I still enjoy this show a lot. Maybe because Hope wasn't never a Frozen Fanatic, so the songs are still fun to listen to and sing along. Plus Ross got to take another nap. Although I have to admit, the show is more fun with your Ben in it @blgauger.
Finally, we walked over to Aliens Swirling Saucers. I was actually able to make a fast pass as we were waiting for Slinky Dog! It’s not the greatest rides, but it’s so much fun. For some reason, it makes me laugh. The music is great too!
We walked over to 50’s Prime Time, which was Julia's pick, and gave our name. In a few minutes we were ordering our food!
I couldn’t tell if our waitress was grumpy or playing the part. It was a little strange and a bit awkward. She was nice enough, for example, we told her we were on the dining plan, but we were going to pay for a kid’s meal for Hope. We were missing a couple of kid’s credits since we had a couple of extra meals before Ross arrived. She asked what she wanted and instead of charging us for a kids meal, she just listed her food as extra sides for us. She said that adults are allowed to ask for an extra side and not be charged for it. (This is also what the waitress at Sanaa did.) She also brought her an apple juice and did not add it to our bill. So in that way, she was great she just did it all in a oddly, grumpy way.
Then there was a waitress in the next section over who was over the top in character. She made this one man stand in the corner because he didn’t finish his vegetables and said he couldn’t have dessert! Lol It was hysterical! She was so high energy and preformed for all her tables. We couldn’t help but watch and laugh at the show, but our waitress didn’t seem too amused. She was complaining to us that she was crazy. Again, I didn’t know if this was her “character” or if she was just a little grumpy. Either way, the food was delish and we added to her tip to thank her for Hope’s non–dinner, dinner.
The show didn’t last too long and soon we were dashing away.
And a final ride through the shooting gallery.
Now when I planned two days in HS, I made everyone promise we would watch Fantasmic one night and the Star Wars fireworks the other. Since we watched Fantasmic a few nights before, I was hoping my family would keep their promise. However both girls wanted to see Fantasmic again. I was sad, but I’d rather the girls be happy. So off we went. We were a little early so we went on one last drop.
Soon we were settled into our seats and waited for the show to start. But no sooner did we settle in, the first clap of thunder echoed through the sky! I knew what this meant… The delayed announcements started. We all huddled and debated what to do. Hope did NOT want to leave, while it did not rain, but the thunder continued. One of the CM’s told us it didn’t look good, so we waited until almost 8:45PM and then we exited with many others. We were about to exit the park, when we realized the Star Wars fireworks did not go off yet. We walked over an asked if they were also going to be delayed, but the CM said no – they were going to start ASAP. Sure enough about 8:55, they began. We had a great view and I really enjoyed them!
As we were exiting, we found out Fantasmic was indeed cancelled for the night. So I’m really glad we made the decision to leave. We began the LONG trek back to the busses and back to POP.
We made sure to wake up Hope so she could say goodnight to the bus. By 10:30, the girls were snoring away.
Ross and I walked to the front desk to pay off our charges with our gift cards. After we took care of our bill, Ross wanted to look in the gift shop so he could investigate the Crocs section. Sure enough, he found them. He studied them. I could see his mind at work. I asked him what he planned to do and he said he wasn’t sure. I asked if he was having second thoughts and he said he just needed to think about it some more. He said, "The time didn’t feel right."
During dinner, Ross asked about the Lyft charges. I admit I tried to conceal my new found transportation, but I forgot that he would see the charges if he checked our credit card statement. He was not too happy. My frugal hubby did not see the point in paying for transport that we got free. It didn’t help that when I downloaded the APP, I forgot to do it through Jet Blue or I would have receive points – something Ross would have seen value in. I argued my “time is money” case, but in the end, we agreed to disagree on the matter. Little did he know I had a couple of more Lyft rides planned for the duration of our stay.
Oh, I've been meaning to tell you... Did you know Uber has gift cards you can use to pay? You should buy those for when you go without Ross, that way he can't give you a hard time because he'll never see the charges!
