Our plan on this day was to get to the bus stop earlyyyy. Mission accomplished, and we were off the bus at 7:15 a.m. for an 8:00 a.m. opening. Here you can see the crowd level at this point.
Since I don’t ride Avatar: Flight of Passage, I went directly to Na’vi River Journey by myself. I was maybe 10-15 people deep in line at 7:30 a.m. They didn’t open the ride until 7:48 a.m.
Everyone else in our party went to Flight of Passage and were on and off the ride before 8:00 a.m.
While I was waiting for them to get off of the ride, I headed to Pongu Pongu Lounge to get a refreshing Night Blossom beverage.
This drink gets a 10/10 in our family! The flavors are wonderful, and it’s so refreshing on a hot day. I don’t love boba balls, by my daughter does! Also, this stand has some quick options for breakfast, but we did not try any of them.
Next we headed for the Kiliminjaro Safari. We were in line at 8:30 a.m. with a 30 minute posted wait time. Actual wait time was 23 minutes.
After exiting the Safari, we checked out Zuri Sweets Shop, which has some amazing desserts at the counter. Here are just the cupcakes!
We took a bathroom and snack break here, sitting in Harambe Market area. My daughters also took this time to take some photos with amazing back drops.
Next we went to Kali River Rapids. It was 9:50 a.m. with a 15 minute wait posted. After that, we headed to Expedition Everest which also had a 15 minute wait posted. We also watched It’s Tough to be a Bug and the Winged Encounters bird show.
We had dining reservations for lunch at Yak & Yeti and went there next. See my next post for a full review of one of our favorite places to eat!
The last thing we did was watch the Festival of the Lion King, which had just started showing!
It was so good to finally welcome this show back. You could tell the cast was so happy to perform again! Although it is altered slightly, it was still amazing!
After this show, we shopped and headed back to the resort to swim and rest.
