It's way late for me, so I scrolled through your pictures quickly. I'll read in the morning, but I just have to say...

There is a picture with Kermit's autograph, but no Kermit hands?

Your morning sounds great. I was trying to read your update this morning before I left for work, but I failed. So I will come back later to see your pictures.

Ugh for screeching teenage girls in the back row. I always seem to get a screamer or two when I ride ToT.

Lunch sounds like it was a hit.

You really got a lot done.

Wait - you could not find a stuffed Kermit in the dump shop? That is just wrong!

I have never, ever gotten the cowboy on the GMRide ...

I don't blame Zach... I wouldn't have been happY with the screechers either...

I love those fountains in the Muppet courtyard...

Sci Fi is a good time... - we always have fun there, usually stick to basics in terms of food but the atmosphere is so fun... David always requests it...

Great car photos...

Hey Amy! I want to do the same kind of day in October; split DHS/AK. Did you grab a FP for TSM when you first got there? If you didn't, did you have a long wait later in the morning?

Is the bus going to AK easy enough to find?

Sounds like you got a bunch done for only having a half day! I'm hoping for the same!

I love the ToT shirts too. DS11 has the red one.
You are so lucky to be going back again so soon!!
We may be going in April but doing mostly Uni/IOA since everybody's sick of Disney. and do one day for me. Just as long as I get that I'll be happy!!

What a fantastic day at Hollywood Studios! You know how to hit the headliners!

Sorry about the annoying girls on ToT. Cheerleaders???

Wow, you really have lucked out on the Cowboy scene. We saw it once, and my DH missed it because he was out harvesting FPs while we rode.

I'm glad being a bit late for your Sci Fi ADR was not an issue. So Tim liked the shrimp pasta, huh? I ordered it once and it was the nastiest thing I have ever had at Disney. My husband asked me why I ordered a pasta dish at a burger place? I don't know!

Looking forward to hearing about your day at AK.

Great pictures at DHS!

We finally got around to trying Sci-fi on our last trip and really enjoyed it! The atmosphere is so cool!

It sounds like you had a great day!

Hi Amy- Just wondering if you've looked into flights for April yet?
Do you know when I can find out when SW will open flights for April 13?? I thought there was somewhere on the site but I can't find it. I originally wanted to leave Friday the 12th right after school but I missed the open date so now they are ridiculous!!!!
If the flights are to crazy we're going in July instead.

I thought it was the Studios tram but the next picture in photobucket was at AK so I couldn't be sure.

I love the last, silly, photo pass pic of you guys. It made me smile.
I love that Wizard of Oz section too - I think I spot something new every time. The girls were quite annoying! It was so funny that the CM said something to them before the ride even started.

Sci Fi was fun - I'm glad we gave it another try.

We love the silly PP pictures!

Zach took some great pics of Mom! He does a good job.

Love the photopass pics!!! Great family pics!!
Hi Doreen! Glad you found some time to get caught up! I saw that you've been updating again lately. Now I have to get caught up on your TR!

There are some great bonus pictures on the PP CDs. Last November we got some great Christmas pictures. And there were some October people in my share so we got some Halloween pictures too! I think it's based on the day & location you have PP pictures taken.

Can you believe it? No Kermit in the dump shop! Well actually there was a little tiny magnetic stuffed animal but no sleep-in-the-bed-with-you Kermit! I couldn't believe it.

We had a fun morning at DHS. It's nice to go back without anything left on the to-do list and just enjoy the park.

So many people say they have never had the cowboy... I don't understand why we've had him/her so many times! I don't think they always run a cowboy scene depending on crowds. We usually go during spring break, but ours is late & the crowds are usually way down by then.

I think the expectations were lower for Sci Fi this time around. We thought of it more as counter service type food in a cool setting. Either the food was better or the expectations were more realistic... either way, we enjoyed it.

PMing you about the FP...

Sorry, can't help with the bus question... We had a car so we drove.

We did get a lot done. It was nice to just go in & do what we wanted since we'd already done most of our must-dos on our previous DHS day.

You're right! The girls did take a cute picture. They were so funny though - the one girl who didn't get her hands right was scared to death of the ride so as much as her friends wanted her to pose, she wasn't letting go of the seat!

Zach got the red one when he rode for the first time since we scared him away from it. Alex got his this time... or maybe it was in November.

We have been very lucky to go back so often! We were going to do both Disney & Uni/IOA but I think we'll just stick with Disney this trip. It's so expensive to do both & I'm sure there will be a day that the kids beg for Universal. For now, they don't seem to interested.

I suspect the girls were probably cheerleaders.

We like the cowboy scene but our favorite ride was in November with the gangster. We were right up front & the gangster was talking with us. He totally freaked Alex out!

Tim's didn't like Sci Fi the last time so I was surprised he liked it this time. Once he doesn't like something, it's hard to get him to change his mind! It must have been a good batch of shrimp pasta!

So glad you are getting a celebration trip!! Southwest flights open up on Monday, October 15th... the morning after I get home late from Disney! The prices for February vacation week weren't great so I'm hoping they don't get any more expensive for April! JetBlue released theirs earlier & had some pretty good prices but I have Southwest points so I'm holding out for them. Plus we love flying out of Manchester. I hope you are able to get good flights!!

Just checked Southwest again & the date is changed... It now says 10/22! Which I'm happy about since I'll be getting home from the girls weekend trip late in 10/14! I might not have been thinking very clearly on the morning of 10/15!

Can you tell me where on the site it shows the date?? I thought it used to be in travel tools. I can't seem to find it anymore.
We have SW points too
What dates are you going? I don't think our vacations are the same this year.
