    Hi Jess!

    Once again I've disappeared and now I'm showing up and behind... I feel so bad... I will have to do some major catching-up over Christmas vacation which is THREE DAYS AWAY! So my Christmas present will then be to you, my... *wait for it*... gazillion comments :-) Yeah, we'll just say that, my gazillion comments are Christmas gifts :)

    I hope you have fun on your trip! For the longest time I thought you already left lol I can't wait to find out what this surprise is, though... being me, I like to figure out what the surprise is and I have my guesses, but I'll let you just reveal it and let me be me. :teeth: And while I wait I'll be catching up on this epic TR (even though I've been following your videos quite religiously :rolleyes2) hehe

    So, for now... Merry Christmas! :mickeyjum And I also wanted to let you know Aladdin is on at the moment on ABC Family and I know how much you love that movie though I'm sure you and Kristen are probably watching it, if you are home yet. If you are, tell that frump to get her butt on Pottermore so we can duel (yes Kristen, dueling is up! party: )

    Well, anyways, for now have a magical day or days depending on when I next leave a comment here or before you leave :goodvibes

    Bahaha I'm sorry food pictures are so distracting. :rotfl:
    Thank you so much! You too - I hope it's a great one!

    Aww thanks Kara :hug: I'm so happy you'll be able to follow along on twitter.. I'm very excited about that. And aww you are very very welcome! I'm so glad you guys enjoy hearing about my trips! :goodvibes

    Hahahaha omgg we thought of that while we were at Star Tours and we basically thought it was the funniest thing. :lmao:

    I think that they just randomly select someone. Because Kristen and Vickie were both the rebel spies during their trips and they were not sitting back there.

    I want one TOO!! Everyone looks better in a Mickey mirror!

    Oh my God so do I! I think if they tore it down now that would be a shame. People our age grew up with it there, so it would be so weird if it was gone!

    Of course! Ahh you guys are going to LOVE it! Definitely take some meds before just to be safe, but I'm telling you it is AWESOME!

    Yay I'm so glad! :goodvibes Oh yes, the fancy camera is coming with me so there will be TONS of pictures!!

    Aww well at least you're going to Florida for Christmas - the weather is looking like it's going to be good! (knock on wood!) Aww thank you! You too - Merry Christmas!

    PS - YUM it was. You should try it next time you go!

    Hello! Aww thank you! Ahh that is so exciting!! I bet you guys are freaking out just like I am!!

    You all are adorable! I love that picture! I will be on the lookout for you guys, and if I see you I definitely will say hi! If you see me before I see you, though, don't be afraid to say hello as well! I love meeting readers from the DIS :goodvibes

    I'm so glad you and your daughter have enjoyed the TR and are fellow Disney fans! You're so welcome - thanks for reading it!


    I'm so excited to write all about it! It's going to take me absolutely FOREVER but I'm sure it's going to be jam packed with some great stuff! And yes I will keep you all updated on the new school situation!

    Isn't it so cute?! I just noticed it for the first time that trip! That lamp is probably my favorite thing in the world.

    Hahaha REBEL SPY!!! That was an awesome moment of my life. I bet your husband loved/will love that ride!! And if you're watching the movies it probably is furthering your understanding of Star Wars which is great! See? - learning new things can relate to Disney. :thumbsup2

    LOL Kristen is quite behind on commenting on this trip report too! :laughing: She's very busy though between school and work and such. But I'm sure she'll get around to updating soon!

    Thank you! Ahh that was great!
    I will - I'm so so so excited! :yay:

    Hahaha good thing Disney has Star Wars so you can bribe Star Wars fans to go ;)
    And do you really!? That's awesome. Are the recipes good??

    Hooray I'm so glad!! Thank you for always being here! Thank you so much - I definitely will! And YAYYY FOR PLANNING!!! I hope everything works out for the next trip!

    I WILL!!! Thanks for all of the suggestions - I will make sure I see them! Haha yes there are lots of stories to come! It'll be quite the trip report!

    I know what you mean about the weather not being as bad this year! It's really weird because we don't even have snow yet and usually by this point it is SO bad! But hey, I'm not complaining!

    Aww that is so exciting for them! I bet they are going to have an amazing time! Especially if you and your Mom helped them plan a little bit!

    Yes you are definitely going to want to go on this new Star Tours! It's great! And even though I don't understand it, I love it so much! Haha I'm glad my description helped clear up the video a bit!

    Thank you so much! So have I - I can't believe it's finally happening! I will definitely want to do this with my kids someday too! I wish everyone could just come with me!!

