Great pictures!! We enjoy the GMR. It has a wonderful accessible ride vehicle. I am happy you finally got to see the cowboy side. Can't wait to read more.

I love that you always take pictures from the airplane. I'm too afraid to fly so that's the only way I can see what it looks like from there!

Glad to see you. It does need updating. They should put newer classics in there and some Pixar stuff. Or some Disney classics.
You should fly and see if you like it. You are close to Disney the flight shouldn't be too long. The worst is take off but after that it is fine.

We are not so lucky. just glad we finally got it.
Thanks. It is a work in progress on learning to take pics in there.

It was a good rest of the trip. Hope you all had a magical trip.

Always nice to see fellow NYer's following along.
Those 50 days are going to fly till about 5 then drag. It is how it always goes.
We were going at the end of May but canceled as I have another place I am going now. I think December is our next trip.

I'm in! A little late, but definitely in for this one. No pictures right now, so I think I'll read later today. Looking forward to it!

Update 5: Yo Ho, Yo No! What is this?

After our visit to the movies we walked a little bit. Shall we start our tour.


Vinny wanted a pic in the car.


We did go into Writers Stop but I could not find anything I wanted in there so we left in search of something.


I love Good Morning America. Such a fun cast.

Next we saw the Streets of NY.


As you can see in the next pic there were no crowds here.


I would use them. LOL




This is not correct but anyway.


Looking back at where we were.




I love this sign. It just sounds so New Jersey. LOL. I think I have lost my NJ accent.


All of this walking around made us thirsty. LOL. Vinny suggested we have a drink. Who am I to argue.


I of course had to have a Margarita.
Grand Margarita - with Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila and Grand Marnier blended on the rocks $9.75


Vinny had a Pinot Grigio. I have no pic of his wine.
Wine by the Glass $6.95

The amount was $17.79

I would say by the time stamps we sat there for ½ hour just drinking and people watching. After we finished we moved on.


The Army men were just coming out.


Then I looked over and saw the Jack Sparrow show was getting ready to start.


Basically you go in and they tell you the story of Jack Sparrow. I will just say we both hated it and when we walked out we were asking why we did it. You stand the entire time which is actually short. The wait to get inside is longer than the show.

Here are some of the pics I took.








Then Jack Sparrow makes an appearance.




Then it is over. A waste of time in my opinion.


I think this is a good place to stop.

Up next,

I buy something and dinner.

Thanks for the heads up on this attraction. My whole crew would be tight if we had to stand through this.

Thanks for the heads up regarding Jack Sparrow, the Narnia exhibit was a waste of time also. I know I have a New Yawker accent

Thanks for the heads up on that. I agree, Narnia exhibit wasn't worth the time either.

Cool pictures from the Jack Sparrow attraction. Too bad it was a bust. I might check it out anyway.

All of your pictures look great. It looks like an awesome day and is it wrong that I really want that margarita at 10:30am?

Okay. So it didn't take me long to get caught up.

We ended up doing TGMR as well even though it bores me. But I hadn't done it in 4 years so it was kind of fun doing it again. And of course we got the gangster! I think I've had the cowboy once. And The Wizard of Oz part is my favorite too!

I'm kind of glad you said Jack Sparrow was a waste of time. We were going to try to do it, but the wait was too long and we needed to make American Idol Experience. Oh well.

That is good.
When we get to the the Wizard of Oz part I want to get out and go down the yellow brick road on foot.
AI is a better choice, more entertaining.
