Default Here now at the Riviera

Moonlight Magic is tonight, and it is slightly raining. I wonder how we find out if the event will go on or not. It stormed earlier while I was napping, but now it is just drizzling.

So that was 3 snack credits per person? Not bad at all.

The only annoying thing about the games last year in DLUSA was that they only gave out small prizes no matter how many people were playing or if you got the ball in a large prize bucket.

Stayed at CCV and took bus to AK. Left resort at 6pm and CCV filled the bus. We still drove to Contemporary (I forgot we share busses) where another bus load of folks was told they would have to wait for the next bus. So BLT folks, plan accordingly. The cars coming in to park was long as well so i would leave by 5:30 pm.
It was busy!! Everyone was in Pandora. 40 min for Navi and 60 minutes for FOP.
My advice is arrive early and Safari first before park officially closes
Africa Safari
Africa Snack
Pizzafari Popcorn bucket
Pandora Navi
Pandora FOP
Pandora snack -Lotus Blossom or Cantene
Characters UP and DJ and Flame Tree BBQ
TTBAB or skip
Discovery Island Mickey Bar
Dino land games, dance party,characters (who is Clarice?) Dino land ran out of Mickey bars and fruit bars by 10:30pm so Discovery Island.
CCV had great characters in the lobby around noon and 1pm. Tigger, Eeyore, so if you can visit your lobby characters you can save time in the parks.
The weather was beautiful, and the event was very organized and better staffed. Also, lighted markers helped.
I didnt play the games. Dino land is kind of empty feeling with that big ride removed, but the little ones were enjoying the dance party, Tri-Spin, games and chsracters.

Yes, 3 snacks. The pretzel is the Mickey pretzel and I did not like the cheese, so I should have got the corn in Africa instead. I didnt check to see what FTBBQ had but it was a popular place as well.
