    Hahaha but seriously. That could get a bit iffy.
    I agree, they're awesome! :thumbsup2
    Haha Mother knows best! :rotfl:
    :rotfl2: I would expect nothing less.
    Hahaha let's not even talk about quesadillas... I'm in love with them. Seriously... every time I heard the word I just want them!! So good.
    Yay! That's coming up veryyyy soon!

    Oh I know. Kristen and I quote her CONSTANTLY. I love her.
    Yeah, unpacking early is great. It makes me feel like I just get to live there. So yay.
    And yes, that is a plus! I hope they were nice shirts :rotfl:
    I know I'm a fast eater too. I need to learn how to pace myself but it's a lot easier said than done!

    Hahaha probably because we're vacation club girls :rotfl:
    Yeah... I suppose so. I probably wouldn't be too fond of that place. :lmao:
    Thank you, thank you. I like the room too!
    I love Stace!!
    Yummm I know... I'm hungry. :laughing:
    Yay! Coming soon! :wizard:

    Thank you! Oh no, does that happen? :( I'm sorry! I don't know how to fix it... it works on my computer. Ugh I wish that didn't happen!
    Thanks for reading anyway! :wizard:

    Chapter 4: Mission - Surprise the Frump!
    August 19th, 2011

    Alright, it was time to put our plan into action. We have been waiting for this moment for months now, and this was IT!

    We caught the Magic Kingdom bus at the El Centro bus stop. The bus was there so we ran right on and we were on our way!

    [​IMG]

    Kristen had dinner at Ohana that night at 5 pm. However, her meal took a very long time, so she ended up just arriving at Magic Kingdom just a little bit before we got there.

    Once we got on the bus, I texted Kristen's Mom and told her we were coming!

    We arrived at the Magic Kingdom, but we didn't know exactly where to go because we had to wait for a text response. We had to be VERY discreet. Especially because we were near the monorail.... you never know! She could be it at any time. We had to hide, just to make sure we were safe.

    After waiting a few minutes before entering the Magic Kingdom, we got our text back from Sue and we headed in!

    We went straight to the Town Square Meet and Greet building.... and it was CROWDED.

    As you remember from my Pre-Trip Report, we wanted to surprise Kristen by being in the room with Mickey Mouse when she walked in there. However, I kind of forgot to take into account that the lines might be long... and of course, that's what ended up happening.

    Shoot. Okay, so it was time for Plan B. We didn't have a Plan B. So we had to make it up.

    The good thing about the Town Square building is that it's just this big, open, indoor room. Since it was dark out, we wanted to be somewhere where we could film the surprise. So we decided, let's just stay in here and have them pretend to go meet Mickey... but really, they'd be coming to meet us!

    We found a cast member (I think his name was Steve?) and we asked him if he would video tape us.

    "Umm... hi. Our friend is on vacation with her family, and she has no idea we're here right now. Do you think you could do us a favor and video tape her reaction? She might scream... just so you know. But we'd really appreciate it!"

    He was slightly confused, but he said yes. He also said that he wasn't very good at video taping (just what I need when I'm making a movie out of this thing hahaha) but he did a good job. And he was cute! So that was just a lovely bonus.

    Meanwhile, Kristen's Mom directed the family into the Emporium and so they could "shop for a while." While browsing around, she told Kristen and Sarah that she wanted to go check out the new Mickey Mouse greeting area.

    Kristen, of course, didn't want to go. She was wearing a poncho, her hair was in a frump, and she was not in the mood to take pictures. Sarah agreed with her. I had a feeling that sort of thing would happen.

    Sue just told them, "let's go!" Kristen really didn't want to, so she tried to walk in the other direction. However, her Mom wouldn't stop going towards Town Square. Kristen had an idea that something was up, but she didn't want to get her heart set on anything because she thought that her mind was just playing tricks on her.

    Kristen finally gave in and followed her Mom, and from across the street, she saw a girl who looked like me with long dark brown hair, wearing a lime green t-shirt and a white headband... which is a similar outfit of what I wear to work.

    She thought... "no, it can't be."

    She saw another girl standing next to the girl who looked like me, and she thought it was my Mom. But she thought "no, that's too short to be her!"

    So she kept walking... and she went faster and faster because she really thought that she saw us!

    It really clicked in her mind so she started running and once she saw us... she just SCREAMED!! She ran up and gave us HUGE hugs (I thought I was going to be knocked over!) and said "oh my God, oh my God, oh my GOD!" about a million times.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Kristen was SO incredibly surprised, she really had no idea. (I mean, who is crazy enough to do something like that, anyway!?)

    [​IMG]

    She was so overwhelmed, she just had to sit down. I would have, too! That's like a GIANT shock!

    We were all SO excited, and we were SO happy that it actually worked! She had no idea, but everything started clicking once we were there. All of these random things we said or did over the summer finally made sense!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Kristen asked us where we were staying, what floor we were on, where we were eating, etc. It was SUPER exciting... literally, 10 minutes before she had no idea this sort of wrench was going to be thrown into her vacation!

