Time Entering Park: 7:48 AM
We arrived with plenty of time to spare before the gates opened. This was a far improvement from our first Ultimate Tour where, thanks to me, we barely arrived in time for the Opening Show. Nonetheless, we parked ourselves at the front of the line closest to the Magic Band Readers and counted down the minutes until opening, hoping that they would let us in before 8:00 AM. While there, we were greeted by Fran, a recipient of the coveted Legacy Pin awarded to Cast Members for constantly and consistently bringing the Disney dream to the forefront and always honoring it. Meeting Fran was an honor, but we had to mentally prepare for the day ahead of us.
At 7:48 AM, we were on our feet and flying to our first Core Attraction of the day.
