Thursday we headed to Magic Kingdom!
Our first stop was to meet TinkerBell at Town Square Theatre.
Then we hopped in line to meet Mickey - the only one who talks!
The mouse himself took a moment to sing Persephone the Happy Birthday song!
But the video for that is on my cell phone.
I don't know why, but we almost ALWAYS do Magic Kingdom counter clockwise.
After walking through Main Street U.S.A. we stopped and got some pastries at Starbucks and headed towards Tomorrowland.
We rode Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
Then Hardy took Persephone on the Astro Orbiter.
The three of us rode The People Mover
"Paging Dr. Morrow, Dr. Tom Morrow" :)
Hardy went and rode Space Mountain while Persephone and I sat down for Carousel of Progress. A lot of people find this one cheesy,
but it's nostalgic for me and I love every minute of it.
From there we took to the new Fantasyland and let Persephone have fun
on Dumbo and Goofy's Barnstormer.
She did superb on her first "roller coaster"!
She also rode Haunted Mansion - so proud of that :)
In front of Belle's castle
We had a fabulous lunch at Be Our Guest.
The check in process was a little time consuming, but I like that they brought
your food to you -vs- you carrying a tray.
We didn't sit in the main dining room, obviously EVERYONE was trying to do that.
Hardy and I both had braised pork with mashed potatoes and vegetables. I had the masters cupcake (with the gray stuff) and it really was delicious.
I think the icing is made out of crushed oreo's.
As soon as we put her in the stroller and walked over to Adventureland she zonked out.
I changed our fastpasses for Jungle Cruise to a later time so she could ride it.
Once she woke up we did the Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Peter Pan, the Carousel, then Hardy and I took turns using our FastPass for Seven Dwarfs.
For dinner we ate at Crystal Palace with Pooh and his friends.
I'm always surprised, Disney buffets are still pretty darn decent food.
Pooh, Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore all came to the table to visit Persephone.
She was so cute and sweet waiting for them.
From there we did our Jungle Cruise passes, rode The Magic Carpets of Aladdin again.
Then went to ride Dumbo, Barnstormer and The Little Mermaid.
Once we finished riding The Little Mermaid, we got in line to meet Ariel!
Luckily after that the wait time for Cinderella/Rapunzel and Elsa/Anna had dropped to 30min (they were both 70+ all day) so we went ahead and jumped in line!
Is it just me or does this Cinderella favor Zooey Deschanel?
Elsa was sweet and wrote Happy Birthday in her autograph book!
On the bus ride back to the hotel, I realized we were literally at MK for 14hrs.
