I had an evening flight so I could get in a good part of the day at Hollywood Studios.
I was able to get into a boarding group for Rise of the Resistance at 7 am this morning. Whether I would be able to ride would be a question depending on the timing of the day.
I checked out of the room and dropped my bags at bell services. I then walked over to the Riviera Resort for a breakfast reservation at Topolino’s.
Took this picture on the Riviera on my walk over. It is a beautiful resort and I can’t wait to stay there in September.
This would be my second time having breakfast at Topolino’s. It has already become one of my favorites. It is a fixed price character meal. Similar to Hollywood and Vine, the characters right now come out for photos and to dance around. There are no autographs or photos with the characters at this time.
Your meal starts with a pastry basket and then you choose an entrée. I had the quiche the last time and that is what I wanted again. I ordered it and my server said “Ok, but I am going to bring you a waffle too. And I will bring you bacon because it’s vacation.” From reviews online, many people enjoy the sour cream waffle so I was happy to try that too.
The waffle was really good but I still would chose the quiche again. Love the roasted potatoes as well.
I was at a great table for pictures this time and all the characters posed nicely for me.
In lieu of autographs, they gave me this postcard with printed autographs on the back.
From the Riviera, I used the Skyliner to get to Studios. I love Tower of Terror but the wait times at been high on my previous days. When I walked into the park, it was a 20 minute wait so that was my first ride.
I caught the Pixar cavalcade which was fun.
I also did the Frozen Sing A Long. This is always a good spot for a sitting break in a cool theater. I always get a kick out of the full audience singing along, especially to Let It Go. Plus it snows in the theater… it’s just fun.
I knew I had to leave the park by 3 pm. I was watching the pace of the boarding groups for Rise of the Resistance. I had to be called by around 2 / 2:15 in order to make it in time. It was going to be tight but I thought I would make it, until the ride went down for a little over an hour. So that wasn’t going to happen.
I had a late lunch at Backlot Express. I had a pressed Cuban sandwich and a Wookie Cookie. The cookie was two oatmeal raisin cookies with vanilla cream in the middle. To go with the running theme.. the cream was too sweet for me but the cookies were really good.
I had just enough time to get in one more ride on Mickey’s Railway before I had to leave. It was time to say goodbye for now to Disney World.. but of course I will be back.
