21st March 2012 (Day 10): Magic Kingdom

magic-kingdom-logoHeading towards the end of our trip and we took a trip to visit the Magic Kingdom.  We had just bought a 2 day Disney ticket, having used our first day at Animal Kingdom, and this was the second use of that ticket.

Magic Kingdom seemed to be a long way off and driving in we finally got a hint we were going the right way.

Though of course even once you park your journey isn’t at an end and you still have to get the tram from the parking lot to the entrance and then the boat or monorail into the park itself. But we eventually made it just when there was a Dance Party happening.

After that we took a few posed pictures in front of the castle.  Think Rosemary was happy to be here.

We weren’t planning many rides but thought that one ride was a must, which was “It’s a Small World”.

We had a spot of lunch at the Cheshire Cat Cafe and had some cereal which went down very nicely.

After that we had a walk around the park taking some photos and seeing the sights.  Particularly liked this one of the balloons.

We caught the afternoon parade which was a lot of fun and got a really nice viewing spot just opposite the Hall of Presidents.

We did a spot of shopping and trying on some ears after the parade.

After that Rosemary flaked out and we decided to call it a day at the park.

For dinner we headed back to Red Lobster and had a very nice started of Lobster, Gruyere and Spinach dip which went down very well with the red tortilla chips.
