    Ahh welcome! What an honor! I'm so glad you posted!
    Thank you so much for reading all of our TR's :) that's awesome! Lurking is good.. I'm sure you've been learning a lot!
    1. Haha we probably would be! We automatically click with people who love Disney. It's just wonderful to find people who "get it."
    2. I love Tiana! I'm glad I changed my mind too haha. She's adorable. I wish they would make a few more solid movies like Princess and the Frog and Tangled, but I guess they're done with Princess movies :( And yeah I bet!! That's such a weird though LOL I have always thought about that.
    3. You comment wasn't too long DON'T WORRY! I have gotten some that were three times as long. :laughing: I'm glad you enjoyed reading and watching it all! I would love to hear more comments from you!
    And yay I'm glad you're inspired! I bet it'll be a great TR!​

    I've been on a DIS hiatus for awhile but now I'm back and all caught up on your TR!

    I absolutely LOVE those Disney pullovers from Forever 21. When I saw them online a few weeks ago I think I literally screamed out loud! haha I so want the Little Mermaid one but now it's not even on the site :(

    Your Buzz and Woody meet and greet story was so precious!! I love meeting those two, they are seriously some of the best characters to meet at Disney.

    I'm glad you got to see Fantasmic after so long too! That's seriously my favorite show at Disney. That stinks that the crowd didn't do the wave but :thumbsup2 for getting front and center seats!

    Can't wait to hear more!:)

    Thank you! It feels good to be out of lurkdom.
    And I mean, no need to thank me for reading! I love reading about people's Disney experiences, especially when they're so excited about it! I'm totally the same way. :goodvibes
    I love Disney people. I am completely stoked I found this board, I can relate to EVERYONE. It's amazing.
    I can't believe they're done with the princess movies. And they say little girls don't want to be princesses anymore? If that's true it makes me SO sad.
    Anyways, thanks for the welcome! It made my coming out of lurking a lot easier! Can't wait to read more!

    That's such a cute picture! I love the coloring. :)

    Mmmm...I love those! My mom loves them more than I do though, haha. I'm basically a water drinker too.

    Pretty pictures of the princesses!

    Hmm..I never could put my finger exactly on it but I think you're right. Fantasmic is very 90's! I loooove the pre-show music. :banana:

    Aww Pluto. That's really cute. :)

    Can't wait for your next update. :wizard:

    Woohoo! I'm so glad! I hope you enjoy! :)

    Aww welcome back!
    Aren't they SO CUTE!? I love them. Aww I know the dang little mermaid one was so weird! They had mediums at the actual store a couple weeks ago.. but not online. Originally they only had smalls, and then they had nothing!
    Aww thanks! They are some of the best characters! They're always so much fun!
    Thank you! I'm glad too! It's so beautiful!

    Haha I'm glad :thumbsup2
    Aww yay I'm so happy you're here!
    I love them too... I know, I totally feel like home here.
    Yeah... that's such a joke. Every girl wants to be a princess! Oh well. Might as well stick with the classics then, no need to add more..
    You're welcome! I'm glad you're enjoying!

    Thanks! Yeah, it was super dark so I had to lighten it lol
    They're yummy! Yeah... I only drink water too. It's the best!
    Thank you!
    Haha I agree!
    Thanks!

    That frozen lemonade looks amazing! And I love that Kristen kept the stroller tag, lol.

    I've never seen Fantasmic, but your pictures make it look so great!

    I feel like Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is evidence of that but... ok, whatever! :confused3 Haha... who knows what they were thinking. I agree though, the princess movies they've made are awesome, so, they might as well stop while they're ahead! Hopefully the movies they make are still good, I mean they've been on a roll lately!
    I really am enjoying reading and I'll be excited when the next chapter is up! Hope you have a great Halloween! :goodvibes

    I got it at Island Mercantile at Animal Kingdom in April :)

    It was yummy! And LOL I know. She would. :laughing:
    It's beautiful - I hope you get to see it sometime!

