Busy Day at MK

Last few days of work have been pretty boring and uneventful – I am working 60 hours this week so my shifts are long and I don’t have much time to relax but I only have 14 shifts left so I think I can manage!

Today Alice and I headed to MK from our standard 10am meet at the Bus Stop. I had managed to get reservations at Tony’s for Lunch so the day was pretty much planned around that. We arrived in MK and headed for our standard Mansion, Philhar, Pirates combo only to discover all had significant waits of at least 20 minutes. MK was seriously busy! I also really needed a haircut so we headed to Harmony but it also had a crazy line. We killed time shopping around until our reservation time – well actually a little early. We ate a delicious lunch at Tony’s – much enjoyed although Alice had to get a to-go box for her pizza as she just could not finish it!

We then headed back to the Barbers waited about 10 minutes before deciding the wait was crazy and that we would head to the Contemporary for a haircut there. The Salon there is AMAZING! It cost $10 for a great haircut – much better than Main Street and Alice even had a bit of a trim and hers also cost $10 – bargain! We did a bit of Monorail resort hopping with a quick stop at the Poly before heading back to MK and then giving up on the craziness and heading to DHS.

DHS was busy but not quite as bad although in the end we really only did Star Tours and Mania before giving up due to the crazy heat. It has been hot the last few days and I mean seriously hot – 95 degrees in the shade!

Back to work tomorrow for 6 days before my next day off – got my eyes on the prize at the moment – booked my last night in the Contemporary and after a quick visit today I am more excited than ever!

I have been bad and not blogged

OK so it has been 4 days since my last post. Work has been mundane – a few celebs through the mountain but more often than not I don’t even know who they are – but other than that life has been pretty quiet.

I had yesterday off and on Tuesday night I finished at about 4pm so I went over to Epcot to meet Alice who was there with her friend from work who’s name escapes me at the precise time! We had a lot of fun in innoventions avoiding the rain and then we watched Illuminations before Alice and I headed on to MK for food and fun – we did not really do a lot of rides but lots of chilling out in the happiest place on earth!

Yesterday we went to DAK and did everything and I mean everything! OK, maybe we missed a bit of Chester and Hester but that does not really count… Much fun was had and we even headed back to MK again in the evening – it is almost like we have a magnetic attraction to the place! We finished pretty early though since I had to get up at 5am this morning to go to work for my 12 hour shift!

Work today was actually pretty fun – I was not in station all day and the heat index was over 100 degrees. Despite all that the guests were actually really nice and I worked a little bit of magic with a couple who had just got married today – they got front of the line access and special treatment! I am really tired now and this blog post probably makes no sense and certainly does not give a lot of detail – sorry – I will do better – I promise!
