Love for the Mouse
We had a blast at Disney without the kids! We only ended up with a few hours at the Magic Kingdom on Friday (I hit a traffic jam on the way back from working), but we made the highlights - Buzz Lightyear, Stitch's Escape, Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, Snow White and of course, Wishes - the fireworks show. We also made our own custom Mickey ears. Mine were pink with fake fur on the edge - silver ears with rhinestones all around the edges, Minnie on each ear, and an "Its my birthday" sticker with a crown on top. Kathy's was similar.
We each got a "its my birthday" badge when we got our free admission - which caused every single "cast member" (employee) to say "Happy Birthday Megan" all day long. What fun!
On Saturday we had a blast at Disney Hollywood Studios. We woke up early for Extra Magical Hours and managed to ride 2x on the Rock n Roller Coaster - oh my Gosh- amazing - 0 to 60mph in like 2 seconds. AWESOME! We also got on Toy Story Mania - SOOOOOOO FUN. You get to shoot at carnival style shooting targets and play against your riding partner. It was really fun. We also saw the High School Musical 3 show, the parade, rode the Great Movie Ride, saw the Magic of Animation, Muppets 3d (welcome to my paaahhhk), etc. We didn't do Tower of Terror, as I am just not into falling rides.
I highly recommend the Disney free on your birthday gig. It was really great, such a blast!
