  • Sun, 13:03: Tweeting stopped for movement and pin trading. Stopped just outside event to trade and chat with a mom and daughter. Back to BC, sky stormy
  • Sun, 13:20: Bags to room, went looking for food. BC problem--very limited counter service. High demand for table service means no last min. reservations
  • Sun, 13:45: Beaches & cream 2 hr wait for counter, Captains Grille wouldn't give a wait time unless we came back at 8 to ask. Lounge full.

  • Mon, 00:35: Got a spot just over the bridge to France, looking over a dessert party on the lower terrace. Should be a pretty good view.
  • Mon, 01:25: Missed my Illuminations viewing spot a bit--5-10 ft to left would've avoided tree branches. Still love that show
