So many things to see and do. As first timers, we didn't really know where to begin. I had booked our Magic Your Way passes online and had selected Fast Pass options for the day; but beyond that, I had NO CLUE what was a must see or the best order in which to do things. A lot of the day was fly by the seat of our pants; but all in all, we had a blast.
One of the best parts about the time of year we chose to visit, everything was done up for Christmas. For me, this made it extra special as I was able to combine my two most favourite things...Disney and Christmas. Needless to say, I was in bliss!
Pickle was super excited to be meeting many of her favourite Disney characters; little did she know I had booked a fast pass for her to meet Ariel, her favourite Princess and who she was most looking forward to meeting! Before that, we got in a few rides. This is Pickle and I waiting for our fast pass time to ride Splash Mountain, our first ride of the trip!
Of course, it wouldn't be a trip to Disney without ears! Pickle was the first to pick out the ones she wanted.
We took the train from Frontierland over to Fantasyland to be in the right place for our visit with Ariel. Little did we know we'd actually see REAL wildlife on the train ride. Two young deer actually crossed right in front of us. Unfortunately, they were too quick for me to snap a photo; but the kids thought it was fantastic.
We made it! Now onto the big moment...
I don't think Boo was too excited by all these meet and greets; but he was a good sport. That smile for Pickle says it all.
Our day wouldn't be complete without some more rides. While Pretty, Boo and I went to ride The Seven Dwarfs Mine Ride, Mr. Twingle and Pickle went to have some carousel fun of their own.
We rounded off the day with a couple more visits: Elsa and Anna and of course the main man himself MICKEY!!!
Overall, day 1 was a success. We didn't get to see and do everything; mostly because it's impossible but also because we didn't really know what or where to go. Good thing we have an extra day, as we got a 5 day park pass. If we're up for it, I think another day at Magic Kingdom is required.
