4/18 trip...aka, my *** trip

(edit: I didn't know those letters weren't allowed)

aka, my "Huhh?" trip

3rd trip with AP

I enjoyed this trip.... despite an unusual amount of irritations:

* crowded day on a Thurs after spring break? "Huhh"? (yet...GRR was NO WAIT 20' after rope drop

* On 2 separate occasions, I saw 2 kids just lay down on the pavement on their backs. "Huhh"? It was early, so they weren't resting.

* A Kid so impatient in line, he was bumping the back of my shoes

* Trolley leaving with no passengers as I was 12' from boarding.

* Woman and 5 y/o go under rope at front of line, but that's OK cause they're 'with' someone in line. BUT, they got a separate vehicle(Ladybug)-(edit. I just noticed the humor there)

* Guy walking 7' behind me. What's annoying about that?
He was holding his cell phone 1' in front of his face, projecting his voice(Just imagine it ). I had to stop and let him pass, as I watched him and thought......"Huhh"?

I have a new theory: that the 5 hours of walking and 5 hrs of standing aren't the most tiring thing about DL; it's the constant chatter noise and trying to avoid running into slow-pokes and the aimless.

* Space Mt down all day and PoC line wasn't moving (edit: just found out about the inspections). Sorin' also closed (coincidence - while walking to it, I thought "I never checked...It COULD be closed" At times I have a 6th sense.

* 1/2 hr till closing, M is 25' wait, Star tours was 8. *** is up with that?

Still had a great time:

Rode 16 rides.

Ariel is a good ride. Don't know why there's negative reviews.

Same with ST. I rode the new tour for the 3rd time and it's still
blowing my mind. I salute the creators and marvel at the technology.

I assumed my 1st RSR ride would wait till I researched the best time to
ride(crowd issues), but I saw they had an SR line and was only 20'.
So I said "might as well".......WWWWWWWOOOOOOoooowwwww! That's how you make a ride! I was surprised by...

* the inside part(I assumed it was all outside)
* the acceleration and car 'action'!!!

the contrast between the 3 parts make them all better!!!

Mr Toad: 4' wait as parade's starting

Pinocchio: I've never seen it this empty. No on in line OR on the units. As I walk in, guy behind me asked CM "is the ride working?"
I've grown to like Pin, too bad others don't.
