oh gosh....Alex is really good at the throw yourself on the ground melt downs or relaxing his arms so much when we pick him up that it's almost impossible to pick him up. He normally only does that when we are at home though. Hopefully it will stay that way. Bummer on that afternoon nap. At least he isn't sick! IDK what a normal trip with a kid is like yet so as long as A isn't sick I think that will be much easier than what we had last time. I can handle melt downs LOL

When I go down in December, I will try and knock out all the rides I want to do, so we will be going nice and slow for the boys on our December trip. Your breast feeding schedule turned out great, I mean I wish Jordan will feed only four times, we are down to six to eight BF's a day. I am worried about the humidity for September but no cranky baby yet, she looks so precious and busy taking everything in.....

What a wonderful first morning! I know that you were disappointed about the change in EMH, but you still managed to get some GREAT shots on a nearly empty main street and that is awesome!

I love the photos of Aria with the characters, babies and characters are so sweet!

Pirates! What an excellent first ride choice! That was Everett's first ride as well, maybe we'll do the same for (still-nameless) new baby.

I totally understand what you mean about not feeling productive when touring with a little one. I think that has taken the most getting use to. I swear I could take a three week vacation with DS, and still not get as much done as I used to do on a solo weekend!

Awesome that you were able to get some pool time in, looks like everyone had fun!

I really love the picture of the two of you walking towards the castle. That's definitely a framer!
HAHAHA so I guess I shouldn't have been too upset with our pace then! It wasn't THAT bad, but I just felt like we were doing a lot of running around, especially during the 40 minutes or so of naptime she took. And during that time I rode Space mountain, waited for Andrew to ride, ran across the park to get rider swap, and then she woke up and went to the BCC to feed her, so it was about an hour I really didn't get to do anything except walk around.

Aria really WAS great. I am nervous for when she gets older after reading about these 2 year olds' trips!!

Isn't that cute! Of course, Aria's not actually walking yet, but standing up

I have felt that way before now that we are taking DS, yet we always manage to do everything or most everything we set out to do. Where on previous trips, we would do our favorites multiple times over the trip, we have learned now that even if we only get to do it once, that's a success!!

I'm glad Aria was such a good traveler for you. We are learning so far this week that a trip with a 1 year old is VASTLY different from a trip with a 2 year old!!!!
Aw thanks for stopping by while on vacation! I need to get caught up too! Hopefully today! But I need to get some actual work done first. I hope the birthday cake is DELICIOUS! HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAXTON!! Hope it's an amazing day and taco night is fun!

Yep, that is so true! We eventually do get done the things we wanted to do, but just about once a piece (such as Jungle Cruise). It's crazy - we were there for 10 nights, and that is seriously not enough time! Ugh!

Your foreshadowing is freaking me out! I hope you're still having an amazing time!

Looking forward to reading more
LOL! That is so funny! I looked out for you around the park too. So sad knowing we were there and never met up! Boo!

What was funny was that I didn't even really care about riding the big rides, I was more excited about going on as much as I could with Aria, but her needing to nap and such pretty soon after we got into the parks made that a little difficult. And it didn't help that all Andrew wanted to do WAS ride the bigger rides, which was pretty annoying. I bet you'll knock one of those nursing times off. There is SO much for them to look at and enjoy that being hungry rarely crossed her mind. Also, we added in lunch for her (about 3 oz of veggies or veg/fruit mix and puffs) which helped, AND increased her breakfast from 1 oz fruit to 3, and dinner from 2 oz to 3-4 plus puffs. She has been able to stick to that schedule happily since returning home, and I love that she has finally dropped that 3rd nap in the late afternoon, since when we pick her up from daycare she is awake the rest of the afternoon/evening until bedtime whereas before we had to put her down for a nap immediately.

HI! I can't wait to read more from your TR! Yeah that first CM was annoying but luckily I tried my luck with the 2nd one and he let us in. I was so happy to get some great shots! This was probably our "worst" character interaction, because from here they just get better and better!

OOH I didn't realize that about Everett's first ride. I know I lurked on your earlier TR's but forgot that! How awesome! What did he think?

Yep, ditto on the 3 week vacation! I mean, we did a lot of different things, like the character meets, but rarely fit in shopping or many of the rides and such.

Pool time was wonderful! So happy we snuck that time in there! It was very refreshing. The pool itself wasn't amazing (I like the BC pool and AK pool much better) but it was still nice and water temp was MUCH better than our condos...

Day 2 continued!

