Yep, I won a dream FASTPASS! But lets get to that later, for now this is my trip report
We left the house at 11:00, and got to WDW at about 1:00 (pretty good for a 120 mile drive ) And we went straight to the hotel, its not anything worth bragging, but lets just say its one of those ‘last minute booking’ types of hotels. After getting lunch at Giordano’s (my kinda place) we headed to Disneyworld, and as we went under the welcome sign the sing ‘Im already there’ was playing. Ahaa what a coincidence!
Now, we were suppose to hanf around the hotels for the day because the Seasonal passes weren’t suppose to go into effect until the 15th, but when we went to go and renew my mom and brother’s seasonals (I already had an AP from a trip in June with WDWGirl) And the lady told us at the desk ‘and you can go to the parks on the 17th.’ Our jaws dropped. That was on Friday, and we were supposed to leave Saturday. SATURDAY!!! So after thinking and waiting at the Polynesian for a while (sitting on a hammock getting tan) my mom decided to switch her and my brother to annual passes.
The building we stayed in last year with WDWGirl
we went to the parks that day too. I rode Space Mountain three times, and did a triple mountain whammy (as quoted by Stacey ) And watched wishes.
We got up at 7:00 a.m. and headed straight to the parks at about 8:15. This day we went to animal Kingdom. What a waste of time. IMO that park is a half day-er, because the only rides we went on were everest and DINOSAUR.
Im the one doing the peace sign. Ahaa i totally stand out in this pic!!
We went to Kali so I could get my quests stamped and then we realized my mom had taken the quests out of her pocketbook. GRRRR!
So then we went over to MGM studios, where I rode Tower of Terror until I couldn’t feel my knees.
The anticipation made me jump out of my seat!!!
I got a good picture of That awesome Hat and the theater (in the same picture)
Oh, that hat is so cuddly looking!
Then we rode Star Tours (waste of space IMO) so pretty much that day was not worth it.
The best part of the day was going back to Giordano’s for that awesome stuffed pizza!
This day we went to EPCOT and the Magic Kingdom. At 9:00 when they opened the park gates I RUSHED to test track for FASTPASSes. When I put the first of them in, guess what happens? The machine ate my AP. So at that point I was pissed and called over a CM. He couldn’t find the stupid thing. Then I went back to my mom who then ordered the CM to reopen the machine, where the AP was laying on a metal ledge under the ticket scanner. The time you ask?? 11:00 a.m. We headed back to the Land and rode Soarin’. Here are some pics of the new interactive game in the queue line. Pretty cool if you ask me:
Ahaa it was so fun
Lean hard left? no thanks, i feel like taking pictures instead
It's Your Bird against the others!!
And of course our team came in 1st place
We headed back to test track for our FASTPASS return. Later my mom and brother wanted to go on Universe of Evergy, and I decided to go back on Test Track (single rider lines) and what do ya know? The ride broke down. Ahaa my luck, want to know what is more like my luck? My cellphone battery dies, so I had to wait for 45 minutes on a humid bench waiting for my mom and brother to get off the ride, but I have a pic of the Muppet Lab, which I will post later We went into Mouse Gear too and got some cute pics:
My little sister is MATCHING!! Not. jk jk
That's my Paris Hilton impression Ahaa, im even wearing the right glasses for the part!!
Then we headed to Guest services to reserve a spot at Tony’s for lunch, and went over to the newly renovated SSE Postshow:
Well, i guess what people are saying is right. SSE might looks better without that monstrosity blocking the view... and by MONSTROSITY i mean the CRANE. That wand is still my #1
The new Siemens SSE postshow centerpiece
Ahaa the 3-D glasses worked on my camera, how funny
That was a fun game to play
After that fiasco we went back to the magic kingdom. Typical night, including wishes:
The amazing Grand Finale!
We left the park at 10:30 to beat the crowd and finally got home at 11:30.
~~DAY 4~~ MY DREAM COME TRUE~~
We headed to the Magic Kingdom at around 8:30 and got there just in time for the park opening. I rode Space Mountain, and so did my brother for the first time! WOO!! And he loved it, now isn’t that something. Next he want to conquer Tower of Terror, that will be fun. Then we walked to Splash Mountain, and my brother insisted we get fastpasses and ride Big Thunder Mountain first. That was a smart move. After riding Splash Mountain a CM redirected our boat to a Dream squad member named Joe who gave all 8 of us DREAM FASTPASSES!!!! When we showed my mom what we won she spent the next hour laughing at herself saying ‘that sucks that I didn’t go on Splash Mountain with you guys!’ And to think if my brother did not convince my mom to ride BTM first, we wouldn’t have won these FASTPASSes!
A story to tell for a long time
We didn’t use them, since we only got 2 and we had 3 in our party, so it would not be fair, plus these may be worth something soon (since they are still unbroken, who knows?) And from then on we just has people coming up to us saying ‘where did you get that pin lanyard? It looks cool!’ Ahaa you gotta love tourists like them And of course I called up WDWGirl in delight, since this was pretty cool that at least one of us got something out of this whole gimmick so far And at around 1:00 we went to Tony’s Restaurant and had the most amazing Pizza Bianca and Tiramisu! The perfect Italian combination! Ahaa Later that day my mom had to go to MGM for some geek wars hat my brother just HAD TO HAVE, and I was stuck at Magic Kingdom, but I didn’t mind it was pretty cool being there, and I also turned in my VMK cards, without needing to have the Kali quest stamped. But anyways, later we went back to the hotel to rest for a bit and when we re-entered Magic Kingdom, I had a little fight with a CM:
ME: (puts AP in ticket scanner, and the ticket was bent so it didn’t read right or something, so I took the AP and went to the other scanner next to me)
CM: Man first off you gotta let go of the ticket fo it to work.
ME: I know that, the ticket was bent
CM (not caring what I even said unbends the AP and puts it in the scanner) Boy you cant just put this bent pass in the scanner, what were ya thinking?
ME: (getting pissed)
CM: Now put your finger on the scanner (as if he is talking to a baby)
(so I put my finger on the scanner and got through the gate, my brother already being on the other side)
CM: yo should take lesson from this kid, he seems smart enough to work a ticket scanner. Now go ride rides and have fun (again, baby talking)
And I was ready to jump him, and so was my mom… and brother. Ahaa
No one talks to an AP Florida Resident like that!!
And about one hour later I felt REALLY sick, so I went back to the hotel and rested.
We went to Downtown Disney on our final day at WDW. I went to Basin and got my usual (bath bombs, the CMs there know what I get every time Ahaa how funny ) Then we ate lunch at Ghiradelli (yea, banana splits for lunch, what could be better?) And I finally got my monorail, which my brother seems to enjoy more then me (its going to be mounted on my wall and the track will be all along the perimeter of my room, so that my new project ) And we finally left at 2:00 and headed home.
Ahaa I know how incredibly long that was but yea, if I didn’t win that dream FASTPASS I wouldn’t have posted this TR, but yea, the trip overall was pretty fun!
Cant wait for September’s trip!!!
