Ahh! I love your cake. It's so perfect! And I completely agree with you and your mom about Belle's new look. I don't care that it was loud and obnoxious, I miss the bright yellow dress!

It was SO delicious! The cannoli cream costs extra but was SO worth it!

THAT CAKE. What? They don't make fancy cakes like that around here but if they did I'd be ALLLL over it. That's perfect. And I agree. Belle's new look is terrible. It's the only one I despise. Anyways. Happy late Birthday! Have fun with your boys!
YAY!

It's honestly not even that fancy of a cake compared to a lot of the other ones. It was $9.99! I've always wanted a super fancy cake like they do on the food network but those cost hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars which is so crazy.

I agree, I don't HATE the other new princess looks but let's just say I'm not crazy about them in general. I just don't understand why you would change such a classic Disney thing. Next let's change Mickey's look! Like, what? Why? If it ain't broke don't fix it.

Thank you! It really was. It's gone now, sadly, but oh did I enjoy it while it lasted!

I miss that dress too! Mainly because it LOOKED EXACTLY LIKE HER DRESS FROM THE MOVIE. Which should be the goal. I still just can't even fathom the reasoning behind this new look thing.

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! Oh my goodness, that has to be one of the most awesome cakes I have ever seen in my entire existence. And it sounds delicious too!

Loved your update on Via Napoli...one of my favorite places. I love the lasagna so much it makes it hard to branch out, but your pasta looked amazing as well! May have to try that next time!

Just wanted to wish you a Happy Happy Birthday. Also wanted to tell you what a GREAT trip report,as I read it, it brings back such wonderful memories of DisneyWorld.I`m a 55 year old dad and a total Disney World Nut. My wife and I went there for our honeymoon, 25th annivesary and countless times with the kids -they all tolerate me, but they really don`t GET IT (they went with me cause I pay for it-LOL) I love youe writing style and it makes me feel like I`m there, cause I can tell you GET IT. Hopefully will be back in May 2014 with my two Grandsons - I`m counting the days - 395 days and counting !!!!!!
(for our 33 1/2 year Anniversary) have not been there since 2012 and it feels like forever.

Coming out of lurkdom to tell you how much I LURVE your trip report. I just posted on Jess's TR that you two are both responsible for my deep descent into Disney madness. I was just like you two when I was your age, and real life has kept me away from my lovely obsession, but it is time to dust it off and wave it proudly. I'll be on vacation with my family during your frump vacation, so if I see a bunch of girls "living it up" and looking like princesses I will know I am in the presence of royalty. Thanks for taking the time to write such clever and funny trip reports. Can't wait to hear about last night's concert!

It's always such a bummer when you find that rare CM who's just a complete pain to deal with. At least her manager was super awesome!

I honestly don't think I've ever been in World of Disney and not bought something. A couple of years ago, I did my Christmas shopping there! Disney presents for everyone! WOO!

OMG I LOVE YOUR BIRTHDAY CAKE! It reminds me of those Barbie cakes that were super popular in the 90s, but obviously way better because it's Belle, not Barbie.

(Happy super belated birthday!)

I just read the entirety of this TR. All throughout my kids watching Toy Story 3, I read. I laughed, I cried, I shared with my husband (he laughed at the gorilla saga). I can't wait to read more! Perhaps I'll go to your old reports. Subbing!

Oooo I would love to try the lasagna, but I feel the same way you do... it's hard to branch out once you have a favorite menu item! I feel the same way about Chefs de France.

Thank you so much! Sometimes I *wish* real life would take me away from the obsession so I could actually accomplish something other than staying up to date with the Disney Food Porn thread... but alas.

I hope you have a magical beyond magical trip!!! It's coming up so soon!! AHH!! Again, thank you!

It's not even that he was super awesome, he just DID HIS JOB unlike her. I mean, the way she acted was really unprecedented for me when it comes to CMs.

They actually have the Barbie cake! I think that's where they got the idea!

SO MUCH BETTER, but it's not even the dress that bothers me as much as that god awful wig. It's so. bad. If I was a child, I'd be like "mommy, what happened to Belle's hair?!"

Real Life/PTR Update: Hanson & #BirthdayFestivus13!

I am posting this here cause Hanson is obviously a big part of this report and ultimately the reason I got #StuckInDisney (if not for them playing the week I went, I would have scheduled the trip a little earlier in October, and wouldn't have gotten stuck! They seriously have the same kind of magic Disney does when it comes to my life), plus so many Hanson fans have come out of the woodwork and left comments on this report, so I figured you'd all want to know how the show was! This is what I wrote on Tumblr & Facebook (edited a bit cause I tend to use colorful language when not on the DIS! haha)

this was one of the best things ever. you have no idea. i feel like i was dead and someone just jolted me back to life. i plan on writing a more in depth post about the iheartradio show tonight but for now this is what i just posted on facebook:

