While we were waiting for a few more DIS friends to arrive, we decided to hit up the Tiki Room.















And then there was Magic Carpet time.



Marc looks thrilled, doesn't he?





I stayed on the ground and just took pictures.



Back on the ground, Miss Anita Wigd and some others stopped for some refreshments at Sunshine Tree Terrace. The kids watched as some people played the Sorceror game.



Do you think it captured their interest?

Apparently! Maybe he sympathizes with this being a tough year for me... ?

That was a fun, fun night! It had slipped my mind. I think the kids really had a great time meeting each other and enjoyed playing this trip. I hope we have a chance to make this happen again!

I love the towels at Disney! It's a shame I have not made the decision to snag one at one time or another. :/ Cannot stand that darn crane! So happy it is mostly gone as most of New Fantasyland is finished. Love the pictures of all the DISkids, they are friends already!

Can't wait to read more!

Oh! Another update! Must comment on that!

THE TIKI ROOM!! Probably the number one reason I need to get back to Disney since I have yet to experience the original Enchanted Tiki Room. Looks like tons of fun! to the Magic Carpets, I guess you were taking over the attraction then lol The kids are just so precious observing the SotMK, hopefully it is still there when I am back :good vibes

Once again, I'll be eagerly awaiting another update!

How fun to get together with other DIS kids! I know my girls enjoyed meeting Cayley and Avery in October!

Now I'm humming in my head - in the tiki, tiki, tiki, tiki room... Is it stuck in anyone else's head now? You're welcome!

I've got to do some cleaning out this weekend too. I have a big bag of clothes to donate and there's more "stuff" to clean out. I think in spring I'm going to have one huge sale - the kids are outgrowing a lot of toys now. They sit under storage and never get played with. Although after opening gifts (From us and santa) this year, Paige said, "I didn't really get any toys". She had a few junky toys on her list from TV commercials, but she got one or two toy-like things and her big Santa present. I told her to be grateful and get over it! Oy.

We have never eaten at pinocchio, when in that area it's Columbia harbor house- or now be our guest. I think Brooklyn was tired from carousel of progress . Oh, a glimpse of my favorite...astro orbiter.

I will be glad when the seven dwarves ride is done...it's a real pain right smack in the middle...

Oh how fun seeing all the DIS kids together. It makes me wish I'd have found the DIS back when ours were that little. It will be interesting to see how they do with any meets next NYE since they are going to be in the fun tween/teen ages. Oh Snap! I just realized they will all be teens by then. Aack!

I think I am in the minority, I think I liked it better under new management. Go figure.

I love seeing the DIS Town kids get together. So cute!

Since DIS Town is always "in the know" figure this is the best place to ask this... are there any sites that will be streaming New Year's Eve fireworks from WDW? Planning a low key evening and would love to incorporate a dose of Disney magic.

Those videos are some of the best, but there are many, many Disney youtube videos that are worth watching. I like to watch the ones that show families being surprised by trips first, then follow a few of those up with some that are done of actual trips. Just search for Disney trips, and you will have as much entertainment as you can handle!

I have had the Hallmark Channel playing in the background for a good deal of time during December. I am no one to turn the TV on much at all throughout the year, but during Christmastime, I like to see the holiday movies, or at least the bits and pieces of them that I do.

It was a fun night. My one regret for the night - not taking my camera nor my phone on Splash Mountain.

Rumor has it there might be some DIS kids at your 'birthday bash' in Nashville.

Beach towels make very good souvenirs for yourself and others. We have probably a dozen here at the house.

I am not in either camp on the Tiki Room - I like both versions.

I love that group picture you guys had. It is certainly a special one!

One of the simple things that Brooklynn got was a weaving loom set. I hope to get a potholder from her fun.

The menu at Pinocchio's has changed a lot over the past few years. We might check out Be Our Guest for lunch in March.

We are looking forward to the end of 2013! Lots to do between then and now, though.

Dave and Kathy are staying at Bay Lake, I believe, and not Poly. I don't know if they will be streaming, but I will let you know if I find out.

It's always been fun to watch the streaming from home. Check ustream and search for Disney World. There may be others filming, even if Dave and Kathy aren't.

Love the Tommorowland merchandise! That Stitch shirt is too cute!

I know that the Tiki room doesn't always get a lot of love on the boards, but I think it's fun!
