  • 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, 01:37: Wandered in Toontown briefly, decided not to ride anything, S needs to check out almost every store. :)

  • Fri, 11:34: First RSR run, my car didn't race--there wasn't another car beside us, or for about 3 cars we could see. Didn't know they did that.
  • Fri, 11:37: Into Paradise Pier area, straight walk on to Toy Story where K cracked 200,000 points. I was a fairly respectable (for me) 166,800.
  • 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.
  • Fri, 11:48: I like the view of Radiator Springs Racers rock work while I eat.
