  • Wed, 19:30: It's Disney World again! Pin event weekend, and I'm late started tweeting. Will have to do a set of catch up tweets tonight.
  • Wed, 23:08: I drove down yesterday (Tues), spent last night in a Springhill Suites...not recommended. Hotel room layout poor, but breakfast not bad.
  • Wed, 23:10: On the drive down, I tripped and fell at the Fla Turnpike service plaza, landing heavily on left knee. Rather spectacular bruising.
  • Wed, 23:12: Knee is getting iced, wrapped in ace bandage when I'm walking around.
  • Wed, 23:13: This morning I headed to store for aforementioned ace bandage, more pin pages for my trade binders, then to airport to pick up Krissi.
  • Thu, 00:23: Heat and humidity are at typical August-in-Florida levels, which is to say pretty miserable.
  • Thu, 00:29: We drove to Davenport Fl to visit with Debbie E, a pin trading friend we met several years ago. Lots of nice chatting and pin trading
  • Thu, 00:31: Debbie's nephew Gary was visiting & grilled burgers for us, then we headed to Beach Club to find room--checked in online so bypassed desk
  • Thu, 00:32: I iced knee and we both did some organizing, then off to Animal Ingdom by bus for our evening FastPasses for the new Avatar VR ride
  • Thu, 00:34: Met up with Shannon, the Cast Member who is also a pin-trading friend, also bumped into Mark in store and chatted. Pin network expands...
  • Thu, 00:35: On the Pok�mon Go front, we both have caught a Heracross, but still in search of Corsola. Neither is available in most of the US.
  • Thu, 00:37: Had dinner at Satuli Canteen--I had beef bowl on white/sweet potato hash w chimichurri, very good.
  • Thu, 00:39: Pandora is really impressive, needs lots of time to wander and see details in day and night (night has a lot of "bioluminescenct" features).
  • Thu, 00:40: However, weather too oppressive for the leisurely exploration. We let Shannon lead us to the signature ride, Flight of Passage
  • Thu, 00:42: Flight of Passage is really cool, but triggered some motion sickness. Might have to work out best pattern of when to ride, do want to repeat
  • Thu, 00:44: Shannon gave us a ride back to Beach Club, we unpacked and organized some more. Will have leisurely breakfast then go to event registration
  • Thu, 10:42: Up this morning not too early (7-ish) and went to Captains Grill in its temporary location at Ariels Grotto.
  • Thu, 10:43: Chocolate waffles with marscapone cream, always good.
  • Thu, 10:44: Back to room to gather our pins to head to registration and the pst-registration trading that always goes on, room had already been made up
  • Thu, 10:47: Off to Coronado Springs for registration. Lots of construction and they build a new DVC resort there, but no problem parking at 10:15 ish
  • Thu, 11:55: Almost to head of registration line. Have seen Shannon and Rocky and Debbie and Debbie and made a new friend in Denise just ahead of us.
  • Thu, 11:59: They have an example size suitcase for the max we'll be allowed to take into Epcot. Very good idea.
