Well everyone, this is the one we've all been waiting on.

We were going to arrive early and leave at 3pm then come back another day to finish it. We all went; Me, Linz, Hami, Kerr, Lewi, Greta and Ken. Took a long time to get in as Magic Kingdom was PACKED!!!!!!!!!!!!

They all went to a sweet shop and I went to get a double buggy, in past times we would have used Disney's cable cars to get around, but they have been stopped (big minus methinks).

We all met in the Main Street near the entrance, Hamish and I went to Tomorrowland, while Linz, Kerr, Lewis, Greta and Ken went to Mickey's Toontown Fair.

Hamish and I went directly to Space Mountain and started to quewe, only to find out that it was BROKEN and would be open later. Luckily we had a FASTPASS so it didn't really matter.

We went to ASTRO ORBITER, where we decide if we fly up or down and are spun round and round above all of Tomorrowland. This was good fun. As soon as we got off this we checked back at SPACE MOUNTAIN, which was just opening as we got there (so we got on first). Hamish and I agreed that this was the highlight of the morning - IT WAS AWSEOME!!! We followed the track through the 'Launch Area' seeing stars and rockets etc... all the way to the Rockets, then when on board - we then were taken in to a launch area where we took off into the darkness - this is a great pitch black roller coaster (oops sorry space rocket). THIS IS A MUST

After doing a few more rides (seven to be exact) we went to Toontown to meet the gang, unfortunately Mum (Greta) had injured her back and had to take the next train out of the park, Ken obviously went with her, leaving us as a fivesome.

We moved to Fantasyland and went to the best show in the park, we all LOVED it; MICKEY'S PHILHARMAGIC. It is a 3d screen show where Donald Duck steals the magic hat and it follows his adventures with several of the Disney charecters. All 3d. Kerr was clapping and dancing throughout the whole thind, he found it especially funny when things came towards him from the screen, sqealing with delight.
At the end Donald is propelled towards the crowd and flies through the air hitting the wall behind the crowd, where the Disney cast have a big set of Donald's feet which pertrude from the wall. BEST SHOW IN THE PARK.

We went on to THE MANY ADVENTURES OF WINNIE THE POOH next for Hamish, the Fastpass came in to its own here as the quewe was 2 hours - we got in within 3 minutes. Hamish and the Twins loved this. I bought Hamish a Best Friends Winnie the Pooh T-shirt, he was delighted.

Luckily, Lindsay had packed a lunch in a freezer box and it was a great idea - Disney charge a Hell of a Lot for food (this is echoed throughout all teme parks in Florida), so this packed lunch worked very well and let us spend our cash on toys etc...

We did most of the rides in Fantasyland, including Peter Pan, Small World, Tea Party, Philarmagic all were really good.

Onwards to LIBERTY SQUARE where we went to the HAUNTED MANSION; we grouped together in a room with no doors, and the pictures on the walls grow and watch you, creepy voices and strange things happen, then you are ushered through a secret exit onto a ride, where you see ghosts dancing and generally having fun. This was quite an event as our ride seat broke down next to a scary looking ghost bride with an axe. We were there fore approx. 5 mins while it was fixed. It was fun.

By this time it was closing on 6pm. So we went to FRONTIERLAND, where Daddy and Hamish went on SPLASH MOUNTAIN and BIG THUNDER MOUNTAIN. Hamish had been asking to go on Thunder Mountain all day, but to be honest, Splash Mountain was better. We got chatting to an Oriental man and his son, who were basically doing the same ride circuit us us, all 4 of us had a great time on Slash Mountain and got completely soaked.
To dry off we went to Thunder Mountain, although this is a good ride, it's not as good as Splash Mountain or Space Mountain, but it was still good.

We headed to ADVENTURELAND because Mummy wanted to go on the PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN ride, which again, got stuck for a couple of minutes but was worth seeing. It was strange to see the updated models, the last time I was there, there was no Jack Sparrow or any reference to the movie, but it all revolves around it now.

It was getting close to 7pm by now and we had done most of the park, but I had to go back to TOMORROWLAND 'cause I'm a big kid....

We all went to the LAUGH FLOOR COMEDY CLUB, which is a stage style show hosted by Mike Wazowski (the wee green bloke with 1 eye). It's like Who's Line Is It Anyway but all done as a cartoon. They interact with the audience (it's really cool to see cartoon charecters interact with people in the crowd). This was really good.

The final ride we went on was BUZZ LIGHTYEAR'S SPACE RANGER SPIN. This was a good end to the day, we sit in little space ships with lazer guns and shoot all the baddies giving us a score at the end. All the baddies had targets on them and the whole ride was done in bright flourecent colours, great for the kids.

Apart from Mum hurting herself and having to leave, this was a great day we spent a lot longer here than we expected, but it was a great day and we did pretty much all of the rides that we wanted to do.

A note to all users - FASTPASS WORKS VERY, VERY WELL - IT REALLY IS A MUST

I appreciate that this blog is the biggest that I have done so far, but this was the biggest day. I used to love SeaWorld but Disney seem far more organised in dealing with families, credit where due - DISNEY RULES
