Cast: Me and DD7
Hotel: Beach Club
Dates: March 25-29
Our flights got in 15 minutes early in Sanford (flew Allegiant). Car was waiting for us and whisked us off to Beach Club. We were in our room at BC by 9:30 PM. My DD said she wanted to go swimming when we arrived but then decided she would rather head over to Epcot for EMH. So, we changed our clothes and off we went! Only rode a few of the smaller rides but gave us a quick fix!
Saturday morning, we were up bright and early to make Rope Drop at 8 am at MK. We walked up to the bus stop just as the bus arrived. It was just the two of us and one other family. MK was pretty empty and got a few good pictures outside the park. We waited at the rope, sang along to Good Morning, waved to the gang and we were off!! My only complaint about rope drop is there are some adults (not kids) who think pushing and shoving is okay and running over 7year olds is acceptable. I had a few words with a woman who pretended not to understand me (I say pretended because I heard her speaking English later). But we weren’t going to let a few rude people ruin our day!!
We were one of the first on Space Mtn. Rode it and grabbed a FP for later in the day. Then headed to Pooh - love the honey walls. Then off to Peter Pan, Haunted Mansion, FP for Splash, Thunder Mtn Railroad, Pirates, Magic Carpets and Jungle Cruise all before 10:30. What a great morning with no lines! We then used our FP for Splash Mtn. We had lunch with Pooh and gang at Crystal Palace - I love a few of their salads on the lunch buffet. We then rode the other rides that didn’t have long lines (Small World, Hall of Presidents, Country Bears, Philharmagic). We really enjoyed seeing Mickey in his patriotic gear and got our picture taken with him - about a 5 minute wait. Everything we did seemed to be timed perfectly. We walked into shows just as they were loading the theaters. The weather was gorgeous - not too hot - just a perfect day. My DD did the pirate makeover - empress pirate - and really enjoyed it. We did the dessert buffet at Tomorrowland Terrace - love watching Tink fly overhead - and then called it a night. It was really hard to see much of the detail for the Magic, Memories preshow from the terrace but what we could see was amazing!
I just want to say that the CMs were outstanding! They were so pleasant despite the crowds (it got really crowded around lunch time) and they were working really long hours. The CM who let us in at rope drop at 8 am was the same CM who was waving goodbye to us at 10:30 PM!!
I hope to be able to post pictures sometime this weekend.
We were back at our hotel by 11 and both fell fast asleep.
