Just Back: Best way to celebrate 50th Birthday

Sunday 2/17 - Sunday 2/24

Sunday 2/17 - Magic Kingdom was open til 2:00am.

We arrived at 10:00pm and stayed til 1:00am. FP at Space Mountain return time 11:00pm, but no waits on the following rides:
Buzz Lightyear
New Ariel Ride at Fantasyland
Haunted Masion
Two trips on Thunder Mtn because Electrical Magic parade was going on

Monday 2/18 - Hollywood Studios
Big mistake should not have done this park on President's Day. They were packed. Arrived at 9:00am and FP return time for Toy Story was 3:45pm. Areosmith ride was down most of day. Muppet Movie was down in morning. Indianna Jones and Beauty and Beast morning shows were sold out 15 mins before showtime. Backlot tour was pretty good but Stunt Show was amazing!
The new Pirates show was pretty good but not worth the 30 min wait and you stand the entire time. By 11:00 we got next FP for Areosmith and RT was 6:25pm. By 1:00pm we got final FP for Tower of Terror and RT was 6:25pm. At 3:45 returned to Toy Story and ride was down! UGGH! Went to Guest Relations to complain and they were able to give us FP return tickets for another day for all three rides. Headed to dinner at Epcot (25 min boat ride) and then back to Studios since they had extra magic hours til 10:00. Only able to do Tower of Terror and Aerosmith, but Toy STory was still 60 min wait. Worst day ever at Studios. Lesson learned only do Studios when they have early morning extra magic hours.

Tuesday, 2/19 - Golf at Magnolia then DVC lounge for snacks and Fireworks

Caught a courtesy cab from BW to Magnolia at 8:30am which gave plenty of time to hit a bucket of balls before our 10:00am t-time. We started off on back nine. Very challengin but I still managed to get two Birdies and one bogie. Bloody Mary's from beverage cart were amazing. Weather was super and we could see the Kelly and Michael blimp the whole time. Love hole 6 with the Mickey sandtrap. Great snack bar at Hole1 for Hotdogs and beverages. Slow speek on course took just over 4 hours for 18.

Returned to BW for a dip in Community Hall pool since the main pool was under construction. Got ready for dinner around 5:00.

Took bus from BW to MK (20 mins since MK is first stop) and then took monorail to Contemporary, I know we could have walked but I must get a monorail ride in every trip. Walked over to BLT and checked in with DVC member desk to go up to DVC lounge. Snacks were delicious but truly not enough for a dinner. The Fireworks from MK came on at 8:00am and it was a magical night. After the show we took bus back to MK and then our bus back to BW and had Funnel cakes with Ice-cream and chocolate sauce for our nightcap.

Wednesday 2/19 - Extra Magic Hours at Animal Kingdom

Took the 7:30 bus from BW to Animal Kingdom. Arrived just before park opening. Party went ahead to Safari ride and I ran and got FP for Everestt. The safari ride in the moring was great, seemed like alot of animals were eating.
