Day 4, August 06
Two for the price of one! - Part 3
Not sure if the room would be ready we left our carry-ons in the car and headed towards the front desk.
No one ahead of us, so we told the cast member that we had done online check in and were just here to pick up our Magicbands. Didnít take long and we had our new Magicbands and our room was ready as well. Yeah!
We walked over to the elevator, went up and went to check out our room. We walked and walked and walked some more and found that it was at the very end of a corridor. We opened the door and the room was really nice and after taking a few photos
I called to ask if our luggage had already arrived and Tom went to the car to get the carry-ons. A few minutes later there was a knock at the door and our luggage was delivered. The bellman was very helpful, explained about everything in the room and let us know that we should definitely ask for him specifically if we needed some help. When Tom arrived with the carry-ons he was pretty surprised that the rest of our stuff had already arrived. We took a little break, freshened up a bit and then we walked all the way back to the lobby and outside to walk over to Epcot.
It was another nice day and even though it was very hot and humid we enjoyed the walk along Cresent Lake. Soon we had made it to Epcot with no wait at all for bag check and were inside the park.
Again, there were quite a lot of guests, but it was still very manageable. We had booked another FP after we had been on the initial 3 ones in the Magic Kingdom, but we still had a little time until then. So we strolled through the countries, then worked our way up to the fountain and finally we had a good look around Mousegear. Then we headed over to Mission Space. My Disney Experience had been right, there was just a 10 minute wait and we grabbed an orange ticket and hopped in line.
Well, the wait was even shorter than those 10 minutes, because the only time we stopped was after we had been divided into teams. Score. Our mission to Mars was as fun as always and in the meantime our FP had opened up. No long walk, as it was for Test Track. When I had checked in the morning, I had been very surprised to find a FP for it in the afternoon and had grabbed it immediately. Test Track still had quite the line, but we walked through most of it until Ö. there was lightning in the area and they had stopped the ride.
and waited some more
and many of the other people in our holding area just left but we stayed and while we waited I booked another FP, this time for Spaceship Earth. After about 25 minutes the ride was opened again and the line moved quickly. Soon we found ourselves in one of the cars and off we went to test the vehicle. Once we got off we scanned the Magicbands for the ride photo and checked our carís efficiency
and then slowly walked towards the exit, where Tom checked out all the new cars. Next stop Spaceship Earth. We soon made it over and even though the regular line was pretty short, why not use our FP and soon we found ourselves in one of the ride vehicles, just to discover that they were very uncomfortable for Tomís knee, which he had hurt the day before we had left on vacation. There was nothing we could do once the ride had started, so we tried to make him as comfortable as possible and enjoy the rest of the ride. We took a few photos of our future
and after we had gotten off, we watched our photos fly home to the heart of Europe on the big screen.
