Its been a While

Ok so we got here(to florida) last Saturday night bout 10 at night i think.  We do the usual unpack a bit go to bed in hopes of the trailer coming sunday morning and unpackin the rest of our MILLIONS of things then....well alas it did not show up until sunday night so we unpack and do whatever we needed and we finally finish moving.....tuesday afternoon.

May 20th 2011----We decided we wanted to go to some parks before we start the CP and since this was the day of the opening of the newly enhanced Star Tours our first stop was DHS.  70 min wait for Toy story mania which was to be expected then it said a 75 minute wait for Star was not 75 minutes maybe more like 30-40.  After that a little car ride over to the magic kingdom and hit up a few rides there which is where i discovered a Ride Counter for a ipad.  This thing is from and it counts the amount of times you have ridden most rides in the WDW parks, even has the monorails and ferry boats in there.  Since we have not been here long my most rode attractions are Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain both at 2.  New thing on my bucket list is to go on Haunted Manison 100 times while i am here.  Speaking of the Bucket list 2 things.
1. I will be officially starting that and the character list on Monday or whenever i get my blue main gate pass
2. One more addition will be to find EVERY hidden mickey on property well at least the ones in my Ipad app which is 828 different ones.  This app is based off of Steve M. Barrett's Hidden Mickey books and have a list of all the current Hidden mickeys and has an easy to use system to keep track of ones you found, i personally recommend this app to anyone who even has an interest in Hidden Mickeys, oo it is Ipod based so it looks a little blurry on ipads but dont matter still awesome.

Some Muppet Vinyls updates got up to 6 or 7 on series 2 and still lookin for chaser for series 1 also got my first Star Wars series Vinyl Lando so gonna start working on those

Well for right now this is it i wanted to use this post to get back into the bloggin swing of things so i can start doing it often i will have my next post up monday after we check in at Casting and i will be posting some pictures and videos soon so keep checking back.

Ok so its been a while and i have been thinking about something to write about it and finally i found it.....FastPasses.  I was cleaning out my wallet the other day and found some more to add to my collection.  I found Splash Mountain, Mission space, Maelstrom, Rock n Roller Coaster, and Kali River Rapids.  This got me thinking since i dont have alot left to get, Does anyone have any older "extinct" fastpasses such as Haunted Mansion and Muppet Vision(not sure if they actually had Fastpasses here).  If anyone has any extras i would love if somehow i could get them and add them to my book, also does anyone know where i can find a list of all the attractions that have/or had Fastpasses.  Also i found a Complimentary fastpass that we got from Guest Relations when some rides were closed down.  Its awesome il add the picture soon.
Ok also i have a surprise fastpass from Winnie the Pooh that actually gives you a pass for Philharmagic i didnt even know alot of these existed but ya if anyone has any info on fastpasses please comment and let me know.
On another note Just over a month til I move down and then like another week after that i start the job im gettin pumped.  Well everyone il see ya real soon and get ready for alot of updates only a month away.

Day 27 of 30

Well we are almost done with the 30 Day Challenge and that means we are that much closer to starting the CP!!!!!!!!!! WooHoo!!
ok now day 27
Favorite Walt Disney World breakfast?
This is a very very tough one considering i dont really like breakfast
I would have to say
Cape May Cafe

Il have to get some better pictures when i go down for the CP.  This really is a quality breakfast i mean alot of the Disney buffet/character breakfast's are essentially the same except for theme.  I just really like this theme and the food is very very good.

Day 26 of 30

Favorite Souvenir????

Pins are awesome and i have alot i would say around 500 possibly more.  Pins are an obsession and they are just so unique and there are so many that truly anyone can love pins cause there is a Disney pin for you.  The best are the limited edition ones.
There is a Cheshire cat Lollipop pin, seen below, that is limited edition of 200.  I have 2 so i own 1% of all the Cheshire cat lollipop pins ever made and that is what makes Disney pins amazing.  I cannot wait to get to Disney and pin trade ALLLLLLLLL the time
Limited Edition of 200
I love Muppet, Figment, and Pluto pins also rare limited edition ones so if you ever wanna trade let me know!!
Also we start the CP in 2 months so everyone get excited!!!!
