You would definitely be in a position to assess EE, you've ridden it so many times!

It seems to take a long time, and then, boom...it's done.

To be honest, I'd forgotten that I'd taken that picture that way and like you, I noticed James first when I was creating the chapter. I was like "Oh yeah!".

Mine could still be (a lot) better. Not sure if it's my camera equipment or what I'm doing...probably both.

It was a lot of walking for them, but they had a good time. He got over his Space sickness pretty quickly.

That's a good problem to have...free trips coming up! I read about your work adventures when you came back -- crazy and irritating, I know!

I wouldn't put it on the top of the list, but if you've done most other things, then give it a shot.

They were troopers, and we had a good time. I just read where "the 1%" sometimes hire disabled guides to tour with at Disney so that they get preferential treatment at the rides....not us! Gram and Poppy should have used scooters or wheelchairs, but wouldn't hear of it!

I'll be interested to hear how long it takes until one of them asks what that is that other kids are doing. I know what you mean though...so many things to do, and so little time.

Yes, there is an age where they actually seem to get more skittish, very strange.

Yes, she got back this week. She had a good school year. The other kids (and Judy) have a few weeks yet before summer vacation.

No real vacation plans. We have a wedding to go to on "Mahtha's Vinyahd", but it'll just be a weekend trip. I've never been there before, so it'll be interesting to see though! Disney-wise, last year's trip (in this report) took so many points that we need to let 'em build back up a little. We may hit a nearby amusement park or two, like Hershey or Great Adventure. I'd like to take James to a go-kart track near Hershey, I think that'd be fun.

i read about that, too. We've been with an uncle who had a doc's note for heel spurs and all 6 of us got in with him before the fp days - it felt a little strange and i was glad to get the fp instead. I just can't imagine trying to justify that 1% . Kudos to your parents!

i'll be interested to hear how long it takes until one of them asks what that is that other kids are doing. I know what you mean though...so many things to do, and so little time.

i'm hoping they'll be distracted "look! There goes goofy! Let's see if we can catch up to him at jungle cruise!'

I'm glad her year went well.

IKWYM about the points. We'll be doing the same. Sounds like you'll still have fun, no matter what. I am enjoying living where there's a SeaWorld and water park for the first time. We had a little after dinner run at the water park last night - very refreshing!


ETA: Thought I got kicked out and didn't know the first one posted. Oh well.

I don't know about a pre trip report, but a mini TR might well be on the cards, or possibly even a full one! Especially since this time around ill be doing some new things, for me anyway! That reminds me, I should get around to buying a larger memory card. Last trip in 09 I filled even my shoddy camera up with pictures on the penultimate day! It was a hard choice choosing some to get rid of for that last park day I can tell you!

I may call on you for advice in the future, sensei.

Wow!!! Thanks, Glenn!

Well, technically it isn't finished, but I think that dwarf coaster might actually make it worth checking the area out once it is done.

I was just dying for one of them to switch it up with a wave or a hearty "Yo!".
I agree. As impressive as all the animatronics are, you'd think they'd at least be able to program in something a little different just to change it up. Maybe a little chest pound and point to the sky like you see a lot when a basketball player is introduced?

I hope that works! The one I always mention is that James doesn't know about DisneyQuest because he loves videogames so much, we'd never be able to get him out of there. Well, the other night we were watching one of those "Behind the Scenes of WDW" shows and what comes on but DisneyQuest. He didn't say anything, but we'll see what happens next time.

Yep, we'll manage. I'm too busy at work this year to take a 2-week vacation like I did last year so maybe the timing is working out for the best.

Oh, that's gotta stink, deleting pictures. Yes, buy a bigger one. They probably sell them in the camera shops at the parks but are more expensive, I'm sure.
