DISNEY VACATION - PART I...  
Hi guys! I'm back from my trip to The Disney Complex in Orlando! We all had a fantastic time...it was my first time staying at a resort on Disney property and I loved it! We stayed at the Port Orleans-Riverside Resort...it was incredible! We were in the bayou area and it was so beautiful with the lush greenery, ponds, flowers, wildlife, etc. There were also 7 pools, one being a huge themed pool with slides and waterways and stuff. Here are a few pics...

PORT ORLEANS-RIVERSIDE PICS...









Walking to one of the resort restaurants...





These beds were very high and very comfy...





After arriving at the resort around 3:30, we washed up, had dinner and headed to Disney's Magic Kingdom to see the Electric light parade...I took a few pics but they didn't come out very well. BTW, I took 12 rolls of 24...LOL...but I won't make you look at all 288!

We awoke early the next morning because we had reserved seats at one of the Princess Breakfasts for Gweni...this one takes place at Akershus Castle in the Norwegian Pavillion at Epcot! The Breakfast was delicious (so were the waiters) and Gweni was in Heaven! Here's MY little Princess with Disney's Princesses (LOL...and NO, Gweni isn't a smiley kid, but I guarantee she was LOVING it!!

THE PRINCESSES...



NORWAY...



BELLE and Gweni...



JASMINE (her favorite) and Gweni...



MULAN and Gweni...



AURORA (Sleeping Beauty) and Gweni...



Our waiter (with my sis) who was very sweet and very tall (Imagine, ALL Norwegian waiters!)





After the breakfast, we explored EPCOT's WORLD SHOWCASE...more on that in my next post!!

FARVELL!

that waiter is cute, I hope you left him a good "tip". I'm glad you had lots of fun. And can Gwen not smile? LOL. And your sis looks like she lost weight since the last time I saw her!

LOL! Gwen only smiles if she is teasing you or saying something naughty that she's not supposed to say!

The waiter was sooooooo nice! Such a sweetheart!

OMG! My sis would LOVE you for that! LOL! She was in 'that time'...and bloated! She threatened me not to show anyone her pics!

No pics of YOU?? *pouts*

The place you stayed looks beautiful! And I remember that great Stave Church in the Norway area. Do they still have the Norway ride there?

Oooh, cute blondie waiter... ^_^ And your neice is adorable even when she's being serious.

Welcome back!

12 rolls of film, Adey...3 pics of me! LOL! 2 headless and one 'up the nose' taken by Griff!


YES! We all rode the 'Maelstrom'! We all liked it, except Griffin! LOL...he wasn't very happy with the trolls!!

Thanks Adey! I adore my Gweni! She is perfectly content...she just isn't a smiler!

Jaseslavetopassion on May 1st, 2006 11:48 pm (UTC)
In a few of those pics, you can really tell how proud and please Gweni is. lol! She is just so adorable!

You didnt point out that that was your great house that the party was at!

~smooches~ I love you!
Mark: Young Thorboywondermark on May 2nd, 2006 12:45 am (UTC)
Yep...my Viking great house where my adorable Jase awaits with a full horn of mead!\

That's so cool that you can catch the pics with her secret smile! (Belle and Aurora!)

The Port-Orleans Riverside pics were gorgeous. And the first picture from walking to one of the resort restaurants.
Glad to hear you had a great time! ♥

Thanks, Kas! It was a wonderful place to stay! I could have stayed there for a month easily!
Su: rikuoralphiere on May 2nd, 2006 03:41 am (UTC)
This was the perfect thing to see coming home from work!! OMG I love the pics, and would gladly see all 288!! Gweni is so beautiful, as is your sister - tell her she looks amazing for someone who wrangles wild beasties!!

I'm so glad you had fun, but I'm also so glad you're back!!
Mark: Calvin Hobbes Hugboywondermark on May 2nd, 2006 01:22 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much, Su! You are so so sweet!

Next time we go, how about YOU and YOUR beasties going?!

Can you imagine the kids?! LOL!!

You were an hour and a-half away from you ... plus, I used to work at Disney -- I was one of the Tigger's ... so, I know you had fun!
Mark: comic disney donald oboyboywondermark on May 2nd, 2006 01:43 pm (UTC)
OMG, Bryce! That is so cool! I think I would like to be a Disney character!

I did...I had a blast!

hee - i don't know, that looks like the very smallest suggestion of a smirk in the belle picture *grin* ...i wasn't much of a smiler as a kid, either, and i still do it way more online than i do in rl...

ok, now I want to go to the magic kingdom...*pouts*
Mark: comic disney wartboywondermark on May 2nd, 2006 01:44 pm (UTC)
Check out the look in the Aurora pic too, Gabe! Jase calls her a Mona Lisa smiler! LOL!!

You and your guy should go to The Magic Kingdom one day! :)
Michaelmikey89 on May 2nd, 2006 12:27 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you had a great time.. :D
And Gwen is adorable... :)
Looking forward to seeing more of the pictures.. :) and what attractions you liked the most.. :)

Thanks, Mikey! You're a sweetie! *hugs*

Beautiful pics! Gwen is just adorable!
Mark: comic disney wartboywondermark on May 2nd, 2006 03:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Anne!! I think she's adorable too...but I'm partial, of course! :)
Aurélienorey on May 2nd, 2006 03:08 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the post it's so nice. I hope I can go to that park one day to compare it with the one back home.
I agree with Denden about your sis I was wondering if it was another sister but then did not make sense cause of the kids lol
And Gwen looks fine on thos epictures if she overdoes it unc' mark won't bring her back prolly :P
As for the waiter well, I think a trip to Scandinavia would do me so good this Summer. :)
Mark: comic disney donald oboyboywondermark on May 2nd, 2006 04:02 pm (UTC)
WOW! Thanks, Aure! I'll tell sis what you said!
You should definately go to the Disney Parks in your time here, hon! You will see many of your countrymen there! As a matter of fact, I have a pic of a cute French boy that I will post later! He is an artist and did siloutte cutouts of Gweni and Griffin!

WELCOME BACK!!!
I am so glad you had fun. I want to go again. It has been a long time since the last time I was there!
The resort is beautiful. And the Norwegian place, OH MY GOD! Delightful!
I think I would have fainted there. Or at least would have not been able to eat with all those cute blond waiters parading around. Oy! You know I die for cute blonds. ;)
Your sister is beautiful and I can tell Gwen was having a great time. Eyes don't lie! :)
Check my updates, I got few very good news happening to me!!! :)
I want to see more pictures, and this time there better be at least one with you in it! Ok?
Love to have you back!!! *Hugs*
Mark: comic disney wartboywondermark on May 2nd, 2006 04:04 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for all of the wonderful words, Jorge! You are so so sweet!
I will make a point to check out your posts, hon!

(Norway was stimulating! *smile*)

Welcome back, Mark! I'm so glad that you had a good time. I bet that Gweni was in heaven with so many of the princesses right there next to her. Did they have Snow White and Cinderella there too?

I look forward to seeing more of your pictures :)
Mark: comic disney dancing musesboywondermark on May 3rd, 2006 01:18 am (UTC)
Thank you, Carrie!

They have a few Princess breakfasts...Gwen chose this one because Jasmine would be there! LOL! Jasmine is her favorite!
