Magic Kingdom reached capacity. Sharing Magic Kingdom with 90 000 other Disney-goers dims the magic a tidge for parents. That being said, we worked our fast passes, timed our “Meet Merida” experience—we dashed to her queue at rope-drop!, raced the Speedway, plunged Under the Sea with Ariel, and watched the spectacular Fantasy parade. We went home during the hot hours of the afternoon. We came back when some 30 000 or so people had surrendered.
Tackling the day this way allowed us to do all of the things we set out to do, including finishing the pirate adventures, going on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, and lastly, the Jungle Cruise (better to do at nighttime). We even rode the steam train for Grey, caught a clown act, and paid homage to old-time Disney by riding “It’s a Small World,” which Evie absolutely loved!
Ended the day carrying Evie and Grey out of the park after the Main Street Electrical Parade, the Magic Castle light show (amazing!) and the way-past-bedtime fireworks.
A day to remember…
