We spent our entire second day at Disney at Magic Kingdom. I had ordered 3 custom tie-dyed Mickey shirts for us to wear this day, and they were a huge hit. We got compliments on them all day long, and it made it so easy to spot each other in the crowds. Every single day we were on our trip, we were standing in line to catch the busses 15 minutes before they would be scheduled to arrive, and we were at the parks an hour before they opened. We were first to get in the parks and made a beeline to whatever attraction was on the agenda. It’s not for everybody to do that, but we wanted to maximize our time in the parks, and it worked great for us. I think we got more accomplished in the 3 hours after the park opened than any other time of the day because of the low crowd numbers.
We didn’t have any reservations this day, and we enjoyed lunch at Pecos Bill’s and dinner at Pinnochio’s restaurant because we were riding out a torrential downpour that thankfully only lasted about 30 minutes. The park closed at 7 that night because of the NIghts of Joy, and we were there until 7! We had practically no lines the whole day, and we were able to ride Big Thunder Mountain 2 times without even getting off. Jackson loved every single ride that we went on, and Big Thunder Mountain, Space Mountain and Splash Mountain were by far his favorites! He and Jeremy made the Teacups spin until we couldn’t go any faster, and he thought that was one of the “most funnest things ever!” The Monsters’s Inc Comedy show was a favorite for Jeremy’s, and Jackson and I both loved Peter Pan’s ride through Neverland. So pretty! Enjoy the pics.
Stay tuned for Day 3!
