Nick and Alli were thrilled to pieces to meet The Rock. It was a perfect ending to a wonderful vacation.
Did ya miss me? Did ya, Did ya?
We went on our 6th annual Disney Family vacation and boy did we have a good time. We did a ton of walking so I am still recuperating but we did get to do a lot. Because we were there during the week (not the weekend) and it is what's considered the off season, there was little to no waiting on many of the attractions we went on. Besides the rides at Epcot and Animal Kingdom, the same held true for the Magic Kingdom. Pirates of the Caribbean, Thunder Mountain, Buzz Lightyear, The Laugh Floor and The Haunted House were no wait attractions leaving us plenty of time to enjoy the pool for several hours.
On our first night we ate at Japan in Epcot. It's an upstairs restaurant and we were seated up front which is all glass. Dinner was at 8:45 so we got to see all the fireworks.
On our last night we at in Canada's Le Cellier and it was the best meal I have ever had in any of the Disney restaurants. It was a bit pricey but we are always prepared for that on our family trips.
Our check out was at 11AM on Saturday which happened to be my son's birthday. This year, Disney's policy is to give you a free ticket to get into any park free. But if you have a season pass, as we all do, they give you a gift card with the value of the entry fee instead. So my son walked over to Epcot to get his gift card while the rest of us hung out at the pool.
We all finally left in the late afternoon (though we all wanted to stay longer). My son stopped at a local gas station and who do you think he ran into?
