We try to make it to November at least, and then push it as far as we can, but anytime after we hit November there doesn't have to be any consultation. Either one of us is free to throw the switch if we think it's necessary.

Enjoy Avengers. Still haven't seen it but it's the DMC selection (DW has an account) and she'd probably turn it down, but the mailer disappeared.

the apples at the place we went were HUGE!! Never seen apples so big. From what I hear they also ripened earlier than expected all over the area.

DW was all over pinterest when we got home with plans for our apples. Let's see what comes out of it.

This will be our 3rd fall/winter season with a fireplace. I still haven't mastered the art of getting the fire going and keeping the smoke out of the room. I have to keep the glass closed, and that makes it nice to look at, but doesn't seem to allow us to feel the heat benefit.

maybe this year I'll stumble upon the correct combination of open windows/log stacking/flu opening, and get a nice, enjoyable fire!

you can only get to the very bottom of the tires when the plane is in the air, either before they retract the landing gear, or after they lower it for landing. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

We did them one year, but now, just rides.

i used to let mine nap in afternoon so they could stay up later for party. Don't forget to get your authentic Halloween party stuff while there. We get one pin each year and their not sold outside MNSSHP.

Also though, on pins and needles cause the word on the next round of transfers should be in the next couple of days. New store opens in less then a month, so they gotta staff it to get it ready post-haste. We'll see, the District Manager is going to be making rounds soon.

When we did the Pirate and Princess Party, Amelia just wanted to do the dance parties, not as much in the MNSSHP. We did everything spread out over two parties.

If you are going to do any photos, do the Haunted Mansion ones, they look great.

I got the T-shirt, it was okay, not spectacular. I was more excited to get the Haunted Mansion one with the originial attraction poster on it. I remember we got a couple of pins too. The onr souviner we couldn;t find were the Mickey-ghost popcorn buckets, sold out everywhere. We did get the very last (at the time) Ichobad Crane/Headless horseman bucket after DW begged and pleaded at every stand, till they found one at Sleepy Hollow.

Not sure where this is.

We only stopped for candy once, it was enough candy for the kids.

‘Morning all.

I’ve a general question for those that may have ever dealt with such…

I succeeded in upsetting a long muscle or two in my lower back and I’m looking for ideas on topical and/or over-the-counter type meds that will help get those bad boys to relax a bit.

In fifty years I’ve never once had any back issues, then last night I do nothing more then bend over to pick something up and: zamm! It felt like something just kind of moved or shifted (muscle that is, it’s not near any of the bones). So far I’ve just used ibuprophen and rest and it’s considerably better but there’s still some pain to deal with depending on how I move. Any ideas or similar stories out there y’all might care to share?

Good Morning Gentlemen! Jumping in as well. We always do rides. The lines are short and don't miss the Haunted Mansion all spooked out. We trick or treat on the walk between rides and usually do a couple of the meet/greets. We watch the last villians show, second parade and Hallowishes,of course. Then we ride out the balance in tomorrowland. Have a great time!

When I got up this morning, the kids had made breakfast for dad. I have awesome kids! We had pancakes, toast and.....wait for it......BACON!. It was the precooked bacon, but bacon is bacon. Have a great day guys.

I have used Robaxacet and Tylenol Muscle and Back in the past, both have helped. A heating pad will also help keep things loose. Hope it gets better soon, nothing worse than back pain.

Do you have sliding doors to a deck or yard? We usually open the sliding doors for a few minutes and it gets the fire lit, no smoke and going well in about 3-4 minutes. Windows don't provide enough airflow in our house either. You could also try the Duraflame Stax logs just to get it going. It shows you how to stack them and they start quickly. Good luck.

We picked up a LE pin set last year based ont he haunted mansion. There are 4 pins shaped like coffins with characters on them. I'll try to post a pic when I can. Anyone at the parties that may be willing to buy 2 pins for my kids, it would be appreciated. PM me and I'll send a check and info right away. They have been collecting each year for the last 5 years, but sadly no more parties for us as the oldest is in 7th grade and we won't pull him out of school. Glass half full - We can go without the kids in 8 years once they are both in college.
