Yeah so I fell way behind. Fail. I'm like "oh hey, I'm following everyone on Twitter now, let's just forget about the Dis." (I'm also re-reading Harry Potter so that also has something to do with it.)

ANYWHO.

Zebra domes are heavenly. I still long for them. I always stumble across the recipe and I'm like "WOO! ZEBRA DOMES IN COLORADO!" and then I read it and it always seems so intimidating, so I continue pining for Disney World where I can eat instead of dream of such deliciousness.

Also: cheap, random African wine? I would LOVE some. That sounds quite amazing indeed. Add that to the list of the 7409878790 things I'm going to do on my next trip. I personally think you should've done it. (It should be noted that whenever wine is involved, I'll probably be the one urging that bottle to be opened.) For some reason, the thought of drinking in random places amuses me. Do you have a Chipotle in your area? It's a cheap, burrito place that is divine. It's really basically fast food, but GOOD fast food. Anywho, they sell margaritas. (And beer.) I've never seen anyone drink there. BUT I've always wanted to just grab some of my friends and have a couple rounds of margaritas there and basically be the funnest table in Chipotle.

You notice so much great stuff. Like the HM in the Muppet fountain. And the monkey on the rocket outside of TSM! I LOVE DISNEY AND HOW YOU CAN ALWAYS NOTICE NEW THINGS!!

You are too funny that you felt awkward about going up to your new French beau. I WISH I HAD THAT "Oh, yeah let's NOT do this because it'll probably be awkward" gene. I don't. I'm always like "Eh? What the heck? The more awkward, the better the story!" And then I would go and shamelessly flirt with the French boy and make a complete **** out of myself. So I applaud you for having some self-restraint.

And then you went and found a Moroccan boy! You are my hero. That is so perfect. I love how boys just give you stuff in WS. OMG. Seriously. That is incredible. I'm in awe of you.

Honestly, unless wine is REALLY REALLY cheap and bad, like bottom of the barrel crap, I usually like less expensive kinds just as much as the top of the line wines... new wines just as much as aged ones... so I'm not much of a connoisseur is what I'm saying. Wine is just a good thing in general is my point.
This is like my entire life philosophy. Wine IS a good thing. We would get along just swimmingly.

I'm SO GLAD you put in your disclaimer about people NOT going and just ASKING or even expecting free food. That is truly why I have not written a post about my love affair with ToT. I'm scared that people will try to exploit my love and take advantage and beg and ask and just be mean to THE GREATEST RIDE EVER! And I would not be okay with that. But maybe a disclaimer will ease my heart.

I love the Disney iPhone cases. THEY ARE PERFECT. Like Joni's Princess Jasmine one. I seriously look at the Disney Store website and drool over them all the time. The only reason I haven't dropped $40-ish on one is because I can't decide! I'm like "Oh, Rapunzel! Oh, Mike & Sulley! Oh, Boo! Oh, Russell and Dug and Carl! Oh, the Up! house! Oh, The Toy Story gang! OH, WRECK IT RALPH!" And I just want them all. HARDEST DECISION IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.

OMG your MK after dark pics! WAS THERE EVEN ANYONE THERE? I'm DYING. Booking trip for that time frame RIGHT NOW. (HA! I wish. Soon, soon, soon!)

So, sweet. I know you are having a great trip because I'm following you on Twitter. And now you have this novel when you come back to the Dis. You're welcome.

THIS IS THE TRIP THAT NEVER ENDS,
YES IT GOES ON AND ON MY FRIENDS!!!!!



WHEW. Wow. Whoa. What a whirlwind. Yeah, what has happened requires epic alliteration because I WAS STUCK IN DISNEY! And I am still (kind of) stuck in Florida.

Here's the story toned WAY down and made short:

-I was supposed to leave Disney on October 28th
-Due to the hurricane my flight was canceled. So I booked another night in Disney.
-Expedia offered me a flight on the 29th, but my family back home told me that was crazy since that was when the storm was supposed to be at its worst (and they were right.)
-My parents and I decided that it would be best for me to just wait out the storm in Disney (BEST PLACE TO BE STUCK EVER!). So eventually one night turned into 3 more nights. So I was due to check out on the 31st.
-The flights on the 31st were INSANE prices, same with Nov 1. Expedia was telling me it would be $500 and they hadn't even refunded my money yet! They STILL haven't. They say the refund was processed on the 28th and because they have to go through the airline, it is going to take 1 OR 2 WEEKS to show up in my account. They originally told me it would take a few business days (which is normal), but it's still not in my account.
-I booked a new, reasonably priced flight through Southwest that was supposed to fly today. However, the airport is on an extremely limited schedule and the other 2 nearby airports are flooded. My mom also told me that we have no power at my house and they said we won't have it for a week, so I really was not thrilled about going home to that. Luckily, the only damage to our home was that our mailbox blew off. We have family that have homes that are completely destroyed/underwater. Thankfully, no one was hurt though, and that's all that matters.
-My friend Gina, who lives 2.5 hours from Disney, offered to come get me and said I could stay at her house for a few days, since Disney was getting quite expensive (well, LBR, it's expensive ANYWAY... but all these extra days onto a trip was really adding up! Thankfully, Disney offered me a "hurricane rate" which saved me a bunch of money.)
-I am now at Gina's house, and will be here until Monday. Right now she is playing Kingdom Hearts while I update this (YAY DISNEY VIDEO GAMES!) and we are going to have an epic Disney movie marathon and go see Wreck it Ralph tomorrow. SO while I am very upset that I had to leave my happy place, getting to visit with Gina is definitely softening the "leaving Disney" blow. We were actually talking about how we should just do this every time I go to Disney. So, I'm sad but I'm happy too.


