Walt Disney World Trip Report: Part 3 – A Disastrous Start

Day 2 – 11/5/2014

After hanging out with Simba and friends I headed back to our lowly standard, non-suite room in the Little Mermaid section. It was after midnight at this point, so I didn’t spend a ton of time taking photos of that section of the resort.

Being West Coasters, it was still relatively early for us, but after a day of travelling we were tired and fell asleep easily.

We woke up and loaded the car and headed for –

Where we had lunch fastpasses for Be Our Guest. Here’s a pro-tip. Do not have multiple Disney accounts, and if you do, definitely don’t link your Magic Band & hotel to one with your theme park tickets to the other. It causes lots of problems and they really can’t fix it. Luckily we brought our physical tickets, so I had that to get in. Guest Services was having all kinds of trouble. The girl wiped my ticket to try & put it on the MB, but when we went to Town Hall they said there were no days on my ticket or MB. We were able to get the days put back on the ticket and just decided to get the MB stuff sorted later since we didn’t want to waste any more time. It was a complete cluster & I don’t recommend it.

Somewhat sorted, we made our way to Adventureland where we rode our first ride of the trip. POTC. The wait was about 20 minutes, and Moms hadn’t been through the queue on the last trip. Apparently we weren’t very good pirates since we came out of their with no booty or treasure. Maybe next time. We stayed in Adventureland for a unique experience (at least for the U.S. parks), the Magic Carpets of Aladdin.

Having visited a whole new world, it was just about time for our lunch. I should say, we aren’t park commandos when we’re at Disney. We like to absorb the atmosphere. Plus, as often as I stop to take photos, it’s hard to maintain a brisk pace. We slowly made our way through Liberty Square with a brief stop at the Tangled restrooms.

We arrived a little early, so Moms took a seat in Gaston’s while I explored a finally finished New Fantasyland.
