I love those PP shots with the fireworks going off in the background! What a great photo.

Your dad's expression in the Splash Mountain photo is PERFECT! I love that ride!!

I don' think anyone is ever too old to ride Dumbo. I have to say I was a little worried that the new location wouldn't be as magical not being right by the castle, but I loved the new set up - being over the water makes it so much better and love that it has it's own area. Plus, the night rides are so different from the day ones

Love you dads face in your Splash Mountain pic
HAHA yes exactly! I still laugh at her for loving it so much!

It is still on my bucket list to ride Dumbo at night, haven't gotten to do it yet!

His face is SO funny..Our photo from our 2nd ride is definitely MUCH better!

Day 2 - MNSSHP!


Day 2 - MNSSHP!

Once we got off Splash Mountain, we scurried over to Tortuga Tavern to pick up our wristbands for MNSSHP. I wanted to get over to the Dwarves line by 5:30 and it was already after 5. We got our wristbands, map, and treat bags and headed back over to Fantasyland....where I could NOT find the dwarves line. I asked some CMs but none really had any idea. Finally I found the area where 2 other families were waiting. We ended up in line around 5:25 and we were the 3rd group! While Mom & Dad held our spot, I went to the bathroom to change into my shirt for MNSSHP We made friends with a lovely mom and her 2 kids, which made the time go fast! They said the dwarves would come out at 6:50 but it was definitely closer to 7 when they arrived. Ah they were SO cute, everything moved so fast but it was awesome! Mom's favorite is Dopey so she wanted to be sure to stand by him. I decided I would hang by Bashful and what a good choice! I asked if I could stand by him because he was my fave and he had the cutest "bashful" reaction. We took our photo and before we knew it it was over! I may have mentioned this in my PTR, but Mom LOVES Snow White & the Seven Dwarves. She was most excited for this greet and I think it definitely lived up to her expectations!

After that we went straight over to Princess Fairytale Hall. Rapunzel's side was 40 minutes and Cinderella's was 15 minutes. I decided to hit up Cindy's side as I knew I'd probably do Rapunzel on our second night. This was my first time in PFH and omg how beautiful it was! I love all the portraits and the regal feeling inside! Once inside we met Cinderella/Prince Charming and Aurora/Prince Philip. Both were lovely!

wdw201327911136318_6863071866 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


I think it was around 7:20 when we got out. We hit up the Pinocchio Village Haus treat spot (yummmm werthers!) before checking out the 2 magic shots in Liberty Square. We saw no line for the hitchiking ghost shot but the photographer was having some issues so we moved on to the Haunted Mansion carriage photo. There were a few families in front of us but it only took 5 or so minutes to get to the front. When we were done, the hitchiking ghost shot was working with no wait still, so we did that!

It was almost 7:45 so we headed to the castle to see the first villains show. The show was not too crowded and we got a spot right in the center to watch. So I know I've heard people say they aren't fans of this show but I absolutely LOVED it. I think it's a fun, perfect Halloween type show! (And my Disney withdrawals may have had me watching it on Youtube several times when I got home )

Once the show was over we got into Hook's line as that was the one villain Dad definitely wanted to meet and he wasn't sure if he'd stand around for the future shows we attended. We met him quickly and headed over to the Evil Queen's line. She was fantastic and we had great conversation with her. Though I don't remember exactly what I said to her (I think something about her being fabulous), she loved it so much she responded with a "say it louder!" and when I did she said "say it louder again!!". After that, the coordinater kept saying the villains only had a few minutes left. There was a short line for the Queen of Hearts so we decided to hop in line and hope we could meet her in time..and we did! Dad told her she looked beautiful and she started to caress his face, it was so funny! I was SO surprised and pleased that we got to meet 3 of the villains in one shot, considering how chaotic I've heard it can be! This definitely helped my touring plan alot!

