that is a VERY hidden Mickey!

I agree with your choice not to say anything to the other parent. He may not have seen it as a big deal (or worse, thought it was funny) and I know if that were me, in your state, it would have just made me more upset. In the big picture, not worth it and the right call.

Teen boys have the sensitivity meter of...a rock.

Then again, adult males at times, aren't all that much better.

This may be one of my favorite HMs. So creative!

I personally think that you handled the situation well.

I hope people come back from their trips reporting if the HM is still there! I definitely had never seen that one before or heard about it on others' trip reports.

Can I just say how very glad I was at that moment to be living in the Digital age? In the olden days (like 2006), my little snapping spree would have used up half a roll of film!

Hmmm, could your last comment have anything to do with your last TR update?


Thanks! I really did struggle with the decision about talking to the boy's dad. If he had seen me in my "state" and asked about it, I would have told him.

I keep revealing a little bit more backstory with each response, but a couple of days before I was at the pool with this dad watching the boys and he was telling me how respectful his son is.

Do you see it?

Since I didn’t want anyone to see me crying, I took this series of pictures of Triceratops Spin, so that my back would be turned to the crowd:

Just after Nate and I took the two pictures together, he and a few friends rode PW. I took pictures of the ride as we waited for them. These are not people from our group.

When the boys had finished on PW, it was time to cross back into Asia.

Next up: Yeti, Yet Again
We always seem to skip this area. Great pics! We might have to check it out next trip, especially since we have a young dinosaur fan. I am certain I would not have noticed that hidden Mickey without someone pointing it out.

Glad that the additional posts helped you see it. I was just amazed by the creativity of this HM.

Love the hidden Mickey!
Yup, it was a perfect storm!!! Exhaustion + disrespect + heat = tears.

Dinoland USA is a must-do for dino lovers!!! The Dinosaur ride may be too intense and loud and bumpy for very little ones, but the Boneyard is a fun playground, there is a trail with dinosaur statues/figures, the colors are bright and over the top (carnivally) and there are some stations there for kids to identify different bones- my son did that one year. Worth a visit!

Yeti, Yet Again!

We were done with Dinoland USA and our Fast Passes for Everest came due around 1:30. By that time, I had gained enough composure to enjoy the ride.

I can't remember how many of our group rode- most, I think.

Not much commentary to share here, but I will post the pictures I took on the ride. I love what you can see off in the distance from the top! Especially the EPCOT area!






































After the ride, everyone was ready to head back to the resort. The sky was dark. Would the rain come? When? How much???


Next up: Downtime and "Dinner"

So glad you were able to at least enjoy Everest. It's one of my favorite rides so I would really be disappointed if I didn't get a chance to ride it.

The view from up there is awesome!!
I think it's one of the reasons DS15 doesn't like it- he's afraid of heights.

Enjoyed the Everest ride photos. I think I'll attempt to take some on this trip though I don't know if my camera is quick enough to catch anything. We'll see!

I'm sorry the boys were so rude. I can't imagine NOT apologizing when confronted. I hope my kids know how to behave better than that....
Love the pics from Everest!!! Awesome!

I am so impressed that you were able to get a photo of the Yeti on the ride!!! I have never been able to do so. That's a great view of the Swish (our name for the Swan/Fish aka Dolphin hotels) from the top of the ride!

It definitely looks like rain.

I love your EE pictures. The fact that it was cloudy out just added to how cool they looked. Almost looks like you were going into a storm.

Do you know that I actually have some EE pictures that I haven't edited yet? I just I better get moving.
