One More Disney Day in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom and Disneyland
By Matt Myers

Brent Dodge was broadcasting with some WEDfriends in Magic Kingdom while Frank, Dave, their friend Lenny and I broadcasted in Disneyland. My experience started at Anaheim when we checked into our hotel and went to sleep real early. I woke up at 5AM and got to the park 5:30AM to get in line.

We got through security and after getting through the gate we got our Fastpasses for Star Tours. We then had breakfast in Tomorrowland before going over to the submarine. It was then time for our Star Tours Fastpass. Afterwards we met Frank and Dave and rode the train to New Orleans Square where we discovered Modern Family was being recorded!

We then went on Pirates of the Caribbean with Frank, Dave, and the WEDfriends in the chatroom until we lost them.

It was then time to meet up with my friend Joey who had some amazing news! His lifelong dream of being a Cast Member at Disneyland came true!!! We then went to Star Tours with Joey and then headed to Autopia to get some Fastpasses. We lost Frank and Dave so decided to go to Space Mountain and Pizza Port for food and to charge our phones.

While here we also lost Joey and didn't see him the rest of the night. We made our way over to Modern Family, which is where Modern Family was at as well. We watched them tape for a little bit and then made our way to the Haunted Mansion where we met up with Frank and Dave again. We went on the Jungle Cruise and did some more broadcasting with them.

We then did Star Tours again and eventually made our way to Toontown. We watched Mickey's Soundsational Parade and Fantasmic, but by then the park was sold out and I decided it was way too crowded for me so I headed back home. I wish it could have been less crowded like Florida since I heard they didn't have as bad of a time, but overall it was a lot of fun attempting to stay 24 straight hours in Disneyland!
