    Turning This Night Around!!!
    May 27, 2012

    After Wishes ended we were still kind of running in 100 different directions. We had told Miranda and John that we were headed to Cosmic Ray’s for something to eat once the fireworks were over. So that’s where we were headed.

    I got a text from them saying that they had headed in that direction but weren’t feeling to food there so they went to look elsewhere.

    We went to Cosmic Ray’s anyways because it was close. I wasn’t a fan of it the last time we had eaten here and apparently it wasn’t Brittany’s favorite (she doesn’t like Sonny Eclipse) either but we decided to at least check it out.

    When we walked in Andy and I picked up a menu while Sam and Brittany went to use the restroom. I read the menu and nothing seemed appealing to me. The girls were in the bathroom for a while and I contemplated for what seemed like a lifetime to eat there or try and find someplace else.

    We ended up sitting at a table and debating for “a few” (more like 10 or 15) whether we were going to eat there or not. I felt bad making everyone leave just because I didn’t want to eat there. Luckily all Sam wanted was chicken fingers and the other two didn’t care either way.

    Decision made: we are leaving. But where would we head to now? Well let’s just check out our iphone undercover tourist apps and see what we can find.

    Decision made: we are now heading to Pinocchio’s Village Haus. This was the very first meal we had on our trip with Andy way back in 2009. First time we had used the Dinning Plan ever and they had the BEST chocolate cake (they must have switched suppliers because the cake they have now is not the same as it was way back then)

    We walked over the restaurant themed for Sam’s favorite Disney characters. Now I face yet ANOTHER dilemma. What do I want to eat here?! Choices meatball sub or one of their new flat bread pizzas.

    Sam and Brittany new exactly what they wanted to they were in the and out of the line looking for a table in no time. Me on ther other hand I was like “ummmm… meat ball sub. WAIT. No… pizza. Ehhhhhhhh no sub but the pizza sounds so good.” This was one of those moments when I am so glad Andy is never in a rush and just goes with the flow or else he would have been so mad at me. Luckily some old women line jumped us so I had a little extra time to make up my mind.

    The cast member who took our order was SO NICE. When I got up to order I was set on meatball sub but then Caprese Flatbread just came out of my mouth. Ok stomach speaking your mind. I like it!!!

    Andy got chicken nuggets (once again, what an adventurous eater we have on our hands) and I had to try the chocolate cake to see if it was the same as it was in 2009. It wasn’t and hasn’t been for some time but hey, cake is cake and I’ll take it!!!

    When we found Sam and Brittany they had gotten a table in the room that looks over It’s A Small World. I got a text message from Bobby saying he was on his way into the park, he had gotten out of work just as the fireworks ended. He asked where we were and told us not to move.

    Ok now for some delicious food pictures!!!

    My pizza and Andy’s chicken nuggets

    [​IMG]

    The Pizza was so goooooood. I have literally craved it at least twice a week since we got back from the trip. It was the perfect amount of sauce tomato and mozzarella. With the most delicious balsamic glaze drizzled on top and a hint of basil. Yum. It was a very big size too. I ended up eating all of it but one square.

    I raved about it sitting at the table and one of the women sitting next to use heard me and said, would you recommend that? I debated getting it but didn’t. I told her it was delicious and she should try it!!! She immediately went and ordered herself one. I think she liked it a lot too.

    Andy’s chicken nuggets were, well just that. Chicken nuggets. Just like Sam’s… She loves chicken nuggets and was glad that she finally got her hands on them once I made up my mind where to eat that night.

    [​IMG]

    Brittany also got one of the new flatbreads (which I think had just been added to the menu earlier that month). She got the BBQ Chicken one

    [​IMG]

    She was stuffed with two squares left.

    Bobby showed up about halfway through our meal sat and began to tell us the story about his day/night at work. Halfway through he was like I am going to go get my own of the Caprese Pizza it looks good.

