So many things to report about this year's Bats Day since I didn't do my usual multi-post ramp up to the event as I did last year. Overall it went well. There weren't as many attendees this year, which I think was due in part to the Hotel. The hotel they had been using in previous years raised their prices and the organizers had to find a new one. Sadly this place wasn't as large and there was a dentist convention the same day so I think a lot of people had trouble parking. BUT, the people who did brave all the dental congestion were awesome! Got to see some friends, make some new ones, meet some followers and just have an all around great time.

Sunday, the actual Bats Day in the Fun Park was entertaining to say the least. The whole day was one of those days where strange little things would go wacky. We tried to get on Big Thunder and it broke down after we were 30 minutes into the 50 minute wait. When we went back, we got on the ride this time, but it broke down with us on it just before we got to the end of the ride. Plus side to that was that it was in the mine shaft so we weren't out in the sun AND we got to do the behind the scenes evacuation. They did also give us a fast pass good for any ride so we totally went on Space Mountain with it! We over ate all day because there were limited edition Bats Day treats and we went on a scavenger hunt to find them all and we never seemed to run into any of our other friends, but those are all minor little things. It was a great day overall. Great weekend.
