  • Thu, 22:21: First time S has been evacuated, too, but she's been on the cast side of it.
  • Thu, 22:23: Very short line at Storyland Canal Boats...because the ride shuts for firework safety zone. Off to "its a small world" instead.

  • Fri, 11:40: Backtracked to California Screaming roller coaster, also a walk on. First time I've tried it--height aspects could be handled.
  • Fri, 11:41: My headache declared it time for more coffee, and the stomach needed food before more rides. Left K and S to repeat coaster.
  • Fri, 11:44: Walked back to Flo's Cafe in Carsland, got the basic Disney breakfast platter. Not going to win any awards, but edible.
