Photo TR: WDW's Animal and Magic Kingdom


Recommended Posts

Walt Disney World's off-season started today so we decided to go down to Orlando for a few hours. Why not? We have not been down to those parks since last April. Anyways, onto the pictures.

DSC08918.JPG.870ee3486765dc6c88b913d4ed2860a9.JPG

It was so awesome that they were running two trams right after park closing...:(

DSC08919.JPG.11613ee2bfe3be1c19a40fd0a9658bd9.JPG

Time to catch a parking lot tram.

DSC08916.JPG.1434bee77f4d67991c57653f562ebe0b.JPG

Shhhhhh....these chairs are trying to get some sleep.

DSC08915.JPG.f24e81f58c94a051139e45aeb5a9dd06.JPG

We were on one of the last trains of the day, this is what EE looks like when it is closed.

DSC08914.JPG.8b12f2d7aea644c31043677fb58189af.JPG

EE through the bushes/trees.

DSC08913.JPG.8a5a3cbbcce23661b7c1f7ae39acc399.JPG

Yes, that is the 1st lift hill.

DSC08912.JPG.611eec155f72577ac69638d7587d95f7.JPG

Our third and final ride was in the front row.

DSC08910.JPG.94fe8675bda7b44c961762b1083eaffd.JPG

For some reason they closed off the 2nd car of each train.

DSC08909.JPG.57b9f542a322399642bf29c7b8ec40b3.JPG

"Ha ha, I am leaving you for the Yeti!"

DSC08908.JPG.704329f9fade65243205b0fad5a754f0.JPG

I guess she likes forces on her coaster rides, because she picked the last car of the train.

DSC08907.JPG.ac5dc752e4c4459a9832d15c89f4d1ff.JPG

We spotted Christy Brinkley and her V.I.P. group while waiting for our 2nd ride.

DSC08905.JPG.647ab9e220ae2f74eb59c44410126dcf.JPG

The 2nd lift's train catch is not as jarring as it used to be. That is a good thing.

DSC08904.JPG.f74499f8b2c1321875e1efe9a600fc7c.JPG

Weeeee....coasters are fun.

DSC08900.JPG.c82898ad1ed61b63811b3f4312ddd702.JPG

Just by the wear on the lap bar, you can tell EE was the big hit of the year.

DSC08897.JPG.b47240615817d48989f1a7df187bf6e8.JPG

Yep, that is steam you see.

DSC08895.JPG.da75eb3aec9fcb7fad02958dfcdd9844.JPG

Yeah, its open again.

DSC08893.JPG.7c10ff482dd2052312b437ed06345033.JPG

It has been a while since we ate Mickey Mouse ice cream bars.

DSC08889.JPG.d32480123cda484ccab64f860abdfec5.JPG

Leanne was safe becuase she was wearing a Disney shirt.

DSC08888.JPG.7a1890680826b30cb1c3e41fc7b7329c.JPG

"How dare you wear a Six Flags shirt in my attraction.....Grrrraaaaaoooowlllll!!!"

DSC08887.JPG.552562bd729741db93b6ed5dba526ed0.JPG

Ok, we are giving you a second chance.

DSC08886.JPG.31925a3b0632f571cf90fb5d494caff9.JPG

Yeah, its the rodents.

DSC08884.JPG.acabc07aae797bb9989abd3ebf3cf00c.JPG

We were in need of a coaster fix so we had to settle for this one.

DSC08882.JPG.237a06e0e06b1915ef43c0b208371710.JPG

It is not open yet, I think late Fall.

DSC08881.JPG.751d0a44d49cfd9ebe920a7254d3af7a.JPG

Yeah, it is the new Nemo Musical Building that flattened Tarzan.

DSC08843.JPG.cba77e5fdf5ba4d674cbd6c72375798a.JPG

They have just about earned enough money to buy a new tire.

DSC08880.JPG.4bfa98b7df5267bab9fc4a0cd47fe5e3.JPG

The CMs were nice enough to give us one of these.

DSC08877.JPG.f8e6e3562db4bdc241650af152e26401.JPG

Stupid Vekoma ride.

DSC08876.JPG.39857219bea3e592ed0059c664040229.JPG

"Sorry people, the EE train is only an museum exhibit right now. Please use the right side exit."

DSC08875.JPG.ccd78104143a9e268cf429351652f9b5.JPG

Three cheers for Vekoma!

