Day 9 and we were off to Hollywood Studios to ride Disney Pete’s new favourite Alien Swirling Saucers. Our party would split in the afternoon for Mrs Modernlifeisgood.com to have a shopping trip at Disney Springs. However, the remaining members would continue to visit Three Parks before dinner at The Wave.
Park Hopping is a great way to provide a little variation in your day. Start your day in 1 Park & then move to another when you fancy a change. One of the great advantages of Fastpass+ is once your initial selections are used you can grab a pass at another park.
Hollywood Studios still has a lack of attractions & it became obvious that we had dedicated too much time to the park in our initial plans for this vacation. Whilst Toy Story Land is a welcome addition it only consists of 2 fairly short new attractions.
Having exhausted Hollywood Studios we grabbed our next Fastpass at Epcot. A quick bus ride and we were on Test Track. After a quick lunch our next attraction was Soarin. We managed to grab a Fastpass for Soarin whilst we were still in the queue for Test Track. As soon as you enter the Fastpass line you should attempt to book your next Fastpass. Our guide to Fastpass+ has plenty of tips to maximise use of this service.
After Soarin we were off to The Magic Kingdom grabbing last minute Fastpass reservations for Jungle Cruise, Magic Carpets & Pirates of the Caribbean.
Overall we had a great day in the parks maximising our Fastpass Reservations. I think this was the first time I had ever visited 3 parks in one day and Park Hopping certainly can be fun.
Dinner was at The Wave in the Contemporary Resorts. The Wave is a top restaurant and in my opinion is a must-do reservation if you are on the Disney Dining Plan. The restaurant is not a signature location but serves much better food than many signature restaurants within the Theme Parks. When using the Dining Plan consider exploring dining options at the resorts. Some of the best Disney Dining can be found in the resorts.
Tomorrow is our last day at Walt Disney World and we are off to The Magic Kingdom.
