Crowds were light at MK. Longest wait I saw was 30 for Space and Peter Pan. Onto the pictures!
DSCF1123.jpg
I started off the day with a trip to the Magic Kingdom parking lot.
DSCF1127.jpg
I went through way too much trouble to get this shot. That's why this crappy picture is in the update.
DSCF1129.jpg
There were some camera crews there.
DSCF1132.jpg
And here's proof.
DSCF1130.jpg
For some reason they decided to hang up the Halloween decorations 2 months early.
DSCF1133.jpg
I didn't realize these were actual rooms.
DSCF1134.jpg
These too.
DSCF1135.jpg
Michael Phelps' police escort. There were like 12 of these.
DSCF1139.jpg
I bet you expected a Michael Phelps picture to be next. You were wrong.
DSCF1150.jpg
There he is!
DSCF1151.jpg
The reporter punched him.
DSCF1140.jpg
Tiny castle.
DSCF1152.jpg
They're doing construction on the Liberty Square bridge. It's causing some traffic issues. With the construction of the bridge and the Castle getting its lights, there's only 3 ways out of the hub.
DSCF1163.jpg
I went to Splash Mountain. Only a 10 minute wait.
DSCF1160.jpg
Brer Tree.
DSCF1161.jpg
Nerd shot!
DSCF1165.jpg
I heard a teacher invented it.
DSCF1166.jpg
Drunks.
DSCF1185.jpg
I don't know if you guys noticed, but I'm not very good at this whole "photography" thing.
DSCF1186.jpg
Skin me if ya like!
DSCF1197.jpg
Did you mean SATISFACTORY?
DSCF1199.jpg
If I said Michael Phelps was in this log, you wouldn't be able to prove me wrong.
DSCF1201.jpg
I've never seen these guys before. They were pretty good.
DSCF1202.jpg
It's barely even haunted during the day.
DSCF1205.jpg
This CM was rude. I reported her to guest relations.
DSCF1206.jpg
Something something Jeff Johnson.
DSCF1208.jpg
Ooh ooh ooh! Here's a neat arts and crafts idea. Make a flipbook out of this and the previous picture. Then kill yourself.
DSCF1212.jpg
They're putting up the Christmas lights FOUR MONTHS EARLY.
DSCF1213.jpg
I decided to ride Astro Orbiter for the first time. It was neat.
DSCF1215.jpg
The early bird gets the worm.
DSCF1222.jpg
From the top of Rockettower Plaza. Yeah, it's actually called that.
DSCF1223.jpg
I don't know what this is and why it's in my park but I want it OUT.
DSCF1224.jpg
Will do. AK photos coming next.

Light crowds at AK as well. Longest wait was 40 for Everest. I love AK's detail, so I included some really weird nerdy shots. Please put up with them.
DSCF1229.jpg
Sweet. It's already off to a good start.
DSCF1230.jpg
World exclusive shot.
DSCF1232.jpg
In Drinkwalla. They put random crap all around the park. It's great.
DSCF1233.jpg
Oh who's this I see?
DSCF1234.jpg
Hellllo nurse!
DSCF1235.jpg
He bought me a frozen Vault.
DSCF1237.jpg
Oh, there's also rides here.
DSCF1239.jpg
There's something missing in this picture...
DSCF1246.jpg
On the hunt for the bird on a stick.
DSCF1247.jpg
Oh biiiiird on a stiiiiick...bird on a stiiiiiiiick...
DSCF1319.jpg
There you are! You had me worried sick, bird on a stick!
DSCF1248.jpg
I have a weird fascination with the signs at AK also.
DSCF1249.jpg
Hey, I didn't force you to read this (most likely).
DSCF1251.jpg
Tree through the trees!
DSCF1255.jpg
Next up, Kilimanjaro Safaris. Here's a neat fact: I spelled that right.
DSCF1271.jpg
Here's half of a baby giraffe.
DSCF1272.jpg
Here's the other half of said giraffe.
DSCF1288.jpg
You would think the ostriches would know not to go onto the road by now.
DSCF1274.jpg
Neat robot!
DSCF1289.jpg
Mystery crane at the end of Dinoland. Anyone know what this is for?
DSCF1291.jpg
Not our dino.
DSCF1307.jpg
This ride is SO sponsored by Mcdonalds. If you understand why I said that, you win. By win I mean the opposite of win.
DSCF1309.jpg
For some reason I have a fascination with making idiotic faces on Dinosaur.
DSCF1314.jpg
I rounded out the day with a SPIN on Primeval Whirl. GET IT?!?!?!?
DSCF1313.jpg
Yeah, I forgot how much it hurts.
DSCF1311.jpg
Bye bye!

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.
DSCF1321.jpg
This fulfills my "Erik shot" quota.
DSCF1322.jpg
Will wears a mean dark pair of shades.
DSCF1325.jpg
I have a weird compulsion with taking pictures of every street performer I see.
DSCF1326.jpg
These guys were in a very strange spot: across from the Nemo theater.
DSCF1328.jpg
We took a ride on Everest.
DSCF1327.jpg
The single rider line was going very fast today. It was probably just luck.
DSCF1332.jpg
This ride includes many homages to There Will Be Blood.
DSCF1333.jpg
This is a picture of Will pretending to not notice he's having a picture taken of him.
DSCF1334.jpg
Next up: the Safari. We had a good ride. Oh, you want proof? I'll give you proof.
DSCF1336.jpg
First we saw some pandas.
DSCF1344.jpg
Then there were the horses.
DSCF1349.jpg
And these guys...don't get me started on these guys.
DSCF1353.jpg
Animals are fun and interesting, aren't they, gang?
DSCF1360.jpg
Oh boy do I love elephants.
DSCF1362.jpg
Except for this one.
DSCF1364.jpg
I hate him so much.
DSCF1363.jpg
Take that, Hanno!
DSCF1365.jpg
Birds on sticks everywhere!
DSCF1367.jpg
Lots of rhinos this time.
DSCF1369.jpg
Definitely a rhino.
DSCF1371.jpg
Here's a baby kangaroo, sometimes called a joey.
DSCF1381.jpg
We did some more stuff, but I decided to not get my camera wet. We had an alright time until the rain kicked into high gear. You've been a great test crew. Come back and ride with us anytime. Bye now!

