Walt Disney World Day 8 Report
Thursday, December 11, 2008
Started off the morning eating a snack in the room then spending some time roaming around the Coronado Springs resort taking pictures of the main pool and other areas I stumbled upon. After making it back to the lobby I rejoined my group and we headed for the Studios. The rain started coming down pretty good as we were en route. We reached the Studios and headed for Toy Story. Grabbed a Fastpass and then decided to hop in the standby line and avoid the rain for a while. Waited just under an hour. After riding we decided to head for EPCOT via the Friendship Launch. When we arrived at EPCOT it was raining pretty hard so we found a spot under the cover by the ticket booths at the International Gateway and waited a bit, then moved into the park and waited under cover of the gift shop. The rain let up a bit so we hiked over to the American Adventure for a quick bite to eat then to watch the show. After the show the rain had stopped for the most part and we backtracked to France to catch the film and then Canada. Decided to continue on and took the boat ride at Mexico and then finished our loop of the lagoon. We ran out of time so skipped China’s film. Walked back to the International gateway and headed for the Beach Club, checked out the lobby and then headed for the Yacht Club to do the same before our dinner at Yachtsman. After dinner took the boat back to the Studios and used our Fastpass for Toy Story. The park was closing now so headed for the bus stops. Half the group took a bus back to Coronado Springs. I hiked back to EPCOT since the line for the boat was two or three long. Decided to stop off at the Boardwalk and see if I could see anything from the Home Depot awards that were going on, I could not, then stopped by the lobby to see the holiday decorations. Saw a boat coming in for EPCOT so took that over to the park. Roamed around World Showcase for a bit, stopping at Morocco and Japan. Caught the end of the Candlelight then found a spot for Illuminations. Decided to walk around the lagoon during the show and ended up back by the Christmas tree as the finale was going on, then headed for the busses and back to Coronado Springs to call it a night.
