Disney World October 2015 Trip Report Part 9: AK and MK

Last full day at Disney.  Boo!  I was determined to “squeeze the juice” out of the day, to use a Latin expression (‘sacar el jugo’).  Let us commence to squeezing!

We started out by sleeping in just a bit.  Had I known the transportation rigamarole we were about go through, I might have gotten up earlier.  But I didn’t, so I blissfully slept like a corpse in that dead-comfy bed (see what I did there?) at the Animal Kingdom Lodge.  When I woke up, I headed straight to the balcony to check out our Savanna View in the daylight.  Oooooooh, looky here!

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.
