Florida Day 2

After a late night, it was after 9:00 a.m. before Sharon and Jack got out of bed. By the luck of the draw, we ended up on one of the two upper floors that serves breakfast, probably because we got here so late that it was all they had left. The hotel is full with every Home Depot manager in the country!

The monorail actually runs through the middle of the hotel that we are staying in. We took the monorail through the Polynesian and Grand Floridian Hotels to the Magic Kingdom. Jack has been talking about the Autopia at Disneyland ever since he learned that we were coming to Disneyworld. They have a comparable ride called the Indy Speedway. We went there first and Jack had a great time.

Afterwards, he said that it was time to go back to the hotel that he was done with Disneyworld. When we started to talk about some other rides that we were going to do, he said that it was actually time to go back to California. We wandered around a little bit trying to get him pointed towards some rides and decided to feed him some more.

After some lunch, the three of us went on The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Mickey's PhilharMagic, the Jungle Cruise and Pirates of the Caribbean (Sharon only). All of this was a little like dentistry in the 19th century. Jack was hesitant about all of the rides.

We headed back to the room about 5 p.m. and I took Jack down to the pool. They had a mid-sized water slide. Jack thought that this was the greatest thing in the world. He spent almost an hour sliding down the slide into the pool.

We had a dinner reservation at the California Grill. This is on the top floor (15th) of the Disney Contemporary Hotel. It was a great view; we had a window table facing the sunset and looking down on the Magic Kingdom. We watched the sunset and the lights come on in the park. Sharon had ravioli (she never orders pasta!), I had a pork tenderloin and Jack had a cheese pizza.

We finished the night watching a light show on the lake from our room.
