    Hayley B's 2013 Disney World Trip Report

    Hi MiceChatters,

    Welcome to my 2013 Disney World Trip Report. I stayed here on 5/16/2013 - 5/21/2013. I haven't been to Disney World since 2006 and I so much looked forward to the so many changes since I've last been here.

    First I would like to mention is my nametag.



    I got my nametag during my 1st Disneyland trip back in 2007. I tell the story of how I got it in my 1st Disneyland trip report too. But the reason I would want to bring it up is because. During this trip while wearing for the first time at WDW. I got about 4 compliments by Cast Members that they love it and 2 characters attention. One cast member asked where did I get it. I had to tell him that I got it at Disneyland back in 2007.

    Okay, now on to the pictures. I'm going to try to do this in 3 or maybe 4 segments. Going by a park a piece.

    I hope that you enjoy my trip report.

    -Hayley B.

    Re: Hayley B's 2013 Disney World Trip Report

    First we'll start out with the Magic Kingdom.







    Here's some of the images that I took of the new Fantasyland.








    Repunzel's Tower



    Beast's Castle



    Gaston's Fountain



    Gaston's Tavern



    At Gaston's Tavern. They have this beverage called "Lefou's Brew". Which is an apple soda with a marshmallow foam topping.



    Right next to Gaston's Tavern. You will find Gaston. Ever since I learned that Gaston has been around I've been so excited and so much wanted to see him. I've always wanted to see him. IMO, he's one of the most gorgeous men in the World of Disney. I only think that about him and Flynn Rider. I've been wanting a picture of them both and I'm so happy to have accomplished with one.

    Gaston saw my nametag. So he immediately said "Hi Hayley". Then he said alot of arrogant and conceded gibberish. Then he asked if I think Belle should marry him. I replied and said 'yes. I always thought that'. He said "Good. Smart people today.". As I started to leave, I said to him 'hopefully he can kill that beast'. He just said something back like, he doesn't want to be violent.

























    Visted old favorites such as the Haunted Mansion.





    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZQwMDfPABc

    One thing that made me very happy. Is that they finally gave my BFF Pete some attention.



    Of course I got my Dole Whip Float. For some that don't know what a Dole Whip Float is. It's a pineapple sherbet in pineapple juice.



    Pele!



    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdS7TEBZ1Bw

    Gave Enchanted Tiki Room a visit.





    This is the first time I got to ride Liberty Belle. Most of the past times, I think Liberty Belle wasn't running. So happy. I've rode Mark Twain and Sailing Ship Columbia and now I can add Liberty Belle to the list.




    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EhYRxCeVhU

    Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid





    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_vy_aHh2ig

    Enjoyed Carousel of Progress and Peoplemover at Tomorrow.







    In Pete's Silly Sideshow Tent. I got to meet Donald & Goofy. The two both gave me a kiss.






    Got to meet Mickey on my last day at Disney World. He bowed to me, once I came up to take a picture with him.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHa1YMCrIws

    Gave Jack Sparrow a visit in the POTC

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfz0oY1CRiM

    Dream-Along With Mickey (the Castle show)











    Lastly some random shots of the Magic Kingdom. Now on to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Re: Hayley B's 2013 Disney World Trip Report

    Now on to Disney's Hollywood Studios. This is the first time I've been here since they changed the park's name. In this trip. I got to eat at the Hollywood Brown Derby and got a reserved seat at Fantasmic. This was my first time learning how to do a reserved seat for anything too.




















    First I gave the Muppets area a visit




    Then I went over to meet Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope. Vanellope pointed to my nametag and just said 'yes, that's me.' and then she just clapped with joy.



















    Gave One Man's Dream a visit










    Then the Great Movie Ride



    Just because I always loved the Johnnie Fedora and Alice Bluebonnet story



    Now on to eating at the Hollywood Brown Derby







    Inside the Hollywood Brown Derby



    She-Crab Soup with Crab Fritters



    Spit-roasted American Bison





    Grapefruit Cake



    Random shot of this building that said Chevrolet on it. My mind just kept playing the "See the U.S.A" jingle while looking at it.



