Running (walking) with Disney - Day 7

Magic Kingdom

Quote of the day
"Hmm, that was not the most welly constructed sentence"

So I'm tired today.
Getting up was harder today than previous days. I have an eye cream sample that has caffeine in it... I used it this morning.
We breakfasted at Captain Cook's in the Poly. It was the first time we have done this early in the morning and it was empty... Lovely. We were on the monorail to the Magic Kingdom with little trouble.

Magic Kingdom is about to open!!! 

So now we should talk about our park plans. This trip we (and by We I mean my husband) have organized our Disney days using touringplans.com - and wow are they organized. We have never been sooo efficient in our park touring.

We usually are more "Whatcha wanna do now" and "Hey, look over there... Ooo, Shiny". So this well planned approach is new and confusing to me. Where is the time in each ride's shop? And when do I get my assorted, churro, roast nuts, Mickey bar etc. However, after two days of seeing more than we have seen in four days on previous trips, I am seeing the upsides. [Editor's note: Said husband was trying to find a solution to the problem of seeing everything everyone wanted to see in the parks while still leaving the parks by 4:00 or 5:00 in the afternoon so that we could get to bed early -- since some of our days this trip require getting up before 4:00 AM]

So with the same meticulously crafted plan we tackled the Magic Kingdom. And we ruled. Making a few strategic decisions along the way we left the park earlier than originally planned. And were able to have a more relaxing evening.... And get off achy feet. yay!

Enjoying the Magic Carpet ride

Lines aren't bad at all this morning. 

We had good timing :) 
Proof of the time :) it was 9:30 am when we were finishing Small World.  

Defeating Emperor Zurg takes focus, skill and....

intense concentration.... we had none of those ;) 

Random thoughts...
It's construction season here. Sometimes you really can't get there from here. Sigh.

Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake.

I wasn't on board with the whole magic band thing when they announced it back when. But I am converted. They are cool. And a must for young'ns. We observed someone bringing a lost little girl to guest services. English was not her first language. She was probably 6 years old. And with her magic band's help, cast members were calling her dad's cell phone in less than 5 mins.
My kids will be wearing magic bands in the parks.

Ok, her dad didn't pick up, but that's not on the magicband.
