It was a cloudy and rainy day, so we decided to spend our first day at Walt Disney World at the Magic Kingdom, since most of it is indoors. The crowds were very light, so we were able to get into all of our favorite places in a short time. By 1:00, the rains had moved over the area and we went back to our room at the French Quarter - made to look like a New Orleans hotel.
Mickey and Minnie Mouse welcome everyone to the Magic Kingdom and Ciinderella's Castle
The entry is always planted in seasonal flowers, but always with Mickey's face!
Even if you don't want to buy it, you can always try it on for a photo op!
The famous “spitting camel” spews water at passers-by!
Our son's favorite ride - Pirates of the Caribbean
This is a huge pirate ship inside the venue, but it's pitch dark and you're riding in a moving boat. I thought the shot was great until I got it on the screen and it's blurry as can be, but my son will love it!
So it can be translated: “To Err is Human, to ARR is Pirate!”
Our daughter's favorite ride - the Haunted Mansion
A floating holographic head - I'm sure other riders were furious that I was taking flash photos inside the ride. My flash showed up some of the “wires” that helped her float!
Larry's favorite ride - It's a Small World. I saw this ride at the 1964 World's Fair in New York City. The Disney Company had designed it for Pepsi with the contingent that it would become part of a new project Disney was doing in Florida - Walt Disney World!
Je voulais prendre une photo de la section consacrée à la France pour mes amis français ….
A $4 ice cream sandwich, but it's in the shape of Mickey, so it's worth every cent!
At the end of the Buzz Lightyear ride, they show you photos that they took of you during the ride, which you can buy - or you can just take a photo of their photo! We were concentrating on hitting the targets - Larry beat me by 30,000 points!
Then, the rains came and everyone ran for the exit canopies!
The rain even made the ducks run for cover!
This pretty hitching post still had raindrops on it, even after the sun came out at the hotel
And, when the sun came out, so did the real horses and drivers who took the hotel customers around the grounds
