I was late to MNAD. Or was I? There's not really an official start time. It's normally whenever we all meet up. 

I was rushing to Downtown Disney to catch the new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. On my way there I got a text from Johnny. He said he needed to talk to me. So I rerouted to the magic shop. It was unexpected, but I'm always down for the homie. While in the shop. I noticed my buddy Armando walking through the shop. I called him over. No joke he was walking with a group and I thought he was with them. He came over and just chilled. I questioned if he needed to get back to his group. That is when he told me he wasn't with them and he was at the parks alone. I was kinda surprised he was alone, but invited him to hang for MNAD. It was like deja vu all over again. Me in the shop waiting for Brett and Taryn. Eventually they show up. They were super stoked on watching the new trailer. Also Taryn picked up a ton of tickets to see the movie. I was super stoked on that. I'm so excited to watch Star Wars with real friends. 

Last week we made a pact to ride the new Guardians no matter the wait time. I was so happy that the group was ready to make good on the pact. We headed towards DCA.  

I've never hung out with Armando outside of a show. I was stoked to have him for MNAD. It's so cool that everyone is so nice and we all get along. 

We arrive at the entrance of Guardians. Wait time is 90 minutes. Armando was on the fence about it, but was interested in checking out the new ride. He just renewed his pass after three years of not having one. Honestly the line looked pretty bad. It wrapped and snaked outside of the normal queue. With the good group we had. We just kept each other company and had great conversation. So great that I can't even remember what we talked about. So that made the 90 minutes fly by.

This was the first time the four of us were getting to experience Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark. Walking into the fortress, I noticed it was darker than normal. Not all the lights were on and some of the collectors artifacts were covered up. I didn't realize until I heard the security scanners glitch out that this was all apart of the new experience!! I kinda felt dumb haha. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but if find yourself in DCA. I highly suggest making time to check it out! I've said this before. Guardians is the best attraction that Disney has put together to date. 

This MNAD was another special one. We obviously were that for MNAD, but it was also Taryn's birthday! We've known each other for awhile, but recently have become real friends. Taryn, I appreciate you. You're a great friend to me and I cherish that more than you know. I hope you had fun on your birthday! 

I want to thank all you for always stopping by!
