Oh my goodness, Brynn looks so cute when she is getting transformed into a mermaid. I seriously LOVE the makeup they do for the mermaid. It’s probably really sad that I want to go to Pirate’s League but sadly, I am too old for it.

Julia looks so pretty! I love all of the sparkles.

The pictures Brandon took for the photo shoot are just incredible. The ones of Brynn are so cute, especially the ones where she is “swimming.”

I just love the girls faces on the Barnstormer! Julia looks so excited.

I love the makeovers. I hadn't seen the mermaid but I love it and love that Brynn got totally into character. Those pics are awesome.

First of all, Title Shout out! Highly Inappropriate! Secondly, I adore how committed both girls were to their roles. The photo shoot DH did was so much better than anything the Disney photographers could have captured. That was some serious memory making. Personally, I would be delighted to see a little mermaid "swimming" her way through Fantasyland. Imagination is what Disney is all about. Perfect!

The transformations seem to fit the girls perfectly! Julia really has spunks and attitude as a little pirate and Brynn looks so ethereal as a mermaid. Love it! In fact, don't say it too loud, but I think I prefer the mermaid make-over to the princess one. Shhh!

I have to agree with you. Those barnstormer pictures are totally commercial-worthy and should be used on the Disney website!

Wow!!!! The pictures are just amazing!!! It makes me just want to be there. Pirate's League was a winner...we loved it on our trip! I love how they totally immerse you in everything pirate-y. The Barnstomer looks like fun! I love how the picture captured the emotions and feelings. And I agree....they TOTALLY should use that pic for their new ads!
This is the day that the Lord has made, I WILL rejoice and be glad in it!

The pictures he took are amazing and so are yours Kudos to you. The girls look they are having a great time! You have two special characters there, this will be a special memory for years to come.The mermaid make up was great. I like the way they did used it around the eyes.

I'm subscribing! I know I am going to love your TR because I am obsessed with pictures (I'm the one behind the camera in our family, though) and we too spent hundreds on a shiny new video camera so that I could make an amazing vacation video. I have hours of video, but no editing done yet (and we went in May this year..oops). Are you editing the videos yourself or is dh doing it? What editing software are you/he using?

Anyway, the kids are adorable! I love your family's coordinating attire (we do that too..or is it everyone at WDW that does matchy matchy outfits? ). Oh and the annoying smoking men at the MK entrance..I had to laugh, because when I saw their backs in the Ferry sign, I was kind of like "Hmm..." Something was just 'off' about them in that picture to me, and then lo & behold they are smoking in a non designated area! UGH! I don't hate on smokers either, but just keep it in its place!

I'm reading!

This is such a great TR! Your pictures are amazing. Definitely borrowing a fancier camera from my family for my upcoming trip! The pictures on the Barnstormer are definitely disney website worthy.

I wasn't crazy about Pirate's League from what I'd heard, mostly because it seemed like BBB had all the magic. But after reading that update, I wish I wasn't too old to participate! By the way, the girls had those pirate/mermaid poses down!

Can't wait for more!

A September 2013 trip is a very real possibility at this point!

I love this update. The Pirates League looks like tons of fun, and I LOVE that Brynn stayed in character the entire time. It's a shame the "wench" wasn't too friendly, but I'm glad the makeover artists were better.

Yay for the first ride of the trip! Those are some great pictures.

Fantastic Pirates League photos! Brandon is a very talented guy.

I'm so glad that the girls loved it. Maddie is beginning to think that pirates are okay (and you're right-it's because of Jake), but I don't think she'll ever actually jump sides. They do an amazing job with the makeup there-I love the detail on Brynn's mermaid makeup.

Great Barnstormer pics! That's Maddie's new favorite ride. Poor you- I think I may have bought a new shirt. I'm very sensitive to smells and a little crazy, so I'd have been smelling that little souvenir all day.

What an amazing first few hours!!

I'm sorry that wench was such a wench, as if no other kids decide they need a page to write their names? I love that they stayed in character all day, their pics were priceless. That really is a lot of make up, but I guess they need to make sure it stays on. At least the face pain doesn't seem so...grown up.

Last time we went we brought a pack of diapers, which all leaked. I don't know why I didn't go buy a new pack, I think I thought of it the last day. Anyway, I walked around covered in pee most days. I assumed people would think I was wet from a ride or spilled my drink. At least I hoped so!! So I feel ya, been there (and I'd imagine most moms have as well).
