Since I had no idea what to expect yesterday morning, I woke up early and made the family get up, so we could have an early start to the park. We arrived an hour before the park even opened.
This made my family casts many glances of stink eye on me, but we were early in the queue to be admitted. After the park opened, that's when people started stampeding in all directions, but mostly in ours. I wanted to get four Fast Passes for "Soarin", which is one of the most popular rides right now.
I secured those, then we leisurely made our way to other less crowded attractions. It was so great. Sissy was unsure of riding anything, but she rode a few very tame rides (we knew better than to get her on anything too terrifying).
Mandy was kind enough to ask what we ate.
Well, last night, we had dinner at Wolfgang Puck's Cafe and the Evil Twin and I really liked it. Buddy was divided and Sissy only picked around, as usual.
We're doing the Disney Dining Plan, and I made sure to make reservations with only those restaurants who are participating. This means we get one snack, one counter service (fast food-ish), and one table service meal per night of our stay.
At Epdot, I had chosen Sunshine Seasons for a counter service lunch. We were not disappointed. We had plenty of food and it was fresh and tasty.
For dinner, I made a reservation for Garden Grill in the Land section of Epcot months ago (like in February).
It was quite possibly THE best meal I have ever had. The Evil Twin agrees.
The 2nd best thing about the Dining Plan is that I don't have to worry about each meal and its' price. The VERY best thing is that I don't have to feel guilty about the expensive food I try very hard to eat, but leave a bit on my plate. I'm still getting my money's worth.
Sorry, no pics yet. I haven't cleared them off the card.
Today, Disney Hollywood Studios.
