Day 3 ... Magic Kingdom
January 21, 2014
On day 3 of our vacation, we headed to the most magical place on Earth, Disney's Magic Kingdom!
We got there shortly after opening & the first thing we did was set up our Fast Pass Plus so that we could ride Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin & Peter Pan's Flight later in the day.
And then it was time for rides!
We started with the Mad Tea Paty in Fantasyland.
After that we rode Dumbo the Flying Elephant.
This ride is awesome because it has a big area where the kids can play without losing your place in line!
Next was The Barnstormer
I was asked to hold this card in line so that I could help provide an accurate wait time for the ride. It made me feel pretty darn important, lol.
And then we went to Pete's Silly Sideshow where we met Daisy
(Alex was very worried about finding Daisy at the Magic Kingdom because she was the only Mickey character that we didn't meet at Epcot the day before.)
and saw Minnie again.
Then we went to Big Top Souvenirs so that Alex could get a pair of sunglasses.
They were so cool that I wanted to try them on too!
Next we rode The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
And then Prince Charming's Regal Carrousel.
It started raining while we were riding this.
And stopped raining as we were getting off.
The kids tried to pull the sword out of the stone.
Alex went first.
That way didn't work, so he tried another way.
He couldn't get it out so Addy decided to give it a try.
When that didn't work, she tried another way, lol!
But sadly, that didn't work either.
We were getting hungry & it was starting to rain some more (a cold front was coming in) so we ducked into Pinnocchio's Village Haus & ate lunch. And by the time we were done eating, the rain had completely stopped. So that worked out perfectly!
After lunch, we rode It's a Small World.
And then The Under the Sea Journey of the Little Mermaid.
Then we watched the 4D show Mickey's PhillarMagic. I thought this show was awesome! Probably one of my favorite things in all of the parks!
This girl loved it too! She kept trying to catch Donald Duck as he flew by.
After the show, we had just about ridden everything in Fantasyland, expect for Peter Pan's Flight which we had a fast pass to ride later & the Enchanted Tales with Belle that had a 60 minute wait time, so we headed over to Tomorrowland to use our Space Mountain fast pass.
Nick asked Alex if he was sure that he wanted to ride Space Mountain & he said yes. It's been 6 years since I last went to Disney World so I had honestly forgotten what Space Mountain was like, even forgotten that it was a roller coaster. But as it started & I realized that it was indeed a roller coaster, I knew Alex was not going to like it & I was right! He was sitting in front of me so I wrapped my arms around him & kept them there the whole time. Poor guy was screaming "Make it stop!" all throughout the ride. When the ride was finished, I asked him if he liked it & he said "I liked it but my stomach didn't!"
Addy on the other hand loved it & wanted to ride it again!
After that, we used another fast pass & rode
Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin.
And then we watched the show Stich's Great Escape.
(This scared Alex a little bit too.)
After that we ran back over to Fantasyland to use our fast pass to ride Peter Pan's Flight
and then went back to Tomorrowland to ride the Tomorrowland Speedway.
Alex and I were in the first car & Addy and Nick were in the car behind us. The cars were on a rail & could not pass one another. And because of that, Addy could not 'win' which really really upset her.
After that, we were done! We caught a little bit of the electrical parade as were leaving, but didn't stay to watch it all since it was already 7pm & we still had to catch the ferry back to the parking lot.
We had another long day at the Magic Kingdom, but I think you can tell from the look on this little girl's face that it was a fantastic day!
