Marie is one I've never met, I need to try and get her sometime. Jim wanted to meet Tinkerbell but her line was always too long when we passed by it.

Great PP pictures! I've never gotten the balloon one. Tinkerbell on that last one is awfully small though. And I love your sort of matching shirts for the day. They coordinate very well together.

Yay for the welcome show!! There is just no better way to start a day, in my opinion.

Cute magic shots! I love the one of you and your mom with the balloons. So sweet!

Yeah, I think even if you aren't a Harry Potter fan or know anything about, the area is just so well done and the ride is just so unique. Plus... BUTTERBEER!!!

It's so nice that the whole fam gets in on all the photos. I love that!

I met that same mayor 7 years ago! I guess they tend to stick around! Very nice!
The magic shots are so fun! I noticed a lot of PP photographers don't offer you the shots unless you ask, so we always asked! Haha thats awesome that the mayor has been the same for so long!

Glad to hear the line for tink wasn't horrible first thing in the morning. That's when we're stopping by to see her.

Loved all the magic shots. I hope we get some too.
I loved the morning show and was so glad we got to see it twice! Yes I definitely thinking going to see Tink first thing is a good plan! Definitely make sure you ask for the magic shots, because some photographers didn't mention it, even though they knew how to do them.

It amazes me how long Tinkerbell's line always is. But I guess it's not so bad since you are meeting 2 characters.

Thank you! The balloon one was fun! You are right though, Tink is SO small! Thank you for noticing our coordinating shirts, that was definitely the plan that day

Fun magic shots! It was nice of Terrance to let you know who would be back later. Still wish they would post outside or something who the meet is with rather than having to play Character Roulette

Back at MK Continued

Day 5 - Back at MK Continued

After our little photoshoot, we grabbed FP for Space Mountain & Buzz, and then rode Buzz standby. I don't remember our scores, but they weren't anything special haha


wdw201328211649658_6858934545 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

After that we rode the Carousel of Progress, People Mover and Space Mountain with our FP!

After SM, we sat for a bit and I got to get one of my favorite Disney snacks...a cream cheese pretzel! Once I was finished it was time to use our Buzz FP!


wdw201328211677722_6858932924 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We were done in Tomorrowland so we headed back to the Hub/Main Street to just walk around and explore since we didn't do much of that our first day. I'm pretty sure DAWM was going on too

We took some pictures by the statues before heading up to Main Street.

While walking up Main Street, some of the Town people were out and the Mayor was one of them! So Dad got his wish and we got a pic with him!

We picked up some FPs to meet Mickey, continued to walk around, and also spent some time in the Emporium.

We also went up to the Train Station and admired the view I loved being up here and watching everything go on below us.


1109 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

It was around 1pm and We were getting hungry so we decided to get some Hot Dogs from Casey's. Mom grabbed us a table inside while Dad & I got the food. This took FOREVER. The family in front of us had no clue what they wanted and had no clue how their DDP worked :-/. Then after we ordered it took forever for our food to come. Nonetheless we eventually got our food and we all enjoyed it!

We then headed over to Adventureland. We noticed the line for dole whips was non existant, and a co-worker of Dad's told him he HAD to try one, so we bought one to split. I only had a few bites but wow, now I know why people rave about them! Delicious!


2013-10-09 13.25.30 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We grabbed FPs for Splash & BTMRR, but still had time to do something before our Mickey FPs were up. We headed over to Country Bear Jamboree and lucky us, the next show was starting in 1 minute! My parents told me I definitely saw this when I was younger but I have no recollection of it. I was actually pretty excited to see it. What did I think? I.LOVED.IT. I thought it was funny & cute, and it will definitely be a must do on my next trip!

Man your post reminded me of all the things that will be closed when we are there in February, Splash Mountain, People Mover and Casey's. My Brother is devistated over the People Mover!

Yeah for your Dad getting to meet the mayor.

So glad you liked Country Bears, it's one of my favorites! Big Al, the one that sings blood on the saddle, has always been one of my favorite Disney characters, right up there with Pluto.

I'm glad you liked the Country Bears, I haven't stopped into see them since they got refurbed, I should probably give them another shot in Feb!

I so love the Peoplemover. So much relaxation.

Nice SM photo! Clearly you were the only one aware of the camera.

I love Mayor Weaver! He even gave me his card this past trip.

You know it's surprising how few people go up to the train station. It's such a great place for photos.

YAY another Country Bear convert. I am obsessed with Big Al!!

looks like such a fun day! how much do I love magic kingdom?!? you know, I have NEVER done bear country jamboree. I don't know why, but I've never gone in. might have to add it to the list.....

I love your mom's shirt--so cute! and I like how you all go together, but aren't matchy matchy. I have matching shirts ready for our trip and I may have pushed it a little with my DH, but he'll live, right?

oh, your dole whip is making me hungry! only 18 more days....

Great Main Street photos! I love the ones from the train station. That is a great spot to just take it all in and people watch! Love that y'all got to meet the Mayor and take a photo with him too. He is adorable!

Dole Whips are well worth the hype! I don't think I would ever stand in a super long line to get one, but when there is only a short wait, it's like a sign from God himself to go get you one!

Oh, Alexis, I'm afraid we can't be DIS friends anymore now that you have professed your love for the Country Bears. I really do not like that show at all, and I have tried to find the good in it, I swear. Just kidding, of course, everyone has the things they like and dislike in Disney World, and that is what makes it such a wonderful place

Yay! Carousel of Progress pictures, and a Dole Whip! My family hasn't done Country Bear Jamboree in at least 10 years; maybe we'll try it out next time.

Now that I've done it (well done it and remember doing it), I say everyone should see the Country Bears at least once!

Yes we decided we had to have one day where we all coordinated! DH will definitely live, it's just a part of the Disney way!

You will be there SO soon!

Thank you!

I agree! I'm glad there was no line, it meant we were destined to try it!

Oh no!! Well I am glad you can look past my ways and still be my DIS friend! I agree though, that is what makes it such a wonderful place!
