Blogging from A to Z April Challenge 2016 - Letter F

Disney World Vacation:
  Planning, Prepping, Packing and Postponing a trip of a lifetime and things I learned along the way.

Fast Pass +: I think you begin to get the idea that Disney and all its Magic was beyond my imagination. Alison explained about the great airport to airport service that staying on Disney property affords you. A shuttle bus meets you at the airport, takes you straight to the resort you will stay at (we had booked the Port Orleans Resort- Riverside) and then at the end of our stay we meet the shuttle and it takes us back to the plane.
Looking through the brochures and books, I found that Disney Parks personnel don't want the thousands of visitors a day to wait on long lines; if visitors are willing to book themselves for certain times to tour an attraction, climb on a ride, watch a show, then those times are reserved for you through Fast Pass +and there is a much shorter wait. 
Walt Disney World has been testing out their MyMagic+ system for a while now, but many families still haven't had the opportunity to experience the new FastPass+ system. It's so different from the ...:

So, while sitting in the relative comfort of Alison's kitchen, with cups of Tim Horton's delicious coffee at our elbows, we planned the fun part of the trip. I deferred to her expertise and we set up each day of our visit with what Alison recommended and what was still available now that it was the middle of November. 
A typical day looked like this-
We would be in the Animal Kingdom theme park.
9:30am-Lion King
10:30- Finding Nemo
12:40-Kilamanjaro Safari
2:45- Flights of Wonder
3:30- It's Tough to be a Bug
4:15- Dinner at Yak and Yeti
Evening spent at Disney Springs- the other side of the world from this park.
In between we would be seeing the other attractions in Animal Kingdom and eating breakfast and lunch. Oh, and watching the wild animals (definitely my choice).
