Alas, James still has the Segway picture, so I'll begin my trip report instead of doing the Segway post. If you don't want to read about my trip report, your regularly scheduled blog posts will be returning in, well, approximately seven posts.
Online check-in went extremely well (see my previous post), and we had our room assignment in no time. Aside from the fact that our room was in the middle of nowhere (the second to last room in the back of the last building), we were pleased, and we decided it was time to eat dinner at Beaches and Cream! We took the Hollywood Studios bus, and got on a Friendship boat there. That took us to Beach Club, and after a little asking around, we made our way to Beaches and Cream. We even got a table right away!
As it got later, we headed over to Hollywood Studios, as we did have park admission for that first partial day. We walked instead of taking a Friendship boat back, and it was really a nice walk. We arrived and had time for one ride: the Great Movie Ride of course! Oddly enough, a girl I knew in elementary school was our guide on the ride. Who'd have known? After that, we headed over to see Fantasmic (for the first time!). After waiting a ridiculous amount of time in a crowded, sweaty line - yuck! - we ended up getting great seats! James and I had both never seen it, and we both loved it! The first thing James said after it ended was, "that was amazing." A+ in our books!
And finally, it was time to head back to the room and get to sleep for our Magic Kingdom day to come!
