I'm in! I agree with you about Jessica Biel's dress.

Art of Animation is so cute!

10 years is a long time. I'm a few years older than you (29) and have been with my SO for 7 years. I know a proposal is in the works, but it's hard to wait after so many years. Trying not to get my hopes up for our upcoming trip or the holidays..

Yes, it was a pretty prom dress but not a pretty wedding dress!

It was a long walk. It wouldn't be too bad from a different building but our building was the furthest one!

Boma Breakfast


This morning's plans were to have breakfast at Boma at 8:30am. We did NOT want to take the bus system there because we knew it would take a long time so we decided to take a cab! Most brilliant idea ever! The cab only ended up $15 with tip.

When we were getting ready Corey goes, "Oh SH**!!" I am like, "What did you forget!??" He forgot his belt and he said if he didn't have his belt his pants would fall off. So we were contemplating how to get a belt. When to go to Wal-mart, how much it would cost, if there were any shops in DTD that would have a belt.. So that was our mission, to find Corey a belt!

Coming to our elevator I had to take a picture of this amazing view overlooking the Little Mermaid section.


Corey hailed a cab while I checked us into our package portion.



When we got to AKL we headed to their gift shop to find a belt! They had belts!!! And they were normal brown leather belts!! Yay! He had to get a size bigger than he normally wears but he just put the notch tighter. It was about $30. We were shocked that they had normal non Mickey belts.

Here he is putting on hie belt!


I need to start pin collecting. I don't want to trade I just want to collect them. I love the pins that are ride themed or Disney World themed. The problem is they are so expensive!

I want to start with this OSU Pin!


Walking downstairs to Boma. Do you see a hidden mickey? I have no clue if it is a hidden mickey it just looks like it!


We went to check in for our reservation and they didn't have it! She looked for about 5 minutes. After we sat down I realized it was under Corey's name. Oopsie!

Breakfast is only $18.99! Great deal I think.




Here is the area we sat in.


It is such a pretty restaurant. I didn't love the food this time but it is still a nice place to go to. If you want to read my dining review check HERE!

We were soo happy to be at our first Disney restaurant. I could not wait to meet Emily back at the hotel so I could show her my favorite place in the world!

That's such a cool picture from AoA! Looks like such a fun resort.

And now I've found your TR! Yay! That's too bad that the beds and pillows are not the best. Was the bed creaky?? I'm a light sleeper that wouldn't have worked for me!

The view of the LM pool area at AoA is really fun and brilliantly themed.

Glad to know that at least the AKL gift shop has belts - good thing it wasn't blingy with Mickey heads!

AWE!!! The Little Mermaid area looks great!

Good to know about the comforters. I'm sure that the ones over in Nemo won't be much better… I'll be prepared!

Off to a great start!

I walked around AOA a bit when we stayed at POP last month and I just loved how bright and colourful everything is!

Ahh your collage of Lola is adorable! What a cutie!

Wow, what a relief to get the job right before you left for your vacation! That would definitely be cause for celebration!

I'm like you in that I'm anxious when traveling. I would much rather get to an airport earlier than later. I'll walk around or find something to eat. I feel sick to my stomach thinking I might be late.

Yum, Boma for breakfast? My husband and I had Boma for dinner during our honeymoon and absolutely LOVED it! I didn't know breakfast was only $18!

(I just realized it was you on Instagram )

I totally had to laugh at the belt story............My DH left his belt in the airport on one of our trips and he insisted that we go buy one before we even set foot in a park. Fortunately we had a car, but leaving the Disney bubble before even getting there was pretty darn hard.

I love those rooms at AoA. They are adorable.

Boma breakfast - yum. We ate there in June and loved it!

Yeah the bed was a little creaky when you turned around. It also wasn't that comfy because Corey and I had to share. We are used to a queen. I know, i was worried we would find a belt but it would be full of mickey heads! haha

they might be a little better since that section was the first to open! I think they just need to be washed more.

First Safari of the Day!


After our breakfast we headed out to the bus stop.



We saw an AK bus there so we ran to catch it.

As soon as I got there she closed the doors and shook her head at me and ran her hand along her neck like she was cutting it off or something.

I know the bus was crowded but I am pretty sure they could have fit two more of us on it. I was kind of mad about this but I got over it

Here is Corey waiting patiently with his pretty Vera bag


We ended up waiting 25 minutes for the next AK bus!! I swear, deluxe buses stink. Anytime I am at a deluxe resort they take so long.

First thing we did when we got to AK was wait in line for the characters of UP! They are cute, the dog was licking my hand.

(insert PP UP pic here)

Next thing we did was head straight for the safari! I love the safari and try to do this first thing because supposedly the animals are more active in the morning.







At first they were only loading the right side. They opened up the left side as soon we got to the divider so we first in line on the left side.

We got a cool wheelchair row with only two seats.


Our driver- I forget his name. He was kinda boring.


Safari pics.. I am not sure what the limit is so I will just keep posting.









Rhino caked in mud!




New zebra area.






Coming out of the safari cool photo op!
