Dano's Monorail Crawl will be held 8 weeks from tonight. Be sure to include the Crawl in your plans for a night of fun. Now for a bit of fun here.....some Crawl trivia for the next 7 Wednesdays.
Today's question: The first Crawl had 9 people in attendance. When was it?

Was that the one when Ed sported his leisure suit? I hear that he looked like he was right out of "Saturday Night Fever!" Must have been....mmmm....1977? LMAO!

We'll be checking in 49 days from today. Is anyone else hoping for a soft opening or annual pass / DVC member preview of Toy Story Land? That would be so amazing! Oh yeah...in just 50 days, we'll be drinking our way around the Seven Seas Lagoon! Did you all customize your MagicBand?

    Answer to last weeks Crawl trivia: Thursday, 5/8/14 --> Dan & I could not make gay days that year, but nevertheless decided to try to start a Monorail Crawl.
    This week's question: Dano's 2nd Monorail Crawl was held during Gay Days on Wednesday, 6/3/15 --> How many Crawlers attended?
    Stay tuned for the answer next Wednesday and remember, just 7 more weeks till this year's Crawl.

    Repeated this on the Facebook thread:
    Just, finally, booked my trip from the 29th- 4th. So excited for my first GayDays trip in years! (Obviously, since I was lazy and didn't do the 60 day pre-book, I didn't get the FLIGHTS OF PASSAGE fastpass, which is the only one I cared about- but I don't mind getting to AK early and reading books in line-- even for many hours!)
    I will probably post this question once every few weeks, but does anyone want to do a group meal (Sanaa [my favorite], Garden Grill, Biergarten), or a tour (I've done several, and will definitely again do the cheapie- EPCOT's "Behind the Seeds") together? Would love company- just trying to meet people! Msg or post me at my Facebook account here!

    Dano: didn't customize. Using an old BB-8 band. :)

    Hmmm...I am going to make a guess on this one. 20? I do know that it keeps growing every year!

    Here is some encouraging news: the wait for Flight of Passage is one of the most interesting I have ever seen at a theme park attraction. There are a lot of interesting things to see as you are waiting in line for the ride. The ride itself is awesome!

    I LOVE the _PETER PAN_ and _SOARIN_ queues (and, to blaspheme, the _Harry Potter_ and _Mummy_ queues at Universal). I love the interesting. I also typically rise well before 6am, so getting to a place early without FastPass doesn't scare me if there is one particular attraction I want to experience. So I'm not scared!

    Anybody staying at the Ft. Wilderness Campground this year? Thinking about a mid-afternoon beer at Crockett's Tavern around 3-3:30pm on Wednesday, May 30th, just for tradition sake. Think of it as maybe a "pre-pre-crawl" before catching the boat and heading over to Geyser Point at Wilderness Lodge for some food and another beer for the beginning of dano's monorail crawl.

    Solved it. Doing a night-time tour of animals at AK; it includes a FoP ride. (I didn't do it for the FoP ride; the tours at Disney are always great; the FoP inclusion is icing on the cake.)

    Ooooh! I know! I know! But, I will wait to answer for a few days to give somebody else a shot at this one. If you were there two years ago, I am sure that you will remember. I am still wondering if those pants came with AA batteries.

    We've got a few extra spots at Crystal Palace and Biergarten. Get in touch with EDCCFO on the boards if you're interested.

    I’m getting more excited as Gay Days is just around the corner. We’re less then two months out! We’re flying into Tampa on Friday, May 18th and will spend the evening at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Saturday, May 19th, we’ll spend a good portion of the day at Busch Gardens then head back to the casino for the evening. Our plan (weather permitting) is to visit Adventure Island the morning of Sunday, May 20th. We’ll spend time with family afterwards. Thursday, May 24th, we check into Orlando’s Sunshine Resort and will be there until Tuesday, May 29th. During our stay, we’ll visit Sea World and Aquatica in Orlando, as well as the four theme parks and two water parks of the Walt Disney World Resort. We check into Disney’s Boardwalk Villas on Tuesday, May 29th and will be there until Tuesday, June 5th. During our stay at the Boardwalk, we’ve got an itinerary that keeps us on WDW property. Forty days from today is the monorail crawl and we’ve got tickets to Riptide as well. If you’re around the Tampa or Orlando area during our visit, feel free to connect. Looking forward to all the fun and festivities to be shared with friends old and new.
