Early as the morning broke, we arose to the gentle rush of the soft Florida breeze and the harsher rush of Brett brushing off Illuminations grime in the shower. We began the day at about 10 in the Magic Kingdom, the handsome parent to the red-headed step-child known as the Animal Kingdom. After connecting with Tim and Marie, who obtained something I refer to as “Ha ha, look at us pass you in line whenever we want” Fastpasses, we quickly moved into Tomorrowland. Donning our WDW Fan Boys T-shirts, we gained the interest and attention of several Cast Members early in the day. For those of you who saw us in our shirts and didn’t stop to say hello, prepare to be offended in a future show. Early in the day, we connected with Mr. and Mrs. Zack, who were very congenial and don’t deserve any sort of oppression at all. They also took a mildly controversial anti-polio stance. We moved on to the Space Mountain and waited in a relatively short standby line. I’m personally enjoying the games you can play in some (two) of the Disney attractions. They space out the line movement perfectly and pass the time very efficiently. During our wait in the line, we briefly got to see the lights come on as the ride was down. After the lights came back, I believe the ride was fueled by the cheers of the heartened proletariat.
After Space Mountain, we headed to the TTAP and recorded a live bit on the ride that you’re to hear soon. After TTAP, we had a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow, wishing for laser discs and car phones. We then decided to take a break from Tomorrowland and headed to Pecos Bills for wraps, raps (PUMP UP THE VOLUME, DANCE DANCE!) and burgers. We then headed to the best attraction on property, I beat the crap out of a hitchhiking ghost (he didn’t pay the shipping cost for his WDW Fan Boys t-shirt) and photobombed Lou Mongello. Yes, you read that correctly. Tim spotted Lou recording a video bit in Liberty Square and Brett and I combined our marketing minds and stood behind the camera pointing at our t-shirts. Hey, bad publicity is still publicity, right? After the incident, Brett was kind enough to direct traffic around Lou so he could finish recording his bit uninterrupted.
We had a chance to hand our standard business card to Lou Mongello and weren’t surprised at all when he exchanged a holographic business card.
Lou, if you happen to read this, we really did enjoy meeting you and look forward to speaking with you soon!
We then headed to Jungle Cruise and enjoyed the charismatic monologue of our skipper, David and ignored the interruptive dialogue of our Fanboy, Brett. After the Cruise, we footed our way through Adventureland for some Dole Whips (you’re welcome, Scott) and Pirates of the Caribbean. After footing our way back to Tomorrowland, we headed to Monsters Inc Laugh Floor, where Tim was sorely disappointed that his joke was not repeated and we were all sorely disappointed that Brett continued to tell his jokes in mixed company. As you can see, our touring plan bears no resemblance to anything like an intelligible way to tour a park, which is why we headed from Tomorrowland back into Fantasyland to see Mickey’s PhilharMagic, Winnie the Pooh and Peter Pan. We then continued back into Liberty Square to see the updated (yes, I know it was awhile ago) Hall of Presidents and I was quite impressed with the Obama animatronic. After a final ride through the Haunted Mansion in the evening, the rain began. And it rained, and it rained and it rained.. So much that we unfortunately missed Main Street Electrical Parade for the evening. Though we saw Wishes through a thick veil of smoke that eventually masked Cinderella’s Castle from sight, the rain forced us out of the park for a wet, though entirely satisfying, evening.
