    Loving the update. The photos of Elsie are so cute, I love her first trip top and she looked adorable as Rella!! We've only got 31 days til we go now so your trip report is giving us a much needed Disney fix to get us well and truly excited about our trip. Can't wait to read the rest xx

    Etsy her shop is called Lainey Belle Boutique She is great she made Elsie's Jessie dress. The top isn't listed on her site but if you contact her I am sure she can do something for you.

    Thank you very very jealous of your ticker ;)

    31 days so so so jealous. I hope you have a great time. Our first day home we had major melt down tantrum because I wouldn't let her wear a princess dress :rotfl:

    I meant to ask did you think photopass plus was worth it, we are going to most of the restaurants but will only go on one or two of the rides on it. We'll definitely get photopass as its just the two of us but can't make up my mind on the plus so any feedback will be great xx

    Lots of very special memories from this holiday :lovestruc

    Yay Glad to have you joining in

    Hello stranger, you lucky thing I am sure your trip will be here before you know it!

    We had 550 photos from 2 weeks (once i addded boarders and edited photos it was well over 1000) but we saw a lot of characters, also ate at a lot of the meals listed. I think it is worth it personally especially if it is just two of you. You will get lots of lovely photos together then.We didn't get any magic shots but I think it is because Elsie is too young. We will get it for every trip from now on.

    Your Elsie is so cute - what a great start to your trip.:) I have a little niece and I can't wait til she is old enough to meet the princesses.

    So nice you had an upgrade at your villa!!! Love that pixie dust!

    Joining in your TR. sounds really good so far. Elsie looks very cute in her outfits. I think I may need an extra suitcase for the kids clothes, and I dread to think how much we will bring back.
    We are also staying at SSR. How did you like the resort with a little one?

    Aw thank you! She sure knows she is :D


    It was a magical day

    The villa was amazing :D Aw that will be amazing! So exciting to see the littles ones get excited for the characters

    Luckily virgin gave Elsie full luggage allowance or I don't know how we would of coped with out it. She has a lot of costumes and a lot of clothes. We didn't know we were going to have the villa if we did I would of packed a lot less as I did all our washing there.

    SSR is amazing have you requested a block yet? We stayed at Congress park this was our view from the bedroom

    The park

    You can just see the pool through the trees

    [​IMG]

    Characters in flight. Elsie loved watching this go up and down. All we heard was balloon every 10 minutes lol.

    But we were really impressed with the paddock and will request there next time.

    Again up early not as bad as the day before 5.30. I had a shower whilst Dave and Elsie watched Sofia Elsie loved that there was Sofia on.

    We had breakfast booked for 9.30 we were ready at 7.30 and decided to walk to DTD then get the bus to the Poly. The walk over was lovely. I love the smell in the morning at Florida.

    [​IMG]

    Buses didn't start till 8 it was quiet fresh this morning and we didn't want to wait. We ended up just getting a taxi.

    We got there really early about 8 which was actually great. We had our photo and were seated straight away. There were 20 families in there if that.

    Elsie was dressed as Lilo today and the staff in there loved her out fit.

    They gave her this little note and a cupcake. (We didn't add a celebration to any of our reservations so it was really nice to get this)

    [​IMG]

    Sorry cant flip it! Grrrr Photo Bucket


    [​IMG]

    Saw Lilo first.

    [​IMG]

    then Stitch

    [​IMG]

    Elsie's favourite. Pluto

    [​IMG]

    Little monkey. If you have read my Disneyland Paris September 2012 TR you will know why she loves Pluto the most.

    [​IMG]

    Then her hero Mickey Mouse (Waiter is delivering the scrambled egg so Elsie is totally distracted)

    We loved Ohana and glad we did go early. The character interaction was great the food was probably the best we had at breakfast. Will be back here thats for sure.

    After breakfast we got on the monorail to Grand Floridian.

    [​IMG]

    Elsie's first monorail is the green one.

