Is this November, 25? If so, I was at MK during the day and DHS at night. I had lunch at BOG and OMG it was so amazing! I definitely agree with you about the theming and the lighting! I ate in the West Wing and it was awesome in there, but the lighting sucked. Cute tattoos!

how great was that surprise walk up to BOG!? I think we'll enjoy it in Aug much more, as I was focused on keeping Troy happy for most of the time we were there! He really was cute with the Beast though.

Mickey ice cream followed by a RV cupcake? Sounds like my food pyramid.

"I guess when you retire and move to Florida, you work at Disney and gain 500 pounds because you work in a bake shop. That will be me. Except I’ll be working for Disney a lot sooner than that. And I will get paid more since Obama just raised the minimum wage BY A WHOLE DOLLAR. Yayyyy!"

Dying.

BAHA the fruit. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE fruit but

cupcake >> fruit

every time.

unless it's a gross cupcake...


NO THE KID DISNEY CHARACTERS I CAN'T HANDLE THE CUTE

I SPY STITCH

Yeah this was the 25th!
ISN’T IT INCREDIBLE?!
I can’t even IMAGINE the lighting in the West Wing. I thought the ballroom was bad!
Thanks! (:

WELL YEAH MINE TOOO.

Well really! When I am spending my life on Main Street holding balloons, I can thank Obama for giving me more money… to buy Disney souvenirs I don't need! Who cares about housing and food and all of that other crap! All of my money will be going to pins and stuffed animals. End of story.

BAHA the fruit. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE fruit but

cupcake >> fruit

every time.

I love fruit too, but when you have a RED VELVET CUPCAKE, there is no turning back.
And gross cupcakes don’t exist. Unless they are coming from Universal.

I was DYING when I saw them.

Seriously twin, it isn’t fancy AT ALL. You could just go in there with your park clothes and be soaking wet (like I was) and it wouldn’t matter. We don’t like to go to fancy places, ESPECIALLY at Disney. I am not a fan of getting dressed up. Be Our Guest really is not like that actually! And you could really find something to eat that isn’t fancy. And plus they change the menu up every season, like I said. So there is going to be something totally different and new when you go.

AND YES THAT SOUP YUMMMMMMY.

Drama in Frontierland. WHAT ELSE IS NEW?!

After the most amazing meal ever, we headed towards Main Street.

BYE NEW FANTASYLAND!!!


Beauty.


Main Street was a war zone. People were going every which way. Strollers crashing into people. Trying not to lose people in your party. It was seriously a nightmare. It was the nightmare before MVMCP. I am coming out with that movie this Christmas. Be sure to look out for it. It stars yours truly and 5000 people on Main Street. It is going to win an Oscar. I just know it!

We headed towards Guest Relations to see where we could pick up our wristbands for MVMCP!!! I was SO excited!!

A CM told us you could get them by Stitch’s Great Escape, near Pirates, or at the turnstiles.

Well we weren’t heading back into the war zone, so turnstiles it was!

We “exited” the park and CMs gave us our bracelets and a map. Time to PARTAY!

We went back into MK and TONS of people were getting spots for the first parade. So we ended up getting a spot right at the end of Main Street facing the castle.

Pictures from the train station first!

And as you can see, the Christmas tree wasn’t even up yet!

MVMCP time!



Mimi and Mum headed to the bathroom first so I waited with Troy and we watched the castle lighting. It was so magical.






Whoohoooo!




We have the best spot for the parade. I'm just sayin'. #mvmcp

We spread out a bunch of sweatshirts and jackets for our spots.

And then Troy wanted to go on Buzz. RIGHT THIS SECOND WHEN MAIN STREET IS A TOTAL MESS?! Yayy… -_-

So Mimi, Troy, and I headed to Tomorrowland and I lost them in the crowd about five times.

The Nightmare before MVMCP is going to be award winning, as you can see.

We got to Buzz and the wait time was 30 minutes. Umm… I really didn’t want to wait but Troy was DYING to go on, so I stood there. For like five minutes and then Mum texted us and said how people were walking all over our stuff, huffing and puffing because “we take too much room”, and anything else you can think of Stupid Guests do. She said once we were done, to head over quickly to save more room.

I NEEDED a good spot so I was like “See ya!” and left them.

Yes, I know I am very nice.

That is what makes me so special.

I made my way back down Main Street aka the war zone. Seriously, it was AWFUL. That is why my movie will make millions.

I got to our spot and saved some more room.

We had a nice view of the Emporium, which was decorated very nicely with Christmas lights and garland.


While sitting there, we sang along with the Christmas songs they were piping in on Main Street. Pretty soon we had a crowd forming around us because we were THAT good.

And then all of a sudden, it started snowing.


IT IS SNOWING ON MAIN STREET. I AM DYING

I AM CRYING OH MY GOD.


It all felt so magical. We were on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom which was decorated for Christmas, Christmas music was playing, we had a view of the half-lit castle…and then you add the snow on to all of that and you are basically dead by that point.

I WANT A BALLOOON GIMMEE.


Seth and Jackie came back while we were sitting there. They said dinner was really good! I have no food porn for you guys or anything because they are poops. SORRYYY.

And then we got a call from Mimi saying they were lost on Main Street. Of course! So Seth and Jackie went to look for them.

Once they got back, I noticed Troy was crying because he lost his monkey stuffed animal on Buzz. Well, he didn’t really lose it.

It kinda got sucked up under the tracks…

So he dropped it when they were loading and Mimi didn’t know what to do so they just went on with him screaming and crying. Yeah…

Mimi asked when they got off to look for it, but they couldn’t do anything about it, so BYE BYE MONEY!!!

Troy was a tad upset…

But when they got back, Seth and Jackie said TO MAKE TROY FEEL BETTER, they were going on BTMR.

