Disney or Bust 2009


Ryan LOVES the huge "rainbows" that greet you as you enter the parks. Her favorite is the one that you see from the main Disney road with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald. I tried to get that one but it didn't come out as good. I have to admit I love these signs too, it means we're there! :)

A few years ago we bought a My Pal Mickey. He talks to you, laughs, tells jokes and lets you know important information as you walk around the parks. He's an interactive wonder and the kids love him. Ryan was the keeper of the Mickey this year and even though some things were lost in translation, we all had a great time with him. This is on the tram ride into the park...he had something to say to Jared apparently. Mickey did have a slight mishap. He decided to stay on the Buzz Lightyear ride after we rode it and had to take a trip to the Lost & Found. We picked him up the next day and all was again right with the world. He is now sporting a new "leash" thanks to Gran. :)

At the train station-look at the bootiful Not-So-Scary decorations!

more decorations, I love Fall in Disney. I would LOVE to see Main Street decorated for Christmas. Put that on my bucket list...maybe someday.

Main Street USA
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE coming around the corner off the monorail and hitting Main Street---We're Here!!

Walt and Mickey

On the Jungle Cruise, one of my favorites. Very punny ride.

Be still my heart, it's Goofy!! The kids wanted in on the picture :)

After the boys and I rode Splash Mountain we went back and got Ryan for Thunder Mountain Railroad. She LOVED it. Afterwords, Rob decided to get her on Splash Mountain, I ran to fetch the camera from Gran. She did NOT love this ride. I wish the zoom came out, her face is priceless. Her grip on Rob is deathly and so was her attitude when she got off the ride. Opps, guess no more downhill drops for this little thrill seeker.

All is forgiven after the water ride, time to go find some more attractions.

Donald (Jared's favorite)...can you tell Kevin wasn't into it?

Kevin on It's a Small World, I love this picture. The other one of him holding his ears through the entire ride was funny, but he just looks so handsome in this shot.

Um, Ryan? Watch where you're driving. Just cause you hear the shutter open....

Jared driving solo. Oh dear.

After the Spectromagic parade they have a beautiful fireworks show, definitly worth waiting for in the crowd. I took this shot for mom-purple castle!!

We had a great week but now it's back to reality. Boo Hiss :)
