Magical Mondays - Disney 2013 Day 2

We started out the morning of our first full day, Monday, later than expected. My sweet friend, Dara, was supposed to go with us to the parks but she was up all night Sunday night with a nasty spider bite. We ended up going to Downtown Disney to meet up with my friend, Viadly, and to see our Sunset sister, Ashley and her new fiance before they went back to Philly. 

Viadly, Ashley and I

Viadly was our paparazzi for day one. We have a LOT more pictures from Magic Kingdom than anything else. 1) We are not big fans of picture taking 2) after our wedding a couple days later, I was not in a picture taking mood 3) we both ended up with the flu before we left and were not thinking about pictures.

 Oh, you know... Just drinking a Spark while waiting for the parade. haha
 Right before the parade started, we became friends with the family next to us. Unfortunately, the husband got stuck on the outer ring of the parade route and didn't make it back in time for the parade. So JP volunteered to put the daughter on his shoulders so that she could see. She was absolutely giddy about it.
 With the rest of our new friends ;-)

 Watching Wishes! 
 It was extra magic hour at MK, so while the majority of the crowd stuck around to watch the second parade we took off to do some rides. 
 Jungle Cruise
 Swiss Family Robinson Tree House
 Pirates of the Caribbean
 Pre- Splash Mountain
Post - Splash Mountain. Walking right on to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. 

Overall, it was a late starting day but it was a great day and a perfect way to introduce JP to Disney World. Mission: Make JP fall in love with Disney was a success. YES!

  1. When we were at Disney World the Fantasyland expansion was under construction, but I can't wait to go back and see it all! The Little Mermaid was always my favorite, so I'm so excited that there's now an official ride!
