WOW was it hot and kind of crowded today! :eek:
We started at AK around 12:30, headed straight for EE. Stood in line for about an hour:pinch:, and it would have been half as long if not for those darned fastpassers:biggrin: Such a fun ride though. Useless fun tip: Try waving to the people staring up at you as you are going up the first big hill. See if any strange people wave back at you.:laugh:
Then we did Dinosaur. Pete thought maybe I wouldn’t be scared of it anymore. Well, he was WRONG wasn’t he?!:crying: It was really stinkin’ hot (as Wish noted in my other thread), so we hit Pizzafari where I got beer and pizza, Pete got the chicken parm sandwich and a side salad, and had to ask the manager for the nutritional information on both :rolleyes: and hold up the line as part of his new diet. Let’s just say that I’m glad it was 2PM and not 12noon.
Must have been the heat and the Safari Amber, but I got us lost afterwards trying to get to the car. :whistling:
Then we drive to MGM. I should have known better on the tram, but it was CRAWLING with cheerleaders :noo: We got in line for ToT (45 min), but since the FP line was just as long, we got our tails OUT OF MGM immediately.
Onward to our old reliable for high crowds, Epcot. Everything is packed except for Mission Space, so after a 2 min wait, we get in our little spaceship, only to have our mission aborted and be trapped in the ride for the better part of 10 min. I had to close my eyes and breathe while Pete held my hand. That was NOT cool. We get handed FPs to come back later, and we try to schmooze the guy at Soarin’ to let us trade them in (rather than wait 70 min), but he tells us to take a hike. :dry:
But let me say that we finally ate at the Land pavilion and DARN that $9.99 salmon is GOOD! Got a mini bottle of chardonnay w/it, and I was ready to sleep right there in that booth! Unfortunately, Pete made me get up, we walked to France where I proceeded to offend the French girl at the patisserie with my terrible pronunciation of “gateau fromage” (cheesecake), and consequently lose my phone out my back pocket on the bench. We are just about to board the Friendship boat, when Pete’s phone rings. It’s John, and he says that some French guy just called to say he found a phone (apparently, the strange Frenchman just hit “send” and John was the last person I had called) sitting in France. We run back to France, find the kind stranger, thank him profusely for returning it (checked to make sure he didn’t call Europe), and then received quite a schooling on how to not lose one’s cell phone in the future :huh: :pirate:
Back to the boat, back for a ride on Mission Space with the FPs, then to the Poly for our usual after dark at Disney - cigar for Pete and Malibu Bay Breeze for me relaxing in the hammock together on the beach overlooking the Seven Seas Lagoon.
