So - DAY ONE FRI; Jan 6th High temp for the day = 78 degrees My adventure began with me finishing up things at work and heading off to DFW airport around 8 for a 9:40am flight. It sure felt really refreshing to drop the silliness of work and enstead adopt another 4 lettered word: PLAY and play I did as the flight was rather uneventful though I do say I did see a very nice young lady one row in back of me who I could have sworn was reading a book but I dismissed this as an afterthough. MORE ON THIS LATER as this comment will come back into play a few days later. WE finally touched down at MCO around 2pm with me hitting the ground floor (and to ME) of the airport as quickly as I could. Enjoyed talking to the people just right across from me on the plane; which made the process of getting to the Magical Express bus system so much less taxing for me. ANYWHO - got all checked in the CBR around 3pm and I was now officially in WDW mode!! My first stop was MK and to get a bite to eat at Caseys (I had nothing of "subtsance" allllllllll day) (something I have never seen before while at MK) ** JUST DOUBLE CLICK W/YOUR MOUSE OVER THE ABOVE VIDEO & IT WILL PLAY 4 YOU ** and I jjuusstt had to get a: It was just me and that hotdog in front of CIndy's castle; just a chillin out and people watching for a while. After that, I was off to ride HM; pretty cool ride esp with all the new additions. Had fun walking around MK a bit but before I knew it, it was time to head on over to HS since it was rapidly approaching 5pm. **JUST DOUBLE CLICK ON THE ABOVE VIDEO & IT WILL PLAY 4 U ** Arrived at HS - Grabbed me a from this place: (THE 'RITA TASTED SOOOOOOO GOOD) and made it just in time for a beautiful view of Fantasmic (I have never seen it): ** JUST DOUBLE CLICK W/YOUR MOUSE OVER THE ABOVE VIDEO & IT WILL PLAY 4 YOU ** And who can forget STAR TOURS?? I rode that bugger 3 times IN A ROW!! I have never been on it before & it was quite a treat for me to be in row one as I felt like I was IN the movie. ANd what was soooooo nice about STar Tours, is that its close by this place: GUESS WHICH CHARACTER IS MY 2nd FAV???? HHMMMMMMMM.......... HINT: My last name is Newton. It was also nice to see a still from the movie, "SO Dear to my Heart" and see where Walt got the idea from for his barn: AND FINALLY!! It was nice to finally see the Abe AA: (It's amazing to see the tech advances in AA's from the 60's AAs to the 80's "Joe Cocker AA" out at the DIsney Studios) ANYWHO - After a quick shot of Coca Cola and another pretzel, I was off to see this spectacle: and - **JUST DOUBLE CLICK OVER THE TWO VIDEOS POSTED ABOVE & THEY WILL PLAY FOR YOU ** This was really a sight to behold as I have never seen it before. So I felt like a little kid with his mouth hanging open, taking in all the sights with a "WOW!" look to my face. I must have hung out in that section of HS for about 20 minutes before I decided that all this was enough for my first day and decided to mosey up on outta HS around 11pm and made it back to CBR around 11:30pm for a quick stop off at Old Port Royale for 6......yes count them Six cc cookies and two cans of Coke. (DIET?? WHAT DIET??) Threw myself into a nice hot bubble bath while nibbling on a few cookies while looking at the my "Must Do's" for the next day. Chilled out watching "The Stacey Channel" while finishing my late night snack as I finally tumbled off to Neverland around 1am. UP NEXT: So - how fast can you get dressed and out that hotel door for a impromptu charcter breakfast?? T.T.F.N.
