April 12th, 2017 The next few posts are going to be photo heavy, sorry not sorry. I still get a kick out of a covered Main S... I mean World Bazaar! No time to go straight though - since Pooh's Honey Hunt was under refurbishment it was straight to the right for us! When we got to the fastpass machine for Monsters Inc though I realized my error... they were not distributing yet! What! I then realized that the announcement at the gate wasn't what rides were closed but must be what were OPEN. I should have listed more attentively... at least I knew where to go now instead - straight to Astro Blasters! Having been thoroughly trounced by my husband as usual (at least I kick his tush at Midway Mania...) I ran back to the machines, barely making it just before 9 to a bit of a line though nothing like Midway Mania had been. Right at 9 on the dot the machines started spitting out FPs. Random pic of the area: FP in hand, we then jumped over to the standby just in time for me to take a movie of the stampede of regular park guests from the entrance when I realized a CM was gesturing wildly at me and shouting out in Japanese that my ticket was the same as for that ride. I proudly yelled back that I knew in Japanese and he... kept coming. WHAT! He said again it was the same ride this time in English and I said again I knew in English... but but... it's the same ride ma'am! YES I KNOW. WE DON'T HAVE IT IN THE US OK, lol! He finally accepted that we knew what we were doing and went back to the entrance of the line... that's the first time I have encountered a CM so intent on helping guests that they chase one down through a queue! Inside area of the queue: Detail on the dome ceiling: I thought it was adorable and was glad we would get to ride it again later! I tried to take a picture of Roz but she came out way too blurry. There was no wait at Star Tours either so that is where we headed next. Also pretty blurry.. I think I will have to take my phone in to get looked at. We then started walking towards Fantasyland... this is from the second floor of a restaurant area I think that somehow ended up our walkway. Where were we headed? Well I REALLY had my heart set on getting a Pooh popcorn bucket but when we got to the honey cart... He was nowhere to be found?! I showed the woman working there a pic of it on my phone and she said they sold out of them and were not making them anymore. Oh, pooh (GET IT?). I was so bummed I didn't get any popcorn at all... I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. There had been a lot of people walking around with Pooh and it was on a website showing all the buckets so I had just assumed he was still there. While I thought about it we wandered Fantasyland a little. We decided to skip both the teacups and dumbo since we have them in the states. I saw these little cuties at a cart... now that I am home I wish I would have gotten all four of the mascots but I still don't know what I would have done with them. Oh well!
