Monday, November 24th: Hollywood Studios
We spent the day in Hollywood Studios and rode lots of rides. Jackson and Brylee loved Rockin Roller Coaster & Tower of Terror! The new Frozen sing a long was great too... It was worth the hour wait our sweet daddy sat in line and held us a spot while we rode another ride since we could not get a fast pass for it. We stayed for Fantasmic (the night show) and then walked to The Spectical of Lights (lots of Christmas lights synchronized to music) and I "tortured" my family and made them wait in line and get their picture made with Santa Goofy! We left Hollywood Studios and went to Magic Kingdom and rode several rides and shut the park down! We knew today was going to be the best weather day of our trip so we crammed as much fun in as we could! It was a good choice!!!
Tuesday, November 25th: Animal Kingdom
Today we woke up to torrential down pour rain! We slept late because we were out late the night before and the thunder and lightning woke us up! Then our phones went off because of the tornado warning. We hung around the hotel and ate breakfast there and weighed our options as to what to do! We could brave the rain and go or stay in the hotel and go to the park on Friday before we left! I knew both situations would have their drawbacks. Rain is no fun and we might be soaked but the crowds would be light. Staying in a hotel room all day with bored kids did not sound fun and we have been to Disney during Thanksgiving and the day after Thanksgiving was crazy busy so I knew the crowds would be nuts. Surprisingly, I was the one that was all on board for going to the park and braving the rain and RP was not. But, being the good husband he is he said well ok let's go! So we all geared up in our rain gear and off we went! It turned out to be a great choice. The major rain stayed north of us and we dodged a huge bullit. It was rain more like sprinkle off and on but nothing like what was predicted. The crowds were light and Jackson and Brylee rode Everest 5 times... They loved it!!! Richard and I rode it with them once and we all got in the first two cars. Jackson was pumped! He loves him a roller coaster! They were also able to ride many other rides they wanted to with very little wait time. Then we headed to Magic Kingdom for some more fun rides. They were able to ride Splash Moutain and Big Thunder Mtn Railroad several times with no lines as well. Then it started raining pretty heavily so we jumped on the train and road it to the front of the park and then caught the bus back to our hotel.
Although I would have chosen sunny and 75 the rain was really not that bad. It made for light crowds which enabled us to ride lots of the big rides with little to no wait. We just put our rain coats on and went. That's just what you have to do in Disney! Just go with it and make the best of it!
We really enjoyed Animal Kingdom this time! In the past it has been our least favorite park but we really enjoyed it this time.
