What a fun day at DHS! I really like your pins you got. One of these days I'm going to just take the leap and get into pin trading.

The story about the girl on ToT is too funny! And I could really relate to the story about the 5 year old boy. On our last trip, my son (who's 4) kicked some rocks near One Man's Dream onto the walkway before I could stop him. 2 CMs were nearby and quickly looked at him. But before they could say anything, this Momma had her son picking them up and getting a scolding.

Spent bits of yesterday and today catching up on your TR! So hilarious. I even had to read some parts out loud to Howard! Since I was reading from a LONG time ago, I didn't take notes so I don't have anything specific to comment on so sorry about that! Looking forward to more more more!!!

So I'm a major TR lurker, I read many to ease my "I'm not at Disney depression" and I've read all of yours in the last 2 weeks, I know I need to get a life but some people go to bed and read a book, I go to bed and read the DIS and usually regret how late I stay up .
Anyway, I love your reports, I love that you seem to write what you think and have such a great sense of humor. My kind of people. So anyway, just wanted to stop by and say Hi and tell you I love your reports and can't wait to read more

Ps...just read about John's arcade addiction and had to comment! I SO get your frustration. My best friend has an arcade addiction as well and going to Disney with him was a nightmare in more ways than one. He literally blew $200 something in the arcade and spent hours in there....HOURS. I just don't even know...

Lucky for me, we went with a group so I wasn't stuck watching!

I've just found your trip report and wanted to say hi . I've got a lot of catching up to do but enjoyed your introduction. I'm very curious about the cupcake ratings. Can't wait to see what your favorite is.

Me too! It's so amazing!

YES YOU DO OMG. If I could have that as my WEDDING CAKE I seriously would. They are THAT GOOD. I think I know a perfect time for you to try one!

I want a Disney pillow pet so badly! I can't even deal with how cute they are. Also, I recently learned that there is a LADY pillow pet (as in, Lady and the Tramp) and there's a really good chance she'll be coming to live with me here soon.

Omg. Homegirl was squeezing your leg? What in God's name? That is just beyond weird. She honestly didn't know she was doing it? I'm baffled.

It's so weird to think that Thomas Kinkade is dead. His paintings are unbelievably beautiful. I mean, that Little Mermaid one... I just love it.

Those games look so cute! I want to do that! Did you have a choice of scenes that you could act out?

Walt Disney. There will never be anyone like him. I just don't even know what to say about him! So much love for that man.

Can't wait for more!!!!
I'm sure she had some kind of sassy move to go with it. I now feel obligated to incorporate a little bit of that crazy mess Tierra into our routine. I CAN'T CONTROL MY EYEBROW.

I think I know what you mean...

I love love loooove my pillow pet. I think I might get another one on my next trip, because I use my current one so much that it's starting to get a little bit lumpy!

Yeah, it was strange. Like, she was getting some high thigh action. I felt a little violated.

I know, I still can't believe it either. Plus, get this- I recently saw that there was a Jungle Book painting released from the "Thomas Kinkade Studios"...meaning, someone else painted in his exact style and they just put his name on it postmortem. I thought that was kind of weird.

Yeah, you can choose from a bunch of different scenes!

He is seriously so perfect. He has had such an impact on so many lives...incredible!

Yay! Timmy, I'm so glad you are enjoying the music that accompanies the updates. It's so fun picking the songs!

Don't feel like you have to respond to everything, since I know you have tons of other comments to get through!

I'm a wee-bit obsessed with the MSEP sooo don't even worry about it... I actually cried when Mickey pointed to me and gave a thumbs up about my Anniversary pin last trip. No biggie, I'm just 5 years old.

I never saw MMY! Wompwomp. But I would've probably died seeing the Lanterns from Tangled. That was my iPhone cover FOREVER until it finally chipped and I replaced it with an Up iPhone cover. I love that scene so much.

That's highly unfortunate about the bloody man. I would have run away, too.

