Amid fantastic crowds, we made our way back to Magic Kingdom today to catch all the rides we’d missed on earlier visits. Splash Mountain was a hit. As was Big Thunder Mountain (or whatever it’s called, I’ve been getting it wrong all week). The Jungle Cruise host was hilarious, but they normally are. Mara and I did the Haunted Mansion while Diana and Cameron got snacks and shot things in Liberty Square. And Pirates, the one I really wanted to see, the one that had been offline every time we’d looked, was back up and running and we walked right on with no wait.
