Trip Report COMPLETE -- Long Time Lurker, First Time Reporter...March 2021 Trip

After reading many, many trip reports on here over the years, I have finally decided to come out of the shadows and make my debut as a bona fide trip reporter.

My name is Bryan. I am 36 and from outside of Philadelphia. I have had an AP for several years now but I came to Disney later in life. My first trip to Disney was not until 1999 when I was 14 as a present for graduating middle school. I believe we went in August and the biggest thing that stood out to me was how hot it was. Our family would not go to Disney again until 2003 as a high school graduation present. After that there were a few trips with friends during cooler months when my love for Disney really started to grow. It wasn't until 6-7 years ago that I went on a trip during the F&W Festival that I really became hooked. The following year I decided to purchase my first AP and have had one ever since.

Now that my brief introduction is done, here are the details for this trip:

When: March 4th-9th
Who: Me (Bryan), my mom (D), and my friend (A)
Where: Doubletree Suites by Disney Springs


This is a picture of the three of us from a few years ago. I am on the right and A is on the left. A is actually the person who is responsible for my Disney addiction. He was the one who got me into the joys of Disney as an adult and encouraged my AP purchase. After hearing stories from our trips, my mom decided to tag along and eventually purchased an AP of her own.

That brings me to the why of this trip (Not that there needs to be one...). My mom and my APs are scheduled to expire in the beginning of April after the COVID extension. My mom is on the fence about renewing her pass for various reasons but wanted to get one more trip in before our expiration date. Thankfully, we were lucky enough to not have any cancelled trips in the disaster that was 2020. My mom and I were in WDW the week before the world shut down and our planned October trip with A still happened.

Now that all of that is out of the way, I invite you to follow along...

Seriously, this!!! I love those so much! Welcome! Loving your report!
I have never had one, but I am not much of a drinker. The few drinks I tried on our last trip, I was not really a fan of them. The one I tried in 2016 was awesome. It was an oreo thing with godiva chocolate liquer....so good. But for the most part, if I have an option of a drink without the alcohol, I like it more than the alcohol version. I LOVE rootbeer, so I got some with alcohol when I was in the US visiting my brother....it was awful. It was fine for the first few sips and then I had trouble choking it down, so I gave it to my brother. He'll drink anything with booze in it. I don't think he ever met an adult beverage he didn't like. Grand Marnier is Orange favored, though, right? I may have to try it, because I do like orange....

(Yes, I know I'm boring.)

It is orange flavored and SO good! I am not a huge drinker either. If it's a drink with alcohol, it has to be sweet in order for me to like it lol. The Oreo/Godiva drink sounds right up my alley!

There is nothing boring about knowing what you like and sticking to it.

The Grand Marnier one is orange flavored and they also have a lemon flavored one but I have not tried that one.

The Oreo drink sounds amazing though!

Loving this TR! We're headed down for F&G in a few weeks so I'm happy to read about your reviews for the food items since some of the ones you tried are on our list!
Glad I could be of some help! I know I have relied on TRs in the past for trip recommendations so I figured it was time to pay it forward. There is more food coming up too!

DAY 4 -- MARCH 7TH

Today was our Magic Kingdom day. Going to the MK is always the most inconvenient for us because we stay off site and drive and need to deal with the TTC. We made our way to the TTC and we were surprised that there was relatively little traffic going in. We found a parking spot and moved quickly through temperature check and security. While they are not as fun as the monorail or the ferry, we have figured out that hopping a bus to the MK has been the quickest way to get there from the TTC. We joined the line and we were on a bus in less than 10 minutes. The transportation CMs had the loading process down to a science and there was a steady stream of busses coming through. I have to say that I do not miss the days of being crammed into a Disney bus like a sardine.

In a few minutes, we tapped into the park and were greeted by the construction scrims surrounding the train station. We made our way under the station and onto a lightly crowded Main Street USA. The majority of the crowd on Main Street seemed to be in line for Starbucks.

