We conquered the Magic Kingdom in 5 hours! Mostly thanks to rain thinning out the crowds, and because we’re already familiar with most of the rides from Disneyland.
I have to say, California has better versions of some rides, like Pirates of the Caribbean…
…but Florida has got it going ON with the castle!
Even though I stood in front of this thing for days while shooting a commercial almost a decade ago, it still takes my breath away.
We arrived at the park around 5. All I’d eaten all day was a Mickey Ice Cream bar, so I was starving!
Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe is located in Tomorrowland, and has three fast food options:
Abe went for Bay 2, I went with #3…both of us ordered the vegetarian options.
The best part about this place was their toppings bar, especially the cooked onions and mushrooms!
Abe piled a patty (they use Gardenburger)…
…and I added more veggies to my veggies
Doubles of everything for me but the ‘shrooms…
…and a sweet cucumber salad
I split the latter with Abe, and we went halfsies on our entrees. (FYI the burger tastes better.)
Many mellow rides followed while we digested. Here are some that aren’t in Anaheim (at least, I don’t think)…
Carousel of Progress
Hall of Presidents (with Obama!)
Also, a Winnie the Pooh ride (<—click for a short video I uploaded on my Mobli page) that definitely would NOT be worth the wait if you don’t have small children.
Another reason we got through everything so quickly?
We ducked in while everyone else was distracted by parades…
Two more parks to go today – Hollywood Studios + Epcot – it should be even crazier since it’s the weekend. But there’s also thunderstorms in the forecast so who knows. Follow me on twitter to stay up-to-date on the adventure!
