I'm so glad you made it over to the MK that night. You did a lot and got some beautiful pictures. WOW on the face in the mist at Pirates!

It's fun to look at kids pictures because they really do focus on some interesting things. Zach's next photo tour coming up next.

Great evening! Great update!
Thanks Mary Ellen! We did get a lot done at MK that night, unfortunately too much, which is why we missed the train!

It's so nice when a bus is waiting.

I imagine we will be going over to Magic Kingdom on our first day of the summer trip to check out all of the new stuff. That will be five weeks from right now, by the way.
Fortunately we weren't actually out much in the rain.

Woo hoo for less than 5 weeks to go!!

It probably would have been smart for us to stay for Wishes at that point... oh well!

Love the Jedi Training Academy shots too!

HILARIOUS about the kids meeting and massages! Love it!!!

Sounds like a very nice night at MK, glad it stopped raining too!
Zach had a pretty funny expression in that PP picture! The massages were pretty funny too!

MK was pretty fun!

Also love all your pictures on the ToT and the new Barnstormer. Great angles!
The Jedi Training class was fun. I think Zach wants to do it next time.

I wish the ToT pictures came out better, but you get the idea.

It was a fun way to end our first park day!

I'm glad we went to MK too - the weather didn't end up being too bad.

Thanks - I was having fun with the new camera.

What great great Jedi pictures! I love them!!!!!

Thunderstorms make me crabby in FL, they have been the bane of more than one day for us for sure.

Up next: Do we make it to MK? [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
That is HYSTERICAL! So cute.

I remember the rain when we were at AKL waiting for our ADR at Boma. It was coming down good!!

Glad you got some things done at MK that night.

The lounge was not open 24 hours.
I have the sheet we got when we checked in & here is what it says

Food & Beverage Offerings

Coffee 6:30 am to 7:00 am
Breakfast 7:00 am to 10:30 am
Light Snacks 11:30 am to 4:00 pm
Hors d'oeuvres & beverages 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Desserts & Cordials 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm

So it closed between 10:30 & 11:30 am & 4:00 pm - 5:00pm, 7:00pm to 8:00 pm and it closed for the night after 10:00pm.

Don't know how I missed the start of your TR but I love it so far. The view is fantastic. I love Zach's photo tour, it is fun to see it through the eyes of a kid.

Looks like DHS was a fun time and you were able to get quite a few attractions done. The pictures of the Jedi training are great and it looks like he had fun!

Zach captures some very interesting angles. I like the ones of the boat getting closer and closer.

I really, really, really like that first picture of the slide, with the stairs framed by the boat and the mast!

The pictures of the Friendship boats are really good too!

I love when kids are enthusiastic and excited about taking pictures.

Great photo tour so far! Zach took some interesting pics. I think my favorite is the one of the water fountain! Cute!

Zach's quite the budding photographer! I bet you can make him the cutest scrapbook as a memento and I'm sure he'll love it!

Zack's pictures of the baot getting closer to the dock remind me a lot of the picture I took from the Magic as we arrived at Castaway Cay I took a bunch of pictures as we approched. If you look at the one linked to and then at the next 100 (yes I said 100) that I took over that hour. Castaway Cay approach
