Magic Kingdom reached capacity. Sharing Magic Kingdom with 90 000 other Disney-goers dims the magic a tidge for parents. That being said, we worked our fast passes, timed our “Meet Merida” experience—we dashed to her queue at rope-drop!, raced the Speedway, plunged Under the Sea with Ariel, and watched the spectacular Fantasy parade. We went home during the hot hours of the afternoon. We came back when some 30 000 or so people had surrendered.
Tackling the day this way allowed us to do all of the things we set out to do, including finishing the pirate adventures, going on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, and lastly, the Jungle Cruise (better to do at nighttime). We even rode the steam train for Grey, caught a clown act, and paid homage to old-time Disney by riding “It’s a Small World,” which Evie absolutely loved!
Ended the day carrying Evie and Grey out of the park after the Main Street Electrical Parade, the Magic Castle light show (amazing!) and the way-past-bedtime fireworks.
A day to remember…
It looks like you guys have been having a blast! I wish I could’ve come along for the adventure and soaked up a couple rays with you! We have about 4 and a half feet of snow here so a little trip to Florida would be perfect. I hope everyone has enjoyed their escape from this never ending winter, and who knows, a couple of years from now when you take a trip to Florida, I could be one of your pilots 😉 Look forward to seeing everyone at some point this summer!! Say hi for me! 🙂
You could fly us down and then take care of the kids. 🙂 It rained two days out of our three weeks…Nice tans and glowing spirits for our drive back into winter.
Hi guys, it sounds like you had a great day. I don’t think Brandon remembers his trip to Disney World with Katie and Emily. So I think you should take them with you next time. Ahhh, I can still hear the tune of “Its a small small world”.
Enjoy the rest of your time there and bring home some of the warmth – see you all soon.
“Oh there’s just one moon and one golden sun, and a smile means friendship to everyone….” 🙂
Thanks for the update. I am so sorry we have not been in contact as a class. Last week was a blur. I will try to much harder this week. It looks like such a great trip.
We have two or three more posts that will go up in the next few days, finishing up our trip. Would love to see a class comment, but if you don’t find the time, we will be home Wednesday!
I think I will give the Merida hairdo a try for spring. Time for a change…what do you girls think 😉
So glad you were able to escape to the warmer south for a while. I love winter, but this one is never ending. Hope to see you soon!
I think you had Merida’s hair first! And the fiery spirit that accompanies curly red hair… We leave in less than 12 hours. I think I’ll go sit on the balcony and pretend I don’t hear interstate 4, but rather crickets and grass swaying.
