Silliest overheard comment of the day: “Is there a line?”

I had no idea what was being referenced but was tempted to reply, “There’s ALWAYS a line.”
Oh heck, you missed your chance!! :facepalm:

You could have said, "Yes! On Wednesdays, everything's a walk-on!" :p

The multitude on Main Street was not indicative of a crowded park. We accomplished much this morning despite missing rope drop by over half an hour.

We began with a left turn at the hub.

Yo Ho, Yo Ho!

Party of 2? There’s a 90% chance of being assigned the back of the boat. At least it’s that way for me.

Row 6. Again. 🙄

The upside to sitting in back is not being prominently featured in the ride photo (looking at you, nose-wiper in Row 3.)

I feel for Woody - I was starting to come down with something the day we spent at HS. I don’t even think I stayed 2 hours that day. Between not feeling great AND heavy crowds (it was 3 Jan) all I wanted was to get someplace peaceful. My DD happily agreed to return to the resort with me (she knows when her mamma has hit a wall) and she even helped me do the laundry that afternoon (with grumbling!).
You traveled across the ocean only to get sick?

Hope you bounced back quickly!

What time were you guys at the dock at WL?! My time stamp of our pic on the boat that morning headed to Trails End, shows 8:19am! Could that be your MK boat in the background?!
Unlikely, unless it sat there for a reaaallly long time. My time stamp of Woody on the boat is 9 am.

I think I enjoy Woody!!!
:cautious: :cyclops: :joyfull:

Oh heck, you missed your chance!! :facepalm:

That would have been a GREAT comeback!!!

Hint as to where Woody and I went next.

Woody does not believe the backstory of the different color pavement in Liberty Square. Specifically that the brown path represents raw sewage. Absolutely gross if it’s true....but why the difference if it doesn’t?

Not a single soul waiting to enter the ghostly retreat.

The red rose atop Master Gracey’s tombstone looked fresh.

Playful spooks had interrupted our tour before we got the chance to board a doombuggy.

Proof we eventually got on one!

We made a stop at the Tangled restroom. Frying pan for @figmentfan423 (promise you won’t use it on @Mr Ferret 88 ....he still needs to finish his TR from last fall. ;) )

The Dyson air dryers have been removed from the Ladies room, though Woody said they are still in the Men’s room. Woody also mentioned seeing men vape in the restroom. He said it was a fairly common sight and that it’s impossible for a vaper to be “discreet” no matter how hard he tries.

While on our way to our first FP we checked out the newly-refurbished star traders (note the lowercase s and t ~ an attempt to be trendy?)

B9368385-F383-40A2-90C9-3482B6E6ED00.jpeg

No surprise that the interior is generically bland like the current Disney style found elsewhere. The tee shirt display had visual interest though.

C48DA1F7-6C94-4B84-A499-2AC350554CB5.jpeg

Skyliner shirt in Tomorrowland? Yep, that’s a perfect fit....for 1975!

C6531F32-7B29-428E-9805-790B3CD0CD1A.jpeg

At least the Space Mountain shirt is positioned properly.

Another item for you, @Rista1313!

Now I am going to rant. One of my pet peeves is the wearing of pajamas in public places. Pajamas are for sleeping or lounging AT HOME. They are not appropriate attire for restaurants, stores or theme parks, unless you are a baby. (Is it really that hard to get dressed?) We noticed many people at the MVMCP we attended last year wearing pajamas. (Why?) Apparently Disney noticed too.....because now they are selling adult onesie pajamas. With zippers. Just like a baby’s. :banghead: :greedy:

And glittery “Arendelle Aqua” Crocs are supposed to complete the ensemble?

This Boomer is not OK.

Actually I can make that promise because he's been having some "issues" lately and I'm quite worried about him

I totally do not understand the need for wearing pjs in public either. Why is it even a trend??

I see it quite often at my work. I love when they wear their slippers too :banghead: Every now & again someone comes in with curlers in--no joke.

Thank you for the kitty picture 😊. Although while the last 24 hours at WDW and on the plane ride home I didn’t feel great, I didn’t feel that terrible either - yet whatever I came down with was deemed bad enough by the doctor to get me an additional week of “vacation” (mostly an annoying virus, but I try to be really stingy with germs and not share them at the office so I happily complied with the doctor’s certificate).

I think you’ve mentioned before that a party of two gets you in the back row at Pirates - you need to come ride it over here, because my DD and I are more often than not in the front row... Plus I think our Big Thunder is even better than WDW’s. 😃

Awww I like the pjs at the Christmas party! Since Christmas pjs are a tradition for a lot of families, I assume that's why it's associated with the party. I can't imagine wearing cozy pjs outside in Florida though 🥵

I concur w/ @Swissmiss about Big Thunder being better at DLP. It is pretty darn amazing if you ask me!!

I'm thinking about the more practical issue of how annoying it would be to try to use a public ladies room in a one piece jammie?! o_O
Just sayin....
