Today we headed out of our KOA campground nice and early to try to check in at Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground early. We really weren't supposed to be able to check in until sometime after 1pm, but we wanted to try to go to one of the parks today after checking in. We got there around 10:30am and they didn't have any sites clean and ready to go yet. I gave them my cell phone number so that they would text me when the site was ready and we went to wait in a lot they had. We were contemplating heading to the park and then coming back to set up our site and then heading back to the park, but we figured it wasn't going to take to long to get our site since checkout time was 11am. Since we had Nash with us we figured it would be best to wait instead of having to run the generator while we were gone for air conditioning.
We got the text message at 11:45am telling us which site was ours

Today we picked to go to Epcot. Epcot closed the earliest out of all the parks at 9pm so we decided to book the Hoop Dee Doo Revue dinner/show for 9:30pm. Since we missed some rides yesterday we got to Epcot right when the park opened and had a plan for our fast passes. The new ride at Epcot is Soarin' which we actually rode in Disneyland, CA. It was a mad dash to get to it for fast passes and we were able to get ours. We then headed out from there and did the Test Track ride and Mission Space before heading back for Soarin'. Jared was pretty excited that Captain EO 3D (it is with Michael Jackson in it and is totally 80s) was playing and he was shocked that I had never seen it
We decided that since beer and wine was included in our dinner show we would start drinking in Epcot. So we started our drinking day right and we got some margaritas. We had some more beers in other countries and basically just walked through all the countries checking them out. By the time we were done the countries we were pretty tired so we figured we would head home to let Nash our for a while and relax before our show at 9:30pm.
The Hoop Dee Doo Revue was a really good time. The dinner was all you could eat and there was tons of food and the show was really fun. There was tons of singing and jokes throughout the night. The members of the show come down and interact with the crowd throughout the entire show and it was definitely a good time.

Today the Magic Kingdom was open early at 8am and late until 1am
One of the new shows that we really enjoyed was in Tomorrowland, Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor. It was an interactive show with the characters from Monsters, Inc. up on the screen basically doing a comedy show. They must of had people that were able to do the voices in the background some watching the audience over cameras or something. They were making fun of people in the audience and would have a conversation with some of them. It was a really great show. When we walked in the immediately put Jared and I on screen to have a dance. I forget exactly what they called Jared but they were making fun of how hairy he was. It was great.
We were able to do most of the rides before we went home for our nap and dinner
We unfortunately were not able to find a Donald Duck hat for Jared the entire time that we were there. Jared is very upset. I told him to write a strongly worded letter to Disney. I don't think he is going to do it though. We did find the hat I wanted which was the Happy St. Patrick's Day Mouse Ears. Everywhere I went in them I was asked by so many people where I got them from. They were scarce, but I am so excited I got it.

Today was our last day in the Fort Wilderness campground. We had to check out by 11am, so we slept in and then packed up and headed out. We had a great time in Disney, but were go go going all week so it was really nice to sleep in today.
