Lol yes! (And yes about the convention folk too!)

It’s a lovely resort! I wish we had time to explore more of it.

    Rookies in Batuu
    September 17th, Part 1

    Originally we were going to go to Food & Wine this day, but it was so hot out I couldn't really picture eating a bunch of food outside. So we made a last minute change, and decided to check out Batuu since crowds were nowhere near as crazy as we'd feared while planning.

    After lunch and Samantha winning some TSMM:



    We reconvened at our favorite place to go in HS, tipsy or sober, which is apparently this poster from The Rookie.

    452831
    (I do have to say, I really like this show though especially this new season).

    After getting a selfie with Nathan Fillion in and securing a promise from Samatha that she "wouldn't make me be in a Star Wars" we headed to Batuu.

    452832



    As many of you might know, I'm not a Star Wars fan. I've seen the first 6 movies, but I didn't care for them, (or retain much from them). Samantha does love Star Wars though, and I love Disney Parks so I did want to check it out. I just didn't want to be involved in some of the more interactive elements of this area, and I figured it wouldn't have a lot of appeal to me. (Also I was not planning on calling bathrooms, refreshers :laughing:).

    I will try my best to describe what's going on, but for some of it I'm not sure. :rotfl:

    452833

    So when we first walked in it was a bit of a walk till we got to anything. Samantha was Facetiming her husband (who's also a fan), and for the first bit there wasn't much to show him, and she ended up waiting till we got further in to call him back. The crowds were much, much lower than I ever anticipated. In fact there didn't seem to be very many people in there at all. The walkways were big, and there was a lot of room to move around in. Generally we saw relatively low crowds across our trip (aside from some nights at HHN in the beginning), so it doesn't seem Batuu's opening had the effect everyone anticipated. (Though I do wonder if some of that is because so many people anticipated the crowds, that many decided to stay away).

    We came upon some space vehicles and our first PP when we were a little ways in:





    Walking in:



    More space vehicles:



    Batuu stuff :rotfl::

    452834






    (Not sure if all of these are in the right order because Imgur kind of mixed them around when I uploaded them).

    Shortly after entering we sought out some Blue and Green Milk. We had mobile ordered in case of case of crowds, but there was no line so we hadn't really needed to. We found some shade to drink them in, and I stayed there for awhile while Samantha interacted with a passing Stormtrooper.


    Hollywood Brown Derby & Milk Stand in Batuu Review



    We found the Millennium Falcon:



    452835

    There was a PP spot across from it, and I like how these all turned out even though they did make us do the sassy twin pose at one point. :rotfl:





    #ThanksPhotopass



    We didn't go to Oga's (we'd ended up canceling our reservation), but the part I thought was coolest was the Marketplace. (Figures I'd like the mall even on another planet :laughing:, although the shopping here wasn't really to my taste).

    452836



    This store was very themed:









    Samantha bought some of those knitted looking Star Wars characters in a shop outside (they were pretty cute) while I stood in front of a large fan, and then we decided to head out because as the day before it was very, very hot out, and Batuu isn't too shady of a place.

    452837



    Overall I didn't really expect to be wowed by Batuu because I'm not a Star Wars fan. I see where it's impressive and immersive for fans, but it probably won't be a place we visit too often. (Josh isn't really a Star Wars fan either). Due to my motion sickness I'm not sure if the ride would be okay for me (we didn't try to go on it because Samantha wanted to ride for the first time when she came back with her husband, but the waits were lower than we'd thought all week).

    I would like to try Oga's someday, but most the food places don't really appeal to me either. I will say, I know it isn't supposed to be much different than the DL one, but I would like to see that one. I watched a lot of the DL opening coverage (because it opened first), and it's kind of hard to explain, but I remember seeing the drone footage from that one and I was actually pretty impressed by what I saw, and just didn't feel that way in the WDW one, I guess? I know there isn't any major differences, but I'd like to see if that one feels different in person.

    Back in the room we saw this very strange commercial multiple times while watching another Lifetime movie. :laughing:



    And took more pictures of our lovely view:





    Next Up
    We go to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party!
    (I rolled the vlog for our Batuu day into a later one because it wasn't long so I'll be posting the MNSSHP ones first).



