"Tom Sawyer, you tricked me! This is less fun than previously indicated! Let this corny slice of Americana be your tomb for all eternity!"


That episode was on last night, too! :lol:

Glad you decided to ride the Liberty Belle. It was just one of those things that, before having a camera, I never really thought of doing.

Keep 'em coming!

Went to DHS today with my buddy Torin. Crowds were more than I was expecting, but they were still small. I finally got on Toy Story Mania, and I thought it was great. Really fun ride, but I don't see myself waiting an hour+ for it. We waited about 40 minutes to ride. Coaster and Tower had 15 minute waits consistently.

Notes:
-Coaster was running really bad today. Lots and lots of Vekoma-ing. Also, they were only running 2 trains.
-Tower had some great CMs today. They were really in character.
-On our first ride on Tower we rode the right side and noticed an elevator waiting to go up to the loading area. When we went on again we realized they closed that side down right after us.
-Great Movie Ride was only running the back half (gangster half).
-Mr. Potato Head dropped his ear! We were waiting in line and I noticed he took his ear off, which I heard he hasn't done it much lately. Then I heard something drop and he was just standing there, no ear in hand or head, just looking around until a CM came and put it back in.
DSCF1573.jpg
We parked close. 1-19 is CM parking only.
DSCF1575.jpg
I'm pretty sure I didn't take this picture. I have absolutely no memory of it.
DSCF1576.jpg
The sign is just too damn big to fit in one picture. It's not my fault, I swear.
DSCF1577.jpg
Torin's sister's boyfriend was working today, so we stopped in to say hello.
DSCF1579.jpg
There's no excuse for this to be blurry.
DSCF1581.jpg
The lights are already going up. One half of the street is pretty much covered.
DSCF1582.jpg
There was absolutely no moychindice in this store. I plan on writing a letter to the Better Business Bureau.
DSCF1583.jpg
They're still doing some what-have-you to the Muppets balloon.
DSCF1584.jpg
Then we went on A Tribute To All Nations But Mostly America.
DSCF1585.jpg
You give the Pixar characters an inch, they take a mile. Exhibit A: Cars meet and greet OUTSIDE of Pixar Place.
DSCF1586.jpg
Here's I B SAD's headquarters.
DSCF1587.jpg
We then headed over to Hanes: The Experience.
DSCF1588.jpg
Even for the tiny wait, we opted for the single rider line. Why not? We were in and out in under 10.
DSCF1590.jpg
A marble door? How deliciously absurd!
DSCF1594.jpg
I was told there would be animal carvings on the tree here.
DSCF1595.jpg
We didn't learn our lesson with Millionaire, apparently.
DSCF1596.jpg
"Great" Movie Ride time.
DSCF1580.jpg
This ride will really knock your dick in the dirt. I don't actually think that's a saying.
DSCF1603.jpg
Andy's mom went 2-prong. Poor decision.
DSCF1607.jpg
Hi I'm Woody. Howdy howdy howdy!
DSCF1610.jpg
Clearly Mr. Potato Head has bribed the police. He's standing right there, people!
DSCF1613.jpg
NERD!
DSCF1615.jpg
I like that one of his tricks is remaining perfectly still. That Imagineer needs a promotion.
DSCF1616.jpg
Fallen-off ear shot. Read the blurb at the top for the story.
DSCF1617.jpg
Here's a better shot.
DSCF1618.jpg
This shot was taken about 1 second after the CM went away.
DSCF1619.jpg
Then it started to rain.
DSCF1620.jpg
And rain.
DSCF1622.jpg
And rain. We decided to pack it in. We did pretty much everything anyway. In other news, my camera is dry. Have a good evening.

Torin and I went to AK and Epcot. We had a nice time. We left AK after riding Everest because of the crowds. I decided to shoot in RAW today, and boy was that a mistake. The pictures turned out nice, but they're way too hard to deal with. To see the pictures in a less compressed manner, visit my Picasa kajigger.


Notes:
-Animal Kingdom was crowded for this time of year: half hour waits for Dinosaur and the Safaris, 40 for Everest.
-Epcot was dead. 30-40 minutes for Soarin', 20 for Test Track, 10 for Mission Space.
-We did some new Innoventions stuff: Stormstruck and that recycling thing. They were really good. We were thoroughly impressed.
-The angler fish in Nemo wasn't working.
-I promise to do a non-WDW update one of these days.
DSCF1645.jpg
This update consists primarily of nerd shots.
DSCF1646.jpg
This tree was disappointing. I didn't see any 3 dimensional movies inside of it.
DSCF1648.jpg
I see you, rogue Coke ad!
DSCF1649.jpg
I tried getting a picture of this shrine, but this mountain in the background wouldn't budge.
DSCF1650.jpg
Suck it, temple area! It's a god damn festival day!
DSCF1651.jpg
I'm sorry I got mad at you. Are we friends again?
DSCF1652.jpg
Primeval Whirl is being refurbished to make it better for enjoying.
DSCF1654.jpg
Here's a closer look.
DSCF1656.jpg
Here's an even closer look. Notice the missing track.

Here's the closest look. Notice the missing track up close.