    AHHH That's so cute! :) Thank you! Happy Halloween to you as well!

    That's exactly what I was thinking. Oh well! All I know is that I have always and will always want to be a princess princess:
    Yeah I think that if they kept making them, it could be overkill. Too many princesses could be slightly overwhelming.
    Thank you! I hope I get to do one soon! And you too! Happy Halloween!​

    "It's Another HAlloween Here in the Fabulous 40's..."
    October 31st, 2011

    Oh wait, just kidding. It's 2011. I just like that part of Carousel of Progress hehe :-) And he said "hAlloween" just like Kristen. Accent on the A.

    I hope you all are having a spooktacular day! I, personally, am being lame and I'm being frump all night. No judgements please haha. I had to wake up early to go back to school this morning and I'm just so tired! I need to go to sleep LOL

    Anyways... I thought I'd share a couple halloween pictures with you all before the update to show you how I celebrated the holiday!

    I painted my nails last week perfectly themed for halloween - they're candy corn nails! They're super simple: just a stripe of yellow on the bottom, a stripe of orange, and then a stripe of white on top! Everyone thinks they're so cute haha.

    This past weekend I went with Vickie and Dan to visit our friends Kevin, Korl, Sam, and others at their college. We got to dress up, and Vick and I were cowgirls! On the second night, I was a cat and Vickie was a Referee. We had a lot of fun and it was great to all be together!

    Last night we had a nice dinner for my Dad's birthday! He was born on Halloween (today!) but since I was home last night, we celebrated! We had a delicious dinner of chicken quesadillas, fruit, salad, and pumpkin mousse! It was all FANTASTIC. Especially the mousse! That's actually a Weight Watchers recipe that my Mom found... and dang, it was delicious.

    [​IMG]

    I also got to carve my pumpkin! I went online and found a pluto stencil, so that was my design! I think he turned out pretty good! I love carving Disney pumpkins! Of course, we ended off the night by making Pumpkin seeds, which are pictured above. YUM!

    [​IMG]

    Now it's the actual day of Halloween and I am just pooped! I'm basically going to write this update, maybe start my research paper, and then probably just go to sleep! I'm so lame, I'm sorry! I guess just celebrated in advance, that's all!

    And the worst part about this is that I've only eaten one piece of candy today! And it was a snickers. A MINI snickers!! That might have to change before I go to bed LOL.

    Alright, anyways, I hope you enjoyed the mini halloween update. Now onto the Trip Report!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​

    Chapter 15: "Everything Smells Good Here!"
    August 21st, 2011

    We set our wake up call for 6:10 am this day! Insane, right? Well, it was a Sunday and we needed to go to church. I usually don't go in Disney (I'm so sorry, God!) but Nat is very dedicated to going to mass, so we worked it in the schedule. Mass was at 7:30 am, so we had to get up and go!

    I answered the wake up call at 6:10.... and I fell asleep with the phone in my hand! I didn't even listen to the recording! AHH!

    By the time I opened my eyes and looked at the clock, it was 6:45 am! SHOOT! We had to be out the door at 7!

    I told Kristen and Nat was time it was and they jumped out of bed!

    We all got ready INSANELY fast. It was slightly hilarious. I didn't even have time to shower, I just had to stick my head under the faucet and wash my hair.

    We all brushed our teeth like madmen and didn't even have time to do our make up!

    I think we made it outside a few minutes after 7, which was okay! We got in the car, and I did about half of my make up. It was too bumpy to do the complete procedure haha

    We drove to the church that is right outside of Disney Property. It felt SO weird to be driving in a car and leaving Disney grounds in the middle of the trip! AHH I never ever ever do that!

    We arrived just on time for church, even though our directions were a little hard to follow.

    [​IMG]

    Mass started at 7:30 am. I was so tired though... I was zoning out SO bad. Once again, I'm sorry God. Please forgive me.

