Honeymoon Trip – Day 7

I wrote this a week ago and haven’t had time to load pictures….I figure I would hurry up and add the pictures so I can move on to Christmas…….

This is the day the trip switched from a Wedding Trip to a Honeymoon Trip.  It is also one of the most anticipated days of the trip.  Ryleah was going to see the Castle!  I was going to see Ryleah see the Magic Kingdom!  YAY!  I love Ryleah so much.  When my Best Friend told me she was pregnant I answered her with “I know it’s a girl”.  It was andshe is one of the sweetest little girls ever.  We have a close bond and seeing her love Cinderella andthe Castle as much as I do makes be beyond happy! 

Pete and I woke up early and Nikki called us before we had even left our hotel.  She wanted to tell me they were already at the Magic Kingdom!  She was pretty excited.  It was sooo early, like before 8am.  The park didn’t open until 9am.  The plan was to meet at 8:30ish in front of the train station.  Pete and I were finishing our breakfast when she called so we hurried up to get tothe bus.

We ate at the Mara in our hotel and I had a bagel and Pete had the breakfast platter.  It was pretty good. 

We headed to the bus and caught the first one to the Magic Kingdom.  We waited no longer then 10 minutes for a bus during this whole trip.  Soon as we got to the gates we met up with Nikki, Jason & Ryleah, then Ryleah needed a bathroom stop.  Nikki took her and then we all stood in front of the train station.

Ryleah collected Mickey confetti and we waited for the Opening Show.

We got a Disney Photo Pass Photographer to take some group pictures.

We saw the opening show and it was great as always and then at rope drop we headed in under the train station.  We made our way up main street.

Of course we needed to stop for a few pictures with the Castle (love the castle!).

We hurried though since we had a tour plan.  The breeze way through the castle was closed so we needed to go around.  Ugh, 5 minutes waisted.  LOL  We headed to the right and went up the side ramp near Belle’s Story Time.

We got in line for Dumbo right away.  Here is where we had the longest wait of the day, about 15-20 minutes.  Ryleah was excited and so was I.  As you all know I love Disney, not so much for the stuff or atractions as for the feelings it brings.  I was so excited to see Ryleahseeing it all for the first time.  We boarded Dumbo and I sat in the Elephant directly in front of their ride car.  I wanted to take pictures of their first ride.  It was a hit!

After Dumbo we headed to Pete’s favorite ride, Peter Pan.  It is so amazing!  Ryleah enjoyed it as did the rest of us.  After Peter Pan we rode Snow White, saw Mickey’s Philharmagic and then rode It’s a Small World.  All fun rides.  We got so many rides done in the first hour.  YAY our touring plan was working!

After Small world we took another potty break, who knew a 3 year old pee’d so much!  LOL  Next up was the Haunted Mansion.  I love the new updates.  Ryleah was a bit nervous and afterwards told us she didn’t like that ride at all!  LOL

Pete and Jason wanted to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad so we headed that way.  Ryleah was too short to ride so while Nikki went to the bathroom I bought Ryleah her first Mickey Bar.  It is a Disney Classic.  I got a water and the Mickey bar and used two snack credits.  Ryleah enjoyed it so much, who wouldn’t….a yummy Mickey Bar.  I enjoyed her eating it.  I took tons of Pictures.

By now it was about 11:40am and Pete and I had lunch reservations at the Plaza Restaurant for noon.  We told Nikki and Jason we would meet them after we ate and we parted ways.  Nikki, Jason and Ryleah went to Pirates of the Caribbean and Pete and I walked to the Plaza Restaurant.  It was nice to stroll through the Magic Kingdom hand in hand. We stopped to take a Castle Picture or Two.

Ryleah fell asleep as soon as they were done Pirates so Nikki and Jason grabbed lunch at Pecos Bills.  They ate while Ryleah napped.  It worked out perfectly.  Ryleah got a much needed nap.  She still had a long day in front of her.

Our lunch was great.  I had never eaten at the Plaza Restaurant before, but I will surely return.  We had burgers and salads and free desert for being on our honeymoon.  We also met the Mayor!  LOL  It is so small in there.  I had no idea.

