    Great pics! I wish we had made time to check out AOA, but getting there from ASMu via bus and how tired we felt most days kept us from checking that off our list. It looks awesome, I think we'll have to save some extra money and stay there next time!

    You are so right!

    I definitely love Pop. And AoA is so colorful and fun, and definitely appealing to kids! But I would love to stay at POR one trip too!

    Yay for Mickey waffles :thumbsup2

    I'm glad we had the extra morning to walk around and look at everything, otherwise we definitely wouldn't have been able to do it!

    Thanks!

    Sometimes you just don't have enough time to do it all! I loved the 50s section and would definitely like to stay there! AoA is certainly so pretty and lively :goodvibes

    If AoA wasn't right across the bridge, we definitely wouldn't have been able to check it out. I'd love to spend time checking out all the resorts, but like you said you're just so tired and don't have the time to do it!

    Day 6 - More resort exploring & heading to MK!

    The sun was beaming today and Dad was feeling the heat. He decided to rest in the main building while Mom & I headed on to the Lion King & Little Mermaid sections.

    I absolutely loved the Ursula statue...I guess it's pretty obvious that she's one of my favorites ;)

    We headed back to Dad at the Main Building and decided to grab some lunch at the Food Court. Mom & Dad split a pizza and I got the Buffalo turkey sandwich. This hit the spot for me, it was so tasty! I was told the pizza was good too.

    We walked back over the bridge to Pop where I headed back to the room to shower while Mom & Dad stopped at Petals Pool Bar for an afternoon beverage :p

    They came back to the room while I was finishing getting ready, and soon enough it was time to head to MK for our second MNSSHP!!

    Mom decided to get in on the ear fun!

    And the color of Dad's shirt, as you may have noticed, was very fitting for the occasion!

    We got to MK around 3:40 i think? And they were already letting MNSSHP folks in which was perfect! This party was actually sold out too! We picked up another set of SOTMK cards and took a bunch of pictures in Town Square and on Main Street.

    Haha, whether or not your Mom's a goofball, I do enjoy when someone gets in the photo with the log as it gives a reference as to how big the tree and characters really are.

    Wow, they let people in earlier all the time. I guess with sold out parties you sure don't want them all showing up at the same time.

    That's my goal too to do TWO (or more) parties on one trip. Halloween Parties I mean as I did do 2 Christmas ones. But MNSSHP is better.

    Your Dad should just break down and get some Mickey Ears, but BIG PROPS to him for improvising (or at least playing along). :goodvibes

    You guys look so great all decked out for the party!

    I love the idea of resort hopping and exploring the different areas. I'm adding it to my 2014 Disney bucket list!

    Yum, Mickey and Pop waffles! I'm not sure which I like more.

    All of the pictures of Pop made me homesick. I haven't stayed there since 2010 but I love that resort.

    AOA looks awesome. I'm hoping that Mom and I might have time to go explore it next month.

    I so wish we had done two parties when we were there in October! There is just so much to do that one just isn't enough.

    Very cute PP pictures on Main Street!

    Thank you for the kind words! :)

    Thank you!! :)

    Haha they certainly are big!

    I'm SO glad we did 2 parties so we were really able to experience alot of what MNSSHP had to offer!

    He definitely didn't mind playing along! I'm not sure if he would cave and get ears but you will see in an upcoming day that he caved and bought a shirt ;)

    Thank you! I loved having time to explore the 2 resorts, my goal for a future trip will be to explore some of the deluxe hotels :love:

    Since Pop is the only Disney resort I've stayed at, I can't really compare it to anything. But I really really love it as well!

    I hope you do get to explore AoA, it really is a fun resort!

    I'm so glad we did 2 parties, because you're right there is just so much to do. Even with 2 parties there was still stuff I wish we could've done!

    And thank you! :)

    I love your AoA pics! I can't wait until I finally get there!

    your shirt and ears for the party were very cute! I tried to wear my daughters when we were on our trip, but they hurt my head after awhile and I had to give up.... :worried:

    love the pic of your dad making ears! very cute!

    Day 6 - MNSSHP, Night 2!

    We had time to do something before I wanted to line up for Jack & Sally so we decided to do the Peoplemover again! When we got off, we headed right back towards Main Street where I lined up for Jack & Sally. It was around 5:05 and I was the 7th group in line! I told mom and dad not to wait with me right away and that they could join me in about an hour. So what did they do with their spare time? Met the big cheese again!

    I'm so glad they decided to do that, they got some really cute pictures! When they were done, Mom came and joined me (and brought some popcorn and beverages with her too :)) and Dad followed about half hour later.

    Promptly at 7 o'clock, Jack & Sally came out! I was SO excited! It wasn't long before it was our turn. These two were phenomenal..totally in character and exactly how I hoped they'd be.

