Rides with Friends – One Last Ride on the Barnstormer

17 May

I seriously cannot believe that Mickey’s Toontown Fair closed a little over 3 months ago…

So for today’s ‘Rides With Friends’ I decided to post some pictures and video from our last ride on the Barnstormer.

It was Zoe’s first roller coaster, so it was a super special ride for us. Even though it will be re-themed, we will greatly miss looking for our favorite little details!

As you walked towards the Barnstormer, you knew that this would be no ordinary flight...

A Jelly Jar...what else would it be?

A look at some of the graduates of Fido's Fearless Flight School...

Class is in session...you might want to watch out...

The class schedule

I loved how these chicks would cluck as the Barnstormer went by!

Looks like someone has been hard at work here!

Finally, a look at Goofy in action...and it might not be an encouraging look...

Join us as we take one last flight…

And as an extra surprise, they were giving out these little beauties to everyone who rode on the Barnstormer one last time!

Taking it Easy at the Magic Kingdom!

12 May

It is sooo easy to get carried away in the Magic Kingdom, and before you know it you are roaming the parks with a glazed look in your eye and a fist full of fastpasses.

But on this beautiful day, John, Betsy, and I decided to take is slow and focus on enjoying ourselves and taking some photos of our favorite things.

So here is are some of the photos that I took from our day around the Magic Kingdom.

By law, you are required to take this picture every time you visit the Haunted Mansion! Look it up...Google it! 😀

And you HAVE to take this picture, too!

The twins are my favorite busts!

This makes me giggle every time!!!

It isn't a ride on Haunted Mansion without paying your respects to Master Gracey.

The Captain

I could stay here all day...even though I don't get the rhymes right all the time...

The back of the Poetess' crypt.

Campbell is my maiden name...

I love this shot of the head stones!!!

Madame Leota

The new chicken out sign at Haunted Mansion!

It's Country Bear Jamboree time!!!

How do you not love this little guy....errrr bear?

I love Country Bears and I don't care what you say!!!

This is Betsy's favorite part of the show.

Big Al

Country Bears Finale!!!

I love this little spot outside of Pirates of the Caribbean!!!

A larger picture of La Fuente Serena.

They have added some POTC 4 portraits to the Pirates gift shop.

Pirate Tutorial

I love how this sign just blends in with the theming.

That is quite an interesting mailing address...

You have to look closely for this guy...

Inspiration Falls

How can you tell we are in Africa?

Time to go to the watering hole.

1971 Impalas

FYI, you really can't out run a rhino!

Ginger and Smiley

Almost...

Hungry, Hungry Hippos!

I love these guys!

The backside of water.

Good thing I caught this guy with his trunk on!

Any way you slice it or dice it...

One of my favorite plants here in the jungle...

Rum and Hennessy...what else do you REALLY need on a jungle trip?

I love this board as you exit the Jungle Cruise!

I can't leave without at least one castle picture!

Celebrate Today...Indeed!!!

And a Dole Whip at Captain Cooks is the perfect ending to a perfect day!

Thanks for joining us on our slow, but relaxing trip through the Magic Kingdom.

Girls Day at Magic Kingdom!!!

24 Feb

I am sorry that I have been MIA from the blog, but I have been lucky enough to have had my Mother in town!!!

My Mom’s favorite park is the Magic Kingdom, so we decided to spend her last full day in town taking on the Kingdom!

Be warned…I took a lot of pics…

Still lots of tarps over Main Street...

Make way for Mickey!!!

Still working on the Confectionery...

It was a pretty busy day...

There was a lot of banging and saw dust coming from the bridge construction.

Just in case you didn't know...

As you walk through, the sounds of the natives are drowned out by the sounds of construction.

The new Princess Meet & Greet entrance with a posted wait time.

And this is the exit...

Ariel and Eric have been been meeting in this gazebo area, too

Our first ride is ALWAYS the Jungle Cruise!!!

