August trip? I can't imagine how hot it was! We were there the first week of June & I thought the heat was unbearable at that time! Sorry to hear you were not feeling well. It seems like your naps helped a little. Can't wait to read more...

Day Four (at least part of day four) – Magic Kingdom



Well, awoke Thursday, not feeling quite as bad, thank goodness. Still trouble breathing though. We hit the bus by 8am wanting to make sure we are there for rope drop this time. DH and I were there last year and rode Splash and BTMR a couple times (again and again without waiting) cause we were there at rope drop.

Well, much to our surprise when we got there, there was NO ONE waiting to get it. The gates were open and Main Street was practically empty.



Stopped for some photo pass pics and found out it was EMH… HOW IN THE WORLD DID I MISS THIS???? We do not normally go during these hours, but were amazed at how ‘empty’ if felt. Found out we couldn’t go to Adventure land yet so we went to Fantasyland

This is my family walking into the castle


When we got to the other side of the castle we found where everyone was. We walked right onto IASW (as annoying as this can get, it’s a tradition for us).



We then walked into Mickey’s PhilharMagic. We like this show and it was cool and relaxing. When we got done that it was just after 9am, so off to Adventure land. NO ONE was on the walkway.



Walked over to Splash and there was a 20 minute wait so we got fp for BTMR and got in line for splash. This was probably the very longest we waited for anything all week (thank goodness, I can’t stand waiting in line). We got wet on Splash as we were in the front row this time. Our ride photo



After wards, walked a little then it was time for our fp. After that we took the train to Toon Town. We took the pathway that comes out to the side of Space Mountain. The stand by line at that time, wasn’t too bad (I honestly don’t remember what it was) so we went ahead and got in. This was an awesome ride, UNLESS you are 6’ and get stuck in one of the front cars (of either section). Hubby was squished and his legs were so cramped. He was the one responsible to hold the ‘bag’ while on this ride. This is the small back pack I keep my camera, wallet, money, passes and ponchos in. Well fortunately, he held on good to that cause he lost his Brita water bottle. We’ve been using these for three years now (the best investment I’ve made) and now we are down one water bottle. We did have a good time though, so grabbed fp on the way out.

Walked around Tomorrow Land and did Carousel of Progress (walked on) and Transit Authority (walked on). Did the Monster’s Inc Laugh Club. This was adorable. Hubby was picked to ‘talk’ to one of the monsters. This was a short wait as it was starting five minutes from when we went in (so a nice short wait).

Well, I will have to end here, but will try to do the rest of this day tomorrow. On a side note, still sick here, not as bad, but not better yet, dd is struggling along, but now ds and dh are sick. What a mess.

thanks all

I'd like to thank all those that have been hanging out and reading about our adventure. I love sharing our Disney memories. And as 'easy' as this is, you think I'd journal in my scrapbooks Maybe some day I'll do that...

I think that this link will work to view our photopass pictures. I have not ordered the cd yet as I am waiting to see if I get a code for a discount.

I have been enjoying your trip report! I hope you all are feeling better soon. It seems like when you have a cold or bug in the heat and summertime they seem so much worse. Get better soon.

PrincessAlways,

I see you are from PA, do you fly out of Philly (or are you on the 'other' side)? From your siggy, I see you have a 'long' weekend trip coming up. What constitutes a long weekend? Do you go Friday to Monday? See the wheels are turning and I'm trying to 'justify' a weekend trip in October to check on dd

Great Photopass pics. I love the "Tink" pic. I was told they are no longer doing it so I could not have it done.
Looking forward to the rest of your report.

Scott,

That was from our last day and I was so excited when the photographer said to do that (I knew what he was doing, having seen them over the years, but never fortunate enough to have one). As soon as he was done, I said, thanks so much, I've always wanted that. He said they were resurrecting that shot. While we were there, the Orlando paper had an article on them 'revamping' Tink... so hopefully you'll be able to get that on your next trip.

Yes, I fly out of Philly. The "long weekend" is indeed Friday to Monday. Can't wait!

Your Photopass pictures are great! I reallly like the ones with your kids holding Tink!
