  • Trip Report Eventful 3 day trip!

    Hello all!!!
    I just got back from my 3 day trip. whew-- tired am I. It was pretty nice-- I took my husband who hates most everything, so we did a lot of things I would normally skip. I have picuters, but who knows if I'll ever get them up. Some highlights:
    Saw someone famous on Pirates, but didn't get a good enough look at them to figure out who it was. LOSE
    Saw Billy Hill and the Hillbillies for the first time--- LOVED it! WIN
    Went on Small World (eh--same as before--pointless with an annoying song) LOSE
    Went to Pixie Hollow (15 minutes wait for a fairie I'd never heard of) LOSE
    Went up into the castle. Loved It! WIN
    Went to Blue Sky Cellar. Loved loved loved it! WIN
    Bought a hoodie that I love love love love--just what I was looking for. WIN
    Ate a chocolate and toffee covered pretzel while watching Fantasmic!--a perfect moment. WIN
    Got caught with my tickets I bought on eBay (ohhhh I'm in trouble now!!) and received curt word from the lady in charge at the annual pass office. No big deal-- I totally deserved it. LOSE
    Bought a new deluxe annual pass-- (ohhh ahhhhh ouch! Full Price!) Oh well, I told my husband I'll have to go twice as often this year to make it cost effective. And yes I learned my lesson--no more ebay tickets for me. (no need to pontificate on the evils--I know I know. I stand as a humble example of what happens when you try to cheat the system. Don't be like your auntie sleepybear kids-- Cheaters never prosper and sometimes they get scolded at the AP office for it.)
    Overall the trip was a WIN WIN WIN. Oh wait I forgot the biggest news of all............................................... ..

    Saw FISHBULB getting off of Toy Story Mania. That's right a celebrity sighting of a MiceChat darling. OMG! Its Fishbulb--(insert Beatlemania scream here). I mean really--CHER WHO?? And he had his camera and everything. It was so exciting.

    I'll put pictures up if I get around to it!! SB










    My daughter took this!!


    My daugther and her friends think that pretending to sleep in ride photos is hilarious. I played along. When in Rome..... But check out my sweet new hoodie.


    My daughter's friend has an actual fear of people dressed as animals--especially mice. She spent the whole trip afraid of Mickey. This was our picture of her conquering her fears. Go Girl! I took her to watch Fantasmic! After I said, "See Mickey isn't scary--he's good." She said, "I was just thinking how powerful he is and if he wanted to fly over the river and kill me that he probably could. He did just kill a dragon and then make fireworks come out of his hands. He's so powerful." LOL!!


    My daughter has an artistic eye.


    My husband's favorite thing at DCA (which he prefers to DL) was beating me at TSMM. Not the ride mind you--just beating me. Sigh!

                    Not trying to find out private things but what did you do on ebay to get you in trouble? If you wanna say you can, if not its fine. I'm just curious. And also about the cuss word mentioned? You mean a CM told you that cos that is so not professional and not what I would expect an employee especially one of Disney.

                      15 min wait for Pixie Hollow? I'm so jealous! It was never shorter than 45 mins whenever we checked There was no Tink though? That's so strange.
                      Good morning, son
                      In twenty years from now
                      Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                      And I can tell you 'bout today
                      And how I picked you up and everything changed
                      It was pain
                      Sunny days and rain
                      I knew you'd feel the same things...

                          Oh I bought tickets for the park for myself and the girls. They were six day park hoppers--the seller used the 1st two days and we used the rest. When I tried to use it tp upgrade they asked me a question and I answered wrong.

                          Also by no means did the CM use a cuss word. She was short with me--- said she didn't believe me and that she wasn't playing my game. She ripped my ticket up. After some thought I wonder if she thought the tickets were someones single day ticket I got for like 20 bucks to use as an upgrade. I actually paid much more than that. By the way--it is against the policy stated on the back of the ticket clearly. The CMs did their job, which is what Disney pays them for and the other CM apologied profusely for the curt CM. I of course told her no apology was needed.

                            Ok I totally understand now, hey it happens and its good that you dealt with it well. Oh and I guess I misunderstood cos I thought it was cuss but curt. but have fun with your new passes.
