    STROLLER PARKING

    When we were still in the stroller days, I would buy a large, pre-tied ribbon and attach it to the handle of the stroller. This made finding it much easier.

    Three trips to Disney can make a year good!

    Okay, for a parade! Do you all have the song playing? If you need help, click here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tLfsi9Cz_68 Now that you are properly in the mood, here are the photos. By the way, this was a great place to watch the parade, but not so good for photos. As you can see, not great photos, but still a beautiful day at Disney. But then I watched this and remember how special Disney can be. Wasn’t that adorable? I talked to her parents after the parade and emailed them the photos. I’ll post a few more parade photos in the next update. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Again, loving the comments!! Thanks so much for reading along. After the trolley show, we headed for FantasyLand and rode Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid. Sarah was chosen to be the Keeper of the Red Card. High honor, indeed! It was a hot day, so some refreshment seemed in order. Do you remember theCoke bottles that say, “Share a Coke with Fernando” or some other random name? Well, these are what they sold in the Magic Kingdom. Next was Jungle Cruise. And then Haunted Mansion. Note the card Sarah was wearing. Yes, She was chosen again. Time for a Mickey bar! Then we found a place on the Hub to watch the Festival of Fantasy Parade. Except I need to get some sleep, so I will start with the parade tomorrow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sorry these updates are sporadic. My work schedule is chaotic and that spills over into the rest of my life. Very hard for a die-hard planner! I also need to say that Ed and Rita are amazing hosts. We felt so welcome and at home! They spoiled us and we loved it!! Also, I missed a photo from the previous night. Not as cool as I hoped, but kinda neat. So, we have said a tearful goodbye to Wishes. The next morning, Sarah and I got up early to meet Gretchen for Rope Drop at Epcot. Does that mean more Spaceship Earth photos? Of course! These were taken by a PhotoPass Photographer. We went and rode Soarin’ and then Gretchen, knowing the breakneck pace we intended to keep, decided to head out. Sarah and I went to meet Joy and Sadness. Then we hopped to MK. The poster had already been changed, so we got some pictures. Then we made some fastpasses. The door was ajar, so I got a picture of the trolley. I hadn’t remembered my hat, so we went shopping. After buying one, we had lunch at Casey’s. I decided a picture of my new hat was needed. More shopping Including Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe Then we stumbled onto a Muppet show! Anyone know if they still do those? Next, we saw a Trolley Show. (Lots of back and forth across the park that day) There are a lot more of those. I kept trying to get a good picture and ended up with lots of awkward ones. This is probably the best one. But it was a beautiful day and I was at my favorite place, so what did I care? Lots more to cover from that day. Hope to do another update soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I had a trip planned for late February, but not sure I am going to be able to make it work. The friend I was going with has had to back out, so now I am seeing if I can find someone else to share lodging costs. Anyone up for splitting a value room 2/26-3/2? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The Year In Review: DIT Takes Disney Love To A New Level In 2017

