That was a huge update!! Phew! I'm tired from all that walking all over the park. I love your excitement of getting there for the first time. That's exactly me too! Bouncing, and bursting!

I"m not sure I would have waited for 35 mins. for HM, but it is interesting how they moved the queue. Hmm.....


No more, Mr. Morrow; Mr. Tom Morrow?? I'm so sad now. I was looking forward to getting pretty silly listening for it!

Those FiP times were late! Was there an EMH this night?

So, what'd you get at Pinocchio's? No picture of the fruit bowl??

The first trip to the first park always has a special feel to it, and when you look back on it in pictures, you can capture that feeling again. At least, I can.

The stretching room is not my favorite part of Haunted Mansion, for obvious reasons. I'm glad that it's only for a short time, and I'm always happy when the doors open. The stampede is a little much sometimes, so hanging back was probably a good thing to do.

I love a blue Florida sky making a beautiful background for the castle.

It will be interesting to watch all the Fantasyland renovations as these next couple of years go by.

The Splash Mountain area is one of my favorite places in the park. It's so shady, the theme is cute, and I like the gift shop with the roots on the ceiling and the big rockers by the fireplace.

Great update. I'll have to try to find your brick and send you a picture when we are there.

I hear if you hang back and let it get quiet, you can hear the gargoyles snicker or something... Can anyone confirm this?

Woo hoo, you made it to the MK! That's so cool how you always go see your brick. I wish they still had those or that we had gotten one when they did.

Those waits don't look too bad...it could have been a lot worse!

What a great day at MK so far. I can't believe the line for HM! I don't think I've ever waited that long. I'm pretty bummed to hear that they changed stuff on the TTA. I loved all that corny stuff! I can't wait to hear about the changes to Space.

ahhhhhh.....the first day at MK!!!! so exciting for any trip. when we go back with the kiddo, MK will definitely have to be our first park, even if it's only for like an hour. i just want MK to be the first disney park my kid lays his/her eyes on, even if they won't remember it!

Okay, so that totally does look like it says "no dancing", which is probably what you needed that morning, lol!

Great update! I am excited that you got so much done that morning.

But, are you NEVER going to make it to a rope drop ceremony?

oooh - you made it to Disney! yay! Love the feeling you get when you first see the Disney arch and the castle!

Wow - it sure looks crowded though. Was it because of spring break? That line for HM looks so long! I'm so excited to ride TTA again though. It made me sad to see it down when we went the last time.