    Also brief IRL update because I haven't started a PTR for next year yet:

    We have decided on going back to California for our first trip next year. Ideally it'll be April 17th-25th (we get our time off requests next week but they don't send us a guarantee about our time until Dec/Jan). In this time frame we'd get to go to DCA's Food and Wine. We'll be going to the same areas again, but spending more time in LA, and visiting Universal Hollywood.

    Also a little poll for our HHN trip (because I'll have to pick the week for that too):
    Would you pick the first week it's running or the second?

    The first has the plus side of being opening weekend (which I love being at), and we'd get five days of HHN (unless I'm able to use my comp day to go the Thurs it starts on which isn't something I'd know till we were really, really close), however if we go the second we'd get an extra day (because the Wednesdays the event is on seem to start a little later).

    Awesome! And you won't have to worry about snow storms or hurricanes this time around :thumbsup2

    What do you think the differences will be crowd-wise? That would play strongly into my decision, but I also get the appeal of your other considerations, too!

    Haha, well I thought that last year and then Baltimore had a tornado and we got stuck in Denver for the night :laughing: But hopefully that was a one time thing.

    Opening weekend is probably more crowded, but we’ve done both before and it just depends on the day imo. The last few years Fridays have been the most crowded I’ve seen. We also are considering getting the every night EP ticket so we might not have to worry. I did just find out a Supernatural convention is in the area the first weekend, and I’ve always wanted to try going to one so that’s pushing me towards that weekend. (Although then I get to figure out how we’ll do both haha) If we can leave on Thurs instead of Fri we’d have the same amount of nights too.

    Guess who decided to show up to this party??

    kramer.gif

    This is the first time I've been back on the Dis since getting back from this trip...two months ago?? I just couldn't bring myself to do it, I don't know why. I think it's because for the first time in like six years I don't have a trip planned :sad::sad:

    From the vlogs I've realized that nothing about me looks good when the camera is below me looking up, LOL. They are all bringing back fun memories though, and I feel like I'm out of my "avoid all things trip" mood.

    You have officially got me onboard the Horror Nights train, and I find myself missing it a LOT and often. I am still surprised by how many people had babies and little kids with them. That was weird.

    While watching the first day of Disney vlog with the safari :rotfl: I think the first thing I told Matt and the boys about when i got home was the lady on the safari exclaiming over every.single.thing.she.saw. And then I am watching and I hear, "ooh look at that" while the flamingos are on screen and I died. It's 100% how my grandparents would be if they were there.

    OMG! I was so far behind!!!!!

    Next we were checking into the Gran Destino:

    I have a version of this as my screen saver on my phone. So beautiful! I didn't quote your comment about checking in but we had a rough check in there as well. I hope they work out there issues.

    And we decided to head to Three Bridges Bar & Grill to finish off our Food & Wine-ing:

    Three Bridges Bar & Grill Review

    I have to hop over and read about how you guys liked 3 Bridges. We loved it BUT we were there early, so there was NOT a lot of drunk conventioners.

    It's kind of weird to me that we probably won't be back before HHN, we've been doing Christmas trips the last few years. I know you'll plan a trip soon!

    Lol, I was watching some older ones the other day, and I was like is my voice really like that? :rotfl: The one I have coming up has a hilarious moment in it.

    You have officially got me onboard the Horror Nights train, and I find myself missing it a LOT and often. I am still surprised by how many people had babies and little kids with them. That was weird.
    I know I miss it sooo much :sad: That was weird, I haven't felt like there were as many in previous years, but I saw them everywhere this year. When I was watching Marathon of Mayhem a second time with Alyssa and Zack the woman next to us was holding a crying baby.

    While watching the first day of Disney vlog with the safari :rotfl: I think the first thing I told Matt and the boys about when i got home was the lady on the safari exclaiming over every.single.thing.she.saw.

    It is! I hope they figure things out soon, I was surprised because it seemed like she really didn't want to even try to help, just wanted us to drop it and go. And if we thought it would've been complicated we would've tried to take care of it beforehand.

