Disney’s Magic Kingdom Again

After spending not one but two consecutive days in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we decided to return to Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

There were some favorites which we wanted to visit as well as some attractions which we did not have time to enjoy on our first day in what many refer to as the happiest place on earth. We arrived at Magic Kingdom very early in the day to avoid the crowds for the most popular attractions on our list.

The first attraction we visited was the Jungle Cruise. It had been many years since we had enjoyed this attraction.

We waited for the special boat, the Wamba Wanda with the specialized wheel chair platform.

I had forgotten how fun this attraction is; the guide’s shtick was very funny. He had all of the people on our boat laughing a lot.

As well, I could be mistaken but there seemed to be more things to see during the approximately 12 minute boat ride.

After we enjoyed the Jungle Cruise we went next door to go on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.

This was another which typically has large lines so it is a good idea to get to it very early in the day.

Next we headed over to Main Street U.S.A.

We had made an appointment at the working Harmony Barber Shop, located beside the Fire Hall to have my daughter’s hair cut with Pixie Dust on top.

While we waited, we saw a very cute parade go by on Main Street U.S.A.

We also visited some of the local shops like this one.

There were some wonderful Disney art on display as well as other items I had not seen in any other Disney store.

After the haircut, we were on our way over to the Starlight Cafe to have lunch. It started to rain so we ducted into Monsters Inc. Laugh Factory. It was a slightly different show than the one we saw a few days earlier.

The place was packed except on the group of counters where we wanted to order our meal!

The salad was excellent as was the thick turkey sandwich.

Next, we were trying to may our way back and it started to rain again so, yes, once again we ducked into Monsters Inc. Laugh Factory for another slightly different show.

Once this was done we were able to arrive at our destination, Mickey’s PhilharMagic, the wonderful 3D short movie which is always quite enjoyable.

On our way back down Main Street U.S.A. to the park’s exit, we enjoyed many of the store front window displays such as the Snow White window display picture above.

Back to Animal Kingdom for Dinner

We weren’t terribly hungry, so after arriving back at our room at Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo House we went to the casual dining restaurant of Mara.

Here we enjoyed some delicious food.

Mine was the Lamb Stew which was one of the daily specials; it was quite tasty.

My daughter had chicken Cesar salad which came with a large amount of chicken.

Once finished we called it a day.

    I was on the Wamba Wanda many years ago with my husband and my kids.

    The kids thought it was the awesomest thing they had ever seen. Me and my husband loved it too.

    I really need to go back there sometime.

    Ahh… memories!
