We started our slow walk into the park and discovered wheelchairs at the end of our row. Alex grabbed one and he wheeled Rob along as we made our way through the admission lines and to he stroller, wheelchair, scooter rental area so we could rent a scooter. The cost for the scooter was $70 for one day. This included a $20 refundable deposit.

Getting out and back to the car took some work. We had a bit of trouble finding the scooter rental kiosk but were finally able to return the scooter, get a wheelchair and make the long, slow walk back to the car.
There is a Disney app for Apple and Android smart phones that directs you around the parks, gives wait time for the rides and locates other attractions but I didn't realize it would have been helpful to me until after we left the park. I had it installed and ready for our second Disney day at the Magic Kingdom on Saturday.
Entering The Magic Kingdom is a completely different experience. The parking lots are endless but because of Rob's disabled parking tag we were able to snag a spot very near the front of the parking lot. This time we knew to look for a wheelchair to get Rob from the car into the park so we could rent a scooter. We later found out we could only take that specific wheelchair so far and we were told we had to switch it for a different one. Then we waded our way through admission and onto the ferry for the ride across the lake and into The Magic Kingdom. It took us more than an hour to get from our car into the actual park.

Once inside the fun began! It was Saturday so things were pretty crowded in the park but we managed to wade through. I can't tell you how many times Rob had to stop suddenly in order to avoid mowing down a stray child or a checked-out adult with a cell phone in hand.
Cinderella's Castle is still gorgeous!
We rode several rides including the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, Splash Mountain and It's a Small World.
And just like that it was time for our little princess to have a late lunch with the Disney Princesses.
We said our goodbyes to the kids because they had a very early flight home the next morning. Rob and I left the park and made our way back to the car. We got home about 4:20 PM. It was a long day but we had a great time. Let the recovery begin.
As I am writing this we are a little more than half way to our home for the next month. Orange Beach, Alabama. We'll be leaving in a couple of hours and should arrive early this afternoon.
