Walt Disney World, Orlando Florida
With only two days to spend at the Disney Resort, we knew the days would be action-packed! Day One started with a trip to Magic Kingdom. Visiting the park for the first time as 50-somethings, it was an enjoyable day. We started off along Main Street and then to the left, which seemed less crowded. We climbed through the tree house at an easy pace and then over to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride with no waiting at the entry.

After a walk to the back of the park, we did have a 30 minute wait to go over to Tom Sawyer Island, but once we arrived were quickly exploring the island and the caves, bridges and such at that venue. A short boat ride back to the main area and we headed into the colonial district.

One of the highlights of the day was the Hall of Presidents display. After lunch, we enjoyed watching and then riding the Mad Tea Party. Next event on the program was the parade, which was exciting and beautiful with the many costumed characters and lively music. Humming along afterwards, we went

to Tomorrowland.

The only exhibit that captured our attention in that section was a rotating exhibit showing the history of technology. It was entertaining and educational, so we enjoyed it a lot. After a few other rides and displays, we headed to the monorail for the quick ride over to Epcot, concluding our time in the Magic Kingdom.
