Rob, you in front of the closed Small World brings a tear to my eye

I bet you were like "best trip to the Magic Kingdom, ever!"

Oh, btw, I was thinking about our last trip and came up with a really easy way for you to do "CM's around the world" next time. We took passports for our girls and stopped at all of the Kidcot stations, which were staffed by the real deal CM's from other countries. Easy peazy, dude.

(Plus, they were all pretty easy on the eyes)

Looking forward to the next update!

Those signs were perfect!

I have to say that I don't think it is a coincidence that your birthday and Walt's birthday are so close.

That is so crazy that no one knew it was Walt's birthday....do they even know who he is? Good grief people that is a bit sad.

Splash Mountain first thing in the morning in December, very brave of you! I rode only one time this December and got soaked.....the water seemed more abundant then in past trips did you notice that or was it just me? BTW ummm the country bear characters are creepy and I will probably have nightmares now because of your post. LOL!

I saw your planned shirt for the day and the first thing I thought was "oh no he did not know about the rehab!" Poor Rob. This is one of my DD favorite rides and I freaked a little when I saw it was going to be down in December,until I noticed that it would be open on our last day. That stinks though...sorry that you missed that boo...hiss!

UUURRGHH STTTAAAAHHHPPP with that title #uglycry

Man I really need to start taking more pictures from the monorail! Yours are great!! Uhm…that girl in the front of space looks like she’s legit dying, like the ride hasn’t even started yet….WHOOPS

Also, like *** cast members, how do so many of them not know when it’s Walt’s birthday? Well, I guess that kidna makes sense, Steven said that yesterday no one had wished Aurora a “happy birthday” and she was super excited once he did…guess people aren’t up to par with their Disney knowledge?

Aahaha oh you just love big al, hey? That frontierland hoedown is just the weirdest thing, a friend that’s in it said I’m not missing much by having never seen it, but like, what even is it?! Lol

Wait, what the heck Peter, you’re not supposed to like Wendy all that much…. Also that was the best friend of peter that steven & I met all that week, and we met like, 6….


….my only reaction to that closing picture….

How can anyone be in Disney or even work for Disney and not know that that day was his birthday! This is why I should work in Disneyworld….sigh…if only

Also That's so cool to see the Country Bears all walking about! I don't think I've ever seen that happen.

Hahahahaha at the Small world refurb being closed…another huge disappointment on this birthday trip…man you can't catch a break..

Rob, the CMs must not be taught the important stuff like Walt's birthday in their Traditions class. Sadness. At least you were there to educate them.

Your psychic abilities are truly remarkable. Glad that you were able to send a shout out for Walt's birthday. Well done!

Awww Peter on his knee by Wendy. Wendy looks like she's thinking... I don't see a ring there buddy!

You are not having luck my friend. First Wishes and now IaSW. So sorry for another disappointment. I'm sure your luck has to turn around.

Haha I love your Small World shirt, too funny!

Getting a front row spot is a sign its going to be an amazing day!

You are totally right, the Mickey wreath at the Comptemporary is the best Christmas decoration ever, so big!

I love the ride photos with the signs, I think they are great! And what a wonderful tribute to the man that started it all! I can't believe the CMs didn't know what day it was, you'd think that would be in their training or something.

Splash Mountain definitely deserves the nickname happiest cruise that ever sailed, such a fabulous ride. Its so well done and I love how long it is. I'm very sad I only got to ride it once last trip : (

Fan-girling over Big Al to funny!

Haha I definitely wasn't that bummed when I saw Small World was closed that week

Ah, yes. I'm sure you faced complete and total devastation over IASW being closed. I know I would ... not... have shed a tear.

That's really sad that people working there didn't know it was Walt's birthday. You'd think that would be plaster all over the utilidoors or something. Balloons..Anything????

I've been during Walt's birthday and there's always been a sense of it being extra special (at least to me, but I'm sentimental).

Awesome you saw the B'rer's .... I have yet to ever see them
