…this is a continuation of my 24 hours at the Magic Kingdom during the “One More Disney Day”. Missed the others? Click HERE to read Hours 1-3.
Hour 4… 9:00 a.m. 2.28.2012
Disneyland in California opened now, and my friend Darby and her hubby were in line to now start their 24 hour journey. She had her button in hand, and snapped a pic at the turnstiles there.
Back in WDW, Otis showed me the “new wall” near the bathroom area next to Pinocchio’s Village House. Yes, it is a NEW wall, funny thing to go and look at, but it’s part of the Fantasyland expansion and it was exciting to see the start of something new coming.
We stopped at the All Ears Meet to see Deb and Deb again and found so many more awesome people there as well. Eric Golden was my first pal there who I had met this past year at Tusker House, and he was so kind to watch my backpack while I chatted with the others. As I was starting to meet more people, my call came in to talk to the TN Radio Show so Otis found me a quiet spot inside Pinocchio’s where it was nice and quiet to talk- thank you!!
I felt like a celebrity while I chatted with Hank and Ed, Station WJZM, trying to answer their questions as best I could. They were both so kind and sweet and I was happy to help them out. Now, had they talked to me at 3:00 a.m, that interview would have been A LOT different. Want to hear the interview? Click HERE to listen!
Hour 5… 10:00 a.m. 2.28.2012
After I came off Cloud 9, I was back at the meet and Eric says to me “Hey you got a tattoo” and I said “No I didn’t!” and I look down and my arm has bright purple marker all over it. Apparently while I was on the phone, I had my arm resting on my Galactic Hero button and it rubbed or sweated off. What was so funny about it is that the number backwards on my arm was “666” so I joked that I needed to get the number of the Beast off my arm. LOL
So I go to the fountain and try to rub it off and two lovely gentleman are hanging out next to it. I introduce myself and one of them says “I’m Mike Scopa” and I said “Oh my gosh!!” I have listened to WDW Today MANY times and was so excited to finally have met him. I got a pic with them but the lighting isn’t the best with the sun and shade. Then he introduced me to Mike Newell who we had done a “Fridays with Friends” on, (Click HERE to read it) and he was a great guy as well. It was a great Meet and thank you to Deb for hosting it!
Hour 6… 11:00 a.m. 2.28.2012
After the Meet I broke off from the group to head to another meet with some new friends. At the bottom of the TTA, I met Kristal, Kristen and Sarah and we rode the Peoplemover, then Buzz, and then had a great time at Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor. These ladies were SOO nice and so friendly, and I thank them all for inviting me to hang out with them for a bit. We clicked so well that we made plans to dance later at 1 a.m.
I met back up with Otis, Ken, and Anthony and after we saw Mickey and Minnie in their PJ’s, we headed to Sorcerers to grab more cards. Did you know that there is a SECOND place to pick up the spells? Yep, you can also get them right behind the Christmas Shop located in Liberty Square. The line wasn’t as long as the one at the Fire Station, so it took only a few minutes to pick them up. Anthony played his set, so we followed him around Frontierland.
