I'm baaaack! XD *passes out a round of margaritas for everyone and a bottle of rum for the pyrate* Sorry I was away so long guys. Between the Blue Man fanmeet on the 27th, my mini-honeymoon, and the school work I needed to catch up on it's been a hell of a week. I finally got some downtime to post. Glad everyone fared pretty well through that nasty storm though! *yawns* I'm so bored with school right now it's not even funny. :-/ Oh well. only another month and a half and I'm done until the end of January.

SINGLE RIDER LINES! OK I only saw two and one was That Place One Doesn't Speak Of (:P) but still its awesome! The only one I noticed was at Everest. I know test track had one (it was closed during my visit). What other rides have single rider lines?
Honestly... It really can depend. Each time frame can have it's pros and cons. The question is what are you looking for? Low Crowds? Food and Wine? A Holiday Party? (Halloween or Christmas?) Holiday Decorations or other special events? Festival of the Masters? Weather?

Honestly, With so many variables, It's really hard to tell you the BEST time to go without knowing what it is you enjoy the most.


Oh... and Rock N Roller Coaster has a Single Rider line. I think those 3 (Everest, RNRC, and TT) are the only attractions at Disney that have them.... at least... that I can think of off the top of my head. You'll also be able to take advantage of the "Party of 2? Party of 1?" calls in a lot of other attractions.

Over at the Darkside however, You've got Men in Black, Rip Ride Rock it!, Mummy, Hulk, Forbidden Journey, Spiderman.... and in all likelihood... Soon Transformers....

I took advantage of the Forbidden Journey single rider line. Rode it 7 times until it stopped twice during the same run. I decided I had been on it enough.

I'm looking for lower crowds though I can honestly say this past week wasn't busy at all. Just about perfect! Saturday at MK was a bit crazy but we did arrive about 30 minutes before the 8pm parade so I think that was part of it. A party would be a huge plus though. I love Halloween and Christmas! I went to the Halloween party this year on the 30th. It was busy but I enjoyed it. My only worry about my December dates is that I believe it will fall during pop warner so I'm not sure how busy that is.

I slipped past about 20 people in line at Space Mountain (including 2 boys who all but pushed past me in the fast pass lane) cause I was by myself. I also got front seat on Space and Splash when I was by myself though I think that was luck more than anything. Space I enjoyed, Splash freaked me out.

You'll also be able to take advantage of the "Party of 2? Party of 1?" calls in a lot of other attractions.

Disney also has several races around that time, one the end of September, one middle of November. Both coincide with F&W and NSSHP's. Also a race in early January, and the Christmas decorations are usually still up. The January race also attract the most runners also so the crowds might be a little bigger. The race in September and the one in May have the least amount of entrants.

I have not had very good luck in the single rider line at RnR, always seems to move slow. EE has worked better, but I also try for the front row wait line. TT also moves pretty quickly for the singles. 'Party of 1' seems to always happen at ToT.

Well, not so sure on the ribs. They were fine till I laughed my butt off on Saturday night. I am sure they will be fine with time. . .lol. Thanks for asking

I do like the idea of someone else finally having veto or "are you CRAZY?!" power when it comes to Lucas' ideas. My biggest personal hope? We'll finally get the original theatrical version of the original trilogy released in a modern HD format. You know... Sans the added deleted scenes.... A Giant Puppet a Jabba..... And of Course... Han shooting first!
Oh, I was not referring to the "creative" ideas out of his head. . .I was referring to the monetary move. His legacy will live on because Star Wars will live on. . .lol.

I haven't been out see the new Hershey facility for Troegs. I may be attending a banquet at the Lodge in early Jan., so I may finally get a chance to visit Troegs. Also a big fan of their Hopback and Dreamweaver.
When I was there a month ago with a friend we tried the 3 beer flight which we got to try three different beers. I liked the Dreamweaver also. They have a gift shop that you can mix and match 6-packs and you an also pick up cases there.

My bags are packed and I'll be leaving tonight for the Wine and Dine Half. Too bad I have to fly back on Sunday.

Depends on what you are looking for.... food or Drink?

I love the Dragonberry Colada (in a souvenir glass no less!) at the Carribean booth.

the Pumpkin mouse at the Hops and Barley booth is tasty.

Lots of people enjoy the Pork Sliders at Hawaii

And of course, Deserts at the Desert and Champagne

oh! and the cheese soup at Canada.


There is a nice sipping chocolate at the Godiva booth in the back of the Festival center. (If you have a Chase Card... Credit or Debit... You can also access the Chase Lounge at the Festival Center for free Soda and a place to chill...)


The Beer drinkers here can probably tell you about the beer seleciton this year.

Honestly, I'm kinda surprised at how little I ate/drank at F&W this year, but I think part of that had to do with the lines on the days I ended up going.

Can you let me know how crowded it was. I will be down this weekend next year and was worried about how crowded F&W will be on the last weekend.

Hello everyone,
It has been sometime since I have posted on these forums be it from moving multiple times to the difficulty in finding stable employment. But now that I am settled living in Orlando and have an annual pass I wanted to get in touch with you guys again and see how everyone was doing. Too many pages to read everything so if there are any key points I've missed please feel free to update me.

Lets see, the prince is engaged and getting married, his son, Gus gus, is beautiful and his girl is a sweetheart. The Pyrate is currently otherwise occupied with a bellydancer that tickles his fancy, CTnurse is happy to have power. Brocktoon is trying to market his parents out for future DISmeets, the bartender is a bit preoccupied with his school, new bride and the blue man group. The others pop in and out as their schedules allow. Me, well I just did the heart walk and am thinking I need to move away from Florida to once again have it as a vacation spot. Lol. That is an old fashioned nurse.darcy update.
