We decided to take Magic Kingdom slow, one of the awesome things about having the luxury of time. We rode the TTA Peoplemover and the Carousel of Progress before deciding it was time for lunch. On our way to the front of the park, we stopped for the Main Street Trolley Parade. It was my first time ever seeing the show in person, but I already knew the music well. Then we walked right down the middle of Main Street USA to take the monorail to the Poly for lunch at Captain Cook's!
At Captain Cook's, I had a turkey club and (of course) a Dole Whip for dessert - self serve! (Sorry Rikki, neither of us had the adult grilled cheese. I wasn't crazy about the bleu cheese inside.) We explored the Poly a bit (I'd love to stay there some day!), and then we decided to head to James' favorite resort, the Contemporary. We explored there a bit, and suddenly we hit a wall. We were just exhausted, and we almost fell asleep on a couch on the conference floor of the resort. James decided that we needed to get up, so we headed over to Epcot, where we would have a tweet-up later on that day. We rode Ellen's Energy Adventure, and James promptly fell asleep. Later he asked me, "So what happens after the dinosaur room?"

After Coral Reef, we found out that JL and her crew were still in the park, and they were thinking of heading over to Magic Kingdom like we were. We met back up, and we drove over there, listening to the very beginnings of Inner Mouse. Upon arriving, Magic Kingdom was PACKED, and we were actually escorted around Main Street (meaning back stage!) to get to Tomorrowland. While back there, James had his first Neurotic Disney Moment, exclaiming "this is epic!" as we walked through. When we reached Tomorrowland, JL's kids almost convinced little, wimpy me to get on Space Mountain, but luckily the 70 minute wait saved me.
