December 2nd, 2021              

Today I traveled to the Magic Kingdom to meet up with my parents and Erica, as well as my cousin Heather and her family - husband Jason and son Colin.

After arriving at the Ticket and Transportation Center I hopped on the monorail direct to the park. Upon arrival I met up with Grandpa Gary & Grandma Terry on Main Street, U.S.A. Heather and her family hadn't arrived at the park, so we opted to grab lunch at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Café, where we dined on hamburgers and french fries, and where I was able to pick up a 50th anniversary Minnie Mouse sipper cup!

After lunch we headed over to Mickey's PhilharMagic, to see the show with the new scene from Coco in it. The new scene blended in seamlessly with the older parts of the show, so it was a win in my book!

After the show we headed back to Main Street, U.S.A. to meet up with Jason, Heather, and Colin. While we were there we ended up posing for some PhotoPass pictures in front of Cinderella Castle. Afterwards, we made our way off towards Tomorrowland. At Colin's request, we wound up going to the Tomorrowland Speedway, so he and Heather could take a couple of spins around the track. From there we wandered over to the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover for a sight-seeing ride around the area, checking out the construction on the new TRON Lightcycle Power Run among other rides from above ground level.

Our next stop was Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, where we did our best to hit as many targets as possible. By this point it was getting late enough in the day that we decided to head out, as I had to leave for work early the next morning. We said our goodbye's to Heather and her family before Jason took Colin for another spin on Buzz Lightyear and we headed out for the day.

Until next time!
