Part 1-Part 2-Part 3-Part 4-Part 5
I was up early, of course. The weather was beautiful and we headed over to the Magic Kingdom.
We missed rope drop because it was Morning Extra Magic Hours, but still, everything in Fantasyland was walk on, as was everything in Tomorrowland.
(This was in the middle of the economic downturn, and there were actual periods that the parks were not crowded.)
We walked over to Adventureland and rode Pirates of the Caribbean, and then had lunch at Columbia Harbour House.
We headed to Epcot around Noon. We rode Spaceship Earth, and then went to check out Storm Struck at Innoventions East.
One last ride on Test Track, then over to World Showcase, were we had one last taste
of Epcot's International Food & Wine Festival. Our favorite of the whole event was the Grilled Beef with Chimichurri Sauce from The Buenos Aires Argentina kiosk (Still a favorite till this day, Argentina is now the Patagonia booth. )
We then walked over to the Beach Club, where we split a burger at Beaches and Cream. I also had a No Way Jose Sundae.
MMMM good! By then, it was about 4pm, and we sadly went back to the Boardwalk to wait for Magical Express.
Flew out on the 8:30 flight, and Southwest got us back to Philly early.
Thank you for following this trip, and please stop back for more journeys back in time on future Thursdays.
