    Looks like a great MK day so far! I love the video of the opening show. I have never seen one of the Dapper Dans be the greeter-we've usually had the mayor or Scoop Sanderson, the news reporter guy. So fun! Your video got me excited for when we're there Saturday morning! :banana:

    haha, I do too. :)

    Subbing! How neat that you traveled with friends!

    I love the MK Opening. Wouldn't it be neat to be Family of the Day just once?

    I love the Mk parades. My family likes the afternoon swim so I always miss that one. Love your pictures!

    Alright, you got me curious. Did you get upgraded to the Poly mid stay?

    We were surprised to see the pp photographer on the island, I have never seen one there before

    The Poly?!?!? I wish... that would be a dream come true :love:

    All caught up and loving every second :)

    Love the opening show at MK, always puts a smile on your face.

    Breakfast with Stitch and friends looked like fun and how good is that pineapple bread! :teeth:

    Bless Emma, she was a trooper on SM and wonderful that she loves it now. Such a fun ride and the song is too cute :)

    Guys I am so sorry our meet fell through. I felt so bad, my phone was being a nuisance throughout the whole trip, dying in the space of 1hr if I left the network connected (no idea why, but it got super hot all the time). Being the dumma that I was I had forgotten to key in Tracy's number and had no way of getting it off of Facebook. I did try to look out for you guys when we got to MK, but no luck.

    Tracy thank you so much for your awesome gift, it is so awesome and so thoughtful of you guys :hug:

    Next time we are at Disney and our trips crossover we are meeting up for sure :teeth:

    Your welcome! It was fun finding it for you... :goodvibes A little unorthodox in how it got to you but I was glad when I got your message!

    Absolutely we'll make a future DIS meet work. :wizard:


    :rotfl2: :rotfl2: :rotfl2: Jack certainly does love his women fighting over him!

    Demetri was having a blast on TSI, Ariana and I not so much besides the barrel bridge. We'll have to go again when I have a second set of eyes to keep track of both kiddos at the same time. Natalie walked thru the cave with him since I was afraid I'd lose Ariana. :rolleyes:

    Was way behind, but I'm all caught up and loving your TR. Looks like you all have had a splendid trip so far from leaving for the airport through to your time in MK. Love the pictures and I am now officially convinced to try Ohana's next trip. Can't wait to read whats next

    I’m just a little black rain cloud…..


    We thought we might be able to finish the FantasyLand rides before MSEP but I was doubtful. First was Peter Pan’s Flight - I never get any good pics on this ride.


    I was in a ship by myself and snuck in a quick flash picture, one of Ariana’s favourite scenes. (shhhh!)


    [​IMG]


    Next was It’s a Small World… now this is the first time I have gone on this ride since I read Kingdom Keepers and let me tell you I was more than a little freaked out on this ride. I will never see this ride the same again :scared1:

    I have so many pictures of this ride that I wasn’t taking very many this time around. Ariana would have none of that and started to point out the pictures she wanted me to take. No problem! Some were a little off because she’d wait until the last second to tell me but here’s a few of what she picked.

    And more cuteness from Demetri and Emma.... check out the protective arm around her back as they sit together. :goodvibes


    [​IMG]


    The clock says 6:15 and we still had to get mine and Tracy’s ears for our MNSSHP costumes and get a spot for the parade….. I am getting nervous. I said to Tracy there is no way we are going to get hats and a spot if we do anymore rides so we decide to leave the rest of FantasyLand for our next MK day and we head down a very crowded Main St to the Chapeau Shop.


    Continued in next post……..

    I ordered my hats (one for me and one for my Goddaughter Claire) and then I told Tracy I was going to make my way outside to look for a parade watching spot.


    It was pretty crowded already but I got a spot in the hub right outside the confectionary. It was an ok spot to watch.


    I ordered ears for myself and we picked out new ones for the kids, and then joined Natalie outside to wait. I really liked our spot and I loved the few pictures I got of the parade heading up Main Street towards the Castle.


    Before the parade started I snapped a couple pics of the decorations. Was there any doubt that I did too?

    I also snapped a pic of the Fire Station.

    This was what the clouds looked like and it was kinda creepy. Very fitting!

    Just after going back to get our now finished ears, the Main St Electrical Parade stated. I personally love this parade. I know there are lots of people who love Spectro more and I don’t really have an opinion on which one I like more I just try to enjoy the one that is available at the time.


    I confess I do prefer Spectro Magic but I do love this parade too. I can’t help but dance along and it makes for great pictures if you can get them. This was the point of the day that I finally figured out which button to push to get my camera display working again and I LOVE the pictures with the Castle in the background. :cloud9:

    After it was over the sky looked really bad and we were seeing lightning and hearing thunder so we decided it was not really worth sticking around for Wishes and getting stuck in a storm so we high tailed it out of there and to the bus stop.


    It sucked not staying for Wishes, but we had other chances to see it later in the week and leaving early meant not only missing a potential downpour, it meant beating the crowds too. Ariana however, was not happy at all with this decision and let us know pretty much the entire bus ride back to Pop that she thought so. A shot taken earlier in the day but fitting at this point....


    [​IMG]


    We made it back to Pop before the storm and the sky seemed to be easing up a little. The kids really wanted to swim (me too :) me three!) so we gave in and went for a swim.

    Well..... did I????[FONT=&quot][/FONT]

    Great installments!!! I haven't read the Kingdom Keepers... yet. It is on my list of things to do.

    I love the picture of Demetri with his arm around Emma, how freaking cute is that??? Watch out they look like they are on a date :eek:.

    Great spot for MSEP, I love the pictures with the castle in the background. I would have left too if it looked like it was going to pour rain.

    I say Tracy made it the next morning, I believe in her :goodvibes. She has a great name :rotfl:.

    Hahaha, no one looks at It's a Small World the same way after Kingdom Keepers! I don't think I even look at the entire park the same way either.

    P.S. Wayne lives in the Fire House.

    Great MSEP pictures! Sorry that you didn't get to stay for Wishes. But swimming is always a good thing too.

    Wow - when you two do an update, you really do an update! :thumbsup2 Looks like you had a great spot for the parade to me. I've never seen it from Main Street. We usually go to Liberty Square or Frontierland.

    Loving all the pics. That was a great spot for MSEP, I too loved the pics with the castle in the background. Good idea to make a break for it with a potential storm brewing.

    I too vote that Tracy makes RD again! :thumbsup2
