I love all the castle pictures. There's nothing like seeing the castle all lit up at night. Beautiful!
Your pictures of the castle up close are simply amazing!
Staying up in the park until 3am is hard!!
Hahaha, I'm sorry, I totally laughed at the Tiki Room thing. Matt grew up LOVING it, but hasn't insisted that we go see it yet. Maybe when we go again and we want some AC? But that didn't sound like a ton of fun! You were nice and probably wise not to rub it in Brandon's face though, hahaha.
I've never seen Pirates closed either! That is a mega bummer, it's one of my favorites to go on at night! Which I know sounds weird since it's indoors but I love MK at night plus Adventureland, so basically it's just fun.
PEOPLEMOVER! I've always loved this one a lot but on our recent trip I wanted to ride it over and over again! Seriously. It's just got everything.
Haha I'm sorry about Buzz! I love that one, too! Matt is meh about it, but rides it because I always want to. I just love shooting the laser, though half the time I do bad, then sometimes I'll randomly hit one of the 100,000 targets and do well! I need to do some studying of those targets before our next trip!
Winnie the Pooh is one of my favorites ever.
I love the castle all lit up. It's so beautiful and perfect!
OH THAT ICE CREAM SANDWICH!! When I read it just now on your TR, I told Matt we need to get that next trip since MSB will be open again!
Sometimes you just hit a wall and your plans to stay late don't work about, but midnight is darn good! We've never gone when the parks are open later, so I've only ever stayed til like... 9 or 10, hahaha. But there is nothing worse than when your feet are just HURTING and all you want is to be back in your room and not walk anymore.
I need to see what time we actually left on my photo time stamps, but it was awful in tomorrowland and we gave up. I think in the first hour. I know I wasn't feeling well too, so maybe that magnified the crowds in my mind.
I don't get it, what's so bad about the Tiki Room? I've never done it but I've never heard anything bad about it either.
Omg I totally get your fear of losing things on Space! I always hold onto my bag for dear life because of course it's too big to fit into the tiny little bag holder!
I LOVE the closeup castle shots!!! THOSE LIGHTS.
Aww, Tiki Room prison? It's not one of my favorite attractions (we hardly ever do it) but I kind of enjoyed seeing it last year.
That ice cream sandwich looks really good!
And I love the dream lights pictures. I swear, if we end up having to cancel our December trip again I think I will cry because I need to see those lights again!
Your MK EMH night looks like so much fun! The castle is so pretty all lit up!
Hahaha I don't get how people are good at Buzz either! I can never figure out which little dot is mine too .
Tiki Room prison! I actually don't mind it quite as much now because Paxton gets a kick out of the singing birds, but when it was just DH and I going I would give him the stink eye every time he got me to go in there with him.
Pirates closed! What a travesty! Was it not up and running for EMH or was it a breakdown?
Ohhh those ice cream cookie sandwiches are to die for! Had my first one a few trips ago and it is such a heavenly snack in MK! We went for an ice cream sundae last time, but I'll have to go back for one of those this upcoming trip.
Well, you might not have made it to 3am, but you sure had a nice evening (well, except for the crappy coffee). And you got some awesome pictures of the castle.
How many more weeks until you return? I have to check your ticker, but I am officially jealous because I need a vacation SO bad right now.
I will miss the Main Street Bakery too. Those ice cream cookies will likely be a thing of the past.
Oh wait - one of the tricks to Buzz is just to hold the button down continuously. Don't let up. It will continue to fire repeatedly. JUst move the gun around and aim.
Thanks! MK EMH are always so much fun! We always get really tired and never end up staying very long, so i was impressed with us staying until after 1am this time!
I love that cookie sandwich, it's just so yummy! I'm glad there are other places to get one now, but I'll miss it at the Main Street Bakery!
Ugh, the Tiki room was so awful! I mean, it's Disney, so I feel bad not liking it, but it's just so annoying! The Peoplemover is the best!
Yay I'm glad you like the Christmas light pics! I thought maybe I was overdoing it a bit!
Me too!!! I love the Peoplemover SO much, I could spend hours on there! And then you're right, the next few hours on Soarin'! Perfect!
Haha, oh no, I didn't know that was why Pirates was closed! Sorry Mark! I did feel really bad for that show (I'm weird, I feel bad for unpopular attractions) when I was sitting there, being tortured by the awful songs! I suppose I can see how it would be a nice place to escape the heat in the summer for a little while!
Yes, parties are usually an awesome time to get a lot done! The party we went to was sold out, but we still did a lot of things that night! It was so different from being at a sold out MNSSHP!
Thank you! It is really the most perfect time of year to go to Disney, just to see the Castle lit up!
Thank you! I was directly under the castle for most of those shots, and Brandon was just standing there, bored out of his mind, then I look over and I see another couple doing the same thing! A girl taking tons of up close pics of the castle, and her boyfriend/DH just standing around, waiting for her!
I could have stayed til 3am if my feet didn't hurt so much! And if we didn't have to get up early the next day! Oh well, I'm sure I'll do it someday! Whenever I take my solo trip in the summer and the parks are open late!
