Great pictures of DAWM as usual! I'm starting to recognize a few of the dancers in the show from your multiple viewings!

Glad to hear you had a good trip and that you now have another partner in crime for your trips!
Ahaha, it's a great show!! I definitely recommend watching it later in the day when it's not so hot though lol!!

It was awesome! And i'm super excited for what the future will bring!

OK, so I looked at that kick and quickly realized I will never be a dancer. Thanks for killing my dreams Katt!

I STILL haven't seen this from beginning to end, BUT, I do plan to fix that next month FOR SURE!!!

I just love all the close up photos! Almost like being there.
Heh heh heh Obviously we've chatted about it already!

Bahaha, sorry! Lol. It kills me how well these guys kick, clearly the main thing for m to work on!

Thank you!

Congrats on a new house, especially something that's close to work!

Dream Along with Mickey on a Katt TR? Shocking!

Okay, that dude kicked his leg super high! I don't think I could even kick my leg that high back in my dancing days!
Ahahha, this year has been a lot of trips, but not as many as with the AP, and now that I have a new friend that can go whenever, it's an added bonus!

Thank you!

Ahahahah, I know right?! Lol, the dancers can kick amazingly well in this show, I'm pretty sure that's all that really matters

Thanks!! Lol. Yeah, I definitely have my favorite performers in each show, and it's weird, when we were there in Oct, we noticed a HECK of a LOT of new people in Move It Shake It! All our regulars were probably trained on Boo To You and we didn't see them! Lol

Hi Katt! I love your DAWM narrative. Those were some kicks! The facial expressions on some of those characters are awesome. They do such a great job. This last trip was the first time that I actually stopped to watch the show more than a couple minutes in passing.

Hmmm..... gee I hope you go to Disney in early December... say when other people may be there.

It Really Is A Day of Dreaming

Pirates is such a great attraction, I love that it’s one of the classics, and I love that it’s gone far enough to inspire multiple movies over the course of the years. Love! When we were exiting the gift shop, the Pirate Tutorial with Jack had just begun so we stopped to check that out for a bit.



Now, there was a little girl who was up to battle the side kick, and she had been out at the BBB, full princess dress, hair, everything, and was the CUTEST little thing.



Turned out she was quite the fighter too!





It was rather hilarious watching her battle it out with him and she was so into it and raring to go and just beat him and win the treasure! Cute! It was nearing that time in the afternoon now that we had a little bit of extra time, and it was going to just be time to sit! We found a spot on Main Street just outside of Casey’s for the 3pm parade, and I grabbed everyone’s cards to run down to get some fast passes for the princesses for after!!

It was a bit of a wait for the parade to get there from Frontierland, and it seemed like the weather was starting to turn on us, it had been so hot and insane all day, but the rain clouds were a rolling in and I was starting to get super excited that we’d see what happened when a downpour hit mid parade! (Seriously though, I want to see what happens when that happens!)

There was a small family beside/behind us that had the cutest little girl, pretty sure it was Grandparents and the Grandkid, but I offered her the spot to sit up between Mom and I and she plopped herself on down there and I had a new friend to help kill the time with!







I will never get over how much I love that Stitch is wearing like, 3 ties. So cute!







Sadly, the downpour didn’t occur, it continued to spit and spatter a little bit, but nothing to detrimental for the performers, and not enough to cause the crowds to disperse. Sad! Although good….



DUMBO! Man, I just want to be able to meet him, like, the character they had at the FLE opening was SO ADORABLE and I just love Dumbo so much it’s insane! Also pretty high up there on the cuteness scale, BERT!





Like, stop being so perfect please…also…come out for meet and greets in Florida!





Wendy and Peter looked specifically familiar today, and Belle was looking lovely!





P.S.. WHAT is Ariel’s dress even supposed to be here, like, seriously? This dress wasn’t much better than her remake. This one and the redesign look pretty similar in terms of looking like her wedding dress, but I still like her old one way better…



As we reached the end of the parade Mom turned to me and was all ‘there’s your prince!” to which I clearly replied “Uhm…that may be Prince Naveen, but he is not hanging out with the right person today…besides, Prince Eric was always my favorite” Bahahaha! So classy.

