    Our 13 mile trip around the parks @ Halloween Time. HEAVY PIXS

    Our family went to the parks Saturday 9-27-08 to check out the “Halloween Time” and to see how a Saturday would be crowd-wise during his time of year. It wasn’t too bad, though the major rides had 30+ minute stand by times. Still a lot of peeps using the “summer promotion” tickets.

    The parks were pretty with all the Halloween décor up and it was truly nice to see the YOMD not all in your face like it had been. It was quite warm (85°) and I think I would like to go back next time when it is a bit more fall-ish temperature wise! J

    Indy was screwed up when we went on in the evening, it was only loading on one side and the 45 minute posted wait time went quickly up to a 70+ wait. Even with our fast passes it was well over 20 minutes! Please Disney, the summer of Indy is over! Please rehab this monster!

    My wife had bought a pedometer to record how much she walks for exercising so she brought it with for this visit. We arrived at park opening (8am) and left after the fireworks (10pm). Wowzers! We walked over 13 miles and boy, my feet were letting me know! They are still reeling today!

    Here are the pictures I took during this visit. Enjoy!

    SanDiegoAl, first off, thank you for that great report!

    If I'm not mistaken, you had a previous TR for an anniversary trip on the first week of Sept? I was there on those days and I was there yesterday as well so we seem to have an uncanny knack for going on the same days.

    I would LOVE to have your skills on TSMM! I'm not sure if it's your wife or daughter riding with you but they're slightly better than I am at that ride/game as well. By any chance did you ride BLAB? The reason I ask is because on one of my 6 rides there yesterday (sometime during the afternoon), someone in a blue shirt in the cart right in front of me was hitting all of the high value targets repeatedly and so I wasn't able to get points from them. argh!

    Great pix! Can't wait to get back there for Halloween!

    If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.

    LOL! Well I was on BLAB once, but I wouldn't know a high value target on that ride if it bit me! I only get about 100,00ish on that ride.

    My wife is my TSMM partner and we have become fairly good at unlocking targets for higher points. My daughters are getting good as well!

    I am guessing the next time we go to the parks we will trip over you, sibce we are both on the same wavelength!!