I gave Nikki a call after we were done (what did we all do before cell phones) and Pete and I headed over to Adventureland to meet up with them.

A quick Castle Picture…Isn’t it just lovely!

Ryleah had just awoke so I used some snack credits to get her a Corn dog and a drink.  We went to the Jungle Cruise, but the line was about an hour.  We didn’t want to wait that long so we left and went to Tomorrowland.

On the way we stopped for a few quick pictures.

Ryleah was finishing her lunch and Nikki ran to get fast passes for Space Mountain, then we went to The Laugh Floor Comedy show.

It was pretty funny.  It was a first time attraction for all of us.  I loved the inside.  The theming is great.  Buzz is right next to the Monsters Inc. show so of course that was or next stop.  Pete beat me, his score was about twice the amount of mine. 

Imported Photos 00319

Imported Photos 00325

I was really excited now because it was time for my favorite Disney attraction ever – The Carousel of Progress – Yay!  It was great!  Nikki loves it as much as I do so we knew we weren’t going to miss it.  Ryleah, not as much.  She sat on my lap and we played with the previously collected Mickey confetti to pass the time.  

Imported Photos 00328

Ryleah loves grapes and wasn’t eating much of anything so Nikki got a bowl for her to eat while we rested.  We all enjoyed them.  I love that Disney has healthy snacks all over the park.

Stitch was outside of the Carousel of Progress so of course we got pictures taken.

I love the one of Ryleah kissing his nose.  About a year before our trip I started telling Ryleahabout kissing Mickey on the nose.  I wanted her to get that picture.  Well she did.  She got the nose kiss down good.  She loves nose kisses now.  I still get them.  I guess she missed the part about how they were for characters with big fake noses.  LOL

Pete, Ryleah and I went on the People Mover for two rounds (they let us stay on a 2nd time – there is never a line for this ride) so Nikki and Jason could go ride Space Mountain.  We had fun talking about our day with Ryleah.  She loved the part where you go in the building and it is all dark.   Doesn’t Pete look cute with Mickey Confetti stuck on his face?

Imported Photos 00332

After the people mover we found the stroller and went to look for Nikki and Jason.  We didn’t get far before a bathroom break was needed.  Ryleah and I went in search of a potty while Pete hit up the Merchant of Venus and Star Traders, boy loves some gift shops.  Then Nikki found us and we lost Jason.  Ugh…LOL!  Finally we were all together and we headed to Toontown by the secret path next to the train tracks.  We went in Minnie’s house and Mickey’s House.

Imported Photos 00337

They were kinda crowded so we went through pretty fast.  Pete and I got a drink while Ryleah, Nikki & Jason went on Goofy’s Barnstormer.  I called my sister and caught up on things.  I hate being out of contact with my family, that is why we vacation so much together.

After the roller coaster we rode the train to the front of the park.  We had reservations for Tony’s Town Square for dinner, it’s a must do each trip for us.

They just don’t have enough sit down restaurants in the Magic Kingdom.   In the camera shop Jason found the DVD’s he needed for their video camera.  He ran out in the morning.  He didn’t want to miss the parade or fireworks.  Dinner was so good.  I love eating at Tony’s.  Pete and I had the Steak, Nikki and Ryleah had spaghetti and Jason had Chicken Parm.  Ryleah didn’t care about eating very much, but we all enjoyed a break.  I think a sit down meal while touring a the park is so great, you get to eat a good meal and rest.  It is so relaxing after going full force all day.

When we came out of Tony’s it was dark.  That meant parade time!

Pete and I went to save seats and Nikki and Jason went to look in some stores.  Jason joined us and Nikki took Ryleah for yet another potty break.  The bathroom in Tomorrowland was closed for cleaning so Nikki had to hussle all the way over to the bathrooms near Casey’s.  They made it back in time to wait for about 10 minutes for the parade.  Ryleah wanted to hula hoop in the street with the kids so bad.  There wasn’t a free hula hoop, but she was so excited just watching and waiting for one to open up.  Well once a little girl got hurt a hula hoop opened up and I rushed her out to it.  LOL  She tried her best to pick it up with both hands.