Some great pics and captions. The Nerd Shot below is my favorite.

Satisfactual comes from the Zippity Doo Dah song lyrics.

This Nerd Shot made me laugh.

Today my roommate Will, his friend Jerry, and I went to the Disney Studios and Epcot. It was much more crowded than we expected. 90 minute wait for Toy Story. Crowds lightened up towards the end of the day, Mission: Space being a walk-on and Test Track at a 30-minute wait. Picture time!
DSCF1382.jpg
We parked far away. This was a bad omen.
DSCF1383.jpg
This is a shot of me realizing I didn't take a picture of the entrance and being too lazy to back up and get a full picture of the sign.
DSCF1384.jpg
The limo is back. I like this shot.
DSCF1386.jpg
With the new line configuration on RnRC you can see backstage...through the trees!
DSCF1387.jpg
The G-Force Records logo is how Robocop would look as a South Park character.
DSCF1388.jpg
I don't know if you noticed, but these are modeled to look like electric guitar instruments, popular in most rock and roll music bands.
DSCF1391.jpg
You know how we feel about our fans!
DSCF1397.jpg
Nerd shot!
DSCF1398.jpg
Nerdier shot!
DSCF1399.jpg
They've had a maintenance call in for the front elevators for over 15 years. Poor show, Disney.
DSCF1401.jpg
We took a whirlwind tour of creepy animatronics on the "Great" Movie Ride.
DSCF1407.jpg
Then we left. Apparently nobody else wanted to leave.
DSCF1408.jpg
We parked REALLY close to the front.
DSCF1409.jpg
It's amazing how they harnessed the power of black holes to construct Spaceship Earth.
DSCF1413.jpg
I was stressed out.
DSCF1414.jpg
This is considered evidence.
DSCF1418.jpg
Oh my. I must have gone in the wrong entrance.
DSCF1420.jpg
Yeah, these qualify as my 2 Test Track pictures.
DSCF1421.jpg
I love this ride. It's half the time of an entire feature-length film. It's insane!
DSCF1425.jpg
They were only running 5 cars today. I don't know if the other show had 5 or 6.
DSCF1430.jpg
Bye bye!

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!
DSCF1459.jpg
I got nervous when I saw a lot of cars. This was nothing to be worried about.
DSCF1460.jpg
Yeah, construction is still going on strong in the main concourse. It's only been forever.
DSCF1463.jpg
There's some funky thing that's going on top of that.
DSCF1464.jpg
Aaaand we're in.
DSCF1466.jpg
5 flags!
DSCF1468.jpg
This was taken at about 5:00. I think.
DSCF1471.jpg
I stared at this picture for about 5 minutes trying to think of a caption.
DSCF1473.jpg
I don't think I've ever seen these before. What the hell are they?
DSCF1474.jpg
People seem to love going through the switchbacks as fast as possible.
DSCF1476.jpg
My score was 1337 for "Eibloo".
DSCF1477.jpg
Candy lights!
DSCF1478.jpg
I decided to wander a little bit.
DSCF1479.jpg
Wandering over! The only ejector air in Orlando is here!
DSCF1483.jpg
There's new cups.
DSCF1484.jpg
And new napkins. This is rock bottom, isn't it?
DSCF1486.jpg
Why would I use the camera right after eating ribs? You can practically taste the liquid smoke in it.
DSCF1495.jpg
After reading Dan's TR I decided it was finally time to ride the Liberty Belle.
DSCF1498.jpg
I think there's a little bit of the show building on the bottom right. That counts as a caption I think.
DSCF1499.jpg
"Tom Sawyer, you tricked me! This is less fun than previously indicated! Let this corny slice of Americana be your tomb for all eternity!"
DSCF1501.jpg
This is interesting. I'm getting too cocky with my photography.
DSCF1505.jpg
At first it seems unassuming...
DSCF1506.jpg
Until the boat blew the horn.
DSCF1513.jpg
It's cute how they all act like animatronics when the boat goes by. It's like Toy Story!
DSCF1514.jpg
They probably shouldn't use the blankets. Just a suggestion.
DSCF1521.jpg
That's probably something.
DSCF1526.jpg
Then I went on Big Thunder. It was like nerd shot central.
DSCF1525.jpg
Almost a nerd shot.
DSCF1528.jpg
Now THAT'S a nerd shot!
DSCF1533.jpg
And then I went on the best Jungle Cruise ride I've had in a very long time.
DSCF1534.jpg
Give me some personality, Skipper.
DSCF1535.jpg
That's more like it!
DSCF1544.jpg
Those people aren't even looking at the backside of water! This is a once in a 10-minute opportunity, people!
DSCF1549.jpg
There were some Halloween-themed statues in the hub.
DSCF1557.jpg
Uh oh...I...I need to leave. I didn't realize robots would be attacking me.
DSCF1558.jpg
That's right, Space Ace. Ladies?
DSCF1572.jpg
I go sleep now.