In prehistoric times, it was customary to hang your car bumpers up and put ceramic dinosaurs on them.
DSCF1659.jpg
Then we fled the crowds.
DSCF1660.jpg
Here's a picture I planned on putting at the beginning of the update, making it seem like I didn't forget to take it when we walked into the park.
DSCF1663.jpg
Here's Torin pointing at a license plate instead of a humorous bumper sticker.
DSCF1664.jpg
You can't escape the parking lot photos.
DSCF1665.jpg
I must caption every photo.
DSCF1668.jpg
First stop, Looving with the Loond.
DSCF1671.jpg
That looks dangerous.
DSCF1673.jpg
Is your smeller broke? It smells like peppa up in here!
DSCF1674.jpg
They're potentially finally adding something to this ride.
DSCF1675.jpg
We were very proud of our grade on the quiz when waiting for Turtle Talk.
DSCF1678.jpg
It was time to go Soarin'. Oh boy do I hate myself for saying that.
DSCF1679.jpg
Thanks, Gary!
DSCF1682.jpg
No problem, boss!
DSCF1686.jpg
Taste Truck had a short wait.
DSCF1693.jpg
This is when you go fast.
DSCF1694.jpg
We were going 592 mph at this point.
DSCF1695.jpg
PUSH IT. HARDER.
DSCF1697.jpg
Spiceship Arth was our last ride of the evening.
DSCF1704.jpg
The Epcot Egg sure is neat.
DSCF1707.jpg
This is more of a shot of how steady my hand is than anything interesting.
DSCF1711.jpg
Caption!

Bye bye!

Today Andrew (Swimace) and I took a trip to Cypress Gardens and spent a little bit of time at MK and an even littler bit at DHS. Crowds weren't bad at MK, and would've been dead if we got there before they let the MNSSHP crowds in. We waited about 15 for Splash and 10 for Space, walk-on for Buzz. The rest of the story will be told in the pictures. Also, check out Swimace's TR when he posts it.
DSCF1717.jpg
I couldn't think of a more appropriate way of beginning this than the portable bathroom at Cypress Gardens.
DSCF1716.jpg
Okay, this comes REALLY close.
DSCF1719.jpg
This was a bad omen.
DSCF1720.jpg
Believe me, you don't have to ask. They'll remind you about 10 times before you leave.
DSCF1721.jpg
Modern technology is bullshit!
DSCF1722.jpg
Ewww...
DSCF1723.jpg
Here's where you see where The Starliner goes into its show building.

Holy balls I took a lot of pictures of this ride. I'll spare you the scrolling.

Clerks: The Ride.
DSCF1730.jpg
3 out of 4 hurricanes agree that this ride exists.
DSCF1732.jpg
So here we were waiting for The Swamp Thing, and the ride operator was just sitting there...
DSCF1731.jpg
Until the Power Surge ride op came over to operate it with her. WHAT?!
DSCF1739.jpg
There's our pal Andrew.
DSCF1740.jpg
I hope you didn't forget what Andrew looks like, because you're about to get a fist full of him.
DSCF1748.jpg
BOOM!
DSCF1741.jpg
Here's the The Swamp Thing zero car.
DSCF1749.jpg
I wonder if the person making the sign questioned whether to put the word "enjoyment" on it.
DSCF1752.jpg
What's not to love about this park? Oh. I think I need to rephrase that.
DSCF1753.jpg
This is obscene. I was so offended I didn't take any pictures of us leaving!
DSCF1754.jpg
Oh my. That's much better. Time to relax.
DSCF1755.jpg
OH MY GOD GET OUT OF THE WAY. THIS IS HORRIBLE.
DSCF1758.jpg
OH MY GOD WHERE ARE WE? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?
DSCF1760.jpg
IS THAT A ROBOT? THAT'S A ROBOT, ISN'T IT?!
DSCF1761.jpg
IT HAS INFECTED THE MAIN BUILDING. SOMEONE SEND HELP.
DSCF1769.jpg
I...I'll be right back.
DSCF1764.jpg
Oh my. That's much better. I guess we're in the Magic Kingdom now.
DSCF1771.jpg
I sure learned my lesson.
DSCF1773.jpg
Isn't this delightful? They use these very same vegetables in many of the restaurants in Epcot!
DSCF1774.jpg
This isn't such a good neighborhood...Lots of...Y'know.
DSCF1775.jpg
The projects...
DSCF1778.jpg
Jumpin' million-dollar rabbits...
DSCF1780.jpg
Waterfalls...
DSCF1781.jpg
We got wet some.
DSCF1783.jpg
It sure is, Japanese rising sun!

Your cadaverous paler portrays an aura of foreboding.
DSCF1788.jpg
So does his.
DSCF1789.jpg
And hers.
DSCF1792.jpg
This ride orbits astros!
DSCF1793.jpg
Oh sure, don't blur the photo that would be amazing blurry. Thanks, camera!
DSCF1800.jpg
Don't jump!
DSCF1801.jpg
Whew. They ended up walking into the sunset.
DSCF1810.jpg
Then we teleported to the Studios. Bye bye!

Haha, I don't remember it going quite like that, but I guess I'll just take your word for it.

They were walking over the Splash Mountain bridge and I saw their Waldameer polos so I stopped them and said hello and how awesome RF2 was on the Behemoth trip. They also found out today about their Golden Ticket. They seemed happy.


Great photos.

Curious. On the Waldameer website's blog that they were looking at a potential new ride for Waldameer on this trip. Don't suppose they gave any hints on what they were looking at?

Waldameer is quickly becoming a favorite small park of a lot of people and we're all anxious to find out what they're getting! lol