The Girls!

Our Skipper

The Backside of Water!!!

The Tiki Room is still boarded up from the fire…

Then we decided to take in a new/old favorite.

Then it was time for my Mom to take Zoe on her first ride again, and for me to snap a few pics of the Fantasyland Expansion from my trusty Dumbo…

The gals in their pink Dumbo...

It looks like the Tigger area of the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh queue is still touch and go…

It was a nice touch having these guys around this area, because it seemed so vacant and dead.

Don’t look behind this big, green wall…seriously it will make you sad…

It looks like they are really making progress on the new track on the speedway.

We decided to finish the day with two of our favorite rides…The Peoplemover and Carousel of Progress!

Zoe is making a super silly face with Mom!

I hope that you have enjoyed joining us on our Girl’s Day Out!!!

The Magic Kingdom…Now with More Walls!!!

8 Feb

I have been spending a ton of time at EPCOT lately, so I decided to head over to the Magic Kingdom to see what I could find…

Main Street USA is buzzing with activity, as there are still several buildings behind themed skrims…

As you turn the corner to enter Adventureland, you get the immediate sense that there is a lot going on around here!

While the bridge at the entrance to Adventureland is undergoing a complete makeover, a smaller walkway is being used.

Over near the exit to the Swiss Family Treehouse, the stroller parking area is getting a facelift!

The last bit of skrim is still up between the Tortuga Tavern and Pecos Bill’s…

Walking over near Splash Mountain, I caught a picture of the new logs in action! I had the opportunity to ride Splash a few days ago, and I can only hope that they are able to work out the timing issues that the new lap bars have caused at loading.

The Liberty Square Riverboat is being refurbished…

There wasn’t much to see, but I headed over to Hanunted Mansion to see if anything was buzzing. The ongoing work is still going on behind these walls…I can’t wait to see it when it reopens…

Tomorrow I will be taking a look at Fantasyland, Toon Towns last days, and Tomorrowland.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this look around the Magic Kingdom!!!

The Art of SHAG comes to Walt Disney World

31 Jan

When I read on the Disney Parks Blog that Josh Agle, better known as SHAG, would be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort for the first time to sign deluxe prints of the 40th Anniversary Map I knew that I had to be there!

I got to Uptown Jewelers at around 10:00 am and found myself sixth in line to purchase the print to be signed by SHAG.  It was really exciting!

I wanted to take this bad boy home with me!!!

The confectionery was sending over samples of goodies, and some of the citizens of Main Street USA came by to offer a visit. The wait was made to be enjoyable thanks to the humor of Fire Chief Smokey Miller…

At 11:00 am we were able to buy our items to be signed. There were prints, Haunted Mansion decanters and glasses, and Haunted Mansion aluminum water bottles available.

Then it was time…but just as SHAG was about to begin signing the good Fire Chief had a surprise! He joined the Dapper Dans in a serenade of “Grim Grinning Ghosts” for SHAG!

The Print itself features the icons and resorts that were present as Walt Disney World opened 40 years ago. From the Polynesian to water skiing to the sky buckets…it’s all there!!!! And to top it off, he was a super cool guy who graciously signed and spent time with each of us.

It was definitely an experience that I won’t soon forget!!!

Today’s Walk Around the Magic Kingdom

20 Jan

You can definitely tell the busy holiday season has passed, because the walls and scrims have returned to much of the lands of the Magic Kingdom!!!

Come along with me as I take a peek at all the work going on in the Kingdom…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

And if that wasn’t enough…here are two bonus pictures!!!

First up is the 40th Anniversary Viynlmation for the Magic Kingdom! It looks like this series will be an open box, which I totally support!!!

Second, at Downtown Disney the Lego store is about to undergo a lengthy refurb so they are putting up this temporary store between Once Upon a Toy and Earl of Sandwich.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this look around with me!

If there is anything else that you’d like to see pictures of, let me know in the comment section!!! 🙂
