    What a wonderful day at MK!

    Seriously, just reading about it put a huge smile on my face. You had some good pixie dust with you all day. :wizard:

    The pictures you got of Wishes are beautiful! Kudos.

    I did a lot of practise shots with my camera before leaving home and really liked how the continuous mode pictures came out. With the ones I got from Wishes, if I move thru the pictures quickly, its like I'm there watching it again! :rotfl2:

    We made a big effort not to try and cram so much in. We could have stayed longer with the EMH but I'm glad we ended things "early". It was midnight by the time we turned in for the night and any later than that we would have started getting grumpy with one another.

    :rotfl: I'm trying to make it last as long as I can. Welcome aboard!

    Thanks :hug: and yay for your smile! Our first day at MK was wonderful.... too bad our second day wasn't. :sad2:

    It was really :cloud9:

    Now I need to figure out if my camera has a continuous mode or not...I know it has a fireworks mode...but continuous I'm not sure and to make matters worse I'm not sure where I put the user manual CD...so its on my list to find LOL!!

    I loved your update!! What great pictures!!! I'm glad Demetri was able to not only enjoy his favorite once but twice!!!!! Part of the fun of Disney is being able to say you know what I'm going to do that next time!!! I can't wait to read more!!

    Just lovely fireworks photo in front of the castle...:goodvibes

    I agree that Buzz seems less crowded since TSM-which is ashame-its still a really fun ride...I love spinning in the ships too...

    So you got nailed by the spitting camel too huh?:lmao:

    Love the HM at dusk...extra creepy...:eek:

    Sounds like you all had a fabulous day...:thumbsup2

    (Not liking the sound of your next update...Missing kids...:scared1:)

    Another great update and lots of fun pics. How fun Demetri got to be part of the show on the JC!

    I still love Buzz Lightyear but the thing that annoys me is the triggers are so hard to use! Dad mentioned something about how it seemed like his gun would work once every three shots. :confused3 I seriously wish they would redo it so they are like the Disneyland ones. There your guns are attached to a cord so you can pull them out and they light up/vibrate so you know you hit a target. It works a LOT better!

    Argg! Can I steal your Fireworks shots? They're so great! I need to figure out how to get my camera to do that - my fireworks shot leaves the shutter open for about 5 seconds, which means they turn out awful...

    I love Splash Mountain too! So much more than it's Animal Kingdom counterpart... :sad2:

    (you'll see why soon.)

    And I'm glad you're all having a good time - although I am a little leery of the next update. :(

    You got soo much done!

    They are doing a pretty major rehab of Space Mountain, but not as extensive as the one at DL. SM at DL was closed for over a year.

    Happy practising! ;)

    I wonder why they would have done it differently? The DL version DOES sound better! I thought I was doing really well picking off targets left, right and center..... but my score says otherwise.:sad2:

    I can't wait to see the finished product. I've heard rumors of what the changes are and they sound great.

    That's why I like the continuous option. Out of six shots, on or two are bound to be good! :thumbsup2

    Thanks! I loved how creepy and dark the ride looked when everything else was so bright and cheery!

    the rumored changes to SM do sound great.

    Have you seen the pics of the demolition they are doing right now to the old skyway building--CRAZY.

    I hadn't seen the pics but looked them up. Wow. I had no clue WDW used to have a Skyway! That stroller parking area by IASW makes more sense to me now. Hope they make it a restaurant but its a shame they couldn't have just converted the existing building.

    I wonder why they're demolishing it? If they weren't going to do something with the space why not just leave it? Hopefully, something new is coming.
