So right after the wonderful parasailing we hopped on the monorail and came to tbe front desk for our room assignment. We discovered we were granted our requests and were thrilled! We stopped to get our mugs and filled them up and went directly to the balcony to enjoy the view! We LOVE our room!

After resting a few minutes we headed to epcot. Left our room at 11:03 and entered epcot at111:30. 7 minute walk to monorail platform from samoa. Epcot was not crowded at all! At 11:30 security loomed like this:

Not bad! We sent DS for soarin fps. Return time was 2:55-3:55 stand-by line 45 minites. Watched glassblower in mexico make a dragon rode the two boat rides, saw ziti sisters in italy drummers in japan then had lunch at via napoli. Eeyore enjoyed the adventures from this vantage point:

After lunch the fp window enforcement forced us to do something we haven't! done in my memory...spend the late afternoon in future world. It was awesome! Except for a 75 minute stand by line for soarin the whole area seemed empty. Could have been partly due to the torrential rain that fell while we were enjoying lunch. It was sprinkling a bit when we made our way from VN to soarin. We got there just in time for or 3:55 latest time. After S! We rode Livin with the Land Figment ride which we haven't done in ages, clam mobile and hung out and watched the dolphins manatees and fish then rode Spaceship Earth. We took our time doing this and left the park by 6:25. We were back in our room by 6;47.

This is one of the things we just love about the Poly. So convenient to Epcot!

We rested in the room for an hour got some sodas in our mugs at captain cooks and enjoyed them on the balcony. It was a beautiful night not too hot! The pool didnt seem crowded.

We left our room a few minutes after 8. We reached the dock around 6 minutes after 8...just missed a boat. We waited about 13 minutes for another and got to mk dock by around 6:30. Walked right on a boat to fort wilderness for the HDDR! We love this show and it did not disappoint us last night! The chicken was a bit dry for a change but there was so much else to eat and we really werent that hungry so we didnt care. The show was fabulous! It was the 9;30 show that ended at 11:15. We waited in the bust until 11:35 went to CR first and then Poly. Back in room by 11:50. We were gonna go swimming but the bus ride made us cold and tired so we called it a night.

I did notice on our short walk back from the bus stop that there are definitely guests in Tokelau!

We are up and at em this morning for mk rope drop lunch.at liberty tree Dis meet at tambu dinner at citricos and emh at mk.

More on all that later!

I didnt think security was that bad for 11:30. But then we almost never enter a park at that time of day. Eeyore is having a blast! Be especially liked the sangria at hDDR!

Can't wait to read about VN at Epcot. Thinking about adding it to our dining experience. I've heard a lot about how great it is. Excited to hear about the crowd levels at MK and to see those castle pictures. My resort changing instincts are kicking in and now I'm thinking....Poly...hmmmm. Is the pool over crowded? This is one of my biggest fears.

We left our room at 8:30 and made it through the mk turnstiles by 8:42. Now waiting for welcome ceremony. Crowd not bad at this point.

After reading all you did on Saturday it was a full day, but
today - starting with the rope drop (always fun and exciting - any pics ?)
you and Eeyore will be even busier.
Enjoy !
