DHS Day! Woo-Hoo!

There's not too much I'd wait in line for an hour to ride....we tried to FP everything, but we did wait in the standby line for our first TSM ride. It was only a 30 minute wait though. I'm spoiled by the great advice and trip planning tips I get on the DIS!

LMA is a GREAT show...a must do for our family. I'm glad you enjoyed it! Great pictures!

We didn't do the Pixar meet and greet, but the pics are adorable! It's easy to tell your kids were having a blast! (HA...literally with the strapped to the rocket pics! )

Have a great day with your family. Looking forward to more!

Oh.....LOVE the new ticker!!

Ok, so i'm going to finish off our Hollywood Studios Day!!!! Go me, 2 updates in the same day!

So we were on our way to Toy Story Pizza Planet and stopped at Muppet Vision 3D which was right outside of the restaurant, then we staggered into Pizza Planet, Hot, tired and really had to go to the bathroom.







We loved this restaurant. Probably because we love Toy Story. Manny went to find a table upstairs while me and the kids went to get our food. We ate and relaxed for a little bit, it felt so good to rest.

After we left the restaurant we were on our way back to Animation Courtyard for Playhouse Disney and Little Mermaid, well, it was so crowded (more than our other days anyway) and super hot, this was the hottest day we had that whole week. We couldn't trudge along, the kids just wanted to go back to the hotel and go swimming! So off we went, we said we'd come back later??????



So back at the hotel we ate our Mickey head rice crispy treats and enjoyed them!!!



Anthony wanted me to take a before and after pic of his Mickey!! He's so funny!! The things that amuse us!!!






We were just so comfortable in the nice AC, the kids jumped around on the beds for a little bit.





Then we got ready to go down to the pool, where we spent a good few relaxing hours




We actually only left the pool because of Very loud thunder and lightening, so we came back up to the room and the kids entertained themselves. Anthony put on this very funny puppet show, we even had other kids that were walking by stopping to watch it, it was soooo cute!!!








It rained for the rest of the night, but it was thundering and lightening as well, and we were so tired from this hot crowded day that we really just wanted to relax.

We went down to the foodcourt for supper, and then hung out in the arcade for a while. It was a nice relaxing night!!!

This is Lizzie's otter, Anthony put his sunglasses on him.




Up next is our Downtown Disney Day with my surprise to the kids and Manny, and Mini golf. This was an AWESOME DAY!!!!

Gotta upload the pics though!! Oh and Emily and Lizzie got there ear's pierced and all went well, they look so pretty, i'll post a pic tomorrow!!

You guys looked liked you had so much fun! And your kids crack me up! Your DS with his glasses, puppet show and his rice crispy. And your youngest's expressions in the cue for Buzz and Woody! So funny!

Our DHS day was very similar, except for the rain and crowds part! It was HOT!! The kids look like they were having a blast even haging around the hotel room! It's nice to have an evening or 2 where you do absolutly nothing! I'm glad that as first timers you weren't hitting the parks commando and wearing yourselfs out! Miss some attractions just gives you a better reason to plan your next trip!

Wow, I come back after a hectic weekend and you've done TWO updates! Woohooo for you! Your DHS day sounds like a lot of fun and the pictures show how much your children are enjoying themselves I think it's fantastic that Anthony put on a puppet show for the girls - how sweet is he?! I'm glad you were all able to have a nice relaxing evening

What is that dinosaur thingy beside the lake? I don't recall seeing that last time

Ah, there's my friend. I love your ticker, it's very pink and pretty!!! Would you ever have thought that we would have twin tickers. Fun huh? Wait until we're counting down the days, the girls are going to drive us crazy. For anyone that didn't follow my pre trip report, Makdyn is my best friend and she has 2 daughters, so between us we have 5 girls all around the same ages and we're going to Disney together next year!!!!!

I know, 2 updates, I was so proud myself. And as for Anthony, he is such a wonderful big brother and a wonderful child. He is always thinking of others, especially his family and always loves to help me out with the girls when we're out.

And that is Dinosaur Gertie's Ice cream in that dino by the lake there!!!!

Isn't Disney wonderful! I can tell that you guys are having a blast because everybody is always smiling. It's that way for us when we go to WDW. We are all smiles all day long. Even when the other people in the parks have started getting grumpy, we're still smiling along.

I noticed that too, when the end of the day was approaching and others seemed to be getting grumpy, we were just not. We were so happy to be in Disney World that even if we were standing in a line or just hanging out we were happy. I'm happy just thinking about it !!!!!!!