    He got back to the table and told us all about how his manager was hating on him that night. He had found someone to extend to cover his shift but the manager denied it. The he was feeling sick from stressing out and said that he was ready to puke in the bathroom but they still wouldn’t let him go. Then they ended up bumping him to the closing shift so he worked longer than he thought he was going to have to!!! He was upset and was just glad to be out of work.

    So when we were all done eating vacuum Bobby took all the extras on our plates (about 4 chicken nuggets and three slices of pizza) and we were out the door feeling much better with food in our empty bellies.

    [​IMG]

    Miranda texted me saying that they had finished at Pecos Bills and were getting in line for BTMRR.

    While we waited we headed over to let our full tummies settle at Mickey’s Philharmagic

    [​IMG]

    I promised myself this time I wouldn’t cry. Last time we were here in March my eyes were all red and were not going to tolerate a 3D movie. Round two, hope it goes better

    [​IMG]

    We were in a happy peppy mood once again!!! Yay Disney. Here we go getting pumped. 3am here we come (I think at this point it was about 11pm or so)

    [​IMG]

    Bobby had us stop to take a picture with our poster!!! We are The Three Caballeros and have the shirts to prove it (more on that on day 2)

    [​IMG]

    After that Miranda and John had gotten in line for something else so we decided to head over to Tomorrowland and wait for them there. We took the pathway back through the Fantasyland expansion and it was a much different experience at night. Less crowded and claustrophobic. Phew. I actually really enjoyed the walk. But we were sad that The Great Goofini was closed by now. Andy was really looking forward to it.

    We decided to take a pit stop and wait for the other two to walk over from Frontierland

    [​IMG]

    What time is it? And we are trying to stay here until when?!

    [​IMG]

    Andy was getting sleepy and I was being childish

    [​IMG]

    Point proven

    [​IMG]

    When they didn’t show up we got concerned and then we lost Bobby. Oh man. This was certainly a night to say the least. Kepping tabs on so many people is not a fun task.

    So Bobby ended up going over to a friend in Tomorrowland who gave him fastpasses for Space Mountain and a few fastpasses for any ride of our choice. Cool, I love having cast member friends!!!

    Once we found EVERYONE we headed over to Space Mountain.

    This picture does a pretty good job of showing you all just exactly how we were feeling. Me a 5 year old playing hide and seek, Andy being sleepy and Bobby being Bobby

    [​IMG]

    We waited about three years at the entrance of Tomorrowland for Bobby and John to talk to one of their friends. We assumed they were getting something from her but didn’t know what.

    I spent the time talking with Miranda about how he liked working so far (she works QSFB at a two places in MGM). She told me all about her roommates and training and then all of a sudden John and Bobby disappeared in the other direction. What the heck?! So we decided to move on in the direction of Adventureland.

    Just as we made it over the bridge Bobby called me asking where we were. OH MY GOODNESS BOY, stay with the group or don’t. Make up your mind haha. We pulled over just outside the Dole Whip stand to wait for them to catch up

    [​IMG]

    Turns out they thought we had walked away a lot sooner than we did so when they didn’t see us waiting for them anymore they went to Aunite Gravities to get coffee floats.

    We all decided that the bes thing for us to do next was head over to…

    [​IMG]

    I am not a fan. This ride scares me to death. The line was non existent and when we had a good time slowly strolling through. At one point Bobby got ahead of us and hid in one of the dark corners and jumped out. I screamed SO loud. It was nice to be in that Disney loving mood again. Friends and fun, that’s what Disney is all about!!!

    When we finally got to the front of the line they told us to go to the next boat and pick any row. We had a boat entirely to ourselves. COOL BRO!!!

