Dam Disneyland! Changes and Developments Taking Place At The Resort

Rain had been forecasted for Friday.
And I thought that I would have to wait until Saturday to go to the Disneyland Resort.
It wasn't until the day before that I saw on the weather app that it was to take place in the afternoon, starting at 1pm.
I thought to myself that I could do this. If it doesn't start till 1pm, I could easily be out and home by then.
Friday morning comes and I see clouds and sunshine. So far, the day is starting out like the app had stated.

I make my way to the Disneyland Resort.

  1. The Jedi Apprentice's name is Nedress for anyone wondering and thinking it sounds like a certain Star Wars Villain.

    1. Thanks for that info.
      When I first heard her name called out, I was like what's here name? And how would it be spelled?
      "Negress?" "Egress?" "Nedris?" "Tetris?"
      I had searched on line for help, but never found a result.
