oh my god, I just thought about how funny it would be if Bruce & Amy accidentally had the wrong door. Holly just growled at me for waking her up laughing at that. I am dying.

I haven't had my big camera at Disney since New FL opened, and seeing your perfect pictures is making me regret every single time I decided not to take it. Your pictures just keep getting better and better! By the time you guys get here in October, they're going to be so wonderful & realistic, they'll be moving like in Harry Potter.

3 months & 3 weeks until you're in Florida agaaaaaaain!

Awe, man I can't believe you never got to see the Pooh waffles! They were one of the reasons that I loved CP so much! Here is my last PW in all it's glory from our trip back in '07. I had no idea that was the last time I'd ever see one! If I'd only known then. You have no idea how terribly sad this makes me.

Oh, I wanted to tell you that there's new Haunted Mansion merchandise at Disneyland! I saw it on a blog post and it reminded me of you. If you scroll down kinda far here (http://micechat.com/29336-guide-to-monstrous-summer/), they have pictures of a jewelry box, pillows, and a plate or something? (Not sure what the "Room for One More" thingie is.

Hey Dani, I read some of your PTR over the weekend and saw that you are also a big Mumford and Sons fan! They're so amazing to see live...we are doing the Gentlemen of the Road tour again this year which is basically a music festival/camping experience. If you ever get the chance to see them live...especially outdoor, I would take it!

AAAAAAAHHHHHHH HOT GASTON!! Like, I’m flustered enough with any Gaston, but I would literally be speechless around that guy, he’ is TOO GOOD LOOKING. …if that’s even a possible thing… Also, I’m totally drinking water out of the gaston cup I got at the tavern….

Ha! Hilarious Buzz ride photo. I love the Peoplemover, it’s such a nice relaxing ride through Tomorrowland! Ha! Another great ride photo!

So glad you got on and loved LM, it’s such an amazing area of MK, the whole expansion is done so amazingly, and hey, it may be the same as the one in DCA, but WDW’s queue is WAY superior! Haha Amazing photos!!
Thanks! That's a pretty good reason to love that view.

Yeah it was a wompwomp moment; I wished we had known that so we could go head off and do something else!

But yeah, that Gaston was amazingly beautiful. I drink water out of our Gaston cup, too! Hahaha. It just makes it better.

I love the PeopleMover; I could stay on it for an hour and never get sick of it.

Yeah I agree, I love that area. I'd heard the animatronics in the DCA one weren't as good as the one in DLR. I may have to check it out in DCA for comparison on our next trip!

Yes, agreed, this Gaston was pretty adorable. And thank you!

Ca-Las-Sic... LOVE IT!

Buzz produces some of the best on ride photos seriously. People look possessed. It's awesome.

Finally, I have to say that even though I'm not a huge twitter-er, I do check it from time to time and yes, The Office leaving the air is brutal. Just brutal. I couldn't even watch it last night (too painful), choosing instead to relive some of the old episodes on Netflix.
Tonight I will finally watch the finale since I don't have to work tomorrow and probably will have a tough time sleeping afterwards.
I just know it's going to be really hard...



...That's what she said.
Totally agreedo! I love that view!

Stacey is just the best. I miss her on my TV right now. Wah.

Buzz does amazing things to people's faces. I just loved Bruce's creepy face, hahaha.

OMG, yeah, it was just so brutal and sad and ugh. I am going to miss that show so, so much... I'm just glad the finale was so perfect.

PEOPLEMOVIN', were ya?! You know how I feel about that! Can you believe I've never done the obligatory foot shot?? Guess I'm a rule breaker.

I have a bad back/neck, so I totally get skipping out on Space. I don't even think I'll do it at all next trip. It has hurt me every single time, and I just give up. Not worth ruining the trip! BUT, their picture is adorable!

Oh, I can't wait to ride LM! I can't wait for the KIDS TO RIDE IT!!!!!!! They are going to be amazed, and I love to watch their amazed faces.

So much filming going on lately! Remember they were filming when we were on our way to early ADR at CP?! It's constant. But, hey, who wouldn't want to film Hot Gaston!?!

Update: The girls had ruled out Haunted Mansion this time. But then they thought about it and said they *might* ride it with Matt because it's his favorite. Maybe. Subject to change.
Main Street is a beautiful thing. Doesn't matter if it's morning or night, it's perfect.

Heck yeah I was PeopleMovin'! That's just how I roll. It's my happy place, for sure... You need to get on top of that foot shot! STAT!

Yeah, I'll probably go on it a few times next trip, but not nearly as many times as I went on it this trip! It just terrifies me beyond belief. I did get a kick out of their photo though!

The kids are going to seriously have their minds blown... It's just such an amazing ride!!

Yeah, it's an early morning type of thing, and quite interesting. Hot Gaston is darn hot though.

