I love love love the picture of you with the book at the fountain! That is so cute!! I feel like I need a picture like that of my DD! Do you mind if I steal your idea?
Thank you! You are more than welcome. 😊

Love that your team dressed up as princesses and then you got to go straight to MK for pictures! Super jealous! Your photo shoot as Belle was awesome! Love the fountain photo where you were reading the book. It was so nice of the CM to let you meet Belle and take a picture with her while you were in costume!
Thank you! It was a very successful evening! 😊

Love how your coutumes were so “simple” yet so identifiable :)
Thank you! We threw them together on really short notice, so we were pretty proud of ourselves. 😋

Saturday, February 9

Finishing up from last night! We had a FP for Big Thunder so headed there first. We got stuck in the front row, but it was still a wild ride!

Our next FP was to meet Mickey and Minnie in their birthday best. 🥳😍 We had such an amazing interaction with them.. they were a blast! I wish they would continue meeting together even after the birthday celebration ends.

We grabbed dinner at Columbia Harbor House and then went to use our last FP. Dylan and I were supposed to ride Space while Brooke had Buzz, but Space went down, leaving us with a multiple experiences FP. We decided to just all ride Buzz!

After Buzz, we hopped on the People Mover and were treated to Space with the lights on! This was the first time Dylan had ever seen it and he was amazed. 😂
349187

We made our way to Main Street just as HEA began. We ended up at the end of Main Street, but it was a great view!
349188


Dylan headed out after fireworks, but Brooke and I headed back into the madness for a Dole Whip and our Pirates FP.
349189

We looked through the pin shop in Frontierland and both bought a mystery pack. I was disappointed with mine, but she got two great ones! Part of the fun of mystery packs is the thrill of not knowing what you’re gonna get, so one bad buy won’t deter me from buying more in the future. 😉

We started to head out when we ran into the Main Street vehicles running! We’ve been wanting to ride them, so we got in line! We ended up on the top floor of the Omnibus. 😍

We rode to the end of Main Street, but it’s a one way trip so had to walk back down ourselves. 😋 It was really cool and we can’t wsit to ride the other vehicles!

Another day in the books!

Thursday, February 14 - Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤

For our Valentine’s Day dinner, we had reservations at Whispering Canyon Cafe! I had eaten here a few years back, but it was a new one for Dylan! We arrived a little before our 6:35pm reservation and took some time to walk around and admire the beautiful resort before going to check in.

Dylan has decided that we need to stay here, and I am not one to argue. 😉 We checked in and quickly received our text that our table was ready. Our server was Mike and he was amazing! He made the entire meal so much fun. We were literally in the middle of the main room, which allowed us to watch all of the shenanigans going on around us. Last time I was here, I was seated in the back room and missed all the fun. 👎🏼 But this time made up for it!

We started with salad and cornbread, but Mike warned us to not fill up on it because we had better food coming. 😉 I ordered the bottomless milkshake but only ended up having one. Disney makes a killing on this because I doubt many people actually get more than one or two shakes. Oh well.. it was tasty. 🤷🏻‍♀️

We both went with the all you can eat platter. 🤤
350242

350243

We put a good dent in it, but we were stuffed! We settled our bill and decided to go walk around to allow ourselves to digest a bit.
350244

It was so peaceful and we really enjoyed our stroll. We checked out the beautiful cabins and dreamed of staying in one. 😍 It was interesting to see the different colors of cabins each had different landscaping that coordinated.
350245

We ended up at Geyser Point for some drinks. I had been wanting to try it out for awhile so was glad I finally got the opportunity! I had the Captain’s Mai Tai and it was great!
350246

As we sat and enjoyed our drinks, HEA started. We walked down by the water to watch... a perfect end to a perfect evening. ☺

In Osceola County, we don’t get President’s Day off. But we do get Rodeo Day off so yeehaw Disney here we come! 😋

I met Brooke on Main Street and we stopped because we heard the trolley music start. As we were standing there, a random photographer came running up to us and started snapping pictures. We, of course, played along. 😋 He looked at me and said “you’re a CM, right?” I was like not yet but someday! Lol. If there was ever any question if I’m meant to work at Disney, this confirmed it. 😉

We actually turned around and left MK after we finished watching... we had an ADR to make!

We picked up a Beaches and Cream reservation on Sunday and were some of the first people in the restaurant. Our server was super sweet and was very entertaining. She’ll pop up later. 😏

Anyway, we both went with the the chicken bacon ranch sandwich (or something like that). It was delicious!
350358

You can’t go to Beaches and Cream and not have dessert. 😛
350359

We went with the Frozen Sunshine... it was AMAZING.
350361

We settled our bill and headed back to the bus stop. We stopped for a picture outside, and here’s where our waitress pops up again. Can you spot her? 😂
350362

We loved Beaches and Cream! The food was great and I didn’t find it to be terribly priced by Disney standards. I would definitely go back. 😊

We arrived back at MK and used our FP for Little Mermaid. Then, we had a very important date to make. Our friend of Donald was performing at Pete’s Silly Slideshow, and it was imperative that we go visit. 😊

We said hello to Goofy first. He told us that Donald was crazy and was the one who wrecked the motorcycle through his set.
350386

350383

Shame shame Donald. 😉
350384

350385

It was finally time to say hi to Donald and he was SO happy to see us! 🤗
350379

We told Donald that Goofy was accusing him of making a mess and he was NOT impressed.

We watched a bit of FoF before heading out of the park. We’re now at Epcot for another VERY important meet and greet. Stay tuned. 😉

We had the same waitress in October and she was fun! Very entertaining. Looks like you were having a good day. Can't believe we came back to the UK 3months ago now. ☹
