Trippity Doo Dah - My Oh My What A Wonderful Day Oct/Nov 19 Day 2 Ak And Epcot


So after yesterday's events we had made a pact to get up and start again. We missed eemh as we had got in bed so late the previous night . I'd cancelled our Tusker reservation at reception after the accident but managed to get one later in the morning , so anyone wondering about adrs , most are available to get a very short notice .

I'd spent an hr talking to a manager at the yacht and he arrange for a taxi for us to get to ak which we were grateful for. So we arrived around 10am and went to Tusker house. Last time we went the service was dire but they redeemed themselves and we had a steady breakfast.
We had the buffet and me and mum tried a mimosa , she hated hers so guess who had 2 . We did a few rides but it was boiling in the park . Dh and I had arranged the Dvc tour which the others were going to come on but they decided to stay in the park while we went . My word copper creek is nice , the tour guide was fabulous and we ended up there for 2 hrs chatting about Disney and Dvc a little . We got some anytime use fp and $150 which was great . It was t a hardship going as we have talked about Dvc a lot lately so at least I'm armed with even more info now. We still are tempted to sign up but a small part of me is holding back .



Not a cheap breakfast.



Kevin 😍😍😍



Ds and mum managed to munch there way through some snack credits mainly on mr kamals fries and ice lolly's while dh and I shared these . Ooo they were good .

We decided to go back to the yacht using the bus. I have to say the buses really are dire for here and we seem to wait Ages for them. We got back did the refil cups and filled our water bottles to keep in the fridge and ds went for a swim .

Tonight was dinner at Epcot at nine dragons . Again I moved it as everyone was suffering from lack of sleep and the heat but we were looking forward to it. I had an 8:15 reservation and the restaurant was practically empty . We got a fabulous window seat with a perfect view of the fireworks . My goodness the food is good here and a refreshing change from the usual steak, salmon , usual fayre menu .



Pork belly buns , amazing



Pot stickers



Treasure rolls



Lamb ( said this was delicious )



Honey chicken ( amazing but far too big a portion of chicken )



Nine dragons fried rice ( huge bowl )



Our server deserved the tip as he was exceptional , the park had closed but they insisted we stayed and didn't rush at all. 10/10 for this one . I'd even pay oop.

To finish the day we had half hr left before the skyliner closed so we hopped on at Epcot over to CBR and back . It was brilliant and we just caught the HS fireworks while up there.

After all the events it finally felt like we were on holiday and so far the park staff are winning way above and beyond the resort ones .

We are enjoying it , still aching but enough days were ruined . I am looking forward to to getting out of the yacht though tomorrow. No one seems happy staying here at the moment .