    We looked for the guys standing on the porch that I have seen twice in all my trips, he wasn’t out, we talked about George and I started to panic. Bobby started telling me secrets about the ride. The only one I remember now is that the cast member who either lent his face or worked on the pirate with his leg hanging over the bridge actually shaved his leg and put his real leg hair into the pirate. That part has always grossed me out and now it will do so even more now, thanks Bobby!!! Haha

    From there we headed over to Splash Mountain. We made it all the way to the nice air-conditioned tunnel when they announced some not so great news the ride was on 101 or broken down (which as of recently it has a tendency to do A LOT according to a girl I went to school with who works there now). They told us that they were working on fixing it and that they didn’t know how long it would be but we were welcome to stay in line. We did. We figured we made it this far…

    I took some surrounding shots (most of which did not turn out because it was so dark). These poor people were literally trapped in their boats. They couldn’t get out.

    [​IMG]

    This was about after 10 or 15 minutes

    [​IMG]

    Then we passed the 20 minute mark, long day at work taking it’s toll on Bobby…

    [​IMG]

    The cast members in the control booth diligently working to fix the ride, or just pretending to do so so that they don’t have to stay until 3 am? Haha

    [​IMG]

    We started dancing while we waited and the girls did some ballet excerisises to show off their dancer calves

    [​IMG]

    Eventually they told us that the ride was broken beyond repair for the night and that they would have to evacuate everyone. Except the people in the logs beucase they couldn’t get them to unlock. Poor people…

    [​IMG]

    So Splash Mountain was a no go but we had the park for about 2 more hours!!! What should we do next guys?!


    Tune In Next Time!!!

    Mmmm, your flatbread looks delicious!

    That stinks Bobby didn’t have a good night at work. His boss sounds like a jerk.

    Your Space Mountain picture is awesome!

    I have read that that pirate’s leg hair is real hair. That is just nasty. It really is.

    Those poor people stuck on Pirates. I wonder how long they had to sit there for.

    It was so good. I swear sometimes I dream about it :cloud9: haha

    Yea, he said that he had three managers two of them were really nice but the one was mean. OF COURSE he got stuck with the not so nice one that night haha.

    I think it's one of my favorites from the trip. We don't like the place where space mountain takes the picture, it just happens so soon and it's uneventful like a lot of the other photo spots. So we try to make it a little more fun.

    Isn't that the weirdest thing? I always end up going right under it too!!! I refuse to sit on the end of rides with anamotronic people (if it's manageable) beucase they are just too scary for me. I have anamatronicaphobia :rotfl:

    They were manually going through and emptying every log. The people in the actual loading dock probably got out pretty fast. I can't imagine how many logs were actually in the ride that had to be emptied out. That must have taken FOREVER.



    Hey there :wave2: I'm glad that you decided to comment and let me know you are here I love my readers!!!

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I am debating having an ongoing TR or having a blog. Maybe both!!! Who knows? haha so I will definitely be filling you in on how everything goes there!!!

    How exciting!!! Let me know when you are thinking about applying and I'll tell you everything I know.

    Sam and Brittany were exactly what the Andy/Alicia duo needed. I love traveling with my sister. We have basically done everything together since we were younger so it's always an adventure with the two of us.



    :wave2: Hello, welcome and thank you!!! I'm glad that you are enjoying the report so far and hope that you continue to do so :thumbsup2



    :upsidedow Thank you :joker: I'm glad that our silly antics can keep you laughing.

    Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures!!!
    May 27, 2012

    So after the 20-30 minutes wait with no actual riding we decided to get down to business. Unfortunately the worker bees had to get going because it was past their bedtime. We said goodbye to Bobby, Miranda and John. They handed over a stack of fastpasses that we could use (we didn’t end up using them, they were good for a few days after we left (but only in the MK) so we left them in the dresser drawer of our room when we left).

    We decided to head over to Fantasyland and get some of the “rides of our childhood” done. First stop was

    [​IMG]

    We were excited for a quick flight with the Darlings and Peter. As we all know, though the flight may be quick the line never is. Why is that? It’s a continuously moving ride and the line is always over 30 minutes. Weird.

