Yo Yo Yo Yo Yo… So lemme holla at ya for a hot minute. We just got into Orlando for the Florida Music Festival. We’re playing tomorrow night, so we’ve got a day off to catch up on some blogging and hopefully some sightseeing!
Now for those of you who haven’t been to Orlando before, I think this sums it up: It smells like an in door swimming pool and the humidity is like sitting in a sweaty gym sock after a 3-mile run, with both ends of the sock sewn up.
So, once we get through a few hours of work – setting up more shows in CA for our return to the west coast, and working on some new songs etc. — we decide to treat ourselves by heading down to Disney World! I mean, we are in Orlando after all. Everyone has a little bit of money put aside and we’re all willing to drop twenty-five bucks for an afternoon of fun at the greatest place on earth!
We learn that the cab ride will be forty dollars just to get there. After some hesitation, we agree to split it and each eat the extra ten bucks. Noah, unfortunately for us, will not be partaking in today’s fun, because it is his one year anniversary with his girlfriend. So he has planned a day of talking to her on Skype since he’s on tour and she’s studying abroad for the semester. We understand completely, and only give him a SMALL amount of grief for this.
At the Magic Kingdom!
After a long cab ride we are there! Will is like a kid in a candy store. So excited for each ride we’re going to get on…This is great. On our walk through downtown Disney we encounter some of the strangest folks you’ve ever seen. This includes a ‘business up front, party in the back” mullet-eer, a human child on a leash, and the Lego family. They’re very nice and the teenage daughter takes a liking to Will. She even gives him her number. (He probably won’t call her, I’m not gonna lie)
FINALLY, we are at the gate — ready to buy our admission tickets and enter the Magic Kingdom as a band! We’ve made it across the US together in the past few weeks and we feel like a great day in the park is exactly what the doctor ordered! I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but watch the end of the video. You won’t believe what Mickey is charging these days! Minnie must be one expensive broad!