We got a good laugh out of this.  Then she dropped it and some one else snatched it up.  Ryleah likes sharing and went up to a little girl and asked if they could take turns.  The little girl said sure (even kids are nice in WDW).  Ryleah only got a quick turn then it was parade time!

We heard the music change and got into position.  YAY the parade was starting.  I love the Spectomagic so much.

Alot of the princesses pointed out my ears.  Little congratulations were given to us all day long.

It was wonderful!  Ryleah loved the parade and waved until I thought her arm was going to fall off.  After the parade we moved over towards the middle to get a spot for the fireworks.

Imported Photos 00461

Poor Ryleah was so tired she fell asleep before they even started.  I am so glad we went to see the fireworks on the boat the night before, atleast she got to see Wishes once! 

Imported Photos 00516

The fireworks were delayed for almost a half hour.  A medic helicopter went over the castle once, then again 15-20 minutes later.  I guess that was the hold up.  What did I do during the wait? Take pictures of the Caslte of course!

Then Wishes started.  It was magical.  I tried to get some pictures, but I didn’t have my tripod so most are pretty shaky.  It was pretty great though.  I was seeing one of my favorite things with some of my favorite people.

After the fireworks Pete and I went to take some pictures of the castle and Nikki and Jason and sleeping Ryleah headed to the exit by way of a store or two. 

Imported Photos 00517

We ran into them again near the exit and we all walked out together.  They headed to the bus for the Pop and us to the Animal Kingdom.

Imported Photos 00522

Today was one of my favorite days ever.  Ryleah LOVED it and the whole day was pretty perfect!

When we got back to the hotel I crashed and Pete went to get a drink.  Again I didn’t see him until the next morning!

Wedding Trip – Day 6

This morning was bittersweet.  Our cruise was coming to an end, but a whole vacation still awaits!  We got up and got dressed in the clothes I had laid out the night before and we packed our carry on bags and off we headed to breakfast!

You have breakfast in the restaurant that you had dinner in the night before, so we showed up at Animators Palate.  We had a tasty breakfast and then said our goodbyes and that was it, it was over!

We made our way out to the terminal where we grabbed a bag guy and collected our bags and headed out to meet our private vans for the trip to the airport and our after cruise hotels.  Pete’s parents took on of Laura’s bags by mistake which caused a whole mess of Laura looking for her bag and us needed to get back inside to let her know we had it outside.  UGH!  It was a mess! 

The vans were here and we split up, those going to the airport on one van and the people staying in Florida in the other.  We got to ride with Ryleah and Dakoda and their families.  It was nice.  We dropped everyone off at the airport, but they were so early they couldn’t check in.  They had a long day waiting at the airport.  It was not fun and I really feel bad for them!

We headed to Pop Century to drop Nikki, Ryleah & Jason off.  Crystal and her family got off at the airport and rented car so they could visit their family in Florida.  I hugged and kissed Ryleah and told her I would see her for her special dinner!

When they got out of the van it was quiet, weird quiet.  We had not had quiet the whole trip.  errie. 

 Animal Kingdom Lodge

We got to the beautiful Animal Kingdom Lodge and checked in and paid for our meal plan.  $850 dollars poorer we went to get something to eat.  The food court was tiny, we are Value Resort people with it’s big bustling food court and here it was small.  Don’t get me wrong it had EVERYTHING you needed, just on a smaller scale.

Animal Kingdom Lodge

We were tired but since our room wasn’t yet ready we went to lay on some pool loungers near one of the hot tubs.  It was great.  I even fell asleep for a bit.

Our plan for the day was originally to head to Epcot, but since the room wasn’t ready we just hung out at the hotel.  I called the card they gave us and YAY our room was ready.  We headed to it.  Now they were doing construction on the main building at the AKL and it was a pain to navigate all around it everyday.  The hotel was nice, but I doubt I would want to stay there again.  It was the nicest hotel I have ever stayed it, but it was missing something.

We entered out room to find a Mickey Towel Animal.  So cute.  We had an awesome room.  Big bed, sofa, flat screen, mini kitchen and a great bathroom.  We popped in the video that Jason did from the wedding and snuggled up in bed to watch it. 

