    UGH I can't do Star Tours either! First (and last) time I went on I remember closing my eyes and wishing it was over! I got off and rested with a frozen Coke! haha Glad you felt better by the time you left HS!

    I thought the chocolate carousel was amazing when we stayed in November
    I’m sorry I missed seeing the Easter display
    Your pictures are so pretty thanks for taking them
    Great family pic on the beach
    I love ToT and that feeling of weightlessness
    I feel the same way about Star Tours simulators bother my stomach too but nothing was as bad as HP Forbidden Journey :crazy2:
    I had to shut my eyes as soon as it started felt nauseous the rest of the day
    Can’t wait till August so you can report back on Toy Story Land

    Wow, Chip is amazing!!

    :rotfl: Whadda' guy!

    100% with you there on simulators. Uggh. No way, no how. And I've never done ST for this reason, but I understand it's one of the worst for this. :sick:

    Yeh, high of 56 For my area of GA in April is just uncalled for! I live in the South for a reason!

    :eek:

    Love them! Especially the villains!

    We will be waiting until October!

    Yep...this is me. Just cannot do it. Simulators are almost always not for me. Soarin' I can do, and I will attempt FoP in the future but that's about it.

    I cannot wait to see those photos!

    So glad to hear this! I'm doing KTTK one day at 8am and do NOT want to be late... Minnie Van seems like the way to go :thumbsup2

    Lovely family shot! :goodvibes

    Yeah... this worries me. I haven't done this ride in over 10 years but am a major Star Wars fan so I feel like I need to again. I had a FP for it last trip but chickened out. Guess I'll just have to see how brave I'm feeling next month :laughing:

    Yep, I feel your pain. I can't do simulator rides either...Sadly, that's why I won't EVER be riding FOP. NOPE! Not me!

    Joining in. Looks like a good first day so far! (except for wanting to puke on Star Tours). I tolerate it, but it isn't my favorite either.

    Isn't it funny, it depends on where you want to be waiting. I am sure there are some people who would rather wait sitting on the bus.... I mean EVERYONE would perfer to not wait at all. But ME is "free".... So you have to take what you get. ME for us is kind of like the begining of the bubble for us. Strange I know...

    I love the blue egg! Do you know how long they keep them up after and before Easter?


    Love these little villian ones...

    This is Morgan in the parks with the heat. She just wants to go back and swim. And basically why we can't really go in the summer.

    I know you aren't Star Wars fans, but there are just so few rides these days.....

    I can see that he thought it would be more. I kind of feel that way about Soar'n after FOP. The game has been upped and it really pulls some of these rides down.

    So early! I bet y'all were so tired. The destination is defiantly worth it.

    My brothers absolutely love the arcades. They always spend so much time AND money in the arcades

    I agree! It is defiantly lacking something.

    Ah...what a great start. I'll have to check out your B&C dining report for sure. Really enjoy that place and must know if you got the kitchen sink!

    Poor Chris being tired before you even start. I feel like my family was the same way this trip. Man we are so NOT in amusement park shape!

    Yes the eggs at GF (and even some at Contemporary) were really amazing. I have a ton of those photos in my TR...couldn't help it.

    Can't believe you've never done ST, but I admit that I'm usually the same way with simulators. I've gotten more tolerant of them as of late though. I don't know why.

    Joining in on the fun!! Love, love, love the family pic on the beach at Beach Club but your boys have gotten so big. Ricky looks like he has really filled out and Chris is tall!! They grow up so fast (says the mother putting down deposits for university residence in the fall)! Love Beaches and Cream and think HS makes for a good first day park. It would have been ours for August too but now that we land on Tuesday Epcot has EMH until 11 so Epcot it will be. A definite yay that our dates still overlap! :) Where are you guys staying in August?

    Can't wait to see the Copper Creek villas!

    That Stitch Easter egg is WOW! Honorable mentions to Bambi, the Fab Five, and Chip.

    I'm so excited about Toy Story Land :hyper:

    I'm the exact same way on most motion simulator rides. Just :faint:. Although I can handle Star Tours just fine as long as I keep my eyes closed about 75% of the time. And Dramamine is my best friend!

    I also can't do rides that have sheer drops. I went on Tower of Terror (Disneyland) once about 10 years ago. I had to take a seat as soon as we exited. And I was shaking for almost an hour afterward. I'm a weenie :laughing:

    Ugh, star tours is the worst for motion sickness. Glad you bounced back so quickly, and I can't wait to see your room! :woohoo:

    I really want to see those easter eggs, but I also don't want to deal with the crowds!

