Love the pictures, we did the photo pass once and I just wish they could get rid of the rest of the world behind us. I don't want all those people in our pictures.

Just joining in!

Your family reminds me of ours. My dad and mom were blessed with three daughters so he was always the only guy. Luckily, my older sister just gave him his first grandson so he's not alone anymore!

Can't wait to read more!

I know! There was one morning, however, we were first in line to get into the park and we ran to Fantasyland for the rope to drop their and we stopped quickly and took one right at the castle with no one behind us!

Thanks for joining! I'm so glad you like it! My dad too has had to put up with all girls since the beginning of time, but my oldest sister who didn't end up coming with us has two sons!

Joining a little late.

Jessica looked very happy to see her surprise. I would be too.

The video was so cute. She looked like she was very excited.

I love the picture where Jessica is holding up the sticker. Those stickers are everywhere in Disney.

I love the Im celebrating photo pass picture. Its so cute.

I can see you have a special bond with your sister. The pictures you take with her always make me smile

A Hundred Acres of Delicious Food! Day 1 (Part 4 I)

A Hundred Acres of Delicious Food! Day 1 (Part 4) I & II

Sidebar: Hiii all

I just developed my sisters pictures from the trip. These are some picture from earlier in the day I thought were cute.


Waiting for Dad to come back from parking the car


Jess and Dad at the airport


Waiting for the airplane


Jess and I waiting while Mom bought waters

Okay back to reality&



We arrived at Crystal Palace at 3:00 PM and checked in for our 3:20 ADR.

Recently Jessica has become obsessed Pooh and the gang, and originally every time I checked for Crystal Palace ADRs there were none. However, one night a week or so before our trip I couldnt fall asleep so I decided to check, just for giggles, and there it was. A 3:20 PM ADR! It was probably the greatest feeling ever.




Castle picture

So I checked in and within 5 minutes we were being brought to our table. We were seated on the right side in the corner with an amazing castle view.




Jessica was very excited about this meal!


As was I


View from our corner table

Our server came over, explained to us the buffet and the path of the gang, and took our drink orders. I got lemonade, Dad got Coke, Mom got Arnold Palmer, Jessica got chocolate milk and Jill got Diet Coke.

After our drinks came we all went up to the buffet to grab our first plates.


Jessicas plate


My plate, I quickly ran out of room everything looked so good.

The cucumber salad and the shrimp were so amazing! And the Mac and cheese was just soooo delicious I couldnt handle it!

"STOP EATING!! I NEED TO TAKE A PICTURE OF YOUR PLATE!"


Dads plate


Jills

I didnt get a picture of Moms plate

Tigger was our first friend to come visit us, and Jessica was very excited.







Continued in next post.

A Hundred Acres of Delicious Food! Day 1 (Part 4 II)

I also got a picture with Tigger because Tigger is my favorite but Tigger was being overly foolish and it was getting to a point where it was frustrating. So our picture didn’t turn out well. I was very disappointed.

To be completely honest, something was very off with Tigger. Walking away from our table he was stumbling and crashed right into a table where people were sitting. His CM attendants did not think that was very funny. We all thought he was a like d-r-u-n-k or at least a bit too foolish. I was sad because I had really been looking forward to meeting him.


Mom got Jessica some chicken nuggets. That girl loves herself some chicken nuggets.

Eeyore made his was over to our table next.


What a shy guy




Group pic


I love hug pictures!

Pooh was right behind Eeyore




Jess and Pooh



After Pooh left us, we ran up for seconds before Piglet would be joining us.


My second plate

That salmon!! So amazing!!


Mom’s second plate


Jill’s second

Piglet came and joined us


Piglet and Jess


The gang! I love this one

After piglet, I decided I’d grab so desserts!


Yum! I got some apple cobbler, a piece of coconut flan, turtle cheesecake, and lemon custard.

The turtle cheesecake was honestly so phenomenal! And I really like the coconut flan even though it didn’t taste very coconutty at all


Jessica got some ice cream.

She has this thing where she likes to put things in front of her face when I ask to take pictures of her, as you will come to find out.

At about 4:15, we finally headed out. We were all extremely tired so we decided we’d head out and go back to the hotel and rest a little bit. Before we headed out we stopped at Guest Relations to switch our tickets over to the new ones and to double check on the whole adding a day thing.

The CM we had, personally, I did not like, I don’t know there was just something about her, and she just wasn’t very thoughtful or helpful. We asked her about adding one day and she told us that we would have had to do that during the initial fourteen days when I had originally used the ticket. It was very frustrating and she just kept saying how they’re working on fixing it so you can upgrade your ticket even after the fourteen days. I know that it really wasn’t her fault but I was just too mad about the whole situation that I decided I didn’t like her. It was frustrating because all we wanted to do was add a day but nooo we had to buy a separate one day park hopper and it was just a hastle and I felt bad because Mom had to spend the extra money on that ticket and ugh it just wasn’t the highlight of the day.

We did end up switching our tickets to the new ones, this same CM was not making anything magical though. She gave us three Goofy cards and two Donald’s and didn’t even tell us which the child one was. Ugh. Not my favorite CM interaction. But we bought the one day park hopper, switched our tickets over, and Jessica made her first pin trade.


Jess and her new pin

Then we headed out of the park and back to the hotel.

Up Next: Nap time and a night at the Kingdom

*Disclaimer: I’m not usually this negative, that’s a one time thing.*

The Crystal Palace is one of my favorite character meals. I love the characters so maybe thats why.

That view is amazing! Great dining seats!

The food there is pretty good. Im really hungry now.

Some cast members really show the Disney magic when some dont. Im glad you fixed the problem but had to spend extra money

The pin trade picture is priceless

I love Crystal Palace, I do the same think check, double check and triple check before I leave for any restaurant's. Every once in a while you get a CM who didn't read the fine print, the customer is always right. Or at least try to help you fix the problem.

Great Trip Report so far! Jessica is adorable! I have a sister named Jessica too...

How hot was it? My son's birthday is in July and I would love to surprise him one year and go to Disney instead of having a party!
