Woke up before the 6am alarm. Left room at 7:40am and drove to AK with S&K. We were near the front of the line again at the parking toll booths. We were the 2nd car to park. Park opens at 9am but they let everyone in early. Straight to FoP and we didn’t stop walking in the queue until just before the pre-show room! We were off just after 9am! Kathy went to Navi while Ryan, Scott and I rode Everest. It was a walk on. We got the back row. We rode again with another near walk on! Then stopped for a Mickey Bar break. Met Kathy and rode safari. It was posted as 40 minutes but was really 10 minutes. The lionesses and lion were being feisty and chasing each other! We saw the newer baby giraffes and zebra! Dinosaur with a posted 5 minute wait. But they had technical issues while we were in line so it took longer. Maybe 15 minutes or so? We mobile ordered lunch in Pandora. Had the cheeseburger pods and chicken and rice bowl. Went immediately to get it right around noon. Inside seating was full so we ended up outside. Thankfully it was in the shade so it wasn’t too bad. Nice to get the masks off for a bit. After lunch Ryan and I did FoP, posted wait was 40 minutes. Got in line at 12:55pm and were in the pre-show room at 1:13pm. In line for Navi at 1:40pm, posted 40 minutes. On at 2:15pm. I grabbed SB for us while Ryan went to grab soft serve. His got pretty melty by the time he got back to me. But we relaxed inside without our masks for a good hour. It was getting warm. We rode FoP one more time! In line at 3:35pm, posted wait was 30 minutes, in pre-show at 3:50pm. We then got pics in front of the Tree of Life and met S&K there. We all walked to the car and drove to DS. We found a few of the new Christmas Trees scattered around instead of having the traditional Tree Trail. We walked through some of the shops. We found the new The Child “Grogu” Lego display at the Lego Store. We then went to our reservation at Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’. Fried chicken and donuts for me. Chicken fried steak and chocolate pecan pie for Ryan. So yummy but so full!! We were waddling! We all waddled to the car. That’s when I realized I had forgotten to text Robin to meet up with her at DS. But we were already past security and so tired. So I texted her to apologize that we couldn’t meet up. We got back to our room and packed up since we head home tomorrow. I had gotten a text from my sister that my mom had fallen in her apartment and was going to the hospital to see if she had hit her head. But she told us not to go since we can’t go into the hospital right now with Covid restrictions. We had lights out at 10:30pm.

And so nice to not have to put our masks on until we got to the parks! Chef Art Smith’s was amazing! Boy oh boy were we waddling for sure!February 18, 2021 at 11:30 am #146180
@nascfan It really was gloriously uncrowded! We were shocked to ride FoP 3 times by early afternoon! Ryan is awesome! You’re very welcome! It was super nice to not have to wear masks until getting to the parks! Dinner was amazing! We looked awesome on our waddle though!
