    Wow, it's a hot one today, am really struggling :(

    As you know we went into MK last night to watch Wishes. Wasn't the best experience unfortunately. We were herded like cattle and squashed in, we were in the street by Caseys. The fireworks themselves were fab as always though, photo below :)

    We did risk the queue last night for the Dwarfs Mine Train, line said 60 mins but only took us 25. Unfortunately this ride isn't for the pooh shaped people. The carriages felt extremely squashed, the bar that you have to pull down is an individual one and your legs have to go in between the bars. As your knees are practically touching the front car there is no leeway and it's very uncomfortable. I now have lovely bruises on both legs, so won't be riding that one again :(

    Anyway on to this morning, we were in MK for rope drop. It is soooooo busy at the moment, not too sure why, anyone would think its Christmas time with the volume of people. I know the food and wine festival is on but, blimey theres so many people.

    We had a fastpass for lunch at Be Our Guest too, wow loved this place. We pre chose our lunch online so were told to find a table and a server would help us, we could choose any of the 3 dining rooms, we were also allowed to wander around the others to take photos :)

    Anyway enough waffling from me, photos below for you all :)

    You are not waffling! I love reading your comments. :yes: Your photos are so nice. Thank you for sharing them with us. It is sad in some quirky way, to be stuffed in the parks, isn't it? :sigh: I don't know why it's busy right now. All schools are in session here.

    Today was, hot!! But no rain, so the muggy factor wasn't as bad.

    The bar is very similar to the individual ones they use on Everest but smaller. I couldn't stretch out so there was no where for me to go and it was painful :(

    MK is always busy. But, Monday is a federal holiday and many schools have a break. My birthday is always close to this holiday and we used to go to WDW but they stopped giving discounts for right around this time.

    Great photos!

    Great photos, Lisa! We watched Wishes from almost that exact same vantage point a couple of weeks ago! It really was packed!

    We discussed the crowds with a few cast members when we were there and a number of them mentioned that some of the southern schools had begun having "fall breaks" during late September/October and that might explain the increased crowds...
