Ohh, I want that blue ray collection! I have all 10 seasons on DVD, but I'd like all of them in a nice, neat little package! Although I don't even need to watch the DVD's because it's on 20 times a day! Which is awesome!

Breakfast with some Fluffy Friends

Friday, November 9, Part 2

Since we decided to skip Splash, we didn't have anything to do in Frontierland at the moment, so we decided to use our Peter Pan FP's. We went back to Fantasyland and got right onto Peter Pan with our FP's, they just let everyone who had one get on with no wait! I love that about FP's, but I always feel bad for the people stuck in standby, just waiting there, not moving.

Peter Pan was magical as always, and when we were finished, Brandon wanted to do Philharmagic. We had a breakfast ADR at Crystal Palace, but it was still pretty early, so we had no problem seeing Philharmagic, especially since we went in right when they opened the doors to the theater, so there was no waiting around or anything!

I absolutely love everything about Philharmagic, it's just perfect! I usually end up crying at one time during the show, either during the Little Mermaid part or the Lion King part. I just can't handle all the Disney perfection all at once!

Once Philharmagic was over, we decided to go over to Crystal Palace to check in, even though we were a little early.



We checked in and we got seated right away, even though we were a few minutes early, which was nice, because after that not so fantastic danish, I was starving!

We sat on the right side and our server told us to just to up to the buffet right away because the characters would be back out soon (they must have been taking a break or something because when we walked in, no one was out!). We went up to the buffet, got some stuff and sat back down, and soon enough, Pooh was visiting our table!



(Sorry I'm not putting up my picture with Pooh, it's terrible!)

Right after we saw Pooh, Tigger came to visit!



(Ok, that picture isn't much better than my Pooh picture, but Brandon's Tigger pic is just awful, so I had to put one up at least! )

While we were waiting for Eeyore and Piglet, we ate our breakfast, which I'm sorry, I didn't take pictures of, but I'm sure you guys know by now what the Crystal Palace buffet looks like! I got an omelet, some wonderful Disney bacon, that potato thing they have there, which I realized I don't like because it's way too onion-y, and of course PUFFED FRENCH TOAST! I'd go to Crystal Palace just for the puffed french toast alone, it's that good! In fact, if I go there again, I might just do that, because my omelet was awful, it was not cooked at all, and I don't think I ended up eating much of it. Oh well! Everything else was pretty good though!

Sadly, we didn't wait for Eeyore and Piglet, they were just taking way too long and we were ready to get out of there and do something else!

We decided to go to Tomorrowland and check out the wait time for Space Mountain. I love Tomorrowland, I could spend hours just sitting there, listening to that perfect music loop, so when we got there, I found a place to sit for a minute and just take it all in while Brandon went over to Space Mountain to see how long the wait was. He came back and told me it was way too long, so we decided to do one of my favorites...



THE PEOPLEMOVER!!!

I don't know what it is about this ride that I love so much, but I do, I love just sitting back and riding around Tomorrowland!

(Oh, and if you're wondering why it looks like there are tons of people getting on all at once, I think the ride was down and it reopened like, right when we got there, so a lot of people were let in at one time! There wasn't some mad rush to get to the Peoplemover or anything! )

I know you are all dying to see the required Peoplemover-shoe-picture, so here you go:



Those are my brand new Merrels that I bought specifically for this trip, and I walked in for a few weeks before we left and I thought they would be great and...they weren't! Oh well, I'm just never going to find comfy Disney shoes I guess! They are cute though, aren't they?



When we finished our tour of Tomorrowland, it was around noon and we were getting kind of tired, getting up at 5:45 was starting to catch up with us, and although I planned to stay at the Magic Kingdom until 2ish, we decided to just go back to POR for a while to unpack and nap so we had energy later that night.

I did have to take a few pictures on the way out, I mean, how could you walk by this and not take a picture?



Soooo cute, I want Mickey and Minnie topiaries in my garden someday!

So that little parade/dance party they do at MK, is that still the "Move it, Shake it, Celebrate it" thing, or is it something different now? Well, that was going on as we were walking out, so I stopped for a few minutes to watch, since we always kind of ignore it!



It's cute, but it just makes me want to see the afternoon parade in MK, and I swear, no matter how hard I try, I will never see that parade!

