I started to talk about the
Main Street Electrical Parade
last time, but ran over my word count. I wonder how in the world that happened.
I like the Electrical Parade a little more than SpectroMagic because the Electrical
Parade is made up of big lighted floats. SpectroMagic contains more live
performers, which are consequently harder to see. I also like the music of the Electrical
Parade; it gives the parade an old-fashioned feel.
After the parade, the Wishes fireworks started, but it began with something different. I couldn't see this part as well, but
various colors. It also showed images of park guests enjoying their day, and a
picture of Mark and I was taken the day we left(sad face) on The Many Adventures
of Winnie the Pooh. Then we saw the fireworks, which I'm still partial to over
the Cinderella Castle ones. I'm
most partial to the Illuminations display. After the fireworks, we made our slow
way out of the park, and back to Pop Century. Washington DC
On day five we planned to go to Epcot for reruns, but changed that to MGM. We had reservations for Via
Napoli the following day, so we decided to
wait until then. I didn't get the audio descriptive device this time because I heard
everything it had to say last time.
I think we rode
times, Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster twice, and saw the film Walt Disney: One Man’s
Dream. I liked the film because it paralleled the biography of Walt which I
had. When you first entered the building where the movie was showing, there
were a number of models of various attractions, most of which I could see to 1 degree
or another. Tower of Terror
We saw Muppet Vision 3-D, and went on the Great Movie Ride again. As much as I like the ride, I wish the drivers would vary their extemporaneous speech just a little because it gets tiresome after a few rides to hear the same corny lines. I realize for most of the ride they have to stick to a script, but the off-the-cuff remarks don't have to be scripted. Unfortunately, we didn't get to do Toy Story Mania again, so I couldn't clobber my mother with a higher score.
Then we took a bus to the
to do some
rides we hadn’t the first time. We saw Country Bear Jamboree, rode Magic Kingdom , not
getting as wet as I would've liked, and the Splash Mountain , of course.
Given our low expectations, all except my father, the first time we saw Country
Bear Jamboree quite a few years ago, it exceeded them greatly. We go back every
time we're at Walt Disney World to see it because it is so humorous. Haunted Mansion
Back to the present… Yesterday, July 28, we went to see our cousins, dropped off some snacks, and went to Applebee's for lunch. Matthew and Brandon seem to be obsessed with spiderman, and Matthew and Brandon apparently drew him. For some reason my parents and Mark never showed me the pictures, and I can't imagine why. I had a spinach and shrimp salad with bacon dressing, and it was tasty.
