    Wow, lots of stuff going on. I hope your grandmother is ok and gets out of the hospital soon.

    Love the AKL pics, can't wait to go back :) how lucky the giraffe was out.

    Dinner looks delicious! Breakfast is too, definitely worth a try in the future.

    Congrats on school almost done! I hope the tests go well :) do you have any break between when the new classes start?

    And I forgot on my last update, but after Boma, we strolled around AKL for a few minutes and went to the gift shop, then headed back to our hotel. So we decided to turn in a little early, so we could rest up for another day at: Magic Kingdom!!

    Senior pictures!

    I only have the proofs right now, so the quality is not very good. And these are just about half of them, but they're the ones I'm ordering.

    Thanks for all the compliments!! :hug:


    The 2 dresses came from JC Penney.The shorts outfit came from Kohl's, and its actually a one piece outfit, that I thought was really neat.

    It has been very hard choosing the ones I wanted to get! I'm trying not to go overboard on them!!

    Then to Space Mountain, with a 20 minute wait:

    We made our way over to PhilharMagic! (15 minute wait)

    [​IMG]


    After that, we got fastpasses for the Pooh ride, and was surprised, by these "Surprise Fastpasses", that came out after the Pooh ones!!
    (Have ya'll heard of those? This was new to me)


    [​IMG]

    They were for PhilharMagic, but we had just finished that! So we didn't use them.

    A little bit later, we went on Haunted Mansion, with a 15 minute wait:

    Very nice low wait times. You got a lot done. Tried the Laugh Floor for the first time recently and LOVED it! So funny!!!

    Never heard about the bonus FPs but that's really cool.

    What a wonderful morning with hardly any waits.
    I have gotten those FP's before too for Philharmagic. The thing is, you really don't gain much by using them. You just get let in before everyone else, but then as they crowd in the standby, you get shoved to the back and still wait for the show like anyone else before going in the theatre.

    What a perfect day...I really don't think it could have gotten any better!!! Monsters, Inc. is so funny...and it just kept getting better from there!

    I had never heard of the surprise Fastpasses either, until this morning when I was reading another TR and the poster had the same thing happen! Just another element of Disney magic. Too bad they weren't for something you could've used them for!

    Y'alls wait times were awesome!

    After HM, we decided to ride the Liberty Square Riverboat.

    Then it was time to use our Pooh ride fastpasses.



    (Notice the love-bird photobombers in this pic :rotfl2: )

    Since we were going through the fastpass line, we didn't get to do the interactions, but it looked fun!

    Squinchy-eyes. It was bright! And hot!

    We headed back toward the front, as we decided to leave the park for a while:

    First time ever in this picture spot!

    [​IMG]



    We left MK, and went to DTD for lunch, at Earl of Sandwich....again!!!
    DD fell in love with this place! (But no pics again, either! :sad1: )

    We then went back to the room for a little rest.




    Continuing....

    As we came back to MK, we went for pics with the Princesses, with a 10 minute wait!


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Cinderella was there, too, but DD said she looked "weird" and didn't want a pic with her, so we "snuck" out the door quickly past her.
    It was pretty funny... :lmao:





    Another pic by the castle..

    [​IMG]


    Dole Whip time again!

    Now, this is where I must have slacked off on my picture-taking, but at least I actually took good notes this time!!!

    We rode Pirates of the Caribbean, which was walk on.
    Then back to HM, with a 15 minute wait.
    Then to Space Mountain, with a 15 minute wait.
    Back to Monsters, Inc., with a 10 minute wait.
    Then on to the People Mover.


    And for dinner, at the Starlight Cafe:

    [​IMG]



    We watched the Magic, Memories, and You show. (I LOVE this!!)
    I actually recorded some of it on my camera, but photobucket is uploading sooooo slow. Hopefully I can get it posted soon as I can get it uploaded.


    And a couple pics on the way out:

    Coming up: Epcot and the Disney Y.E.S. Program!!!

    :cheer2:
