    Thank you! It's one of my favorite attractions :-)

    Hi there!
    Awwww thanks so much! I'm glad you are enjoying it!
    I'm so happy you read my last one too. That must've taken a while!
    Well... ya know. It's the never ending trip of eye rolling and complaining, so there can't be any promises!​

    Hellloooooo there!
    Long time, no update!
    Sorry about that! I mean, I have had this one written for like a week but I got my wisdom teeth out and have been resting on the couch since Friday. So, anyways, hope you enjoy it! :-)

    Tattoos, a Mickey bar, and CUPCAKES...well and a fruit tart because SOME IDIOT got one
    (I don't know what my deal is with long titles lately)

    I wanted to get a Disney tattoo. I already knew which one I was gonna get.

    The Troy Bolton one.

    And if you don’t know who Troy Bolton is, SHAME ON YOU.

    Mum actually has a huge crush on him.

    I’m not joking about that.

    She will even admit it.

    I mean, she should know who Troy Bolton is…

    And it is sad I still remember his name, along with everyone else on those stupid movies.

    And I still might know some of the songs…

    And I might have been watching the movie when it was on like two weeks ago.

    I said MIGHT HAVE.

    ANYWAYS………………………

    Here I was getting my tattoo. It REALLY hurt.
    [​IMG]

    Then Troy was debating about getting one. He thought it “would stay like daddy’s.” No, that’s a little different. I think he ended up getting one because I did.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ta da!
    [​IMG]

    So cute!
    [​IMG]

    Modeling our tattoos.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I got a Jack Sandy Claus one. I loved it!

    Admiring his.
    [​IMG]

    All set to go!
    [​IMG]
    Seriously, when he wears those sunglasses, he is soooooo adaorable.

    Then it was time to use our FPs for Rockin’ Roller Coaster. My favorite ♥

    We left Troy with Mimi. They went to go see Indiana Jones while we headed BACK to Sunset.

    We only waited like 10 minutes to get on, and once we got into the alley, we told Jackie to look away. I knew she would want to go out the chicken exit once she saw a limo take off.

    A CM told us to take front row once we got to the front and I was like “YESSSSSSSSSSS!”

    But Mum was “too scared” so we let some guys sit there instead, while we had to sit in second.

    Ridiculous.

    AND I WAS ALL EXCITED.

    Pretty soon, Steven Tyler was screaming in our ears and we were heading to an Aerosmith concert.

    Best. Ride. EVER.

    Once we got off, Jackie was like “I WANT TO GO AGAIN!”

    WHAT?

    You were scared of EVEREST and now you want to go on RRC AGAIN because you LOVED it so much?

    I will never understand.

    I mean, OF COURSE you want to go on again because it is so awesome, but you were “thinking about” BIG THUNDER MOUNTAIN.

    Ok then…

    This was our ride picture. Those stupid pink lights.
    [​IMG]

    Seth and Jackie bought their ride picture as a digital download. The CM was telling them there is this new thing where you can pay this certain price and buy as many ride pictures as you want. And Jackie was like “I wish we knew about this sooner! Now it would be a waste because it’s our last day!” That’s really too bad…

    It is part of Photopass+ or something, because everything is extra magical and has a “+” after every single word.

    As we were walking BACK down Sunset, I stopped at the DVC kiosk to trade a pin. We ended up talking to the CM that worked there about DVC, where our home resort was, etc. Then these two women come up and ask US “oh, what is this?” We just stood there and we were like “ummm… we don’t work here!" Then we got out of the way and the CM started explain what the awesomeness that DVC is. The fact that people think we were at Disney is pretty awesome. I mean, people think that I work at a grocery store that is near us and they ask me questions.

    So then we headed over to Indiana Jones to wait for Mimi and Troy.

    AND THERE WAS AN ICE CREAM STAND.

    MICKEY BAR MICKEY BAR MICKEY BAR. NOMS NOMS NOMS.