    We hit that line raring and ready to go until 3am!!! And then we wait, and waited and waited…

    While we waited we made big plans for the rest of the night. I wanted to do Dumbo, Snow White, the Tea Cups and Space Mountain. I didn’t know If we would be able to manage all those things beucase…

    Before long two of the four of us were basically sleeping standing up. Let me tell you, it wasn’t the sisters who are professional disers haha

    [​IMG]

    We finally made it to the front of the line and is was “here we go!!! Off to Neverland” Andy had fallen asleep, just a little (ok maybe a lot) but let me tell you he was quickly waken up on our descent back into reality when out ship decided to obnoxiously run into the landing platform. Startled awake he was good to go for a little bit longer. GOOD THING!!! We still had about an hour left.

    We made our way into the wee morning hours of Fantasyland and how beautiful it was

    [​IMG]

    Castle doesn’t looks sleep at all, she looks as beautiful as ever!!!

    We decided it was time for heartbreak and headed over to the ride that terrified me as a child. This was it. Even though we said it was the last time twice, this was really the last time to ride it. YOLO!!!

    [​IMG]

    I could cry just thinking about it. I decided I would document everything about it. So that when I have kids I can show them. Unfortunately my camera wasn’t really up for the task so most of the photos turned out blurry.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This is actually my favorite of Snow White’s outfits. When I was younger her wooden shoes were just so intriguing to me.

    [​IMG]

    Mirror, Mirror on the wall

    [​IMG]

    I have other ones that are super blurry and mostly I just wanted to take in the ride. I have a ton of pictures of it from past vacation so this was my time to enjoy it. When I was younger Snow White was my favorite so this was a big part of my childhood. I waved goodbye to Dopey one more time and that was it. Forever. Commence tears

    [​IMG]

    As we slowly wandered away I honestly felt tears. It was so sad to me. This was the ride that in my childhood I could barely keep my eyes open during. The ride that I refused to sit on the end of for fear of the evil queen/wicked hag. The one that had such a crazy track I could feel my little body swaying outrageously from side to side.

    We made it to the teacup area and it hit me. When I was younger I had never seen the whole thing because I was too scared but this time. I sat back and took it all in. I even sat there and laughed at my five year old self and thought “This really isn’t that bad at all”. The things our young minds are capable of creating, that real and honest fear I had. That’s why I love Disney. They are able to make anything possible for kids, they can make the lives of their favorite characters come to life, and they can put you in that story. I was grateful to have grown up with SWSA. I think it was a test, the first time I was able to ride it and take it all in was the last time I ever got to ride it. Thanks for ushering me into adulthood Snow White… You will always be one of my favorites.

    Stop being a sappy sad sack Alicia, you’re in Disney!!!

    Ok I just needed to have a moment of silence for a Disney Classic.

    Moving on…

    We were falling fast. We NEEDED something that would wake us up and help us make it to our goal of 3am. So what did we do? We headed in the direction of something that would wake us up. The quest lead us to Tomorrowland. Not approaching Space Mountain…

    If there was one thing that would wake us up this was it and boy did it do the job right!!!

    We got in the fastpass line at about 2:30am. We were actually going to make it!!! I heard that beloved start tunnel music and was just so at peace. I remembered the night we had before this moment and how we were able to cram so many emotions into one day… YOLO!!! This is a crash course Disney Vacation basically 7 or 8 full days crammed into 4.

    We zipped through the line and through space in no time

    [​IMG]

    We made our way back over the Tomorrowland Bridge and onto Main Street USA

    [​IMG]

    We found Round 3 of “Go Be That Statue” or in this case… Shrubbery

    [​IMG]

    What a whirlwind day we had had. We started to make our way out of the park.

    But first, a castle photoshoot

    [​IMG]

    Pure Joy.

