next stop was the magic kingdom… we drove over there just as it was getting dark. i knew as soon as we pulled into the last section of the parking lot that it was going to be packed. being as it was almost 7pm i was amazed at how many people were pulling in behind us. i realized this morning… columbus day weekend!
we got the tram then rode the monorail to the magic kingdom. when we got in, we bee lined it to pecos bills to grab a bite to eat (i apparently didn’t pack enough food). while we were eating the spectro magic parade was going by. we’re going next weekend and was hoping the girls wouldn’t notice as i wanted them to see it and have that “first time” excitement when we’re with my aunt and uncle (we didn’t see it in september and rose last saw it last year so she didn’t really remember it). we made it about halfway through when they started begging to see it. so we took them out and watched from a distance.
after the parade we went towards splash mountain and got stuck in a huge mass of people. by the time we got there, it was a 30 min wait. t went on while we played at the laughing place. while we were there, wishes was going on. i could see a little bit of it. rose is scared of the noise so she was distracted and i didn’t want to drag her out to see them in the crowd. i kept entertained by this older lady and her little grandson. she jumped everytime there was a loud one. i was trying to remember cpr in case…
t got of the ride just as wishes finished (said it was sooooo cool to see from splash mountain) and i hopped on! front row!!! i got pretty wet.
we then went to btmrr but we were tired and the wait was 30 mins. we decided to skip it to go one rides with the girls.
so we head over to fantasyland and ride the carousel. we manuevered our way around so they wouldn’t ask for the dumbos or to play in pooh’s playground (we’re so bad). we went on the tta and i noticed the new soundtrack. i was so bummed!!! we did see part of the second spectromagic from the tta. that was pretty cool!!! after that, we went to the noodle station to use the bathroom. dh forgot that he promised rose she could play with the big globe with the water so we had to go all the way back for that lol! we left at about 11:45pm!!! drove the 2.5 hours home and slept in on sunday!!!
next weekend we are doing magic kingdom and epcot and staying at all star music!!! i am already excited!!!
