Magic Kingdom Day

For our day at Magic Kingdom we got a really early start!
Mickey waffles for energy!

The security lines took FOREVER and I was sure we wouldn't get through in time to see the opening of the park, but we made it! I don't know exactly why, but I really wanted to see it! It was fun to get all excited with the music and the characters! 

We had to get some magical shots on Main Street

Charlie was tall enough for the ride this year and he LOVED it! In fact, he asked to go back again later that night.

Elena of Avalor is the newest Disney princess and while we didn't get to meet and greet with her, we did get to see her at the show where Cinderella and Princess Charming welcome Elena to Disney.

Elena sang and talked to the crowd for a bit. Sarah Graves was in love!

I just love all the Mickey food!

She loves the Elena doll she got at Disney Springs with her Tinkerbelle gift card.


When we packed her clothes she knew she wanted to wear her Little Mermaid dress to meet Ariel. I wanted matching Mickey jack-o-lantern shirts, so we had an agreement that she could change outfits when we met Ariel! She has always had a special place for Ariel.

We couldn't pull the sword out!

He was thrilled he got on a horse that went up and down!

As we were getting in line for the carousel, Sarah Graves noticed that she lost one of Elena's shoes. She was devastated, so Aaron offered to go back and look for it while we rode the carousel. When she got off and he had that shoe, she was so delighted! What a sweet daddy to go find it for her!

I love that they are at ages where rides like It's A Small World make them so happy.

We were really killing time before our next Fast Pass when Aaron stumbled upon this show in Liberty Square. The Muppets were working on signing the Declaration of Independence and I would have thought the kids would find it boring. Charlie, however, was so tickled by it! He laughed and repeated lines from the show for days! His favorite part was when Miss Piggy said, "there's always room for moi!" He didn't get the joke at all, but he loved the part about the Town Crier!

We also stumbled upon the Wishes parade that afternoon. It is the same parade they were doing a couple of years ago, but the kids like being all the characters.

Tiana was so friendly and talked to them about New Orleans. I love the characters who make it a fun experience and not just a photo and autograph.

Later in the afternoon we headed over to Tomorrowland. 

Two years ago Charlie was asleep in the Ergo on this ride and this year he could aim his laser and understood he was getting points! It is just amazing how quickly they grow and how much fun each age is. 

Charlie took a nap, which I was all for since we had a long night ahead of us and I didn't want him to miss it. 

Charlie isn't tall enough for Space Mountain, so his nap was a good time for us to ride it. Lucky SG got to ride it twice! Disney has such a great rider switch plan.

I don't have any pictures of it, but we also rode Carousel of Progress and to my surprise they really liked it! I figured it would go way over their heads and be boring, but they said they enjoyed it. After that ride, it was time for us to change into costumes and get ready for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party!
