Day 2 - 8/21/03
First # 4 Switching Resorts
Mickey got us up at 6:30am. By 7am I called Baggage to come get our bags and to arrange to have them sent to the Polynesian. We stayed and made shore them all got taken from the room. We had 6 bags. The CM who picked them up did not give us a baggage claim ticket. I figured since we were switching Resorts we didn’t need it. We got the first bus to the Magic Kingdom and hopped the Monorail to the Poly.
First #5 Staying at the Polynesian
There was no wait a Check in, we had a new CM named Lawrence. He was earning his ears. We are patient folk so when he had to go ask a question we just waited. While he was away another CM started talking to us. I mentioned that we were celebrating Sue’s birthday. He walked over looked at Lawrence’s screen the back to his station he made a phone call asked Sue her name then after a minuet or 2 he called her over moved the phone near her and pushed the speaker phone button. Goofy came on and sang her Happy Birthday. Lawrence came back and the rest of check in when smoothly. As we knew our room would not be ready till 3pm. We then went to the Disney Cruise Line desk and checked in there. We let them know that only our luggage would be traveling to the Port with them. We haired a Town car to take us.
Then to Capt. Cook’s for breakfast and a short walk to the TTC to take the Monorail to Epcot. My favorite hobbie at WDW. Sue at the Poly
I thought we hadn’t done this before but while we riding, I kind of remembered doing it. I love the view and Mission Space was very impressive from the Monorail. I wanted to do Spaceship Earth first but the wait was too long and I knew Sue want to see Figment. So that’s were we headed. On the way I tried calling Joe (Elliot’s Dragon) but his phone was off. I figured he was on a ride some where so I left a message. I really liked Journey Into Imagination, it’s almost as good as the original. We look through the shop and decided we wanted to do it again, But it had broke down. So off to the World Show case. We looked through the United Kingdom shops, then to catch a boat to Disney’s MGM Studio’s.
By time we got to Disney Studio’s we were hungry so we went to 50’s Prime Time. We had no problem getting in without a PS. Sue got a salad and fries, I got the Golden Fried Chicken. For Desert Sue got the Caramel Sunday, I got the S’Mores. After refueling we went to watch the Muppets 3D (my favorite). Looked in the shop and wanted to look in the Christmas shop but it was closed. It was getting to be around 2 so we started walking to the bus stop stopping in shops along the way. We got to the Poly around 3pm Lawrence helped us again and gave us our room. Our room was in Rarotonga 1807. The first floor about half way down the hall, garden view (?). I was just glad it wasn’t the parking lot. We went to get our bags so the CM could show us to our room. He asked how many bags and we told him 6. He told us they only had 5 bags for us. He then took us to the bag room. Sue had put her sugar tester in her carryon so we would have to worry about it in the parks. She didn’t have room for it in her camera case. My first thought was oh no her tester is lost. Me and Kirmit
We got back there and I noticed the bag missing was the garment bag. Whew!! I told him they didn’t give us and tags and what the bag looked like. I had also tied a red ribbon on the handle to all our checked bags. I think that helped. He apologized a lot and told us they would find the bag and his supervisor would get on it right away. We thanked him and he took us to our room.
First # 6 finding a surprise in our room
As soon as we entered I saw it on the table. Balloons, hats, blow ticklers and a cake with candles. WOW!! I had heard of this happening but this doesn’t happen to us!! Sue in her Brithday hat Her cake
We look around our room I tried calling Joe again and it started to rain. Not a drizzle but a down pour. So we waited it out and had some cake. We then headed back out back to Disney Studio’s. As I got off the bus I felt my phone vibrate. I had a message from Joe so I called him back right then. Yes! He answered. He was at Hollywood and Vine and we were at the Security tables. Sue and I made a beeline to the Restaurant. Joe was all ready inside. I didn’t know what to do I didn’t think they would let me in so we stood out side for a minuet.
I didn’t have to wait long Joe had seen me and came out. We finally meet face to face. For anyone who hasn’t meet Joe in person you should. He is one of the nicest guys I have ever meet and I glad to call him my Friend. We talked very briefly so he could eat and Sue and I went shopping. I found 2 shirts at the Villains shop and we got mom one of those new charm bracelets. It’s kind of a Disney mother’s bracelet. We put Minnie and Tinkerbell on it for her, Eeyor for Sue, Ariel for my brother and Mickey for me.
It was almost time for our PS at Hollywood and Vine. We were waiting for the CM to put the charms on for us, so I ran ahead to put our names in. As I was crossing the street I saw a woman with 2 pins on that I thought was a Passporter pin and a Guest of honor pin. I also thought I saw Don so I yelled out his name but no answer. I guess it wasn’t him. I put our names in and sat and waited for Sue. Then we got seated. It was the Fantsmic Dinner Package. I did really care for dinner there but I did get a light up Ice Cube.
First # 7 Fantasmic
We went to do the Great Movie Ride before the show. I like this one but it is getting old. I didn’t notice anything new. Then to see Fantasmic. It started to drizzle and continued for the rest of the night. We were seated it Ursula. I tried to find Joe but didn’t see him. I want to know why is it when a crowed gets together they have to do the wave? They must have done it for an hour straight. I loved the show and want to see again. Right after the show we headed back to the Poly from some sleep. On the bus back I saw a Passporter Pouch, It was Suflay. She doesn’t post often but did recognize my name. She got pushed to the back so we didn’t get a chance to talk. Sorry. We had to get up early so I called Mickey to wake us up at 6:30am.
Stay tuned for the 3 hour tour.
