    That is great news!

    So far, all is well in my little corner of Disney's world. Toy Story Mania opens for real 9 days before our trip. Pirates doesn't close for rehab until the day after we leave. Life is good!

    I've seen some photos showing Toy Story mania from 30th March. I was quite surprised as it doesn't look like its even nearly ready. They are only just planting the trees and no pathways are down yet. Here is a link to the photos if any one wants a look.

    I am SOOOO hoping to catch a soft opening while we're there. We'll be at the Studios on May 7th.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    The news I got from someone who rode TSM yesterday, was that the lines were really long (2 hours), the cue is outstanding, and it was a great ride. Many people got off the ride and yelled to those still in the cue, "it's worth the wait, hang in there." (That's always good to hear.) Mr. Potato Head is a combination of an automatronic and an interactive attraction.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?
