    You guys had great luck with the meet and greets! Jim and I did the Donald and Daisy one and I think Donald was in a knight costume. I need to go and look at my pictures.

    Awesome that you got to meet all of the villians! We only got Frollo and that's mainly because the poor guy is kind of neglected.

    Looks like you guys had an amazing MNSSHP experience, how awesome you got to go two nights so you got to do almost everything! Your pics with all of the characters are so great, especially Jack and Sally! Love it!

    It really is so fun to see them out and about walking!

    I'll be honest, I dont know the point of the Villains show but I just love seeing them all out there! haha

    Thank you! :thumbsup2

    We really were lucky! I have seen pictures of Donald as a knight, which makes more sense since Daisy is a princess. But I love the pumpkin costume so no complaints from me :lmao:

    Poor Frollo is neglected!

    We did, thank you so much! :)

    Day 6 - MNSSHP, the conclusion!

    We then walked over to look at Woody's Dance Party and grab some candy. But before heading in we saw BRER RABBIT just hanging around outside! He was with a handler and I asked if we could take a picture with him and she said sure! I was super excited, yet another pixie dust moment!

    Then we headed into Woody's Dance Party, all 3 characters were out so I snapped some quick pics.

    We headed into Adventureland and were going to line up for Aladdin but they were leaving for the parade and said Jasmine & Genie would be out at 10:45. Since we were there, Dad suggested we ride the Magic Carpets since there was really no wait, so we did! We also stopped at the Tiki Room treat spot. Around 10:30 I decided to get in line for Jasmine & Genie. They came out on time but the line moved SO slow. I like when the characters take their time with guests but this particular Jasmine was just so slow. This was one of the only instances where I was really getting aggravated, and I wondered if it was even going to be worth it. Finally it was our turn and I got a big hug from Genie.

    And while Jasmine was signing for me I got the best sprinkling of pixie dust...Aladdin & Abu came out to join us! The wait definitely then became worth it because I was able to meet all 4 characters at once.

    It was after 11 at this point. We tried to meet Jack Sparrow but his line was already closed. I told my parents to wait in that area while I ran to the Frontierland pin store to grab some more mystery pins :) While I was gone my parents took a PP pic in front of Pirates and got some candy at that treat spot!

    We headed out of Adventureland. Dad was super tired but we still had one last thing to accomplish! He dediced to hang out in the hub while Mom & I headed over to the Tomorrowland Dance Party in hopes of seeing Boo. As we got closer and closer I was so nervous we weren't going to see her. But then I spotted her little antennas and I basically screamed at Mom "SHE'S HERE!". I'm pretty sure all the characters were out but I only had eyes for Boo. We of course awkwardly danced over to her and were able to get some cute pics with her!

    we took a last run through the Space Mountain & Stitch treat spots before meeting back up with Dad to head out of the park.

    Honestly, this party was perfect. I was nervous that it being sold out would hinder our plans but it didn't at all. Between both parties I was able to accomplish EVERY single thing on my list, which I never thought I would do. I am so glad I did such careful planning, and that I received such moments of pixie dust!

    We got back to the room and crashed. But not before taking a picture of all the candy we accumulated!

    OOOH Brer Rabbit, now there's a rare treat. I got a pic with him like 4 years ago at AK and haven't seen him since. Well, at least for meet and greet.

    It amazes me how uncrowded the dance parties are. You would think they'd be packed.

    OMG Alexis!!! All 4 AT ONCE!!! That truly is a pixie dust moment.

    What an awesome party. Geez, I hope I have even half the pixie dusted moments you had at my next one.

    your updates make me so excited for MNSSHP!!! I can't wait! I hope we get to do a lot of the things you've gotten to do!

    how awesome is the picture with Aladdin, genie, jasmine and abu!

    and bullseye! and boo! what a great night!

    and...holy pile of candy! my girls would have been rolling around in that, giggling like sugar crazed maniacs (which is why I sneak so much into the trash or send it to work with my husband after Halloween!)!

    WHAT?! There's more MNSSHP!! I totally thought your last update was the end of MNSSHP. That is amazing, you guys got to do so much. I didn't know Boo was out at the Party! That's so awesome that you got to see her and take photos with her!

    What a fun end to your 2nd MNSSHP!