    DUH.

    So craving one of these puppies right now.
    [​IMG]

    Mum got a Mickey ice cream sandwich. EXTRA NOMS.
    [​IMG]

    We ate our ice cream and sat on a bench. And waited.

    I ate my Mickey bar in like two seconds cause I’m a little piggy.

    Mimi and Troy came out soon and Troy LOVED the show. He kept telling us all about it!

    Then I wanted a cupcake.

    Yes, I KNOW I just ate a Mickey bar, but I wasn’t going to leave without a RED VELVET CUPCAKE AKA THE BEST THING EVER CREATED.

    So we went over to Starring Rolls.

    [​IMG]

    It was pretty crowded in there, but it always is. PEOPLE WANT YUMMY BAKED GOODS. I don’t blame them one bit.

    We got our cupcakes and then checked out. The CM who was checking us out was SO slow and was about 100 years old.

    I guess when you retire and move to Florida, you work at Disney and gain 500 pounds because you work in a bake shop. That will be me. Except I’ll be working for Disney a lot sooner than that. And I will get paid more since Obama just raised the minimum wage BY A WHOLE DOLLAR. Yayyyy!

    MY RED VELVET CUPCAKE.
    [​IMG]

    Mum got the butterfinger cupcake.
    [​IMG]

    And this is someone’s fruit tart. I think it was Seth’s.
    [​IMG]
    BUT WHHYYYYY WOULD YOU GET FRUIT WHEN THERE ARE RED VELVET CUPCAKES?!?!!?!?!?!!?!?

    WHACKOOOOO.

    Troy got one of those kid pack things, which I think is a pretty good deal! I mean, it is like $5.50 and you get a cookie, goldfish, yogurt, a cheese stick, carrots, and a milk, and I am probably missing something. And it comes it the most adorable box EVER CREATED.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    PLEASE TELL ME THAT IS NOT THE MOST ADORABLE THING YOU HAVE EVER SEEN?!

    Dying over Minnie in the doombuggy.

    A lot.

    At this point, we were ready to head out of the park.

    I got my snow globe at the package pick-up since it is frag-il-E. I also pin traded there since they have a mini pin board. They usually have a lot of good pins too! Also, they never have it out. It is off to the side and you can’t really see it that well. So just ask for it if you are up there!

    We headed to the bus stop and got on a bus to the TTC, since we were going to take a monorail from there to my second home. ♥

    I sat with Troy and the whole ride we took crazy pictures. That kid is so awesome.
    [​IMG]

    Cutie ♥
    [​IMG]

    He wanted me to take a picture of this ad. “IT IS SANTA!”
    [​IMG]

    I bet y’all really wanted to see those ridiculous pictures of us.

    I know what you are thinking.

    “I CANNOT GET OVER HOW AWESOME THEY ARE.”

    I know, I know.

    Our—well MY—awesomeness is hard to handle.

    Anywayyyyssss, we got to the TTC and took a monorail over to MK.

    An amazing night was in our futures. ​

    yes, you really should have gotten a tattoo of Troy. I forgot his last name was Bolton. Although, I did not have a crush on him back then, nor now. Now, he is just hot. (and also now over 18) lol
    Zac Efron and cupcakes in the same post? wow!!!

    Yep, it did.... :) I may or may not have been neglecting things that I should have been doing while reading...... :lmao:

    Oh, those cupcakes look AMAZING!!!!!!!!! I am sooo hungry now! And that treat box is adorable.

    I rode RnRC in the front row last time we were in HS, and it was the best!! It made my eyes water, and now I can't ride in any other row without feeling like I am missing something. :)

    Thanks! I loved mine. And Troy’s was adorable!
    Isn’t it?! I really wanted to take it.

    That would be an AWESOME tattoo!

