The Magic Kingdom


Today is a day to recover. We spent the entire day yesterday at the Magic Kingdom. This means arriving in time for the park to open at 9am, quick photo on Main Street, then off to the right to do Buzz Lightyear, then Space Mountain. Then off to the speedway for a race! Then a lot of the younger rides, like Peter Pan, It’s a Small World (yes, still ringing in my head!), Snow White’s scary adventures, and so on. Then a snack while watching Wishes Do Come True routine. How about the Haunted Mansion? Sure. At some point we had lunch, and then some of the bigger rides, like Splash Mountain and Big Mountain Railroad. Then Mickey’s Philharmonic for a chance to sit and do the 4D experience. We eventually made it to the Tiki Room and Swiss Family Robinson Tree House, as well as the Jungle River Cruise. We wen to Monster’s Inc. Laugh Floor, repeated a few of the kids’ favorite rides and tried a few in the younger section, like Barnstorming. We had dinner and hit the carousel for a photo op and then off to reserve a spot for the parade and fireworks. The parade came through, Tinker Bell did her thing, and the fireworks were quite good. By 9pm there is a mad rush to get back to the monorail or ferry! That was a 12 hour day. The good news was that we had reasonable lines – nothing longer than 2o minutes, which is almost unheard of at the Magic Kingdom.
