I love it, too! I love movies so that might be why.

Reading this made me want to go look at pins on ebay!

I didn't know there was a cowboy version of the Great Movie Ride. I have only seen the gangster. I can't resist the $1.00 pins either.

First of all ...
I did not see Bo until we were leaving... duh!

Secondly did you see the princesses on the horses like the carousel? (Jim Shore) right beside the ones you took a picture of? I thought they were super cute, in fact my girls are getting them for Christmas from Grandma!

After our ride as we were getting off, I heard a lady ask a CM how many miles they walk in a day on that moving walkway. The CM told her that they average 12 miles per shift! WOW! That is a lot! I am still amazed by this.
Wow!! That's amazing. What a workout!

Loved your Spectro pics too. Sounds like a pretty good night overall-despite the rain. Sorry to hear you weren't feeling well Jen! I've already read the next update, so I know you were better by morning.

I've never had the Cowboy either. Or a chick gangster! THAT RULES!


My guess is you saw the characters from Up!

I sure hope you can take pictures in that store because I took DOZENS. It's such a cool shop!

uggghhhhh! What did you see? Tell me! Tell me!

I love your pictures of GMR! I missed it this trip because the lines were out the door. I like it, but I don't love it enough to stand in those lines! In all the times I've done it, I've always gotten the gangster.....except once. Last December we got the cowboy. Our first trip in 2002 we had THE BEST gangster! She was excellent. I'm not sure if I'm baised because it was our first trip. But she nailed the part to perfection. She was a tiny little blond who did the Jersey accent perfectly. It was sooooooo fun!

Glad you guys are having a great morning and curious to see if Jen decides to leave before TSM.

I love the Great Movie Ride too. Wouldn't mind seeing it updated a little as long as they keep Singin' in the Rain, Mary Poppins and Oz. Maybe dump Alien, I've never been a fan of it. Still, I enjoy it, especially with good CMs that are really into it doing the spiels.

I think that there's a point in the queue where some of the line goes to the left and some goes to the right. When that happens, one group will get the gangster and one will get the cowboy. Can't remember which side is which. I want to say that those who go to the right get the cowboy, but I'm not sure about that. I've had both, but I usually tend to get the gangster more.

Very curious about the cliffhanger. Can't wait to hear what you saw.

And I love the Great Movie ride. Just something about those classics!
That's just crazy to me never purchasing a pin!

I also love the GMR -- we didn't get to do it the last trip and I was so bummed. The ending always gets to me, too, I just love it.
I love it too, I can't wait to ride it again in the Fall.

I love pin shopping, so much fun. I am really going to try to limit myself this next trip though.

I knew you would, I think of you often when I am in DHS.

I did see those they are just so beautiful. I was surprised at how reasonably priced there were online when I went searching.

to taking pictures in that store. I always felt like an employee was going to come yell at me when I wanted to take shopping pictures. I don't think the excuse..."But MeMom does it" would get me very far.

I never did get my blurry dumbo photo. Sigh. I WILL GET IT IN THE FALL.

Yes they would have to keep those classic movies. I would be more than happy to see Alien go, that section freaks me out.

You are right that there is a point. I think what happened is that they were not having two trams go at once, we were a single tram instead of having the two trams with the two cm's at the same time if that makes sense.

Great update! My cousin is doing one of the professional internships and lives right behind Hollywood Studios. So now whenever I read about DHS I think of her. Sorry for that random tidbit...anyways, I love all your pictures as usual. And be sure to post pictures of the pins you bought for fellow pin addicts!

I haven't ridden the great movie ride in forever. I need to ride it again soon. I don't even remember which side or sides I have seen. I love pins and so do my kids. That is not a good thing when you don't have a lot of money.

Ahh... that explains it. I've heard that they only do the gangster scene when they only run one tram. Hopefully next time they'll have both trams going and you get the cowboy (or cowgirl) scene.

I love the Movie Ride. I dont think they should change a thing.

I have seen both the ganster and cowboy but DH has only seen the cowboy. I didnt realize they switched out, I just thought they had changed it from the previous year.

You can tell them that. They know me.

Actually, there's a special card that allows you to photograph anything and everything in the stores that you want to.

I'll send you one, as soon as I make it up.

I can't recall a CM ever saying anything to me anywhere, unless maybe I have forgotten. (I'm kinda old, you know.) Usually they move to the side for me to photograph if they feel like they are in the way, even though they are normally not in the way.

LL, I was SURE I'd replied to this post.

You got some great photos in DHS. I've yet to ride the GMR. Not sure why? I guess something had to get cut.

I'm pretty sure that if we wouldn't have been there before rope drop we'd have completely missed Bo. He's a lot closer to the entrance than I'd imagined.

Can't wait to see what pins you got!
