Last Weekend Trip To Disney

Since I am carrying a lot of extra "cargo" lately, I can't exactly work at Disney World right now. I could handle wearing a dress all day and just standing there, but I don't think my growing belly would look good in that tight dress. And I can't exactly trek around with 50 pounds of fur, being inside a sweat cave (aka a fake animals head) while playing Pluto. And I have to work by the end of January in order to keep my position as a seasonal cast member. So it is time for me to admit, that after 4 years, I will no longer be an employee of Disney at the end of the year. It is sad to say, but it is time to move on!

Ok, now with that off my shoulders! We decided to take advantage of the GREAT discount employees get during the holidays season, as well as the free tickets in to the park. This is our last chance! We called up our good friends Mark and Kaylinn Morrell to see if they were up for a spontaneous weekend trip to Disney the FOLLOWING weekend. They agreed. We booked a very cheap hotel room at Super 8 and were off!

We had a great time. The Morrell's share our love for Disney and know so many tricks and secrets that excite me all the more! We all haven't been since May (I know what some of you are thinking. May is not that long ago. Well for us when we are used to going 5 times a year and the Morrell's who used to work there and go everyday, May is a very long time). I think I aged 20 years since we went in May because man, I was dying! My feet hurt, especially my heels, my back hurt, my neck hurt, I had a constant headache, my shins hurt, my calves hurt, and the list goes on and on. I had the hardest time standing for that long. I don't know how women who are in their 8th or 9th month do it. I was beat! But we took lots of breaks which was wonderful.

There were many rides I couldn't go on, but there are many things that I NEVER do when we go there because I would rather do all of the big rides (that have long lines). So it was fun to do new things for once. Oh and Kaylinn decided to join me most of the time, so it was more like a man date and a girl date. We all loved it. Here are pictures of the event.

**DISCLAIMER: I love looking at all my pregnant friends' blogs to check out their growing bellies. But they all don't take lots of pictures because they say they don't like any of the pctures of them. I thought that was crazy until now. I look hideous in these pictures. I didn't want to post them, but I decided that maybe a little bit of sympathy at this stage would be nice:)

Mark and Kaylinn

The little kids choo-choo train.

Kaylinn and I went on tours of some of the factories there. They weren't really tours. They were like rooms with read to yourself signs. But still very fascinating. At the Mission Tortilla Factory they gave me a package of free tortillas for my birthday!

We met Rapunzel from the new movie Tangled. I CANNOT WAIT to see that one.
We watched Bugs Life. And had to take a picture of us with our bug eyes on.
We rode Toy Story twice! Waited 75 minutes but it was WAY worth it. It was pretty much the only ride I could go on, so it was even better.

YAY!! I knew I loved Disney, but now I love them even more because they love Christmas as much as I do! They put up all their Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving just like we did!
We met Santa! I think his makeup artist needed to work on bringing his mustache to life a little bit more.

We got to meet aka stare at Santa's reindeer!

We rode the Disneyland railroad a few times:)

They brought back the Captain EO show. I never saw it before, and I would be fine if I never saw it again:)
While I waited for everyone to ride Indiana Jones, I went and met Jasmine and Aladdin.

We splurged and ate at the Blue Bayou. This is the restaurant that is inside the ride Pirates of the Caribbean. It was so delicious. And they have the best atmosphere and ambiance ever. Just love it.

I got a dessert for my birthday!

The gang at Blue Bayou. Too bad you can't tell that is where we are at!

We also got to watch the World of Colors. This is probably the coolest thing I have ever seen. And leave it to me to cry during pretty much the entire thing. I love Disney.

The pictures don't do it justice, but they play videos off of the water and bright lights to tell the stories of each movie.

Well that is about it. Thanks to the Morrells for going with us!