    Mass ended at 8:31 am. We got a little lost on the way back, but soon enough we were back on Disney Property. - breathes a sigh of relief -

    [​IMG]

    We got back to Coronado Springs and we parked at El Centro.

    [​IMG]

    Can we just talk about how much I love that it's called El Centro?! It's just so fun to call it that. "Hey, I'm going to El Centro!" So much better than "the main area" or something boring like that.

    [​IMG]

    We went to Cafe Rix for a quick breakfast.

    [​IMG]

    I got a Ham, Egg, and Cheese Croissant. I have been wanting one of those for SO LONG. I always see food pictures of them and they always just look so delicious. It did not disappoint!

    [​IMG]

    Nat got a Chocolate Chip Muffin. I always call this the "Pretty Muffin Picture." Doesn't it look pretty, though!? I think it does.

    [​IMG]

    We ate outside and enjoyed our breakfast.

    [​IMG]

    Once we finished, we drove back to the room and we put the rest of our make up on.

    Then it was time to go!

    We got to the bus stop and the Epcot bus was there within minutes. We hopped aboard and entered Epcot a little after 10 am. Not too bad!

    Kristen, Nat, Sarah, and I went straight to Soarin' to get Fastpasses. We were bookin' it.

    Kristen and I were very excited to go into The Land because it just smells SO GOOD! We actually videotaped the moment of us taking our first whiff. Ahh such a great, heavenly Disney smell. &#9829; It's one of my absolute favorites.

    Our fastpass times were for between 2:00 and 3:00 pm. Not too shabby!

    Our plan was to get in the Standby line for Test Track... but the line was 70 MINUTES LONG! Uh... No thanks.

    We ditched that idea and went over to Mission: SPACE.

    [​IMG]

    It was the green side for us today!

    [​IMG]

    It was Nat, Scott, and Sarah's first time on it! Nat was really scared because she's claustrophobic, but she went on it anyway.

    I learned something new in this experience and I thought I'd share it with you all. If you are nervous about riding Mission: SPACE, ask the cast member if they can lower the screen for you before the ride so you can see how much room you have. That way, if you are claustrophobic, you can have sort of an idea how far away the screen will be from your face ahead of time.

    Nat thought the test was okay, so she proceeded to ride!

    Since we had 5 people, we had to split up into two groups. Nat, Scott, and Sarah rode together, and Kristen and I rode together.

    Kristen and I were in Line 7, I was the commander, and she was the engineer.

    Kristen put her sunglasses in the barf bag holder (don't worry it was empty!) and we had to make a mental note to grab those before we left.

    We rode the ride, got off, and everyone really enjoyed it! Nat was happy she survived!

    Then.... Kristen realized she left her sunglasses in the ride! Shoot!

    We ran back in the gift shop and asked the cast members for help. The guy sent us back through the exit.

    The one Cast Member remembered us rom waiting in line because Nat was scared. She was probably talking to him.

    Thankfully, since we're neurotic disers, Kristen remembered what line we were in and what seat she was sitting in. So that definitely helped!

    We had to wait for the ride to finish.

    [​IMG]

    So we talked to a Cast Member while we waited. We told him where we were from, and he got all excited! He told another Cast Member where we were from, and he was excited too! He must have been a local.

    The one who was from our area told us "Hey, I have a present for you girls!" We thought he was going to give us stickers or something, but then he pulled out TEST TRACK FASTPASSES! Oh my GOD!!! Our problem was solved, because we had no idea how we were going to get on Test Track! That line was just too long!

    We actually asked him if we could get 2 extra Fastpasses for Kristen's parents, and he was totally fine with it! That made our day - it was such a magical moment!

    [​IMG]

    The CM's said we were like the Kardashians. I'm guessing they were referring to the dark brown hair lol. (Speaking of which, Kim got divorced today. 72 days of marriage was too much for her, huh? What a shame.)

    Anyways, the ride was finally done and we took a picture with the Cast Member who gave us our Fastpasses! Yay! Thank you, kind sir!