    YES YOU DO HAVE A CRUSH ON HIM NOW.
    Well this comment was embarrassing…

    Hahaha well my TRs are VERY important!
    DON’T THEY?!?!?! SOOOO GOOD.
    I REALLY want to ride in the front. But SOMEONE doesn’t. Not naming any names…​

    That one time that we ate at Blank Blank Blank

    Yes, there is a restaurant at Disney called Blank Blank Blank.

    I JUST DON’T WANT TO RUIN THE SURPRISE, OKKKKK?!

    I was thinking about calling the place by its real name in the title, but I wanted it to be suspenseful.

    You’re welcome.

    Sooooo, there we were, having a lovely ride on the highway in the sky over to my second house.

    Once we got there, we got off the monorail, and decided we wanted to try to get on Splash again. Someone had to stay with Troy so Mum watched him because she didn’t want to go on.

    We dragged Mimi with us.

    She was mad.

    This was only the start of that…

    Mum found a spot on Main Street to watch the parade. And then Troy fell asleep. Awesome…

    We headed to Frontierland and there was only a 10 minute wait for Splash. Good, because I didn’t want to wait. I am so ridiculous.

    I sat in the front row with Mimi. Seth and Jackie sat behind us.

    And we got SOAKED.

    Yes, yes, yes, SPLASH WAS WORKING. No backstage this time around!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    THIS PICTURE OF MY GRANDMOTHER. LAUGHING SO HARD. (and don’t I look lovely?!)
    [​IMG]
    Had to post that, oh my god.

    So yeah, we had a wonderful ride down the Briar Patch.

    Next we headed over to Big Thunder Mountain. It said there was a 30 minute wait but we walked right on!

    I sat with Mimi once again.

    She screamed.

    She was mad we dragged her on.

    At least it was kind of like a little blow dry!

    Yeah, not so much.

    Mimi wanted to fix her hair because it was a disaster. SO WAS MINE AND IT WASN’T LIKE I CARED. I mean, maybe I would have cared once I found out where we were going to dinner in less than five minutes…

    Jackie’s phone started going off.

    It was Mum.

    I was basically screaming.

    Jackie was like “OH MY GOD WHAT HAPPENED WHAT IS WRONG?!”

    I told her nothing happened and she was SO mad at me because I freaked her out. She thought something happened to Troy.

    Mimi was still in the bathroom.

    We needed to leave Frontierland RIGHT THAT MINUTE.

    I was FREAKING out.

    It seemed like I could barely breathe at that point.

    Mimi finally got out of the bathroom and I told her we needed to go NOW.

    Except Seth and Jackie weren’t coming with us.

    As a birthday gift for Seth, we gave him a Disney gift card and we made an ADR at Kouzzina for them this night, so they could just have dinner together.

    So I told them they needed to get going to make it for their ADR. I gave them directions to how to get out of the park (ridiculous, I know) and how to get to the Boardwalk.

    We said bye and I grabbed onto Mimi’s hand and basically pulled her to our destination.

    I was freaking out because we needed to get to Mum and Troy THAT MINUTE. I was afraid we weren’t going to make it.

    Seriously, that woman walks SOOOOOOO slow. I lost her at some points. I am a VERY fast walker and I was getting annoyed and I told her we needed to go faster and I got yelled at.

    “WELL I CAN’T WALK ANY FASTER!!!!!”

    Well then…

    We made it to our destination within SECONDS. Our buzzer was going off when we got there.

    We grabbed Troy out of his stroller. He was still sleeping. Awesome…

    We brought our buzzer up to the front and waited all about a minute before someone was calling our last name.

    Guys.

    Do not freak out.

    WE GOT INTO BE OUR GUEST AAAAHHHHH

    [​IMG]

    I couldn’t believe it.

    WE GOT INTO BE OUR GUEST FOR DINNER.

    I still can’t get over it.

    Mum went up to the podium at 3:45 as a WALK UP GUYS.

    And we got in.

    We weren’t able to get an ADR AT ALL. We were at Disney when they were released and I heard it was just nuts on the phone lines. So we waited. And nothing.

