Dani, before I comment on this latest update I have to tell you I have decided to save up for your camera. Well not YOURS, but the same one. hahaha. Your pictures are just SO stunning! I used to be so into photography and I know having this camera will get me back into it more than ever! So thanks for the inspiration, hopefully I will be as talented as you are when I am equipped with such an awesome camera. :D

I LOLed at the DME driver smacking the thing to get it working. Most electronics can be fixed this way!

OOooOH you were on the boat during the Golden Hour. SO BEAUTIFUL!

Your. PICTURES. OF MAIN STREET!!! AHHHHHHHHH I LOVE THE HALLOWEEN DECORATIONS SO MUCH! This is really taking me back to my trip last year. AHH. I am so glad you got to see Disney around Halloween time.

Was the PSL like 9284938 dollars? I'm curious because here it's like 4.39 for a small size and 4.99 for a large. I'm so obsessed with them but $5 every time I need a coffee just kills my soul.

So looking forward to more!!

Wow, MK was especially gorgeous that night, fab photos! Always nice when you make it there a bit before you expect.

Iced PSLs! Nice work, was it still hot out that night? I like the Happy anniversary message written on your cups

So I knew I'd love this update as soon as I saw the words "holy crap"! it's totally something I say--so much so that my 3 year old repeated it, which actually made me want to laugh but I put my mommy face on and tried to explain why it wasn't appropriate for her to say. Kids!

I adore all your sunset and Mickey pumpkin pics, but I am in LOVE with the balloon pictures! I just love those!!

WL looks like a place my DH would like to stay. Can't wait to see more of it!

Ahhhh hearing the MSEP music on the bus is always one of my favorite things!!!! I haven’t even gotten to WL pictures and Im dying, I know they’re gonna be so great and I’m gonna be all “well crap, now I’ve got to stay there too!” Yup…nailed it…need to stay there!

Oh my god those sunset photos are UNBELIEVABLE!! Aw man, we were so close to each other! We were headed over to Chef Mickey’s as you guys were pulling into MK. Oh thank goodness they stay the same card, I always felt so cool with a golden ticket I would hate to have a boring one lol!

Oh dear god that cupcake, I knew I should have gotten it. Also, I am deeply disappointed that I never had a pumpkin spice while I was down there, I was just always so full, or had things to do, or margarita’s to drink instead! Lol. Next fall!

I’m dying, your photos of Fall on Main Street are seriously perfect, I wish I could capture that feeling and essence of it and you do it wonderfully, I wish I was there right nowwwww!

Your photos are OMG AMAZING! I mean, I was so excited when you were posting pics during your trip, but these are on another level! I'm seriously homesick just looking at them -- so beautiful!

Also, I'm surprised the ME driver didn't turning off the DVD player and turning in on again. That's the #1 go-to for all IT solutions according to every help desk IT guy I've ever spoken to (though, honestly, I'm pretty sure that "turn it off and turn it on" would be better received on my end if I hadn't ALREADY DONE THAT 14 TIMES BEFORE I CALLED FOR HELP!)! Either that or you could go the route I normally want to go and just throw it out the window.

Pumpkin spice lattes just seem so perfect for the moment you were in (judging by the pictures, of course). Fall is my ABSOLUTE favorite season and the combination of pumpkin, Disney and fall just sets my heart aflutter.
If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.

I'm on Twitter and Instagram! Come say hi!

Hmmm, maybe the front row was reserved for you and you just didn't know it!

Yeah, I'd say that's a PERFECT way to head to the first park of the trip.

I so agree Dani. Seeing the castle for the first time each trip is when it all really sets in. It's so strange though that right after that initial delight, I feel like I've never left.

That is so cute with the writing on your cups!!!! I would totally be taking those cups home with me.

So So glad you got to experience the amazing-ness of Main Street at Halloween right off the bat. I LOVED it and I can't wait to see it again.

