Day 6: Thursday, check into BC/HS/EP
7:30 load up, check out of SoG, head over to BC for early check-in. All done by 8:30.
Drive over to HS and not there’s no line to enter. Hmmm, it’s not an emh day so what’s going on. They opened early. We’re in the park and at TSM before 9 and there’s already a 50min wait with a noon FP return time. :pirate:
After TSM stand-by I must get a Red Velvet Cheesecake Cupcake at Starring Rolls. YES!!! I came and I conquered!!!
While waiting around for our noon fp’s, (must ride TSM more than once, it’s a right of passage:happy:) I got a text from Jess to head over to Backlot Tour. I was planning to skip it but Shy ended up getting picked to play the one that get’s soaked. This is her 1st visit and she has NO idea what to expect. Jeff & I stroll around looking through the streets waiting for out FP return. After our 2nd TSM ride we decide to head back to the resort with Em tagging along. Seriously we had that often, not just her but all the girls at our heels. I kept asking them “what are Y’ALL going to do”, heavy emphasis on the Y’ALL. We even gave them loaded gift cards for whatever while on their own and they still stuck with us. What is up with kids these days.
We had a couple hours to kill before our dinner adr at Boma so we walked into EP since it was cut short the day before. Our room was bottom floor and 5 deep from the bridge to the back gate. Perfect. An hour into the park and I don’t want to leave, so off to Guest Services to cancel Boma and book Mexico. I Love their margaritas. This is why I hate making adr’s.
The other girls took the boat back from HS by 4 and went to their room for the rest of the evening. We tried to get them back out, even if only to the pool. Nope, not interested. Room service for them it is then.
Surprisingly Jeff’s nephew from MI happened to be in the area with his g’friend visiting her dad last week so we met them at ESPN after Illuminations for drinks/apps. There are Gardenias lining the whole BW area from the BC. It smells heavenly :wub:. I could’ve stayed out there on a bench for hours just breathing the air. A wonderful ending to much better day.
