Another later afternoon trips to the parks. We rode Jungle Cruise and Pirates of the Caribbean. 

April 28 - EPCOT

EPCOT, Spaceship Earth, Disney World

I remember this day, but I don't remember this day. I believe it was a later afternoon trip after I worked.  We apparently enjoyed noodles and a Kirin in Japan

May 22 - Hollywood Studios

Hollywood Studios, Disney World, Florida

As has been our routinse this year we made other later afternoon trip.  We had cocktails at the Brown Derby again, got our Annual Passholder summer magnets, rode Toy Story Mania and watched the Star Wars show.  I really really miss The Great Movie Ride.

May 28 - Magic Kingdom


It was a crowded day at Magic Kingdom, we arrived mid afternoon.  I don't have many pictures from the day, so I am thinking we rode the people mover and Carousel of Progress and then left.  We headed east to the beach afterward.

June 14 - Hollywood Studios


Tara was back in PA for a wedding, so I made a solo trip to HS and met my long time friend from AT&T for lunch at Sci Fi diner.  We didn't get a good picture of us together, but I did meet a "boy"!

August 17 - Hollywood Studios


After 2 long months of no trips to Disney.... work schedules are hard, we took a drive to see Toy Story Land finally.  I was not feeling well and it was really crowded! I was overwhelmed by the crowd and sadly underwhelmed by "the land",

September 27 - EPCOT


We made a trip to EPCOT for the Food & Wine Festival and to get the ever coveted Annual Passholder magnet.  We did Spaceship Earth, Tara rode Test track and I people watched.  

November 16 - Magic Kingdom


Another long time in between trip.  I am sad that we just don't have the ability to make the drive as oftern as we used too.  I really wanted to see the castle with the "dream lights' but we did not stay until dark.  It has just been really crowded every day we pick and it is just not enjoyable. We did the Jingle Cruise,  people mover and Carousel of Progress.  We had other fast passes but they were later than we wanted to stay.  

This would be our last trip for 2018. We wound up getting to the parks an average of once a month. Still makes our passes worthwhile.  I hope 2019 is a little better.

Disney Daze - 2019

March 3 - Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom, Cinderella Castle

Tara and I finally had schedules finally allowed us to head to Magic Kingdom after my shift at work.  It has been a long time sincevwe have been able to make that work,  We took a spin on Buzz Lightyear and Haunted Mansion. We were both hungry and none of the Park options appealed to us so we headed to Outback, a bit of splurge for our birthday dinners!

July 5 - EPCOT


Tara and I finally had a day off where we could head to EPCOT.  We didn't stay long, we were able to ride Frozen Ever After, a ride we had only done once before.  EPCOT was very empty! It is between "festivals" and it looks so bare! Lots of changes going on at the entrance.  Big changes before the 40th anniversary in 2022.
