Nice chapter. I've never been through the Buzz and Woody queue, but it really looks cool. I always thought it was pretty neat how they made Buzz and Woody slightly different sizes, just as it would be if they were toys made by different companies.

good job on your score on TSM!

How old do they have to be before they're willing to do the dirty work for you? I need to get my kids to start pulling their weight.

Doth mine eyes deceive me or is this an actual update?? Well, I guess that's a perk of having been gone off the DIS for months, only one update to catch up on! Thanks Marvie.

Eek, that's a little too crowded for me.

Always have to get some pictures in the TSMM queue!!!





Nice! That lifeguard card is from Old Maid isn't it?

Well, that's to be expected. I hear gross motor skills deteriorate with age...

Quote:
After we exited the ride, the small gift shop right outside caught our interest. Of course, I had to do my tribute to Kathy's hubbie Mark. Jonathan was a little quick with the camera as Andrew tried to join in the fun also.

Aw.

Quote:
Hidden Mickey???
Good work Nancy Drew!

Quote:
I thought these spoons were interesting. Of course, I knew Rosie wood like these too!!!
I still don't understand all this spoon referencing. Is that what Ali uses to keep you in line, a good smack with a spoon??

Quote:
We had never really paid any attention to the Buzz and Woody character meet just across from the entrance to TSMM. Jonathan wasn't interested, but Andrew and I decided to check it out while the line was short. There is a lot to do in the queue and Andrew took the time to try everything out.



The claaaaawwwwwwwww




My little monkey


You're a smelly one, Stinky Pete..............






Love all of these!! Drew is adorable Marv.

Quote:
After Drew had his fill of being overly dramatic, we finally got our turn with Buzz and Woody.


Well, if that isn't the a clear example of the pot calling the kettle black...

Coming up Chapter 15 Back to DHS (continued)
I have no idea where you head next but goodness knows it'll be about six months before you share it here.

Great update! I guess Drew was just still young enough to have fun with the meet & greet. Seems like you were able to share some quality time together in that line.

I guess I must check out that shop on my next visit, I spotted a nice t-shirt behind you when you were trying on that "hat". Even though one cannot call it a hat, it does suit you very well!

How strange that they have eliminated rope drop now at all parks besides the MK (at least that was the latest I heard...) I wonder how it will be to just walk through the gates without any ceremony or so...

Wow - great shots in TSM. You did get lots of great details! Impressive!

And top notch scores too, I might add. I think I need lessons from you!

Okay...I'm back off the floor. But after reading the update, I may end up right back on the floor. All that time for an update, and that's all we get? One attraction, one hat and a character meet and greet?

Seriously, congrats on your highest score ever! But Mark would seriously kick your butt and you would kick mine.

Thanks for the shout out to Mark with the hat (looking good); love the spoon tribute to Rosie.

I have actually never been in there.



I like all the "toys" that Woody was a part of.
I agree. There are some really neat toys there, and every time I look at some of them, it almost seems like I had at least something similar as a child. That Prospector's Dynamite game just seems familiar, but I'm guessing it was the Hot Potato game I had like it.

We had a good time, and yes I remember you holding the sign.......you just reposted it a few days ago!!! Is that dementia kicking in again???

Yes, but they are a lot bigger than I imagined!!!

I'm thinking a call into Ripley's may be in order!!!


How old do they have to be before they're willing to do the dirty work for you? I need to get my kids to start pulling their weight.

It isn't how old they HAVE to be, it is how old they are when you trust them with everyone's park pass..............

Nice work. I'd be thrilled with that score.

I don't usually post a picture of my TSMM scores, so that is a pretty good indicator that I was thrilled too!!!

Sure looks like it to me!

Reminds me of a popcorn Mickey, chewing on a jaw full of popcorn!!!

I'm guessing back to DHS.

Very good guess, but I'm thinking you might have read ahead......

See?
Uh Huh! I knew you read ahead!!!

What do you mean? This is your fault! You disappeared and I didn't want to post without you being able to read it, so I awaited your return! Now stop disappearing so I can get this sucker finished up!!!

Eek, that's a little too crowded for me.

Not as bad as it looked, but I HAVE seen less there

Nice! That lifeguard card is from Old Maid isn't it?

Now who would know that better than you??????

Well, that's to be expected. I hear gross motor skills deteriorate with age...

Apparently so do attempts at humor.......

Aw.

Good work Nancy Drew!

I still don't understand all this spoon referencing. Is that what Ali uses to keep you in line, a good smack with a spoon??

Actually, the spoon thingie is something between Rosie and I!!!

Love all of these!! Drew is adorable Marv.

Thanks Molly!

Well, if that isn't the a clear example of the pot calling the kettle black...

Sorry, but the 25 image limit kept me from putting the rest of the DHS day into one update. Besides, I have a reputation to uphold around here!!!

There might be another one soon........

Yes, but rumor has it that Mark cheats!!!
