Is it just me, or does this prince resemble Zac Efron?

Love this show! It's so beautifully done. If they replace it with Tangled as rumored, I'm going to be incredibly disappointed.

After the show, we did a little bit of shopping, then headed back to the resort.

Saratoga Springs is such a pretty resort - huge, but pretty.

So that morning, Rachel and Max were trying to formulate a plan so that we could watch Fantasmic, but also go to ESPN Club and watch South Carolina get beat by LSU. So we decided that we needed to see the 6:30 Fantasmic, then leave DHS and head to the Boardwalk.

So after a rest at the resort, we headed back to DHS to use our FPs for Rockin' Rollercoaster.


DSC_3077 by vshingl, on Flickr

Then Toy Story Mania.


DSC_3078 by vshingl, on Flickr

Max won, again.


DSC_3080 by vshingl, on Flickr


DSC_3081 by vshingl, on Flickr

Addie and Rachel's screen was black for the last game, though. They told the CM at the attraction exit to see if they could ride again since they couldn't play the last round. The CM was kind of rude and just said, "We know. We're working on it. No, you can't ride again." Very un-Disney. And I think that this happened because they're young adults, and that if my Mom or Dad had asked, they would've let them. I don't know, I feel like at this age, we get discriminated against a lot. But it bothers me that they knew the screen was black, but they continued to load people into the attraction. That could be someone's only time riding the ride, and they leave with a bad experience - broken Disney. Yes, it would've slowed down the line to not load people into the vehicles which were on the track for the broken screen, but people aren't waitin 80+ minutes for a broken attraction. I think they needed to be issuing "return any time" FPs or something. But letting people ride a broken attraction is unacceptable.


DSC_3082 by vshingl, on Flickr

Honestly, though, I was glad that Addie and Rachel weren't allowed to ride it again for our schedule's sake - we needed to get to Fantasmic!

We got a pretty good seat for Fantasmic. We were in the Splash Zone on the fourth row. The DJs that they have entertaining before Fantasmic are pretty entertaining and make sitting in the amphitheatre not so boring.

Unfortunately, I spent the first half of the show trying to remember which camera setting I use for Fantasmic. I need to start writing these things down!

Throughout the show, Max kept telling me that he was getting wet. I finally told him that if it bothered him, he could get up and move. And of course, he got huffy with me, assuring me that he wasn't complaining - he was just letting me know that he was getting wet. Gee, thanks, Max - I thought it was just me!

OH. MY. GOSH. I freaking LOVE your costumes. Adorable! I also loved that Prince Charming was giving you guys the side eye in that one picture. Hilarious.

Question, how'd you find DVC Magic Point Rentals? We usually rent points on Mouse Owners or find people on here, but I'm always looking for new places to rent from. I looked at other DVC rental companies but it's always like $13+/point. Crazy!

I actually found Bill through Mouse Owners. I didn't realize until later that he was starting a DVC rental company. It makes sense, though, because he had many years experience renting DVC points and was very good at it. He really went above and beyond.

The next day, we woke up bright and early - because it was DOUBLE BIRTHDAY DAY!!!!


DSC_3178 by vshingl, on Flickr

At a bar in Clemson, they give you a T-shirt for free on your birthday with a big 21 that says "21st Birthday I'm Legal!!!" with a tiger in a beer mug on the back. I thought it would be super cute to create a Disney version of the t-shirt, but obviously, I couldn't put any licensed characters on the shirt. So I created a version with a hand very similar to Mickey's holding the mug.

Max with his shirt, and Rachel acting out his 21st Birthday -


DSC_3182 by vshingl, on Flickr

Rachel got Max a shooter. Max started collecting shot glasses like Rachel this summer, so she added to his collection (they had many more shooters than shot glasses for some reason).


DSC_3186 by vshingl, on Flickr

Birthday boy, ready to go -