If you are wondering what is better than going with one of your best friends to see your favorite band at an invite only intimate show in which they play never before heard music in new york, the answer is nothing. ATTENTION ALL HANSON FANS, you have no idea what you are in for. You have no idea what happened. They are on another level. When I tell you that I have been following them on tour since I was 13, been to 50 some shows in god knows how many states, and I have NEVER SEEN THEM LIKE THIS BEFORE, I am so serious. Also I have to mention that Taylor has once again proved that he is the main reason I find 99% of men boring and unsatisfying…after he repeatedly apologized because they couldn’t hang out I told him how on another level the new music was, we high fived and I just wish there was time to talk to him, Ike, and Zac about every detail in every song I heard tonight. Another thing I said to him was that this music is so worth the wait. They could have easily made a great album that was safe. We all would have been happy. Instead they have evolved into something so much greater than I even imagined. I AM SO PROUD OF THEM. For Hanson to surpass my ridiculous expectations of them is really something. You Can’t Stop Us is my favorite - I can not describe the exhilaration of hearing this live tonight. When they said they were inspired by Queen & big classic rock ballads that was no joke. It is so rare in life that you are literally THRILLED by something but I was practically gasping for air during this song. I really don’t even know though because every song was so fantastic. I can not describe my excitement for this year. THE TOUR HAS NOT EVEN STARTED YET. So many good things in my life have happened because of this band and every time I am with them I get that same exact magical feeling that can not be touched by anything. If you think I’m not quitting my job, going on the road and singing along to every song from Anthem in venues across America, you are extremely wrong. GOODNIGHT.

yeah i don’t even know. i need time to process this. i can’t with this new music. i am so happy. i just keep crying. i love them so much.


SO YES, it was absolutely PERFECT. Best birthday present I possibly could have gotten. It seriously put me in the best mood ever and I just feel so much better about everything in life. And thank God we postponed #BirthdayFestivus13 because I would have missed it if we had been there last week. I also got to see another favorite band, friends The Spring Standards, a local NYC-based unbelievably talented group consisting of 3 of the coolest people I have ever met. That was literally the day after Hanson and I was in such a daze, so seeing ANOTHER favorite band sent me over the edge. I'm floating on a cloud as we speak.

I really can not stress enough how lucky we are all as Hanson fans right now. I mean, we're always lucky, cause we know the best kept secret in rock and roll and all, but this is next level. That's what I keep saying because it's classic Hanson, but they have now elevated themselves. In one of their new songs "Fired Up", they sing, "We're not fooling around this time" and boy IS THAT ACCURATE. I can not wait to get back on tour and see them a million times later this year. Oh man, I feel like i'm 13, 14, 15 again and it's the best feeling in the world. I really wish I was going to Tulsa next month, but it's pretty okay because I'M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD so ya know. (Plus, they're doing a radio tour, so hopefully I'll get to see them again before I even go to Disney! They did Baltimore and DC today, and are headed to Buffalo and Tampa next week. I actually would have gone down there this morning if I knew for sure I could've gotten in to see them play, but spending a ton of $ that I need to save for Disney and traveling 4 hours seemed a tad ridiculous when I didn't even have a pass into the stations. So.)

Speaking of #BirthdayFestivus13, it's extremely soon. I can't even believe it. It seemed so far away and now it's happening in less than a month! I seriously can not even fathom this right now! It's been stressing me out a lot, like I feel that I am somehow "not ready" for this trip. However, the great thing about it is I don't have to be READY for it. I don't have to DO anything except pack, get to the airport on time, and enjoy myself. I can just go and relax with my friends. No pressure! I really want this trip to be different and more laid back. I truly do need a vacation. Maybe I'll throw this all out the window when I get there and commando like crazy, but I doubt it. I just want to stroll around New Fantasyland drinking Lefou's Brew like basically the whole time. I'm not going to micro manage anything, and our plans are rough and up in the air.

I honestly had the best time during #StuckInDisney12 when I just threw my hands up and said, "I'm doing whatever, cause I'm not even supposed to be here right now!" It felt great, because everything felt like a bonus. That's how this WHOLE TRIP feels to me because I am not one of the people who is used to going to Disney so soon after just being there for 12 days. It seriously does not compute. I can't even believe it.

LOL I have to share the convo with Lee-Anne I just had:

Me: Sidenote, how can it be that we are going to Disney World in less than a month? Are you even mentally getting this? Because I am so not.
Lee-Anne: NO. I am literally not even excited. Disney World is a myth.
Me: A myth LOL. I'm excited, but in a completely different way than I usually am. I might even LAY BY THE POOL AND RELAX.
Lee-Anne: I will not sit here and listen to such lies.

HAHAHAHA. Oh us. We're just too overwhelmed by Hanson and the idea of going back to Disney so soon to function, no big deal. Like as much as I would love to live there and work at WDW, I don't understand how people do it without losing it all the time.

SO YEAH I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS and I am ready, with the help of Disney and Hanson, to make the rest of this year a good one that doesn't bury me in a pile of stress. I am the person who worries all the time about everything, including things that don't make sense and are not even relevant to my life, and lately I've been worrying about this trip so much as if it's something that could turn bad. Short of a complete disaster, what could happen? AHHHHHHH THIS IS GOING TO BE SUCH A GREAT TRIP, I know it, and I just have to chill and stop with the worrying. WHEW.

Okay, onto the update!! MNSSHP, BABY!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. I have to mention that although they have not officially confirmed it, I'm about 90% sure Hanson will be at Eat to the Beat sometime in between October 20 and November 7. So. YEAH.
