OHMYGOD JORGEN THE NORWAY GNOME. I need to meet this fellah!
I hope you had a great holiday! Yeah, it was ok. It could’ve been better, but you don’t get much with “the other people.” At least Troy is cute.

HOW RUDE OF THEM. I mean, it wasn’t like I was doing anything weird.

That’s what I’m here for! You are very welcome.

Tell me about it.

Spaceship Earth... UGH MY BEAUTY

It is one of the seven wonders of the world!

Well…… I play mini golf and I have never seen a mini golf ball that color, so it isn’t the golf ball to moi. Mini golf balls are like pink and blue, so yeah.

THEY ARE ALL IDIOTS EXCEPT LIKE TWO.

I’M BACK FROM THE DEAD.

That is a lie.

But really. I’M BACK!!! I’m sure y’all are so excited, I know. Yeah, I’m sorry it has been like two weeks since my last update. I went to D.C.—one word for ya: drama—and then I came back sick and gave Mum what I had. I know I am a great daughter. You don’t have to tell moi twice.

So anyways.

And I just have to say that our stupid computer somehow erased my document containing all of my trip tweets. I HAVE NO CLUE HOW THAT HAPPENED. So no more tweets for this trip unless I can find the document. And seriously, I have tweeted well over a few thousand times since November so I really don’t want to go searchin’ for those tweets. Sorry, but the show must go on!

So here you go!

***************

Getting to Art of Animation!


We were leaving Epcot five thousand years ago.

We looked at all of the holiday topiaries before we left.

This one is for my twin.


PERFECTION. THE END.


Bambi! Who is always thought was a girl… I am probably the only one.


Goofy and Donald.


Thumper and Flower.


GAHHHHH.




We FINALLY got out of the park and headed to the Art of Animation bus stop! We thought we should go check in and such and check out the resort a little.

HOW PERFECT IS THAT FENCE/BARRIER THING?!?!?!


Even the bus stop number sign things are awesome.


After about 10 minutes, a bus arrived and we headed to the newest Disney resort!


And pretty soon we got here!


Thank you bus thing for TOTALLY RUINING MY SHOT. DO YOU KNOW HOW AWESOME THIS WOULD HAVE TURNED OUT IF YOU WEREN’T THERE RRRRRRRR.




The start of the Christmas decorations!


Palm trees + that awesome wall + awesome weather + blue sky = ME CRYING RIGHT NOW BECAUSE I MISS IT.


Eeeeee!


AoA had an AWESOME Christmas tree. It was really cool!


The ornaments were sketches, like this one. LIKE HOW COOL IS THAT.


THE WALL IN THE LOBBY DYING.


These pics turned out like total crap. I don’t know what happened but I promise this wall isn’t all yellow and orange.


They had color coordinating Christmas decorations to go along with the wall. It was awesome!


Blurry pic but you can see that the wall isn’t all yellow and orange. Maybe my white balance was off? I don’t even know.


We checked in and had a very nice CM. I didn’t write down his name cause I’m a bad DISer. That’s moi for ya.

And I think I said this in the intro, but the reason we stayed here was because we ran out of DVC points. I mean, we could’ve borrowed some but then we would’ve have many for this coming August so we decided on paying OOP for a Little Mermaid room. It was cool though getting to see a new resort!

Before we headed to our room, we went into the gift shop/food court aka Landscape of Flavors which is SO nice, except in the mornings when it is a ZOOOOOO. But we will get to that soon.

Resort specific merchandise = ME HAPPY.


Some of the options at the food court for lunch and dinnertime.


As you can see, AWESOME OPTIONS.

Really cute cupcakes! I wanted one.


After we checked out Landscape of Flavors, we went outside and headed to our room!

WHEN WE TAKE OUR TWIN TRIP WE CAN WEAR OUR MATCHING OUTFITS AND EAT AND TAKE PICTURES OF THE MONORAIL AND SPACESHIP EARTH WITH OUR DSLRS AND AHHHHHHHHHH.

I would like to steal one of those signs. With either the number 13 or 2 please.

I’m sure Disney will be happy with you.

PRETTY TREE!!!! I like multi colors on white. Like sprinkles.
That tree is awesome. And speaking of sprinkles, I NEED TO GET SOME MICKEY ONES.

