You two got quite a few things accomplished that morning! I sure hope that the teenager simply fainted and wasn't having a seizure. As the wife of a husband who suffers from seizures, I can attest that seizures are certainly not something that you get used to and I freak out every time.

How did you and Cynthia stay so calm looking when plummeting down down down in the Tower of Terror elevator? I'm always hanging onto John like a monkey and screaming like crazy.

How scary with the mom and the teenaged girl. I guess for timing having whatever happened to her is better in line before the ride rather than further into the queue, or actually on the ride.

I deal a lot with senior and Special needs at work and it seems like they are always testing our Emergency Action Plan. . Once thing Disney does well is people and responding to them, whether moving them around or taking care of them in various situations.


Looking forward to hearing about the Boardwalk part of your stay. I will be there myself soon enough.

We had a great morning.

I really don't know what happened with that young girl. It will be interesting to see Cynthia's take on it. It definitely wasn't a grand map seizure, but she did shake enough to put that in the differential. Hopefully just overly anxious and maybe not breakfast. Also - who knows - she could have been a diabetic and gotten too much insulin. One never knows.

I scream on roller coasters for the fun of it, but on ToT I try to put my brave face on hoping it will actually make me braver.

So much better than it happened right at the entrance to the inside queue. It reminded me of the girl I heard about years ago who was not feeling well before the ride. After wards she went out and it was determined that she had a ruptured cerebral aneurysm. Surely no fault of the ride, but it certainly couldn't have helped matters.

They are dealing with so many guests and most of them appear well. However, we all know that that is not necessarily the case. They do a great job with responding to emergencies.

Lucky you!!!!! Are you going to take the tour if they still have it? If they still have it in June I will be tempted to take it myself. It sounds so cool.

We loved, LOVED, L O V E D the Boardwalk. Our view was A-mazing!

Thanks for sharing the bonus pictures of Tracy. I'm sure you must have been really pleased to discover them!

Great morning at Hollywood Studios. Do you know approx when your FP time for TSM came due? And the times were out into the evening by then? Sheesh!

Great pictures of the ToT queue and inside the elevator. I see something new all the time too. In your pictures, I have never seen the display of flags on the bureau next to the Concierge Desk. I think I must always be looking (or photographing) the desk. I actually find I am always moving pretty quickly through that part.

That is scary about the teenage girl. I'm glad to hear help came quickly. I'm sure the folks at Disney are very (perhaps overly) cautious and she got top-notch help.

Sounds like a great morning. I love all the pics of ToT. I may be too chicken to ride but I love seeing pics of it

Looking forward to seeing your pics of BWV and the Epcot resort area

Eveything about that ride from the sights to the sounds just set the tone perfectly. And that music is a big part of it.

I'd think that the sugar should help you in TSM. I mean it is about speed, not accuracy.

That's ok. The trees make it hard to get a good picture from that direction anyway.

She was holding her young teenage daughter who looked OK, but just a little unsteady. She tried to walk her daughter outside and from I could see /remember, she had her daughter sit down and then her daughter started to experience some type of a seizure. Either that or she fainted, but there appeared to be some shaking involved. It was pretty hard to see what was going on, but help arrived quickly in the form of a CM who called for medical help.
Hope she was ok. That would definitely be unnerving, especially in line for that ride!

Well, you could always wash it down with some Beverly next time.

I was. I completely forgot that we were in the same pp share back in 2010. I wish I had discovered that sooner because I would have used the character photos in her video.

It looks like we were in line at 11:15, but our FPs may have come due before that. I wish I could remember but I know I didn't look at a clock once during the morning. Hopefully Cynthia can check her time stamp and figure it out.

There is always something new I see as well. It's also cool to know that they make subtle changes every so often. But you're right - you do move through pretty quickly and its hard to take it all in.

My whole memory of the event seems somewhat surreal. But I do know tht she got help pretty quickly.

I'll have to ask Claire, but she took the chicken exit the 2nd time we rode it and she went back stage with a CM to meet us later. She said she used a different elevator and went through some rooms. Maybe she was int the sunset room!

Speaking of casual dressing for Signatures... I can completely understand the parks but we were at Jiko and Citricos and noticed the shorts and t-shirts thing going on. I suppose I shouldn't be so quick to judge but I do admit that my first thought wasn't 'oh, maybe they don't have their luggage yet and had to wear shorts' versus 'what the heck?'

Yay for BW! I love all the Epcot resorts.
He was sweet, frazzled and busy but super sweet. Possibility on the maybe they don't have their luggage but I guess for me, if that were the case, I'd be at the regular bar, or the pool bar. Same thing at Jiko, why not be up at Victoria Falls?

You had a great ending to the night at MK. I'm glad it worked out like it did for the parade.

Nice opportunity to see CoP. I think we took the boys on our first trip together in 2004, but haven't been back since.
One of these days you should try a siggie, maybe a date night at some point?

Sounds like a pretty nice meal. I'm never in the mood to do a fancy restaurant while in Disney. Maybe some day DH and I will do something romantic but for now we're still too silly.
Great timing walking in on the parade! Great photos from you both also. Love the Photopass pics!
Date nights are awfully fun, if you can do one at a siggie I highly recommend it. We've not managed it yet but hopefully this next trip.

