Happy New Year! Hannah and I enjoyed the shopping trip this morning! She was busy showing me everything she wants to buy next time we go.....which was about every stuffed animal or princess in the pictures.

This is why I so appreciate DIS friends! Charles is so good about putting up with my obsession but doesn't understand it. That's what the DIS is for!

I've never actually been in Once Upon a Toy. I feel like my dad would really enjoy it if he ever came to DTD with us, though!

Love the shopping pics!
Happy New Year! (officially now that it's 2013)

That contemporary resort made it's way to our house this Christmas. DH was very surprised! I found it was on sale and ordered it to go with the monorail that runs around the base of our Disney Christmas tree!

Happy New Year!
What a great start to the day, wandering DTD and window shopping. I'm looking forward to trips with my DGD.

Loving the look back. We are now in Geogia on the way back to CT... only 20 hours to go! Had a wonderful time with the band.. actually had some of the most amazing days. The crowds were crazy, but we got it all in. Brendan set up camp in Canada at 4 and we had the perfect spot for double illuminations!

Thanks to Anita and Marc for coming to meet me at a time of the day when they would normaly not be there- it was great talking to you. Also, thanks for coming to see the band march thru Epcot, I'm glad you enjoyed it... and,yes, they were treated better than at universal and received nice gifts!!

Happy New Year all, blessing and good health in 2013!!~Cynthia

It looks like so much fun to be there immersed in all the festivities and sharing the countdown with the TONS of people coming together from all over the world.
Very cool! I bet he took some fantastic pics!

Oh, there was definitely a bunch of Monster High dolls under the tree for Lexi.
I think she plans to display them in her Pop window again.
Her window gets a lot of attention from other little girls....we even see some camera flashes from inside our room.
I got her everyone on her list except 3 dolls that I couldn't find anywhere before Christmas, except on Ebay for a small fortune that I wasn't willing to pay.
A few days ago I found them 'back in stock' on Amazon so I snatched them up.
They won't arrive in time for this trip but I'm sure they will go in May.

Considering we are at 7 degrees F right now ..... 60-70 degrees looks mighty awesome!

I will put up some pics while I'm there for you .... any requests?
It's hard to come up with something you havn't taken a great pic of already.
Maybe the 2013 merchandise? or maybe the Limited Time Magic - “Bling in the New Year” dance party.
I'm excited to see what cool things they do every week.
We should get to see something new each time one of us goes this year.

I better get going on my day...I think the New Year has to start with Mickey waffles and bacon!

Thank you for all the fantastic pics this morning!!! I would love to have the Beach Club & Grand Floridian art pieces to add to my collection.
Drew said it was crazy up there! He went to ride some bike parks up there, but I don't know if he even took his camera. I think the Times Square idea came after they were up that way and figured they were so close they should just do it.

There was a Monster High decorated window at Pop in October. I am pretty sure I took a picture of it.

Picture requests? I'll take anything, of course! I always like to see the main display right as you walk into Everything Pop. I'm sure it will have all of the new 2013 merchandise on it. Anything that makes me feel warm...

Those resort pictures are cool, aren't they?

And I am instantly regretting not going to Once Upon A Toy on my last trip, it looks so cool in there and I just love those little Disney details! Ahhhh, WHEN CAN I GO BACK?!?!?!?!?!

Can't wait to read more!
I have become a pin fan in the past few years. I usually get maybe 1-3 per trip, on average.

It's a fun store to look at, even if you don't buy anything.

It's fun and safe to shop in these pictures. You can enjoy all of your 'purchases', but you never end up at the counter pulling our your billfold.

Your dad would probably like that store. He could make a sword, play with remote control toys, check out video games... Much fun to be had by kids at heart!

Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family. May your year be filled with many more blessings.
And it is safe to shop like this. You feel like you have had a big shopping spree, but you haven't spent a dime.

I think we need to collect the whole set of park icons and resorts. I have no idea what I would do with them, but it would still be fun. The girls have the Hollywood hat, compliments of Marc and Anita. They found it on sale, too.

It would probably be more Disneyish if we lived as close as you do. Hope you guys can come up to Vero in June for that pirate meal. Be sure to get in touch with Anita about that. I don't know how far out we have to make reservations for that one. You guys can discuss.

I am glad she got to do that. It's kind of funny to think that she is in the pictures of anyone who took some of that event that day, too.

Glad you got to stop by for a minute. I have enjoyed seeing Seth pictures and videos during the holiday break.

What a cool experience for the band! What kind of gifts did they get?

So glad you got to meet up with Marc and Anita.

I may have some sort of record for merchandise and 'odd things' pictures.

I thought the same thing - themed details everywhere.
I am disappointed that the game/toy tree in DTD got replaced by a regular tree. That fit in so well with the store.

Your Once Upon a Toy pictures are great! That is such a fun store. I love that they have lots of stuff out for the kids to play with while shopping!

True. It's a fun place to let the kids play, 'legally', even if you don't buy anything.


*******************************************

Thanks to Happydog, we have some pictures of our walk off of Splash Mountain. We had stalled, and they told us that Brer Bear and Brer Rabbit were causing trouble downstream. After a long stall, they gave up on moving us on via the logs and said castmembers would be around to assist us off the ride.







Proof that I was there, but glad I was still a 'Hidden MeMom'.



Needless to say, the boys were having much fun with this adventure.









And here are some of her MSEP pictures.









Buddies.

Happy New Year MeMom & Jill - it's been a while since I've been on the Dis due to a horrible surgery that led to a horrible infection that knocked me out of commission for months (literally still out of work-- but on the flip side being so sick I've lost over 25lbs and now wearing a size 2 -but not a good way to lose that much weight.) I've been reading your TR for the past couple of weeks and just caught up! Looking forward to your Oct. TR too!

Love the SM photos! I would jump on the chance to take pictures with the characters in there. I think I saw another Memom pictures during the parade.
