  • Trip Report My first TR, my 50th visit with this pass!

    Today was my 50th visit with my current pass and I wanted to make it special. I recently had knee surgery and just started walking again so my mobility is limited but I have really wanted to go on the Lilly Belle so my first stop around 10am was to Main Street station and they still had seats, so I got my spot for 3:30 and headed over to see if Space was up, which it wasn't, so I went in Star tours and got 3 of my favorite segments!

    I then left for physical therapy and lunch then headed back in time to see the train pull up, with the Lilly Belle in tow! I then checked in, got my ticket and waited! There were 10 of us on the train and our CM was super nice and funny, but I would have loved to hear more history. It was just a brief overview that lasted until NOS then people just chatted. I loved just taking in the park from such a special place!

    After disembarking I headed over to DCA to avoid the parade and decided to visit the Animation Building since I hadn't been there in years. I found out I'm most like Mrs. Incredible or if bad, the Evil Queen. I then saw turtle talk which was really cool!

    I ended the day with dinner at Carthay Circle Lounge with a Rose Petal Soda and Duck Confit sliders, which were delicious!

    It was a slow, low key day but I really enjoyed my 50th visit and will be sad when my pass expires in May! I hope you enjoy the picture and if you ever want to try for the Lilly Belle, get there early and give it a shot!

    50th visit on 1 pass?! You are a true Disney warrior Great post and congrats on riding the Lilly Belle round trip. We did the "Walk in Walt's Footsteps" tour a few years back and got to take a quick ride on the Lilly Belle- so special and definitely one of our fondest Disney memories. Wishing you a speedy recovery!

      Thank you for the well wishes!

      I live less than 10 minutes away, so it's easy to go for a few hours, but most of my trips were actually after my night shifts, on the way home for an hour or two...it's hard to not stop when I drive right by on my way home!

            where do you go to register for a spot on the lilly belle? does it only run on certain days?

              You go to Main Street station and ask a CM if it is running, and if so, if there are any available spots. I was there an hour after park opening and was halfway through the second load, and I think they just did the two (it ended up being quite warm yesterday...I was afraid they were going to cancel it!)

                    It looks like you had the same conductor on the Lilly Belle that I had. I think her name was Cort. She was great. Very personable and knowledgable. Glad you had a great time. Sometimes low key is really what you need.

                      Her name was Shauna, so maybe it was a different person, but she was great!

                        Congrats on 50 visits! I usually only manage around 25 visits per pass.

                        Thanks for sharing and best wishes for your recovery!

                          Sounds great, glad you had a good time!
                          I've never been on the Lilly Belle. Is there someone you ask in particular when you get up to the Main St. station early, or do you just go stand in line and ask the first CM you see for a ticket?

                            Just ask the CM at the entrance to the station...there is a little clipboard that they took down my name and party size, then told me what time to return. When you return, that's when they give you your ticket, which is really just a souvenir.

                              Sounds awesome, and great pix! How was it getting around after your surgery? I just fractured my 5th Metatarsal in my right foot on the 14th and am in a CAM Boot (pneumatic velcro walking boot) for another 6 weeks or so. I'm an AP holder from Long Beach and we try to go every other Sunday, but I don't want to hobble around on crutches.
