We ate, we drank, we had fun and met characters. But we did take some other pictures throughout the week that were really fun.
The view off the back of a boat from Downtown Disney to our hotel.
Me and my fabulous Disney hat, plus a lanyard with new Annual Pass exclusive pins. Those are our souvenirs that we bring home from each trip.
Fabulous margaritas at Cava del Tequila in the Mexico pavilion at Epcot
We got upgraded to a Princess room at Port Orleans: Riverside! It was amazing. This is the backdrop of the bed, and the picture actually lights up with fireworks when you hit a button.
Princess Tiana even left us a note! Well, she painted it onto the table but same thing.
There was even a Mickey waiting for us when we checked in.
Hubs wanted to include this one because of the crane in the soon-to-open new Fantasyland!
Balloons on Main Street
We even got to take a tour of Main Street and go backstage. We learned the stories behind the forced perspective of the buildings on Main Street, and a bit behind the naming of the windows there. It’s a very big deal to have a window on Main Street and is only given for those who make a major contribution to the company somehow.
We had wonderful seats for the Wishes firework show – from an angle we hadn’t seen it before.
Even without the twinkle lights on it, the castle always takes my breath away.
And what would a trip report be without adorable pictures of my nephew?
I feel like I have a million pictures of him in different hats.
The shirt says “my daddy wanted to name me booyah” – another treat from the ESPN Zone. Hehe.
One of our favorite parks. I love that big golf ball!
We took a much smaller raft than this big boat to Tom Sawyer Island in the Magic Kingdom one afternoon, wandered around, climbed on the paths, and then found some rocking chairs to just sit and look around.
One of our views, this was the small raft that takes you to the island.
What a view!
The Imagineers have all kinds of little details that bring the story to life.
This is a tradition – the Attitude Picture. We have pictures of everyone on the last day of the trip, showing whatever attitude comes to mind. This day, my BIL and the family did NOT want to leave Disney – and you can tell by their expressions!
Less attitude here, I think.
We asked a nice cast member to take this family portrait. We were leaving Disney, but we would be back soon! We’re already planning the next one…
