(Wednesday, Nov 14, 2012)
Wednesday morning we were up bright and early, ready for a day of fun at the Magic Kingdom.
Dad decided to skip this year’s Disney trip and we missed him. Hopefully next year he’ll join us. He enjoyed 2 quieter days recouping from his cold and doing a little golfing with Uncle Paul.
It may sound silly but this isn’t something that I’d choose to do again. As much as Main Street is bustling and crowded first thing in the morning, I missed that. I missed seeing the castle come into view and having our group picture taken with it in the background. Yup, next time it’s crowded Main Street for us with a huge smile on my face!
We did have a great time in Fantasyland though and the first ride Hannah introduced Nana and Papa to was her favourite, the Goofy Rollercoaster. She loves that ride and would ride it over and over again. From there we went on a ride that all could enjoy – Dumbo! A Disney classic and such fun. It’s nice now that there are two Dumbo's so the lines are not as long Bec is not a fan of heights so she and Mom ensured their Dumbo stayed down low.
We also went for a spin on the Buzz Lightyear ride.
Any day at Disney is made better with a snack of our guilty pleasure: caramel apples covered with peanuts.
and ‘it’s a small world.’ Hannah is in awe throughout this ride and I love to watch her little eyes as she takes it all in. If you listen very, very carefully you can also hear her singing along with the song. Sorry – you’ll probably find yourself singing it all day too!
and then settled in to watch the Main Street Electrical Parade. By this point Hannah was done and curled up in her stroller after the parade and went to sleep. We left Hannah napping with the grandparents while Bec and I went in to meet the princesses.
We made our way to our resort which was the new Art of Animation resort and stayed in a beautiful room in the Little Mermaid wing. If you have an opportunity to stay here I’d say to go for it for sure!
Tomorrow – Epcot!
