Howdy all! It's late and I'm tired, so here's a quick recap!

So we got going a bit later than we wanted to this morning, and after some false starts (why why why don't all interstates have feeders??? why?) we made it to Pirate's Cove minigolf, when the rain that had been falling since we left picked up and we decided minigolf was not going to work today. Perhaps on Friday. So we went to our backup plan and went to the Morse Museum, which had some really neat and amazing glass works of Louis Comfort Tiffany (and a few other artists) - there were paintings of his too, but the glass works were the really impressive part. Before that, we stopped at a cafe and had lunch, and I was good and didn't have an enormous cookie that looked really really good (by this point, it had about stopped raining)

After that, we went to WonderWorks, which is...well, it's a little hard to describe. It has a lot of fun and educational things for kids to do, and most of the fun stuff was fun for us, too! We experienced winds that approached hurricane strength (65 mph), made giant bubbles, I landed the Space Shuttle, and stuff like that. And we played a game of Laser Tag at the end, too! We then headed for dinner at Pebbles Island Grill, which was decent but probably not worth the price. Stopped by the room to change and then walked to Downtown Disney (a bunch of shops and stuff that we'll see more of tomorrow) to the far end to see the Cirque du Soleil show "La Nouba". I've never seen a Cirque show before, and it was really amazing (which is good, because the tickets were a bit pricey). Lots of crazy crazy acrobatics, people spinning in wheels, people climbing up walls (done by gaining momentum on trampolines), neato trapeze stuff, guy riding a bicycle on a tightrope upside get the idea. It was a very cool show, and I bought a CD afterwards. Walking back to the hotel, we got some ice cream...mmm...and then did some midnightish swimming.

That wasn't so quick. Anyway, we're going to the Animal Kingdom (another Disney park) tomorrow, followed by dinner at Seasons 52 (hopefully) and then Pleasure Island (which is an island inside Downtown Disney with clubs and bars and stuff) and probably general Downtown Disney stuff, too.

And I saw in the local paper that Deep Throat was revealed today. Read about it! :-)


Comment from destroyerj:

You, um, do plan on going to the Magic Kingdom sometime while you're there, yes?

Comment from gregstoll:

Hee hee. Yup, that's on Saturday. And then, after we're tired from that, long long drive on Sunday!

Comment from onefishclappin:

So, this is supposed to be officially "Gay Dayz" right? Have you noticed any real difference? Or does it just seem to be standard Disney crud? Fewer kids? Just curious...

Comment from gregstoll:

Yup, today was the first "Gay Day" at a park (we saw some guys wearing shirts that said "Zip a Dee Doo-Dah" on the front, and "Zip a Dee Gay!" on the back - I can't imagine ever wearing a shirt like that!) We definitely did notice a difference today - people are supposed to wear red, and there was some red, but we saw some cute couples not wearing red. I'd expect Saturday (Magic Kingdom) to see a ton of people. But we'll see.
