OK now I'm really getting jealous of people taking pictures which are works of art. Very good pics, some too incredible.
But...Mr. Toad is an opening day attraction. No fair criticizing it.
And so true about the sorry parade you saw. I would not stop to see it even when I could.
And...sorry for your wife's grief. My wife had a similiar experience, losing her sister then the next day, after we had promised our daughter that we would go to Disneyland, we did so. My wife had a good enough time but there was certainly difficult moments which memories opened up. So glad you had the courage to do the trip.