    Were you really!? LOL that's so funny! Being a rebel spy is the BEST! I love when they TOTALLY snipe people doing something really funny - it's hilarious! And yeah, if I was a star wars fan I totally would have bought that!

    YUMMM me too! Ahh that's the question I ask myself every day.

    Me too! It's so cute!

    Thanks for reading! :)

    For those of you who are just catching up, don't miss my real life update and trip report update from yesterday, which are a few posts back. I'm going to update tonight and hopefully tomorrow night to tide you all over for while I'm gone. Have a magical night everyone - Enjoy the next update!


    Chapter 28: "PERIWINKLE!" "That's My Favorite Crayon!"
    August 22nd, 2011

    The reason we were aimlessly walking around Hollywood Studios was because we were waiting for Vickie and Dan to arrive! If you read my first trip report, The Port Report: Frumpin' Around the World with the Bathrobe Princesses :-) , you would remember our friend, Vickie! She was coincidentally down in Disney with her family at the same time as us, so we wanted to meet up this night for Extra Magic Hours!

    We met them near The Magic of Disney Animation and arrived while Vickie was in the bathroom. Dan was lingering outside, so we said our hellos and he told us to go around the corner of the bathroom so we could run out and surprise Vickie when she came out!

    She finally exited the bathroom and we stampeded towards her and gave her a huge group hug! WE'RE BACK IN DISNEY AND WE'RE REUNITED AND IT FEELS SO GOOD!



    We were ready for our night to begin! We wanted to go do the drawing class in the Magic of Disney Animation building, but the line was just way too long! Wasting time was not acceptable!

    So we left and went on STAR TOURS again! It's different every single time, which is absolutely awesome! That makes the experience even better.

    We were all buckling up, the cast member was ready to give us our instructions. He told us "All eyes on me!" and this little boy in the front yelled out "My teacher tells us that at school!" The whole car laughed, it was the most precious thing ever.

    We got off and Vick told us that when they were at Hollywood earlier in the day, she was the Rebel Spy too! So you know what that means...



    Kristen traded for a deer pin while we were in that gift shop. Unfortunately, she traded it away later in her vacation. But it was a great find at the time!


    We left Star Tours and headed to our next destination. Here are Nat and Kristen patiently waiting for us:


    We were going to the Tower of Terror! I seriously just feel like I'm floating on that ride, it's AMAZING!

    We planned to all do the deer face on our ride picture, however I don't think Vick got the memo. And Dan just seems to look like he's having the time of his life while the rest of us are just sitting there. LOL it's a great picture, really.


    We left there and went over to Rock N Roller Coaster with intentions of going on that next.


    However, Vickie and Dan were staying at an off property resort called the Windham. The thing was that they got a ton of different responses to the question "can we stay during extra magic hours?" Some people said yes and some said no. For example, at Tower of Terror they were completely fine, but the girls at Rock N Roller Coaster said absolutely not. And they were NASTY about it, they were not. So that was pretty frustrating. Vick and Dan weren't going to go back to Hollywood and they didn't get to ride Rock N Roller Coaster yet so they were upset.

    Being the nice veterans that we are, Kristen and I let Vickie and Dan use our room keys so they could go on with Nat. They were really grateful and went on the ride! The nasty cast members didn't even remember them so they got in line without a problem!

    Kristen and I decided to sit at Fairfaxe Fair and catch up on our trip journals. We were SO behind. The whole time they were waiting for and going on Rock N Roller Coaster, we just wrote and wrote and wrote.

    I think that this was my breaking point during the trip - the Hollywood Studios Extra Magic Hours. I was getting SO incredibly tired, and my feet hurt SO bad. And to top it off, it was super humid out even though it was very late at night.

    I asked Kristen to get me a bottle of water from Fairfaxe Fair as long as we were sitting there, and she comes back with a free cake! They gave it to her because she was wearing her birthday button! YAY FOR FREE CAKE! She was so excited, it was one of the highlights of her trip.


    We shared the delicious chocolate cake and then Vick, Dan, and Nat were done! We decided to head over to Toy Story Mania to squeeze in one last ride!

    We got to the attraction and the Cast Member put the rope up to block off the line. That was not the sight we wanted to see. We told him "NO PLEASE! YOU CAN'T DO THIS TO US!!!" And he was like "yes I can! JUST KIDDING go ahead!" Hahaha way to give me a heart attack, buddy.

    And also, Vick and Dan used their room keys and got on Toy Story Mania without a problem. So it really depends on the cast members, I guess.

