So after some lunch headed 25minutes further down the line and checked into the Disney Downtown Holiday Inn. Lovely and clean and newly refurbished -and way cheaper than Hard Rock Hotel!
It takes about 20 minutes to Magic Kingdom Ticket and Transportation centre and from there you catch a Monorail which takes you into the actual heart of MK. Feels like a bit of a mission but it is airconditioned the whole way and offers respite from the ever constant heat!
We arrive at 4pm and go hard with as much as we can fit in before 9pm. We manage most of Adventureland with a walk-through of an awesome replica of the Swiss family Robinsons treehouse home and jump on board a ride through the Pirates of the Carribean with Jack Sparrow!
It is soooo hot today and we are really feeling the heat - can't seem to get enough relief but continue on. At 8pm is the Main Street Electrical parade which is outstanding - Disney really know how to put on a spectacular show - it winds its way through the pathways of the magic Kingdom with thousands and thousands of people along the sides watching with awe. At 9pm the Wishes Night time spectacular starts - an amazing 20 minutes of fantastic fireworks to music - makes Brooklands Bowl Xmas fireworks look exceedingly amateurish!
We bolt hotel bound onto the Monorail and catch the connecting bus and manage to reach our Hotel room by 10pm - knackered! But what a great day.
