    Wow, I had no idea that the arch changed color! Katharina and I are trying ot find an evening at DHS during our trip. Since they have added daily Fantasmic for when we are there, I wonder how evenings there will work out...

    I know right? :lmao: There was that 8:30 night and despite starting to lose my voice and beginning to cough I was still able to stay out somewhat late.

    They have told me anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours. I would assume that the photographer needs to go up and download. Unless they have somem magic way of doing it. :rolleyes:

    Since I love the EWP I visit the Poly on every trip. That proved to be important during a future trip. :upsidedow

    It was kind of reverse TSM stampede mentality. I got to hang around with out being "herded". :laughing:

    She caught me off guard so it was :confused: then :rotfl2:


    I survived. I was able to "shake it out" betwen rides. :laughing:


    My spidey senses were tingling.:lmao: I hope next time we get to spend more time together. ::yes::



    Tragic accident. I think it scheduled to reopen soon. I hope they found out why it happened and were able to prevent it from happeneing again.


    That was my "oh no, where did he go? look " :lmao:


    Yup that's him. :love: I did have consult the shrine ... I mean my other picture to confirm. :rolleyes: :lmao:

    Most times the busses are my little bit of "down time" before the next big adventure. Since you have reading along you know it doen't always work out, but most times I have had no troubles.

    Our dinner was great. I have heard Breakfast is great too. I think this trip I may get a sundress too. I had my eye on one in AK.

    I started really making time for those. So far mine have been with part of the fab 5 but it is a great little freebis so I take advantage when I can.

    So THAT's why I took that picture. The HM was not in my notes and when I looked over the pictures I guess I did not see it. Hard to believe since I see 'em when the they are not even there. :lmao:


    Do what I did and let it pass and then go in. I go a decent seat and it was on the end so I made a quick get away.


    Disney makes such ordinary things so cool. :lovestruc

    Hopefully you will be able to see it in person then.
    Hopefully those crazy crowds for Fantasmic will subside if it being offered every night. I think Disney was seeing how much it could save by cutting performances but the crowd situation was ugly. I hope that had some weight in resuming preformances.

    I have been stalking DVC for openings for my Dec NYE trip.

    I call again today and while we are looking around the CM tries to tell me I don't have enough points. I knew that was wrong so we started investigating.

    Apparently my wait list came through and I now have a split stay SSR for DEC 29 - Jan 1 and AKL for Jan 1-3. :cool1: ( now if I could get AKL for the first 3 nights. :scratchin ) I was able to cancel my reservation for POP and though I will hate to lose POP since I booked to hear the Christmas music, I will have to make a trip over for tye dye cheesecake and to hear the music. :)

    Day 7 Friday Sept 10th 2010.

    This morning Chris wanted more sleep so I let him sleep in. This time I would be in front. :laughing:
    I took my time leaving to catch the sights of the resort.
    First the smokers gathered around the fountain.

    [​IMG]

    I wonder why this woman is in time out?

    [​IMG]

    I am thinking this guy is looking for the pool.

    [​IMG]

    Uh Oh a runaway

    [​IMG]

    Oh wait he is practicing to be my son.

    [​IMG]

    My destination today?

    [​IMG]

    Feels like I was just here ;)
    However, all those people at F! are not with me. Arriving at 8:47, I am able to wait here.

    [​IMG]


    Follow the crowd to get this.

    [​IMG]

    Of course I get in the stand by line.
    The result?

    [​IMG]

    This guy waiting for a taxi?

    [​IMG]

    ToT is down. Must be something with the elevator. ;) So I take a spin in the limo using the single riders line.

    [​IMG]

    It I time for my FP. As I pass the return time is already.

    [​IMG]


    Did you ever notice there are 2 yellow green crayons ? the problem is they don’t look alike.

    The first in the stand by line.

    [​IMG]

    The second by the FP line.

    [​IMG]

    Geek photo :teeth:

    [​IMG]

    HM

    [​IMG]

    I tried to confuse myself with the next set of pictures but apparently I was able to take pictures of my score as I worked through the five games.
    After the henhouse.

    [​IMG]

    After the balloon pop volcano

    [​IMG]

    After the soldiers and the plate break.

    [​IMG]

    After the aliens in the rocket.

    [​IMG]

    Then the final mine carts

    [​IMG]

    Not my best. I guess I need a few spins to get my arm warmed up.

    All that string pulling worked up an appetite. Where shall I eat?

    We love a Kona dinner or a Kona breakfast, but I am partial to the dinner.

    You can come and visit us at Pop to see our Christmas tree and eat tie-dyed cheesecake.
    Then we'll come visit you at AKL on January 1 to see your Christmas tree and eat zebra domes. :santa:

    Working up an appetite, I went to Starring Rolls to burn a CS credit.

    [​IMG]

    I get a call from Chris and he is at AK. With nothing really on my list at DHS I prepare to walk out and catch a bus to AK.

    They must be filming a commercial or something.

    [​IMG]

    In about 20 min total I am getting off the bus at AK.

    After a few texts I find my boy here, doing one of his favorite things.

    [​IMG]

    Eating.

    As we walk around we see this guy and his pearly whites. Just like he had a foreign tourist for lunch. ;)

    [​IMG]

    We make our way here since there is a short wait.

    [​IMG]

    Doesn’t he just look bored? :lmao:

    [​IMG]

    Then he is off ..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Where is he heading???

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Lots of effort for this queue.

    Final instructions

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Did we get wet?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Oh yes.

    We spent some time in the sun watching the monkeys.

    Then we went over to the tree of life to watch the lemurs.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Chris had been talking with the trainers who were also out on the trail.

    [​IMG]

    Earlier Chris went over to the otter area and the otter was swimming in circles. The trainers told him the otter was old and alone. He lost his mate not too long ago and they decided not to try to bring another otter in since this otter was older and probably not acclimate well and it would not be fair to the new otter either.
    After some animal watching, we were still hot so we decided to head back and try the POR pool.

    [​IMG]

    We take the boat over and me not even thinking, I told Chris he did not need to take a shirt with him. We try to take the boat and the captain had to radio in to see if it was OK to take him. Oops :blush: that was my fault. They let him on but lesson learned.

    The slide

    [​IMG]

    We spent a while at the pool and relaxed. When it was time to go we decided to walk back.

    Tell me again why Chris went with you? :lmao::lmao::lmao: I'v'e never seen the back side of a kid more than your son; animals yes, kid--no!

    I never knew you couldn't go on the boats without a shirt.

    The pool at POR looks really nice.

    He went with me to get an all expense paid trip to Disney world!!!:lmao:

    My mother ( who can be a slow walker at times) used to complain that my dad would race ahead and always be way in front of her.

    I am not a slow walker but his legs are longer than mine and he just races ahead, always has. As soon as he could walk he ran. :laughing:

    What is funny is when he has no clue as to where he is going. We have taught him that lesson a few times.

    I had no idea about the shirt but it makes sense. I guess since the boat goes to DTD it matters.

    The POR pool was nice. The last time I was over there I was lost and rushing for beneigts and overshot POFQ. :lmao:
