View Full Version : Ranatra

<font color=red>We decide on a quick breakfast at Roaring Forks with Jen & Greg, we really like to get an early start in the morning when we have the most energy!</font>
<font color=red>We then hop on the bus to MGM Studios. I can't wait to ride "Rock"N" Roller Coaster", we get there early, and there is no line! Yippppeeee off we go. Omg, I was not prepared for that take off, but I decide I like it and we go again! </font>

<font color=red>Ok, now we head over to "Tower Of Terror", the lines are not bad here either. This ride seems a little different to me somehow since I rode it last in 99, What is it?? This ride is great! even better than I remember!</font>

<font color=red>Around 1:00 we decide to have lunch at Sci-Fi. We only wait about 5 minutes to get seated. This is my first time here, I love it! We had the steak, which was very good! One of my favorite lunches of the week.</font>

<font color=red>we decide to head back to the hotel for a little rest before we head back out this evening. On the way out, I find a stand with 2001 Christmas Bulbs, so I stop to buy one. I ended up coming out with a 2001 photo album, Christmas Bulb and a sweatshirt, something to remember this trip by :D </font>

<font color=red>We had 7:30 reservations at Rose & Crown for dinner, so we head out to Epcot to meet Jen and Greg for dinner. DD and friend declined dinner with us and headed to Planet Hollywood. We had a great table outside in the back, perfect for Illuminations. Billy and I ordered the "Fish & Chips" recommended highly by our waitress. The food was good, the service was good, and we ordered dessert to drag out our meal waiting for illuminations to start. We had the chocolate cake, which was excellent! We also had a good view of "Tapestry of Nations" I had taken my digital camera along, and was trying to capture everything, Tapestry and Illuminations. I got some good shots.</font>

<font color=red>We headed straight out to the bus and the line was long, but we did get on the first bus. I skipped the hot tub tonight, and called for wake up at 6:30, tomorrow was going to be an early day for Universal Studios. I watched the news for a while to catch the weather, and saw how it was going to really warm up the rest of the week! Maybe tomorrow I can leave my sweatshirt home!!</font>

I love the picture! You are a braver soul than I, there is no way I would go on those rides, I take the chicken exit. I warned DH about the take off on RnR, he thanked me for that afterwards!

I'm not sure when it changed, but I know that ToT used to have 1 big drop instead of multiple smaller ones, maybe that's what was different from last time you went.

Love that picture! Thanks for the trip report. I went to the Rose and Crown in September and my mouth is watering just reading about the famous "fish and chips". It's great that you got to play with the adults while the teens went off for awhile!

Great picture, Ranatra, you are brave.. Not me, chicken for both those rides.. My DH and family tell me that they do more drops as opposed to just one big one.. Maybe that is what is different on TOT this time..

I think ToT does have more drops thatn it did a few years ago. (Didja try any beer at R&C? DH & I got the sampler of 6 differest beers - found out real quick which ones we liked/didn't like! Yuk on the guiness - yum on the Harps!)
