Well it's been a long time since I posted a trip report but I figured now's a good time as any to come back to it.
If you would like to see all the photos I took yesterday, please visit below. 2010 - 09/25 - SummerInFL's Photos
We parked at the TTC, this way to magic!
The Halloween decorations are up and add to the festive atmosphere.
I love the green leaves, really makes things pop.
Lots of construction going on all over the parks, I was very happy to see this.
I cut through the Emporium to head towards Adventureland.
I love the geek angle they are promoting!
As I was about to exit through Casey's Corner I noticed they have cut off the doorway, so I had to exit through the ordering area itself. I get "why" they are doing it but it seems like another way to cause a traffic jam. IMHO
Ariel and Prince Eric in Adventureland doing Meet N Greets.
This seems newly painted, either that or I just haven't paid attention. LOL
The crowds were nice and light, we didn't wait anymore than 20-30 minutes for the biggest attractions.
Given the recent thread on Pirates DL vs Pirates WDW, I wanted to see if I could see the attraction the way that others do. I don't see it, I love this attraction and it's always been a favorite of mine. *shrugs*
Loved the Halloween themed merchandise.
Stopped for lunch at Columbia Harbor house, just one thing to note. I used to love the fish filets you could get here. Now all they have are fish sticks, larger fish sticks but the unmistakable shape is prominent. Disappointing.. (I apologize I didn't get a photo)
Still, a great place to people watch!
Then we headed through Fantasyland so I could get a look at the construction going on.
IASW is closed, not terribly disappointed but I can't wait to see it open again.
30 minute wait for Peter Pan? Love it.
People Mover!! Yay!
These ducks were so cute, walking around like they were touring the parks themselves.
Stopped by to watch Carousel of Progress, the TV's outside are going out so you can't even watch the introduction with Walt in it.
I had a People Mover car all to myself, it was nice.
We rode Space Mountain twice at the request of my daughter, I have to say I really can't hear the music, except the part where you are spiraling down to the bottom. I don't think it really adds much to the experience. :/
At that point we decided to head over to Epcot but on the way out I couldn't help but notice this budget friendly couple who shared an extra wide scooter. Stay awesome.
Mmm Food and Wine Festival. I can't wait.
You know there hasn't been a day that I haven't walked through these gates and not been excited to explore after see SSE.
The ponds in this area were all drained, I'm assuming for maintenance, still looked good though.
My 2nd favorite attraction is Living with the Land. The temperature changes between the rainforest, the desert and the farmhouse has been broken for a long time. I was happy to find that it was fixed and really added that realism element back into the attraction.
The new restaurant at the Mexico Pavilion.
I Loooooove Epcot at night..
While touring the France Pavilion and helping my daughter complete her latest Kim Possible adventure, I looked over and saw this. That BEAUTIFUL Beauty and the Beast stained glass window with the cute gargoyles inside has been removed to expand the perfume shop. What a shame.
We ended the night watching Illuminations, sorry no photos but it was a great end to a wonderfully Disney filled day.
