We made some friends at the French Market:
Then headed to one of my favorite rides - The Haunted Mansion
When I'm bored in line, I tend to take a lot of pictures of random things.
And inside, I used my phone because I put everything else away:
Then we headed to Fantasyland so I could mark a few more things off of my To Do List.
First, we got in line for the Storybookland Canals
And I noticed a duck on the monorail track
And since the line was longer than I expected and INCREDIBLY claustrophobic, I again passed the time taking random pictures.
And there was this mama duck with a group of babies!
Which made me wonder if that was their daddy on the track. I mean, if I had that many babies running around, I might stand on the monorail track, too. (Kidding!!!)
Back to the ride. After maybe 20-25 minutes, we were packing into a boat full of parents holding small children. Then we were sent off to be swallowed up by Monstro.
I entertained myself with taking more pictures, as there's not really much else to do on this ride. The operator of the boat was indeed speaking, but I could hear nothing over the overly loud Spanish being spoken around me and screaming children. (No, I have nothing against speaking Spanish, that just happens to be what was being spoken. Loudly.)
I thought the miniatures were neat, and was impressed with the foliage. However, I would not rush to ride this again. I'm glad I did it once.
Next we went to Casey Jr.'s Circus Train. This is another ride neither of us had ever done, and in fact we didn't even know where the entrance was for it. We eventually found it, and it's in kind of an awkward area. We had an especially long wait for this ride (I'd expect a 5-10 minute wait for this ride...) of 30-35 minutes. A train's mic had apparently broken, decreasing the load speed. Thanks to the long wait, you all get to enjoy my excessive amount of pictures taken while waiting.
I had fun looking for "Mickeys" in the flowers
Have I mentioned I'm obsessed with these pink trees?
They have neat lamps for this attraction. I'm always amazed at the light fixtures in the park.
Finally, our train has arrived!
We tried to get the caboose, as we were the second party in line. Unfortunately the family in front of us took it. Oh well!
Another ride I'm happy to have ridden once, and I won't be rushing back to do it again. It's off the To Do List!
I'll end this segment with a random shot of the Matterhorn (the sky was SO pretty!).
Next up, I get some advice from Shrunken Ned, and am granted a special privilege from a very well known CM.