    MNSSHP
    September 17th, Part 2

    So something I forgot to mention earlier was that when we got to the elevators to go back to our rooms, a lady (just another guest), randomly asked us while we were waiting for the elevator if we needed her to show us where anything was. It was very random, and she was definitely a guest, as I think she even had luggage with her. We didn't take her up on that strange offer.

    453521

    Anyway when we last left off we were on our way to MNSSHP. Here we are in our matching shirts:



    453522

    We decided to take a Minnie Van to avoid the same mistakes we made with Villains After Hours. Our driver was VERY chatty.

    But we had arrived!



    I like to imagine we're in Halloweentown when I see these. Not from the Nightmare Before Christmas movie, but from the DCOM movie Halloweentown.



    See it's close!

    453518

    We were led down a little side path with candy, PP spots, and statues of the characters in Halloween costumes.



    I do not regret skipping most PP ops in this area :rotfl: There's a second one of these I will not share because instead of scared we look terribly offended, like someone just told us something horrible.



    Things hadn't really started up yet so we decided to try some of the snacks before lines got crazy.

    MNSSHP Snacks Review

    On the way there I got this picture of the castle. :lovestruc



    The vlog is a little out of order because I split it into two parts, but after that we decided to go towards Pirates, because we wanted to ride Haunted Mansion when it was dark out, and the party was in full swing. The Halloween music had just started and the sun was still setting so we weren't quite there yet.

    We did see Br'er Rabbit on the way though which is very exciting because I've never run into any of the Br'er's out and about.



    My favorite guy in the Pirates queue was this guy :rotfl: He screamed when he saw this man's light up necklace and said that it was sorcery.



    There were more characters throughout the ride than there had been for the Villains After Hours Event, and it was really fun. Samantha's favorite "the man who needs a key but could easily walk out of the room" was another returning character.



    Though you cannot tell at all from this PP picture that we were having a good time.



    #ThanksPhotopass

    Not only do all of us look incredibly bored or unhappy, (one guy looks mildly amused) but no one is looking at the camera. It looks like the entire boat was in a terrible mood when this picture was taken. The people behind us are even looking at their phones. :rotfl: I think this picture belongs in a museum of bad PP pictures.

    With that misery over :laughing:, it was time to head back to the Haunted Mansion:



    Lady Carlotta was hilarious as always.



    Again we look offended and maybe a little confused, and I seem unsure of my hand placement which I should be, because whatever I'm doing with my hands looks weird.



    #ThanksPhotopass

    But my very favorite #ThanksPhotopass moment from the night (and the Pirates one is hard to top) goes to this moment....



    AHHH scary...air?

    THEY NEVER PUT THE GHOST IN!!!:rotfl:

    453523

    They were having problems with the camera, and we probably held our pose for like 5 mins straight, and it uh didn't pay off.

    We had to check out the Mad Tea Party overlay, so here's a terribly lit picture of us on that:



    Shortly before the fireworks we slipped into a pretty good spot. The hard part was keeping it as people kept trying to squeeze in where there was no room. But we banded together with the family next to us, and we all made sure we stayed in place. :laughing:

    I liked the Jack puppet:



    And the projections are always cool:







    But honestly I liked the former firework show better. I think the music/show just flowed better, and it had more energy. And like 2 months out, I find this show to be kind of forgettable, and not one I'd go out of my way to watch again.

    We figured now was the time to get our spot for Boo To You so that's pretty much where we spent the rest of the night. Before the parade some PP people came around, and we took these pictures that we thought would come out really cute....



    But looks like we're screaming "help us" with our eyes :rotfl:



    I promise you we were happier than we looked! #ThanksPhotopass

    453524

    Soon the Headless Horseman was heading towards us:


    (I mostly took video during the parade, so that should make up for the quality of some of these photos).

    Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps came out first to hype up the crowd:



    Then the parade started:









    (I think this was my favorite float).



