So, when are you going in April?
Thanks for the intel about the MT Sandra. I'm really hoping our timing is perfect.

We'll be there starting 4/28 thru 5/8.

Thanks Melissa! I think we'll be in luck. At least I hope so. I know my DH may not be as willing to wait in line for that.

Thank you Linda! I figure even if we get to the park around 10pm we can enjoy a few EM hours. Why not! You only give up sleep right?

Thanks Julie. Disney doesn't let us down at night either. It's even more beautiful with the lighting.

Why thank you Caree! I am glad that you are joining in. No problem. I'm pleased to be your current Disney TR pusher!

Oh, that picture of your way into MK after the fireworks - I have to admit, that gives me a little anxiety. Those crowds coming at you!

Love the pics from the projection show. We have never seen it……

I agree - the WDW Space is very jerky. All my love is with the DLR version.

I love that you and Em did the Speedway!

I noticed that Ariel’s ice cream cone hair had changed at DCA when we were there in January - the last time it had been totally soft serve!

I really wish we had managed to do ETwB last year. Someday……

You got some AMAZING closing pictures - beautiful!
Our skipper was quite a guy, we were pleasantly surprised that he made our first trip on a boat launch enjoyable. I don't think I added that fact in my TR. We'd never been on a boat from any of the MK resorts (other than the boat to and from WL/CR)

Those crowds were like a lava flow! Coming at you and you definitely didn't want to be in their way.

What? You've never seen CTM at MK? You have to stay for that sometime. It is awesome.

Ha ha! You had the pleasure of seeing soft serve hair Ariel too! I didn't know it was called that until Em told me and then it made sense.

Oh, Willow would love ETwB. She would be adorable in her little Belle costume too! Who could resist giving her a part?

We debated it for a weekend in August, but the construction is not appealing, especially if the pool is down, so we're doing the Yacht Club. My sister is a kindergarten teacher, so we like to go the first weekend after school starts, since the first week of school is generally really rough. Terrific use of EMH, it sounds like you really fit a lot in. Tomorrowland Speedway is a new must-do for me since I travel with my just turned three year old nephew. I think I'm starting to get used to the smell there!
The Poly is so lovely. I haven't stayed there in over 25 yrs but I agree, now's not the time to try to get reacquainted. I'm sure many people want to see the construction conclude before booking the resort. I think most people know I'm a fan of YC as well.

Ha Ha!! I'm picturing Disney therapy as necessary for the effects of kindergartners.

I think it's hilarious when you let the little ones drive on Tomorrowland Speedway. I must not have an issue with the fumes since I don't think about that too much. Then again, I love the smell of gasoline so there you have it.

Great updates! Kona's bread is so, so good. I'm not sure why they even bother serving other food besides that bread and butter. I sure don't have room for anything else. What perfect timing for the fireworks!
Why certainly! I usually look back at my photos and get a sense of who was in the background and wonder, hmmmm was it them? I only had photos of the people in the booth next to us and I think a guy at one of the tables nearby. Of course I also wonder were we picking our noses or in a snotty mood too! In any event, it would have been great to meet you. Yes, maybe another time.

Oh man! You know how wonderful that Kona bread is too! They must put something in it make it extra addictive. Kinda like MSG for Disney dining.

We didn't plan it ahead of time but we couldn't have timed those fireworks better. Now the crowds up Main Street are a natural down-side to that.

It has been years since we watched the movies in Epcot. Next time we will fix it.
MMM, Kona. Love that place.
Nice pics of Poly. One day I will stay there.
Nice he stopped for pics.
Those crowds I would have pushed my way through in the stores.
Ooh the Peoplemover. So fun and relaxing.
Great pics from Little Mermaid.
Nice departing shots of MK.
All caught up again.
Hi Scott!
Oh yeah, all those people NOT in our monorail car missed the show. I'm sure my song and dance was very entertaining.

Ahhh I'd stick with green if in doubt. You don't want to TURN green on that ride.

Thank you!