    [​IMG]

    Space Mountain did such a good job of waking us up, it was a great way to end the night

    [​IMG]

    Slowly making our way out of the park

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then we found this door. What kid doesn’t dream of working for Disney?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And this girl’s dream is finally coming true. “I’ll just let myself in here…”

    [​IMG]

    We were just about to the front of the park and were “ready to leave”

    [​IMG]

    But we realized that we had one thing left to do!!! What was it you ask?


    Tune In Next Time!!!

    That’s cool that you guys got a ton of FPs, but you never used them, so I hope the people that stayed in your room after you guys got good use out of them :thumbsup2

    I wish I went on SWSA the last time I went (August 2011), but never got a chance to go on. Now I will never be able to go on it again :sad:

    I just love the star tunnel music <3 <3

    Hmmm…I think Brittany is going to plank over Roy and Minnie next! :laughing:

    Peter Pan over here at Disneyland is the same way. I don't get it!

    I don't know how you guys managed to stay awake for the entire time. I imagine many a caffeinated beverage was consumed.

    I hope someone got some use out of them!!! I wasn't sure if mousekeeping would have just thrown them out so I left some in the wall safe and some in the dresser drawer haha.

    Oh man, that stinks :worried:

    It's perfect. I actually made is my ringtone since the trip. MAGICAL pixiedust:

    YOU GOT THAT RIGHT!!! That's exactly where we are headed :rotfl:



    Hey there :wave2: Welcome aboard and thanks so much for reading along!!! Oh man every time someone talks about the other repost it makes me feel bad I have kind of cast them aside. I should get back to them. I guess writing about the last day just makes me sad. I am going through that too scared to leave home phase now.. I am trying to keep my mind off of it and enjoy the time I have left here. I know that I am going to love it once I get there and get the swing of things. It's just crazy that it's all happening so fast :scared: Oh well, I have like a million TR to keep my mind off things :rotfl:




    It's CRAZY!!! Maybe it's because it's one of the true and few Disney rides left? Classic.

    There actual was one large sprite shared at dinner and that was it for the caffeine. We were running on magic and space mountain adrenaline at this point. That child inside all of us was just aching to stay out past bed time :rotfl:

    I'm all caught up!!
    I'm sorry you didn't get to make it to HDDR!!! :( Sad day! I'm glad that your night turned around though, and you guys didn't let it get you down for too long!
    BTW I love your fascination with the lawn mower tree! hahahaha
    My husband saw that picture, and was like "what is that?!" I told him it was a lawn mower tree, and he just said "oh----that's not real" hahahah he just doesn't get it ;)
    That flat bread looks so yummy! I might have to get that in November! :)
    Philharmagic is soooo awesome!
    I'm glad you got to ride SWSA one more time before it closed!! Childhood memories are truly the best!
    You guys looked sooooo tired, but YAYAYAYAYAY you made it to 3:00!!

    It was a real bummer. But we decided next time we would do it!!! Always looking for reasons to visit Disney again :rotfl:

    I don't know why but I am obsessed with that treeeeeeeee. There was a guy standing there when we were taking the picture telling his friend how the tree had begun to cover too much of the mower so they had to chop off the top half of the tree. IT'S ALIVE :scared1: :laughing:

    It was soooo good. I would totally recommend it. I wish i could make it at home. That balsamic was just mmmm mmmmmm delicious.

    They really are. I feel so lucky that so many of my memories include Disney.

    I really didn't think we were going to make it, Andy specifically was falling fast. His eyes were getting all blood shot and he could barely stand up, I felt terrible but I guess not so terrible because I didn't just let him go back to the room. Whooops..

    I think that nailed he expression on the be the statue haha.

    Thanks for reading along with us!!!

    I Mean No Disrespect Mr. Roy
    May 27, 2012

    So even though we were nearing the end of our extra magical (and sleepy) Extra Magic Hours there was still one thing left to do.

    A little back story on the situation that is about to present itself to you…

    A few days before we left we made a list of all the things that we wanted to do while we were in Disney, among those things we about a million snacks and attractions. While we were spit balling ideas Brittany just sort of blurted out Planking Roy and Minnie!!!

