What a day!! Started with RD, straight to Soarin, got right on. Headed to TT, got right on, Did TT again, small wait maybe 10 minutes tops, headed back to 1st 60 day out fpp for 10am for Nemo, on the way stopped at fpp kiosk and took out the old, rfid hard tickets from last trip in 2013, and used them to snag another Soarin, Lwtl, and Figment. (THANK YOU AUNTB & all my liner friends for that)
So, Did Nemo, Soarin a 2nd time, had breakfast in the land pavilion, then LwtL, Turtle Talk with Crush (loved turtle talk btw) DD13 had to convince me to go. Glad she did. then Figment, the used 2nd 60 day out fpp for SE at noon.
All this done by 1pm and Bus to SSR was actually sitting there when we exited the park. Back at resort by 1:30pm. All 3 of us took a wonderful nap, freshened up and headed back to park for 4:30pm with a 5:30 60 day out fpp for FEA.
Took the car this time because we missed the bus by mere seconds and didn't feel like waiting 20-30 minutes for next one. Short drive. 10 minutes tops.
Headed to Visa Character spot, met Mickey and Goofy, Then on way to FEA decided to ride the 3 cabeleros first as we were well within our window and there was no wait.
Did FEA next. Wasn't sure I wanted to waste a Fpp for this ride 60 days ago. DD is 13, not quite a Frozen fan, Wife and I have seen the movie but not on our must see list. Anyway, actually loved the ride. All 3 of us did in fact. Would definitely add it to our fpp list again. Wouldn't RD it. Still prefer the order we did it ( SO, TTx2 then use fpp for FEA)
After FEA, we power toured WS, Did stop to watch acrobats, and a Moroccan band, but other than that we were just thinking about food at that point and with all the F&G kiosks out there we knew if we didn't keep our horse blinders on we wouldn't make to our ADR @ GG for 7:30. Made a Short stop in Canada, DD13 and DW wanted to see it . Then straight to GG for 7pm. Took us early, out by 8:15ish, Then to final sdfp for illuminations .
I know alot of people don't think much of I lluminations but we loved it.
Anyway a few notables about our trip so far:
SSR is wonderful, shhhh don't tell anyone. I want to keep this one a secret. Don't want it to get popular. I like how it flies under the radar.
My wife, who's not a big Disney fan says , " I don't remember Disney like this, it seems like every ride we go to we just get right on"
Thank you Liner friends for all your tips and tricks, with this beautiful resort and a solid TP, I think DW will actually be planning me a 50th WDW birthday next year.
