I read through everyone's great comments and I promise to respond to everyone individually, tomorrow! It's already 11pm and we just got home from Dorney. Talk about "walk - on". It was walk - on everything. I just really wish I could do hard-core thrill rides, like those coasters that send up spiraling upward and then flying backwards up another 90 degree tower only to leave you hanging there looking straight down. You know - those really crazy ones. But we did ride the tamer coasters numerous times - Talon, Steel Force, and the new one - Hydra (which was down most of the day).

The Hydra is a B&M coaster (the same company that made the Incredible Hulk coaster in IoA). It was very smooth and very fun. I did work up the nerve for the front seat on Talon and that was amazing. I kept thinking we were really going to hit our heads on the track. What a rush! Unfortunately, after several rides on those looping coasters, I started to get one of the "coaster headaches". You know - that funny pressure in your head which is probably a warning that you've knocked your brains against your cranium a few too many times. But I managed to ride Steele Force 5 times, Talon 4 times, and Hydra twice.

We stayed until dark so we could visit a couple of the Halloween Haunt attractions. Well, I think I screamed more at the spooky looking people jumping out of the fog, then I did on the cranium busting coasters. I hated to leave, but we had a long drive home, made longer by an accident that closed all the lanes on I95. The one attraction was just down-right gory, but so much fun. We had a blast. I wish they would have their picnic there again next year.

Anyway - gotta go sleep. Comments and an update will be coming tomorrow!
Sounds like a fun day, I know nothing about that park but it sounds like they have some good coasters! Although I have to say....I don't think of the Hulk as being tame! I like it but I don't think it's tame. Does that make me lame?

UGH on the coaster headache!

We do have a curfew, it is 1am. Somehow he managed to "miss" the freeway coming back from a friends and ended up over by his mom's. On a night his mom and sister were away at a game. It is impossible to miss the freeway from where he was to get to his mom's. He'd have had to drive over, or under it. But at 5 minutes to 1 DH didn't want him on the road so let him stay over there. He's not been allowed to drive any of our cars since then, we will see what happens this weekend but he's cut off at night for now. No evidence of anything else but....

Gone bad is a stretch. Good, actually normally exceptionally good, teens doing stupid teen stuff like saying they are sleeping over at a friends, actually going to a party and getting severe alcohol poisoning. AP/Honors, academic scholarship candidate kinds of teens doing this. Ones that have no history of drinking and such and run the risk of getting kicked off of cheer if caught. And hopefully having the scare of their lives and never doing anything like it again but still! Talk about putting everything at risk!

Did you wrap the wine to keep it from breaking? Or did you check it with ice in it?

When the waiter asked how everything was, and Denny told him about the bones, he just sort-of did this ......
It seems crazy to me that a Signature restaurant would not know how to do that tableside. I mean if "I" can do it....

It was a great day! I don't think the Hulk is lame either. This was like the hulk (smooth), but not as long, not as high, and no blast off through the tunnel. I consider it a regular theme park coaster, not one of those really crazy ones that even your kids say, "Wow, that was intense". Dorney park is sort of like a 6 flags, but its owned by Cedar Faire parks. I'm not sure what else they own, but their annual pass for ALL their parks is $150. That could be a serious good deal for thrill ride junkies.

I had to read this a few times, but NOW I get it. Slick! Nice try! I don't blame you at all for not letting him drive. Why do teens think adults are so lame that they don't know what's really going on. Remind me to tell you about the time in July when Brian "stole" my car while I was sleeping.

By the way, 1am seems like a really late curfew to me.

I used some big plastic packing bubbles that were inside of box that was shipped to me recently. I put the wine and water inside a cardboard box and then put the cardboard box inside the cooler. I used the packing bubbles to cushion everything. Worked like a charm. The only stupid thing I did was fill the whole thing with ice after we arrived. Silly me.... I forgot to take the cardboard box out first. That was messy!

I'm glad you explained the whole process to me, because it does seem crazy that they did not filet the fish properly.

Welcome Kindra..... I should have posted the picture of the fish, then taken a poll to find out how many people would have sent that fish back!

Going without the teens was so much fun. We are now planning another teenager free trip for May!

A Magical Evening at the MK (AKA "My aching feet")

A Magical Evening at the MK (AKA "My aching feet")

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OK....you are not going to believe this. this has never happened to me before. I just started working on an update and I LOST it! It vanished! Poof....gone......into thin air. I am so exhausted from my late night at Dorney, that I actually started to fall asleep and I must have closed my update by mistake. OK...that really stinks.

So, I will not get through the entire update, but I really want to start.

So when I left off, we had just left Narcoosees to hop the monorail to MK. Originally I thought we would watch Wishes from the Narcoosee's deck, but I realized that we had just enough to get over to MK before Wishes started. If you read my June 09 TR you might remember that my camera batteries died and I almost got into a fight with a woman right after I went up on the deck outside of the train station to photograph Wishes. It was not one of the highlights of my June trip.


Well, tonight I was going to try again. We got up to the train station just as Wishes started. Let me add a disclaimer to my pics....I have finally decided that it is impossible to get good firework pics with my point and shoot Fuji. I decided not to use any of the special modes, I just put the camera in automatic and here's what I got. It ain't all that.....