Pan-seared Florida Black Grouper - Pappardelle pasta, palacios chorizo, taggiasca olives, marinated sun dried tomatoes, white wine and aglio e olio $38.00

means...

White fish, pasta (Portuguese pork sausage which has dried smoked red peppers in it, sun dried tomatoes, white wine, garlic and olive oil.

Basically a boring white fish that they tried to add lots of stuff to, to make it interesting.



This looks like grouper with, squid ink linguine, clams, mussels, shrimp, chorizo, sun dried tomatoes, white wine, garlic and olive oil. At least I think I see some chorizo in the picture. May also have tomatoes.

I will say the linguine and the broth were by far the best part. I am fairly positive I soaked up the rest of my broth with bread.

Wow, the original Tiki Room AND CoP in the same trip!!!
Yeah, cuz we are short on pictures in front of the castle and we didn't get anymore for the rest of the trip



I had a list of must do's and wants and it usually includes classics I've not made it to. On this trip I did really well in the MK, ok at DHS and bombed everywhere else.

I have to admit, it isn't the best ride to experience at the end of the day. I love it and it can just about lull me to sleep when it is late and I'm tired. I'm glad you got to see it and enjoyed it.
Sad isn't it? All that I still haven't done? Need more trips.

I was kind of bummed. I'd had the same experience when I bought a whole one for myself, and couldn't finish it. I'd hoped splitting it would do the trick. It is good....but really I need 1/4 or less of it to avoid a sugar coma.

And with my tennis elbow to boot! Probably was all the sugar and caffeine, I'm sure that had a lot to do with the fact I was craving protein in a major way by the time we finally got to lunch.

I really couldn't see well enough to have a feeling at all for what was going on with the girl but mom was definitely shaken. I know I have fainted before in the heat, several times as a tween/teen and it was always low sugar. I'd just go down though, freak my mom out. I really hope she was ok and was happy to see it handled very quickly, or if not handled at least getting the right kind of atttention.

Clearly I was focused on my hat

I had that exact same thought, that they really were at a good access point both for them to get out of the crowd and for help to get to them.

for Boardwalk!

Great update! Love all your photos of ToT and DHS. Now the incident with the girl sounds pretty scary.



If I am not completely mistaken this is a toothbrush holder. I know I had it in my hands in Paris and am pretty sure it is.

The Toy Story Mania mad dash is necessary, predictable or not!

Your ToT pictures are all great!

Ugh, that must have been a scary thing to witness. When I was a senior in high school I witnessed one of my best friends having a seizure and it was one of the scariest moments of my life. She was diagnosed with epilepsy. BUT, another time my mother started shaking a little bit and we thought she might have had a seizure too (which was also incredibly scary) but it turned out she had a reaction to some new medication she was taking and had fainted. One thing I will say is that the aftermath of the two situations was completely different. My friend was extremely out of it and answered every question that the paramedics asked her with her name. My mom, however, just wondered why we were freaking out. She didn't remember the incident, but everything else was completely fine. SO, all that to say, I hope the girl was just fainting. Hopefully everything turned out okay for her and her mom!

Hmmmmm......I wonder. I think I would like to go down the chicken exit once just to see what it's like. The first time I rode ToT two boys went out that way and left their mom on the ride. That woman screamed the entire time. I was sure she was going to completely freak out. It was crazy.

Hey - no judgement here. You're lucky you can wear a cap and look so cute it in. I look ridiculous.

I always look disgusted - but in reality it's my fear of the ride. I have never completely settled into that ride. It really used to scare the heck out of me before the dumbed it down a bit.

And with my tennis elbow to boot! Probably was all the sugar and caffeine, I'm sure that had a lot to do with the fact I was craving protein in a major way by the time we finally got to lunch.
OMG - me too! That is what I remember most about walking over to B&C and being told there was a 45 minute wait. I remember thinking...no way!!!!!!!!

I really hope she was ok and was happy to see it handled very quickly, or if not handled at least getting the right kind of atttention.

Clearly I was focused on my hat




I had that exact same thought, that they really were at a good access point both for them to get out of the crowd and for help to get to them.
I would like to think she just fainted, but who knows. I guess if she had a pre-existing medical condition the mom wouldn't have freaked so much.

If I am not completely mistaken this is a toothbrush holder. I know I had it in my hands in Paris and am pretty sure it is.
I think you're right! That is so cute. Now I really want one!!!!!!

One thing I will say is that the aftermath of the two situations was completely different. My friend was extremely out of it and answered every question that the paramedics asked her with her name. My mom, however, just wondered why we were freaking out. She didn't remember the incident, but everything else was completely fine. SO, all that to say, I hope the girl was just fainting. Hopefully everything turned out okay for her and her mom!
You're right - those are two different scenarios. Now that I replay it in my mind I'm pretty sure she just fainted. Because I think we was awake again by the time we moved out of that spot.

OMG - that must have been so scary for your mom. I can't imagine.

I love the ToT queue!! Wouldn't it be awesome to have gardens like the outside? I will however pass on the dustiness of the inside!
