It's from the movie "Legally Blonde". Basically, the smart and pretty college co-ed coached the shy manicurist at the beauty salon on how to get the attention of the UPS delivery guy who the manicurist had a crush on. My description doesn't do the movie clip justice, I'm afraid.

Another great DISmeet! I loved the GFC when we ate there 2 years ago, definitely can't wait to go back. Sounds like the perfect evening.

I love the cruise pictures bend and snap, oh my goodness!

Yes, clearly! I felt really blessed to dine with these great people!

Sad to say we have a bigger collection of the cheesy poses rather than the silly ones which are way more fun.

As for where we are staying in just30 days? We are staying at the WL CL. This is my favorite resort so far, but then again I have only stayed at the YC CL and WL CL. I originally was going to stay at the CSR and after a couple of months I changed our plans and booked the WL. Since WDW is going to be all decked out in Christmas décor, I just had to stay a the WL.
I'm such a goof! Your signature has your countdown/ticker right there with your resort. Doh! (Thank you for being too kind to point that out! ) But the exciting part is that you will be there in 30 days!!

I see KathyZ has weighed in and has a link to the movie scene. Here's a visual preview!


You were picturing all manner of sinister things right?

Monday August 19, 2013: Day 4, Part 4



This will be a photo heavy update...Sometimes less said is better.

Following our Dismeet dinner, Mr. DDW, Em and I decided to head to DHS for a couple hours for EMH. Taking the walkway from YC allowed us to enjoy a late night stroll or more specifically, allowed me to take a few photos along the way. Poor Mr. DDW was so polite and paused whenever I stopped to take a photo. Em kept walking and called back, “just keep walking, she always does this. She’ll catch up.” Exactly! Just keep swimming…



I'm already falling behind



The Monster U topiary, still there, but this time with spotlights.

Once inside the park we posed for a few photos…


And here's an example of a Photopass photo that was worse than my amateur skills. Come on Disney, I pay you for these!

Let's try this again and see how it turned out...

You're not required to pay attention to these things right?

More photos walking down Sunset Blvd. And when they say "everything for the film fan" does that include a free box of ??


Any guesses where we're headed?

Wow, that one was hard! Yes, my favorite ride, ToT, had a short wait. While we were in the hotel library for the pre-show Em spied with her own little eyes a gadget from one of the original Twilight Zone episodes. In particular, the one with William Shatner and the “mystic seer” fortune telling machine. Assuming a replica of the “mystic seer” machine is on a ledge in the room. I took a photo but it’s not very clear since I was in a hurry to exit the room. Interesting nonetheless.






Here’s our ride photo:

Here's the cropped monitor version:

RnRC had a long stand-by wait so we hopped in the single rider line that took about 20 minutes.




Yeah, the 101 Freeway in downtown LA is always jammed so this ride is completely unrealistic. Shatters all of my illusions.


Here’s our ride photos:



I think they were ready to send me packing on the next bus about this time... so many pauses for photos. We could be riding the rides!!




Continued Next Post

Wow, thanks for the great photos. The walkway from Boardwalk to HS is so nice at night. Is there any ride better themed than ToT. I don't think so.

Oooh - what a fun night! I loved all of the photos!

There is just something so special about the parks at night, it is my favorite time to be there!

A little unrelated - One thing I didn't realize before someone mentioned it recently (I think it was Nini)... During our March 2012 trip, we did two evenings in AK - when it was dark. It never occured to me at the time, but how RARE is it to be in AK in the dark? It's quite rare that their hours are late enough and it gets dark early enough. There was no way to see it in the dark on our Aug trip... The other parks - it's fairly easy to do... But I thought it was an interesting tid-bit.

I just love being in the parks at night - the atmosphere is so awesome and all of the lights make it feel like Christmas.

How awesome that you were able to ride ToT at night (did it once, no thank you for twice)...

D~

The beach club looks so pretty at night. Can't blame you for pausing to take pics.

I think I may have to put riding on the Tot at night on my disney bucket list. It looks so cool at night.

The Mystic Seer machine could possibly be the original from the show. Mr. Drewsky informed me the imagineers were able to put quite a few original props from the show in the library.

Even though the PP pictures are a little shoddy ...you're pictures are great! That first photo is particularly beautiful, I think!

I love all your studios pictures! It;s my favorite night time park, it's just so stunning!

Kudos to Em for looking at the items in the library (I've spotted that item many times, he's actually in both libraries). My fiance and dad always laugh at me because I don't watch the pre-show anymore. I'm too busy looking at all the neat stuff in there. We once spotted some books written in the alien language used in To Serve Man. And I spotted the most beautiful antique vase up above that had ornate beading on it.

loved all the night photos! Where was that Monsters U topiary at along your walk? I've had some PP from HS turn out that way at night, maybe it's the lighting? I think I've also had a few duds during the day as well. Maybe it's the photographers! Your pictures are always great.

Brenda, what a fun evening at the Studios with Mr. DDW. Don't worry...Mark is ALWAYS behind me.

I love the photos on the TOT and Rock & Roll. We must do some rides together the next time we are there at the same time.

I love your pink skirt Brenda! How fun to sneak into DHS for awhile. Tower of Terror would have to be my first ride as well. Good choice!