OH BOY. This could be a big deal. We love our Haunted Mansion, especially Matt, so hopefully the girls will go on it!

Wow, Gaston is smokin'. I don't think he is even wearing fake muscles.

I love the People Mover!! I don't blame you for sitting out Space Mountain. It always does a number on my back/neck.

Thank you! The crane is lame, but I'm used to it by now, haha. It always shows up mid-way through our trips in January! That's pretty adorable that your husband made that comment, haha, I love when husbands do that!

Yeah, he really is. UGH THAT MAN. Hahaha.

I love the PeopleMover so much! Space can be quite a wild ride! I can only ride it twice in a row, max, before I'm done. It not only bothers my back, but it also leaves me without a voice because of how much screaming I do on it, hahaha.

I really loved the Little Mermaid ride in DCA, but what I really can't wait for in MK is the queue and Eric's castle! It all looks so beautiful in pictures, I know I'm just going to be that sap crying as I walk in and see it in person for the first time.

That Space Mountain photo is amazing!!! Gotta agree with you on the TTA...since we seem to ride it a lot more now that we take Paxton, it has become one of my favorites. So relaxing.
Thank you so much! I love the early mornings in MK; it's just beautiful!

I need to go on it in DCA just to see what it's like, and how different it is! WDW's is just beautiful, the queue is amazing and the castle is so neat!

The PeopleMover is so perfect for every member of the family! We don't have any kids yet and I love it, so I hope our future kid(s) enjoy it, as well, hahaha.

Also, I definitely read the older updates before and opened a reply and never typed one because I just found it open on my ipad. So, take 2 I guess

Ah World of Color sounds amazing and having a view of it from your room sounds even more amazing. Of course, I haven't seen it yet and I kinda refuse to youtube it because I want to be completely surprised the first time I see it. But, based on what I've read, sounds completely awesome!

Your pictures of the Boardwalk at night are gorgeous! Seriously. I would give anything to be looking at that right now.

Ugh I'm sorry that lady was so rude. BUT your bag is the cutest thing ever! And she was definitely just jealous that you guys are so young and able to buy yourself nice things. So there. That would be my very-age-appropriate response!

I love that you guys wrote lyrics about waiting for the boat. I do the same thing when waiting for things or when I'm really excited about things but usually mine have like one lyric so yours sounds better than mine hahaha

Ok on to read the rest!
Hahaha I can't tell you how many times I've done that!

World of Color is really a beautiful show! I am hoping we have a view of it from our room because I would love to watch it from there. Plus, then we wouldn't have to wait an hour sitting on the ground for it, haha. But I think that's a good idea to leave it as a surprise for yourself!

I would love to be walking around the Boardwalk area right now, even if it's like 1 am there, hahaha.

That lady was lame, but I didn't let her get to me! Like you said, she was just jelly.

Hahaha, we always since the DUMBEST songs, so I'm glad we're bot alone on that. More often than not, the songs are about our dogs.

But yay for Amy feeling better. And omg I literally laughed out loud at the picture of them planking. Hahaha that is too priceless. And the thought of someone seeing them like that is even more hilarious.

WDW is the only place I will willingly get out of bed early. Seriously, every morning I snooze my alarm at least 3 times. In Disney, I'm that obnoxious morning person that everyone hates saying AH GET UP IT'S TIME TO GO NOW!

The CP food is making me hungry. I'm glad to hear you guys love it so much. We're eating there for the first time in September and I can't wait!
Ugh yeah, it was so sad to wake up with my back bothering me that much. It was pretty painful but I tried to focus on other things so I wouldn't be too miserable.

HAHAHA that whole planking thing was just ridiculous. I really wish someone had walked up to them just laying there!

Yeah, same here with WDW! I get up and get going... though I have to admit, I do love the mid-way point where we are more relaxed and get up kind of later. I mean, usually we still manage to get up by 8 at the latest, but still.

I LOVE CP! It's so good and I think you will enjoy it!!

Love the picture of you with the White Rabbit too!

Good call of sitting out of SM with your back bothering you.

I think I'm officially all caught up now (or un-officially cause I mean, I'm not sure what would make it official... maybe I'm overthinking this)!
It was a bummer; it happened like, multiple days for some reason. So weird. But that area really is beautiful!

Thank you, I thought that photo was pretty cute.

PeopleMover is a wonderful substitute for SM in my book!

So glad you're caught up, woohoo! We'll just call it official to make it sound all awesome and what not.

I showed him those pictures and he was blown away. Honestly, you could have a second career... Still working on trying to get a trip to DL for the Christmas decorations...don't know if it will happen, but Mexico is only a month away now!
Oh my gosh, no worries at all! I'm so glad you're still reading along... and thank you for the wonderful compliment, that made me really, really happy.