After pool time, it was about 4 and we had to head back up and give Aria a quick bath before getting a 3rd nap in. Bathtime was fun, but she was NOT having a nap or any part of it, so Andrew actually walked her around in the stroller and she finally went down around 4:45, just in time for KNO to come (sigh). Right at 5 there was a knock and a small older woman (maybe 65?) was at the door. She showed us her credentials and we immediately gave her a small “schedule” which included: bottle around 5:15, warmed it hot sink water, not the microwave, play time until dinner of a squeeze packet thingy around 6:15, and nighttime bottle around 7:15 and then bedtime by 7:30. We told her we were going to be stopping in around 7 quickly to change – our plan was to hop over to the MK for about 1.5 hours and then come back to get changed for dinner at CG. She asked a few questions and then around 5:15 we woke up Aria so she could meet her. Well, she was just NOT happy (TMI: she also hadn’t pooped since Thursday morning – prob just due to the travel timing and all that) and I have never EVER seen her so upset. She kept crawling over to me and wanted nothing to do with her. We eventually just had to leave, and she seemed OK with playing on the floor with some toys, and her bottle was warmed waiting for us to go. I felt awful but we’ve never had an issue leaving her anywhere so I figured that she would settle down quickly and have her bottle and be much happier soon.

Remember how I said it eventually rained? Well, after getting out of the pool, it was absolutely down pouring outside, so we had come up with a contingency plan if MK wasn’t a go – we were thinking of bar hopping on the monorail hahaha! But by the time we left our room it was just a little drizzle, so we decided to stick with our original plan and head to the MK to ride some rides minus the stroller and Aria – first stop was the Haunted Mansion which was a quick walk on and we enjoyed checking out the new queue briefly. (Side note – having an umbrella was SO nice!)



We were both impressed by everything there!


We decided against splash as Andrew didn’t want to get his pants wet(TER) and I didn’t want to get my hair gross, so instead we rode big thunder together with about a 5 minute wait.




Ahh I just LOVE this ride! So much fun, and I can’t wait for Aria to experience it. Honestly I think she would love it if she were allowed to ride it. She cracks up with the wind through her hair like that!


It started to brighten a little!


This was a MNSSHP night so we were going to be kicked out at 7, and it was after 6:30, so we picked something pretty close to ride – PotC! Hard to tell, but I got myself some pirate mickey ears and Andrew got himself a set of keys for his Jack Sparrow costume as well as a pirates mug. First purchases of the trip! We headed out of the MK through the shops and I spotted a stuffed Belle that I picked up for Aria.


We popped back into the room. We did listen at the door (who wouldn’t…right?!) and all was quiet inside which was a good sign, and then went inside. Aria burst into tears at the sight of us and I just felt awful. I knew we had made things difficult for her (I can’t for the life of me remember the KNO lady’s name! ugh!). We quickly changed, and I helped her get her bottle ready (this is when I got worried about our baby sitter and not just Aria’s temperament) - she didn’t know how to use a Dr. Brown’s bottle and had just put the nipple haphazardly on the medela storage bottle, despite me preparing the bottles beforehand. I also noticed Aria was already in her PJs that I had laid out, but she had put them on OVER her clothes. When I mentioned that I’d like for her to change her just into her jammies, she stated she thought the mid-70’s room was too cold. Umm nope, she will be fine…and out the door for us again!

It was a nice leisurely walk back to the Contemporary, down the escalators and to the check in podium. We checked in, went up in the elevator and were debating whether to take a seat at the bar when our name was called! It seemed very quiet and empty inside, despite being 7:30 on a Friday evening. Weird! We got an awesome window table with confetti on it for my birthday – very sweet, and the evening started off great! Andrew suggested ordering a bottle of wine, but wanted to start off with a cocktail. I thought that was a bit much so I just got some wine while he had a glass of bourbon. Just to note: he did not order one Manhattan the whole trip. I ruined it by mentioning I had guessed what he would order, so he tried to be contrary at every.single.meal which was annoying!


I knew I wanted the goat cheese ravioli, but did not actually see any vegetarian or chicken dish listed in the entrée section, so I decided to get that for my main dish and find another appetizer. I saw one that mentioned smoked salmon, so decided to be adventurous and go for that. BAD BAD BAD choice. I’m still reeling at how gross it was. Now, I like capers, but did not see ANYTHING about caviar on the menu, if I had I would not have even considered it. Also, this salmon was basically uncooked, not smoked. Coming from Seattle, I have actually enjoyed a little smoked salmon here and there, and it has a much more COOKED texture and a smoky flavor. This tasted like filleted uncooked salmon with gritty caviar on top. EW. Andrew thought it was disgusting as well. I had 2 pieces just to give it a chance, and then I couldn’t fathom eating another bite. I didn’t say anything to our waiter, as for all I know, this is actually how smoked salmon was supposed to be served, and I could have missed the caviar mention.


