The Magic Kingdom comes alive...

Judy and I are back in Frostproof tonight, after leaving Disney World just after lunch this afternoon. What a fantastic trip with had visiting Mickey, and Garry and Shelley! We had a blast!

We spent all of yesterday, from 8:00 a.m. until about 10:30 p.m. at the Magic Kingdom, only coming back to our Resort for Dinner and refreshments in the later part of the afternoon.

Of course we started the day off at the Magic Kingdom by having our own personal audience with non other than Mickey Mouse. Mickey was in fine form, and if your are not aware, as I was not aware...Mickey now talks! This is a recent event, and we had a great time conversing with him.

We enjoyed a terrific day at the Park, under the most ideal weather conditions you could dream up! Perfect!

Of course we rode the "It's a Small World, Afterall..." ride, and ended up with that crazy song stuck in our heads for the day! Above is our "selfie"...

It is an iconic ride that never seems to get old...

We took in the show at "The Hall of Presidents!" This was very well done, with each U.S. President introduced to you...

We stay in Polk County, Florida, and it was nice to meet James Polk!

We rode the Walt Disney World Railway, The Pirates of the Caribbean, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, went in The Haunted Mountain, cruised The Jungle Cruise, took the Peter Pan Flight, road the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, got wet on Splash Mountain, were amazed at Stitch's Great Escape, laughed at Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor, and rode the People Mover! Whew... now you know why I am tired tonight!

I took a whole bunch of pictures, and some neat videos, and I am sure most readers have been there, and done all that, but what the heck, I am just going to post them all radomly here, and you can pick and choose, or just plain ignore them and carry on!

We went back to the Park after dinner, and I really enjoyed the evening light parade, which I will post pictures of, and the fireworks display was simply amazing. They also now do an unbelievable laser light projection right on the Magic Castle as a backdrop that I simply cannot explain to you how it works, but you just have to go and see it.

Anyways, enjoy the pics and videos....make up any titles or comments yourself.


Whew... there you go, if you are still with me after that....

Till tomorrow...

(oh, just want to thank Garry and Shelley once more for all the hospitality they showed us over the past couple day...you go above and beyond, and just like Walt Disney, you do nothing small! Have a safe trip back up to Ontario!)



  1. What a fun looking day. Sure liked those night pics!

    John, if you check my blog tomorrow morning, I'll show you how to get rid of that Robot Word Verification for your comments, o.k.

  2. Excellent posting, love the pics, brings back memories of our trip there years ago.

  3. It is never a dull time at Disneyworld or Disneyland (out here in the west). Nice photos of your day and evening out.
