I need to cross Liberty Belle off my to-do list too! It does give you a unique perspective of the park-- plus the cool stuff you can only see via boat!
Aww, I wish I could say every CP cast member I've encountered was bubbly and happy to be working at Disney as the girl you met! For me it's really been 50/50 as far as attitude, helpfulness, etc.

What a beautiful sunrise from your room at BLT! I love early mornings at Disney.

I totally agree with you- there is no better way to start out a day than with the Macadamia Pineapple Pancakes at Kona. MMMMMMMMM!

What a fun meet you observed with Mickey and the little girl. I'm so glad you posted all of the pictures from the room- since I am also a member of the "No sleeping in Disney" club, I'll join you in Goofy's seminar.

You have the coolest commentary with your pictures- the stick in the back of the IASW doll. LOL! Madame Leota's expression is, um, different. Sour pickle face.

Spectacular pictures from the Liberty Belle. I don't think I have done that in 5-6 years. Last time was when Ben was still avoiding Haunted Mansion and we went while Mark and Nate cavorted with spirits. I love that there are some things you can only see from the ship. The Indian Camp, which I think you can also see from the train, was part of the book Kingdom Keepers. Thanks so much for including the info about Wilson's Cave Inn- that was fascinating!!!

The picture of the run-down log cabin put a smile on my face. A couple of weeks ago, Nate had to make a diorama of the log cabin from the book Huck Finn for his Honors Language Arts/History class. It looked just like that, with painted popsicle sticks subbing for the logs.

Cute pictures in Liberty Square and thanks for the shoutout to Massachusetts! Glad the Liberty Bell was back in place.

We have not been to the Liberty Tree Tavern. Your pictures of the pot roast and the ooey-gooey-toffee-cake make it very tempting!

I tried to find information about the windows on google- Someone commented that the glass was hand-made. A bing search yielded this info: "This restaurant, located in Liberty Square, is a table service establishment which brings to life a little "taste" of the colonial period of United States history. The setup is a colonial tavern way back in the day, so to speak. The theming here is terrific, with vintage decorations and even old wavy, seeded glass in the windows."

Hope you have a most happy day today!

I love going on the Liberty Belle! Congrats on crossing it off your list! But somehow Wilson's Cave Inn has eluded me and I didn't know it was there! Very interesting read on the inspiration behind it. Thanks for posting the link!

Totally agree with you about the enthusiasm that usually accompanies a DCP CM!

Great update! Like many of us, it's been SO long since I've been on Liberty Belle and I think many are just like you were and hadn't yet at all. Thanks for including the link out to the story about the Cave Inn, how interesting! I love Disney trivia like that!

I haven't, however, been to Liberty Tavern, tried to many years ago but didn't have an ADR and the wait was just too much! Your dessert looked amazing!!!

All caught up again!

I totally forgot about the soft serve hair on Ariel! And I had no idea that people didn't like it. I remember her hair being like that in the movie at one point and thought they were just trying to recreate that scene.

I've been on the Liberty Belle at DL but not at WDW yet! Need to have that happen stat!

Hi Brenda! Back from Spring Break and trying to catch up on the DIS - a rather daunting task….

Loved all the pics from the Mickey queue. I really need to take more time to notice those details! The PP pics with Mickey and the ones with the castle turned out great.

Your pictures from the Liberty Belle are fantastic! I always intend to ride and then completely forget it’s even possible.

I love the Skellington shoe ornament - I would probably have to buy it if I ran across it.

I've never done the Liberty Belle either, but you got some great pics! I'll add it to the list.

I like your picture with Massachusetts, my home state!

Liberty Bell has just made it to my list. We have never done it. I don't even remember doing it all those visit as a child in DL.
LT always sounds good but gets cut before ADRS get made. Maybe this time. I really need to go more often of longer.

I loved reading about the Liberty Belle. We'll definitely have to try that next time!

LTT has never appealed to me, but that dessert does look tasty!

That is cool!


DH and I were talking about what we would do if we were taking an adults only trip the other day and he said *gasp* we would only need to spend one day at the MK! If only he knew how much he has been missing!! The LB seems like such a relaxing way to see some MK sights, although I think I wold be with Em down in the shade!!

WOW! What a trip report. I like your personality

You go so into detail I feel like I am actually there. Thanks for putting all this effort in to it! You're keeping my Disney cravings satiated.

P.S. I had Christopher as my server at CRT on my second trip to WDW, and only trip to CRT. He is AMAZING. So glad to see he is still there. You know an awful lot about requesting servers, how could I do that there...if at all?
