Just lovely fireworks photo in front of the castle...

I agree that Buzz seems less crowded since TSM-which is ashame-its still a really fun ride...I love spinning in the ships too...

So you got nailed by the spitting camel too huh?

Love the HM at dusk...extra creepy...

Sounds like you all had a fabulous day...

(Not liking the sound of your next update...Missing kids...)

I think I remember you saying you had a Fuji Finepix S2000 (I remember because mine is a Fuji Finepix S1000 ) and yes, you do have continuous mode. There are two buttons on the top of the camera - one toggles face detection on and off, and the other lets you choose various continous mode options.

I loved your update!! What great pictures!!! I'm glad Demetri was able to not only enjoy his favorite once but twice!!!!! Part of the fun of Disney is being able to say you know what I'm going to do that next time!!! I can't wait to read more!!
So true.... my list for next time keeps growing the more trip reports I read!

How was your score? I think mine was defective....

Yep, smack in the eye.

Love the HM at dusk...extra creepy...

It was sooo weird, I took another shot 10 minutes later and got the same darkness even though it was blindingly sunny!

Sounds like you all had a fabulous day...

Another great update and lots of fun pics. How fun Demetri got to be part of the show on the JC!

I still love Buzz Lightyear but the thing that annoys me is the triggers are so hard to use! Dad mentioned something about how it seemed like his gun would work once every three shots. I seriously wish they would redo it so they are like the Disneyland ones. There your guns are attached to a cord so you can pull them out and they light up/vibrate so you know you hit a target. It works a LOT better!

Argg! Can I steal your Fireworks shots? They're so great! I need to figure out how to get my camera to do that - my fireworks shot leaves the shutter open for about 5 seconds, which means they turn out awful...

I love Splash Mountain too! So much more than it's Animal Kingdom counterpart...

(you'll see why soon.)

And I'm glad you're all having a good time - although I am a little leery of the next update.

You got soo much done!

They are doing a pretty major rehab of Space Mountain, but not as extensive as the one at DL. SM at DL was closed for over a year.

Absolutely great firework shots! I have a fireworks setting on my camera but they still don't turn out very well.

I wonder why they would have done it differently? The DL version DOES sound better! I thought I was doing really well picking off targets left, right and center..... but my score says otherwise.

Your shots weren't awful! Have you tried a mini tripod? The fireworks look great in your pics, its the castle that was a teeny blurry. I want to try that next trip, especially for Spectro.

I love Splash Mountain too! So much more than it's Animal Kingdom counterpart...

(you'll see why soon.)

uh-oh

I can't wait to see the finished product. I've heard rumors of what the changes are and they sound great.

That's why I like the continuous option. Out of six shots, on or two are bound to be good!

Thanks! I loved how creepy and dark the ride looked when everything else was so bright and cheery!

the rumored changes to SM do sound great.

Have you seen the pics of the demolition they are doing right now to the old skyway building--CRAZY.

I hadn't seen the pics but looked them up. Wow. I had no clue WDW used to have a Skyway! That stroller parking area by IASW makes more sense to me now. Hope they make it a restaurant but its a shame they couldn't have just converted the existing building.

I wonder why they're demolishing it? If they weren't going to do something with the space why not just leave it? Hopefully, something new is coming.
