I will let the images do most of the talking this time. Not much to say, although there are some decent comments below. Enjoy!

Somewhat of a busy day today, but not at 7:50am lol
I got a lot of pics of flowers and trees so be prepared.
Crowds were really rolling in by 9am:
I decided that Mr. Toads Wild Ride is still my favorite dark ride even above Alice. The funny thing is that I have never seen a Mr. Toad cartoon or know anything about it's history, it's just such a cool ride! (I still have not ridden pooh, that ride is supposed to be a trip and a half)
Right above the Pinocchio exit:

-- More bobsled pics in the "new bobsled" thread
Not sure what was going on here, but they were being supervised:
Can anyone fill me in on what is going on?
Ok, this was actually cool.
I am a big fan of "The Next Food Network Star" and have watched all the seasons. From Jeff's season, he was my top pick, and I voted for him every chance I got. The woman that beat him flopped and her show failed, and here he is, the runner up, and still doing big "celeb" appearances.
His performance was superb, very professional, entertaining, and very informative. He really should have won his show, he would be as big as Guy by now. Speaking of Guy, I got to see him last week, and honestly, Jeff was much much better. Guy is awesome, but he was just doing his signature flashy stuff. Jeff was actually engaging and informative but still managed to entertain the crowd.
Long story short, he was doing like questions and answers. I was not in the crowd that was sitting but I had to say something. I waited till he was done talking so I wouldnt interrupt and he was looking for someone with a question, nobody had one, and it was kind of an awkward silence for like 3 seconds, and I shouted "Hey Jeffrey!" he looks at me and awaits further words and all I say was "I voted for you brother, you should have won! Your show would have been a hit!" and the WHOLE CROWD started cheering and clapping! It was really cool. He was totally appreciative and said "Thanks man, it means a lot, but this is not the last you will see of me!"
I thought it was really cool, he was so so so so appreciative and I really want him to succeed because he is an excellent chef, and an excellent personality, he literally made me laugh out loud like 3 times in the 15 minutes I was standing there, and not a fake polite laugh for the person on stage, I was literally LOL.
I really tried to not eat anything bad all day (Turkey leg my fav, churros, soda, etc) because I am really trying to make DLR a work out regimen for myself. However that does not work when you are getting free beer from the beer garden because "someone" is really cool and fills the taster glass full and "forgets" to stamp the passport if you are cool and talk to him/her about hops.
Back on topic... I tried to not eat anything bad but... when I walked by, it was hot out, and it just sounded good:
I rode screamin like 6 times today (pics were all horrible), and for some reason it just wore me out! I left around 5pm.
Another day MiceChatters, another day.
