Let's check out Storybook Circus

We decided to check out Storybook Circus. I'll admit, I hate clowns and all I thought of was "man, I hope that place isn't filled with clowns...that would suck." I would have likely run away screaming. lol

Here are a few pictures that we took while we walked around. We didn't ride Dumbo this time, as I wanted to wait for Jenn. Mostly, we did alot of browsing.















We also did some peeking to check out the new coaster that is under construction.







These guys are gonna love their new ride once it is done.

New Fantasyland

More pics of Storybook to come......we went back a bit later with Jenn.

We decided after walking around in Storybook Circus that we'd check out Under the Sea. The sign said that we had a 20 minute wait but honestly, it took 15 minutes to walk to through the queue! There wasn't even enough time to snap pictures....we were moving so fast.

I love what they did here but if I am honest, I am a little disappointed. It's like the Nemo ride at Epcot...sorta. I don't know what I was expecting though, but for some reason, that wasn't it.

.









We got PP pics taken here, but they didn't show up on our card. I was really bummed about that. Poop....

We then moved to Enchanted Tales with Belle. The wait was 50 minutes but we didn't mind. I was a bit worried about Joe though, having to stand for 50 minutes straight. He did ok, so I was glad.

Wow, what an amazing job they did with this. From the wardrobe, to the mirror to Lumiere, it was amazing. It was very much worth the wait!



I didn't take many pictures because we knew we'd be going back with Jenn a little bit later.

I started to get hungry so we stopped at Gaston's for hummus and chips.









We also checked out the Village Gift Store before moving on.

Next, we moved on to Pooh, home of the "puffs" as Kayla would say. More to come on that later.







Next up, Philharmagic. Anyone that knows me, knows how much I truly love this attraction. I really feel like I'm "at Disney" once I get here.





Next, we moved on to Peter Pan. Joe decided to use his assistance card here since he was tiring out and we still had a long way to go.



I still wonder how high up we actually are in this ride. It was years before I even opened my eyes while riding. LOL

Next up was it's a small world. Funny story, we were in line and started talking with the people behind us. They were wondering what Disney does with all the coins that people throw into the water. We moved on to football next, since the Super Bowl was soon and "our team" wasn't playing. The guy had on a Steeler's hat, and we're fans as well. They asked if we lived there and we said we didn't but that Joe grew up there. We said we were from Cleveland. The wife then said that she went to Lakewood High School, which is where I went! Yep, it's a small world after all, isn't it???

As usual, I really enjoyed it's a small world. I don't even care that the song gets stuck in my head for 3 months afterwards.

We then made our way to Joe's favorite place, the Haunted Mansion. We used the regular queue and there was really no wait. Again, it went so fast that I wasn't able to take picutres. Whenever we go into HM, I think of my mom, who calls it "the smelly ride." I think they need to do something with the queue in there though. As soon as those doors open, people stampede to get on and it's ridiculous. I am waiting for someone to get trampled.

It was time to meet Jenn so we waited near Hall of Presidents for them. I read about the Liberty Bell while we waited.



They had done the Pirate League and all looked so cute.





We decided that Hall of Presidents would be next. I really enjoy HOP, epecially when the president's names are called. No clue why, but I love it.

After Hall of Presidents, we went back to Peter Pan again with Jenn and family. I tried again to figure out how high up we were....still have no clue.

Jenn had not been to the new Fantasyland yet, so we decided to head back that way.



Under the Sea was first. This time I got to take a few pictures.



















There are shells in the ground throughout the queue too.

I'm so glad it's the weekend! Or just to have a few days off with the kids. We went to Legoland yesterday & froze (it was 22+ MPH winds coming off a lake - yikes!) I've been applying to jobs right & left, getting my license transferred, & shopping for houses. And all the while scheming to get to WDW as many times as possible in the next 20 days or so.

Looking forward to reading more!

I love the details in the Little Mermaid queue. Did you notice they play "Whale of a Tale" from 20000 Leagues? Nice tribute.

I knew Joe was a good guy, but especially so now that I know HM is his favorite!

I thought the same thing about the Little Mermaid ride, that it reminded me of Nemo in Epcot. But I did like the que, lots of details.

HM is my fav too and we loved going thought the interactive area until we followed a boy in there that had his hands down his pants for a good 5 min, that is when we decided to go though the short cut...lol. Didn't want to follow him in there, touching everything. I totally agree about the stampede. It is scary with little kids especially when there was big guys pushing and shoving their way through. Crazy!!

