Disney Day #1

Despite the forecast of rain, it turned out to be a really nice day. It was overcast all day but with the breeze (windy at times) it kept the heat down and kept us cool. While we were watching the Jedi Training Academy show it did lightly sprinkle a bit, but it wasn't enough to even care about. It was barely spitting. The boys had a good view of the show once all the kids who were not picked to be on stage left. I guess if they weren't picked, then the parents didn't want to stay and watch? It was quite amusing when Darth Vader came out and it looked like he was looking our way, Logan backed away! LOL Ian backed away when he saw the Storm troopers. When I asked him why, he said he thought they may shoot him. He loved the show though.

It was more crowded than I thought it would be. I'm hoping tomorrow will be the travel day for most people. We've gone the past 2 Labor Days and it's been very low crowds so we're crossing our fingers for tomorrow. We didn't get to do the Toy Story ride. By the time we got there around 11ish, all the fastpasses were gone and the wait time was 80 minutes. Later in the day, the wait time was 110 minutes! Ouch. Even with the crowds, other shows weren't too bad. Dh and the boys saw Indiana Jones while I went to feed Bella (it's too loud at the show for her). Dh and Logan hopped on Star Tours which said 25min wait but they were in and out in probably 15-20. Logan and I went on the Tower of Terror (my fave ride!!!). The wait time said 30min and we were done way before that. We maybe waited 15min? So times were off but in a good way! The TOT was awesome as usual. I got to sit in the back and if you ever get to go, you must sit in the back row. I swear you get more airtime when you drop. It's the best!

We got to see the Pixar Block Party Bash and I wasn't all that impressed. I'd much rather see a parade with the floats going by slowly so I can see everything. This all bunches together and stops in sections of the parade line so you really only get to see one float in front of you. The others quickly pass you by before stopping in front of *their* crowd. It's hard to explain. You can kinda see what I mean by watching THIS. Here's a cute video of both of my boys dancing at the end though. I was surprised that Ian got up and danced.

Oh did you want to see more pictures? Of course I have them!

Look at these teeny little Crocs I tried on Bella. Aren't they adorable? They are the smallest size available and they are still way too big. She has little feet I guess. I didn't get them though. I was afraid she's just kick one off and poof- there goes $$.

Thankfully my kids so far have inherited our adventurous nature when it comes to rides. They both love roller coasters too!

Looks like a fun day! See, I knew I wasn't the only one who'd be amused by the tiny crocs! LOL.

What a fun day! I'm loving those Crocs on Bella! I'm sure it was hard to resist buying them. Have fun tomorrow.