I thought that with some more time that the new castle colors would grow on me but coming back after being there in October I have to say that I am still not a fan.

IMG_0737.JPEG


I actually don't mind the pink that much. I just think that the gray and the blue/purple are too dark. We just missed out on seeing some of the 50th anniversary decorations that they have started to put up on the castle. Oh well, it will be something new to look forward to on the next trip.

We decided to make a left and journey into Adventureland. We took advantage of a short wait time and got in line for Jungle Cruise. I am cautiously optimistic about the proposed changes to this ride. I like the idea of a story line throughout and that the fun jokes and puns will not be going away. Our skipper was funny but his timing was off. He would pause too long before getting to the punchline and sometimes we would be past the scene by the time the joke landed including the back side of water...

Once we gave our mandatory standing ovation to our skipper, we headed over to the Enchanted Tiki Room because the next show was just about to start. I know this is a cheesy show but it is a classic and nice AC break when it gets too hot. The AC break was not needed today because it was not supposed to get out of the upper 60s but we still enjoyed it.

After yet another mandatory standing ovation, we continued through Adventureland towards Pirates. The wait time was already posted at 40 minutes so we decided to skip it for now and hit it later in the day and hope for a shorter wait. This would be a mistake but more on that later.

We made our way into Frontierland but decided to pass on a long wait time posted for both mountains. The line for the Haunted Mansion was physically shorter than we had experienced back in October so we jumped on the opportunity. As we were in front of the Disney Visa kiosk, a young boy, probably in his late tweens, came up to ask the CM where he could get one of the masks that the CMs wear because his little sister won't stop crying because she wants one and his mom needs to get her one. The CM explained that they were only for CMs and that they weren't available but there were plenty of mask options at the Emporium. The kid said he knew that but they needed that mask. She explained again that they were only for CMs and again the kid replied that he understood but they needed one. Eventually, the CM told him to go ask at Guest Relations just to get rid of him. People are just exhausting sometimes and we would mock this interaction for the rest of the trip.

After surviving overhearing that needy young guest and our trip through HM, we were in need of come fuel. We got into what seemed like the longest line of the day so far at Liberty Square Market that stretched back past the entrance to the Hall of Presidents. Mom and I split a Mickey pretzel, A got one as well, we all grabbed some caffeine in soft drink form, and I believe my mom also grabbed an extremely overpriced banana. If you ask me, any banana is overpriced because I find them to be vile.

gross dumb and dumber GIF


We found a spot along the rail of the tree in the seating area and enjoyed our snacks while being eyed up by the ever present Disney begging birds. We finished our mini meal and trekked into Fantasyland.

Much like the Grand Marnier slushie, if you don't make a pit stop at the Tangled restrooms, did you even go to MK???

After our mandatory break, we made our way past long waits at both Small World and Peter Pan. We went over to a old standby for short wait times and took a trip Under the Sea with Ariel and her friends. Yes, @Tuvalu I did make sure to wave at the happy couple at the end of the ride. Also, I am the only one who thinks Ariel and Eric have perhaps enjoyed a little too much seaweed at their nuptials? Their slow, half blinks always make me think they look like they are high.

The wait time for 7DMM was under an hour but we decided to pass. This is another ride that my mom has retired and the ride cars are not designed for fluffier individuals like A and myself. The seats are narrow which I can deal with but individual lap bars are the worst part. They squish my legs and other things together to the point of being very uncomfortable. If they would just put in a lap bar that goes all the way across like BTMM it would be such an improvement.

NEXT UP: A trip to Tomorrowland, lunch, and more MK shenanigans!

DAY 4 CONTINUED -- MARCH 7TH

We travelled through time and arrived in the future in Tomorrowland. Our first stop was Space Mountain for A and me. My mom has also retired this ride. I feel bad sometimes leaving her alone to go on rides but she says that she doesn't mind because it gives her a chance to sit and relax and people watch which is always entertaining. If I remember correctly, the wait time was posted at 40 minutes and the line snaked around the stage. About 20 minutes later we were blasting off.

IMG_0760.JPG


I think I nailed the ride photo, don't you! I don't know what it was about the ride this time but it felt more jerky than in the past and my neck hurt a little bit afterwards.

We returned to Earth and went to join the fight against Emperor Zurg. The line went all the way back into Monsters Inc but the wait again was much lower than the posted wait time. Our ride photos didn't show up. Well, someone's ride photo's showed up but they weren't ours. But, not to brag but I was a Galactic Hero!

IMG_0738.JPEG


A was also a Galactic Hero (like always) and was on his way to maxing out the score on the second gun on his solo mission. Sometimes, I am really on on this ride and other times I am terrible (I blame faulty equipment).

Next up, we joined the line (yes, I said line) for Carousel of Progress. I think we only had to wait for the theater to rotate once before we were seated. This is another attraction that some people find boring but it is a must do for us every trip, usually more than once. I even have a Carousel of Progress shirt.

Mine is green but that is the design on the shirt. It usually gets compliments from CMs when I wear it. On a side note, the shirt that I own that has gotten the most comments from CMs is not Disney related at all. I have a shirt from Parks and Rec with the logo for Andy's band Mouse Rat on it. Clearly, Disney CMs are big Parks and Rec fans like me.

It had been a long time since Mickey pretzels in Liberty Square so we decided to mobile order food from Tomorrowland Terrace with the Columbia Harbor House menu. We had an ADR in a couple hours so we didn't want to stuff ourselves. My mom and I split the chicken nuggets and fried shrimp combo. Mobile Order is mean and just had to pop up at the end and suggest a molten chocolate chip Minnie cookie so naturally we had to get that as well. A ordered the gluten free kids chicken. He doesn't have any dietary restrictions but he tried them once on a whim and he likes the gluten free version better than the regular and it ensures that it gets cooked fresh. For some reason, it took an extra long time for him to get his food this time and my mom and I were almost done by the time that he got his food. I don't really know what the problem was because it wasn't crowded in the least. Either way, it was nice to take a little break for some fried goodies and relax for a bit.

After eating, we decided to retrace our steps and go back around MK counter clockwise. Our first stop was Pooh. While in line for Pooh we noticed that A had an up close and personal encounter with Pooh. But not the silly old bear, but the variety that falls from the sky from our feathered friends. Needless to say he was not very happy and wasn't comforted by the fact that it is supposed to be good luck.

We concluded our adventures with Pooh in all its forms and stopped in Philharmagic for some musical fun. Like Muppets 3D, I feel like this show is in need of a refresh. There are so many other under represented movies that they could create scenes for for this show like Hercules and Mulan among others that could be created without closing the attraction. It would even be fun for them to find way to randomize it like Star Tours so you get a different combination of scenes each time while keeping the beginning and end the same with the orchestra.

NEXT: The wildest ride in the wilderness, our Pirates fiasco, and dinner (maybe?)

Your food photos are killing me! Had the Crab Rangoons a couple of years ago. Sooooo good and No, you did not go to Epcot if you didn’t get a Grand Mariner Orange Slushie! Love those things. ❤️😍 A must for me. Or a couple of musts. ;)
Yep--you've definitely sold me on the Orange Slushie. Getting one (or a couple) of those will be high up on my to-do list at Epcot (just two weeks away!)

DAY 4 CONTINUED -- MARCH 7TH

We were making our way towards BTMR but as we were passing by the Liberty Belle they were just getting ready to set sail so we decided to take a relaxing cruise around the Rivers of America. We got the chance to watch the CM members search around Tom Sawyer Island ushering everyone back to the rafts so they could close the island. On a side note, I am not a fan of Tom Sawyer Island. We went there a few years ago and we all tried to cross one of the barrel bridges at the same time and practically the whole thing sunk and we ended up with soaking wet feet for the rest of the day. From then on, it has made its way on to our "never again" list.

