Day 1- The Magic Kingdom

Orlando, United States

Once we had parked in Pluto 11 and hoped a tram to the Tickets & Information Center, we decided to take the ferry to the Magic Kingdom, because the Magic Kingdom is a good 1.5 miles from the parking lot! So, you either get to the park by monorail or ferry…for this morning we chose ferry. After we arrived in the park we headed toward Tomorrowland!

In Tomorrowland we started off with the Monster’s Inc, Laugh Floor, which was a fun interactive show…they even chose Nick to be the ‘Dancin’ Man’! After that we walked over to Stitch’s Great Escape, then on to Space Mountain! After our pretty quick trip through space, we decided to continue with our space travel exploits and headed over to Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. It was a shooting adventure game and with a whopping 103,000 some-odd points our winner was….MOM! :) Yup! After our toils in Tomorrowland, we thought it was time that we visited Mickey in Mickey’s Toontown Fair.

While in Toontown we were able to explore both Mickey and Minnie’s houses and we got to see a couple of princesses and Mickey!

After our visit with our Disney friends we headed on over to Fantasyland to ride The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and Snow White’s Scary Adventure! We also hung out and watched Mickey’s PhilarMagic show, which was fun! (21,29)

After our Fantasyland fun, we headed back out to the car to catch some lunch, before heading back into the park for the Disney Dreams Come True Parade! (56,66,84, 96)

After the parade we hopped aboard the Walt Disney World Railroad and headed toward Frontierland. Once there we grabbed a few FastPasses to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, then went to visit the Haunted Mansion and “It’s a Small World,” while we waited for our FastPass return time. While we were waiting we also had time to catch the Dream Along with Mickey show in from of the castle.

After the show we rode Big Thunder Mountain, which was a fun, fast ride! From there we headed south toward Adventureland and took a ride on the Jungle Cruise. After our cruise arrived safely back to Adventureland we made our way toward Mainstreet U.S.A, and the exit, running into the SpectroMagic parade in the process!
It was a fun filled day that left us all exhausted, but looking forward to our next Disney adventure!