    How were the lines at Dollywood? Are there enough rides for the Coaster-phobic? Not me. The WWW cure me of that. But my youngest is still traumatized from EE three years ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thank you, Sherry! I have been enjoying your pictures on Facebook! Gretchen, we need to load you up with coffee so you can keep up with us. I also always plan a day right after a Disney trip to just sit in my recliner and do nothing! Thanks for liking my photos Cortzcapt! I like them most because they remind me of being there. So when we last left our intrepid explorers, we were outside the Emporium. We went in to do some browsing. I found some earrings I adored and planned to get later that trip. Unfortunately, I never made it back there that trip. At one point, we were near a door and glanced out. The street, which had looked normal when we went in, was now wall to wall people. It was still more than an hour until Wishes! Sarah and I decided we needed to go stake our claim for a spot. Gretchen said the crowds were too much for her comfort, so she headed out Sarah and I found a place not too far from the large clock. This was our view: Looking back toward the railroad station: One more crowd photo Wishes was everything I remembered it to be. We cried as did most of the crowd. I didn’t take any pictures. I just wanted to enjoy it one more time. I still play the soundtrack sometimes and sing along. After Wishes, most of the crowd wanted to leave. If I recall correctly, Sarah and I went back in the Emporium and found a table in the back corner of Casey’s. Eventually, the crowd thinned and we were able to walk through the castle to FantasyLand. I took this picture, but is the last one from that night. I know this was a super short update. Hopefully, I can do another one later. Thanks for reading along! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Let’s see if I can get an update done before church. At some point last spring, Sarah and I heard very sad news. Disney was going to replace our beloved Wishes with a different fireworks show. We were huge Wishes fans. Sarah had bought the CD of the soundtrack and could sing along to the whole thing. It made us cry every time we watched it. And it was going away, probably forever! We decided to do what any sane, rational ladies would do when faced with such heartbreaking news; we plans to go to Disney! This would be a quick trip. We would drive down May 11th to see the last night of Wishes, then see the first night of Happily Ever After the next day, and drive home the day after that. We also decided that this would be a low budget trip, so rather than staying on property, we asked Rita and Ed if we could stay with them. They said yes! Let the planning begin!! We had a great drive down and found their house. They elected not to come with us to MK, but Gretchen met us and joined us for a bit before the crowds got huge. First pictures are from the tunnel under the railroad station. Note the matching shirts. Are we cute, or what? Sarah warned me that the Emporium windows are hard to photograph well. But that didn’t stop me from trying. Ack! Time to leave for church. I guess that is it for this update! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’m glad Yvonne can keep everything straight. When did we see Rivers of Light? Thanks to Yvonne, I now know why these next pictures were from Wilderness Lodge. As she said, we went to Geyser Point on Sunday. After lunch, we took a bus to Animal Kingdom. One random shot from somewhere in AK And more Safari photos Then we went to MK, thank you Yvonne for remembering, and rode Carousel of Progress. This is the last photo from that trip. It may have even belonged earlier in the trip. Facebook has not kept my photos in order. But it is a great photo. Be sure to notice the necklace Yvonne made! When we left Disney World that Monday, we thought we wouldn’t be back until WWW 2018. But we were very blessed to go again in the Spring. More on that in the next update.

    Okay, I know I have been slacking on the updates. The truth is, I remember some things we did that I don’t seem to have photos for. So I’m not sure when they were done. So a slight picture-less detour. Maybe some of the other WW can help fill in the gaps. I know we went to Geyser Point for lunch one day. This was when it was fairly new. We ordered at a window and were told we could find seats and they would bring our food to us. We found some tables between Geyser Point and the Wilderness Lodge pool. Some of us got our food after a bit of a wait. Some waited way too long for food. We complained and ended up with some fastpasses added to our Magic Bands. I remember that some used the fastpasses for EE in AK. And I remember that there was confusion as to when and where we were re-uniting after they rode EE. What I don’t remember is what day all that happened. It could have been the day I was sharing in my last update. So I will finish off our time in AK with a few random photos. Also, since this part of the TR is already odd, here is a photo of Sarah and me at the Florida Welcome Center on our way down to WWW. My next photos are from Epcot. Did we park hop? Was this the next day? Anyway, here I am in Germany meeting Snow White. Then it was time for our ADR at Biergarten. And, of course, a Spaceship Earth photo. Then it looks like we hopped to MK for Wishes. I am not good at night time photos. Sorry. Hey look! We rode Haunted Mansion! And then Small World! And Dumbo! I am so blessed! This is, um, well, an elephants other side. Hands up! I believe we were hoping to jump in the Mine Train queue just before park close, but the ride was down so they had closed the queue for the night early. Finally leaving the park. Can I squeeze in a 31st photo? Night all! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So, moving right along. After leaving Epcot, we went back to the Fort. We headed to the Settlement. And took a boat to the Contemporary. And caught a monorail Over to the Poly. We met up with Kelly and some of her friends at Trader Joe’s. By the time we left Trader Joe’s, the resort boat was no longer running. We walked over to the TTC. We found the nice cast member in charge of directing where all the buses park for the night. We explained our plight and he finagled a bus ride back to the Fort for us. :) The next morning, Gretchen drove some of over to Animal Kingdom. Not far from the entrance, we saw this cast member feeding these birds. Next, we went on the Safari. It’s hard to see, but there are hyenas in the next photo. Giraffe! And lots of other animals More about our day at AK in the next update. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
