I love Expedition Everest! I finally went on it and it was awesome, though I couldn't figure out where the Yeti was supposed to be? I'm not sure if the strobe light effect was working (... okay maybe I closed my eyes) or what. But for someone who never saw the Yeti, it's not really missing?

I'm wasn't very impressed with the Safari. I didn't really get the reason for the poacher storyline, I wanted to hear more about the real animals! But I think I had the wrong idea about what it really was as a 'ride.'

I'm glad you enjoyed being solo! I had a small amount of solo time but it wasn't quite as fun as I thought, but that may have been because my boyfriend wanted me to wait until he got back to do any rides. A photography trip would be fun, I think.
The Yeti could be easy to miss if you're not focusing for him (or closing your eyes. ).

The Safari used to be very different with the poacher storyline and it was much more relevant IMO back in the day.

Hope you have a fabulously magical trip!! Can't wait to hear about NYE in WDW!!! DH actually said "it would be pretty cool to be in WDW for New Years!" I told him I wasn't sure I was brave enough to go to MK with 50 million other people but I could totally go for an MK view room at Poly or GF with a view of the fireworks! He LOVED that idea!! Hmmmmm...

Hello Danielle! Timmy here, back from the dead! Yeah, I joined the ranks of the 999 ghosts to fulfill my dream of the "volunteer" for "a thousand". We had a great swinging wake but after awhile it all just went downhill, I guess it was the dead personalities...

Okay, yeah none of that happened, but I'm back to comment on TRs. I got so behind I don't think I'll be commenting on the chapters I missed, but I have to say I just whizzed through all these chapters and actually laughed out loud. I think the resident Guinea Pig was caught off guard for the moment. I don't know, when you add a huge cookie spilling frosting goodness over a plate and then "What in tarnation?!" You get laughter lol Well... I'll definitely be commenting on your future chapters and leaving some notes on your other TR. I know you're in the world right now, but I'll just leave this for when you get back...

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Hope you are having a blast at Disney. And I really hope you are staying warm down there. I hear there is quite the cold blast. Hopefully you brought along your Slytherin scarf to keep you warm. And maybe grab yourself a Muppet hat?

I'm back!

Hi guys!

I've been back for this week, but it's been so busy with work that I haven't been able to get anything done on the DIS. On top of that, my mom fell the other day down the stairs and fractured her fibula. Poor mom. She's doing very well, but it was a pretty long day and she's not feeling the greatest now. Hopefully I'll be able to find some way to lift her spirits.

I will be working on the first posts of the new TR tomorrow hopefully and will be posting an update for the others as well. Thanks for your patience and I hope to see you guys on the new TR.
