Great shots as always Hanno! I can't wait to see the rest of this report.

It was awesome getting to see you and hang out a bit again. I need to know your secrets to getting the shots in that shark tank.

After our visit to Old Town it was time for an excellent group diner..

Unfortunately (as you might have read already) by this time i was getting pretty darn sick.. and i had no other option then skipping the next day.. and stay in bed..

I can't remember the last time that i've ever been that sick.. and i still don't have a clue on what caused it..

anyway.. i missed some time at Wet and Wild and Epcot..

The next day.. (day 3) it was an all day Disney day..

No way i would skip that.. so there i went..

The following are some pics from a first time visitor to Orlando Disney Parks.. ;-)

Loving your photos as always Hanno!

The shots of us on the Sky Coaster are great. Plus the ones of Dave and Lou on the drop tower at Old Town really crack me up!

Can't wait to see Not So Scary!

Awesome updates Hanno!
The photos from the skycoaster are awesome, I don't think I have ever been that terrified in my life. Glad Lou pulled the ripcord.
Your photos from hallowishes and the boo to you parade were great as well.

As usual I can't wait for the next update!

Hanno - thank you for catching the many faces of the drop tower experience, as well as skycoaster. That version of a drop tower really freaked me out and that was my first skycoaster - always go for the biggest first!!

Great pics as always - love it. Great way to remember such a great week away!!
