So today could not have gone any better!! Little Man was up early so we decided to try and make it to the gate openings at Magic Kingdom… Although, I will admit to being a little pessimistic that we wouldn’t get there in time, I’m happy to say we were even there 15 mins early. For those of you that don’t know (and I didn’t until recently when a dear friend enlightened me to so much more Disney info), there is an opening show with songs and dancing and then the train pulls in with all the characters aboard. Mickey Mouse then greets the crowd and the gates open. It’s worth seeing, if you never have.
Since we were the first in the park, we did everything in Fantasyland before 10:30… We even did Carson’s favorite (The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh) twice. We saw tons of characters: Woody, Jessie, Donald Duck and Pooh (of course). By 12:30 we were pretty happy with all we had accomplished, so we took the monorail over to Epcot to eat a late lunch at the Rose and Crown. Chris loves their Pub Burger… It’s a cheese burger with bacon and onion rings on it with a side of BBQ sauce if you’d like to add it to the burger.
A hidden find that my Princess 1/2 Marathon partner in crime, Amy and I found when I was here (childless) in February is Pooh and Tigger in the back of the toy store in England. There is always a short line (if there is even a line)
Today was a “no line” day so Carson was the only kid around. Since we were killing time waiting for our lunch table, we went to see Pooh and Tigger and then color Duffy the Bear (one of many free activities for the kiddos). With no other kids in sight, Pooh and Tigger came over and helped Carson color…. He was on cloud nine!!
