Day 2 (Friday) MK:
We woke up around 8:00, ate some breakfast, and headed to MK. It was bright and sunny outside, but it was CHILLY! The temps were in the mid to upper 50’s…too cold for Florida! :eek: I was surprised to see that the Christmas tree was still up at MK, and the Main St decorations were still up too. It was nice to see because the last 2 times I went in January, the decorations had already been taken down. Of course, we had to head straight into Adventureland so that I could have my first ride of the trip be POTC…YAY! I love this ride. I don’t feel like I’m really at WDW until I see those grizzly pirates. (There was no wait by the way)
Anywho…after riding with the pirates, we trekked over to Splash, and took a ride in honor of dhoughton and honeybear! Again, no wait! DFJ sat in front, and DH and I were in the 2nd row. I thought…”ok, good, I’m in the 2nd row, I won’t get too wet…” HA! My lovely friend decides to duck her head down as soon as we get to the bottom of the briar patch…sooooo….this means that instead of hitting her in the face, the water flies over the top of her, and smacks right into my face. My shirt was completely dry, but my hair looked like a drowned rat!!! It was like someone threw a bucket of water directly in my face…Ah well!
Next we went next door and took a ride on BTMRR. (This one had about a 15 minute wait.) It was fun as usual, except for the annoying Brazilian student group who insisted on chanting and singing the ENTIRE way through the line!!! How annoying!! As if that weren’t enough, when we were exiting the ride, one of the girls that was in the group practically shoved me over trying to catch up to the rest of the group. Apparently, it was too hard to say excuse me. :nonono2:
After that, we decided it was CHURRO TIME!!! YEEEEHAAA! :happy: Ok, I’ll control myself now…I just love those little Churros! After the snack break we went over to HM where we only had to wait a few minutes before we moved our wretched bodies into the dead center of the room. Then it was on to the Doombuggies, and some how, all 3 of us were able to squeeeeeeeeeeze into one doombuggy…we looked like a can of sardines!
We then had to pay a visit to the evil dolls since I hadn’t seen them since the refurbishment, and DH has never been…he wasn’t impressed…and I must say, I didn’t notice much of a difference except for the entrance. The dolls are still evil, and always will be.
We got hungry again, and decided to have lunch at Cosmic Ray’s. DH and I had the BBQ pulled pork, and DFJ had a veggie burger. Considering it was fast food, it was pretty good!
We then got FPs for Space Mt because the wait time was 1 hour…blah! To waste some time, we took a ride on the PeopleMover…very relaxing as usual. Tried to ride the Indy Speedway, but it was a 30 minute wait, and we didn’t feel like waiting, so we went to Main St to do some browsing in the shops.
We then took the Monorail over to Epcot with the intention of coming back to the MK to ride Space Mt with our FPs. By the time we got to Epcot, we were all really tired, and decided to call it an early day, and head out around 3:00. I know what you’re thinking…3:00??? In our defense, DFJ got us into the park for free, so we weren’t technically wasting any money. Besides…several more days of fun were ahead of us…
On the way back to DFJ’s apartment, we stopped at the grocery store to get some food for the week. For dinner, we ordered some Chinese, and after that we watched the 40 Year Old Virgin…pretty funny, but I was expecting a bit more.
Tomorrow is Epcot…coming soon!
