A supercalifragilisticexpialidocious day! It was amazing, even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious! We started our day at the Grand Floridian for the Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Breakfast with Mary Poppins, Alice, the Mad Hatter, Winnie the Pooh and Tigger. Who could ask for more?
The bonus of starting our day here was we were able to take the monorail over to the Magic Kingdom killing two birds with one stone – one, we wanted to ride the monorail at least once on our trip. And two, the Magic Kingdom’s parking is not very handicapped accessible. But my father-in-law could ride his scooter right on to the monorail. Easy peasy!!
We arrived at the Magic Kingdom around 9:30am. Jeff and his mom went to pick up a wheelchair for her, so Grampy & I ventured on to Main Street where we saw Pinocchio with no wait!! Then we headed over to Fantasyland to ride Winnie the Pooh (twice upon Sean’s insistence!), Peter Pan, It’s a Small World, and Mickey’s Philharmagic. And then jumped on the train over to Frontierland. Another handicapped accessible hurdle is you cannot take scooters on the train, so Jeff rode it across the park and met us at the train right as we pulled in to the station. Next up was Pirates of the Caribbean, Tiki Room, and Country Bear Jamboree. And that’s where Sean pooped out on us. One minute he was laughing at the bears, the next he was sound asleep on my shoulder. We decided to head over to see the Hall of Presidents so we could sit for a while and let him continue to sleep. This attraction has been redone so it was interesting to sit and watch it, although admittedly I almost fell asleep myself. We transferred Sean to his stroller and he continued to sleep, so we staked out a spot to watch the parade and grabbed a snack. The little party pooper slept soundly through the entire parade, and then some.
While we waited for the personalization of his ears, Jeff and his dad played a game of checkers which was a nice diversion. Meanwhile we saw the flag retreat ceremony. Something very cool we never would have seen otherwise.
We had dinner at Pecos Bill, and then found the perfect bench in Frontierland across from the shooting gallery to watch Spectromagic. We haven’t seen this parade in a long time, and remember how wonderful it is! It’s pure magic. Sean caught Snow White’s attention, and she came over to personally say hello to him. Unfortunately Jeff didn’t capture it on film. He was too busy looking at the next float instead of what was right in front of him. Aren’t we all guilty of that most of the time?
We were pooped by the time the day was done, but it was a leisurely day full of great memories.
