So, for the past few weeks I’ve been stressing about my trip to Disney World. Specifically, I’ve been worried about Toy Story land, which is opening this summer at Hollywood Studios. See, I’m getting to Florida late. Like, my plane lands at eleven at night, which means I’m probably not getting to my hotel until around one and I’ll have spent all day at the airport or on a plane, just don’t see myself getting to any park at rope drop the next morning. I’m just not that person.
No problem, though. The Unofficial Guide said that Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom can be enjoyed even if you don’t get there right when they open. Yeah, Animal Kingdom has Pandora, but it’s still doable. So, I’d planned to do Hollywood Studios the first day, then Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Magic Kingdom the last day.
And then, it occurred to me that Toy Story land might open the weekend before I went. Which would make it uber crowded. And not a good choice for going later. So, I swapped it and Animal Kingdom, but that made me unhappy because the more I heard about Animal Kingdom, the more I want to spend the whole day there.
Disney answered my prayers today. Toy Story land opens June 30, which is my last day in the parks. I’ve got breakfast and lunch reservations at MK, and it’s my day to just relax and take things slowly. I mean, it’d be really cool to be at Toy Story land the day it opens, but it’s just not going to happen, and that’s fine. Maybe, if the park doesn’t get to capacity and close, I’ll hop over to it after my lunch at Be Our Guest (THE BEASTS CASTLE!!!!!!!) just to say I was there. But it’s not a priority. (I mean, you’re talking about the girl who didn’t make it to Disneyland’s 50th until ten. My mom was there at opening, but I’d already done the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (?) midnight party and Comic Con that weekend. I just couldn’t do it).
In other Disney World news, the Sketchers Go Walks are not the shoes for me. They are insanely comfortable to teach in and I’m glad I bought them because, oh my God, they are so comfortable. But the minute I try to take a long walk, they start rubbing all over and I know they’ll give me blisters. So now I’m trying a pair of old tennis shoes I had before my current shoes. I’m going to get some insoles, because they hurt the bottoms of my feet on the treadmill today, but I think I walk harder on the treadmill than I do normally, so I hope insoles help. If not, I’ll try the Crocs next. I know no shoe will be perfect, but I want something comfortable.
In non-Disney news, a hummingbird got into the school library yesterday. Apparently there were two originally (and they were mating), but by the time I got there, there was just the one.
Also, I never noticed that sign had a quote from Alice in Wonderland on it before the bird landed on it. Once again, I am no Sherlock Holmes.