After a peaceful ride around the river, we were in the mood for something a little more high speed. We headed over to BTMR and A and I jumped in the queue. It should not surprise anyone that this has been retired by my mom. She decided to go over to the Relaxation Station outside of Pecos Bill's to wait. We basically kept moving all the way up until the ramp going down to the loading area. I was also glad to see that the squirrels that took up residence in the queue that we saw back in October were still chittering around the rafters. This is a picture of them back in October.

IMG_0646.JPG


We were on and off the ride in about 15-20 minutes when the wait time was posted at 35. The line for Splash Mountain was still really long and it was starting to get dark and cool down so we passed and went to reunite with my mom. We had just over an hour until our ADR at Crystal Palace and the wait time for Pirates was posted at 40 minutes. Even if we waited the full posted time we would done in plenty of time to make to CP with time to spare...right?

The line for Pirates crawled along at an excruciatingly slow pace. To add insult to injury, we had a group of four elderly people in line behind us that could not grasp the concept of the distance markers throughout the queue. At times they were so close that I could see them in my peripheral vision. Each of us tried the dirty looks at them and then down at the markers on the ground to see if they would get the point. Spoiler alert, they didn't. Eventually, my mom stopped and said something to them which finally got them to back off most of the time. After she said something, we were able to reinforce the point with just a dirty look. Somewhere in the midst of the personal bubble breaking and glaring, we also hit a cleaning cycle and the line grinded to a halt. The time kept ticking away and it was getting closer and closer to our ADR time. We eventually boarded our boat about 10 minutes before our reservation time.

IMG_0759.JPG


You can kinda see that I was checking my watch during the most pointless ride photo in WDW. We would be in decent shape time-wise as long as there wasn't a traffic jam at the unloading area.... Luckily, there was only a boat or two back up and it wasn't terrible getting off the ride like it typically can be.

We sent A up ahead because he is the quickest walker of the three of us and the ADR was in his name. The only reason we were worried was because our ADR was at 6:50pm and Crystal Palace closed at 7pm. We didn't want to show up after 7 and have them turn us away. Thankfully, we made it in time and in a few minutes we were seated and ready to dig into dinner.

Originally we had an ADR for Be Our Guest but we decided to change it for a couple reasons. One, we all agreed that lunch was the best meal at BOG and at least my mom and I weren't completely in love with the new Prix Fixe menu. Two, in case you didn't know already, BOG is pretty expensive. I suggested switching it to Crystal Palace because it was about $20+ less per person and the new menu now that it is not a character buffet sounded intriguing.

This meal was the only one that specifically made mention of masks at all. The CM that seated us let us know that now that we were seated that we could take our masks off and that we needed to put them back on if we got up from the table. This seemed to be in contrast to the newly announced mask policy that says you need to wear your mask unless eating or drinking.

We scanned the QR code for the menu while we waited for our server Miss Vickie to come around. The place was pretty empty since it was just past the closing time. It took Miss Vickie a little while to make it over to us because she was closing out checks and getting boxes for her departing tables. Once she arrived, she was delightful and we placed our orders.

If you are not aware, CP has reopened at a pseudo-family style meal. For $39 per person, we got salad and biscuits for the table, each person got their choice of entrée, and then we received a dessert platter for the table. Non-alcoholic beverages were also included and beer/wine were available for purchase. The salad, biscuits, and dessert were also all you care to eat. I completely forgot to take pictures of any part of this meal so I stole pictures from Disney Food Blog.

Miss Vickie returned with our drinks and two plates of salad and two baskets of biscuits for the table. Keep in mind that there only three of us total.

The salad was my least favorite part of the meal but it was still good. The salad is Tomato and Watermelon, Crisp Greens, Blue cheese, Candied Walnuts and Hot Pepper Jelly Vinaigrette. Not mentioned in the description were the onions that were on top.

