Went to DL yest evening with 3 goals: 1. eat a Monte Cristo before I start my diet today 2. View the fireworks from the hub 3. ride the Columbia Well - we got there at 7PM and followed the parade down mainstreet. We went directly to NO Square to get my Monte Cristo - the Cafe was full and they would not be seating anyone else that evening - they recommend PS through the dining line for future seating. I had to eat a dry hamburger from FL. Then the Columbia was no longer running - it was already docked to get ready for Fantasmic. (that we expected so not so much of a dissappointment) We had a prime spot for FW viewing! - There were several announcements that they might be cancelled. Then they were delayed (only about 10 minutes) - then they started to a cheering crowd. We got to the haunted house section and they stopped - with the announcement that the winds were too strong and they could not continue. We choose Wed because it is supposed to be lightest day - it was pretty crowded and seemed to be the most crowded I've seen it all summer. Maybe people are doing a lot of traveling in August. On the positive note - I got a great anniversary pillow - looks like those old embroidered table cloths but it the the 50s map of Disney by Shag. Really cool. I got very frustrated while we sat on the curb to eat (waiting for fireworks) - people kept stepping over me (and my food) - and when I would say something - they would repond by either ignoring me or saying something rude. There were a very few that would say excuse me - but certainly not the majority. The CM were very nice and friendly - and apologetic about the fireworks. I learned something new - the reason ToonTown closes by dusk is that the fireworks are actually shot from there (I thought they were from "the ranch") - and they have to close down to set up. Then the FD has to come in and completely check TT and FL before they can let anyone back in - that takes about 25 minutes. I guess this was the first time I tried to go back to FL so I never knew it stayed closed after fireworks. So despite the things that didn't go as planned - I still had fun.
