Anyway, in EPCOT now amd javing a blast!
This is the time of year us New Englanders have been waiting for. Nice here, shitty in Florida and Arizona.
Haha! How did you get footage of my trip?
Also, this was the end of week 8 of #RetirementLife. I like noting it in this thread. It's a good diary for me.
I was looking for a gif ofbugs hitting a windshield........they ain't out there. I'm surprised.
They're called Lovebugs... and everyone hates them. They're horrible to wash off a vehicle.
I saw those while I was looking for gifs of bugs splatting on windshields.
"Opening on May 31, the new Star Wars land is. Required, reservations will be. Colored wristbands, guests will have to wear. Asked to leave after four hours, guests will be. Trampled to death, let's hope nobody is."
After hyping a $1-billion Star Wars land, how does Disney get visitors to leave?
I'm excited to visit Star Wars land... maybe in the next year or two
Coincidentally, the wait time is expected to be between one and two years.
Week 9 of #RetirementLife comes to an end with no Disney trip. Had to replenish my savings from last week's car work so it would be irresponsible to also go to Disney this week.
Disney has drafted a distinctive deal and done some disturbingly drastic downsizing.

It's flower and garden fest in Epcot right now:
Near the Sleeping Beauty castle is a wishing well and figurines of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Walt Disney had originally planned to name the castle for Snow White but decided instead to name it for Sleeping Beauty (Princess Aurora) because the Sleeping Beauty animated film was in production at the same time Disneyland was being constructed. (My posts are so educational!)

Week 10 of #RetirementLife is at an end.
No Disney for me this week. I haven't totally decided yet but I doubt I'll go next Monday either cause I don't want to fight Memorial Day crowds. That means I won't be back until August since after that the long 2 month blackout begins.
However, I did have a nice outing today:
saw the Marlins play the Mets and win 3-0. My first time in the new-ish Marlins domed park. It was a very nice. I went with a friend from work and it was super cheap. 2 tickets, parking, 2 water bottles and 1 hot dog was a grand total of $60. That's a good day for a good price. The 35 miles to get there was a quick jaunt down I95 and it was a fun day at the ballpark.
It's safe to say this sleazeball will never again work for Disney.

I'll give him this: if that's what you're into, it's the place to be.
"Hey little girl. Would you like to take a pohl?"
Week 11 of #RetirementLife is over.
It's official, I now won't be back at Disney until at least August 12th thanks to the loooooooong blackout.
