It was another good day. DH’s back is still improving. We got to the park right at 10 am. We wanted to grab breakfast at the park bakery, but the lines were atrocious so we didn’t. DSS16 had his heart set on a foot long Mac and cheese dog from Casey’s, so that’s what he had.
We’ve been failing breakfast. POP has been very crowded in the mornings and so have the park options. Luckily, we’ve been eating lunch early.
We started with a FPP for Buzz - there was a lot of disorganization on the lines but nothing major. I did not realize I could spin my vehicle for a bit. I’m sure that’s why I only got 2400 points. Yeah, that’s not a typo.
While we were in line for Buzz, I realized we weren’t going to make our Space Mtn FP, so I moved it to 3:30. We headed over to BOG for lunch. We ate in the west wing and shared our table with a lovely family from North Carolina. The food was meh and the service was meh. The ambiance was very cool. We definitely enjoyed that. We also saw Philharmagic.
Next, we rode Winnie the Pooh, which was cute. They have so many activities for the little kids to do while in line. They also had a meet and greet with Tigger and Pooh right next to us.
Then, we headed over to 7DMT with our FPP. We rode Under the Sea next, which was also cute.
We were keeping an eye on the weather, as we knew a big rainstorm was expected. The wait for the Speedway and Jungle Cruise were both over 40 minutes, so we decided to wait. We missed jungle cruise yesterday due to a downpour, so we hoped to get it today.
We visited the Laugh Factory, which was funnier than I expected. By the time that was over, speedway was down to a 18 minute wait, so we did that.
We got to Carousel of Progress right before the heavens opened up. Once done, it was time for our Space Mtn. FPP. DSS16 decided he wasn’t up for a fast coaster, so DH and i rode it. It was still pouring rain, but we just ponchoed up.
DH has been on the fence because of his back, but he loved this ride as a kid and thought he’d risk it. For all the warnings they give you, it was super smooth ride. Way smoother than BTMR for example. We loved it.
Jungle Cruise didn’t appear to be opening soon, so we headed back to POP. did some laundry and went over to AOA for dinner. They’ve got a lot of nice options and some nice items in the store also. We’re glad we went. It’s nice to have a restful evening. We all needed it. The view of POP from AOA was lovely.
