Gotta love 40% off clearance...what a great way to shop! We got several clearance items...and I love the "Too Bucks" (well, that's what they used to be called)...now, if only they carried Disney character clothing there (other than Hannah Montana!).

Happy 5th of July. Dogs woke me up; darn them. But I am one day closer. Had a migrain from H*** yesterday so we didn't go see any fireworks but Austin got to see them at our capital (Washington DC). How lucky was he. He comes home today and I get to see him tomorrow. Then we leave on Wednesday and I am not even close to being ready.

Well need to go see what I need to do to begin to get ready. Maybe should try to go back to sleep? What the heck I don't have to work so I guess I can sleep when ever I feel like it. Hope everyone stayed safe and had a great Holiday. Lois

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF OUR JULY DIS'ERS AT THE PARK CURRENTLY ARE OKAY?

The monorail crash has me worried! My heart is of course breaking for the CM who passeds family, and I'm sending prayers their way.

But I also heard 8 were injured and my first thought was concern they may include some of our current July Dis'ers!! (not that I want ANYONE to be hurt).

I'm really hoping those who are at the park now will check in ASAP to let us know how they are.

I hadn't heard about this either, yet. I went right to bed when I got home and haven't been on the computer until now.

That's terrible!

This is the info I found

LAKE BUENA VISTA -- News 13 has learned a driver of the Walt Disney World Monorail System was killed when two monorail trains collided early Sunday.

Witnesses who called the News 13 newsroom said the trains collided on the Epcot track at the Transportation and Ticket Center around 2 a.m. Sunday as guests were leaving the park following a Fourth of July fireworks show.

The Reedy Creek Fire Department told News 13 the driver was pronounced dead on the the scene, and another driver was taken to the hospital.

No guests were injured, fire officials said.
There was no immediate word on what caused the wreck, or how many people were aboard the trains when they collided.

According to witnesses, one monorail train slammed into the back of the other.

Crews had to cut the driver who died out of the train.

Sunday’s wreck marks the first fatal accident in the Walt Disney World Monorail System’s nearly 38 years of operation.

Statement from Disney
Mike Griffin, vice president of public affairs at Walt Disney World, issued the following statement Sunday following the wreck:

“Today, we mourn the loss of our fellow cast member. Our hearts go out to his family and those who have lost a friend and coworker. The safety of our guests and cast members is always our top priority. The monorail is out of service and we will continue to work closely with law enforcement to determine what happened and the appropriate next steps.”

Disney officials told News 13 Epcot is scheduled to reopen on time at 9 a.m., but the monorail to the park will remain out of service until further notice

Wow. I have been looking, but didn't see anything about guests. So this was the monorail from Epcot? I didn't realize they had fireworks there on the 4th? Guess it was one of those, doesn't effect me, don't have to internalize it things.... Maybe FlyingPegasus will give us some info later...

I have never heard of anything like it? I wonder if the driver had a heart attack, or went to sleep..... The poor family. I will have to work really hard to keep my girls from hearing about this, Anna Kathryn won't dare get on it next week if she does.

Totally OT, but I thought of you last night as we were watching the fireworks - 1 week from then, we'll be on our Wishes Cruise! I finally used the self timer on the camera to take a picture of us all, I'll try to get it up today.

The Monorail may not be running. I am guessing that it will be down at least serveral weeks will they investigate this accident. I can't wait till our Wishes Cruise. I haven't told the kids really want it to be a surprise! Lois

I haven't said anything yet either! I did tell DH that you, Janet, and the kids had plans to watch Wishes from the Poly beach and we were going to try to meet while we were there.. I thought that might help explain looking for you and being adamant that we go.

No word on it, yet.

I'm really hoping it runs.

It's the reason why we are going to the CR.

I'd also be very upset.
