Walt Disney World – Day 5 (12/12/14) Trip Log
Started off this cold/overcast morning heading for the Hollywood Studios via Friendship Launch. Arrived ahead of schedule and had to wait about 20 minutes to enter the park. My FastPasses for the day were not together nor what I wanted so we opted to walk out to Toy Story first. It had a posted 20 minute wait so hopped in the Standby line and went for a spin. Continued down Mickey Ave and walked past the former Backlot Tour entrance and stopped by the Wandering Oakens Trading Post which was a ghost town this morning. Took some pictures then continued on to the Premiere Theater for the Frozen Sing-a-long. After the show Walked back to Hollywood Blvd and over to the Animation Courtyard. Spent some time in the animation building then walked through One Mans Dream. Decided to take the boat back to the Yacht and Beach Club and grab some lunch at Beaches and Cream. Then took a bus to the Magic Kingdom and walked to the Contemporary. Took some pictures of the Frozen gingerbread display then hopped on a Monorail to the Polynesian. Walked through the upper floor of the lobby and out to the Launch dock. Took some construction pictures before boarding and cruised to the Magic Kingdom then Grand Floridian. Walked to the lobby and took some pictures of the gingerbread house and Christmas tree then took the Monorail to the Magic Kingdom. Wandered down Main Street USA. Strolled through Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square and into Fantasyland. Doubled back to Main Street and caught the end of the Street Party. Walked up Main Street to Town Square and boarded a train. Took it around to Fantasyland then walked through Tomorrowland on my way to the hub for the Frozen Holiday Wish. Walked through the crowds of Main Street to exit the park. Took a bus to the Hollywood Studios. Grabbed a quick dinner at the Backlot Express then headed out to the Osborne lights to roam around. Stayed past park closing then made my way back to Hollywood Blvd and out of the park. The boat line was at least two full boats and the bus line was not much better so I opted to walk to Epcot. Took about 20 minutes from Hollywood Blvd to France. Walked around to the American Adventure arriving as the Candlelight was wrapping up. I heard Thank You and the recessional music started. I roamed around World Showcase stopping by Japan and then taking a few pictures of World Showcase lagoon before finding a spot for Illuminations. After Illuminations walked back to the Beach Club to call it a night.
