We arrived in the afternoon on Nov. 30 via Monorail Blue, our first trip on one of the new monorails. Below us, some Nutcrackers weren't sure which way they should be going...
Then we hopped on Finding Nemo submarine voyage. My kids like to dance to the music at the end of the ride.
We went through Innoventions, where we got to see Asimo for the first time. Upon exiting Innoventions, we noticed it had become dark, and Jupiter, Venus, and the moon were shining down on Space Mtn. (I started a separate thread about this)
Then we tried to see the Sleeping Beauty walkthrough. The line stretched out in front of the castle. I took a picture from where the line ended before we decided that we didn't want to wait 45 minutes.
We returned on Dec. 4, after the kids got out of school. After riding Space Mtn. and Buzz, we headed over to Indiana Jones. However, the vehicles stopped, and for over a half hour, we sat there with a view of the still-rolling boulder...
I thought that, perhaps, as we sat there waiting (and waiting) that the cast members could have at least brought us all free churros. Instead, we received readmission passes. We headed over to Small World. Due to a tour group that was waiting to ride, we ended up waiting just as long as we would have if we had gotten in the regular line. They took our readmission pass anyway. (I really would have rather had a churro.)
I had kind of hoped to visit the castle on this trip, but it was closed. Since we didn't arrive until late afternoon, I don't know if it was closed 'cause they were working on it, or if it was closed in preparation for the fireworks. I had also hoped to head over to DCA to solve my Muppet clues, but we never made it, which means I'll just have to go back before Dec. 16. We ended the night with the fireworks, which were presented at 7:45pm.
