I'm kinda hoping too that since it'll be showing every night, it won't be this crazy mad crowd situation since it's not just 1 or 2 nights a week. It might change the show from this crazy hassle of a thing to something actually doable and enjoyable for more people. Guess I'll be on these boards seeing how the nightly show changes things in early August for a better perspective.

I somehow didn't see that Chocolate Extinction until now… wow is that a beautiful piece of dessert!! We are going to T-Rex on our upcoming trip and I might just need to order us one of those!!

Great news about Fantasmic! I was hoping to catch it as well, and it definitely helps being on nightly! Your boys should love it! And it is nice to hear that they can handle a late night here and there!

That's what I'm thinking. That's how it was before they limited it to 2 nights a week. Disney made a huge mistake doing that in my opinion. I think you should definitely go see it now, i'm sure the crowds will be a lot more manageable.

Random Photos Week 2 Frontierland


I just love this photo, it shows how nice this particular week is at WDW. This was taken on a weekday, Thursday maybe, at around 10am. We were heading to Splash and BTMRR, which were both listed as walk on and it was clear they were considering there is not a single person in this photo. As we were walking along I noticed there was hardly anyone around so I thought I better take a picture of this. I turned around and took one aiming behind me as well and there is not a single person in that one either. We rode both rides twice.

Wow, amazing how empty it is in those pictures. What great shots! Looking at them makes me realize I don't slow down nearly enough to appreciate everything around me, I'm too busy avoiding people with the stroller and hurrying to the next ride!

Great pictures! I love Disney always, but when the crowds are that low, it's just so special. I have some like that. Last April during evening EMH we had the park basically to ourselves and road Splash 3 times without getting off cause of no lines!

Those are from the last week of August?! I can't wait for my girls trip! It is going to be vastly different from the crowds there in the next two weeks (Ack!).

And yippee for tickets arriving! We had a hard time receiving ours because we had to be home to sign for them - and my timing and the mail lady's timing never quite synced for a few days...but we did finally sign and receive them.

Great Frontierland pictures! I love heading over there early on a slow day & seeing it nearly empty. I don't know that I've ever seen it THAT empty though.

I'm jealous that your UT tickets already arrived! I ordered mine on the 10th & I still haven't received them. After reading that you had gotten yours, I tracked mine & they are in the next town over so hopefully I'll have them tomorrow.

I hope the every night Fantasmic schedule thins out the crowds a bit. If they extend it through November we might actually consider going to see it! We haven't seen it since 2006. Although I'll miss those quiet non-Fantasmic evenings at DHS.

Random Update 57 days!!!

I've been slacking, but the last week of school and first week of summer vacay have been a bit crazy with appointments and functions and golf camp and blah blah blah... I've barely been able to sit at the computer to get any design work done let alone anything else. Crazy!!!

57 days till WDW!!!!

Let's see where we are on the TO DO LIST:
Mousekeeping envelopes DONE
Buy park tickets from UT DONE
Epcot Passports DONE
Photopass Pre-order
Tweak ADRS DONE
Park bag (can't decide on what to bring to parks!) DONE I ordered 2 VB's I've been wanting with birthday money I received so I'll see once I get them if they are enough. I want something small, don't like carrying much.
Jibbitz for kids Crocs DONE ordered online, cheaper than getting them there)
Try for CR upgrade to Tower again
Alien Green Mickey Heads from Home Depot DONE
Book Happy Limousine transfers
Order Disney Visa Redemption card
Underwater Camera? DONE Got a Kodak Sport something or other for $66. It's 12mp which is better than my point&shoot!
Online checkin hotel
Checkin for Flight (24 hours before)

Itinerary Tweaks:
I've made a few adjustments on the Itinerary as well in light of Fantasmic being shown nightly now, which I'm not really thrilled with, I was fine with not seeing it, but now feel like we should try given the more plentiful opportunities.

So Saturday has been tweaked
DHS early (Sci FI lunch)
MK evening for MSEP, then Memories then Wishes. (we'll do it all in one night since the kids seem to be able to handle a later night once inawhile.)

Sunday
MK morning
Afternoon pool
DHS evening for Fantasmic (if we change our mind we'll just go to MK for Wishes)

Random Photo (which I didn't get around to yesterday)
One of my favorite rides. Took this photo from Tom Sawyer Island.



We've had a few movie nights in the past few weeks too, we did Peter Pan and last night was Alice in Wonderland (the classic animated one from way back when). No pictures

Now I shall return to slacking since I'll be internet-less for the next week or so up at the lake.
