his stomach feel. He said he go on it again when he is 20
the are is pretty neat, i just hope they do move them over to a new spot when the finish up the fantasyland. the rest of the line just seems temporary and not that well done, besides the movie window of course.

her expression is priceless when shes noelle thats for sure. glad i got that shot.

wonder if he would go on it next trip...it took us barely getting him on a log ride locally here to i think get him pumped up to ride it.

I love all your photopass pictures too. I'm actually considering it for my trip. It'll be me and my sister, and I'm usually the photographer so it seems like a good way to get some nice pictures of both of us!

Anyways, can't wait to hear more!
glad you are enjoying it...

we had a blast, hope you enjoy the resort i think you will.

the photopass is pricey but well worth it in my opinion they do get some good shots, but you just have to make the effort to stop and take them. i like how they get some i dont get when meeting the characters which is the main reason that we get it.

And tell Parker he did a great job on Splash Mountain. Such a brave boy!!!

But he didn't get nearly wet enough to have truly enjoyed it......
marv? do my eyes really see this?

thanks for the reply. she does that all the time, even with people we know sometimes she will run and hide from family.

he is a brave boy thats for sure proud of him....his side got a little spray but not much at all.

That's amazing that Parker went on Splash!

Great updates all round! Parker is sooo big! I remember when you called? texted? that he was born. OY. I feel old.

Y'all look great!
yep all boy thats for sure.

i remember it as well sitting next to the maternity bed when i called you about it.

Too funny you could not see him in the picture.

You seemed to get sprayed and kept Parker from getting wet.

It is not the drop but the water cannons that will soak you ..... I know.

Glad both kids liked IASW and PP.
she did good with her, and i bet it will be a ton of fun when she gets old enough to talkt to them.

those cannons are a beast that will soak you your right on that, glad it missed our boat this time.
