Deb called to get the scoop while we were on the bus, she got to talk to all three of us to get everyone’s reactions. I am always happy to see palm trees since we don’t have any up here, to me it is usually means that I have “arrived”.
Once we got to the All Star Music we checked-in, met up with Lindsay and Christina and met the lovely Felicia who was celebrating her 34th birthday. Her first words to me were “does he belong to you?” as she pointed to Jake. I wasn’t sure why she was asking so I just looked at her, puzzled. Felicia was on a mission; she was to get pictures of herself receiving a kiss from 34 random men. She had a list that looked like Santa’s naughty and nice list, sealed envelopes with numbers from 1 to 34 inside. So Jake picked an envelope and got number 1, I think, that meant he had to sign on line number one on her list, he gave her the kiss for the photo and signed her card too. She was a blast! I hope everything works out for her, she was a sweet lady.
Got our room cards, dropped off our stuff, had a quick bite at the food court and made our way to the TTC. I love the Monolair! I mean the Monorail. I was in a daze, couldn’t believe I was actually there. Actually, I am not sure I remember clearly what we did that night, once on Main Street, Gae went to look for her brother, Christina and Lindsay were going to film and take pictures of all the Christmas decorations so we were to meet up around 10 at the Buzz ride.
Jake and I walked right by Jungle Cruise thinking it was closed, it wasn’t......oh well. Hit the Tiki Room first, we were maybe 10 people total in there. After that checked out Pirates, it was strange to see Jack in there, the AAs themselves are awesome but it will take some getting used to. Rode Big Thunder Mountain then met up with Lindsay, got soaked on Splash Mountain, I got over my fear and actually enjoyed the ride this time. The drop used to freak me out. Made our way to the HM and got to hear Jake’s Shaggy impression for the first time, what I think is funny is how many seconds it takes for people to realize what they heard and laugh, you can literally count 1....2....3 (got to hear it a few times).
After that I am not sure if it was time to meet up with Christina in Tomorrowland or if we rode Peter Pan first. We saw a little bit of the fireworks as we walked over to Tomorrowland. We ended up riding Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear, Stitch’s Great Escape, Phillarmagic and the TTA in no particular order. Might have repeated rides too. I may come back and edit as I remember things or as I read Gae’s report, we met up with her and her brother on Main Street later on. It’s amazing how quickly the hours go by, next thing you know it’s snowing on Main Street and it’s time to go! It was my first time at this time of the year, it was nice to see all the decorations but the music threw me off, walking over to the HM with Jingle Bells playing over the loudspeakers was just weird!
I guess we were not very good party guests, didn't have hot cocoa, didn't have cookies, didn't watch any of the shows or parades, just hit as many rides as possible!
