Day 1 - Part Two

Upon arriving at Adventureland a little before 3:30pm, we found no lines at all; so we walked at a leisurely pace up to the most popular attraction; Indiana Jones Adventure and boarded within 5 minutes. I'm not complaining, of course! In fact, I mentioned to my boss that we weren't getting a chance to enjoy the diversions that are placed along the maze which lead to the ride. This is a totally insane ride that throws you all over the place and is definitely the most creative of all the new fast rides. You get into a jeep and are "in" the movie, complete with arrows being shot at your head and a giant stone ball coming rapidly at you. Great fun! A ride to go on again and again and again! Next we went to New Orleans Square for Pirates of the Caribbean. At the entrance to the cave there's a talking pirate skull, intoning the ominous warning: "Dead men tell no tales...". Along the journey, hidden treasures are found, a ghostly shipwreck appears in the eye of a hurricane, and the haunted caverns open to a harbor port under siege. It's definitely not a thrill ride, but the drops are good and the scenery is fantastic! There's so much to look at and a great song to listen to. See how many scenes from the movie you can recognize! Being that it was a weekday...we were off to a good start because both of these rides were walk-ons. I've been advised that the popular rides usually have a really long wait, to have the patience to "twiddle your thumbs" during those long lines and always to get the fastpass if it is made available.

We all regrouped and decided to have something to eat. L, pointed out this cute Mexican place called "Rancho del Zocalo". I ordered the Chicken with Garlic Sauce (grilled half chicken topped with fresh garlic sauce...served with corn and black bean salad, roasted pineapple, corn cake and your choice or mexican rice or chipotle cheddar mashed potatoes) and that totally hit the spot in my empty tum-tum. It was simply yummy-lious! The dining area is large, open seating, most covered to keep the hot sun away.

After that wonderful meal, potty break, etc...it was a little before 5pm. L pointed out that we should try this one roller coaster ride. I was hesistant being that I'd just eaten. I didn't want to get sick or anything but L convinced me to go and try it out. "Big Thunder Mountain Railroad" is set in the Old West during the gold mine era. You go through what looks to be a large mine building before you descend to take the roller coaster. Once in the roller coaster, you spend about three minutes speeding round the tracks that weave past shear rock faces, down deep carved ravines and through numerous tunnels on the island. It sports fun hairpin turns and dark descents rather than sudden, steep drops and near collisions. While riding, you may take in glimpses of the Old West scenery.

We had really gotten a lot done today, and avoided most lines. But I was getting a bit worn out and will confess to being in a pretty bad mood so we all agreed it was time to leave. As tired as we all were, we were wired too, but I finally got to bed at 7.30pm and crashed, after being up for about 21 hours!