OK...they are bad, but by my next trip I hope to have a better camera and I am going to use a tripod. I really had a hard time keeping the camera steady. I'm not super steady to begin with, let alone after having a few drinks!

After Wishes, we decided to do a few things in MK. Despite my sleep deprivation, I was feeling pretty energized. I was so excited to be in the MK and I just wanted to soak up all the energy around me. It was really invigorating.

The castle looked so beautiful....



The halloween decorations were so cool....







Wooh...Where did Denny go?





Wait....I'm not even sure if that is Denny.

Oh, there's that crazy castle again.....










I have always wanted to visit the MK during Halloween and I certainly wasn't disappointed. I especially love the little array of carved pumpkins lined up above the exit which read, "See you real soon". How cute is that?

After we took in the hubbub of Main Street we made a sharp right and headed over to Tomorrowland. I needed to see the new lighting along the TTA. The TTA is one of my favs. It's always there when you need a break. It never disappoints.



Wow...look at those lights......cool!





More Tomorrowland......







I was hoping that our ride on TTA might provide some glimpse into the Space Mountain renovations, but that was not to be the case. This is about all I saw,,,,






These guys obviously wanted to see some renovations as well.....



Oh Lo


ok....this is revealing:



Another ride pic...



Well, I didn't get as far as I wanted, but maybe I'll get a chance to update again tomorrow night.

All caught up! So, Connor was hugging me good night as I was reading, so I could not resist showing him Denny's fish. His response was, "THAT'S A FISH!" I must say that your surf and turf looks way better!

Sorry about all the teenage angst and the sleepless night!

I about dying laughing at the "I am not even sure that is Denny" pic!

Sounds like a great night in MK so far! I love TTA as well! I love to take a ride with my feet up and feel a little breeze on my face!

You know....I love that last pic of the fireworks and the castle. Very pretty and spooky Halloween at the same time.

I am just so happy that TTA is opened again. I really missed it in May!

I think TTA opened the week before we got there. The cool red lights on the track are a nice enhancement, but I really miss see space mountain. It won't be the same until that is up and running. I miss the day-glo lights, twinkling stars, and the screams. Most of all I miss the space mtn music. I hope they don't change that!

The castle does look especially cool at Halloween. I think I like the Halloween decorations better than the Christmas decorations. So glad I got to see them.

OMG! That picture was SOOOOOOOO perfect. Denny got a good chuckle out of that and I was down-right hysterical.

We did have a lovely evening in the MK. I tried to put it in my update, but, again, I ended up deleting things. Will carry on with it today/tonight!

Thanks for the compliment, coming from the expert photographer LL! I just really struggle with those fireworks. But come May, I'm gonna kill it down there with a new camera!

Yes, you will get to ride TTA to your heart's content in January. And Space Mtn will be up!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't WAIT for that come May!

I will never post an update again when I keep falling asleep. That is just a recipe for disaster. Fortunately I am much more awake today, so tonight's update better go smoother.

Ok! All caught up!!! So far so good! Good job on the car upgrade and glad to see you made it around alive with the shaking wheel! LOL
It sounds like you had a nice dinner with just the two of you at Narcoossees! Ahhhhh...what that must be like...a dinner without kids! Some day!!! But, the fish...eh, not sure if I could have stayed to look at that for the whole dinner! It was a bit scary! Actually it was so big and alive-looking that it was like you had a dinner for three! LOL
The fireworks pix look good! Just had to get a little taste of the MK in, right? Tired or not! I get that! We don't land until 10 pm in December...I wish I could get to a park, any park. But, it will be too late!

Oh my!

I couldn't agree more about the curfew. It's one of those situations where I bite my tounge as that is between Jeff and his ex to decide what they are ok with and that's what the law is. That said the E's will NOT be allowed out that late when they are that age! It's 1am on Friday and Sat...I forget what on weeknights...maybe midnight? He can't have anyone in the car with him that is under 21 unless they are family for the 1st 6 months.

I forgot to take the cardboard box out first. That was messy!
Ok now it makes sense, the cardboard would stablize it perfectly, that was the part I couldn't figure out! How funny about the box, I would totally do that. In fact, I have although usually it's a beer 6 pack paper holder lol.

It does make me curious as to whether I could still do it

OK....you are not going to believe this. this has never happened to me before. I just started working on an update and I LOST it! It vanished! Poof....gone......into thin air. I am so exhausted from my late night at Dorney, that I actually started to fall asleep and I must have closed my update by mistake. OK...that really stinks.
I hate that! so frustrating. I've started doing mine in a word doc that I save until I go to post, it's been working much better. Of course it means I go on and on and on...

If you read my June 09 TR you might remember that my camera batteries died and I almost got into a fight with a woman right after I went up on the deck outside of the train station to photograph Wishes. It was not one of the highlights of my June trip.
I totally forgot about that, yikes!

Wooh...Where did Denny go?




Wait....I'm not even sure if that is Denny.

Oh, there's that crazy castle again.....

Love the pumpkins and you've got some nice castle shots. I agree with you about point and shoot and fireworks...sad, but true.
