August 24rd, 2008!
So FINALLY! We’re here! We see the sign sneak up on us around 1 I believe, and then we headed over to our resort! All-Star Movies, it was alright, it was cute, but still, POP is WAYYYY better. ASMo has a bad bus system, too few pools, and is alittttle outdated. But other then that it was still very nice. But next year we will definitley be returning to all our favorite, POP! When we left Riley, my oldest nice actually said, “Mom mom, next year, lets stay at the Lady and the Tramp hotel!” haha, which was so funny. Because we stayed in the 50’s at POP, which is L&T. But at ASMo we got Toy Story, which was one of my hopeful chances, next to 101 Dalamatians and Fantasia.
At the front check in my parents and everyone got their pins. My parents for their 30th anniversary! My brother Scott, My nieces Maddie and Riley, and myself for birthdays! And my brother in law Nick’s sister Sammi, my nephew Nick, and my niece Charlie got their first visit pins! ^.^ Phew, that was alot!
So after checking in, settling down, and freshing up we headed over to Magic Kingdom, naturally! It was sooo nice to go through those turnstils and under the bridge and see that castle for the first time! :] We wandered around Main Street for a little while, and I bought the best part of my vacation, FINALLY, my own personalized Peter Pan hat!! :peterpan: Then we rode some rides in Tomorrowland because we got there late, around 7pm, my niece Riley was finally tall enough (JUST tall enough :happy:) to ride the 40’’ rides! So that was exciting.
Then we headed to our first dinner of the trip, Tony’s Town Square! One of my favorites. It was a little scary at first because they were going to seat us apart, and we had a surprise anniversary cake that I planned for my parents, so we were all getting upset, and my mom wouldn’t like not sitting with everyone, and it looked like they weren’t going to do anything about it, but finally, they fixed the problem, because on the phone when I made the reservation they told we would be sitting TOGETHER! So, anyways, crisis adverted, and it was a very good meal. And my parents were so surprised at the cake, they even cried at the inscription I had them write on the cake “Jeff and Maureen 30 Years of Magic!” I was so glad to see that they loved it as much as I hoped. They even gave them bride and groom Mickey and Minnie hats! It was a great way to kick off the vacation
After dinner, we rode some Fantasyland rides, and the Haunted Mansion, the MK was open til 1am, so we utilized all the time we could, but we didn’t get any Adventureland or Frontierland rides done. But the kids did meet some characters! Chip and Dale (mine and my mommy’s favorite original characters!) and Donald Duck! Madison my niece loveddd Chip and Dale, and baby Nick loved Donald. Riley is a little more shy, but loved meeting them both as well. After that, we rode back to the resort and PASSED out! :laugh:
