  • This Trip was awesome!!

    First Drove up Saturday Night the March 19th Easy drive all the way down. No Traffic jams smooth sailing.
    Sunday the 20th- got in line about 20 minutes before opening. As they were opening the park Partridge Family actor Danny Bonneduece, (I hope I spelled that right) Welcomed the guests into the park for LOCAL Radio day it looked like, because of all the local stations Obviouslt so all the show hosts including Danny. I didn't realize he had a radio show. Thought I had a photo of him with My wife and I. And the damn battery timer shut down before taking the picture @#@$$%@#%. DOH!!!!
    Oh well, It was an interesting moment. So immediately we went to ride Buzz, upon arriving it was not open yet. DOUBLE DOH!!!(Later we were able to ride we grabbed a Fastpass and jumped in the stand-by line, by the time we were out of our line we could go back with our Fastpass
    So went to Indy, walked right on, Yes!!! It was running great and no problems what so ever. The snake looks great!!! We went on Haunted Mansion next, The elevator to the right. Which I had never been in always the left, I noticed some White paint on one of the Stretching paintings. I hope they aren't damaged.
    Noticed the Lightning sychronized with the Pictures, the Knight by the hallway, and of course Madame Leota, these effects are well done!! I love it!! Seeing her float is a great effect and a excellent improvement.
    Then Splash I did single rider. (My wife likes her stomach right where it is!!)
    I got the big seat in the back two separate occasions.
    The biggest thing I noticed about Splash is that the Lighting was ten times better on most of the characters,this always disappointed me in the past. Especially when Brer Bear is hanging over the water. The paint looks better on the Brer Patch of Thorns. The owl at the end Looked like his head was stuck to one side.
    Pirates was closed most of the morning on Sunday. When we rode it on Sunday night I noticed after passing the jail area the Burning rafters had plastic up there? Is that for Leaky old roofs?
    9:30 Fantasmic, Which really seemed to be out of sync. No Pinnochio, and the Dragon looked like he was having trouble retracting down.
    Decided to head back to my room so I could be ready for the Next day.

    Monday early had Breakfast with the Royalty at the Plaza Inn (I know kids stuff) (But there was a pin and The Buffet)The service I will tell you about later(THE MAGIC IS RETURNING)My wife snapped a photo of Mary Poppins and Bert with me. It was something I have wanted to do for along time. This was AWESOME.
    Then we rode Buzz twice in row, Stand-by which I don't think that happens on new rides too often, I better shorten this up. Anyway, Pretty much rode everything in park at least a couple of time each. Nothing broke down. Took the Walk In Walt's Footsteps Tour, which was good and I learned some new things about the park and some info I already knew. Good Tour My Wife and I enjoyed this. 3.5 hours later.
    after taking the Tour we went to the Blue Bayou for Dinner by the Water, We waited an unusually 10 minutes I could not believe it. My Genie-Jaw dropped on that one. Well while we were about to eat My wife was adding pepper to her food when the Lid came off. Well the CM serving us replaced it no problem. Awesome!! Good Dinner topped off with a rich Piece of Fried Cheesecake YUMMMM
    Anyway I would say, that things are really turning around at The magic Kingdom. This was a great trip. One for the scrapbooks!!
    Had a Dole Whip at Tiki!! Love it!! Love the New Queue area!!!
    the new sign above Frontierland and Tiki are good(Wienies) to entice people.

        I was also there on Sunday as well as last Friday, Sunday, Wednesday and this Monday, 5 times in 10 days! my feet are killin me! It was cool and yes i agree with you TicTocDragon, Splash is much cooler and I am glad they bumped up the lights and added new speakers, I got to ride with my favorite christian radio station DJs from 95.9 The Fish and got mentioned on the radio the following morning, as i heard on my way to the parks again, Splash 101d <broke down> around 4 pm and we did single rider and it broke as we got up to the gates durn! no work on how long it was closed for. Fun night and days, thats my mini trip report, the highlights!

            Awesome, If I lived down there, that would be a Bi weekly ritual.

              Glad you had a good trip! Did you get to meet any of the Micechat members while you were at the park?
              Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
              it's what they are like in their HEART!

                No I couldn't really figure out if they were meeting at 11am or noon at the hub On Sunday. By the way it is nice to see my cats and My dog especially after driving the grapevine home (30 mph in the rain) scary!!

                  I agree the grapevine is very scary in heavy rain. I couldn't believe we made it through the drive during winter 2004.

                    My tires were spinning out a couple of times which is really scary.
                    One extra note I scared off a potential "shoplifter" in the Indy store, the young Teen had a Pin in her Pocket and she(teen female) was trying to shove the backing underneath the Pin display rack by the register, Her mom just stared at me as I said something to the CM. The CM's followed her and made her feel uncomfortable by giving her extra "service."
                    You see unless the CM or an employee sees it they cannot do anything but scare them off. The CM said she warned the other stores about her. The not so unbelieveable part was the Mom in crime. That is getting to be to common, Families of thieves. Sad

                        Yeah, that's true about about what you can and can't say as CMs. We have had to double-check plush, especially those put in strollers. This holiday we had someone try to steal a Princess DVD player, one of our (actually slacker seasonal CMs) follower her (because he thought she was attractive) out of the store and she dropped it in the mall across the way and ran. It was quite funny to see. It's sad when parents get their kids involved or the other way around. A year ago we had a little girl, about four actually say, "Daddy, is this what you wanted me to steal?" Isn't that sad? Great job on your stopping her! CMs love you for it since they can't always see everything.

                        On a lighter note, I'm glad to hear your trip report! I can't wait to go back and see everything for myself. Last time I was there everything kept closing like Splash, the train, etc. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it-- even in the new back seats.

                            I glad to hear the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour was good. I can't wait to go next week. Short lines sound good but over all how were the crowds?

                              Actually the crowds were heavier on Monday afternoon, some rides 130 minutes. I have never experienced this. Pirates line went all the way up over the Bridge to the entrance, So by that time Ijust used Fastpass on a few other rides. Sunday was better. Tuesday morning for Soarin was already 2:30pm for fastpass by 11am. I also to Rainforest Cafe, Very nice place, Food could have been a little more but it tasted good.
