This day of our trip had originally been set aside for more time at Hollywood Studios, but with so little for LJ to do there we decided to head back to the Magic Kingdom and tackle some more attractions since we spent so much time on our first day exploring the new Fantasyland (and the Baby Care Center). We thankfully were running a little more on schedule this morning and I was able to catch the opening of the Magic Kingdom, singing the Good Morning song is really my favourite way to start a day!
Good Mornin', Good Mornin', it's great to stay up late. Good Mornin', Good Mornin' to you!
Our first task was to grab a FastPass for Space Mountain. I waited at the hub while Jim went to collect these (these FastPasses are now a thing of the past at Magic Kingdom, so no more need for running across the park all day) and I was amazed at the number of people who were taking photos of the castle and partners statue. I made a mental note to not come near the hub at that time of the day again – a pre-park breakfast reservation for photo taking in an empty park just became a lot more appealing!
Once Jim found us again in the swarm of people we hightailed it to the empty Frontierland for a spin on the wildest ride in the wilderness – Big Thunder Mountain!
