Our entire Monday was devoted to Magic Kingdom. It looked so cute decorated for Fall! Half of the group woke up early to start riding rides, and my room stayed in bed until 8 as we were less concerned with rides. I’m so happy with this decision. Because we had tickets for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party that evening, the ride wait times were nonexistent and we walked right onto the ride our friends spent an hour waiting in line for! As we were waiting for the bus to come, I realized that I forgot my phone in the room… guess I’m not that attached to it! Unfortunately, we missed the bus and instead took an Uber to the crowded monorail. From there, we sprinted to Buzz Light-ear, our first Fastpass of the day, with 3 minutes to spare before it expired. I hated the ride. I didn’t understand what we were supposed to be doing and Hoff, who I as riding with, kept spinning our car in circles the entire time!
After the atrocity that was the first ride, Hannah and I broke off from the rest of the group to explore a bit while they rode another ride. We walked past Peter Pan and the Evil Stepsisters before meeting Fairy Godmother. Instead of asking for a man, I was tempted to ask her to fix my broken computer. She seemed more preoccupied with the bow on my Minnie Ears and was so funny.
After meeting her, I channeled my inner Jack and the Bean Stalk and frolicked around the park a bit before reuniting with the rest of the group.
The gang started walking to our next Fastpass, the Jungle Cruise. On the way I saw Mary Poppins, my favorite character EVER and had to stop and meet her.
The Jungle Cruise wasn’t the worst ride of the day, but I was tired and hangry and the jokes that the tour guide kept making were really just not that funny. I couldn’t wait to get off the boat and find food!!! Once we were freed from the ride, we sprinted to the wharf for real food. Finally, a quick service that wasn’t fried and gross! Lunch was grilled salmon, rice and green beans. Afterwards, the girls headed to meet Tinker Bell before racing back across the park to watch the parade.
We met up with the boys at the Hall of Presidents (so GW of us). This was probably the best show/ride of the day, and it only went down from there. We decided to go to the Tiki Room, which is a giant circle with robot birds singing these God-awful songs. It was the worst 9 minutes of my life and I couldn’t wait to leave. I think I may have slept through some of it, it was that bad. The only thing I hate more than mini golf is the Tiki Room, and that’s saying a lot.
Our final attraction of the day was a Monsters Inc show which was funny, but yet again I was tired and hangry. Jethyl was picked on and asked to disappear, which was hilarious. Dinner was much-needed, and did not disappoint. Of course, as a joke, Hoff told me not to yell at the waiter after our horrible Epcot experience. Fortunately our waitress was hilarious and kept bringing us baskets of cornbread. I had prime rib with mashed potatoes and green beans. After we ate, it was finally time for the highlight of our trip, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!!!