Great pics!!

There was no way you would have been imposing! We would have loved it if you could have stayed longer.

I hope you get to WDW as much as possible before the move.

Yeah, HM is definitely his fav.

Day 2 Continued

Our next stop was going to be Ariel’s Gratto so that we could meet her. I can’t remember why, but we never made it there. I think the line was too long.

Jenn and the family were ready for a snack so we headed back to Gaston’s.






We browsed the gift shop again near Gaston’s. I really like the stuff in there.




Next it was back to Pooh for all of us. Kayla was obsessed with the “puffs” as she called them….the chubby stuffed balls of Pooh and friends. I think she got her first puff of the trip then.






We then went back to Storybook Circus so that Jack could ride Barnstomers. The wait was insane….and I mean insane. Jack, Kayla and Bob waited in line while Jenn, Joe and I shopped for a bit. We then convinced Joe to ride Dumbo with us. The wait was 100 minutes long which wasn’t possible for Joe so we used the GAC here. By this time of the day, his meds had worn off and he forgot to give me an extra pill for him to bring that day.




I rode with Jenn and Joe was behind us. It took what it felt like for-evah to get our dang Dumbo to fly. We thought ours was broke…..lol, but it turns out that it wasn’t. By the time we got him to fly, the ride was over.

Once we regrouped, it was time for our BOG ADR. We had an early ADR...4:20, I think.




I was so excited to get inside and check it out. I was really looking forward to this meal.





I started with the French Onion Soup.



I have to be honest, the food was just okay. We forgot to ask for the gray stuff too.






While we were waiting for our food, Beast came into the West Wing where we were dining. I nearly lost it. I LOVE him…like seriously. I was soo excited when we heard that we could meet him after our meal in the Library. Yay me!




After we ate, we took a few pictures and made our way over to the Library. Yay me, I was one happty camper at that time. I told Beast that he was the only one I’d leave Joe for. HA HA















After humoring my obsession with Beast, the kids wanted to ride Space Mountain. We walked over that way only to find that it was closed. Not sure what happened.




We decided a spin on Buzz was happening next. Again, my score sucked. Joe and Bob were having a friendly competition. Our pictures were hilarious. I will post them once I upload all of our PP pics.

By this time, we were deciding on a spot for MEP. It was just Joe and I watching this time. His pain level was climbing but he knew how much I wanted to see MEP. We looked for a handicap spot for him to sit down and found one near HOP.

While we were waiting, I was thinking about how much I miss Spectro. MEP just doesn’t do it for me the way that Spectro did.

Here are a few pics that I was able to take of MEP.







After MEP, Joe was really anxious to start heading out of the park. We started heading to the front of the park and made it to Casey’s when Wishes started. We found a trash can to lean on and I took a few pictures of Wishes.

I had seen a pair of shoes that I wanted earlier that day, so we tried to find them in the shops on Main Street. It was odd though, the ones that I tried on didn’t really fit right at all. Later we figured out why, they were kids sizes. Lol.

We then made our way down Main Street and said good night to the Magic Kingdom.



After that is when all h-e-double-hockey sticks broke loose. OMG, the crowd was unreal. We couldn’t get near the monorail. I have never, ever seen that many people. The line was to the exit turnstiles…no kidding. We decided to try the boat instead. The people were pushing strollers and running over everyone’s feet. It was horrible. It took forever to get out. Probably at least an hour and a half. Joe was miserable by that time and I was really worried that he over did it big time. I had no clue what the next day would be like for him.

When we finally got back Pop, we crashed. I wanted to go to Everything Pop, but there was no way that was gonna happen.

I have to say, aside from the hassle to get out of the park, Day 2 was a huge success!

Up Next....Day 3

Day 3

Day 3 started off with breakfast with Jenn and the family at Ohana. Joe and I had not had breakfast there in years and from we remembered, we liked it there so we were anxious to see if it was still yummy.

We were up bright and early and make our way over to the Poly.












The food was good, but the service was miserable. Our server was horrible. She kept moving our coffee cups to the edge of the table. LOL, I thought Joe was going to lose it. He kept moving his cup, and she kept moving it to the edge of the table. I asked for the lighter side menu with egg whites and chicken sausage. I also asked for decaf coffee which took her forever to bring over. Frankly, she was mean. The mandatory 18% gratuity at that meal sorta made me mad, given the service.

The character interaction was fun at Ohana. Bob even got into it …. he joined the kids in the parade (pictures above).

