Following along! It looks as if you two still had a blast, even with the crowds.
That blue building was the source of much confusion on our fall trip in 2017! We could see it from our room at Boardwalk and had no idea what it was or how none of us had ever noticed it before!Day 3 continued
The end of the line actually ended up being at the top of those stairs that go down to One Man's Dream

Meanwhile my Mom and I went to Starbucks for breakfast.
I had my regular breakfast sandwich and my Mom had this cupcake that was peanut butter or something

I swear to you I have never noticed this blue building before

We figured it must be Aerosmith (and it is) but it will come into play later.
Next up: more HS
That's some excellent planning (and up and at 'em) on your part! Even for a ride I might desperately desire to ride, I could never wait that long!Day 3 continued
Slinky Dog was actually down but they were letting people in the que. In my experience they would not let us in the que if it was not going to open anytime soon so we stuck it out. There was a lot of commotion around us. The people behind us were really mad at their line placement and could not stop yelling at each other about it saying so and so walked too slow. The family in front of us was also arguing and the Dad at some point was like "is this even slinky dog?"
Anyway around 8:00 am they started running slinky dogs along the track - to a large cheer - and at 8:08 am the first slinky dog with people went by to an even larger cheer! The CMs were desperately trying to get people out of line by saying it was closed (before it was open) but it did not work and at this point the line was 180 minutes long. It was 8:08 and it was 3 hours! AND this was EMH ! Not even open to the general public yet!

We left TSL after this. Here are photos of the Slinky Dog line. I kept taking pictures and realizing it was not actually the end.

So weird!! I mean obviously its been there forever but how have I never noticed it - glad I am not the only one!That blue building was the source of much confusion on our fall trip in 2017! We could see it from our room at Boardwalk and had no idea what it was or how none of us had ever noticed it before!
Oh my goodness it was insane!!!!!I think we were in Hollywood the same day when Slinky was down! I couldn’t believe that line either
Oh I agree I feel like I am not willing to wait for a ride more than like 30-40 minutes anymore. It is worth it getting up early if you really want to ride something!That's some excellent planning (and up and at 'em) on your part! Even for a ride I might desperately desire to ride, I could never wait that long!
It was mostly gone yes - but that sounds amazing riding it in the fog - especially in DLP! I am so jealous I want to go there someday!Looks like the fog was gone by the time you got on Slinky Dog? My DD and I were at DLP just after Christmas and one evening it got really foggy as the temperatures started changing - we found that it added a level of creepiness and extra fun on BTMRR because normally you can see the castle lit up as you ride but we could barely see anything further than the ride.
Don’t be jealous - it’s a lot easier (and cheaper) for us to get to DLP than WDW. Plus, the food isn’t very good and many CM are not very friendly.It was mostly gone yes - but that sounds amazing riding it in the fog - especially in DLP! I am so jealous I want to go there someday!
Aww thats sweet of you to say. I cringe every time I look at my phone pictures well knowing they would be way less blurry on my camera You will love TSL!
I hear that a lot. I would still like to go sometime just to say I wentDon’t be jealous - it ’s a lot easier (and cheaper) for us to get to DLP than WDW. Plus, the food isn’t very good and many CM are not very friendly.
