I don't have many pictures of this day so I'm not quite sure of all that we did.
I know we had FP's for the Mine Train based on my pictures.

Must have watched FoF again.

We had a reservation at Liberty Tree Tavern. I recall having to wait quite awhile.

While we were waiting a little--and when I say little I mean it--parade came through. The Cubs had just won the World Series and a few of their players were there. The parade consisted of Mickey & Minnie then two of the players. That was it. I actually felt bad that there wasn't a bit more for them. It was pretty pathetic.

That evening we headed to The River Roost to see YeHaa Bob!! Sorry about the super poor quality of these pictures.

We must have got there early b/c we have a table right up front.

We're missing one.....

...that would be b/c B decided to stay at MK. She had no desire to see Bob:jawdrop:

FEA had opened earlier in the year & we were unsuccessful in getting FP's for it. We tried getting a pre-park opening breakfast reservation so we could hopefully ride it with a minimal wait. We weren't successful until approximately 5 days before the trip-thank you touring plans!! We got a reservation at Akershus. E, J & J didn't want in on the reservation b/c it would be too early for little J. That left the other 5 of us. We didn't trust the bus service so we took a cab to Epcot instead.

Breakfast was ok but nothing special. I prefer the dinner there but the truth of the matter was we really weren't going there for the food.

We got done with breakfast shortly before the park opened & we immediately went to FEA & pretty much walked on:)--mission accomplished!!

Ok--I know I look completely ridiculous. Since it had been quite some time since having been on Malestrom I couldn't remember how big the drop was so I was holding on for dear life not knowing what to expect. Remember--I'm afraid of heights....

We had FP's for Test Track. I believe this was A's first time on it & she loved it.
wdw2016311593783758_7852133598.jpg

After that ride J, B & myself rode single rider. While we were waiting in line we talked to two women. They were super nice but then all of a sudden the one woman started breaking out into stretches & calisthenics. It was quite odd. We all kind of gave each other looks & after our ride we all had a good laugh about it.
J & I ended up in the same car.

We headed back to WS after this & I apparently did not take a single picture. I remember it being super crowded & my patience was wearing at that point. We didn't try anything at the Food & Wine booths b/c the lines were ridiculous.

We did get a few PP pictures though.

We had a reservation at Garden Grill for dinner.

I wonder what J was thinking? His facial expression is interesting.

I don't know what it is but I just love this picture!!

Overall I really enjoyed the food there. It was nice to sit down & get away from the crowds for a bit.

After dinner we decided to head out but we stopped for a few PP pictures.

I don't know what it was about this trip but for some reason the crowds were really getting to me. I almost didn't want to go to any more parks.

I always like listening to these guys for a bit.

It looks like we had a FP for KS first.

We had a breakfast reservation at Tusker House!!

Ironically, I think I have been seated at this particular table at least 3 times over the years.

I must have been really cranky b/c I didn't take a picture of the tater tots & you all know that they're my absolute favorite.

FotLK was next.

I assume we left AK after that b/c I don't have any more pictures. We went to Disney Springs next. My mom really enjoyed it there so we always made sure to go there when she was with us.
I'm pretty sure this is Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar.(I was probably trying to escape the crowds.)

If I'm guessing we most likely took the boat back to POR. I enjoy taking that--it's a nice change from the buses.

We headed back to MK for MVMCP. I just wasn't feeling it. I have been to MVMCP twice prior to this one. I enjoyed the low crowds during them. Today was not that--it was packed!!

I know I was stressed b/c I totally binge ate. I can't remember what the first item was that I got but I distinctly remember getting something, then I got nachos from Pecos Bill and after that I got corn dog nuggets from Casey's. I remember C asking me how I was managing to eat all that.
IMG_1695.JPG
After I consumed enough food for two days in an hours time I decided I was done. No rides, nothing else. It was time to go. My mom felt the same so we left together while B,C & A stayed. I forgot to mention that J, E & J didn't go to this.

My mom & I watched the fireworks from right outside MK. It actually was a great spot to watch them from.

I have to agree with you about Hollywood brown derby, it was the worst dining experience I have ever experienced at Disney as well.
That's too bad....
So maybe it wasn't the fact that they had the place totally overbooked then?

I didn't like my time at HBD either. Something about not having a lot of choices and the service being too slow, if I remember correctly. And that was back in 2004.

C, B, & A got an early breakfast reservation for BOG so they left pretty early for that.

A bit later J, E & J got there.

I look a little happier now!!

J & I took a ride on Space Mountain.

I have no other photos from this day so I don't know what else we did. Our flight was late afternoon so I would think we wouldn't have had time for much.

I remember having chicken there but it wasn't all that. The service was very slow. So, they've stayed consistent since 2004......:hilarious:
