    I love the thrill of rides. My ride pictures are usually very boring. I just sit and smile because I love them so much. Once I got a picture on Dinosaur that was pretty good. My nephew was petrified (he hates when I say that!); he was holding on to my arm and had his head tucked in pretty close. I was loving it, but I am a tad little bit jumpy, so when the dinosaur roared overhead for the picture, I jumped/ducked and screamed all at once. I’ll have to find that one and scan it! It was a good one. Now, Blanche on the other hand, she usually looks absolutely terrified and it’s hilarious.

    I wandered around a little bit more and decided to ride the Great Movie Ride. I hadn’t been on it in a few years, so I thought I would give it a go.

    Mary Poppin’s horse.

    Toy Story Midway Mania had too long of a wait for my liking. They really need single rider lines for it!

    So instead, it was Star Tours!

    [​IMG]
    DHS 64 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

    The wait said about 10 minutes, but it was less than that for sure.

    I loved what the sign said when I got off! I should have gone on again!

    I decided I was too tired to wait for the second Fantasmic, so I headed out to the bus area. I had gone over at some point earlier, a few minutes before the first showing of Fantasmic, just to see if I could get a seat, and I started walking up the pathway. When they started announcing it was “Standing room only” I turned around. I was not about to stand. I was too tired! I heard them say they were full to capacity before I totally left the area anyways.

    I’m sure I didn’t wait long for a bus and got back to the hotel in good time.

    July 19, 2012 Part 1: Main Street

    We got up and got ready, but decided to have our “cheapie” breakfast this morning. I had brought some flavoured oatmeal from home and some bowls. We brought our mugs and headed out to Riverside Mill to use the microwave.

    Here’s Blanche with our oatmeal. I liked it. Her, not so much. She’d rather plain oatmeal with some sugar.

    Sigh. I love Main Street and the little side streets. It just feels like Disney. I need a little Disney Main Street (with all the Disney stores too!) in my area to get a little Disney fix every once in a while.

    Great castle pics, I always come home with over 100 castle pictures.

    I've never been on any of the Disney thrill rides, but will this trip. You're pictures of RNRC and Tower of Terror made me nervous. Hopefully I'll be able to muster up the courage to ride them.

    Thanks! I love the castle. I'm sure I have tons more, but I did try not to post them all. There will be more show up later.

    Oh, please go on RNRC and TOT. They are really great. Have you even just walked through the queues? They are so fun!!! Tower of terror is really just the drops, and I love them. RNRC reminds me of Space Mountain in that you can't see anything. Have you done that one?

    Part 3: Tomorrowland (okay, it’s mostly Cinderella Castle)

    We decided to head to whichever Tomorrowland ride we got to that had a short wait. The first ride of the day was Stitch! I have the Four Parks, One World cd, and when the Intergalactic Anthem comes on, I get a Walt Disney World feel. I was so excited to hear it again. I know the ride is not the greatest, but it’s still a Disney ride and I love all Disney rides… almost.

    Stitch 3 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

    Before this guy oiled himself, he told me to put away my camera. I seriously don’t understand why. It’s like Carousel of Progress. Why do they tell me not to take pictures? Because if they tell me not to, I won’t, but if they don’t, I will!

    [​IMG]
    Stitch 4 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr 
    After Stitch, we decided we were kind of hungry. And we’d been hearing WONDERFUL things about the cinnamon buns from Main Street Bakery. So we thought we’d head towards there.

    I snapped a picture (or a few more, but I’m only sharing one here) of Merida. We had just seen it at the Drive in, with my sister, (so all three Golden Girls), plus one 17 year old nephew, a 12 year old niece, a 10 year old niece, and two 5 year old nieces. After a bit, my nephew took the two older girls to the front outside so they could see better. A van is not the most conducive for drive ins. I will be buying that one, I loved it! I also loved when one five year old told the other (SPOILER) “It’s okay, the mom is gonna be the mom again and not the bear at the end. I didn’t know that before now, but I do now. If you’re scared, you can hold my hand.” It was so cute. And to think, she’s the one that used to be terrified of EVERYTHING.

    [​IMG]
    Merida by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

    We had to pass by the castle again, so I had to take more pictures.

    I think I’ll take my camera bag off next time so I don’t look like I’ve got a baby bump!

    MK 43 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

    So we went around the corner and sat in that area down the stairs/ramp. You know what I mean. Is it outside the Plaza? And the ice cream parlor?

    Of course, you know what I did, since I could see the castle again.

    We split a snack credit. And we got tap water to drink. It was the only time we got tap water that it was gross. I think they usually got it from the fountain beverage machines, but this time they got it from the tap. I forced myself to drink some. EW!

    Playing with my settings to get different shots of the castle. This was nice, Blanche could sit and put her BOOTLESS foot up and I could take pictures! Some of these are quite similar, but I like them all… LOL

    We went towards Tomorrowland to head for Space Mountain next. We love any ride, as I’ve said before, and I think this ride had been redone a little bit since we’d last been on it, so we were excited to try it.

    Space Cowboys, Chip and Dale!

    Blanche’s stinky fish. She said it was really good. I like lobster and scallops, but that’s about it. I’m not a big fish eater. I think I like haddock sometimes too, with lots of fattening tartar sauce so that doesn’t really count.

