Wow you ladies were busy this morning!

I love love love the Peter Pan and Wendy pictures! I candids of Peter are too funny! They are on my must meet list for my next trip!

The Chipmunks look so cute in their western outfits! I haven't seen them in person yet but they look adorable. I agree they would be super fun to hang out. They have been two of my favorites since I was little and was obsessed with the Rescue Rangers!

I'm glad everyone enjoyed Splash. I always want to take pictures on that ride but I get too into it and I can never get them to come out anyways!

You Mom and Ann's picture from Buzz is too cute! They look like they are having so much fun! Mine normally turn out like yours, so serious! I'm so bad at that ride yet I still get really into it!

Love the Ariel pictures, you too are adorable!

That's so cool for your friend Steven! I wish someone would take me on a spontaneous Disney trip!

Love that your mom crowed with Peter! That's so cute and awesome that she can get so into it!

My Buzz picture ALWAYS looks like that! I usually wonder why the heck they even have a photopass in that ride!

You're right about the Liberty Square streets! Gross detail, but hey, it wouldn't be Disney if they didn't pay attention to that stuff! Another fun fact: the shutters on the Liberty Square buildings are lopsided because they used to be fastened with leather instead of metal. After the leather was exposed to the elements, it would stretch!

That sucks that Photopass was so horrible, I've never used it. Thank god for Instagram!

Can't wait to hear more!

Haha, I finally have plans to see Enchanted Tales in December, with FP+ no less.

"Cheating's just winning faster!" I am SO stealing that line.

You're mom is so great! She just gets so into the spirit of it. Just so great.

I think you're right about the brown pathways. Sometimes Disney's dedication to detail ain't pretty.

Goofy is always so great, but for my money (at least so far) The Great Goofini seems to always be just a notch above. So much fun!

I just don't care what anyone says regarding the princesses. Meeting a mermaid is just the absolute best!!! Yes, I may be biased.
Hahah what can I say?! I like sponteniety!

Yay!! Enchanted tales is fun, hope you enjoy it!

Im really happy Mom gets into everything as much as she does!! Its so great!!

Goofy is just getting better every time i meet him, so glad!!

What a travel day! I'd have been stressed if I hadn't heard from the other half of my travel party shortly before boarding. I remember what happened that other time with your flight. Yikes!

I LOVE GF resort. The smell. The music. The beautiful ceilings and chandeliers. So lovely!

I've never been to CM and we've stayed there at BLT about 5 or 6 times. It gets such mixed reviews. Bummer that the characters were in a rush. You are right, Disney is for ALL ages! Don't overlook the big kids here.

How very nice of you to do the special birthday balloon bouquet. Very thoughtful indeed!

Farting Perry! Hilarious. Now Paige will think of you whenever he let's one go!

Loved the Peter and Wendy meet up. I've never seen both of them together and am dying to do that. Seriously that's cool.
And Ariel too. Great photos.

Enjoy your trip and I look forward to hearing about it!!
Ahahaa yeah, its hilarious when i know so much about airports. So much traveleling!! Ugn, i was glad they showed up finally!!

GF will get stayed at one day soon!! I love it so much!! And you should defijitely
Chwck out CM!!

Ahh!! Theyre amazing!! Im hoping wendy's staying out for a while now!!

Thank you!!!

All caught up! Hope you are having a wonderful time at WDW right now!

Looks like you had a wonderful time so far. I really need to go in September sometime for those short lines. 15 minutes for Ariel?!?!? We never saw her line shorter than 50 minutes.

You spin a pretty good yarn, Katt, and as a Disney father who writes these himself it is always magical to find other quality reports.

I will be eagerly following along so keep up the good work!

Ugh, that sucks about your luggage ripping. I agree though. "Darn, I have to buy another Disney bag!"

Woof, I'm glad you guys didn't have another layover situation like the last time! I was thinking the same thing when you started writing it, but I'm so glad they made it.

I like your Minnie outfit. Very cute.

You also look totally cute Disbounding as Rapunzel. I'd obviously need a full on wig to pull that off.

Gah! I know, in November it will all be done and ready for us to ride!!!!!!!!! HP expansion and Mine Train. We should definitely do our Universal day together.

Haha, your Mom and Peter crowing in that video was priceless.

My Donald's in that area always seem to be less than stellar too. Goofy is always amazing, and Donald is all meh. I hate that!
Heehee!! It was an amazing trip, a little too short lol!

I was so close to having a panic attack, like group 3 was boarding by the time they showed up and I was NOT okay with getting on that plane without them! They would be SO FREAKING LOST Lol.

Thank you!! Disneybounding makes the trip a lot more fun, especially when the characters are into it! Aahaha, you could still do it!

