Magic Kingdom Update

As I twittered, I hit the Magic Kingdom on Saturday to see what changes the new year had brought. As it turns out, not much. I guess it takes a big place like Walt Disney World a few weeks to fully switch over from one promotion to another. That makes sense.

I did see a few small signs of the 2009 “What Will You Celebrate?” promotion. For instance, a couple booths at the Ticket and Transportation Center had some decorations indicating this is where you go to get your Free Admission or Birthday Fun Card.

Additionally, in the parks any location that is listed as fastpass, but was not offering fastpass for the day had a special sign up and one open terminal for those who choose the fastpass+ option for their birthday gift.

Once in the park, things were nice. The park was busier than usual in the morning, but real crowds didn’t materialize until early afternoon. By then we were wrapping up our day. We had a nice ride on the ponies.

Then went over to ToonTown Fair to have another visit with the fairies in Pixie Hollow. We entered the queue 20 minutes before the fairies were scheduled to open up their land to guests and there were already a number of families in front of us. By the time we left, the queue had grown very long. It’s a very slow moving queue too, so those families were in for quite a wait.

Celebrating A Birthday at Disneyland

Ron is an Annual Passholder to Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA. His birthday was Friday the 2nd and he decided to spend it at Disneyland and take advantage of the special offer that’s part of the new “What Will You Celebrate?” promotion.

I’ve asked Ron to provide us with some details of how the day went. Considering it was the second day of the promotion, it sounds like everything went swell.

Got in late from a great day at Disneyland so this is the first chance I’ve had to send you an update from our birthday experience. Either good or bad, there isn’t a whole lot to tell about the birthday promotion but I’ll do my best to provide as much detail as possible.