    [​IMG]

    Sadly, my camera was acting really funky this morning, so it came out a little blurry. I accidentally changed a focus setting to manual instead of automatic, and I didn't figure out what was wrong until way later. So sorry about the quality.

    We said thank you a bunch of times and then we left Mission: SPACE. We met up with Sue at Innoventions and decided to use our fastpasses for Test Track!

    [​IMG]

    You don't see this lovely little combination in your hand every day, now do ya?!

    [​IMG]

    On our way over, I tried to fix my focus settings. It worked okay in the daylight!

    [​IMG]

    We got in line for Test Track! WOOHOO!

    [​IMG]

    Soon enough we were in our cars!

    NO DANCING ON THE RIDE!

    [​IMG]

    We danced!

    [​IMG]

    It was lots of fun! It was Sue's first time on Test Track! She does not do thrill rides at all so she wasn't a huge fan, but we were glad she went on anyways!

    Here's our ride picture! The plan was that me, Nat, and Kristen would be sleeping, and then Scott, Sarah, and Sue would act all worried that we fell asleep at the wheel! Unfortunately, Scott and Sarah forgot to pose hahaha. Oh well! And Kristen remembered to pose a little too late, so she's in the middle of posing. But it just looks like she's talking in her sleep... which is normal for her to do anyway.

    [​IMG]

    We exited into the Test Track dump shop, and I saw this miniature monorail display. I told Kristen to stand in front of it so I could take her picture!

    [​IMG]

    We exited the building afterwords and then Kristen realized she forgot her camera!! She left it on the table while we were taking the picture. She was forgetful today!

    [​IMG]

    Thankfully she found it with no trouble! So we were able to venture forward!

    Your halloween Pictures are great :) I was a cowgirl last year so it's fun to see other people be cowgirls as well. I am also a early halloween celebrater. I did all my celebrating friday, saturday and sunday so i'm also feeling lame for not celebrating today. oh well, halloween celebrations are really fun! I like when there are multiple halloween parties 2 go 2 because then you can pick 2 different costumes 2 wear like you and vickie did. Last year i had 2 seperate halloween costumes and it was fun having 2 different costumes that day. it made it feel like i was having my first halloween party of the year.

    Sorry about that, onto the update :)

    Where was the church you guys went 2? I have always been like you and have never gone 2 church while in disney (I always feel bad about not going and make church a main priority when i'm back home) so i'm just curious where there are churches near disney. I didn't realize you guys had a car while in disney this time, we usually perfer to travel by car so it is weird but nice when i see fellow DISers travel by car since most people on here travel by bus.

    Yay for being back on disney property. I am always very happy when we get back on disney property, it makes me feel like i am back home again.

    Your breakfest looks like it was good! that muffin picture is definitely pretty :)

    Yay EPCOT :) 10am is a pretty good arrival time since you guys didn't finish church untill 8:31, that is a really good arrival time actually :)

    Yay Soarin fastpasses! I have found that that ride is a absolute fastpass necessity. There is pretty much never a short wait on that ride.

    :( about the long test track wait but :thumbsup2 for the CM's to give you a test track fastpass. Your pose on the ride is great :) I have never been able to locate the camera on that ride. I really want to do a fun pose on that ride someday though.

    Nice to know about mission space letting you test out the amount of space you will get on the ride. That must have helped Nat out alot. Just out of curiosity what is the green side like? I have heard it is alot like star tours, is that true? I use to really enjoy that ride but i have not really felt like going on that ride my past few trips. maybe in the future i will try the green side sometime.

    Love the fastpass picture :) Those are defintely valuable when in disney.

    Hahaha veryyy clever! :thumbsup2 I like that a lot!
    I'm so glad you're here! I hope you continue to enjoy!
    P.S. I LOVE all of the graphics you have in your signature! Very cool!

