Walt Disney World Day 4 Report
Friday, December 9, 2016
Started off this very cold and dreary morning heading for the Pop Century bus stop about 7:45am. Had to wait about 5 minutes for a Magic Kingdom bus and we were off in no time. There was a road closure near the Magic Kingdom and traffic was a mess. Eventually we made it to the Magic Kingdom then waited for a Resort Monorail and took a long trip around to the Polynesian. Made it with 1 minute to spare before our 8:55am breakfast reservation at Kona Cafe. After breakfast walked around the Polynesian then hopped the Monorail to the Grand Floridian and walked around there then did the same at the Contemporary. Boarded a bus to Disney Springs there. Spent some time in the shops at the Town Center then the Marketplace before visiting the Christmas Tree Trail. Decided to go to the Magic Kingdom so walked over to Saratoga Springs to catch a bus, had to wait half an hour for it. Got to the Magic Kingdom just as the parade was making its way around Town Square so found a spot and watched it. After the parade caught the Dapper Dans then went to catch a boat to Fort Wilderness. One pulled in after several minutes but it had mechanical problems so we waited for the next while while several CMs worked on that one. We were in line for the boat before 4pm and made it to our 5pm dinner with not that much time to spare. Ate dinner at Trails End then hopped a bus to the front of the campground and then transferred to one bound for the Hollywood Studios. Arrived at the park entrance as the 10 min announcement for Jingle Bam was playing. Walked around looking for a spot and settled for Hollywood Blvd near Sunset. After the show hiked from there over to Epcot to use a Frozen FastPass+. After Frozen decided to go on Soarin. A posted 40 min wait turned out to be 35. Hung around the Fountain of Nations until 9:20ish then went to find a spot for Illuminations. After the show joined the masses heading for the exit. Was lucky and walked onto a waiting Pop Century bus, one of the last guests and it pulled away almost right away. Was back in my room at Pop Century by 10:15pm to call it a night.
