Would love to see the video, but it says the video is private.

“This video is private”

I guess we aren’t part of the “Cool kids club!” How very DISboards of him! 😉
June 10, 2012 at 10:26 pm
*pout* time to go to another board who shares 😛

Another ploy to get us to sign up for EasyWDW Premium.

Don’t leave negative comments. You may be banned :).

It’s really more of a… Shelbyville video.

What a boost to my already frail ego! Wasn’t cool in high school, not cool now. Nothing changes! : (

I’m guessing it was the massive thunderstorm yesterday evening. It started precisely after Hyperspace Hoopla ended. I’m pretty sure the Emperor was responsible. We ran for the Friendship boat but it wasn’t running due to the storm, though they let people hang out on it for shelter. Eventually when the rain eased up we went for a bus. My 3 year old was totally chill about it, but my 6 year old was freaking out. Fortunately, he thinks he met Santa Claus on the Friendship boat. 😀

Cue Nelson Muntz. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPcBpF6DTWk
Oh wait, it shows as private for me too. Bummer.

How about Junior High/Middle School? 3 great years – I laughed, I cried…ok, maybe I just stumbled around in a state of anxious/depressive confusion. On the other hand, I had a group of equally uncool friends that got along really well (we still do) so it all worked out.
Of course, with the new anti-bullying mandate I’m sure it’s all rainbows, unicorns and duffy bears now.

What everyone else said.
June 11, 2012 at 6:48 am
Weepstah, thanks for pointing out that I’ve been totally uncool for my entire life!! : )
June 11, 2012 at 7:03 am
Yep same here, no can see !
June 11, 2012 at 7:25 am
Video is not working. SHUT IT DOWN! 🙂

Private for me too – it’s raining here as well so I get the idea though…
June 11, 2012 at 7:49 am
I wonder if it’s as bad as the rain here in NW Florida. Pensacola got two feet of rain in the past couple of days – second largest amount of rain even (including during hurricanes I believe). Crazy. Fortunately we’re an hour east and didn’t get quite that much, but it was a lousy weekend…
June 11, 2012 at 7:53 am
I’m guessing that is a thunderstorm video, but I’m not worthy. 🙁 We leave in a few days, maybe the deluges will be done by then. If not, never fear, we have heavy duty ponchos packed away.

This is ‘bad show’.
If you wish to view the video in playing form, you may want to postpone your visit to easywdw.com until a later date.
June 11, 2012 at 8:19 am
Dang Jenny, you totally beat me to it!
June 11, 2012 at 8:36 am
We’re not worthy, we’re not worthy, we’re not worthy……..
June 11, 2012 at 9:01 am
Oooh … I’ve been let into the inner circle!

I’d love to think that I was one of the “cool” kids, but I think it’s more likely that the video was fixed so everyone can see it. lol
I did enjoy the part where you jumped when the huge lightening/thunder hit. 🙂
June 11, 2012 at 9:22 am
I must be incredibly cool because I got to see it!
June 11, 2012 at 9:34 am
I’m a member of the private club! Very cool storm.
June 11, 2012 at 9:49 am
Rain at Disney? SHUT IT DOWN!!i!i!
June 11, 2012 at 9:59 am
Bet rain/thunder was requested by Jeff – ruiner of vacations.
June 11, 2012 at 10:12 am
Just like a Texas storm! Love it! Unless I was at Disney World….
Made me think of this account of a huge storm hitting during the Celebrate A Dream Come True parade. It is old but hysterical! http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/features_orlando/2009/06/celebrate-a-dream-come-true-rain-magic-kingdom.html

We watched this storm roll in from the screened in pool area of our villa. It was very eery. There were pitch black clouds, lightening, thunder and then pouring rains. Luckily the weather at AK that day was nice. Storm started later in the evening.
June 11, 2012 at 12:10 pm
It was my BIL, SIL and their two kids’ last night at Disney. My niece texted me and said it was a bad, bad, bad storm. They flew home today so I should be hearing about it soon.
June 11, 2012 at 12:29 pm
It was a storm like I’ve never seen! My entire extended family of 10 decided to go for it and leave Epcot. The water running off the ball made it impossible to see or move forward! We can laugh about it today, but wow!!!
June 11, 2012 at 12:57 pm
I must be “in” it worked for me. 🙂
Sunshine State needs new motto I think.
June 11, 2012 at 1:13 pm
And it rained……and rained…….and rained.
“The Deluge” is bad form. If you wish to experience your vacation in the way it was intended, you may want to consider cancelling or postponing your trip until non-delugious conditions can be assured.
And now the real reason for all the rain – someone offended the spirit of Big Thunder mountain during the refurb.

Wow, what a light show! Not sure of the problems others reported but I was able to get in. My daughter lives in Ft. Lauderdale and frequently tells me about the lightning storms they get. Now I know what she is talking about. Great video.
June 11, 2012 at 3:27 pm
It’s just like Hitchock’s Rear Window except tediously dull.
June 11, 2012 at 5:31 pm
What I would not do to head for the hills at the World – many many hilarious stories through the years from the various deluges. I guess I will just have to enjoy our drought here in the Midwest 🙁
June 11, 2012 at 5:36 pm
That’s how it stays so nice and green there. 🙂
June 11, 2012 at 6:18 pm
Back in 2000 I was at Epcot in June at it started to rain, it was so awesome, everyone ran like it was liquid fire dropping on them instead, my g/f (at the time) and me enjoyed being wet because it was still like 85-90 degrees out.
June 11, 2012 at 7:43 pm
I love the laugh on the video…I can just imagine the person nearly falling over at the sight/sound of that last big lightening/thunder combo! I’d be running back inside too!!!
June 11, 2012 at 8:18 pm
That storm was crazy! We were at the Studios watching the Hoopla and as soon as it finished, the skies opened up. We booked it to the bus stop for Riverside and were stuck there in that lightning while waiting in a LONG bus line. My son was convinced that he was in the middle of a hurricane. It was a miserable experience last night, but does make for good stories/conversations today.
June 11, 2012 at 11:45 pm
LOVE watching a good storm when at Disney. Felt cheated last July when I didnt see one drop of rain during our stay….but we are from the UK and NEVER see storms like that here!
June 12, 2012 at 6:56 am
We talked to a WDW bus driver the next morning who’s lived here for 11 years and said that was the most intense and prolonged lightning storm he’s seen here. Our daughter also was at Epcot when it hit and saw lightning set off one of the fireworks mortars in the lagoon.

I remember being at Disneyland once during a thunderstorm. They get rain but they don’t get thunder/lightning that much. People were freaking out every time there would be a rumble of thunder. It was really funny. This was the first week after I moved out there (after a typical stormy Summer in the midwest) and relatives of my husband said “You got to be here for that crazy storm last week!” Um….it was a few rumbles of thunder and some lightning. Big deal…haha!
June 13, 2012 at 1:25 am
Great, don’t get lightening like that in the UK, thank goodness though.

We were having dinner at Cali Grille, watching that storm roll in. It was INSANE!!! But we went to MK for EMH around 10:30 pm and hardly anyone else had the same idea! We were fortunate to be dry, but I felt terrible for everyone who got stuck out in it.

My son and I were in the Magic Kingdom the night of the 10th. We were in line at Aloha Aisle when Evan looked toward Pirates and noticed the big clouds headed our way. As we grabbed our Dole Whips (priorities, people) I brought up the local radar on my droid and saw the HUGE red blob heading right for us. We double-timed it into Tomorrowland just before the storm hit. We wound up riding the TTA for 4.5 laps as the skies opened. It was wild to see the speedway flooding so you couldn’t see the lane bars, lightning flashing with one crack I’d swear hit Space Mountain. The next day I checked the weather updates and it said we got 2.93 inches of rain in less than 75 minutes. The only plus was after being walked off the TTA was the wait at Space Mountain was only a few minutes – though they left the evac lights on for the TTA so space was a light brighter than usual. 🙁
