Star Wars vs disney.. The Rainy adventure

So We are back from star wars weekends which was may 22-25. Our troop was me, my husband, my sister ,our friend kat, my husbands bestfriend, and our godson.

3 day park hopper
magic plus dinning
pop centery

We left from stewart airport in newburge ny to orlando. We arrived on time with rain coming down. As we walked to the magical express we all became excited.

We look outside and it is a downpour. Yikes rain all weekend? The cast members at the magical express where every pushy. Last time i took magical express they wanted one family member to check your party in. as i went to check us in while the smokers in the group when outside. in a very rude voice she said is you whole party here. With a big smile on my face i said no. well the whole family has to be here she barked at me. woo ok not a problem. I understand things change. we got in line to take the bus and ya we are on the bus. We sat in the back of the bus. My sister said dont sit there. What? Why? she turned around and her backside was soaked. As we made turns water was pouring in to the bus. we never laughed so hard.

We checked in to the pop. My sisters name was wrong on the rezzy so they changed it with out a problem.

Our rooms where not ready. so we had lunch. 4 of us had the parm chicken and it was so yummy. 1 had a burger and the godson had the kids burger. the godson was not happy he wanted a big meal and was so hungry. he is 8 and the meal plan was a childs meal plan. not good for him he has a bottomless pit of a stomach

Then the fun started we each bought the plastic rain coats and headed to star wars weekend.

Que the star wars theme music

day one the sequal

So it started to rain again so we desided to go to toy story we waited in line it said 70 min. well what are we going to do lets wait and get dry. so as we wait out side the water is running down my front in the disney rain coat. My hair is so wet i took off the hood. we had a family behind us that did not no personal space. we enter the inside finally. we look and i said lets get out of the line and check the special shop for star wars. so we did


before the rain



my husband using the force to be in the jedi academy

so this day was a waste of a day the cameria pretty much stayed in my bag due to the rain. my hubby and i did not want to go on tower of terror so the others with us went as we walked toward our adr. the wait was 20 minutes for tower of terror .

it finally stoped raining and i was staring to dry out for dinner.

The rain doesn't sound like much fun! I hope it got better for you, but from your title, I'm guessing not!
