|With my backstage pass!|
After all of our fellow tourers arrived (there were 19 of us total), we were given headsets to wear so we could hear our guide the whole time. These were extremely helpful in hearing our awesome guide, Kate, and they worked great. I don't want to go too much into the details of the tour since I want to do a separate blog post about it, but I will say that it was AWESOME. It lasted until roughly 2 pm, and during the tour we rode two rides (Jungle Cruise and Haunted Mansion) and went backstage twice (three times if you count entering the Haunted Mansion through the "crew's quarters"). One of these times was in the Utilidors, which was very interesting to see. Of course, about halfway through, we had that lunch that we had ordered earlier. And here's something interesting, one of the people on our tour was a contractor for New Fantasyland and was doing a site visit to the Be Our Guest Restaurant the following day!

We went back to the resort to take a nap, and soon it was time to get ready for our dinner at Yachtsman Steakhouse (yet again, a full review is coming in the future). Since we were taking Disney transportation, we decided to use a few skillful maneuvers (can you say Friendship Boat?) to get to the Yachtsman. Of course, the boats are SO slow, and at one point we wished we walked, but my knee was still bothering me, so I was glad to be sitting. Soon we arrived at the Yacht Club, and after a little getting lost... um, exploring... we were at the restaurant.

After the Water Parade, some of us exchanged numbers, some went to bed, and the rest of us were driven back to our resorts by the very generous Todd (although his chauffeur services were actually offered by Cheryl who, incidentally, was not part of the carpool). But really, thanks Todd! Otherwise we would've had to get a taxi, I suppose! Once back at our room, we pretty much conked out. We were tired, and we had a fun filled day at the Studios ahead of us!
