<p>Day Two: The Magic Kingdom</p>
<p>We opted for the ferry to take us to the park, and although I love the Magic Kingdom, I get so overwhelmed by it, because I feel like it’s the biggest park at the resort, with the most to do, and we were on a limited time frame, because it was closing at 7pm that night for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. It would have been fun to stay and participate, but there’s no way my dad would have lasted, and he surely would have complained if we spent $67 each to stay until midnight. </p>
<p>After catching a bit of the morning parade, we started in Tomorrowland, where the Little Guy met Buzz Lightyear, and with some teamwork, he and I earned a maybe respectable score at the Buzz Lightyear game/attraction. The Little Guy was too short to do the Stitch attraction, and we didn’t take advantage of the Child Swap thing for it, because the cast members in Tomorrowland were being a little rude, so we just decided “next time.” The Monsters, Inc., attraction was entertaining—surprisingly hilarious even—and I’m curious to know how they pull it off. We ended things in this area with the race cars (I stepped on the gas, and the Little Guy steered), before taking a mental note of what was left in the vicinity to see and do, before we raced over to Fantasyland to use our Fast Pass for It’s a Small World. The afternoon before, I caved and got a Magic Band, and downloaded the My Disney Experience app. I paired my parents and my mom’s cousin to my account, and the night before planned our Fast Passes for the week. </p>
<p>I’ve never been the kind of person whose skin crawls when they hear the song in the It’s a Small World ride. It actually makes me feel like, “okay…NOW I’m at Disney World.” I sort of feel comforted, and think if something happens and we have to leave, at least we did It’s a Small World.
Before backtracking to where we were before, we noticed the line for the carousel was short, and he Little Guy LOVES carousels, so we hopped on. Later, we did the Dumbo ride, and that kid was flying up and down like a crazed pilot.</p>
