Let the fun begin! - Part 1
Our bodies were still
running on European time, so sleeping in was not an option.
By 7am we were up and ready
to get out again.
Since we did not have any
groceries in the room we just headed over to the Contempo Cafť
for breakfast. Didnít take us long to decide on something, so we
ordered, picked up our cups for our beverage and went to find a
table. While we waited for our order to be filled we discussed
on how to spend the day, but soon enough the
Grilled Breakfast Sandwiches,
Egg, Ham and Three-Cheese Blend on Toasted Challah were served
and we enjoyed our breakfast. Didnít take us long to discover
that one order would have been more than enough, as the
sandwiches were huge and we both didnít manage to eat more than
half of it.
So after we were done we put
the remainders on one plate, picked up a lid and walked back to
our room, where we put it in the fridge.
There were Morning Extra
Magic Hours at the Magic Kingdom, so we decided to just head on
It was a nice walk and we
arrived around the time the general public was allowed to enter.
We strolled down Main Street, but once we got to the ropes we
were stuck. Took us a minute to figure out where to go to get
past the ropes, but soon we were on our way further into the
There was a photopass
photographer on the bridge to Liberty Square, so we stopped and
had some photos taken.
We then walked along the
path that leads up to the castle, stopped to watch some
character interaction and then walked towards Fantasyland. We
had some FastPasses for lateron in the day, so we just went to
do whatever was available. We passed by Peter Pan as it already
had a half hour wait and just crossed over to Itís A Small World
and walked right on.
The cast members were joking
around and it was the perfect start to our vacation.
When we got off, all guests
were already allowed into all areas, so we just strolled along,
walked past the Haunted Mansion and towards Big Thunder, but
crowds were streaming over there, so we cut through to get
towards Pirates of the Caribbean and found that there was no
line at all at the Flying Carpets. So why not hop in line there
and enjoy a spin. And that was what we did. We were the second
group to enter and soon sat in our carpet, ready to soar.
What a fun little ride.
When we got off, our
FastPass for Pirates was open
and we entered through the
FastPass line, but it would not have been necessary as there was
not a long line anyway. Soon we sat in another boat and went off
to sail through the pirate inhabited village.
Nice to sit in the air
conditioning for a while, before we left and got right on the
third boat ride of the morning, the Jungle Cruise.
We made it on the second
boat out and had a super fun skipper, who really got into it and
had a few new jokes that we had not heard before. He left us all
But even this fun trip had
to come to an end and we soon found ourselves getting off the
Once on the walkway we
noticed another photopass photographer with a fun prop in hand.
A huge turkeyleg. Needless to say we needed another photo taken.
We now headed towards Main
Street, to check out the shops and any new merchandise we might
want to pick up during the trip. We spent quite some time in the
shops just browsing, then headed over to the jewelers, as I had
my heart set on the passholder Pandora bead. No luck, but we had
a good look at what they had to offer, again, without buying
It was hot and we were
thirsty, so we stopped at Starbucks to get some drinks.
That is always a treat for
us, as the closest Starbucks to where we live is 200 km away.
Tom got a
Mocha Frappuccino, while I
had a Shaken Pineapple Black Tea Infusion.
Tom was very happy with his,
but mine tasted quite a bit artificial and I knew it was a once
and done experience.
But at least both drinks
were cold and we were ready for more fun.
So off we went to one of our
all time favourite rides, the People Mover. And a few minutes
later we sat in our little car going on a ride around
Futureworld. We both love this enjoyable little ride, but once
we got off we had another place to get to, Belleís castle.
I had been super lucky and
was able to push the reservation we had made weeks in advance
one day forward.