Gorgeous sunset! Great photos! They are all so beautiful. Magic Kingdom at dusk is just the best!
The ticker had to be deleted. All hope is not lost though. I don't know how. I don't know when. But I'm going back!

I was SO SO happy to see all of the Halloween decorations up! I had to just stop and get a photo, since this was my first time going during the Halloween/Fall season!

Matt was actually really patient with me in wanting to stop and take a ton of photos, which was nice. There is something so perfect about Main Street at night, nevermind all of the amazing decorations that were up, which just made things even better.

We finally turned the corner and I was so happy to see the castle again... whenever I see it for the first time during a trip, I just stop and stare and it's right there at that moment that I am home again. THAT is when everything feels real, it's not a dream anymore, we are home.

It couldn't have been more perfect, either. It was dusk, Main Street was lit up, people were leaving the park, and the balloons. They were everywhere.

Matt had been a patient husband, but I knew he wanted to get to his first stop and top priority at that moment... Main Street Bakery/STARBUCKS!!

We were both PUMPED to have Starbucks available to fuel our trip, and we were both needing it to keep going tonight, especially Matt, since he'd been up since 4:15.

It wasn't very busy inside, so we walked up pretty quickly to the register to order.

There were all sorts of Starbucks treats (from their OLD bakery, not this new La Boulange that you see in the normal stores, which is terrible), AND Disney treats.

The Peanut Butter Cupcake was looking amazingly good, so I decided to get one to eat.

There was someone by the pastry case who took my order for my cupcake, then we ordered our drinks (Pumpkin Spice Lattes) at the register. The girl there noticed our anniversary pins, and started chatting with us while writing on our cup, which was fun! We paid and since we were trying to actually get stuff done, I went over to a counter area to dig into my cupcake while we waited for our drinks.

ERMAHGERD, this cupcake was amazingly good. Seriously, the frosting was perfect, and the cake was moist, and it has little peanut butter chips inside of it. It was SO good, but also really rich, so I had Matt help me eat it, as well.

Matt picked up our drinks for us at the counter, and the girl at the register had written a cute little message on our cups for us.

Matt was just a happy man to have his Starbucks!

We finished eating that delicious cupcake, took our drinks, then headed back out to Main Street, where the sky had gotten a bit darker.

The Mickey pumpkins were flickering even more brightly, and I was just so happy. I could have just stood there for the next few hours and people-watched/castle-watched and be perfectly content.

We decided to head over towards Adventureland to hop on our first attraction of the trip...

Continued in next post
Love..love...loving your TR!!!! Main Street is so piddy!!!!!

I'm in!

Your photos are beautiful. Isn't dusk the most perfect time to be in the MK? (Or one of the most perfect times, anyway. Right away in the morning's pretty perfect, too. So is park closing. But I still think I like dusk the best!)

I'm really curious to hear about your stay at VWL...I stayed at WL once in January, and all those boat rides got a little too chilly for me! But I think I'd probably love it at a different time of year.

Looking forward to more!

Nothing like love bug splats and a cruddy DVD player to add to the excitement!

I love WL so much, and I'm so glad to see the inside of a DVC unit there again! I feel like VWL really gets skipped over.

Those sunset pictures from the boat ride are unreal!

I'm glad you thought it was a little sad to not be feeding a ticket in... I definitely go those feels as well.

How cute that the CM wrote a little anniversary message on there! I hope that's only the beginning of the magic! I love how happy Matt looks to be at MK.

Adventureland, you say? Hmm.. I'm going with POTC.

Hi, Dani!

My name is Linda, and I've not had the pleasure of reading any of your previous trip reports (but I will now!). However, I can see from just the first few posts that you have the same LURV of Disney that many of us have. I am excited to follow along on your report and enjoy some of those amazing pics!

I've been following several other TR writers (and I notice many of the same folks following you), and I'm truly psyched to get to hear about your latest adventure!

Carry on.....

I really need a new ticker.
