This is a recap of our May 2010 trip….
We had one last Give A Day ticket to redeem for Fastpasses. We decided to do it on Friday at the Magic Kingdom again. Can you tell that Magic Kingdom is our favorite park? We redeemed for the Fastpass option and my husband and son took the monorail and my daughter and I took the ferry boats. We both got to the entrance at the same exact time! How funny!
We arrived in time to watch the Welcome Show. I just love this show that they do. I highly suggest you make it to the Magic Kingdom before Rope Drop and see it. It’s such a great way to start your day!
We decided to take it slow this morning and concentrate more on meeting the characters then on anything else. We waited there in front of the train station after entering the parks to meet both Daisy and Pluto. The kids just love to meet the characters! Then we jumped on the Horse and Trolly to go down Main Street. This really isn’t the fastest way to get to the castle, but we had never done it before.
When we reached the castle, we headed to the right side and up the path there. We stopped to say hello to the Step Mother and Step Sisters from Cinderella. They NEVER disappoint! Then we walked up the path a bit more and met Snow White. She kissed Jacob on the head and we couldn’t get the kiss off all day! It was too funny.
I sent Jason to Fastpass Peter Pan while we made our way to Toontown for Rope Drop. Emily and Jason went to meet the Princesses and Jacob and I went to hug Mickey and Minnie again. Yes, that boy is obsessed! We were first in line to meet them. Unfortunately we didn’t get a tour of the house. They actually allowed a family to go back (I’m thinking it was Make a Wish) so while we made it as the first family after Rope Drop, we didn’t get the tour. Which is more than fine with me. I’d gladly give every spot I have in line up for another kid.
We then rode The Barnstormer twice before catching the train to Adventureland. I sent Jason to fastpass Big Thunder while we waited to meet Woody and Jessie. Everytime we wait, the character has to go potty or check on their horse or their cheesecake or whatever. I think it’s happened at least 10 times this trip! Which is fine….. but still. Why does it always end up being us? :P
After meeting them (and they are very well worth the wait), we grabbed a quick snack and then headed over to meet Pirate Goofy. Jacob is now terrified of boat rides (thanks to my husband convincing me to let him go on Splash), so he wouldn’t ride Pirates. But Jason took Emily on a quick ride. We hung out in the awesome gift shop.
