      Day 1 The Magic Kingdom
      (I decided to add a commentary)

      While some napped I ventured out on my own for my first sights of the Magic Kingdom



      I could hear the music for the castle show as I entered the park and hurried through main street.





      I must say I loved the little show, but that's me. I love shows and parades! I would have watched this again from the begining if only there had been a couple more days.
      After the show turned around and headed towards the sign that said Liberty Square, that was new and I wanted to explore.

      Somehow without realizing it I ended up in line for the Haunted Mansion



      I loved the room with the stairs. Very cool effect.

      Since I refused to carry a map, I kept walking and ended up in Frontierland and caught Woody's Cowboy Camp. More singing and dancing. This is my lucky day!



      Where to next?



      At this point Big Thunder Mountain was down for a little R and R so I rode splash jumped the train to Toontown to connect to Tomorrowland then raced back to join Mousercise at the Country Bear Jamboree



      We walked through to Fantasyland and made our next stop in the small world



      In tomorrowland Mousersice picked up a FP for Space and we rode the 'TTA' or peoplemover.
      The No-So-Spacey-Mountain


      There was the 1pm meet where our group grew to four members and we treked out again with Coheteboy and Jeff joining us, or we joined them, however you look at it.


      At some point while we were in the hall of presidents, it rained. We stayed dry and listened to Pal Mickey.



      PIRATES!!! These don't sing though. And we were too excited to be heading towards the Tiki Room to stop for long. I have no idea why they were out.

        And the rain, rain, rain, came down, down down.


        Fast passes are cool.



        My first day was amazing!

          Day 2 - Animal Kingdom



          Dragons? I want to see dragons!

          Pretty pretty park.



          awesome signage


          which way?



          Would you believe they were taking pictures of monkeys. I think that makes the picture funnier.



          Must be getting closer

                                Found NEMO!!











                                Goofy was waiting outside the exit of Dinosour - You will have to check out another trip report for my reaction to that ride. It was reinacted in the store after.




                                Then it was Downtown Disney for dinner then back to Magic Kingdom for Spectromagic and Wishes - because I love fireworks!













                                Then it was time to call it a night. Just like it is now.

                                        Because you asked so nicely -

                                        Day 3 Epocot and Mickey's Not So Scary Party



                                        We had just gotten off Mission Space and they announced the launch, so we waited outside.


                                        Drinks from around the world



                                        Signs everywhere in case you get lost. I like this.




                                        A rare picture of me - Visiting Figment




                                        We waited a while before the Monorail came along. I do like that the water is falling the wrong way.



                                        Nemo is lost and found again!


                                        Found Nemo!





                                        Fast Passes... er, pass.



                                        We had dinner in France then Mousercise and I hurried to the Magic Kingdom because the Not So Scary Party had started and we didn't want to miss the fireworks! and if you've ever seen one of my Disneyland trip reports you know I love Parades!



                                        Made it just in time for the first parade








                                        I somehow thought the dog was smaller



                                        These guys were neat. I loved the shovels on the street making sparks




                                        Some guy watching the parade near us had one of those blind the world flashes, which was both annoying and benificial. It made my camera confused.

                                        After the parade we rode on the Haunted Mansion then found the group waiting for the Parade in front of the castle. That was fun, sharing it again with them.
                                        Hallowishes!











                                        We watched the Villains show in front of the castle then went to Toon Town. As we walked through Toon Town it started to sprinkle, we reached Tomorrowland as it began to pour. It was as if they skies opened. Mousercise and I made a break for it as it let up briefly making it as far as Main Street. We decided to brave it and made it to the buses. Most were waiting for the rain to stop so we were able to sit on the way back to the room.