Crystal-Palace-Reopening-27.jpg


I am not a fan of onions, raw tomato, or watermelon which is why the salad was my least favorite part of the meal. I picked out a pile of the greens along with a bunch of the blue cheese and candied walnuts to make enough of a salad that I would eat. The pepper jelly vinaigrette was not spicy at all but it was VERY salty. This actually paired well with the sweet walnuts, creamy blue cheese and slightly bitter greens. I am sure it went with the rest of the salad also but I can't speak to that.

Along with the salad we got mini biscuits for the table. There were regular buttermilk biscuits and cheddar bacon biscuits that came with honey butter, caramelized onion butter, and pepper jelly.

Crystal-Palace-Reopening-21.jpg


As you can guess, I skipped on the caramelized onion butter because, well, onions. The rest of the spreads were really tasty. I liked the pepper jelly on the cheddar bacon biscuits the best. It was a nice combo of sweet, spicy, and salty. The pepper jelly in non-vinaigrette form was not overly salted.

Miss Vickie kept checking in on us and offering us more salad and biscuits every time she came over to the table. She was offering us so much food that we started to joke that she was actually a witch in disguise and was trying to fatten us up to cook us.

For our entrees, A and I both went with the Prime Rib and my mom ordered the Fried Chicken.

Crystal-Palace-Reopening-12-768x789.jpg


They changed the sides that came with the Prime Rib since DFB did their review. It now comes with creamed spinach instead of collard greens and asiago potatoes au gratin instead of the roasted potatoes. The prime rib was delicious, fatty in the best kind of way, and a huge portion to boot. The potatoes were just ok and would have benefitted from some more cheese. The real standout of the meal for me though was the creamed spinach. It tasted just like a bowl of warm spinach dip and was super creamy. It took all of my willpower to not lick the dish clean.

My mom said that the fried chicken was very good but like the prime rib she said that the best part of the meal were the collard greens. They were well cooked and had just a touch of vinegar to cut through the bitterness of the greens. The chicken also came with a hot honey drizzle that I may or may not have dipped a biscuit in.

Miss Vickie came back and again offered us more salad and biscuits which we politely declined. We did not, however, decline the dessert platter.

Crystal-Palace-Reopening-Desserts.jpg


The desserts (clockwise from the top) were a honey cupcake with raspberry frosting and caramel inside, ricotta fritters coated in powdered sugar with chocolate sauce, a banana cream pie with chocolate crust and Tigger inspired whipped cream, and a hummingbird cake.

We split up the fritters between the three of us. They were tasty but nothing out of the ordinary. My mom and A split the banana cream pie because of my previously mentioned hatred of banana. They also split the hummingbird cake because I was worried it had coconut in it because coconut is right up there with banana for me. I ended up having the whole cupcake to myself and it was delicious. The combo of the raspberry and the caramel was unique and very yummy.

Needless to say, after this massive spread we were all stuffed. That didn't stop Miss Vickie from trying to tempt us with more desserts even offering to box up a whole dessert sampler to go.

We settled up the bill and Miss Vickie came over to thank us for being so patient with her being slow to get to us and thanked us for being such an easy going group. She then started to tell us that the group that was at our table before us were quite the opposite. She was telling us that they were complaining about having to wait for their table to be ready and that they caused such a scene that the manager went and got a stuffed Pooh Bear for the child in the group. We also learned from Miss Vickie that Disney keeps track of guest complaints and how they are resolved because apparently this same group complained about things the day before and were given free things then as well. Miss Vickie was going to spill more tea but got spooked because her manager was heading in our direction.

I have to say that this was the best dining experience we had during the whole trip. Miss Vickie was a great server. Even though we were the last people to leave the restaurant, we never felt rushed or unwanted and the quality of the food did not decline. I would highly recommend Crystal Palace and I really hope that it keeps this family style dining setup and doesn't go back to buffet. I would also highly recommend asking for Miss Vickie if she is working.

Great trip report so far!
And thanks for the review of the Crystal Palace--that's one of our final ADR's for our trip coming up next week and I've been seeing a lot of mixed reviews about their new 'family style' meal. But after hearing you mention that they offer unlimited biscuits and desserts, I'm sold!!

