About to ride GofG.
The usual non-riders were freaking out. The girl that blacked out wanted to take the chicken exit. The one that gets motion sickness took Dramamine.
They asked me how it was.
“I have never been. I think it’s something like 7DMT that spins in the dark with screens like Remy.”
They looked to the side and there was a boy that had to be 5 years old getting on the ride, and they agreed to try.
To me, GotG is THE BEST ride of WDW. Period. It dethroned RnRC as my top favorite. Slinky will always have a place in my heart.
My eyes were open the whole time in awe. My contacts dried out because I barely blinked. The girl that I was worried about didn’t black out and enjoyed it. The boys and DD12 loved it.
But one of the non-riders left the ride in tears. It was very awkward and I felt really bad for her.
At least no one got motion sickness.
And for most of us, this was the best way to end our Disney vacation. I should have planned to ride it 2-3 times. I will have to go back soon. Maybe Monday before our flight?
The day ends with Harmonius. Beautiful. There was a debate over which one as better Harmonius vs Enchantment.
We arrived 15 min before the start of the show, and I thought the place we got was good enough. I don’t think the park was very crowded.
And that is it for the Disney part of our trip.
I will report our experience at UOR here
We have 4 nights at Cabana Bay with 3 day park-to-park tickets. My main interest: the Velocicoaster. Anything else is bonus.
Oh, forgot to say: there was no time to ride TT with these tickets. Wish we could give them to someone else.
Yes to this!! It dethroned BTMR for me as my new favorite!
This is a great view! Italy?
The view of Harmonius is from the entrance of WS towards the back (towards world of celebration)
You can tell who enjoyed the ride and who didn’t
Those are great! It really kills me how soooo many people have their faces obscured by their hair though.
I hope no one lost their lunch …
Day 11: Check-out / travel day
Always a sad day.
Our flight is not until 9:45 pm though. Some vacation hours left.
We requested a late check out (noon) , which was promptly granted.
The group decided to eat at CB cafeteria. Bleh.
The girls and I went to Starbucks next door. Anything but Cabana Bay food for me.
Line is long here now.

After leaving UOR, we drove to Gideon’s bakery in Orlando. It’s in the middle of nowhere.
Sadly, it’s closed today.
Oh hello there, I’m back!
A quick visit to DS for a proper end to our vacation.
The very first restaurant to the right coming from the Lime garage. The Polite Pig. Works for us.
