Nick and I got to the Magic Kingdom a little after opening, I took some photos of the Christmas decorations still hanging around and we met up with Robyn and Scott shortly thereafter.
Nick treated everyone to Dole-Whips and then off to Pirates and then the Haunted Mansion. We ran into another marathon couple in Fantasy Land, Lisa and Rick, and while we were standing and talking, our friend Mar walked by. She was only in for a couple days and had not known any of our plans. More Disney Magic.
More and more people seem to stand around tapping on their little devices. It seems crazy since their families are right there and no one is talking to one another! Some of us went back to ride Haunted Mansion, and we all met afterwards for lunch at Columbia Harbour House. While Nick was getting our food, our friends, Ken and Millie came by. We had a nice time just talking in the upstairs area. Afterwards, most couples split off to go to their various resorts, while, Ken, Millie, Nick and I went to see Mickey's Philharmagic. (Maybe my favorite thing to do in Fantasy Land) We then rode the Tomorrowland Transportation Authority. Ken and Millie departed for an afternoon siesta, and we went into the Carousel of Progress. (Another favorite of mine)
Nick had a Mickey Premium Bar afterwards, and we meandered through the shops on Main Street. Always looking for an interesting pin or vinylmation to trade. We got back to the Boardwalk, and went to the pool for a while. Showered and met up with John and Kandi. We had 7:00pm reservations at Boma at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. The food at this buffet is out of this world, and this is another favorite, if not our very favorite place for the quality and variety of choices. The soups alone are worth the trip. Nick stuffed himself to bursting. Kandi and I took longer and worked slowly through all the great dishes. We spent hours there.
By the time we got back to the room, Nick was in a food coma.
