    Band of Gypsies back in living color (trip report)

    We went to the resort today to renew our APs. First stop, the Bank of Main Street. We see Donald while we wait in a 30 minute line.




    First ride of the day, POTC with only a 10 minute wait. But on way to POTC we pickup some fastpasses for Indy.






    We saw on the Time Board on Main Street that Haunted Mansion was closed. After riding POTC we thought we'd go check for ourselves, and much to our delight HM was open for business.






    I'm still learning to take pictures with my new camera, but I thought this mistake photo of the Hitch Hiking ghosts had a pretty cool effect on it, so I'm going to lie and say that I meant to do that...






    Beautiful roses in New Orleans Square.




    Aww... How cute!




    The work on TSI.






    Sneaking away...




    Mini-Jack relaxes river-side while waiting for TSI to open.






    Time for our Indy ride...







    Time for the meet.

    A micechatter made these for the meet. While I did catch the candy bag, I didn't catch her name (sorry and Thank You, Thank You, Thank you). Originally the bag was labeled "Mice Chat", but due to my husband's fat fingers, it looks like "Ice Chat". And yes, he is wearing a pink princess lanyard (Don't ask).




    The Rocker, nice to meet you.




    AB1 and Hilsbro




    And the rest of the Mice Chatter photos I took happened to be the backs of everybody's heads. While this may be interesting to me, it may be not interesting to you, for a clear picture of MC'ers faces, please see the other Trip Reports.



    After the meet, a group of us decided to eat at the French Market. I apologize to all vegetarians for the following photos.






    While we enjoyed our meal, the RSB Jazz Band played on.






    Well folks, it's getting late for us. Time for us to turn in for a short night's slumber. We will continue the rest of our Trip Report in the A.M.

    Great trip report so far! Of all the food pics I've ever seen on this board, the one of the French Market's fried chicken is one of the best I've ever seen! Making me hungry!

    I enjoyed meeting you guys at the meet back in December. Hope to see all you guys again soon!

    Love the pics!
    Was great to see you guys (as brief as it was!)
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Band of Gypsies back in living color (trip report)

    Ok, with Lunch in our bellies, we make our way over to Princess Fantasy Faire. While we were sitting there we saw Britt Dietz, of Disneycastmagic, as mentioned last week by Frogberto, taking photos with his humongous zoom lens.

    The girls had a great time at the show, especially my six year old.







    Next on the agenda was a ride on Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blaster, a personal favorite of Pezz Lightyear and his Pezlings. On the way we snapped a few photos.



    My daughter, Gypsy#5, with the White Rabbit statue.





    Man, does the little mermaid look rough?!








    Next stop after BLAB, was Big Thunder Mountain. On the way we took yet another picture of Sleeping Beauty's Castle.




    Big Thunder Mountain was closed and they didn't have an Estimated Time for re-opening. So to kill some time we went on the Columbia. Unfortunately, it wasn't running either, so we settled for a self-guided tour of the ship.






    Gypsy#5 swabs the deck. Good luck getting her to do the same at home.






    Prisoners. Muahaha!!!




    Big Thunder still wasn't open, so we took advantage of this time to rest our feet, have some snacks, and watch Billy Hill and the Hill Billies in the Golden Horseshoe Saloon. These guys are hilarious, if you've never been, you have to go!




    Big Thunder Mountain



    Finally, Big Thunder Mountain is open. With our fast passes, we literally walked on, and we got the last cart. So Gypsies #3 and #5 were able to do the goat-trick.



    Here's Gypsy #4, earlier at the meet, she announced that she "Will Work for Stitch Pins".



    Dorky Mom moment:
    During the ride, I decided to take a few pics of the little gypsies. I turned around to take a picture, which I guess was on a turn, and BAM, I got hit on the forehead with my lens cap. Ouch! The entire BOG were laughing so hard that we had tears running out of our eyes.




    I noticed the work on TSI. There was water running out of these pipes, I wonder what they are draining.







    At this point, we decided it's time to head home, on the way we passed the Westward Ho Trading Co. I thought I'd stop and take a peek at what they have.













    This penguin from Mary Poppins, had a shadow walking behind him, mimicking his every move. Seeing my husband waddle like a penguin, made a few heads turn. Notice the man on the bench.




    Window Display.











    We had a great time, especially seeing old friends and making new ones. We can't wait to get back to the Park, and do it all over again.

    Loved the Trip Report and the pictures! Wow!

    This one is especially noteworthy:


    She is soo cute with the *heart* thought bubble over her head!

    Yes, it's too bad the PEZlings and I were unavailable. They especially love the Princess Fantasy Faire and we all have a Blast on BLAB!

    I almost forgot to mention: BABY DUCKS!

    I am thrilled you are in the AP's again!
