Mommy, Miriam, and Vivian experienced Disney for the first time while we were in Florida. We took lots and lots of pictures so the girls could "remember" their first adventure into this magic world.
We spent one day in Magic Kingdom.
As you can see, the weather was perfect!
With very light crowds, we were able to get one most rides with hardly any wait at all!
We saw a 3-D show that Miriam loved! Often, she would hold her hands out to try to catch the characters as they seemed to hop out of the screen at her!
Vivian, on the other hand, was scared of the whole thing and clung to her Daddy. She still says to him daily, "Let's talk about scared, Daddy. What happened to the eyes?" It didn't make sense to her then, it still doesn't now, but she knew she felt safe with her Daddy and loves to hear about it.
Then we went to the most magical part of our day...
Belle's house and the Beast's castle. This is part of the new Fantasyland that just opened.
Miriam was asked to be enchanted silverware for their re-enactment of the day Belle and the Beast fell in love.
The girls got to meet Belle!
A real, live princess!!
We took in a few shows, all were really well done.
Vivian still talks about the Country Bear Jamboree.
Mommy thought this little bear was pretty funny singing about about tears in her wine. Is that allowed at Disney?
A trip on Aladdin's magic carpets....
...a Jungle Cruise...
...two trips on the Dumbo ride...
...and much more (It's a Small World, Winnie the Pooh, The Little Mermaid, the Buzz Lightyear ride, the Carousel of Progress, the teacups ride, food, gift shops, etc. etc. etc.). Yet somehow we didn't even cover the whole park! Vivian did take a nap in the Hall of Presidents which kept her going strong all day.
We stayed for the fireworks show at the end of the night. It was spectacular.
Then it was time to take our two very tired little girls home. Miriam has asked for promises that we will go back. Yes, Miriam, someday we will take you back. Just give your Mom and Dad a few years to recover, ok?
