Don't forget that sounds great, are you waiting for your CD?
Well... Um.... I'll let you know later.
My DD really thought we had gone into space
That's cute!
Didn't see anything like that to do although I was trying to get DH away from all the Star Wars stuff
hahaha. Well, I'll see what I can dig up!

Not even a Stitch to reply. "HELLO!!" I said again. Still nothing. I slam down the receiver in anger as the wake-up call has won once again.
Ladle laughs.

We get dressed and head down to breakfast. Now, it is 6:45 a.m. and the hot food section does not open until 7:00a.m. But what do we see?! Across the horizon- SCRAMBLED EGGS! Yes, it seems that we have found the loophole. I had cereal and banana again, but it was nice to know that I had the option.

We finish with breakfast, drop off our POP mugs and head to the bus. It was MGM early entry this morning and Sally had stars in her eyes for today she would ride... The Tower of Terror. I don't recall waiting a long time to get on a bus. I'm going to guess the two bus wait again, just because that seemed to be our standard bus wait in the morning. We arrived at MGM a tad after rope drop, but we weren't worried. I saw this sign that I don't think I've ever seen before. It's right as you walk in on one of the buildings. Hilarious!


Maybe I'm to blame, as I first convinced Sally to get on the Tower of Terror some years ago. Or maybe it's just the adrenaline rush that comes from riding it. Whatever it is, Sally Shine is obsessed with the Tower of Terror. I'd like to insert here a quick aside as to why we decided to call her Sally Shine in this trip report. Watch this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQKdbBYLZY4

If you noticed the people who went down in the elevator, you would have noticed a little girl. That is Sally Shine. I'm not saying my mom is a little girl, but what I am saying is that when it comes to the ToT, my mom has found her version of The Fountain of Youth. She comes off that ride all adrenalined and hyper, and wants nothing more than to ride it again.

Ladle and I can only take about one ride on ToT. For some reason, the anxiety at the top in those few seconds of waiting to drop really, really gets to me. Of course, Garco does not ride this one. He won't even set foot near it in fear that we might drag him on. We'd never do that, of course... Anyway, this morning, Ladle and I decided we'd go on ToT with Sally first thing just to get it over with. While we did that, Garco was kind enough to get us Fast Passes to Rock 'n' Rollercoaster! He also got on lone Fast Pass to ToT for Sally.

Well, the three of us lived after riding ToT. It wasn't quite time for R'n'R yet, so Sally had another idea. She's been begging Garco to go through the hotel and watch the pre-show in ToT and then take the Chicken Exit. He never would go because he was always worried that we'd drag him on the ride itself. Well, this time, he decided he'd go because Ladle and I didn't want to ride it again, so all three of us would get off and let Sally ride. Well, truth is, he actually really liked the old hotel and the pre-show and everything so it wasn't a total waste. We took the Chicken Elevator down and waited for Sally to get off the ride.

And we were off to R'n'R.

With our FPs, we seriously just walked right up to the door and inside. We had a little bit of a wait once we got in the alley, but no more than 10 minutes. It was great! Do you remember how they used to play a different Aerosmith song in each car? Well, I don't think they do that anymore. We had a mix of songs ending with "Love in a Rollercoaster" being a spinoff of "Love in an Elevator." Well, whatever the music was, it was a great ride. It's definitely one of our favorites!

After we got off this ride, it was time for Sally's FP to ToT. She was hesitant at first to go through by herself but we convinced her. She was happy to go a third time. Ladle and I went over to R'n'R to get another round of FPs for later. While we were over there, we thought we'd take some pictures with the Photopass Photographer. The photographer was very odd. She told Ladle to put her hands up and point at the Mickey ears that would be on her head. She told me to look shocked and appalled that Ladle had Mickey ears. Very strange, but we thought it was a good idea. How did those pictures turn out, you ask? Well, I'm going to save that for later.

