We are getting worn down. Today we went to Disney Hollywood Studios for a quick ride on Toy Story and a walk through the history of Walt Disney before hopping on a bus to lunch. Toy Story is a shooting game where you are graded on points and accuracy. I beat Kelli every time on points...she beat me on accuracy.


From there we went back to Disney Hollywood Studios for another ride on Toy Story (it's a really fun ride!) using our fast pass and then a ride on the History of Films.

We ate a lot this week. A lot. Lunch today was at an Irish pub. I had a nice Guinness beer and then Shepherds Pie. For Dessert I had the best Bread Pudding of my life. It was too much. Oooof

From there we went to EPCOT and rode Mission to Mars and Test Track. Mission to Mars has two lines...a Green line and an Orange line. The Green line is for those who don't care to be subject to G-Forces, Spinning or Motion Sickness. Kelli and Peggy (my mother in law) went on the Green Team. I was surprised how rough the Orange Team was. The ride is so rough that puke bags were available for each rider. The G-forces were 2 1/2 times the force of gravity.


The Orange line is for those who don't give a crap. There are MANY, MANY, MANY warnings along the way. I thought they were over doing it. Nope. That ride is intense. The ride simulates blasting off from space and landing on Mars. Riders sent in a cockpit which apparently is attached to a centrifuge as we were subject to at least 2 1/2 Gs during the launch. From there you are turned and twisted all around. Crazy. Even I the pilot got a little queasy on the ride.


We then ate dinner. Yeah more eating. We are now back in the condo for the night.

Getting around Disney is easy. We spent a lot of time waiting for the right bus. Each time it seemed the bus we wanted took the longest to come. There would be multiple buses going to other locations besides where we wanted to go.

It's been a fun week. Tiring. Kelli and I have been out and about for 12 hours a day. Walking a lot. No idea how much weight we gained. I am looking forward to sleeping in my own bed. The bed here is a double. Kelli and I are used to spreading out on our king. Yeah.

My two nieces are here this week. One is 2 (almost 3) while the other is 1 1/2. Both are still in diapers. Tonight my sister in law Jami changed Haley (1 1/2) right in the middle of the living room....4 feet away from me. Poopy diaper! Hello! Gross! Gross! Gross! I was shocked. There are four wonderful bathrooms in this condo. All nice and big. She chooses the living room floor? Then to trump Jami.....Kevin changed Gianna (almost 3) in the same spot. Gross! Gross! Gross!

We are planning to go to Vegas in March. No idea where we are going between now and then. We will need a break to relax from Disney.
