Today we kind of took it easy. We always try and take a day that we don't do as much so we don't all run out of steam before the trip is over. We started out the morning by going to the settlement at Fort Wilderness and having breakfast at the Trails End. All I have to say is Mickey Waffles. From there we went over to the Magic Kingdom to hit a couple more things that we missed. We went through the shops on the left side of Main Street making our way towards Tomorrowland. Once there we enjoyed the Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor. This was a well done attraction with a lot of good laughs. It was an all around fun attraction. From there we went over and rode Space Mountain, again. Can you tell what one our favorite attractions is? From there we went over and saw The Carousel of Progress. I love this attraction because it has been relatively untouched since it's debut at the World's Fair in I believe it was 1964. It's just one of those things you appreciate even more knowing that Walt himself had a hand in it. After that we made our way out of the Magic Kingdom to take in one of our unofficial family trip traditions. We hopped on the monorail and did the Magic Kingdom loop, resort hopping along the way. It's always been one of those things that we always like to do. We got around to the Contemporary again and hitched a boat ride back to Fort Wilderness for a little break before our night at Downtown Disney.
We went to the 6:00 p.m. showing of Cirque Du Soleil La Nouba and I have to say that this was one of the highlights of the trip for me. I had an idea of how it was going to be from the previews I saw online. But nothing could have prepared me. It was a wonderful show and to all that are hesitant about spending the money to go, just do it. You will not regret it. From there we hopped in the car and drove down to the marketplace side of downtown disney. Not an easy task, from now on, I'm taking the bus. That parking lot was a nightmare and I encourage disney to do something about it. It was crazy! But once we got parked and out of the car it was time to find something to have for dinner. We ended up at Earl of Sandwich and were very surprised. It was our first time there and even though it was a bit loud to the point where we had to strain to hear one another, the food was excellent. I will definitely be going back and once again, if you haven't tried it, do it. After we ate we just hung around marketplace for a little bit and then went on back to the resort to end a bit more relaxed, but still eventful and fun day. Stay tuned for Day 6. Peace.