After this it was around 8:10, so I crossed my fingers and headed to the Pooh line, which was one of the greets I was most nervous about. There was only about 3 other groups waiting for the 8:30 meet, which was perfect! The lovely Berlioz70 ended up in line right behind us, it was so nice to meet and talk to her and see her adorable baby!

Pooh & friends came out pretty much on time I believe. This meet was a little bit of a blur! Since there's 4 of them it's hard to say hi to them all in a short amount of time! I stood next to Eeyore and got hugs from Tigger and said a quick goodbye to Pooh & Piglet! They were so cute. Mom said this was one greet she was surprised at how much she loved!


280 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

So I could've SWORN our pics with Pooh & Friends was in our PP account but when the CD came it was not there. I checked our account and it's not there either. I'm a little bummed as we had a lot of missing pictures (which were all recovered!) but I guess I missed this one

After that we walked over to Tomorrowland to see if Boo was out at the dance party. I introduced Monsters Inc to my mom a few months before our trip and she became obsessed (obviously) and we both love Boo! Unfortunately no luck We did spot Mike though!


281 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We moved on and checked out the Space Mountain and Speedway treat spots. Space Mountain gave out Monsters Inc gummies that were delish and came in handy later in the night Dad especially loved these and *spoiler alert* demanded we hit up the spot again on our 2nd night! We then did the trail from TL to FL. After arriving in FL I made a quick stop at the gift shop to buy some pins. They only had the mystery boxes, so I bought 2. I was very excited for these pins since they were Nightmare Before Christmas themed! I opened up Box #1...and I got the 2 chaser pins. I eventually realized these are rare and I should be happy! But imagine when I opened Box #2 and got the SAME thing! The boxes must've been from the same batch. I was a little dissapointed at first as all I really wanted were the regular pins and this meant I would have to buy more boxes to get them!

It was around 9 now, so we headed to Main Street to find a spot to watch Celebrate the Magic & Hallowishes.

Following your TR

MNSSHP looked like a blast, have to say, my favorite picture so far was with the 7 Dwarfs.
Great TR

I cannot believe how much you got done in the first few hours of your party! I think the one we went to must have been more crowded. We couldn't even get anywhere near the villains to meet any of them. Well we did get Frollo but no one ever seems to want to meet him.

Great pictures with all of the characters!!

What a great and fun start to your first MNSSHP!

You got to meet so many characters!

I'm glad to hear the Cindy line was only 15min, I'm going to wait to see Rapunzel first at MVMCP but I wanted to meet the other royals as well.

The Pooh gang are so freakin adorable, what a great picture!

3 villains during the villain show is quite a feat! So cool!

Ahhh the 7 Dwarfs photo is surely a precious commodity! I'd forgotten they moved the location.

I thought the Villains show was ok too (though I still have no idea what it's about, lol) but WOW is it ever short. Certainly the highlight is the meets afterwards.

And speaking of meets, WOW, you guys are seriously burning up the party. I am shocked you were able to meet the amount of characters you did. Clearly your strategy worked. Very impressive!

wow - sounds like a great party, and love your shirt!

I love the magic shots ... though I notice that your Dad is trying to hitch-hike in a different direction than you and your mom

That's great that the princes meet with their princesses at Fairy Tale hall

Wow you got to do so much so quickly! Your planning really paid off. That's awesome! I love the pics, especially with the Evil Queen. I was looking closely at Lady Tremaine on our trip, and I think she's the same age as the sisters! It's amazing what they do with the makeup on the villains.

I'm quite surprised myself! This party was definitely not as crowded, especially comparing it to my 2nd party night which was sold out.

And thank you!

I couldn't believe it myself!

I always noticed that Cindy's line was short than Rapunzel's so you should be able to do both sides!

The Pooh Gang really is adorable and it's great to be able to meet all 4!

Haha Dad was obviously trying to get far far away from us!

Thank you! Oh my gosh it's funny you mention that about Lady Tremaine because I always wondered how old she could be! Makeup certainly is an amazing thing! PS I can't wait for you to start your TR!!
