    Enjoying your TR, but had to pop in to comment.

    The way you were so scared to go on it, Craig probably was anticipating a really scary ride...and the fact is...its not really at all...I have a hard time grasping what there is to be "scared" of on this ride. I always end up on it by myself because my DW and DD6 both avoid it...DW says it makes her nauseous...a much better excuse to me than "scary".

    Plus maybe he got a "bad cycle" of drops. One time I was on it, it only dropped like 3 times, 2 of which were mini-drops. It was very disappointing compared to the heaftier cycles. This combined with being bummed that you chickened out on him could definitely make the ride seem kind of "meh". Next time you go...get him to try it again if you go through with it, he might really love it. We went with some freinds and the Dad and DD9 both thought it was their very favorite ride. (I favor Splash Mountain myself.)

    Aww, that is a bummer about Tower of Terror. That's one of my favorite rides now!

    Glad you enjoyed the Backlot Tour though. :thumbsup2

    haha i agree. im so lame for not going on it. i agree its not scary.. as in like i'm not scared of the actual ride (like the ghosts and stuff), but more the fact that I hate hieghts and i find that dropping motion scary.

    they were around the backlot tour. it was weird they were in like thier own little room. they were somewhere else last time i went! so we didnt find them till later.

    lol maybe he was trying... maybe he should try harder?! lol

    and from your TR it looks like u will be having disney food again! me on the other hand, it will probably be a while :(

    i knoww boo craig. lol

    im glad we get along so well too. ive never had that before with other guys. hes really wonderful :lovestruc

    haha i am gunna try next time. i have mild anxiety and sometimes it acts up so I dont like to trigger it if I can avoid it. haha hes a pretty good catch.

    hellO! totally understand what u mean, but its not really an "excuse" for me not to go on ToT. I would be lying if I said it made me nautious. it doesnt at all. I am scared of it, not the ghosts but the hieght and the dropping sensation are just not something i like. it made my anxiety act up, which actually annoys me and i wish it didnt happen because I felt super bad about not going on with him.

    It definitly might have just been the drops, or maybe being bummed out, or maybe I hyped it up too much but I'm sure he'll try it again next time and hopefully I'll be able to too!

    and btw i LOVE splash too. definitly my fave!

    haha it is a bummer. craig was all like... yea.... u better have admitted what a chicken u are on the dis. aha

    You're not lame!! I totally understand...I think this may be the only place we're not twins. I LOVE the dropping motion and it scares you! But that's okay. I actually think something might be wrong with me with how much I like it. I don't know if its natural :laughing:

    I'm so sad I didn't find them! I suppose I could've asked. I think its hard because they aren't near anything monster-y. They should move them to MK by the Laugh Floor! (Is there even room over there?) Like Buzz and Woody makes sense because its across from TSM...but I can't make a connection between monsters and the backlot tour!:confused3

    I wish you were going back sooner!! I'll just take a detour to Canada and pick you up! :rotfl: Its only a little detour!

    Thanks guys! She had her little girl (she knew it was gunna be a girl) Ava on monday night at 9:30ish pm. She weighed 7.5lbs and she is just the cutest little thing. Im so happy for her and her DBF. Im definitly an "aunty" haha.

    In more news today I had a meeting for another teachers college, and it went SOOOO well!! i think im in for sure! This is the school I really wanna get in to because its located in toronto, the other school I applied to is in Buffalo and it would be a huge huge pain and VERY expensive, so Im really hoping I get to this school! I had an interview with the lady who makes the decision and she said grade wise I should have no problem and experiance wise sounds good.

    I should know about Buffalo soon and I`ll know about this school in JUNE! Which is sooo far away but I have good feelings.

    Send me pixie dust please! i need it!!

    OK, I'm not going to lie, when I first read that I did not see the second F in BFF and got very confused. LOL! :rolleyes1

    Congrats to your friend though! And good luck with the school stuff.

    Aw Ava is such a cute name!! Enjoy her!! I bet you'll be such a good aunty! :goodvibes

    And I bet you'll get into the school you want to! It sounds so good! Why do they take so long to let you know? That's frustrating. Doesn't she know you have people on the Dis to report to? And we don't like to be patient! :rotfl:

    Hi, Vallie!! I commented on your dining report, and just caught myself up with this one!! So much fun-- DBF grew to LOVE Disney from our August trip, and some of our favorite moments were just sitting on the bus going to the Poly for our dinner at Ohana, or just walking on Main Street. Don't get me wrong-- we love, loved all the rides and shows and experiences, but it's those "little moments" (like you guys watching TV at Pop!) that really make your trip and make you remember just how much you love your boyfriend/husband/family! :lovestruc

    Also, hate to disappoint you-- but I think you and Craig went to the Wolfgang Express on the West Side. (Near House of Blues) They don't have pasta there. BUT-- at the Wolfgang express near Earl of Sandwhich, tucked in a little corner, they definitely still have all of their famous pasta dishes!! When we went on our last afternoon, it was a very tough decision for me between the four cheese pesto pizza and the baked macaroni (I went with the pizza-- delicious!). They definitely had the spaghetti and meatballs, too, because I tried to convince DBF to get that instead of the adult chicken fingers (which were incredibly delicious!!)
