I was itching like I had a bad case of chiggers to get in that park!! I am definitely spoiled by the Fast Passes and being there at Rope Drop to make the dash to my favorites! I can see how people that do not utilize these things can go home from a WDW vacation frustrated and disappointed!! I love going during this time! It is amazing what they do with those flowers and everything just pops with color! That is hilarious about your granddaughter and the phone! It is amazing what goes on in those long lines! In some cases on this particular trip we had some pretty good entertainment! We even have a Spanish incident coming up later in the day! I loved being a tour guide! It was fun to give the tidbits I have learned that aren't in plain site! But thankfully I (hope) did refrain from being overly obnoxious! F&G was beautiful!! I wish I had more time to really spend time lingering in some areas but I was grateful for the time I did have there! You will have a blast trying out your new camera! My only regret was not having time to linger and try different settings at times! I was very happy when they expressed how much they enjoyed Soarin'! There is nothing worse than standing for an hour and then being disappointed! 60 minutes was very tough and I am not used to standing on concrete for that long! Even on past Disney vacations!!