The parks are currently similar to how it’s been since reopening in July ~ no live shows, no fireworks, no parades or character meet and greets (just quick cavalcades and social distanced waving), little to no entertainment, many attractions, shops and restaurants still closed.

The only exception is that they have expanded the entertainment at Epcot to include live bands at night on Fri-Mon during the Flower and Garden Festival. I am not sure what the plans are for future festivals but I would think they would at the least keep those shows.

DAY 4 CONTINUED -- MARCH 7TH

After our filling meal at Crystal Palace, we avoided the temptation to join Miss Vickie for a nightcap in her house made of candy with a promised trip to her "sauna" and ventured back into Tomorrowland. The line for Buzz was practically a walk on so we hopped in and A and I tried to make it 2/2 as Galactic Heroes. I know that I did not achieve my goal but I don't remember if A did or not. I know I didn't try as hard because my mom got frustrated that I turned the vehicle every time she had her shot lined up so I didn't really steer much the second half of the ride.

For whatever reason A always wants to go on Tomorrowland Speedway, and my mom and I usually turn him down when he suggests it. I've ridden it before and it just doesn't really do it for me. But tonight, as we passed, the line again was virtually non-existent so my mom and I gladly parked ourselves on the wall and took a pit stop while A got his racing fix.

Animated GIF


After grabbing the checkered flag, we made our way over to the traffic jam (I promise, no more car puns) that is the Peter Pan/Small World corridor. For the first time in as long as I can remember, the line for Peter Pan actually went right inside the queue at the proper entrance and didn't wrap around the building. We took full advantage and boarded our pirate ships and took flight in under 10 minutes. I know it may be an unpopular opinion, but I just don't get the hype surrounding this ride and why it consistently has such long wait times. I really wouldn't wait much more than 20 minutes max for this ride and even that is pushing it. I also wouldn't mind skipping it entirely.

Our pixie dust wore off and we were back on solid ground and hopped across to set sail on IASW. We had another short wait and we ventured into the valley of the dolls. I noticed something during the boarding process that made me go hmmmm. Obviously they are not packing the boats full during this time and they are leaving space between parties. But, it made absolutely no sense to me why they were boarding parties on the same rows as the group that was getting off the ride. The boat before ours had two parties on it. One in the front row and one in the next to last row. We were assigned to the next to last row and had a solo rider in the front row. It would make more sense to me if they loaded the solo rider in row two and put us in the back of the boat so we weren't touching the same row that was just used and not cleaned.

Either way, we enjoyed our cruise and had the song firmly implanted in our brains. It was nearly time for the park to close and we were all running on empty so we decided to cut through the castle and head out for the night.

IMG_0739.JPEG


I think that the backside of the castle does not get nearly as much love as it deserves and it looks even better lit up at night.

As we were leaving we decided to change up our park ressies (sorry, @wdisney9000 I couldn't resist) for the last two days of the trip. Monday we had park passes for Epcot but switched it up to AK. We wanted to grab the AP magnets and try out the AP exclusive drinks that are only offered on weekdays. AK is also my mom's favorite park and she wanted to spend some more time there. We also tried to change our park passes for Tuesday. We had passes for MK but we felt that we accomplished everything that we wanted to accomplish by being there all day on Sunday. We wanted to hit up HS again and try to ride RotR again among other things. But when we looked at the availability, there was nothing available for resort guests at HS or MK. There was availability for APs but we weren't sure if it would try to classify us as resort guests first instead of APs and we did not want to risk losing our MK park pass in the process and get stuck with Epcot and not being able to get into a park until 11am on our last day so we decided to leave Tuesday as is and go to MK and miss out on HS.

Once we figured out our new itinerary for the rest of the trip we continued down Main Street USA and were wished a fond farewell by the main mouse himself and some of his closest friends.

IMG_0740.JPEG


We missed the first monorail but we were at the front of the line for the second one and we were quickly on our way back to the TTC and off to bed.

NEXT: Lions, Tigers, and Birds, oh my!