    The 2 hour wait was totally worth it in my opinion. I remember seeing this movie with my dad when it came out in theaters and it holds such a special place in my heart!

    As we were walking out of the greet, the Tremaines were coming from backstage! We literally almost bumped into them and Drizella screamed "CAN I HELP YOU?!". It was so funny, I wish we could've caught it on tape!

    It was around 7:15 and the party was in full swing! We went right over to TST to meet Mickey & Minnie where the line was basically non existant! We did have to wait about 15 minutes or so, but I was expecting worse so I did not mind.

    Once we got in we got lots of hugs from Mickey & Minnie. I absolutely adored their costumes!

    Once we were done we headed down Main Street to try and catch the 7:45 villain show. I only had one villain left to meet and that was Cruella! But when we got to the castle it was PACKED. We decided to come back for one of the later shows. Instead, we headed towards Fantasyland! We passed by where Alice & Mad Hatter were meeting and the line was pretty short so we hopped on to meet them! They were very fun, especially Mad Hatter!

    Oh my gosh! I love all the pictures of jack and Sally! Especially the selfie--that is totally adorable! Actually, I love all these party pictures. They are really making me want to go in the fall so we can go to the Halloween party! Can't wait to see more!

    Oh, the Tremaines! they are so hilarious!

    Yay I can't wait to hear about the rest of MNSSHP!

    I love the Jack and Sally photos and I'm SO happy to hear they were well worth the wait!

    Mickey and Minnie in their Halloween outfits are too cute!

    Haha, the folks didn't waste any time bailing on you did they? :lmao: So cute they went to visit Mickey.

    AHHHH I want a picture with Jack and Sally!!! I am so going to MNSSHP this year and they better be there.

    I love meeting the characters in different outfits. It makes it all feel new. Good job on your character meets so far! :thumbsup2

    That looks like an awesome start to your MNSSHP! I hate to admit that I've never seen Nightmare Before Christmas even though I have it in my Disney movie collection.

    Thank you! The Halloween party is so wonderful, I really hope you get to go one year!

    Thank you! I was glad they were worth the wait too :goodvibes

    Haha so true! But in their defense I did encourage them. So funny that of all things to do they chose Mickey- I'm raising them right :rotfl:

    I hope they keep Jack & Sally around too, they're a perfect addition to MNSSHP!

    I totally agree! I don't care if I've met the character before, if they are in a different outfit I need to meet them again!

    Thank you! :)

    Thanks! Omgosh really?? You definitely need to try and watch it one day!

    Day 6 - MNSSHP, Night 2 Continued

    After meeting Alice & Mad Hatter, we headed over to Princess Fairtytale Hall to meet the second set of princesses we didn't meet on our first party night. On the way we saw some friends heading to their break!

    The posted wait time for Rapunzel/Snow was 30 minutes, which was fine with me! Dad decided to sit this one out so it was just Mom and I. The time seemed to go by pretty fast and soon enough we were in the room and meeting Snow White & her prince! The group before us had a little girl and the prince danced with her and it was the cutest thing! I wasn't expecting much from these two, but they were actually really lovely!

    Then it was time. A moment long in the making. Time to meet Eugene Fitzherbert aka Flynn Rider!! I feel bad that I kind of neglected Rapunzel here, but I doubt I am the first to do so when Flynn is around. These two were really great and I made sure to ask Flynn what was in his satchel! He showed me and the PP photographer even caught it which was awesome! I have the ulimate cheese smile in these pics :goodvibes

    We met back up with dad and decided we deprived him long enough and it was time to get some candy! We stopped again at Pinocchio Village Haus for the yummy Werthers and also stopped at the spot near Peter Pan's Flight. It was around 8:50 now so we headed over to Storybook Circus to get in line for Donald and Daisy. This line took about 30 minutes. Mom & Dad grabbed some candy at the treat spot near there and then came back and waited with me. We chatted with a nice lady behind us, which helped pass the time.

    After that we headed towards Tomorrowland. We were going to check out the dance party but it wasn't going on as the fireworks were about to start. So instead we hit up the Space Mountain, Stich's Great Escape, and Speedway treat spots. The fireworks started going off, and it was cool to be walking in Tomorrowland while it was going on. We kept walking and ended up at the Chesire Cafe. We decided to take a seat there until the fireworks were done. It was actually a decent view and it was nice to sit and relax while watching them! Sorry no pics!

    Once the fireworks were over, we headed towards the hub to try our luck at the 10:05 Villains Show. It was around 9:50 and it was not crowded at all yet. There was already someone forming a line for Cruella, so we stood behind her and waited. Then the show started!

    Awww one of may favourite M&G has to be the Pooh gang since they have so far to walk. It's so fun seeing them just walking.

    The Villains Mix and Mingle is cute (and really really short), but do you have any idea what it's about??? Haha, I have absolutely no clue myself.

    Nice job meeting all the villains!! That's impressive.