    So if any of you can’t get an ADR for BOG, GO AS A WALK UP RIGHT WHEN IT OPENS FOR DINNER.

    You will end up having an early dinner, BUT WHO REALLY CARES. YOU ARE EATING AT BE OUR GUEST.

    So yeah.

    I was basically crying.

    We were the first ones in the ballroom.

    THE FIRST ONES.

    OF THE NIGHT.

    Yes, we got seated IN THE BALLROOM.

    I was in shock.

    My mouth was wide open going in there.

    And I think that is what the Imagineers wanted. It looks EXACTLY like the movie. I couldn’t think of one more thing to make this restaurant any more amazing. When you first step foot in there, it is like you are in the movie. In a small village in France. I felt like I was. I couldn’t get over where I was. I was in Be Our Guest. After MONTHS of watching videos online of it that the Parks Blog posted, I was here. It felt like a dream.

    We were seated and I was DYING. A LOT. Like, you guys don’t understand.

    This is my view right now. I am blown away.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Oh yeah. IT SNOWS “OUTSIDE.”
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I mean, COME ON. JUST STOP. LIKE. AHHHHH. I still can’t get over how beautiful this restaurant is. We are eating at Be Our Guest in August (WE GOT AN ADR!!!... which was not hard to get AT ALL) and I don’t think I will live. I see pictures of the restaurant ALL THE TIME and I get goose bumps because it is spectacular.

    HOW PERFECT ARE THE NAPKINS.
    [​IMG]

    AND THE MENUS.
    [​IMG]

    STILL DYING OVER HERE.

    And oh yeah. While I was dying and crying, Troy was having a total meltdown because he wanted Seth and Jackie and I think because he was tired. This was just… I don’t know. I felt bad and I was trying to enjoy the experience at the same time. So adding a crying kid was not cool, but what are you gonna do about it?! I probably sound like a bad cousin, but when you put me in a restaurant LIKE THIS, I’m sorry. And thankfully, he didn’t cry the whole meal. Mum brought him to the bathroom and calmed him down. She then let him play some Angry Birds, which helped A LOT. And then something else, but we will get to that in a moment.

    And how could I forget?

    MY GRANDMOTHER ORDERED WINE.

    AND WE WERE IN THE MAGIC KINGDOM.

    I was like “you really aren’t going to drink that. OH YES YOU ARE OH MY GOD WHYYYYY.”

    As I said in my post about the 50s Prime Time Café, DISNEY ISN’T FOLLOWING WALT’S LEGACY. Which then led to a rude comment from Jackie, but we aren’t going there now.

    I mean, it’s not like they are selling it at stands in the park, BUT STILL. You are having alcohol. IN THE MAGIC KINGDOM.

    I couldn’t believe my grandmother was really drinking.

    Before I start ranting more, let’s move on, shall we?

    So…. Our waiter, Scooter, brought over some bread for us, which I guess I didn’t take a picture of…??? Probably because Troy stole the whole basket thingy before I could. But it is some of my food pics, so that makes up for it, I guess?

    To start off, I ordered the French Onion Soup and it was EXCELLENT. Oh my god, I went to heaven. I haven’t had the one at Le Chefs, but I heard this is better.
    [​IMG]

    I am in shock right now. WE ARE IN THE BALLROOM AND I AM EATING FRENCH ONION SOUP.

    For our entrees, Mum and I got the grilled strip steak, which came with fries.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It was VERY good. The steak was cooked perfectly and the fries were great. They had some kind of seasoning on them if I remember correctly that was awesome.

    Mimi got the scallops, which came in a puff pastry.
    [​IMG]

    She said it was very good!

    Troy just got pasta or something and he ate ALL OF IT, which is a SHOCKER when it comes to him. He never finishes a meal. Disney magic, my peeps.

    IT IS JUST SO AMAZING HERE.

