You were quite disrespectful to the performers that were playing Eric and Ariel. For someone that loves Disney and wants to be a CM surely you should support people who are living their dream, rather than bashing people on what they look like. Performers work their whole life to achieve working with a professional show.

Well yeah! I’m tellin’ ya. August is going to be BAD.

Third, the whole fairy thing was kind of boring. Although, I think CJ really liked Tink. He kept waving at her.

The fairies were dumb! He LOVED Tink. A lot.

Good pics Meg. We had a fun day...now, don't forget that $5 you owe me!
Thank you and we did!
What five bucks do you speak of?

So this weekend we are going to the NJ DISmeet!!!! I am so crappin' excited and we are driving down tomorrow afternoon and I get to get out of school early and YAY! If any of my readers are going to be there, PLEASE LET ME KNOW EVEN IF YOU ARE A LURKER! I would love to meet you (: And I will be tweeting from it all weekend long so make sure you are following MOI (@LifeDis)! So yeah. Enjoy this update!

Eating and shopping at the place THAT IS NOT DISNEY SPRINGS - part 2

After we finished up our wonderful meal, we walked to the pin trading shop thing.

Excuse me.

After we finished up our wonderful meal, I LIMPED to the pin trading shop thing. And Mum and Mimi were like five miles up ahead.

Now that is more like it.

Why is Donald mad when there are FIVE MILLION PINS BEHIND HIM?!?


This is just too cute.


2013 pins! (which were new to us then)


I don’t think I got anything there. Who knows though. I might’ve traded. I might’ve bought a pin. IDK.

Pretty bokeh Christmas tree.


I limped myself to Tren-D aka the place where they take all of your money away.

IT IS SO PRETTY IN THERE.


HOW CUTE IS THIS OMG.


I WANT A HARVEY BAG SO CRAPPIN’ BAD. LIKE SOMEONE BUY ONE FOR MOI AND I’LL LOVE YOU FOREVER. I’m not kiddin’ around here people. I give you awesome reading material and you should give me something in return. Like a Nightmare Before Christmas Harvey bag. I’m serious.


ME WANT THAT LAMP LIGHT THINGY.


I saw a Dumbo shirt in here (didn’t take a pic SORRAY) that I really liked but I decided not to get it. I figured the 60-70 Disney shirts that I had in my closet back in good ol Massachusetts was enough.

That number has increased since then but it’s not like I care.

Hi, my name is Megan and I am obsessed with Disney. Bye now.

SOoooooooooOOOOOooo, from Tren-D—where I didn’t buy a THING. OMG how is that possible. I don’t even know. Holy poops—we headed over to World of Disney, which was PACKED. On a Monday night. (right? Still on Monday? I think so…). But I would expect nothing else from it being Thanksgiving week and all.

We entered through the door where you have the pirates on one side and Buzz is hanging from the ceiling. If you have no clue what I am talking about, it is the dude’s room.

So we knew that the three of us would get separated from it being so crowded and all. So we made a plan to meet back in the dude’s room under Buzz (foreshadowing…) at 9:15, aka about 35 minutes from that point. We thought that would be enough time and it was.

So we headed our separate ways and holy lord. IT WAS PACKED. And it didn’t really help that I couldn’t dodge crowds that much due to the whole limping issue.

Horrendous pic probably because I wish being pushed by children, the limping, and I was trying to hold all of the things I was buying.


Blurry pic of Christmas stuff.


How. Cute. Is. This. Like, I haven’t seen the whole set before! They should do that for all of the other dolls.


HEAVEN ON EARTH.


But really. Me need even though I have one EXACTLY like this, minus the mickey heads.


THEY INCLUDED POCA AND MULAN HOLY POOPERS. LOOK TWIN!!!


Does anyone know what this is? I have never heard of it before. (sorry for the blurry pic).


Why can’t I be little again and become a princess? Who really cares though because I AM BECOMING A MERMAID THIS SUMMER.


This pin is perfect.


I checked out at about 9:05. I got a Mickey shirt (cause I needed it), a Christmas pin, a postcard for my bulletin board, pens for some people at school, and a children’s plate that Mum made me put back. I knew why.

Mrs. Claus bought it for me! THANK YOU.

I sat down in the corner of the dude’s room on the floor because of the pain in my legs. I could barely take it much longer and I just wanted to go back to our room and rest it.

Well turns out I got to rest it in World of Disney for a good 30 minutes.

Mum paid for the things she got and we waited.

And waited.

And pretty soon it was about 9:35 and Mimi was NOWHERE to be found. I know it is the largest character store in the whole world, BUT COME ON NOW.

So she called at about 9:35 and was wondering where we were.

RIGHT UNDER BUZZ WHERE WE SAID WE WERE MEETING.


She was like “Oh I am in the wrong room and I was waiting for you guys!”

I swear to god my grandmother is losing it.

She was in like the jewelry section. TOTALLY DIFFERENT PLACE.

Dear lord…

So she found her way to the dude’s room and I was like “DO I HAVE TO GET UP?”

