Day 2 - More MNSSHP!

Day 2 - More MNSSHP!

We got to Main Street and found a great spot to watch. Celebrate the Magic was so cool and Hallowishes was stunning We were all blown away by how awesome it was! We were even able to get some PP during it too!

After that, we headed over to Liberty Square to find a spot for the parade. We found a great spot across from Hall of Presidents, in front of the Christmas Shoppe. Mom and Dad held our spot while I ran over to the pin store in Frontierland to grab the Halloween Party pins and another mystery pin box. This time I finally got character ones! I tried to buy some water and popcorn from the popcorn cart in Liberty Square. The line was long and I waited about 10 minutes without even moving so I gave up (Good thing for those Monsters Inc gummies ).

After some waiting, the headless horseman came riding down (so cool!) and the parade started shortly after. Now prepare for parade picture overload!

I loved it so much!! At the end of the parade when they give out candy we ended up getting SO many lollipops too!

Once the parade was over, we headed back towards the castle. We stopped at Sleepy Hollow to grab something to drink and my dad decided to sit at a table and wait for us while we attended the last Villain show of the night. My goal was to meet Maleficent at this show. When we got there, there was already a small line forming for her, so we stood in line as well and watched the show from there. I was so happy to be seeing the show yet again! Once it was over the line moved quickly and we finally met Maleficent! Ahh she was perfect and the meet was exactly what I hoped it would be!

Mom really wanted to meet Dr. Facilier (and of course I wanted to too!) so we hopped in his line and hoped we'd have time to meet him before he left. The coordinator said they'd only be out for 2 more minutes and the family that was currently with him was taking forever, but luckily they finished and everyone moved quickly enough so we got to meet him! He was awesome

We grabbed dad and decided to call it a night. We were all really tired from such a long day. Of course we got our Peeps before heading to the bus stop! I don't think we waited too long for a bus and we all pretty much passed out once we got to the hotel. I guess 15 hours at MK will do that to you I was super pleased with my first MNSSHP (and our first day in the parks!) and the fact that I got everything I wanted to do that night accomplished!


List of Firsts for the day:
-Watched the Welcome Show
-Met Fairy Godmother and Peter & Wendy
-Watched Dream Along with Mickey
-Ate Lunch at BOG
-Rode Barnstormer
-Attended MNSSHP and experienced the exclusives that came along with it!



Up next: Epcot!

I loved Hallowishes too!

Great pictures of the parade. I especially like the one of Pluto!

I wish we would have had time to meet more of the villians. We only made it to one show and it was jam packed.

Man, y'all certainly have gotten a lot accomplished at the party so far! Pretty impressive that you were able to meet 3 villains after the show too. That was one of the things on my list that we just didn't end up having time to do, but we still had a great party. Lucky you that you still had another one to look forward to!

Your Ursula shirt was perfect for the party too. Great choice!

I know, isn't Hallowishes amazing???? Especially for those who've never seen the perimeter fireworks before. So cool. And you got photos with the fireworks going off!!!!! Super cool!!!

Boo To You is easily my favourite parade ever, Disney or otherwise. So good!

I loved meeting Maleficent too. I never got to meet Dr. Facilier though, but he has to be one of the neatest characters to meet. He's HUGE!!

Thank you!

I'm sorry I think we were really lucky that night. I saw on our second night how crazy it could get.

Dr. Facilier was so huge and his hands were super creepy!

Day 3 - Epcot

Day 3 - Epcot

Despite our long night prior, we were still up bright and early today to head to Epcot! We got to the park around 8:30 and waited in line until the turnstiles opened around 8:55.


388 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We headed straight to The Land to ride Soarin standby.


389 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

I'm such a fan of this ride and I knew Mom & Dad would love it too. And did they? Yes they did! When we got off we grabbed FP to ride again later and headed over to the other side of the park to grab Test Track FPs. Along the way we spotted Chip & Dale out! The line wasn't too long but I was focused on getting those FPs as I noticed the return times were getting pretty far out. Mom & Dad wanted to meet Chip & Dale and since I already met them on my last trip, I told them to get in line while I went ahead and got the FPs.


