Magic Kingdom: The Emporium

If you're smart, you're strolling through here at 1AM looking for that Mickey Mouse hand spatula to flip eggs with. Otherwise...

 

I've always been baffled by how many people visit the shops first thing in the morning. Mid-day I can understand, because maybe it's your last day or you're going back to the resort to nap, but first thing in the morning? Why!? You're wasting valuable time on riding the major attractions with little-to-no wait!

 

Having said all of that, I've definitely hit up the bakery on my way in to grab an OJ and/or bagel :) . In my defense, however, I've always had a trusty companion grabbing a fast pass at either Space or Splash Mountain, and then it's almost always off to the Jungle Cruise or Pirates. There's always a method to the madness.

 

Enjoy this lovely and foreboding angle of The Emporium!
