Magic Kingdom Rope Drop Seven Dwarfs Mine Train to Tomorrowland – January 21 2016

We’ll head out to Magic Kingdom on the morning of Thursday January 21st. Maybe I can stop mentioning it now, but bag check remains more thorough than it had been prior to mid-December. It’s just past 8:30am and Disney has ten extra bag checkers in addition to the ones in operation closer to the monorail. There is no wait whatsoever. In the larger image, I count 14 additional security cast members. You may remember that Disney originally outsourced the extra security before bringing it all in-house a couple of weeks ago.

Epcot One Day Touring Plan With Soarin’ Closed in Action – January 18 2016

Today we’ll take a moment to do something no other Walt Disney World planning website in the world does……….actually execute a touring plan to see how it works. I like to go through Epcot’s 1-day plan on federal holidays because it usually means above average crowds and a higher number of visiting locals clogging up World Showcase.