    Aww were you? That's fun! Yeah I liked that costume it was cute! And yeah having two costumes is fun! I agree.
    I looked it up and the church (or shrine?) is called Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe. The address is 8300 Vineland Avenue, Orlando, Florida 32821 in case you're interested. :goodvibes I know, I always feel bad about missing it when I'm in Disney. But this time I made it there!
    Well that was the only time on the entire trip that we traveled by car! Kristen's family drove down to Disney for that trip, so they had a car. But they generally took the busses on the trip. I know the cars are probably huge time savers, but going on the Disney Transportation is part of the experience for me. :laughing:
    ME TOO. Disney is my home.
    I'm glad you agree about the muffin! lol
    Yeah I know! Dang we made pretty good time! Haha maybe it was 11 instead of ten. I'm not sure... 10 is what I had written down :rotfl: Who knows.
    Yup! Soarin FP's are a necessity!
    Thank you! And the camera is right before you go through the doors to go outside!
    Yeah I would definitely say the Green side is like star tours. It honestly doesn't feel like much of anything. It is A LOT tamer. Especially the blast off. That orange side blast off shakes me up every time! Woo! :faint:
    Yeah, I would definitely do the green side if you don't feel like going on. It's like nothing!

    Thank you! I know.. that made our day!
    And haha thank you. :thumbsup2

    Awh I love your halloween nails! Such a good idea! Although we dont have candy corn here so the idea might be lost on most people :lmao:
    That's rad you got to church, I always plan to go and somehow never get there. Next trip hopefully!
    Even though it's sad leaving property you got to drive under the arch again which is the best feeling! Hoorayyy!
    That is a very good looking muffin picture haha :thumbsup2
    Surprise fast passes are the best! Seriously make everyones day! :goodvibes
    I love the Test Track photo....Kristen's mum is doing a good job looking concerned about you guys.
    So its a bit off topic but all this talk of surprising in this TR had me thinking about how much fun it is and how we don't get to surprise people enough.
    So yesterday it was my bosses birthday so me and my co-worker snuck in on the weekend and completely filled her office with balloons...filled it... literally to the roof! And because I work in a performing arts institute there are instruments all through our building so we moved them all into her room so we could have people play music. Then got everyone to dress up in their Halloween costumes, buy heaps of food and come early and hide.
    She was SO surprised and so happy!It was a hit and so much fun!
    Its not super ellaborate or anything like yours, but you've totally made me want to plan a bunch of surprises now. So fun! :goodvibes

    Enjoyed the update! Love how you do your nails - there is something so adorable about candy corn.
    Hats off to you girls for going to church at Disney. I am very bad about going to church on vacation. When we go to Palm Beach, FL at Christmas, I do go to Mass then. There is something so pretty about churches surrounded by palm trees.:cloud9:

    How great that you got the test track fastpasses! I keep hearing the rumours that it will be closed for refurbishment next year and I'm worried about it. It's my boys 2nd favorite ride after Rock 'n Rollercoaster.

    Hey, there! Just caught up with your TR! It looks like you guys had an absolute blast!! Your nails looked super cute for Halloween! Very nice touch! I completely know what you mean about being so tired yesterday! I was out at 9:00 last night! haha:lmao: That's awesome that you guys made it to Church! Our travel days are usually on Sundays, they were last time, and are this time, too! So it's hard to get to Church when that happens!lol Kristin sounds like me with losing things! But atleast everything was still there when she went back for it! Gotta love Disney! Soarin and TT FP's?! That is very cool!:thumbsup2 Sounds like a wonderful day at EPCOT! Can't wait to read more!

    Cute Halloween costumes! I was totally a loser this year and didn't go to any Halloween parties or dress up at all...bummer :sad2: Last night, Chris and I just watched The Nightmare Before Christmas and went to bed early as well...so you weren't alone! lol

    You are very dedicated to get up to go to mass so early in Disney!

    That was awesome that the CM from your area gave you TT FPs! Holding a TT and Soarin' FP at the same time is like the Holy Grail of FPs :rotfl:

    I love yours and Kristen's dresses this day!