Yep, love Kona anything!

It's only been 25+ years since I've stayed at Poly. I think it may have changed some.

Nice skipper. He didn't have to do that either. It was appreciated. But those crowds... yeah, the stores would have been a more strategic move.

People Mover should have a sub-title name called "15 minutes of putting your feet up relaxation while touring TL"

Thanks and thanks... glad you are caught up. I must do the same.

I've never been on the DL version of SM but I will agree it is definately too jerky! And, I'm with MEK...it's a big disappointment to actually see it with the lights on. It just looks like a big erector set. Definately loses the scary factor after seeing it that way.

Christine
No worries, glad to see you caught up Christine!

I'm sure SM loses some of the mystery once you've seen it in all it's lit up glory. I suppose they say be careful what you wish for. I may never be able to view the ride the same again. I like your erector set description.

And no worries about rescheduling your trip. Hopefully you will still be able to come and enjoy the Food & Wine Festival this year. We are now able to go back to Disney World a little more often now that jason has a new job. And good luck to your hubby for starting a new job. New jobs are great!
Thanks Charlotte! It was great to walk down Main Street and be one of the stragglers.

I'm going with Michael later this month into next month and then a girl trip with Em earlier in the summer so I had to move things around to make them earlier in the year. I'm not booked during F&W now so I'm bummed.

Hi Brenda,

I wanted to report back on two things we did on our recent trip because of things you have written in your trip reports. I've lost track of which thread you posted them in, so I'll just add them here.

1. Because of your experiences with dodgy taxi drivers and credit cards, we used cash when taking taxis to DTD and back. There have been some stories like that about taxi drivers here in Chicago pulling a few scams with credit cards, so I don't think these problems are unique to WDW.

2. Crews Cup Lounge at the Yacht Club - I remember your review of the cheeseburger, so on our arrival night at the BC last month, we went over there for dinner. DH had the cheeseburger and it was really delicious. I had the sirloin steak because I was really hungry, and it was excellent. I wonder if they use the same meat at the Crews Cup Lounge that they use at the Yachtsmen? In fact, we loved the food so much we went back for a second time on our last night.

I hope you enjoy the Flower and Garden Show. I fell in love with the pink Grey Goose slush at the food booth in France. It is one of those drinks which disguises the booze so well that you don't even know it is there. I like fruity drinks, so it was perfect for me.

There was a lot of good food there. Make sure you try the shrimp and grits. It is very good.

WOW! I absolutely love reading about your mom/daughter trip! I think it's fantastic. You two seem like such a great time. I was dying at your 3 Dinosaur ride pictures.

Ha ha! We were going for the dramatic effect for those ride photos. Sometimes we are not able to pull off what we perceive in our minds to be clever!

Monday August 26, 2013: Day 11, Part 1



The morning started with a lovely sunrise over Bay Lake. No surprise here since most mornings would find me awake early enough to catch the sunrise. It was an interesting sight to see the boat launches heading to their destinations across Bay Lake and the Seven Seas Lagoon. The big ferry boat was going towards the campgrounds. I couldn’t figure out where it was going since that was an odd direction. Maybe it was going for a test drive around Bay Lake with a new skipper!






We had a breakfast reservation at the Polynesian this morning. Good thing it is just a short monorail ride away so we can dilly dally up until 15 minutes before our ADR.

A quick photo on the way to the monorail

Looks like it was the Blue monorail for us this morning.

There's that ferry boat!

Breakfast was at Kona Café - still unrivaled as my favorite breakfast place in all of WDW. I'm not talking about just a casual affection for the most amazing thing to be served for breakfast anywhere... but a serious love for those awesome pineapple macadamia nut pancakes. A sigh escapes my lips even now when I think of those pancakes. To read my dining review and to see what Em ditched Tonga Toast to eat, click here.

Don't these look lovely?

Following our breakfast, the green monorail whisked us away to MK

When we arrived at Magic Kingdom, lo and behold within the 8 hours between park close and park open they had started to put up the fall decorations. Very nice! Of course they were also promoting the heck out of the MNSSHP.


