Wednesday, December 7th brought us back to the Magic Kingdom.
On the other hand, Space Mountain is mostly in darkness. There are exceptions with intermittent light effects that are kind of cool in a cheesy sci-fi sort of way. But the majority of the ride is a hurried, jerking sensation through total pitch black darkness and I did not care for it. I did not care for it at all. In fact, for a while after the ride, there was some concern that Space Mountain may have broken my brain… FOREVER.

when we were at Casey's Corners
For dinner, we had reservations as the Diamond Horseshoe which is in the Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland and is done up in the style of the old American West. Now here is a serious dining challenge. The main entrée at the Diamond Horseshoe is… meat. What kind of meat, you might ask? All of it, I would answer. OK, not ALL of it but they bring out a tray that includes braised beef, pulled pork, smoked sausage and turkey. And it is all GOOD! Especially the beef and the pork which was so tasty and so tender as if it were made of the dreams of angels. Damn, it was some good eating! And damn, I wish we were hungrier. Oh and the meat came with macaroni and cheese, baked beans and corn on the cob plus corn bread, salad and brownies. We got the brownies to go. I would’ve bagged up the meat too if I had a chance to do so. Everything was so good!
