This was our short day. We had a flight out at around 7, with the bus from the resort leaving at 4:20. We packed up and checked out, stowing our luggage with the valet. Breakfast was in the Kona Cafe at our hotel. Then we headed straight to EPCOT hoping to get there as the park opened. The Monorail was inexplicably NOT running, so we had to cram into a bus to get there. We made it, but the reason we made it STILL had a long line. The Norway ride was closed last year and was being re-tooled t be “Frozen” themed. It was the most popular ride in all of Disney. Despite being there early, we walked into a 45 minute wait. Long, but the shortest we had seen it while we were there. So we went!
Disappointingly, the World Showcase portion of EPCOT didn’t open until 11am, so we waited about 20 minutes and took in the Cinema 360 “Reflections of China.” After that there was no time to see “the rest of the world,” and so we left the park in time to make our lunch reservation.
Lunch was at Chef Mickey’s in the Contemporary Resort. We to some great pics with some characters courtesy of our awesome waitress! After lunch, we went back to take in the Jungle Cruise, which was now running. After that we had just enough time to catch “It’s A Small World” a second time.
Then it was back to our resort and on to the airport! We arrived in Syracuse at midnight with no delays or complications. We arrived home at 3am and fell quickly asleep.
