So my 4 hour shift evolved into 7 and by the time it was finally time to leave I lost all ambition to hit the parks so this is as close as I got to hitting the parks today :(
and for the record its soooo much easier to take moving pics with a point n shoot instead of the SLR...

So I really like it when I leave work and can hear the faint strains of the Street Party at the MK to the point I get the songs stuck in my head and 'tube them to hear the whole version... I am also excited that I finally will get to restock my pictures as after my 4 hour shift for the lunch at work I'm heading to the parks for the first time in awhile (I am not a fan of the 90+ degree, 100% humidity thing)

One of the groups we have gave all their attendees starter sets of pins so we dug out the pin trading board, set up shop and they LOVED it- I brought in most of my "junk traders" for the board which gave them plenty of choices (since when you have 100 + people and only 3-4 styles of starter sets you get a TON of the same pin) and then today I took most of the duplicates to Epcot and traded them for tomorrows board. I do have to say though that trading 60+ pins in one day is my limit (and I think I hit every CM with a lanyard) and found none I personally needed...

The stuff we have to carry around every day... Radio, Keys, Info Packet, T Handled 5/32 Hex Key aka the door wrench not to mention whatever else ends up in my pockets.. I miss the big ol apron I had at Mart- I could carry a LOT more things than the 2 mini pockets I have now...

So I *was* going to watch Endeavor launch from Top of the World tonight but due to lighting that has been postponed at least till tomorrow... So I went through my pics to find a laugh and well this is what happens when you worry about taking the pic of the giraffe that was awfully close and not realize what way said giraffe is facing... Alas its sadly the best pic I ended up with so you get what you get :)
Better late than never... So tonight I ate at Sanaa which is the new restaurant in Kidani Village (DAK Lodge) and WOW was it good... I was a bit hesitant but I shouldn't have been worried as everything was amazing. Afterwards we headed to the MK and rode pretty much everything we wanted to with little waits (and rode the monorail!) until the MK closed at oh 2 am...
Ill post more pics of Sanaa tomorrow but I'm exhausted

My all time favorite show at WDW was Tarzan Rocks! at Animal Kingdom... I will never admit how many times I saw the show (or how many times I still watch it via DVD or YouTube) and I will not admit to the framed picture I still have on my desk...
10 years ago today it opened- 3 years ago it closed and I still miss it (and will forever hold a grudge to the Nemo musical)
(and if you are wondering why the weird picture- Tarzan sadly pre-dates my digital camera so all I have of my pics here are from one of my scrapbooks..)

Just catching up on my week- Monday night was spent at DAK, which I love as the park is usually not open after dark. Riding Everest in the dark is AMAZING as is simply wandering. Since I didn't know I'd be headed there before I left home I only had my little camera which doesn't deal with dark as well hence the lack of great shots (Really getting spoiled with my SLR)

Today was spent at the Studios. When the rain hit while visiting the Animation Gallery- I "encouraged" the group to hit the Animation Academy.. They all enjoyed it and I could recognize Eeyore on everyones paper... I am always amazed that mine are recognizable as even my stick figures usually arn't... Hence why Im a scrapbooker and not an artist

The 'rails are flying again.
I didn't realize how much I had been affected by this until I saw Green running the 'rails and the sheer joy of seeing us return to a "new normal". By the time I left they were running the standard amount of 'rails on all beams (though I only saw 1 on Epcot but I also didn't follow that beam today on my way home like normal) and I'm pretty sure Green will have its own special place in my 'rail world now.

The day the 'rails went silent
So today was a rough day as a former 'railer and as a lover of the Monorails (especially of Monorail Purple) to see the beams sit silent in the aftermath of the accident. Most of the day was spent in discussion, speculation and pure disbelief trying to comprehend it all.

Happy Fourth of July aka Happy Fireworks Day!
So tonight I was lucky enough to see 3 fireworks shows (2 just happened to be at the same time) We started at the Poly beach to see the MK show again (I have *never* seen that many people on the beach before!) which was almost more amazing to see there than in park due to the 2nd launch point in the lagoon and *all* the perimeter shells (Hence why that made pic of the day vs Epcot)... Then we booked it to Epcot to see Illuminations (since it won over the Studios) though hadn't figured on being able to watch all the Studios show from where we were standing during the first part of Illuminations (which was distracting) More pics will be posted tomorrow but as I have to be at work fairly early...

Happy Almost 4th of July! Tonight I headed to the Kingdom to see their fireworks show and see the "new" Hall of Presidents and I wasn't disappointed by either- I was *very* impressed with the new HOP show (in fact saw it twice tonight) and absolutly loved the fireworks (200+ pictures later) and while I couldn't pick them all as pic of the day- look over >>> for a link to more pics from tonight
