    well after a good nights sleep, we made our way to the 4th floor for Chef Mickeys for our 7.55am ADR.

    Theyd changed the entrance slightly, to accommodate a queue. Concourse Steakhouse had been replaced by The Contempo Cafe.
    After reaching the podium and getting our buzzer we waited in the seating area. Decided against getting our pic taken at this point, after all we were coming back a few times. Not long after our buzzer went off-think this was the quickest of all our visits.
    Apart from the entrance not much had changed, we were seated right by the buffet. Our server came out and took out drinks order, she was friendly and efficient.

    there was a great selection of food to choose from.
    Bagels,croissants,fresh fruit,yoghurt,pastries,donuts,cereal. Hot food-bacon,sausages,eggs,breakfast lasagne,pancakes,french toast.

    Now to me Disney world just isnt Disney world without Magic kingdom. so i made sure we went there for our 1st full day. we caught the monorail there (forgotten about the walkway id read about on DIS at this point)
    it seemed to take forever, it took ages to arrive then it kept stop/starting due to technical problems and traffic problem. I couldnt remember any problems like this on our last trip. Finally we arrived at Magic kingdom.

    I couldnt wait to see the castle, one of my fav parts of the holiday. to me the holiday doesnt start until ive seen the castle. Theres just something Magical about it :cloud9:
    Today was a very very hot and beautiful day.x:)
    After seeing the castle and taking a few pics, we headed to guest services to get a GAC (guest assistance card) now although we make a point of getting one it does take us a while to get round to actually using it. not sure why, thats just the way we are.
    We looked briefly in a few shops before heading to Tomorrowland, we wanted to try The Laughter floor-but it wasnt working. so instead we did Stitches great escape, followed by Buzz, then The carousel of progress.
    We stopped at Cosmic Rays for a quick bite to eat-just burgers.
    Next stop was the parade, it was ok but not as good as any others id seen.
    Luke wanted to do Splash mountain but as the parade was heading that way we decided to look around Adventure land and go on the Magical Carpets of Aladdin. Next stop was Splash mountain, we got fast passes for it.
    So rode the Liberty Square River boat, it was just nice to sit down and relax
    for a bit.

    We then went to see Philharmagic-last time luke didnt like this but thankfully he loved it this time.
    It was then time to do Splash Mountain, we'd barely started when we were soaked by another boat doing the big splash. Luke and i love getting wet, Matt doesnt like it. :laughing:
    We werent too far away from doing the big splash when it stopped, now usually the rides do stop every so often but after a while knew something was up. 10 mins later and we hadnt gone anywhere, the family with us were getting impatient. didnt help we were right by a footpath and an exit.
    Thankfully it moved a few mins later, though not by much about 10 ft. Thing is as we'd moved we werent near the exit and now it was inbetween 2 footpaths. Finally after 40mins of being stuck they got us all off, bit of a struggle but we managed it. one bonus was that they took us off the ride via the backstage area, it was cool to see things we werent really meant to see.
    Poor Luke he'd waited all day for Splash only for it to break down on us.
    we decided to go to Pinocchio's for some Pizza before letting Luke pick a ride. He chose Buzz, we just managed to do that before watching 'Wishes'
    [​IMG]
    After Wishes i wanted to try to do Splash before the park closed, thankfully it was open and worked ok. Although Luke was disappointed we didnt really get wet this time. We had just enough time to Do Big Thunder Mountain.
    i thought it was fab doing these 2 rides in the dark, a new experience.
    We decided to try the walkway back to the Contemporary, was easy to find and literally took a few mins-5 at most.
    After a bit of leftover cake we finally went to bed.....:goodvibes

    Lovely day, we always to MK on our first full day, I too fell the holiday has not started until I see the castle. The walkway to the hotel is very handy, especially at park closing time when you see lots of q's for the monorail:)
