After dinner we had some time to fill before the World of Color show, so we headed to the Little Mermaid ride.....the line was very deceiving......it wound down at the far end of the building....but oh well....we stayed in line & rode it anyways.
























When we got off the ride, we headed down towards Goofy's Sky School. Ty rode it single rider as I called home to talk with Mike & the kids.



Ty took this on the ride:



Our next ride was Screamin'.




I had never rode it at night, so thought that would be fun. We did the standby line...it was listed as 20 mins (I think) but it was longer than that. Of course, the longer I wait in that line...the more anxiety I get. We finally make it, load up & THE MUSIC ISN'T WORKING!!! I don't if you remember that last year, Mike & I rode it twice & the music didn't work either time but......it FREAKS me OUT!!!! I can hear every clickety clack!!! So when the music didn't go......I just wanted off. Ty said that it had worked on all his other rides.....so I'm thinking it's just me!! I survived....but decided I needed to do something tamer, so we headed to BugsLand!!









We rode Heimlich & the Ladybug Spin ride.

We noticed the time & decided it was time to head back to the pier area for the big show!!

My camera didn't come out when I was on the ride. I was too enthralled with it. Scotty was too. This trip he finally got it! The Disney bug bit him!! He couldn't get my love of the place. He just didn't understand it, and this trip he fell hard. The APs were his idea. He looks at the pictures in the trip reports with me now. It is so thrilling to see his excitement. I knew he didn't really get it before, so when he did this trip it was great to watch.

That's awesome!! It's so fun when you're experiencing it with someone else that loves it as much as you do!! Also, going as a couple brings a new appreciation to the park. Now that I've gone solo, as a couple & with family.......I can say that all 3 ways are different....all good, but different.

That's the 3rd time I've done the Ariel's dinner & I love it!! I've had something different each time......never been disappointed.

We enjoyed doing some rides while waiting for the show......BugsLand is fun at night (kinda dark back there)......I hadn't really noticed the lights/lamps before so that was neat!!

So we headed over the Paradise park to go find a spot to watch the show......the area had already been opened & we just figured we would hang back & watch from further back & avoid the crowds. It was a great plan until we figured out that they have cut drastically the dining viewing area. We used to have the entire center section.....so lots of elbow room & you could stay back & see without looking over people's heads.

Here's our FastPasses for the show.



We go down towards our section & of course everyone is packed in against the railing.....so we found an area where we could stand in the back & on a corner (I was feeling a bit of anxiety due to the crowds). I felt pretty good about our spot. Figured we'd be able to see good. Here are a few pics Ty & I took prior to the show starting.












So we're getting ready for the show & this family comes in on the other side of the walkway (basically about 4') & put their kids up on their shoulders with the light up Mickey ears.......awesome....right in my line of sight. So my camera kept trying to focus on the lighted ears vs the show.......heavy sigh.












More to come!!

Finishing up the World of Color show.






























After the show, we tried to stay back to avoid the huge masses of people being corralled towards the exits. We went through the Grand Californian's exit & walked & shopped a little in the World of Disney store. We headed back to the motel, as Michelle (zoemakes5) had just arrived. Michelle was staying with us for 2 nights. We got back & helped her bring her stuff up to our room. We decided to head back to the parks. Michelle was needing some dinner, so we went to the Jolly Holiday Bakery. As we were getting into line, Trudi, Sarah & Rochelle was also getting in line.....so we were able to chit chat while we waited. Tyler decided to head off & get in a couple rides. He did Star Tours & Astro Orbiter.

The ladies sat together as we all enjoyed a treat of some sorts. I was tired & so Michelle & I decided to head back to the motel. We did stop at City Hall for Michelle to get a GAC before leaving the park.

This ends Day Two!!!

I wish those light up things were turned off during shows.....they really can be distracting.

Nice update and I TOTALLY agree not only about the ears but just putting kids on your shoulders. I had that same problem our first time back in 10 and so when we went last summer we made SURE to get up close. We had to wait a lot longer but it was SO worth it. We were right up next to the railing and could see everything with NO blocking. I personally feel if you have kids you should either come early enough to get up close or if you are going to put them on your shoulders do NOT block others behind you. I have had that happen at the fireworks too.

I don't know why people think that they are any better or more deserving than anyone else. ESP when you pay so much for the dinning you expect to be able to see!

Excited for the next installment.
