We started our day early as we wanted to ride Frozen before the crowd filled in. Cam forgot his Magic Band which delayed us for awhile. Meg was able to save us a place in line while he ran back to get it and we only had a 20 minute wait or so. We were also able to ride Figment, Nemo and Mission Space before heading back to the Boardwalk.
Meg and Cam had passes for the water parks so we decided to try Blizzard Beach next. It had been several years since we had been there. We enjoyed it, especially the lazy river. We had planned on playing mini golf there as well, but as we were leaving the water park a storm blew through. It was a quick one, but it closed the golf course for an hour or so. We decided not to wait and caught the bus back to EPCOT.
After we changed and grabbed sweatshirts we caught the bus to Animal Kingdom. We had a Fast Pass for Expedition Everest and also wanted to see their new show River of Lights. Once we got to the park we were able to do more than we planned riding both Dinosaur and Primeval Whirl. We even had time to catch “It’s Tough to Be a Bug” one of our favorite 3-D shows.
The line for River of Lights started almost two hours before the show began. We waited until 8 to get in line and were told that it would be standing room only. We were all ok with that and only had to wait 30 minutes until they started ushering us to our spots. Cam and I liked the show a lot. Meg wasn’t as thrilled as she felt it was too much like Illuminations. Either way we were glad that we tried it.
