Monday January 27th:
5:10am alarm. Met Stacey and Stefan near their room at 6:15am and walked to their car. They drove us to HS. Parked and left our bags in the trunk. It took a bit to get through the parking attendant to then get a parking spot. Since we were bagless, we got through and to turnstiles quickly. In the park by 6:45-6:50am. Stacey got them boarding group 60 and we got 79! Ryan and Stefan got in SB line, though we should have done that sooner while waiting for boarding groups to open up. Stacey and I went out to the car and grabbed our bags and went through security with no lines. We got into SB just before they ordered. We took our drinks and did standby for Rockin with a posted 30 min wait. We really loved chatting with them the entire time too! We were all hungry so we went into Galaxy’s Edge and grabbed the breakfast pitas, wow, those are good! We walked them to Oga’s for their reservation. Ryan and I went to Launch Bay to see if they would warranty our phone cases since the bumpers were broken and they did! They just swapped the bumper edge and we kept our Dopey picture part. It was a quick swap and it was free! Thanks to the suggestion of Stacey since they had done it before. Ryan and I walked the shops since several had just opened after refurbs and changes. Then to Tower at 10:25am for our FP, standby was 160 min. We waited 15-20 min. Then to Smugglers with a standby posted 80 min but we only waited 45 min. Lunch at PizzaRizzo of pepperoni pizza and mousse dome. Teri and Kailey met us there to eat with us. It was time to meet up with Jeff (@grumpytude) and his family at Star Tours. It was great to finally meet him!! Stacey and Stefan were able to say hi real quick too after riding Rise! Teri and Kailey went to ride their Alien FP while we all rode Star Tours with our FP’s. We then said our goodbye’s to Jeff and his family. Ryan and I got the notification that our boarding group was ready for RotR, it was 2:01pm and had 2 hours to show up. We went straight there. We got in line and were on and off within 45 minutes. We had a few slightly different scenes this time than we did a couple weeks ago! We learned that the front car and back car have a few subtle differences in their experience. It was so much fun again! We met Teri and Kailey at SB for caffeine and water since we had finished all our water. We all went and watched the Lightning McQueen Training Academy show. Teri hadn’t seen it yet. It’s a fun show. We took group pics and said our goodbyes. Ryan and I went to the Sky Liner to hop to Epcot. We decided to stop off at Riviera to check out the new resort. It’s beautiful! The mosaics for Tangled and Peter Pan were jaw dropping. We went to the pastry/coffee shop on the 2nd floor. We shared the Hazelnut Profiteroles and brownies. Both were so amazingly good! Worth the stop and we will stop there again in the future! We boarded the Sky Liner to finish our journey back to Epcot. We went to China for dinner again! Ryan got their special with fried rice, Mongolian Beef and pot stickers. I had the Orange Chicken. It was all delicious. We watched the China Circle Vision. We had forgotten to find the Duffy mural in Japan the other day, so we found it tonight. We then watched the Beauty and the Beast Sing Along. Then the new Canada Circle Vision. We grabbed the Lemon Blood Orange Tart at Decadent Delights, so yum! Then took a cruise with the 3 Caballeros in Mexico. We were tired so we worked our way to the Sky Liner and were back to Pop by 8:45pm. We packed and had lights out at 10:30pm.
