BTMRR does have a ride picture ... at DLP ;). After we rode it on this trip we kept waiting for our picture to show up ... and it wasn’t ☹. But then I found out that there isn’t one at WDW:joyfull:

You and me both! I teach the middle school age at our dance studio and it’s all they do! One told me the other night that she needed to teach me a tik tok dance and my reply was “I think if you’re over 30, you’re just too old for that” 😂
Haha it's so funny you say that because all the kids in the hip hop class I taught last year kept begging me to put a dab and all these "Fortnite" dances in our recital dance and I was like "no way!"

I must be really really old, because I have no idea what that even is!
If you're familiar with Vine it's like the new version of it but IMO way more cringy and another reason for a bunch of 15 year olds to get famous for having absolutely no talents.

It's funny you say that because I do remember that when we went to DLP! WDW needs to get with the program :eek:

Wednesday continued...

We were both starving so I placed a mobile order at Columbia Harbor House. Once again the app was giving me trouble but after a few times refreshing I got it to go through.

I ordered myself the lighthouse sandwich and a peach cobbler, because why not, I’m on vacation! Victoria got the shrimp and chicken combo but said it was just ok.
The peach cobbler was surprisingly super yummy.

After a relaxing lunch we had our 2nd FP for Splash coming up so we headed back towards Frontierland. Chip and Dale were out wearing their cowboy outfits so Victoria reluctantly got in line with me.

We had a very weird interaction. Something happened and Dale’s handler had to leave with him for a few minutes leaving us alone with Chip who also seemed very confused.
I also hate how they posed us for this picture. I feel like I look like I'm standing so awkwardly!

After we said goodbye to my favorite two chipmunks it was time for Splash! We got the front row so we got very nervous. We were just past the ending scene with Brer Rabbit when the ride broke down.

And when I say broke down, I mean down down. We were stuck on the ride for over 40 minutes and ended up having to get evacuated. It was definitely a stressful experience and a man on the boat in front of us was having a panic attack but they couldn’t let them off yet.

We were soooo close to getting off! Unfortunately this is where we sat for 40 minutes while everyone in line just stared at us like we were circus freaks before they got evacuated as well.

Not only that, but I got absolutely soaked! My hair was not looking pretty.

They gave us a Multiple Experiences FP for our troubles and after wasting almost an hour we were on our way.

Space ended up having a 170-minute wait so we decided to go use our Multiple Experience on that. It ended up being a great idea!

After Space it was time for the PeopleMover, one of my personal favorites. And go figure, the ride broke down with us on it again. We were only stuck for about 5 minutes though.

Some obligatory TRON construction pics. I can't wait for this to be done!

Our next stop was Buzz and I did the best I’d ever done! It was no Galactic Hero but I was still very proud of myself.
IMG_7755.JPG
Mine is obviously the score on the right. Victoria is still very bad!

It was then the moment I was waiting for all trip. It was time to meet Stitch! My best friend from back home had gotten me a custom pair of Stitch ears for the holidays and I couldn’t wait to show him. Stitch is my absolute favorite.

I had a really great interaction! And he really loved my ears.

They really need to fix the lighting in some of these M&G locations. They are just not conducive to getting good pictures!

Coming up...someone's getting cranky :banghead:

Oh goody, just what we need! I guess I’ve never been much into social media, even when everyone was friends with Tom on MySpace(or when we all posted our thoughts on Xanga if you go a little further back), I just wasn’t super into it. I have accounts with most major social media platforms, but I don’t often post. Guess I’m just an old soul.

Lol! Trust me, you're not alone!

Wednesday continued...

On our way over to Adventureland I finally got a picture of the back of the castle. Am I the only one who prefers the back to the front? Idk if that makes me weird.
IMG_7771.JPGIMG_7772.JPG
Victoria and I had both been craving dole whips so I placed a mobile order but when we got there the pickup line was past the Jungle Cruise so we decided to wait a bit. Victoria was starting to get very tired and cranky at this point and I was not having it so I sent her off to go get a snack while I went for a walk by myself.

Our 3rd FP for Jungle Cruise was at 4:40 and while we waited in line I snagged a 4th FP for Magic Carpets at 5:15. I was getting very good at using the app!
Our skipper was funny but nobody on our boat was really playing along. I think I was the only one laughing. I felt bad!
IMG_7774.JPGIMG_7777.JPG
After our cruise we decided to pick up our Dole Whips and enjoy them on a bench. I forgot how much I loved them! Plus they do no harm to my belly because they’re dairy free!
IMG_7780.JPG
After we enjoyed our treats it was time for our Magic Carpets FP so I also made a 5th FP for Pooh at 6:15 while in line.
IMG_7784.JPGIMG_7785.JPG
I was very glad the spitting camels were turned off during our ride.

Next stop was another ride with Pooh and Friends. On our way over back towards Fantasyland, the Move It Shake It parade was going on. We watched for a bit but Victoria was getting impatient.
IMG_7787.JPG
Back off to Pooh! And what did I do in line of course? Make a 6th FP for Little Mermaid at 6:45.

As we were walking through the gift shop after Pooh, my eyes fell upon this little Eeyore stuffed animal and I knew I had to have him. Victoria insisted I didn’t need him but it was an absolute necessity.
IMG_7791.JPG
I absolutely love him. He sits on my bed at school with me every day!

I tried to make a mobile order from Pinocchio Village Haus for dinner but the app wouldn’t work so we just decided to order there. I ordered the chicken parm pasta but it was very expensive. And then they accidentally gave my food to someone else and I sat there waiting for 20 minutes until they realize the mistake.

Once I brought it up to them nobody was willing to help and eventually after waiting 25 minutes I got my food. I was given no apology or anything. I was in a very bad mood.

The food was absolutely disgusting. Like close to inedible. But I was hungry so I just dealt with it and ate.

Wednesday continued...

After my awful meal, our next stop was our return for Voyage of the Little Mermaid. We decided since it was around 7:30 we would go get a spot for HEA since they were back to their normal time at 8.

Once we found the perfect spot, we looked over and saw that a kid had lost their Mickey balloon. The entirety of the MK waiting for the fireworks let out a collective “aww” in unison. It was absolutely hilarious.
IMG_7793.JPG
The fireworks were absolutely incredible. It was both of our first times seeing them as we’d missed them on my last trip. It was just so annoying though because some guy in front of me was livestreaming them on his phone the entire time and blocking my vision.
IMG_7795.JPGIMG_7797.JPGIMG_7801.JPG
After the fireworks we decided to take another relaxing ride on the Peoplemover. At some point earlier I must’ve grabbed a return time for Space because that was our next stop.
IMG_7807.JPG
I sat in the back seat and it was extremely bumpy. It really hurt my back.

After our ride on Space we both decided we were absolutely exhausted so we left the park around 9:50.

Once again, another dilemma with the Coronado Springs buses. It took 25 minutes for one bus to come for the resort with the longest line. There were lots of screaming people…this seemed to just be the trend of the trip.

We got back home around 10:35 and Victoria ran down to the QS restaurant to get something to eat while I took a shower and packed. Tomorrow was our last day in the parks and then we were going home!

Day Five Summary:
Total Miles Walked: 10.5 miles
Bad: The exhaustion hit us
Good: Watching Happily Ever After!
Surprised by: how good I got at using the MDE app
Today we tried: a more “relaxing” day at the parks
The result…a lot more laid back and enjoyable
In one word today was…Fun!

Coming up...One last go :arghh:
