Walt Disney World Resort

Walt Disney World Day 5 – Summary

Due to the long day and tomorrow an early one for Animal Kingdoms birthday just a trip log/summary tonight.

Started off the morning heading for the Magic Kingdom. Arrived around 8:30am and hung out in front of the train station with the crowd waiting for the opening ceremony. They ran the show at 8:45am then opened the gates to head into the park. Roamed around Main Street and the hub. Watched the Spring Trolley show then walked through Adventureland and out to Big Thunder. Hopped on the WDWRR and took it to Storybook Circus. Roamed around there a bit then walked through Fantasyland and out to the new Fantasyland. Doubled back through Fantasyland and stayed in the area for a bit. Then walked by the Storybook Circus to see if the Giggle Gang was out. Decided it was lunch time so grabbed something from the Starlight Café. Then walked back through the Circus and circled around to Tomorrowland to go for a spin on the Carrousel of Progress. Next up a trip on the Express Monorail to the TTC then transferred to the EPCOT line. Unfortunately the rain started while enroute so that meant no good pictures and I then had to walk through the park in the rain. Walked through Future World and out to World Showcase. Paused in Canada to watch Off Kilter for a minute then continued on to the Beach Club to catch a bus to Downtown Disney to meet some relatives. Found them at Ghirardellis and visited for a while. Once done it was back on the bus, this time to the Grand Floridian where I transferred to the Monorail to the Magic Kingdom. While in Town Square caught an abbreviated Flag Retreat due to the weather. Then decided to take a ride on the WDWRR. I disembarked at the Storybook Circus and as I made my way to Tomorrowland the skies opened. Managed to find a dry spot to sit and wait for the rain to pass. Spent almost an hour in the area avoiding the rain. Grabbed a hot dog and then went for a ride on the People Mover. The rain had let up so wandered through Fantasyland and around to Liberty Square. Walked through Frontierland and into Adventureland. Decided to visit the Enchanted Tiki Room. Afterwards wandered back through Liberty Square and into Fantasyland where I went for a cruise on Small World. Once back walked around the Castle and down Main Street. Only had a few minutes until the Main Street Electrical Parade was supposed to start so found a spot and waited. It was delayed twice due to weather. I wandered around to the front of the train station for some pictures then heard the music queue up so returned to Main Street for the parade. After the parade headed for the bus, Pop Century and bed.
