More Disney Magic

I decided to post some more highlights from our trip to Orlando.

Last Friday we visited the Magic Kingdom. Did you know that if you arrive at the front gate a little before park opening there’s a little gate opening ceremony? I had no clue but I insisted that we arrive as close to 9 AM as possible to beat the crowds. To our surprise, the Disney railroad chugged into the Main Street Station right above us. All of the characters got out and did a little dance. Then Mickey Mouse opened the gates to the park. It was awesome! Wildman loves choo-choos so it was especially exciting for him. Ahhhh, the magic of Disney! You’ve got to love it through a child’s eyes.

We were meeting our friends after their princess breakfast at Epcot. We had a couple of hours before they arrived to meet us so we got Cutie Pie a Mickey ear hat to match Wildman’s:

We had it embroidered with his name. Too cute!

Then we went to Adventureland to check out The Swiss Family Robinson tree house, The Jungle Cruise, and Aladdin’s Magic Carpet Ride. Here are the guys on their carpet:

We went on to ride The Pirates of the Caribbean, the Tomorrowland train thing and the Astro Orbiter rocket ship ride. We met our friends for lunch in Frontierland at the Pecos Bill restaurant.

Here are the kids enjoying Mickey ice cream bars in line at The Haunted Mansion:

Cutie Pie caught a little snooze in line:

Here are the guys on their carousel horses:

We went on to ride many more rides but I don’t have pictures from those. Here’s a parting shot of Wildman and I on Dumbo:

A good time was had by all!
