That's great! I remember the girls' first trip - Clara at 5, Sara at 2-1/2. I had no intention of taking them on the HM b/c it wasn't something I enjoyed (sorry!) but Clara had other ideas. She didn't LOVE it but she insisted we ride it. I was more worried about Sara who was younger and had no choice in the matter LOL but she was too young to care.

So far I've been able to take my DS, Sean, on the HM..which I'm thankful for because it is one of my favorite rides! Granted, he is only 18 months old right now and doesn't currently show any signs of being afraid of the dark (which, honestly, I am a bit, lol). I'm hoping he will still go on the ride with me for quite a while!

LOL yeah - part of me wishes it wasn't that hot (basically my hair!!LOL) but it hasn't been unbearable at all, esp since we've experienced some cold snaps at Easter in the past :D Plus a cold snowy winter in NJ - yeah - it's all good! :)

Treehouses are beautiful inside!!! We haven't spent much time in them (yet!) - will get pics at some point too for M'She'll :) Transportation for EMH seems to be the biggest problem but since we're not using the Treehouse bus (we walk to the Grandstand) I guess that's more of a Saratoga issue rather than a Treehouse issue. Don't know they expect buses to get anywhere by Zam in 15 mins or less esp with allthe internal spots at SSR! :(

I had watched someone's video of the updated ending before our trip and I thought it looked very cool so I suggested we ride it. The ending is cute but I had a hard time figuring out which car was ours - it haPpens so fast (the video I had watched had shown the same clip over and over - made it seem longer, I guess LOL)
We saw the new Liotta statue last year which is cool, but we missed the new "musical" queue I saw on the Disney Parks Blog incl the ring :(
Regardless clara says she won't forgive me for making us ride it - she was totally scared during this ride :(