Haha, yeah, you might have to stop in there in September, because it's going to be HOT! It's just so annoying! I feel bad though, because it is a classic, but gosh, is it ever annoying!
I love going on Pirates at night too! And the Haunted Mansion! And I don't know why, because they are indoors...maybe because it seems more realistic if you leave the ride and it's dark outside? I don't know! I was sad that it was closed, but we ended up riding it later in the trip!
The Peoplemover is the best!!! I just love sitting back and looking at the whole park and hearing those wonderful Tomorrowland sounds! I am so in love with Tomorrowland, it's insane!
I like how the Buzz ride looks, it's all neon and crazy in there, but I just cannot figure out what I'm doing!
Mine too! I always get so sad when Winnie the Pooh has a long wait time, because I love it so much!
The castle lit up is beautiful and perfect, isn't it!!! I love it! I cannot wait to go back for Christmas, if that's even going to happen! I really feel like Brandon might insist on a Food and Wine trip, then who knows, maybe I'll have to go on a little solo adventure in December!
YES you guys have to get the ice cream sandwich! I thought I read that it won't be at the MSB once it becomes Starbucks, but I think you can get it at the Plaza? I don't know, I can't keep up with all of these changes!
I wish we could have stayed til the end, but it just didn't work out! My feet were killing me! How did you end up doing with that during your trip? I know we talked about this before, and we both have similar problems! Did you use that soap you bought to soak your feet? I need all the tips I can get, since I'm going in 9 days!
Oh, and I've been keeping up with your DLR TR, I just haven't had a chance to comment! I have to say though, I LOVE your pictures of the castle, with all of the decorations on it! I wish they put garland and stuff on Cinderella Castle too, it just looks so festive!
Ohhh, see, we went the opposite way, maybe all the crowds went to Tomorrowland? I didn't think the crowds were bad at all! I mean, during Wishes they were awful, but they thinned out right after! And yeah, if you're not feeling well, the crowds definitely seem much worse!
Haha, it's not that there is anything bad about the Tiki Room, it's just really annoying! It's just a bunch of birds singing! And you feel like it will never end! I do feel bad for it though, it's a classic, and well...it's just very dated!
I know, so do I!! I actually wrap the strap of my bad around my leg, and then tightly around my wrist so I know it's not going anywhere! I never trust those bag holders, I feel like everything will just fly out of there!
Thanks! So do I! Someday I'll go on a solo trip during Christmas and just spend hours gazing at the Castle! Brandon gets bored within minutes!
Haha, well maybe that was a little harsh, but it seemed like it went on forever!
It is SO good, you have to try one!
Ohh, I hope you don't have to cancel your December trip! I can't imagine not seeing the dream lights every year, we've gone 4 years in a row now, and it's become part of something I look forward to every year! I hope we get to go this year!
Thanks, it was a lot of fun! Isn't it beautiful? I love it so much!
I know, Buzz is so frustrating! I know there are ways to cheat, but if I can't figure out which dot is mine, why does it matter if I know where the targets are or not?!!
I'm sure I could deal with the Tiki room if I had a kid and they liked it, but for now, I think we can skip it! It's just so long and annoying!
I know!!! I have no idea why it was closed, it's usually open for EMH!
Aren't those ice cream sandwiches amazing? I don't know why they are so good, they are so simple, yet they're so amazing! The ice cream is just so good, and I'm not really a fan of vanilla ice cream! Sundaes are always good too!
We did have a great night! Thanks, I just love the castle with the lights!
9 DAYS until I go back! I can't wait!!! Don't worry, you will be going back soon right? In June? Then I'll be jealous because I have to wait until December to go back! IF that even happens!
I think they are still going to have those ice cream sandwiches, but they will be a the Plaza now. I could be wrong though, I thought I read that somewhere!
Oh really? Thanks, I'll have to try that sometime!
Nighttime EMH at MK is the best, and it's even better during the holidays. Your photos of the Castle made me wish I were there with the Dream Lights on! You can never have too many photos of the castle lit up like that.
Sorry you weren't able to make it until 3am, I know that was a goal of yours, but it sounds like you needed the rest. Disney can tire you out, and you still managed to do some favorites.
That ice cream sandwich looks so good!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Cali Grill!!!!
I can not wait to go back there someday and see all the changes/improvements!!!!!
I almost ALWAYS get the pork and polenta! It is heaven and delicious and AMAZING!!!!!
OMG that polenta is THE BEST!!!!
I LOVE your castle pictures!!!!!!
Makes me want to teleport to DisneyWorld RIGHT NOW!!!!
And FYI I am COMPLETELY JEALOUS you will be in WDW in around 9 days!!!!!!! You are going to have such a wonderful time!!!!!!
Our next trip is planned for this November 16-23. Our group will include 3 young girls (2, 5 & 9) who love to swim. Was the weather warm enough for swimming??
I want to eat at California Grill! It always looks so good but now it is closed. I am actually going to back to Disney in April with a Dis'er and we are staying at a Royal Guest Room. I am so stoked and looked at your Royal Room pictures again for entertainment
You can NEVER overdo Disney Christmas pictures.
