Our adventure continues! A bit behind with TR's now (today is day 12), must be enjoying myself too much :)
Day 9 Animal Kingdom
We decided that since we weren't in a hurry to get to AK we'd try the lynx bus again. Managed to co-ordinate the 8 & 50 so we were at the TTC within an hour and another 15 mins or so by bus to AK so got there around 12.
We got fastpasses for Expedition Everest and then queued up as it was only 35 mins. Think this is my favourite Disney rollercoaster! Really enjoyed it and glad we had the FP's for later. We rode Dinosaur too and enjoyed the safari. Got some great photos. We saw the parade, poor DH got bear hugged literally by Baloo lol.
It was a pretty hot day again, no rain but we were determined to stick it out as planned for Wishes later.
We got some early dinner from the Yak and Yeti cafe. DH's honey chicken looked nicer then my beef lo mein, beef was a bit grisly but nice overall.
Got the bus to the TTC, wanted to try the monorail but it wasn't running so ferry it was again. MK felt almost as crowded as last week but we did a few things we missed like Pirates of the Caribbean and jungle cruise as wait times were about 20 mins. I also spent a few too many $$ in the emporium! If I'd known how much better Mouse Gear at Epcot would be yesterday I'd have waited.
Pitched up outside the emporium for the electrical parade- the tune was stuck in my head for ages afterwards! Enjoyed the projection show on the castle then we headed for the ferry whilst the fireworks started. Think alot of people had the same idea and by the time we set sail the fireworks were over. But saw enough to tick it off the 'to do' list.
Think Magic Kingdom is my least favourite park sadly, just too crowded for me and packed in with things to to. I'm sure i'd feel differently in a quieter season.
Day 10 Aquatica
Had always planned aquatica for the day after our late Disney night. We were really tired (and no matter how hard I try my brain wakes me up in time for rope drop!) but perked up when we got there. Did a few rides and zoomed round roa rapids. It had been quite cloudy all day and I spotted some dark clouds approaching so we headed home at 3. The storm hit us at 5 and was pretty intense. We went over to The Pub when it eased off. We'd been before and enjoyed it. The service wasn't so good this time, waitress took DH's plate when i was still eating then came back with the check when she took my plate. She must have been psychic that we didn't want dessert!
Went to the Zebra bar at the hotel so DH could try Rosen Inns own brewed beer, Alligator Drool which he liked. Then early night again for Epcot in the morning.
