It was finally the day. The day we had been waiting for. We were going to see Cinderella's castle! We had to wake the kids up in the morning. See, I thought we would be at the park before it opened, to see the characters come in on the train. Nope. That was the first thing that didn't go "according to plan." But that was ok. The kids were awoken by me singing, "M-I-C, K-E-Y, M-O-U-S-E! Mickey Mouse, Mickey Mouse..." and they both awoke with a smile on their face. We decided to take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom so we could see more of the area as we got there. This was also the monorail that goes through the Contemporary Resort. I loved that as a kid.
I have to say one thing; it was HOT, HOT, HOT! Thank goodness for the month of July we had here because that really got us ready for this vacation. We were sweating the instant we stepped outside. So keeping that in mind, sometimes the kids weren't always happy to get out of the strollers (which saved us!) for pictures.
Mickey's Philharmagic; a 3-D animated movie where Donald thinks he can use Mickey's sorcerer's hat to direct the orchestra. This was also a VERY cute moment with the kids because they were both grabbing for the things coming at us. So sweet. The music was great in this movie too. This came as a recommendation from many people we talked to before the trip, but it was definite that we were going to see it when their teacher, Miss Kara (from last year) said it was her favorite. C would do anything she said was her favorite...he loves her!
Stay tuned for more about the Magic! Albeit sooner than later, I hope!
