Terry and the children waited in line for the Shuttle Launch Experience.  I chose to abstain after reading the warning below.  That extrasensory combination would have equaled instant headache for moi.

Warning: Shuttle Launch Experience is a realistic simulation of an actual space shuttle launch. The simulation motion includes: Extreme shaking, motions/vibrations, loud noise visual and lighting effects.

    Okay, THIS would get me to Florida. I have a Disney aversion (any theme park, really). Your pictures are wonderful, I can really get a feel for how huge everything is. And I love your new header, Heather, it just speaks J*O*Y to me.

    🙂 Have FUN!!!!!!!!
