After Shocker-Batman and my grand adventure riding the first sub out of the gate during the Finding Nemo AP Preview, we imagined that our chances of winning the AP Preview drawing for Midway Mania was about zero. But, surprise, surprise, we were selected. But not only were we selected, but again, we received the first time slot of the whole preview!
Now, unlike last time, when we had to be back in LA for work, we had no such restrictions today. So we took a lesirurely morning.
Arriving at the West Information Booth around 11:45 AM, we saw our first sign of the day.
Heading into the park, I stopped by the Cove Bar (which sadly was closed) to take some pictures of the facade.
We then went by Screamin' to obtain a fast pass. (45 minute wait, or come back in 45 minutes? We'll take the fast pass thank you.)
Moving on down the boardwalk...
...and on to the pre-show.
At this point, I told Batman I was waiting for him to take his ear off. But Batman said he had JUST done it. I missed it! So I told Batman I must have missed it. Two seconds later, Mr. Potato Head takes his ear off again, looking right at me. That's some AMAZING crowd microphones you have there Disney! And thanks to the operator who picked up on our conversation. It was very nice of you to oblige me.
Back to the entrance.
I felt uncomfortable making it obvious I was taking pictures of the cast members, so you'll have to do with this poorly composed paparazzi style shot of the new costumes. (Which, in my opinion, should replace ALL of the Pier's cast member uniforms.)
Into the queue! To be continued...
