You are a better person than me. I would've taken pictures. I love people that can interact with the characters but you're right that was creepy.
I really wanted to but I couldn't find a clever way to do it. I agree esp. when it's adults by themselves. I never know what to say--that's why I like having the kids around. I can still see them but the focus is on the kids!! R kept mumbling to me & E looked like she was in a state of shock. It was so weird that I actually felt embarrassed watching it if that makes sense.You are a better person than me. I would've taken pictures.

I was 2 weeks ago and we had extended preshow as well. Most of the others in the preshow with us had never ridden. One older lady of that group was convinced it was because people were not standing directly on their numbers and kept fussing/yelling at her group to stay on their number!!There must have been some kind of issue b/c we ended up in the room with "Mr. Um, Um" for something like 20 minutes. If he told us to move around one more time I was going to scream. It was sheer torture, let me tell you.
So you understand my pain then!! Didn't it feel like it was never going to end? That's too funny!!I was 2 weeks ago and we had extended preshow as well.

And enjoying your report - as I have all your others!
I hope you make it there!! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!! I would be happy staying at French Quarter since it's such a short walk to RIverside.So interesting development: Turns out Dapper Day will be the weekend we come back from the cruise. We were there during this year's Dapper Day but didn't feel like getting dressed up to go into the parks. But this year, we'll be there for the kick off dinner on Friday. Woohoo. I received an email that the convention blocks were ready to reserve so I called this morning. They had a standard room at Riverside for $140 less than the standard I currently have booked at Coronado. But now I'm torn! I'm keeping the Coronado reservation direct with Disney until they release room discounts later in the year just in case the room discounts are better than the convention rate at Riverside. But I'm also keeping the Riverside group reservation in case they don't release good room discounts LOL. So I'm definitely staying at French Quarter before the cruise (first time staying there!) and there's a chance I could be back at Riverside for after the cruise Finally making my way back "home"
It was very good. The nachos were great & everything that was in my skillet was good also. The only reason I didn't eat the chicken is b/c it was thighs & I don't like them. I really enjoy Riverside & it's especially nice when it's so quiet! We kept commenting on how Epcot was pretty empty all day. It was nice!!I've never eaten at Whispering Canyon Café but your meals looked delicious that I might have to give it a try one of these trips! We are big fan of WL and love the woodsy feeling of the resort! I think it's so great that you get a nice walk in during the early AM around the resort before the guests start their day. It must feel so peaceful and relaxing at that time! It's amazing how empty your bus was going to Epcot at that time in the morning which is so unusual!!!
