    WDW - EP, MGM - 01/05 - 01/06 - Mice Chat Meet

    Day 1

    With the excitement of the Mice Chat meet and saying goodbye to the Disney MGM Studios name, my daughter and I jumped into the car and headed over to Walt Disney World a day early to enjoy the parks.

    If you would like to see all the photos I took this weekend, please see HERE.

    Checking into Pop Century...








    After getting settled we decided to head over to Epcot as we haven't been there in a few months.



    After getting through the gates I looked up to see a line, I was never so happy to see a line.


    30 minute Wait? Sooo worth it..


    First time around I didn't take to many photos, I just wanted to experience it.




    I wasn't as disappointed in the attraction ending as people made it out to be. I enjoyed the new scenes immensely, I thought they were a great addition. I didn't mind Judi Dench's narration, however I had a hard time trying to enjoy the ride because it felt like she was trying to talk into my ear too much. I enjoyed it but it felt a little over done, the new scenes I have no complaints about however. :P

    I really thought the faceover video at the end was terribly cute but I do agree they need to add something else there.




    We stopped briefly to check out the Jamminators.


    The next ride we hit up was Mission:Space, it's one of the girls favorite rides. Although they don't have many they don't enjoy.


    At the The Living Seas Pavilion they have a dolphin demonstration which I had no idea existed. Since dolphins are Christina's favorite animal, we always stop to see them, the show was a wonderful added surprise for her.






    I tried flash... PSYCHO dolphins! LOL JK!




    Next we went on Living with the Land.

    Who wants some shrimp!



    Saw Circle of Life for the first time, it was an inspirational movie but it was definitely lacking something. LOL


    Thanks to a generous donation from an anonymous stalker, we got FP's for Soarin and went on that next. You know who you are.


    Next we grabbed some dinner at Sunshine Seasons.


    A brief walkabout past the lights.


    One more ride on Mission: Space! the crowds were so light!


    This totally rocks!


    Test Track time!


    The park was only open for about 10 more minutes, so on the way out we noticed some CM's standing in front of SSE and there was no line! YESSSS! One more ride to finish the evening.






    Stay tuned for Day 2! Saying goodbye to MGM Studios!

    Day 2

    We arrived to MGM Studios and stopped briefly to get a Photopass pic for Christina, when the CM saw my Mice Chat badge he goes, "I LOVE Mice Chat!" We had a wonderful conversation and I told Steevil that I would post the photo. So hi Steevil, I really enjoyed meeting you and keep up the good work!

    Meet time! I had such a great day with everyone, I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. What a wonderful way to say goodbye to the old name and bring in the new.

    New friends! (For me anyway) Hey there Matt and Tom!

    Everyone busy at work completing the quiz!

    The Winners! With a total of 18/20 correct each! Go Imaginationeer and TDLFan!

    The Group Photo

    Micechatters have so much say and we continued to say it all day long. LOL

    Our first stop on the retro visit was the Backlot Tour.

    The logo is already painted over. *sniffs*

    Rixter was having to much fun sitting close to the waterfall in Catastrophe Canyon. LOL

    Next up! Muppets!

    We stopped at ABC Commissary for lunch, if you ever eat there I recommend the Cuban.

    While our food settled we decided on The Great Movie Ride where our tour was hosted by Ricky Ricardo. Nobodyhome and I couldn't stop laughing. (Sorry, no photo)

    I did notice though that Dustysage left his mark at the Studios. I had no idea he owned a part of the park?!

    Sigorney Weaver! Before plastic surgery.



    The old queue for the Studio Backlot Tour.

    Ratatouille!

    It was nice to see someone at work, they were creating an Ariel cell.

    Next we decided to take an Animation Class, Rixter pushed for us to draw Pluto because mickeyMaxx likes him so much. Everybody say, "Awwwwww." :P

    I have no idea what Rixter is saying here but doesn't it look like he has sparkles coming out of his head? LOL

    Next a select few of us decided to go on Tower of Terror, I didn't snag a photo but I believe someone else did. :P

    It was about that time we needed to head over to the Streets of America for the Light Ceremony. We were then joined by Jimmybop.

    TDLFan had briefly stopped by the meet but somehow we kept running into him later. His parents were lovely people.

    It was about that time I gave Christina the camera and she went to town taking photos.

    The Adorable couple.

    Cyre was in attendance, always nice to see you hun!

    Jimmybop and BigPigletFan

    PhotoMatt!

    BigPigletFan's lovely family

    Christina took this photo of the baby Jesus, I think I need to buy her a camera for her birthday. LOL

    After the lights, the group split off with half going over to MK to enjoy the last night of lights and the other half going to DTD to eat at the Earl of Sandwich. We had a great day, it was so much fun! I always say you enjoy the park better with people who appreciate it as much as you do and this group was no exception. Thank you for the wonderful day everyone, I can't wait to do it again!


    Ciao!

    Great pics Summer!
    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...