    Since this was our only Magic Kingdom day we knew what we had to do…

    If you have watched our trip video you have probably seen the whole thing unfold on camera. I bring you the photo version of this planking adventure

    Oh my, what a beautiful view we have here.

    [​IMG]

    Do do do do do… Oh hey Roy, Minnie. What are you guys doing here?!

    [​IMG]

    Do you mind if I get a picture with you? Hold on let me just get situated here…

    [​IMG]

    Perfect. Everyone smile!!!

    [​IMG]

    Mission accomplished.

    As stated in the video we began to head out of the park at 2:50-2:55 am. Mission accomplish… Again.

    I wanted to get a sign with the theatre sign BUT there were people there taking pictures and I didn’t really feel like waiting soooo I settled for this one instead

    [​IMG]

    Still pretty!!!

    We were officially at the bus stop at 3:00 am. Get it. As we were approaching the bus stop we realized that there was an All-Start Music bus there and filling up but none of us were in the mood to run to catch it so we decided to wait for the next one. What’s a few extra minutes in, or rather next to, the Magic Kingdom. We were like the third group of people in line.

    We waited FOREVER for a bus so there’s an onslaught here of random bus stop fun.

    This one was “Sam take a picture of my Tinkerbell bag!!!” My grandmother got me this for my birthday my senior year of high school after she took a quick trip to Disney with her BFF.

    [​IMG]

    When getting in the line I didn’t feel like walking around all the chains so we played duck duck duck

    [​IMG]

    Bahahahahahaha…. I get this face from Andy a lot, it’s that “what are you doing crazy lady look”.

    I like to consider myself a free spirit so it’s not uncommon for me to sing, dance and just be wild sometimes. You know, just really let my inner 5 year old run free which explains this next picture plank the bus stop!!! Not really my best attempt I was getting sleepy my balance was a little off.

    Brittany on the other hand was on top of her game tonight

    [​IMG]

    It got to be 3:15 am and I could not handle standing anymore!!! Is there a rule that says no sitting at the bus stop? No? Ok down I go… I call Disney my home so I might as well make myself at home. We (or maybe just I) were getting delirious…

    [​IMG]

    3:30 rolled around and my eyes were not having the whole contacts thing anymore. So it was time to put on my glasses. Let me just tell you I am NOT A FAN of wearing glasses let alone wearing them in public, that’s how you know I was just ready for bed.

    Brittany says: “What time is it?! I’ve been up since when?! You want me to get up early tomorrow?!”

    [​IMG]

    Poor Brittany… you have no idea what lies ahead.

    Where’s the bus?

    [​IMG]

    Finally at around 3:40 or 3:45 the bus showed up!!! Yay

    [​IMG]

    Needless to say we loaded on and I believe that everyone fell asleep for the quick ride home. Those Disney buses pump in sleeping gas I swear.

    We made it back to the room at around 4:10. We made it WAY past our 3 am deadline. Holy Moly. I didn’t think we would make it to three let alone 4!!! Sam and Brittany quickly took showers. I passed out as soon as I hit the pillow beucase I had to wake up in 2 hours and 45 minuts. POWER SLEEP. Litterally we were cramming in EVERYTHING to these two days. Sleep is for losers, you can sleep at home. We bring new meaning to the NO SLEEPING IN DISNEY rule.

    So a quick cat nap it was…

    But would we wake up in time to make it to Rope Drop?


    Tune In Next Time!!!

    Bahahaha! Only you guys would plank across Roy and Minnie!

    I LOVE your Tink bag!

    “Now let me just plank at the bus stop…” :laughing:

    I sit at the bus stop all the time. I agree, it is your home so just sit anywhere you want!

