Oh Brenda! Your pictures of NFL at night are breathtaking....oh I can't wait to see it....just 4 and half more months!!! Sounds like a great evening and you have made me curious to try EMH at MK again! The last time we went, and it was awhile ago, it was a madhouse...but I guess we just have to stay longer

Wow! You've been updating like a mad woman.

Something I could clearly learn from.

One of these days we'll be in the same place at the same time, and when we are I'd like for you to teach me how to use my camera as well as you do. I think you've said you use a one step down from a DSLR point and shoot, and since I have a really nice one that my hubby got me for Christmas, I'd love for you to give me some pointers.

Your pictures, as always, are so beautiful.
I think it's funny how you and Em get separated from one another when you are shooting pictures. Mackie gets just as frustrated with me for taking too many pictures. She's usually walking ahead of me because of it.

I love being in the park at night, there is something so beautiful about it being all lit up and hardly anyone there. I love being able to walk on all the rides and being able to turn around and ride it over and over again if it's something we really love. Mackie and I have been known to do that on Splash and caught Wishes during the ride, the best part is seeing Wishes when you are about to take the plunge down the big hill.
You can pretty much walk on in the mornings too, another favorite time of the day for me.
Nothing like starting your day in MK with some thrills right off the bat to wake you up! Get's your blood pumping and adds a great start to your day.

What a nice jaunt back over your resort. When you said you left when you did and got to your resort when you did I was thinking how in the world did you do that?!? But I forgot you were just a stone's throw away from the park, that must be the best feature about staying at BLT.

Staying anywhere that requires a bus is at least a half hour to an hour to get back.

Y'all still have a few more days to go, huh?

Dinner at Kona sounds and looks delicious! Is it weird that in my mind it’s only a breakfast place?! Bahaha. I’ll have to remember to check it out!!

Love the pics of the poly at night, and glad you found Em again! Ah Wishes from the beach!! I’ve ALWAYS wanted to do that!! Definitely something I plan on checking out!

UGH CTM!! The lanterns & the “started by a mouse” part seriously tear me apart, like, I’m totes nearly crying now, bahaha. It’s just so amazing!

…..why have I never thought of going on the speedway strictly to quote ricky bobby…..


Have to agree that I’m just not a fan of enchanted tales, I’ll do it when there’s a newbie with me, but that’s about it…

Great nighttime shots around the park!!

I love your Poly pictures!

EMH in Fantasyland. I love it! What a great way to end the evening.

I remember the ice cream hair! I think that surprised me most when I saw it in WDW for the first time... no, actually I think it surprised me first when I went to DL again and it was "fixed".

I'm glad you didn't panic when you lost Em. Better to stay calm!

Somehow my life was so busy I didn't ever start reading your trip report until Friday but I've just read it over the past three days! Fabulous and I've loved it all. Thanks for a fun ride and can't wait for the rest.

Great pictures in this update. Would this be the time to tell you how awesome it was to see Space Mountain with the lights on while ride the TTA on our last trip??

We even got the opposite. We got to ride Space Mountain while the lights on the TTA were on which was very weird because we could kind of see where we were going and all of the bars that were very close to us. It is definitely better the other way around. Can't wait for more!

Awesome update, Brenda.

You sure got a lot done during EMH's...very impressive.

I love how you walked right on to Pooh and Mermaid. We've yet to actually see the Ariel with the fins...I have to work on that next trip.

Your pictures around the NFL are absolutely spectacular. It truly is stunning with the lighting.

We have still not seen Enchanted Tales with Belle (not sure if Mary is getting FP for that or not).

Nice that you were able to just "walk back home" and hit the sack.

Brenda, Love your review of Kona. I feel in love with that steak also (and I'm not much of a steak eater) As for the bread, Elizabeth finished it after her meal before her Kona Cone. She mad a face when they tried to take it away after she ordered her cone.
I realized how tired I am when I first read your "NFL". I was trying to figure out how football, MK, and EMH fit together. I will say it came to me before I read on.
Love how empty MK was for you. You and Em got a lot done. Your night pictures of NFL are amazing. Can't wait to see it for myself.

I have seen the lights on in Space Mountain - twice, I think. the pictures never do it justice. It honestly just looks like a maze of metal tracks. It looks entirely different than when the lights are down. Kind of cool but not earth shattering. It sort of wrecks the illusion.

OK - that is sort of freaky that you and Rob have the exact same clock picture.

I have never been in the MK that late I wish I could hang that long - it looks so cool that late at night. Your pictures are fab. I love them.

What a great evening! And to be right at BLT. Well, that's just the icing on the cake.

I love seeing pics of an empty Magic Kingdom! I just would not be able to stay up to 1:00 to take them.

Love your nighttime NFL photos! The wall does look so pretty all lit up like that.

Eeek, I sure hope so!!! Keeping my fingers crossed!

I loved the LM ride at DCA when we went in 2012, but WDW definitely improved on a great attraction with their amazing ride building. It's a shame DCA didn't have a better space to work with, because it's a GREAT attraction!

It has to be so exciting to pass THAT DOOR now and know you have been up there to look around!!

Congrats on being Mother of the bride!

Congrats to Emily & Jordan, double congrats on a guy who can pick out a beautiful ring like that on his own! I wish them a lifetime of happiness.

You definitely need to drag him over to WDW a time or two! I'm happy you will get to continue the Mother & Daughter trips! I don't get to go with you guys and I would miss them!

Nighttime EMH is the time to be in the Magic Kingdom. You can get so many rides accomplished, and the later you stay the emptier the park gets. It's pretty fun to see the park so deserted, almost feels like you have the place to yourself.

I have to agree with you on the Peoplemover; it's set to an odd speed!

Great photos. I like the perspective of the castle "tunnel" looking towards Main St/Train Station...artsy!
