Monday October 22nd
Got up and headed straight away to Hollywood Studios. Enjoyed some rides and shows before heading back for a quick swim before dinner.
Friends of ours highly recommended Raglan Road so we decided to give it a try. My youngest dd is a highland dancer so she was super excited to watch Irish dancing. She was quick to pick up the similarities between the two and the differences. Had a great dinner. Hubby loved the beer flight. Go figure. Toured around Downtown for a bit before heading back to the trailer. Not ready to call it a day, we hopped on a 10pm boat to extra magic hours at Magic Kingdom. Stayed til 1am and had a blast. That is til our youngest woke at 3am to redecorate part of the trailer. Not sure if the food disagreed but she was fine after a shower and change of sheets. Thank goodness she doesn't get ill very often. Lol.

Tuesday October 23rd
Hoping to sleep in after that, we were all awake by 8:30. Decorated the campsite for most of the morning. Upset as our pumpkin blowup had a splice in the wire. Darn. Oh well. We are now decorated and in the true Fort spirit of Halloween.
Took some time to chill by the pool, play some games, etc. afterwards hubby and I ran into Kissimmee as we needed a plastic plug for our hot water tank. Somehow hubby broke it off in the tank and we can't seem to get it out. Grrrrr.
Came back, BBQ'd dinner, did a load if laundry from yesterday's fiasco and golf cart looped while the girls watched the brand new Tink movie outside our trailer.
Breakfast at 1900 Park Fare tomorrow. Girls are super excited.

Beer porn instead of food porn. A real man's thread!

Great job!

Were you able to fix your wire? If not, let me know what you need and I will see if I have it. We will be there Saturday morning.

Thumbs up

I LOVE the highland dance picture! My daughter would be jealous, no one offers that style in our area.

Can't wait for more TR!

Wednesday October 24th
Started the day off right with breakfast at 1900 Park Fare. It's our favourite buffet and its a bonus with characters. We purchased photopass plus this time and thought we would only receive digital copies at this breakfast. We were delightfully surprised that we received both the digital and the prints!!! Yay! Once we had all dug into our fave foods: strawberry soup for the oldest dd, Mickey waffles for the other dd, made to order omelette for the hubby and lobster eggs Benedict for me, we enjoyed our breakfast in peace. It wasn't til we were nearing the end of our meal that the characters started visiting. It was nice. We didn't feel rushed and it was one of the better character meals we've had. After greeting Pooh, Tigger, Mad Hatter, Alice and Mary Poppins we finished up and took a monorail ride. The girls decided to "Gangnam style" dance on the monorail. Good for a laugh. Afterwards decided to take the boat from Hollywood Studios to the Boardwalk. Spent some hot time in the sun there wandering. Purchased some desserts at the Boardwalk Bakery to take back to the trailer with us. Mmmmmm. Got back to the trailer around 3:30 and killed an hour before heading out for a surprise. My 40th bday was not too long ago and my boss surprised me with 2 tickets to Cirque du Soliel La Nouba. We kept it a secret from the girls and purchased 2 more tickets for all of us to go. Youngest dd was by far the most excited as she has wanted to go see Cirque back in Canada for well over a year. Tonight I shared my bday gift with the family and we loved EVERY minute of it. It was simply amazing. All of us raved about it afterwards!!! Got back to the trailer for a super late dinner of trusty ole hotdogs. Lol. Went out looping again before the girls crashed, Halloween decor is getting crazy. Hubby and I enjoyed a drink in peace before retiring for the night.

Thursday October 25th
After some confusion last night at Downtown Disney where we were quoted $98 per person fee on our tickets to upgrade to Waterpark and More, I sent the hubby to the outpost to clarify. He had an excellent time up there this morning. First he arranged Magical Express for the oldest dd as she has to fly out next Tuesday and get back to university. Then he added the WP & M to our tickets for only $24 per person. Yaaaaa. And then he arranged for our friends arriving Saturday to not only be upgraded to premium like we were but to be in the same loop, site right across from us. Bonus!!!! Productive morning for my hubby!!! Lol. We then made sure we were prepared at the trailer in case it rained (good call there lol) and then headed out to Animal Kingdom. Started with Bugs Life (oldest dd jumped to the ceiling when the bugs left the theatre, which is hilarious since she knew it was coming), went and grabbed Fast Passes for Expedition Everest and went over to Dinoland to kill time. Girls rode Dinosaur and captured their ride photo with the pp+. We then went back to Everest and all 4 of us rode. Love that ride and the way it grabs your stomach!! Once again grabbed the uber hilarious ride photo and went off towards Africa. Rain started and we took cover til it lightened. Tried on some hats and such. Lol. Girls went and grabbed Fast Passes for Kilimanjaro Safari while hubby and I took in a refreshment. Nothing like a beer and a margarita to cure all that ails you. Lol. Took in the Flights of Wonder for the first time ever. It was amazing and saw a bald eagle for the first time ever close up. It was huge! Walked over to the Safari and glad we had Fast Pass. It was one of the better safaris and we saw loads of animals. Walking back we caught a street party band and we enjoyed their music before the heavens opened up. It was almost 5 and we figured we might as well head back. Man did we get soaked!! Had a nice BBQ dinner, quick golf cart cruise before I came back to tackle my work emails. Booooo. Got them done, spoke to my coworker and am now relaxing with a drink while the girls watch Tangled at the campfire.