    [​IMG]

    She thought that it was a dream... nope, it was real life! WE'RE IN DISNEY! TOGETHER! AHHHHH!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So overall, I have to say that Mission: Surprise the Frump was a complete success! Kristen was absolutely oblivious to the whole thing, and thanks to my sneaky planning skills, we actually pulled it off. Best surprise EVER!

    [​IMG]

    Thank you Mother, for all of your help!

    [​IMG]

    We left the building and the Main Street Electrical Parade was just beginning!

    We stood around so we could watch it. However, we were so excited that we couldn't stop talking! The poor people in front of us probably wanted to hit us upside the heads! But hey, we just went through a major ordeal over here! Please excuse the frumps.

    Also, watching the parade this time made me realize how much I miss SpectroMagic. Oh my GOD, how I miss it. Honestly, the Main Street Electrical Parade is okay, but it's really not that entertaining. The music just plays over and over and over... and the characters barely talk... and it's just not one of my favorites. I hope they don't keep it up for long, because Spectro (or something comparable to it) needs to come back.

    I got a couple good pictures, though, and it was a great way to begin our trip together!

    TIME FOR A BRIEF ASIDE

    AS you know, if you read the January Trip Report, I like to edit videos of some of my Disney Trips. And this trip was completely documented on video!

    For the January Trip, it took me SO LONG to make the movies I think because I was using Live Movie Maker. (and that freezes SO much) I just started using iMovie, and I am ZOOMING through this project!

    So basically, I'm definitely going to be done with it way before the trip report is over!

    I decided that I'm going to post clips of the video throughout the trip report when I finish off certain sections. Just look for the links! I'll post them in pink. You can either watch them as you go, or watch them all at once after the Trip Report is over.

    *And a warning.... it is EXTREMELY frumpy and we were very overtired... so be prepared.*

    I posted everything that I recored thus far, ending with the surprise video, so you can see the actual reaction! I hope you enjoy!

    Kristen and Allie - I really don't want to miss your reactions!! So if you can, either wait until you see me to watch these, or call me before you watch them!!

    Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLcJbQWxnOw

    (this one has been giving me an INCREDIBLE amount of trouble uploading... aka every time I tried to do it, iMovie would "unexpectedly close." so i had to copy and paste the clips into a new file... so there's no subtitles. sorry about that! but i do not have the time or motivation to fix it right now.)

    Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTmwNlQxqxo

    Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiubEDPQVzg

    Part 4: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rU6EiuJ9Qc

    ^^That's the surprise one!!

    I'm also going to put these in the Table of Contents, so you can always check there if you want to watch them again!
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Alright so, basically.... THE FRUMPS WERE BACK IN DISNEY! The surprise was a success! And we were ready to go!!

    [​IMG]

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    P.S. Some OTHER great news is that we JUST extended our Christmas Vacation - we're going three days earlier now!!!! :banana: I am SO excited. We're staying off property at this resort in Celebration - does anyone know if there's anything we should check out in Celebration? We're going to be there during the holidays so I didn't know if anything was going on.

    OMG! Most awesome surprise video ever! I love it! I could already sense you and Nat's excitement from just looking at the pictures, but it's even more contagious in the videos. And Kristen! I love her reaction. Perfect!

    Like Allie, I couldn't help but notice the stern looking woman between your excited faces. Hahaha

    I love Disney music, but the MSEP music is so repetitive it just annoys me. Please bring back Spectro, okay? Thanks.

    Thank you! Haha oh yeah, i get all pumped up when I watch those videos! We are seriously freaking out haha. And Kristen's reaction was perfect!
    Hahaha that woman cracks me up :lmao:
    I agree.... Spectro needs to return.

    Thank you very much!!

    Thank you! We had such a good time! Yeah, I love seeing a visual of what I read... it's like a book turned into a movie kind of deal :laughing: Yeah, that was the perfect reaction! It was awesome. Thank you! YAY I'm so excited about extending it... ahhhh! I'm still freakin out. Only 84 days to go! And yes, we are visiting Disney on those days! I already made some reservations!

    Thank you! hahaha my Mom was convinced she was going to faint when we surprised her :rotfl: But she sat down. That's close enough!
    LOL I know... it's so funny! It was such a great surprise!

    Thank you! And me too! We'll definitely remember that forever!

    Hahaha Disney Radar. I think we both have it. How frumpy.
    You should feel loved!!! I was so happy we all got to be in disney together... it wouldn't have been a party without ya!

    Thank you!
    Haha I'm glad you enjoy them!! And oh thank you lol.
    YAYYYYYYYYYYYY I'm really excited. You have no idea. I was jumping around my room last night... my roommate was probably scared. Haha oh yeah... but literally, the minute you're ready, we're seriously moving to Florida and working in Disney. I don't even care.

    Aww! Is it sad that I teared up when the surprise happened? :laughing: What a great moment! That is so sweet that you girls did that for your bestfriend. I love it! The videos were great; thanks for sharing.

    Can't wait for more. And, so happy for you that your Dec. trip is extended. Isn't that always the best? I've never been to Celebration before. Are you staying at a house or a hotel? If you have a car maybe you should check out the Disney outlet. Just an idea; never been there before. But who doesn't love good deals on Disney things!!!
