Well there are lots and lots more to come!

I hope to get an update written and posted tonight! I have some really fun fastpass photos to share from our afternoon at Magic Kingdom!
After our wonderful lunch we were recharged, and ready to go! I was very excited, as we were blasting through the things I wanted to do so fast, that I knew we would be able to avoid the crazy closing time buss packedness!
We wandered over to Fantasy Land to get some more Fastpasses, and I got this great photo on the way of the new Little Mermaid ride!
I love that things are really starting to take shape behind the fence, and that we could see things that looked like real attractions starting to appear!
We stopped, and picked up these beauties
Because we had just eaten lunch, we decided that there couldn’t be a better time to ride Splash Mountain! We slowly wandered over to the entrance, but stopped to put everything in our bag into plastic baggies. When we rode Splash in May we were placed in the front row, and soaked to the bone. I don’t think we would have gotten that wet if we had jumped in a pool, it was that bad.
I was terrified this would happen again, but figured that we would just go back and change if it did, I mean we are being spontaneous right?!
I decided that before we used our Splash Fastpasses, that we should get a photo of our wonderful collection!! I know that they are changing the rules soon so that we wouldn’t be able to tour this way again, but hey, this is what we had at the time!
Once we were all packed up, we jumped into the Fastpass line, and wandered in! I always feel kinda bad as we pass the folks waiting in line! Before we knew it, it was time to load!
We were seated in the back of the log, and I was so relieved that we wouldn’t be soaked at the end!!!
Before we knew it we were pulling back into the loading area, and I was freaking out at Josh to get the camera so that I could get a redneck of our ride photo!!!
And our beautiful log!
We stopped on the way out to listen to Chip and Dale in their little house! Josh loved this little detail!
And then we explored the gift shop!
Josh found a small Lotso, during our May trip he brought a large one home! He was excited.
We decided to wander down through frontie ville, and see where we ended up!
Much to my surprise, we ended up here
Neither Josh, nor I had ever ridden the tea cups before, but there was almost no line, so we figured, Why Not!?
We hopped into the almost nonexistent line
While we waited, I tried, and failed to get a photo of the mouse in the teapot!
We were quickly let in, and Josh told me that I could pick whatever cup I wanted, and of course I raced to a pretty pink cup!
My handsome husband, waiting for the ride to start!
Josh took the camera, and got a quick photo of me!
And off we went!!!!!
I was very surprised to see that they started the ride with empty cups!
Josh is normally the person who doesn’t do spinney rides, but he wanted to spin in the Tea Cups! I had to tell him to stop… he was making me sick!
Before we knew it, our ride was over, and we were sent to the exit!
Because I hadn’t been allowed to “over plan” I asked Josh what he wanted to do! We wandered off again, this time toward Tomorrowland.
However, I was yet again distracted by something shiny!
But, where do we go now?!
you two are just too cute loving you TR and the photo's
What a fun update! I love all your Splash photos - of the loading area, the ending area, and of COURSE I love a good redneck ride photo.
It's so nice to SEE Fantasyland growing. Before, when it was just walls and noise, you just felt like you had less room in Fantasyland. Now, you feel like there's a whole new world over there - I can't wait to see it!
I went back and forth to buy that little Lotso. I stopped and smelled him at every single store I went to, but I never ended up buying him. I carried him around for AWHILE, but never took him home with me.
In your photo with the FPs, what are the light green ones next to Winnie the Pooh? That is QUITE a collection of FPs; I'm gonna miss that ability to collect them all day and be able to ride at night with no wait.
That was a might hefty fastpass collection that you had there. I have to admit, even being as experienced in WDW as I am, I have never amassed a collection that large. It's a shame that they're not going to allow it anymore.
Great day so far.
Thank you! We like to have fun together, the result is alot of fun photos!
Josh looked at big Lotso on our last trip allllll week before getting him. Our nephew loves him to death, and tries to chew on him, very cute, and very worth the cost!
I know what you mean about the fantasy land area, the wall does make it seem very small, combined with the rows of strollers in front of the wall, and it takes up alot of the walking space!
I am not always great with the rednecking, but we are getting a new camera soon, and I hope it will be even better!
The green passes are to Buzz Light year!!!
I am mixed on how I feel about the change in Fastpass hoarding I am going to miss doing it, but is sure is frustrating to get into the fastpass line and have the wait be just as long as standby because people are using them waaaayyyyyy past the time. I am thinking that if it really makes people mad, and becomes and issue they will just change it back to the current way of doing it
I know the feeling. Front row is brutal on a cold morning.
That's just a sign of weakness.
I can't believe that ride is so short. You'd think no more people than there are in that line, it might last a little bit longer. I guess they just found the perfect ride length to minimize their proten spill clean up efforts.
I will never forget how wet we were in May, it was just insane....
I can't help but be weak when sad little faces are looking at me as I charge by!!!
The Tea Cups are a young person's game... We are officially old since we can't handle them I guess
After much discussion about how we are too old for the Tea Cups, and how they were way more spinney than I thought they would be.
Ohhhh, good plan, that is about as unspinney as it gets!
I was surprised a bit that there was a steady stream of people headed up to ride!
We hop on, and off we goooooo, well maybe not that fast, but we went!
Look at this handsome man!
. Too many photos of our ride
After our journey through we decided that it was time to face Zurg again! Look at the times on these, we are bad people who use our Fastpasses outside the time frame.
This was our most intense ride of the trip. I often lose to Josh, not by a little either
However thanks to the wonderful friends I have made here on the DIS, I knew for a place to look for a great bonus target, and while I didnt find it on our first ride through, I sure did this time!
I got my best score EVER!
I tried to get a photo of Joshs score, but ended up with this
About halfway through the ride he noticed that I was beating him. I have to preface this photo by telling you all that we cant play Monopoly in our house, because Josh isnt a good loser.
Anywho, he figured out that I was wining, and as a result, decided to do this in our photo.
Yes, Josh is sticking his tough out at his wife. Sore loser much?
On a side note, has anyone ever notice that the labels they put on the bottom of the photo do not match your score? I just did
He still tells me that I cheat at Buzz, and wont let it go
Wow. You must have really smoked him if his score wouldn't even show up.
It looks like the two of you were really having a good time riding Buzz.
The Buzz story sounds awfully familiar! My DF is a sore loser, as well. I kicked his butt last trip (I NEVER win) and he was convinced I cheated!! If I dare to bring it up again, he would probably still say the same thing to this day!
We really like the Buzz ride, what can I say, we are easily amused... Don't worry I promise we ride other things later.
Apparently boys are touchy about shooty games
What do you mean by that???
By the way, did you notice that picture in my TR that showed my score over 100k... all while a toddler was spinning our car randomly around?
I am guessing you hit a few of those hidden targets to get that score
You may join my cheater club now
Due to our lack of plan we were once again left to stare at each other and have this conversation:
Me: What do you want to do
Josh: I don’t know, what do you want to do
Me: I wasn’t allowed to plan what I want to do
Josh: Ok let’s go ride Pooh
And so it was settled.
We headed back to fantasy land, and over to Pooh. We stopped to take a photo of this cute detail that we had never noticed before.
We bounced over, and into the Fast Pass line! (We have never gone through the regular queue here, someday we will, so that I can play with all the fun stuff!!!
After bouncing and floating along with Pooh and friends we headed out, and decided this was a good time to get a few photos of the construction that we could see!
Continued in next post!
We wandered back through Fantasy land, and stopped to grab a photo that we had never done before, but is classic Disney
This is one of Joshs favorite moves, so he was very happy to take these quick shots. We grabbed that last one to use in the scrap book! Remember, I like to share good, and bad photos. I am well aware that this is not the best photo ever taken of me BWHAAHHAHA!
We were greeted by a fantastic site as we walked through a set of magical doors.
It was a perfect show as always! Of course after we had to stop so I could look around the shop a bit!
Im not sure how we got over to the Jungle Cruise, or what our thought process that we should walk clear to the other side of the park was, but that is what my camera tells me we did!
Little known fact about me, I HATE spiders.
Anyone looking for a kitten?
We bordered our boat to begin our 2 week cruise. Here we met one of the funniest Cast Members that we have encountered.
In his words We were off, like a Kardishian wedding!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHA
Here are a few photos from our journey. Sadly this is not all of them!
Can anyone tell me if this is somewhat new? I have a feeling that this game has been here forever, but I just never noticed it?
After our cruise Josh headed for the Nut cart in Adventure land! The roasted nut carts are one of his favorite places to use a few snack credits while we are in the world! The time stamp on the receipt says 4:02 so it was about time for tummys to start growling!
Hmmm... Fantasyland to Jungle Cruise???? Apparently you must have wanted to get on a boat, but didn't want "that" song stuck in your head.
It's a shame the stone won. I've heard stories of people pulling the sword out, but I've never seen it.
I'm not sure exactly how long the little boats have been there, but it seems like they've been there as long as I can remember.
Great pictures! You are making me want to start my own trip report!
