As hard as I've been working, I've been playing even harder.
Friday through Wednesday, anytime that I wasn't working, I was playing in the parks.
Friday after work, I went out with Taryn and Graihagh. We took pictures in front of Cinderella's castle and went to T-Rex for dinner. I can honestly say that I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. Taryn even found a prince charming of sorts ;)
Saturday and Sunday weren't really that exciting, so I'll skip to Monday.
Monday night was Mandy's birthday. I made her a cake (chocolate cake with oreos and M&M's mixed in with chocolate frosting and oreos and M&M's on top) and we went to Epcot to celebrate. We met some characters and I got muscled out of a lot of the pictures and got mad about it, so I didn't even bother uploading those pictures. Dinner was good though - we ate in China and I got orange chicken and it was grrrrreat!
Tuesday was an eventful day. At 6:50 (yeah. that means I was up at 4:30), my boss Sidney took us on a backstage tour of the Haunted Mansion. We got to go on the ride, but we also got to walk through the ride and see all of the special effects and hidden secrets. It was awesome...yet early. Very early.
My boss, Andy, came in on his days off to give some of us from Fantasyland a tour of the parks and their holiday decorations. That started at 1 though, so before that, I got together with Theresa and Jillian and we met the fairies and princesses and rode some rides before we got together with Andy.
Andy took us to the Grand Floridian (they have a life size gingerbread house there - it's pretty sweet). We also went to the Boardwalk and Hollywood Studios and saw the Pixar Block Party Bash (whoa.) and saw the Osbourne Spectacle of Lights. This Osborne guy went nutso on his own house for the holidays...so nutso, that he bought the 2 houses next to his so he could decorate those too. So, they use millions of bulbs to create this:
(for some reason, this might not be working...i'll get it up eventually...)
Wednesday, Theresa and I signed up for Andy's other tour which started at 4, so we got together early and went to Hollywood Studios to meet my main man, Prince Caspian. I totally love him. As you can see :)
After we met up with Andy, We went to the Grand Floridian again, Magic Kingdom (to see the castle lighting), and Epcot. The places we went weren't the most fascinating, but Theresa and Andy were hilarious and talking with them was probably the best part of the tour :)
