Walt Disney World Day 8 Report
Tuesday, May 17, 2011
Started off this morning sleeping in a bit to around 7:30 then finished packing the suitcases and carryons and we were out of the room by 8:30. Checked in the suitcases with the Magical Express folks and then went to breakfast at Everything Pop. After breakfast one last trip back to the room to get the carryons and checked those in with luggage services and we headed out to the parks. First stop of the day was the Studios. Walked over to Star Tours to see if they were testing, a bunch of people and CMs in the area but not open so circled through the Streets of America to get to Pixar Place and Toy Story. It had a posted 40 min wait but in reality was only about 15 minutes. Had a decent game and then doubled back through the Streets of America and over to Star Tours. More people and activity but nothing else. Hung around for about half an hour before deciding to call it quits and head for the busses. Hopped on a bus to the TTC and then took the ferry boat across to the Magic Kingdom. Grabbed Fastpasses for Mickey and the Princesses and then hopped on the Steam Train for a round trip. Once back on Main Street wandered down the street and out to Liberty Square. Ate lunch at Harbor House and then walked through Fantasyland and the Castle on our way to Tomorrowland. Visited the Carousel of Progress and then went for a spin on the People Mover before heading down Main Street to visit Mickey. Took our pictures then some wanted Dole Whips so walked with them to Adventureland and I continued out to Pirates to get some last pictures. Rejoined everyone on Main Street and we headed for the exit. Had some extra time so took the Express Monorail to the TTC and transferred to the EPCOT line. At EPCOT decided to head for the bus and back to Pop Century since we had about 75 minutes till our Magical Express pick up time. Got back to the resort, got our carryons out of storage and had some time still so I made one last walk of the grounds and tried to get some Art of Animation Resort construction pictures. Headed back to the lobby a few minutes before 4pm and we headed for the Magical Express stop and waited for our bus. At MCO grabbed some dinner and then headed for the gate and home.
