    Lou's Trip Report now online

    You asked for it... and now (like it or not) you got it!

    I've just posted the first installment of my September 2004 Trip Report in the "Ask Lou..." section HERE. It's called:

    "The Adventures of Frontierland Lou "
    a.k.a. Princess Marion's First Trip "Home"
    (thanks to Mickeybabe for the great suggestions!)

    This is just Day One, with Day Two to be posted soon. There is also a link at the bottom of the page to some additional photos I uploaded to my Gallery HERE.

    I hope you enjoy it (and you don't find it too long and/or boring!) I have a tendency to ramble. It's the lawyer in me!

    Wow Lou! What a great first day! From your pictures, it seems Princess Marion had a great first day too! I can't wait to hear about the rest of your trip!

    Great report so far, Lou. Makes mine look bad though. However, I used the Reader's Digest method.

    Speaking of WWTBAM, the key is to keep pressing the button as soon as you know the answer, that is even before the lights light up. Learned that from a veteran. Sadly, IMHO, there are a group of folks that play WWTBAM all day and almost every other day. There was one couple who have played over 600 times and been in hot seat over 10 times each. The most they have won is 5 WDW pins. The husband was in the hot seat during our show and he missed the $200 question. I asked a CM and he told me there are about 15 "regulars" who are mostly handicapped and/or elderly and they sit in the same seats 300-320 all the time and a few are always in the top 10 show after show. They all think they are going to win a Disney Cruise. Our host was Tracy Woo. They said she was a famous TV star, but I had never seen her before, but she probably never saw me either! Did take a couple of pics before they said no photography of any kind.

    Thanks, JC!!! I'll try and get the next installment online today or tomorrow.

    You're trip report was great as well! (OK, so I'm a little [make that a lot] long-winded). Hope mine isn't too boring.

    As for your WWTBAm tips, that's exactly what I do, and have ended up at the top of the list after the fastest-finger question winner gets on (I stink at those). That, or I blow it on a silly kids question (like who was Mr. Winkle!!!)) Ugh.

    Well, I looked outside my window this morning and saw a line of people outside my front door, waiting for the next installment of my Trip Report. It was like the line in front of Mann's Chinese Theater for a new Star Wars movie! People dressed in Lou and Deanna costumes, wielding Trivia Books and....

    OK, well... not really.

    Anyway, like it or not, the third part of my Trip Report, aptly called
    (I'm one of those Star Wars dorks who waits outside to see the midnight show, OK?) is now online

    There's also a link to the Trip's Photo Album, which can be found Here

    Heop you enjoy it

    I think there's a compliment in there somewhere

    :laugh:

    Alas, all good things must come to and end (and long-winded things like my Trip Report, too),

    So, without further ado, here is


    I hope you all enjoy it, and thanks for all of the nice emails and PMs about the reports.

    Lou- Seems like you guys had a blast! Sounds like my kind of vacation...breakfast, mid-morning snack, then lunch, followed by some kind of snack, then dinner (including dessert), then later, a bedtime snack. Lest I forget the midnight snack attack...
