We usually stay off-site on the first night (after a long drive and the "I'm too excited to sleep") then get to our resort early in the morning . We stay at the Clarion on 192, about 4 miles southwest of the main gate. It has an okay breakfast menu too. This one can be gotten for my Choice points, s...

Count me in Akyreil, DW and I wil...

I have been a pilot for more than 30 years, and the teacup ride still gets to me sometimes :shock:. Small children laugh at me when I tell them. I guess pilots are terrified by spinning out of control. :?

"Always" the Speilburg movie about flying.

"Rocketeer" a Disney movie about flying, and

"The Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy", the original - though I liked the Disney version, the original told more of the story.

During the Half this year, I saw a walker with a shirt that said "Why run when you can walk this fast?" And she was fast too! My DW and I walk/run and we tend to pass the same people repeatedly, sort of like running leapfrog. We did another practice run today (we have another Half-Marathon in two we...

Great pictures, boilers. I wonder if Hans Solo will be there? I need to borrow the Millenium Falcon for a short trip. :D

Hmmm... an UNLIMITED budget...

I'd make Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin actually go into outer space!
To Infinity and Beyond!

or...

Make Space Mountain actually use wormholes to go to Disneyland, Tokyo Disney, Disneyland Paris and to any future Disney theme parks

I dream big 8-)

Thanks, Future Guy. Great pictures.

Flights of Wonder is one of my favorite shows :D . I volunteered at a wildlife rescue service for a few years, and worked with raptors most of the time. This show brings back memories - but I have to drag family members to it :shock: .

My first visit to Disney was 1994. Then again in 1997. Then I met Miss Right and got married there in 1998. Then got married again to Miss Right in 2008 for our tenth anniversary. I will take the 1990s and 2000s again :D

Yea! I am glad you got to go and to finish! I am looking forward to the pictures (isn't it great to race AND take pictures at Disney).

As far as the sickness - I used to say my family never got well from any sickness, we just passed it around until we wore it out.

Wish I could have ran in the marathon...sounds like it was a lot of fun. Other than the COLD weather it was great! I posted a couple of video links earlier in this thread, done by a professional, which gives a good overview of both races. We Subsonic(ers) have at least a few runners and several che...

STAR WARS weekends

I just learned that my next trip to WDW will be during the Star Wars weekends. :shock: We will be going May 29 through June 5. Even though I am a big Star Wars fan, I have never been to WDW during one of these events. For you Star Wars veterans, what are the "don't miss" things to do/see during thes...

Thanks, Len. I don't feel so badly now. We have boxes that have not been unpacked in 7 years. :lol:
