Train Station, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World
Last week I drove my mother-in-law back to Florida. It was an extended weekend for me as we left on Wednesday, arrived on Thursday and I flew back on Sunday. The tropical storm/hurricane/strong winds with rain that was/is Hermine had a minimal impact on central Florida which was lucky for us as there was some work to be done opening up her place. We did drive through some rain in Georgia ahead of the storm making landfall and each day I was in Florida there was some rain but to me that always happens. The rain never seems to last very long.
Even though the forecast was for thunder showers most of the day Saturday I took a chance and drove over to the Magic Kingdom. It had been almost a year since my last visit to the first Walt Disney World park and I wanted to spend a lazy day walking around the kingdom. The crowds were a little more than I had hoped for but not as bad as they could have been for a holiday weekend. We also got an early afternoon shower but I was prepared with my poncho and a little water never hurt me.
My original plan was to stay into the early evening since the park was open until 1am but the heat of the day and the prospect of driving back to the east coast only to drive back to the Orlando airport early the next day had me exiting the park unusually early. As luck would have it the area in front of the train station was completely empty as I worked my way to the exit so I naturally had to grab a few images.
