Ugh….It is getting harder and harder to wake up each day so early! We though we planned this trip low key, and that is how is started out, BUT there is sooo much to do in WDW that I kept adding things until we were super busy. I like it that way!
I woke up nice and early today, Sunday and sat outside and enjoyed the view from our room. It was so pretty! I woke Pete up and we started getting ready. We had a very important date at the Castle this morning for breakfast at 8:00am! We got a bus and were on our way to the Magic Kingdom with no trouble at all.
Ahhh….When I walk through that train station I get goose bumps!
It is so great! I love it! The park was nice and empty since it didn’t technically open for another hour.
We strolled hand in hand up main street and took lots of pictures. It is just so pretty. I am happiest standing on Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom looking at the Castle. It is my Happy Place for sure.
We checked into the Castle and got to meet Cinderella right away.
Then we headed up the steps and were led to our table by the window overlooking Fantasy Land. How awesome! The table was decorated with confetti in the shape of Royal Coaches and castles.
Ohhh no matter how ofter we do this breakfast (every trip) I love it! I love being inside the castle. It is truly something everyone should get to experience.
Breakfast was yummy and we met all of the Princesses: Snow White, Aurora, Mary Poppins (not really a princess, but nice anyway) and Belle.
When Breakfast was over I made a fast bathroom break, it was packed in there and then we headed out to Fantasy Land. Of course I checked and someone had already awoke Tinkerbell, maybe next time! Then Pete tried his luck at the Sword in the Stone….He was not strong enough!
I wanted to do a few things this morning that we usually skip over due to time constraints and the like. First up the Carousel. I found Cinderella’s horse, but it was up really high and I couldn’t get up on it, well I probably could have, but I picked one that was lower to the ground (remember this)! It was fun and Pete took tons of picture of me riding.
I am happy we did this. I couldn’t get him on a horse, but I enjoyed my 3 minutes! Then it was time to get off….Remember that horse that was down low when I got on, well now it was really high! LOL What was I gonna do? I tried getting off by sliding down, but then I was doing a split with my leg up near my ear! LOL Thank goodness Pete didn’t get any pictures of this. It was so funny. I am Thankful I am flexible. LOL
We strolled around and saw a line forming at Toontown, must be to meet Tinkerbell I told Pete. We got in line for a ride I have not rode since I was like three. For some reason I always Skip it. OMG we had so much fun. Pete was pretending to be scared, then I spun it really fast and he was laughing. It was great!
I have saw a picture that my favorite Photographers, The Roots had taken with the spinning tea cups and I tried to recreate that shot. After 45 tried I got one or two I am semi happy with!
Then I saw Alice and the Mad Hatter getting on the Tea Cups. How fun!
I got a few pictures of them and then we headed over to get in line to meet them. Pete had never met Alice before! The shock! LOL
Now I tried for a Tea Cup picture again. This one is my favorite.
It was almost 10am now so We headed to the line for Toon Town. We went straight to the Judge’s tent, did not pass go, did not collect $200 dollars, just went right there at rope drop and the line was already 75 minutes long to meet Tinkerbell! NO WAY! We were not going to waste that kind of time in a line in the value season!
We got in line for the princesses since it was only 10 minutes. I lent a lady my Cell phone in line, she was waiting for her husband who had their camera. She got ahold of him and he met her at the front of the line. YAY! her little girls would have pictures. I was fully ready to offer to take some and email them to her had she not go her husband.
We went into the room and Met Cinderella again, and Sleeping Beauty. I was so hoping for Belle in the Yellow Dress. After our meet and greet we went into the store. Ugh gift shops are Pete’s weakness. We used a snack credit and got a peanut butter cup and water.
Pete took this while I was looking at the Jibbitz.
We bought my niece, Alyssa some Mr. Potato head parts and we each picked out our first of many Christmas Tree Ornaments. Then we jumped on the train and rode a complete circle around the park. Once we got to the front we got off and headed for the Monorail to the TTC.
We were going to spend the afternoon in Animal Kingdom. At the TTC we went to find the bus for the Animal Kingdom. This was the longest wait all trip!
We got there around 11:30 and we had ADR’s for noon at Yak & Yeti. It was early for lunch, but it was all I could get.
We took some pictures and walked around and checked out the sites a bit and then we checked Yak and Yeti.
This was the first time here. Pretty cool inside. We had a great lunch and we talked.
I took a percosit for my hurting blister on my foot. It was god awful! I was then feeling all kinds of loopy! LOL
After lunch we went to Expedition Everest and waited in the longest line of our trip. Like 45-50 minutes. It is sooo worth it though.
What a great roller coaster. Took a bunch of Pictures Waiting in Line.
Has anyone seen this little guy hidden in one of the displays(Love the Mickey Ears):
I took pictures as we cruised around the mountain.
After our ride we were both tired. We knew we had a HUGE day tomorrow morning so we headed back to the hotel to rest.
I took a wonderful nap. It was so relaxing! While I was in the shower Vicki from Peddles called. She had my Bouquet for the photo shoot tomorrow! YAY! I sent Pete down to pick it up and I finished getting ready.
We had a Date with Mikkel and Jason before dinner. We were worried about being late and we were feeling so lazy we took a cab to the Grand Floridian. We got there and were super early! LOL figures. We found a nice sofa and sat and talked about our wonderful day so far.
Not too long passed and Mikkel called they were almost to the Grand Floridian and she had a present for me!
She is the sweetest and soooo did not need to bring me a present, but I am sooo glad that she did! It was a cake! Not a real one, but one she decorated and made so I would have a top layer to save. It is sooo pretty!
We headed up to the bar there, and it was sooo freaking loud. I told her all about the troubles with DCL and what she should do differently. We looked at my pictures and ohhed and ahhed over them. It was great to be sitting with her. Hours of chatting online and phone calls were nothing compared to seeing each other face to face. Pete and Jason were quite since they would have had to yell to be heard that damn music! Plus I don’t think Jason was feeling well. No fruity mixed girly drinks for him!
It was almost time for our Dinner reservations at Narcoosees so we had to tell them goodbye. Not with out a few pictures first. I look goofy in them though. I don’t think Pete even checked the screen after he took them!
We got to Narcoosees and we sat outside and looked at the Castle! Sooo pretty! We had requested a Castle view table so we had to wait like 15 minutes.
When we were seated we had special Menu’s that said Congratulations. It was so nice. Pete got the lobster and I got the Surf and Turf.
YUMMY! We also got Congratulations deserts.
Our Bill was $200! yikes! Thank god for the dinning plan.
I wanted to hang out for the fireworks, but Pete convinced me to go to bed. I did have to get up at 2:50am the next morning!
We took the monorail to the Magic Kingdom and then the bus to the Animal Kingdom.
I was asleep by 9:30! What a long full day!
