We can't wait to see the New Fantasyland! Caitlin's all time favorite is Beauty and the Beast so she is super excited! My favorite is the Little Mermaid so I can't wait to see the ride!

Chocolate covered strawberries are my guilty favorite at Disney!

Is it just Soarin' and the circle rides that get your motion sickness going?
Can you do the simulators like Star Tours or Mission:Space and the "jerky" ones like Dinosaur?

As for the post, looks like a great morning!
It's so much nicer at opening before the crowds descend.
Peaceful, quiet, and happy - the way Disney World should be!

I can do Dinosaur and BTMRR without any issues. I have never tried Star Tours or Mission Space though.

I agree! I hate crowds so arriving at or near rope drop is always a must for us!

I was at the park on Saturday morning and got to ride the Voyage of the Little Mermaid for this first time. I loved it! The wait was about 30 minutes, but gave me plenty of time to soak in all the little details.

I really think you will enjoy it

Lucky you! I've been reading that the parks are pretty crowded right now so 30 minutes wasn't too bad. Thanks for sharing! We can't wait to see for ourselves

Never assume. You know what they say, "Never assume, because it makes the Disboards censor the rest of the quote."

And yet, for me.... That makes me think of cold. You see there's a place in Canada called Resolute and it's one of our most northerly communities (2nd farthest actually). The average yearly temperature there is 2 degrees F. (Thanks wiki.)

But if you hadn't had an ADR, it would've been packed and Dale would've been annoyed with you for not making one.

So... there ya go.

This one I can see. Even though it's the best ride in all four parks.

Just sayin'

I never use that term "backside" to refer to, umm.... assume you know what I mean... So it was years before I got what everyone thought was so funny about that.

I never understood why the one that spins is called orange and the non-spinning one is green. Shouldn't the spinning one be green? Since that's how you're going to feel afterwards?

Good pick! But it looks like just about anything in there would be a good pick.

I love this view! So pretty!

Breakfast looks amazing! I really want to eat at Olivia's in June and hope we have time to make it there.

You guys got a lot done in only a couple hours.

Yeah for a safe flight for Caitlin and her grandpa! Will she be doing the next update. I know she wasn't feeling well and I'm curious as to how all that turned out.

Denny and I will be eating at Be Our Guest in June! Looking forward to it.

I didn't realize you could walk from CR to MK. So many things to learn all the time. lol That's why I love TRs!!

That strawberry looked delicious.

BRRR! And we think Michigan is cold!

Thank you for the reassurance

Mmmmm yummy!

Nope just a slow fall morning. Ya gotta love low crowds!