It was weird to me that this was one of the last times that I would ever see this parade! I knew I wouldn’t be making it down to Disney again before the closing, but I did think that I was going to see it again later in the trip. I also wish I had thought to video the Tremaine’s! However, I didn’t, and am very, very excited for the Festival of Fantasy…I believe that’s what it’s called. It looks FREAKING AMAZING.

The parade had managed to beat the rain, I’m pretty sure it rained a bit now, but we were inside the Main Street shops browsing for a bit not before our fast pass window opened up. Gotta love those Disney shops! I was sad to see less Halloween merch than I expected, I knew that more should come out at the actual parties, but still, I wanted it now. I was also having a HECK of a time finding post cards to send back to my friends! I was so sure I had found them on Main Street last trip but couldn’t seem to find them anywhere this time!! Hopefully that would turn around!!

Best Selfie EVER!

As I’m beginning this update, I just thought to myself “we seriously didn’t get any Main St photopass pictures?!” and then I realized that it probably was in fact, raining, and harder than during the parade. Since the photopass photographers always hide during rain, that would make sense. I’m not one to walk down Main St without taking pictures! Except this time…

Oh well! By the time we reached the end of the street, and the cover of the stores, the rain had slowed down and we scurried across Town Square and over to the theater where we jumped straight into the fast pass lane and were straight into the blue room. There was a woman behind us who had “waited in the wrong line” by accident ….yeah, sure… and was complaining to the cast member rather rudely while he calmly explained that this was the fast pass line, and that she was in the wrong line, without a fast pass she would have to leave and get in the other line. She wasn’t too happy, and lucky for us, the cast member let our group into the princess room before dealing with the woman.

Cinderella was the first princess for us to greet, and she was “meh” as I wrote in my notes. Cindy’s always been okay with us, but that’s it, just okay, I’ve never had like, an over the top amazing experience with a Cinderella, minus maybe last Halloween. I think it may be because she’s one of the classics and isn’t as spunky, but really, if you watch the movie, she is! And like, look how gutsy she is, MAKES her own dress with her kick *** little mice friends, which gets TORN off her by her evil stepfamily, but she still has the kahunas to go to the ball anyways!



**

Mom commented that she liked the new dress, and Cindy’s only response was “oh yes, my Fairy Godmother made it for me, lovely isn’t it” she also took note of my Disneybound and said “you look like my friend Rapunzel” and then we moved on. Not great, but hey, you get what you get. And it was about to be made up for!





Aurora was immediately chatting away and asked if I liked to braid my hair with flowers, I told her I did, but they had actually fallen out/broken since putting them in that morning, but oh well! She said that Fauna planted flowers all over the castle courtyard, but Rapunzel ended up using ALL of them for her hair and now there was none left!





She wished Anne a very happy birthday, and was just so amazingly interactive and just kept chattering away with us it was seriously so awesome! And even more amazing was while we were distracted talking to her, this was happening with my camera:



Like…best ever…thank you…I’ve seen them do this before but I think the picture didn’t take, and of course, with other people’s cameras, so I was super happy to catch him taking the selfie with mine! Lawl.







Aurora was definitely the best interaction of the princesses that day! But it was time to move on to the one that I was most excited for today, clearly as I was styled after her!





Rapunzel commented that she liked my purple, and asked if it was my favorite color, it was hers! I said I didn’t really know WHAT my favorite color was, it was like trying to pick a favorite princess! I settled on green, and she said “Like Pasca!?” and that’s when I suddenly remembered! Since I had been planning on being Rapunzel for MNSSHP, I had bought a little plush Pascal from the Disney store to go along with it. When the costume bailed on me, I decided to bring it when I Disneybounded, so I pulled him out for a few pictures!









And then Mom and Anne jumped in on the fun with the blondies!








Overall winner of the greets, definitely Aurora, Mom even commented that she was fantastic, so you know you’ve got a winner there!!

That Pirate tutorial is can be so entertaining. I love it when the kids are really aggressive, it's so funny. That little girl was so cute is her princess gear... and sword.

Bahaha, for the first time EVER, someone WANTING it to rain. But I do get your point. Once you've seen the parade it would be interesting to see what happens when it downpours mid-parade.

Well... you may or may not know it, but Bert WILL be out for the Xmas parties this year.