Yes yes yes!!! I plan to do as much overlapping as possible as I'm thinking I'll be solo, so a Universal date is definitely in order!!

Donlad needs to step up his game while he's at the circus! Lol

We had a great time! Ug, Peter is always so fantastic, definitely make a stop for him next trip, especially now that he's with Wendy it's so much fun!!

I always want to take more pictures ON the rides, but my camera always ends up being put away, I'm hoping to get a waterproof case for my phone by next time so that we can take more pictures!

They're so cute!! Lol!

Ahaha, yeah, it was pretty great that he could come on such short notice, and I've definitely created another Disney monster, he's already talking about going back in a month, and that was before we even LEFT!

Peter was great! And I know! Like, that ride, everyone's so into it, and you can never really tell when they're taking YOUR picture, I think it's kinda a waste lol, oh well!

I've totally heard that one too!! Photopass was not great this time around, I was glad to have my own pictures, we also didn't use it this past trip!

It was great!!

yes!! You do!! WOW that's a long wait!! I think her line is never really right either, like, if it curves around more than the twice, then yeah, it's gonna be a long wait, but otherwise, it won't!

A Dream For Shade!

Hey friends!! Just thought I'd do a little life update here before taking off on the update!
First off: for those of you who follow along on facebook/instagram, you know that this past trip was AMAZING! It was a complete and total blast and I will NEVER grow tired of Halloween Festivities at Disney! Steven was an amazing addition to our Disney group, he's always been a Disney lover but to see him actually back in WDW after 5 years it was great! He's definitely an addict and we are half planning a trip back in DECEMBER! Yay! He also has the dreams of working down there, so you can definitely expect to see us working as a team towards our dreams now! I figured that I won't do a very in depth TR for that trip as I don't have a BUNCH of notes, but I do have some, and plan on working on that TR asap and then tacking it on to the end of this one since it fits!

Secondly, I have officially found and singned a lease for a new house! The oen I'm in now just hasn't been lovely, and the past few months have been hell dealing with bills not being paid and mess not being cleaned up by other roomates. So finally today we found a different place that's also super close to work! YAY!

Hope you're all doing well and ready for this next update!!

******************

We were in the Magic Kingdom, and there’s something that is a MUST DO every time one is in the Magic Kingdom, or at least once a trip, and that is watch Dream Along with Mickey, in its entirety, so that was the next thing on our “to do” list! We waited in the shade til closer to show time and grabbed a spot near the left side of the castle to watch!





Just look at that kick!!





Goofy is so far done with your dumbness…just done…







The dresses for this show are seriously gorgeous, even Aurora’s, which is more stiff like the old one isn’t that bad, it still somehow flows better than the old greet dress? Lol.






Snow White’s just the cutest little thing!



Of course, even fairytales are no good without a little ADVENTURE!







A little Wendy bird was spotted and she thought the whole thing was a little bit funny seeing Donald as Cap Hook!









It’s just a CLOCK! Don’t be silly Hook, Goofy thinks you’re pretty funny now!



But then again, there’s always someone who really doesn’t have time for sillyness and doesn’t think anything’s funny at all…





And when everyone’s worried and scared, there’s got to be at least one hero willing to stand up and fight for a change, right?





Dreams come truuuueeeeeeee!!! Yayaya. It’s a cute show, but holy, I don’t think any of us really appreciated it in its glory today. It was the 1:15 showing and it was just WAY too hot out there, we should have seeked cover in the cooler, air conditioned attractions, but no, I decided it was time for show, and I even felt like I was DYING under that sun right there. I was sure I was getting horrendously burnt, especially since the back of my tank was all lace. Uh-oh… Lol.

Thankfully the show wasn’t that long and we stopped for a cold water break and I quickly suggested heading over to Pirates, and nice adventure through the misty seas, and most importantly, air conditioning!!

Confession: I have never actually stopped and watched that show! I mean, I've seen it going on, but I was always headed towards somewhere else so have always skipped it. It does look cute though, despite the extreme heat you experienced!

Glad to hear you had a good trip and that you now have another partner in crime for your trips!

OMG are you really thinking of another trip in December??? Please keep me up to date on that one.

OK, so I looked at that kick and quickly realized I will never be a dancer. Thanks for killing my dreams Katt!

I STILL haven't seen this from beginning to end, BUT, I do plan to fix that next month FOR SURE!!!

I just love all the close up photos! Almost like being there.

Wow, half planning a trip in December?! Man, and everyone thinks I go a lot!

Congrats on a new house, especially something that's close to work!

Dream Along with Mickey on a Katt TR? Shocking!

Okay, that dude kicked his leg super high! I don't think I could even kick my leg that high back in my dancing days!
