HDDR looks like you guys had a blast!! I can't wait to get back there in Sept, such good food! Yay for river country! It's totally an area I'd love to explore, never really knew where it was though haha. Maybe next time! Love that you guys thought of the hunger games too!

Hoop Dee Doo looks like so much fun! I really only ever hear about it from you guys, so your post was actually really informative! The funny thing is that the best thing I learned about it is that the show doesn't take place during the same time as the actual eating because I used to wonder how I'd either keep my eyes on the show or be able to eat as much as I'd want if I was too preoccupied. I love the fact that they serve the food in those buckets and such. To me it looks like it'd make the food taste that much better! The part in the video of Brittany nom-ing the ribs makes me super hungry!

Wow, it's hard to believe that there's something so rundown like River Country on Disney property. if it looked that horrible, you'd think that guest wouldn't be able to see it considering how they are with putting up scrims to covers buildings that are under construction.

Haha, you guys look like such hardcore braiders.

Wow, I can't believe you could see River Country so easily! I'm surprised Disney doesn't have totally blocked off. Such a shame. I never went, but it looked so cool!

Thats super exciting! I love the food so much, delicious. We were shocked that we passed it all the time and never really knew how to get there.

We're just a big obsessed hoop dee doo family. The only part that the show is going on while eating is when you get your dessert. So I didn't eat as much as I would have because I was to engrossed in the show.
Agreed it's so sad and rundown that I surprised Disney has just left it like that.

It is crazy how much you could see. I don't understand why Disney never did anything about it.

Swimming The EAC to Radiator Springs


We didnt have anything planned for the night, Brittany and I talked about going to the boardwalk and exploring over there. We discussed going to DTD to get some ice cream. All we knew was that we needed to put our phones on charge.

We hung out in the room for a while till we figured out what we were going to do.
Andy enjoyed sitting in his chair





The Alicia suggested playing a Yolo favorite& BE THAT STATUE!
Andy was first, be that towel animal



Alicia be Crush!



Next it was Brittanys turn, she thought we were kidding when we told her to just do it on the table but we were for real. So she accepted the challenge



We looked all over the room for something for when we found squirt





Brittany just loves to plank things



After so much excitement in the room we decided to go explore the resort! I was so excited, because it would be Alicia and Brittanys first time experiencing the resort. Andy and I went around doing a photo shoot in January but I was so excited to go around again.

On our way out Alicia wanted to take a swimming photo. What does that mean? Well the carpets in the nemo buildings were water and bubbles.

This is what swimming photos look like



This is what looking cute under the sea looks like



Thats when we heard people coming so we quickly got up. We lingered the hallway and decided to take some more photos down another hallway



My camera was too complex for Andy, he wasnt sure how to zoom in. As I was helping with him, Alicia and Brittany were just laying in the hallway. Thats when this real sweaty guy came walking by. It was a whole lot of awkward, he didnt know what to do, we didnt know what to do. Thats when we realized we were in front of his room. He knocked on the door calling for someone but no one answered. So after a good 3 mins of him knocking on the door, Alicia and Brittany laying on the ground, Andy and I just standing there, he ended up leaving.

Just swimming the EAC



After our swimming photos it was time to go exploring.
First stop Radiator Springs!





Our first order of business was to check out the pool, we needed to sit in one of those cozy cones!



This section was designed perfectly. The lobby is really the way to get to the pool.







Oh my goodness this pool area, I love it!!!





To bad it was real chilly this night so we didn't go swimming. So instead we opted to just take pictures in the Cones

I was cracking up about the whole incident that occurred when you guys were swimming in the EAC and the sweaty guy came along! I had to read it to my husband too because it's just too funny picturing this entire scene in my mind. I can only imagine what that guy is telling his friends when he's asked what happened on his vacation!

Sam!! I'm so excited that I found your TR today, and I'm all caught up! I was thinking to myself...I wonder if she every started that TR? So luckily I clicked on your name and here I am!

Love all the HDDR pics, it looks like a really fun way to kick off a trip on the first night! I wouldn't mind having some strawberry shortcake right about now either.

Swimming in the halls looks like tons of fun until a sweaty man is trying to get in his room. I can just picture how that all went down...must have been hilarious!

Yay, looking forward to the rest!

It was sooo awkward. But thinking back it was probably more awkward for him then the four of us. He probably told his family all about it once he found them.

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME!
Sorry I didn't link this report to my last one, silly me.
I could eat that strawberry shortcake every day of my life. There was a whole lot of awkward in that situation, I hope he found his family and was able to get in his room to take a shower.

Welcome to the Cozy Cone


We were super excited too sit in a cozy cone. Alicia and Andy made themselves at home.





Looks like we got a creeper creeping through the window



Then it was my turn to try out the cozy cone, I have been waiting for this moment my entire life



Andy thought he was so funny peeking in through the window, he was smiling so big. Alicia decided to show him what a real creeper looks like.



After so much excitement wrapped up in ten minutes we left our cozy cone and went to explore more of Radiator Springs!



We tried real hard to take nice photos



But we wanted to be different from everyone else and decided to be creative

Mowgabalooing time



The rules are pretty much if Alicia Mowgabaloos Brittany needs to plank. Therefore it was Brittanys turn.



Alicia then ran over to where Fillmore was and said she had the best idea for a photo.





After being run over we made our way to see Luigi and Guido



We didnt spend a lot of time here because we needed to go visit everyones favorite tow truck



MATER!!!!



CAUTION: the next photo can be traumatizing for people


Silly Mater Brittany isnt food.



We then found some hobos living in Maters trunk&.



The cars section has to be the best-designed section at AoA. It feels like you are actually at Radiator Springs. As we were leaving Alicia asked us if we wanted to move to a cars room half way through our stay, unfortunately we did not. But one day I will stay in them.

We left Radiator Springs because we had 2 other sections to explore tonight



We were off on a crazy adventure!
