12/9: Our First Trip Through the WASH and SPIN Cycles!


Next we headed for Frontierland. Around 11 AM the standby times for Splash and BTMRR were both under 10 minutes. Really. What a treat! We got fastpasses for BTMRR and headed for Splash, where we barely waited at all. I really looked forward to riding Splash on this trip and intended to make up for lost time. We never rode it at all last December because of the cold. It had been over 2 years and we were long overdue!

Uh oh....... what will she back out???????

Nah........ no backing out on this trip. Katie was in complete thrill ride junkie mode!

Not sure why I didn't buy this ride photo, but I should have. I really like it now.

We somehow escaped getting drenched then headed for BTMRR. We enjoyed joking about the Stacy video they play in the resort rooms about Splash being the "wash cycle" and BTMRR being the "spin cycle".

Ready to go........

I love this series of photos and will probably do a scrapbook page of them. I'll spare you posting ALL of them. I was on burst mode and racking up the frames....... FAST!

After the ride we grabbed fastpasses for Splash and headed back toward Liberty Square. My daughter, being the proper young lady she is....... can never walk past the gun toys without playing.

But alas, the autorities must have caught up with her becuase this is where I found her next.......

I was ready for lunch. I had woken up with a sore throat and a lot of sinus drainage and wanted to keep something in my stomach. We ate at Columbia Harbor House. I thought I'd be getting a tuna sandwich but opted for the shrimp instead so I could have the broccoli as a side. It had been a busy morning and it felt good just to sit down for a bit.

Nice work as always, Janet. I enjoy reading these--you are a good storyteller!

I know the view from your third photo (with the other log going down the drop) very well. This is exactly where I got stuck for 45 minutes on Thanksgiving Day. Disnerd that I am, I loved it.

Love the pictures from BTMR. Dennis like to "smoosh" the kids on rides too. I'm really going to miss BTMR this trip it will be closed.

I love that idea of Splash & BTMRR being the wash & spin cycle! (I actually havent seen that until now haha)

Those pics from BTMRR are incredible! One of my goals after my May trip last year was to take more pictures on rides, but I'm usually worried about it getting wet on Splash, and then, thanks to having a little point & shoot, non-flash pics don't turn out great..

Somehow, I've never seen those statues of Brer Fox, Bear & Rabbit! How have I missed those every time!?

And this part's really random, but HOW does Katie do the parks in flats?! I could handle the evening of the Halloween party & that's it! She's tougher than I am!

LOL! I'd love it too! I wouldn't mind sitting there a bit, but the view would be decidedly less interesting with everyone sitting still and no logs to watch! I sat there the whole time with the camera up hoping for a log to come down. I'd like another shot at that one with a slightly slower shutter speed to show a little more movement.

Thanks Vanessa! I'd sure miss BTMRR too. I seriously lost count of how many times we rode it. I will say that after missing Splash last year, we enjoyed getting back to it all the more this year. Apparently absence DOES make the heart grow fonder.

Better check out those bounceback deals while you're there......

Thanks! I can't wait to put those BTMRR shots together in a scrapbook page. I love the expression on their faces and how they all line up in a series. I also like the clouds in the sky.

I can see how you'd miss the Brer statues. It's a crazy busy area. Fortunately this day it wasn't hard to get my shot. A week later I wanted that same shot with Katie and her girlfriend....... the one wearing a boot for her broken foot..... I got my shot, but it was like a giant game of frogger fighting the crowds to get what I wanted.

Katie has done well in flats on all of our past trips. But for some reason these didn't work out very well. By day's end we had bought some Micey flip-flops and she swapped off the rest of the trip. My favorite shot is her pulling up her skirt of her gown at CRT to show Cinderella her special Mickey fllip-flop slippers!

LOL! Yeah, I think Dumbo would be easier. I always do that one backwards too, but nobody has said anything.

So many great pictures. This entire update shows both parts of Disney World - the excitement of the rides and the chance to take it easy.

Thanks! I'm trying hard to find those little relaxing moments more and more often. And while I am utterly driven to mark all the "must do's" off my list, its the little moments that make me stop and smile when I look back on a trip.

Now some person I don't even know reminds me there's no eating, drinking, smoking, or flash photography allowed in my dream.

Those BTMRR shots are great! Love 'em!

This isn't the wash & spin cycles though! I think I've seen the "Must Do" list a few toooo many times. Those are at AK, but it made me giggle because the same idea fits perfectly for these two.

Very cute that Katie stops to play with the guns, too!

I'm probably the last person to ask. I hadn't been on it since 09. And I was fiddling with the camera so much that some of the details could have easily been lost on me. But nothing really jumped out at me.

Now Soarin'........... that one's in need of some TLC.

LOL! I wondered if anyone would catch that. Katie decided to take some creative license with that so long ago I almost forgot. I think the original was Kali River Rapids and Primevil Whirl.

You'll see later in our trip where the "spin cycle" gets a little mixed up and becomes our very own "wash cycle".
