I think we have met a couple of other Declans, one was here on the Dis I think. Your youngest do have unique names; pretty cool though.

We arrived around 9:30 and grabbed a FP for Test Track. Declan and I decided to Ride MS, Pooksma declined so we went for the orange side. This really is the only way to ride MS. We walked right into the team room.










Took this one for Pooksma



We had another successful mission but they still left us stranded in Mars.



After finding Pooksma we headed for our turn on TT. The preshow area wasn't working so we walked right through the room into the loading area.







Inside the car showroom, we stopped to look at this and chatted with the Richard Petty rep.



My dream is to take part in the driving experience, as soon as I ding the extra $1200.

We picked up the KP mission and we were headed to Norway but first we needed to ride SE.

We checked in for the KP mission in Norway and we were sent to Mexico.









We saved the world with the help of the Kim Possible gang and got another mission; this time in Japan.











After saving the world, again; we headed to the Electric Umbrella for some lunch. I didn't realize how small the seating area was for this restaurant. I always thought it was much bigger. After lunch we headed back to POFQ around 3 pm to get some rest before heading to the Poly for dinner.

More later.

Just catching up...sorry for the whole ordeal with the lanyard. That's terrible. I'm glad you had Molly to help out!

And nice job saving the world twice! My kids love those spy missions.

Great pictures once again...I really need to purchase a better camera! I guess then I'd have to learn how to use it too though
She was pretty subtle wasn't she.

DSLRs are pretty simple to use with all the auto settings but there is so much more to them. Digital is great for learning and playing with all the settings.

She was a great CM, hope there are many more like her.

The KP missions are lots of fun; I think we have got through most of them.

Update time!!

So we decided to head out for "Ohana around 5:30. The plan was to take the EPCOT or MK bus, whichever came first, and then take the monorail to the Poly. Mk bus came first so we jumped on. We arrived at the Poly and checked in for dinner around 6:15. They moved the check in booth since our last visit and there was huge line but it turned out to be got people without ADRs.

As we waited we looked around the lobby area.









We didn't wait long and were soon seated. The view from our seat.



Dinner was fantastic and so was the entertainment.







After finishining up our meal, we hoped back on the monorail for the short ride to MK for Wishes and EMH.

taken by Declan




First up was a visit to the laugh floor.







Followed by a visit to Stitch.



Then we went to get a find a spot for Wishes and got to see the Memories of Me display on the Castle. This show is very cool.







Then came Wishes.















More next post.

After Wishes we headed for a ride on Space Mountain (very cool at night ) and then headed for Adventureland. We had never been on Jungle Cruise at night so we wanted to try it. We waited maybe five minutes before boarding our river boat.








After returning from our cruise, cruised the pirate world on POTC and then rode the rails on BTMRR. We finished up the night at HM. There was not one there so we got to take our time going through the new queue and the new ending is pretty funny.












Next up for us was a trip to the Animal Kingdom and a first for me.

Ahem! Thanks Queen and as for my DH, one isn't so bad but no more please.


I really thought the Memories pre show was cool but wondered to myself how many of those people were still in the park. Any thoughts?

Happy Thanksgiving

Looks like much fun at 'Ohana.
It was odd having the check-in stand on the other side of the lobby, wasn't it?

Main Street at night is so pretty.

I feel safe with Sheriff Declan and Sheriff Dad on patrol. Cute picture.

Ma, you look lovely. I understand the not liking pictures thing, but you have no worries at all.