But then Mum mentioned ice cream from Ghirardelli and I wasn’t limping anymore.

DISNEY MAGIC DUDES.

I stood right up and went over to Heaven.


We got in line and once it was our turn, I ordered the cookie bottom sundae.

“We are all out of cookies.”

I was heartbroken and that just ruined the trip even more. LIKE HOW COULD THEY BE OUT OF THEIR DELICIOUS CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES?????

So I ended up having to get the brownie sundae.

I know you guys feel so bad for me.

Mum got the peanut butter sundae and Mimi just got a coffee.

I told you guys my grandmother was weird.

I found a table outside kinda near Guest Relations.


We got our number and waited for my cookie bottom sundae that never was and Mum’s sundae.


Our ice cream came out in about 10 minutes and it was kind of melted. Whatever… Still awesome though!

Here is my brownie sundae.


And Mum’s sundae and holy crap the pic came out so bad.


We ate our ice cream, Mimi drank her coffee (I don’t even know), and I made a total mess.

After we finished, I was ready to go. I just wanted some sleep and to rest my leg. So I followed behind, limping, and we made our way to the bus stop. They had a pin board out there but I didn’t see anything good and plus our bus was JUST pulling up so I fast-limped to get it. And OF COURSE, no one folded up their strollers. Excuse me while I pull out my hair.

Oh wait. Here is a random picture of a window display in DTD. You’re welcome.


Once we got back to AoA, we got a drink in Landscape of Flavors and took what seemed to moi, as the longest walk EVER. I blame the limping.

Once we got back to the room, I crashed at about 11.

We’re twins.

NJ DISMEET for GKTW - PART 1!

Several real life updates comin’ your way. I don’t think I will finish them all tonight, so if I don’t, they will be up probably tomorrow. I could get them all done if I didn’t have math homework BUT NO. My idiot teacher likes to give us work on stuff that she teaches 5 minutes before the bell rings.

Fun times.

Anyways. You all should know we were out of the state this weekend. Sadly, not in Florida, but it was Disney related so yeah!
We went to the New Jersey Dismeet this past weekend (April 26-28th) to raise money for Give Kids the World, which is an awesome organization. If you are not familiar with GKTW, it is similar to Make a Wish.
This was my second big Dismeet and Mum’s third and OMG IT WAS AMAZING, but I am getting ahead of myself now.

Let’s back up to Friday, the 26th.

I went to school. Mum to work. Seriously, this day DRAGGED. And then my idiot math teacher gave us a bunch of homework for the weekend that I didn’t understand and I was just a little busy. So last night I got around to it. Didn’t get it. YAY MATH!

I got dismissed from school at 12:15 so we could leave. NJ is about 4 hours from us, and that is with no traffic. Oh traffic…

We went to the post office before going home and then we had to get last minute things together and say bye to the cats. They hate us.

We headed out the door and loaded everything into the car, and we were off!

I put on the DISunplugged and we drove for what seemed like forever, until we got to New York City.

And let’s backtrack a minute here.

There was a live podcast recording this weekend with most of the DISunplugged team. Some of you might not be familiar with the podcast, but Pete (duh), Corey, Julie, Teresa, Kathy, Shaun, Craig, and Dustin came. And Ferris and Finley made an appearance! Cutest. Kids. EVER. But we will get to that soon…

So…. Once we got to NYC, traffic. Traffic. And more traffic. And have I mentioned TRAFFIC?!?!?

We were just stopped on the highway.

FOR ALMOST TWO CRAPPIN’ HOURS. I was about to lose it. It was so much fun. And then I heard some bad words come out of my mother’s mouth because of the drivers in New York. But I mean, we aren’t much better in Boston. But when you get cut off… Well that is another story.

It was a lot of fun to say the least.

Note to self: Never go over the George Washington Bridge again.

This was my view for all of that time.

How lovely, I know.

And then some guy was in the middle of the road selling Beats headphones.

I’m sure they were real.

After we FINALLY made it over the GWB, we got into NJ and then got gas at a rest stop. They pump it for you AND they wash your windshield. Not bad!

Once we got back on the highway, we HIT EVEN MORE TRAFFIC.

And seriously. We had about 5 minutes to spare. There was no way we were going to make it on time. I mean, it was almost six and game night started at seven. At the hotel we were staying at. AN HOUR AWAY. So basically, we couldn’t afford hitting even more traffic. THANKFULLY, it was only about 10 minutes but still.

Once we finally got to the Hilton Garden Inn, or whatever it was called, we ran inside, checked in, and ran for the bathroom so we could make it for game night.

7:05.

HOW RIDICULOUS WHEN WE LEFT AT ONE.

And we never had a real dinner. My dinner was like 5 Twizzlers. Awesome, I know.

We checked in at registration, got our name tags, and everything we would need for the weekend.


We went inside the room game night was being held and they had cheese, crackers, fruit, etc. Some snacks to hold you over. Thank God.


After we ate and said hi to everyone, we sat down with some people just in time to play Name that Tune!