On the way out, we wanted to take pics of the kids in the lobby, but they wanted to be silly.



We headed back to either Pop or POFQ, I can’t remember which one or why. From there we all got into our truck for a quick trip to WalMart. Jenn and I both needed a few things so we went in while the rest of our group stayed in the car.

Day 3 Continued

After we made our purchases at WalMart, we made our way to DHS.






I really love this park. For some reason, I tend to feel really relaxed when we are at DHS. I don’t ever feel rushed.



We did a bit of shopping when we got there. I got myself a new Minnie head band, which I really like.




After shopping, walked over to TSMM. I love this ride, but I stink at it. We rode twice because I had a bum gun the first time so they let us ride again. I think I rode with Jenn both times.

Next we went to AOA and met Ralph from Wreck it Ralph….and the girl too, whose name escapes me at the moment since I had not seen the movie. The line went pretty fast actually. We also met Mr. Incredible (Bob), who is Bob’s favorite, and Frozone, who is Joe’s favorite. There was some fun interaction here.












We all wanted to draw a character next. I had no idea that Jenn had never done this before. We drew Pluto in our session.

We browsed in the shop after we were finished drawing. Jenn made a purchase and sent it back to her resort. I could go nuts in that art store. I love everything in there.




My notes say that went back to TSMM again. We stopped for some pin trading along the way.



We rode TSMM a lot this trip actually. It’s so much fun if you use teamwork while playing.

By this time, we were all hungry so we went to Backlot Express. I got the kids power pack. It was yummy and just the right amount of food.

After we ate, Jack wanted to go to Star Tours. We talked him into Muppets first since we were passing by there. This show never gets old for me. I’ve loved Fozzie Bear for as long as I can remember.

Here are a few pictures that I took on the way over.

















Star Tours was fun, as always. I just wish we could get an experience and/or sequence that we haven’t seen yet. I like the 3D glasses for Star Tours better than any of the others on property. Oh, and Kayla was our “spy.” LOL

The group wanted to go to GMR next, but it was time for our first Dismeet of the trip. Jenn and I finally got to meet Beka and her boys in person! Yay! We were excited to meet them and were glad that they came to see us. I’ll tell you, those boys are cuuuuu-tteeeeesss. Adorable!!! You just want to pinch their cheeks, they are so dang cute!! I will post our PP pics once I upload them.

If you live to be a 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day. So I never have to live without you.

Dang, you were busy the other day! Sorry I am just getting to this! AGREED about that waitress. I often find the servers there unfriendly. Actually, I'm pretty sure I have yet to have a decent one. I think *maybe* the waitress at our breakfast last year was nice..maybe. I hate feeling like just another tip.

Also, the food at BOG was a big disappointment for me, although, I didn't have high hopes anyway. The atmosphere was awesome though, and it's really cool that you can meet beast now! Although, I kinda liked those moments you saw him at Epcot and ran to him real quick lol I don't recall great service here either! Not bad, but not great. Especially for a new place. Unfortunately NOT on my must do for next years trip!


Jack really enjoyed that barnstormer! and LOLOLOLOL at us for not getting the Dumbo ride. In our defense, or at least mine, I have NEVER had any issue working the elephant! Still funny! Bob got a couple good pics of us on it! can't believe that was the only time I rode it... God, I remember on Kaylas first trip, that was allllll she wanted to do

Oh man, I liked the pork shank at Gastons! and that LeFeus brew was NOMS! and that rose/pin pic from the store inspired me! I want to make one out of mickeys!

It is escaping me at the moment, but I forget why we parted ways, but HOLY COW was it awful getting out of MK that night. I felt like a noob. Stupid stupid!

I'm all sorts of out of order here lol!

I LOVED meeting Ralph and Vanilleope! We love love loveeeeeee that movie! Hope Joe enjoyed his bday gift

The meeting with Incredibles was ridiculous lol!

Didn't we do an art class after that? I think so, but forget? Oh waitm, you did put that in, ok cool, I'm not going nuts that was SO fun! We ended up doing 4 or 5 classes this trip, we loved it!

TSMM was my JAM this trip! I could do that all day long and nothing else and be perfectly fine with it!

The snack pack at BL was yum! I enjoyed the stop and snack!

All I can recall was jack dying to do Star Tours and being a giant PITA about it and miserable that we weren't doing it right at that moment! I think we handled his melt downs ok though lol

OK, I think I covered it all! REALLY wishing I was there right now! Could use some magical surroundings! If all goes as planned about 313 days til our next trip
