  • Wed, 14:36: Just missed a bus, long wait for the next. Throughout the gate at MK a little after 9--not exactly rope drop but not too bad.
  • Wed, 14:40: Headed to Starbucks pin trading as we went. Sandwiches and caffeine in hand, found a table on Center St. to sit and enjoy, watch Main St.
  • Wed, 15:33: Rode Haunted Mansion with FP+, very quick thru queue. Over to Fantasyland to look for Shannon to say hi.
  • Wed, 15:39: Don't see Shannon at Peter Pan or small world, will ride small world as the wait is short.
  • Wed, 16:07: Emerged humming "it's a small world", walked across to Peter Pan and spoke to Shannon. Will wait for her shift to end, try Skippers Canteen
  • Wed, 16:50: Bought a few pins at Trading Post, now doing Country Bear Jamboree. Never going to be a favorite, but worth seeing once in a while.
  • Wed, 16:51: Deeper in Frontierland--missed FP window for Big Thunder, instead will wander and pin trade.
  • Wed, 17:12: Around to Pirates gift shop, nice chat w CM Figment fan who gave us this button.
  • Wed, 17:13: Jungle Cruise skipper likes the Figment celebration button.
  • Wed, 17:34: Very good skipper for Jungle Cruise, hampered by speaker system w very low volume. We were sitting right by him. :)
  • Wed, 17:35: We have each accessed a Sorcerer's of the Magic Kingdom portal, now waiting to pick up cards for the day.
  • Wed, 17:44: K needs a break, we found a bench in waiting area for Hall of Presidents and will wait 20 min for next show. My feet like this idea too.
  • Wed, 18:54: Got email to say Big Thunder was down during our FP window so we have a limited wild card FP.
  • Wed, 18:55: May not use the FP as are meeting Shannon soon, then lunch, then who knows. Will probably involve pins, though. :)
  • Wed, 18:57: We did go from Hall of Presidents to Circus in New Fantasyland, pin trading. Now waiting for Shannon in a shady spot near Belle.
  • Wed, 19:45: Had to wait about, oh, 30 seconds for a table at Skippers Canteen in the Falls Family Parlor. Would have been a bit longer for S.E.A. Room.
  • Wed, 19:50: Parrot chandelier in Skippers Canteen.
  • Wed, 19:51: "Great Wall of China"
  • Wed, 20:24: SEA shu mai, not bad, though dipping sauce was very salty.
  • Wed, 20:25: Hot and sour soup at Skippers Canteen. Large bowl, nicely spicy.
  • Wed, 20:27: Less well themed at Skippers Canteen is the open doorway to the kitchen/setup area.
  • Wed, 20:32: Service @ Skippers Canteen slow, server disappeared for long periods, food very slow. Still, nice to have another MK option, will come back
  • Wed, 22:36: Rode Peter Pan, then Mine Train twice back to back
  • Wed, 22:46: Tagging along w Shannon as she makes a pin trading sweep thru MK. Tomorrowland to Main Street so far.
  • Wed, 23:07: Starbucks stop for iced drinks--pretty warm today, high in low 80s
  • Wed, 23:52: Shannon headed out, we are bussing to Riverside (articulated bus!) then will walk to French Quarter. Feet too tired to stand for fireworks
  • Thu, 01:03: Decided I need some sort of supper, opted for a bacon, broccoli, cheddar baked potato at POFQ food court.
  • Thu, 01:44: Store manager we met last night is apparently at Riverside tonight, will have to look for her another night.
  • Thu, 01:45: Back in room before 9, yay! Now how late will we be up sorting pins?
  • Thu, 12:04: Good to know the system: have changed our later-than-we-wanted Chef Mickey dinner to 6:40p Fri. by checking the web reservations at 6am.
