2012 - OLYMPIC FREE TOUR - Day 13 - Magic Kingdom - Mara - Chef Mickey's - MK EMH

Day 13 – Magic Kingdom – Mara – Chef Mickey’s – Magic Kingdom EMH

We took the bus in today to Magic Kingdom, arriving just in time to see the opening ceremony. Once inside we headed over to Tomorrowland and picked up fast passes for Space Mountain. Buzz Lightyear was a walk on at this time, so we managed to ride it three times in succession.

Moving on to Indy Speedway, after a short wait, we each did single rider, which was a first time for Emma riding alone.

Since we had not eaten yet, we had a stroll back to Main Street Bakery and as usual the queue was enormous. We eventually managed to get a table, after a short wait.

Nigel: Egg and Cheese Croissant – Orange Juice.
Sue: Cherry Danish – Orange Juice.
Emma: Croissant – Fruit Cup – Orange Juice.

Returning back to Tomorrowland, Emma and myself made use of our Space Mountain fast passes whilst Sue decided to sit this one out. Next up was a circuit on TTA, which we tend to use for more of a rest than a ride. Walking past the Laugh Floor, the lines looked empty so we decided to take a look and walked straight into the theatre. We have done this attraction many times, but I have only managed to get on screen once! Moving further round into the new development, we headed towards the new Barnstormer ride. The queue time far outweighed the actual ride time but it was nice to see the new layout.

As we were exiting the ride, a train was just pulling into the station, so we decided to have a full circuit of the park, and then after having a peek at the new Dumbo ride, we made our way to Mickey’s Philharmagic. This is one of my favourite shows.

We had a look around the gift shop before making our way across to the Carousel. Since the lines were low, we managed to ride twice in succession. Dark clouds were now forming overhead, and it look like the inevitable storm was imminent. The rain started falling as we reached Casey’s Corner and so we made our way to the exit through the shops, meeting up with the Mayor on the way.

Exiting the Emporium, the rainstorm was in full swing, which resulted in a good ten-minute wait before we could venture outside.

We got the bus back to OKW and noticed that the small pool was completely deserted.

We then decided to drive over to Mara in Animal Kingdom Lodge for lunch.

Nigel: Chicken Pitta with extra Jalepeno’s – Cheesecake – Monster Energy
Sue: Pepperoni Flatbread – Zebra Domes – Orange Juice
Emma: Pepperoni Flatbread – Brownie – Diet Coke

I must say that this Chicken Pitta was enormous, which in turn still left me full when I reached Chef Mickey’s later in the evening.

Returning back to OKW we all crashed out on top of the beds, waking in time to get ready for our ADR at Chef Mickeys. We drove to the Contemporary, where the car park was extremely busy.

As we were early for our reservation, we had a browse around the gift shop before checking in. We did not bother with the photograph and was shown straight to our table. Mickey and Minnie both arrived in quick succession and it was a very quick pit stop!

This was not what we had become used to from our many previous visits here. Donald, Pluto and Goofy also made appearances and these did not seem so rushed.

I do not know if it was the poor character interaction or the fact that I was still quite full from our lunch, but Chef Mickeys is one we shall give a miss on next years DDP.

We had arranged to meet Martin, Wendy and family inside Magic Kingdom for EMH and we eventually caught up with them outside Crystal Palace around 21:30. We watched Wishes from outside of The Plaza Restaurant and then rode Buzz Lightyear.

Emma, Craig, Abi and myself rode Space Mountain before moving across to Frontierland. This time it was Emma, Martin, Craig, Abi and myself who rode Splash Mountain whilst Sue, Wendy and Emily watched the Electrical Parade from outside Pecos Bills. Pirates was next up, which we all rode with no queue, and I fancied a Pineapple Dole Whip float from Aloha Isle Refreshments.

One final ride before we called it a night and that was Big Thunder Mountain. Exiting the park along Main Street we had a few photopass photographs taken and noticed that the clock was showing 01:05.

It was a short slow walk back to the Contemporary to collect our cars before arriving back at OKW at 02:00. Time for bed!

Coming up next - Florida Mall - Flo Rida Concert - Tutto Italia.

Return to INDEX
