Magic Kingdom ~ Day 2

We started the morning off with breakfast at Chef Mickey’s in the Contemporary Resort.

After breakfast we rode the monorail back to Magic Kingdom for the day. Today was great! After we entered the park, Allie and I rode the Carousel and It’s a Small World (really should have a 2 ride limit on this one!) while Raymond and Abby rode Dumbo and then Carousel. The girls and I watched the Dream Along with Mickey show in front of the Castle (for the first time) while Raymond went to ride Splash Mountain and Big River Railroad (twice). After the girls and I took a few pictures of the Mickey & Minnie bushes we “got caught” by the Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party. This was a lot of fun. Allie got to dance with Jessie from Toy Story. Jessie took a picture with both of the girls during the Street Party as well. The girls were able to catch streamers at the end of the parade. The girls and I then went to ride Aladdin’s Magic Carpets. Afterwards we met back up with Raymond and we all went over and boarded the Jungle Cruise. When we got off the Jungle Cruise we heard Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee! starting. Abby decided she had to go potty during this so off to the potty we went, by the time get back to Raymond and Allie the show was wrapping up. Raymond went to ride the Pirates of the Caribbean while we had a snack. After our snack the girls and I headed over to the bayou to meet Princess Tiana and Naveen from The Princess and The Frog. Yesterday at Hollywood Disney we were able to get our free kids tickets to see the movie when it comes out in December. After meeting the Princess we walked back toward the Castle and caught the Dream Along with Mickey show, again.

Street Party Show

Fireworks at the end of the Mickey show, I took this while waiting for the parade to start.

At this time Raymond went to see if Space Mountain was open. It has been closed for renovations and was not suppose to open till this weekend. It was open when we got there! He got a Fast Pass and then went to get in line to ride. Meanwhile the girls and I went to spend their gift card from Ryan and Amy on Main Street. Abby bought a Sleeping Beauty Doll with a little help from Mom and Allie bought an Ariel ornament. We then had ice cream on Main Street and found a spot to watch the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade. While we were waiting for the parade to start the girls played with hula-hoops and I met a really nice lady from New York City. We talked for over 30 minutes! She told me she wants to visit Memphis one day and of course I want to go to NYC. The parade was a great as it was on Wednesday. During the parade Abby looks at Raymond and says, “This is the same parade from Wednesday. {Pause} We forgot to go to church on Wednesday.”

Disney thinks of everything ~ They had Cast Members bring out toys for the kids to play with while we waited for the parade to start.

After the parade we went and took so pictures in the candy cane garden and then rode the Walt Disney Railroad around the park with a short stop in Mickey’s Toontown Fair. Abby and I rode Goofy’s Barnstorming Roller Coaster while Allie and Raymond played in playground. They had one last look at Mickey and Minnie’s house and back to the train we went to go back to Main Street. We then told the girls to say good-bye to the Magic Kingdom. Allie started to cry and said I don’t want to leave I want to stay. The felling was mutually J I told them we would come back again.

Today’s Picture Count = 213
