While on my way to the Magic Kingdom today..(pictures/sound)

(If you want sound, click above, no HTML anymore--you might have to minimize your media player if it pops up in the way)




Well, not actually today, but a few weeks ago.....
......as Mickey says, Up and at 'em. A great looking day out the window here. Where
to? MGM over there?


Hmmmmm, a boat ride and I'm there.



There maybe? Epcot? I can walk over there.



MGM???



Hmmmmmmm, kind of scary.



Here comes a boat back from MGM......



Naaaaaaaaa, I think I'll head over to The Magic Kingdom today, as planned.



Ahhhhh, home. Hmmm, that monorail sure looks inviting, the check points
look a little crowded, maybe a spin around Seven Seas Lagoon before I go into MK. Want to go for the ride? Well, come on, let's go......



This way, over here.....







Don't worry, we'll be back in about 25 minutes or there about.



Yep, let's get up there....





We'll be over there in just a bit, maybe 20 minutes.......





Here it comes.....



No crowds, light day...



See ya in a bit........



Pretty, isn't it??

As we pull in, one pulls out, neat!!!



And as we pull in, we can see where we'll be going in a bit....the Poly



The Grand Floridian.



Look, over there, Bay Lake. Cool, we're pulling into the Grand Canyon
Concourse here at the Contemporary Resort. Very cool.



Man, this is really neat, only at Disney.









Half staff for President Reagan.



As we get set to pull out, a quick look down and there is Chef Mickey's.



And, as we exit, the Wilderness Lodge out there beyond the trees.



And the waterway connecting Seven Seas lagoon and Bay Lake.



Now that was neat!!!



Looks like the Poly ahead. Nice memories of our family trip some years
ago. Maybe again some day.



We'll be over there in a bit.









Ahhhhh, what nice memories.

Hmmmmm, we know some DIS'ers who have been here not all that long ago.



Yikes, now it is way over there!!



Now onto the Grand Floridian. Looks like the Del in San Diego, so luxurious.











Looks like nobody is getting on. The car all to myself.



See, the Magic Kingdom is just ahead.



So, we were......there....and



there, and



there.



Let's do that again.....



and



and there.



Looks like we are back, and in just about 20 minutes or so.





Everybody out....



That sure is pretty over there.



I love the whooooosh as they come into the station.

Thanks for the ride, it's one of my favorite things at WDW....the monorail and seeing all those beautiful sights from it. I love the music, too. Meet you in the MK, okay?!?

What else can I say but thank-you. It was a very long day that ended with some good volunteer work. I am so ready for my beach vacation in 12 days. Thanks for putting a smile on my face and a jump in my step!
