Great installment!

Awwwww that first pic infront of the hat is gorgeous I'm not so sure about the "knife pic" though...just a little creepy

It's amazing how quickly TSM FP's go and that wait...

Looking forward to reading more

You can't beat a good burger

Didn't see any Brazillian tour parties about at all.

September is a great time of year, we've booked up to go back in September next time too

Looking forward to hearing about HHN
Yep, was gutted to miss TSMM, although we did manage to fit it in on our last day when we went back to MGM

It's amazing how the inner geek in us all comes out when we're around a real life landspeeder

I'll make sure the HHN report covers it all for you - you def have to check it out one day!

The burger looks awesome,Hubby was tempted to go for that but went for the chicken fajitas instead.Hey we never got free nachos .
We used to have a Wendy's near where i used to live(before it turnt into a Mcdonalds )+i agree there burgers are delicious.
Such a shame you missed TSM,it is a fantastic ride-absolutley brilliant,make sure you do it next time .
The girls done the Landspeeder picture,then as i was about to put the camera away but who should get on-Yes my hubby .I managed to quickly get a shot of him before walking away rather quickly+embarrasingly .x.
Hey, if we've paid for the photopass it'd be rude not to get a few cheesy pics done Looking forward to seeing a few of your cheesy pics Michelle

Good to hear there's another Wedny's fan on the board

Is there anyone here who hasn't been involved in an embarassing Landspeeder picture?! At least I'm not the only one......

You made me LOL at the Landspeeder photo's as I have one of my hubby on it....guess it just a man's thing! It goes hand in hand with the hanging out of Jaws' mouth at Universal photo.

I can't believe you didn't get to go on TSM! Never mind you will have to ride it several times next Sept.

Looking forward to reading HHN. I am too much of a scaredy cat to go.
Thanks Claire

It's definitely illegal not to have a pic done in Jaws' mouth!!

You'll be pleased to know that we managed to get round to TSM on our last day - which you'll probably be able to read about around Christmas time

How are your plans coming along? I love your ADR choices.......

Star Tours is my favourite at MGM, I know most of the words in the script!

Those Wendy's burgers look so good, will add both Wendy's and Chilis to my list of places to eat in September.

Laur's xx
I'm scared of heights too but still loved TOT - You should definitely give it a try - if I can I'm sure you'll b able to do it easily

Star Tours is a great ride, it brings back so many memories, in fact its one of my clearest memories I have from my first trip to Florida back in the day

You will not be diappointed with a trip to Wendy's

As always you did a great job of describing not only the rides and attractions but also your feelings and reactions. I have to say on a personal note, that you've opened my eyes to something I've taken for granted--the Wendy's and Chili's I drive by every day. I'm going to be more appreciative now and make a point of stopping now and then and I'll do it in your honor.
Thanks Susan. Yep, this was definitely an action packed day and as you can imagine we were both knackered at the end of it!

As you can tell I'm just a bit of a Wendy's fan! Next time you're there have a strawberry Frosty for me You guys are so lucky to have such a great choice of food available to you all the time, one of the reasons I love it out there so much!

After a busy weekend of wedding planning I'm now off to catch up on your latest adventures with the Stringers

Kev, you should give it a whirl if you're ever out in Orlando in September/October - it's so much fun! Em is a wimp and thought she would be far too scared to go in any of the houses, but ended up absolutely loving it!

Right, I'm off to read the rest of your TR now Mr Stringer

A great report - as always. And I love the 'cheesey' pics - only at Disney could you get away with such things.
Looking forward to the next part.

Finally got round to reading this day's report great pictures. Can't believe you missed TSM really is a must its my joint fave now along with Splash and its one of those you need to get your fastpass for and then jump straight in the standby line to ride at opening. Hope you did manage to get on it later in the trip.
