2,297 mins active total out of 1860 goal. Mainly walking & yoga this month. Haven't done much strength training
The photos are fab! Looks like you're having a great time. Thanks for sharing!!!
420 minutes since last check in. Part of that includes a wonderful hike in the Smokies. The view was worth the blisters!
We had lots of color changes this past week, and we have a few people who are within just a few minutes of a color change. I expect I'll be working hard to keep up with all of your progress for the next few days!
First up for the color changes is scdak! She is at 25% of her goal and has reached Polynesian Orange!
The Polynesian was the site of an historic break up in the music world. On December 29, 1974 at the Polynesian Resort, John Lennon signed the papers that officially dissolved The Beatles.
"John, Julian, and I (May Pang) left New York the following day to spend Christmas in Florida. On December 29, 1974, the voluminous documents were brought down to John in Florida by one of Apple's lawyers. He finally picked up his pen and, in the unlikely backdrop of the Polynesian Village Hotel at Disney World, ended the greatest rock 'n' roll band in history by simply scrawling John Lennon at the bottom of the page."
— May Pang, Instamatic Karma (St. Martins, 2008)
Update: While I was working on these latest posts, scdak popped in with a new update, so not only did she hit orange but she sped quickly ahead to purple so I'm adding her here, too.
Congrats, galaxygirl76 and scdak! You've reached Animal Kingdom Purple!!!! 50% there! Woohoo!
Animal Kingdom Fun Fact: The Animal Kingdom parking lot is about 100 acres in size. It holds 4500 cars. On opening day in April 1998, the parking lot was closed due to capacity just 20 minutes after opening.
Next up, we welcome sophy1996, kathleen27, and the TEAM to Epcot Grey!
Epcot Fun Fact: The total cost to build Epcot is estimated at $1.4 billion. It took three years to build and was, at the time, the largest construction project on the planet.
Catching up my minutes finally! 98 minutes this week, 24 more today.
And finally, HappyGrape and I have reached our goals and Magic Kingdom Green!
Magic Kingdom Fun Fact: Main Street USA was based on the town of Marceline, MO, where Walt lived as a child. He lived there from the age of 5 until 9. There is now a museum dedicated to Walt in the town of just over 2,000 people. Here is a nice article from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
I love this quote from the article based on a letter Walt wrote in 1938:
"To tell the truth, more things of importance happened to me in Marceline than have happened since — or are likely to in the future."

48 more minutes on the stationary bike
Another 341 since last posting, so that brings my total up to:
Just two color changes tonight. The team is pretty close to reaching 90%, though. If everyone records minutes tonight or tomorrow, we just might hit it.
For now, welcome scdak to Epcot Grey! You have been on a roll lately!
In honor of all the activity you've been posting, scdak, here's a fun Epcot fact for you. If you were to walk all the way around World Showcase (Mexico to Canada), you would have walked 1.25 miles. I don't know if it's all the concrete or just stopping to check everything out, but it sure feels a lot longer than that to me! : )
2manypets has reached Hollywood Studios Red and is sooooo close to reaching 100%!!!! Congratulations! Keep up the good work.
Because I love roller coasters and want to make sure this tidbit gets acknowledged, let's talk about Rockin' Roller Coaster. The coaster itself was originally built outside. The building was then built around it, making it an indoor coaster. The building's volume exceeds 3.7 million cubic feet. It opened July 29, 1999.
