I love the last castle picture--you all look so happy and the castle is lit up so pretty!

Have a Merry Christmas!

Tiana's dress is my absolute most favorite of all the princess dresses! What a cute meet with her & Naveen.

Lovely parade pictures. That's pretty cool that the characters were able to spot your celebration buttons and wish you Happy Birthday & Happy Anniversary! I love when the parade characters are really interactive. Sounds like I'll need to tuck away that parade viewing spot too for upcoming trips. I used to be adamant about watching the parades from Main Street for the atmosphere, but once we started watching from Frontierland, I became a total convert. It's just so much easier to get a spot over there, and without having to do so an hour before parade time!

MSEP is one of my favorite things to watch at Disney. I have such fond memories of the parade from childhood. Unfortunately they only show it on a few nights in February and we are not going to be in MK on one of those days.

Wishes looks awesome from back in New Fantasyland! I'm going to have to try watching them back there in the future.

Ahhhhh, BOG. I am so in love with that restaurant. I cannot wait to introduce it to my Mom, brother and SIL in February. I hope they like it as much as I do.

I do have to say though, why oh why did they make the Prince's pants flesh colored in that stained glass? It looks like he has no pants on at all!

Wonderful pictures of the park after hours.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

AHH, I HAVE to watch the fireworks from back there one day. I just get so fixated on watching from the "sweet spot' on Main Street. But it looks like a great (and uncrowded) spot.

I loved BOG even though I only had lunch in there. Sadly, no Beast for lunch. But it really is beautiful.

Oh my, how pretty to walk through an empty Magic Kingdom. Magical Indeed!!

And since this is your last post before the holidays, A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family!!

LOVE your BOG post, it looks so amazing for dinner! It was amazing at lunch too, but it seriously looks like a whole different atmosphere at dinner. Awesome. And Wishes over the Beast's castle looks amazing! You got such great photos. I'll have to remember to book a BOG dinner for late on our next trip, I love all the nighttime photos you were able to get with hardly anyone else around. What a great MK day!
Thank you so much! It really is a different atmosphere at dinner, and seeing Wishes was such an added bonus!

Her dress really is gorgeous! It was a great spot; I know it's not the same feeling as when you're on Main Street but it's definitely easier!!

Oh no, that's so disappointing that you won't get to see MSEP on your upcoming trip. You will have to make up for it on the following trip

I had no idea the type of view you get of Wishes from New Fantasyland, totally recommend it. I am sure your family will love BOG! HAHA I never really noticed the pant-less prince but now it's all I can see!

Trust me, I wasn't sure how I felt about not being on Main Street to see Wishes, but it really ended up being a great spot!

I wish they did have the Beast out for lunch, it's unfortunate that the only way to meet him now is at dinner.

Day 6 - Resort Exploring

Forgot to add my Firsts of the Day for the day before!
-Meeting Marie
-Meeting Tink & Terrence
-Meeting Tiana & Naveen
-Seeing Wishes over Beast's Castle
-Eating dinner at BOG and meeting the Beast


Day 6 - Morning of rest and resort exploring

This morning we did not have to get up and rush to a park, which was much needed! After waking up we headed to get some breakfast at the Food Court. I was super excited to try a Disney staple- Mickey waffles!! Mom & I both got the kids portion and Dad got the regular POP! waffle! We all thought they were delicious, though were slightly cold.

After fueling up, it was time to explore our resort some more! We started in the 80s and worked our way down through the 70s, 60s and 50s.

After finishing up in the 50s, we decided to cross the bridge and check out Art of Animation! We first passed through the Nemo section, it was so colorful!

We then headed to the Cars section. I don't think I've ever seen this movie in full (Bad DISER!) but I could still appreciate all the details!

After being disappointed by the french toast the first day of our trip I'll admit I had a POP waffle for breakfast everyday SO good!

Love the POP and AOA pics! We never even walked around our resort this last trip, so sad!

I love Mickey Waffles. Not even the taste so much as... it's Mickey!!!!

This trip I did so little home resort exploring it's shameful. I mean, I was just there in April but still.

YAY Lady and Tramp... My Section!!!

AoA is just so pretty, it's hard to resist. I love all these photos so much!

Great pics! I wish we had made time to check out AOA, but getting there from ASMu via bus and how tired we felt most days kept us from checking that off our list. It looks awesome, I think we'll have to save some extra money and stay there next time!

You are so right!

I definitely love Pop. And AoA is so colorful and fun, and definitely appealing to kids! But I would love to stay at POR one trip too!

Yay for Mickey waffles

I'm glad we had the extra morning to walk around and look at everything, otherwise we definitely wouldn't have been able to do it!

Sometimes you just don't have enough time to do it all! I loved the 50s section and would definitely like to stay there! AoA is certainly so pretty and lively

If AoA wasn't right across the bridge, we definitely wouldn't have been able to check it out. I'd love to spend time checking out all the resorts, but like you said you're just so tired and don't have the time to do it!

Day 6 - More resort exploring & heading to MK!

Day 6 - More resort exploring & heading to MK!

The sun was beaming today and Dad was feeling the heat. He decided to rest in the main building while Mom & I headed on to the Lion King & Little Mermaid sections.

Mom's a goofball

And last but not least, my favorite section!

I absolutely loved the Ursula statue...I guess it's pretty obvious that she's one of my favorites


1066 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


1070 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We headed back to Dad at the Main Building and decided to grab some lunch at the Food Court. Mom & Dad split a pizza and I got the Buffalo turkey sandwich. This hit the spot for me, it was so tasty! I was told the pizza was good too.

We walked back over the bridge to Pop where I headed back to the room to shower while Mom & Dad stopped at Petals Pool Bar for an afternoon beverage

They came back to the room while I was finishing getting ready, and soon enough it was time to head to MK for our second MNSSHP!!

Mom decided to get in on the ear fun!


161 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

And the color of Dad's shirt, as you may have noticed, was very fitting for the occasion!


163 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We got to MK around 3:40 i think? And they were already letting MNSSHP folks in which was perfect! This party was actually sold out too! We picked up another set of SOTMK cards and took a bunch of pictures in Town Square and on Main Street.

Awww, your dad making the Mickey ears is precious!! I love your Cruella shirt. Very MNSSHP appropriate! I can't wait to see what all you were able to accomplish at your second party!
