Today was BGT for us. (Or BGA as some people might now call it.) We had a GREAT day, but it was also kind of despressing that we saw a better run park today than we did at IOA on Sunday.

Anyway, we're at the airport on our way home, so here's a few pics for you.....

Kumba after 13 years is STILL really awesome! And nice and pretty looking thanks to a new paint job too!

Awww....look at the little credit whores. Don't you just want to reach out and pet them?

There is something about the Schwarzkopf's that turn normal boys into insane creatures of random death!

Stacey's in the front thinking "please keep the crazy guys away from me!"

I was at BGT today, too! I saw you on Sheikra and Gwazi. I meant to say "Hi!" but you were on the ride and I was off the ride; or you were off and I was on. =) If you remember, when you waved to the crowd when you were departing for Sheikra, I was the kid with the green shirt waving at you! Anyways, it looks like you had fun, nice photo trip report, and I will be opening my own Photo TR of BGT soon!

Yeah I figured that the operations were going to be better at BGT(A?) than they were at IOA. IOA's operations certainly has been very inconsistent these past 6 months. Its no excuse to have both Spiderman and Flying Unicorn still closed a half hour after the park has been open. I sure hope Tom was able to survive both Gwazi credits. Yeah Julie, for some reason I am still recovering from this past weekend. Thanks for posting those other pictures!!

But it's seriously out favorite WDW park and probably one of our favorite parks in the world. There's just something about it where it's one of the few parks we could spend an ENTIRE day from opening to close, having ridden not a single coaster, and still have an amazing time.


I know what you mean. Perhaps it's the atmosphere of the place, the overwhelming hope it shows for humanity. Maybe it's the awe inspired by Spaceship Earth combined with the whimsy of the Imagination pavilion. Or it could be the power of Illuminations to inspire us to be something greater than ourselves.

I know--it's the smooth, rich taste of ice-cold Beverley. Oh, yeah . . .

I was at BGT for a bit today too. Really just walked around the park while wasting free time I had in between my two jobs.

But, I've been impressed by BGT's park operations the last few times I have visited. I definitely noticed how efficient everything was in November, and have been impressed ever since. BGT is going a very good job with park operations. I wish I could say the same about IOA/USF the alst few times I've visited them.

^^Gyendolynne and I bought our DVD when we went to BGT. It is a good video and they slow mo you through the ride. It's about 2 and a half to 3 minutes long. I don't know how I could post it.

I know Elissa bought one last October as well. I think the brakes smoked quite a bit on her ride.
