  • Thu, 15:26: S found someone who wanted almost every one of my Pixar alphabets, reg. and chaser--26 pins. I'll look in her and Torie's stuff to balance.

  • Thu, 16:08: Off to Magic Kingdom by bus. Bus sign says "My other bus is a magic carpet".
  • Thu, 17:04: After some back and forth, found store with Pin Quest starter, solved first clue, off to Storybook Circus.
  • Thu, 17:05: Emerged fr store in time for flag retreat.
  • Thu, 17:33: Pretty hot today too, but a little less humid than yesterday. Made it to Circus and did next stage of Pin Quest.
  • Thu, 17:34: Skipped our Mine Train FP, K not interested and I wasn't enthusiastic enough to make her wait on me.
  • Thu, 17:35: I'm interests of saving feet and energy, taking train to next PQ stop in Frontierland.
  • Thu, 18:12: Took us a while to figure out the clue in Briar Patch, but now off to Fantasy Fair. Catching a few Pokemon as we go.
  • Thu, 19:09: Then to Frontierland, now to Tomorrowland Power and Light.
  • Thu, 19:58: Crossed the park to try to eat at Skippers Canteen, and shockingly it had a long wait. Decided to try the Plaza again, took the 30 min wait
  • Thu, 20:01: 30 min wait was really 10 min. Seated and have ordered reubens, K added a choc milkshake
  • Fri, 05:17: It's 5:05 AM, and we're in line at the gate *before * the Epcot International gate. Maybe a dozen people ahead of us.
  • Fri, 05:25: Last night we left MK after eating and before the parade--getting organized for today trumped a last viewing of Electrical Parade.
  • Fri, 05:26: Despite getting back early, neither of us got to bed early and we didn't sleep well. Will prob crash tonight.
  • Fri, 05:29: Krissi got picked for a trivia game this afternoon--they put a paper in her registration packet. She plans to do this for the fun of it.
  • Fri, 05:31: This guy brought along an inflatable bed for the wait. https://t.co/4Aczgfw2VD
  • Fri, 05:33: Rocky and Carol are a few places behind us in line, spending time chatting.
  • Fri, 07:25: 7:22, and we all stirred as they unlocked the gate and let us move into the actual gate area.
  • Fri, 07:28: I'm regretting the decision to bring most of my trader pins, as it will take a long time to get thru security.
  • Fri, 07:52: We are lined up almost at the inspection tables--rumor is the dog may be coming which would speed this tremendously.
  • Fri, 08:02: Yay, the dog handled bag and people inspection! On the downside the front gate opened earlier--there was already a line at the event center
  • Fri, 08:03: Still 30 min before the breakfast event should start.
  • Fri, 08:35: Inside and in our first line. Will get food when the line slows down
  • Fri, 08:53: Line moving very slowly, might not manage 2 trips in breakfast period. As compensation they are showing Pixar shorts--event is Pixar themed
  • Fri, 08:53: Hadn't seen the first Pixar short before--Day & Night. Very cute.
  • Fri, 09:36: Only 2 or 3 actual pin boards, rest are various games. We did a board first, took 45 min. In a game line now, moving faster.
  • Fri, 09:37: Shannon had managed 4 rounds as we finished 1. Knows the system and what lines to do...
  • Fri, 10:47: We just made it to the front of the faster line for a game at 10:02. Line fed 2 sides of boxes, K went right and I went left.
  • Fri, 10:49: cont... We're supposed to start requiring tabs (you get 4/day) at 10, K had a tab pulled and I didn't...then they gave K hers back.
  • Fri, 10:53: Changed to system used last year--Cast Members were posted at the end of each line at 10, marking where tabs will be required.
  • Fri, 10:54: We were just behind the CM in the slow line for the big board, chatted with her about the change, other suggestions we had.
  • Fri, 10:56: Talked about speed of line w CM, and after 20 min she realized the line was going to take 1.5 hrs or more to cycle.
  • Fri, 10:58: CM disappeared for a bit, came back promising some "magic". A little while later a second board appears for the line, cutting cycle by half.
