Hank – We spent the day at Magic Kingdom. There were far more people here than at Epcot yesterday, including an exponential increase in the number of children. One thing that also increases with the number of children is the number of parents being put to the test by a child having an actual or a manufactured meltdown. If you’re not seeing one you only need to walk another 50 feet. I was grateful I was unaccompanied by a child or two. In my mind if you want to do something special with a child take them into the kitchen and make cookies together. But that’s me.
Kathy hit the roller coasters while I waited for her. Outside of that we did a few other rides, walked a zillion miles while we checked out the park a few times, and did a lot of people watching. One thing we did spring for was a caricature of us commemorating our cycling adventure. I like it a lot. You’ll see it in the photos.
Kathy – It was a sunny day in the Magic Kingdom today with temps eventually reaching the mid 60’s. We went on about ten different rides but by far my favorites were the roller coasters. 🎢 Too bad Hank is not up for them anymore. I missed him not joining me. In our younger days we used to love going on the biggest and best thrill seeking roller coasters we could find. So sorry Hank’s equilibrium can’t take it anymore. Hopefully I will be a crazy old lady and still riding roller coasters when I’m 80 years old!
Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is really just a sensory overloading amazing opportunity that awaits anyone willing to come through their gates. I’m glad we got to experience it…but I’m good for awhile. I enjoyed seeing all the beautiful landscaped gardens areas in the park and the engineering involved in making the rides interested me greatly. The merchandising and advertising that the park uses to entice you is incredible. Of course it is geared to ensure you are having fun….and buying food, drinks, sugar filled snacks, and TONS of Disney products that you can’t live without. This includes those Mickey and Minnie Mouse headbands that two-thirds of all the park visitors had on. We didn’t buy any, but did put them on for an obligatory picture. 🎀
I loved seeing all the children having fun and many of the little girls in their princess dresses and tiaras. So much excitement in those little faces. I also watched the children eating enormous amounts of sugar, run around like crazy, and then start to crash around 6pm as they were worn out from a full day of activities. This is when I noticed the tears and tantrums. We are thankful we didn’t have children with us. That is a lot of work (and a huge expense) for parents. We will just take our grandkids (if we ever have any) on a bike ride instead. 😊
So the magical day at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom comes to an end. We are tired and ready to call it a day. No tears or tantrums from us, just ready for some rest before we are back to riding bikes tomorrow. ✨🚴♀️✨🚴♂️✨
