Joining in!

Awesome that you were able to get down there a few days before your conference. Love the Osbourne lights pics, I thought they turned out great!

You are right, little Emme is a beautiful girl, such a cutie!

Love the Little Mermaid pics, too! Can't wait to be able to get on that one (unfortunately not till 2014! )

Time to Adventure!


After the Teacups we decided to head to Adventureland. The whole morning Emme kept saying she wanted to "Adventure", which meant she wanted to go to Adventureland. So we finally went!

First I got some castle shots. Look how sparkly the blue roof is in spots. I have never noticed this before my November trip.





First Emme and her mommy decided to go on the Magic Carpets since they have never done it before. I didn't feel like it so what better way to pass the time than to have a Citrus Swirl!

There was some people behind me who weren't sure what a Citrus Swirl so I explained it to them and told them it was delicious!



This was still good but wasn't AS enjoyable because I had a pretty bad canker sore that would not go away and as you know OJ kinda hurts canker sores! It still tasted good though.

I took some artsy shots while waiting for the ride to be over.







We then decided to go on Pirates, one of my favorite Disney rides! Emmebear hadn't ever been on it before.







This guy creeps me out!!! I always look right up at his hair leg with nasty toenails and I get grossed out.

My favorite scene!



When we were leaving Adventureland we saw the Fairies and the line was about 40 minutes but it was something different and we wanted to meet them.

When we were up to the beginning there was a really cute leaf that shaped the doorway with lights.



Apparently we were supposed to stand behind a line and I wasn't standing behind it so I basically got yelled at by the CM. It was kind of rude actually! I felt like I was treated like a child.

We finally got to go in and the area was soooo cute! I can not believe how in depth this scene is. It was sooo elaborate.





Tink was cute with Emme.



I liked meeting Tink too!



Next we met this other fairy and I have no idea who she is. I don't watch those new Fairy movies so the only fairy I know is Tinkerbell.



I told her she was bedazzled because she was sooo sparkly! Her skin was so sparkly! She was pretty!

Hmm I don't know how I feel about Ariel's bodysuit. I've seen a few pics where it looks a bit weird and rumpled in all the wrong areas.

I love the idea of the kids play area!!! Such a godsend for parents!
Yeah the bodysuit was weird. I was just looking at someone elses pics and that ariel didn't have a bodysuit, she just had a nude bra under the shells. The detail is amazing. It is a really nice addition.

I liked LeFou's brew too, but I didn't like the foam on top!

Aww, Dumbo! I still have to ride the new Dumbo, in fact, I think the only time I've ever been on Dumbo was my first trip when I was 7!
I sure felt like it when I sat next to her. There seemed to be quite a bit of room on the bench. I don't know why I liked the foam. It wasn't bad on its own but there didnt' complement each other.

Just like me regarding Dumbo! The first time I rode Dumbo as an adult was this past November.

thanks for posting! Isn't Emme adorable?? She is sooo cute. Her little smile is so precious. Well you will have lots to get excited about then! Hopefully the roller coaster will be finished too.

The solo part was hard. I definitely missed a companion the 2nd part of my trip. Having Emmebear there was great. I knew I had to go on a trip though because I was getting free airfare. It was great!!

I really think all the lights on the castle make it sparkle during the day. It's so pretty, day and night!

Ugh, can't stand rude CMs.

I confess, I recently watched all the fairy movies and I kinda loved them! They were so much cuter than I thought. So the other fairy is Periwinkle!

Okay onto this report. LOL
Solo trips are the best. No one to hold you back or complain. You do what you want to do. Love it.
Starring Rolls is so good. The peanut butter cupcake is really good.
Great pics of the Osborne Lights.
Ooh Star Tours, my favorite at DHS.
That tree in the lobby is gorgeous. Cannot wait to stay there in December.
Love the fog photos. Looks great.
CP was a letdown to us the last we went. :O(
When we met Ariel she only had her top on with something under it and no other thing so maybe it was cold when you went or they got complaints.
Completely agree about Lefou’s Brew.
Looking forward to reading more.

I love how the castle looks in pictures! That blue almost matches the skies.

I always look at that pirate's nasty toenails too! YUCK!

Ugh Why do some people think it's ok to talk to everyone like they are a little kid?

She's Periwinkle. Peri, for short. My daughter and wife, "Pixie" and "Tink" to me, are huge Fairies' fans, so I've seen all the movies multiple times.
