You should definitely do one of the KP missions. Your kids will love them.

The changing back to 180 days for ADRs was nuts. Luckily we were finally able to get through today and luckily we are not ones to book half a dozen restaurants!

As for the back of the bus...I know when I was little and we'd go on field trips at school we'd always want to sit in the back because it was the bumpiest part of the bus. LOL!

Does Bryan want to take all his pics like he's in a police lineup?

Awww!! Love the pics!! We were at HS for SWW on May 22nd. It was a lot of fun. My dh is a big Star Wars buff--it was the first movie he saw in the theater. He was glad to get to do something other than princess activities that day!!

We plan on trying KP. Sam is really looking forward to it this time around.

I'm glad to hear you got what you wanted. I would have gone nuts trying to get my ADRs yesterday. I am kinda obsessed about that stuff. Luckily, we know where it is we want to eat.

I remember liking the back of th bus when I was in school as well. I guess I grew up and just don't understand it anymore.

I never knew there had to be an act of Congress for us to join them at the theater. What's funny if that they don't even sit next to each other! They leave an open seat between them! Apparently, they are afraid of what it will look like if two men go to the movies with each other and actually sit next to each other and talk.

I agree. We need another one. We'll have to see what interests us before we suggest it to them.

Thanks for the compliment! I need to be able to fill the blanks with some Disney memories since I won't be there so soon.

As far as Bryan's pictures are concerned, I have always asked him why he insists on taking them like that. He doesn't have an answer for me though.

Bryan is thankful every time we go that we have two boys. He likes that we can skip some of the more girly things and move on to other stuff. Alisa and I have said that we will have to do a princess meal with just the two of us on a trip pretty soon since we are so outnumbered. Maybe we can do some spa time as well. Alisa?

A look back at our last trip - Day 2, Rope Drop

So, the boys have been hanging out with the boys and My Lisa when all of a sudden…



The stormtroopers come out! The boys became extremely excited, especially Sam. He was the most excited of the four of us. All he wanted to do today was meet Darth Vader. He had never met him, and he knew he would be there. We watched their show on the roof above the turnstiles for a bit, and before we knew it, the CM were opening up. It was time to get in! There was one family in front of us, and they had a stroller. However, they made it through the gate in record time! We go through the turnstiles and are among the first people at the rope.



The plan for the morning? I will get the fastpasses for TSM, and Bryan and the boys will go in search of Darth Vader. We wanted to see him as early in the morning as possible to avoid longer lines later. We were more focused this trip on checking out all the Star Wars interactions on this day, rather than the attractions. We had just been here three months earlier, so we were okay if we didn’t get to see as many attractions.

Well, Sam became very antsy about having to wait this close to the rest of the park and not going in. At exactly 9AM, the rope dropped, and we were on our way.

So, how did our plan go?

We have hours for May!

You can get the May hours for each park in May if you adjust the date on the calendar day view. The last 8 digits of the url are the date (20100501 = May 1, 2010). If you replace the digits with a date in May, the EMH, park hours, and fireworks/parades for that day will come up for you.

May MK hours

May Epcot hours

May DHS hours

May AK hours

I already pulled my park hours for May 22nd-28th.

Thanks for the heads up. I noticed that some nights had entertainment and closing at the same time? None of the EMH match my tentative plans..oh well.

I noticed the same thing. I was confused as to what to do about the hours and EMH scedule before now. I normally look at the specific week for the previous year, but I knew things would be different. I knew Memorial Day would be a factor. This year it fell on our travel week. Next year it is the week after. I am now trying to figure out ADRs now. I need to get with Alisa to figure out our Ohana night. We'll be having a meal for 13 people.

A look back at our trip - Day 2, the search begins

So, the CM has dropped the rope. We began walking with the crowd towards Pixar Place. I get to the fastpass machine, and I get a return time shortly after 10AM. SCORE!

Bryan brings the camera with him on their search for Vader. They run into Jango Fett and a bounty hunter along the way.









Up next, Vader anyone?

Cool pics!! Love the cute SWW photopass add-ons. For some reason they weren't available for me to add to my SWW pics.
