Mickey x's 3

New Year, New Goals, & Lots of New Exciting Things to look forward to.

I could sit here and promise that this year I'd write a post everyday and as much as I'd love to, reality is I sometimes suffer from writer's block therefore I'm only promising to write atleast once a week.
The end of my year was ahhhmazzzing!!!! Spent the weekend with 2 of my loves, my Honey and Mickey. We went to Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Magic Kingdom. My favorite of the 3 parks, other than seeing Mickey at each park, at Animal Kingdom my favorite was The Lion King show. At Hollywood Studios,it was watching Walt's "One Man's Dream Show". And at Magic Kingdom, the Fireworks!!!
By the way, if any of you ever decide to spend NYE at Disney, I say you think twice. I've been to Disney about a dozen times this past year, and recall one of the visits, the park closed due to reaching maximum capacity. After planning my trip, I did some research and thought, I will make it to park at the time it opens, which is at 8am. When we arrived one side of the parking lot was already full; (Say what it wasn't even 8am) Once parked we rushed in to the park, and when we got in we were good to go.
I've never seen so many people in my life. The lines at the rides were a minimum of 100mins, not to mention the bathroom lines, you'd think they were giving away free stuff when you got there. 
By the time it was 7pm we were so exhausted and it was so congested, that I was ready to go. When the Electrical Parade began the streets were closed down, and you were only allowed to go one way and had to walk around the park to get to the other side. Luckily we found our way around and found a spot in front of the castle and sat for a bit, but I then realized I had to go to the bathroom. I knew once I left my spot, I was not only going to lose it, but I was not going to be able to get back in, but I knew I wasn't going to be able to hold it for 5 hours, so I got up and left. My Honey found another spot on Main Street and waited as I went to the bathroom, (Did I mention the lines to the ladies room was atleast a 5-10min wait?) when I was done and went back to where I left my Honey, they had blocked off that area and asked him to leave, leaving me on Main Street with no cell phone reception, freaking out, and not knowing where to start looking for him. After calling him 5 times I was finally able to get through and found him in Tomorrowland. From there we had to walk halfway around the park to try to find another spot to rest. At this point I was so exhausted it didn't matter where I saw the fireworks or if I even saw them, but my Honey was determined to find me the perfect spot so I can see the show and he made it happen! "He truly is the BEST"!
The park was overcrowded, we were beyond exhausted but the firework show at midnight was AMAZING! So well worth the wait! T
hank you Honey for not letting me talk you into leaving!
Again if you ever plan on visiting Disney for NYE be prepared to stand in lines for 2 hours+, bathroom lines approx 5-10 mins so don't wait till the last minute to run to the potty cause you may just NOT make it, you WILL bump into people, your feet WILL hurt so much till they become numb, but at the end, the 15 minute Firework show is well worth it.
Overall my trip was great, my Honey spoiled me to the fullest, and it was truly one of the greatest endings and beginnings to the year!
Enough of my babbling...
Here are 3 new pictures of Me & Mickey, not that you haven't seen enough.
& I got my NY Kiss from Mickey!
Perfect ending to 2012!

  1. NYE in Disney is super hectic! Did it twice as a child and could never go back during that time! lol...I even got stuck on a ride 10 mins before midnight and we had to walk out of the ride and through the robots!
    I'm glad you were willing to wait for the experience at midnight!
    I'm sure every park celebrates it differently and maybe that should be your goals over the next 3-4 years (hint hint!)
