Packing It All In

Today we really packed it all in and I feel that we have really "done" Magic Kingdom. If we went home right now, I'd be fine with it. Here's how the day went...
  1. Jungle Cruise- still cheesy

  2. Aladdin's Magic Carpet- just like Dumbo

  3. Pirates of the Carribbean- little scary with skeletons, but not bad

  4. Swiss Family Robinson- kept asking where the family was (loves that movie now!)

  5. Country Bear Jamboree- terrible and Cavett wasn't that interested, but we got to cool off
  6. Train Ride to Toon Town

  7. Several character greetings- Robin Hood, Friar Tuck, Jimney Cricket, Max, Racoon from Poccahontas, Mr. Smee, Aristocats, Dopey

  8. Goofy's Barnstormer Roller Coaster- 30 second ride, rode 2X because line was so short
  9. Speedway

  10. Tea Cups

  11. Winnie the Pooh

  12. 3D Philharmagic

  13. Snow White

  14. Ate lunch at Pinnochio's Pizza

  15. Peter Pan- my favorite ride in Fantasy Land

  16. It's a Small World- 272 little dolls singing

  17. Ice Cream

  18. 3:00 Parade

  19. Nap
  20. Dad joined us back at aTommorow Land for Buzz Lightyear for the 3rd and 4th trip

  21. I went to Stich's Escape- Walt would definitely NOT approve. Sensory experience (smells, sprays, etc.) and I felt VERY violated. I thought it was a ride. Do not go to this...EVER.

  22. Astro Orbiter- like Dumbo, but fast and higher

  23. Monorail to Contemporary

  24. Dinner at Chef Mickey's with Micky, Minnie, Pluto, Donald and Goofy at 9:15

    Funniest part of the day was at dinner. Cavett finally got some good vegetables. We kept getting him to eat them by telling him that as soon as he ate a bite, a character would come over. He put some broccoli in his mouth just as Donald came over. But, Cavett wouldn't hug him or say hi until his mouth was empty. Donald had some funny moves waiting on Cavett, but hey, at least we are polite.

I highly recommend having a character meal that is toward closing. We were one of the last ones out of the restaurant, so we got lots of attention and it wasn't as crazy.

What a brave, brave little man. wow! Looked scary to me!
I need to be more liek you Jennifer, I don't know that I would have had the guts to take Isabela on that ride, even knowing in my heart that I needed to.

I am sure Cavett cherishes that in you!

Cavett didn't go on that ride. He was too short and I went alone, while they rode Buzz again.
