After the Pirates ride, we headed to MY favorite ride~~~Big Thunder Mountain Railroad!!!!!

We were hoping that the twins would love this ride as much as the rest of us......we told Shy that this would be a fast choo choo.

























WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE...........















We got off the ride and saw a duck.......









SUCCESS!!! Both of the girls liked the "fast choo choo"!!!! We will be back!!

At this point, Derek lets me know that he has plans in the afternoon with Ally and her family. We had the BBQ planned for 5pm so I called Disney Dining to change nights.....since this was a place Derek really wanted to go to. So I changed it to Wednesday night and we'll find somewhere else to eat that night. We said our goodbyes to the cute couple and headed off towards the Big Thunder Ranch area.

The plan was to check out the Jingle Jangle Jamboree, but first we stopped off to do a photopass picture at the sleigh just outside the entrance. Here are a few pics as we waited our turn.













When we got the twins out of the strollers, we realized they both were a tad damp....so change of plans~~time to find dry pants for the girls, so we headed into Fantasyland and into the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. As I went in to find something, the guys stayed out and took these pictures.





















We headed to the first aid office to use one of their rooms to change the girls and then tube feed Michayla.

Loving all the photos. The photos on the Pooh ride look awesome. Love the bright colours!

Glad to hear that the girls enjoyed BTMR! It's good that they had fun and were able to enjoy some rides! Did they do Haunted Mansion too?

Lots of bright colors and black lights if I recall. Did you get on it during your trip?? It's a cute ride and I'll ride it with our without kids!! lol

Yes they did the Haunted Mansion with us.....that was the first ride after the round trip on the train. I'm not sure what they thought.....they didn't fuss and they looked around at the stuff.....but both girls tend to be very "monotone" in expressions, so it's hard to know if they liked it or didn't. They were the same way with the speed boat at camp during the summer. Shy barely reacted, but Michayla was smiling a little at the end of the ride.

I'm not sure what the deal was with Photobucket yesterday.....I'm hoping today goes better!

Critter Country is my favorite little spot when it comes to characters in the park. Not only do you see the Winnie the Pooh characters, but also Brer Bear and Brer Fox makes appearances.

We were thrilled the girls liked BTMRR!! I know they both like wind in their face......so that helped!! Shy also asked about the fast choo choo a lot during our trip....so we know she really liked it!! In fact, she still talks about it and asks to ride the fast choo choo. Hard to explain it's really far away and we can't.

After getting the twins changed and Michayla fed....we headed back to the Jingle Jangle Jamboree to check it out and maybe catch Billy Hill and the Hillbillies!!

These are some pics from around the stage area, where Billy Hill now performs:







Shy was dancing (rocks side to side) to the music piped in:



Pictures from around the large area back behind the petting zoo area......I had no idea this was even back there!! Was this usually behind a fence/gate???









Isn't this a great picture of Mrs Claus??? She's stunning!!



Shy stretching her legs..........



Guess who came out to greet Addy & Shyann.......Minnie!!







Anthony decided to get in the picture too!



They had different areas for some Tasty Treats (more on that next post)



Cookie Decorating and Reindeer Games.





More random pics:













Tyler and Shy waiting for the show to begin.



Michayla happy listening to the music.

So let's go back to the "Tasty Treats"!! Here's a menu board of what they had to offer back in the Jamboree area.



So we tried the Monte Cristo Bites......I forgot to take a picture of them in the bag they're served in......so they had a display plate out so here's the pic of that:



They actually were pretty good! Crisp, hot and just the right size. The full sandwich served at Cafe Orleans and Blue Bayou (lunch only) is just TOO much. Too big, too rich, etc. These were the perfect for a small lunch/snack.

While we finished our lunch and waited for the show....we took more pics from around the jamboree area. Mike did more area pics where I focused in more on the details.







This is from the Reindeer Games section:















Santa set up a nice little place to greet visitors:



I'm just not sure we actually got a picture of his "area".......partly because there were always people and I don't like purposely taking pictures of other people/strangers.

More from the Jamboree:





While I was taking pictures......Goofy showed up, so I got a picture done with him!



Back to taking pictures......











Is this Agent P??



They had an area for Holiday Crafts too:



The Candy Cane Cotton Candy.........and YES!!, we had to try this too!!!



It was good but poor Shy didn't understand what she was supposed to do with it, so she smashed the piece she had in her hands and wiped her hands together.....getting rid of most of the treat. (and boy did she get sticky!!)

A little love from the Billy's.



Coming off the stage to greet guests!!!!








Posing with Liver Lips:







Posing with Big Al and Liver Lips decided to join in!

After getting some "Bear" hugs at the Jamboree, we made our way back out beside the Big Thunder BBQ area and took pictures as we passed by. So themed for this area and festive....I love how Disney is so detail oriented!

Great update

That Mrs. Claus was beautiful

Love the Santa area and all the goodies. That cotton candy looked good. Was it?

Looks like a fun show with the hillbillies

I loved all the bear pics, especially Liver Lips

Thanx Kelly!!! Nice to know I have a couple followers........unless people are following along and being quiet...... Feel free to join in on the conversations!!

Mrs Claus really was beautiful!! She was there last year too!

The candy cane cotton candy was good!! Of course I'm a fan of peppermint and it wasn't OVERLY minted.....so a nice balance!

I make sure to see the hillbillies every trip. The lead Billy is very good....not as big a fan of the other one (who may just fill in on this guys days off)......so far I've been pretty lucky in seeing this one. A very good showman!!

I loved that they brought out the bears. Not a very attractive group, but funny!!!

I'm following too!

I love all of the pictures and details! Your reports are so fun! I always feel when I write mine that I'm the only one out there, but it's fun anyway!

Your girls did so well on this trip - it seems they've really started getting into the Disney Magic.

Can't wait to read more...

After leaving the Big Thunder Ranch area, we headed into Fantasyland and decided to take Shyann on another train~~Casey Jr. Here are a few pictures as we waited for our turn.













Shy and Tyler rode on the caboose facing backwards.....so all the pictures were done by Ty. He said it was hard to take pics because you didn't know what was coming.....lol
