Magic Kingdom

After our breakfest with mickey, we had a bit of time to kill before Magic kingdom opened for the day. We hopped on the monorail and road it around the park. We then stopped at Magic kingdom. The kids were beyond excited went they spotted the castle from the monorail and I have to admit I was a little teary eyed seeing there excitment. Entering disney is defiantly magical and it is so easy to get caught up in this fairytale land.
The day was a hot one. The hottest day we had the entire time and coming from a cold winnipeg day before, it was defaintly a shock to the system, but wonderful all at the same time. This is the first time the kids have experienced heat, in the middle of winter and they thought it was so exciting to be wearing shorts and tanktops.
Thanx to the disney queen in the family (Nichole) She had hooked me up with loads of advice that helped our trip run extremely smooth, included software that printed our iternary, and listed ride wait times, etc..... Following this helped us walk on every ride and elimated every wait. Defiantly worth the $20, although I did lose my iternary on the teacups on one time and panicked......thankfully, it was still there when I went back to check.
Dumbo was the kids first disney ride. Although Liam and I only discovered the buttun that controls our dumbos up and down movements at the very end. It was still fun!

Thunder mountain railway.
Splash mountain. Our favorite. We rode this one alot.
The haunted mansion. This was Liam's favorite ride, although the others didn't like it much.
Mickey show at the castle. Cassidys first glimpse of her favorite princess Sleeping beauty.
Liam at 4pm on day 1. Exhausted. We headed back to our room for a swim and rest break. Highly recommend staying at a disney resort. The buses were always running and it was a short trip back to the resort, and when we wanted to return to the park, we just hopped back on our bus. Plus the transportation is free.
We headed back that evening to watch Wishes. What a perfect way to end our first disney day.

Off to day, typhoon lagoon water park.
