    2/17 TR - The Day The Lights Went On In Space

    We really meant to go out to just go on Mr. Toad before it closes for refurb this morning and then leave. However, fate stepped in and we finally won something.


    We couldn't not use them so off we went to Space Mt. first. We got on the ride and a little before halfway through we stopped and the lights came on. I almost didn't take my camera this morning. I'm glad I did. Here's what it looked like from where we were.




















    A push start for the car below.



    Our rescuers to push start us.


    Away we go. The rest of the ride with the lights on. And, the music playing!


    Do we want to just stay in the car and ride again? You bet.


    To the Castle and it's new standards.


    Big Thunder's tortugas


    Watch out for snakes!


    To DCA. The doors open on the ToT


    I should know not to have the camera fused to my face when they take the picture



    Times up, so time for lunch and get the DTD parking validated before leaving.
    Mike

    Oooh, lucky!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Congratulations. Wouldn't mind winning one of those. Great photos.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Score! and great pics.

    Is it just me, or does the newer SM support structure look much more contemporary and stronger/reliable than the old?

    DCA stands for Disney Construction Area. All the Cast Members are themed with hard hats and steel toed boots.

    Lol, I know those guys. We all had that look on our faces when that happened. "We have to run the mountain again?"

    great shots! Timely too congrats!
    Three-time MVP Larry Bird, noting that Bryant has been the NBA's premier player for years, told Sports Illustrated's Dan Patrick before this week's announcement, "When someone told me the other day that Kobe hadn't won an MVP trophy, it sort of made me feel like I wanted to throw mine away."
