I agree, I would love a day where we could just resort hop to all of the different resorts we've never been to!

Awesome photos with Woody and Buzz! I've always wanted to meet them but their line is always so long! Good idea to go there first thing, I'm always too busy being obsessed with TSM to make it over to them early!

Too funny about your parents on TOT. I'm glad they loved it though, great ride photo!

Throwback WDW Photos!

Hello! Yet another winter storm has hit, really wishing I was at Disney now! Hope everyone who is dealing with bad weather is staying safe and warm!

My mom dug out some photo albums and we came across some photos from my first trip to Disney! So I hope you all don't mind if I interrupt this trip report with some throwback photos?

I'll start with this one, though not from WDW it IS Disney related..receiving 101 Dalmations on VHS for some occasion, I think Easter. I was pretty excited huh?


2014-01-05 19.03.57 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

Now onto the WDW photos!

First up are some MK ones. It appears I met Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear! Goes along quite nicely with my pic with Br'er Rabbit at MNSSHP!


2014-02-02 09.59.55 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


2014-02-02 10.00.01 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

Showing off all my cool autographs to Dad!


2014-02-02 10.00.56 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

Another day at MK, meeting more characters! Chip & Dale, Suzy & Perla (!!) and of course the big cheese.


2014-02-02 10.13.59 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


2014-02-02 10.12.41 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


2014-02-02 10.12.38 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


2014-02-02 10.12.00 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

And lastly, riding on Dumbo with Mom


2014-02-02 10.12.18 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

Onto MGM, since that's what it was called back then! Meeting Mickey & Minnie in some super cute costumes.


2014-02-02 10.03.21 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


2014-02-02 10.03.29 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

And a meal at Sci-Fi! This is one thing I do vividly remember about this trip.


2014-02-02 10.04.02 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

And last up is Epcot, meeting Pluto in some futuristic getup.


2014-02-02 10.05.27 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

And cannot forget this one, the reason why I never saw Illuminations as a child though I do not have the same excuse for why I still have never seen it!!


2014-02-02 10.06.43 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

Thanks for letting me share!

Very cute throwback pics!! I wish I had been able to go more as a kid, but I do get a kick out of looking at pictures from the one trip I did take as a kid. So fun!

Oh gosh-- finding the dwarves line was impossible! Because the props and stuff aren't set up that early! If there hadn't been another family there, I never woulda figured it out.

Super cute pictures with the dwarves! Glad your mom loved it!

I loved the villains show too! And that's awesome that you were able to meet 3 after one show!

You guys really made good time during the party! That's awesome!

The picture of you guys during Hallowishes is priceless!

I love your outfit for your Epcot day!

I don't blame you for having no F&W food pictures! I have a hard enough time balancing food

Aw I love Duffy in his pumpkin costume! Adorable!

That's really annoying that they didn't mention Mary was outside but I'm glad you still didn't have to wait long!

The Food and Wine festival sounds amazing. I hope I get there for it someday soon! And glad your mom and dad loved it and want to go back!

You guys did so much in Universal! And met so many characters! I've still never seen Despicable Me! I think I should.

The Cat in the Hat definitely reminded me of Winnie the Pooh too! And the one fish two fish ride was just like Dumbo!

AW I love that you guys wore matching Mickey and Minnie shirts!!

Marie is the cutest! I love her so much! I hope they bring Berlioz and Toulouse out too! That would be the best!

Going to meet Tink early in the day was absolutely an amazing decision. That's what I'm going to have to remember next time cause the lines were ALWAYS crazy!

I love your buzz ride photo! You both look so focused

Aw yay I'm glad your dad got to meet the mayor!

I've 100% decided Country Bears Jamboree is on our must-do list for next trip. I need to see it for myself!

I've never seen Mary out in the MK! I guess we're never on Main St at the right time! So cool that she had no line though!

I've never met Tiana and Naveen either! Definitely on the list for next time. Glad you guys had a great meet though! I'm pretty sure I recognize that Naveen from Katt!

Aw those confectionary snacks are so cute!

OMG I ADORE those fireworks shots over beast's castle! So cool!

How did your parents like their dishes at BOG? I was torn between that and the steak but I eventually landed on the steak because I'm really picky with scallops.

Glad you loved BOG and got to eat there! We were the last seating of the night too and I actually really loved doing it that way!

It took me forever to finally see Cars but it's really adorable! I definitely recommend watching it!

Love the Jack and Sally pictures! They're so cute!

Yay for meeting all the villains!

AH how awesome that you found Brer Rabbit and I'm so jealous that you got to meet all 4 from Aladdin! What a perfect pixie dust moment! Sounds like you had 2 amazing MNSSHP experiences! Yay!

I love all the PP pictures with the MU gate! I'm so bummed we never saw a PP photographer in front of it.

Ugh aren't you so tired of this winter now! I know I am!

Love the old Disney pictures! So cute!

I'm so glad to finally be caught up with your TR!

Finally joining in!

What an awesome trip (and trip report)! Clearly this was a special time together as a family and you all had a great time.

Your parents, especially your mother, are positively beaming in each picture.
I love how they enjoyed meeting the characters as much as you.
