Easter Week at Magic Kingdom

For the first time ever, we were crazy enough the brave the crowds during Easter week at Magic Kingdom. Actually, we were kind of forced into it - my sister was performing with her high school band on April 10. It was a thrill to see her marching down Main Street - despite the torrential rain! We've had a severe drought going on in Florida this spring, and the one day we go to the Magic Kingdom, the skies open up - go figure! The crowds were pretty heavy - exactly as we had been warned by many friends. For example, I waited on line for 20 minutes just to use the ladies' room! Definitely one of those times to envy the gentlemen. Despite the crowd, we did manage to do a couple of fun things. One thing that was surprisingly disappointing was the new "Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor." I guess I expected it to be as entertaining as "Turtle Talk with Crush" in Epcot - but it wasn't even close. It was just not engaging, despite the "audience participation" element that works so well with the "Crush" show. The jokes were not terribly funny, and there just wasn't anything different or creative about it. Even my 5 year old and 2 year old girls, who love the Monsters, Inc. movie, hardly cracked a smile through the entire performance. The Disney imagineers missed the boat with this attraction. To sum up, I think we'll skip Easter week next year!