    R2-D2 went by. I hope you can see him.









    Last thing I did before going to see Fantasmic. Was watching Lights, Motors, Action. This time they have Lightning McQueen. Last time, I watched this show, it had Herbie.

    Lastly, enjoyed my reserved seat at Fantasmic.

    Now, on to Epcot....

    Re: Hayley B's 2013 Disney World Trip Report

    Now about Epcot. I got to ride the new Test Track. Unforunately I didn't get to ride Soarin' this time. It was a bit crowded (not super bad). I ended up only being allowed to have 1 fast pass and since Test Track was newly done, I picked that. Soarin was like 80 mins standby, so it was like nah.











    First stop, Club Cool. I only took a picture of the sodas that I kept telling people that I liked. I clearly rememberd Mezzo Mix and then this China one called Smart Watermelon.





    Then checking out the beautiful flowers.


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0T69487_p2k

    Then went to checkout this newest attraction at the Mexico pavilion called Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros







    Wandering around the World Showcase



    One of things I wanted to at the World Showcase was to try some of the foods. I ate some fish and chips at the United Kingsom earlier and when to this cafe in Norway called Kringla.



    At Kringla in Norway. I got this Norwegian Club Sandwich and Viking Chocolate Mousse

    That's pretty much all I did for Epcot. I heard Jeffersons Starship playing. So wanted to see them. But I had an actual seat for the Illuminations and I didn't want to lose it.

    Now, I would like to show you some random stuff. Such as the hotel and some of the stuff that I bought. Like these Oswald the Lucky Rabbit ears.

    This post is going to be for random stuff that I would like to show. Such as the hotel, stuff that I bought, & etc.



    I saw this balloon flying around Downtown Disney. I'm guessing it was for Oz the Great and Powerful







    Pictures of the hotel I stayed at. I stayed at Pop Century. My room was around this Big Wheel Tricycle.



    Again, I'm very happy that they have been giving Pete some attention.





    Lastly, my Oswald the Lucky Rabbit ears. I got Mister Tubby here to model for me.


    I really hope that you enjoyed my 2013 Disney World Trip Report and thanks for stopping by.

    -Hayley B.

    Hayley, I believe (and someone correct me if i'm wrong) that the balloon is the Characters In Flight balloon out of DTD. It's a hot air balloon that you can pay to go up in (it's attached to the ground, so you can only go so high.)

    Super Trip Report. You did some stuff that I didn't get to do on my latest vacation to Disney World. Makes me want to hurry back myself. I ate at the Brown Derby years ago. Interesting food choices there, and I loved the atmosphere. Thanks for posting your pictures for all of us to see.

    That's correct. You go like 300 feet or so in the air. Costs I think $16 or so to do it. I haven't (terrified of heights), but my dad has & said it's cool.


    Nice trip report, but, the flash pictures in the rides were a little distracting.

    Great TR. I also apprecite the way you spell your name as My daughter shares the same , with the same spelling. Apparently it is not the typical way to spell it so we can never find stuff with her name on it.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you for letting me know Audrey. I've never heard about it or the changes that they made in Downtown Disney. I was shocked that they got rid of that McDonald's. Good thing they have a Earl of Sandwich there for breakfast. The only reason I was ever there. I wish I knew about the hot air balloon. I would had love to have done it.

    Thank you Barbaraann. I'm curious to know, what you didn't get to do on your last trip. Yeah, there were too many entree choices that I liked when it came to the Brown Derby. But I sure wanted to try that Grapefruit Cake. If there is ever a next time, I think I'll try Hollywood and Vine next.

    That's awesome that you daughter is also named Hayley. I've come around meeting other Hayleys (and with the same spelling). But yes, my whole life has been hard getting people to spell it right. They normally spell it Haley. I have tell them that I have two y's in my name. I fear for what might my tombstone might read.
