Lots of cool HM's too! Good job. I like the garden maze one and the drain one. I never noticed those ones before!
Low crowds that day but it WAS the recommended park. It didn't take long for the heat to get unbearable.

Happy you got to spend some quality time together and that you two were able to pull off the phone booth prank. Well done, my friends, well done.
It was great meeting her, and a lot of fun! But most of all it was good to see her getting along so well after her surgery!!!

well you know we cant wait for you to go next fall, that would mean the TR would be too far away, you should go this fall.
At the rate this one is moving, it will probably take until next fall to finish up.......

October can really go either way. I have had hot weather as well as a wake up temp of 42.

October is my favorite time to go.

With fall aproaching quickly here (today it is really chilly outside - should have worn a coat walking to work), I am thinking back to last year when I was in the last planning stages for our October trip (which included the fabulous DISmeet with you and Jonathan!)...

However, you really missed the cooler days last October. As soon as you had left, it became cold! So cold that on our last days we did not go into the water at the pool and when sitting outside, wanted to sit in the sun.

I ressemble that remark!!!!

Hmmm, you might be right!!!

Number 4 was an inside joke from our Caope Cod trip wasn't till the way back we figured out what Mark meant by holding up 4 fingers in Dan's face while he was driving


On a good month.......

American Pavilion

Chapter 11 – American Pavilion

As we arrived at the American Pavilion I noticed this...........



And then I saw this guy...........



This was my first time hitting this perfectly to enjoy The Spirit of America Fife.............



.............and Drum Corps


As the whole group came out and took their position!







I've always been a sucker for patriotic music and listening to these guys was quite a treat! This was a first for me.

It was also interesting to watch them performing the military formations that would have been used during the revolution...........







As the colors take their rightful place out in front!!!



Performance done, they head back inside...................









After their presentation, they were willing to pose for pictures, so I had Drew hop in there with them.



This was all new to me as I have seen the American Adventure a couple of times now, but none of the other entertainment. Tanya knew what was going on and that some more entertainment was about to occur. It was time to head inside for another new treat..................

Coming up Chapter 12 – Voices of Liberty

Voices of Liberty

Chapter 12 – Voices of Liberty



As we moved inside the vestibule of the American Adventure a crowd was already starting to gather. Tanya had asked me if I had seen the Voices of Liberty before, and when I said no she told me it was a must do. Pretty soon they come walking out.



As they prepared to perform, they suggested the audience move closer and form a circle around them under the rotunda of the building. This allowed for the best acoustics to enjoy their singing. Sadly I only took this one additional picture of them performing as I spent most of my time enjoying their performance, although I did make about 4 short videos on my phone of them singing. They are extremely good, and with a history heavily involved in music, I can definitely appreciate the quality of their performance. The Voices of Liberty are definitely worth the time to enjoy......again and again!



When the VoL finished their performance, everyone started filing into the theatre. As we had seen the American Adventure before Andrew was more interested in moving on, but we took the opportunity to look for some potential Hidden Mickeys.





As we looked around, the CM who was at the front door noticed what we were doing. He took a lot of time sharing facts about the vestibule area and also the building itself. If you get a chance, chat up a CM there sometime who is in some down time while the AA is showing and he has some time. Lots of cool information about the paintings along the walls of the vestibule, and also he told us the story about.................



In case any of you aren't aware, the face of the clock is in Roman numerals, but the 4 is shown as IIII instead of IV. I believe he told us that was traditional for that period because of the potential for the IV and the VI to be confused since you are looking at them upside down. Seems silly to us now, but I guess back then it had a legitimate purpose.

Andrew and I planned to continue around World Showcase in search of the elusive HM. Tanya decided this would be a good time to part ways and head back towards the International Gateway and back to her room. We said our goodbyes and headed off in opposite directions. As it always is when meeting DISfriends, it was great getting to spend some time with Tanya and share our love of all things Disney!!!

I always have to stop here as I approach Germany Pavilion. I always loved model trains, and this time we also located some HMs. See if you can pick out which of the pictures includes a HM without help...........







Another rather well known HM.........


We decided to stop at Caramel Kuche and grab a snack. Drew's chocolate and caramel brownie


And I chose chocolate and caramel fudge


As we headed further around World Showcase, the crowds were still fairly light. This is what was ahead of us as we crossed the bridge on the way to China.


As we walked I decided to text and see if Jonathan and Alison were on the way to the park yet. Turned out that Jonathan wasn't feeling very well and they decided to just hang around the resort, and maybe hit the pool or a water park later to escape the heat. Drew and I hopped a bus and he was totally interested in possibly heading out to a water park again.

But Marv had something else on the agenda for the afternoon....................


Coming up Chapter 13 – The Marvical Express

Great update! I will now have to try to catch the 'Voices of Liberty' when we go next week!
I must be blind, but I can't find the hidden Mickey in the pic of the guy in armor suit.
