We missed a Thursday last week but Day 2 Part 1 is now live for your viewing pleasure.
Today we hang out in the park and enjoy the warm Spring weather. We watch the band play outside the Phantom Manor and join Goofy for his Garden Party!

Hi,

Loved your video diaries. I just did a solo trip Mon/Tue following virtually the same format throughout the day. Also you stayed in the same place as I did - it looks like the same room!

Hey Colin
That's great! I'm glad you liked the videos. We've stayed there twice now and the rooms all seem like copies of copies!! It's very easy to get lost in there.
How was your trip?

Wow! You packed a lot in!! It must be nice going solo. I've been in some big groups which is super fun but can be really frustrating at times! I guess there are upsides of both.

I noticed Phantom Manor was closed during your visit and I think I just found out why. I was sorry to read in the news that a 45-year old cast member (an electrician) was working behind the scenes in Phantom Manor and was electrocuted. His body was found by staff and the attraction remained closed for about a week. Very sad.

Yeah it was really sad. I felt really bad for the CM's who had to stand there dealing with annoyed people when someone they worked with had died. I think most people were ok with it though and they had some live music going on there which is always nice to see!

Day 3 Part 2 went up over the weekend.
I wanted to try something a little different at the end of this vlog where I talked about a part of the park, it's history and what it means etc. So i took a little nerdy tour of the Arcades on Main Street. I hope people find it interesting? I'd love to know what you guys think?

I don't think I'm ever going to get into Orbitron after watching that! You may have saved my dignity.

I took a guided tour so bring on the nerdy details. :)
