It's been a while.....

So it's been ages since I've made a post and I want to get back to my blogging. No guarantees it will always be about travel though because we have a lot of things on the horizon that I will want to talk about. Maybe more local tourist activities will be underway.

Well an update about last year's trip to Disney.... it was amazing. The biggest news out of that trip was that R proposed at the California Grill atop the Contemporary Resort.

So what to 2 Canadians do as soon as they arrive at WDW on the first day??? With all of the possible attractions, rides, food, and fun characters to see??? Why head over to Epoct and straight to the Canadian pavilion to tell everyone we are from Canada too. We found our first photopass photographer as soon as we got off the boat at the Epcot world showcase entrance.


Other things we enjoyed.....

Spotted a ghost at the haunted mansion

A prince in disguise?
The Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. We trick or treated, had our photo taken with the seven dwarves (very rare) and had fun in our costumes.

The magic photos that we had done with our photopass was really fun. We got to do all kinds of neat shots.
Hi Ho Hi Ho

I told Sneezy that he was my fave because I sneeze a lot too. I think he quickly turned into bashful after that. Pretty fun to interact with all the dwarves at once. We were kind of rushed through this since so many people were waiting but it was still a lot of fun.

Stealing a kiss

R was very very excited to check out Hollywood Studios to ride Star Tours (8 times) and see the Indiana Jones show. We had fun playing with hand prints in front of the Great Movie Ride and waiting (too long) for Toy Story Mania. Tower of Terror was as scary as always but always worth the butterflies. We ate at the 50's Prime Time Cafe, a campy fan favourite (I will pass on this next time) and loved the Fantasmic fireworks show. This was certainly one of our best days.

All ready for our first scene
Happily Every After?

Pooped after a long day on set
We had so much fun that we decided we would return to the scene of the crime and take our honeymoon (Dismoon) back at WDW. This time we will be staying at Port Orleans Riverside (my dream resort) and possibly taking things a little slower. We wont be doing the Halloween party this year but the Food and Wine festival is back and we are excited to do more sampling around the world!
