As January draws to a close, we have successfully visited the world 4 times this month. I am off to a great start! And luckily, I picked the only non-rainy day of the weekend! :)
As Mini-Me played with her camera for this trip, Future Headache & Princess Peanut decided to play. After riding Goofy's Barnstormer for the first time last weekend, Princess Peanut decided she needed to "ride again". So off we went to Toontown.
Can I say that I am sad that they are demolishing Toontown? First of all, I am totally thrilled about the Fantasyland expansion. It is so needed. Really...just try to walk thru Fantasyland & you will see what I mean. It is super-crowded. More room & more attractions are definitely exciting thoughts, although I am scared to see what the construction will look like!! I overheard on twitter that they are starting on Winnie the Pooh's playground. That saddens me because that is one of Princess Peanut's favorite play areas. But anyway, back to Toontown.
The only thing that saddens me about Toontown leaving the Kingdom will be the loss of Mickey & Minnie's houses & Donald's boat. (Goofy's Barnstormer is staying.) As we walked thru the houses this weekend, I can't imagine Magic Kingdom without them. I know many children are thrilled to walk thru these attractions & see how their beloved mice live. Everything started with the mouse...his presence should remain strong in the parks...especially the Magic Kingdom. I know they are moving to Expo Hall, but it just will not be the same. :(
It will be a long haul with construction. It will also be weird to not see Dumbo front & center with the Carousel. But it is a nice thought that Princess Peanut might be able to ride Dumbo without having to wait 45 minutes ;)
Speaking of construction, lots is being done on Main Street during this slow month. Just this week scrims were put over the Plaza Ice Cream Shop & a large blue scrim was put over the Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle House/Wishes Dessert Party seating area.
Looking forward to our trip next week..planning on meeting up with an old grade school friend (who I have not seen since the 8th grade) & then going to see the shuttle launch afterwards at the Cape.
Til then, have a magical day!!
