I've been calling him my little Torpedo Duck, the little boogger. And thanks for your kind words on my pictures. As for the meet's in December, we'll be driving up on the 7th, just hanging out at the pool or in the room that night, then we'll have all week in the parks. So as we get closer I'll totally see what's going on with you guys and see if I can drag my family to a meet, lol. Day Two
We started out Day 2 at DCA, so I can conquer my fear of the Sun Wheel, and to get on TSMM.
We made our way around the park, stopping at Soarin' first, with a 10 minute wait, went over to the rapids, saw it was a 10 minute wait also, but it wasn't that hot at 10 in the morning, so I dragged her over to TSMM. We got there, saw that the line was like, maybe half an hour wait, but then, I saw that the Single Rider line was open! So by using the Single Rider line, TSMM was a walk on for us, but I think Karma got the best of us, cause we're standing in line, ready to be loaded on, and what happens?
Yep, the ride breaks down. We sat there watching them unload everyone, then I turned to my aunt and asked her if she wanted to wait, or come back later. We waited for only about 10 minutes. The ride started working again and I have to give the ride designers a big Kudo's. That has to be one of the funnest rides.
Didn't get a picture, but my first timer's score was a nice 108,600, compared to my aunts 38,900. As soon as we got off, I tried to drag her back in line, but it was broken AGAIN
My aunt then dragged ME over to the Sun Wheel, into the swinging line. Now, I can handle things like, roller coasters (as long as they don't go upside down, but she swore she would drag me on that when we go in december), and I love ToT. But I don't do Ferris Wheels.
While in line I told her she better not do any extra swinging on the darn thing or I wouldn't go on the coaster with her. So no, we just had regular swinging. And they stuck other people in with us. Is that customary? It just seemed weird. They where a young couple and you can tell they where angry and that they wanted to cuddle or something. They didn't talk the whole time, while I sat there trying not to fall forward on my aunt. Seriously, why isn't there a belt or at least something to hold on to?
That's me being terrified whilst sitting next to angry guy.
After the wheel of torture, we decided it was hot enough to go on Grizzly, which was a walk on. We rode that twice, and I love going on Grizzly, not only because it's a water ride, but because you do go on with other people. We find the funnest people on these things. First group was a couple with their young girl child, and she didn't like getting wet, and she wasn't crying but she was going 'I never want to go on this ride again!' 'Are we going down that?' 'Why are you doing this to me!' but she was smiling at the end of the ride. Then it was another couple with their 2 boys, and a teenage couple (or friends?) and we had a blast with them.
Got some ice cream then headed back to DL. I did not ride ToT, even though I wanted to, because my aunt cannot ride that or the tea cups ever since she had her youngest kid (my cousins did not come because they had school and work), and I don't like riding them by myself.
At DL we caught the train on Main Street and rode it over to Tomorrow Land, yea, I know we could have walked, but I love the train!
The New Orleans Station was down though, anyone know why?
Yay! Fake deer! It was great because my aunt was all excited and I'm all like 'yea so, I lived in the mountains where deer where my neighbor's for 6 years o.0 -picturetake-'
BTW, Haunted Mansion was down also, for 'beautification', I'm going to assume that means Jack is coming to a HM near you
Now, a little back ground on my aunt. Since she lives near DL, she takes my cousins there for their Birthday's every year. The last time I went was 3 years ago. But I had so much fun pointing out little things she's never noticed before! (Thanks to MiceChat that is) She had no idea what the PFF was, she actually had no idea that the Evil Queen from Snow White popped out over Snow Whites ride, and then a bunch of little stuff, it was fun pointing it out to her.
We hit the House of Tomorrow (or Future, take your pick) and it was fun, I asked her if she wanted to stay for Story Time in the boys room and she didn't, we couldn't get the mirror to work in the girls room, and the sink wasn't working, but the rest was pretty nifty. We sat there playing with the lights, security cameras and stuff like that.
Then it was over to Buzz's Astro Blasters, which was a walk on.
I was rushing because I had people in back of me and my aunt was way ahead of me, again XD Which didn't matter because we got our own 'cars' anyway.
After blasters, we headed back to the hotel, because we where told the following day that the Angels where playing in town, and we wanted to catch a game, more like my aunt did. But when we got to the hotel, we went in to see who they where playing against, and learned they wern't even in town! Darn that liar who told us there where there all week.
So we went over to The Cheese Cake Factory to grab some grub. They have the best food, and the cheese cake, omg. And inside is just amazing.
We then went to the liquor store for some Mikes and Dorito's, went back to the hotel and watched The Republican Convention, Sarah's speech, while America's Next Top Model was on a commercial break, lol. Then we went to bed because she was waking me up early the next morning because we had to leave town at 1 and we had lots of things to get done.
Coming up after a short commercial break, DAY 3.
