    20th Anniversary @ DLR Sept 2-5 HEAVY PIX

    My wife and I sent the teenage kids off to school and we went to the resort to celebrate our 20th anniversary with some Disney fun from Tuesday the 2nd through Friday the 5th.

    When we got back the kids didn't want to hear anymore about our wonderful time, they wanted to go! Ok, we'll go back up on Sunday. So we did!

    The park just went into off-season mode and it was nice to walk around in the park with some elbow room. Fast passes also went into off-season mode (for the weekdays) but it didn't matter of course!

    We stayed at the Residence Inn Maingate on Clementine and Disney Way, a 15 minute walk from the turnstiles. We stayed in the studio suite and it was really nice, I definitely recommend staying there, well worth the price. The staff had a bottle of champagne and a anniversary cake waiting for us in our fridge when we arrived. Thanks to the staff for a great time!

    On to the pix- Sorry for the shotgun blast (no real order) Enjoy!

    Wonderful pictures. 2 of them really stuck out. #1 the picture fo the duck in flight on Main Street, excellent. #2 that is probably the best picture of the big hill on Splash I've ever seen. Most come out blurry when you are dropping but this one was clear.

    Thanks SdAl, it seems you are quite the Toy Story Midway Maniac!

    Great Pictures Al!!!

    Sorry we missed you a few weeks ago when we were down. It would have been good to see you and the Missus again. We'll have to hook up one of these days, been WAY too long since we've been able to hang out.

    I agree with aashee, the splash mtn. drop pic is awesome. Great job.

    And happy Anniversary!!!

    Congratulations on 20 years!!!! My hubby and I spent our 20th at DLR back in March. It was perfect. I LOVE your pictures - especially the drop on Splash. I am too petrified to ever do anything but scream and hold on for dear life.

    You were not kidding when you said you had a little elbow room. I think our next trip might have to be the week after labor day.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for all the nice comments! All pictures were by luck, I am an auto-focus, point-and shoot type of guy! LOL!

    We had a blast and on Thursday it was our "Best Day Ever" as we had walk-ons on some rides (got to double ride on Molhulland Madness) and the longest wait we had all day was a 14 minute wait on Peter Pan! I will post our pictures from Sunday (7th) when I get back in town on Sunday. We got fast passes for SM but never had to use them!

    Gregg, you still in Chi-Town? Hope your having a blast! We'll hook up sometime when you get back!

    Looking forward to the "halloween time" at the parks.
