Well we have been back for a week but could not face looking on the forums as now having the post disney blues

Had an amazing time and the DH is now a disney convert and can't wait to go back.

I promise to do a trip report over the next few weeks.

Highs of the holiday are.

Getting upgraded to a river view room in POFQ in building 2 great location.
Photo pass plus
The hoop dee doo revue getting a front and centre seat and jake getting dragged on stage
MNSSHP the fireworks alone are worth the money.
Meeting maleficent
Amazing luck with the weather.
Butterbeer.
Small crowds
and too many more to mention here but will be in my TR.

Lows
Just general queue jumping people.
Busch Gardens.

Now to sort out our photo pass plus photos

Have a good weekend

Sarah x

Photo pass plus was amazing the photographers seem to go to town with extra shots and the magic shots if they see you have photo pass plus.

Plus getting the ride photos was great we got so many we started inventing silly poses

We noticed this on our trip in May too. First time I've noticed it but like you it's something I really can't stand.

line jumpers in WDW? the only time i've encountered line jumping at WDW has been foreigners, not americans.

well, except for in parade type situations - there it happens all the time...
you stake out a spot and at the last second someone comes along and thinks they can just squeeze in front of you (between you and the rope)...

but in lines for rides, i've only experienced it with europeans/south americans - never with americans.....

i will be really irritated if it happens..
that's what turned me off to disneyland paris - i just couldn't deal with all the line jumping...

I looked at the forecast before we went and all it said was thunderstorms and showers but then if you look at it it will say something like 40% chance.

we had a down pour for 2 hours in the afternoon on our fist day then it didn't rain for almost 2 weeks then we got a bit of rain for the last week but nothing too bad.

Dont stress over the forecast it looks worse than it is

The ride ops were to busy talking about there drunken antics the previous night to actually bother to see if we are strapped in on not.

Also there was a massive storm and there was no info from anyone about what was going on they more or less shut the park but didn't bother to inform anyone.

Also didn't like the way they seem to treat the animals there after a particular conversation with the cheetah keeper.

Its such a shame as the rides are amazing Just the general feel of the whole place was not nice.
