Bubbly CMs at the ME counter are the best! How odd that the first row of seats were reserved!? Did anyone come sit in them? Maybe the driver just didn't want people sitting too close to him!

Ugh the lovebugs. They were EVERYWHERE!

AH the SAME THING happened to the ME video on our bus! I almost forgot about that. I was a little sad about it at the time. The volume would be like non-existant and then the driver would turn it up and it would start working again so it was like blasting at us.

The Wilderness Lodge is extremely gorgeous! Wow that is an amazing sunset and your pictures are SO pretty. I can't wait for another TR full of them!

Oh goodness that peanut butter cupcake looks amazing! I'm so sad that I never had one! Love the anniversary message on your cups. I'm pretty excited about the addition of Starbucks to the Disney parks.

Love the decorations & Starbucks - we are headed to DLR in a couple days and that's what I'm most excited about there (ESPECIALLY a snickerdoodle/caramel/pumpkin treat at BTMBBQ)

Hi Dani! Great updates. I can't believe your video didn't work on the bus. I love watching it in the way in. Wilderness Lodge looks so beautiful. What is the new La Bolange at Starbucks? We don't have that in the east coast stores yet. (I worked for starbucks for 7 years so just curious). OMG, I'm so excited to see MK with the fall decorations. Reading your update just made me a bit more excited. I've never been in OCT before. 13 days!!! -Amanda

HOW DID I NOT KNOW YOU STARTED THIS ALREADY?!

adding to the compliment train -- your pictures are seriously perfect.
I can't get over them. every time I read an update, I always kick myself for not lugging my camera around.

OH MY GOD THE LOVE BUGS.
all I can think about is how much they grossed out Matt.


bahahahahha

Posting for the first time ever to say how excited I am for this TR! This August I went to WDW for the first time since 2005 and I read a bunch of TRs in preparation, and yours were my favorites. And now I have another TR to read to tide me over until my next trip!

It was very nice, we liked it.. and very cozy! Wilderness Lodge food is worth a trip, and I'll get to how even the quick service food is super good.

MK is so pretty during the Fall! I was a big fan. And yeah, Starbucks only enhanced our evening, clearly. It kept us going!

Hahaha, Dunkin' Donuts out in MA is equal to Starbucks here. We don't have DD in Seattle, I do sometimes miss it. But Starbucks takes care of that!

The Wilderness Lodge is beautiful. I've only stayed there once so far on my DVC tour. I love the resort, but I'm a huge Beach Club, Boardwalk fan, so it's kinda hard to go elsewhere sometimes.

Love the pictures in Magic Kingdom during that time of year.
It was so weird! Especially since we left with no one in them!

WL is definitely beautiful, but I'll get into my feelings on WL vs. Beach Club later, haha. Let's just say you and I think alike.

I am a big fan of Fall in Disney World for sure!

The sunset pics from the boat are so pretty. And MK at dusk is always gorgeous, but HELLO HALLOWEEN!!! I love Christmas at WDW, but Halloween now has a special place in my heart since I associate it with DS's birthday.

That was so sweet of the girl making your coffee to write you a Happy Anniversary message on the cup! Matt looks like he was REALLY happy to have that coffee right about then. My first attraction guess is Pirates!
I know, it was working out so darn well for us!! It was a very comfy room, and I was looking forward to more photos later when I wasn't running out the door for a boat, hahaha.

Thanks, it was the perfect timing to be taking a boat to MK! Halloween is just an amazing time to be in Disney World, I must say! The decorations are just so perfect.

Yeah, she was super nice... and that wasn't the last time we saw her, hahaha. He was SO happy about drinking good coffee in Magic Kingdom. It was a beautiful thing. And I'd venture to say that was a good guess, hahaha.

The new La Boulange pastries aren't good?? I was curious about them but since I am on a diet I can't have them.
Thank you so much!! It was such a beautiful night! Starbucks made me happy though... I thought that cupcake was so good, it made up for the lack of Disney pastries, haha. I was kind of surprised they didn't have more, since in Disneyland there's definitely more Disney pastries.

Ugh no, the La Boulange aren't very good, and they're overpriced, and the calories just aren't worth it! The only thing I get to eat at Starbucks now are breakfast sandwiches.

Great update. So happy you are back home and so far having a wonderful first day.
Thank you so much! I agree, Fall in Disney World is amazing and the decorations are just wonderful!

It was so nice to be back and our night had started off SO well, too!

MAGIC KINGDOM AT DUSK = Oh my gosh! Isn't it perfect?! Gahh. I want to be there right now. The Halloween/Fall decorations just add to the perfection. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

How cute are those Starbucks cups with all of the Disney touches on them? I wish my local Starbucks had those!
YAY! So glad to have you here!