After Sally got off her solo ToT ride, it was only another 10 minutes before our FPs to R'n'R. How these worked out so well, I have no idea. Just good timing I guess. We waited a few minutes and headed over to ride again. We, again, walked right up to the door and waited only a few minutes in the alley. It was great! But again, we had the mix of Aerosmith songs ending with "Love in a Rollercoaster." We sat somewhere completely different too. That makes me think that the days of having a different song in ever car are over.

Garco had already headed over to our favorite attraction ever so we went to meet him there. What's our favorite attraction ever? Sounds Dangerous!

JUST KIDDING! Man, I had you going there for a minute, didn't I? Does anyone else think that's like the worst attraction!?

Anyway, we met Garco at Star Tours which had pretty much no line. We asked to sit in the back, of course, for a better ride. We rode with a bunch of newbies so it was kind of fun to hear and see their reactions. Great ride! Usually after riding Star Tours, we take pictures where they put you in a Star Wars scene, but we have so many of those that we decided to bypass. I can, however, scan some in if you guys are curious.

After Star Tours, we went to Muppetvision 3D. I'm not even joking here, we walked in and the doors to the theater opened. There were very few peopel there so we were allowed to sit where ever we wanted. Now that is quite a thrill! We got to pick a row, walk down the seats, and stop in the middle! Yes, I said in the middle of the row! Anyway, it's a cute show, and a must-do for us at least once on our trips.

We took this picture right outside the Muppetvision 3D:

We thought it might look like we were leaning against the gazebo... but... We just look silly. Oh well. Do you guys know which one I am??

It was about time for lunch, so we walked over to...

Up Next... Lunch and Garco.


Really enjoying your trip report PB!!!

BTW....My guess is that you are on the right??

I know! Isn't she?? She loves it! She would ride that all day- no joke! You should go look at the hotel and see the preshow. It's really interesting.

Yes, everybody has those days, even multiple days sometimes. Don't let it get you down too much. Remember your crazy DIS friends can most likely bring a smile to your face!

Sci-Fi

...Sci-Fi! Now, I'm not going to lie here, the food is not the best food I've ever had, but I absolutely love eating at Sci-Fi! I love the atmosphere and I love those terrible old B movies! Ladle and I especially love The Blob song. We wait to hear that one and we definitely sing along.

Now, if you've ever eaten at Sci-Fi, and paid attention to the movies on the screen, you may have seen Walt Disney's "Robot of the Future." And this robot has a name... and that name is Garco:

Where the heck do I dig these pictures up? Sharky and Parla know... GOOOOOOOOOOGLE!

Anyway, I guess I never really noticed his name before, but that name is absolutely hilarious! Well, after we saw the whole clip about Garco being the robot of the future and such, we kind of laughed about the name and moved on. Later in the collage of movies was this segment where a song was playing and all the different characters of the movies were "singing" along.... including Garco. I saw Garco on the screen moving his mouth to the words of the song and I said, "Garco!" Ladle looked at me and was like, "Well, shout it out why don't you." I guess I have a problem controlling the volume of my voice because I thought I only said it in a normal voice... guess not...

That's where my dad gets his nickname. No real ties to Garco, we just really think that name is funny.

Well, Ladle and I each had a garden salad and then we split spinach artichoke dip. Both were very, very tasty. Great choices! Oh, and to drink we had Pirate's Punch! It was just raspberry lemonade, BUT it came in a collectible cup and you had the choice of either a light-up Tinker Bell or light-up Captain Hook clip thing. It was very exciting! I'm sure it's for kids, but.... Oh well!

Up next... Some Imagination, huh?

DH really wants to eat at Sci-Fi but we both think that the kids would freak about the B movies. We don't let them watch a lot of things. DH has DS watching the old Star Wars movies right now to get him prepared for Star Wars Weekend but he is pretty squeamish about some of the scenes. Plus they always fight about who sits next to who and would probably throw a fit since they couldn't even face each other. I'm thinking if we go again in a few years they will probably be old enough to just sit together in the front part of the car and leave us alone.
