How can you have a bad day when you wake up at Disney?? Impossible!!! Although Im not feeling too good, it was our first complete day!
The dads left fairly early and super excited to do the Richard Petty Exotic Driving... It took them almost 3 hours, and they both came back even more excited than they left!! They loved it!! You get to look at all the cars and take pictures, then tey show you and instructional video and then you get 6 laps in the car of your dreams . I honestly dont care much for cars so I understood half of what they said, but in the end they think ot was worth every penny and would do it again in a heartbeat!
The rest of us, except for my voice which got lost somewhere between the airport and wdw and hasnt been found yet!, got ready and left for breakfast at 1900 Park Fare.
They were running very late, so we were able to get Tatiana her Jasmine costume and enjoy the lobby and easter eggs! Before going in
Once inside.... The kids just lost it !! Hahahahahahaha, they were expecting breakfast, not: Pooh, Tigger, Alice, The Mad Hatter .. Aaaaaaaand Mary Poppins. For the record, Tatiana adores Mary Poppins, we went to watch the broadway show a few months back, she knows the story, the characters names and lately can even dance a few numbers , well, she was 125% star struck!
Loved the Mad Hatter!
MH: where are you from?
MH: oh! And where's your sombrero?
Tatiana: just burst out laughing
And this is why I love Disney!!!!
Then we were off to MK for the day and managed to get there at noon when it was packed! The park was supposed to close at midnight but while there an announcement was made that it would close at 1am.
Still, we managed to get all 3 girls haircuts (yipee! Another thing off MY bucket list!, both girls got their 1st haircut at the Main Street Barber Shop!). Tatiana and Ana Pau both got pixie dust and up dos, and then we were ready for Fantasyland! We did: its a small world (longest wait of the day, 35mins,not too bad) the carrousel, phillarmagic, peter pan, winnie the pooh, the tea cups, dumbo, and everyone except Natalia and I got on the Barnstormer! Thank God for fast passes and and obsessive compulsive planner (aka ME)!
We had a wonderful dinner at Crystal Palace. I think the dinner buffet far outweights the breakfast one! We loved the food, Tatiana could have eaten 2 whole chickens! and the characters were just wonderful. Natalia loooooooved Eeyore, she kept hugging his leg and caressing his back when he moved to the next table!
We also watched, no, not watch, we were part of the move it shake it street party... Tatiana and Ana Pau danced their little feet out . Tip!!! Catch the last party, the sun is already going down so its not as hot and you will enjoy it much more
We watched the Electrical Parade. Wow!! I hadnt watched it since I was probably 10, the music brought back so many memories of being there with my parents and siblings. It just seemed impossible to be standing below the castle watching it with MY children! Of course I cried for the duration of said parade
Also, there were 3 high school marching bands before the parade. LOVED them!!! The last one came
Down Main Street marching to the Mickey Mouse Club theme song, I got goosebumps!!!
We were able to sit right beneath the castle for the magic, the memories and you... Loved it!! And for Wishes, not the best spot for the fireworks ( I thought the show was above the castle, but from there it looks as if its from behind??) still, it ws THE perfect spot to see Tinkerbell fly out of the castle and you cant beat watching wishes SITTING down in a park thats packed! Perfect way to end the day
Only downside of the day? We found 2 cockroaches in our room! Yuck!! And my throat is still killing me, I haveno voice and the parks dont sell chloraseptic!!
