Have not heard anything from the monkeys mouth. Heard rumors or it being gone and then being relocated. I perfer just not to think of not being able to see that wonderful show anymore. I will make sure I hit every trip and then we shall see.

Although with the dispute between James Cameron and the Imagineers, Avatarland may not happen, which will (hopefully!) save the Tumble Monkey's!
I am hoping they are saved either way. nahnahnah I am not listening at them going away for ever

Those birds are nostalgic for me.
I think those pirates have a stalemate.

I really enjoyed the Plaza this time. Simple good food

Can't go wrong with the cinnamon bun the size of your head.

I was going for the ID. I did pull out the phone to show him since I always did get a room number so it was odd. Apparently he thought so too.

Puddy is a great time check picture for me. From Entering to at gate.

I might be imagining things but I thought I had read that the board was set up as a stale mate- neither dead skeleton could win.

I just love the whole area. The only minus for me at the Boardwalk is no quick service inside the resort itself. When the kids were younger that was really an issue for us. Now not so much. Need to book a BWV stay.

While waiting for the Soarin FP to ripen a spin on Living with the land is in order.

Hidden Mickey Time






Flowers and Fruit.







I may have needed a miracle to get to rope drop.



Hey look more than just one!!!





HM





Time for the Soarin’ FP. With TT closed I was just not running around.



Trying to get the Mickey Ears



After a second flight over California it was time to go under the sea





No line so I could really take my time.







As usual, this is probably the only shot I got



MEMOM don’t look















A demonstration was going on. Even though I am around water all the time I actually have a slight issue with SCUBA equipment. I am NOT SUPPOSE to be able to breathe underwater so I really have a hard time relaxing. As a result I hyperventilate a bit.

Next time: Finish up that side of EPCOT. You know what that leaves.....

Thanks for the warning. I scrolled through very quickly, as I saw the top of the tank. I am currently taking long, deep breaths to stay in control.

I was listening to Soarin' yesterday. I love the ride itself, but I also love the music to it. It just gives me the sense of glding along over the coast. Makes me smile.

So, explain - did you have something happen scuba diving or is this just a phobia? Scuba diving has actually never really appealed to me because I have a fear of getting lost or getting stuck and running out of air.

Love all the hidden Mickeys (see, I read BEFORE work today).

Have fun in Disneyland!

I am only about a third of the way through your trip report...I was curious about your Disname... which you explained... (If your son starts swimming with a team in the summer and the fall into the winter...and all of that do you get to be an honorary Poolrat...or Poolrat Mom...? Anyhow...

I did read about your trip down and the billboards so I probably should have been warned...

but nothing could have prepared me for this:

depth than I would ever want

Dr. V.

OK... I was reading your TR... and drinking coffee ... (while waiting for the plumber to come... Hmmm...wonder when that will be...)

but

I should not have been reading and drinkng...

because

I had to clean up my keyboard after I choked out a rather larger gulp of coffee after seeing Dr. V...

OMG... Seriously?

So I'm going to put the cup down and go back to reading...

& I really hope your trip isn't horrible although it is an intriguing name...

(love Beach Club... staying there soon....)


Ok back to the program...

I love all of the pictures you got in the Nemo queue. I think it's so well done, and pretty under-rated as queues go.

Can't wait to hear what happened next!

Hmmm... Still waiting for the plumber ... supposed to be here at 8 now 9.30...

Anyhow... so far your trip is very un horrible...

I loved your check in at Beach Club... I get that happy feeling too...

Loved your MK pictures... can't wait to see the new Dumbo...

I think it was quite funny that you thought at least the drunks doing shots were happy drunks... that is so true... a happy drunk is much better than the alternative...

Cute little Brave play area... I personally loved that movie... the brothers were so awesome in it... I happened to love Merida too because honestly... she's the only princess with truly curly hair... (the rest are straight naturally or have had a straightening process done...) Merida... now that's some serious curly hair... and red to boot...

Enjoying your tr... but maybe I should put the coffee down when I read it...

Nice job on the Hidden Mickeys!

TT being closed definitely made Epcot different, huh? But even with that, you can't possibly be considering going THERE next...can you?

Don't do it!

I was behind a couple of updates but I caught up using your handy dandy links.

Love the pics in the new Fantasyland, too bad you can't see much in the air on the new Dumbo, maybe when it is complete there might be something to see?

I don't blame you for getting caught up in Illuminations, I love that show, and pics I take never turn out so I have given up on taking any and just enjoy the show.

LOL at your Japanese Spaceship Earth!

I have been SCUBA diving before in St Thomas, and I did enjoy it at first but I got messed up with the procedures to get the water out of my mask and I ended up panicking and almost drowning myself. That was scary, the instructor had to help me to more shallow water. I don't think I will be doing that again anytime soon...