Andrew did get mussels – score 1 for me (I guessed he would get these)


My main dish – the server had asked if I wanted 2 raviolis if I was getting it for a main dish. I agreed. Yes, I was charged double ($28!!). The sauce was way too runny and flavorless. It tasted nothing like I remember. The ravioli itself was good, but the sauce (or lack thereof) ruined it.


Andrew was different and got a pork tenderloin (I think) and it came with mashed cauliflower. That could have been another title of this TR – regarding the huge inundation of cauliflower on every single menu we saw. It was ridiculous! And he was not impressed. Meat was OK but cauliflower was tasteless. Boo! At least his mussels had been good!


At this point, it was finally the opportunity for my surprise birthday cake that Andrew had spent all that time over the phone with Disney Florist planning out. Oh wait – what birthday cake? Just the one I had dropped about 1001 hints about including showing him pictures of one a friend’s husband ordered for her for their anniversary just a couple weeks before. Well, that moment came and went and no birthday cake for me. I know it is totally not necessary, but it would have been nice of him to spend 5 minutes planning something for the trip…

So instead I Ordered 2 desserts HA. Chocolate and banana.


YUM both delicious! Loved the chocolate a bit more than the banana, but both were delish and yes I did have to share a teeny bit with Andrew.


At this point it was 9:15 and for some reason we had it in our heads that we would rather watch HalloWishes from the TotWL than CG. Looking back, we should have just stayed put in our awesome seats and watched it there, I have no idea what was driving us to get back up to the TotWL other than the fact that it was the only night we’d get to watch them from there until we stay at BLT again. One last picture:


Then we hightailed it out of there! This dinner cost us over $200 and was very disappointing overall. Especially for all the praise I have ALWAYS given it. I guess it really is time for a refurb, CG. TiW saved us nearly $40 though. Side note: a family of around 12 people was seated right next to us, with 3 kids that were running around in circles, and a 12 or 13 year old boy crying in the corner. Super annoying, and we of course gave each other “that’ll NEVER be us” looks. Hehe we’ll see in 10 years ;-)

Somehow we paid, took the elevator to the 4th floor, ran across the Contemporary, ran across the sky bridge, took the elevator down to the 1st floor, ran over to the check in podium, showed our KTTW cards, and got the elevator back up to the 16th( I think?) floor and made it with about 4 minutes to spare. I didn’t get great pictures, but this was our view:




Hallowishes was really fun but we were ready to see our little baby girl so we headed downstairs. KNO Babysitter said she wouldn’t take her bottle at all until after 8PM and was asleep a little after 8:30…ugh… we gave her a tip and then she left. Aria did not wake up during the commotion so she must have been exhausted. We were told she ate her dinner fine, but I saw the full (opened) dinner left out, so she had barely had a bite of it. Overall, I was not thrilled with KNO. It didn’t help that Aria was upset, but it just didn’t seem like the babysitter had any experience recently with young kids. She hadn’t ever seen a squeeze food packet, a Dr. Brown’s bottle, she kept on her clothes under Aria’s PJ’s, didn’t give her dinner, didn’t get her down til way later than she ever stays up, etc. She also was supposed to come with age-appropriate toys. She brought a book and that was all, and mentioned turning on the TV for Aria to watch despite us only really turning on the TV to mickey mouse clubhouse on Saturday afternoons, not as entertainment in the evenings.

Not a warm fuzzy feeling and not the best dinner, but still a wonderful birthday. So glad I chose MK for that first park day and my birthday park day!

Some things we didn’t get to do today that I had wanted to: Jungle Cruise, Splash, Tom Sawyer Paintbrushes which are supposedly extinct but I never had the opportunity to see for myself.

Gosh, I'm glad your birthday dinner didn't go as expected. I wouldn't have been happy with KNO either. Who puts jammies on OVER clothes, that is really bizarre! It also must have been really tough to have Aria upset when you left her.

The one thing I don't like about eating out at Disney is how darn mercurial it is! Usually Cali grill is a homerun, but everyone once and a while you get an off night. I'm sorry that off night fell on your birthday! I really wish Disney restaurants were more consistent, that way you'd know what you were getting into when you made the ADR.

I also can completely sympathize with your birthday cake dilemma. My DH is the same way, completely clueless when it comes to special surprises. We were at Disney for my 30th birthday too, and if it makes you feel any better, I ordered my own birthday cake. I did feel a little lame calling up and ordering a cake for myself, but I wanted that cake, darn it, and I wasn't about to leave it up to chance.

Boo for the night out issues! You know I'm there with you! I know it's slightly different, but the emotions you feel for the little one is totally the same! But, I'm glad your overall birthday-day was good!