    Then it was time for dessert!

    They bring around a case thingy FILLED with desserts. HEAVEN.

    I asked Scooter if there was any way I could try the grey stuff. He said “are you celebrating a birthday or something?”

    Ummm…SURE I AM!

    I said no, but he said he would talk to Mrs. Potts in the kitchen.

    So, yeah. The grey stuff is only for birthdays or celebrations, but it was very nice of him to get me some!

    I ALSO got the chocolate cream puff WHICH WAS SO GOOD. And here is my awful picture of it.
    [​IMG]
    Mimi’s dessert is in the back. She got the lemon meringue cupcake it looks like.

    I have no clue what Mum got. I do know that Troy got the strawberry cream cheese cupcake which he LOVED.

    Then Scooter brought out a little dollop of the grey stuff for me!
    [​IMG]
    It was like a cookies and cream mousse type of thing. The spoonful I had was very good!

    "Try the grey stuff, it's delicious! Don't believe me, ask the dishes!"

    During the meal, THE BEAST comes out and pretty much waves to everyone. And oh my GOD, Troy went NUTS. He LOVED him. He was standing on his chair yelling “THE BEAST!” So cute!

    You can meet him in the room where you order for lunch during the day. It is kinda towards the front of the restaurant. So I brought Troy in there after dessert and the CM working there was like “oh have you finished your meal?” And I was like “do I say yes? Or do I say no?” So I said no and that we were just finishing up and she said to come back once we were done.

    So if you want to meet the Beast, you have to wait until after you are done with dinner. That is like “the rule” I guess.

    So I brought Troy back to our table and on the way he was said he was very scared. So I picked him up (since I am such a great cousin) and asked him why. He said “The Beast!”

    …but I thought you wanted to meet him five seconds ago?

    He still said he wanted to meet him even though he was a little scared. Ok then.

    So after we paid, we went back to the room with The Beast!

    And by the way, they take Tables in Wonderland! OH YEAH!

    We were the only ones in line so headed right up and Troy gave the Beast a GIANT hug. Well he gave his leg a hug anyway since he is like 1/20 of the size of the Beast.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It was so cool to meet the Beast, and seriously, HE IS SO TALL.

    On our way out, we stopped at the knights in armor and they were so cool. They talk to each other, snore, and they sneeze sometimes. Reason 39475894356893465 why Be Our Guest is AMAZING.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This is a good video of them.

    Awesome, RIGHT?!

    IMAGINEERING AT ITS BEST PEOPLE.

    JUST SAYIN’.

    BEAUTIFUL.

    Overview of Be Our Guest
    Atmosphere: The atmosphere is INCREDIBLE. The only problem is is that it is SO dark in there. That’s why I needed to use a flash on my pictures. I heard the West Wing is SO much worse though. Can’t imagine that! 4.5/5
    Food: The food was AWESOME. Everything was cooked right, and tasted great! 5/5
    Service: Scooter was our waiter and he was nice enough. He seemed a little snotty though. 4/5

    And before I forget, the menu at Be Our Guest changes seasonally. It just changed like a month ago. It has most of the same items on it, but they added a few new ones and took away some. I really like that!

    As you can see, our experience at Be Our Guest was INCREDIBLE. It is now one of my top favorite restaurants and we will have to go on every trip, for either lunch or dinner, or BOTH! Y’all HAVE to try it out. It is DEFINETLY a must do for moi. Disney went above and beyond with the theming, the details, and I could go on for hours. They put you right into the movie and I couldn’t ask for anything more.

    BEST MEAL EVER.

    Is this November, 25? If so, I was at MK during the day and DHS at night. I had lunch at BOG and OMG it was so amazing! I definitely agree with you about the theming and the lighting! I ate in the West Wing and it was awesome in there, but the lighting sucked. Cute tattoos!

    how great was that surprise walk up to BOG!? I think we'll enjoy it in Aug much more, as I was focused on keeping Troy happy for most of the time we were there! He really was cute with the Beast though.

