A fine day in the MK


I left you here. Guess where that is yet?



Yes the Tiki Room – It was starting soon and I figured why not.









After that it was Time for another adventure, a Pirate adventure.





Lots of editing to get this even to halfway decent.



We want the redhead.





With the pirate booty safe in Johnny Depp’s hands I head to Frontierland for the wildest ride in the west.



It was only 11:20am.

What to do while waiting?? Splash of course.



The line was not real short but it kept moving. Probably 45 min from end of line to end of ride.







HM









The cannon did NOT soak me this time. But somehow going down the hill the water came up and over the boat and soaked me in the back. I always seem to get it one way or another.

Time to use the FP and a great ride it was.



Then over to HM and since I had already done the interactive queue opted for the fast side.



I kept trying to get her with her eyes open but no luck.




The only picture I ever seem to get in there.





Construction photos. With Dumbo gone, no way to get those high shots anymore. On the bright side, there is a new Dumbo to ride so I grabbed a FP.



Which were located near Philharmagic.



I finally got this right.



Wandering in to the shop.





Then it was off to lunch. Where might you ask? I had to break in the new TIW card.

I had an ADR at the Plaza. No pepper girl and much less noise this time.
I still had the same thing and actually remembered a picture this time, after half was done.



And Marv I think I found your HM at the Plaza.



It was hot and about 2:00 or so and I was hot. I needed something sweet for later so I ducked in here to get a goodie.



Head toward the train station that voice, you know the one that pops in your head to remind you that you forgot something? Yeah that one. Dumbo FP. CRAP. Hot and a bit tired but not to miss out, the train , the train. Yes the train was an option but looking at the FP and the newly enforced FP windows I was nervous. I did not want to make it all the way over there to be denied.

That would be Horrible.

Train was pulling into the station and soon we were all on our way. We made the required stop by Splash and then on to the newly renovated and named Fantasyland station.







Yes I am in rush but still can’t help myself.





Yup even time for this.





There is that voice again- Hurry up , take those later.



Sadly I never made it IN that bathroom.

Horrible I know.

I made it up to CM and explained I was at lunch and….

Continued Next Post....

No problem!!! See NOT Horrible

Using the FP did not allow me to actually see the stand by games.

















So I attempted shots from here. Not just clouds but with trees and the new angle not too much to see.





I thought this was cute



Another new One



More Construction





More views of the new Fantasyland







I took the train back around and then headed out the gate to the monorail and then to the tram.



Not having to wait for a bus during what is called “shuttle time” and buses are not frequent was NOT horrible.

It was here I discovered a text from Disney

Your resort room is ready! Stop by the front desk for your room number. Have a magical day!

Pat, I LOVE your dress...you look so pretty.

Glad Goofy was working.

Now explain to me how you got a discount on the TIW? We're buying AP's and a TIW card when we get there next Saturday

I would never have guessed MK...and you driving it.

I'm guessing the Tiki Room as well.

I head that way I think most of the time. Of course there is a Pirate ride there for you.

Thanks - When I walk in with a dress now staff just says " there goes summer Pat"

I will have a new AP in Oct so I am curious who I will get and I am keeping the envelope for good luck.

Go to Guest Services and they can sell you one. Once YOu have your AP they will give you the Ap discount. $75 instead of $100.

I think this trip I will keep people guessing.

Tiki room up and the rest of the morning and afternoon too.

This totally reminded me that I need a do-over on one of these babies in October. Yummy!

I am embarrassed to admit that I didn't know you could get FPs for the new Dumbo. Good to know because I must ride that in October, for research purpose and all.

You got some great photos of the construction and the new Fantasyland.

Oh - and no pepper girl!

Put it on the list - high up on the list.

New Dumbo has FP and I am hearing that many attractions will be offering the new rfid FP system or xpass or next gen fp whatever they are calling it.

Hooray for no Pepper girl. I did not have a bad experience last time but this time was MUCH better.

It will be so nice to see Magic Kingdom without walls and cranes again when that time finally comes. It's going to be fabulous and huge!

Same here! We will have to try and meet up the next time we are both down there.

Love all the shots from the new Fantasyland! Can you believe that we never made it over there??? I guess when we do, we will get to see lots of new stuff!

Wow! You got alot done already! I'm glad the FP police didn't come after you for being late! Looks like your check-in and room text went very well! Gotta love DVC! Now let's see if you got your request...
