Disney World October 2015 Trip Report Part 6: Disney Springs and MNSSHP

After several consecutive days of early wakeups to hit the Parks, sleeping in on this day was lovely.  I drifted awake at around 9:30am and was immediately excited for the Halloween Party that evening.  We had a long list of things to do before then, so I got everybody into their bathing suits, and we went down to the Big Blue Pool again, with a load of laundry.  DD wanted to keep sleeping, so she stayed in the room with strict instructions to be ready to walk out the door by 11:45am.  The water was a little chilly in the pool!  I guess because it was so early in the day.  But we had a lot of fun in the main pool, and especially in the splash area 🙂

Disney World October 2015 Trip Report Part 4: Epcot and Hollywood Studios

Fresh off our magical first Disney Day, we got up bright and early to hit Rope Drop at Epcot.  We had FP+ at Test Track for late morning, and since Epcot FP+ operates on a Tier System, we couldn’t also get one for Soarin’ on that same morning.  Our best bet was arriving early and going directly to The Land pavilion to soar over California before the standby line became prohibitive.  I am an aficionado of ride soundtracks, and the Soarin’ music is my absolute favorite.  To say I was looking forward to riding it again is an understatement.  We had good luck with the busses, and found ourselves about 5 families back from the rope, waiting impatiently for the Cast Member (CM) to announce the Park officially open.  We had left the stroller at the hotel for the AM shift of Park touring again, so as soon as I saw the CMs moving to open the ropes, I lifted my little guy onto my back- to avoid him getting caught up in the crowd, and also to speed our walking pace.
