I had a guy in front of me on the Mexico boat ride. Not only was he taking photos non-stop, he stunk.

Getting soaked on Pirates, yes! That happened to me too! I thought it was a one time deal because I hadn't read that it happened to anyone else in other TRs and I thought it was just me! Sorry, I got excited there.

Biggest pet peeve at WDW, flash photographers. UGH! I was on Pirates with one once, she sat behind me. I asked her once to stop, she didn't. I asked her a 2nd time, she didn't and her friends then told her to stop (btw, she was a grown adult with 2 adult friends.) So the 3rd time, I put my hand up in front of her camera and MADE her stop. I told her that she was ruining the whole ride for everyone. She looked at her friends for help and they just looked at her like "we told you so." I try to stop them if I can and then when I get off the ride, I like to take photos of THEM. Oooh we should start a thread on the DIS. Take photos of flash photographers that ruin your experiences and post them!

Bravo to yall for avoiding the tour groups (at least at that moment. Ugh, tour groups. )

I love the corny jokes too! I just find punny jokes hilarious, even though they're intended to be lame.

RIGHT? What's with the water on Pirates VIOLATING guests these days?

Aw, the Tiki room! I've never done it before, but I'm glad now that I didn't do it when it was the Under New Management version. Yay for the original! It sounds really cute.

I remember your whole Beaker hat dilema! You should've bought it silly!

Love love love The Jungle Cruise, it's so fun! Especially when you have a witty skipper. Good move on fast walking past the tour groups. Were they Brazilian by any chance? Last Jan. we saw quite a few groups, I thought my retinas were going to be permanently damaged by all those fluorescent t-shirts.

PotC is soooo good! Though I don't recall getting soaked on it! How weird. I know the canons you're talking about but we've never gotten wet.

Oh, the proverbial idiot flasher on dark rides! It's difficult to believe that people cannot understand that bright flash on a dark ride = freaking flash for everyone. You mean if I flash my camera then the whole area will light up? Um, yes genius, that's generally how camera flashes work.

And then you got stuck with him again in the Tiki Room?!?! Ugh, bad timing. Maybe he was stalking you and Wingnut? Seeing the Tiki birds is on my list for next trip though! I love all the old school Disney attractions. (When you wrote "Tiki, tiki, tiki, tiki room" the song popped into my head! It's on my 4 Parks CD!)

So sorry to hear about your job situation. Hopefully your search will be brief and fruitful!

Sounds like you had a wonderful early morning at the MK. There is truly not much better in the world that the MK empty early in the morning (or very late at night )

How cool that you got into the HM queue ahead of everyone? We missed it, as we were too eager to get Max on the ride this time around.

...and yes...people who take flash photographs on rides...UGH! Thanks for messing with my ride experience. Its just so consummately inconsiderate.

They must have done something to Pirates, because I've been reading in lots of TR's about people getting soaked lately! My camera got splashed in October and I was SO freaked out that it was going to break!

Ugh, I can't stand people and their flashes on the dark rides!

I really need to do the Jungle Cruise. I love corny jokes like that!

You got wet on PotC?! Both my sister and I did, too! I forget when exactly that happened because I didn't write it down. I am SO glad it wasn't some freak incident!

Okay, call me crazy, but I swear that when we went through the HM queue that the organ did play music...I think that's even why I have a picture of my hands playing it with both girls playing at the same time...am I insane??

Love the corny jokes. I cannot believe that I've still never seen any Tiki birds!

I hate flashers! Come to think of it, I am pretty repulsed by BOTH kinds of flashers. There's no such thing as a good flasher!

Wow I was far behind! I have been behind on a bunch of the TR's I have been following.

I have been catching up this evening, but I wanted to jump in and say I am so sorry about your job, I actually just started working about a month ago after being out of work for 10 months. It was so hard to find something in my field which actually was very shocking to me (I am a nurse) Luckily I had Unemployment to keep us going until I got this job (Actually with the same company in a different capacity).

Your meal at Sanaa looked good, My SIL and BIL ate there when they were there in March and liked it too, I would like to try it but DH and I are not real adventurous so it may be a while before we add that one...

So sorry you kept getting lost at the Poly, hopefully that got better.

Crystal Palace is on my list, that Puffed French Toast really looks yummy! I love Pooh and Tigger!

ETA: I finished reading, I love the Haunted Mansion! We didn't do the new queue when we went because it was fairly crowded and also we used the w/c entrance for my MIL and her scooter. I will say that I LOVE the new Hitchiking Ghosts! It was neat for my Dad because he didn't know they had changed them so it was a fun surprise for him.

I love Adventureland. It was a pleasure to read the quick notes on those Magic Kingdom classics to start my morning.
I'd love to be boarding a Jungle Cruise boat this morning.
Or this afternoon.
Or this evening.
Yay for all the folks that get to enjoy that Extra Disney Day today!
