You also got some great shots of Tomorrowland - it's a shame Space Mountain was not working on this occassion and that message sounds confusing

Yay on seeing a rainbow!
Thanks! It was just perfect!

Thank you! I know, so weird!

We thought it was so cool!

That's a cool rainbow, stretching across Tomorrowland.
Thanks! Yeah, it's so cool to see! There's less crowds, and they pipe the music right in, so it's like you're actually in the park watching it!

Day 10:

Mom woke up at about 5:30 and slipped outside to take pictures of the waking resort. From the beach she saw cue to cue lights on the castle, no doubt rehearsing that night’s Summer Nightastic show! She also said that there were a lot of ducks on the beach, but no people around except for CMs getting the pool ready. She said it was very peaceful and serene. She took lots of great pictures!















































I woke up at 7:30 because today we’re doing the rope drop at DHS! Step dad stayed back at the resort, I think he was pretty maxed out on parks! We were on the bus by 8:30, and made it there in time to be smushed right in the middle of the crowd! Luckily being 6 feet tall, I can see over most people, so my mom made me lead the way during the TSM dash! There was a green army man patrolling the queue!

We got FPs for 10:20-11:20, and decided to head over to TOT which we were able to ride 2 times in a row without much wait! We were going to ride it again, but the wait was steadily increasing, so we decided not to. However, I did manage to record the entire ride on my little dinky digital camera! I was pretty proud of myself on that one too! Mom took some great pics of the queue while we waited!









































We tried RNR but the line was far too long, so we decided to pass on it.

We took pictures of the pretty buildings and props, my favorite part of DHS! Mom couldn’t resist putting me on the suitcases! “Pretend you’re waiting for a bus!”



















This happened a lot today- “Hey Emma, go stand over there so I can take your picture!” You’ll see what I mean!

We did, however, get to see a great street show! We never usually stop for these, but since it was just us, and we weren’t in a hurry, we decided to stop and watch. It was too funny! They had us laughing! The woman was great!

Those early morning Poly pictures are so beautiful! I think seeing the sunrise over Seven Seas Lagoon must be one of the coolest experiences.

Sounds like a great day a DHS so far. Tower of Terror is so much fun.

Thank you, PirateKate! It was breathtaking to be up before anyone and to watch the sun rise around the lagoon. The peace and quiet were so lovely. I would have LOVED to share it with my DD (ahem), but I think she would have killed me if I'd woken her up so early! hahahaah!

Luckily, Emma was a really good sport about all of the picture taking! It made for some hilarity too, of course!

I love all the pictures in the update! Sounds like y'all had a lot of fun picture taking! As I was reading/looking through your trip report, Reid climbed up into my chair & he saw the picture of you on the suitcases & he said, "Awww, she's cute mommy!" So, you officially have a 3 year old admirer down in south Louisiana!

Thank you! We love taking pictures, so we take TONS of them! Oh that is too cute! Well, I think he's very cute too!

We really wanted to ride RNR, so we decided to head back and get FPs for later (12:20-1:20). Our FPs for TSM were ready, so we headed over to ride! I tried to take some pics of the queue because I absolutely love it!! But they didn’t come out so well.













TSM was fun like always, but I FINALLY BEAT MOM! Wooo!!! First time ever! I was so excited!

We went over to Beauty and the Beast to get good seats before the crowd came in! And it DID! There was a huge group of South Americans behind us, and guests just kept pouring in the park! We figured we should zip over to Epcot soon! Anyway, we had great seats, but since the theatre is outside, it was very hot!! It was a great show- very cute and fun! However at one point, Mrs. Pots took a tumble, and couldn’t get back up because of the costume! Mom and I were dying!!! Luckily she was near the side of the stage, so she quickly was taken off, but my goodness we were laughing so hard!! We couldn’t keep it in, and people were starting to look at us!!! We tried to concentrate on the show to keep our minds off of it! Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately for the actor, I didn’t get a pic of it! My reaction time was not quick enough!

Too funny about the Mrs. Potts character falling! I wouldn't have been able to contain myself either! Beauty & the Beast is my favorite of the Disney parks stage shows. I'm hoping on our next trip I might actually get to beat Ed at TSM! That has become one of our favorite rides.

I know! We were laughing so hard! Me too! It's so fun and bright! I bet you will! I NEVER thought I would ever beat my mom (or anyone) at TSM! We love it!