Imported Photos 00013

Around 3:00 or so we got up and got dressed.  We had dinner with a prince tonight, the Boss of all the princesses according to Ryleah.  We made the long trek to the buses, but then realized it was getting late so we took a cab to the Grand Floridian.  Ryleah met us in the lobby and had a Christmas Ornament for us.  It was so sweet.  It said Just married on it and was topped with Bride Minnie and Groom Mickey. 

Imported Photos 00033

We checked in for dinner and had about a 20 minute wait until 1900 Park Fare opened for the evening.  We were excited to eat with Cinderella, Prince Charming, Anastasia and Drusilla, and the Evil Step Mother!  We were led to the No. 2 table (the second table that the characters visit) and gave our drink order.  We headed to the buffet.  OMG was it so good.  It was the best buffet I have ever been to.  I usually hate buffets, food sitting around waiting to be scooped up, germs, etc.  YUK.  But in WDW the buffets are small and they are refreshing constantly.  Ryleah got a plate and we told her she needed to eat before the characters came out.  She started eating and then we heard music and an announcement and out came Prince Charming.  He was good and came to talk to her.  She asked him where Cinderella was…Cindy is the only one she really cared about!  LOL  After the Prince moved on we made her eat some more so Cinderella would come.  Out Came Cinderella then every ten minutes or so someone new came out.  We finished up just around desert.  OMG  the Chocolate mouse was to die for.  Yummy!

Pete and I got crowns for just being married (mine said Happy Birthday…LOL).  Ryleah snatched mine up for a while.  She also enjoyed our cup cake.

The best part was Cinderella danced with Ryleah.  Ahhh she was in heaven!

Imported Photos 00066

We headed to the gift shop to look around after dinner, what the guys and Ryleah didn’t know was that we were killing time until our surprise (We couldn’t check in for the surprise until 7:15pm).  Ryleah had a potty break and Pete and I convinced Jason that pin trading would be fun.  He bought his lanyard and a pin and was all set.  Nikki came back and the boys went upstairs to look in another store and Ryleah, Nikki and I had a seat in the lobby and listened to the piano player or the big band.  They alternate every 15 minutes.  Ryleah made each one of us get up and slow dance with her.  It was so cute.  The guys still had no idea why we were just hanging out in the lobby!  LOL  

Slow Dancing

Grand Floridian

It was starting to get dark so I suggested a walk around the resort with a stop at the Marina to see if we could see the fireworks.  ekk!  As we walked up to the marina Jason jokingly said “Oh boats, wanna take that one out?”  I looked at him and replied “Yeah, lets go on a boat ride!”  Well at this time we saw TJ and family from our cruise and we walked over to say Hi.  Pete shook hands with her husband and said “Weird seeing you here.”  Still no clue!  Then the boat captain walked up to me for me to sign off on the bill for our FIREWORKS CRUISE!  Finally the guys got it.  We got a life vest for Ryleah and headed to the pontoon boat.  I had arranged for TJ and Peggy from the DisBoards and their families to share the Fireworks cruise.  We all got onboard and were given blankets and snacks and drinks.

It was so wonderful.  We had about a 45 minute tour of Bay Lake and we Hunted Gators and checked out the old River Country. 

Looking for Gators

We had a great tour guide.  We found a good spot and tuned the radio so we could hear the music.  We had the best seat to enjoy the fireworks.  The pictures didn;t come out to good because we were on a floating boat, but I hope the video is better.  It was magical.

After the fireworks we went on another tour and then got to see the Water Parade.  So Awesome.

Ryleah fell asleep before we docked.

After the cruise we made way to the monorail.  We took it to the Magic Kingdom and then transferred to buses back to our hotels.  We had a big day tomorrow! 

When we got back to our room I went right to sleep while Pete went down to get a drink.  He ran into a Fraturnity Brother of his that he had not seen since college.  I just slept!  LOL  It was a great 1st Day to our Walt Disney World Vacation.

All Pictures from DAY SIX HERE!

Wedding Trip – Day 5

Sorry it’s taken so long for this update….Been a busy girl. 

Today was our last full cruise day.  We were so looking forward to a little relaxing.  Not so much of that happened, but it was a really nice day. 

