    How exciting! We did global entry for all of us a few months ago since we're heading to London this fall. I'd love to hear all about your trip when you return. Disneyland Paris would be so much fun. Too bad I couldn't convince the rest of my family to take the train to Paris while we're there.

    Wow! Three color changes today! Congrats to MikeNamez and Oneanne for reaching Ovation Orange and to sophy1996 for being the first to reach Pat on the Back Purple!!!! :figment::tigger::figment::tigger:

    Here's a song from Moana that always makes me feel like I can accomplish anything I set my mind to. I hope it inspires you, as well:



    And this is a great article about Lin-Manuel Miranda's process of creating How Far I'll Go.

    TDR and a trans-Pacific cruise?! You guys sure know how to plan incredible vacations. That sounds like the way to do this! So much better than a long, sad flight home.

    60 minutes at the gym on this lousy day (435/1000).
    @Twilight Sparkle and @ljcrochet, sounds like great trips! We did global entry a couple of years ago and can’t say enough how great it it! Pre-check is good, but kind of hit or miss at our airport. We often start on a shorter line, but then merge with the regular line at the actual screening. It’s good not to have to take off your shoes, though. But, when you get off the plane coming home, so tired from the long trip, and see the loooooong lines, it’s a good pick-me-up to find the blue flag and literally sail through!

    How Far I’ll Go is one of my absolute favorite songs! Love Moana!

    I'm sorry today was a lousy day! :sad1: Hopefully it's just the weather and nothing else going wrong in your life.

    Thanks for the insight into global entry. It sounds like it will be worth the time and the $.

    @Twilight Sparkle - just the weather! It’s been so cold and rainy yesterday and today, and they’re saying tomorrow, too. We’d planned to go to brunch yesterday in a restaurant that’s on the boardwalk in a beach town. But the place is seasonal and has mostly roll down plastic walls and it was 45 degrees with 30 mile an hour winds. Yes, we canceled! I’m just tired of all the rain over the last month. I don’t know how people in Seattle survive!

    Bummer about brunch. Hope you found a nice alternative. Too much rain - especially cold rain - is never fun.

    @sophy1996 Sounds like an amazing time in TDR! I hope to get out there some day, glad to see that you believe that any US park veteran will be able to survive. :P

    Adding 175 minutes since Thursday. I took a 15 minute walk on Thursday, a 20 minute walk on Friday, and a 20 minute walk today. Over the weekend, I visited my family in Cincy for mothers day and got a King's Island season pass. I spent about 6 hours in the park this weekend, so I'm counting a third of it for minutes, so +120 for walking this weekend.

    Our ship got a warm welcome on its first visit to Muroran, Japan (on the northernmost island, Hoikkado). We toured some beautiful national park areas and were waved off with a nice performance by local kids.

    110 minute hike yesterday evening ending with a fantastic unexpected viewing of a nighthawk feeding frenzy over the lake at dusk. Our daughter wasn't with us, but since she's our bird lover, I'm taking her tonight to hopefully give her a chance to see them. My husband counted at least 50 nighthawks last night. I was too mesmerized to count them.

    3 more color changes today: piglet1979 and Elizabeth Smith move to Ovation Orange, and Twilight Sparkle (me) is now at Pat on the Back Purple. Congrats to our newest color changers! :rainbow::rainbow::rainbow:

    Our TEAM has jumped up to 44% which is not too bad for almost halfway through the month. We need 613 minutes to reach our next color change.

    Since sophy1996 is cruising across the ocean, I think it's time we sing along to Under the Sea:



    This song was released in 1989 as part of the soundtrack for The Little Mermaid and has remained popular ever since. Here's a bit of trivia related to Under the Sea:

    • The song is based on the song "The Beautiful Briny Sea" from the 1971 film Bedknobs and Broomsticks.
    • The track won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1989.
    • The song is present throughout all the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts around the world as well as the Disney Cruise Line.
    • The music is briefly heard during Aladdin just before Genie turns Aladdin into a prince. During this segment, the Genie opens a recipe book to find a supposed recipe for a prince and comes upon "Alaskan king crab", a snippet of "Under the Sea" playing as he pulls Sebastian from his finger.

    Hopefully we remain safely above the sea. :D

    Sebastian was at DisneySea, at the Mermaid Lagoon area (naturally).