    As always Boo To You was a lot of fun, and I love the song. We shopped a bit on the way out, but didn't get anything, and with that MNSSHP was over! When these parties end it always feels like we got a lot done, but that there was so much more we could've done. Especially when you want to see the fireworks and parade. Overall we had fun at the event and the snacks were great this year. The only downside was I wasn't a huge fan of the new fireworks show. But everything was an improvement on the Villains Event, even the ride overlays. Samantha and I always have fun together though, and we have all those weird PP pictures to remember the night by. :rotfl:



    I wrote that we got back around 1 am, and also I'm apparently repressing the memory of a near death experience, because I don't remember this but my notes state: "Bus driver almost killed us, went the wrong way, and stopped abruptly."

    MNSSHP Pt 1: Party Snack Reviews, Ride Overlays & Fireworks


    Also a Youtube Update

    I'm not sure how many of you have heard about the new law going into effect with Youtube where you have to mark your content "for kids" or not. Despite the Youtube kids app, it seems they now want to make sure content on the regular Youtube app is marked too because Youtube was fined awhile ago for collecting data from children. This puts the burden on the video creators, and can result in large fines if videos are found to be mislabeled. Marking a video "for kids" affects people who monetize mostly, but also makes the videos unsearchable and people can't interact with them or put them into playlists. The problem comes in with what is considered "for kids". The rules are really vague, and talk about anything that "appeals to children" (like characters and music).

    So this creates a grey area in my opinion for a lot of Disney Parks content that includes characters and songs familiar to children. I don't make my content for children, (and most my viewers seem to be 25+ by my channel's analytics). But the majority of my content is family friendly. However on occasion an adult joke or beverage is featured in the same video as a character meet or fireworks show, so I'm unsure how to label a lot of mine. I also don't want to make them unsearchable. I started the channel for friends and family, but it is nice to see others enjoy the content.

    As a really small channel, I can't help but think this might not affect me at all. (For instance Youtube labeled a lot of bigger channels videos for them, but this didn't happen for me). But I don't want to risk a huge fine for something that doesn't even make money. HHN videos, and anything outside of Disney parks seem safe. I think most my Universal videos should be fine too because we don't do character meets as often there, and some of the properties are more adult.

    But you might notice some changes to my channel, which shouldn't affect most newer videos, and won't go into effect until the new law does in Dec. I've marked some of my older videos "private" just until I see what happens and if anyone gets any clear answers about what's okay and what's not. Videos that were full of characters (like the DL ones), or were for certain shows (like the Frozen Singalong), I marked "for kids". These can still be viewed from my TR's because I embedded the videos, so it shouldn't affect anyone on here. But they might be harder to find, and if I upload a new one without the link being provided it might be harder to find.

    As a result of this I'll probably be vlogging less in the Disney parks when we go (but still taking pictures and notes), since it seems easiest to just avoid filming those things in the first place. I can probably still do food reviews without issue (for non character meals at least), and I may post more to Instagram or even try IGTV. Our next two trips will involve Disney Parks, but not in a huge capacity so it probably won't be too hard to avoid.

    I've also changed around some titles and covers on the videos, and finally I changed the name of my channel to my name. It's something I've thought about doing before as Josh really isn't making videos of his own so it's not really a joint channel, and I do make non theme park videos too, and I have wanted to try other kinds of videos. But I also figured a Disney channel name might get me flagged as a kids channel. However fear not @Tracy161 my intro will stay the same! (With the addition of my new channel name).

    Love your Disney Halloween Party pics.....it looks so beautiful and yes, I’m sure you were both happier than the picture shows.......lol......

    But the Pirates boat.....oh my.....it was funny it looked like you all agreed before hand to look not very happy....well, apart from that one guy.....there’s always one!!

    Very odd about the woman asking if you needed help.......

    As for HHN.......I’m a fan of the opening weekend.....although you’re right about the first Friday‘s being mobbed out!!! That was among our busiest nights last few years......but.......I’d still vote for it.......there’s something about the firsts of the event......and over the next nights you see it progress......but if you do go with EP for all your nights, it’ll be fine......:thumbsup2

    Enjoying your report a lot!! You do both look like you’re having a blast with some lovely pictures.....

    :sad: I totally get it though. I'd have the same reservations and concerns. I can understand the desire to make content safe for kids, but... the new policies also don't seem flawless to me by any stretch. I don't like the inability to search aspect at all. I guess we'll see how it all plays out.

