I want to watch the MK opening ceremony on our first morning in the world, just before our parasailing apt. At 10 am....but I don't want to use a days ticket. I can't remember, is there somewhere to watch without having to scan a ticket?

Marie, you don't even need to enter the turnstiles to see the rope drop show. It's right there out front.

So cute!

We're going to WDW in a couple of weeks and planning to take our daughter's stuffed monkey along for the adventure!

AHH! that's reassuring! I thought that was the case, then got confused when iloveeyore said she entered the turnstile to wait for the show! Glad to know I can still see it without entering the park

Eeyore's least favorite dessert at LTT was the ooey gooey toffee cake? I've never tried it, but I've heard such good things about it. I'm looking forward to hearing what he enjoyed more.

I'll definitely await your dining review but did Eeyore not like the ooey, the gooey, or the toffee part of the cake?? I LOVE that dessert - ice cream on the side please.

Looking forward to your adventures tomorrow!

Tambu with fightinillini229 and MCDomzal was fantastic! We had such nice conversation with wonderful people! We were a little disappointed we didn't meet anyone else. Hope everyone is well and enjoying their trip!

Eeyore couldn't decide whether he preferred the back scratcher or the lapu lapu!

After our delightful predinner cocktails we headed over the the GF for a fabulous dinner at Citricos, our first time there. We checked in at 7:35 for our 8:00 adr but we wanted to allow more time to get to main street for wishes. It's a good thing they were able to seat us early because we just made it to the park as magic memories and you was beginning. We never get tired of wishes! It makes us cry every time!

Can't wait to read your review of Citrico's. We will be trying it for the first time next month.

After wishes we rode jungle cruise with 5 minute wait, pirates no wait. Lines for splash and BTMRR which we most wanted to ride were more than 30 minutes...i think maybe 45m? So we decided to wait it out until later and catch them when the park cleared out more.
