I love Magic Kingdom. It is honestly my favorite place in the whole world so on Day 2 of our vacation we headed out to Magic Kingdom. Now, we are late risers so by the time we saw this amazing sign, it was already noon!!
It was HOT HOT HOT in Magic Kingdom!!!
You have to do the castle in the background pic. Here is JC with the kids. I always get so teary-eyed when I see the castle.
Since our kids are older (11,9,8 and 7) we have moved on the bigger kid rides at the park so our first stop was Splash Mountain. We had Fastpass for this ride so we skipped the 90 minute wait.
I was the only person from our group who had ever been on Splash Mountain before so there was lots of excitement. Ivanna and Adrian sat in the front row, JC and Gian in the next one and then Amberly and I in the third.
Someone was terrified but ended up loving it! We all did!!
Onto the Big Thunder Mountain where the kids were tickled by the sign that read "Baths weekly!"
We didn't have Fastpass for this ride but the wait wasn't too bad, about 25 minutes. There are lots of signs to read, memorabilia to look at and blasters to play with while you wait!
Then it was time for lunch and the Festival of Fantasy Parade which is at 3pm every day!!
I took this picture so JC could see what I was looking at all day. I kept asking him if he was having a good time and he kept saying "yes...why do you keep asking me?" Hmmm.....with a face like this, I wonder why. It's perfect for a meme like "A vikings excited face at Disney!" We made sure to get him an It's My Birthday pin so there was lots of birthday wishes headed his way!!
My girl Belle was up first in the parade!! This parade has ornate floats and incredible costumes. So colorful and fun!!
All the fun ends with probably the world's most famous couple: Mickey and Minnie!!!
Minnie's bows always rock!!!
After the parade, we made a beeline to Fantasyland, rode the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and then onto It's a Small World. There is no way you can go to Magic Kingdom and not ride It's a Small World.
Belle's castle. I was so giddy with excitement!!
Every afternoon in Tomorrowland, there's a dance party with the cast from the Incredibles. Here are my kids doing the Macarena which was quickly followed by Watch Me Whip!! It was really col ot have Mr. and Mrs. Incredible and FroZone walking around dancing with the kids.
Time for another mountain and the epic 2 hour wait that you can always expect at Space Mountain!!! It's so worth every minute of waiting!
Followed by everyone's favorite:Buzz Lightyear Space Rangers. Of course, JC ended up with the highest score!!
Can you tell they were over waiting in lines? It was just so HOT!!!
Silly faces always helps time go by faster!
So does pulling out a loose tooth apparently. Amberly is a barbarian I tell you!
I have always taken a picture with Zurg after the Buzz Lightyear ride and the kids were really into it!
By 8pm we were exhausted and so, so hot that we decided to skip the fireworks show and go back to the hotel. Thankfully, I packed our ponchos because it started raining as we were waiting for the ferry boat!!
Magic Kingdom was truly magical. I love all the new improvements they've made and we can't wait to go back!!
