That picture worked out so well- I love when the people behind us end up playing along without knowing it!Love all the character meets - how fun!
Looks like the people behind you were in on it - they look pretty relaxed too!
I honestly can't wait to try the Skyliner! I think it will beat the heck out of waiting for a bus to come.
So funny- by our powers combined, we could conquer all of the thrill rides at Disney!You girls really love your rough coasters! I'm the opposite of you though - I will do ToT without hesitation, but RnRC is a no-go!
We definitely made a ton of memories- i'm so grateful that we had the opportunity to go. If I get my way, we'll have many more sister trips in our future.I'm so loving your trip report. Such wonderful sister memories you're making. You had an awesome first day. Long but you accomplished so much.
I can't believe you were able to get up and make rope drop on day two.
Agreed! I really appreciated that the longer stay allowed for a more leisurely plan.. But, with a longer trip and so many extra events planned, it was much easier to slow down.
I only noticed when I'd look up and the view would be totally different. I never felt rotational in the moment.. It's very subtle, and at times I didn't even know we were still moving
3/4 was our WS day and it definitely didn't feel too crowded. We were able to pick up bonus FPs for TT and FEA after a 5pm FEA FP which I was excited about. The only time we really felt the crowds that day was trying to grab a seat for dinner at the Mexico qs place.ouringPlans says that Hollywood Studios was an 8, and Epcot was a 7. Hollywood Studios definitely felt crowded, but Epcot felt deader than dead. Probably because we got there later at night.
It was so nice- I think I'll always prefer to have longer trips than shorter trips where I feel like I have to squeeze a whole bunch in. Of course the tradeoff is that the trips will probably be less frequent, since longer trip = more money but I'm ok with that.Agreed! I really appreciated that the longer stay allowed for a more leisurely plan.
Nice! I think Epcot handles crowds well- when we went to flower and garden later in the week it was busy, but it didn't feel overwhelming. There's so much space for everyone to spread out.3/4 was our WS day and it definitely didn't feel too crowded.

So glad to hear it's not just me!! Maybe it's because he's not wearing a hat? I feel like I usually see Mickey when he's wearing a hat.I love your evening at Epcot! I loved Garden Grill and I definitely remember thinking Farmer Mickey seemed really short too
That's a great way to remember them!haven't been to Garden Grill in years but do remember we enjoyed our meal there.
Note about Chip and Dale... Chip has the chocolate chip nose
Our first MK day was the best- definitely started the trip off on a high note! The 15 hours definitely took a toll on us though we got to the fireworks dessert party pretty early, and since there were already people there I wonder if they open it up 90 minutes before showtime now, even if they don't publicize that. I wrote we got there at 6:50, but according to the time tag on my first picture it was closer to 6:40. So pretty close to 90 minutes before the 8 pm show.I'm definitely in for a sister trip! Traveling with your sister is the best!
I'm glad you were able to plan a fun trip after your really tough year. It sounds like you have a really positive outlook and I hope you're currently doing well!
Wow, 15 hours at the Magic Kingdom?! We once started at rope drop and left around 11, but we also had a large dinner break at the Polynesian in the middle. I'm impressed!
Your early hours at MK looked very successful! I'm also glad you enjoyed the dessert party! It's great to sit and enjoy the fireworks rather than be smushed among the masses. I've been to the dessert party a few times and have always enjoyed it. It looks like they now let you enter long before the fireworks? My past visits it opened an hour before the fireworks - good to know if I plan to go again!
Good gracious, that's a big crowd at HS! I'm glad your plan to venture right worked well - three rides on RNRC (in one morning!) is excellent!
That's another positive review of Garden Grill! I'm leaning toward the breakfast (as the cinnamon roll people keep posting looks DELICIOUS!), but I think I may book this for our next trip. I haven't been there in years, so it's likely time to return!
So fun- I would love to try an early breakfast there. Maybe on our next trip.Our last trip we went to breakfast in GG entering through International Gateway. Some fantastic pics of the empty locations and the kids in front of empty Soarin. Enjoyed the meal as well! Can't wait to hear about AK!
Glad to hear you're enjoying it I'm super excited to see what they come up with for the new show- given how popular Illuminations is they'll have some big shoes to fill!Enjoying your trip report. We are going in May and it will be bitter sweet watching Illuminations, knowing that it will soon be over. On to bigger and better things!!
Thanks for following and thank you for your kind words!Following along. Glad you are doing better.
I feel like Epcot is a very polarizing park. Those that love it, LOVE it. And then there's us, who could really do without it. There's definitely things I like but if I had to skip a park, I'd skip Epcot easily.Epcot is my least favorite park as well. Not sure why. There are some things I love there but the park in general doesn't excite me at all.