DSC08872.JPG.64e516e7434a5df2e0ecea595f63fe8a.JPG

Yeah, the museum tells the truth about Vekoma.

DSC08869.JPG.9f4075799b1fb793a1240c7864aaf207.JPG

So far there have been 4523 pictures of EE's poo exhibit. This one makes 4524.

DSC08868.JPG.a843b3f037f9fbf740dabff47504dd2d.JPG

Make fun of my credits will ya! Grrrrooowwwwwllllllll!

DSC08867.JPG.26b87198eb1dc94cc521d54b8d29e67b.JPG

It sure looks like the Yeti has a couple of credits.

DSC08866.JPG.54959a0aa4980ab18da6924ee437702f.JPG

Hee hee, it is a Yeti.

DSC08865.JPG.6d34822b3cb49da4c997f648cf6d98a1.JPG

I found some patches for my ultra cool jacket.

DSC08862.JPG.4e14d9f6832f9ca721a6fad180bfc7e8.JPG

At least they do supply a bed for when you get tired of standing in line.

DSC08861.JPG.bca18fefe911dbc4072c1d9e3629b556.JPG

EE's theming totally rocks!

DSC08854.JPG.8fffb9ab7e3a0cb65bf9f63cd55fa810.JPG

Awwww...they closed off the 10 minute tea garden queue tour.

DSC08853.JPG.7a6ae8ca143ae2a8faa01dfa6c8cf80b.JPG

At least the rest of EE's theming seemed to survive the summer months.

DSC08852.JPG.09570006f9f8d0fe40861a5ae85224ac.JPG

Bells of Death

DSC08857.JPG.82c90b14f6418301ce7c10de63a12117.JPG

If you get your money in the goblet you win by receiving a revelation that you just wasted your money.

DSC08851.JPG.66216445c79ed362dcb514ed64c56c52.JPG

It seems that Disney found itself another cash cow.

DSC08850.JPG.8c34bce93b49d231910f36c003bbbb16.JPG

Expedition Everest had a lot of problems today (the train kept stopping on the lift hill), stupid Vekoma.

DSC08848.JPG.36a0bf0f8073ebbbc0136f6bde5ae798.JPG

The wait was around 30 minutes, but I guess they covered up the sign for the 2 hour summer waits.

DSC08846.JPG.5a8ab0ca8460f2a773908480baed6a6c.JPG

Poor missing EE theming...:(

DSC08845.JPG.b50a839a3c34b6af89eb509cad4a287f.JPG

This is the last photo of this kid taken. Soon after, the Yeti found out he desecrated his temple.

DSC08844.JPG.96f9a8f7a564f9a7a85f333f32bbdb11.JPG

So we had to start here.

DSC08838.JPG.a5d5b0d1b97dbb78004761da3bc18d8c.JPG

Well, this is what happens when you get to the park mid-afternoon.

DSC08837.JPG.c9e4def6163af9a031f035b30b17b462.JPG

Make sure you make an offering before visiting the beer swiping Yeti.

DSC08835.JPG.4156b7c03025fe5222c21d7e21f11824.JPG

Since the seas of humanity are now gone, some of the animals made an apperance.

DSC08834.JPG.1a54d72d022b0518bc4194c342d875c7.JPG

Yep, it certainly is the off-season.....Yahooo!

DSC08831.JPG.437484389d25667c284fea54d1675023.JPG

A cast member said as Leanne walked through, "Way to Go Princess."

DSC08830.JPG.932b9aec1104ea37d026eebd2cc07533.JPG

Tram rides are fun.

DSC08828.JPG.198c1581eb8bfed366aab3266df7ce45.JPG

Someone is breaking the rules.

I'm leaving for the World on Tuesday, and NOW I see a new WDW Photo TR.

 

Great pics. Which seat would you recommend for an EE first-timer?

 

// Passing through Gainesville sometime Thursday, will most likely beg to stop at Whataburger

 

For a first time ride I actually would sit somewhere in the middle of the train, you can see all the ride effects better in the middle.

Cool. Thanks a bunch.

 

Another question/statement... I still have no idea what a Whataburger is (besides the obvious, a restaurant). Good food, I take it?

Ok, I guess I should finish up this Photo: TR by adding the Magic Kingdom pictures. The main reason for this visit was to ride the "enhanced" Pirates of the Carribean. It is pretty much the same ride as before but they added some elements from the recent movies. Overall we think it was a good decision. The three Jack Sparrows they have added to the ride were very lifelike. Anyways onto the pictures:

DSC08969.JPG.f35407dc3c49dde3dc67db2505ef1beb.JPG

Well, it is time to head back home. I hope you enjoyed it!