    Mickey ice cream followed by a RV cupcake? Sounds like my food pyramid.

    "I guess when you retire and move to Florida, you work at Disney and gain 500 pounds because you work in a bake shop. That will be me. Except I’ll be working for Disney a lot sooner than that. And I will get paid more since Obama just raised the minimum wage BY A WHOLE DOLLAR. Yayyyy!"

    Dying. :rotfl2::rotfl2::rotfl2::rotfl2:

    BAHA the fruit. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE fruit but

    cupcake >> fruit

    every time.

    unless it's a gross cupcake...


    NO THE KID DISNEY CHARACTERS I CAN'T HANDLE THE CUTE

    Yeah this was the 25th!
    ISN’T IT INCREDIBLE?!
    I can’t even IMAGINE the lighting in the West Wing. I thought the ballroom was bad!
    Thanks! :-)

    THANK YOU MOTHER FOR THE 500TH TIME! SO AWESOME!
    Yeah, our meal, excuse me, our VACATION will be much better!

    I was DYING when I saw them.

    Seriously twin, it isn’t fancy AT ALL. You could just go in there with your park clothes and be soaking wet (like I was) and it wouldn’t matter. We don’t like to go to fancy places, ESPECIALLY at Disney. I am not a fan of getting dressed up. Be Our Guest really is not like that actually! And you could really find something to eat that isn’t fancy. And plus they change the menu up every season, like I said. So there is going to be something totally different and new when you go.

    AND YES THAT SOUP YUMMMMMMY.​

    Drama in Frontierland. WHAT ELSE IS NEW?!

    After the most amazing meal ever, we headed towards Main Street.

    BYE NEW FANTASYLAND!!!

    Main Street was a war zone. People were going every which way. Strollers crashing into people. Trying not to lose people in your party. It was seriously a nightmare. It was the nightmare before MVMCP. I am coming out with that movie this Christmas. Be sure to look out for it. It stars yours truly and 5000 people on Main Street. It is going to win an Oscar. I just know it!

    We headed towards Guest Relations to see where we could pick up our wristbands for MVMCP!!! I was SO excited!!

    A CM told us you could get them by Stitch’s Great Escape, near Pirates, or at the turnstiles.

    Well we weren’t heading back into the war zone, so turnstiles it was!

    We “exited” the park and CMs gave us our bracelets and a map. Time to PARTAY!

    We went back into MK and TONS of people were getting spots for the first parade. So we ended up getting a spot right at the end of Main Street facing the castle.

    Pictures from the train station first!

    And as you can see, the Christmas tree wasn’t even up yet!

    MVMCP time!

    Mimi and Mum headed to the bathroom first so I waited with Troy and we watched the castle lighting. It was so magical.

    We have the best spot for the parade. I'm just sayin'. #mvmcp

    We spread out a bunch of sweatshirts and jackets for our spots.

    And then Troy wanted to go on Buzz. RIGHT THIS SECOND WHEN MAIN STREET IS A TOTAL MESS?! Yayy… -_-

    So Mimi, Troy, and I headed to Tomorrowland and I lost them in the crowd about five times.

    The Nightmare before MVMCP is going to be award winning, as you can see.

    We got to Buzz and the wait time was 30 minutes. Umm… I really didn’t want to wait but Troy was DYING to go on, so I stood there. For like five minutes and then Mum texted us and said how people were walking all over our stuff, huffing and puffing because “we take too much room”, and anything else you can think of Stupid Guests do. She said once we were done, to head over quickly to save more room.

    I NEEDED a good spot so I was like “See ya!” and left them.

    Yes, I know I am very nice.

    That is what makes me so special.

    I made my way back down Main Street aka the war zone. Seriously, it was AWFUL. That is why my movie will make millions.

    I got to our spot and saved some more room.

