Aloha part 2

 

First things first…packages and rates for 2012 for Disneyworld are now available!!! if you would like a free quote for a time in 2012, please email me at heather@travelwiththemagic.com. Remember, it’s TOTALLY FREE to use a travel agent, no strings attached! Let me take the stress out of booking! Also, if you have already booked through Disney, I can do a takeover of your reservation and handle things from here on out for you!

Yesterday I ran three miles, then Bobby and I went to the gym and did tri’s, legs, and chest, then did 20 minutes on the bike. I am feeling it today!

Ok so we left off after our first day in Disney. The next morning we woke up with a mission. It was Star Wars weekend, and we HAD to ride the new Star Tours ride! Our plan, was for me, Bobby and my dad to run to the new ride when DHS opened, and my mom took our passes and went to Toy Story mania to get us fastpasses. It was a good plan, we only waited for Star tours about 25 minutes, and our fastpasses were for around 12:45. But first….we woke up early (all except Bobby) got coffee, and sat outside on the swings at the beach, outside our room, and chatted as Disney woke up. I LOVE Disney early in the morning, it’s one of my favorite things ever.

after Star Tours, we did the Great Movie ride, the American Idol Experience, and then ate lunch at a counter service location before riding Toy Story Mania, and then heading out of the park.

heading out already? Why yes actually. We only had two park days, really, so we were hitting up EPCOT as well as DHS. But not before taking a few fun pictures.

Bobby, dad and I hopped in the single rider line for test Track, and we were getting pretty tired so after walking around a bit decided to head back to the hotel.

Oh, I forgot to mention, this day was my parents 34th wedding anniversary!!! Fun times! We also were in Disney on their 32nd anniversary, and we ate at Narcoossees that night as well.

Isn’t that fun?!? and yes, my mom and I wore the same dresses on purpose so we could retake pictures in the (relatively) same spot. Love it! Do we look different?

Dinner was fabulous, we got our favorite waitress

if you know me at ALL you know I LOVE Narcoossees almond crusted cheesecake!

While we were eating, a freakishly dark storm settled over the Magic Kingdom, and we watched it rain from our table.

that’s not night sky, it’s dark clouds! ssspppooookkkyy!

After a lovely dinner we decided to walk the path back to the Polynesian from the Grand, it was so nice out, a great end to a great night!

tomorrow’s post will be more California fun!

QOTD: Would you rather be at the parks in Disney when it is raining or really really hot?

Comments

  1. So much fun! And none of you look different from 2009. You know you’ll have to go back in 2013 and do it again, right?
    Definitely really, really hot. Because then you can at least take breaks and cool off in the pool. It as ridiculously hot when we were there in June/ July for our wedding but I still loved it. This March when it was freezing and pouring, we couldn’t do anything!

  2. Your pictures are so cute! I love all of the poses. :)
    PS. My mom really wants to do a Disney vacation in the summer of 2012 so I might give her your email address. It would probably be a lot easier for her to have some help!

  3. Wait! They redid Star Tours? AHHHHH!!!! I need to get down there ASAP!

    Looks like so much fun! I would rather be at Disney when it’s raining. It’s fun! :D

  4. Love the updates! Looks like a super fun day!! :0)) y’all are so cute in your “same” dresses!

  5. We got on Star Tours in less than 10 minutes last week, though it was a Monday. Of course, now you have to ride it over and over since there are a billion or so ride combinations.

    • wow thats fast! we went 6 days after it first opened, and it was memorial day weekend, after all lol!
      yeah my husband is a huge star wars nerd so he will want to go back and ride it again I’m sure!

  6. I would definitely rather be at Disney when it’s raining!! The crowds clear out, and you can wear a Mickey poncho! :) Cute pictures!!

  7. Great idea with the repeat dresses…if only to prove to everyone that neither you or your mom seem to age at all! :)

    Love Narcoosees…and that walk back to the Poly after dinner sounds delightful.
