Peter Pan & Halloween cupcakes

This afternoon we park hopped to Magic Kingdom.

I couldn't help take another shot of the train station.

We stopped into the Main Street Bakery for a little pick-me-up before heading to Fantasyland.

The rest of the fam met my cousin and his family for dinner but Audrey and I stayed behind. We enjoyed ourselves at Columbia Harbor House and then strolled out of the park as the Halloween party was beginning.


Happy Halloween!

I hope you and yours have fun tonight and get lots of good candy. Here's Tink after lunch at Yak & Yeti today. (It was quite good BTW.)

Festival of the Lion King

Young and old adore this spectacular show. Audrey was clapping and pointing throughout the performance.

Jungle Trek

Tink loves the animal trails at DAK. Here she was checking out the ducks in the aviary. Other than the crowds around the tiger viewing areas, little ones have lots of room to explore on these trails.

Animal Kingdom

Here's hoping it's not Animal Kingdom hot today!

Thanks to everyone who came by for the meet. It was great fun chatting with you all.



This is for Janine. A grilled veggie sandwich at Backlot Express. I had a similar sandwich at Portbello and it was yummy!

Saturday in the Park

Chris and I are leaving All Star and heading to Disney's Hollywood Studios. For those who have asked, Tink is doing better but is staying in the room for a nap. She and the rest of the family will join us at DHS later today. In the nearly 40 years my family has been visiting WDW, yesterday was the first time any of us had stepped foot into a first aid center. I was thankful for the kind nurses at Epcot.

Oh my tea in China!

Just heard a little girl say that as I was snapping this shot. I've been a slacker on posting today but we are having a nice time in Epcot. Heading to Future World soon. Right now I am enjoying a mango green tea slush and waiting on the family.

Tiki Room!!!

Someone is about to see the Tiki Room for the first time.

It was a big day for Tink as she did lots of firsts at WDW yesterday.

Don't forget the Growing Up Disney meet on Saturday!

Please come by and say hello on Saturday, October 30 between 2 and 4 at Writer's Stop at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I have some fantastic buttons to give away!

A few more fun pics from today

The kid's milk at Kona.

Unintentional ears at Laugh Floor.

Snack time!

Audrey, Chris, and I had a great day at Magic Kingdom. The park wasn't the least bit crowded. Audrey did great with all of the rides and shows. Lunch at Pinocchio's was better than expected.



Yummy! We've only had breakfast here before.

My one complaint...please don't place my hot plate in front of my small child.


Check out this hip hoodie I just found for 40% off! Not that I will wear it here. It's over 90 again today!

Where in the World am I?

This is a tough one. We found a fantastic nook for Audrey to nap.

Ready for lunch

Great table!


Tink has been asking to see Mickey Mouse all morning. Hope the Philharmagic will work.

Good morning from the Magic Kingdom

It's a lovely day!

Let's Show Some Progress

I love the Carousel of Progress. I would however like to see Disney update it just a little. I chuckle when in the final scene they updated with a big flat screen TV but left the mother's laptop as a early 90's monstrosity. Still, it has it place and it is a classic. So when you take your seats the seat belts fasten from right to left and your 3-D glasses and found in the seatback infront of you. If you don't have a seat infront of you then they are under your seat. Sit back and enjoy.

Anyone else think he's much slower than past years? But I still almost missed the shot. :(

Solo Riding-- Lunch At Big River

After taking lots of pictures this morning at Hollywood Studios and getting my own car on ToT I took the walking path from the studios to the Boardwalk indenting to head straight over to Epcot but I got pleasanty sidetracked at Big River. I got the Rocket Red Ale and hickory bacon burger for my late lunch. Ok Big River can make a mean burger. Huge and juicy full of flavor cooked to order. Served with chips unless you ask for fries at 11.99 a good bargain because the burger was huge. The Rocket Red Ale packs a punch of flavor it has a deep red color and heavy mouth feel, it is sweet with a clean finish. Thank you Bruce from for asking me to have one for you. I am a new fan of this one.
