    Thank you for coming by:hug: Do you have a TR?
    Thank you Josh. I'm loving your TR. The boys just melt my heart. I cried the day I heard Jett passed away. I just love John Travolta. Kylee had 20 seizures when she was a baby and nothing since, but we were told that it can show it's ugly butt anytime...especially she has some brain involvement.
    Thank you Angie:hug: Keep the popcorn:: as more is too come.

    Thank you:hug:
    Thank you Judy. I'm hoping to have some more report tonight. Kyra is taking over my computer right now doing a report. I'm on my laptop right now that doesn't have my pictures on it.
    We stayed up till 12-1am almost everynight and got up between 7-7:30am most mornings. Can you say exhaustion? That's why a couple of parks we switched so we can sleep in till at least 8:30.

    I left off that we went to bed at midnight, but before I went to bed I set the alarm for 7:30am. Scott had to be at the 9am orientation and I wanted to take Steven and Kylee around the village and to see Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Kyra woke us up at 8:34am!:scared1: Scott and I both jump up. I looked at the alarm clock and it was set for pm:headache:. I didn't even notice this when I set the clock. For those going on a trip...make sure the clocks are set right:rolleyes1.
    Scott jumped up and hurried and got dressed. Thankfully he didn't need to shave this morning. He left the Villa at 8:50. I never seen him get dressed so fast. My plans though were shot. I can't get dressed that fast..plus all meds that I need too do. We all got done at 9:35(fast for me) and I still didn't hear from Scott ,so we started to walk to the gingerbread house for breakfast. The Gingerbread house closes at 10, so we had to hurry. The only thing I didn't like that GKTW changed was we all had to go in to have breakfast or dinner at the same time or the person without you don't get to eat. You get a card that they swipe and once it's swipe..the other person can't use it. We had just started walking and Scott called to say he was done. I told him that we had left and we would be there in a few. We get almost there and a golf cart volunteer stopped to give us a ride. We literally had about 50 yards left. Why couldn't we of gotten a ride like 10 min prior;). We get to the Gingerbread house at 9:50..just in time for some breakfast.

    The girls in line to get some yummy food.

    [​IMG]

    Our first breakfast at GKTW. I loved the biscuit and gray and the Strawberry waffles.

    [​IMG]

    After breakfast we all piled in the van and head to DHS. I was hoping we weren't too late to sign Steven up for the Jedi Training. This is what we saw going to DHS..

    [​IMG]

    Then this... opps..sign got cut off. I told Scott to back up so I can get it all in, but the other cars in back of us didn't move:rotfl::rotfl:

    [​IMG]

    I think it was about 11am when we finally saw this..

    [​IMG]

    We hurried over to the Jedi Training Academy to see if Steven can do this. On our way over we stopped for a second to watch the Disney Channel Rocks.

    [​IMG]

    We got to the Jedi Training and they were mobbed. I really didn't think we would get Steven in. One of the CM saw us and we asked if their was anymore spaces and he told us they had one spot left at 4:20 show.. Perfect. Now I can relax and enjoy the rest of the day.
    We started walking to see what we come to first. We see the backlot( i think that's what it's called)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then I see the restaurant I wanted to go to. After seeing Tim's TR and seeing pictures of the yummy food, but they were all booked for this night:sad2:.

    [​IMG]

    Our first ride was this..

    [​IMG]

    They got us right on...matter of fact, we were the only ones on this tram. Kind of cool. Here are some scenes from the tour.

    After the ride we were left off at where the have some characters wearing costumes. We didn't have a lot of time to see everything as we were off to see the Lights , Motor, Action show.

    My last post we had just gotten off the Backlot Tour and was heading to the Lights, Motor, Action show, but first I got this picture.

    [​IMG]

    We finally get over to here..

    [​IMG]

    This is an awesome show. This was on our must do list.

    The crew waiting for the show to start.

    After the show we went to go see Mike and Sully. One of my favorite characters. Unfortunately Sully wasn't there:sad2:.

    [​IMG]

    After seeing Mike..we were all thirsty, so we went to get some drinks.

    [​IMG]

    We were finally refreshed so it was time to go on Toy Story Mania:cool1:.

    Once we got done with Toy Story Mania..it was time to eat some lunch. For the life of me..I forgot where we ate. I know it was near Toy Story Ride. After lunch the kids wanted to go on Rock 'n' Roller coaster...I know...what a ride to go on after lunch..:rotfl:. Kylee and I sat this one out.

    A couple of pictures of Kylee while we waited

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next up was this ride..

    [​IMG]

    Now Kylee shocked me when she said she wanted to go on this ride. Steven didn't even want to go on. I really though this was a mistake, but she said she liked it. I think it jarred her up a little as she kept swallowing and coughing after wards. The next thing on our list was the Beauty and the Beast live Show. We didn't see this the last time.

    After the show it was time to head on back to the Star Wars: Jedi Training Academy. We got there just a tad early and the kids wanted a snack. Tim, Melody, and Juliana(disname..that's nice) gave us a gift card to get some Mickey ice cream. Thank you!! It was a wonderful treat for the kids.

    Kylee in her own world eating her Mickey ice cream. She was sooo tired.
    [​IMG]

    Korissa and Ashlee also had the Mickey Ice cream, but Kyra had the frozen banana. Steven had already ate his and was at the Jedi Training(they had to be there 15min before the show).

    [​IMG]

    Next post..Jedi Steven..

    Oh no for the alarm clock! :(

    It sounds like a great day at DHS so far. Isn't Toy Story Mania amazing? I can totally see why people rave about that ride.

    I LOVE all of the photos!!!Beauty and the Beast show is my favorite (Probably because it is LISA'S favorite)! Part of her Wish is to spend time with Belle and Beast and to dance with the prince ON THE STAGE at the Beauty and the Beast show at MGM at the End...She doesn't want much does she?:rotfl2::lmao:

    THANK YOU for a picture heavy post, I KNOW what an incredible amount of time that takes to do!!! :flower3::goodvibes:flower3:

    I love all the pictures from your day at DHS!

    So glad that Scott made it to orientation and everyone got breakfast together.

    That's great that you got to see and do so much and your day isn't even over yet. Beauty and the Beast show is so good and glad that you all made it in to see it.

    Whew :thumbsup2 on just getting Steven into the Jedi training show! Can't wait to see how much he enjoyed that experience!

    sounds like a great day at DHS. I love all the pics especially since you did alot of the things weren't able to fit in when we went. It's nice to see pics of everything.

    I'm just glad Kyra woke up or we couldn't of went to DHS this day. We LOVE toy Story Mania. We went on it twice. I would of done it more if the lines weren't so bad. Even the fast pass line.
    I love Beauty and the Beast. Not sure how we missed it the last time.
    I sure hope Lisa gets her wish to dance on stage with the Prince. Even if MAW says its not possible..go up to a CM or Guest relation on your park day and ask.
    I wish I can post more pictures:rotfl:, but you are limited on the post:confused3.

    I would of asked why you were up so early. Sorry you had a bad night. Glad my TR kept you entertained;).
    Thank you Gail:hug:
    This was from my camera. Korissa had the one from Gail. The only parks she took her camera too was Sea World, Busch Gardens, and Discovery Cove.
