    Hey Leesa, all caught up now. Loved your brothers story :rotfl2: :rotfl2:

    I have a question going waaay back to Pixie hollow. You said you were shrunk? what exactly do you mean? Because I read about being shrunk and I guess I was expecting something more magical but when we went the CM just said "go stand over there" :confused:
    Did we miss something?

    No problem, hopefully you get to go on that cruise someday. :thumbsup2

    :thumbsup2


    Okay well you have to pay attention to the detailing in the hallway they take you into while you wait. As you go down the hallway towards Pixie Hollow you will notice that the forest/garden decorations on the wall get bigger and bigger like you are "shrinking" so by the time you get into Pixie Hollow the mushrooms and flowers depicted on the walls would be as big as you because you are now "pixie" sized. So it is not something that the cast members do but more something you have to take in my observing the detailing.

    Beautiful photos Lessa and I'm glad that I've been running through the Norway film it sounds boring :rotfl:

    Our bakeries sell cream horns, look just like the Norway one and the pastry is delicious :goodvibes

    I think it was the flavourful berry cream that did me in, so good!

    Thanks so much for explaining that to me. I feel kinda sheepish now :laughing: After reading so many people say they were shrunk down to see the fairies I was expecting something *more* if you kwim.

    :rotfl: Yeah it is definitely a detail that can be easily overlooked.

    After I nearly died and went to heaven from eating the scrumptious Cloudberry Horn we made our way over to China.

    [​IMG]

    A couple stopped me and asked me to take their picture so of course I obliged. :cutie:

    As we were entering the pavilion I saw Mulan! I was excited as I had never seen her in the parks before. So of course I had to get my picture taken with her! Mom decided to join me for the picture.

    We saw this very cool water dragon so of course I took a bunch of pictures!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I think the China pavilion is so pretty, well all of them are pretty really but I just love the ones that have gardens and ponds laid out.

    We went into the Temple briefly and took in the Warrior exhibit

    [​IMG]

    Briefly considered staying to see the China movie as we had enjoyed it the previous year but we decided to take advantage of the nice weather and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible!

    They had a play area with Captain Hook and the crocodile all set-up between the African Outpost and Germany.

    Snow White was out for pictures but her line had just been cut-off and the character handler said she would not be back for an hour, well we would be long gone by then, bummer.

    It was getting really hot now and my feet were killing me so while Mom wandered the shops and took pictures I went and got myself a soft pretzel and found myself a bench in the shade to relax on.

    [​IMG]

    The pretzel was really good, not overly salted like they usually are. It was just perfect!

    Mom found me eventually and she bought a refreshing drink. It tasted like frozen lemonade but with alcohol! I have no idea what it is called.

    [​IMG]

    Here are some of Mom's pictures from Germany

    LOVE your pics!! I didn't get any from Germany due to the rain and the ones I got from China were only inside the temple. What time was this? Must have been before the rain started!

    Seems I had not seen the update about the cloudberry. How is that possible??

    What is a cloudberry made of?

    Yay! You saw my girl Mulan.

    But it seems my boyfriend, Mushu, was on a break.

    :confused3 It's back on page 55. A cloudberry is well a berry! It is delicious! And the cloudberry horn is a pastry filled with a sweet cream made from cloudberries. :rotfl:


    I would have loved to see Mushu! :guilty: I have a little bean toy Mushu that I got back when the movie first came out and if you smack him down on your hand he will say one of three of four lines from the movie. :rotfl:

    Awe. I've been looking for a Mushu toy for so long.

    Maybe I'll get lucky one day :)

    That is one odd looking couple!! :thumbsup2

    Love the pic of captian hook and the croc. The croc looks like he's had one too many with his tongue hanging out like that. :rotfl:
