We got ourselves up and checked out at the Sheraton, and headed over to the GC!! So exciting! We dropped off our bags and Mike went to park the car while I checked us in, and set up our keys etc. They would be texting when the room was available. Mike met us and we headed into the park, and it was just about 8:15!
If you refer to the link above, you'll see the trouble we had with the passes (again). We went on the Nemo ride first; the wait was longer than we expected, but we figured it would only get worse, so we waited. I thought it was really cute, better than living seas nemo, Mike wasn't as impressed. Then we were going to go on Matterhorn, and Joel was like "I'm not going on that- are you nuts?" so, in keeping with the wise words of Timon and pumbaa we "let the cubs decide" and skipped it for now. We headed into Fantasyland and did a ton of short wait rides; dumbo, the carousel, Casey's, then over to POTC, then it was time to eat. Mike and Joel had both eaten bananas earlier, but I was hungry. We went to the French Market for "brunch", and it was pretty good. We showed our passes for the AP discount, and it wasn't working right- we did get the discount though- and then we we went back to the AP place (see link above).
Did I mention how hot it is now?
Anyhoo, we just kept doing rides, the train, winnie the pooh, Joel wasn't tall enough for Splash Mountain but we did go on the gadget coaster! We got the text that the room was ready about 2:30, and headed over around 4. We've just been waiting for our luggage (which has since arrived), and now we're heading to the pool! Our view is totally wicked awesome too! If I knew how to add pictures (I will later) I'd show it here!
