Day forty eight
After the disappointment that was EPCOT, T & I were really hoping that the Magic Kingdom would make up for two days worth of tickets, in both time wasted yesterday and money spent going to waste time there.
We started our morning normally, although there wasn’t much spring in our step as we were both preparing ourselves for a let down and were trying to prolongue the blow. My oats and T’s french toast is becoming a staple in our diets recently, as well as very bad percolated coffee that tastes suspiciously like an ashtray. Breakfast had, we got on the free park shuttle bus and off to the park we were.
Upon arriving the first thing I noticed was that the front of the park was already in the Halloween decorations, considering it’s only just August and Halloween isn’t until October, it seems fairly premature. This was until I saw a big Jack Skellington (The Nightmare Before Christmas) in the middle of the main square, then my love of that movie kicked in and I decided they could have Halloween all year round with no detriment to my enjoyment.
By this stage T & I were beginning to see that today wasn’t going to be a let down and whilst he was putting suncream on his precious albino skin, I went happily exploring in a shop close by. Before we even came on our holiday I had my heart set on getting a Minnie Mouse hat, you know, red spots with the mouse ears and before now we haven’t been able to find the exact one I wanted, but thanks to The Magic Kingdom I was not able to find, but at T’s insistence, buy said hat and got to have an entire today running around like a child again. Although I probably looked more like an idiot than a child to others.
We walked up the main street towards the castle, got the expected 300 (give or take) photos of us with the castle and it’s surroundings, then headed off to go on some rides.
I have never actually told what happens on any rides in any of these posts because I think not knowing what is coming is far more fun. My advice would be, just go on them all, every ride, every show, every parade. We were there for 12 hours and my only complaint would be that I walked around for 12 hours and my feet feel like their going to fall off.
Disney really have captured magic in this wonderful park. If I could go back in time, I definitely would have spent two days here instead of one. In my opinion, which T shares, The Magic Kingdom made up for the day before, there was never a time in here where we didn’t have a smile on our faces.
I also managed to wear my hat all day!
Unti next time,
