So DH was having a really rough week at work and I’ve just finished my 3 weeks OFF work (starting new job tomorrow) so Friday at about 2 pm he says “let’s go to Disney tomorrow!” He always says when he’s having a rough time that he needs to be flipped upside down (translate - I need Rock n Roler coaster!)
Well, who am I to question that???
So we invited DS’s friend (last time THAT’S gunna happen!!), called to see if there were any value rooms (NOT), made ressie at a Hampton Inn on 192. (Review: it’s OK for off property. Clean, close and quiet, but it’s NOT DISNEY :nonono2: ) and left yesterday at 6 am for the 3 hour drive.
We to to MGM a few minutes before 9 (that’s cuz I was driving!) after 3 hours of NON STOP YAPPING from the back seat! Man, those 2 kids did not SHUT UP THE ENTIRE WEEKEND :eek: .
Once inside we made the decision to SPLIT UP since the kids don’t like RnR and ToT and those are OUR favorites, and they wanted to see the LMA Stunt show and we’ve seen it. So we decided to meet at Sci Fi for lunch.
DH and I then proceeded down our usual path. Fast passes for ToT and off to RnR, only this time since the kids weren’t gunna ride, we used THEIR tickets and got us an extra set! (smart huh? )
We rode RnR twice, (10 min. wait max each time ) and then off to use our FPs. First time we didn’t need FPs, walked right on. We ended up riding four times. We just absolutely LOVE that ride. If you’re still thinkin’ 'bout work after riding, there is something SERIOUSLY wrong!
By then we were starting to get hungry (no breakfast) so we split a turkey leg (yummy!) and headed over to Star Tours (5 min wait).
DS had made ADRs for Sci Fi at 2:30 so we had just enough time to do Muppet Vision first. The boys were waiting when we got to the restaurant. Teenage boys just love that place, don’t they? The food is just ok, but the atmosphere is a lot of fun. They really got a kick out of the film clips.
While we were at lunch it POURED. Didn’t rain a drop before or after, so we really lucked out.
We decided go check into the hotel after lunch, then freshen up a bit and head over to MK since it was open until midnight!!!
