MONDAY NIGHTS AT DISNEYLAND XX

 

 

Another mile stone in the books. I think back to the single digit days and I'm happy to have made it this far. I'm happy to have built a cool group of friends that roll out every Monday night. Thank all of you for sticking around and looking forward to all future Monday nights! 

This particular Monday night was super busy. The haters want to say it was because kids are on Thanksgiving break or it's because of the Christmas holiday at Disneyland. The truth is its a mixture of all three. I welcome all of it. Except for the rude lady at the security check. I made it through bag check with no problem. I get to security check and there are two lines. The family in front of me are piled up all waiting to go through the left side. I'm kind of in a rush and would like to utilize the right side. I politely say excuse me as I try to shimmy past this lady and her stroller. She instantly freaks out and tells me that she was here before me. I said that is fine, but i'm trying to go through the right side. I didn't want to wait for her whole family using the left side when the right side was wide open. She proceeds to tell me that she has to go down the middle with her stroller. I repeated myself again. I don't think she realized that there were two lines open. This is where I feel like my DTT shirt once again get validated. I'm tired of talking to this lady. So I just juked her and made through security.

My friends wanted to ride Star Tours to check out the new scenes from The Last Jedi. I had already checked them out on the Saturday before. The wait time was projected to be a 75 minutes. I was ok with it because I wanted them to experience what I went through on Saturday. The line flew by. Mainly because I was having fun talking comic stuff with Felix. It was so cool to see my friends have the same reaction I had the first time I saw it. It still amazes me how Disney can still take my breath away with little touches of magic. I've been on Star Tours a million times and didn't think they could do anything to amaze me. I was completely wrong. Thank you Disney. 

You know MNAD is not official until we ride Astro Blasters! I've hit over a million the last two times without hitting Zerg more than twice. I've developed this weird strategy and I'm hoping to one day be number one on that top ten list. I made it to 8th place, but I can do better. The shop when you exit has really great lighting. We waited for like 20 minutes to find the right person to take our photo. The guy who took our photo was decked out in Golden Knights gear, but he made the cut. Leaving the store we ran into Ash Costello of New Years Day fame. I was excited to see that she rolled out to the event. 

Walking down Main Street I saw these two guys wearing The Story So Far and Turnstile merch. I waved them down. My friends got embarrassed and kept walking. Sorry I forgot your names, but you guys were super chill. Shout to Azusa for rolling out. I popped into the magic store to pay my respects to Johnny, but to my surprise he was off. Sorry if I was disrespectful to you Will. You know I got mad love for you. I don't want to say too much, but Johnny has been distant since Boston. I wonder whats going on??

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT. WE'RE NOT STOPPING ANYTIME SOON. PLEASE IF YOU'VE NEVER COME OUT ON A MONDAY. DON'T BE SHY. COME HANG AND LET'S KEEP THIS TRAIN MOVING!
