Today I went to AK with my roommate. Light crowds again, and heavy rain. Everything except Everest was a walk-on. Everest had a 30-40 minute wait. The Yeti was in B-mode today and yesterday. Not too many pictures today due to it raining the entire time we were there.

I went to the Magic Kingdom in the late afternoon/night today.

Things of note:
-It was totally dead. The only thing I didn't walk on was my 2nd ride on Space Mountain, which was filling the station, but past the turnstiles.
-They're all ready for MNSSHP, looks to be exactly the same as last year, which is a good thing.
-I met the management of Waldameer way out of the blue. They were walking over the Splash Mountain bridge and I saw their Waldameer polos so I stopped them and said hello and how awesome RF2 was on the Behemoth trip. They also found out today about their Golden Ticket. They seemed happy.
-They were only running 1 station on Big Thunder, and they were stacking the trains a little. I don't know if I've ever seen that before on there.

And now that you've ignored the words, onto the photos!