    LOL I was thinking the same thing, "when will this END!!!" Luckily I was fine fast because there have been times I haven't been. Not risking it in the future! But I really don't think anyone else in the family will want to ride again anyway.

    LOVE their Christmas display as well! BC is one of the best resorts to visit during Christmas :santa:

    :thanks:

    OMG Forbidden Journey :crazy2: Another one I'll never go on again. Really I think that's tied with ST as far as being horrible!

    Isn't he? They're all fantastic but a few stood out and Chip is one of them.

    Definitely one of the worst, as I said above along with Forbidden Journey. And honestly I don't think you're missing much by not riding ST.

    I think you'll be fine on FOP. I'm find on new Soarin', wasn't good on old Soarin', and am good on FoP. Although there's one quick part where I do have to close my eyes on FoP but that's it. Can't wait for you to ride it!

    :wave: Glad you're here! The entire displays were awesome!

    I remember when we did KTTK we attempted taking an early bus from BC to MK-had the 8:00 tour also. Ended up taking a taxi so as not to be late! But normally buses start around 6:30 so you should be fine, but with the Minnie Van? No worries :simba: Maybe they'll hire me to do their Minnie Van advertising lol!

    :thanks:
    Oh man, now FoP is one I CAN do! I love it. I have to close my eyes in one part but it's so incredible, that sucks you can't try it! What about if you attempt it but keep your eyes closed if you have to? It's definitely not at all like Star Tours :sick:

    Hi Sofia, glad you're here! this one was definitely an interesting trip :)

    :welcome: thanks for following!

    Definitely a good day, even though we didn't last as long as we'd planned it was a great start :goodvibes

    I agree with you, I enjoy riding ME and feel like it's the start to our trips. One time Steve and I got a taxi instead and yeah, it was really great to be at our resort like 45 minutes after walking off the plane, but I honestly missed riding ME. I don't get that aggravated, I just get aggravated when Steve gets aggravated.............

    I'm not sure; I know they put them up like a day or two before we arrived which would have been the 22nd or 23rd, so just over a week before Easter. Since they stopped the Easter Egg Hunt in Epcot right after my guess is....maybe they leave the eggs up a week after the holiday at the most??

    Kind of why I didn't mind trying it, plus I hate having rides/attractions there I've never done! I figured it would kill two birds; get me on a "new to me" ride and give us something else to do in the park.

    You know, once you get down there the exhaustion goes away! And then it sets in again around late afternoon..............but we often take the early morning flights. I like having the whole day to do what we want for as long as we can until we're ready to call it a night. We've also taken early evening flights and gotten down there like 8pm and we aren't big fans of that. Steve and I are going down again May 5th and our flight from here leaves 7am. We're going from Newark so it means leaving home around 4am but we'll land at like, 9:40 :)

    It used to bother me when the boys spent time in arcades because video games are something they can do at home! But they enjoy it, it gives them that break they need sometimes from the parks, so what the heck lol

    Thanks, and I'm glad you're here! I can't wait to read your version of the days we were both there lol. I won't keep you in suspense-no kitchen sink since two of us didn't want ice cream :( One of these days though!

    We never saw the ones at the Contemporary unfortunately, but besides the BC we did get to the GF and also saw one at the Yacht Club. One lone egg there lol.

    Yay, :welcome: thanks for coming by!

    OMG it's going way too fast :sad1: I don't envy you getting ready to send yours off to college. We'll be doing college visits next year for Ricky and I can't even think about it.

    I'm so excited! Right now we're at BLT but that may change; we're possibly taking Ricky's friend with us. If we do that we may do a split stay, still with some nights at BLT. Where are you?

    It was like as cool as one was, the next one was cooler!

    So am I :goodvibes I think my boys are a little too old and won't thoroughly enjoy the new rides but I love anything new, and I'm hoping the whole land itself is done well. I also think the menu for Woody's Lunch Box has some interesting items on it although judging by the long thread over on the restaurant board, about 50% of people disagree with me :laughing:

    LOVED.IT. In fact another studio at CCV just came up with my discount for our quick May trip and we considered switching, but since it was a last minute trip kind of sandwiched between to bigger (read: $$$) trips we decided to stay put. But we'll definitely go back at some point!

    I don't blame you :scared1: I'm so glad we finally went for Easter as it was a time I'd never been there, and those eggs are great. But are they worth the crowds???? I think I know 3 males who would say no........................

    The Slinky roller coaster looks like so much fun! I'm with you on the Woody's Lunch Box menu - the grilled three cheese, totchos, and grown-up lemonade have my name written ALL over them :cool2:
