    Club 33, 1901, and Dapper Day - Sept 5th & 6th

    Hello, again!

    So, my husband and I decided to take one last trip before our first baby arrives. We based our trip around attending Dapper Day, which unfortunately fell the day after our APs expired. This was our first year ever owning APs (what an AMAZING year itís been), and while we wish we could renew, we do not plan to do so until a few more years when our little girl can enjoy the parks with us.

    Anyway, letís start the actual TR! Just a warning Ė this might be a little slow to complete because Iím working, and there are lots of pictures of us (not so much the parks themselves) because I focused more on enjoying our time and due to the heat, we didnít spend as much time wandering the parks.

    Ugh. The heat. I heard it reached 100 (I believe it!), which wouldnít be a huge deal for us being from AZ, but the humidity killed us. Despite this, we still managed to have a great time!

    We headed out from AZ on Wednesday night as soon as my husband got home from work, and checked in to the Anabella at about 11:30pm. We immediately went to bed to check out early the next morning. We left the Anabella before 7:30am to check into the Grand Californian, where we would stay the next two nights, and get into the parks just after 9am to utilize our Magic Morning.

    Knowing it would be a popular ride, our mission was to head straight to Peter Pan to ride it with as short of a wait as possible. We headed under the castle into Fantasyland!



    I was a little disappointed to see the carousel covered for itís refurbishment:



    Itís amazing how much the carousel adds to the entrance of Fantasyland.

    We immediately got in line for Peter Pan.



    And we were on the ride within only about 10 minutes!



    Next, we took a ride on Pinocchio.





    With Magic Morning, Fantasyland got a little crowded. We figured the crowd would disperse once the rest of the park opened up, so we took the time to take some photos while the areas were less congested.

    Even with the power of two, I still canít get this dang sword out of the stone!



    And I took a photo in front of the castle to document my progress.



    Proud daddy-to-be



    And one more belly shot for now (youíll be seeing a lot of theseÖ sorry!)



    Thatís all Iíve got time for this morning Ė hope you all enjoy it so far!

    Take lots of pictures every time you go. That way when your little one complains that you "never take him to Disneyland," you will have proof that you did!

    I absolutely love your dress! It looks like you will be able to wear it post-pregnancy as well.

    Thanks! I'm very, very grateful for the opportunities we've been granted. We have some very generous people here on MC.

    Thanks! I think I'll probably be able to get more wear out of it, luckily!

    I'm going to try, but it all depends on when Sophia decides to make her appearance. If we do go, we'll be toting a 2-3 month old along with us.

    Always happy to meet up with MCers!

    How sweet a name. I wanted to name my youngest that. Ended up with Victoria. First kid was easy, used all our favorite names... then harder.. and even harder. Didn't have a name until the day we were ready to come home from the hospital... felt like a doofus saying..."we haven't decided on a name yet". Congrats again!

    Thanks!! Names are really tricky! I'm guessing we would be in the same boat with three kiddos of the same gender.

    Thank you! Trying to document all I can for her. Hopefully she'll inherit or at least embrace her parents' nerdness. We plan to take her to the parks often, and she'll be going to her first Star Wars convention in 2015! Haha
