Trip Report Orlando Calling...yes, I was "there" too...Part 2!!

the clash GIF


Orlando calling to the faraway towns..
Now a vacation is declared and we come down..
Orlando calling and I don't want to shout...
But while we were driving, I saw you nodding out
Orlando calling, and the Disney World..
Come out of the house, you 4 boys and 1 girl..
Orlando calling to our 2 bedroom resort...
Now that I'm home, the trip I report...

I never felt so much alike, alike, alike, alike

After Buzz, we headed over to meet the family for dinner and then get the kids ready for the party..

They decided on Pecos Bill's and we headed over after some BR breaks and shop wandering...

LET'S GET SOME CANDY!

My two best friends and Minecraft something or other...LOL

We hit Haunted Mansion, Peter Pan and Liam and I hit Space Mountain again and then 7DMT during the fireworks as Heather and the boys headed up front for the parade...

Time to head(less horseman) up to the front for the last parade of the night...

The fam was stationed in a great spot to see everything and no trees in front of the castle...

The new(old) parade was excellent, just as I remembered it. The star of the show wasn't the headless horseman, but the nice young cast member that followed him with the poop-scooper and bin...

She got a resounding cheer as she made her way down Main Street....!!!

Time to head out as it was around midnight but first a balloon...

The exodus out of the MK..... Liam had fun!!

Compared to June, the walk to the Ferry boats were very easy and it seemed that resort transport was the most crowded as we walked on the boat, semi-Shirley style and before long, back to the TTC and car...

Wonderful time had by all and great to be back to the Halloween party.

Wednesday didn't have much in store, as the temperature dropped to the 60s from a cold front. We had and ADR for Boma later in the evening...

I have to round up some pictures from the Mrs, and post some


TTFN!!!!

Next morning, we consolidated the candy haul from what we wanted to eat, what we ate and what we didn't want(melted ones)...

We had our ADR at Boma this evening and we are all excited as people rate this as one of the better dinners...We had stayed at Kidani Village for years with my Dad's DVC and never been there...

In 2 words, "it was excellent"... @wdisney9000

Getting ready to eat! My nephew, X... @Darstarr

Um..not sure what's with Liam's tongue...Maybe it was hungry too..


After stuffing ourselves, kids wanted to check out the shop...

We headed outside after to see the animals and check out the activities before heading home..

"Men down"...

Good thing they fell sleep early because we would have a huge day on Thursday....

First let me drop this picture to show how cold it was...I think I have only seen this in late January before...

For our visit, we got Genie+ again to see how we would fare at Epcot with it and grabbed Remy's RA and also scored an early boarding group for Guardians. 11:30 estimate was quickly updated when we rolled through the parking toll booth...

8:30 was opening time and we got the switch in times around 845 on our way in to the lot...we would have plenty of time to get over there however, it kind of screwed up the morning plans...Anyhoo...

Heather and Liam went in first as I wasn't feeling well that morning, allergies from the temperature change, so we got a rider swap and they headed in!

The littles and I went around FW-East and snapped some pictures...

Heather sent me some pics of them getting ready to ride Guardians..

1668539254884.png


about forever later, they came out of the door and Liam proclaimed, "that is my new favorite ride ever"...and Heather agreed but she also said "I don't think you'll be able to ride it"... I am one of those who get motion sick easily with spinning and reverse travel...

Since we didn't have to use the swap right away, we headed over to ride Nemo..

It was time to head to France for our LL for Remy...

1668539588325.png


However, once we got over there...we saw people streaming out of the area and someone mentioned that it was down..

Soon enough, I got the notice from MDE and grabbed the free LL for Soarin...

The kids were begging us to ride the Skyliner at this point and since we were right there but we couldn't get sleeping Jace on with the stroller so Heather hung out and the boys and I rode to the Riviera and back...

I had to figure out how to open the air vents on this trip and it was cool air but a bit humid and stuffy in the gondola..

Was easy to figure, so I wasn't going to bake..

Once we got back, it was time for lunch so we headed towards Italy and Germany to grab some food...

Liam wanted a slushy, I said try this instead:

Stopped at Italy for Heather and the gnocchi at the Food & Wine booth....

1668540155574.png


I headed over to Germany to get bratwurst, to which I thought she snapped a picture of but it was for Snapchat... whateva..

we couldn't get sleeping Jace on with the stroller
I would think most strollers fit unfolded, don’t they? At least when it’s not busy and you’ve got your own gondola? I know I had no problem taking my 2yo in her stroller and my 5yo walking, but it *was* a small umbrella stroller.

After lunch, I checked to see if Remy's was up and it was so we headed over to France..

Did you know that French fries were not made in France??? They were made in Greece....

What a great ride!! We loved it! I liked the details of the show parts as you were under the oven, the fridge and some others...Very well done.

After, we headed up towards Spaceship Earth and to see Figment!!
