    I know that rolling down the street feeling...:lmao:

    My kids - including the 18 year old... are horrified by the idea that they would be served by a "family member" who might tease them about finishing their meal before dessert... lol They're no fun...:rotfl:

    I had to settle for a cocktail from the Lounge last week... I was able to take it out and over to the Osbourne Lights... which was actually lots of fun especially with the glow cube...:goodvibes

    You really got some great photos of the PO... it is a very pretty resort... it does a great job evoking the South... so pretty...:goodvibes

    I would love some of that right now!! :goodvibes It was so good!!!

    It was so yummy!! I love that restaurant.

    It was a perfect evening! Thank you!

    :rotfl2: I seem to get that feeling a lot at Disney!

    LOL! That's hilarious! It definitely can be awkward, but it's all fun!

    Thank you! I would love to visit the real French Quarter someday!

    Day 3
    June 22, 2012
    A Disney's Hollywood Studios Morning


    Today we rose bright and early, Mom at 6:00am and me at 6:50am. We got ready and left the room by 7:25am.

    Our message for the day!

    We made our way to the food court for breakfast. We both had the croissant breakfast sandwich. This was pretty yummy! For Disney quick breakfasts, this was a very good option.

    [​IMG]

    We made it to the bus stop by 7:55am. We were going to DHS this morning! We arrived at DHS a little after 8:20am, and got in line at the turnstiles. While we were waiting in line, a woman behind us asked us if we were on the Disboards! It was so surprising, but of course we said yes, and she said she noticed our Lime Green Mickey Heads on our bags! See, those do come in handy. We talked to the woman and her family for a while, and soon enough, the line started moving. There were no troubles with our passes today, thank goodness, and once we got through I took both tickets and took off!

    Where was I going you ask? Well, TSM of course! I speed walked down the same boulevard we rolled out of just the night before. My 36” legs paid off, and I met back up with my mom at ToT after I scored these:

    (excuse the hangnail)

    There was a line forming, but the ride didn’t open until 9:00am. While I was in line, I decided to play with my settings on my camera.

    Once the ride opened, we walked right on. We were the first elevator of the day! Woo!

    [​IMG]

    Yeah, it’s a horrible picture, but I was terrified of getting yelled at, so I made it snappy!

    [​IMG]

    After our ridiculously fun ride in the Twilight Zone, we headed over to RnRC!

    [​IMG]

    There was about a 20 minute wait which went by pretty quickly! We also had some great views!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ok, don’t judge!

    A Small Obsession...
    June 22, 2012


    After our thrilling and unflattering photo, we wanted to ride ToT again, so we checked the wait time. It was only 20 minutes, so we got right back in line!!

    [​IMG]

    We loved the ride SO MUCH, we wanted to ride again, but the wait time was too long! BUTTTTTTT, it was passed 9:50am, soooooo we got FPs!!!!!

    [​IMG]

    It was time to use up our TSM FPs, so we made our way over to the Pixar Area!

    We hopped in line, and only waited a little bit. I love the queue though!

    I am a huge fan of ToT queue pictures, so I enjoyed each and everyone of yours. I never noticed that area of cracked tiles before. What a great touch. You also got some great shots of the inside queue. Taking pictures certainly makes the wait go so much faster.

    I am terrible at TSM, too. Eandesmom kept smokin' me in October. :rotfl2: It took me until this year just to break 100K, and even that's not consistent.

    Great updates and a lot of terrific shots.

    Thank you! I love taking pictures in that queue! You're right-it makes the time pass more quickly, and there are some really great details!!

    :rotfl2: I am literally the same! It's just not one of my strengths!

    Thank you!! I love that ride too! It's definitely my absolute favorite! :goodvibes

    Hey Emma, I'm back after a hiatus myself so I'm glad that you had a break as well! I have so much to comment on!

    Firstly, congrats on the new apartment and getting to go kayaking every morning! What a way to start the day! The view looks great as well.

    Love how you visited different resorts, it was nice going on the tour with you ;-) The pics of Pop Century bought back memories and I loved that computer key board as well!

    The cars area of Art of Animation looks cool and mmm breakfast at MSB and a trip to Goofy's Candy Co= pure heaven!!!

    I was sorry to read about the fiasco at MK with the turnstiles but glad you enjoyed your day at that park as well as DHS. Yay on riding ToT so many times! I absolutely love that ride!

    Looking forward to reading more and good luck with your studies. Hope it goes well. Tanz :-) xx

    That is so fun that you both love ToT that much. Wonderful queue pictures, I have never noticed that "rose garden" sign, I love the details they add.

    Why doesn't Disney actually assemble breakfast sandwiches and melt the cheese? I do not understand that. Same thing happened with our breakfast flatbread and while it was pretty good, it would have been better all melty!

    Yay DHS! Hahah I would never judge your 'rock on' picture. I always do that too. It's what the cool people do. :cool2:

    The way you have an obsession with ToT, I have one with TSM. SO MUCH LOVE. I love your queue pictures from both of the rides!

    Is your semester over? If not, I wish you luck on the rest of your exams/everything you need to get done. If SO, then Merry Christmas! Enjoy your break! :goodvibes

    Wow... I've ridden ToT and you definitely got an amazing variety of details in that queue... I like the ride... but I LOVE all the theming...:thumbsup2

    I Guess having long legs would help you in getting to the mad rush that is the running of the TSM madness... (Disney's own equivalent to the Running of the Bulls in Spain...;) It is a really fun ride though...:goodvibes

    Welcome back! Thank you!

    I love capturing all of the details in the different resorts! It's really fun...and free! :goodvibes

    AoA is so amazing! I really want to see the rest of it, but the Nemo and Cars sections were just fanatsically done!

    I'm glad things got figured out at MK, and we didn't have any other problems like that for the rest of the trip! Which is really great! I love ToT! It was so fun to do that! I love being able to just spontaneously jump in line! :goodvibes

    Thank you! :goodvibes

    We really do! I love all of those little details! I think that's a big part of why I love that ride so much! :goodvibes

    :confused3 I don't understand that either! I think that would make things so much better!

    :lmao: What can I say? I'm pretty hip!

    I do love that ride so much! Everything about it!! :goodvibes

    YES! I am done until after New Years! I am very happy to be home for the holidays, and Christmas is literally... TOMORROW!!! :santa: Merry Christmas!!

    I agree! The theming just makes the ride so much better! I love the details!

    :rotfl2: It helped, but that is a huge challenge! I should have been training for weeks! ;)

    Y'all were off to a really great start that day....getting lots of rides in! :thumbsup2 I am really loving all your pictures...especially the ToT ones! Love TSMM so much! Ed & I gave Reid the video game for Christmas. We played it yesterday and today. Not as fun as the real thing but it helps to give us a "fix". :rotfl2:

    party: VERY BIG NEWS party:

    Hi everyone!! I am sooooo sorry about being MIA lately. I have a good reason, though! Things have been crazy around here between work, the holidays, and oh yeah, packing!

    Packing? Packing what you say???

    WELLLLLLL, the big news is that my Mom and step Dad are....

    wait for it....

    :banana: MOVING TO NAPLES, FLORIDA!!!!!!!!!!! :banana:

    They have been looking for a while now, and my step Dad got offered a job a few weeks ago, and everything lined up perfectly. Things have been Ca-razy!!! Mom doesn't have a job down there yet, however she is sticking out the rest of the school year up here anyway in order to finish out her contract. Step Dad literally rolled out of the driveway for the last time THIS MORNING. We packed up the moving van, and he piled in with the dog, car in tow. It's about a 27 hour drive from here to Naples, but they are breaking it up into a few days. They have an apartment down there already, and step Dad starts his new job on Monday the 14th of January! This is just crazy stuff people.

    If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook this is also a surprise to you because we are trying to keep it on the downlow up here until things get finalized and my Mom tells the principal. I have a lot of people from around here on those sites, so I didn't want to spill the beans!

    So, this place is in Florida, but how close to Disney? This was, of course, the first question we asked, and it looks like about a little over 3 hours drive. Wayyyy closer than 24 hours! :rotfl: ALSO, they are right near the BEACH! :hyper: I am so excited for them!

    What does this mean for my future?

    More trips to Florida (aka Disney) of course!! I can't wait! Mom is planning on moving down the couple days after graduation which is the 14th of June. Soooooo, she needs help driving! Sooooooo, that means a trip to Florida for my DBF and I!!!!! :cool1: We're going to Disney again!!!!! We will drive down Mom's car while she drives the big moving truck. THEN, she will bring us up to Disney for DBF's FIRST EVER VISIT! I am beyond excited, and I can't stop planning!

    I don't really know how to show him enough that he enjoys it, but not enough to turn him off! I want a good first impression! This is insane! If any of you have experience with a 21 year old first timer to Disney World, PLEASE give me some help!!! It would be MUCH appreciated!! Expect a PTR up sometime in the next week or so. I still have to get the ball rolling again on this one!! :rotfl: I promise the next few updates will be tonight!!

    So, to wrap up....

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    But seriously, if you have any tips on a first timer (21 year old, sporty, male, etc.) PLEASE give me some advice! Food, attractions, rides, parks, etc???

    Thank you so much! I'm really so excited for this move, and even though I'll still be up here in snowy Vermont/New Hampshire, I have more opportunities for visits!

    That is wonderful news. Naples is supposed to be just gorgeous! I hope it works out wonderful for parents and how wonderful to have a place to visit to get away from the winter blues.

    Wow, so much exciting news!!!!!! Ahhhh yay!!!

    Well, it just so happens that I was 21 years old the first time I went to Disney. (I know, I know. It's insane.) However, I am not a sporty male. So... I don't really know how to help ya there! I feel like you should let him look at the restaurant choices to see what appeals to him, but everything else you should plan normally. I feel like it shouldn't be a turnoff... he might just love it! Especially if he sees how much you love it!!

    YAY!!!!!!!!

    I hear it's beautiful! When he went down to interview, he sent pictures of the beach at sunset, and it was just breathtaking!! I can't wait to escape from this cold weater!! :thumbsup2

    I know!! How crazy!!! I'm so excited!!

    Wow! What a coincidence! :goodvibes LOL! Thanks, I've ordered some guide books, so I'll probably go through them with him to see what he likes. Slowly, of course, as Disney can be overwhelming! :hyper: Of course he's heard me rave about Disney and seen my pictures, but he probably wasn't paying attention! :rotfl: I hope you're right! I want him to love Disney too!
