Awesome start! What great room mojo to have it ready at 10:30 am. I'm glad to hear nice things about Pop. I'm staying there for the first time in January. Also glad to hear that you were able to ride Toy Story Mania w/o getting there for rope drop and dashing for fast passes. I'd love to check it out but for me early mornings and vacation just don't mix!

Looking forward to more!!

Don't you just love DHS? I really enjoy so many things at that park. Too bad your score was not posted on TSM. I think I enjoyed waiting in line as much as the ride. The theming is amazing.
I love the excitement of checking in, I would have been walking with Erica too. This is going to be so much fun reading a joint report. We are all in for an early Halloween treat!

Joining In

I'm joining in for the ride. I lurked on your last TR Punkin413, and really enjoyed it. I'm sure this one will be just as fun! Also, a great way to get excited for my upcoming trip... We leave on 9/20, so please update soon!

OH, how I look forward to your next update. I can't wait for pics of block party bash. I LOVED that "parade" I am also anxiously awaiting to hear what happened after RnR

Thanks so much for sharing all the fun with those of us who have NO trip to plan at the moment

Too funny about the flying squirrel! My DH speed walks too whenever we go some place. He's WAY in front, while the rest of our family is WAY behind. It's a good thing he's kinda tall and wears a hat so we can recognize him. Erica was just excited to get the vacation started!

I thought you meant the squirrel was in that lady's head at first! Thanks for sharing the fun - loved the balloon pic!

Wow, your pictures are so cool ! Love the Pop, and the Studios and we will be there in just over 2 months ! I plan to sit and watch the Streetmasphere people a lot when we go, it's one of the things we never do enough of so thanks for reminding me how funny they are!

Can't wait to read more, but...what happened after that picture was taken in front of Rock n' Roll? I'm dying to know !

Good food pictures - we buy many bowls of grapes when we are there.

That was cute of Erica power walking into Pop! It's a great feeling to be right at the start of the trip.

We really enjoyed some really funny Streetmosphere entertainers this summer.

I am looking forward to many more pictures. Have a good Friday!

I'm sorry I can't seem to answer to EVERYONE separately!! I think it would take up a whole page of it's own

But to all thanks for the complements

to all of those who are new joining us, and you lurkers....come on OUT!!!

YES I LOVED the new Toy Story ride. I am SO excited (and jealous ) for all of you that said you have trips planned soon. It is a wonderful ride and DO NOT MISS IT!!!!

Like I said before in my update I'm going to upload more museum pics b/c that really was a cool place

Don't have to ask me twice. Now I do walk fast you can ask her I told her at the beginning of the trip I was a speed walker and if she needed me to slow up let her know b/c I have a tendency to get walking and just GO

erica didn't include some gorgeous pics she took of the fantasia topiaries in front of Hollywood brown derby. i love these pictures!
Thanks This is actually my fave

this lady came by with her "pet squirrel." it was sooooooo funny -
Yes I did come up at the end of her 'show' but she was hilarious. Their voices they can do are just amazing. But she was moving on to entertain someone else with her pet squirrel

Quote:
oh, and you know those streetmosphere people that erica posted a picture of? well, we were sitting there in the beaming sun and i had a wet paper towel draped over my brown mary jane crocs because they were HOT from sitting in the sun. so those people come walking up and say, "um.....excuse us, ma'am, but here at disney's hollywood studios, we allow you to show your feet!!!" it was pretty funny!
This was really funny.

When I went to the bathroom I had gotten wet paper towels which BTW is one of the BEST things you can have in the heat!! I do this at Vandy/Titans games all the time! But Dawn was covering her feet b/c the crocs get so hot in the sun. That guy spotted her and was a bee-line straight to us. They told her she could show her feet that it was the '40's now and 'women' were allowed to do that. She explained they were hot and thats why it was there and the guy said 'Oh....so you just cover them with something else?!?' It was really funny but as you can see by their faces they were great characters!!

As SOON as I brought out the camera....we got this....


Back for more soon