    Less than 3 hours of sleep. Awesome! :thumbsup2

    Alright, I have come back from my absence to catch up on your TR and now I'm caught up! WOOT! :cool1: Well, it looks like you guys really went all out on this uh "You Only Live Once" trip. 3 in the morning? WOW! I really wish I had the chance to do something like that on my past trips, but I'm always with non-DisFreak people (my life). Oh well and I'm loving all the crazy planking at the end of the night. I've learned to discover I'm totally pro at that ::yes:: Very proud of that lol Sorry to hear though your luck ran out on you after AK and the whole Hoop Dee Doo debacle ): But I'm surprised you don't like AK, I thought you would be one of those weird DISers like me who really truly loves AK. Oh well... :thumbsup2 to Pin Trading and Vinylmation, you got such nice ones through your trade :goodvibes I thought it a bit funny to know you don't like POTC (are afraid of). That ride has never scared me though the ghosts supposedly living uh haunting in there probably would, though it would be awesome to work there and wake him up every morning... okay, maybe I shouldn't've mentioned that for your sake

    Can't wait to read more! :mickeyjum

    I have no idea how we did it. Literally we didn't sleep at all. ever. Let me just tell you I got home and lack of sleep hit me, I was sicker than a dog and couldn't move for a good 2 or 3 days :rotfl: Oh well YOLO. I'm glad that people weren't like offended by the planking pictures. I was afraid that people would think we were obnoxious and disrespectful, I swear we love and cherish Disney!!!



    She is a trip that girl. Really I was glad that she wasn't afraid to jump in and be a part of our craziness. To be honest Usually we wouldn't either, but we knew that we didn't have a lot of time so... YOLO is right haha




    I really don't even now why she came up with the idea!!! We forgot about it until our walk out that night. Good thing to because if I recall correctly that statue gets HOT during the day because of the sun.

    Thank you!!! I don't know why I never use it. I was glad I grabbed it last minute to take with me.

    My plank was such a failed attempt. Best leave it to the master planker Brittany haha.

    But really!!! I just plop down where ever. I think I actually took my shoes off for a quick second one night as well. YOLO :rotfl:

    I honestly was not in the mood for waking up the next day. I felt like I barely closed my eyes!!! The only thing that woke me up was knowing that I would be riding tower of terror A LOT.


    Welcome back and thanks for reading!!!

    It makes me sad that they don't have crazy outrageous EMH all year long. When we looked into Magic Kingdom was only supposed to be opened until 1am but then a few days before we left it switched to 3 and we were like THAT'S WHERE WE'RE GOING!!!

    maybe you can give me some planking tips. I'm not very good at it :rotfl:

    It's not that we don't like Animal Kingdom so much as it's always SO HOT there. I just feel like I am going to spontaneously combust. Maybe when I am there for the DCP and it's more "wintery" in Florida I will enjoy it more. My Buffalonian heat sensitivity just is not a fan.

    I LOVE GEORGE!!! Haha, he's not the part that scares me. It's just the fact that I can't handle anamatronics, they are just to real for me. I would love to work at POTC so I could learn more about George and experience him first hand. I think that would be awesome.

    But Really, NO SLEEPING IN DISNEY
    May 28, 2012

    So on our second full day of this beautiful YOLO the alarm went off at exactly 6:45. To be honest I pushed it off an additional 15 minutes. As always I was the firs to wake up. I showered and slowly began to wake everyone up. First was Andy

    [​IMG]

    He apparently needed a few more minutes because when I was done blow drying my hair this was him

    [​IMG]

    Wakey Wakey. Good thing he can literally get ready in 30 seconds.
    Since we took the morning shower shift that meant Sam and Brittany got to sleep a little longer which makes up for the fact that they went to bed after us the night before. We had a pretty good system going. W showered and used the bathroom/sink area and then moved into the main room to use that mirror to finish up while Brittany and Sam used the bathroom.

    The rooms are small but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make it work. It’s all about scheduling and we wee running like clock work.

