    So in the process of walking down Main St. we decided that the first ride of the trip needed to be on Big Thunder Mt. I couldn’t be happier, as this was the same ride we had ridden first on my first trip ( I am a sucker for traditions.) :lmao:
    As we cross the bridge I see another photopass person!

    A cute first visit photo! John’s eyes are open in this photo!

    And a close up!

    Look another family! (I have no idea why their photo is on my photopass!:confused3 However I feel it is important that I share it with you.

    [​IMG]

    Walking through we are sad to see this sign. BOOOOOOOOO :sad2: ( and yes I did know going into the trip that it would be closed)

    We walked up to BTM, and pretty much were able to walk on!:yay: The only thing that I don’t like about walk on rides is walking through all the line dividers. When you walk through those things too quickly you really get dizzy! As always it was super fun, and Josh loved all the themed stuff. I was super nervous he wouldn’t “get” Disney, but when we got off he told me how much he loved the ride, and I knew we were going to have fun! As we walked off we made sure to stop and peek at the hidden Tinker Bell!

    After that there was some talk of going to Tom Sawyer’s island, but we decided it was too cold! :eek: At this point in the trip is was FREEZING. There were people walking around with full on coats, and scarves!

    We scooted over to try and catch the Haunted Mansion, however, it was closed! It was only down for a short time, and they told us to come back later.
    So off to Fantasy Land we go!!!! On the way we stop into the little kitchen store, and begin to pick out what we to get for our kitchen back home! We decided we were going to go with the body parts theme, as it was more classic Disney than the blue one.

    OK now back to Fantasy Land!
    So we headed off to Small world!
    [​IMG]

    We were lucky enough to be at the front of the line at 11:00! So we got to see the fun clock in action!
    [​IMG]

    Both Joshua and I feel the same way about this ride, we enjoy it, but it isn’t the end of the world if we don’t ever see it again. I love the start of the ride, but by the third room, I am ready for it to be over. I think more people would enjoy the ride if they were to cut it shorter!

    Coming up : More Fantasy Land!

    i love the random stranger pic, i wonder if they are disers, wouldnt that be funny if they saw themselves on here. i cant believe how cold it looks with the coats. we were there in nov 08 and i only needed a sweatshirt but one week later a friend went and needed mittens. i guess you never now. it is probably better that splash was closed as you would have frozen if you were wet.

    Loving your TR/Photos...

    I agree with IASW. I feel like it's the perfect ride for the mid/end of a long day in the summer. (A cool, long, sitting ride.) Having said that, I love going on it for the sake of traditions!

    Keep the updates coming! popcorn::

    Great update! Too funny about the strangers on your photopass! They're probably looking for that picture right now! Where is there a kitchen store? I'll have to check that out the next time I go down.

    Small World is my favorite! I'm a sucker for traditions too!;)

    I just had a vision of after dark, IASW music changing to really creepy "children of the corn" type music and the lights turned to evil colors. It would be a super freaky/creepy ride. I would go on it a lot!

    It did warm up later, thank goodness! The random picture was a nice bonus when I opened the photopass cd!


    I am glad you are enjoying! I am a sucker for traditions

    The kitchen store is right as the arch that goes for the haunted manison area into fantasy land

    Isn't Stitch kinda like that?

    YAY!!! You liked my update!!

    So onward we move!:laughing:

    Up next we have Philhar Magic, which is one of my all time favorites!
    [​IMG]
    Josh is a big cartoon fan, and he loves fantasia so this was a big hit with him. I really love Ariel, so this is super fun to be as well! I didn’t warn Josh about the water, or the scent, so he was very surprised!
    We grabbed a fastpass to come back for Peter Pan. When I had gone to Disney World before Peter Pan was closed, so this was going to be my first ride as well!
    [​IMG]
    While waiting for our fastpasses to come due we walked over to Snow White. Here is a picture of us kissing, get used to it, we did it a lot.
    [​IMG]
    Please notice the woman who is taking a nap in the background. I have no idea how she was sleeping! Who can sleep while waiting to see Snow White!!!! :confused:

    Walking away we almost got run over by a band. This became a “thing” on this trip. Josh and I ran into a marching band several times a day, with no intention of doing so…..
    [​IMG]

    So we headed to Pinocchio’s to find some lunch. I am sad to say, this is one of the times I failed to capture food porn. I am sorry I know. After much discussion we have decided that I had pizza, and everyone else had either burgers or chicken fingers. We came to this conclusion because we had a discussion at the end of the meal about why there were so many dipping sauces on the table.
    Several things made this lunch eventful. The first being the group of teens next to us who were screaming in another language. I was sitting on the bench side, next to Andrea, and they were cramming more and more people on to this bench, to the point where a girl was sitting on my bag, which was ½ on my lap. I finally said something, and when she looked at me like I had 5 heads I just pulled my bag out, causing her to turn to her friend and start, what I can only assume, is complaining about how rude I was. So of course I look at my sister and say something to the effect of, if you are going to say something mean, at least say it in a way I can understand! This lead to a dirty look………This was a trip of almost fights for me for some reason. I just seem to attract trouble……:rolleyes:
    The second fun thing that happened at this meal would be John exclaiming that he loves chocolate cake. Everywhere we went John got chocolate cake, and every time I made fun of him for it…..:rolleyes1
    Here are the boys at the end of lunch.
    [​IMG]


    Coming up : How will Josh get me to stop complaining about being cold? And Who wants to see an ridiculous number of Wishes photos!


