Day 2 - Disney

Day 2 was all about the Magic Kingdom. We woke up early in order to be to the park by opening at 9:00am. After enjoying a ride on the monorail we were off and running. We barely made it into the park before we were greeted by none other than Minnie and Pluto. Then it was down Main Street where we were left speechless and we just took it all in. My keen eye caught Mary Poppins as we headed toward the castle, and then we were off to the teacups. In the morning we enjoyed a play with Belle, and then we split up with Lily heading over to Bibbidi Bobbed Boutique, and Dad and I heading over to Space Mountain and Splash Mountain. We joined back up to see Merida and have lunch, and then we were off again to hit a few rides and use our fast passes at Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin and Peter Pan's Flight. We also discovered Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and that roller coasters are our new best friend. We can't wait to try out every single roller coaster Disney has to offer while we are here. We took a short break in the afternoon and headed back to the hotel for a bit. The rest was short lived though as we had tickets that evening to celebrate at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party where we were able to trick-or-treat in the Magic Kingdom. We changed into costumes (Luke Skywalker for me and Cinderella for Lily) and headed back to the Magic Kingdom where we were able to score a visit with Anna and Elsa and we managed to take a ride on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train which was wicked!!! To end the evening we found a spot to watch Mickey's Boo To You Halloween Parade which was so cool because it is the one night all of the villains are brought out at Disney. The Magic of Disney was definitely alive and well as we survived nearly 15 straight hours without complaint, and all we could think of as we drifted off to sleep is that dreams really do come true!
