Glad you made to DHS early. WHAT NO BO or LACK OF BO Picture????


I am thinking he wasn't there.

I really, really tried to get CM Karen and Walt to make sure he was back for Chelsea.

I am glad everyone was OKay with waiting for RnR while the ride was checked out. I know for some, that would a sign to skip it and let others be the first ride after a malfunction.

Just the thought of hanging upside down gives me the twinges of a headache! Wouldn't that be awful?
NOW I'll be thinking about that the next time we ride!

Ahhhh, TOT one of my very favorites! I so hope you rode it!

So did you book that May trip yet?? Book book book

I haven't even booked it yet. Just airline tickets but will probably call tonight as I can make ADR's on Tuesday Our week is blacked out though for free dining so I will only be making a few ADR's.

I had the same thought of them upside down on RNR when I started reading your update Glad they were waiting to board. I love that ride!!

One good thing about not running to TSM is you avoid the crazy stampede. I love getting on early in the morning but do not care for the crowd.

Glad they weren't stuck on RNR. I love the ride but that might be a little scary.

Wow, I would have been worried too if my family didn't come through when they should have.

I love that you leisurely stroll while they run to the ride first. I think it's a good way to get pictures along the way without feeling rushed.

ToT and RNR are on our to do list in June. None of us have ridden either one. I managed to ride EE for the first time last trip. Not sure if I will be able to ride the other two.

Charles, Chelsea, and Connor were brave. I would not have got on a coaster that was having trouble

You got the cowboy on GMR? I ALWAYS get the gangster.

I hope you're enjoying Thanksgiving break! We have 2 full days and a half day on Wednesday. I hope I can come down off my Disney high and teach tomorrow

Great update!! The warm weather sounds awesome as I'm reading your TR and watching the snow fall outside my window! We leave in 68 days, I hope we get a little of that sunny weather.

Love the picture! I may have lol a little at the look on Charles' face. I would have been scared silly until I knew my family was safe.

Yeah for making rope drop! I skip RNC too. I'm glad your group enjoyed it and didn't get stuck. I'm with Anita, I can just feel the headache if i were ever stuck upside down. I usually walk around and take pictures while the others ride.

Hey! Great update! Loved it! Some nice pics of this and that at DHS. Glad your crew was not stranded on the ride, that would have been frustrating I am sure!! Did you guys end up riding TSM? I am sure that will be part of the next post! Lucky duck that you get this week off!!! Enjoy it!

I will be catching up this week, too. Have to. We are leaving a week from today to head down to Disney and Universal before the training in St. Pete's!

I will be thinking of you as I drag myself through two more days of work!!!!

I found it awfully difficult to smile during that crazy take off! Glad they weren't stuck on it.

I have never been on it, and I don't plan to remedy that EVER.

We did get the cowboy. LOL!

If you think it means a reference to the GMR, then you are correct.

We have had both the cowboy and the gangster on numerous occasions.

The biggest thing we've done is BTMRR. The kids love it now, so I'm sure we'll keep that one going. Maybe as they get older, they'll get braver. I am getting less brave with age. I used to go on all kinds of coasters - before having kids. I think it does something to one's equilibrium or something that I can't tolerate it as well.
I am the only ride wuss in the family anymore, but that's okay with me. It gives me a chance for some alone time (which usually means shopping).

Yes, avoiding the stampede was nice!

I just could not imagine where they were! It was very worrying!

It was a bit disconcerting watching all those empty cars arrive and the CMs checking them all out.

It was lovely to just meander along enjoying DHS in the early morning.

Oh, yes! We did ride TSM later in the day. No trip to DHS would have been complete without it. I am definitely enjoying the week off. It's so nice to not feel like I have to cram everything into the weekend.
