Aw thank you! You're more than welcome I'm just glad you enjoyed the read!


As promised, before finishing up, I said I'd share some of my favourite Photopass pictures with your lovely selves!

So are you sitting comfortably...?

This is one of our first pictures taken with the Photopass, straight after we had purchased it at the Theatre. We couldn't understand why the photographer was taking his time until we heard the bangs of the fireworks from the castle show behind us! Perfect timing, thank you sir!!



Another from our first morning at MK; it just shows how happy we were to be back!!



Say "hello" to my new friend!



Meeting the Beast in his quarters was a lovely way to end dinner at Be Our Guest!



I had to show this one even though it is horrendous! I have no idea how or even why I was making this face! I swear, I loved meeting the Beast!! Honest!



Excited to be at our first Flower & Garden Festival at Epcot!!



Ready for a fun-filled day at Hollywood Studios!



Family reunion!



I think the photographer's instructions on this one were something like "on the count of three, pretend you're on Tower of Terror"...



Tanya! Come baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!



Obligatory RnR photo!



Why I was so happy to be fighting Darth Vader I don't know...



This was another of those "on the count of three" photos... I have no clue what the instruction was though



We made it to Animal Kingdom!



These were animal impressions... apparently!


Continued in the next post...

Looking relatively normal (for once!) for dinner at Chef Mickey's!



Loving the leis at the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show!



The best hug in the world! This photo just makes me smile



Loving life!!



How come everything looks better in black and white?!



It is physically impossible to recreate these faces!



Another memorable day at Epcot!



Duffy gives the BEST hugs!



Ready to enjoy Illuminations for one last time after a superb dinner at Jiko!



Pretty like a princess at Cinderella's Royal Table - such a lovely experience



We couldn't leave without paying the main man a visit on our last day!



Goodbye Magic Kingdom... *sniff sniff*



And whoever these two ladies are... I'm really sorry that we have your photos on our Photopass



************************************

And so there you have it folks, the TR is officially completed! I wrote some 'highs and lows' on the UK Trip Planning board (here), and as promised, I finished up with some of our favourite Photopass pictures! Thanks again for reading along

Thanks for sharing. I thoroughly enjoyed your trip report. I love the Photopass photos. There are some magic shots that I have never seen before.

Wow Bethan, I've also just spent a few days reading this TR and I'd like for you to go back and do another one. I love your way of telling us all about it. That pic of you and Dug is cool, can sense your excitement at meeting him. Everything about UP is great though so naturally!
We are off on our 1st trip in 2015 to WDW and after the food reviews we are definitely doing the dinner show at Poly. It looks so good

Best of luck with the new job and move.

Thanks Corinna, it was great to have you reading along I like the magic shots too - I wish we had asked for them more! I didn't even think of it until we heard some families asking the Photopass guys on our last day what magic shots they could do!

What a wonderful suggestion! I would more than happily return to do another TR!

You'll have a wonderful time! 2015 is when I'll realistically get to visit again I think; I know it seems like ages away, but the time always seems to fly by! Do you have any plans yet? And yes, I highly recommend the Spirit of Aloha dinner show - if you look around you'll probably find many mixed reviews but we had a fantastic night and I'd urge you to give it a go Good family fun!

Thanks again for reading along, and happy planning to you

Photopass is such a wonderful 'invention'! I can't see me ever returning without getting it now - I am pleased with the majority of photos on the whole!

Paha, we're the masters of the interesting faces

Okay, okay, it's taken me WEEKS to actually finish reading, but wow, an amazing trip Bethan! Just wow!

I have loved reading from start to finish and I love all your details, it was like being there

I'm quite sad it's over, I was enjoying myself so much. The Brazil trip also sounds amazing! It's 2015 for us too on our way back, little one will be just 3, so it'll be a new experience for me...taking my own baby...arghhhh! I feel it'll be two and a bit weeks of blubbing from me!

Have really enjoyed your trip report, thanks for sharing, especially the Keys to the kingdom tour, very interesting!

I was pretty shocked by some of the stuff that happened to you all! Seems like you encountered every bad CM at Disney, and the incident with the construction workers... You just don't expect that at Disney!

Anyway, seems like you didn't let it spoil your holiday.

Thanks again

Stew