And then wanted me to come with them because they didn’t know how to get there.

I was like “ummm…FINE.”

First of all, I REALLY didn’t want to go, second of all, I was worried about missing the parade, and third of all, I KNEW TROY WASN’T GETTING ON. He is an inch too short, and I KNEW that wasn’t going to fly. But, maybe he would be tall enough. I didn’t know. I didn’t have a tape measure with me to measure him, cause I never do! WHY WOULD I?!

I wasn’t so sure about how this would go.

So the four of us dodged our way through the crowds.

And then we made it to BTMR.

FOUR CMS WERE STANDING OUTSIDE THE STAND BY LINE.

FOUR.

THEY SAW TROY and let us right into the queue. Didn’t bother to measure him or anything. Interesting…

We got right up to the loading zone and a CM pulled us aside, asking to measure Troy. Awesome.

She measured him and he was about 1.5 inches too short. Didn’t see that coming.

And then Seth flipped out.

He said “HE WENT ON EARLIER TODAY AND THEY LET HIM ON!”

Ummmmm…NOT HE DID NOT YOU IDIOT.

Totally lying to the CM who was telling him VERY nicely that Troy couldn’t go on.

And I DO NOT think it is right to flip out and LIE to a CM. Troy NEVER went on earlier.

It is a CM’s job to make sure everyone is tall enough. If Troy went on, something could happen! It wouldn’t be safe. She was just doing her job!

So when the next train came, the four of us walked right over and exited.

Now, I think the FOUR CMs at the front should have measured Troy. They saw him walk right up and I would THINK they would have known if someone was too short or not.

Then Seth and Jackie said they wanted to try to get him on Splash.

I was in shock.

WHY THE CRAP WOULD YOU LOSERS DO THAT?!?!?!

It is the EXACT same height requirement as BTMR, so OF COURSE they weren’t going to let him on!!!!

I was like “I’m out of here.” And walked back to Main Street. I was NOT missing the parade ESPECIALLY after waiting so long.

I was just going to let them find their way back. If they wanted to see the parade, fine. If they missed it, I could have cared less.

I got back to our spot and three people came walking up 10 minutes later.

“They wouldn’t let him on!”

WELL DUH.

I just rolled my eyes and tried to enjoy where I was. My home. I wasn’t going to let some idiots ruin the party!









Then I heard the music.

THE ONCE UPON A CHRISTMASTIME PARADE WAS STARTING!!!

I love the 2nd picture in this update Meg! So pretty!

I want to go to the MVMCP again, with just us. It was too crazy trying to hold spots for everyone, and having to sit for like 2 hours before the parade to get that spot.

AND, I want to be at one that is not sold out!!! Crowded!

I posted another one like that back in November. I could post it now… people would probably wonder why I am posting Christmas pictures in February, but whatever.
I got that sweatshirt for about 10 bucks.

The Once Upon a Christmastime Parade PART 1!

So basically these next three updates will be all pictures because I am a future photopass photographer and I take five zillion pictures of everything. So yeah. ENJOY Y’ALLLLL!

At about 8:35, the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade started coming right down Main Street.


THERE WAS A SNOWSTORM GOIN ON!




You guys see all of those CMs with those lightsaber things goin’ up and down Main Street?

Well how could you miss them, really!

We had this AWFUL CM that kept coming up to us and kept telling Jackie that Troy had to be behind the rope. Um, HE WAS. Seriously, I know it is for safety, but it wasn’t like he was going to go out into the middle of the street and do something. He sat there and waved to all of the characters and he was having SUCH a great time. And this crabby CM came up to us THREE TIMES. And she kept yelling at a bunch of other people too. HOW RUDE LOSER.





BUT JUST LOOK AT POOH IN THE BACKGROUND. STOP THE CUTENESS.


MICKEY AND MINNIE I LOVE YOU!!!! …but ewww. It’s Duffy. Sorry to the Duffy lovers out there, but Duffy and I…let’s just say we don’t have a good relationship.




“Look Troy! It’s Donald Duck!” –Jackie
No. Just no. Just leave now.




THAT’S DONALD DUCK YOU IDIOT.


These guys were SO cool!




HIIIII CHIP!!!!


THE DWARVES!!!!




My favorite princess and her prince ♥




Cinderella and Prince Charming… I wonder if he had bobby pins and hairspray in.

The Once Upon a Christmastime Parade PART 2!

(here are five zillion more pictures for you guys)





Hi third favorite princess!!! You look very nice in your Christmas dress!




Goofy’s float was SO cool. It was themed like his candy factory and if I remember correctly, it smelled like candy! I could be totally wrong about that. I don’t even know. GO GOOGLE OR BING IT OR SOMETHING.






I took A TON of pictures of it for some reason. Don’t ask.



“Who is THAT?!” –Jackie.
Excuse me while I go DIE.
IT IS HORACE HORSECOLLAR YOU LOSER. GET WITH THE PROGRAM.




AND THAT IS CLARABELLE COW.










THE SOLDIERS SO AMAZING DYING.








The soldiers were INCREDIBLE. They were definitely a highlight of the parade!



IT IS SANTA AND HIS REINDEER!!!!! *screams like a five year old*




EEEEEEEEE!!!! ONE OF MY HEROS (not…)!!!!!


The end (:


Seriously, the parade was INCREDIBLE. The floats were awesome, there are great characters, the music is catchy (duh), the toy soldiers, and SANTA IS IN IT. Between this and the fireworks (we will get to that soon), the party is worth it! I know a lot of people say the Boo To You Parade is better (I have not seen it…YET!), but you can’t go wrong with an awesome Christmas parade! We enjoyed it all VERY MUCH.
