Yesterday was another Universal day, mainly for the minions, so kept short and sweet and wrapped up with dinner at Planet Hollywood in Downtown Disney. I personally didn’t eat but that’s a whole other story..
After a much needed lie-in, we started the day with a trip into Epcot. While we’d covered all the rides we wanted to do, I was seriously lacking in the photo department and wanted to have a proper look round the World Showcase during the daylight hours, so had some quality photo-snapping time with my dad, while Mum browsed Innoventions; that place is a magnet to science teachers!
Also dropped into the Art of Disney store there and treated myself to a total beauty of a canvas: a print of a stunning painting of a Tangled, gah!
We then monorailled from Epcot into the Magic Kingdom (via the transportation center as there’s no direct line) to meet up with the rest of the group for lunch at Be Our Guest, but unfortunately we’d left it too late to chance a walk-in and they were at full capacity 😦
After another lunch at Pinocchio’s Village Haus, we headed across to Tomorrowland for a Space Mountain. The previous few times we’d done it we were lucky enough to have short wait times without a Fastpass, but the standby queue time had hit 85 minutes when we arrived, so we were very grateful that this time we did! Shooting past a queue of slightly disgruntled people, we boarded the ride on the opposite track to the regular riders, and to our surprise had a totally different ride experience.. The right side track was much faster, but felt longer, and had more wild twists and turns, it was great!
We also rode the Liberty Belle around Frontierland and caught a bit of Dreams Come True and the Move it, Shake it Dance Party Parade before heading out of the Magic Kingdom.
Oh, and fall/autumn has begun in Main Street!
So beautiful °o°
