Wish I could multi quote from my phone... But since I just have a couple replies...

Travel day is usually uneventful- but tiring. When we landed I wasn't even all that tired. Course we arrived so early, so maybe that is why I wasn't too tired

The meal at pm was good. I am not sure if it was because we had not ate all day but I think it was the best chicken EVER!

I did need a low key trip, that is for sure. However the previous trips- while they had ups and downs- were good trips. Maybe this one just wasn't long enough to have drama find me

I have another day to get through before I start on race weekend events. I promise to get there though!

Btw- happy late bday. I popped over to your tr.... And need to get caught up. For your trip only being a tad before mine it is well under way

Yeah for an uneventful travel day. Your room location is pretty nice - we have stayed in the area ourselves.
Looking forward to reading MORE, especially your next day.

Yep... another one. It was too short a trip... but such a good one.

I really liked that area. And having the pool right outside our room was amazing.

Yes... the next day will be a fun read. It was after all a very special day. I just had to go through the pics to get the best ones. SOMETHING caused Steve to take 400 pictures. (yes...literally about 400 of ONE event) Not sure why he didn't just decide to video tape instead. He put the setting on something that took one picture right after another in succession.

Thursday 2/21 - Day 2 Part 1

When the alarm on my phone went off at 6:45, I was happy to get up. I got ready and gave Steve and Zoe a bit more time to sleep. Not too much more though since I had wanted to get to rd.

We were a tad late, so we just missed a bus to MK. It wasn't long though and another bus was right there. Our luck with Disney Transportation this trip was amazing. We had to stand only once and only once did we have to wait on a bus.

We arrived at Mk at 8:01, so we just missed rd. Oh well, there will be other trips I can catch it. The park itself was not very busy.



We went directly to the New Fantasy land. Since everything was just opening, there was very little wait for Story Time with Belle. So this was first on our list of things. The wait was more than I would have liked but it was a must do for us since Zoe was interested.



You can see the line was a tad full.



Something else Zoe couldn't wait to see.


Maurices house is amazing. You can just imagine Belle growing up there.





Once through the house you go into his workshop. Then you view the special mirror. OMG!!! So very very cool. It did seem to terrify one child though and (I think it was) this child screamed nearly bloody murder almost the entire story time. Sorry, I was so mesmerized by the mirror I didn't take any pics.

Then into a special room with the wardrobe. Again... SUPER cool.


Of course, Zoe was asked to play a part. She was Mrs. Potts. I am kicking myself for not pre ordering the pp cd... but I didn't think we would get many pp pictures. We actually didn't, but there are a few that I do really love... but the cost to order a few of them isn't a lot less than the pre order.





Since we had not had breakfast we needed to find something to eat. Mainstreet bakery was closed. Sleepy Hollow was closed. Basically, we had a couple choices. One of those choices was Gaston's Tavern.





Zoe and I split a cinnamon roll and a cup of Lafous Brew. The cinnamon roll was yummy. I liked the brew, but Zoe and Steve both thought it was ucky.


Steve got a chocolate croissant and coffee. This surprised me since he rarely is a big chocolate pastry fan.

It was a very sunny day!


From there, we saw that there was a short wait to get on the new LM ride. We rode this in July in DCA. I must say it was MUCH better in MK. The queue alone was amazing. The ride itself was a bout the same... but the way it was housed... much better.









Next Up: Thursday 2/21 - Day 2 Part 2

Reading your update, I hoped Zoe would be chosen at the "Storytime thing" (forgot the name .... I am growing old )
She is such a cute little lady!

We loved the LM ride too - so nicely made, even though Ariel looks a bit "funny" in some of the szenes.

Your cinnamon roll looks yummy btw.

I hoped she would too. Actually, there were other kids there that refused. I think some kids love doing things like this and others are terrified to do so.

Yes, Ariel does look a bit funny in some scenes, doesn't she.

And..the cinnamon roll was yummy. Between that and the drink it was a tad on the sweet side though.

Thursday 2/21 - Day 2 Part 2

Continuing on with our visit to the new expansion we hit the circus area. We decided to meet the all the gals and guys. I just love Minnie's outfit!





Zoe was a tad disappointed that we were not doing autographs this trip, but soon got over it. Just as with the pp cd, I didn't think we would make much use of an autograph book. Still, there was just a part of me that wished we had got autographs from the circus versions.

We skipped over Dumbo and Zoe and I rode Goofy's Barnstormer.

As she and I waited in line for GB, a train pulled up to the station and we watched as they filled it with water.




Even though that ride is uncomfortable and way to short, I do enjoy it.





Next up: Thursday 2/21 - Day 2 Part 3

Oh Ann, I love your character pics! We didn't even go "near" where the characters were, just checked out the tent.

I just love your smile in the photo where you exit GB! You look so very happy!

There was little to no line to see the characters. We basically walked in and out...and then right back in (you have to enter again if you want to see the guys vs. the gals)

Steve loves that picture too. Normally, pictures of me kinda look Especially candid ones. He just happened to catch a good moment when I was smiling and not snarling.

It was fun... Zoe gets chose for something each trip. Sometimes... more than one thing. This was the one thing on this trip.

I assume the cinnamon roll was yummy... Zoe and I snarfed it down very quickly...so it must have been.

So glad that Zoe got picked to be Mrs. Potts. That must have been so fun to watch.

Love Zoe's shirt. I just screams first day of vacation. Great character pics!
