    We were here, relaxing and getting ready to go back to DHS. Got there, chilled, took photos, checked the line for Fantasmic, 9PM was full, line forming for 1030PM. No worries CM says. Rain let's up, use our 920PM fast passes, go wait in line for Fantasmic. Wait, wait, wait, light drizzle, to light showers. No worries, says CM, show goes unless it is really bad.

    Fast forward to 1040PM, after witing on line, waiting in amphitheater, waiting, waiting, wainting. Cancelled due to weather.




    ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME??????????????????


    Could they not have decided that in the 2 hours prior, when we asked, when we waited??????

    Talk about a major NOT HAPPY.

    The 9PM went even though there was thunder, lightening, heavy rain. Ours DID NOT go, even though it was a light drizzle to light rain.


    So not happy with that. Of course, everyone piled into RNRC and ToT, so we went and did Star Tours 3 times, back to back, had a burger and came back late, obviiously.

    Really great CM at STours. Really Great. And all of the upgrades are awesome. Loved the Darth Vader version.

    RNRC-amazing.

    ToT-well, i didn't pee myself, and I didn't end up thinking I might die. Still hate it. lol
    I didn't go to Fantasmic either this past trip. I don't love that show enough to wait in line for hours or to pay to eat at a venue that I other wise wouldn't just to get in. Plus there is so much that is broken right now. So I gave her a pass this trip.

    Some are a bit ewe, near the some of the subway areas. Others were so dang beautiful. But we didn't know what we were doing and a tad risky to get lost or not being able to pretend we knew what we were doing.

    It is such a cool system though, I want to understand it. May have to breakdown and actually take the tour.

    It actually wound up being the Tour Boat vs the Water Taxi we use. Phew. I think they took 9 to the hospital but I don't think any were serious or worse.

    On my last day/evening at DHS, I was heading back to the hotel after a mega downpour going to catch the ME. I was the only one on the bus. I was chatting with the bus driver, he was from where I grew up and I was not looking out at the rain or the road but at him. He went to turn a corner and lost control of the bus and slammed into the concrete road divider. Asked if I was OK, backed up about 10 feet and we continued on our merry 'ole way. Can you imagine if people were standing up on the bus?

    It was actually the second thing that came to mind when I heard about the boat crash into the concrete wall. My own private crash at WDW.

    They are not allowed to go anywhere without those lanyards around their necks. Wonder when it is all over if their necks will feel nakie.

    I talked to her a lot yesterday and she was a bit homesick for the better part of the day, which really surprised me because she likes to be 100% independent. But she got no sleep at all at Coronado the previous night and then was out the door super early to get to Vista. Had problems the rest of the day- the machine that prints out the housing IDs broke as hers was printing, so all of her roomies went on to Casting and she got stuck back at Vista while it was fixed. Finally off to casting- copy machine they were using to copy her birth certificate/etc broke, finger print machine broke, and some other machine started acting funny all as it was her turn. Tired, cranky, and hungry, she was finally out of there something like 4+ hours later. Says she never wants to see the Casting building again.

    Got to Patterson to her apartment finally, all of her roomies had already been there for a few hours. She is happy with her place and roomies, so that is good. She called me again at the end of the night to say, "I just wanted to let you know that I feel a lot better now and I think I'll probably like it here". Lol, think she was just a bit overwhelmed at first.

    She is a bit worried about the schedule they gave her, all of her friends have their schedules for when to start work...hers is blank in that portion. Similar thing happened to me on my CP, only for me to be woken up from a phone call from Epcot asking why I haven't reported for my first day of work. Told her she should probably call to find out what's going on so she avoids that scenario, so hopefully she'll have more info soon.
