Costumes and Window Decorations...Oh My!

Remember in my Fall Break trip report where I was telling you about my friend that I didn't know that I finally met in person at Disney during the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party? Of course, you do!!

Well, her husband dressed up as Russell from UP and he was incredible!! Here are some pictures.

So when you plan your trip to Disney for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, make sure you plan a very cool costume to wear!!
Also another thing, don't forget to bring items to decorate your Disney Resort Window. You can't use tape or write on the windows though. We use suction cups to hold everything up.
Here is the window from Halloween

Here is the window for Star Wars Weekends and celebrating my birthday

I can't wait to decorate for Christmas this year.
Thanks for stopping by!!

Life and New Trip

Good Evening! I am still struggling on my weight loss/get health lifestyle. I am going to get there but it is taking me some time. I got off track and have been unable to get back.

Last week I was in Dallas for a business trip with my day job and I ate out the entire trip. I have been hearing about the whole 30 and this seems like a very healthy way to eat and it would be good for my blood sugar. I am going to keep researching.

Exercise has been mostly nothing but a couple bike rides a week. I have got to get back to every day!!

So my new plan is at least 15 minutes on my bike 7 days a week for the next 2 weeks then bump it up to 20 minutes for 2 weeks and so forth.

For food..I am going to continue to research Whole30 and make a decision on Friday.

Now on with the fun stuff...DISNEY!!! This week we booked our next Disney trip and it will be over Christmas!! I know it is going to be crazy packed but I am researching and watching videos/reading trip reports and it seems that if you go with a plan it can be managed. I can't wait!!

We will be staying at Port Orleans Riverside in a Preferred room which is in the Alligator Bayou which is the same room that we had in October 2012.

This will be our longest trip ever! We will have 6 day tickets so we have plenty of time to explore. I have already started planning my days based on the crowd levels.

I think that is about all I have for now.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Part 6 -- Epcot

Good afternoon! I know it has been months so I hope everyone hasn't given up on me completing this report. Life again has gotten in the way.

We wake up this day and are ready to hit all our favorites at Epcot.

We decided to ride on of my favorite rides....

Yes, I love Figment!!

Next we are off to explore World Showcase. Who will we meet??

And who did we wonder upon in our journey.......that I am so happy to met.....


Yes, It was Alice and that was our first time to meet her. It was magical!!

Then there was another great person for us to meet.

It was the one and only Mary Poppins.

We wonder around Epcot and see the sights.

We wrap up our tour of Epcot so go back to the resort to grab some lunch and rest for our party tonight. Yep, we did 2 Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Parties!! Also by this time I was really starting to feel bad...I think I was getting sick in Disney!! NO!!!!!

Soup and sandwich is just what Mickey ordered to make me feel better.

Plus some ice cream!

Finally, it is time to head over to Magic Kingdom to the party. I can't wait because I am finally meeting in person another Disney Nerd as we call ourselves or otherwise known as "My friend that I have never met"!

This picture of Jamie looks like she has ears on but really it is the girl behind her. ;-)

We are riding rides and getting candy this night since the other night we saw the firework show and Boo to You Parade.

Before we know it is midnight and we must leave Magic Kingdom. This was our last night in Disney. We get up the next day and we have tickets but I am feeling really bad so we missed some of the New Fantasyland sneak peeks. We hang around the resort exploring.


This is the end of another wonderful Disney trip. This is our sad faces as we leave.

Thank you for stopping by and reading my trip report. I will be starting a new pre-trip soon.
