Day 8 – Thursday 27th September 2012 – DHS
We were supposed to be up at 6.45am and heading to MK AM EMH however when the alarm went off it was turned straight back off. We slept in until 10.15am – possibly the effects of one pint too many in Steven's case.
We had breakfast in the room – pancakes and bacon and a bounty platter. We then went to the pool at 11.15am and stayed there until around 1pm. We had dinner at the hotel before going out.
We headed over to DHS at 3.45pm. We were hoping to get in to see Beauty and the Beast but the show had already started. We then went to TOT but it was closed as it had broken down, so we went on RnR which was only a 10 minute wait.
TOT was fixed when we came off so we rode that then went over to Beauty and the Beast as the next show was at 5.45pm and the theatre opened at 5.15pm.
We had great seats and were ready for the show.
Half way through the show the rain and thunder began. Just after the beast transformed into the Prince they stopped the show as it was too wet on the stage to continue. Everyone was slightly annoyed but we were fine with it, it means we get to see it again another day.
We then went next door and started to queue for Fantasmic. It was around 6.15pm at this point.
The rain continued and continued and continued until 7pm. We were finally allowed into the theatre just after 7pm. We had great seats in the Mickey section.
The pre-show entertainers came out and motivated the crowd and played a few games like finish the rest of the song lyrics and a Disney trivia quiz. Steven had brought his iPad and was playing on Fifa. The time seemed to fly over and the show began.
Fantasmic was brilliant. It’s only the 2nd time Steven and I have seen the show.
We hung around at the end until the crowds died down. By the time we got out a bus for POR was full and ready to leave but we were guaranteed a spot on the next bus as the queue wasn’t too long.
We picked up a pizza from the food court when we got back and ate it in our room.
