Ha. Went to Monsters Inc Laugh Floor twice. First time I was the guy who had buy everyone churros. Second time they told me to get up ad dance. So I did Gangham Style and had the whole theater cracking up. They made me dance for like 5 mins. Then on the way out, everyone was giving me high fives.

Heh.... You are leaving the day we get off our Cruise. I'm thinking you need to extend your trip a couple days.

Not just the Simpsons area. They also are opening up Transformers (officially) in about a month.... and there are already rumors that as soon as they are done with the Simpsons area "Enhancement" [not sure I'd realy call it worthy of the term expansion], That they are heading over ahd starting some work around the Jurassic Park area of IOA since the next film is coming out in a couple years. Among the rumors I heard (and I'm not following them closely) include an enhancement of the Discovery Center, and a possible mine train type coaster.

Pshaw.... Ferry. I've kinda given up on the Monorails. They just get too crowded, stink, potentially break down, and overall just aren't worth the hassle anymore. At least, during times of any sort of crowd.

8 days to FL, 9 days to Disney here....11 people (4 adults and 7 kids from 3-16), 6 have never been to Disney. 1 of those thinks I am going to over-plan our days and kill all the fun (and of course that's the one I married ), the others are willing to trust that I can plan enough to make sure we enjoy it We are doing 2 beach days, surprising the kids with a night in a 2 bedroom at AKL Kidiani for our last night (2 adults and 2 kids aren't staying the night for that, but will hanging out for part of the check-in day to see how cool it is before they start their 16 hour drive back; our 7 are flying). Can't wait!

Hopefully you guys will still happily be planning meets at that time! lol

Josh, so sorry we didn't get to meet up. Through many comedies of error we ended up with 3 dead cell phones, one dead camera and barely any pics. Let me ask you. . .were you in line to get your pic taken with Mickey and Minnie sometime around 11 or so? I kept thinking I was seeing you but my memory of October is sketchy at best. . .lol. I also thought I saw you one other time, but please don't ask me to remember. . .around 4 a.m. I had been up over 24 hours. . .those last two hours were killer. . .being at MK with the sun rising is totally surreal, especially when you know you have been there all night. Awesome. Didn't like the change of the "kiss goodnight". There were a lot of people milling around the castle that missed the "special" one at the train station. Oh well, we had a ball. Wish they would have done a bit more merchandising though. Tee Shirts, cupcakes, special "mocktails", funky hats and glow stuff all nice. . .but ya know?

Your Hubby will get it when its all over. That's a lot of people to corral. For me its 6 max. After that you are on your own to make sure you are with us or not. . .lol.

So we got in around 7:15 p.m. The crowds were horrid but not as bad as they got between 8:15 and 11 p.m. According to some guests we talked to. . .it was a "level 2" capacity crowd with closure during those times. No AP holders, no off site guests being allowed in. Only resort guests. A level three I have not seen before but I think its limited to only Disney Resort guests. . .not even Swalfin guests get in. We actually tried to exit to the beginning of Main Street at one point to retrieve our hoodies (it was getting a bit breezy and chilly). It took nearly 30 minutes to do that. . .and we started at Tomorrowland Terrace. Crazy stuff. About midnight or thereafter the crowd thinned and most attractions were a walk on at that point. We got the special cupcake, a coupon for the special tee (they ran out early), and got to ride some rides. It was a good night. Seeing Mickey and Minnie in Jammies was awesome. . .

Sunrise was the best though. . .surreal.