I hope you can get to Disneyland for Christmas!! If not this year, next! But hey, Mexico sounds wonderful, and only one month away?! WOOHOO!

HAHAHA that would have been the funniest thing ever. I'm sorry your potato dog got upset, hahahaha.

You should so bring it with you! I mean, at times it's kind of a pain to lug around but I am really happy I did during our trip. I think after not being able to use my camera in Disneyland with all of the rain, I was just glad to be getting video and photos while in Disney World finally!

BUT THANKS. I'm still learning that camera but I'm getting there. BAHAHAH Harry Potter, you crack me up.

WE WILL BE BACK AND WILL GET TO SEE YOU HOORAY!

NOPE, those are definitely no longer around! But how cute are they?! We first went in January 2011, so between 07 and 2011, they got rid of them, wompwomp. But I swear the Mickey waffles are delightful, as is the Puffed French toast!

OH THAT IS AWESOME! We actually just bought a few new HM items from the DisneyStore.com site... a blanket with the wallpaper pattern and a pillow with the wallpaper on one side, and "Tomb Sweet Tomb" on the other. I hope they keep coming out with stuff for us to buy! Haha.

Oh awesome, yes, I am a huge Mumford and Sons fan! We actually saw them live in October of 2010 here in Seattle at the Paramount Theater. I am SO thankful we got to see them in a smaller venue than what they play now, because we will probably never see them in such a small venue ever again... or well, small compared to arenas and such. It was just as they were starting to blow up, so we lucked out.

I'd love to see them outdoors though; I bet it's awesome! They were mind-blowingly amazing live, like, seriously. My friend will see them this weekend at Sasquatch and I am very jealous!

Sasquatch...so jealous as well! That would be an amazing one to see..especially in such a scenic location. One of these days Joe and I are going to have to forgo a WDW trip to make our way up to the Pacific NW...I've been a few times but he hasn't and I know he'd love it.

Seeing them outside was phenomenal they put up cool string lights and it had a totally intimate feel...I'm hoping that they will also make a stop in St. Louis on their way across the country so I can see them in a concert venue as well. Apparently I'm planning on spending all of my money on Mumford & Sons concerts...

P.S. I started my very first PTR..check it out if you're interested!

Chapter Thirty-Four: Eating a Nutella Waffle Sandwich is seriously an event in itself.
Day 6: January 22nd, 2013


After we ended our voyage under the sea, we met up with Bruce and Amy... and I saw that Gaston was meeting people! It wasn't hot Gaston, but I still thought it would be awesome to meet him. Unfortunately I missed the cut off at the end of the line, so we headed out and over to Big Thunder for some FPs!

On our way, I marveled at the new Tangled restroom area that they were working on. I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THIS IN PERSON. I have seen the photos and it's BEAUTIFUL in that area. Ugh. Restrooms or not, it's kind of amazing and I can't wait to see it in September!



We had to stop for a photo opp in Liberty Square because we'd never done it before, AND there wasn't anyone around...

I kind of love this photo of us, hahaha.



Bruce and Amy were just really sad about being jailed.



We finally got over to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and grabbed our Fast Passes!



Man, looking back, we were getting a lot done this morning and it was nice to have it not be insanely busy in the parks! Definitely nice that the MLK Jr. Weekend crowds were finally dying down a bit, because they were really cramping our style.

We still hadn't gone on Jungle Cruise yet, so we all headed over there for a little cheesy-joke fun. On our way, I stopped to take a photo of the progress on Splash Mountain. I was SO happy to see them giving it such a much-needed refurb. It was crazy to see it like this, though!



I've heard that it looks BEAUTIFUL now and so I can't wait to go on this in September. I will probably just want to ride it over and over again (much to Matt's disliking) in September, haha. He hates the drops, but loves everything else... but at least he understands why I love it so much!

Jungle Cruise had a bit of a wait, but it wasn't the end of the world. It actually gave me time to look at some of the details in the queue... which I LOVED. I love how the really dry and ridiculous jokes can be found all over the queue if you look!







I love Jungle Cruise. I love the corny jokes, and especially when you get a good skipper. We had a good one from what I can remember! Plus, elephants!

Animatronic or not, they're adorable.





I always find myself laughing really hard, even while it's pretty quiet because people don't get the jokes or whatever, hahaha. I'm that girl, what can I say?

Anyway, we headed back over to Big Thunder from Jungle Cruise for a wild ride in the wilderness!



We had a blast, but Bruce and Amy decided they wanted to head back to their room to rest, but before they went back, we all grabbed more FPs and they gave us theirs!

I have to say, one big benefit of going with a group of people: when two people don't want to go on something, you can get their FPs and go on twice! It's quite awesome.

Matt and I decided at the same time that we were really jonesin' for a snack, so we walked with Bruce and Amy through Adventureland, and then said goodbye to them!

