Sun 9/17 2006
We were up early and took a walk around the beautiful lake at Coronado Springs before getting to Animal Kingdom for rope drop.
They had a wonderful opening show with the fab 5 at the time.
Lunch was at Tusker House, back when it was a counter service restaurant.
This was our first time at the AK, and we spent a good portion of the day there before heading to the Magic Kingdom.
After riding a few rides, we hopped the monorail to the Polynesian for dinner at O’hana.
Before the very tragic accident in 2009, guests were allowed to ride in the front.
Following a delicious dinner, we went back for a few more rides at the MK before calling it a night.
Rope drop at Epcot, and another opening show that is a distant memory.
Over to Mission Space, where my wife rode the green and I rode orange. Even the non spinning side made me ill, while the green side threw her hip out! Someone that was on with her was out in front of the ride visibly ill! Never again for either of us!
We took a boat over to MGM (yes, Disney's Hollywood Studios was still Disney MGM Studios in 2006) for dinner at The Hollywood Brown Derby, which until this day is my favorite restaurant in WDW.
