Mary and Ashley, aka my nerdy besties from Canada, visited last week, arriving on Sunday and departing very early on Friday. I was able to get Monday though Thursday off, plus a few extra hours on Sunday (thank you, ERs). Sunday evening, I was able to show the ladies a bit of Downtown Disney before they were ready to pass out in preparation for a full day of Hollywood Studios on Monday. I was able to get them into/onto most of the park's highlights, like Voyage of the Little Mermaid, Star Tours, Rock'n Roller Coaster, Toy Story Mania, the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular and Muppet Labs 3D. We had a very fancy lunch at the Hollywood Brown Derby, the park's signature restaurant and headed back to Downtown Disney for the evening.

Monday night was the second round of the Amazing Race - Magic Kingdom. In spite of all my exhaustion, I somehow got roped in again, this time with one of my managers as a partner (they all want to to play too, it's so cute). It was another grueling evening of running, sweating, dodging guests, rides breaking down (I'm looking at you, People Mover and Splash Mountain) and in my case, very loud trash talking. Tasks this time included tracking down the Orange bird, (Sunshine Terrace, for future reference), riding Splash Mountain, researching the elevation of Magic Kingdom, locating the Fuente de la Fortuna (near Pirates of the Caribbean) and finally ending up at the TTC. By some freaking miracle, and the fact that a lengthy task included American history, Chase and I totally freaking won! By a good ten minutes, too. Up side - Chase won't terminate me. Down side - I am still so freaking sore. The adrenaline of winning only masked the muscle pain for a day.

We burst into O Canada as the pictures were taken.
Note: It's officially hurricane season, meaning we can expect a thunderstorm here every single day sometime in the afternoon. Preferably, when I'm not down at the cart.
Thanks to: Chase for being a slave driver/ Amazing Race champion, and Arin for the two dozen Aero bars.
