You got it, Jess! Loved the refurbed ride!

HS has been a bit brutal. RnR took an hour; ToT standby was 80 minutes and the Fastpass line was 40 minutes.

But then we walked onto Star Tours in 5 minutes.

Yep that was what we never understood....when we were there in November there was never a line for Star Tours even though it's the new and improved ride and is awesome now....we would get off and get right back on again since it's different everytime you do it

Having a nice lunch at Studio Catering Co. It seems they have changed the menu since we were here last, and Joe and I are pleasantly surprised at how good it is! Last time was mediocre at best.

Hey Jeff, how are you posting pics so well, do you have Iphone or what? I can't post directly form my Iphone.
And yes Mase is correct, great step by step trip report. Beats my live streaming I think. Although, if I could connect that directly to here...........................

I think he has an Android phone... if so... he has access to his memory, and can probably directly upload.

I think I jinxed you by calling it Toy Story Mania Day. Sorry about that! Glad you got re-entry passes! Ps. The butterfinger cupcake picture made me drool on my keyboard!

Only reason I wasn't all that happy was because we also had regular fastpasses that we got right when we go there. They were for from 10:15 - 11:15. Since the attraction closed we could not use them, and they would not cancel them, so we could not get fastpasses at ToT or anything else until the TSM ones expired at 11:15.

But it's all ok. We had fun with the day anyhow and will use these free ones tonight Smile

That sort of sucked that they wouldn't cancel the FP's.

Jeff the same thing happened to us with TSM! I should post my pictures of us being escorted out. We were directly at the end though. I think we were about to see our scores when it broke.