    My normally delicious chicken nuggets. I think I got the bottom of the barrel, they didn’t seem fresh this time.

    Every time we ate at Riverside Mill, we’d choose the same table, except for once or twice when some unknowledgeable family took our spot. So we’d sit a table or so over. We liked to sit near all the gears where there were lots of windows.

    This was our view.

    We decided to let our food settle before getting our desert, so we went in to the shop for a little bit. I love Disney stores. I didn’t do much shopping this trip, but I loved the little store and the CMs were always so friendly. Actually, I think I left Blanche there and I went off on my own. I can’t remember if I was trying to be sneaky or something, or just look for something in particular, but I went off and I think I told her I went to the bathroom but I went to the store.

    For some reason I found my camera bag uncomfortable. This was my first trip with my Canon 60D, and it is a little heavier than my old camera, but I had sold my G11 (a smaller camera) and my little flip video camera, so you’d think it would be lighter. But I also had the newest lens I’d bought, which I guess is heavier than my kit lens that I’d sold with my T1i. Still, I found it heavy, so I was looking for a bag to buy so I could carry some things in it and still be more comfortable. I wasn’t sure if I wanted a backpack or not, but I was looking at the bags. Here are some I was thinking about buying (not necessarily to carry things at WDW though!)

    When in July were you there? It was lovely, and I was glad we took lots of breaks!

    It was really good, but I don't think I could eat a whole one! oh, who am I kidding? I probably could!!! :rotfl2:

    Part 6: Back to DHS

    Blanche’s yummy milkshake.

    My yummy apple pie! I thought it came with ice cream, but it didn’t… or at least not then.

    I have a picture of Blanche eating some carrot cake. She really enjoys certain foods and, well, she makes a special face when she enjoys them. I tried to show her what it was.

    I didn’t succeed, but I tried to show her!

    Then back to the shop. I tried on a hat. What do you think? Should I buy it on my next trip?

    I went back to DHS and Blanche was to meet up with me later. She wanted a longer break.

    Where did I head first? Of course, to a corner of the park with some thrill rides!

    I love trying to get different angles of things… well, different as in, “Did I get a shot like this before?” Not necessarily as in, “Did anyone ever do a shot like this before?”

    These were very welcome… even by me, the cold wimp! It was not cold. It was July, and I was in WDW, so I was hot and happy!

    Part 7: The wait is on and some DHS wanderings

    The plan was for Blanche to meet up with me at a certain time and we’d go for supper somewhere, so I started taking pictures of menus so we’d know where to go!

    I need to spend more time watching the Streetmosphere cast members. I really do. The few times I’ve stopped and watched them or interacted with them, they’ve been absolutely hilarious.

    I got a video, but it wasn’t of the funniest parts. I should have thought earlier…

    Video link

    This is my first ever video post on the Dis! Yay! Only I can't figure out how to do it right... LOL And yay for my Canon 60D that takes great pictures and video. It’s better directly on the computer than on flickr, but that’s okay, you’ll get the idea. And sorry about the snap of the picture in the middle of the video, I was trying to figure out if it was actually recording!

    I decided to wait for Blanche near the entrance to the park. I sat on a bench on a side street for a bit, but then there was a big monster of a stinging insect nearby so I moved over closer to the entrance. I sat and leaned on a palm tree for a bit and then beside it when it started hurting my back and letting crawling insects all over me.

    Blanche and I had both purchased an expensive, but useful long distance package on our cell phones that included texting, especially for moments like this, when we were trying to meet up at the parks!

    Part 8: We see OURSELVES!

    Remember how we call ourselves the Golden Girls? Well… here is Blanche and Rose!

    And Blanche and Dorothy.

    And here is Dorothy (me) with Dorothy! So of course, I’m doing something silly! Don’t you love my shoes though? They’re so comfy!!!

    And here I am with Rose… Rose is my sister and she is a pain, always looking for something. I love her, and she’s one of the GGs, but I want to strangle her sometimes (not really!), so here I am!

    Unfortunately, I forgot the cash, so I tried to break her out and got stuck in jail instead!

    Part 9: Supper!

    We decided on Backlot Express. I ate there with my nephew in 2007, so I try to eat there at least once a trip in memory of eating there with him. I wonder if we’ll eat there again when we go again?

    We decided to share a sandwich. We got the grilled turkey and cheese. I think I bought my own dessert and drink and we shared the sandwich, she got the drink and the dessert on one meal credit.

    We were happy for the carrots for once and a healthy sandwich, and we both loved our desserts. I was a good girl and got water to drink. It was a lovely meal.

    We stayed in the unfinished area. I loved it. Here are some pictures of the room.

    Welcome, Mike!

    I just answered this question on my DL TR, but in case others are curious, I can tell you here too. ;)

    Canon 60D is my lovely new camera. I have a Sigma 10-20 mm lens, a Sigma 30 mm f/1.4, Canon 70-200 f/4 and a Canon 17-55 f/2.8 (Recommended by many on the photography board.)

    Thanks! It was a lovely trip. I just want to go back now! :) It's quite an addictive vacation destination to me.