Oy, so awkward to be around whiny rude guests. Glad you got to get away from that.

That photographer at the princess meet and greet = AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great time at MK! How cute the little girl is fighting the pirates!

And the parade pics were great as well - we never seem to stop for parades.

What a fun time with the princesses, even if Cinderella was not that exciting. We actually usually have pretty good interactions with her - maybe she's better with the little kids. Aurora and the CM were a lot of fun though!

Oh my gosh! I'm glad that I'm not the only one that secretly wants to see it rain on the parade. I would love to see how that works. What happens to their make up? Do they start quick stepping it down the parade route? Just so many questions!

That little gal with the sword battling the pirates - awesome!! She was fearless. Now that's entertainment.

We've seen that Cinderella before and yeah, not so impressed. However, your Aurora interaction was awesome! I love when they are so cute and chatty and you really feel like they want to spend time with you.

That's awesome that you had Pascal with you so he could make an appearance with Rapunzel.

I'm ridiculously far behind and you had a WHOLE Disney trip in between.

The rooms at POFQ look gorgeous! I always thought CBR would be the first moderate I'd want to try but POR/POFQ are winning me over.

I've deemed the Grand Floridian my wedding resort too!

You guys look so cute in the Chef Mickey's picture!

YES Disney noms! Yum!

Boo for not so great characters. But I'm glad to hear a positive review of the food. Totally on my list for next time.

Ah no what a ticket mess. I hope it doesn't cause a problem later! Love the pixie dust moment for Anne!

I wasn't impressed with photopass this time either. So many problems and missing photos and I have at least 4 other people's pictures. Ugh.

Wow. That Peter Pan meet is literally amazing! Yay! I love that he had your mom crow with him!

I'm glad you had a great trip and got to bring a new friend with you! I'm not sure if we can be friends anymore though-- I'm officially BEYOND jealous that you're going back again in December. Just kidding but seriously, I've been scheming to try to sneak in a weekend trip in December but it's just not happening.

Omg Chris is totally obsessed with seeing what happens to the parade when it starts storming in the middle. Apparently he's seen a lot of youtube videos of it.. Who knew

We met the same room of princess friends! We've met that Cindy before too and never were too impressed. We loved Aurora too! She was the best I think that we've met!

Awwww, that little princess looks so stinking cute next to Jack Sparrow! And she does have some fighting skills!

That Wendy looks a lot like Ginnifer Goodwin!

Yeah, you are absolutely right. A likely story that you were "waiting in the wrong line". Nope, she just tried to get the CM to let her in. Denied!

Hahaha! That's a great CM selfie.

I know right!? It was super adorable! I'm glad we got to witness it!

Ahahaha, Yeah, I've seen pictures of Naveen attempting to cover Tiana with his cape during the parade in a DOWNPOUR and since then I've just really wanted to see what happens

I WAS SERIOUSLY TALKING ABOUT HOW BADLY I WANTED TO MEET HIM THE OTHER DAY AND THEN I READ THAT HE WOULD BE OUT AND I DIED OF HAPPINESS

He was great!!

Lol, thanks!!

Lol, I've had some good interactions with Cindy, sometimes she can be great, but I feel like some of her friends are all "eck, Cindy's boring, I want to hang with Ariel or Rapunzel today" and they feel like, stuck with Cindy, but she's actually pretty spunky herself...

Ahaha yeah, Like, I get that the characters are stuck where they are, but what happens with the dancers?!

So cute!!

Yeah, she's not great, Aurora was perfect though! Since meeting one over in DLR that was AMAZING, I've had a soft spot with Aurora, she's one of the ones that I want to hang with the most!

Ahahaha, I luck out in having time at work to type up the updates and then all I have to do is post them! Lol

Oh my gosh Port was the GREATEST!! I was watching princess and the frog last night and all I wanted to was to be back there lol. I want to do a princess royal room at riverside next!

Peter was a blast, I was super glad that the ladies got into the character greets, and that the characters got into it too!

Photopass was such a bust, I think we'll pre pay for the original next month, BUT, I will not depend on it!

Ahahaa, at least I keep the instagram active! I don't know how I do it, but hey it's great! Lol. I should look up some videos on youtube!

YAY! those princesses were great, well, almost lol!
