My initial plans for this day were to go to Animal Kingdom. Then about two weeks ahead of my trip, Disney Cruise Line announced the booking dates for the Disney Wish. I had a few clients who had their booking date fall on this day. I had another agent covering for me who would help but I also planned to bring my laptop and try to take care of as much as I could myself.
So I went into the trip planning to be up early and ready to take care of the bookings and then go to Animal Kingdom. But as the trip evolved, I decided to just make today a “no parks” day. I was meeting a friend for dinner at Disney Springs anyway so I would just go to Disney Springs for the day.
I grabbed an early breakfast at the hotel and was online and ready for the booking window to start at 8 am. I took care of everything I needed to and even spent an hour or so going through emails, etc so it would be less overwhelming when I got home.
By noon, I was on the bus to Disney Springs. There are so many choices for lunch there but I went with a favorite of mine, D Luxe Burger. So this was my view for lunch and my burger:
I had the afternoon to mosey around the shops. The M&M Store is new since my last trip so I went in there. Cute special merchandise for the Disney location.
I also decided to go see an actual movie! For the first time in over a year! I purchased my ticket on the app to see Raya and the Last Dragon. I had already seen the movie on Disney+ but it was a good activity for this day and I was happy to get back into a theater.
I had only a short time after the movie to meet my friend at Cityworks for dinner. There are many restaurants in Disney Springs that I have not been to yet and this is one of them. They are known for all the beers they have so I chose a flight so I could taste a few and then ordered fish tacos for dinner. It was all good!
I got the bus back to the hotel and that was it for the day! It was relaxing and a good parks break.
