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.

Lol - we were at the end reviewing the boar dwith our scores and the high scores when it broke. We could see the place where you exit the cars just one car in front of us. What irke dme and had me in a bad mood about it (and why I was luke-warm on the FastPasses they gave us) was that they let the people in the car in front of us out right at the exit; then they came to us, let us off, and then made us follow the CMs in single file through the entire rest of the ride backwards from where we were, while they manually released everyone else from their cars. So it took us about 20 minutes to get out because we were the firsst to be let out of our car, but had to go throug the entire game in reverse while they released each car.

It was all my fault (though I could blame Kris for jinxing us - haha! But no, it was my fault) - my plan was to FP TSM only and then go to RnR & ToT, then come back to TSM.But I got sucked in by the Standby wait time that said 15 minutes, and the line was moving. So I said "Oh, let's go ahead and ride it while we're here!!". Mistake. We got about 2/3 through the line when problems first started with the ride. It took about 20 minutes to get to the car, but then the ride stopped 3 times during play. The last time was as we were finishing. That's when they decided to close it.

So by the time we got out and over to ToT & RnR, we were doomed. After a little over 2 hours in the park, we maned to ride just 2 rides.... I felt like a park rookie after that!

But the CMs were super nice about everything, like always. And it helps that we will visit HS 2 more times during our stay, so no harm done Smile

Sorry for the limited posts today - we decided to take a bit of a break from our electronics and technology Smile

We were talking to a CM at MouseGears this morning and she was telling us she was at MK yesterday and it was a total madhouse. She said both Splash Mountain and Space Mountain were shut down at one time or another. She also told us that ToT had one elevator out for a bit yesterday. That must explain the 40 minute wait for FastPass that we encountered.

I'm quite surprised at the number of incidences we are experiencing or hearing about with the attractions.

Happy to report we didn't have any problems at Epcot today. Yay!

We're heading to AK tomorrow morning. Woot!

Good reads man! Glad your having a blast!

As for ToT.... last time when Jess went on it... it was a 15 minute wait... then we found out it was down to 1 elevator as well.
