Ah excellent! Thank you so much!

Yaaay for having another trip planned! So happy for you!

I would love to try September but my daughter likes to get set with school. We've been in October when the crowds are phenominal and they haven't covered too much in school yet. Just perfect - you feel like you have the parks to yourself. You're going at an amazing time.

Yay for a mini life update! Haha!
Looks like things are going pretty good for you guys, awesome that Presley's staying over for a bit, and hey, baby sitting can be fun!

So excited for your fall trip!! We'll be there the 11 to the 19th, so our dates work perfectly haha! We'll probably end up at some of the same parks in there too, though we are park hopping a lot, lol. Our days look like this so far:
11: arrive
12: mk
13: ak/mnsshp
14: dhs
15: sleep in a bit, then back to AK
16: epcot
17: mk/mnsshp
18: kttk tour, lunch at Epcot, end day at mk
19: depart
And I will stay the extra day solo if I don't get cast in Spring, I'll hit up the audition on the 19th and leave the next day haha.
Hope we can meet up somewhere in there!

Aw thank you! I'm totally excited. I spend most of my days at work planning my trip!

I can see her point about missing school right after it starts. I was pretty OCD about my grades so I probably wouldn't want to either. But October sounds great too! Maybe that's what we'll do in 2014

I love when Presley comes to visit! She's growing too fast though!

I enjoy babysitting. I did want a day to sleep but I can't complain. She's the best baby and we snuggle all day. Plus her parents pay me well.

I'm so excited for the Fall trip and that our dates are so perfectly aligned!

We're gonna use park hoppers this trip!

Our current plans sit at:

10: arrival/ DTD
11:HS
12: AK/ hop to MK
13: MK/hop to DHS at night
14: off day! (I know- crazy!)
15: waterpark
16: Epcot
17: MNSSHP
18: MK
19: waterpark
20: HHN at Universal
21: DHS for EMH, then AK, then MK, then back to Pop to depart

Our plans definitely match up for at least part of the day on the 12, 16 and 18 and we'll both be at the Halloween party on the 17th! Plenty of opportunities to meet up in there somewhere yay!

Also, totally jealous that you are doing the KTTW tour!

Magic Kingdom day yay!


So we woke up bright and early the next morning excited because we were going to Magic Kingdom for the first time this trip! AND we had a surprise because Jen, Rick and Presley were up too!

They still didn't make it to the park with us.

We were literally finishing eating in the Pop food court when they walked in to start eating. I was okay(ish) with waiting to eat with them but DBF said we'll just meet them at the park because he wanted to catch the welcome show too. Well okay, don't have to tell me twice.

We went out to the bus stop and saw A SWARM OF YELLOW on the line for the MK bus. That's right a BTG Luckily Pop was on top of the situation and sent two buses at once. So the BTG and some unfortunate people went on one bus and we happily headed to the other.

At 8:36, we saw

We made it through the turnstiles and bag check just in time!

And the Welcome show began.

It was amazing. I can't believe I hadn't seen it before. I cried. And was irrationally jealous of the family of the day.

As we walked in the park, I suggested we stop for a photopass picture. The man looked at me a little funny and the told me he was waiting for Marie. Duh. He offered to take our picture anyway. So we did.

It was a pretty overcast day in the MK.

Looks like we all had the same idea.

Ah can't wait for the mine train!

Then we were at ETWB.

But everyone was looking at the CM like this

DSCN0631 by RN Courtney, on Flickr

Closed. No idea when it will be open. I most definitely do not envy the CM manning ETWB that morning.

I was pretty bummed but moved on. I mean, there was really nothing to be done.

So we enjoyed the rest of FLE instead.

We decided to go meet a mermaid.

This is one of my favorite pictures from the whole trip. That look on DBF's face? Priceless. Childhood joy. An expression that only comes out on a WDW trip.

Then it seems that Jen, Rick and Presley made it to the park. I was pretty amused because we must have been taking photopass pictures at the same time because there would be one of us with Ariel and then one of them on Main Street.

Then we went on Journey of the Little Mermaid.

I was too busy focusing on the ride to take pictures apparently but it was so well done and adorable! I loved it. It helps that the Little Mermaid has been my favorite Disney movie since I was 2 so basically I was in heaven this morning!

Yay for the Bf wanting to see the rope drop show! Iím glad you guys got to see it, thereís just something so magical about that show, itís fantastic, and I cry pretty much every time.

BOO URNS for Enchanted tales being down, but yeah, at least Iím not the CM working that line, lol. Maybe Belle was running behind? Glad the rest of the FLE was up and running, itís so much less congested in the mornings! So cute with Ariel, yay! I love seeing the childhood joy on everyone elseís faces, itís what makes Disney so much more magical!

OH MY GOSH PRESLEYíS DRESS!!!! I absolutely LOVE that she has the PINK Cindy one! I love that dress, nearly considered it for Halloween! Itís so great to see kids in the costumes that you donít normally see them in!

FLE is amazing for us LM fans! The only downside I see is that Eric isnít out, which I mean, it would make for an awkward meet and greet if he was there too, like, would he sit? Would he stand? Like, weird. Lol.


And great that our plans overlap so much, lots of leway for a meet up! Especially Epcot! I won't lie, I have a complete and total plan to drink around the world this time, I've thought about it, and attempted it before, but with Kim there I'm sure it'll end up happening! I'm not sure which characters we're doing for what party yet, guess we'll find out then! Haha. MNSSHP is gonna be so great!!

Great update!


The Welcome show is pure magic isn't it? We caught it for the first time last trip, and I cried too. (also irrationally jealous of the family of the day. Some one posted a video link on my PTR and that family as FoD! It looks like an amazing experience)

Great Arial photos! We've met that friend of Ariel before-she's the one that Maddie met right after the little girl told her characters were fake. She and Eric saved the day!

So excited for you that you have another trip to plan! The planning is so much fun!


And I'll tell you and Katt that if you need costumes for MNSSHP, let me know. I don't have a ton of experience making costumes for grown ladies (with grown lady chests ) but I have made myself a few dresses, so I'm sure I could pull it off! I'd be happy to help if you guys want something special!

I'm not sure which characters we're doing for what party yet, guess we'll find out then! Haha. MNSSHP is gonna be so great!!
The RD show is so amazing!! And Disney opened Dbf eyes to the fact that he can enjoy musicals and shows! We saw Lion King twice on Broadway and Phantom of the Opera and now he says he wants to see Wicked. Not gonna lie, I'm pretty pleased And he's obsessed with the 3 pm parade in MK. If we are in MK at 3 pm, you bet your bottom dollar we will be watching the parade!

Yeah this was one of the few times I didn't envy the job of the CM But the rest of FLE was perfect! I am sad that Eric isn't out, he was so awesome last time we met him. But you are right, it would be totally awkward. And wouldn't fit with the story cause like he wouldn't be around when Ariel had fins. So I guess I see their point.

Omg omg I know. I couldn't believe when I saw her in that dress! Jen picked it out all on her own because she said every little girl would have the blue Cinderella dress! I was so proud. I'm slowly converting everyone I know to my ways When Presley met the stepsisters, they made a huge deal about it too!

Yay! Drinking around the world sounds like an awesome plan. We're not big drinkers so we probably wouldn't make it But we want to try snacking around the world again! So excited for MNSSHP!

The Welcome show is beyond amazing. I love it! And I totally watched that video from your PTR and I'm not gonna lie, I had a few tears. Totally jealous but they were so adorable.

Ah yay! I remember that story. That Ariel was amazing and that just makes her more awesome!

Oh my gosh that is so awesome of you! I will definitely let you know. That made my morning and now I know what I'll be doing at work all day: deciding on a costume!

When are you needing it for? I'm not gonna lie, I've got more than a few projects going right now. If I have time before the trip you need it for, I'll do it!

That's the best video ever isn't it?

I'd be happy to help! You've got tons of time to decide. I can probably make what ever you want in a week or two

I LOVE the look on his face meeting Ariel! Brandon gets that same childhood joy! I can't wait to see the New Fantasyland, and my kids (even Sawyer) can't wait to meet Ariel "with her tail!" Julia met her back on our first trip when she was only three years old, but then they had closed the Grotto before our next trip. All our kids can't wait!

I can see why that family was picked--talk about bright clothing and trying to be Family of the Day!

That stinks that ETWB was closed. I bet people weren't too happy about that one!

Little Mermaid ride! AHHH! Can't wait!

Presley is so adorable. Sheesh!

I'd want it to be with me by September 1st, since we leave on the 11th. My mom said she'd be able to do it though, so we're going fabric shopping when she comes down next month. Lol, after her doing my Peri costume I think anything will be easier for her haha!
