The night before was a killer so Jenna and I slept in. The plan for today was to head to Downtown Disney, buy tickets to the Christmas Party, Hang with Mikkel and have a good time!
Mikkel called to let me know she just dropped Laura’s Groom’s cake off at Raglan Road and that the Trash the Dress shoot was off so she was coming to the hotel! Jenna and finished getting ready and we were almost done soon as Mikkel got there. She had yummy cookies for us!
We headed out to Mikkel’s car and we were on our way to Downtown Disney. First stop, pleasure Island. After a quick bathroom break we headed to raglan Road to see Laura. I was so bummed I was missing her wedding on Monday, but really wanted to see her.
She looked great and we got to see Craig’s grooms cake.
…Did it taste as good as it looked?
Why do I look like I am drunk ???
We took a few quick pictures and then walked around downtown Disney. Poor Jenna was soo sick!
We decided on Wolfgang Puck Express for lunch because it was near a bathroom for Jenna. Lunch was great! Mikkel even scored a free Ice Cream from our waiter and he and I had an usually long conversation about our Palm Pre phones. LOL
We headed to the Pin store after lunch and then finally made our way to guest services to get our Christmas Party tickets. Well OMG….. they were sold out. Jenna and I almost cried. We were so sad. So we started making a plan about what we were going to do tonight. We said goodby to Mikkel and we went to World of Disney. We couldn’t even think we were so upset. We went out to a bench and called Tracy to see if she could use her Cast member status to get us tickets…no luck. So we went to the Christmas Store and I got a present for Amy and one for me and Pete! Jenna got her Christmas Minnie ears! Jim Shore was there signing autographs, but we just missed him. We headed back to the busses. We were Hot, Tired and sad! While on the bus Tracy called and told us she had no pull on party tickets. There were punk kids on the bus who were there with some field trip and they had party tickets. They wouldn’t sell them to us though AND they only wanted to go see the parade and then go home to watch the Eagles game! We even offered them extra! LOL We wanted to go so bad!
We got back to the hotel and Jenna went to lay down. I went to the gift shop and then got a drink and sat under an umbrella. I called Pete and whined about the party and we talked a while. I wanted to let Jenna rest. After an hour or so Jenna called. She was awake. I headed back to the room and gave her the sour candy I bought her. I was hoping it would help. I took some pictures of the hotel along the way.
We called Vanessa to tell her we would not be at the party. She told us about a ticket broker that she used to get her tickets to the party…for cheaper then Disney was selling them! OMG….we got on the iPhone and Palm Pre and looked up where they were. We called and they had 11 for tonight left, but wouldn’t hold them for us. UGH! So we called Pete who being the wonderful husband he is, charged them on the phone for us. We hauled ass out of the room and got a cab to the place. We got our tickets and had the cab wait for us…OMG could the people in the store move any slower!! They told us there were only 3 left after we picked ours up. Thankfully Pete had paid for ours. The place closed at 6pm and we left there at like 5:55pm. We got the cab driver to take us to downtown Disney, then after climbing through bushes we got a bus to Wilderness Lodge, then a bus to the Magic Kingdom!
FINALLY we were here, the Magic Kingdom…our favorite!
There was a group of like 4 girls getting a picture taken. I went to get out of the way of the picture and at the last minute I jumped in it and smiled….The lady taking the picture laughes so hard and asked my name so she could tag me on facebook! LOL
Isn’t Jenna Cute?
It was like 6:30ish so we got a times guide and headed up Main Street to Cosmic Ray’s for some dinner. I got a Cheeseburger and Jenna had kids PB&J. She was able to keep it down! YAY!
We saw Alice near the Teacups and stopped for a picture before heading to Toontown.
We met Christmas Minnie in her gazebo, then Christmas Mickey in his living room!!
Each line was forever long! Then we stood in line for Donald Duck, but he left and Scrooge McDuck came.
We called Vanessa to see where she was and they were just getting there. It was almost fireworks time so we got a few Castle pictures and rested…my one foot was killing me!
We saw the very beginning of Belle’s Christmas show before heading to Main Street.
We got an ok spot for the fireworks, but it turned into a GREAT spot for the Parade! The fireworks were Magical!
We had to sit and wait for the parade for like an hour, but we wanted to see it.
There was this really cute Photopass guy…I snapped his picture!
We wanted to do the “Party Stuff” I mean we have both rode the rides 100 times, but you can only see the Christmas parade at the Christmas party!!! Well our spot was perfect! We tried saving seats for Vanessa, but we could never hook up so we gave up our saved seats to people sitting behind us. The parade was great. We both loved is ans squealed like little girls when Cinderella came. LOL
After the parade we went up to get seats to see the show.
Vanessa called and she came and we watched the show together. It was great! We talked and caught up and took some photopass pictures!
Then we walked up Main Street and met up with Ray and the kids.
We took some pictures and then it was over…the party was over and we headed down Main Street to the buses!
We said our goodbyes and hugged and kissed and got in line for our bus. It took FOREVER! We did not get back to our room until around 1am. Jenna had to be up at the Magical express at like 6am! Poor Girl! We laid down and we were old! Both of us, sound asleep!
