You. Are welcome! 😉
So we totally rocked Disney yesterday! I think we pulled a 10 hour Disney bender! We would’ve went longer but we were starting to get tired, hungry and needing a break in the a/c for a bit.
The best part about Disney was the fact that, despite our fears, it was pretty empty. We rode every ride we wanted to before noon. The longest line we stood in was for Big Thunder Railroad, and that amounted to roughly 20 minutes. I think my personal favorite was the Buzz Lightyear ride. I don’t know what it’s called but you get to shoot lasers at alien targets. It even records your score! So naturally, upon finding this out, we just HAD to do guys versus girls. 🙂 . Let’s just say we totally demolished the women. I think my score was something like 565,000 and the highest girls score was 56,000. Nothing like sweet victory! Never mind this was a ride clearly aimed for 8 year olds. Or the fact that I was on full in Call of Duty Modern Warfare assault mode. We still won! And thats all that matters. Chalk another victory up in the battle of the sexes boys!
I also would be remiss if I didn’t mention Star Tours. Two words, absolutely incredible! The only drawback to Star Tours is its in a totally different park from Magic Kingdom. So you either need a park hopper pass or a separate park ticket. Bummer. Other than that, the updated ride is amazing. We rode three or four times and had a different ride each time. The best was Hoth and Naboo. And yes, Jar Jar was in Naboo. 🙂 .
I do have to tell you about the worlds biggest Star Wars prick though. At the end of the ride, Disney naturally drops you off at the store (Merchandising!). Well there’s this new attraction at the Star Tours store called Build a Droid. You basically have bins full of astromech parts (legs, feet, body, dome, Mickey ears) and they are in all different colors, types and styles. You then are allowed to build whatever droid combo you want. Well Aimee had stood in line while Shawn, Sarah and I rode Star Tours again so Shawn could build a droid for he and a friend of his back home. When we got there after the ride, Aimee overheard this idiot at the front of the line mention how he was going to build one of everything. That’s right folks, 25 separate droids for his collection. Shawn literally stood in line for 30 minutes behind this ass hat while he argued with the Disney worker over what colors he was missing. Needless to say, I went to management to rectify this situation before Shawn stood there for hours. Idiot. Still mad at that.
Last but not least after dinner we met up with a bunch of collectors that started trickling in. Mattias, Broc, Steve, Josh Blake, Shane, Gallo, Mike Ritter, Elling, Derek, Gus, BradP and a few others. It was a great time and one beer turned into 3 and 10:00 pm turned into 1:30. 🙂 . And thus starts the celebration no sleep marathon. 😉
I’ll upload more pics later. Once Shawn tells me how to upload a giant batch. Today we are going to help set up at the convention center and then off to Harry Potter world! Keep an eye here and on FB for updates and photos.
See you all soon!
