MGM and Magic Kingdom

We kicked theme park butt today especially considering the crowds by getting to the MGM gates before opening. First stop was a Fast Pass for Tower of Terror then we waited in line for 10 minutes for Rock and Roller coaster. Off to Star Tours and Muppets 3D and The Great Movie Ride. After all that we had a birthday lunch for Dave at the Sci-Fi Drive in CafĂ© complete with a free birthday sundae! Sounds Dangerous was a great way to get into the A/C for a while then we rode Tower of Terror and Rock and Roller Coaster again. The only thing we did all day that Dave wasn’t thrilled about was waiting in line for pictures with the rats from Ratatouille.

I'm way too cheap to pay $13 for a ride photo, so I just started taking a picture of them on the preview screen with my own camera. Some of them didn't turn out too bad! This is Rock and Roller Coaster, Dave's favorite ride.
Remy and Emile were so cute!
Outside Muppets 3-D
Tower of Terror. We are the pink and white blobs on the front, right. LOL

After all that fun, we were worn out so after a swim and a 5-hour nap (that’s right!) we headed to the Magic Kingdom since it was staying open until 2:00 AM. We got to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (which is a real treat at night), Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, The Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor, Mickey’s Philharmagic, the shooting arcade (for free) and see Spectromagic. We got back to our room at 1:30 AM and knew right then that we wouldn’t be able to get up early for Animal Kingdom Extra Magic hours!
