February 3rd Cape May and Hollywood Studios

Usual routine even though we did sleep till 7am this morning which was nice. Out the door and on the Hollywood Studios bus for 7.45am. We then walked to Beach club for a breakfast reservation at Cape May Cafe. We were quiet often early to our reservations and most of them squeezed us in earlier.

We met Minnie



Donald



and Goofy



We didn't really think much of the interaction here the tables are so close that you can't really get a great picture either with out some one else being in the way or in the background.

The food was good though I think Dave and I saw more bacon on this holiday then we had our entire lives. I got quiet attached to some of the pastries at WDW and they were really good here. Oh how I miss them especially being home on Weight Watchers.

After our breakfast we walked back to Hollywood Studios. The walk is lovely and it is really nice that few people do it. Elsie loves seeing the ducks, fish and terrapins in the water we always saw a lot here. Oh and of course waving at the boats.

We got in to Hollywood Studios about 9.15 so we didn't do too bad.

Straight for Buzz and Woody as I had read that they get quiet popular.
Loved it inside the meet and greet all the different photo opportunities kept Elsie nice and busy.

Elsie in her Buzz dress was obviously getting quiet a lot of fuss and was lapping it up lol!

She loves Buzz and Woody and is having a Toy Story themed birthday party next Saturday. (Can't believe she is 2 on Sunday)





Any way the interaction was great and Elsie loved seeing them.

Perfect timing as we walked out the Green Army Man was just at the Exit with only one other family waiting for him so we got in line.



Elsie had been doing her salute but got a bit star struck when it was her turn for a photo lol.

After a cuddle with him we moved on for a cuddle with a big blue fluffy monster



and a small green one.



Elsie loved Sulley we call her boo and calls Sulley Kitty like boo does in the film so she meowed at him when we met him and had every one in aw. They offered to look after her for the day whilst Dave and I did some rides. Tempting but Dave doesn't like the rides at Hollywood Studios. Chicken!



This is character overload day so next stop Phinease and Ferb







You can see in that photo she is dancing along to the music she wouldn't leave her we had to carry her away bless her.





Lightning McQueen and Mater were next not much to say about them as nothing happens when you see them.



Bless Elsie with Ralph she likes to kiss all the characters but Ralph can't bend so she was a bit cross about that lol! The little girl after us was terrified of Ralph he is HUGE!

The line for Mickey was huge so we decided to wait for Mr Incredible and Frozone who weren't there yet. Elsie shouted "Oh no" and cried I don't know why as soon as they come she stopped and was really excited. We had watched the Incredible's the day before we left so may be that is why she is so excited lol!

They were amazing with her the interaction was incredible.







We were there for ages.

After our huge character crawl we decided to go and share a counter service our first and got a hotdog with Mac and Cheese on it. I didn't like the Mac and Cheese it had a truffle oil on it had a strange scent. YUCK!

Elsie enjoyed her Mickey biscuits though.

Part 2

We left after having something to eat to go and have a swim then a little rest and nap for some of us



You can see our bedroom window from this picture

Tonight was the Super Bowl and on easyWDW said it would be a good time to go to any park after 4 as a lot of people would be leaving to watch the game. About 5.30 we made our way to Magic Kingdom.

We went straight to Mickey Mouse as w hadn't seen him all day lol!

We knocked on the door and Mickey answered and took Elsie's hand and walked off together in to the room where you have your pictures taken. Elsie loves her Mickey and loved being there with him.



Again great character interaction with Mickey. He liked that Elsie looked like she had his Mickey Mouse club house out fit on.

The park didnt look quiet but I don't know if it was just a lot of peopling leaving as the rides all had little wait.

We headed for new fantasyland. Enchanted tales with belle had a 40 minute wait so we joined the end of the line. We only waited 20-25 minutes was great. The detail in this place is just amazing

Elsie wasn't involved in the story but got to meet and cuddle belle. She was also given a book mark.



Belle asked if she could keep Elsie that mrs Potts would have plenty of room for in the cupboard with chip. 4am the next morning we wish we took her up on this offer lol!

When we got out it was really quiet we walked on down to The Little Mermaid ride.



The ride is lovely but a lot wasn't working which was disappointing. The ride wasn't always open and was kind of frustrating because we didnt get another go on here.

We headed to cosmic rays for a hot dog and watched the magic memories and me but left before the fireworks and the crazy wait for the bus.

Back in the hotel Elsie fell asleep on the bus and didnt even wake when we got her changed for bed. I can't stress enough how this never ever happens. She was all character end out for the day atleast.

Sorry don' t know what happened to my reply above and can't work out how to edit on my IPad! Was going to say that your DD looks so adorable meeting all those characters and I love her Buzz dress. Is that from Etsy too? I really should crack on and finish the outfits I said I would make for my two.

I love how much Elsie enjoys meeting the characters and she looks adorable in her Buzz dress. I can't wait to see the rest of her costumes. Can't believe how many characters you saw in such a short space of time xx

February 4th - Akershus and Epcot

What's the matter with us I thought we were settling in to the time difference oh no we are up at 3am Elsie and watch Stacey on loop whilst dave has a bath. We laze around and get ready. We are on the bus and at Epcot for opening. Bit of a disappointed with Epcot opening nothing really happened we were just aloud in.

Goofy and daisy were just stood around every one else seemed to be rushing off I guess towards sorin or test track but we stopped for Daisy.



It was pretty cool this morning as you can see Elsie has her thick coat on.

Oh yes I forgot to mention.. When getting ready I couldn't find the photo pass plus card any where. I asked dave as he was in charge of it and said he doesn't remember taking it off last night. It was lost I turned that place upside down and found the neck strap for it but no card. Thank god we took a picture of the code so we wouldn't lose our pictures. Make sure you do this too any one buying it. It's a life saver. The neck strap isn't great so we bought a lanyard and clear packet for it when we replaced the card.

We then made our way to the nemo ride. Gosh the walk way is long to that ride.

We watched the fish for ages Elsie loved them.



Turtle talk with crush was just starting so we went in. Elsie loved sitting on the floor with the other children. I have to say though I really wasn't bothered by this and don't think we would bother going back. I don't know if we were just unlucky as it was quiet.

We had a look round mouse gear and got Elsie a few more cheesy Mickey biscuit and watched the ducks. They are crazy in WDW and fearless.

We had a late breakfast at Akershus at 11 bang on 10 Elsie fell asleep so dave and I just walked around slowly and sat in a nice sunny spot. It was really warming up and it was lovely. We checked in for Akershus at 10.45 Elsie was still asleep even though we had got her out her push chair and took her coat off.

Elsie loves belle and every review I had read every one met belle here for a photo. Well we saw aurora.



Bad photo will update with photopass later

Which was fine but we had already met her and still hadn't seen belle

Elsie was excited to see Cinderella when she come over to take her for the parade around the restaurant.



I love Cinderellas new dress.

The food her was really good we chose breakfast because lunch and dinner menu didn't appeal to us. I loved the buffet and then they bring you out hot items. Yummy again my pastry love was fulfilled here.



Ariel was great with Elsie. She talked to Elsie about fish the bubbles they made fish impressions together lol.



Snow White talked to Elsie about her woodland creature friends and the dwarves. Elsie just sat an listened she looked very happy just listening though.



We thought it was kind of strange to see Mary Poppins here as we thought it was princesses. She was good though she was actually English which was a surprise as I have heard/seen on YouTube some of the Mary Poppins aren't and have silly put on accents.

After breakfast we made our way round the world. It was lovely and hot now. Elsie walked all the way around the world quiet an accomplishment how many two year olds can say they have walked around the world.. He he.

I had one of the Dr Doofenshmirtz beaker drinks yum was so tasty. We stopped in England so Elsie could see pooh and tigger and do some colouring at kid cot.

I don't have any pictures so will add them when I'm on the lap top and can access the photopass photos

After a bounce with tigger we made our way to France as Belle was back from seeing the beast.

I teared up so much I don't have many photos. Again photopass photos are amazing I will add them later.

Elsie was so happy to see her it was amazing.

We told belle that Elsie loved the beast and belle told Elsie all about the beast and sat and cuddled for ages.



Elsie was pretty tired by now it was 1 and she had been up since 3 with only a little nap. So we made our way back.

She slept till 6 so we decided to head to DTD again. I really wanted to try T Rex so we went to see if they could squeeze us in. No problem and we were seated straight away.

I had a cottontini



As well as BBQ pork roll was very good. I liked it here but dave wasn't bothered about going back.

We had another look round World of Disney as it was a lot quieter and treated Elsie to few more bits and pieces.

As we were walking back there was a police helicopter circling down town disney and saratoga springs we got caught in the search light a few times and wow it was bright.

Back in the room and Elsie was in bed about 8.30 dave and I watched a documentary on Pixar was really interesting unfortunately we fell asleep before it finished. I woke up in the night and went to bed but dave stayed on the sofa. Was a great night sleep lol!
