Ready for day 2 in the Magic Kingdom! Since we spent the first day in Fantasyland, we decided to spend our time in Frontierland. Of course Pluto was at the front of the park again, and Caroline wanted to see him. Since the line was pretty short we waited, but Matthew wanted to ride the Barnstormer again so he and Brian did that. I think they rode it three times in a row!
We met up with the boys and had to squeeze in a few more Dumbo rides before heading to Frontierland. Matthew and I had fast passes for Thunder Mountain. He was excited because it was a train roller coaster, but that quickly faded when the first section of the ride was dark wand had bats. He spent a lot of it with his head buried. I hoped he had a little fun, but when we got off he said that he never wanted to do that again. Oh well, you win some you lose some. Brian took the girls on Aladdin's magic carpets and that went much better. To get out of the heat we visited the tiki hut next. Caroline definitely thought the birds were real and kept asking why they were singing and talking. The next part of our day was spent on Tom Sawyer's island. The kids loved it! There were all sorts of forts and trails around the island and they ran all over. Matthew loved the rifles that you could pretend to shoot out of the fort. They weren't happy when it was time to take the riverboat back, but we had a fast pass deadline to meet!
Our second fast pass of the day was for the Jungle Cruise. Definitely a good call using a fast pass, the standby line was super long! Caroline's favorite part was the scene where the gorillas knocked over a car and were ransacking a campsite. She talked about it the rest of the day! Both kids really enjoyed it, and Brian and I enjoyed the humor of our boat captain. We had a few snacks on the boat, but the hungry monsters needed some lunch. We thought Mexican would be a good choice for a quick lunch that the kids would like. Well, they liked it, but for some reason the man working behind the counter had a lot of trouble figuring out everyone's order. I saw our food sitting back there, and tried to tell him that was ours but it did not compute. Finally someone else came to help and I rescued our food.