We needed some Mickey love so we went straight to the Town Square Theater to see Back Stage Magic with Mickey Mouse. There was a 15 minute stand-by wait which perfectly fine because why??? Yes, there was A/C! I seriously need to travel during the 2 months out of the year when it is not 80+ degrees! Are there even 2 months of the year when the temps don't hit 80+... perhaps not since we were there in early December and you guessed it, it was 80 degrees at least a day or two. Which reminds me, I still have that TR yet to share! I'm so slow at keeping up with this TR let alone all my subscriptions that if I start that one before I finish here it will be a very neglected TR so I'll wait a little longer. Of course the longer I wait I may have 2 other TRs in the queue.


I absolutely love the turn of the century theming of the queue with the old fashioned calculator and other office implements. Every detail of this little ante room is perfectly placed.


We tried to crack the safe with no luck.


I need to take some lessons from Goofy apparently since the motto 'no sleeping in Disney' I appear to have taken to heart.



Cool props. Notice the hidden Mickey with the magic rings?

The crystal ball on top of the shelf is strangely reminiscent of the one in the Haunted Mansion with Madame Leota. In fact, if you can see the book on which the crystal ball is resting it says Leota cyrstals. Hmmmm… me thinks there’s a connection.

There was an adorable toddler in front of us in line who adored Mickey. She repeatedly kissed his nose and was giving him love. The grandmother kept apologizing to us because the little girl didn’t want to leave. It’s moments like this that I love to observe and enjoy. When you see little ones discovering the magic of Disney for the first time and embracing it with their whole heart it is so touching. We told the family no worries Mickey wasn’t due for his magic show yet. The exchange with Mickey was altogether precious.

We were ready to be greeted by Mickey who was ever so dapper in his red pants and yellow bowtie. The photopass photographer captured the memories for us and we were then on our way.






Since I had my PP+ card still out why not pose for more photos – these on Main Street.




Working our way up Main Street we hung a left at the top of the hub and went into Liberty Square. We headed to Fantasyland since we were on a mission to hitch a ride on Peter Pan’s Flight. We grabbed fast passes for the ride which had a return window of 11:25-12:25pm.

Once again, I must point out what a relic this will be before long.

Continued Next Post

Monday August 26, 2013: Day 11, Part 2




Across the way, IaSW had not a soul walking that way so we decided to take a boat ride with all of the little children of the world serenading us. We had a boat to ourselves. We’re special like that!






I can totally see that pole stuck in the back of the poor Irish lad. They make these kids dance and sing!

And don't think I didn't notice that the Taj Majal subbed a sheet of plastic for actual water.

60's era technology at it's finest.



After taking about 60 photos during the ride, oh wait I exaggerate, I took 53 photos during the ride, we were deposited back at the dock.

Next up was Haunted Mansion with a 10 minute stand-by wait. Ahhhh to enjoy a ride in our doom buggy while we observe 999 happy haunts.


“...And consider this dismaying observation: This chamber has no windows, and no doors... Which offers you this chilling challenge: to find a way out! Ha ha ha ha ha ha! Of course, there's always my way...”


Madame Leota’s creepy séance scene:
"Serpents and spiders, tail of a rat / Call in the spirits, wherever they're at. / Rap on a table, it's time to respond / Send us a message from somewhere beyond. / Goblins and ghoulies from last Halloween / Awaken the spirits with your tambourine. / Creepies and crawlies, toads in a pond / Let there be music from regions beyond. / Wizards and witches, wherever you dwell / Give us a hint by ringing a bell."

Madame Leota could use a little sunlight for that pale complexion.

I love this expression that I caught!

I was intent on getting the hidden mickey on the table but my photo skills are lacking so this is all I got.


Our doom buggy stalled in the attic scene with the bride holding the hatchet. It was the perfect opportunity to try and capture a clearer photo of this dear sweet lady err murderess. After being encouraged to “come baaack” we scurried out of there but not before snapping a photo of an unmanned ride console. I know, the things that capture my attention.

