What did they catch? Did you have to throw anything back?
A couple of sharks with friggin' laser beams attached to their heads and some angry mutated sea bass.What did they catch? Did you have to throw anything back?
We have a great time everywhere we go. We're just fun kind of people.Sounds like you had a really good day at DHS, and a great time at WCC! Looking forward to hearing about MNSSHP.
Very funny. I loved ToT. Only rode it once. My wife on the other hand hated it. In the picture they take on the ride, it looked like she has her head in my lap. I still wish I had bought that picture.For another perspective on ToT, check out my Facebook notes if you get the chance. I wrote up our experience on it from our trip in 2006.

I'm glad I rode it once at least. The effects on that ride are astonishing. But it'll be a long time before I get back on...FreezinRafiki said:I forgot to mention (and was kindly reminded by DW) that Grandpa refers to this attraction as "Hotel Hell"
Years ago (before kids!) we convinced Bambi's dad to take his one and only ride. A few years before that he took a bad fall and has had some back issues since. The picture we got from that ride was priceless - he was pretty stoic, but Bambi, her brother, and her mom are all looking over at him to see how he's doing with it. He was fine, but this is when he nicknamed it Hotel Hell.Very funny. I loved ToT. Only rode it once. My wife on the other hand hated it.

Actually, it was one BILLION dollars!
Sharks with frickin' laser beams! That must have cost one MILLION dollars!
Heck, even to walk through the queue line and see how it's decorated is worth it, even if you don't ride.I'm glad I rode it once at least. The effects on that ride are astonishing. But it'll be a long time before I get back on...
WCC is totally worth it. It's a blast! And after reading your trip report, I think we'll try HDDR.We almost got an ADR to WCC last time but went with HDDR. I think we are going to eat at WCC in March. Sorry about the kids mac n cheese. I'll have to remember not to mention that to my DD. LOL
It seems nice to have a day off in-between park days. (I could imagine... we've never done it LOL).
It's one of our 4 favorite parks!I really love DHS, I think a lot of people don't give the park a real chance. I think some are in such a rush to hit the big attractions that they don't stop every once in a while and soak up all that is being offered. It appears by your pictures that you and your family took it all in. The "streetmosphere" is something I really enjoy and your daughter is just too cute in that chair.
Keep up the great work on the TR.
Nah - 1/4 stick of dynamite with a water-proof fuse. Wait for the boom and the sploosh, then walk by with the fishin' net and skim 'em off the top!fishin in the pool. worms, flys or night crawlers?
Sorry, this looks painful, but I can't help but laugh
Agreed!That pic of you in front of the coach is too funny!!!!
They are the best, no doubt.Disney loves the little touches that make thing so much more special.
Wow! They managed to incorporate the pink elephants scene! Disney is really amazing.FreezinRafiki said:After the dwarfs, we did the Hunny Pots and rode Dumbo again. I was fiddling with the camera, and this came out. Kind of intersting.
Nice work! Still waiting for Nate's Its A Small War idea to catch on.FreezinRafiki said:We wandered over to its a small world. I got in line for a picture with Cinderella's coach while everyone else rode that for about the 9th time this trip. Who got the better end of that deal?
FreezinRafiki said:After I took one of little Cinderella with her ride, Bambi and Evan joined from stage left, and I set the camera down and ran in for a family shot. This is when things went horribly, horribly wrong. I know it sounds lame, but an old high school football injury came back to haunt me. I somehow took a wrong step or twisted just enough that my knee popped and sent a shooting pain up my leg. Lucky for you, it's captured on film.
We had a game plan going in as to what we were going to do at the party. Snow White, Halowishes and the 2nd parade. Everything we could fit in between was bonus.It looks like you guys had a blast at MNSSHP! You hit a lot of rides too!
That pic of you in front of the coach is too funny!!!!
I can't believe the bus driver turned the lights on so you could wave to people standing in the tram line.... now that's just wrong!
You may want to bookmark this site for your son. You know, just in case. http://www.mensa.org/Great job on the TR, love the pics of MNSSHP, we are hoping to take a trip at this time of year. I was actually trying to push the family to move our Jan trip to Oct and maybe go for 2 weeks. But my older son says we should go for a week in Jan and a week in Oct.
Smart kid, he must get it from his Mom
It's happened a few times before. I limp for about 30 minutes but then it feels better. And yes, I can sense changes in the weather by the ache in my knee. Geeze, I feel like an old man. Now GET OFF MY LAWN!Sorry, this looks painful, but I can't help but laugh
Hope it feels better.
We were watching that movie the other night. You have to wonder what was being passed around the animation room when that little beauty was being drawn.Wow! They managed to incorporate the pink elephants scene! Disney is really amazing.
Bambi and I were just discussing that. They could incorporate the technology that they use at the shooting arcades with the laser guns and little targets next to each figure. Hit the elephant, and he drops the kids off his trunk into the water. Hit the guy on the tightrope, and the rope snaps plummeting the kid on the bike into the open jaws of the alligator with the pink umbrella. Hit the kid with the boomerang and his dingo dog starts chasing around. The possibilities are endless!Nice work! Still waiting for Nate's Its A Small War idea to catch on.
Your kids look great in their costumes!
So you live near me and will be out of town for a while, huh? Where exactly do you live, again?Great Report. I just found and finished reading all of it.
I also am from Racine, WI...This is the first time I saw someone from where I am on here. I am leaving for Disney in 12 days with the kids, but the dog is staying home
Sounds like you had a great time so far, can't wait to read the rest..
Busy, busy! Holy cow! A split/split/split/split stay. That sounds like a lot of fun! If you do a trip report for it, post a link here. I'd love to read it.We are starting out by staying at CBR for 4 nights then going to Saratoga for 3 nights then going to Vero Beach and staying in a beach Villa for 2 nights and ending the trip with 3 nights at Animal Kingdom.
We are Flying out of Milwaukee (Airtran)
Did both of your kids get the birthday thing they have this year? was it easy to get and what if anything did they choose? (the free enterance or the gift card or the fast passes?)
