The one unlike nothing you've ever read before - Day8 - New Iphone.Perkins, Animal Kingdom. House of


This morning we are up and dressed at 9 ish. I contact DD and arrange to pick her up... We found a Best buy on Osceola Parkway and secured a replacement (factory refurb) Iphone 6s for $349. DD will pay us back when she's in a tipped job...



Perkins is right next door, so we have breakfast there, all very nice and good service too. Full up, we (I) Drive over to Animal Kingdom and park up in Peacock 8. Straight onto the waiting tram and we are inside AK in minutes.






The standby queue for FOP is 120 minutes, we get a return time of 2:25.



First fastpass was for Expedition Everest which was good as usual, I especially like the fast bit at the end.



Next was the Kilimanjaro safaris, longer than usual due to a breakdown, but at least we were held up in a shaded spot. again saw lots of wildlife.






By now our return window for FOP was open, so we all rode banshee again... just as good even when you know what to expect. Best laugh was when 2 grandparents with granddaughter who were in front of us...grandmother stops ride attendant who was loading us.. dead seriously "excuse me, but in that last room my granddaughter didn't link with a Naavi, will she be ok to ride?" Granddaughter then proceeded to scream and cover her eyes the whole ride...so maybe she didn't link after all!



Before exiting AK we did ITTBAB... great fun
about 50% of the toddlers and babies were crying by the end!



Trip to Disney Springs next and late lunch/early dinner in House of Blues.



DD and I had brisket sandwiches, DW had a bacon cheese burger.



bill with DD's cast member discount was $49



Filled up the car. $40 from empty to full... oh I wish it was this cheap at home.

Parked in MK... Hook 321 again a waiting tram, ... our luck is in today!

We took the ferry this time...great photo opportunity.






Philharmagic first, then my first ever Dole whip...mmmnnn nice...



Then we (3 grown adults) had a FP to meet Mickey Mouse...the big cheese in person!



Beyond pleased at this (need to get a life ha ha)






We waited at the end of main street for Happily Ever After...Well worth the wait...stunning, joyful, spectacular...my photographs don't do it justice...















Within 40 minutes of it ending, we were dropping off DD at Vista Way for the last time ( until December) not a nice feeling and tears all round, but we are leaving her in a good place, she is happy and living her dream and it is only temporary...roll on December...

Tomorrow we travel home, checked in already, just a bit of shopping to do and one last breakfast...

I am really enjoying your report.
It adds a different angle having your daughter working there.

Another good day, apart from saying goodbye to DD of course - it's nice you've been able to spend some quality time with her.

Sounds like quite a packed day (in a good way). I can imagine it mustve been hard to say goodbye to your DD. Glad you managed to find her a new phone!
