More Pics, More Pics!
Just a few more pics of the Magic Kingdom, but these were good ones. The first here is moi, noshing on churros, one of the top ten reasons to go to a Disney theme park. :P (A churro is a dessert-type pastry that is covered with sugar and cinnamon.) I didn't actually EAT all these churros, but someone handed me 14 of them to hold (one for everyone in our party), and one of my friends snapped a pic of me being silly. It turned out GREAT! Hahah! Unfortunately, I personally had only 2 churros my entire Disney World trip and I'm upset that I didn't meet my churro quota. LOL It seems as if churros can only be found in the Magic Kingdom, and even then, the churro carts were few and far between. :( That was a big boo from Disneyland in Anaheim, which seems to have a churro cart on every corner. We couldn't even find a cart that MADE the churros on site like they do in D-land. AND we couldn't find any churros in any of the other parks aside from the Magic Kingdom. Very sad, that. Anyhow, enough of my yabbering and on with the funny churro pic.
Here is a pic of our entire group taken by some random guy when we were waiting to be called for our dinner reservations at the Crystal Palace. The Crystal Palace was the BEST buffet I've ever been to, and I grew up in Nevada. Sorry, Las Vegas! The food was YUMMY. Not only that, but the dinner also has "character", their tagline, not mine. LOL Pooh and the gang comes out during your dinner and visits each and every table for a photo-op. Because of this, you MUST make reservations months in advance for this place. We were damned lucky to get a party of 14 squeezed in there. As it was, we didn't all sit at the same table. Too many fricken' people. But here we are.
In the back row we have Damon and Monica, Kevin and Val, and Jim and Becka. Second row is baby Kaylee, Hannah and Miriam. In the front row is Chase, Levi, Simone poking out her head, Daniel, and Samantha. Yup. Eight children. We didn't even bother with a name count. Every few minutes each of us would merely count heads. We got 8? Yup! Let's go! We totally could have had someone else's kid and we wouldn't have known. LOL
Yet another pic of the castle, but from the backside. On the right is a 3D show called Mickey's PhilharMagic. This is a show where you put on the little polarized glasses and watch the cartoons come at you. Disney is so much cooler than the 3D glasses of yesteryear. No one does the red and blue glasses anymore. But the PhilharMagic show was THE BEST 3D show I've seen at Disney. Better than Honey, I Shrunk the Audience, better than the Bug's Life show, better than Muppets 3D (which we saw at MGM Studios), better than Captain EO, of course, it doesn't take much to be better than that one. LOL It doesn't even play anymore (obvious) but I just had to list it, since it was a 3D show. But this show revolves around Donald stealing Mickey's magician's apprentice hat and wreaking havoc throughout the different Disney movies. The screen widens to the very walls of the theater, and the audience is literally immersed in the action. If you go to the Magic Kindgom, do NOT miss Mickey's PhilharMagic in Fantasyland. :)
That's it! More to come later.