We were way ahead of schedule and it was a beautiful thing!

It definitely is perfect, I am really missing it right now... Posting these photos makes me so excited for future trips, though!

I love the Disney Starbucks cups. They're so adorable!

It was beautiful, seriously! And it was a great way to get started on our vacation because it wasn't too hot, either.

I'm really excited to share this trip with you guys, it's going to be an awesome one!

We love Wilderness Lodge - even though we're from the PNW we really enjoy staying there. I can relate to how long those hallways are. On our first trip there, my then 8 year old son went missing, and we ran up and down those halls in a panic looking for him. He had seen Grandpa outside our room and decided to head down in the elevator with him, but forgot to mention it to mom and dad

Off topic - wasn't it beautiful in Seattle today? 75 degrees in October? I guess it's to make up for the weather debacle that happened last Saturday
Thank you so much! That's such a nice compliment.

I'm with you, WL is a beautiful resort! I can't imagine being stuck in one of those long halls. I won't lie, your story is kind of making me think of The Shining, hahaha, just in terms of the long halls there! I'm glad you guys found him though, that had to be terrifying!

Oh man, Seattle was having some gorgeous weather! Saturday was absolutely insane though, I couldn't believe the rain we got!

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!!
Ahh that is really smart! You can also get a D3100 or D3200, which are also fantastic cameras! I will say though, what makes some of these photos pretty awesome isn't so much the camera, it's the lens... My 35mm f/1.8 lens. It's around $200, but SO worth it. It takes amazing photos, really great portraits, and is fantastic in the dark. Unfortunately, I didn't use this lens the entire trip and I'm kicking myself for it. I switched to a different lens and I was not as happy with the photos as when I used this lens. But at least I know now! But either way, that's such an awesome compliment. I'm STILL really trying to learn how to get the best use out of my camera, but it's a fun hobby to have!

Oh my gosh, I was laughing so hard. He was trying his best to get that stupid thing working, but it didn't happen.

Golden Hour, on a boat, to MK. Life was perfect.

Ahh thank you! I was SO excited to be there and have all of those amazing decorations up! I'm a big fan of Disney parks during Fall and Winter!

The PSL was kind of pricey, like, definitely more than what we pay. BUT they are snack credits (Venti included) if you're doing the DDP! I'm not joking when I saw that we spent a LOT of money at Starbucks this trip, but it was worth it. And Matt was very happy!

Iced PSLs! Nice work, was it still hot out that night? I like the Happy anniversary message written on your cups
Thanks so much! It was absolutely perfect that night.

Iced PSLs are the way to go. I was pretty warm, but nothing like during the day. I tend to drink iced drinks unless it's really cold out. And yeah, I loved that she put that on our cups, I thought it was adorable.

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!
Hahaha, I can't help it, I say that a lot! Or Holy canoli, or holy poop.. I could go on here. I love that your 3 year old says it though, hahaha.

Aw thanks! I'm a little obsessed with taking photos and video of Disney balloons! They always make me happy.

WL is a fabulous resort! I'm looking forward to chatting more about it!

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!
I know, it was making me super happy! I can't remember what else came on, but I know it made me a happy lady! Wilderness Lodge is gorgeous and we were so happy to be checking in there!

Thanks!! And that's too funny we were so nearby each other! Yeah, I was happy they kept them the same card, except now knowing when we go to Disneyland having to reactivate them, that'll be kind of a pain. I'm hoping it's a relatively easy thing to take care of though.

That cupcake was SO good. And coffee is Matt's favorite thing in the world, haha, so we had a LOT of it this trip!

Aw thanks so much! I was happy with how they turned out. I wish I was back there right now, too, wah.

Thanks so much! And yeah, I have NO idea why but it will sometimes show the most random days on it! I thought maybe it was just me/my computer, but then I hear this from you.. yet on my computer, it's displaying the right amount of days, 36! So weird.

I love all the fall decorations so so so much!!
Thanks so so much!

We were already big fans of Wilderness Lodge, it's such an amazing resort!

MK really is home sweet home... I miss it, but know we'll be back again for sure next year is helpful. Plus Disneyland soon, so yay! Helps with the Post Disney Depression.

Fall in Disney World is a beautiful time to be there.. I mean the weather isn't fall-y, but the decorations are wonderful!

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.
Daw thank you! Most of what I posted during the trip were just from my phone, haha, but thank you!

Yeah, I think because we were driving, his only solution was to keep smacking the thing in hopes of it working properly, hahaha. He was distracted enough as it was! I think he wanted to throw it out the window, I just laughed a lot.

