M.K. – Adventureland
That’s right. Adventureland. I’m the one writing, so we’re going around M.K. like my family does. In fact, I read somewhere that most people head toward Tomorrowland and Fantasyland when they first get to the park. However, as a Big-Bellied Beauty, I am here to tell you that some of the best rides for bigger people are in Adventureland.
The first attraction you will pass is the Treehouse of the Family Swiss. I’ll be honest, I haven’t gone up the treehouse in a long time because my daughter is too heavy to carry all the way up (don’t worry, she’s a toddler, so it’s not weird that I have to carry her still…). The attraction is completely based off of the movie and it’s a lot of fun for young kids to climb up. If your party is Adults Only, don’t feel bad if you miss this.
Continuing on the path you will come up to Aladdin’s flying carpets. Another honesty moment, here. The flying carpets confuse me. I thought there was only one flying carpet and Al already has custody of it? Anyways, this ride is basically the Dumbo ride with a Morroccan feel. Funny side note, as you enter the ride, watch out for the camel. He spits.
The Tiki Room is a show with birds. Blah. But on the left are two fun staples of
: The Jungle Cruise (which is a little lame, but very relaxing) and the Pirates of the Magic Kingdom Caribbean. The Jungle Cruise is a trek on a boat (go figure) through many “major” rivers. Your tour guide’s job is to tell the story and steer the boat, so the story hasn’t changed (ever), but still a lot of fun. And quite comfortable for the big-bellied.
Pirates, after a much needed update, is still the fun boat ride around to look at all the pirates, but now also has a mini-hill in the dark. It is a great ride for everyone of all shapes and sizes. I love this ride, it is the one thing we make sure we hit every time we go to
. And now that they have added Captain Jack Sparrow’s likeness to the ride, we ladies are much happier! He’s yummy… Magic Kingdom
And after the ride is over, spend some time in the Pirates-themed gift shop. You know you want to spend more money…
Sorry its a little short, but that is all there is in Adventureland. I know my (3) adoring fans are tired of waiting patiently, but please! I am but one person! Next time, we'll take a look at Frontierland...
