Trip Report The (second) ONE with enhanced cleaning and (a little less) Physical Distancing. Sept 2020

How is everyone doing out there???

A little background on this trip. This trip was origionally booked as a Food and Wine/Birthday girls getaway with two of my friends. We booked The Poly at 7 months Thursday through Sunday. (One friend’s bday was Thurs, the other was Sunday! Sooooo perfect!!!)
Buuuuut, they are both teachers and were not allowed to go. (Read that again. Not Allowed☹️)
I had the reservation and I wanted to go. My friend, R and I had a trip in April we had canceled. We had rescheduled for October to do a Halloween party (Nope!) and a DVC moonlight madness (Nope again). Then, she lost her job😞 so she came back to work with me. Her Mom, Gpa and Uncle own the business.
“Hey R, want to go to Disney in September instead?”
“Yeah!”
“Should we add a night? I still have 18 points I can use.”
“Yeah”
“Do you think we can get the extra day off?”
She looks at me. I look at her. 😂😂😂
I mean, her Mom makes the schedule.

She booked her flight, bought her park tickets, made her park reservations and we were set.

Tuesday night, September 15th I caught the sunset and headed to bed for an early start the next morning.

Wednesday, September 16 came early. R’s Gma was flying back to Ft Lauderdale an hour before our flight. So we all went together to help her out.

We were not sitting together because our flights were booked seperately. I asked to move us together but I asked on the late side and it was a no go. It was fine. We watched movies. I love Jet Blue TV’s!

Yay! The sign said 45 minute wait. The woman who checked us in pointed out the sign and said it “could” take 45 minutes.

Overheard on the ME: “Mom, I dont want to go to the Magic Kingdom!”
“Where do you want to go?”
“Legoland!!”
Haha😂
Lets check the weather...

Back of the bus. Not a 45 minute wait but about 20.

Too far in the back of the bus to get THE SIGN. How about the side of the road? Almost as good???

For the record, we went to Wilderness Lodge, BLT, the Contemporary and then The Polynesian.

We finally made it and were ready to let the fun begin!!

Sorry you didn't like the Brazilian cheese bread that much. If it is fresh and hot it is best but can be a bit gross if it isn't. I like it best at Skipper Canteen when it comes with a dipping sauce. When I make it at home I usually have some sort of dip for it.

Yes! Dipping sauce! It was rather bland. I wish there were some Brazilians there (haha, said no one ever) to ask how/if they eat this in Brasil.

We continued on with the thought of going on Frozen.
Foreshadowing???

Elsa was still doing her weird arm stuff.

And this was still the most beautiful of all.

The Frozen wait was still long.

*tip: most wait times are inflated except Frozen and 7dmt. And the buses😂

We ended up on a different boat ride.

R liked the mango layer the best. I was partial to the strawberry. And the original. And the mango.

We headed to Test Track hitting up the ladies room on the way.
Look! Bunnies!

And our room is ready. It’s late but it’s ok because it is going to be the BEST!

I may be in the minority but I like TT so much better without the design your car element. To me it was a waste of time.
Instead we sauntered through the queue and I spotted this.
CLAY!
This is the color of the castle.

Aloha!
We flew topping out at 65 mph. It sure does feel faster than that.

I'm with you on not missing the design element on TT either! :) I love that you both got to taste test so much at Epcot on this day so far! Your M&M chocolate freeze pop is a definite on the must try list for my October trip! Can't wait to see your room view at the Poly!!!
