At Sydney airport just enjoyed an hour long massage - having some French champagne to get in the mood while I eat my lunch. Boarding in 1 1/2 hours. Next stop Singapore.

So made it to Singapore, the buggy thing was very nice - got taken to a little lounge for immigration processing etc - all very civilised going through customs/immigration with a glass of champagne.

Flight up was lovely, 1A on the A380, big screen television, and the tasting menu with matched wines - I have a spare day here in singapore before I get on the plane for the short 15 hour hop tonight - thinking of going to universal studios singapore, and over to see the new Marina Bay Sands Casino.

See you all tomorrow.

    So...I think everyone is there or traveling there already except for me, Lori, and Jason. How often will we all be checking here and Facebook today? I think every 5 minutes until flight time. So glad that I'm not working today...nothing would be getting done.

    I work today until 12:00 doing emergencies, so a little stressed about getting done on time, but then just a few things to do before going to the airport. Happy travel day!

    I've been on this thread and Facebook about 4 times today (so far). I'm glad I didn't go to work today, I would've been bouncing off the walls!

    The Nautilus itself was in front of Space Mountain 2. But there was a "hidden" entrance somewhere in there area.

    I totally never saw that! But then, I was feeling pretty yucky when I got off of Space Mountain, so who knows! So sorry we missed it. I wonder if anyone in our group made it in there?

    I did, and it had the same cool retro-futuristic aesthetic as the rest of Discoveryland. I didn't post very many of the photos on Flickr as they were taken with a flash and not very satisfactory, but here they are anyway, to share some of the baroque glories of the Nautilus.

    The cast member costumes were designed by John Paul Gaultier:

































    A giant squid would investigate the sub in a not friendly way when this viewing port opened.






    In the center of the organ, Nemo would appear on a screen and speak.

    Cool! Did you do this while we were there, or during your extra days afterwards?
