Mickey woke us up again at 7:30. Today was the big day - we were headed to the Magic Kingdom!! This would be Glen's first time ever at Disney. We were on the bus by 8:30 and there in time for rope drop.
We ran down the Main Street U.S.A. to Space Mountain! Impatiently we waited for the CM to let a few empty cars go around. Glen was the first person on. I thought he would love this ride as he loves coasters. Well when we got off he swore he would never ride that again!! He didn't like being first on and riding in the dark! I just laughed so hard! I couldn't believe he was scared of Space Mountain!!
Next we headed over to do some of my favs: Peter Pan and IASW. The crowds were nonexistant. We were just walking on most of them. One of the CM gave us a pass to go to the front of the line when he say our honeymoon ears. However we really didn't need to use it.
We were just about to enter the POTC when the one minute of silence came on. It was quite moving.
There was some light rain showers but we just put on our ponchos and kept on going!
We ate burgers and fries at Peco Bill's. It wasn't bad for theme park food!
About 2:00 we headed over to Main Street USA to get some cinnamon buns from the bakery and get a spot for the parade. The Dapper Dans came over and remarked on our honeymoon ears. There were about 5 newlywed couples sitting next to us and we were the only ones wearing the ears.
The parade at MK is definately the best of all. We really enjoyed it.
Left the park about 4:30. THe crowds were so low that we had managed to do most of the park already. We took the bus back to the ASMu.
We relaxed in the hotel room for awhile and sent off some postcards. I had bought the Orlando Entertainment book so we headed off site to find some cheap dinner. We ended up at a small Italian restaurant on Irlo Bronson. It was the BEST pizza. WIth the coupon it only cost us $12 for an extra large pizza, cheese toast and drinks. After dinner we stopped at Walmart as it was clear we would need more film the way Glen was snapping pictures!
We hopped back in the car and drove to the Boardwalk. We browsed in the shops and decided to go to Jellyrolls. This place was the best!! We stayed for two and a half hours! We loved it (except the very expensive drinks of course!)! We were home (ASMu) by 12 and ready for bed!

:D Do you remember the name of the italian place? We eat most of our meals off-site and I am always on the lookout for good ones.