    So exciting that you got to meet all 4 Aladdin characters! I was so hoping that would happen to us at MVMCP but we were two groups too far ahead for that. And I agree the Aladdin group are a chatty bunch, they are great but their line gets long.

    Boo is so adorable, I'm glad you guys found her!

    Holy cow, you got Brer Rabbit!!! I don't think I've ever seen him out doing greets.

    And all four Aladdin characters! I wish we had been as lucky as you guys!

    That's a heck of a lot of candy.

    Brer Rabbit!!! :yay: That's amazing!!

    Really great that you ended up seeing all 4 Aladdin characters at once too. Looks like your night was full of pixie dust!

    Love the picture of you & Boo. She's so adorable! I was excited that they had her out at the dance party too.

    It was crazy how empty the dance party was, but I guess a treat for the few kids that were there- they got the characters all to themselves!

    There really is no way to describe it other than "pixie dust moment", Rob!! We really were so lucky with our parties, I certainly hope you can have the same luck when you go!! :)

    MNSSHP is the best! It really was a great night full of great characters. Yes SO much candy :rotfl: it definitely lasted us a good while once we got back home!

    Haha yes more if you could believe it! Boo was so adorable, I really wish they had her out more!

    It was exciting! I'm sorry you didn't have the same luck :(

    Thank you, we were so happy!

    Seeing Brer Rabbit was such an awesome and unexpected moment. I wish you guys had the same luck we did with the Aladdin gang :( Oh yes, we certainly went a little nuts with the trick or treating :lmao:

    Thank you! :goodvibes

    So much pixie dust, it was such a great night. Thank you! She is SO adorable, they really should have her out on a regular basis!

    DAY 7 - HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS

    We headed to the bus stop around 8 this morning. This was the one morning where we definitely waited a while for the bus, probably around 20 minutes. I was a little bummed because I knew HS opened early sometimes, but since it was one of the closest parks to our hotel, I knew it wouldn't take too long to get there.

    We of course stopped for some photos before heading in. Loved that they had this out!

    Donald & Daisy were out, but the line was already closed by the time we got there.

    I don't have anything in my notes, but I don't think we waited long for the turnstiles to open. We of course headed right to TSMM. We grabbed FPs (double dipped here) with a return time of 12:15 and debated if we wanted to ride standby. The wait was listed at 25 minutes we decided to pass and would just ride with our FPs. We decided to get in line and wait for Buzz & Woody to come out at 9. There were maybe 3 or 4 groups in front of us.

    After that, we headed over to ride ToT standby, which still only had a 5 minute wait!

    We walked right into the pre-show room. Now let me just say that both Mom & Dad were really nervous about this ride. I of course was just happy and excited to be reunited with one of my favorite Disney rides! I kept reassuring them that it would be fine. Dad, however, was so nervous that he would NOT stop talking!! To the point that you will see in our ride photo, that he is STILL talking to me!

    :rotfl2: We laugh about it now because it was pretty funny. The best part is, they both LOVED it!! In fact, they couldn't wait to ride it again later! Don't they know to trust their Disney loving daughter? We slo stopped and took some PP pics in front of TOT.

    And then stopped to take some pics in front of the hat!

    After that, we did the Great Movie Ride and of course got the Gangster side! Sorry I don't think we took pics on this ride! When we got off, we had to decide which character at the Hat we wanted to meet, and decided on Donald since Dad likes him!

    Mom & Dad had to use the bathroom, and Stitch was out with a very short line, so I decided to wait to meet him. Mom & Dad actually made it back just in time so we could all get in the pic!

    your dad is so funny on ToT! seriously, I don't blame him--until that first drop i'm a ball of anxiety. I love that ride, but hate waiting for it to just get started!

    your ToT pic outside is cute!

    sounds like a great start to the day!

    Awesome photos with Woody and Buzz! I've always wanted to meet them but their line is always so long! Good idea to go there first thing, I'm always too busy being obsessed with TSM to make it over to them early!

    Too funny about your parents on TOT. I'm glad they loved it though, great ride photo!

    I agree, the anticipation is a killer!

    Thank you!

    Thank you! Yay how cool, I will certainly hop over to your TR!

    That would be awesome, wouldn't it?!

    Thank you! haha I don't blame you, TSM certainly is a priority!!

    Thank you, I'm glad they loved it too :goodvibes
