I always feel awkward taking outfit photos at theme parks so I try to find areas where there aren't many people. Usually they are some boring spot but this time I went to Storybook Circus and found this really fun brick wall! Now that I'm a Disney passholder (until December 9th this year) I need to go as many times as possible so I'm sure I'll find tons of out of the way photo spots!

This was our only day at Magic Kingdom and my boyfriend hadn't been since he was 3 years old so I made it my mission to get him on all the good rides. The only one we missed was Peter Pan. We technically would have had time but I didn't want us to miss the start of the fireworks. We did Pirates of the Caribbean, Big Thunder Mountain, The Haunted Mansion, It's A Small World, The Little Mermaid, Seven Dwarves Mine Train, Jungle Cruise, Aladdin's Magic Carpets, Space Mountain,  Mickey's PhilharMagic, Prince Charming's Carousel, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Mad Tea Party, and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. PHEW! We also had lunch at Be Our Guest and dinner at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe, two of my favorites! AND since I'm a passholder I get all the free professional picture downloads I want so we made sure to stop whenever we saw a photographer.

Our last day was a crazy day! We had flights at 8 and 8:30 so we knew we had to leave Animal Kingdom by 4 and we had a lot to get through. We wanted to ride both of the new Pandora rides and knew we would probably have to wait in a super long lines; they are usually around 2 or 3 hours, OR MORE! We sort of cheated the system and got on both without waiting long at all. (I'll share that story below)

Apart from exploring Pandora, we also went on the safari, my favorite, and Expedition Everest. For lunch we tried out Satu'li Canteen, the new restaurant in Pandora. I had a kid's Chopped Wood-Grilled Chicken Bowl, sooo good!

Please excuse the crowded backgrounds in these photos, I wanted the fun waterfall in the back and this isn't exactly the emptiest part of the park! Ha ha.

Navigating Pandora

Fast Passes

You can use fast passes on rides in Pandora BUT since the park is so new you are only allowed to use it on one ride in your first 3 fast passes. We kind of beat the system on our trip. Here's how. I bought my sister's tickets a couple months before our trip (I was still waiting to decide on an annual pass) and when I did that I booked fast passes with her tickets with the plan to add myself and my friend on once we got our tickets.

I was able to snag a 9:15am for Na'vi River Journey but not Flight of Passage. Once I got my ticket I tried to add myself and we were unable to do that because too many people had fast passes. We kept my sister on it just in case and on that morning we headed to the ride and explained that we were in a group and were supposed to ride together and the man running the fast pass line generously let us all go on. One ride down!

After that we had to do 2 more fast passes before we would be able to get one for Flight of Passage because you can't do both as part of your first 3. So we used them on a ride in Dino-Land and then for the Nemo show (but we didn't actually watch the show, we just tapped our magic bands to use the fast pass and left the line because we didn't have an hour to waste on the show. After that we miraculously got fast passes for Flight of Passage at 1:15! We must have gotten very lucky and caught them adding new ones at the right time.

Flight of Passage was AMAZING! I won't spoil it for those of you that want to be surprised when riding it but I will say there is no other ride like it. The experience is so cool and I would definitely wait in a long line to ride it again! Maybe not 3 hours, but I could do 2. (I have a bad back so standing in long lines is pretty grueling after a while.)

While in Florida my friends and I always try to go to Disney, but we also hate paying for tickets because they're so expensive. Luckily we have some friends that work there and are able to get a few tickets per year for family and friends. We had two of those tickets this trip and split the cost of a regular ticket between us. Much more manageable than the $149 it would have cost each!

Also, while at Disney Springs on our first evening in Orlando I picked up an adorable Mickey sweatshirt from Uniqlo! It was a bit of a splurge at $30 but it's so soft inside and the Mickey is fuzzy! I only needed to wear it for a short while because it was a pretty warm day, even with a couple hours of rain.