We slept in today….Finally it was all catching up to me.  We got up and showered and got dressed for our brunch in Palo.  Since Pete didn’t have any shoes (UGH!) the other big feet boys on the ship lent him some.  He ended up wearing Jon’s shoes….THANK YOU!  Brunch was amazing.  It was funny that we were seated by Michele and Steven.  They had made reservations when they boarded the ship and they just so happened to be for the same time as ours, or maybe a little sooner.

Imported Photos 01143

Palo is so fancy.  There are no menus.  The waiter walks you around and shows you all they have to offer in the way of sample plates.  It is great, you can actually see what you are ordering.  We had a great view from our seats.

Imported Photos 01145

1st we sampled the buffet and Pete tried raw Tuna and Caviar.  oh la la…Nope he didn’t like either one.  LOL

We also had great drinks, they were Orange Juice and some alcohol…mmm so tasty.  I was getting tipsy after one.  LOL

We ordered a Flat Bread (aka Pizza) as a starter in addition to the buffet choices we made.  It was very very good.

For our meals I got Eggs Benedict and Pete got Chicken Parmesan.  Well mine wasn’t that good so I switched and got some Chicken Parm as well.  That was really good.

But desert is what we were really waiting for.  OMG the choises  were endless and each one better then the one before.  Loved the Desert Bar!

Sadly our time at Palo was over.  We extra tipped our server because he was excellent then we headed to look around the ship some.  We took some pictures before running into P. Daddy and Mama Reese (Pete’s Parents).

We stopped and chatted a bit then moved on.  We saw Julie getting her hair braided.  She was such a good girl.

On our way back to our room we ran into Chip and Dale.  DO you know which one is which?  Chip has the black nose, like a chocolate chip!.

We needed to pick up the gifts we were giving out for our Fish Extender Exchange.  So we stopped by our room. Guess what we found? Another plate of goodies. We got so spoiled on this cruise.

Imported Photos 01253

Before we headed out we stopped by and said hi to Miss Alyssa.

Imported Photos 01257

We got to tour the whole ship giving out little cans of Old Bay. We put them in all of the Fish Extenders that lined the hallways.

Imported Photos 00346

Our last delivery was at Kayla and Karen’s room.  They were hosting a meet, a “Meet in the Sweet”!   They had an awesome suite and were so kind to host the meet.  There were snacks and lots of Disboard friends.  One of whichI spent a long time talking to (hi TJ), but we couldn’t talk about the “Surprise” planned later in the trip….boy was that hard!  LOL

We didn’t get to stay at the Meet long because we needed to run and pick up our wedding pictures!  EKKK! Look who we saw on the way to Shutters.

Imported Photos 01271

We made our was to shutters and were given the pictures…this is when I saw that the largest picture package, the one we were buying was only including 75 images on a CD.  Well the documents I had received before we cruised stated that ALL IMAGES were included on a CD.  I asked them about this and they told be the packages had changed.  …… OH NO…I was getting all the images!  I talked to the manager and then my wedding coordinator.  I was not backing down!  They ended  up calling stateside to speak with my on land planner and she did verify that I was sent the older information including all images.  They reluctantly agreed to include them all.  I ended up with two CD’sworth!  Go Me Go Me!  Not they sent us back to our room with over 300 pictures and we had a few hours to pick which ones we wanted in 8 x 10 size and in 5 x 7 size.  Talk about pressure!  We literally spent 4 hours locked in our room picking pictures.  We got to pick 15 8×10’s and 75 5×7’s, plus a few pictures for the folios.  NOW being the honest people we are we didn’t keep any extras although we really could have.  Once we returned our choices they threw away all the ones we didn’t pick and handed me the stack of 5×7’s we did pick.  They had to enlarge the 8×10’s but then when they gave us them they included the 5×7’s of the ones made into 8×10’s.  We also got lots of stock pictures of the ship! 

After the picture mess we had to start packing.  All of our bags needed to be packed and in the hall by 11pm.  I got our suitcase out and the wheel was missing….to make matters worse I ripped my dress on the whole where the wheel should have been!  Ohhh I was MAD!  I called the front desk and complained.  I had to take the suitcase down there and they were going to try to repair it.  We dropped it off and they ended up giving me a $55 credit for my torn dress. 

