Looks like a pretty great day at DHS, despite the rain. And I'm with Stringbean: you need those Muppets DVDs! Younger generations should not be robbed of the joy of The Muppet Show!

Fun afternoon despite Debby, those are some happy looking poncho folks, and nice that you got a little commando time with the kids later in the day. The rebel spy twice, I am thinking the buttons must have something to do with it but how fun is that! I want to go on it over and over and over next trip. I'm sure it won't happen, it will be ugly ugly crowds but I can dream, right?

I am curious, the villa's really only have seating for dining for the 1B portion of a 2B. How did you manage that at dinner time? I've just realized that big family meals might be a challenge when we are maxing out room occupancy and have others from other rooms that will be joining us.

1 Judy !?!?

It's funny that you mentioned the hat over the poncho because that was the first thing I noticed!

I think your parents managed to do quite a lot at DHS despite the rain. We had rain for part of the day when we were there in May and honestly I was quite miserable. So kudos to you!

I hope the weather improved (I don't remember anything about Debby now)

How did Gram and Poppy like TSM?

Fun update, Glenn. So great that you got to ride on Star Tours so many times in a row. Sorry James wouldn't do TOT with you guys. I love the redneck photo on Rock & Roll.

Glad your parents enjoyed Muppets; we missed it in September and December...we need to rectify that.

OK. This totally hit home with me. We LOVED the Brady Bunch growing up and every time we had pork chops and applesauce - which was a lot because it was cheap and easy for mom to cook, I suppose - we would sit around the table saying that during dinner. Everyone would be all quiet and eating then one of us would randomly blurt out ..."Porkchops and Applesause" just like Peter did and we would all dissolve into giggles. Ah, a good childhood memory.

Sadly, I don't have very many. But that was a good one I can hold onto. Thanks Glenn.

They had them in a freezer case so you could buy them for home. We got them for the holidays while DS was here. We all loved them! They even had a "full meal deal" for 9.99 with meatballs, sauce and mashed potatoes.

Sorry - look what happens when you step away!


I love the hat and poncho look! Maybe it will hit the runways for Spring.

I'm surprised the lines were short for ST - So cool you got to ride it 3 times! i could only wish it would be like that this Summer for DGS, 8.

Seems like still a very successful day at DHS despite all the rain. It reminded me that I only ever experienced two really rainy days at WDW - and both were spent at DHS. Just a coincidence, but I think that DHS actually is a pretty good bad weather park as most attractions are indoor with fully enclosed queues. And they are all relatively close together.

Seems like you had a lot of fun - especially on Star Tours. I really like the new version as well - even though Katharina and I ended up with mostly identical rides every time we went on it. I have heard somewhere that the rebel spy is chosen from a few specific seats, so it depends on where you sit. Not sure if that is correct though.

We had fastpasses, so we skipped going past Mr. P anyway. It was kind of funny because I was towards the back of our group and just following and then all of a sudden realized that we were at a different loading area....which is to say I'm not sure how I got there!! I know we didn't go down the long hallway that winds back around, and it would make sense that a handicap entrance wouldn't have stairs, so yes, maybe they peeled us off right before the steps.

They're also some of the older rides, so people may opt for the newer ones. They were good choices for my parents though.

I was worried for a little while there. I couldn't wait to get back and see if some time on the charger would take care of it. I hoped it would, but wasn't sure what my chances were.

Yes, I'm shocked! And yes, I need to look into getting some DVD's. How many seasons were there, and are they all on DVD?

I knew you'd approve of our choice to go to Muppet 3D!

I know I looked at the battery level before it died and everything looked okay...but now I know better.

That RnRC picture actually turned out better than the one I took with my good camera on our last trip. I remember that I had to doctor that one up quite a bit on Photobucket to be able to see our expressions. This one, I didn't touch.

A little bit of everything, and all despite the rain.

Yeah, I think she was on to something with her "button hypothesis".

I meant to write in that chapter that 3 times in a row was enough, queasyness-wise. I didn't feel any queasyness after one ride, at all, but I was ready for that third one to be over, if you know what I mean. I don't think I could've handled a 4th one.

Hmmm, I'm trying to remember. It seems like we got everyone around it at least once, maybe with some seats at the end, but I don't even know what chairs we would've brought in....maybe a desk chair? I think most of the time a kid or two sat on the barstools at the counter. For breakfasts, we pretty much ate in shifts...not by design, but just that people ate when they got ready, which was at slightly different times.

I was glad to ride Star Tours a couple of times to see some of the different scenes.

James'll ride ToT one of these days, and realize that it wasn't all that bad, but I'm okay with him doing it in his own time. For now.

Ahh, that's great...I'm glad it brought back some good memories for you! Yeah, I watched a lot of tv, (too much, but I wouldn't have it any other way), growing up too. Having pork chops and applesauce on the menu actually went back to the planning stages....Judy and I sat down to come up with some meal ideas so that we could build a grocery list, and we thought that pork chops with some shake 'n bake might be an easy thing to make in the suite. Then she said, "well, what should we have with them?" And all I could think of was...."pork chopsch and appleshaush".
