I love Magic Kingdom! It’s such a pretty park, and what little girl doesn’t dream of a prince and a castle all her own? To start our day, we headed to the Contemporary Resort, via monorail, for breakfast at Chef Mickey’s. I love Chef Mickey’s, too. They have a yummy buffet, and while you eat Mickey and his friends stop at your table to pose for photos. Then the music starts, and everyone grabs their napkin and twirls it. It’s tons of fun.
Normally, after breakfast we would walk over to the Magic Kingdom. It’s a nice, short walk down a paved path. This year, though, my mom wanted to ride the monorail. The only problem is, it only goes one way, so we had to ride the whole line, stopping at several resorts, before we ended up in Magic Kingdom. It’s a nice ride, though, and we had good company in our car.
Magic Kingdom is undergoing some renovations right now. They are expanding the Fantasy Land area, and I can’t wait to see it. We got right into the swing of things with the Street Party, then we ducked into one of the shops on Main Street to listen to a barbershop quartet sing. Walker got soaked on a flume ride, we snacked on pineapple Dole whip, we enjoyed Mickey’s Philharmagic movie in 3D, and we got some great photos of Cinderella’s castle. Pretty soon it was time for a rest, so we hopped the train that circles the park and rode it around a couple times. I love the little train. Heck, I love pretty much everything in the Magic Kingdom, except the crowds and the prices.
Right after we got off the train, however, the sky opened up and it poured. And poured, and poured. It didn’t stop. We donned plastic ponchos and made the best of it, but before too long an announcement was made that the parade was cancelled, then the fireworks were cancelled, too. We called it a day and went to Downtown Disney for Ghiradelli chocolate sundaes, shopping at the World of Disney store, and dinner at the Earl of Sandwich. On our way back to the car I stopped at Baby Cakes for sugarless, flourless cupcakes to take back to the house. Who knew gluten free could taste so dang good?
