Sounds like a great parade experience and a good afternoon!
I loved her, I go a little crazy with the pictures so I capture all the expressions.Oh my goodness, Anna is HYSTERICAL! Way to go on capturing that picture!
I agree, I miss the original scene and wish it wasn't changed. However, I do think they did a good job with the new scene, it looked really good.I'm glad you were able to take your pirates on their ride! It won't be quite the same to ride it without the "We wants the redhead!" scene, but I do understand why they changed it. (I usually agree with such changes, but this one was hard for me as it feels so nostalgic!)
lol, they were melted pirates by then.Hopefully your pirates don't scare any of the animals in your next park!
I was so good, so glad we stayed to do it.Sounds like a great parade experience and a good afternoon!
Well, at least he's agreeing to a picture... small victories, right?
Oh, that's cool! DS loves the new Duck Tales, so Scrooge McDuck might just be a character we'll need to meet. I didn't realize he was there!!!
That really stinks... I'd have been really frustrated by that too. I realize there is a time on the pass and you apparently missed that window, but still. There's room and it shouldn't be that big of a deal to work with you. I think you did alright though... not sure I wouldn't prefer ice cream over Rivers of Light anyway.It felt like forever, for the rest of them to ride FoP. We had done the dining package at Tusker House and we were getting close to the start of Rivers of Light. After what felt like a lifetime, we met back up and walked as fast as our feet would carry us over to the theater. The show was just starting when we got there and we were directed to this stand area, even though there was tons of seats and again we had the dining package. The CM was very unpleasant and told us we could not go try and find a seat because the show had started the lights were dimmed. I was super annoyed, more with myself than anything, but then I see a family walk in and they are allowed to walk into the seated section to take a seat. I was mad then. Even if they had gotten up to go to the bathroom, the same principle should stand. If it is a safety issue, no one should be able to walk through the seating then. Really not in the mood to see the show now, I left with J and N. Somehow, by the time I got to the bus stop, DH and C had beaten us there. They decided not to watch either and we all headed back to CBR. Feeling bad about missing the show, we took the boys to the Island Market and got everyone some ice cream.
He'd appreciate that you think soJoe's PP pics with the backback are hysterical!
Thanks, at least it's one successful family pictureThe family selfie in front of the moss wall is awesome!
It's okay, I just really like RoL, but there's always next timeI'm sorry the day ended on a sour note and you didn't get to see RoL But icecream helps!
It is somethingWell, at least he's agreeing to a picture... small victories, right?
There is also Launchpad McQuack. We didn't have time to meet him, so it's on our list for next time. My kids are huge Duck Tales fans too.Oh, that's cool! DS loves the new Duck Tales, so Scrooge McDuck might just be a character we'll need to meet. I didn't realize he was there!!!
Unpopular opinion, but I really like RoL, but we needed a relaxed night anyway, and ice cream makes everything better.That really stinks... I'd have been really frustrated by that too. I realize there is a time on the pass and you apparently missed that window, but still. There's room and it shouldn't be that big of a deal to work with you. I think you did alright though... not sure I wouldn't prefer ice cream over Rivers of Light anyway.
Age... I keep finding it gets harder every trip. I've gone from "Naps???? There's no time for naps!" to "Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz"I don’t know what it was about this trip, but it wiped me out more than any trip in the past.
This is going to be one of our biggest struggles. Not Carousel vs. Elena... I really don't think Elena will be one we need to see unless the line is just crazy short. But I know every time LG sees the carousel... oh boy.The wait for Elena was really short, and I knew N wanted to meet her, but he was lured over to the carousel and no amount of logic would make him see Elena before he rode it.
That's awesome! Gotta take advantage of those opportunities when they present themselves.We were having such a good morning, and the crowds were so light, we decided to stay at MK longer than planned and enjoy it.
I was so nice to have a relaxing morning in MK, it's so rare now.Sounds like a good breakfast and a really great morning at MK! You guys did a lot!
You and DH look so lovely all dressed up for dinner!
Thanks, I certainly feel lovely, but when in a rushMy goodness, you look LOVELY without makeup! I wish I looked as nice!
It was still very fun, just a fail on my part.How funny that the boys didn't know many of the 1900 Park Fare characters! It looks like you had a great breakfast regardless.
So guests coming to the resort to visit, do not have to pay a parking fee, only guests actually staying there. We don't make a habit of parking at resorts, but if we had a meal there and are going to MK after, it just doesn't make sense to move the car to the TTA. I know it technically not allowed, but its never for more than a few hours.You mentioned that you left your car at the GF while you went to MK - did you have any issues doing that? I know you're not "supposed" to do that (although I have left my car at both the Poly and the Comtemporary for the evening while I hopped over to MK post-dinner) - I wasn't sure if the new resort parking fees caused any new issues with doing that?
I can't wait to share, it was my favorite night.I can't wait to see what you do on your night out!
Tell me about, my last two trips have been brutal on me, stupid aging.Age... I keep finding it gets harder every trip. I've gone from "Naps???? There's no time for naps!" to "Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz"
Oh no, avoid it when you can, it may be worth a lengthy detour.This is going to be one of our biggest struggles. Not Carousel vs. Elena... I really don't think Elena will be one we need to see unless the line is just crazy short. But I know every time LG sees the carousel... oh boy.
It is so rare, I wasn't going to give that opportunity upThat's awesome! Gotta take advantage of those opportunities when they present themselves.
I don't know... that might have worked out even better!We also got one for Buzz. We tried to take a kissing picture, but it didn’t quite work out.
I hear ya. I just can't get into waiting an hour plus for fireworks. You can find a decent vantage point later. Just not worth it.It was about 7:30 when we were walking out and I noticed how crowded the hub was. With the fireworks at 9, I thought it was a little insane that the crowds were already that bad. We still haven’t seen HEA from the hub, and this insanity is why.
Hmm... maybe the crazies weren't as crazy as we thought!I guess that explains why the hub was bust at 7:30. We went right out to the viewing area.
I'm right there with you. HEA is a good show and I like what they do with the castle and everything. But as far as having that sentimental draw, I just can't even compare it to Wishes.We really liked the show from this vantage point. I am not a fan of HEA for the most part. Maybe if I ever see it as it was intended, I will change my mind, but it just doesn’t move me the way Wishes did.
That's awesome! I'm glad that they were able to have a fun night while you guys had a nice date night!I had to leave a little early to pick up the boys, so DH settled the check. The boys were having a dance party when I got to Pixar Play Zone. They had an amazing night as well. They played all sorts of games and got to hang out with characters. I am really disappointed they got rid of this already. It was a great way for the boys to spend the evening while DH and I got some alone time. The yeven got a present to take home.
