Great that you were able to get everyone in at Park Fare. Never went there but heard it was fun. Can't wait for the next update on the further adventures of the extended Duck family.

First Full Day

I apologize for the lack of updates. Many of my fellow dads have let it be known this is unacceptable.

When I left off I mentioned that there was going to be some torture tactics used to enforce the first rule of the Duck!! Do not make me late!!! As you can see below I was ruthless in my use of water boarding techniques. I picked these skills up at my local Y. It’s a jungle there.







We did not leave for HS until after lunch. We had a surprise zebra birthday cake delivered before we left (I forgot to take a pic) so we were pretty jacked up on sugar as we headed for the bus stop. I love that the bus stops at Kidani are divided up between a few parks. I took some animal pics on our way since we had to pass one of the observation decks.




Continued in next post...

First full day part deux

Once at HS, I rushed over to the new Star Tours for three fast passes since it was just my nephew, FIL, and I who wanted to do it. While we waited for our time we headed into Animators Court and we ran into these guys.





The Incredibles is one of my favorite Pixar movies of all time. I am so disappointed they never did a sequel. We also did the little animation class so the kids could get the chance to draw a character. We all did Tigger and the kids loved it.

The boys headed over to Star Tours while the girls headed to Honey I shrunk the Kids play yard. Star Tours = Awesomeness out of this world!!! I was amazed and loved every minute of it. We had Vader in the opening scene and when my 9 year old nephew saw him he yelled NO at the top of his lungs. It wasn’t until after the ride did I learn he has never seen Star Wars (since remedied). What kind of parent doesn’t show their kids Star Wars. He loved it though.

Walked to the back of the park to meet the ladies and saw them standing outside. Apparently everyone and their third cousins and the ones form Kentucky all decided to go into the HISTK play yard. My wife said she thought she had lost the kids it was that full. So we let everyone calm down and rest, it was 82 degrees this day and the in-laws did not believe me when I gave them the plan on what to wear so guess who was sweating like crazy.

We went and stood in line to meet our favorite Disney Channel stars…….That’s right Phineas and Ferb (cue intro music…you know you are singing it).

Since there was no Perry, I stood in for the awesome Agent P.




We did do Muppet Vision and then headed over to Pizza Planet for a slice.

After that it was time to head over and catch the Osbourne Lights! All I can say is that they are amazing. I had goose bumps when it started. We hung out there for awhile and then I took my nephew to ride Tower of Terror. He was all excited until we stepped into the first room and then he wouldn’t stop with the questions. Are we going to die, is this just part of the show, do these people look like this all of the time? In the end he screamed like a little girl but still talks about how cool it was.



In our next installment we will be heading to MK for our next part of the mission. Will we make rope drop? How many Dole Whips will be consumed? What do you mean we need to leave?

Stay Tuned………..

Agreed! We were there last year when they were plugging the new Phineas and Ferb Christmas Movie, so the lights danced to Phineas and Ferb music and had a few bits where Agent P saved WDW from Doofenschmirtz. I check the camera when we got home and found it didn't record any sound.

Then you should have taken all the tickets so you could ride more than once.

I don't see any Agent P. in that picture. Perry's right there next to Phineas though.
