We started some what early, we got up and made coffee and had breakfast in the room. After we got ready we headed over to DHS to meet up with HB and her DD for rope drop (9am). At every park all week they would let the guests in about 15 minutes early and the parks would be open, so in essence the parks all opened about 15 minutes early all week. THere was no actual real rope drop. We arrived just as they were letting guests in
and we met up with HB right inside the gate. DH, DD11, HB and her DD headed over to ride RnR. DD8 and I went to get FP’s for Toy Story. There was no line for the FP’s yet and our FP time was 1015-1115. The standby line was already 30 minutes at that point so we opted against that. We walked around and checked out some store while we waited. We met back up with our group and stopped for pics with piglet. HB was making a autograph book for her DH for his B-day with all the characters pics and signatures in it. Then we headed over to the great movie ride. It was HB and her DD’s first time. I know it’s old and it’s seen better days, but we like it! It always makes me want to run home and watch a bunch of old movies.
After great move ride we went on star tours. We had a great ride sequence
We had the middle part of the ride before but the end was new. It was time
for our TS FP’s so we headed over there, always a fun ride but I would never wait 190 minutes in the stand by line for it. That’s just crazy to me. HB had been given Light’s, Motor, Action, Stunt show FP’s this morning (as had just about everyone else in the park) so we headed over there. This was the first time for us seeing the show, HB had seen it in Dec. It really was a fun show. We all enjoyed it. After the show it was time for lunch. We had lunch ressies at SciFi, yay! We had done this before and really enjoyed it. It was a first for HB and her DD. I had a veggie burger with sweet potatoes fries and DH had the burger (I think) both the girls had kids meals. I have to say my veggie burger was amazing. And the sweet potatoes fries I could not stop eating, they were so good. I know HB and her DD had onion rings and shared an entre. But I don’t remember what it was, perhaps because I was so engrossed in my meal. LOL! The girls love watching the old movie clips and the ambiance in SciFi is just fun. Oh and we were seated in a red car to match our tee shirts. I was stuffed from lunch but I had to try the infamous carrot cake cookie from the writers stop (and since we were right there) yum, it was very good.
The girls had been begging to do Muppet vision since they have not yet seen
it at WDW (they have however seen it about 300 times at DCA) so we promised
them we could see it this trip. We were surprised how this theatre fills
up. Usually at DCA we are one of about three groups watching the show. DD8
wanted to go to the Muppet store, she is a huge Muppet fan. We did Walt-
One Mans Dream next. This was again new for HB and her DD. We spent a good deal of time looking around before the movie. Then we headed over to the Animation Academy and got a pic with Pooh. The line was way to long for Sorcerer Mickey so we opted against that. It was hot and we were all tired so we all headed back to our resorts for some pool time.
We got back to the resort and headed back to the pool. DH and I had adult
beverages while the girls swam. After awhile we all started to get hungry
again (it had been a good 5 hours since our last meal and we usually don’t
go more than 3 without eating at Disney. Good thing Disney calories don’t
count. We decided to walk over to Ft Wilderness and see what we could find.
It is such a pretty walk over there and DH wanted to see it. We stopped by
the stables on our way over and took pics. We needed up getting takeout
from trails end. We ordered two entrees and a order of BBQ wings which was more than enough food for all of us. We sat and ate at a table around the side of the porch. We walked around some more after dinner. We were going to take the boat back but decided to walk. It was getting dark but DH and the girls were hoping to see some deer. DD8 complained a little about the walk back but this child never stops moving, she did not take one nap the whole time we were done there and believe me we tried. We did see a few deer on the way back and it was pitch dark by the time we got back. I think I did a load or two of wash before calling it a night. The girls of course were asleep in no time.
Tomorrow. 7am rope drop at the MK and CRT!
