I don't know how I got behind.

for arrival day and getting into your room.

You got a lot done your first morning at MK (isn't the new Dumbo area awesome?; I love it).

Sorry Zoe's experience at BBB wasn't very good, but she looks absolutely lovely.

Merry Christmas.

Your room location at POFQ sounds great!

Good tip about going to the Dumbo area via Tomorrowland!

Too bad that Zoe's BBB experience was a bit less than magical. Her pictures look beautiful though!

I have felt in the past like I had been forgotten by a castmember at Disney. How annoying it happened to you and poor Zoe! Her pictures are pretty, though.

So sorry I missed two updates. Really? What is wrong with me?

First - Merry belated Christmas to you and your family.

Second - Zoe looks absolutely STUNNING in those pictures. Even though her (FGIT?) was not very adept and took forever, I can not tell her hair piece is crocked at all and she looks so lovely. And her dress is so pretty. What wonderful pictures to cherish forever. So sorry the wait was horrendous.

I think you are and I on the same wavelength - I had the exact same meal at WPE. And I started my first full day in the world at Dumbo this October (spoiler alert )

I love your room at POFQ. So glad the location was awesome. I am not a big fan of ground floor rooms either, but sometimes they can be convenient. I also love the corner rooms with the extra window.

Crowd levels looked nice and low for you, which is always nice! I'm sorry that your BBB experience wasn't perfect - that is a lot of time wasted. Zoe really looks cute though, and you got some great shots of her.

I know I struggle at times to break routine... and Kira struggles even more (I think) So she really just HAD to go through the castle since that is how we have always done our morning at MK or DL. I think had we wanted to make it to maybe IASM or Mickey's Philharmagic then it would have been a better route, but you are right - going counter clockwise to get to dumbo is the way to go!!!

But the photos turned out really cute. You have a very sweet princess on your hands there.
Thank you, I think she looks cute no matter what. Waiting though, really wasn't a huge deal. Zoe was able to spend that extra time really looking over the options card. So I didn't need to have patience... it was all good.

It was! Actually, I think we always tend to get locations that I am seriously happy about. I always worry, but in the end it is always PERFECT

I wouldnt say it wasn't magical. Her FGIT was super nice and tried her best to make things wonderful. I think she just was a bit behind in her training.

It was a long first day, but it is so worth it just to be in WDW. And... it isn't that things went wrong. It was actually a wonderful trip. It just changed how we thought of things and in the end has impacted us in some ways more than other trips have.

Zoe was fine. She tends to go with the flow most of the time. I am not sure if we were forgotten or if others were just showing up later for their reservations than we did. In other words, maybe their reservations were actually ahead of ours, but we checked in before them.

FGIT is a Fairy Godmother In Training (I think you were wondering, right?) The dress is a Ruphunzel wedding dress. I think it is one of my favorites. The pictures are something to cherish for sure!

It was so convenient. I would have thought that it would be a pain to have our room right there, but it wasn't. Now... that may have been a different story had there been loud people wandering about at all hours, but it was perfect when we were there.

Crowds are always lower in the morning. Later in the day, I am sure they were worse. Overall though, you are right they were not bad. Especially compared to last December in WDW or July 4th weekend in DLR. I think I needed lower crowds after those trips.

Wasn't too bad with the time... it was in fact what I had planned on, so we didn't miss out on anything.
