Bon Voyage breakfast was one of my favourites! The girls loved meeting Flynn and prince Eric. Glad you got AC again.
I was so happy that Flynn was as spectacular as he was! Tina and Allie loved every second of it. Allie just reminded me that Flynn told her she looked good in stripes! So fun. We were sooooo thankful to have AC again.
Thanks for following!

Day 7 Continued

We joined the Navi River queue.





I liked the lights.



And the boats.



The journey was beautiful and relaxing.









The Shaman was amazing.



Up Next: Finishing up Navi River

Day 7 continued









My thoughts on Navi River...
Did I enjoy it? Yes. Would I wait more than 30 minutes to ride it in the future? No. It was relaxing and the a/c was lovely on a hot July afternoon in Florida, but I don't feel like it is a must do on every visit.

We took another peek around the gift shop. I loved that the racks for the t-shirts looked like branches. I am always amazed by the theming.



Navi River not a must do. Night Blossoms on the other hand, will be a must do every time.



Adam enjoyed a head massage while we waited for our drinks :hilarious:!



People were getting hungry so we gave Satu'li Canteen a try. Adam had the kids Cheese Quesadilla.



It came with bag (purse) grapes :hilarious:!



Allie and I took a selfie to send to my best friend back home.



Up Next: Finishing up at Satu'li Canteen

Day 7 Continued

Tina got the chicken bowl with rice and the creamy herb sauce. She shared a few bites with me. I wasn't hungry enough for a whole meal, so I was glad she was willing to share because I'd really wanted to eat here.



While people finished eating I took a few pics of the inside of Satu'li Canteen.





The outside seating area.



Even the manhole covers are perfectly themed.



Apparently someone else got a kids meals because we ended up with 2 bags of purse grapes :happy:!



One of my favorite spots in AK. Tamu Tamu. Home of the spiked Dole Whip :hungry:.



We watched the acrobats





And did a little music making er....shopping.



Up Next: More AK

More shopping. I love the unique items you find at AK.



We purchased a picture frame, an ornament for Tina and this ornament for our tree. Allie had pointed the same ornament out to me the day before, but I wanted to wait to be sure that was the one I really wanted. When Adam brought it over to me today I knew we needed to buy it. I'm so happy that we did. It looked great on our tree.



Time for some photo ops.



This is one of my favorite Photo Pass spots. We take a picture here every year.



EE is so photogenic.



I laugh every time I look at this picture. Here's the story. Adam's nickname is Tree (because he's tall and a little kid once told him he was tall like a tree!). First Adam hugged the tree and we all thought it was funny because Tree was being a "tree hugger". Then Allie joined in to hug Tree the "tree hugger" :hilarious:!



Random pics on our way to EE.









Up Next: EE and more AK

In the queue for EE. Neither sign has one of our names on it, but I thought they were fun.







After our ride we wandered around. Some of us had ice cream.













We rode Kali River Rapids. Paul hates to get wet, so we left all of our stuff with him while we rode. I know he took some pictures, but I guess he never sent them to me. I will try to add them later. Anywho, we all got wet but not drenched. It's fun, but it feels like it ends rather abruptly and should be a bit longer.

We were all slowing down and had been planning to leave because we had an early morning planned for the next day. The lights were coming on around the park and people were already being seated for ROL. We realized that it was getting dark and if we hung out just a bit longer we could experience Pandora at night.



I was hungry so I stopped for my first ever :jawdrop: Mickey pretzel! I had to have the plastic cheese to go with it. I loved it! Popcorn and soft pretzels were my go to semi-healthy snack at many of Allie's volleyball matches over the years.



I enjoyed my snack as we made our way to Pandora.

Up Next: Pandora at night

We walked over to Pandora and we were so glad that we did. I was amazed at all the colors. Prepare for a Pandora after dark overload!















And with that we headed back to the resort. When we got back Tina got some great shots of the Electrical Water Pageant.







We headed to bed because we had to be up bright and early to get our first look at Toy Story Land!

Up Next: EMH at HS

Day 8 Hollywood Studios

Because TSL had only been open a week or so EMH started at 7am. We were up at 0 dark thirty. Mark wasn't feeling well so he decided to stay at the resort. Everyone else headed for HS. We parked and headed to the front of the park at 7:11.



We made it through security fairly quickly and stopped for a picture.



I'm not sure what Paul did to make TInk mad, but she kicked him in the head :hilarious:!



I can't remember why we headed toward ToT, but I think it was to get some empty park photos.



The PP photographer asked if we were happy to be there. We said yes, so he told us we should jump for joy! Here are our attempts.





Hello Tower of Terror.



We'll be back for our limo ride in just a bit!







Up Next: Our first look at Toy Story Land

I loved how Woody welcomes you.





Our first look at Slinky Dog Dash



Loved the theming. You really feel like you are in Andy's backyard. We had a FP for Slinky later so we wanted to ride TSM and Alien Spinning Saucers during EMH. In the queue for for TSM.



Tina ALWAYS bought Boardwalk when our family played Monopoly.





Mr. Potato Head!



Tina and I loved our Old Maid game.



Biddie numero Uno



Dos



Where's tres you ask? We had to wait awhile.

Up next: More TSM

Day 8

Next up was Alien Swirling Saucers. The queue was very cute and very hot with no a/c.









Water fountain in the queue













The saucers were surprisingly fun. Would I spend an hour in line to ride? No, but it was a lot more fun than I expected it to be.

Up next: Woody's Lunchbox

Day 8 Continued

Our tummies were grumbly so we made a quick potty stop and headed to Woody's Lunchbox for breakfast.



The big footprints are a fun touch.



Loved the seating but wished there was more of it AND that it was in air conditioned comfort!





This was the turkey breakfast sandwich. Most of us ordered it. It was good and very filling.





I had the raspberry lunchbox tart. I really enjoyed it. It would have been outstanding had it been heated! Paul had the chocolate lunchbox tart, but I don't have a picture.



Bellies full, we took a few more pictures and headed out of TSL for now. We'd be back later to ride Slinky.








Up Next: ToT

We had a steak filled trip last year and out of the 4 or 5 we tried around WDW this was the winner for 2/3 of us (beating out steak from the Yachtsman)
Wow, great recommendation! The one bite I took was delicious. Definitely on my list for future trips.

Lovin your pink Nike's! I'm a sucker for anything pink!!

That Bon Voyage breakfast...oh my goodness! Pastries...:inlove:....steak:inlove:....mimosas:inlove::inlove::inlove:. Looks like a great character breakfast! Although Ariel sure looks quite young! Maybe because I'm older she looks like she couldn't be more than 15 or 16, but that could just be me:joyfull:.

Have been really enjoying your TR. It's so great that your families could do this trip together - what great memories!

Thanks on the pink Nikes. I resisted buying them because they looked slightly rose gold and for some reason I was resisting the whole rose gold trend. The shoes were so comfortable that I bought them and then the rose gold ears and a rose gold mug....so much for resisting the rose gold trend :hilarious:!

Loved the Bon Voyage breakfast. I went back and looked at the picture and you're right, Ariel does look very young!

Glad to have you following. We had a lot of fun together. Of course we had a few grouchy moments here and there but overall the trip was awesome.
