Well, another tiring day in Orlando! A few more random notes and observations before the big TR portion:

1. Disney boardwalk is cool!

2. A Disney ride can scare a person!

3. Spinning makes me dizzy!

4. It's still hot!

O.K., so it's a little late, I'm a little tired. Deal with the silly notes. It's better than...well...you think of something.

Well, went to the Experimental Prototype Communtity of Tommorow first. Had my fun there, and then decided Animal Kingdom needs to be done because of time constraints. Rode bus to AK, rode rides, then came back for shows and fireworks.

My personal TR type observations:

Favorite Ride: Dinosaur, great dark ride with awesome theming in the lit up parts. In a distant second was Test Track, a very fun time was had, watch out for the wall!

Funniest Moment: Convincing the entire family that "El Rio Del Tiempo", the river of time in the Mexico pavillion, had a huge drop that was run backwards. Some of you probably know that the ride is an extremely calm ride (ala small world) through scenery. NO drops, nothing backwards. Well, as you can imagine, revenge was waiting around the corner...

Bad Times Guide: Probably finding out that we could have walked to EPCOT faster than the stinkin' boat got us there. We decided to try WDW transportation instead of driving. Not bad stuff, though, just would have been handy to know we could have walked!

Best Ideas: Going to AK a few hours before they close. The park was 20 min. waits max. Also, the "house of the future" in innoventions east was dang cool. I didn't think it was worth the time. I was wrong.

Tommorow: MGM Studios. 1 more for the coaster count, and tons of R'nRC/ToT re-rides!

I cower in the face of Dinosaurs!

EDIT: changed paragraphs-they don't transfer well from other programs!

Hey Todd, I rode Primeval Whirl at AK, a very fun ride! Not Too thrilling, but it's not really meant to be. I never did get to the universe of energy, though. Thanks for reading!
