    Thank you! I'll be sure to hit this up next month :thumbsup2

    Great parade pics!!! I usually only see the parade on my family trips, and I'm usually too busy watching my niece and nephew's reactions that I miss a lot of the parade itself - so I especially loved your pics! :goodvibes

    Whoohoo for Small World!

    The Grey Stuff cupcake looked tasty.

    Festival of Fantasy is great, glad you guys got to watch it. And having the castle in the background makes it extra magical.

    Landon would approve!!

    That cupcake is just sooo good!

    That was a new spot for me to watch from, which was cool!

    Day 5, October 25, 2017 - MK Afternoon

    After the parade we had some FPs to use! First was Pirates! I had no clue where the ride photo was so we are looking all over the place LOL

    After that we had a FP for Big Thunder Mountain!

    We then decided to see another family favorite, the Country Bear Jamboree!

    When we got out, the Hoedown was going on which was fun to watch for a little!

    We then decided to make our way over to Tomorrowland. Of course we had to stop and admire the view first!

    We took a quick little detour and stopped for some PP pics in front of the castle as well!

    And since it was on the way I had to make another stop at the purple wall!

    Great pictures! I like your castle selfie :) I never seem to manage to catch the Hoedown - lucky! I'm a big fan of Brer Rabbit!

    I am surprised they still have this. No one seems to know it is there.

    Always!


    Great photo!

    I always forget about the Frontierland Hoedown! It looks like fun, but something we have never stumbled upon. I always read about it in TRs and think...We need to try to catch that one next time! lol

    I love this picture of you!! Great castle selfie.

    An old classic! I'll have to rewatch this at some point. I watched it a lot as a kid but not so much as an adult.

    Love the angle of this shot!

    Cute! I have yet to take purple wall pictures. It's because I'm mostly with DH and he's like, why are you taking pictures in front of the wall? When I got back with my sister we'll be all over the new purple wall!

    Thank you! :)

    It's funny as a family we always seem to stumble upon the Splash characters in one way or another! This will not be the last time we saw them either! ;)

    It's not the best ride photo spot!

    I love that side view of the castle!

    Thanks :)

    Haha we were so clueless! We remedy that later in the trip!

    I had NO idea where it was! :rotfl2:

    Aww thanks for commenting, I'm glad you took the leap and joined the boards! How is the planning going for your June trip?

    I got the necklace in the parks on my November 2016 trip! I had originally seen it at a gift shop in the Contemporary and spent the whole rest of the trip trying to find it until my last day where I found it at Hollywood Studios! The shop Disney parks app is great for trying to find items in the parks!

    It really was fun! We only watched for a few minutes but it seems so cute for kids (and big kids ;)) to have a little dance party!

    Thanks so much!! :goodvibes

    Such a classic! Hopefully you get back to see it soon!

    Thank you! Trying to be a little artsy ;)

    Thanks! Whattt?! You totally need to! Especially now that it's all re-vamped and fancy looking!

    Day 5, October 25, 2017 - Tomorrowland!

    When we got to Tomorrowland we decided to do Carousel of Progress first.

    I don't know if this is a wall, but I decided to make it so :)

    [​IMG]

    Carousel of Progress will always be special to me, it's one of the rides I have such strong memories of when I went as a kid!

    After that we rode the Peoplemover, which did not have as long of a line as our first day!

    We then wandered out of Tomorrowland, stopping for of course more PP pics!