The Lion King section and a tour of our room

We headed outside via the back entrance/exit to Landscape of Flavors. When you leave there, the Finding Nemo section is right in front of you, Cars is to your right, Lion King to your left, and then the Little Mermaid is right after the Lion King section.

The Big Blue Pool!


There are three pools at the resort. Just not in the Lion King section!

Mine, mine, mine!


The buildings are REALLY cool. I think all of the family suite buildings have sketches on them. Well yeah. That would be right since the Little Mermaid room doors are on the outside.


Rafiki welcomes you into the Lion King section!


Hakuna matata! It means no worries, for the rest of your dayyyyyyysssss. SING ALONG TIME! No? Ok… FINE BE THAT WAY.




This was really cool, in my opinion. All of a sudden I stepped on the “pavement” here and it was squishy! When I checked out the Cars section two days later, I noticed the same material all around. It felt cool to walk on. We found out from a CM that it is actually recycled tires!

And plus you can run through that thing. It is only like two feet long and OF COURSE I RAN THROUGH IT CAUSE I AM FIVE YEARS OLD. Let’s be real now.

I WAS SO SCARED.


Then we arrived here!

As you can see, the lamp posts ARE SO COOL OMG. I LOVE YOU TOO MUCH DISNEY.

THEY MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE UNDAH DA SEAAAA. OH DISNEY.


THE DINGLEHOPPER.




I didn’t realize they made a statue of Mum! Why didn’t they tell us?!?!




We were in building 10 aka the King Triton building, and we had room 9627, which was on the 2nd floor if I remember correctly.

And before we move on, I just wanted to say the walk from the Animation Hall to the Little Mermaid section is like five minutes, if you stop and smell the roses and run through large things with scary hyenas. I have seen SO many people complain about how the walk is SO long and it is awful. Yes, it is awful when you are limping because you have been walking so much, but really, it’s not bad. SO STOP YOUR COMPLAINING.

We walked up the stairs to our room. I don’t even know WHY we did that since there was an elevator.

We are really lazy people.

Well at least I am.

Sooooo, we got to our room and I went picture CRAZY. There were so many details in there ohmyGOD. And if you know moi, you know how I am with Disney Details.

So let the Little Mermaid room spam commence!



That sticker is now on my binder for school. I’m cool like that.


Lovely artwork of Prince Eric. Mimi got to sleep next to that.


Oh look at my pleasant face…


The shower curtain that you can BUY in the gift shop for a hundred bucks. That is Disney for ya.


The cool shower.


The hidden Mickey in the shower! (sorry for the bad pic)


The mirror in the bedroom area.


There was a curtain with a bunch of sea creatures on it that separated the bedroom area from the sink/the loo/shower area.


There were lights on the headboards, which were nice. Where can I get one of those? Maybe I can hire someone at Disney to build one into my Haunted Mansion headboard. Cause that is possible and all.


They had Undah da Sea sheet music on the table. And no, it was not real paper. Mum thought it was. She was standing there trying to take it off and said “why won’t this come off???” Oh, Mum.


At first, we couldn’t find our mini fridge. I thought I read they had one, but we couldn’t find it. A day later, we found it. It is under the TV. We are so stupid.

We basically just chilled in the room for a while. I needed to rest my feet and I was having Stacey withdrawals, because let’s be real. I can’t go 2 hours without watching her on TV. She is just too perfect. Mimi got SO sick of her though. I was like “WHAT THE POOPS?!” She wanted to watch something else. So unacceptable. I let her change the channel for like five minutes. I’m nice like that.

After watching something other than Stacey and catching up on social medias and all that fun stuff, we headed out for a night on the town. Downtown that is!

That particular picture of the pool reminds me of All Star Sports (yes that one time I stayed somewhere else besides OKW) just one HUGE pool.

I'll join in the sing-a-long!

I'll sing anywhere. Anytime.
I would like to start a sing-a-long on one of the buses one day.

People pls. Stop complaining. I'm pretty sure my other people didn't even complain about our walk from our room to the Hospitality house / main pool. Probably an equal walk BUT EVERYTHING IS SO PRETTY SO SHUT UP.

Comforter. Too cute omg. I feel like these rooms are designed aesthetically for 5 year olds. PEEEEEEERFECTTTTTTTT

It's like my room.


LOL THE MIRROR SHOT

YAY DTD (NOT Disney Springs...btw)
