Great pics from the Liberty Belle- Congrats on crossing another item off your must do list. I've never ridden it- it's on my list for this August (depending on how hot out it is)

It's been too long since we have enjoyed that relaxing ride on the Riverboat! Such a nice respite from the hustle & bustle of the park.

She was more than glad to pose with us and even removed her bonnet and let down her hair.
How sweet! I bet that made her so happy that y'all wanted photos with her.

Lovely update! I smiled the whole time I was scrolling through!

Glad you enjoyed the riverboat ride - definitely something that should be done at least once with the items you only get to see on that trip and the unique view of some other attractions

That's cool that they split your lunch into two bowls for you! And both your desserts looked great!

I am an awful person and have lagged behind so badly but am finally caught up. My wedding is in 2 weeks so my head has been elsewhere lately. Thank goodness the DisneyMoon is all planned or else I'd be having a complete meltdown at this point.

I am SO EXCITED for Em. She is going to make the most stunning bride!

I know we are getting close to the point in your trip when you get to visit our favorite dreamboat, I mean, Cast Member

P.S. We needed a reservation for dinner on Mother's Day and my mom chose Tony's. I already briefed Aaron about how I may end up fangirling big time that night

Yes, the Liberty Belle. We've not done that in five or six years. It seems every time we are there, it is clsoed for refurb. It's on my list of definite want to do's in September.

I love that you and Em have pictures taken with outstanding CM's. That's a nice little tradition you have there.

yay! I wasn't too sure about the liberty belle, but now I think we will have to try it out

We were gonna go to LTT for lunch but ended up having to cut it out. We'll probably go to Columbia Harbor House instead since it is counter service, but my, you are making me regret that cut!!!!!

We've yet to ride the Liberty Belle too. Just looks so hot on there and we are running to the next "ride". Great pics and I need to try it out next time. Luckily this year I had a few hours to tour Epcot by myself and finally seen Ellen and Michael Jackson rides. Glad I didn't torture my kids with those rides yet.
Also love the new version of selfie pics.

YAY Bucket List Item!! I guess as a place to relax, the lower level of the Liberty Belle makes sense. But I'm all about where the action is, so upper level for me (on the one time I actually did this).
I think my fav thing was the new vantage points for BTM that you can't see otherwise.

Does Alligator Swamp remind you of the beginning of D-Land's Pirates? It does for me.

YES I LOVE GETTING PHOTO'S WITH CM'S!!!!! I love that you do too. Character photos are great, no doubt, but think I cherish the CM photos even more.

Aw man, no "Brenda party from Beverly Hills"? Denied!! That still makes me chuckle.

I'm glad you crossed something else off your list! Your pictures from the Liberty Belle turned out really great. We've never been on it, but hope to eventually. I love the selfies you took

Fun trip on the boat! I have only done it once, but it looks as though I may have missed a few things! I must go do it again. Maybe twice so that I can stay on one side of the boat each way around and not miss anything.

I haven't done the Liberty Belle in a very long time, and DH never has!
You got some great pics from up there, Brenda! And a very interesting story about Wilson's Cave Inn too. I don't remember ever seeing that before! Glad you were able to mark that one off your list.
Adorable pictures with the cm for the Christmas shop, I love that place so much! It's so adorable.
I kind of like the Jack Skellington shoe... But agree it doesn't make much sense!