    We had a nice view of the Emporium, which was decorated very nicely with Christmas lights and garland.

    While sitting there, we sang along with the Christmas songs they were piping in on Main Street. Pretty soon we had a crowd forming around us because we were THAT good.

    And then all of a sudden, it started snowing.

    IT IS SNOWING ON MAIN STREET. I AM DYING

    I AM CRYING OH MY GOD.


    It all felt so magical. We were on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom which was decorated for Christmas, Christmas music was playing, we had a view of the half-lit castle…and then you add the snow on to all of that and you are basically dead by that point.

    I WANT A BALLOOON GIMMEE.

    Seth and Jackie came back while we were sitting there. They said dinner was really good! I have no food porn for you guys or anything because they are poops. SORRYYY.

    And then we got a call from Mimi saying they were lost on Main Street. Of course! So Seth and Jackie went to look for them.

    Once they got back, I noticed Troy was crying because he lost his monkey stuffed animal on Buzz. Well, he didn’t really lose it.

    It kinda got sucked up under the tracks…

    So he dropped it when they were loading and Mimi didn’t know what to do so they just went on with him screaming and crying. Yeah…

    Mimi asked when they got off to look for it, but they couldn’t do anything about it, so BYE BYE MONEY!!!

    Troy was a tad upset…

    But when they got back, Seth and Jackie said TO MAKE TROY FEEL BETTER, they were going on BTMR.

    And then wanted me to come with them because they didn’t know how to get there.

    I was like “ummm…FINE.”

    First of all, I REALLY didn’t want to go, second of all, I was worried about missing the parade, and third of all, I KNEW TROY WASN’T GETTING ON. He is an inch too short, and I KNEW that wasn’t going to fly. But, maybe he would be tall enough. I didn’t know. I didn’t have a tape measure with me to measure him, cause I never do! WHY WOULD I?!

    I wasn’t so sure about how this would go.

    So the four of us dodged our way through the crowds.

    And then we made it to BTMR.

    FOUR CMS WERE STANDING OUTSIDE THE STAND BY LINE.

    FOUR.

    THEY SAW TROY and let us right into the queue. Didn’t bother to measure him or anything. Interesting…

    We got right up to the loading zone and a CM pulled us aside, asking to measure Troy. Awesome.

    She measured him and he was about 1.5 inches too short. Didn’t see that coming.

    And then Seth flipped out.

    He said “HE WENT ON EARLIER TODAY AND THEY LET HIM ON!”

    Ummmmm…NOT HE DID NOT YOU IDIOT.

    Totally lying to the CM who was telling him VERY nicely that Troy couldn’t go on.

    And I DO NOT think it is right to flip out and LIE to a CM. Troy NEVER went on earlier.

    It is a CM’s job to make sure everyone is tall enough. If Troy went on, something could happen! It wouldn’t be safe. She was just doing her job!

    So when the next train came, the four of us walked right over and exited.

    Now, I think the FOUR CMs at the front should have measured Troy. They saw him walk right up and I would THINK they would have known if someone was too short or not.

    Then Seth and Jackie said they wanted to try to get him on Splash.

    I was in shock.

    WHY THE CRAP WOULD YOU LOSERS DO THAT?!?!?!

    It is the EXACT same height requirement as BTMR, so OF COURSE they weren’t going to let him on!!!!

    I was like “I’m out of here.” And walked back to Main Street. I was NOT missing the parade ESPECIALLY after waiting so long.

    I was just going to let them find their way back. If they wanted to see the parade, fine. If they missed it, I could have cared less.

    I got back to our spot and three people came walking up 10 minutes later.

    “They wouldn’t let him on!”

    WELL DUH.

    I just rolled my eyes and tried to enjoy where I was. My home. I wasn’t going to let some idiots ruin the party!

    You are so nice. I would have never walked over there with them. I would have said, "here's a map, see ya later."

    I can't wait to see your parade pics !!!
