WE ARE HERE TO CHANGE THE WORLD Part II

Monday, January 9, 2012

WE ARE HERE TO CHANGE THE WORLD Part II







That meant it was time for Captain EO!! Again. Bouncing off the walls. Clearly, we can tell I planned the wearing of this shirt.











I love Michael Jackson.









I have watched Captain EO on YouTube...and I have it saved onto a DVD I burned. But Michael Jackson in 3D is 456345634535436 times better. Perfect. The closest I will get to seeing him live </3
Obviously, I loved Captain EO. I was singing along, tearing up. The usual.

Let's keep a secret. I was very tempted to steal the glasses. Actually I was going to come back to Epcot utilizing my Park Hopper to just watch it again and steal borrow them. But. I never got a chance to break away from the group to go to a park on my own..because it was like they couldn't figure out what to do if my mom or I left them...yet, I was a b**** for planning things?

After seeing the king, and no not the lion one.. I went to the gift shop because I needed Captain EO merch!

Jumping fountains FTW



Cha-ching!



I got a poster, a Captain EO t-shirt, A Captain EO shirt so I can be like Mike, and a key chain for my good MJ-fan friend, Jackie.
Ship that back to the room please. There are so many perks of being a DVC member that I have just not experienced before until this trip because I was too young to care or even need to know.

Next up, World Showcase. After some cute pictures in front of the Fountain of Nations and Spaceship Earth.







Btw, sorry not sorry for all the Captain EO spam

A quick trip around the world part I

Monday, January 9, 2012

A quick trip around the world part I

First country we visited was Mexico. We stopped by Cantina de San Ángel to get some food.





Well some of us. For some reason, I was not hungry. Which is so weird, I'm always hungry. I did sample some chips though.
I need to get these tacos next time I go though, they look delicious.





Then we went to the gift shop and put on the sombreros





Next was Norway. We didn't really visit Norway for long. But why oh why did I not learn about school bread until months after?? I need to get one next time as too.

Next, China.







We stopped in the gift shop. One of the other people bought chopsticks for his family. I should buy chopsticks. But I am the only one who knows how to use them in my house...
I didn't find Mulan either :'(
I have never met my favorite* Princess

Outpost.
Omg there were so many cute animal things! I love giraffes! And zebras. And holy animal print ears batman!!!!



Germany.





We were in the gift shop for sometime. One of the other people as having a hard time deciding what shoot glass to buy. I looked at all the pretty things I can't afford.







Next, Italy! My homeland.
Actually, many of these countries represent my nationalities, but Italy is the country I want to visit the most.








Japan.







We were in Japan for a looong time. That shop is like never ending. One of the other people and myself tried on a kimono. Of course there is a picture but not on my camera



I spotted this in the koi pond after one of the other people ate some sushi




America. Um, we breezed by America, since we live in America lol.
I don't know why I am going through this part of the report so quickly, we spent a majority of the day in World Showcase. There is still more to come though

WHY DID I NOT EAT IN EPCOT?!?!!
Oh, that's right, my bank is a little derpy and my money didn't hit my account yet But that meant more money for merch

That Pooh one was a 3D, but some of the 2D ones had 2 different images depending what side you viewed it from

A quick trip around the world part II

Monday, January 9, 2012

A quick trip around the world part II

Morocco







One of the other people got a henna tattoo.

Next was France. We saw a Character meet and greet spot for Belle and the Beast. So we hopped online. We opted to wait the extra 10/15 minutes for the Beast!



Personally, I thought this Belle had way too much makeup on. She kinda looked scary.

France. One of the fashion capitals of the world.



We headed into Boulangerie Patisserie for a snack. I got my first ever Disney chocolate croissant. Which, I have been on my list of things I need to bake since like forever now. That with like a billion other things...



Then we headed to a shop that was where the KidCot stop in France was, so we obviously colored some Duffy's.





After coloring time, we started to make our way to the UK.





We ran into Marie on our way.





UK

We all piled into the Phone booth.



We went into a gift shop. Paddington



Then we headed over to Canada.
At this point it was dark and getting colder and our Soarin' FP was coming up. So we headed back to Future World

Maybe the complaining took away from my experience


So we headed back to Future World to go ride Soarin'



The Christmas tree was still up









And lol jk, I lied. Our FP was for 6:45. Pretty sure we got there around 7:45 though.

Soarin' was another new thing for me. We got the last row, unfortunately. I feel like maybe the dangling feet took away a little bit from the experience. I also got yelled at by one of the other people once it was over because she got scared. Sorry, I told you THREE times I do not know if it is "scary" because I have never been on it.......

Once we were finished with Soarin', we headed over to the Epcot Character Spot because the wait was only 20 minutes now.













After we met the Fab Five, I looked at my watch and realized that we had enough time to go on Spaceship Earth before Illuminations started! But all of the other people said they wanted ice cream. So we went into Fountain View Ice Cream. Only one person got ice cream...



And I don't know why it took him like 20 minutes to eat the ice cream.
We could have been riding Spaceship Earth. But no. After the 20 minute ice cream eating escapade, we went into Club Cool for some of Bev. Tehe



It was about 8:45 by now and we went to go get a good spot for Illuminations. But two of the other people started complaining that they were cold. We ran into Mouse Gears for them to look for sweatshirts. But according to them everything was too expensive.....
Two of the other people and I started running towards the Disney Traders location, and I still had a not so great view... The other two, we lost temporarily. I am pretty sure they were still complaining about being cold..

I have a lot of pictures, but I will only torture you with 2, since...you know I didn't have a good spot..





After Illuminations was over, we all headed out of the park toward to bus stop. I loved that all the CMs waved goodbye to us with Mickey hands.





