Today we got up later than yesterday because my parents were convinced they would not let you into the parking lot early :roll: They dropped me and my sisters off and we began our day at the Magic Kingdom.

We got to the TTC around 8:30 and took the monorail to the park. They were holding everyone in front of the gate, and held that thing where the characters ride in on the rail road. It was allright but I wanted to get in as quickly as possible. When they did open the gates, we power walked to the bridge where there was a rope. :x At 9am, they dropped the rope and EVERYONE went to Space Mountain. I'm serious, no one went to any other attraction...ive never seen that at MK before. Luckily we were in the front of the crowd so the wait was minimal for Space Mountain.

Space Mountain - Very fun. It was Naomi's first time and first roller coaster and she loved it. It was lots of fun.

Alien Encounter - No one went to the this attraction all day! :shock: Don't believe me? Look at this picture which was taken at 4:30 in the afternoon. There was never a line EVER during the day. I was really in shock.

Winnie the Pooh - Hey, everyone can enjoy this attraction.....even the manly guys such as myself. :D

Peter Pan - I haven't been on this ride in a long time. It's great, especially the background music.

Haunted Mansion - There is never a line for this attraction in the morning. this still a fun attraction. The attention to detail is wonderful.

Splash Mountain - The only problem is it was still kind of chilly in the morning so the tons of water(we sat front row) was a bit much. Still fun tho.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad - We Fastpassed this and it was worth it. The line here is always forever.

Pirates of the Caribbean - I had the longest wait ever for this...20-25 minutes! Usually its a quick line but the line was out to the plaza. Yowzers!

Swiss Family Robinson Tree House - Another attraction I havent done in a while. Moved quickly and there was a nice breeze.

Jungle Cruise - We had a great skipper and in my opinion a good skipper makes the cruise.

Enchanted Tiki Birds - Wholesome fun and lots of sitting equals good.

Lunch - We ate at the Plaza Plavilion which is still in my opinion the best counter service in Magic Kingdom. Good value, never alot of people.

Buzz Lightyear - I got like 2 points and Naomi got over 100,000. This ride is rigged. :)

Astro Orbitor - Okay, we went to go do this. But when it was our turn, this family of 5 took single rides in each orbitor so i couldnt get one. So I went back and waited for next series. When the next series came the CM yelled at me like I was trying to get 2 rides. I told her what happened and she was like "Well you'll have to wait". I just gave up. They really need to regulate things better.

TTA - Relaxing. Nuff said.

We ate dinner at Tony's Town Square Restaurant. I never ate there before and the food was good...expensive but good. Also, I think the restaurant has a policy of if the food doesn't weigh 20 lbs and can't kill someone with it, they dont make it :cry: My meatball was the size of a grapefruit and weighed more. Emily got eggplant parmesian and it was the size of a brick.

I also must have gone to every store in the Magic Kingdom for gifts. I've never been to alot of them so it was fun. I've also noticed Daisy Duck has gotten the shaft in terms of merchandising. One of my friends likes her so I decided to get alot of Daisy stuff. I could only find a Daisy Duck doll and stickers and a picture frame with Daisy & Minney.

Anywho, I had a great time! Tomorrow is a day off and Thursday is MGM :( :!:

I think Alien Encounter has lost its luster and that Stitch rehab that is rumored could be very helpful to make that attraction a big draw again. After all that space is prime real estate in Tommorrowland. I haven't rode the Pooh attraction since Mr. Toad was there. I guess i'm still bitter over the whole thing. :? Anyway, glad to hear all is going well with your trip, Matt. Keep us updated, these reports are great. :)

P.S. I suck at the Buzz Lightyear ride too, that ride IS rigged. :cry:
