Ok so we had to use up our last day of our 3 day passes. We also need some time together…with about 40,000 other disney phanatics.
Stayed at the Pop. Of the values is our favorites.
Ate at; Yak and Yeti - Loved it, Pop food courty-thingy - good enough for late dinner and breakfast, brought meal replacements bars - you have to be kidding me…ok so I had one of the cookies on the way up to MCO.
Rode: EE, KRR, Safari, DINOSAUR. Feel like I’m missing something. Nope that is all. We had quality ride experience not quantity :laugh: Spent most of our time just walking around. We got soaked on KRR…took me 4 hours before I dried out.
Shows: Finding Nemo. Was ok…probably not going back. 20 minute version of the movie with puppets and songs. I feel they have a lot more to explore with some pretty well known characters but I guess it is more for the kids and Pixar did own it when it was built so they probably put the breaks on a lot of stuff to protect their property.
Parades: Jammin Jungle is always a favorite of ours. Still humming the songs today. Seems like they added a few new floats and a few more families since the last time I saw it.
Some changes we notice on this trip: Cardboard straws at AK! Tree of Life’s leaves are looking pretty old. Brazilians know a lot of chants and are very good at playing follow the flag. Pop is being taken over by rabbits over by the 70’s building (dozens of them…maybe they are the new lawn crew). A lot more Disney Security vehicles out and about. Our hair drier was unplugged*. The secret resort channel is gone!!! No more cartoons on a loop in the rooms (luckly I have most of those book marked in youTube so I can do my little sing along anyway).
We had a great day at WDW and then spent Sunday morning in Winter Park’s downtown. It was fun to explore and would recommend it if you are look for a break from the Resort (not a kid activity unless your kids like shopping or being bored).
- I don’t know if this is something that WDW is now doing (unplugging hair driers) but it would make sense. Just being plugged in a hair drier can consume 1 watt of power (not on just plugged in). Think about all the rooms they have (5760) and what that scales up to across the whole resort. That is a whole lot of wasted electricity. I only notice this because I unplug everything at home before I leave on a trip (everything but the refrigerator/freezer, answering machine…of course I move the AC to 80 and lower the temp on the water heater). It really make a difference…a little difference.
So when you are done make sure you unplug your hair drier…maybe it will help keep ticket prices down (I guess this would be the same for in-room coffee makers, etc).
