POPPY WAS THE REBEL SPY?!?! Cool!
And I know what scene you're talking about, that's my favorite ending for sure

YAY for the cowboy scene and for Poppy being the Rebel Spy. Despite the rain, it looks like you got a lot done. It has been said here on the DIS that HS is the best park for a rainy day. I was wondering what your thoughts were on that. True ??

I wonder WHY they can't do the cowboy scene more. We have only gotten it once.

I may have to say 3 Judys

First one - she IS wearing green could that be her reflection in the window???

Second One-I agree the hair on the right could be Judy's...or maybe the left and the right is Grams?????

Third One - And well this one is pretty obvious.....

Great updates as always! glad you all had a good time in spite of the weather. We had our own encounter with the dreaded drops of doom today, except it was about 40 degrees F! Brr!

I loved the pictures of the cowboy set. They really do go into such detail. I felt sure you'd hit jackpot with the audition... What a shame. Still, by the sounds of it she did excellently, if only they'd have had a better song.

Love the picture of James talking to his grandpa on the bus.


Great photopass picture of the four of you.

Sorry Marlene didn't make it...but there is always next trip.

I'm nowhere near it in my TR, but we got the cowboy on the GMR this trip too.

Booooo! Where's Maryann when you need her?

Mostly because there are no others.

"We're here to do stuff" - I like that motto!!

Too bad Marlene didn't make it into the show, but that is a fun experience to audition nonetheless!

What a way to start your first day! Debby was on her way and you went to an American Idol audition! Wow. I gotta give huge props to Marlene for auditioning. My friends tried to push me when I went on the Chorus trip (figures) and I just couldn't do it and I had been in theater for years. Takes lots of guts I gotta say. A shame she didn't make it through. to the song choice of Misery (Love Maroon 5!)

I'm so jealous you guys got the Cowboy scene. I'll probably love the Gangster side even more after having watched Pulp Fiction, the first two Godfathers and maybe a few other movies before I go back, but the Cowboy scene just looks so cool! I wonder if they'll be more prone to do it near summertime. And that's so great you all got to ride Star Tours together. "We're here to do stuff!" I'm pretty sure I've said that in WDW before lol And that's awesome Poppy was the Rebel Spy, a real trooper right there!

Hope the rain let up a little bit longer for you guys on this day. Can't wait to read more!

I love the poncho pictures!!! Bummer about idol but something to work towards, I've heard a lot of folks get hung up at that list of songs you have to choose from.

for the cowboy!

and for "doing stuff"!

For some reason I thought you guys got hit more by Debby while at Vero but it doesn't seem like that part was as bad as I'd thought.
