Fantasmic is so much fun! We don't get to see it nearly as often, because I seem to be the only real fan in the family. I was hoping to get Everett on my side, but after our last trip, I'm not sure he's going to be in the "pro-fantasmic" camp. Thanks for the pictures!

If you happen to see this before 1:30, throw some Disney magic my way. I have a formal observation this afternoon for Math. Hoping the Blow-Pops I have offered my kids at the end of the day will be enough to make them act like little angels and follow all directions perfectly...and quietly.

They were 'actively engaged', which is something principals like to see. They did pretty well. Thank you!

Blow-Pops all around - only they had to wait until after their end of the day recess to have them. Couldn't have them running around with sucker sticks, of course! Thanks for the dusting!

It was a ladies night out treat. The little ones tried to watch it last year and apparently had to leave within the first few minutes because they were terrified (however, they are absolute fraidy-cats! Mia and Kai are both scared of even the Tiki Room! ) I'm glad Brooklynn and Bella are fans! I love their sassy picture on the steets of Hollywood (even if it is past bedtime! )
I think it's worth the wait, too...

and of course scarfing down some mint chocolate chip ice cream makes the wait easier. I hope to see it again in March.

Loved the Fantasmic! pictures. I'm SO excited to see it in May. We skipped it last trip b/c we wanted to get Seth back to the hotel early the night we were at DHS. It's one of my favorite parts of Disney. I adore the story line and the music, and the ending always makes me tear up! Can't wait to see what Seth thinks about it.


Isn't that what vacation's all about?

Good to know I won't be taking Seth on this ride. He sees that, he will FREAK! He hates Bruce.

I'll chip in as long as I can be one of the bad guys (specifically Maleficent)!



That is EXACTLY what I thought.....wow, if you are checking in on Christmas Day, you'd have been making ADRs that day! We all need interventions.
Poor Bruce - he gets no love from Seth???

You can be a Ha Ha girl in Fantasmic, of course.

Glad you got some time to visit DIStown. Are you going to be here (Nashtown, not DIStown) next week?

They just line you up around the Rivers of America, the first 10 or so rows get to sit in a roped off area and then they file standing rows behind them.

What was funny is that the rope between the standing and sitting rows gets dropped and the CM just says - Everyone in font of this rope stay seated and everyone behind this rope stay standing, and then the rope is gone. People actually stayed where they were.

You can be closer to the actual action but having a seat on a bench and stadium seating makes DHS the winner in my book.
Interesting. Yes, I would prefer having seating - even just a bench.

Too bad. Maybe on a girl trip, a mom and dad get-away, or when he's a bit older.

When we last left you, it was dark, and the girls were dancing in the streets.

Now, it is morning. The girls, along with most of Pop Century's residents, are asleep.

I went out for a morning walk.





This guy was out for a morning hop.







There was quiet dancing going on here.











Work was being done on the Twister games.



I was taking pictures of classic stuff - things you've seen a million times.







And the not so usual - reflection of Mickey on the building off of the back of Mickey.



That probably doesn't get a million pictures a day taken.

I love that there is something across the lake now.










All done now, and we enjoyed our time there in October.



Fun vehicle.



Our DIS friend has a Pop building dedicated to her.

One last one. Didn't want to leave any shopping pictures out.




Hope you guys rest as easy as I plan to tonight. Since my evaluation is over - until spring, that is - I feel like a big weight has been lifted. It's nice not to be writing and rewriting a bunch of objectives tonight.

Thanks so much. So sorry about your job. I hope something wonderful comes along soon. Enjoy your trip to the fullest!

Yea for Pop pics! Makes me kinda homesick - but we'll be back "home" soon! (Valgoof, we should try for a meet. )

Glad your observation went well, MeMom. We all knew it would, but I'm sure it's a relief to have that done.

Back-tracking: A little while back, someone posted about not taking a toddler to the movies yet. If there's a participating theater nearby, she could try one of their lights-up and sound-down showings. Ours offer something family-friendly about once a month. Great for wee ones and anyone with heightened sensitivities.
