JULY 12TH PART THREE: Our Last Night Like (almost) always, we spent our last night in the Magic Kingdom. As you can see, the sky was mighty ominous. It made for some cool pictures though. Dream Along with Mickey! Thankfully we missed the Join the party! A castle party! song otherwise it wouldve gotten stuck in my head and I would have driven everyone else insane by singing it over and over again. Snow Whites dress is my favorite because it has a cape. That makes it way better than all the others. Can capes be a thing again? I want one. I know the Incredibles warns against them, but its not like Im out saving the world or anything. Just watching too much Netflix and worrying about my student loans. We decided to grab some dinner at Pinocchio Village Haus. They now serve flatbread pizza instead of the usual Disney pizza. I had to try one. It was just OK. Im not really a fan of Disney pizza (too much doughy crust) so I preferred this to that, but it wasnt anything mindblowing. After dinner, Dad and I went to grab Fastpasses for Space Mountain while Mom and Katie rode the Haunted Mansion. We wanted FP for after Wishes, so we had to sit there awhile waiting for the right window to open. The one time we needed a swarm of people or a giant tour group or something, there wasnt one. Of course. We got the FP and met up with Mom and Katie at the Laugh Floor just as the downpour began. Thanks to the rain, a lot of people followed suit. As more and more rain fell, stuff started bubbling up through the drainage grates. It was weird and foamy. I was tempted to just stand there and watch it bubble up, but we had to keep moving. The portal to Monstropolis was waiting. In the monster world, you can buy a snack thats just sugar, salt, and fat. Thats the name. They dont even try to make it sound healthy. This is my kind of place. Monsters are clearly smarter than us. They have this whole green energy thing down pat. They even eat all the garbage! Why cant we be this efficient??? During the show, Buddy Boil had quite the memorable interaction with a woman in the audience. Buddy fired off a series of simple Yes/No questions and she responded. Only she didnt speak English, so her family was quietly prompting her how to answer. Buddy didnt realize this until he asked a question that required a more complicated response. When she didnt respond and he figured out what was going on, he lost it. WEVE BEEN TALKING FOR THREE AND A HALF MINUTES AND YOU DONT EVEN UNDERSTAND ENGLISH? It was funny. I realize this probably doesn't sound at all amusing, but you had to be there. Unfortunately, "You had to be there" doesn't translate well to TR. After that, we left tomorrow behind in favor of a turn of the century small town. We walked through the Emporium (which was an overcrowded mess with wet floors from the rain) and then decided to find a spot for the parade in Town Square. While we were waiting, I was struck by the sudden inspiration to go get a homemade ice cream sandwich from the Main Street Bakery. Its something Ive always said I need to do, but never have. So this was it. The moment had arrived. Off to the Bakery I went. Because everyone was in line at the Ice Cream Parlor, there was no wait. Score. Heres the half-eaten final product. Theres a sugar cookie with sprinkles on top and chocolate chip on bottom. I couldnt decide, so why not both? It was huge and I couldnt finish it, but it was very good. I can see (taste?) why theyre so highly recommended. Im glad I got to try one when I did because who knows if theyll be back when the Bakery+Starbucks reopens. As the pavement dried, fun shapes started to appear. We passed the time by playing Rorschach Test. We think that one looks like Donald Duck. Before long it was time for the Main Street Electrical Parade. MSEP is, as I say in every TR, something I feel super meh about. I watch it because thats what we always do and it would be weird not to watch, but still. I never connected to it the way I did with SpectroMagic. Spectro makes me cry. MSEP makes me go Oh, thats nice, I guess. Anyway, heres a bunch of pictures.
