Of course now - when I get home - I want to pull out my toy monorail and set it up and watch it go round and round and push the button making it give the dialog.

Anyway, the point was that it's been around forever, but looks and feels exotic and futuristic. And we totally agree there!

No, basically it was "you did one so I'm going to do one too." Peer pressure, essentially. Please don't jump off a bridge, because I may have to also. And I hate proving my mother right.

We've only been twice, but I think we'll always have to do the TTA and It's A Small World. Or, at least, I'll always want to do them so we'll ALL have to do them. Oh yeah, and Tom Sawyer's Island.

well, left this morning at 4:30am to beat the traffic into philly. dw and i had a nice time, we walked around center city for a few hours. (bought 10 soft pretzells for $6 at the philly pretzell factory.) we had breakfast at the middletown rest. with some of phillys finest in blue. the radiation oncologist said there were two treatments for the optic nerve. a one time "zap" or a 8 week, monday thriugh friday in philly "trickle zaps" shes leaning towards the one time zap since she is blind in that eye already. we have to see the nero surg. for his take on it than the three doctors, including the dr who did the operation, get together and agree on which treatment is best.were also hoping for the one time zap. we go back aug.18th. to the other two drs. i even seen a women, bout 28 or so, walking down walnut street, wearing a new york yankee t-shirt. there are two things you dont wear to philly, your yankee shirt or your dallas cowboy shirt. this lady had to be nuts!!! i dont know how far she got but i didnt hang around to find out. maybe they would let her off the hook because she was a female but wow!!! thats like wearing a redsox hat in yankee stadium.

Glad it's not just me. I have the castle. Can't decide if I want to buy Epcot or the monorail.

Hey guys. Just checking in live from the COntemporary here in sweltering DW. Just OKed $9.95 for 24 hours of internet access (I had a few drinks at Narcoossees).

Everyone having a blast. Son's favorite ride is Splash Mountain and everything else that gets you soaked. Daughter loves all the rides. Both want more time in the hotel pool which is close to 100 degrees itself. Seriously, who wants to swim in a bathtub?

Went to UNiversal and WWofHP. 45 minutes to get in WW adn 1 hour plus for Forbidden Journey. It was great, but what a long wait. Rest of WW just too damn crowded. Bought some Butterbeer, pumpkin juice and wands. Really funny, Ollivanders is so crowded that they are selling wands at a streek kiosk. Unfortunately, the display wands are melting and getting rather limp (flaccid?) in the heat. You pick one up, it kind of bends like a limp noodle. When you buy a wand, they give a nice stiff one in its own box (I said I was drinking). It was just too funny to see.

Anyway, Chef MIckey's for breakfast and Blizzard Beach tomorrow.
