Pop is such a great resort! It's been awhile since I've stayed there, but I love it there all the same.

Wow - if I had only stayed a few more days I would have gotten to see the MK Christmas decorations. Bummer.

Sorry your dinner wasn't quite as magical this time. Was your dessert gluten free? Denny and I had that salad trio and it was pretty yummy!

That's too bad.

Sorry BOG was disappointing. We had dinner there over Christmas (somehow snagged an ADR the week before) and enjoyed it, but have definitely had better food elsewhere. Our server was outstanding, though, and you could tell she loved her restaurant. I think I'll stick with the counter service there, and choose other options for table service.
I agree! It is definitely one of our favorite resorts!

I think the counter service is horrible there! We went in May and the table service food was much better!

It is our second home!

I know! That's one of the reasons we went at that time!

It was! It was a lemon cream puff. It was good!

It wasn't my actual birthday so I was okay with it!

Aw, that's nice. At least you got to celebrate a little bit!



That's too bad.



Can't wait! And thanks for all the pictures and the update!
I'm a little kid I still love a candle in my cake Who doesn't want to make a wish!

It was sad but oh well sometimes you have to remember you are at a restaurant and even Disney has less than magical experiences.

Thank you for reading!

Hey Caitlin! Finally caught up on trip reports on the DIS and have time to sit down and comment!

We Pop, too! It's our favorite value and the 50's section is awesome!

Be Our Guest seems like the perfect birthday dinner. I'm sorry it wasn't as magical as the first time yall went, but glad it was still fun I need to try a snag an ADR there four September trip!

Glad you found some free time!

Agreed!

It's a good place to go and check out but for some reason just didn't seem as magical as it had been.

I just wanted to say great trip report. I enjoy reading trip reports where people seem to really enjoy all Disney has to offer and you seem to truly enjoy your time there.

On another note I found it interesting that there were several gluten free choices available, even beer.

I am having the blood test done to see if I suffer from gluten sensitivity so it is nice to see that there are food and beverage choices available. Of course I will miss my Maudite's, La fin du mondes and black and tans when it comes to beers but at least I will have some options.

One question though if I may, do you have to totally eliminate gluten containing foods or can some be tolerated at times?

Loved seeing the Christmas decorations - some day I hope to see them.
Sorry your experience at Be Our Guest wasn't as special. I really loved it there. Just wish they would have brought us the grey stuff. We were too full to order dessert for our anniversary so they didn't do anything extra for us.

■Orange Dole® Whip with Crème de Cacao White

It wasn't as good as the drunken dole whip they had for the Flower and Garden Festival

I love your photos....you have an eye for it!

I'm glad you're enjoying the report! We do love Disney!

I was a porter girl and it was big change for me! You get used to it though!

I have to completely eliminate it from my diet. If I eat it my throat starts closing up or I get super sleepy very quickly depending on the amount in it.

Everyone needs to see them at least once!

Aw that's too bad! The grey stuff was cool to see but contains gluten so I can't eat it.

It's pineapple dole whip with rum. I'm hoping they have it again too!

Thank you!

After our not as magical dinner at Be Our Guest we decided we had time to hit up a couple more rides before heading over to Epcot for Illuminations.

Our first stop was here



Everything just looks better at night in Disney!




This has quickly become one of our must dos so we have to ride this whenever we are in MK!





Grandma even joined us!




My grandma is fully aware she is the sea witch. For those of you not aware of the history behind this I would play Little Mermaid in my grandma's pool and she would be the sea witch. Ever since then it has been an on going joke in the family.



The only problem is how much I'm going to miss her..




If they actually had him say that in the ride my mom would need a box of kleenex next to her!



We said goodbye to Ariel and the Beast




We decided we also needed to say good night to Rapunzel too...(a much better way of putting bathroom break)









We headed out to say goodbye to Cinderellla and were treated to the castle lighting ceremony!







Pictures do not do it justice



It honestly should be the 8th wonder of the world



I mean look at this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





Once we could pick our jaws off the ground we headed through the gift shops to the monorail





Everything is just so festive!



Once we got to Epcot we headed to the concert area

There were literally a ton of people lined up for Hanson! I have no idea why! People had on concert t shirts and as soon as they came on stage it was fan girl central!



I did the best I could with photos considering I had a Jammin Jamican in one hand a bunch of girls jumping up and down










After that was over... We only knew one song and while MMMBop was good it was really weird watching all of these girls freak out in the rain! Once it was over we hurried to our special seating for Illuminations and it did not disappoint! I had never had the chance to photograph this with a good camera before so be prepared for picture overload!









You can actually make out what's on the Earth!


























I am very proud of how these turned out! I could have posted more but I decided on only the cream of the crop!





Love the colors in this one!










You can sort of see the lasers
