Did your inlaws like Mama Melrose?

Also, how bad is Tower of Terror?

Oh those Osborne Lights are amazing. I WILL see them someday. ;) Did they happen to do anything special to commemorate Jennings this year as he has passed away? I was hoping they would.

Your pics of CSR are making me want to go there soooo bad. I love that place.

How awesome that you got an ADR for Sci Fi-that's one of our favorites too. :)

All in all it seems like it's just been a wonderful family trip. :)

That's really cool. I'm glad they did something. He was quite a generous man known for giving away as much money as he made. His kids are following in his footsteps.

It sounds like you had just an absolutely wonderful Disney day! Getting into DHS early- what a perk! I can see why Eric loved this trip, it sounds so fun and magical. You are really making me want to see those Osborn lights!

Deb- the ToT is one ride that BOTH of my kids totally agree that they NEVER want to go on again, LOL! I actually didn't think it was that bad, but it scared the bejeebers out of both of them (and the pee too, as we had to run to the bathroom right as soon as we got off for poor Donovan).

I think it depends on the kiddos-Robbie has loved that ride since he was old enough to go on it. He got nervous last time but LOVED it.

I think you have to judge wether your kids are ones that enjoy ghosts, twilight zone, & faster rides b/c that is all in TOT. Robbie happens to love Ghost Hunters, SyFy & anything his brothers will go on so it was great for him but I saw plenty of kids bailing and I didn't blame them. I wouldn't go on Haunted Mansion at his age so I totally get not wanting to try TOT! LOL

D loves all that SyFy stuff too, but for him, that was not the issue. It was the drops. He was holding on for dear life and as soon as we got off he said "My legs are shaking and I have to PEE!" LOL! So we went right over to the bathrooms. Hannah was mad that she went on it and said she'd never do it again. She had tried to bail out and mean mom that I am, I made her go thru with it because we were getting ready to go into the elevator when she tried to bail and we'd waited in line for quite awhile.

That sunrise is gorgeous!

My friend who's a CM was trying to tell me that ToT is not that bad, it's the roller-coaster-y drops and speed that I dislike, I won't ride Space Mtn., BTMRR, Splash Mtn, etc., she said ToT is just a ride-through with a moderate drop and that there is something to grab onto, unlike that Dinosaur Safari ride in AK which about killed my back.

In peace,
Max
