I only rode Dinosaur once and kept my eyes closed the whole time...NO shame whatsoever, that's some scary business right there!

I was definitely like Gavin when I was little. I was terrified of Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin at one point...

I think I need to right click and save the "Shut Your Butt" lion good find!

Priceless ride photo. So many great things going on...

I agree that if you're going to only have one treat a day, you have to save it for something better than counter-service cookies! Cupcakes over everything!

Too funny that Joaquin was the one scared of Dinosaur. In reality, I think he was really just scared of Popadon! He does look pretty darn terrified. Way to work it for the camera Popadon!

I love the veggie sub! So good, but why no sweet potato fries? They are the best. I also think it needs a whole wheat roll. Just saying!

Fun update!

OMG, Gavin sounds EXACTLY like a friend of mine in ride lines. Like IDENTICAL!! It's scary. The difference of course is that he is decidedly NOT a little kid. The other difference is my friend usually bails by the time we reach the front.

AWESOME ride photo. Totally a perfect time to ponder what to do next. And your Pop is just flat out

How great that they sent the tour groups a different way. And totally the right thing to do.

Uh oh... crying...
I had to give you the shout out, because it's so true. That sucker needs to be fixed!

Isn't it funny when adults are like that? It cracks me up. Kids I understand more, but adults it's like "what's wrong with you?!"

We decided we wanted it to be an epic photo. Gotta have it that way!

Bahaha, Imma get so lost driving around Disney for the first like, year, itís gonna be rough! You guys took the littles on Dino?! AHHH I would die, heck I die now and I know whatís coming!! Love the ride picture though!!

Yay!! Shout out for Uncrustables!!!

I definitely agree with the minimal treats, I do it to myself, lol, and would definitely do it to a kid, they donít need all that! Lol.




The pink is temporary. It's Anastasia Beverly Hills hair powder. You'll see the next day it washed right out.

Yup, we totally took the littles on Dinosaur. We really have no shame.

I thought of you with the Uncrustables. I totally should have taken a picture of one.

We agree wholeheartedly that kids don't need all that. It creates too many problems!

Those tour groups can drive you nuts; glad they had them go one way and you guys another.

I agree on the treats...one special one a day. Unless, of course, it's me then I have to have several.
Of course Ommi would offer comfort. I wouldn't expect any less from her. It was actually a really sweet thing that I had noticed when we got the photos.

I agree on the treats too!

We just wanted the kids to enjoy their treats, and honestly, they don't need that much sugar. But people shouldn't think we deprived them, we didn't.

I do NOT get all the uncrustables hoopla. I see a LOT of TRs where people are super excited about these. What makes them so great???? I really want to know!

I STILL don't know where that dino is.
We include juice in it as well. The kids stuck with water for all CS meals, and they didn't have a drink until dinner time.

I don't get it either with Uncrustables, but I actually haven't ever eaten one. Can't justify the calorie thing. LOL.

Okay, the dino is in the line at Dinosaur. In the area that most times you don't go. i.e. the queue to the left before you go into the building.

No cookies !?! I'm calling CPS !!!

Oh that last sentence ... littles crying everywhere. Very ominous (womp, womp). Because it is all fun and games until the littles start to cry.
It's hysterical, because personality wise Joaquin is the brave one and Gavin is the chicken, and Joaquin is the younger one.

No CPS!!

It IS all fun and games until the littles start crying, isn't it?!

I'm glad you like it! I'll tell Jeni that you think it's great, she's the one that came up with it.

See, we teach life lessons on a regular basis. That's how we roll. That's why we just make them do things and don't accept no for an answer.

I have to admit that the first time I went on Dinosaur....ahem.....many many moons ago, I was scared too, there is no shame! I'm just a glutton for punishment so I went on over and over again until I didn't close my eyes anymore at any parts.

I'm glad. We tried really hard to give people lots of things to look at in our ride photo that day.

Right?! It's such a waste on CS cookies. It's part of the reason I don't do the Dining Plan anymore. I don't want to have to get dessert at a CS restaurant, I want to make it worth it dang it!!!!! I agree on cupcakes over everything. This trip was about cupcakes. And my trip in January will be about cupcakes too. And my trip in May.........

I know! I was so shocked. And boy, let me tell you. He totally remembered it the entire time. So of course, we used it against him. "Oh, we're just going to go on Dinosaur again!" And then he would get all "what?! Really?! NO!"

I agree completely on the veggie sub. I definitely think that it should be on a wheat bun too. Make it healthier.

Thanks! We all figured we would be a little nutty, which is not surprising. And, we always take the approach of "just throw the little on the ride, dangit!"

I'll have to let Pop know how famous he's becoming on the DIS. At the rate he's going, he'll be DIS famous before I am!

It's seriously a great idea for anyone. And if you don't do it at a young age, they'll just be chickens regarding it when they get older. And that's not okay!

Well at least the kids didn't cry during the ride photo, haha. They actually don't even look that scared! Did you take them on any of the kiddy dino rides? Or just the scariest adult rides only?

Hmm, that veggie sub looks good! It's no Flame Tree, but also not 100 people in your pants, so yeah. I totally agree about the sweets, if I'm going to do it, I don't want to be disappointed because then it's just a waste of calories!

Heeheehee, shut your butt lion

Yeah, the only reason they look scared is because we know them so well.

We actually didn't do any of the kiddy dino rides. It was part of the plan. But, well....you'll see in my next update.

Exactly about the calories. I need it to feel like it was worth it.

Disney is so good at the build-up in a ride, especially Dinosaur, that it's no wonder your poor nephew got upset...my family rarely rides Dinosaur - despite the fact that it's blissfully air-conditioned - because we're a bunch of scaredy-cats Seriously, we all have done it before but we usually decide to just go straight to the exit store and look at the dinosaur stuff!

Great ride picture!! I'm always closing my eyes

Loving you trip report thus far, that pic of your dad with the glow sticks was hilarious. Your family reminds me so much of mine, they would have drug all of us on that ride as children and enjoyed our fear. I am totally planning to use "100 people in your pants" that is some serious heat. Loving it, keep it coming I am totally in!

Dinosaur is really great from a build up perspective. It's always been one of my favorite rides.

Hey, no worries on being scaredy cats. I promise I won't make fun.

Haha, thanks! My Pop is pretty silly. We like keeping him around.

My parents didn't allow us to chicken out of things. Especially if we had never done it. Now, if we rode it and decided we didn't want to do it again, then that was fine. But we always has to try it first.