So, how was the trip?

Oh. My. God. First of all, I ended up being in Disney for 11 full days, and today was day 12. That is the longest I have ever been there and now I don't know how I can ever do a shorter trip.

It was one of the best trips EVER.

I honestly don't even know how to describe it. I feel totally different than I did before I left. I'm just so happy and feel so lucky that I got this MUCH NEEDED extended break from reality. I've really been having a hard time of it in life recently, just being really unhappy 90% of the time... and I just feel so revitalized. Usually when I'm in Disney it goes by in the blink of an eye, but I honestly feel like it slowed time down a bit this time. I feel like I was there for a month or something. The last trip didn't feel like as much of a true BREAK from everything as this one did. I feel so lucky that I happened to pick this week that caused me to have to be "Stuck in Disney" (I smell a TR title).

I did SO MUCH on this trip... but I also slowed down a bit and RELAXED!!! On the 2nd half of the trip, most days I didn't get up early to go to the parks and it was absolutely lovely to have that extra time where you don't feel like you have to crush everything in.

I was in NEW FANTASYLAND four times (YOU ARE ALL GOING TO COMPLETELY FALL OVER AND DIE WHEN YOU SEE IT. IT IS BEYOND YOUR WILDEST DREAMS.), I went to MNSSHP 3 times (I'm ADDICTED to MNSSHP. Best parade ever.), ate countless dishes at the Food & Wine Festival, met every Princess and several other characters including EUGENE FITZHERBERT!!!!!!!!! THE LOVE OF MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!, experienced resorts, restaurants, and attractions I never have before... and most interestingly, I was often regarded as a Cast Member, by not just guests, but CMs themselves. So many people asked if I was one or simply talked to me as if I was one. A few CMs told me I should be a CM. And it just really got me thinking that even though my dreams lie in film, TV, and broadway (which I need to be in NY or LA for), I might regret it if I don't spend some time working in Disney World. Even if it's only for a few months. Plus, many of the people who work in entertainment for Disney move on to broadway and other great things. Also, oddly, I met a guy not too long ago who is playing Aladdin on the Wonder right now and he's having the time of his life, so I've also thought about auditioning for the Cruise Line. I've been wanting to move to LA for a really long time (and possibly work in Disneyland), but I'm pretty scared to do this, and I think doing Orlando first might be a good stepping stone to that. I'm not saying it's gonna happen, but I've definitely been thinking about it. I have basically no credit, so I have absolutely NO idea how on earth I would get an apartment... I also have no car. So it's not like I can just move next month or something (like I want to. Ideally, I'd want to be there during the winter and spring and the move back during the summer). GAH I wish things could just be easy. I'm telling you, if I had more money and a car, I would move this month. It just feels right. Maybe I'm just high off the Disney Magic right now and this feeling will go away, but how everything went this trip... it just seems like the universe is trying to tell me something.

Or maybe it isn't. Maybe that doesn't happen and I just got stuck due to a hurricane and none of this means anything. I HAVE NO IDEA. I do know that I am not happier in any other place than Disney, and I haven't been happy where I am in life. SO Hmm. I don't know.

OH WELL, no need to make epic life decisions right now. I HAVE A MAJORLY LONG AND AMAZING TR TO WRITE! And I must finish this one as well, of course! Expect a new TR and updates for this one next week. If I actually make it home on Monday. FINALLY. Sheesh. Fingers crossed.

I absolutely can not wait to share all of my adventures with you all. This was an unbelievably, insanely, ridiculously, magically fantastically WHAM trip and it is going to be one mother of a TR. Seriously, I brought Livin' It Up to a whole new level. Just WAIT.

