A Magical Day

  We started our day at Magical Kingdom. We we got there as the Disney characters opened the park. It's really fun to hear the music and feel the excitement with the millions waiting with us. Well...not millions, but alot of people.

Russ loves roller coasters...

   We headed to FantasyLand 'cause we had not really explored this new section of Magic Kingdom. It's wicked cute. Barnstormer is a new roller coaster for those who are faint of heart-namely me. I went on and had my eyes opened the whole time. That's bravery....
  The weather was a little overcast but very warm. I think it was in the 80's.  It was lovely compared to 12 inches of snow that I heard Portland, Maine got yesterday.

The Big Top
 We went into what I call the Big Top. It was really a sourvenir place , but it looked cool. I love the lights and colors that are there. 
Yummies under The Big Top

Not to mention the yummies that are in the glass case above. I used my Magical willpower to not buy anything to eat here. Call me proud....

Winnie the Pooh ride

  We continued to walk through FantasyLand to see what we haven't experienced. We came upon a Winnie the Pooh ride. Who doesn't like Winnie the Pooh? So we went in. It was cute. We sat in the honey jar to ride through. It went pretty fast so many of my pics were blurry. Here are some good ones.

So cute...

  We finally met up with the kids after eating a Dole Whip. I don't have a picture of these yummy treats cause we ate them so fast. I'll get a pic tomorrow.. if I can contain my excitement of having one of these luscious concoctions.

Love you Johhny Depp...
   We all then headed to Pirates of the Carribean ride. We had been on it just before the Dole Whips, but we went on again in the spirit of family solidarity and it's a fun ride, too.

   Next we all went on the Jungle ride. It is a nice ride on a boat through the jungle with animatronic animals. Again it was a somewhat fast ride so some pictures were blurry. Here are the good ones.

An animal meeting of the minds
What a great name for our boat...
                                                       One great ride for families is the Tomorrow Land Speedway. The kids( That's including Tom.) got to drive a race car. Kids can go by themselves if the parents let them.  

Driving home

We ate lunch and then Russ and I went to The Hall of Presidents and Monsters Inc. We were quite pooped by then. We all met up and headed towards the buses. The pool and hot tub was calling our names. What a nice end to a great day.

The Lobby

Here are some pics around Beach Club.

  1. Looks like your day was better than mine! Glad you all are having a good time! More snow here on Wednesday. Ugh! Shivering just thinking about it and it isn't my temperature! Have fun!

  2. The picture of everyone riding in the cars was great! I didn't capture all of them in one photo! Great shot!