    If you are still following along, please let me know, tell me if you need more detail, less detail……
    And how would you all feel about an interruption with a mini TR of my Disney (Nemo) on Ice trip from Saturday?

    Your TR caught my eye! I love it so far! You and your husband are so cute!

    Guess what? We have something in common.

    I am 23, college student, and I really do look like a 12 year old. I work a hospital, and you better believe it I get asked if I'm old enough to work. ( I take xrays)

    I think you look older than 12 :)

    Congrats!!!

    Just found your TR!!! I'm excited because I've read tons of TR's but this is the first Wedding TR I've read! I absolutely love your report!!! Love the pics & all the details! (and the food porn! :rotfl:)

    I am planning to go to Chef Mickey's (my first time there) on our trip this year, so I was glad to read all the info & loved the pics from there!!! I choose it because I can't imagine going to Disney & not seeing Mickey & Minnie...we see them every year in the Judge's Tent at MK but I'd love to see them along with some others. (Goofy is my fav!!!) I'm also buying the PhotoPass CD on our trip this time...I didn't get it last time & regretted it...so I will definitely be doing the same thing you did on your trip...if I see a PhotoPass Photographer, I will be waiting in line for as many photos as I can get! ;)

    I don't understand why anyone wouldn't want to see photos...I personally LOVE seeing other people's pics. It reminds me to write down rides/shows/etc that I don't want to miss on my own trip (in my "Disney binder" of course)!! Plus I love seeing other people enjoying Disney as much as I do! :goodvibes My DH likes Disney, but mostly just for the warm weather...he's not "obsessed" like I am! :lmao:

    I absolutely love it that your DH will wear ears & actually gets into the whole "Disney magic" with the matching sweatshirts, pin trading, food porn pics, etc!!! You are one lucky girl! :) My DH tells me to do all the planning & buy whatever we need for the trip (like shirts for me & our DS, but not for DH) and then he will go along. I don't mind because then I can plan it how I want :laughing: but I think it would be really awesome to have someone actually participate in the whole "Disney magic" with me! (maybe DS...he will be 2 1/2 on our trip!)

    Don't you just love it when people talk in another language & you know its about you? Don't feel bad...this actually happened to me on our last trip! I think they were swearing at me...something about my DS in his stroller? :confused3 I just gave them "a look" but they just continued their conversation & kept looking at me.

    I'm sure you will get to this in your TR, but you mentioned getting photos at the Poly...did you do the Private Photo Session?

    Love all the info & photos...Can't wait to read more!!!

    It is coming, I was just a little slow starting the trip lol


    Chef Mickey is so worth it. We got to see all the characters, and eat in less than an hour. I know it is usually slower, but it is still so worth it. I have only done breakfast, but the food is really good!

    Photopass was really worth it to us. We separated later in the trip, and this was how Josh and I got pictures with both of us in them. The photopass people are really nice, we chatted with a few. I think they are some of the most poorly treated CMs :sad2: When you read TRs with crazy moms trying to make their snowflake's trip perfect, you don't read of them being nice to the poor photopass people.
    The other thing I don't get is why people who buy the CD don't get the shots they want. Some of our pics came out HORRIBLE, (don't worry, I will share :lmao:) so I am glad that we went to a few different photopass people in each park, as we have plenty to chose from.
    If this is your first time getting the CD, make sure you order it from home, you want to be able to do all the editing and stuff. If you have them burn it in the park it won't have the fun stuff, we found that out the hard way.



    I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you have a binder! I am thinking of starting one, as we are talking about taking 2 trips, one for our honeymoon, and one to celebrate me getting my master's next year.....

    I really am a lucky girl when it comes to my husband. Funny story, when we first started dating my friends didn't want me to date him! He really puts off a tough guy image, and can be very serious. They have all since seen through that, and love him.
    You should have heard the beatings he took, telling his Army friends he had to leave training early to go get married at Disney World :rotfl:
    He is a good sport, and tells me that he likes to see me smile :love:

    We had several run ins with the Brazilian tour groups this trip, one was even pleasant! I just think it is rude. I understand not speaking the language, but don't make it super obvious that you are talking about someone! If you don't have something nice to say, say it quietly :lmao:

    Photos from the Poly will be coming on the 3rd day of the trip (so at the rate we are going I will get to them next year :laughing: ) Randy Chapman took us over there after we got married.

    Speaking of which I hope no one is disappointed..... I didn't have one of those super expensive affairs, you will see more when we get there.......






    OK, LAST CALL IS ANYONE INTERESTED IN NEMO ON ICE????? :cloud9::fish::fish::fish::fish::fish::fish:
