The best part about this is that DS, being under 3, didn’t need an FP, so he got to ride twice.

Well... not since I was young enough to want to go and play all the games. So I can't say that I recall how good or bad the pizza was.

I'll defend him. He tolerates her horse showing addiction and attends shows quite often during the summer, so I'd say she is still in debt to him.

You can't help but think of some of the other people on the Disboards that really love or hate a certain attraction when you're on it. And Mark has become one with ToT in my thought process.

Disney really did help matters in DHS by letting guests trickle in. Anyone who's been there at 9 o'clock when all the thousands of guests visiting that park try to rush to TSMM knows it's a madhouse. It's nice to now be able to walk to the ride and not have to wait long for a FP.


Starring Rolls has some great cupcakes, the peanut butter one is the best, in my opinion. But man, pizza on top of a cupcake on top of a cinnamon roll....then 2 rides on Star Tours. Iron stomach!


The pod race scene must be like the go-to sequence, because I have yet to ride Star Tours without getting it, either. I remember when I first heard that Star Tours was being refurbed, I was excited, because I was hoping the pod race scene would be eliminated entirely. And since then all 6 or 7 of my rides have landed me there.
That is really cool that you managed to get Hoth the second time around, though. What're the odds?

I really enjoyed this update Andy....it sounds like you guys had a great time at DHS.

Rock 'n' Rollercoaster is my favorite too. I love that ride. And yes, for some reason I always think of Mark whenever I read someone's report about ToT.

I really need to try something from Starring Rolls sometime.

I remember back when my kids were smaller and the oldest made out like a bandit, going on rides twice as we did the kid-swap thing.

I'm glad you BiL enjoyed Star Tours and that you got to see some different scenes. The refurb really improved that ride.

And the sooner you actually pull the trigger and prove to them that it will happen…
The sooner they’ll stop trying to stick a toe over that line.

Just:


Back in the days of VHS (lord I’m old), there was a re-edited version of the first film floating around where Jar Jar’s voice was altered into a “Gungan Language” and subtitles added. Most of his poorly conceived slapstick antics were eradicated as well. The result was a character that was more like Yoda then Mr. Bean. Never seen it, but I like to.

It is definitely much better than the mad dash it used to be. Although, I admit, I was skeptical of the change at first.

I swear I was starting to wonder if they ever ran another scene for the middle sequence. I always seem to get a decent variety for the first part, the end and the hologram, but I kept getting stuck with the pod races!!!

As much fun as Toy Story is, that little corner of Sunset Blvd is still a number one priority for me in that park. I just can't not think of Mark on ToT anymore after all the joking about it.

Yeah, it can be used very advantageously, if you know how to work around the system.

Definitely. Easily one of the best refurbs they've ever done!

Yes, you're old, and I don't think I've ever even seen any of the prequels on VHS.

Sounds like y'all were having a really great day @ DHS!

First of all....that cinnamon roll looks sooooo delicious! I would love to have one of those for breakfast but I'm pretty sure that would blow my diet.....for the rest of the week.

So sorry you Sister was feeling bad but that's good that your BIL was having fun with you on the thrill rides and Star Tours. Speaking of which, I would LOVE to get the Hoth scene! We always get that stupid podracer scene as well.

Pizza Planet is always a for my family. I know people complain about it, but we enjoy our food.

And for getting to ride TSMM a few times!! Although, that is a little crazy about the mom & daughters. Wow.

Always! Despite not having an abundance of quality attractions, the few that I really like there some of my favorites anywhere on property!

It is Disney World. That statement makes absolutely no logical sense.

It's mass produced pizza and it does the trick... what else is there to say about it?

Definitely great to get a couple of rides in on that one. The family fighting in line at Disney World has kind of become one of those things I expect. People are going to get on each others' nerves on vacation, and that's just the way it is.

But if the park has been open for maybe 10 minutes and you're already ready to kill each other...

Good gravy it took me like 5 times trying to get through you update, every time I tried, I got distracted!


That cinnamon roll looks amazing... We love Star Tours, can't wait to give it another spin when we get down there!!!!

Pizza Planet is on the list for us to do, we will see if it happens though. By the end of the week I normally am very over food
