    It's so wonderful to have 'friends' :hug: who completely understand my excitement and are just as excited as I am (and maybe a wee bit jealous!)

    Because you KNOW my non-Disneyaholic friends are going to think we are just ill... what do they know!

    Thanks again everyone! Check back tomorrow night, late... gonna get this update going!

    I've been to several lives shows in the Northern VA area (4 times), Charlotte (twice), Drum Along the Rockies (once), and DH and I attend the World Championships at the University of Maryland in 2000.

    I just watched the shows on TV as a kid. They didn't have too many lives shows around us in Southern Cal while I was growing up.

    So... we were trying to kill time before Tyson's big debut on RnRCoaster.. his FIRST attempt at an upside-down adventure. I felt like we had done EVERYTHING and we still had a few minutes to spare before scoping out a spot for the Block Party Bash. So we...in a fit of sheer insanity... meandered over to TSM.

    Um... yeah...

    [​IMG]

    Obviously, we were no where close to obtaining a fast pass, since they probably distributed them ALL within the first 2.3 minutes of the park opening. And no way, no how was I waiting THAT long!! Again, the beauty of being a multi-trip-a-year family... we'll just get to it next time!;)

    We walked along the Block Party Bash route (I refuse to call it a parade.. cause it just ain't one!) and found a spot in front of the busts of famous people in entertainment. It was the perfect place to wait. Tyson made a new friend and the two of them had a blast jumping, sitting on :scared: , and making fun of the busts... whatever.. no one seemed to be getting offended!

    I had a blast watching this CM:

    He had a bubble machine. Kids were following him like the Pied Piper. He was looking for the kid who popped the 'trivia bubble'. Then he would ask the kid a Disney question. If they got it right, they got a sticker or some other meaningless (to an adult) prize. Those kids were eating it up! Ty was not interested at all. He so like his Daddy... stay as far away from group activity as possible!!

    We FINALLY heard the show making its way towards us.

    Let the show begin! Warning... lots of pictures ahead. And I tried to take a bunch of the 'extra' performers, as I have a dear friend who is going to major in music theatre performance, and I have a feeling she'll be sporting some Disney costumes at SOME point in her future!!!

    This one was funny.. you can see how close we were to the action. Mr. Potato Head's eye turned completely around. Kinda like the exorcist... and kinda not...

    Tyson really enjoyed the BPB. We were glad we were in front of the Toy Story float, but felt kinda left out of Monsters,Inc and Bug's Life.. although they DID go by us on their way to the next 'stop'. We were very close, and Tyson even got to get in the show! Check it out:

    [​IMG]

    How 'bout that YMCA dance? I know, we've got work to do. But his 'Can't Touch This' dance was pretty darn good!

    The worst part of his little performance? Ty could NOT stop talking about how mortified he was that he had to dance next to a kid with a BOSTON hat on!!:rotfl: Man, DH has him Yankee-fan-bound for sure!!

    Okay.. we surely have waited enough...is it time yet?!?!
    :banana: YES!! RnRoller Coaster.. HERE WE COME!!

    Our FP got us right up to the marble door:
    [​IMG]

    Ty and Matt sat together, I rode with a single rider. I had a HORRIBLE time!!:sad2: After the take off, which is just incredible, I just got the TAR shaken out of me. It was soooooo bumpy. It rattled me around like an over-zealous baby on uppers!! My head was KILLING me:headache: But Ty... HE LOVED IT!!!:lovestruc
    [​IMG]

    So. Our little man is now a coaster expert! :dance3:

    And we... are FINALLY LEAVING DHS!!! :dance3:

    Up next... two more episodes to go... a quick dip in the OKW pool, and an even quicker night at AK. How many times DID we ride EE?!!


    And stay tuned for pics from our spontaneous getaway. We are leaving Sunday morning!!!!:cheer2:

    Great update! Your son is so cute and the Boston reference was amusing!

    On our first ride on RnR I opened my mouth to scream and no sound came out. I was just too freaked out! I really wish we would have bought that photo.

    Thanks so much! I'm hoping we will!!

    I'll be mostly doing a picture exhibit on this TR. Hoping to get lots of cute ones!!


    Ha! I laughed so hard when he said that! I guess DH's Yankee-blood flows stronger than I thought!!

    And I agree about the take-off... I can't make a sound, either. I DO love that part. It's the rest I can do without!
