Both your Pluto drawings are really good! That would have been a difficult choice to make...Rapunzel seems like an awesome character to learn how to draw, but Pluto's a classic.

That's so exciting that your next trip is getting closer! Plus, this one should be different and special, since it's a girl's trip.

Fastpass wait times seem to have gone up a bit. I know Alex waited 30 minutes for one attraction with a FP, which seemed a little long to me. I don't even like thinking about what the new FP+ system is going to be like....

Can't wait to see how evening magic hours at MK went!

Your Pluto drawings are great! I think I've done almost all of the fab 5 now myself! I love that class though, so much fun and unlike anything else you do. Great picture of ToT, strange about the long wait though, wow!

26 days?! Not fair! LOL.

Oooh, I love the Pluto drawings! We did Pluto once but it looked different than both of those. That's another thing that's cool about the Animation Academy...you can do the same character but in a different view!

I can't believe the Agent P pin was your first Disney pin! Are you ready to get addicted to something else now?! I'm obsessed with pins and vinylmation.

Great Plutos! Sounds like Animation Academy is getting pretty popular. Love the make-your-own pasta station at POR. Can't believe you're going back so soon!

Your Pluto drawings came out so cute! DH and I love doing the drawing classes, but unfortunately we haven't been able to do them the past couple of trips because Paxton is still too young. Hopefully we will get to do them again someday! We have gotten stuck with the lapboards too and they stink! Much rather have a real desk and stool.

Loving your TR! I am taking my kids on their first ever trip to DW! I've been a few times in my mid-teens to early twenties with the Grandparents. It was the type of run wild, meet us for lunch & dinner & maybe we'll see you when you get back to the hotel, type of trips. No organization & I want to say only one ADR meal. I'm going all out for my son's 21st Birthday! This has been a dream of mine since they were little & well, although it has taken forever (they will be 16 & 21), I'm making that dream come true! We are also staying at POR Royal Rooms River View. I'm hoping for Oak Manor like you were, but we shall see.
Soooo Excited & I have LOVED your TR so far! It's just making my excitement even more elevated! Thanks for sharing with us!

That vinylmation looks like a scene out of Peter Pan! So fun!
I want to stay in the royal rooms, they look awesome! Maybe one day...
I got to ride ToT for the first time ever! I always thought it was so scary and never wanted to ride it but for some reason, I had to do it! And loved it!!!

Lol, on forgetting to take food pics! It's so funny how sometimes I get a ton of pics and other times, I completely forget!

I know, it's so soon!!!


I know, sometimes I can't believe that even exists in Disney, I love how they customize everything, even pasta!

Both this trip and the one in 2011 I saw lots of people for the drawing class. It seems to be getting very popular now and not so much a hidden gem anymore. I find you either have to arrive 15-20 minutes early, or you will get a pad at the front. Or sometimes nothing at all and will have to wait another 30 minutes. I can see why so many people want to do it though, it's so much fun!
I know I can't wait!

Yeah I'm not liking how long you have to wait for the drawing class, but it is really fun, so I can't blame people for wanting to do it! I think next time I'll try to time it so I get there just as a class is starting so I can wait for the next one!

Aww, yall both did a great job on Pluto! So cute!

Darn those crowds!

I love your pin! That was your first? Oh man. I smell an addiction coming on... (Hahah, at least, that's what happened to me!)

Haha, well basically we tried to do a good job with those Pluto drawings, but it's hard when you literally have to draw on your lap.

Ok I'm going to stop now, because this could get obnoxious!

YES Agent P was my first pin! I'm not sure I'll get addicted but I have to admit, I spent lots of time looking at pins this trip! I'm just not sure how trading works, and I already trade Vinylmations so I'm gonna stick with one obsession for now! But those pins are tempting!
