Got my spot for illuminations at epcot. First time seeing it in years and they are replacing it with a new firework show this fall so i plan to enjoy my old school fireworks show while it's still around.
JHDK, the narrator of the IllumiNations show is Jim Cummings, who has voiced many hundreds of characters in animated films, cartoon series and video games, including Winnie-the-Pooh, Tigger, Pete, Kaa, Bonkers, King Louie, Darkwing Duck and Big Bad Wolf. That's your trivia -- and now for the news:
The bans on smoking, vaping, push wagons and wide strollers are intended to ease crowding and congestion at the theme parks. Really? As long as Disneyland crowds continue to be a thousand times larger than the crowds at Times Square on New Year's Eve, those bans will have no effect on the congestion.
Disney parks will ban smoking and oversized strollers
Week 3 of #RetirementLife is at an end and I once again plan to celebrate another successful week of my father not dying by heading over to Disney. Seems more than ever this is now my weekly escape. I've gone every Monday since I moved in with him.
Anyway, today should be fun. It's still nice, not too hot, weather in Orlando and I plan to make a detour to see my aunt and uncle before I hit the parks.
See you guys again when I'm trying to kill time waiting in line.
We've had the Five Guys Meme Fry review Youtube post. And we've had racist Wolf and his Taco Fry with ketchup review Youtube post...Well I'm joining the fun, not my upload but here my big fat ass is asking some random Disney streamer what her channel was. Check out the sweet, sweet shot of my Seiko SKX 009, on my patriotic strap, in the frame as she digs through her bag to give me her card.
The plan for tomorrow is to wake up at like 5 am and make it to Animal Kingdom at opening. I'd like to do Flight of Passage again but tomorrow is an "Extra Magic Hour" day for hotel guests meaning they will get to enter the park an hour early and by the time I get there the line may already be over an hour or two. We'll see.
I also plan to bring all my meals with me tomorrow. I keep a cooler in the back of the RAV and did a bunch of shopping yesterday so I'll be making a sandwich and packing a bunch of snacks. Should turn out to be one of my cheapest ever Disney trips between no food stops and taking I95 for the first 80 miles to avoid the Turnpike tolls.
It will be a sad day though because after tomorrow I will be blacked out until 4.29.19. Two weeks of #RetirementLife with no Disney in between may be rough.
Sadly flight of pasaage isn't happening, it's already a 135 min wait. So i went straight to Kilimanjaro safari, only 20 mins. I've never been on it this early so it will be neat to see what animals are early birds. After this it shold be time for my Dinosaur fastpass.
Ok did Kilimanjaro and Dinosaur and now I'm about to do Everest for the 4th time in a row tjanks to a very open single rider line. Then it's off to Hollywood Studios for rockin roller coaster and tower of terror. It will be my first time on tower since i bought the annual pass. Ive been refreshing the app trying to get a fastpass for it all morning and it finally paid off.
Just had a delicious car meal in the Hollywood studios lot. Now off to wander around the park. This is my least favorite park but even my least favorite park in Disney is still a place I'd gladly go to every day of the week.
Quick detour to guest relations. My magic band which serves as my ticket and fastpass flew off my wrist on the rockin roller coaster. Luckly I carry the credit card like ticket they also gave me when I bought the pass and it doea all the same stuff but I'll need to get a replacement band.
