Now I can start our trip report.
Left 9 October for my DD home in Pasadena Maryland at 1:00PM and arrive to stay over night at 4PM.
Next morning my DW and I (Mary and Ron) were taken to BWI to take our flight out at 8:35 while waiting for the flight we ran into a party from the our area that was also were heading to WDW. That made the wait especially fun. The flight on SW was excellence and we arrived 15 mins ahead of schedule. Once we landed we headed for the Magical Express and just made it in time to catch the bus to French Quarters. We were the last stop but who cares when you are in WDW.
At the hotel we were handed our room keys and we belined it to room to drop off our carryon things and then off to EPCOT. We walked into Epcot at noon. We then headed for the World Showcase and the Food and Wine Festival. First stop need a cold beer. That means England. We decided to walk around the world just looking at the different booths and what they offered for food and drink. We had ressies for France for lunch. Have to have my Grilled ham and cheese from there every time we go down to WDW.
We were very disappointed in how the Festival was set up. There were to many booths that were close together or were place at choke point that making it very difficult to get to them, plus for some reason it seem that all the southern states were out of school andd at EPCOT. They could have space the booths like the do the booths during the Flower Festival. They could have put some on the walkway to the Lands and some just as you are going into the World.
Beside that we love the food of Korea, Beligum, Ireland, Canada and Italy. Thw wine were acceptable but the beer s were excellent. We left EPCOT around 8PM and headed back to the room since we were getting a little tired and wobbly.
Woke up at 6:45 and did our morning things and were out the door by 7:30. Had ressies for CP at 8:30. Walked into MK at 7:50 and headed for CP. Only about 10 people ahead of us got in line and were eating breakfast by 8:10. That the fastest we were ever seated. After were had our pics taken with all the charcters were head out to play. Expected alot of people there but was surprised that there were hardly anyone in the park. First the Pirates, then Big Thunder, then Splash, which we were stuck for 15 mins at the bottom of the last falls. If your want to drive someone crazy just have them listen to those two buzzards over and over again. The good news was that they gave us each 5 fast passes the didn’t expired until the next monday.
Then it was on to The Haunted Manison, then It’s a Small World, Peter Pan, Philamagic, Buzzlightyear, Space Mountain, People Mover and The Speedway. Since we have done all the major ride we decided to head out and go back to the hotel to rest a little before heading back to Epcot. As we were walking out the rest of the guests that were missing earlier were walking in. So we had managed to do all the above by 1PM.
