Photo TR: Walt Disney World

Postby Erik Johnson » Sun Jan 29, 2006 11:31 pm

We just got back from a weekend getaway to Walt Disney World. Since the Annual Passholder preview was still going on for Expedition Everest, and that Leanne wanted to ride it herself, we spent the weekend down in Orlando. Enjoy the pictures!

Leanne was really excited to ride Everest that day.

Notice anything new added to this sign collection?
DSC06321.JPG
This was the line just to get into the Everest area. It was very crowded that day.
DSC06322.JPG
The standby line was very long. And all the fastpasses have been handed out.
DSC06324.JPG
100 minutes in stand-by. But then Leanne suggested something that earned her about 50 points.

While I think the museum is cool, Leanne did say, "Screw the musuem, lets get single rider passes!"

Here you go Wes, according to that piece of tape, its a Mac at the fastpass entrance.

My Dad had that exact same printer, I believe, around 15 years ago.

Dang it, I forgot to bring my underwear.

This is the "sad and pathetic..." version of EE.
DSC06336.JPG
A group of Cast Members were showing everyone how to properly use the "chicken exit".
DSC06346.JPG
Leanne could not care less about not sitting next to me. She was getting a new credit.
DSC06348.JPG
She still has about 15 credits over me.
DSC06350.JPG
Yes, we are sad and pathetic as well.
DSC06358.JPG
Our 2nd ride only took us 5 minutes to get through the single-rider line...where did everyone go?
DSC06359.JPG
I even got to sit on the very front row from the single-riders line. Even though there were about a 1000 people behind me.
DSC06362.JPG
This was the first time I have seen another train in the helix while going up the lifthill.
DSC06363.JPG
The front row will make a pretty cool POV video. Nothing obstructs your view.
DSC06364.JPG
Looking backwards from EE's highest point.
DSC06351.JPG
Time for more Yeti items.
DSC06352.JPG
Now that's a huge Yeti.
DSC06354.JPG
Cowabunga Yeti.
DSC06353.JPG
More EE items to suck away your money.
DSC06337.JPG
Leanne did remember to call 1-407-WDW-DINE to make our Mama Melrose's reservations for Sunday.
DSC06367.JPG
After three rides on EE, we decided to walk around a little bit.
DSC06368.JPG
I wonder if anyone will notice us "borrowing" all this money to help fund our east coast trips this year.
DSC06369.JPG
I had no idea Japan had an Animal Kingdom.
DSC06370.JPG
Leanne was really happy on trying out a new coaster on her birthday.
DSC06371.JPG
At least this guy is honest.

DSC06380.JPG

Erik your TR's are always awesome!

It's no wonder why Mission: Space's line is always so short. They do such a good job of freaking people out over a flat ride that isn't as intense as ones at the county fair.

It kind of annoys me that they do that. I really think more people would enjoy it if they weren't scared away.

Great TR again, Erik!

And you are pin traders too, huh? Hmmm. ::)

How do you do it with pin trading? Do you wait for peeps to come up to you for trading, or.....?

When I did it in DisneyParis, I would scrutenize (sp?) cast members' lanyards and trade pins with them, but I always allowed the kids to come to me, if they saw me with my lanyard on.

Since sometimes I look like "Santa in the off season" (hah), I actually had a few children there at DLPR asking me "what character I was"? A bit wierd, but I told them I was just a Pin Trader like them - they accepted that - and I usually gave them a "bonus pin" and thanked them for asking that question, heh heh.

Hopefully, I ended up being a memorable part of their DisneyParis Adventure. :)

Cool photos. And you know what that huge line means at AK? A shorter line for Dinosaur!!!! :br

The Mission Space warnings are out of control. I too think they end up freaking out people that would be fine on the ride. Telling people "you might get sick", "you might get sick", "did we mention that you might get sick?", "oh yeah, don't forget you might get sick" every 30 seconds or so probably discourages a lot of people.

Ok time to finish off the Epcot pictures. To answer your quest Nrthwnd we really do not trade pins very often. If we do, its usually with a Disney CM.