We got back to our house, I took a shower and then told mom about my adventure in Epcot. We watched some Stacy and all the rest of the awesome Disney looped TV stuff. While we were watching Stacy we spotted something though. It was like 2 seconds of screen time but we saw one of the people in the video at AK had on

Leopard Print Mickey ears. We both shouted out at the same time something like "OMG WE NEED TO GET YOU THOSE EARS!!"
So there was our new mission

We stayed up late watching more Disney Resort TV. I probably fell asleep around 12:30/1 am... It was ok though I didn't need to get up that early the next day

CHOCOLATE CROISSANT OMG OMG. Sorry, I was in heaven there for a second…

Your Duffy (who is mean, rude, etc., etc.) came out great!

Oh Marie ♥ She was my all time favorite character when I was little. I loved her so much.

I HATE being in the second or third row on Soarin’. The dangling feet DEFINITELY take away from the experience.

I really don’t understand why people take so crappin’ long to eat ice cream!

Wow. Your trip just sounds EXACTLY like mine. All the complaining really gets old.

I really have to whip up my own soon. With a lot of chocolate
Thanks! I think he is the only one of the 2 who made it back to NY. He is on my bedroom door.

Omg, I thought maybe there was something wrong with me that I wasn't like blown away by it like everyone else is.

All of Blizzard Beach in 3 hours and 3 trips down Summit Plummet


Today, I woke up again at 6 after falling asleep sometime between 12 and 1am. I don't even know. I got up and ate some breakfast and charged my phone and went on Twitter. Today we had extra time in the morning since Blizzard Beach doesn't open until 10. I took some more pictures of my beautiful house.





oh kitchen island <3





I am OBSESSED with this lamp!

Once some other people got up, I took a walk with one of them to fill up our mugs and pick up our merch we bought yesterday. At 9:20 we made our way to the bus stop and got on the AK/BB bus. We got to BB before they opened. I got my ticket and then we went and rented a locker to share. Once we put out stuff in the locker, my first goal of the day was Summit Plummet.

I bought a water proof camera last summer pretty much just for this occasion. Actually I have always wanted to take pictures underwater, but it was so fun to have a camera at BB



I have only been on it once, 10 years ago and I was dying to get on it again. I have always loved water parks and big water slides. One of the other people and I took the ski lift up, and we got off and walked on.





When I was editing photos after my trip, I noticed that it is actually me and the other person at the top in this picture
I got a little nervous once I was at the top I guess because it had been so long since I was last one it. But as soon as I pushed off any feelings of nervousness were replaced with exhilaration and joy. I LOVE Summit Plummet. Love love love. Everything about it. I love water parks in general but that is the best slide ever ever ever.

The other person and I met up with the rest of the group. We stopped by where all these hula hoops were and played around for a few minutes. Then some CM came over and was talking to us and he offered to take our picture. He wasn't a PhotoPass CM but he was having an awful lot of fun having a photo shoot with us. Here is the best picture



Hopefully I did not blind y'all..

After SP, we all got tubes and hit Cross Country Creek.





If my mom was with us, this is where she would have been all day.
We almost went around one full loop, but got off near Runoff Rapids. I think we each went down different tubes/slides 3 times.





Next we headed over to Teamboat Springs. I went on this last time with a friend and my mom, and I remember thinking it was kind of boring. But this time was so much fun! More people help make it go faster



After, I think we road up the ski lift to head over to the Snow Stomers.









Hello there

The mats got jammed on their conveyor belt so we were stuck waiting for mats. I heard "HEY DOUBLE DIPPERS!" so many times from the safety spiels..



After, we went and chilled and road the waves in Melt-Away Bay for a while. Then we headed over to the Toboggan Racers so we could all race each other. Then after racing, most of us went over to ride Slush Gusher. I don't think this hurt as much as the first time I rode it when I was 12.
After Slush Gusher, I convinced one of the other people to go on Summit Plummet. 3 of us headed back up to Summit Plummet

After a second ride down, I really wanted to go on again. No one else wanted to join me. So I made my way up to the top solo. I decided to take the stairs. I ran them. Vaca workout right there. This time I wanted to try and record my trip down. I succeed. If you want to watch it, here it is. I suggest turning down the volume...



After my 3rd ride down, it was 1 o'clock (for all you math wizards, that was 3 hours in the park) and we were done. We road everything. We decided to head back to OKW. But first we headed to the gift shop for some reason



WHY OH WHY DID I NOT BUY THIS TOWEL Or the dress that was the same print. Stupid.



We made our way to the bus stop and got on. I called my mom to tell her we were heading back because we rode all the slides. she was at the main pool enjoying all the (kiddie) activities. She won a prize playing Goofy Bingo and told us to come join the party

OKW grand villas omg ♥♥

The view from the snow stormers is AWESOME. Kind of reminds me of the view from the top of Everest.

Ok ok. I have officially become obsessed with Summit Plummet. Like, OMG. I know I already tweeted you my thoughts on it but I want all of the non-awesome people that are not on Twitter but are on here to read my thoughts. (did that sentence even make sense...? I don't make sense, so probably not...)
Holy crap, like, I NEED TO GO ON IT. It’s like the most perfect ride—well water ride—for me. I’m tellin’ ya, I need need need to go to Blizzard Beach to ride it. My mother will never in her life go on it, but it’s not like she’s gonna stop me. IT LOOKS AMAZING.

More OKW pics are coming up / need to be added because it is so beautiful

It is the most amazing thing ever! Just bring your mom and let her ride the lazy river like mine and you can go ride SP until your little hearts content