Well, sadly, it was time to leave MK for the day, even though I was getting more and more tired by the minute, I still hate leaving the parks! However, I was excited to get to POR and check out our ROYAL ROOM!!

Up next...our lovely Royal Room (which I'll be doing the update for right after I post this one!)

A Royal Tour

Friday, November 9, Part 3

Hi guys! I wanted to show you guys all of the pictures of my royal room at POR, but I didn't really want to wait a few days and do it as a separate update, because that would have been kind of boring, and there are way too many pictures for it to be a part of another update...so I'm just going to do it now!

Since we were already checked in and we knew our room was ready, we drove right over to the building our room was in. I requested a 2nd floor room in the Oak Manor section and I got a 2nd floor room in Parterre Place. I didn't think I'd want to stay in that section, because it seemed far away from the main building, but it actually wasn't bad!

We found our room, opened the door, and...AHHHHHH!!! It was BEAUTIFUL! Even if you've seen the pictures, it's still nothing like stepping into this amazing room in person for the first time! I took TONS of pictures of the room, so get ready!

First, the beds and TV area:







The fireworks on the headboard:



Magic carpet:



Some adorable details on the walls:







OMG how much do you want that coat hook, with Cinderella's carriage on it???? WHY DO THEY NOT SELL THESE THINGS TO TAKE HOME WITH YOU????





Some of the pictures up close:





This next picture is so beautiful, it's kind of 3D-ish:



I tried to get a close up to show the effect, but it came out a little blurry, sorry! But isn't it cute?





Look at the faucets on the sink! They're genie lamps!!! How adorable!!!



And then, look at the border they had in the bathroom on the walls:



And the shower curtain!





Oh, and if you're wondering what is on the border of the walls in the actual room? It's all of the princesses little friends like Chip (sorry this is kind of dark!):



and the FAIRIES!!!



Overall, I thought the room was absolutely perfect! I mean, if a princess is going to have guest rooms, I would imagine they would look just like these rooms, they were beautiful! I loved how every princess was represented in some way! I was nervous Brandon might not like the room, that he might think it was too girly, but he actually loved it!

Once I was finished taking my 500 pictures of every angle and corner of the room (I have way more than what I showed you guys, I just tried to pick the highlights!) we unpacked and went to sleep for a while!

Up next...more Food and Wine at Epcot!

I love your pictures! What a clear blue sky at MK that day! I don't remember ever eating that puffed french toast at CP, I might need to try some next time! I also love the peoplemover, even though it isn't a big e-ticket ride lol Also, thanks for sharing your pictures of the Royal Room. I have never stayed in one, so it is great to see all of those detailed pictures.

Wow that room is really pretty It's like a princess fantasy come true...

I'm loving your photos of your Crystal Palace Breakfast...I have to finally do that in July (I'm one of the only Disers who hasn't actually done it... ummm I had some issues with the large proportions of the Pooh characters for a bit...especially the large Pink Piglet... but I've had an intervention... and it's all better... so I'm going to make an ADR in January when my window opens...)

Isn't BTMR the best? It's a little corny but I'll always love it...

I took that same little photo of Dumbo...

Nice photo op with Marie... I'm not sure but I don't think she's in France at Epcot anymore...

Your Royal Room looks Ah-ma-zing!!!!!!!!
I am so in love with it!!!! All the details make it so perfect!!!!! AHHH!!!!! :D

I usually cry during PhilharMagic, too! It's perfect, that's all there is to it.

What could be better than a breakfast full of "THE PUFFED?" Nothing I say, NOTHING!

Oh my goodness... way to make me want to book a stay in a Royal Room right this second! That is absolutely PERFECT!!!!! I'm dying over here. Good Lord. I seriously stared at/examined every picture for like a minute each. This is intense. Love it! Thanks for the great tour!

I have decided it is impossible to find the perfect "Disney" shoe! If you do find it, will you PLEASE let me know!

Puffed French Toast = Yum!

Your room is gorgeous! So well themed! I think you stayed in the two prettiest rooms on property! Love it!

Sounds like a great morning in MK, I love the People Mover too!
OMG your royal room is absolutely perfect! So adorable! I can't decide if my favourite thing is Carpet or the lamp taps or maybe the headboards. It's all so magical!
