I could have sworn that I had replied to your latest update already. You got some really nice pictures, including the new one for your living room. Love Homegoods!

Thanks!! Usually I'm not a fan of first floor rooms, but this was really nice! The little patio was a nice bonus! I'm sure first floor is something you can request!

Hahaha I had my doubts there for awhile too!

I honestly did not. I know . And this wasn't even the dumbest planning mistake I made...you'll hear about that one eventually!

That really would have made for an awesome and buttery day!!

Wow, I can't believe you REALLY didn't get a Napoleon! You have much stronger will power than I do!

Love your new painting from HG!

My guess for your Future World rides are Test Track and Living With The Land.

I probably should have put "ride" in quotation marks...

Well, no one guessed where we headed first in Future World.

To be fair, it is only marginally more predictable than going to the Circle of Life movie with Timon and Pumbaa.



Yes, we've been to Captain EO before. Yes, we know how hilariously '80s it is.

And that's why we go.

(Also, ALL Wingnut's idea.)

Is the song stuck in your head yet? You're welcome.

Also, we were lucky(?) enough to get to see the whole entire preshow. During which Wingnut just kept saying, "I can't believe Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas made THIS."

World saved and evil monster turned into attractive woman, we moved on.

Of course we had to go visit my favorite Figment of imaaaaaaaaaaagination next!

And then the leaping fountains.





I love the whole Imagination pavilion area, it's so fun and bright-colored. And awesome flying and gravity-defying water features don't hurt either!

We then made our way past the timeline of progress (I have no idea what this is actually called).

I had Wingnut take a picture of me with the printing press marker, as I love books.



It was around 3:30 at this point (thank you camera time stamp!), and we had a 5:00 ADR at Sanaa. We knew that we wanted to leave enough time for Disney transport, and also knew if we got to AKL early, there's more than enough to explore and look at. So we decided to go on one more ride for today, and then make our way out of the park.

That ride?

Spaceship Earth, of course!

I love Spaceship Earth, even though now every time I go on it, I long for the old Jeremy Irons narration. ("This, our Spaceship Earth.")

(Judi Dench may say that line too, I think she does, but it's just not the same.)

(But I will say that the computers being developed in the garages in California is one of my new favorite scenes.)

My picture came out kind of Swiss-cheesey and crooked. Wingnut's, of course, is perfectly normal.



Seriously? This just doesn't look comfortable.



I think Wingnut is eating in an aquarium here. And I'm in the Alps. At the same table?



A toast, to the start of our vacation!



Or, you know, to the beginning of our future. That too.



We then made our way to the bus stop for Animal Kingdom Lodge, and waited for the motorcoach to arrive.

I was almost right with my Future World prediction!

I have no memory of Captain EO from the 80's and we haven't seen it yet since it's return...maybe on our next trip!

I love the Imagination area too, I love the fountains, I remember them from when I was a kid!

Ahh, Spaceship Earth! I actually don't care who's narrating, I just love that ride!

Hope you didn't have to wait too long for your motorcoach!

Great update. So great that I am going to borrow it when I get to the Captain EO part of my TR. Looking back all I can remember is it was over the top 80's and I was in my 20's in the 80's. that was my prime. Shouldn't I remember everything 80's?

NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You even knew the song. I am totally impressed. That Captain EO movie was just plain dumb, but it WAS Michael Jackson and everyone was super skinny, so for that reason I watched it.

I totally love that picture of you! That's awesome (too lazy to cut and paste it). I hope you have it framed because you look adorable.

I hope you loved Sanaa.

Tell wignut to put his tongue back in his mouth!

I have never seen Captain EO, but I am so tempted! I kind of like things that are pointlessly odd.

Granted, I never went on Spaceship Earth when it had Jeremy Irons, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Dame Judi Dench! I was so excited to know I'd hear her familiar, comforting voice the first time I rode! There's just no way it could get any better than that. Maybe. Now going to find a video of his voice...you know, just for research purposes...

You're right--your photo is Swiss cheesy! Makes me laugh. I have one to compete, though. It'll be up on this day of my TR, and it is possibly the worst SE picture EVER. I love it. Having a bad photo kind of makes the ride even more worthwhile!

Hahaha, I think we've all been there where we ask the same question of Captain EO. Really? All that talent and THIS is what they come up with?

I miss Jeremy Irons narrating Spaceship Earth. ACTUALLY, I miss Walter Cronkite narrating SE. I like Judy Dench, but it's not quite the same.

I just love Spaceship Earth. I can't wait to see what you thought about Saana and AKL since we are going to be there in 63 more days !!! You look much warmer on this trip than you did last trip. It has been a very mild winter. My cousin in Colorado just got 18 inches of snow so it makes you wonder what might be coming east. But for now, I have tennis plans for Sunday - yay.

I used to Love Captain EO back in the day. I actually had a stuffed "Hooter" (the elephant) he was so cute. We missed it when we were there in May, it wasn't a big priority but I had hoped we would have time.

I miss Jeremy Irons, too but I will say that I am partial to the Walter Cronkite version.

Being a HUGE MJ fan, I was so excited to see Captain EO last December. When the show was over I was like huh? Maybe in 1985 (or whenever it was made) it was cool but really?

Loved your S.E picture.... i know a good chiropractor if you need one.
