Day 5, Sunday, July 20th Water Park Day!!! We spent the morning and early afternoon at Typhoon Lagoon. This is a great water park. They have a new ride called the Crush ‘N Gusher. It is a 2 person tube ride that works like a rollercoaster. You go down these great drops and then the water shoots you back up a hill and so on. They have three different tracks and we rode all three. It was a blast! We hung out in the lazy river, swam in the wave pool, and went on some other slides.
After Typhoon Lagoon, we went back to the resort and ate some lunch. We cancelled our dinner reservations because we were eating such a late lunch and made reservations for tomorrow night. We decided to go back over to Animal Kingdom to ride Everest one more time, even if we had to wait in line. Well, we scored and found that they had a “single rider” line. When you get in that line, you virtually walk on to the ride. So, we rode Expedition Everest another 4 times in about 45 minutes! It is such a great coaster. Then, while I was paying in the gift shop, MJ decided to go and find us a frozen lemonade because it was so blasted hot! We got to be part of the “Year of a Million Dreams” with a “Magical Moment” that provided us with our frozen drinks FREE of charge. So, our stop at Animal Kingdom was certainly a great one! We headed over to Epcot to see Illuminations, but once we got there, we were just so tired and our feet were killing us, so we decided to go back to the resort and go swimming – a great way to end the day.
