Day 2-Magic Kingdom

We headed back to MK today and spent the entire day there. We did rides, attractions, and visited some shops. We headed back to fantasy land first thing, because we had missed some rides we really wanted to do. The first thing we rode was Peter Pan's flight, then we fast passed The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, and while we were waiting on the fast pass, we rode on Snow whites scary adventures. After we did snow white, we went and did Winnie the Pooh and thought about doing Ariel's Grotto, but the wait there was 50 minutes, so we decided to pass. My two aren't into the princesses to wait an hour to see Ariel.

We went to an early lunch as we have early dinner reservations. We lunched at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe and the kids lunched at The village Fry shop, where they had McDonalds French fries and hot dogs. Of course, my two don't eat hot dogs, so they ate the bun with ketchup and Fries.
Cosmic Rays was good, I liked it a lot, they offer a variety of sandwiches, wraps and burgers. Nice selection.

After lunch we headed over to Adventureland and walked through the Swiss Family Tree house, rode on the Jungle Cruise and The Magic Carpets of Alladin. Then we went to the Enchanted Tiki Room and saw a little show.

After Adventureland, we headed over to the Wilderness Lodge by boat and ate dinner in the Whispering Winds Cafe, it was a pretty early dinner. The dinner there, which was still their lunch menu was OK, to me it was nothing special, and I think because they were in the lunch to dinner switch, they didn't have to much show business stuff going on. Oh well. After Lucnh we headed back to MK and did some shopping, and saw Mickey's Philar Magic again and then got ready on Main street to watch Spectro Magic.
While we were sitting on the curb waiting to watch Spectro, I ran across to pick up some snacks at the Main street bakery. The have tonnes of goodies. The line up there was pretty long and the wait was about 20 minutes for me to be served. The kids were having fun waiting on the street to watch Spectro. I brought some lighted glow sticks, so they were busy with them.

Spectro was very good. My favorite parade of the whole trip. Again as we left to the bus stop, the whole park was exiting, which again was a very slow and long process. We made a run for the bus stop and were the first people in line. Horray, and earlier night tonight. WE got back to the hotel about 845pm and crashed again. ANother tiring but very fun day. Ready for Day 3
