Magic Kingdom Trip Report

I spent a long day at the Magic Kingdom Saturday. Summer crowds were evident, but it wasn’t oppressive. If anything it might have been a little lighter than usual. But that may be related to changed vacation patterns with the holiday weekend coming up.

Sadly, the park appears to be cutting back on some of the simplest maintenance. Many attractions were covered in litter. Splash Mountain was particularly bad with water bottles and gum on nearly every surface. We went on Splash 5 minutes after opening too, so there was no excuse not to clean up during the over night shift.

Ended the night with a viewing of Spectromagic. They’ve slowly been upgrading this old parade and last night I noticed a ton of new costumes. It’s still a great parade, but it could use some additional sprucing up and perhaps a new float or two. Technology has advanced so far since when it was created, you know there is some out of this world stuff they could be doing.

I’ve put a few photos down below and more up on Flickr for your browsing pleasure.

Cody’s Trip: Day 1 – And so it begins (eventually)

Some of you might have been wondering where I have been since it has been quite some time since I have written a blog. Do not worry, I have not been eaten by reptilian-man creatures nor have I finally realized that there exists this thing called “life”. No, I have spent a week and a half down at Walt Disney World, enjoying the Florida sun while my friends were treated to the snow and freezing cold weather up north.

So without further ado, read on for a detailed look at my vacation including a wealth of useless information, amusing stores, thrilling adventures, and an opinion or two. It’s worth it. Trust me.
