    The aquarium is always a must for us
    I always like to see what kinds of fun photos I can get of the sea creatures there. So many of them are picturesque.
    B1 is the only way to Soar!
    For sure!

    Go and get these next time, the nachos are so yummy!
    I very well may on my next trip!

    I think the AP previews brought many locals and everywhere just felt so crowded! Still a fun trip and wouldn’t trade it for anything!
    You may very well be right on this one. Those darn locals! STAY HOME! :laughing: But yes, no trip is really worth trading and all seem to be fun.

    Have an amazing time, if you haven't already!! I'm not even sure of your dates now, and imagine you may even be back! LOL!

    Off track here, :offtopic:how does everyone like the Mandalorian?
    Love it. Only problem is that the episodes are too short and there aren't enough. :rotfl:
    Here are a few pictures of an empty Epcot.
    Not only an empty EPCOT, but a nice last look at an empty version of that iteration of EPCOT.
    As we checked in, I saw Meghan and N, they were also doing a tour around this same time. We said hello and she offered to get a picture of Andi and I at the fountain. She had done a tour with Kiersha before and told us she is a great tour guide!
    Fountain picture, thanks @MeghanEmily
    Awesome! What are the odds? Not only a DIS meet before tours on the same morning, but they have a history with your guide!
    If you don’t have trouble walking and standing for 4-5 hours I would do this tour!! So worth the price and you do get a Disney Visa or AP discount if you have either.
    If anyone has questions let me know.......
    This really looks like an incredible tour! Thanks for sharing.
    chillin with my friend Sigourney Weaver,
    I didn't think that could happen now that the Great Movie Ride is gone.
    We have received 44 inches of snow since the week of Thanksgiving. This is more than double what is normal for a 2 month period.
    44 inches is a bit extreme... however, all we have is mud. Lots of it. I'm kind of ready for winter. I want some frozen ground and snow.
    Andi and I decided to try Nomads lounge. We were able to snag a table outside in the shade. The chairs are so comfortable. This was heaven, it feels like you are on a private veranda in Africa.
    It's always heaven when you find a comfortable, shaded spot to sit down in AK. But really, I've heard nothing but positive things about that place.
    We took the monorail to Epcot. I love arriving on the monorail and checking out the park some before we stop.
    ::yes:: Love that loop!
    Soon it was time to get back to the GF, we took the monorail over. We gathered up our carry on bags from bell service and waited for the DME, boo! Goodbye Grand!
    3. Wait times for everything were a lot to handle this trip, like resort check in, rides, guest services, merchandise shops, QS places, transportation, and picture opportunities.
    ::yes:: Unfortunately, this seems to be the new normal.
    We leave bright and early on 1/14 and if all goes well, we will be seeing the blue skies of Orlando by noon!!
    Well, I hope you're having a great trip!
