Magic Kingdom!! I was up bright & early, my family was sleeping…. and still sleeping. I had promised I wouldn’t wear everyone out this time so I didn’t start making a lot of noise until 7:30. Finally everyone was up and ready by 8:30!!! I was dying to go!! My husband decided he could push me in a wheelchair, so I hoppled out to the bus and then into MK.
It took a few minutes to rent a wheelchair and we were finally going down Main Street!!! Madalynn and I had huge smiles! We stopped for a Mickey balloon and then Madalynn spied The Castle! She jumped up and down and kept saying “The Castle, The Castle”. I was sooo happy! We stopped for a photopass picture, the only picture we have with all 7 of us GRRRR . We walked down to the hub and a parade started so we stopped for the parade which thrilled Madalynn. It could not have been a more magical beginning to our trip!
Off to Fantasyland! The carrousel was first, where our one and only confrontation occurred. Madalynn wanted to ride a particular horse that had flowers on it, as Jessica put her on the horse a lady stopped her, she was going to ride that horse! It was next to the one she was putting her daughter on. Jessica put a protesting DGD on another horse. After the ride my smart mouth DD had to tell the woman that she hoped she enjoyed her ride on a horse that she stole from a 3-yr-old. The woman said “What was I supposed to do, my daughter was on the horse beside it” and of course DD told her in not very nice terms she could have stood beside the horse. DD has her father’s temperament!
So after that one upset, we moved onto Dumbo (10 min. wait), It’s a Small World & Snow White. DGD came out of Snow White and walked about 10 feet and started crying! It scared her! We quickly dried her tears, I thought O’NO, she will be afraid to ride other attractions (which didn’t happen)!
Time for lunch, we had an ADR for 12:45 at Liberty Tree so we made our way over there and waited for about 30 minutes. My DH has diabetes and of course his sugar dropped so he was eating p-butter crackers while we waited. We ended up having a yummy meal – the roast beef was great and I had ordered a Mickey head cake for my DH’s birthday, which was delicious!!
DD & DSinL took DGD back to OKW for a nap. DNephew, Alex & DNiece, Katie went to ride coasters and DH and I peacefully wandered around and rode HM, POC, Tiki Room, Hall of Presidents (all walk on)and I had my first of many Mickey Icecream bars YUM! Alex wanted to go work out at OKW so Katie came to hang with us.
We had reservations at CRT for 6:55, I wanted to get there early as I had only been able to make reservations for 3 and 4 and I was hoping we could be seated together. We arrived around 6:30 and within 5 minutes we were getting our picture taken – without Alex :dry:, and were seated. There were several empty tables which surprised me, and Alex finally arrived, on time actually, at around 6:50. I ordered the cheese appetizer, a stuffed chicken breast, and dessert trio. The chicken was especially yummy, my favorite entrée of our trip. Everyone else said their food was good but not great.
We were seated so that our table backed up to a wall where the princess came out and stopped for a moment as they were “presented”. Madalynn could turn around and stand in the seat and see them. Every princess reached out to her and spoke to her – she was in awe! Pictures of the princesses attached!!
We were escorted quickly out of MK by a CM since there was a MNSSHP going on. This is when my DH decided he could not push me around in a wheelchair all week, LOL!
DH & I went back to OKW, everyone else went to Hollywood Studios. Great Day!!
