We got through the gate around 7:15 a.m. Not a difficult task for some, but for us, nothing short of monumental. You can see from some of the pics that the place looks empty. That didn’t last long. But for now, it was time to take advantage of the Magic Morning.
In the span of two hours we rode:
Space Mountain (which is where we ran into our friends)
After that, we coaxed our sons to go on Splash Mountain. It was early and not too warm so they were less than enthused. I assured them that it’s not like Grizzly River Run (just like the Kali river rapids) and I rarely get too wet.
Due to logistics and just plain bad luck, My DS (15) was in the front followed by me then my friend followed by his sons. My DW and DD were all the way in the back.
Well, to make a long story short, my forecast wasn’t too accurate. I was completely soaked even before we got to the big drop. In fact, I didn’t even duck. I thought, “what’s the point?!!”
So the three of us in the front got it good, and my DS was not pleased but me and my buddy got a good laugh out of it.
After that, It was Thunder Mountain RR. By that time, the crowds were here. So we decided to get something to eat.
