    Sung to the tune of: Escape (The Pina Colada Song)
    Made famous by: Rupert Holmes


    I was tired of my routine, and I needed a break.
    A getaway with my girlfriends, reservations to make.
    So while I sat there thinking, I surfed the 'net in bed.
    And on the Walt Disney Website, there was this Special that read:

    If you like the Tower of Terror, and getting caught in the rain
    If you're not into schedules, and you don't mind weight gain
    If you like eating ribs 'til midnight, and drinking beer until late
    We've got the trip that you long for, come to The World, and ESCAPE.

    I didn't think another moment; I booked the trip right away.
    Emailed both of my girlfriends, told them to call and not delay.
    Then I waited with high hopes, for my cell phone to ring,
    And I smiled in the instant when I heard them sing:

    Yes, we like the Tower of Terror, and getting caught in the rain.
    We're not much into schedules, we are into parades.
    We've got to meet you in Tomorrowland, and cut through all this red tape.
    At a ride called Space Mountain, where we'll plan our ESCAPE.


    More to come...

    Girls, feel free to start your pre-trippies when you have five minutes :D

    Except I am NEVER going on Tower of Terror or Space Mountain. I'll send my deputy on SM but even he's not going on TOT again! :shocked025: LOL

    But I certainly agree on the spirit of the song!

    Maybe I could just pretend to sing those bits and stick in Mission Space instead - mmm, that doesn't scan - will have to think of something. :lol:

    Um. Yes. Yes he will. Jon has learned very quickly to do whatever you OR Dorothy tell him to do....and he's also learned not to wear his plaid shirts around Krista :wink:

    DS and I are happy to do babysitting duty while you ride TOT - that ride freaked him pretty badly the one and only time he's ridden it!

    Maybe we can do a group shot on TTA - that's more my speed! :rolleyes008:
