  • WDW 9/15-9/16 Weekend Trip Report

    So we decided to take a quick weekend trip to see the newly re-opened Haunted Mansion. We got a room for one night in one of the new DVC studios at AKL. Our room wasn't ready when we got there so we checked our bags and took some pics of the lobby.







    Off to Epcot!



    After grabbing fast passes for Soarin' we rode Living with the Land, grabbed some lunch and headed over to Journey into Imagination!





    Then onto The Seas with Nemo and Friends...



    A quick stop into Club Cool for some refreshment...



    On our way over to Mexico for a quick boat ride with the Three Caballeros I saw this and though of Phonedave...



    Went back to AKL and headed down for some animal viewing and the nightly story by the fire pit.









    After he told his story, we all paraded through the lobby to Zawadi Marketplace to pick up instruments and sing a song he was teaching us.



    The girls get into the fun with some shakers...






    We headed back to the room for a room service pizza and an early night so we would be all rested for our day at MK.



    I really loved the mirror in the room, it lights up.



    We arrived at MK and met up with Summer and her daughter. Had to stop by the Kodak camera center to pick up a video tape so my husband could tape all the new glory of the Haunted Mansion and went in the back for a few photo ops.





    We grabbed fast passes for Peter Pan's Flight for later and then headed for the main destination of out trip. The Haunted Mansion!

    Sooooooo glad they didn't get rid of this!


    Madame Leota


    Hitchhikers!


    Then we did some Fantasyland rides and Goofy's Barstormer.









    We headed off to Pinocchio's Village Haus for some lunch.

    It's eating her head!!!!!!



    A quick trip to Ariel's grotto...




    After another ride on Haunted Mansion we headed to Adventureland for a ride on POTC and The Magic Carpets of Aladdin.
    On our way to Tomorrowland, I (Summer bless me) see the sign for the new Jack Sparrow meet and greet. The queue line for this is very nicely themed!





    After a couple of rides on TTA, and a quick farewell to VMK Central we bid goodbye to Summer and made our way through the rain back to the bus stop to get our car from AKL.
    I love how even the soda machines are themed!


    Quick stop at the restrooms in the AKL lobby...even those are themed with female and male tribal masks!




    We stopped in DTD to fill up the car where we saw this rainbow. A great way to end the weekend!

          Great TR!!!
          That AK lodge looks pretty interesting.
          Good morning, son
          In twenty years from now
          Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
          And I can tell you 'bout today
          And how I picked you up and everything changed
          It was pain
          Sunny days and rain
          I knew you'd feel the same things...

            LOL I bought it for my Halloween costume. I'm not one to wear the goofy hats on a regular basis TD.

            But now I'm curious like a kitten, what's so nice about the stitch hats at TDR?

                Is the hat different at TDR?

                I love AKL! I would almost chance to say it is my favorite resort....It has such a calming affect on me....I don't know if it is the animals or the darkenss of the decor or what but I am always at ease at that resort. It is also removed from the hustle and bustle....so quiet.

                    I think TDLFAN's response will be something like:

                    "Because it's from TDR, so it's automatically better".

                    Great TR EQR.

                      :lol:

                      I am so pitiful .... Left side of the bridge as you head over towards Mexico. I know where that one is without even looking it up.

                      It's really sad. I know, but that is my favorite WDW survey marker. Many of them are in curbs out in the parking lots or bus stops, or more out of the way, but this one is right out there in the open.

                      Lord I need a life :blush:

                              I couldn't help but think of you when I saw it!:lol: I even said to my husband, I'm taking a picture of this just for Phonedave. I think it is the same one you are thinking about....it is right in front of the old Odyssey restaurant as you are walking into World Showcase by passing the restrooms and baby care center. And I even noticed one in Toontown in front of Minnie's house on the curb, but didn't get a pic of it.