PSLs are the best! That was definitely not the last one we had on this trip! It's so perfect though, especially when it's all fally and perfect.

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.
Hahaha, maybe! I wish I'd know, I'd have sat up there instead!

I love riding the boat to MK! It's up there for being my favorite mode of transportation!

And yeah, it's weird how you see the castle and it feels like no time has passed! Really weird!

I was definitely tempted to bring home those cups with me, I won't lie!!

Yeah, it was beautiful... I was a huge fan of it!

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!
Awesome, so happy to have you here! Dusk is the best time to be there... But I agree, park opening is awesome, and park closing is amazing, so basically, MK is just amazing all the time, hahaha.. though I'd say afternoon is probably my least favorite. Hottest and crowdest time of the day!

I really loved the boat rides from WL to MK. But it was also very warm there during our trip, which I will get into, haha, so I love the nice breeze while on the boat!!

Thanks again for joining!

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.
The bug splats were gross, but the broken DVD player was funnier than anything else! It was better than our other bus driver from January who told us we could take a nap, hahaha.

WL is such a great resort. VWL definitely doesn't get a ton of love, which is weird, because the Villas building is SO neat!

Thanks, we were lucky with such a great sunset to start the trip!

I was definitely sad, but we got used to it. I did like the fun little noise it made when it was happy that my card/fingerprint worked, hahaha.

Yeah, that CM was adorable! And I think Matt was just beyond elated to be in MK AND have his coffee, hahaha.

POTC you say?! Well, I'd say that's a good guess, haha.

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.....

Hi Linda! I'm really happy you've decided to read along with this TR, and yeah, I'd say my love for Disney is infinite, haha.

I hope you enjoy this TR, and definitely feel free to check out my other ones, too!

Oh goodness that peanut butter cupcake looks amazing! I'm so sad that I never had one! Love the anniversary message on your cups. I'm pretty excited about the addition of Starbucks to the Disney parks.
I so agree, the CMs can really start things off right! And no, no one sat in them! It was just weird, haha.

Those lovebugs were definitely all over, but fortunately didn't bother us too much!

HAHA maybe it was the same bug!! We were right under the screen so we could hear it kind of, but I was so happy I didn't even care.

WL is beautiful! And thank you so much!

That Peanut Butter cupcake was to die for. You must try it if they have it again!! You won't regret it! Starbucks in Epcot and MK made us some happy campers!

Thank you! And yeah, fortunately we were right under the speaker, so we could hear it, but it was funny it just wasn't working.

WL is awesome! And be happy you don't have La Boulange yet. It's their new set of pastries and they're not very good. They're overpriced and the calories are just way high for what you get. I prefer the old pastries.

MK in the Fall is amazing, you are going to have the BEST trip!!

I can't get over them. every time I read an update, I always kick myself for not lugging my camera around.

OH MY GOD THE LOVE BUGS.
all I can think about is how much they grossed out Matt.

bahahahahha
Hahaha I have no idea! I just started it though, so no big deal!

Thanks though, I was happy with my photos that night! Unfortunately the quality of my photos isn't that great the entire trip for a variety of reasons. If I could go back, I wouldn't have switched to my kit lens at all during the trip, except maybe for fireworks video... that wasn't the best call, but I'm glad I at least learned from that!

Hahaha I forgot how much he hated them. I usually hate bugs but they didn't really bother me that much for some reason!

Aw yay! I'm glad you're here and you're so excited!! That makes me so happy! This TR is going to be epic, so I'm glad you're here for the long haul!

I will hanging on your every word, I have been very excited for this trip report. I enjoyed your last one especially the pictures. Your skills must have grown even more because the ones on here have been just perfect. I love the dusky saturation and the excitement that shows through

I just said this on Twitter, but your pictures are SO AMAZING!!! I need to buy whatever camera you use and then teach myself how to take pictures with it, because I can't deal with the amateur-ness of my pictures with my little point and shoot!

Anyway, isn't the Wilderness Lodge the best? Seriously, there is just something about that place that screams home to me. If I could stay there, AKL and the Beach Club on every trip, I'd be the happiest person alive! The room in the villa is really cute!

Yay MK!!! Wow, that sunset...I miss Disney sunsets!

Again, I love all of your pictures, between the lights on Main Street and the sunset, it looks like everything is glowing, it's perfect! I honestly do not know if I've ever been in MK at that time of day before...



Can I just tell you how obsessed with this picture I am??? I'm seriously thinking of making it the background on my computer, and I haven't changed the background in like, 2 years because I have the most perfect picture of the castle on there and I can't bring myself to change it...but this picture might do it!

Ahh, Starbucks in MK! Probably going to be my first stop whenever I get there again too...I love it!
