Magic Kingdom Reopens!
The Magic Kingdom reopened to the public on Saturday and it was great! Yes, it was different, but not so much that you couldn’t enjoy the day. And the crowds were so low!
You can find our podcast, number 112, here on Podbean, iTunes, Spotify, MyTuner, and ListenNotes. My most thorough comments on the Magic Kingdom are there, so be sure to check it out. Also, know that there are more podcasts coming this week, so be sure to subscribe!
From Main Street U.S.A. to Tron
We’re walking right down the middle of Main Street U.S.A. from the park’s entrance through the castle, down Fantasyland and over to Storybook Circus where we take a good look at the amazing construction on Tron. You all have no idea how epic this attraction will be. Check out to check out the following video:
In the course of a day I visited 22 attractions! I would have easily visited all of them if they were all open, and if the park had not both rained out and closed early. This is the order I visited them. I don’t recommend that order, but it was
- The Barnstormer
- Tomorrowland Raceway
- Astro Oriber
- Peter Pan’s Flight
- Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train
- Big Thunder Mountain
- Country Bear Jamboree
- The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
- Enchanted Tiki Room
- Pirates of the Caribbean
- The Hall of Presidents
- Haunted Mansion
- Jungle Cruise
- Splash Mountain
- The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
- Space Mountain
- Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
- Mad Tea Party
- Dumbo the Flying Elephant
- Under the Sea–Journey of the Little Mermaid
- Prince Charming Regal Carrousel
- “it’s a small world”
What was the longest wait? Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train at 20 minutes (stated 30) Everything else was nearly a walk on.
Of all this, what were the highlights! It was great being back on Pirates, even if it isn’t my favorite version.
Splash Mountain was a welcome experience as it was hot and muggy.
I love the Astro Orbiter. And it was fun riding on the simple attractions that I don’t spend enough time on.
I would not have done Buzz Lightyear except that I wanted to see how many attractions I could do. I was surprised! And on an upcoming podcast I’ll share why.
Lunch was at Skipper’s Canteen. It was a perfect respite to the heat, and with social distancing, you almost feel you have the place to yourself.
I also took the chance to see the castle up close. My thoughts? I’ll share that on a future post/podcast.