We hooked a left, just before heading out of Adventureland and into the hub... Because it was time for the most epic snack that you could ever imagine... that resides at Sleepy Hollow... The...

Nutella Waffle Sandwiiiiiiich!

Well actually, we had to sit in a line for a while before we could order, but we knew it was well-worth the wait.

While we waited, there was a couple behind us who had on the bride/groom ears and was obviously on their honeymoon. I almost said something to them but then didn't, and I have no idea why. But I love seeing other couples go to Disney for their honeymoon/anniversary because that's how we've done things... and, well, we've obviously loved every second of it.

Anyway, we both ordered iced coffees of some sort, and decided to split the Nutella Waffle sandwich because we'd heard it was the perfect snack to split with a person.

Soon enough, our order was called and we were handed our delicious-looking basket of amazingness, topped with bananas and strawberries.



I mean, come on, how good does that thing look?!

I tortured Matt by making him wait after we sat down at a table for another photo. I am cruel.



I finally let him dig in and... yup... The ooey gooey deliciousness of the Nutella on the waffle just looked crazy good.



I could not wait any longer, put down my camera, and dug in... and it was SO SO good.

This became one of my favorite things I've ever eaten at Disney World. I mean, it's so simple, just fruit, Nutella and a waffle... but together, it's just perfect. And ridiculously delicious.

Sure, I could make it at home, but this is so sinful that I really think limiting it to Disney World makes it ten times more special.

We also really enjoyed the area we got to sit in and eat. It was nice and quiet, with a perfect view of the castle. It was a nice break and I'm looking forward to eating there next trip!

We left Sleepy Hollow and had a serious sudden urge to go on the Haunted Mansion (though this isn't out of the norm for Matt, duh).

Unfortunately, things were starting to pick up at the park, so the wait said it was 30 minutes. We didn't really mind since it didn't actually look that long, plus we didn't have anywhere to be, so we hopped in line anyway!



It ended up not even taking that long, which was great! Only around 10-15 minutes! I love the queue anyway, so I was cool with it.









After we got on, the ride actually stopped... a lot. Most people get all cranky about this, but for me and Matt, HECK NO.

Matt, because it's his favorite ride, and me, because it means I can actually get some decent photos in the dark on my camera!











It was a fantastic ride for photos, and as much as it took a while, we obviously enjoyed ourselves on it.

Our Big Thunder FPs were up, so we headed over there and ran into a loooong FP line, which was a little annoying. Evidently the crowds weren't completely gone, but luckily we only waited around 10 minutes.



After we got off, we had our next set of FPs but both decided we didn't want go on it again because the line had only grown longer.

So we stood around for a few minutes, looking for a couple who would want to go on BTMRR. Just as I was about to give up, I spotted an older couple walking up the FP machines. I asked if they'd be interested in FPs, because didn't want to wait and had just gone on, and they were ADORABLE.

They were so happy about it and the man even patted me on the back, haha. It was too adorable, because

A. they were so thankful and
B. they were older and going on BTMRR and that just made me really happy.

I want to be them one day with Matt; still going to Disney World and still riding things like Big Thunder Mountain.

We headed off in search for some lunch and later witness one of the coolest/weirdest/creepiest things that very few people see in Disney World... (Mind you, I personally find this thing cool/creepy/weird, but you might not, haha).

Continued in next post

Mmmm the Nutella waffle looks divine! I can't wait to try that! I've had the chicken which was a bit too spicy for me.

Great shots from HM!

I wonder what could be so creepy at MK??

Oh my lanta. That nutella waffle sandwich. I have never had it but dang, it looks SOOO tasty that I can't wait to try it! Like, that's the first thing I am going to eat on my first MK day. No hesitation. I dream of it.

I LOVE giving away fastpasses that I can't use. People get so excited and it's such a good feeling because they are usually soooo appreciative.

Also, great Liberty Square stockade photo. You and Matt are all "yeah, we did it. What of it?!" And Bruce and Amy just look so sad. Like they didn't mean to do it and just fell in with the wrong crowd.

The Tangled bathrooms are indeed stunning.

I love the Jungle Vruise queue too, especially the spider. So much fun watching people react to that. Heck, I react to it too and I know it's there!

I think I'm one of those people that laughs on Jungle Cruise because I hate when no one laughs. Plus, I always feel bad for the skipper in those cases. This is cheese at it's best people!!

I find it funny that so many people think Haunted Mansion breaks down a lot. They just don't realize the ride has to be stopped in order to let some people (wheelchair, etc) get on.

And then another cliffhanger!!!!!

Ah.. The Nutella Waffle! I want that! In a few days I can have that!

So cute that you were able to give the FP tickets to an older couple. I think that is so sweet!
