Pre IAAPA 2008: The Mouse and How I Learned to Love Him 11/15/08

Associated parks:

Food Court mouse waffles at the Port Orleans, and off to EPCOT to uselast night's fast pass to ride Test Track. Always a good time. 8.5/10.

Then to Magic Kingdom. Hopped the monorail over, and hot Casey's for ahot dog. Nice idea with the wheat roll. 7/10. Off to Winnie the Pooh.Great ride. 8/10. Haunted Mansion, 10 min wait. 9/10. Then to ThunderMountain, 8.5/10. Then to my favorite, Splash Mountain, 40 min wait.10/10. Gotta keep movin' along!

Then to Pirates, 8.5/10. 15 min wait. Then the train to Toontown, and awalk along that secret trail between the Autopia and Space Mt. Quitepeacefull like Cedar Point's hidden boardwalk. 20 min wait for Autopia.7/10. Then to Space Mountain. 9/10. Somewhat agressive, like a coastershould be. 15 min wait for Buzz Lightyear, 8/10.

Then to Fantasyland to ride Snow White for the first time. 6/10. Now Ido not need to see the movie every again. Then the monorail back, withpeople treating it like a Tokyo rush hour. Should there be a strollerlimit per day? Maybe.

Overall, Magic Kingdom was in fine shape, and ready for IAAPA. All wasopen, and all was well. Many wheelchairs on the rides, and they wereready and pleasantly placed on the rides. I did not fast pass a singlerides, and hit the big tickets. Ended the evening with a great BahamaBreezes dinner. Staying on property is the way to go. Overall, 9/10.Zip a dee do dah, zip pa dee day!

I'm surprised they let you use a fast pass that was a day expired. I have seen them let people use them if they go past your window however I have also seem them turn people away if it was the wrong day on the pass. I guess it all depends on how close the employee is paying attention when you hand them the pass. I agree staying on property is the way to go. Although next time I will be renting a car because I am tired of being on an overcroweded bus with people who smell and dont care about anybody else but themselves.

I got tired of the smelly overcrowded bus situation, too. So, I booked a more expensive hotel this time. :)

I'm surprised that everything was so empty for Christmas. I was down there for Christmas one year, and it was absolutely insane. You got pretty lucky. Wish I could have been there. Sounds like a great time.