    It's true. One of the things I was most disappointed about this year was not being able to go for opening weekend. I believe I requested our week thinking it'd be the first without knowing. Having that extra Wed night was nice, but I ended up requesting the first week. Both for HHN's opening weekend, and because there's a convention I want to attend in Orlando that weekend. Now hopefully I'll get that one, and maybe I can request the Thurs it opens on too.

    Enjoying your report a lot!! You do both look like you’re having a blast with some lovely pictures.....
    Thank you!

I guess we'll see how it all plays out.
    I'm hoping with the backlash that maybe there'll be some clarification or changes before it actually goes into effect, but I'm not sure. It's really confusing, and I feel really bad for people who made a living on Youtube since this affects so many different little niche communities and hobbies. I feel like I shouldn't be upset because it isn't a huge deal to me if people can't find them (since I don't make any money off them), but it's just really disappointing since I put them up as a hobby/for fun, and now it feels like I have to take everything super seriously and make sure I don't film certain things and think about how to classify each video. (Because each video leaves me with different questions. Like when I'm at Universal would Harry Potter make it a kids video? Or no because it's not animated? What happens if in the same video I have a character meet but also drink a margarita? Do more PG13 movies like Star Wars and Marvel movies count as "for kids"? Do firework videos count because those songs are "familiar to children"? etc )

    I also don't want to take down videos, but I will if I have to. I don't really care about some of the missing aspects, but losing the search or even have people see them in their feed without looking for them and then not being able to interact with them is the worst for me. I had some review videos get relatively popular (I assume because of the search function), and though it wasn't the intention it was nice to think maybe they helped someone else plan. I'm seeing a lot of worse case scenario stuff about it and someone even said that private videos would be subject to penalty too? I'm hoping it's not as harsh as they say, since people are already deleting their whole channels because of it. None of my videos got marked by Youtube, but I'm not sure what that means since I'm sure small channels aren't their biggest priority. But there's quite a few with character interactions that I could see falling into "for kids" with the new rules.

    Good point.
    I'm trying to take "Disney" out of a lot of titles too which idk if that would actually help. Honestly, it'll probably just make videos harder to find when searching too even if it means I don't have to mark them "for kids". :confused3

    Phew! :thumbsup2 THANK YOU!
    :thumbsup2

    Sounds like a fun Halloween party! It's always so hard to do everything you want at these events but sounds like you got a good amount accomplished!
    It was! I think I would've tried some more snacks if we had time :rotfl: But I do think we got to all the good ones, and we got pretty much everything we wanted too accomplished except meeting the Gravediggers.

    I remember this! He missed one of the bus stops at the resort and almost ran over a curb/bushes which is why he slammed on the brakes and then backed up to go the right way, LOL.

    I definitely repressed this memory :laughing: But now that you say that I do kind of remember that. We ended Mickey's Not So Scary with the scariest bus ride ever. :rotfl:

    I was super far behind and quoted like a billion things so sorry for this marathon reply lol.



    I don't know either. Was he hoping despite being on my way to a theme park I'd be like "You know what sir you're right, I am too old for this!"
    Thank you sir- I have seen the light and will immediately cancel this vacation and go home.

    Paper straws and Butterbeer work terribly together btw.

    Ugh that is the most accurate thing I've ever seen lol

    Most importantly....Halloween decorations!
    Super far behind here but I love them.

    Oo I love this!

    I promise you we didn't cause any mayhem :rotfl: that's just the name of the lagoon show at HHN
    :rotfl: :rotfl:

    I liked the little show, but wished there was more little things like that in the scare zone.
    I agree.

    I know they have a "zombie kill of the week" show that rotates characters, but somehow that was never going on while we were there.
    We never saw it either. :confused3:confused3

    For some reason they gave us these little arcade looking tickets when we got in line this night. They served 0 purpose whatsoever but I guess I felt the need to document them.
    They gave us those last year at the Halloween house and were super serious about us giving them back. Then this year we didn't get them at 1000 corpses but they asked us for it when we got near the front and when we said we never got one, they just said ok. I don't get it either lol

    I love the Killer Klowns part, but honestly the whole show is good, and it was never crowded.
    Agreed. It was great!

    then she told us we couldn't add him... just no. Like she was hoping we wouldn't ask again if she said no. The flat out "no" to what I thought would be simple thing kind of surprised me.
    So strange. I would've expected that to be a pretty easy thing.

