Did you hear anything new about the status of Steel Dragon while you were over there?

Make sure to do Splash mountain, too, if just for the queue. And if there's no line, walk slowwwly through the queue. It's the height of layered atmosphere.

I love their critter country.

If you can, get a fassa-passa for Pooh before you do anything else (If they're not all out by 6pm), it often has the worst line in the park, besides the line for Kettle Corn and the line to get into the Winnie the Pooh shop (not kidding at all)

Also, if you eat dinner in the park eat at the Queen of Hearts banquet hall, and have yourself an unbirthday cake for me. Blue Bayou is nice, too, but you can do that at Disneyland. The Banquet Hall is a one-of-a kind Disney experience.

Also, make sure to do at least a couple of dark rides. It's fun to see the Dwarves speaking Japanese.

Oh yeah oh yeah, don't forget the tour of the castle which starts in Fantasyland. It has some Black Cauldron elements in it, which was AWESOME.

Pooh was AMAZING. And the longest line of the night, at......30 minutes. I'm still trying to figure out how it all works -- I have theories, but nothing solid.

Big Thunder Mountain was 12 minutes. Space Mountain? 15. Gadget was a walk-on. That after-6pm pass is a STEAL.

Final count for the trip, 71 coasters (with 2 not operational, one park skipped due to typhoon, and one park closed when we got there due to rain), putting me at 410 total. I'll post real trip reports when I get back, right now I'm checking messages real quick from the lounge at Narita Airport before my flight leaves.

I'm home, safe and sound. Feels good to be sitting at my own desk typing at my own keyboard (actually I had my laptop with me on the trip, but I prefer the desktop when I can)

Trip reports to follow. And pictures. LOTS of pictures -- I took over 2100 all told (and that's at 7.1 megapixels -- huge memory cards combined with a laptop make for a great combination on a long trip...)
