They were yelling at everyone when DD and I went to get a pic with Tink and Periwinkle in January. I agree that they were somewhat rude. Perhaps they have had some kind of troulbe in the past ?? I dunno.

If you have the time, watch the fairy movies. They really are cute and I think most of them are on instant play on Netflix. They are very pretty movies, too. Lots of color and great animation.

Periwinkle is Tink's Sister! I used to think the Fairy movies were silly- until my ODD fell in love with Tink and loves to watch them! I really enjoy them now. However, I wish they would explain the connection to Peter Pan at some point. I think that they could do a story about how Tink and Peter met and it would be a cute movie!

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!
It is very pretty! I love me some castle. I guess I have to watch the fairy movies. everyone seems like they love them!

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.
Hi Scott! Yes it was veryy nice to do a solo trip. A little lonely at times but it was nice. I could definitely do it again. We are going back in December too! I am jealous you are staying there. That is one of my dream resorts.

I am not sure why they felt the need to yell at me! It is basically impossible for any castle shot to be bad.

That is weird that they yelled at people when you were there. They must like try to maintain secrecy and not let you look inside before you are allowed in? I dunno, it was weird. Thanks for the recommendation on the fairy movies. Maybe I can start up a netflix trial!

Be Our Guest Lunch Part 1 <3


After the fairies we were going to have lunch at Be Our Guest since it was time for Emmebear and Emme to leave!

We walked through the hub to the right of the castle and we knew that a show was going to be starting soon. Emmebear said we better hurry because if it starts Emme is going to want to watch the show.

We made it halfway across the road and then all of a sudden music starts! The show was starting.

She was right: emme wanted to watch the show and got so excited to watch it. So we went over to watch it and she was enthralled. It was funny.











The sky was gorgeous. I was so worried about the weather this day but it was a perfect day. Warm but not scorching and sunny with a bit of clouds.

We made it to BOG and the line wrapped around the entire drawbridge past the menu. I could not believe it was that long.



I was sooo excited to eat here. I love finally experiencing these things for myself.

However we had a problem. Emme was having her first meltdown. She was crying because she wanted this light up Minnie where her skirt spun and lighted up. We just let her cry in her stroller and knew she would get over it.

But the line attendant said we couldn't take our stroller in. Emmebear told him that Emme was having a meltdown and was about to fall asleep and they let her take the stroller in line.

Luckily she stopped crying and then turned into a happy girl! We just dropped the stroller off at the entrance.

This area was very cool. I loved the water under the bridge and the sounds of the forest.



These guys were cool and fun to photograph.







We finally made our way to the entrance after about 25 minutes.



I can't believe people wait this long for a quick service entrance.







Emme took some pictures in front of this statue.



This creepy guy greets you inside.



And this beautiful stained glass is to the left.



Then you wrap around to the right through the area with the knights where there are menus to read from.



We probably waited about 35 minutes to order. For some reason I thought you ordered on your own but they have people to order for you when you get in.



I am not sure what I was doing with Emme but I was making her laugh hysterically. It was funny.

Next up: Our Dining Experience

Be Our Guest Lunch Part 2 <3


I ordered the croque monsiuer with the french fries and the strawberry cupcake.

We ate in the library room. I liked that room because it was the brightest and it had comfortable cushioned banquettes where you can sit and relax.









I liked how we were still served the christmas cups.







The sandwich was very good hot. It was served with a bechamel sauce inside which is like a cheese i think. It was good and tasty. It got a little hard when it was cooler but I still enjoyed it. I wish I could have got something different besides french fries. I didn't eat any of them. I am not a disney french fry fan.

The cupcake was definitely hard to open. Those wrappers are impossible to take off. My strawberry dropped on the ground





It was very good and light and perfect size. There was a delicious strawberry mousse inside that was my favorite part.

After we ate we toured the rest of the restaurant. I loved the paintings and drawings in the library room. I wish you could purchase copies.



We walked into the ballroom next.



I looked down at the beautiful rose tiled floor and noticed that there was huge chunks of tiles missing already!!!



I couldn't believe it! This restaurant is a few months old and there is already floor tiles coming out? It was a lot too!!!







I liked the rose room the best but it is very dark and I light to see what I eat.







I absolutely love this mosaic when you walk out. I think it might be my favorite feature.





They were clearing out lunch so the line was closed.



One of me and Emme in front of the mosaic.



All in all we had a great time here. I can't wait to try it again.

I might be wrong, but I BET that eventually they will be self-service ordering, because I remember reading that about it at first. But I think right now the crowds are so crazy they are trying to make it as easy as possible, so instead of helping those guests that cannot use a computer, just put an attendant there to make that part run smoothly!

I can't wait to try lunch at BOG! We loved our dinner there. I had the same cupcake!!

I can not wait to try Be Our Guest. It looks lovely inside. Hopefully they have fixed that tile floor. Such a shame about them coming unglued already.

Saying Goodbye :(


After lunch it was time to say goodbye to my new friends! It went so quickly but we had a great time together. I am going back in a month to visit them again. I just bought an annual pass too!!! Yikes! I am scared of the amount of money I am going to spend this next year.

Back to the show

We wanted to ride one last ride before they left. They have never been on Haunted Mansion so that is what we decided on. I was a little worried about Emme being scared but she seemed like she was a brave girl.

I took this pic in the graveyard to show my sister because her boyfriend's name is Dave. However I never showed her because they just broke up again last week for the third time! He is an idiot and broke up with her three times but she got back with him each time. I hope they are done for good this time.





Emme did get a little scared in the stretching room and was crying a little. She was fine on the ride though. She was a brave girl!

After this ride I walked them out of the park. We stopped in the Emporium and she bought me pajamas. Well i bought them but she used her discount! Picture of those coming later!

Then they left That was sad. I was upset because I was all alone now!

So I went back into the emporium to look around! I found this cute shirt that my sister would like.



After that I went into the Town Square Theatre because I wanted to meet Rapunzel! There wasn't too long of a line only 15 minutes.





There was a bunch of foreign families in line! It is cute watching foreign kids try to communicate to the characters.

The CMs came in and were calling someones name and I could have sworn they said my last name. I asked them if they meant my last name but they didn't come back so I don't think they were calling me. I was worried for a minute though.

I met Rapunzel and she was cute! She spent a long time with me. I appreciated that.



She said we were twins because our names started with R. Then we posed the same way. I talked to her about her new bathrooms that were being built and asked if she was happy to have a new home. I told her I listen to her soundtrack all the time! Haha!

When I came out this is what I saw!

An Annual Pass??!?! Woooohooo!!! I'm totally jealous!

I went back and forth on Cortlyn on the Haunted Mansion, but we didn't ride it this trip. I figure we'll catch it on the next trip… whenever that may be! haha
Yikes on that group outside Townhall!
