I have never experienced "Wishes", because my youngest DD was terrified of the fireworks for some reason. I was thinking about checking it out next trip, but if there's crying involved, I think I'm going to skip!

Love all the castle shots! So pretty.

And I don't wanna hear about your 70 degree weather! (insert pouty face here). We just got about 2 inches of wet slushy snow. With a nice crust of ice on top. Ick. Hopefully this will be our last one of the season.

I always cry during wishes too, but I've never gotten a nosebleed from it!

I don't want it to end! So glad you'll have a PTR to bridge the gap. Thanks for sharing with us Lisa!

I'd have been boo-hooing knowing that I was about to send her off to boot camp.

You really need to try and work it into your next trip.

I haven't seen the new castle show. Thanks for sharing your pictures. You were at a great vantage point. Where are you standing? Near Crystal Palace?
And don't forget the sweat....it was really hot!

Yes, we were standing near Crystal Palace for the show and fireworks. Is JJ okay with fireworks?

Oh but it's the best kind of crying there is! You really need to see it.

Usually, if we get any sort of winter weather, it's ice and I hate it! I can't even imagine having as much snow and ice and ya'll have.

Leave it to me to have an usual reaction to Wishes!

I'm trying to wrap up the trip report so I can start a pre-trip report. We are just over 60 days until we leave!

You two are total woosies!

You two are total woosies!

Once I had my nosebleed stopped, we talked about what to do next since the park was open for extra evening hours. During the discussion, I took pictures of the castle as it changed colors. I love the castle and want to live in it someday. Of course, I’ll have to fight Cinderella for it but I’m a tough broad and think I can take her.











After some discussion, Lacey and Jesse decided that they were going to call it a night and head back to the resort. John, Hunter and I were going over to see what the next Mickey’s Toontown, I mean, Storybook Circus area looked like. We hugged Lacey and Jesse goodnight and then Hunter told them “You two are total woosies!” We parted ways with the two of them walking down Main Street and John, Hunter and I walking through Tomorrowland to get to the new Storybook Circus area. At the time, the construction of the new Fantasyland was still in full force and they had just opened the new bathrooms there. Even the water/splash/play area was still under construction. From what I had read, one of the Dumbos was in operation but the other was not. Yep, it was running!



Hunter wanted to ride Barnstormer despite the fact that it’s a kiddie ride. Love that my teenager doesn’t give two cents what others think about him. If he wants to do something, he does it. John decided to sit this one out because he says that the ride always hurts his back.



I thought that the new queue was cute. The other was just a plain old line with not much of anything to see.

Stand right there Hunter while I throw some sharp knives at you!





The ride was pretty much a walk-on and we were boarding our plane in no time:



The ride over all too quickly, we walked over to John who was sitting on a ledge waiting for us. He asked if anybody had posted pictures of the new bathroom on the Disboards yet and when I told him that I hadn’t seen any yet, he decided that it was his mission to take a few. He hung the camera around his neck and went inside.





I know that most of my trip report readers are women but for those men out there, I have a question. Why is it considered okay for men to pee in front of each other out in the open like that? I’ve never understood that. It’s weird to me!



Inside the stall:






Why don’t the women’s bathrooms have four rolls of toilet tissue?

John came out grinning like a possum that he had taken those pictures. His mission had been accomplished.

We peeked through the mesh at the splash area but it was dark and we couldn’t make anything out. So much for taking pictures. I could, however, take pictures of the posters on the walls leading into the area:















**Up next: Where can I get a weinee at 1 in the morning?

I fully intend to ride the Barnstormer this trip (is it still called that?). I haven't been on a roller coaster in many years and I really want to do it again. (My weight was a factor before -- when the bar doesn't go down, it is rather embarrassing.) I am going to start with the Barnstormer, then do BTMRR and if that goes well, then I might, just might, try one more. Nah, I'll be proud of myself if I can just do those two!

I am also trying a water slide (at POFQ) this trip. I haven't done one of those since a very scary experience 20+ years ago. I was scared but didn't realize that what was happening to me wasn't supposed to happen until I was met at the bottom by two lifeguards and my family. I thought I came very close to flying over the side and apparently they all thought so too.

So, if Hunter can do Barnstormer, then I feel totally comfortable doing it.

First of all I was literally laughing out loud at your bread story, especially when I got to Hunter's pic, that boy had "I'm up to something" written all over his face! I'm glad you got your mama her bread, it's the small things.

Your wishes pics made me remember how awesome it is! We have missed it on our last two trips. Hopefully we'll see it this year!

I'm at John being so proud of himself for getting pictures in the new men's room. I kind of want to know why the men get so many more rolls of TP in their stalls too, but I kind of know the answer too....

I love the Barnstormer!! It's a great fast ride. I'm not a big fan of roller coasters, mostly I hate large drops. Like you I'm going to try and face my fears this year as my DS will be tall enough for Splash Mountain.

Your water slide experience sounds pretty scary!
