Magic Kingdom with David and Bobby Part 1

Angie and Trina had left 4 days earlier but today we decided to go to the Walt Disney World Lost and Found to see if Angie's sunglasses lost at Animal Kingdom could be found.

The Lost and Found is located near the Kennel Club and this cool topiary of every Disney fan's favorite dog, Pluto, can be found smack dab in front of the building.
Yes, people lose MANY pairs of sunglasses daily at the parks...but we DID manage to find the right pair. We will return them to her someday.

The next day David and Bobby came to visit us for a couple of days following their cruise to Key West and Cozumel. We decided to take in The Magic Kingdom and arrived right before the gate opened and just in time to see the song and dance production that welcomes guests to the park.

David and Bobby took time to stand in front of The Magic Kingdom's most famous icon as seen before on this blog...Cinderella's Castle.

Cinderella's Castle has gotten new found attention since the introduction of Disney's Year of a Million Dreams on October 4, 2006. Officially extended through 2008, one of the Dream Giveaways is a stay in the Cinderella Castle Suite.

A great website to read all about this promotion and see pictures of the Suite can be found at http://www.wdwmagic.com/yearofamilliondreams.htm . Check it out.

Buzz Lightyear greets us and briefs us on our mission in his Space Ranger Spin.

Marlon and Bobby zero in on aliens.

After an intense battle with aliens it was time to ride "the happiest cruise that ever sailed".

Did you know that the name of the ride is officially spelled with all small letters? Take a look at some of the stars of "it's a small world".

Did you know the song was written by the Sherman Brothers specifically for this ride which was then called "children of the world"?

Did you know the ride features 472 figures (both animated and not) according to wikipedia?

Did you know that penguins can sing?

We forgot to ask David and Bobby if this cruise was indeed happier than their Carnival Cruise.

To be continued...
