It's been over 2.5 year since we had visited one of our favorite vacation spots. We decided to hit up Disney for Spring Break...masks and all. The reason we went even though the parks weren't fully functioning is because Sydney's college breaks will not line up with Jordyn and Bryce's breaks from here on out so vacation planning will get a little trickier from here on out.
I honestly haven't even finished looking at all the photos from our trip because they are pretty lame since we had masks on. Thankfully the masks rule was lifted for *photos only* while we were there so we were able to get few days of mask free photos.
The parks were at 35% capacity when we went so the crowds were pretty great. Attraction waits were not bad at all. With folks spaced 6 feet apart the lines looked way longer than they actually were. No character meet & greets, half the restaurants were closed, half the shops weren't open, no fireworks, no parades and several shows weren't running. Even with all of the closed attractions we still had a really great time. We were able to score last minute ressies at most of our favorite places to eat and we were able to ride everything we wanted more than once including Rise of the Resistance. We consider that a win!
It will probably be a while before we head back to WDW due to our schedules and honestly the cost to visit is so high we can't justify going on a visit each year. We do love it though and will continue to go, but probably not as often. Depending on how the first half of 2022 goes we may head out to Cali next summer and hit up Disneyland.
We were up super early for our drive down. We arrived around 12:30 so our room wasn't ready. We hoped out of the car, grabbed our Magic Bands and masks to rush over to Hollywood Studios in hopes of getting into the 1:00 virtual que for Rise of the Resistance. We got into the park by 12:50 and at right at 1:00 were able to snag a boarding group for RoR! We knocked out everything and then some before the park closed for the day so our first day, which was really only a half day was a success.
