I was LOL at your confusion of whether you made rope drop or were with Cynthia!

I really liked the new Little Mermaid ride too! We were able to see it in soft opening in October - I'm trying to remember if this is the day we bumped into you two by the BOG menu sign. Maybe it's yet to come in your TR. Then again, with your memory issues, you might not remember either!

I've never tried LTT. I think I would like it though. One of these days! There's plenty of restaurants left to try.

Not civil? Boo.

Looks like 10 minutes in the picture. Not too shabby!

Yum! Excellent choice. That Cynthia must be pretty smart or something.

I'm really impressed with all the details in the new Fantasyland. Looks like the Imagineers were really on their game.

And beautiful Longwood pictures!

Congratulations to Nick! I'm sure that you're one proud Mom!

Man, you really lucked up that morning.....Space Mountain with no wait, changing your ADR and getting to see the new Fantasyland! I can't wait to see it "in person" when we are there in May.

Well, I know there was bus to WL back in 2011... I don't know about during the party hours or not though.



Congratulations to Nick on his college acceptances. It looks like he'll have a lot of good options to choose from. Take advantage of the time to get in plenty of visits and make a good decision!

Sometimes its nice to have a few more people in the queue just to slow things down. I really try to be aware of slowing down too much to the point where I obstruct the person behind me.
I know what you mean, but great effort anyway! I really love what they've done with the theming around that ride!


Great pictures of the new Fantasyland. I'm glad you were able to get in there and spend so much time in the area during the preview period!

Congrats to Nick! It is pretty great that he seems to have his pick of schools. DH went to school for electrical engineering as well, although after school, that's not what he really went into and not what he does on a daily basis. Good luck to him with whatever route he chooses!

On to the updates...I really love your updates because with the way you take pictures, I just feel like I'm on a walking tour of whatever area you are in! And lucky for me, today you took me to the Fantasyland expansion! After reading about it in MANY MANY trip reports, I really couldn't be more excited to get there and see it for myself finally!

I have read some not so enthusiastic reactions to the Little Mermaid ride, but I think the expectations for FLE were SO high that "just" a dark ride does not seem all that great. Seeing it for the first time in the context of Disneyland was really great for me, because it didn't necessarily have all that hype around it so I could enjoy it for what it is...a great dark ride! I'm glad you enjoyed it too! And I can't believe you would insult Ursula like that! I thought everyone was trying to copy that "gigantic jowls" look she has going on!

Congratulations to Nick! I'm sure he'll make the best choice.

I your pictures of the new Little Mermaid ride. I can't wait to be able to see it myself in June.

The Longwood Garden pictures were beautiful!

You went for your run and I got to see the opening show for the first time ever. We both rode SM, but separately and met after that.
I still only vaguely remember this. I mean - it makes sense. I think I wanted to go for a run because I knew the next day was moving day and I wouldn't. But now that I think about, I really do remember being on Space Mountain myself. Seriously - I am such an airhead.

The whole area is really beautiful and the Ariel ride was really well done. I am so glad we timed our trip with a soft opening.

Thank you and it's so true. I find hidden Mickey's in the craziest places. One morning I found one in my salad that I packed for lunch.

Coffee in the Wilderness

Now while Mary Ellen got up and went for a run, I decided to start my day the way well, the way I start most days on vacation.

With coffee on the verandah!



We had a lovely view of...

A service road



And a path that I though led around the back side of the villas to the pool.



I was on a mission. The opening show and rope drop at the MK. Neither of which I had ever done! Mary Ellen had wanted to go for a run and had seen/done both many a time before. Our plan was to meet up at some point after, whenever she got back and headed over. So off I went!
I’d seen the path around the back of the villas and was convinced that I could cut through. NOT! I ended up getting myself locked out of the exit stairwell and having to go back into the villa lobby to get out the other side. Oops! I do love the walk to the boat; it is one of my absolute favorite things about WL.







Did I make it in time? Cutting it close…


Well, yes I did!





Getting closer



YAY!

















Someone's coming!