Ok you've convinced me to never give California Grill a try! I'm glad we stayed away from it this trip. Sorry you didn't have a great birthday meal

I feel like Disney has a problem with hiring employees that don't exactly know what they're doing. Some of the CMs I speak to on the phone....really? Maybe it's because of cutbacks I don't know but the service is starting to slip a bit. Sorry you had issues with KNO. Double

But you still had a great birthday overall. You were in Disney World at MK! What could be better??

Yeah it's one thing if we asked a friend or sister or something to watch Aria - then I could understand not really knowing the ins and outs (such as keeping clothes on under PJs...though that is really weird) or knowing the Dr. Brown's bottles. But for someone who supposedly does this for a living, it's ridiculous. When I told KNO about her, they said it was all very strange because she usually gets glowing reviews. So IDK what to think. I tried stepping back and thinking about everything after a couple days and I was still upset about the whole thing so didn't think I was being overly ridiculous.

It didn't help that I made a poor app choice. But yes I've never had a bad meal there, and will definitely be going back after the refurb, but it did make for a disappointing birthday meal for sure!

I thought about ordering my own birthday cake, but I honestly thought I dropped enough hints for Andrew for him to actually do it. Guess not.

Yep! It was so hard leaving her like that. I am glad that she wasn't crying when we listened in for a minute before entering the room - that was something! The day WAS great, MK was a lot of fun, though I still want to smack my DH for being so irritating all trip.

LOL! Sorry I didn't mean to do that. Hopefully you will give it a try after the refurb. I've given it glowing reviews every single other time I've eaten there.

Are you referring to the idiota at the early breakfast line?! YEP she was so so annoying. Did you get in the early breakfast line that morning or go in with regular crowds?

I did have a good birthday. I wish I had worn my birthday button longer than a couple hours that morning, but Aria loved pulling on it every time I held her and it was ripping my shirt so I took it off and never put it back on, so I didn't get the same "happy birthday from everyone" experience as I've had for past trips. Not a big deal of course, but it does make it fun!

Well you definitely do have to take a slower pace with a baby so I think you guys did great seeing what you wanted to and doing the things you wanted to.

Haha two year olds are a totally different ball game. A different challenge but you will figure it out just like we are

Oh yeah I didn't think she was just thought the picture was cute

haha! Aww thank you Yes I think we will be staying away from everyone just before our trip and I'm going to be cleaning everything Alex comes into contact with. He's even getting his flu shot next week.

ugh so sorry the KNO lady didn't work out well. I've never even considered hiring them because Alex would be miserable the whole time. He's insanely shy so if we tried to leave him with a stranger in a strange place he'd go nuts! I'm now wondering how Alex will do with pooping while we are at WDW. He usually doesn't go unless he's in somewhere he's comfortable so hopefully he will at least feel comfortable enough to do it in our hotel room. Blah! Sorry dinner wasn't all that great either and expensive to boot. That happened when we went to the old steak house that used to be at the Contemporary on my birthday in 2007. The meal absolutely sucked and would have been so expensive if we hadn't of been on FD. I'm glad the day was mostly good though. I guess it can't all be wonderful and magical, huh?

We got there a little after 8 so we went in with the regular crowds. I just feel like some of the CMs don't know Disney AT ALL. Even our reps give us wrong information like when she told us the Little Mermaid section wouldn't be open until 2013...when it was already open. Then I wonder why I don't have a job there!

Wow so KNO didn't work out, dr.brown completely stumps the older generation, my mom bless her was 59 when we left her with Nicholas and she forgot the piece so, the milk spilled out, I love dr.brown but after awhile we decided it has too many parts to clean. we switch nic to avent and he never got colicky or gasses and they were easier to clean. I am glad you did have fun with your husband and even though you didn't enjoy the dinner, you looked like you were enjoying the alone time in your pics. Poor baby aria, I am trying to get baby Jordan use to leaving him with his grandma but he always throws a fit, he usually calms down and is happy to see us when we come back. Can't wait to hear more keep it coming.

Sorry KNO didn't work out. It's already so hard to leave your baby with a stranger, but then when it doesn't go well, it makes it even worse. I struggled so much with whether or not we should do something like that when we wanted to attend the AP event in DL, and reading this, I'm glad we decided to just go different nights. It sounds like you are just like me when it comes to our kids...particular about the way things are done and schedule oriented!! I worry leaving Paxton with anyone, my parents included, that they are just not going to do things the way we do and that drives me nuts! Hopefully the later bedtime didn't affect Aria's mood the next day.

I'm really enjoying reading your trip report. The amount of photos you include is great. Sorry that your night out didn't go as well as planned.