358 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We met back up and rode Mission Space (Green side). This ride is fun but it's definitely a "can miss" for me. once we got off we checked out the Festival Center for a few minutes. I bought one of the F&W pins and also fell in love this guy:

We then headed back to the front of the park to grab some PP photos since I rushed us straight to the land when we got into the park

wdw201328011207653_6858477604 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We were going to ride Spaceship Earth but the line was wayyy too long. Instead we spotted Pluto meeting so we got in line to meet him! We waited about 15-20 minutes before we got to meet the lovable pup I actually didn't meet him on my last trip so I was excited!


wdw201328011216364_6858477513 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

After meeting Pluto we decided to go on the Nemo ride and check out the Seas pavillion. I really love all the tanks they have and next time I go to Disney I vow to spend some more time checking them out!

2013-10-07 11.29.15 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


2013-10-07 11.30.42 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We were starting to get hungry so we decided to head over to WS to start checking out some of the booths. I'm just going to say it now, I was a terrible DISer and didn't take ANY food pictures

We started out by going to the right! Mom & Dad decided to try one of the beer flights at the Craft Beers stand. While they grabbed a table, I went ahead and got 2 of the pork sliders at Hawaii and the Fried Shrimp & Fried Pineapple Fritters at Refreshment Port. I brought everything back so we could share. WOW I loved the pork sliders...I'm still dreaming about them! The fried shrimp was also delicious, very fresh and they gave you a TON of food. The pineapple fritters were a nice way to end our first of many snacks of the day! Once we finished I figured it would be a good time to meet Duffy since the line didn't seem to long. Well we waited and the skies got darker...and darker...


410 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We were I think 2 families back when the skies started to open up. They brought Duffy inside for his break, but said he wouldn't be back until the rain died down. We ran over to the shop across from his meet and waited in there for a little while. The rain was not letting up at all and I really didn't want it to stop us from doing anything. Of course we packed some cheap ponchos but did we remember to bring them with us that day? NO! So we bit the bullet and bought 3 lovely Disney ponchos We put them on and decided to trek over to the Land. I also thought today would be a good day to wear flip flops. I bought a pair of Nikes that seemed really comfortable for Disney walking. BAD.IDEA. I basically had to walk like a Grandma the entire way and to prevent them from falling off I started walking really funny. This ended up causing some SERIOUS foot pain that took a few days to recover from :-/ We made it to Mousegears, where I decided we should head into so I could rest my feet for a second and just get out of the rain. We walked in, soaking wet in our ponchos, when a woman asked us "Oh, is it still raining?". Um lady what do YOU think!? We were not amused We looked around for a little before deciding to trek back out there. We stopped in Club Cool to try some sodas from around the world! I didn't warn my parents about Beverly and while I was distracted by something Mom went right ahead and poured herself some and tried it before I even got to take a picture of it! Obviously she did not like it After quenching our thirst we finally made it to the Land. We still had some time before our Soarin FP so we went on Living With The Land, which is a totally underrated ride! It was nice to sit down and just enjoy the relaxing ride After that it was time to use our Soarin FPs!! I have to say, the 2nd ride was even better than the first! For some reason during our first ride I didn't get all the smells (which is one of my favorite parts) and this time I totally did!

When we got off Soarin the rain had stopped (Yippie!!) and we headed over to Innoventions to check out the Visa M&G. There were a few families ahead of us but it didn't take too long to get in. Who did we get to meet? Minnie & Pluto!!

Sounds like a really nice morning at Epcot minus the rain. I'm so jealous that you got to meet Pluto twice! I really need to get a photo with him at his new Epcot spot because I love the mural in the background.

All your talk about the Food & Wine festival is making my mouth water! I want a plate of the Beef Short Ribs from France right now!

I've done the Visa meet twice now, first time we just got Mickey and this last trip it was Goofy and Mickey.

Aw that sucks about the rain! I know exactly what you mean about the rain causing you to walk funning in your flip flops and that causing you pain in the future! That has happened to me many times before. I hope it didn't affect the rest of your trip too much. I'm loving your meet and greet photos!

Ahh Soarin'. My father STILL talks about this and he's only ridden it once... 4 years ago.

I absolutely LOVE that your folks wanted to meet Chip and Dale and sent YOU to get FP's. Usually it's the other way around. So cool!

Yes I totally sympathize with your flip flop dilemma. Not easy to walk in when it's raining.

I often wonder how many people have ridden Soarin' without even knowing about the smells. Back in the day it was guaranteed, but now it's pretty hit and miss.

What a great start to your Epcot adventure!

I was a big fan of the slider too and the fritters! I wish now that I had tried the shrimp!

Drat now I am hungry.
