Hey everyone! I'm back for another update! But before I start...quick Disney update NOT related to this TR! My dad and I have been dying to see a shuttle launch before they retire the fleet in 2010. So we just booked a quick trip down to Florida for the Nov 16th launch. Cross your fingers that the launch doesn't get scrubbed!!! And since we'll be down in Florida... dad wanted to stay at..... AKL....woohoo! We got a pretty sweet discount with my AP rate so we figured why not? Never stayed there and I even convinced him and Stepmom to try Jiko. Should be interesting b/c they are NOT adventurous eaters. If the shuttle goes up on time, we'll have 2 full days and 1 half day in the parks....plus a full day at Kennedy Space Center. If the launch gets delayed to the next day... how much time we'll have depends on if we actually get all the way out to KSC before they decide to scrub it. I'll probably just throw that mini trip report and stuff into my January trip report so keep an eye out....eventually. Who knows if I'll ever make it over to that PTR to actually update it anytime soon. But anyways.... So after our yummy Pooh-less breakfast at Crystal Palace, I wanted to head to Fantasyland and knock out as many of the big rides as possible before the masses showed up. It was a little after 9am when we left. CP check-in was a MADHOUSE. Glad we got the 8am slot! On our way to Fantasyland... We also ran into the Fairy Godmother but the line was already too long so we decided to skip her. Sadly that was the trend all week. We always caught most of the characters after the lines to see them were crazy long. We met SO many more characters on our last trip! The first ride we did was Snow White, with no line whatsoever, which we haven't done in YEARS! The past few trips I've kinda skipped most of Fantasyland just due to the lines. It was cute to see again. After that we jumped over to Peter Pan, which stated that there was a 10 minute wait but I highly doubt that's how long we waited for it. Tweet Update, 9:21 AM Sep 27th: Just met @Ekkirt at cp..always nice to put a face with a name =) on line for peter pan now! I tried to get some photos in here but the black light and the darkness just wasn't agreeing with my camera. I think this is definitely one of the cutest rides in Fantasyland..just don't understand how the line is always SO long! It's nuts! Up next? Small World! Mom LOVES this ride. She thinks is the cutest thing ever. But umm...can someone tell us which dolls are supposed to be from Greece? I swear they used to be there but...I couldn't find them this time. Ok I think that's enough SW photos for today.... hope you guys didn't start singing the song! Between Small World, Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow, and the Celebrate Today song... I was trying to think of ANY way to force a new song into my brain! By the time we finished up SW, there were decent lines forming in Fantasyland so we high tailed it out of there towards Liberty Square. Saw the line for Haunted Mansion said 10 mins but it looked much shorter so we jumped on line. After only waiting for one other group to go into the stretching room before us, we were inside. Is this room actually stretching...? They might be 'dusty' but I totally want these in my house... After getting out of HM, it was time to rest the feet for a bit. What better place than the Hall of Presidents? I was excited to see the new version with Obama. I enjoyed the new show and think they did a great job with the additions and changes. I don't think Obama looks 100% like himself but...then again I was looking at both George Bush's in HOP and they look kinda funny too. Tweet Update, 10:43 AM Sep 27th: Since when is there no photos allowed at all in hop? We were sitting in the very front row and I had my camera in my hand getting ready to take photos when the CM announced that there were NO photos allowed. I swear he was looking straight at me. ***?! I was kinda pissed. I had NEVER heard of such a thing! I later found out in the week that this CM was probably just having a crappy day because the other CM that spoke the 2nd time said no flash photography and was totally cool with normal photos sans flash. Go figure. Wandered a few stores afterwards in Liberty Square as we walked towards Frontierland. Ok, I'm getting sleepy so I'm going to end here for now.
