Its Tough To Be a Bug is not closed, was there enjoying it with my wife last week.
Ready for MA World Explorers!
When Tusker House adds characters to lunch, will the price increase? Will it then be more expensive than dinner?
I didn't realize that the Mom's Panel was paid - I thought they were just 'paid' with their initial orientation trip. But anyone interested in applying, in the past they've closed the application window early after they had 'enough' applications. So don't procrastinate to the end, you might just miss out!!!
Baby Jabali is very cute and so very small next to his Momma!
The Magic Kingdom also had a very moving Flag Retreat ceremony on 9/11. The voices of Liberty and the Magic Kingdom's Philharmagic performed and were joined by a Naval Color Guard. I was in the square so I am not certain if the Main Street shops closed but during the moment of silence it seemed the entire park went silent. I have never heard the MK so quiet.
Here is a two part You Tube clip if anyone is interested in watching it.
As a bonus you can see me watching the ceremony when they focus on the band. I'm wearing a blue shirt with my arms crossed in respect holding my hat which I removed for the ceremony. This was a very moving ceremony and brought me to tears on a few occasions as I struggled with my emotions that day.
