Disney Day 2 - The Magic Kingdom

It was cold but that made for beautiful blue skies!
This picture is blurry but we are still waiting for our photopass CD to come.

What a beautiful sight at night!

We planned our vacation using the Unofficial Guide of Disney. That book was a LIFESAVER! We went the entire week and only had to wait a max of 10 minutes. When we go back we will definitely use it again.

We went to the Magic Kingdom on Monday and went to meet Ariel. Since we got there right when the park opened, we were first in line. They let us in to see Ariel and we had 10 minutes with her by ourselves. Ethan & Mia couldn't believe that they were meeting Ariel! We got some pictures and her autograph then did most of the rides in Fantasyland. The weather was colder than we thought it was going to be (it was only 57 with 30mph winds) so we tried to do things inside. The one attraction that both kiddos didn't like was Mickey's PhilharMagic. We think it was because it got so loud and it was a 4D attraction. Since Mia was a little frightened after Peter Pan's flight we didn't know how she would do in the Haunted Mansion. She ended up waving to the ghosts and Ethan was in awe with it. Pirates of the Caribbean was also a very big hit! We had lunch at the park and then headed to the hotel for naps. After dinner we came back for "Wishes" - the fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom. It was a MAGICAL DAY!