Okay, I know I'm going to be back in less than a month, but for some reason your AK morning is making me want to be in Disney World SO BAD right now. Though I guess considering it's Christmas week, maybe not so much, but still. I have just such distinct memories of getting to AK super early and riding EE and ahhh, I'm just wanting to be there right now!

EE is my absolute favorite, so I'm with you on Asia's decorations!

HAHAHA I love your photo of you post-ride. My hair never ever behaves in Disney World due to the humidity, and evidently in Disneyland it's the same story (we experienced ridiculous humidity there). I usually just give up mid-way through out trip and wear a hat, haha.

I would have punched that guy in the face if I'd heard him screaming like that... Well not really but I would've been close to it! UGH. Some people just seriously amaze me and are beyond ignorant. It's just annoying when they ruin a ride for other people, you know? This just seems over the top ridiculous though.

RANDOM but, little story. I basically lose it the second I hear any part of the Up soundtrack. The music just absolutely destroys me. I heard it in Disneyland at one point and held it together, so at least I've made progress from sobbing uncontrollably to tearing up a little up when I hear it.

ANYWAY, it suddenly dawned on me, I wonder who composed the music... and I had a strong feeling it was the same guy who did the music for the TV show LOST... and the movie Star Trek. AND I WAS SO RIGHT. He is the absolute MASTER as making music that will have you bawling your eyes out. UGH, that man. Anyway, that's my story, haha.

SO jealous of meeting Dug and Russell! This is one of the things I'm most looking forward to on our next trip!

Friendship boats are at the top of my love list. They are such a wonderful and relaxing way to go to DHS!

Bummer about the Carrot Cake Cookie! I totally love it, but can also very much understand why someone wouldn't, too! At least you tried it though so you can take it off your "must-do" list!

OMG The Shining. Have you ever read the book? The movie scares me, but the first time I read the book I had nightmares! It's very different from the movie but so so scary.

I love trading Vinylmation and pins! I did Vinyl trading for the first time on our trip in DL and can't wait to do it again in January in WDW!

YAY! I'm so happy I'm caught up again! Craziness of life and all, and I'm caught up! WOOOHOO!
Don't apologize, I have been MIA from the DIS for over two months! Ughh! I can't believe I've been away so long, and I have SO MUCH to catch up on!

I'm so glad I have a fellow MSEP enthusiast who relates to my obsession. There's just something about that parade.

Ohhh my gosh MMY was so amazing, especially with those lanterns! I love that scene too!

I completely agree about EE and about people who ruin rides...those two things are at very different ends of my emotional spectrum.

The Up soundtrack is SO FREAKING AMAZING. Seriously, I am right there with you when it comes to openly weeping anytime I hear it. That guy really is amazing.

I haven't read The Shining, but I'd really like to. I love Stephen King! Salem's Lot ruined my life for a solid month. I couldn't sleep at all. Like, I almost had to get put on nerve pills. Yeah, I'm crazy.

John loves trading Vinyls so much! Pins are definitely more of my forte, but it's so fun watching him trade!

Yay for catching up! Now I just need to update and go catch up on your new TR!!

Also, I had a very strange encounter after seeing One Man's Dream on our recent trip. But I haven't gotten to that part in my TR yet so I don't want to spoil it!!!

On a side note, it was my first time watching the film and I completely bawled like a baby. Not even like, a dainty tear, but full on sobbed. I am such a sap! (and my DH likes to rag me on it)

Can't wait to read more. I throughly enjoy your TRs.
HAHA John is ALWAYS like that in ride pictures! I just don't get it! He is literally completely unfazed! I don't get it!

Oooh I am intrigued by this strange encounter...

Hahaha yeah, definitely no dainty tears during that film. It's so amazing!

Thank you so much!

You definitely should! It is so much fun, and so addicting! You will love it!

Haha I think kids are going to be kids, I was just so surprised by the CMs reaction. He was like, REALLY mad. It was strange!