If your bride shows up to your wedding looking like this, RUN!












It would be a great addition to the attraction if they randomly had some of the doom buggies go off road into the graveyard.

Continued Next Post

Great update! I love the pictures you took of Haunted Mansion. They've made me so homesick for Disney! I just love that ride so much.

How sweet that you were able to watch that little girl interact with Mickey!

I want so badly to go to Kona one of these times for breakfast for those pancakes. They sound so good!

That shade of pink or coral looks really great on you!

I'm convinced it's just better to pay cash. I just posed an update on the live dining thread about our December Shula's dinner where we took a taxi to the Dolphin Hotel and the taxi driver said the transaction didn't go through. Yeahhhh okayyy. I paid cash and then saw that the charge was also on my cc. I contested it because I had asked for a receipt for when I paid cash and I made sure that I got the guy's name and badge number. But what a pain.

I'm glad you enjoyed Crew's Cup lounge not once but twice! I don't think many people know that they have a great little menu. I wonder if they use some of the same meat as Yachtsman and not Captain's Grill. Good question.

Your comment made me think this is a great option to plug a hole in our dining plans later this month. Thanks for the reminder!

Sorry I missed responding to your post Sue.

This will only be our second F&G time to travel to WDW but the first time since having the food booths. The shrimp and grits sounds familiar... I wonder if they had that for F&W somewhere too or if I'm imagining that.

Oh, I love fruity drinks so I'm glad that you described that. Gotta make a note of the pink Grey Goose slushie. I will definitely report back on that one.

I'm glad you enjoyed your trip!

Thank you! I'm sure there are a thousand other details in the HM ride that I've missed since it's too much to take in but I'm a big fan!

Oh my gosh! Best pancakes - EVER! If you ever have the opportunity try them. And you can't get the pancakes that are served with the Big Kahuna, they are not the same.

Such a fun update, my friend.

I wondered if you are doing a December TR.

I couldn't agree more. Kona is by far our favorite breakfast at Disney. I just hope it doesn't go away when they do whatever it is they are doing at the Poly with all this construction.

The interaction you described at the meet and greet with Mickey has a lot to do with keeping the magic alive. I just love watching little kids meet Mickey for the first time. It just warms my heart.

Love your photopass pictures on Main Street.

And no more paper fastpasses...still seems strange.

You got great shots in the Haunted Mansion.

Wow! Great shots on HM! You were lucky to have gotten stuck in there. I got stuck once in Madame Leota's room. To be honest, it wasn't that fun for photographs, even for me! I'd rather the attic.

Love that you quoted the ride too!

Those pancakes look heavenly!!

That's too sweet about the little girl with Mickey. I love seeing little ones so enamored with the fur characters! Like their stuffed animals just came to life!

Cute PP photos on Main Street!

I miss HM. Haven't ridden since 2012 because we thought Paxton would be too scared of it last year so we skipped. I've been mentally prepping him though and at least reminding him of all of the fun he has in the interactive queue, so maybe I can get back on it next month!

I bet watching the sunrise was amazing! Oh Kona breakfast! We have done dinner there, and breakfast at Capt Cooks for the tonga toast but we still have yet to have breakfast at Kona. I definitely want to try those macadamia nut pancakes! Wow I can’t believe how fast those decorations go up! This was August still, wasn’t it? I love the Mickey Mouse photos! That’s actually going to be our first stop in May, I’m so excited to find out how Gavin is going to do with the characters and Mickey is his main man. That poor Irish boy! Reminds me of that Family Guy episode if you’ve ever seen it. I’m so glad those doom buggies don’t randomly go out in the graveyard. That ride totally creeps me out LOL! Great pictures though!

Great pictures of the bride in the HM. Everytime I visit the HM I notice something new, now I will be looking for the hatch.

The pancake looked wonderful, now I will be sure to add them to my lost of must eats at DisneyWorld.
