I started my March report while on Spring Break and I think I got 3 entries done over Spring Break even though I had wanted to finish it. Now who knows how long it will take.Behind again - sorry!! But it's spring break week so my goal is to finish the whole report this week. Let's see if that actually happens!!
Congrats!DH and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary
I love it! Though I am wondering what the big gift was.My big gift from him was awesome, but my little gift was my favorite (shh...don't tell him that )
I love It's a Small World, and I have almost bought myself this limited edition magic band about ten times. It's probably still in my ShopDisney cart in all honesty, so I was very excited! The coffee mug was just a bonus.
I got some from Main Street Candle Company and they are very mushy too. But I do like the smells.I also ordered some wax melts and air freshener circles from Magic Candle Co.
If you can't see the labels on the melts, I got Flying Over Africa, African Lodge, Banshee Flight, and Yacht Resort. Flying Over Africa actually smells like the part in Soarin' that I wanted it to. Very fresh cut grass-ish. My favorite of all of them by far. Banshee Flight is the same scent as the island scene in Soarin' in addition to FOP. It's ok. Yacht Club is the green clover and aloe scent used at many of the resorts, and is pleasant. African Lodge doesn't smell anything like AKL to me. It's very sweet and perfumey and gives me a little bit of a headache. A complaint I have is that the wax is very, very soft. Like, it will smush in your hand. That also makes it a royal pain to get out of your warmers once solidified. I like to pop my solid melted wax out rather than use the cotton ball method on melted wax, so what's probably a minor annoyance to some is a big deal to me.
I'd love some scent circle for the car. I use B&BW scents but I'd much prefer Disney scents.The scent circles are Norway, Haunted, Tiki Terrace and Polynesian. I have Haunted in my jeep, and initially it smelled like musty butterscotch. I know that sounds weird, but it's all I could think of. After the first day it mellowed and it smells ok now, but nothing like I'd imagine a Haunted Mansion smelling like. Maybe Haunted Karamel Kuche is more accurate?? DH has Tiki Terrace in his truck and I like it. Very lightly tropical.
We haven't opened the other two yet, but Norway is supposed to smell like Laila (I hope!) and Polynesian is supposed to be tropical. We shall see I guess!
I just go with Day _ Part _. So original, right??Again with no good chapter name. I think I've officially given up!
Sounds ominous.....One thing I need to mention, because it's what this first post covering this day is going to be about - it was EMH day, but they were scanning everyone's bands at the tapstiles. There was no designated lanes open for EMH/breakfast, none of the CMs were asking, "are you here for a tour/breakfast/EMH" like they usually do, and there was a lot of confusion, and management CMs on walkies making their way toward the scanners, and just a buzz of something "oops" in the air, do you know what I mean? Like, you could just tell some kind of something was going on. My initial thought was that they just didn't have a land cleared or something, and we needed to be prepared for delay.
Uh oh....But I started noticing something that was a little concerning...no one was entering Fantasyland or Tomorrowland like normal. Just a few small groups at a time. And big, huge, lines were forming. What the heck was going on??
Oh geez. So annoying.The CMs were rescanning ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE'S MAGIC BANDS before letting them into the park. We got almost up to the CMs when one a manager came over and said, "Just let them in, it doesn't matter if they're not resort guests, EMH will be over before we get them all scanned at this point", and it was like an insane free for all flood of humanity. It was also about 15 minutes into EMH at this point.
