    had breakfast and on to AK again....we like that park.....went on the Safari again and saw a lot more animals....a few rhinos were having a tiff...I think the hay was being consumed by the wrong rhinos.....they had a good row.....Very hot today too....I know now the term shuffling ones feet must be from Floridians.....we sort of shuffled from one area to another....we did Dinosaur again and as usual I LOVE THAT RIDE....scares me everytime....it was way hotter and more humid then the previous days...so we started to find a way out of the park.....we did find a place that has a similiar concoction to our Coffee Coolatas ....it was a frozen coffee drink and it was high test and delicious....we had a buzz and we forgot that we hadn't eaten lunch until night time....the drink was very filling....we took a bus to Epcot and walked onto Test track....well daaaaaaaaa it broke down and we walked to the boat and over to Dolphin...we swam for a few hours...I was pruning up really good....after a bit we decided to try test track again....so back to the boats and over to Epcot..we finally got on Test Track and I had my thrill for the day....love that ride.....we walked over to the WS side and saw the drum thingie...we enjoyed it ...great to see this gave me goosebumps....we sat there and decided to have a good old fashion double cheeseburger....Disney makes them so good....we dont' normally eat this way ....so it is a treat....walked to International Gateway area and the statue was outstanding.....and what a riot...laughed and wondered how they can keep a straight face that long.....I made my husband watch OK with me so I could finally see a whole show.....they are good and did a good show.....we were so hot so we took the boat over to Boardwalk and got off and got a beer....was amazed that we could drink it while walking back to the Dolphin.....swimming again on the agenda....had a good time.....went back to our room and started the thought process of having to go back to MAINE.....

    Hi there,

    Just saw that you were from Maine too and had to say hi! What part of Maine? I live in South Berwick. Enjoying your trip reports and wishing I were there too!

    I've always loved TT too!

    We went in May of 97 hoping it would be open as predicted, but we were so dissapointed it was delayed:(

    Then went back December 97 & it still wasn't open:mad: :mad: :(

    But of all the times I've ridden it, I haven't had a breakdown yet (knock on my wooden head) LOL

    Thanks for the great report!

    looks like you had a fun weekend. we were there over the weekend too. all star musics though. We were at epcot the sat that you were.....during that brief but heavy rain we were getting wet out side of chef's de france. We were at MK sun morning too. The crowds were not bad at all this weekend which was nice.

    We are heading down soon and wondering if the pool/hot tub area of the Dolphin was very crowded in the afternoons? My main reason for selecting the Dolphin was proximity to parks and hoping the pool area was less chaotic than the All Stars.