We headed to the show….Disney Dreams…ahhh it was so wonderful.  It brought a tear to my eye.  Most of us sat together tonight.  It was so neat the way we all would not plan on meetings, but everytime you turned around you had a friend nearby.  We were like the  last to get there and found everyone all together in the center!  YAY!  I loved seeing the kids and their reactions.

After the show we ran up to pack some more and then it was dinner time.  I stopped by the photo department to drop off our picks and Pete went to get our brand new suitcase from guest services.  They couldn’t fix the old one so we got an all new one!  Go Disney Service!

Dinner tonight was in Animators Palate.  This is one of my favorite restaurants on the ship, but our table location wasn’t the best and we didn’t get to experience the full effect!  We will have to try again in November!

After dinner a group of us had planned to go to Karaoke, but that didn’t pan out.  I also had plans to relax on deck with Shannon, but she headed to bed.  I rushed to finish my packing and then hit the bed.  Another long long day was over!  I was so sad, we had to say goodbye to all our friends and family tomorrow.

Pete ran up to get a soda and Laura came over to chat a bit.  Then I snuggled into bed with my iPod and my wedding pictures (oh no there were not getting packing in my checked luggage!) and drifted off to sleep. 

Pete woke me up when he got in and we rehashed our whole trip and talked aout how very happy we were!  I fell asleep with his arms wrapped around me!  What a great wedding trip!

ER

ERis one of my most favorite shows.  This is the last season and I am kinda sad about it.  I have been enjoying this season sooo much!  Tonight I watched an episode from two or three weeks ago.  Here is a Link to the recap.  I sat here with tears in my eyes.  One of the main parts of the story was a man came in who was being harassed.  He was accused by a 12 year old student last year of sexual abuse.  He claimed he didn’t do it.  At one point the doctor treating him gets so angry when he sees him talking to a child.  The harasser comes in and beats him to a bloody pulp and Brenner doesn’t stop him.  The doctors of course save him.  Morris, my favorite Doctor talks to Brenner and it turns out Brenner was abused as a child.  As he is telling Morris about how the abuser gains trust and ends up hurting the child, there is flashes to the teacher talking to a little girl and asking for her blog and then moves in for a hug and gets a satisfied look on his face (made me want to puke)!  All along this teacher swore he didn’t do what he was accused, to the doctors and the other people around him, but he totally did.  Kids do not lie about this sort of thing.  Kids do not make this stuff up and anyone who believes they do is just a plain moron!  This episode really got to me.  But on a lighter note watch ER this season.  It is really good!

This Just In……..

Oh Wow…Look at this……….

Lisa’s Big News

Happy Birthday

Today is Walt Disney’s Birthday!

Walt Disney

 

Happy Birthday Walt! 

Walt Disney founded the animation and entertainment empire which still bears his name. He began as a cartoonist in the 1920s, creating Mickey Mouse and eventually moving from short films into much-acclaimed animated features like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) and Bambi (1942). Later Disney expanded into live-action features like Treasure Island (1951) and then into television — the family-friendly variety program The Wonderful World of Disney was a prime-time staple from 1954-83. During Disney’s life his studios won 48 Academy Awards. In 1955 Disney opened a theme park, Disneyland, in Anaheim, California; it was an immediate hit and became the public flagship of the Disney empire. Other Disney theme parks have since opened in Florida, Tokyo, France and Hong Kong. The Disney empire also grew to include Disney Radio and TV’s The Disney Channel.

Disney holds the record for career Academy Award nominations, with 64… Despite persistent public rumor, Disney was not cryogenically frozen or buried under Disneyland after his death; he was cremated and buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.

I Am Going to Be Famous!

I just got an email that a publication wants to use some of our wedding pictures!!

It is still hush hush so I can’t really talk about it.  I checked with Laura and Steven (they are the ones who took the aforementioned pictures with my camera during the wedding trip) to make sure they would sign the photo releases.  Good thing they both said yes or I would have went to jail for forging.  LOL  I will let you all know when it is released!!!
