Really impressive!! Going to your second park of the day after driving all that way. You go girl!! Love the AK pics btw. The sunset shot is beautiful! Also, I think you are brave driving around WDW. I think it's very confusing. Finally figured out to stop trying to figure it out and just follow the signs.

I didn't get the park right, didn't recognize that sign. But I did get the first ride right!

Ha! I've never noticed those pole-dancing dinosaurs before!

Nice sunset.

Great pictures! The sunset is really pretty!

BTW - If you think not taking ride pictures makes this a horrible trip, sorry, not gonna buy it. Not that I want anything bad to happen to you, but this TR is not quite living up to the title!

I'm guessing Epcot next - no particular reason. Maybe you'd like a drink?

Maybe they are related??

It was good and I have it booked again for Oct. The only thing stopping me would be a great AP rate for POP

It was close but thankfully all bump up were avoided.

Can't wait to read more.
I can't stay away - I could hear the park calling.... all the way across property.

I can forgive the forgotten food and ride photos since you got the pole dancing dinos.
I am glad I am forgiven. I must have a million shot of the "back " of the tree, several from every trip.

Dancing dinos are for Rosie ... who is MIA.

The street party was nice and a great change of pace. It was 6:20 when I got there. Stayed until after closing. Last hour is always a nice quiet time.

I get quite a few rears too. I only get lucky with the fronts.

See eandesmom's post - she has the hint.

Glad you are enjoying them. Having the sports setting and multiple shot capability really increases my chances of getting a halfwawy decent shot.

While I don't really mind Disney Transportation, I really liked driving. Even though I had about 40 minutes I think I made the most of it.

hmmn.
I will say you are right- now to which one???

OK, seriously, how could you forget the redneck ride photos? Is that possible? See what happens when you drive 8 hours. You get forgetful.

As far as dinner - I am going to guess WPE WITHOUT the peas!
See I said Horrible... Ride photos, Food I was not
on the ball.
Cynthia's got it....narrowed down.

I usually make a point of opening one park and then closing another. Usually..

I always thought it would be confusing too. But everything is really well marked and if you have a general layout of the property you are good. If you see the backside of an arch well then turn around.

Nice sunset.
You help me spot Judys and well I can help you spot and identify signs and dancing dinos.
Primeval Whirl ( hurl) have the pole dancing dinos at the entrance facing Dinosaur.

Uh Oh - Maybe my definition of horrible is different. Still plenty of time for horrible to come on board.

I will say a drink was had but Cynthia is closer.

Funny how we can "find" ourselves again after divorce? Life is too short to be unhappy.