    Then we went on a safari that featured a commentary by the woman behind us. She would exclaim to her family anytime she saw anything at all, and then repeat something the driver had just said.
    Oh my lol. That would drive me nuts.

    My favorite thing they had added this year, was the Appleseed Orchard Cider Bar so of course I took the most terrible picture anyone's ever taken and then didn't take any others to show you how nice it was .
    Mine too and my pictures of it are also awful lol.

    Also I was not planning on calling bathrooms, refreshers
    :rotfl::rotfl:

    Also a little poll for our HHN trip (because I'll have to pick the week for that too):
    Would you pick the first week it's running or the second?
    This is late so I'm not sure if it matters anymore lol but I say the 1st week especially since it's an anniversary year!

    a lady (just another guest), randomly asked us while we were waiting for the elevator if we needed her to show us where anything was.
    :confused3:confused3 How strange. I could see my DBF saying yes and then coming up with the most random things for her to show us lol.

    My favorite guy in the Pirates queue was this guy :rotfl: He screamed when he saw this man's light up necklace and said that it was sorcery.
    :rotfl::rotfl:

    Samantha's favorite "the man who needs a key but could easily walk out of the room" was another returning character.
    :rotfl::rotfl: I thought that guy was hysterical also.

    THEY NEVER PUT THE GHOST IN!!!:rotfl:
    :rotfl::rotfl:We have one from HHN where they didn't add the zombie in so we look completely ridiculous lol.

    Also a Youtube Update
    Thank you for the explanation. I was watching a Tim Tracker video today where they briefly mentioned it and I wasn't really sure what they were talking about. I get why youtube is doing it but I feel like there's gotta be a better system.

    You are right sir they are not for adults, which I am. I have now grown up and must leave :rotfl:

    Ugh that is the most accurate thing I've ever seen lol
    I hateddd all the paper straws, so many gross mushy messes and wondering if it's even worth it to finish a drink.

    Super far behind here but I love them.
    Thank you!

    I've heard they were every 10 mins, but also don't know anyone who's seen it so did they even happen? :laughing:

    Lol same here.

    So strange. I would've expected that to be a pretty easy thing.
    Me too! I was very surprised by her reaction, and almost wondered if she didn't feel like looking into it further. When we continued asking/explaining what we were trying to do she called someone and suddenly it was possible.

    Oh my lol. That would drive me nuts.
    It was so funny but so annoying at the same time.

    This is late so I'm not sure if it matters anymore lol but I say the 1st week especially since it's an anniversary year!
    I ended up putting the first week, because we found something else we want to do that week too, and I'm hoping I could get an extra night in by getting Thurs off too. So I submitted it, and I find out next month ish which week I got.

    :rotfl::rotfl:We have one from HHN where they didn't add the zombie in so we look completely ridiculous lol.

    No problem! It's something I've been a little stressed about even though I'm a smaller channel. Frankly, with their content I thought it'd affect the Trackers channel more, and felt like they didn't really go into it enough. I know they were trying to remain positive, but I would think they would have to make major changes because they do character interactions a lot, but I also realize with the baby coming they have more on their plate than just that. I was kind of hoping to hear what they planned to do because it would help me decide what to do.

    Yeah before we went, I kept seeing posts on facebook about people bringing their own straws and I was thinking it was dramatic. Then suddenly I was wishing I had my own straws lol

    I've heard they were every 10 mins, but also don't know anyone who's seen it so did they even happen? :laughing:
    :rotfl: :rotfl: I feel like they were a lie lol. We sat in that scare zone for like 15-20 minutes at one point and it definitely didn't happen.

    Yeah they brushed over it so briefly which surprises me after your explanation cause they clearly make their living on youtube. Maybe they already know something we don't?
