Magic Kingdom….Great Fun and Memories Made

(Wednesday, Nov 14, 2012)

Wednesday morning we were up bright and early, ready for a day of fun at the Magic KingdomIMG_8593 - Copy

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.

When we arrived at the MK I recommended that we take the train to Fantasyland.IMG_8598

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.IMG_8609

The rest of us like to climb high and Hannah, well Hannah loves to make us bounce up and down while I tease her about her crazy driving!IMG_8613


One of Bec’s favourite rides is the Tomorrowland Speedway and we had lots of fun there too!  Once again Hannah enjoyed driving.  IMG_8619


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.


More Disney classic rides.  Prince Charming’s CarouselIMG_8628

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! Smile

We enjoyed a ride on the Liberty BoatIMG_8644IMG_8642

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.   IMG_8649

Bec had waited patiently all day to meet Rapunzel and she had such fun with her.  It was sweet to see Bec trying to be all grown up and yet at the same time – it’s Rapunzel!!  IMG_8655

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!IMG_8660

Tomorrow – Epcot!


  1. Do you bring your laptop along for blogging or another device like ipad?

    1. Hi Kathy, The computer I use most often and take with me is a netbook with a 10" screen. It's the perfect size and weight for travel. I also have an iPod touch that I use to check email and take to the parks. All the WDW parks and resorts now have free wi-fi which means I can check lines, FastPasses and change dining reservations if necessary.

      I love the new wi-fi availability and how it allows options to update blogs, check-in for flights and do other things .

  2. Hi Catherine: Love the matching mickey and minnie t-shirts. Where did you get them made?
    Theresa in Cambridge, Ontario.

    1. Hi Theresa, I purchased the appliques from a gal on Etsy. Here's a link. Just a heads up that she no longer personalizes her appliques.

      I've ordered from Jan on 3 different occasions and she's been great to deal with each time. I'd highly recommend ordering from her.

  3. Love the matching family shirts!! Looks like a fun day!
