Ok, I just went on Nemo last week and that fish scared me! I never remembered it before, so I'm wondering if it wasn't working the few other times I rode it. It is definitely working now tho! I love the queue in there as well!
When I watched your favorite guy before Soarin' last week, it made me think of you guys!

Great, Figment's here. Now we just need to wait for Dreamfinder to come back and get rid of the terrible Imagination Institute and the equally awful Dr. Channing.

Haha I'm glad it's up and working again! It adds a little bit of a thrill even though it scares the living daylights out of me.
Aww that's awesome!

Jess, I didn't say I didn't like Figment. I do like him! It's just that I hate the ride. The original one with Figment and Dreamfinder was better than this Imagination Institute stuff.

Sorry I've been totally absent from this TR for a while!!

Amazing update! Love love love reading about Epcot! Such an amazing place!

I'm one of those muppets that never realised you didn't have to return between the times on the fast pass so it made no real impact on my strategy! But I could imagine it was amazing to be able to collect lots!

Figment!! Love him so much! He is such a big memory of my childhood! They can never take him away!!!

YESSS A FRUMPDATE!!!!

Oh my God, how did you resist that Chocolate Raspberry Cupcake at Sunshine Seasons?! They look so good! I'll have to put that on my list. Yet another thing I have to eat. hahahaha.

That sea turtle is amazing! I've been in there 2939983 times and never saw him, I wonder if he is a new addition. I hope he's there when I go visit Our Frogfish Friend Paul in a few weeks! AHH!

Lmao. You guys WOULD find a stuffed animal that matches Kristen's nail. Like, that's just too perfectly hilarious.

Soarin is fine, but it features no trolls. Maelstrom does. Maelstrom, 1. Soarin, 0.

How cute that they hand out roses on Mother's Day. That's pretty awesome.

The new fastpass window messes with a lot of peoples strategy. I normally always return in my window, but dangit I want the option not to!

*drool* Sunshine Seasons strawberry shortcake. So so yummy. Totally okay for breakfast food btw.

Oooh, croissant berry pudding? I'm going to have to remember that.

Scary light bulb fish hasn't worked for me the last few times either. I was totally prepared to have my niece have a freak out moment, and I was all ready for it, had my hands ready to shoot around her to hang on for dear life lest she jump out of the clammobile....and nothing.

That looks like the real life Crush that ate with us at Coral Reef. Literally parked himself in the aquarium right next to our table.

That's so sweet that they give out carnations to the moms!

UGH, I know what you mean about the new FastPass rule. My trip in May was the first trip with the new rule in place and it totally messed up my thinking at first, but I got used to it eventually.

I need to remember to get breakfast at Sunshine Seasons sometime. It looks amazing and it's one of my favorite places for lunch, so I'm sure the breakfast tastes as good as it looks.

I have that Muppets shirt that's on the right! I think it's *technically* a guy's shirt, but it was so adorable (and comfy!) I just had to have it.

Oh man, the chocolate raspberry cupcakes look so good! I don't even like raspberries but I want one.

OMG, I came so close to getting the Epcot center shirt in August and then I DIDN'T. Rookie mistake.

Ahhhh the flower and frump festival is the most beautiful thing!!!!

I love Figment!

DS and I went to see Finding Nemo today- that glow fish scared him in the theater- he probably will pee himself on the ride. LOL

I am OBSESSED with the Nemo queue. The music, the details...it's all so relaxing.

I love that queue too. I have the music loop on my iPod. It's awesome music to listen to when I nap. So ambient.

I've really grown to like the queue at Nemo. The music is just relaxing and precious, and I really like the progression from the beach to underwater. As far as the scary fish scene is concerned, maybe he will be broken for good? I know he was broken when I went in March and I was so relieved too because it's just creepy. Like, my sister Shannon and I were bracing ourselves because we hate that part. Although it was still just the tiniest bit scary because even though he wasn't working, I remember that it was dark and he was just sitting there staring at you.

Also, I have that Epcot shirt and I love it! I made sure to wear it yesterday for Epcot's 30th anniversary!

That just melts my heart that they were giving out roses to the mom's on Mother's Day. I would have been overwhelmed with joy!

That croissant berry pudding looks so delish. Disney is just so smart when it comes to food!

Ahhh I love Figment. I really don't get why people don't! Always makes me smile when my son plays with his Figment plush!

Also, I very much hate the enforcement of fp windows too. Talk about cramping our style! I have yet to experience Disney in this new strict manner but that is the one part that I am NOT looking forward to. I feel like everyone should write to Disney and complain lol. CHANGE IT BACK!

YAY! All caught up! Sorry I haven't commented on this in awhile. Life got a bit out-of-hand for awhile there, but NOW I have time so I can comment. Looks like this trip definitely seemed to get better! I'm so excited to hear about more.
