Re: WISHES

I saw that the Disney Parks Blog is going to live stream Wishes tomorrow night (Thursday 3/23/17) at 8:55pm EDT. I plan on watching since it will be the last time we will be able to see it. However, I agree with cy1229...whatever replaces it will likely blow Wishes out of the water. I imagine Steve ...

Re: March Madness Brackets: Subsonic Group

Woo hoo! I was able to successfully create a bracket! I will be at the mercy of my phone to keep up on it though...we currently don't have wi-fi at home and I can't always get to the library. I was able to download the app on my phone so I can check on it, but I won't always get to check in here. I ...

Re: First trip to the parks

My first trip to Disneyland was around 1980/1981 and I was 2 or 3 years old. I remember very little from that trip...except that Mom told me that I was afraid of pretty much everything except the Haunted Mansion (talk about foreboding), :hm_ghost: and Skull Rock creeped the crap out of me. I believe...

Re: Weekend Topic: D23

So we find ourselves in the middle of a move, and right afterward I will be heading home due to family issues, so once again I have to put the blog in hold. Eventually I'll get these posts written...

Re: Is new fireworks show too complex?

I had to keep picking my jaw up from off the ground so it wouldn't be trampled on... :shock: It was phenomenal! More now than ever am I honored to have met the creative genius behind this work of art! I do kind of wish we had a better view, but even with the mediocre view we had, the show was specta...

Re: Weekend Topic: D23

My sincerest apologies for not getting to the blog posts yet. Almost as soon as we got home, we were thrust into another crappy situation...story of our lives, don't you know...and I truly haven't had the time to sit down and write the posts, let alone go through the pictures (but I wanted to share ...

Re: Is new fireworks show too complex?

We only got to see this show once and we were at the Town Square end of Main Street. As awesome as the show was, I really wish we could have seen it a few times to get the full effect, as well as watch it from the other locations. We had several Cast Members tell us that IASW is their favorite place...

Re: EPCOT Imagination

Fortunately/unfortunately, I was only able to ride the original once, but at least I was old enough to [somewhat] remember it. I didn't return to WDW for 6 1/2 years and had JUST (by a few days) missed the permanent closure of the original attraction. (Even more depressing was finding out years late...

Re: Weekend Topic: D23

I should also mention: If you are Facebook friends with me, I likely won't be posting much of anything for the duration of our trip for 2 reasons. 1) Security (yes, I'm a crazy paranoid person who doesn't like to share too much personal stuff on FB) and 2) Cbog40's parents don't know we're coming......

Re: Disneyland WITHOUT Kids TR

Ah, ok...I know where that is. We're staying not too far from there (and across the street). Too bad about Fantasmic...even though it's similar to the WDW version, there are notable differences that make the show more unique to DL. The first time we saw WoC, we were rather underwhelmed by it. But we...

Re: Weekend Topic: D23

It's in Anaheim. We will be hitting up DLR the day prior to the start of the Expo, then following the Expo, we will be heading to visit our parents for a couple of days before coming back home. It's going to be crazy busy and we will be exhausted, but it will be totally worth it!

Re: Disneyland WITHOUT Kids TR

Ok, so I posted my response before reading the rest of the TR... Glad to know I am not the only one who isn't a Matterhorn fan...we haven't been on it since they updated the cars (there used to be 2 large seating compartments per car...it was more comfy for those with long legs). I definitely agree ...

Re: Disneyland WITHOUT Kids TR

Looks like you had a blast! I can't wait for our trip next week! We only get to go for 1 day, but it's been 2 years since we were last at DCA, and 4 years since our last trip to DL. :shock: I know they updated WoC for the 60th, and Neil Patrick Harris was added. I'm interested in seeing how the rest...
