I wanted to get up early when i was at WL last year and go for a walk but I was too nervous...I don't know why, it's Disney World, not like anything bad will happen.
I am always a little nervous when I go out by myself, too. Especially at the WL because I really was running through the wilderness. But then, like you said, I remind myself its Disney and I am good to go. Running in the dark was a little spooky, though!

I don't know how we got so lucky to hit that sunlight just right. Seems the mojo was already starting as we were walking down that path!

I have so many AK pics, I will never be able to decide which to post!

Jen really knows how to take a good picture! I can't tell the difference between hers and mine when we take the same pic. I do think the Canon point n shoots take great pictures!

OH, don't give up on blt yet. Yeah, its a small room but your girls are still small and I think you would love the location. They would probably like the pool, too because its not real deep anywhere. You have great vision as far as watching the girls and you many like that.

Thanks Michelle & Kathy - we are just picture posting fools! I probably won't post tonight though. I have a soccer game to go to. Let's ask Jen if she will post her front row EE mojo pics, shall we????? Maybe she'll start that update!

HEY JEN - Any chance you will post your front row EE mojo pics since yours are better than mine (since I didn't change the lens). I promise I will post first after that!!!!!!

Ladies, these pictures are gorgeous! This makes me so stinkin' mad that I can't get on the DIS at school anymore.
I'd love to show these photos to my students....

EE Front Row!


I think I will post them as Ride 1 and Ride 2. Twice the fun that way! MEK wanted to ride in the front row and I was in total agreement

First let's go over some rules:


Welcome to the front seat!


1st Hill:


View from first hill:

Her, that's where we'll be after this little first drop...

Wow, that's a crappy shot. I can't believe I shared that one.

Under the archway and up the second hill!


Second hill!



Nice view before...





While we're up here, let's look around.


Still up here... hmm, this has quite the hang time.




Now we're going BBAAACCCCKKKKKWAAARRDDDSS!

(that was taken at a high rate of speed I have NO CLUE how I got that shot )





It's the YETI! Ok, it's his shadow and it's a mediocre shot, but better than I thought. I tried to get a shot of the actual Yeti but I barely saw him. Have they changed that part of the ride?



WOOT! First ride down! Let's do it AGAIN!

Front row on EE!!! You are so brave! I love that ride, but I did discover I can't go on twice in a row.....major headache!!! The Yeti doesn't make a very long appearance. I always thought it should be longer too!

EE Front Row, the Sequel!


One ride down, let's do it again! Maybe I'll get some different angles this time.


They have a cast of DH's footprint, how'd they get that?

More rules..

...ok, good rules.


Still up front and this time with no wait!

I was looking for different angles this time.
Here I am looking behind me over my left shoulder as we went up the big hill.
I will refer to this as the curly-Q later.

Here is behind to the right...





Hanging out up here again

Before we fly backwards and see this!

In real life this picture sucked and I was going scrap it but I did something to it and VIOLA! Not too shabby.


AAAGHHHHH!
After we flew down that hill I turned and snapped this while going through that curly-Q I mentioned earlier.

Again, no clue how I got this moving as we were.



WHEW! Made it through Everest twice so now it's time to meander back to the Safari. Snapping pics all along the way.

Great pics -- twice -- on EE, Jen. I miss most of that because my eyes are always closed on most of the ride.

Awesome job Jen! They turned out really good. I think probably better than Denny's did last year. I think you got more parts of the track then he did. Thanks for posting them tonight and I will give individual replies tomorrow. I will note that we had to wait for about 4 or 5 couples to ride front row before we got it on the first ride. But second ride we basically walked onto the front row. We got in the front row queue and there was no one there. Now that's some mojo!

Denny's last year.....Clearly it was cloudier......





What the.........?