    We got in the standby line. That was my first time EVER in the standby line, it was so weird! But it's decorated so beautifully, I loved it! To entertain ourselves in line we took some videos and pictures.

    These two pictures are for Nat:



    Hahaha so cute:


    We got a nice group picture with Mr. Potato Head, which is a huge highlight of sticking it out till the end of Extra Magic Hours.


    HAHAHAHA this picture just cracks me up. Not only Dan and his multiple pairs of glasses, but the guy standing behind him. He looks EXHAUSTED.


    Nat may look angry, but she is actually QUITE excited to go on this ride.


    All of the girls:


    No dancing on this one either?! At least it's on a nice piece of paper stapled to the wall...


    Dan absolutely LOVES Toy Story and this whole queue. It's probably the greatest thing to any Toy Story fan out there. He proclaimed that the Periwinkle Crayon was his favorite, and then Kristen got all excited, because the Periwinkle crayon is her absolute FAVORITE. And she "also likes the orange one."


    The conversations we had while waiting in line were pretty dang hilarious, because we were beyond exhausted. However, after about 15 minutes we were on the ride!

    I got the highest score again! I was on a roll that day.



    I have to say, that was a pretty successful way to end the night!


    We took lots of pictures on the way out because the park was EMPTY!


    And we laid on the ground in front of the hat... just because we could.


    And one last picture before we exited:


    We said goodbye to Vickie and Dan and then took our bus back to Coronado.

    We all walked around the room like zombies. We NEEDED sleep. Kristen slept over again that night.

    We filled up the bath tub with hot water and soaked our feet because we were in SO much pain. Ugh it was awful.

    Then we crashed. Big time. We had another day at the parks tomorrow, and sadly, it was our last full day.

    Wrap-Up of Day 2:

    - Getting in and out of Hollywood Studios within 20 minutes!
    - Having my first Red Velvet Cupcake
    - Getting free Kilimanjaro Fastpasses because of the birthday button
    - DISNEY PIZZA from Pizzafari
    - Nat's first ride on Toy Story Mania
    - One Man's Dream
    - Meeting up with Vickie and Dan and just basically hanging out with them in Disney!

    - The HEAT.
    - The less than fantastic meal at Tusker House
    - The crowds at the bus stop at Animal Kingdom
    - My feet KILLING and getting to be very exhausted
    - The jerk cast members at Rock N Rollercoaster

    Food of the Day:
    Red Velvet Cupcake from Starring Rolls Cafe in Disney's Hollywood Studios



    And here are all of the videos from Day 4:

    OMG yay for Kristen and her family! I can't wait to join DVC someday!
    That pic of Nat in the back bend and Kristen squatting down next to her just made me laugh so hard! Love you guys!

    "It was just a really frumpy moment" LOL.

    Oh man watching your videos is so fun, I feel like I'm with you guys. Make sure you eat a lot of those red velvet cupcakes for me!!!!!

    The deer pin is cracking me up. What an awesome find!

    FREE CAKE!! Disney is just the most wonderful, special, magical place in existence. :cloud9:

    I love the Toy Story queue. It's adorable. I can't believe this was your first time going through the regular line. I mean, I use FP as often as I can, but I've slummed it with the regulars quite a few times. :rotfl:

    Your videos fill me with so much joy. Seriously. Also sadness because I'm not running around WDW right this very moment, but mostly joy. I love that you included footage of the Lion Section aka the only section that matters. RAWR :simba:

    I just reread your evening at the Magic Kingdom on August 21st because I realized I was there at the same time! I doubt our paths crossed though, as we seemed to have been in different parts of the parks during those few hours. The only time we must have come close is right after Wishes. You went to ride Snow White and we went on Winnie the Pooh. :)

    SO MANY updates to read, yay! Oh girl consider this your warning that this comment will probably be long... hahaha sorry about that!
    Aw haha Nat looks so excited for TSM, it's so cute. That ride is just so brilliant.
    Okay so I STILL haven't done a drawing class so I obviously have never seen the pre-show, but when you mentioned it, it reminded me of the Disney Full House where Joey goes into the animation building (which I GUESS is the same one?!) and he draws himself as a cartoon and uses his head as like all kinds of sports balls... yeah... my mind tends to wander...
    AHHH I love the poster you bought!
    Omg... PRINCE ERIC. You mentioned Prince Eric. OHHHHHH PRINCE ERIC. I mean okay I know you were talking about a CM named Eric but... Prince Eric. LOVE. I feel about him the way you feel about Aladdin hahaha, so I know you understand.
    Walt Disney IS a genius. GENIUS MAN. MY ABSOLUTE HERO! :worship:

    You're going to surprise US?! I'm so excited! :banana:
    You're so welcome, I'm so happy to be a reader because honestly it's a treat for me to read about someone who gets Disney and loves it like me! I'll be very excited to read your next TR, and thank YOU for writing them!

    OMG OMG OMG you were the rebel spy?!?! I was too!!!!! Although I have to say, I have come to the conclusion that mine was for a specific reason because the CM was trying to tease me... but that's a story for my TR! (wink wink nudge nudge.)
    OMG AND THEY HAD A SHIRT?! I didn't even see that!!!! That's so awesome! Us rebel spies... we're pretty much the best. :cool2:

    Yay Vickie! Bathrobe princesses. :) I loved that TR!
    Stupid mean cast members. That was sweet of yall to let them go on... stupid mean cast members.
    Hahaha I've never been in the TSM stand-by line either. I've never seen the glorious Mr. Potato Head in person!

    I wish I could bring you with me!!!!! But thank you for being happy for me I'M SO EXCITED!!!!! :banana: This is going to be a Christmas to remember - that's for sure! :goodvibes

    Definitely try that carrot cake cookie... you would LOVE it! :thumbsup2

    DVC is probably the best investment you'll ever make in your lifetime! You won't regret it once you get it! My Mom always says she wishes we joined sooner! :laughing: Especially with our exceedingly high obsession level.

    Hahaha we enjoyed taking frumpy pictures like that... because how often do you have that kind of opportunity, really?

    Yayy I'm glad you like the videos!! And oh, I will DEFINITELY be eating a Red Velvet Cupcake YUMMM!

    It's like a mini spa right in the room for the poor beat up feet. :laughing: I don't know what it is but the moment my feet hit the Disney concrete they are immediately in pain. :rotfl:



    Isn't that the greatest? I'm sad Kristen traded it. :laughing:

    Cake makes everything the best! :thumbsup2

    Hahaha I know aren't' I weird!? There are some rides I just never go standby for. I also had never really done DHS EMH until this trip (I know.. I'm insane) but I hope I can do it again during this upcoming vacation! We will see if anyone will actually stay with me. :laughing:

    I'm glad the videos bring forth emotions. And I wish wish wish you could come to Disney tomorrow. :hug: I will keep you as updated as I possibly can!

    And of course! I wasn't even in the Lion Section and it made the video. That just proves how fantastic it is! :thumbsup2

    Ahh were we really!? That's crazy! Aww I wish we would have seen you - that would have been so cool!

    WELCOME BACK! I hope you had a fantastic and magical trip! (even though I already told you that LOL) Lay it on me - I'm ready for the long comment!

    Somebody literally just mentioned that Full House segment of the show a few pages back! It totally makes me think of that too! I wish they included a snippet of it in the preshow.. that would have been so cute! I LOVEEEE Full House with all my heart.

    Hahaha I COMPLETELY understand why you love Prince Eric. He is BEAUTIFUL. Such a man. Why am I in love with all of the animated characters? I don't know. But ahh I'm glad you're as obsessed with him as I am with aladdin. :love:

    Yes I am! Considering you're on twitter you may have some sort of idea... but I'm not sure. We will have to see if you know by the time those updates roll around!

    You are so cute! I'm so glad you're a reader :) You're welcome and thank you for the compliments!

    Hahaha I am very excited to read that story! Let me know when you start your TR! And yes they had shirts! So. Awesome.


    Okay good night.

    Real Life Update #2: ONE DAY!
    December 20th, 2011


    Actually it will be Disney day in a little less than half an hour from now!

    And with that said, I will unfortunately will not be able to do a trip report update tonight. However, I am going to get a little extra sleep by not doing so, which is for the benefit of us all.

    I'm leaving my house tomorrow at 5:30 am :scared1: (It's not a Disney trip without an obnoxiously early wake up time!) and I will be arriving in the World shortly after. MY MIND IS BLOWN.

    I can't wait. I seriously am freaking out. But I'm so tired. It took me FOREVER AND A DAY to get packed. But I'm finally ready. READY TO GO. Let's go, let's go, LETS GOOOOOO!! :banana:

    Please excuse my exceptionally high excitement level.

    Alright, that's really all I have to say. I wanted to apologize for the lack of promised update, but at least it's for good reason!

    I hope you all have a magical night and I will talk to you once I get back! (If not sooner, regarding you Twitter Dis-Girls ;) )
