Well, got into the park with dontbecheekin and DOOM BGI a bit after 10:30. Long line at the parking garage but the rest was a breeze, except the guy who throughly checked every inch of DB's bag.
First ride of the day!
I love these pumpkins
I took a lot of pics of decorations, as that was my goal of the day!
We met up with Disney1978, said hi to fabulous SuperStacie and then went off to get HM fastpasses. We went on Jungle Cruise and had a skipper who would have been funny if she hadn't talked so fast.
Noon meet time.
So glad these pumpkins are back out.
No pics of people, sorry.
Then we ate lunch at Pizza Port. busy busy and of course I chose the slowest line! After lunch, Judimouse wanted to ride Space Mountain, so a few of us went the handicapped entrance way with her. Our car was too heavy, so we got pulled to the left side and had to get out of the car then go through this cool room with some mainframes to get back to the loading platform. Our car was rearranged and we were cleared for take off. Yay! Judi bought the pic 'cuz it freaking rocked.
I think she's offering a bounty to anyone who can say what Charles was looking at!
then it was single riders meet time.
It was a huge meet, with most everyone from lunchtime showing up.
Note that dontbecheekin took some of the following pictures.
MAIWL flashes her ring pop and is ready for action.

Pearly band walked by.
Charles found something hilarious.
MAIWL is astonished, this time
Mmm, ring pop goodness
Here comes security, but mosuerscise played it cool while Trekkie Dad acted innocent.
Adam says moooom... i wanna do it myself!!!
Goonie relives memories of the noon meet.
Trekkie dad decides hiding his guilt is a better tactic
Chilling by the well.
Told ya I could do it myself!
Tadpoles in the water
HUZZAH RING POPS!!!
After the meet, we all went to the MOO, except a few who chilled and waited for the others. Then it was a quick sail around the world on Small World. I think we went to DCA next?The day blurs.
but we went over to DCA sometime... that I know!!
I hadn't noticed the flag before.
Candy Corn Acres. I love it. Except there's no REAL candy corn. And I SWEAR there was supposed to be a maze!
The backside of candy corn!
There is farming in my blood, though, so maybe that explains it.
Then it was off to the animation building to see the Toy Story zeliotrope. I had NO idea this was even there. It was REALLY awesome, but after the second time I had to stop watching it.
MCers on the other side...
While some people drew Tigger, the rest of us went on Monsters. The car in front of us was empty, so Roz said "Hurry baaaack, hurry baaaaack." It was GREAT!! Then it was back to DL for dinner.
Some dinners were less appetizing than others.
After, those of us w/HM fastpasses rode it.
Wonder quadruplet powers, activate!
(THANK YOU to SuperStacie for the glow bracelets!)
HMH is my favorite favorite ride, and this was my first time seeing it this year. I was giddy!!!
Bad pic but were these always there?
And are the curtains different than the usual ones?
We got stopped for a moment at the end of the graveyard. Too bad my camera sucks.
Woo hoo!! then it was Pirates!
Then some people rode Pooh while Mel and I went to the candy store
Then another round on HM!!! Yay!!!!
Then we went over to Fantasyland for Pinnochio, then Matterhorn, then Nemo! The Jungle Cruise (BEST SKIPPER EVER!!! Yeah.) and Tiki Room then a mad dash to BTMRR (closed) then to Pirates, where we got on a few minutes before it closed.
At the end of the night... 12 remained. That's like unheard of. Here are some of them:
Yay long long day! Lots of people in the park! Fun times.
