One of the best times at the world in a long time!

We decided to go to The Studios first. When we got up to the thing where you pay for parking, I got my Annual Pass out. All I said was "I have an Annua..." before I could even finish the sentence, the CM just waved us through. Which I found to be kind of odd, seeing as how anyone with a regular ticket could just say its an AP and get free parking. Anyway, Todd's parents dropped us off and we got on the tram. When we got in the park, we instantly went down Sunset Blvd. For the past year or so I've always talked to Todd and Jessie about Tower and how great it is. I am so happy and proud to say that the first ride at Disney (and any theme park, this was their first) was the awesome Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. They both loved it. Then we went on 'Coaster. I have not been in the regular stand by line in years, lol. We only had to wait for about 20 mins, but the line was moving the whole time. They loved that too.
Even though we just did the 2 "Big Weenies" and left, I'm sure that in a few weeks I'll be able to bring them back, and we could spend a full day at each park. Next we headed over to Animal Kingdom. I totally forgot to get the brothers the 1st visit buttons until now. So I went over to guest relations and got them. When we got in the park, I wanted to test out the PhotoPass screen-shot thing. Which actually worked pretty good.

We had planned on going around the park counter-clockwise, going on Dinosaur first. But the line for that was so long, it was all the way outside, like it was when it first opened back in '98. And thats the only other time I've seen it that long. So we went right over to Everest. Again, in the stand by line for the first time in a while, waited about 20 min again, moving the whole way. We did that twice, then decide to go have lunch at Rainforest Cafe. That was a great move, even though we had to wait for about 30 min to be seated, we dodged the real rain outside. Todd and Amber shared a pizza, as did Jessie and myself. Then we went over to Magic Kingdom.
Once there, we did Pirates, Haunted Mansion, and Space Mountain. I should mention that at each park we were at, we spent about 10 min window shopping. Well, Amber & Todd did, so Jessie & I had to just walk around behind them until they were ready to go do an attraction. Which is ok I guess. But I can't wait till I can take Todd & Jessie by ourselves. Just the guys. Anyway, we were gonna go to Epcot, but we had to meet their parents back at my place before 9pm, so we decided to skip it and head home. I'm pretty sure they had a blast and would love to do it again. I know I had a ton of fun sharing the magic with my friends. I've been waiting to do that for way too long.
