|Crowded -- on my goodness -- it was so crowded on Main Street that leads straight up to the actual Magic Kingdom |
structure itself that I could have fallen and NEVER hit the pavement!
Note to self: Never, EVER, go to Walt Disney World during Spring Break -- NEVER! :-)
When we saw the crushing crowds, we made our way over to the side up next to the entrance to "Tomorrow Land"
and used one of our Disney Dining Plan "Counter Service" entitlement at a fast food place and enjoyed a relaxing
lunch of hamburgers and fries while we watched some parade wind its way all up Main Street to the Castle, then
circle around and head back down towards the train station. By the time we finished lunch, the crowds had
thinned a tiny bit so we made our way past the Castle and checked things out there.
People -- thousands of people shuffling along and 59.6 million strollers parked everywhere. We wanted to ride the
silly but fun "Peter Pan" ride but the wait time was like 2 hours. Then D saw a person by a chain gate that
motioned for us to come there and bing, bang, we were flying over London in about 2 minutes.
We gave up on riding "It's a Small World" -- the wait time there was over well over 2 hours also. So we wandered
over into the "Liberty Section" and headed for the "Haunted House" ride. After banging around in the regular
queue line for only about ten minutes, we were able to then take the wheelchair entrance to the ride and were
being whisked away in the haunted house in about 5 minutes. We love this ride -- no matter
how many times we take it.
After our scary ride, we decided to "get out of Dodge," so to speak and we hopped on the Monorail and zoomed
back over to our favorite haunt -- EPCOT and World Showcase. We wandered around in the center of the EPCOT
Concourse area and while D shopped a bit inside the "Mouse Gear" shop (if it is related to "Mickey" and it is not in
that store, it does NOT exist), I sat in the shade, sipped a cool one and people watched.
Finally we made it back to the British Section and just in time for a live street performer show -- a riotous
comedy about King Arthur & The Holy Grail with the cast members interacting with people they pull out of the
crowds to play various parts. It is all in fun -- I even did it two years ago when we were here and over in the
Italian Section where I was plucked out of the crowd to play Romeo in the street performance show called,
"Romeo and Edna."
One thing I have noticed over the years is that the more "cool ones" one has had to refresh themselves with, the
funnier these street performer shows are to either watch or perform in. :-)
