After wandering around a bit more we decided it was time to get some lunch!

We decided that Columbia Harbor House was in order! It had been on the plan, but I gave Josh the option to choose something else, and he didn’t!
You can read a more detailed report of lunch HERE

Josh had the fish.



I had the shrimp.




And we both had an apple crisp!



While we were eating I was texting back and forth with a wonderful DIS/FB friend who is kinda a big deal on the Disney blogs scene! We decided that after lunch we would make our way over to meet up with her! She let me know where she was hanging out, and Josh and I set out to beat a villain in Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom.




The game took us right to where my friend was waiting and I got to meet her!!!




It was so nice to meet someone who I spend so much time chatting about Disney online with AT DISNEY. It was one of the highlights of my trip! I wish we had had more of a chance to visit, but we were in a race to beat the villain. Next time, I will make more time!




We beat the villain and decided to do some more rides!
We went ahead and grabbed some Splash Mountain Fastpasses and headed to Adventure land to see what trouble we could find!

Pirates said 10 minutes so we hopped in line!
We got almost to the loading room and then the line just stopped. We waited, and waited and waited. We could see that the boats were loaded, but were not moving. You can see the stopped boats through the cannon hole here…




I sat on the platform for a while when we were stuck and updated my Facebook about being stuck!




Once we got on we enjoyed our ride… until we got stuck right before the room with the fire and the dog. We were in-between the two rooms, and the sounds were mashed together. It wasn’t the funest place to get stuck!
Because of the delays by the time we got off of Pirates it was time for our Splash Fastpasses to be used! We put everything in the large zip lock in the bag and headed in.

I was VERY happy when we were put in the back of the log. I kept telling each Cast Member we approached I wanted to be in the back (wasn’t sure who was counting off what log you were in)













Of course I had to redneck the photo!




After enjoying our Splashingly good time we both wanted to have a snack, and I had a “must do” that I had never done! It was time for a Dole Whip!!!




We chose to share a vanilla/pineapple




Josh is not a fan of this photo, but I think it is wicked funny!!

As we ate the Dole Whip I dropped the camera (I am a camera killer). This made me re-arrange my pockets, and realize that I had lost the Photopass card. And I hadn’t taken a photo of the numbers yet…

I've never been a big fan of CHH, but that apple crisp looks like it might almost make it worthwhile to stop by there.

I'm glad that you finally got to try a Dole Whip... but try to hang on to the camera next time.

Time to retrace steps and find that photopass card...

Not sure if you know or not but you can get free iced water from any counter service location! It has helped me tremendously because I don't have to feel bad not carrying in water and all that. My mom used to carry TONS of drinks into the parks because we NEVER ordered a drink with our meals or bought anything from a stand. This past trip, I did bring some water in a reusable bottle, but it just didn't hit the spot like ice water did. When I was melting, that was what helped make me feel better.

HOW CUTE! This is the first time I've seen Sebastian in a Photopass picture! They really should add more characters like that and other magic shots. I think it would totally increase the appeal of PP.

Haha, I was on my phone an awful lot this trip too posting stuff on Instagram and Twitter. I love seeing live updates from DIS friends who are in WDW! It's so much fun! I figured that since I was there, I could do the same for them!

Oh no to no Photopass cards!

All caught up on your trip report. Funny, we got stopped at the exact same place on POC during our trip in January. Looking forward to reading more about your trip. Also, your pictures are wonderful.

I just found your report. I actually found the dining report and read both that and the trip report. Loving both, but I am very upset that I finished it and we are left with a missing-photopass-card-cliffhanger!!! Can't wait to find out what happens!

It's really tasty, but the shrimp were the star! I will do my best with the camera, no promises though, it's a long record

Oh don't worry the Photopass will come up again...

Thanks for the tip on the water, we did that at one point. For me, I need it in my hand to get me to remember to drink, so a bottle works well...

I LOVE the sebastian in the photos, they are so fun!

Yes, part of the reason I update so much is because I love watching other people's updates!

Glad you are enjoying the report and the photos! Pirates seemed to have issues the whole time we were there, booooo

So we headed to Town Square to see if they could help us retrieve our photos. Using my outfit, and the time of day we had the photos taken they were able to find them all, and add them to a new card for us! The lady working the desk made me take a photo using my phone and send it to Josh of the new numbers!!!!

I love Town Square.







In order to make up for my little Photopass Card incident I decided to see if Josh and I could find a little bit of magic! We headed to the hat shop, and found the party phone!!!!




Since we had restored order to the world by having a Photopass card again, I decided we should give it a little work out!










After a bit of spying in the shops we headed over to Tomorrow Land.




We grabbed some Buzz Lightyear Fastpasses and then headed into…







After the Laugh Floor we checked out the shops and mushed some pennies. Then at the exact moment we could, we grabbed another Buzz Fastpass.




Second set of passes in hand, we headed in to try and defeat Zurg!




Apparently I was distracted….




Josh of course beat me into the ground….

Next we headed to a classic.







Josh took what is possibly the best photo of me from the trip!




We love this classic, I know it isn’t exactly thrilling, but it is a nice way to relax for a little bit, and take in all the views of the area.

After our ride I needed a snack!




We decided to share a Mickey Pretzel and Cheese from the Lunching Pad! You can see more photos HERE in my dining report.




According to my receipt it was 5:05 at this point. Our dinner reservation wasn’t until 8, so this was a much needed snack!

I love the TTA! It's a great way to take a short little break. You get to rest your tired feet, get a little bit of a breeze, and people watch at the same time! Did y'all do CoP? It's another favorite.

I'm so excited to visit all the new "stuff" that's been added since our last trip-The Laugh Floor, the Little Mermaid Ride, the New Fantasyland, dual Dumbo's....not to mention everything at EPCOT, Hollywood Studios (is it still called that?) and the AK.

I miss the magic!

Okay..... I've missed some, so I had to get caught up!!! Dole whip.... uhhhh, YES!!! Yummmm.... I haven't tried chasing the villains, but it sounds pretty cool, especially since I just read Kingdom Keepers. I have never done The Laugh Floor or People mover... and yes, I know, I've been there multiple times now!! ha ha.

Is the Laugh Floor really good? What do you DO on the people mover? So dumb to not know... ha ha.

I love the photo Josh took of you. It's like I get to live vicariously through your trip... even though I was just there a month ago.... Ba ha ha ha ha!!!
