Nic, Kristen, Jason, Tanner, and I stuck together today. Tanner and I ran to Pooh to get fastpasses while the rest of the group got in line for Peter Pan. We met back up with them and rode Peter Pan, another one of my favorite rides. It really gets me in the Disney spirit. Then we did IaSW, Snow White, Pooh, and HM.
Nic, Jason, and Tanner rode Splash Mountain next (I hate drops, so I opted out. I made a deal with Nic that I would ride it every other trip to Disney, since I love the rest of the ride. I just wish they’d let me get out of the boat before that big drop!). Kristen and I got a spot to watch Princess Tiana’s boat show. It was cute and I LOVE her dress! It’s my new favorite princess dress!
We met up with the other 3 and grabbed fastpasses for BTMRR. Then we went over to PoC and JC. By that time, it was time for our fastpasses, so we went back to BTMRR and rode it. This was my sister and I’s favorite ride when we were little, so I always get a little sad when she’s not riding it with me. But I knew we’d be back later in the week together!
We headed to Tomorrowland after that. We rode Space Mountain, TTA, Buzz, Stitch, and Laugh Floor. I love the new padding in Space Mountains seats…wonder how long that will last?! We got a bite to eat at Cosmic Rays then decided we’d like to ride BTMRR again. We caught the train from Toontown and headed over to Frontierland. Unfortunately the line was 50 minutes long and we didn’t want to wait! I don’t know why that line was so long, no other line was over 15 minutes, including Space Mountain! We went back up to the rose garden and watch the castle lighting ceremony. Simply gorgeous!!!
Then we headed back to the hotel. It was an early night for us, so Nic and I decided to watch our Netflix movie that we had brought. Ashley would be arriving tonight and I was getting excited to see her! Our movie was over by 10 and we got ready for bed. Ashley’s plane wasn’t supposed to land until 11 so I went to bed, but she was supposed to call me when she got close to the hotel so I could meet her in front and take her to our room. Well, she texted me when she was getting close, so I went down and sat on the benches out front. Next thing I know, she’s calling me all frustrated because the security guard won’t let her in (she had to take a taxi). She gave them her name and told her who she was staying with, but it showed that we had already checked in and since she didn’t know the room number they wouldn’t let her through! Ugh, I was able to give her the room number and they let her through. I understand the need for security, but if her name was on the list and they knew she was staying there they should let her in! I was not happy. When we got back to the room Nic was up and I was surprised because he had been sleeping when I left. He wanted to know if I had called the room and I hadn’t. He said someone did and Ashley said she thought the security guard had tried to. They tried to call our room to make sure Ashley was supposed to be coming and Nic had picked up the receiver and slammed it back down again! He thought it was the wake up call! He could have solved the problem, but hung up on them instead. What a nerd. Anyway, that ends day 2 and here are some more pics!
I love the castle covered in icicles, it’s stunning! Nic’s sister, Kristen is in the pic with me in front of the castle.