DSC08966.JPG.f0258376a6d67e1c6ed05a3d29a1e01d.JPG

Silly Brer Bear.

DSC08961.JPG.f4caf236b0064345a9d08f8eb6b888d7.JPG

We got to stay on the ride for a second time so we can watch the parade.

DSC08960.JPG.c6d5ef0ccb1fd543bff81f6818fe1c21.JPG

Though we did not get as wet as our ride back in March.

DSC08957.JPG.82f057515daf573e9e93e6414ff84e60.JPG

Splash Mountain is back to its opening year glory, and that is a great thing!!

DSC08956.JPG.8246278c47a74b3498dc4f3277a74704.JPG

While you can not see him here, the jumping Brer Rabbit is back working again....:)

DSC08955.JPG.255848d76c6183705abb5bad520a1e9a.JPG

Other than the soaking water jets of doom at its lowest setting, Spash Mountain's effects were running really great.

DSC08952.JPG.eaf841c1fe8e43de042f91b39eb40b19.JPG

Returning to Splash Mountain.

DSC08950.JPG.46e2298948054f89d62f83cc329b61cf.JPG

We had back to back Big Thunder rides, there was no wait in the station.

DSC08945.JPG.f0049775d9c3b0b138dc05f2859b1776.JPG

We did like the noodle bowls, but I am not really sure if it ever caught on.

DSC08944.JPG.cf3253cf9d4a5d870848ad1a9d157c8b.JPG

It seems that they turned it into a $28.99 buffet. :(

DSC08943.JPG.3a1c0d5cc8e4db7f0e425e2e824a37b5.JPG

Uh oh, what have they done to our noodle resturaunt.

DSC08942.JPG.737c2f7a06dc5d3613da3c9bee493db3.JPG

I am glad to see that Stitch is still bringing in the big crowds.

DSC08941.JPG.6ec35e96495c3826a2155cfd5db75dd4.JPG

This actually was closer to a 40 minute wait.

DSC08937.JPG.7b7d6f8b8c75d96c2b4202977c8e3575.JPG

So we took a train ride over to the otherside of the park.

DSC08936.JPG.3a85df7b16affb631ea46beec9002832.JPG

We decided to get a fast pass for this one since the line was a 40 minute wait.

DSC08935.JPG.7f12e22e00b0bb64c93604336bae93c2.JPG

Leanne is happy to see Johnny Depp.

DSC08933.JPG.4923628d5488cf3505ab33b16207661a.JPG

The really means that it is a walk-on.

DSC08932.JPG.0ce50982c420d5eda66a1a74ffb39370.JPG

Yes, they have added a few things in the front of the ride.

DSC08930.JPG.72dfde482a76bbaafd14ea57569dfede.JPG

We ended up passing on brain freezes today. Sorry Derek.

DSC08927.JPG.46af8b0316f456b1cdab7c4258e2682e.JPG

This is always a familiar picture.

DSC08926.JPG.0e0e0d89b808fa00bdf4e684d1405e68.JPG

See, they kidnapped and bolted Johnny Depp down in the ride.

DSC08925.JPG.a0dbd52f13dd32e7a3469c2dfcf0eecf.JPG

Yes, some enhancements have been made to the old Pirate ride this year.

DSC08924.JPG.46fa234c38bdd87a7f9e433f2d7ee326.JPG

Dueling monorails are always cool.

DSC08923.JPG.54f0502e262eeee751dcad23087a67cc.JPG

Yes, the prices have increased.

DSC08922.JPG.5774c8f50608e8aef040cc50757acd59.JPG

I am glad they have these posts that you can use to stretch out your back while waiting for the tram.

DSC08920.JPG.b8700918fd075356dd07910e55834075.JPG

Yep, back to the Magic Kingdom.

Hey Eric!

 

Glad to see you had fun at WDW - just a couple of notes.

-The dinner buffet at Tomorowland Terrace is a temporary addition to handle the overflow crowds from the free dining promotion. There is no need to worry about the noodle bowls never coming back..

-Believe it or not the water jets on Splash are not adjustable.. they are "Off" or "On"...luck of the draw beyond that.

I think they have better quality food that some of the other fast food burger joints. They are really building a lot of them in Florida.