    We had a look round the shop in there. Elsie is such a poser she took this hat off the stand and put it on her self comes over pulling at me going "Cheese" with a huge grin on her face.

    [​IMG]

    Love that picture

    I love Grand Floridian its just wow but I felt really sad walking round with all the work going on. We got on Elsie's first water taxi.

    [​IMG]

    They gave her a water taxi sticker so of course she was thrilled.

    We got off at MK and got the bus to Yacht club (See the title is very appropriate here there and every where)

    We had a wander around the Boardwalk and looked in the shops.

    [​IMG]

    Hurry up mum!

    [​IMG]

    Where now? Epcot? Why not?

    We walked in and who do we see just stood there alone?

    [​IMG]

    Rella!

    [​IMG]

    We stayed there with her for ages, Elsie wouldn't leave her and when we eventually walked away Elsie was so upset to leave her alone. Three little girls had spotted her though and were heading her way.

    Epcot was pretty quiet we walked towards future world grabbed a drink on the way and just let Elsie have a run. We were walking by the fountain when a CM told us Mickey, Pluto and Minnie didn't have a wait and were this way. How could we say no?

    Well we waited a little only because Mickey was off to get some cheese, Pluto needed a bone and Minnie wanted to change her bow. Love the reasons the CMs come up with lol!

    Mickey was great with Elsie and even though he can't talk and Elsie cant exactly say much they still spend plenty of time together.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He had a big dent in his shoe though. You can't see it in our pictures though.

    Next was Pluto we were a bit disappointed with Pluto he didn't interact with Elsie at all.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Finally Minnie Mouse

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Minnie was great. They twirled together and danced. Elsie would of stayed there forever I think if we gave her the option.

    We made our way back to SSR for lunch. After something to eat we decided to have a swim in the quiet pool. We were the only ones actually in the pool.

    [​IMG]

    Elsie started jumping in and loved it. Gave Dave and I heart attack every time though!

    I don't have any more pictures from today sorry.

    Elsie had a nap and we decided to go to DTD! Ah huge mistake it was so busy. We looked in the shops but it was too difficult with a pushchair. We love EOS but had a sandwich for lunch and just wanted something different so we carried on. We stopped in Pollo Campero is it? Where Mc Donalds used to be next to the Lego shop. I liked the look of it but Dave doesn't like meat on the bone. Back out. Cookes of Dublin was our next stop and yay something we both wanted. I had a battered beef burger, chips, a cookie and pink lemonade. Dave had a grilled chicken burger, chips, fruit pot and fruit punch. WOW the food was so good. So good we return a lot.

    Full to the brim carrying our cookies we decided to battle through World of Disney. Elsie picked up a Doc McStuffin doll set and I went in Basin and got my self some bath bombs and lip balm. My lips were really dry from the flight. This stuff was so good my lips were fine by the time I woke up

    Dave and I got some treats in Goofys candy and we headd back for a good nights sleep.

    What brilliant photos it looks like you had a great time, so glad you got to meet the characters with hardly any line. I love that Elsie put that hat on and said "cheese" how cute! Can't wait to hear more. I've just ordered the photopass plus and am kind of excited now! Only 29days to go:). Any news on your sister today xx

    Thank you hopefully it will still fit when we go back :D

    Every day was just so amazing. No day sticks out as a favourite because they all were. :D

    Photopass plus is great when you eat at places like 1900 Park Fare (breakfast or lunch) Ohana, Tusker house, Chef Mickey you get the photo print as well as it being added to your card which was great they are like $26.99 each time.


    Aw thank you I worry no one will ever read my TRs.

    She is a real character already and has so much confidence. Every one thinks she will be on the stage lol!

    We really were we seemed to just get there as they were coming off their breaks.

    Aw thank you! No I bought it off Etsy. Dave has bought me a sewing machine so I can start practising to make my own save him some money in the long run lol
