I got 94% on the Disney princess quiz. I missed 2 questions about Sleeping Beauty--since I have never seen it--and 1 question about the Pocahontas sequel. I dont think that's too bad. In most schools, that's still an A. Haha.

I went for 60 minutes on the exercise bike tonight.

Happy Thursday!!

Congrats to Elizabeth Smith on the highest princess quiz score so far princess:
and to BonnieF on turning Alice Blue!! :jumping3:

I have no minutes of my own for yesterday, but the team stands at 2,533 or 32%.

For Thankful Thursday, share a story (if you have one) of when you were thankful for a Disney cast member - at a park, in a store, on the phone...anytime you were just really thankful.

I haven't gotten any real time in for a work out since last Wednesday. I am pretty aggravated about it. I figured by Monday I would much better. I was sick to my stomach until about Tuesday and still have a lot of pain in my neck. I am heading back to the doctor today. I should still hit my goal at this point.

    Sorry you are having a rough time, piglet1979.

    @Elizabeth Smith, impressive score!

    I've certainly had some moments of gratitude toward WDW cast members. Three particularly stand out. 1) the very first Rapunzel my DD met - for having a fairly lengthy, fun conversation with her and making her feel special 2) the staff at Saratoga Springs for a wonderful stay - every cm we encountered was absolutely top notch and that really made us fall in love with the place 3) a cm we met on these boards for making a point to visit with us during a dessert party - it was so nice to meet him in person.

    Back home, 25-minute walk

    Here's my thankful story-

    Back in February 2016, I was supposed to come to WDW for my young nephew's first visit. I was leaving Denver on Tuesday, and the park day was Wednesday (my sister was visiting the folks in Florida, so it was just a one-day deal, staying at All-Star Movies Tuesday night and MK on Wednesday). But then there was a winter storm approaching! That Monday was the only time in my life I have called, changed my flight, thrown things in a suitcase, and was out the door to the airport in an hour. I booked a room for Monday night on the way. I was very grateful for the check-in CMs at All-Star Movies who managed to give me the same room for Monday and Tuesday, and then give my family the connecting room next door for Tuesday night. I had a nice evening to myself on Monday, then didn't even have to move or anything on Tuesday. It was great.

    Good morning, and Happy Fashion Friday!

    Today, lets talk about Disney Bags!

    I love them and have a couple (not the expensive ones, but fun anyway) including a crossbody one kind of like this:

    1573815078899.png

    (but an older pattern) and a canvas tote that was one of those "only $X if you spend $Y in the gift shop" promotions that I still use at home for stuff.


    25 minutes for me yesterday (190/500) and team totals of 2,913 (37%). :cheer2:

    It has pictures of the actors above and several more, each with a short bio and a list of their Disney voices.

    A mere 2/5 on that quiz, yay for inspired guessing. Re: bags, I'm not too creative or fashionable. I generally carry the same one, winter and summer, until it falls apart. I like looking at the Loungefly designs at the parks--super cute!--but no way am I spending $70 or $80 or $90 for a little backpack!

    Good morning, everyone, and congrats to sophy1996!! We've both reached Cheshire Cat Purple!!

    I added 70 minutes (2 hours at the Museum of Science, counted at 1/4, plus another 40 regular minutes walking around Boston) for a new total of 260/500.

    Team totals are 3,033 (39%) and we're 867 minutes from team purple!

    Here's today's Sunday quiz - and you can play in "easy" or "hard" mode:
    Aladdin Quiz

    180 minutes since last check in - horses, walking, strength training

    960/1800

    I have one Disney bag that I use as my park bag - a Vera Bradley hipster in a Mickey pattern. Not my exact one because I'm too lazy to dig it out and photograph it, but it looks like this:

    453154

    Like sophy1996, I look longingly at the adorable loungefly bags, but for my needs, they don't look serviceable. I'd hate to pay that much money for a bag and not actually use it.

    Only 1/5 on the voice actor quiz.

    Considering my lack of success on the other quizzes, I chose easy mode (which my tired, glassesless eyes initially read as sassy mode this morning), and I am an easy mode champion with 100% correct! Finally!

    Had to dash off this morning, so will update totals later.

    For Movie Monday, let’s talk Frozen 2!

    Who’s excited? Who’s not impressed? Who has plans to see it? Who’s waiting for video? Who wishes they had a kid around as an excuse to go?

    Good morning from frigid WDW! We arrived late Saturday night and woke to temperatures in the 50’s on Sunday. It was overcast, dark, really, with a fine mist in the air. So, the cold and damp that gets in your bones. Ugh! I was chilled even with two layers under my down jacket! But, we soldiered on to Food & Wine! Just avoided anything frozen! It was Dapper Day there. Google it - it was so much fun to see so many people dressed up in vintage clothes. I was so impressed!
    I didn’t know a single answer in the actors quiz! But I aced the easy Aladdin!
    I have a Vera Bradley crossbody bag that I usually use on my trips. It’s the navy and green Mickey heads pattern.
    My thankful story goes back to 2012, when hurricane Sandy wiped out our trip. The cast member on the phone was so terrific. She was so sympathetic and canceled our room and made it as if I’d never had the reservation so my points wouldn’t have to go into holding. Then refunded our tickets for the Christmas party, too. She took care of everything for us. It was only a couple of days after the storm so it was nice to hear that the rest of the country had us in their thoughts.
    I’ll add 120 minutes for Saturday and Sunday walking.

    I guess I did a bit better then I thought. I did walk to my car each day from the office so that must be where most of the time came from. I keep track of my time on my Fitbit.
