Then we went on the Rocket Ships, where we saw this poor couple struggling to fit into their rocket.  He gave her a kiss after they got in.  Very sweet.

All in all a good trip.  My feet hurt from mistakenly wearing flip flops.  I still hope we can get out there to see the new Fantasmic Dragon.  Rumor is that he is debuting this Monday!  Anyone wanna go?