We sat with two other women at some random table in the room.

We got pieces of paper with spots to fill in the song names and we also had bonus questions on those songs. And we had to include the movie AND the name of the song. And for the park music, we had to include the name of the ride or area and what park you can find it in.

We had no clue what to call our team, so we came up with this. We are original and cool, I know.


Some of the songs were pretty hard, but our team did pretty well! Think we got 95 points and came in 5th place. Kathy and Teresa’s table tied for 1st place and they were called the Rowdy table… They kill me.

And speaking of the podcast team, Julie was dressed up in her Snookie outfit! Mum thought she needed more padding though…

After Name that Tune!, it was time for Bunco, which I was not familiar with. I don’t know if it is a NJ thing or what, but I did not get the rules, so we didn’t play. I just know it involved bells and dice. That is all.

So while everyone was playing Bunco, we ate.

WHAT ELSE IS NEW.

We had Mickey cookies and these AMAZING cake truffle balls made out of Oreos. HOLY CRAP. They were amazing and I had about ten.








Sorry not sorry for all of the dessert food porn.

After everyone finished Bunco and we finished pigging out, IT WAS TIME FOR THE TASTYCAKE CONTEST!

Now, I have never tried a tasycake, and after this contest, I never want to.

OMG.

Pete recorded this video of the results. Sadly, the stream didn’t work for when they were actually eating the cakes, but don’t worry. I CAPTURED IT ON CAMERA.

Here is the video: http://new.livestream.com/TheDIS/events/2060898

“Dustin looks like the creepy uncle in the background… HEY LITTLE GIRL DO YOU WANT A TASTYCAKE?!”

I just love Pete.

And Dustin.

MOVING ON NOW.

Before the contest began, people could sponsor the people in the contest. We raised $1700 JUST WITH THAT. DISERS RULE. THE END.

Getting ready…




Eww. That is all.




Kevin won (in the red and you will meet him later!) and he ate 10 TASTYCAKES.

Excuse me while I throw up.

After the Tastycake contest, we went over to Kathy’s table and talked to her for a while. (you met Kathy in this TR, FYI!). We basically chatted about cameras, Disney, and all that fun stuff. She is so nice! We said goodbye and then headed out to go to our room.

We went out to the car and got our luggage and went up to our room.

We were on the 3rd floor and we were like 5 miles away from the elevator.

If you haven’t noticed, I am lazy.

When we put our key card in the little slot in our door, the green light didn’t come on. Instead, It was orange and we couldn’t get in our room. Oh yay. So lovely.

So we had to go ALL the way back down to the front desk and got our new key cards. Then this young couple asked us what Dis meant. I think they were drunk.
They were like “Does it mean daughters? Dancers?”
I don’t even know.

So we explained to them what it meant and said how we were raising money for GKTW. They thought that was so cool and seemed way too over excited about it.

Like I said. I think they were drunk.

Then I noticed we didn’t have our bag with stuff in it for the meet and our name tags so I had to head back to the room to get it. When I came back, Mum was talking to Pete and Dustin. They thought we just got in. Well Shaun and Craig did! Thankfully, we only had traffic and not flight delays.

Kind of the same thing, but not.

We told Pete we loved the show and talked about the NE Dismeet in June. He was very happy they weren’t staying in Springfield.

I don’t blame him one bit.

We said goodbye and headed BACK up to our room and HALLELUJAH the card worked.

Here is our room if you wanted to see. You kind of have to now.


Kind of like a little villa!




Mum was excited over the Bath and Body Works soap, shampoo, etc. I don’t even know.


For the rest of the night, I spun around in the desk chair. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN and I almost hurt myself a few times. And by that I mean like totally flipping the chair over while I was in it. That’s moi for ya. And I took some pics cause I’m a weirdo. You guys really don’t want to see some of them. I look like I’m on crack in those.

ATTRACTIVE! …and WHAT is with that double chin goin’ on?!


Then I chilled for a while with my Miss Piggy socks. I know I am awesome. You guys don’t have to tell moi twice!


I fell asleep around 11, cause I was busy tweeting and instagraming. That is my life.

DAY TWO TOMORROW!

Ah yes, the oh so wonderful GW Bridge. I forgot to make sure it didn't take us that way. I really wanted to go over the Tappan Zee....oh well. Instead, we sat in traffic. Although, I have to say, once you get to Jersey on 95, they have those great gas stations where gas is sooo much cheaper AND they really scrub your windshield and get it nice and clean! Full service! Don't have those at home.
Lucky for us we were only about 10 minutes late, so we didn't miss anything...except being able to eat dinner! All of those Oreo balls made up for it!

Hmm, Bunco...don't even know. The instructions seemed way too confusing. Eating was better!

Ok, those Tastycakes...never had one, and what was worse is that these were butterscotch. Not a flavor I like, so this was making me feel really sick. But they all did great. You didn't mention how Kim, the only girl who entered, was dunking them into water like the professional eaters do. She was good, and got in 8! Bleech. Fun to watch though!
