Love the update. I loved the Little Mermaid ride. It is just perfect. Can't wait to go back even though I know Denny could care less about the little mermaid.

SO SO fun that you got to explore New Fantasyland!! I felt the same the first time we ate at Be Our Guest - I was so excited, and it was so beautiful - I didn't care how the food tasted! And it was pretty good! I haven't tried LeFou's Brew yet, but it's definitely on my list for next time!

We had fast passes for Ariel, so we didn't see the normal queue line. It's ADORABLE though! I love it!!!!!!

Gastons is perfectly themed! I could go for a LeFou's brew right now to!
Belle is my favorite princess to! We didn't get a chance to go in the shop though! Need to do that next time!!!!

I LOVE NFL!!!! It's perfect and lovely!!!!

Poly is gorgeous! I'd love to stay there one day!

I am SO excited about the Little Mermaid queue and Eric's Castle! Probably more than anything else in the FLE. Seriously, that sounds like SUCH a fun morning!! I love the photo of Brandon channeling Gaston.

Ahhh all of New Fantasyland is just fantastic. The Little Mermaid ride looks so adorable! I can't wait to see it! (November is forever away!!!!)
Gaston's tavern looks really fun too. Love Brandon's pic in Gaston's chair!

I'm so excited to see New Fantasyland! I keep hoping that the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is operational when we get there but it's not supposed to be until 2014 so I won't hold my breath!

I am the same way with The Poly...I always take a million pictures just walking through. People are always like "OMG you stayed there?!" and I have to be like "no, I just went there for breakfast...." Someday!!!

I was hoping to spend lots of time there tonight!



Up next...the Osborne Lights and DHS magic hours!

That couple getting their photo taken in your photo?? TOTALLY ME!! Well, my husband and I!! haha I was wondering when I started reading your TR (which I love by the way) if my hubby and I would have been at any parks the same day, thinking it would be hilarious if we ended up in your photos AND WE DID!! I'm very over excited over here haha.

okay, back to catching up on the rest of the trip!

I have no idea how I missed an update.

Brandon did awesome as Gaston. The pictures you got "Under the Sea" are great.

Thanks for sharing.
I've only read 1 TR where the person didn't like the Under the Sea ride... but they didn't get to go in BOG.
Also, I thought BOG was a formal, sit down restaurant- more like Le Celier.
So, good to know.
I know, it was crazy, I could not believe we got to eat there! I thought maybe we'd get to go in and look around, but actually eating there was awesome!

I loved the Ariel ride! I remember when they did previews in October, a lot of people complained about it, that it was too short. I thought it was fantastic!

BOG is formal for dinner, a nice sit down restaurant, but for lunch it's table service! It's so cool that it can be both!

haha, I got that Belle cup too for my Lefou's Brew! For the first time I felt I had to, kind of like when my sisters and I went to Universal and got our Butterbeer! But yeah, I most likely won't get the souvenir cup again.
Thanks!

LOL I know, I think the shells are cute! It's such an awesome ride!

OMG pretty much the only reason I want to go to Universal is to try Butterbeer! I really have no interest in Harry Potter other than that, it just sounds SO good!

Yay I'm so glad you got a BOG reservation! I'm not sure I'm going to bother for my next trip, since I've already eaten there and there are tons of other places I'd rather go, but I might try to get in for lunch!

Thanks! LOL I thought Brandon wouldn't care about the Little Mermaid either, but he really liked the ride! Maybe Denny will surprise you and like it!

I KNOW!!! It was such a great day! I have to leave a few days unplanned for my next trip, because it's just so fun, doing whatever you want!! I'd love some LeFou's brew right now, it's so hot!!

The queue line is really cute! But still, I'd take FP's over standing in line, no matter how cute the area is!

You have to go in Belle's shop, it's so perfect! I wanted to buy everything in there!! New Fantasyland is the best! I could spend a whole day there!

I need to stay in the Poly someday, I love it!

I know, I was the most excited about the Little Mermaid ride! I didn't know what to expect with Be Our Guest, but it was amazing!! I just love New Fantasyland!

Haha, isn't that a great picture? I love it!

It really is! I love it so much! Haha, November will be here before you know it, don't worry! I'm a pro when it comes to waiting for November trips, that's my month lol!

Gaston's is really cute, I love how it's all decorated with antlers!

OMG I can't believe you haven't seen New Fantasyland yet!! You're going to die! It's so ridiculous!! I wish the Mine Train would open this year, but you know, it's a good reason to go back next year!

Haha, yep, I only go to the Poly to eat and loiter on the beach for a little while! Someday I'll stay there...hopefully May 2015!

OMG I'm so behind on everyone's TR's...just when I think I have time, something else happens and I end up being away from the DIS for days!

Thanks, I love the Little Mermaid ride, I wish my camera was better at action shots though! And I love that picture of Brandon! I should get some weird wooden frame for it or something! Something that looks like antlers!

Ahh, so with you on the amazingness of New Fantasyland! It's just beautiful there. I REALLY can't wait to spend more time there during our next trip. I am beyond excited to eat a cinnamon roll at Gaston's Tavern, and we might even try the pork shank! I just am super excited for itttt, eeeee. I clearly need a Disney World fix at the moment, don't mind me.

Girl, you should so spend more time at the Disney pools, especially when it's hot out! It's like my favorite thing to do when it's hot out, just relax by the pool and not have a care in the world. I plan on doing that a LOT in September on those hot afternoons, that's for sure. It's funny, when I was 6 and we went to Disney World, my favorite part was swimming and going down the slide at Caribbean Beach Resort, hahaha. Forget the parks, my 6 year old self wanted to swim!

I think I want to stay at the Poly one day. Like, if they open up a DVC there, I'd totally book a few nights there just to see what it's like! It's so pricey but so beautiful... I love visiting it every trip!

I agree with you on the Little Mermaid ride, it was cool to see a beloved film be brought to life. And I think they did a good job on it, no matter what others might think. When I came to the Ursula scene, I was kind of "wowed" by how big and life-like she was.

It sounds like you had fun exploring the New Fantasyland!

I know, I just love New Fantasyland! I could spend hours there and not do anything! I can't wait until the Mine Train is open and the whole area comes together!

AHHHH I need a Disney fix too!!! I wish I was there right now for the 24 hour thing! So jealous of everyone who is lol!

I know, I need to spend more time at the pools. I don't know why we don't it's usually because we have to choose between napping or swimming and napping always wins haha! I was surprised I actually went in the pool twice when I went with my sister in February!

I need to stay at the Poly!!! I've wanted to forever, I almost booked it for one of our trips, but it's just SO freakin expensive!! I better start saving now if I want to stay there for our 5 year anniversary in 2 years!

I know, wasn't Ursula awesome? I was amazed at how big she was too! The whole ride is amazing, I could go on it over and over if they'd let me!

I did! New Fantasyland was amazing!!!