Following you on Twitter has felt like "cheating" since I know a lot BEFORE you actually start your TR. It truly is going to be an epic TR! So glad to hear your family and your home is okay. Seeing all the devastation on GMA this morning was just unbelievable. NY just keeps getting hit with so many tragedies...and yet it survives and thrives! Good luck getting home next week!

Seriously, Lia, it's what the universe wants. Embrace it. Go with it. Live it up. All. The. TIME.

I am glad that you have someone to stay with in FL, as I can imagine the expenses were adding up. And even if you don't move to Orlando, staying with your friend on part of your future trips sounds like a great idea!

Can't wait to read the rest of Livin' It Up! and #stuckinDisney12!

Safe travels home!

I mean, I talked to you quite a bit while you were there so you know my thoughts But I am SO HAPPY that this trip was revitalizing for you. Mine was when I went too! (Even though it wasn't nearly as long) Maybe it's this time of year or something.

But ANYWHO the only other thing I have to say is.... Everything happens for a reason. Don't second guess it.

Well I want to say sorry that you couldn't get home, but that just sounds stupid. You were stuck in Disney, so yay! I am glad though that your house didn't have any major damage. I think you could just go out and get a mailbox any day!

I actually got stuck in Disney last year because of Hurricane Irene for three days. That was awful...

I can't wait to read this TR! It sounds like one amazing trip!

I understand! Reading Harry Potter is basically one of the best things you can do and it is certainly better than my TR!

DO I HAVE A CHIPOTLE IN MY AREA. Oh girl. I am obsessed with chipotle. I actually JUST looked up the Chipotle locations to see if there is one near where my friend lives b/c I am dying for it since I haven't had it since before I left for Disney. I'm addicted. The nearest one is an hour away! The funny thing is, the Chipotles near me don't have alcohol, but the ones in NYC do.

Ahh me too! I noticed so many new things on this trip too. That's one of my favorite things about Disney, is that everything is so detailed that you'll never catch it all.

AHAHAHA NO I wish I was more like you! I'm too shy unless I really know someone and then I'm just a lunatic.

I really don't know what it is with me and the guys who work in the WS. I have PLENTY more stories to share about that, omg. So much happened on this most recent trip. Ahhhh.

I'M GOING TO SEE WRECK IT RALPH TOMORROW. I'm so excited! And I probably couldn't choose an iPhone case either. So it's good I don't have one.

I swear, that was the emptiest I have ever seen Disney. I wish I could go back in early Dec this year. It was seriously crazy how few people were there.

THANK YOU THOUGH. I love long comments. I love that people appreciate my TRs so much!

Don't worry, there are plenty of things I didn't tweet about! I have many, many, MANY stories :D

Yeah, I can't believe how bad NJ and NY got hit. I feel guilty that I got to be in heaven while everyone I know was going through that. I can't believe how many homes are destroyed. It's totally insane.

Thank you!

I wish I could! I have no idea how I'd manage it though. So I guess it has to stay a dream for now.

Yeah, it really was getting expensive. If I had days left on my ticket, I probably would have stayed, but 10 is the limit unless you upgrade to AP, so yeah. Ahhhhh I wish I didn't have to leave though. I miss it so much already.

Thank you!

Thank you Jess! I'm happy you felt that way too and that we both got to have a nice break from the stress of real life.

I wouldn't second guess it... if I could actually do it. I wish things weren't so hard! You're so lucky you get to go on the CP. Ahh I wish I could have Disney housing and transportation. It's just perfect. Sigh...

Yes, I was quite happy to be stuck in Disney! But I was also really worried about people back home so at times I just wished I could be home. Mixed emotions!

Ahh you got Stuck in Disney too! I love it!

thank you!

Cannot wait for the TR! It sounds like you got some good inspiration while you were there! I'm kinda in the same spot as you... not entirely happy with what I'm currently doing and definitely want to work in Disney. I just don't know how feasible it is, ya know?

Anyways YEAHHH.

So glad your family are safe and sound. Forget the physical things. Being from south Mississippi, I've been through the whole alphabet with hurricanes. Your family is okay so thank God for your blessings, ask for help for your neighbors, take each day as it comes and don't hesitate to go through those doors that He opens for you!

Really looking forward to your TR. DW and I are going to F&W next year for 8 days and it will be the longest we've stayed. We can't wait so give us lots of tips and tricks for F&W and MNSSHP!

Woooo #StuckinDisney 12!

I did get some good inspiration! Hopefully it will help me move forward in life. I just wish I could move there for the winter I totally know what you mean about it not being feasible. If you can manage it though, I say do it. I totally would if I could. If you feel a pull toward Disney then you should go for it.

I totally agree! I'm just happy everyone is safe. I feel terrible that my uncle's home is destroyed (they told him the Red Cross has to assess it and everything) but he's staying with my cousin so as long as they're safe that's all that really matters. I feel awful that I was in Disney while they were going through such an awful thing, I just wish there was something I could do.

