We have encountered the cowboy & the gangster on the GMR. I love that ride, I've seen most of those movies.

A few years ago a friend of mine & her daughter were on Spaceship Earth when it stopped. It would not start again so they had to walk down from the top of the hill in the sphere! No way could I do that!

Awwww I love that Connor was picked for boot camp!! If there ever was a boy chosen to play in a role at DHS they found their man!!
What a cute story about the girls and Bo I thought of Chelsea when I slung my arm through his in October and of you when I saw the chairs at AKV
Hope you are enjoying your time off!

I have been on the GMR numerous times and never have gotten the cowboy!

What a great experience for Connor to get to go through that "training" with the Army Man. Too cute!

Little unexpected and fun moments like that make each trip different and special.

I'd say we get the gangster 4 to 1 over the cowboy.

Is there any pumpkin cake left at your house? I could go for a piece for breakfast this morning before I get started.

Yes, the convention and the YC were both amazing! I'm thinking a stay at the YC in addition to our DVC stay may happen summer 2012. I'm hesistant to change our 10 nights at BLT for August 2011. BLT can be so hard to get. Plus, we do spend a ton of time at the MK. And with monorail access to Epcot and a rental car, we won't NEED the private entrance as much. But it is nice.

I was able to hit the parks everyday after sessions at the convention. The crowds were not bad Thursday and Friday. But Saturday at the MK was a nightmare. Wall to wall people That experience sort of changed my desire to go Christmas week.

Are you booking your summer 2011 vacation soon? Less than a month to book free dining

Aww, Connor looks too cute in those Toy Soldier pictures! Must have melted your heart that he wanted to participate!
We also have gotten the gangster and cowboy equally.
