That will help! you can just pop over there! I saw it last two trips ago. I think I normall do it about once every other trip. Truth be told I would be happy if they took out Fantasmic and replaced it with something else.

Hey Rachel,
Sorry to hear some inconsiderate (i'm being polite) people ruined your tot experience. We've had that sort of thing happen too. When we get next to a large group we try & see what line/que they're goin to and make sure we don't end up with them, even if it means getting out of the que or letting others go ahead of us. You did good not losing your cool, maybe when they grow up & have to pay for things theselves they'll understand. We have reservations NEXT SUNDAY at the Brown Derby, did you notice anything else that looked worth trying from the menu? Thanks.

Hollywood Studios Night of Fun Part 2


On the way to TSM I took a couple of pictures.

I like this one!





When we got to TSM the wait was 30 minutes.



There was no one in line!!! I loved it sooo much! I have never seen the line like this. Such a beautiful sight.







Mr Potato Head! This line is one of my favorite lines!



Luxo ball! I love trying to find this ball in all of the pixar movies. We just watched Monsters Inc and it is very noticeable in that movie.







Emme put on her glasses early and was so excited because she loves this ride but Patty and her have only been on it once!





I don't think I did very well this round. I think I only got like 120-140K.

When we got out of the ride it was 9:53 and the park closed at 10pm. We walked across the road and saw Buzz and Woody meeting and the CM ushered us in and said last chance to see them! That was cool because I didn't think they would let you in that early to park closing.

Emme and Baby Tinkerbell!



There was a little girl in front of us who all of a sudden said she had to pee really bad, she was probably about 2. They were almost at the front of the line so they just waited until they met Buzz and Woody. The mom said this was their 3rd time in the Buzz and Woody line when she had to pee! The first two times they left. I thought that was funny! She must have an aversion to lines

I met Buzz and Woody but don't really remember our interaction!



Emme was so cute with them!









She looks like a ham in this picture!





Patty said she does this shoulder move when she is nervous, so she must have been nervous.



When Emme left she kept blowing Woody kisses, it was the cutest thing ever!!

After this it was time to leave the park but first I had a little upgrading to do! Luckily guest relations was open so I upgraded to an annual pass. At first she said I had to upgrade to a premium pass because I had water park tickets so I freaked out a little. But I told her I haven't used them yet and asked her to bridge the price. The total I owed was $55 which is what I calculated, so it was all good!!!

I was sooo flippin excited!!! I could not believe I actually had an annual pass.

I made Patty take a picture of me with my new pass. I picked Minnie!



This annual pass is proving to be bad because I am constantly looking for trips. I am trying to get Corey to go in July but it probably isn't a good idea because his job (entire department) was eliminated so he has to find a new job. I am pretty sad but he didn't make too much money so hopefully we can find him a better job. He gets paid until end of July.

On our way back to our room I took a picture of the cool chair out of our room. I think it was supposed to be look like it was from Alice in Wonderland.



When we were back at the room Patty went to the gas station to gt some snacks for Emme. Emme was rough housing on the bed and fell into my knee. She started crying because she hurt her arm! I was like OH NO Patty is going to think I am beating Emme lol! I gotta stop her from crying before Patty comes home! Haha. She stopped crying, I just kind of ignored her and made her laugh and she stopped.

I had a restful sleep in our Port Orleans bed. The beds were pretty comfy but the pillows weren't that great. They were too thin for one but too thick for two. The comforter was good though because it was broken in enough to be soft. The Art of Animation comforter from November was horrible. It was soo stiff!

I'm the same way about hot food, I'm pretty sure it drives my husband crazy! Great report so far. We're staying in a Royal Room on our next trip so I really appreciate your pics!

Cute Toy Story pictures!

I picked the same annual pass design for mine but it is already expired (I did the upgrade to the plastic ticket, even though it was only good for a couple of days). Makes me so sad not to have an AP anymore.

Your pictures of DHS in the dark are so pretty! Gotta love that park.

Wow, I would have been super annoyed after that ride too. GOOD GOSH. They probably had that mob mentality going on. So annoying.

Toy Story Mania makes EVERYTHING better! LOVE the Buzz and Woody pictures. SO CUTE.

I can't say a lot did.. But there is fading under my armpits and on my side where I wear my swing pack! I figured it was part of the look of the vintagey/faded tee. If it continues to fade ill probably just wear it under a sweater or zip up.

I hit send to quick!

I love the AP design! It is a dangerous little thing... We HAVE to go, I mean the tickets are "free". My DH thinks I'm crazy! We got ours last October and will get 3 week long trips out of it by the end - it was such a good purchase!

Loving the updates so far!

Yes hopefully one day they will change! I know I did! It was very annoying. There were lots of interesting things on the menu! I liked the restaurant the food just wasn't the greatest but it was pretty decent.

I am not going to upgrade mine either next year. Maybe once every other year. I am sure I will be said too!

Yeah the fading is still wearable but it definitely is there.

Haha thats my reasoning too! We can get in with no extra money so I just have to spend $400 for a plane ticket and $400-$800 for a hotel! LOL