Thank you! Trust me, I know ALL the ins and outs of MNSSHP and F&W... you will know everything you need after reading my TR. And if you have any questions, I'll be more than happy to answer!

Have you ever gone to one of Disney's character/entertainment auditions? Even if moving down to Orlando isn't feasible right now, you should do one and see what happens. It's not like you'd have to take the job, but you'd still get a little taste to see if it feels right, y'know?

PS: I can't wait for this TR. Obviously. I mean, it's me. I live for your trip reports. Also for Josh Dallas' single tears, constantly reminding people that *NSYNC is a thing that happened, and Mickey Rice Krispy Treats.

But mainly for your TRs.

No, I haven't! I was supposed to go to one in NYC that was for Finding Nemo: The Musical, but I got sick (THAT WAS SO UPSETTING). I think I should audition too, but I also feel like... what's the point since I can't physically move right now. It would be torturous if they were all like "Hey, we love you! Come work for us!" since I can't. The only thing I'd be able to do right now is the Cruise Line, cause they pay for all your lodging during rehearsals, give you a state room, and pay for all your food on the ship. SO THAT'S A SWEET DEAL! Except you have to be gone for either 6 or 9 months with no breaks, so I don't know how I'd do not seeing any of my family and friends for 9 months. My friend said you get to give some family members a free cruise though for a week, so in conclusion, Disney is the best. AHH.

LOL thank you. Josh's single tears are enough to fuel my entire existence. And thankfully people do remember *NSYNC, I mean, if guys are walking through Hollywood Studios singing their Chilis commercial, I think we're okay for now. And I ate my last Mickey Rice Crispie Treat yesterday and I am very very sad.

Oh wow Lia!
I can't believe you are stuck down there!

Ahhhh I can't wait to hear all about your trip!!!
It's going to be such an amazing TR!
I know what you mean about trip lengths, my last one with Darcy was 9 days but I feel like I can't ever go for less time now. EVER!! That feeling of completely letting go and leaving all reality behind is the absolute best... especially when life is not being the nicest to you. Maybe that is exactly what you need, to live and work down there for a while? Or at least do some auditions for jobs down there and see where they lead?
Being in New York in such a cut throat industry would be really hard, I'm glad you at least got a break from all of that for a while.

Auditioning for the cruise line would be awesome too. That would solve the accommodation/additional expenses problem.
My friend is a dancer on the cruise line and she absolutely loves it!
She comes home to Australia a couple of months of the year and the rest of the time she is over there. I totally live vicariously through her facebook pictures

I do believe everything happens for a reason though and that sometimes the universe does try and let us know that we should be somewhere else or doing something else. Sometimes it's just hard to know exactly what we should be doing, but that's just the rollercoaster that is life

I'm sorry to hear about your uncle's home! We are getting quite a bit of news coverage about everything that is happening over there (because not a lot happens over here) and it's insane! I'm glad everyone in your family was ok though. So crazy!

Good luck getting home!!

I know, it's crazy that when I left home on the 21st I thought I'd be coming home from Disney on the 28th and I'm still not home!

I agree... long trips are just so much more relaxing, but it's not an easy thing to do of course! Thank goodness Disney gave me the hurricane discount.

New York is extremely cut throat, people really don't understand until they get there how bad it can really be, and I've been doing it for so long! I mean, I have many great actor/singer/dancer friends who are wonderful and supportive and I've worked on a lot of things where it's been a great environment, but there are so many other experiences where it just feels like you're swimming in the ocean and the waves just keep coming and crashing you down. I have wanted a break from it for a long time, but I can't just take a break, I need to be doing something productive that I love while I do that... and performing in Disney would honestly be the PERFECT solution. If it was easy to move down here, which it very much isn't, so you're right... the Cruise Line would solve the money/moving problem. Right now, there aren't any auditions for it listed on the Disney Auditions website (except one that says they need voices for the Genie, and I don't think I'm the one they are looking for LOL) so I guess I just have to keep looking and in the meantime prepare a song to sing for them!

It's funny that you said that about Facebook too cause I completely live vicariously through my friend's pictures too. He just got to go to Disneyland for free! I can't even. Ahh. He's really having the time of his life and I mean, he loves Disney, but not as much as me. I'd just be in total Heaven (except for missing my family). He told me his life has become a daily Disney sing-a-long and I would just DIE. That sounds like the best. Ahhh sorry to ramble on about this so much but yeah. WHEW.

I'm sad about my uncle's house too. I feel terrible for him. He has been having some financial problems BEFORE this so I just hope everything works out for him. He's moving in with my cousin so hopefully he can start fresh from there and it will end up being a blessing in disguise.

Thank you!
