"Bolt" had a sad ending?

Matt, are you sure you saw the whole movie, buddy?

And, yes, Bolt himself was voiced by John Travolta.

Just a couple of things, I did the wishes dessert party back in October with my daughter (3), wife, mother in law, and grandmother in law. We got lucky and our table was in the 2 nd row of tables. The view was spectacular and having a nice place to sit forthe show was great. The desserts were mostly fantastic for us. There was one thing (can't remember what) that was just okay, but overall well worth the price.

Also, just and FYI- Pal Mickey still works in the parks and was very fun to use.

Love the show!

For a first day w/ kids (arriving mid afternoon for us)... we hit Magic Kingdom and go straight back to Fantasyland. First ride is generally Small World. Great first experience for smaller kids...short line, happy "children" singing, low scare factor.

We generally have a light afternoon hitting some low line kid friendly attractions followed by an early dinner at Chef Mickey's (always a good thing to meet the Fab 5 on day 1 of your trip) then back to MK to take in the nighttime parade and fireworks.

Perfect first day! :-)

Didn't Scopa use the intro for today's show a couple of shows ago?
Getting to the Poly

There is a boat that runs from Wilderness Lodge to the Contemporary that starts at about 7:15 or so. The boat to MK I don't think starts until 8 AM I believe. The resort monorails start at 7 AM so that might work too....since the TTC is the next stop after CR.