    Sam decided to get in a few more sleep minutes

    [​IMG]

    Now for those of you who have forgotten we went to bed at about 4:30 am. Total sleep count for the night 2.5 hours.

    TOTAL SLEEP COUNT: 6.5 HOURS

    Say what?! You think you are going to function on that little sleep?!

    Did I forget to mention that my favorite park had EMH until 1am?! Obviously we couldn't miss out on that!!!

    [​IMG]

    Not that it’s showing or anything…

    [​IMG]

    We left the room pop tart breakfast in hand at 8:10. Andy stopped really quickly to fill up our mug. I decided to try my hand at Sam’s classy photo. I held the button down too long or the thing was on rapid shutter because I have a million photos of them standing against this wall.

    After we got up and walking we were all really happy and awake. See!!!

    [​IMG]

    I love these because the light that streams in in the morning just makes the colors pop. Also, Sam’s face makes me laugh.

    [​IMG]

    I decided that this was a picture that I had to get. After all it’s my favorite word SUPER HUGE. Hello, my name is Alicia and I am obsessed with…

    [​IMG]

    We made it to the bus stop at about 8:15. Where were we headed you ask? Well none other than the park of all parks…

    [​IMG]

    We had a good breakfast while we waited for the bus to arrive. Breakfast of champions right here

    [​IMG]

    What a beautiful morning it is here in Disney at the All Star Music Resort

    [​IMG]

    The bus showed up at about 8:25. What a beautiful sight those Disney buses are!!! Don’t you agree?

    [​IMG]

    When we got on the bus and it started moving Bobby texted me to let me know that he had missed the bus by 2 minutes and that he would be a little later than we anticipated. The park opened at 9:00 and he was due to be at the park at 9:20…

    Dun Dun Dun. I mean I can’t complain he was getting us into the park for freeeeeee. So I said we were headed there and would just meet him when he arrived.

    Before ling we arrived at the home to my love. What a beautiful façade you have. Take me back in time to that time that I swear I was a part of in another life.

    [​IMG]

    If you haven’t read my other trip reports I must let you know in addition to being a 5 year old free spirit I am also a time traveler who is stuck in this decade. But really, I was made to either be in the golden age of Hollywood or the 50’s. I think in my time traveling I have dabbled a bit in each decade and those are the times where I truly just belong.

    We decided to take a seat on one of the planters right outside the entrance to wait for Bobby and hiss magical passes from the Disney gods.

    While we were sitting there one of Andy’s little friends scurried by. These really are his favorite part of Disney vacations. What a cutie.

    [​IMG]

    Looking good after just 2 hours of sleep guys!!!

    [​IMG]

    Yippie Skippie DISNEY!!! My favorite park. AHHHHHHHH.

    [​IMG]

    Since we were in Disney you know what it was time to do? Let the memories begin obviously…

    [​IMG]

    Also REASON TO YOLO #1 Star Warsweekend. Now if you remember in

    [​IMG]

    Show me your best light saber fight!!!

    [​IMG]

    Ok guys now be Mimi Kaboom and Paige Turner in Round 4 of “Be That Statue”

    [​IMG]

    Andy was just chilling taking in all the sights and sounds until bobby arrived. He was running just a little behind, he told me that the bus driver was crazy.

    [​IMG]

    While we were sitting and waiting Sam snapped this shot. She said it was a little girl being Cinderella with her one glass slipper. How perfect is that?!

    [​IMG]

    Shortly there after I got a text from Bobby saying that he was attempting to get through the giant baggage check. There was a school marching band that was coming in and they were literally the biggest group of people I have ever seen.

    But nothing was going to bring me down because this is my FAVORITE PARK and in a few minutes I would be seeing “my love”. Yay happiness

    [​IMG]

    Before long Bobby arrived and we were heading through the special cast member entrance

    [​IMG]

    HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY

    [​IMG]

    What a fun time, but where would we head next? Is that a real question?!


    Tune In Next Time!!!
