Oh my goodness, it has been a while since you've been to Hollywood Studios (still MGM to us). There's a lot of new stuf there that you're sure to enjoy.

Tell you son to put that tooth under a pillow for the tooth fairy. I didn't get a thing for my tooth. Yes I did! A lot of laughs.

Also maybe add a picture of you and DS so people can get a feel for who theyr are reading about right away. Of course these are suggestions, but I actually pass up most TR's if they don't start out with that kind of stuff.

Ok, no more hyjacking of the thread...I promise!
I agreed with Jen. I like to put a person's face to their name. It just helps me get into the trip report more.

Jen, I don't think you hijacked my thread. I reckon what you did was just fine!

Great update! Your pictures of the Indiana Jones show are AMAZING!! Very, very nice!

Did the CM who tried to tell you that you were going the wrong way not know you were a DISer!! Not only do we know WHERE we are going, we've planned out HOW to get there in the most efficient way, where we are going NEXT, and how long we should have to wait once we DO get there! She did NOT know who she was messin' with!

I LOVE a good ghost story..although I have to admit I'd be a little creeped out. Whenever we watch those types of shows, I make Jeff leave the lights on when we head to bed and walk me to the bathroom if I need to go! LOL!

After having the tooth fall out two times before we ever left for vacation, I knew I had to have a backup plan just in case. Thank goodness I did! Super glue to the rescue!!!!!

I was upset that my pictures of Illuminations didn't turn out any better. This was the first time that I had used my camera at night and I was still tinkering with the settings.

I thought the Indiana Jones pictures were pretty good too. I had several more but thought I'd bore you guys with too many.

Thanks for the compliment. Like I said above, I took more pictures of the Inidiana Jones show 'cause Hunter was really really into Indiana Jones at the time. I like the action ones.

I swear I was ready to just punch the CM and run off. The lady was doing nothing but delaying me from getting to the first thing on my list of "must sees". Oh I knew where I was going alright and I was on a mission to get there. Seriously though, I appreciate that the CM was just trying to do her job but help somebody else please.

I like to watch the ghost hunter shows and usually don't get too creeped out by them. One of the shows has actually come to our town to investigate a museum (a little one) and a castle (yep we have a castle albiet a semi-small one). So far, the show hasn't made it to the airwaves and I don't know if it will. My sister's friend is the curator there and told my sister that they don't want it getting out that it's haunted because they are afraid it would hurt their business. Our town is not a huge metropolis and every business needs every patron they can get.

Thanks for the praise! I'll take it any way I can get it.

I went by the office before heading to shop today. I found the gift that my boss was looking for. I swear, you guys, when I last saw it, it was my bosses office on one of the bookshelves behind his desk. Hunter and I looked all over the place and I finally went into one of the "junk" offices to look. It was in there! Under the desk pushed way underneath where the office chair slides in. I had to crawl under to get to it. I know neither one of us would have put it way back there.

Yeah! You're hear. I'm glad that I was able to give you a chuckle or two.

My boss forewarned me that United Kingdom food was just so-so. But, it was the only place I could get an ADR for on our anniversary. Oh well....live and learn.

When I left off, we had just seen Indiana Jones and Hunter was shopping for a hat. After much trying on, he found just the right one and was ready to head to Star Tours. I decided that, since I was the designated Fastpass getter, I would go over and get Fastpasses for Rock n' Roller Coaster while John and Hunter rode Star Tours. So, we parted ways for a little while.

I wish I could remember what time the Fastpasses were for but I can't right now. I do remember that it was for pretty late in the day because we rode it before we ate dinner and got in line for Fantasmic. Fastpasses safely tucked away in my wallet, I started back to meet up with my boys. But, not before stopping at a potty. I saw this on the bathroom door lock and thought it was so hilarious. I just had to take a picture. Look closely at what it says......"Hiney Hidders"!.


I called John on the cell phone and they were doing some window shopping in Star Tours. They had also let Hunter try to get picked for Jedi Training again since a session had just started when they got off Star Tours. No luck!

So, we got in line for Star Tours again since the wait was just 5 minutes. I don't know if it's just pure luck but we have never had a wait longer than 10 minutes for this attraction. Here are a few pictures I took while walking through. I had to take them fast because there were a few people coming up behind us.




Next up on our list? Muppet Vision 3D. John loves this attraction. Why? First of all, he loves it when Miss Piggy kicks the rabbit out of her way. Brutal? Yes, but it loves that part. The second reason? Because it's nice and cool in the theater and with those 3D glasses on, you can't see that he's taking a short nap. I told you he could go to sleep anywhere/anytime.



After seeing the Muppets and John taking his late morning snooze, we realized we were hungry and Hunter really wanted a Toy Story Pizza Planet pizza. Well, so did everybody else in the park. When I say there wasn't an empty table, I mean there wasn't an empty table. Hunter stood in line with me while John walked around looking for a place to sit. John called me about 15 minutes later (I still hadn't even ordered yet.) and said he had a table outside. After I finally placed our order, it took no time at all for our food to be ready. Sorry, no pictures of the pizzas and salads.

While we ate, I took our a show schedule and saw that the Lights, Motor, Action Show was going to start in just 20 minutes. We gobbled down the last bit of food and headed right there. When we got to the theater, the castmembers were rushing us through saying if we didn't hurry, we wouldn't get in. Whew! We just made it.
I took tons of pictures. I won't post them all but it's still a lot. Sorry! If you don't want to see them all, scroll down.


























I'll stop here for now. I am about to go to Wal Mart and pick up a few groceries. We are taking John camping this coming weekend for Father's Day and I need to pick up a few things. I just hate stopping after work. When I get off work, I want to just go home. Not stop at Wal Mart.

I'll get another installment up later today

We missed Lights, Motors, Action **as we missed all the shows**. Love that you even noticed the lock, I wouldn't have I run in so fast do the deed and run out...and if I have Ashton with me its down to the last stall and I don't even close the door all the way (if he is in the stroller).

LOL I love the pic of the door lock. I have seen the "Hiney Hiders" before but not at Disney, it's still funny though.
