So of all the parks.. Magic Kingdom is the park that my kids were most excited about. My girls love everything princess related... therefore, this year we made it to Cinderalla's Royal Table (you have to book it pretty much 180 days in advance) and even indulged our oldest by being pampered at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.
Since we did a lot of character dining, we did not stand in line this year to get autographs like we did last year. Therefore, I think we got to go on more rides.
Favorite rides we repeated this year included:
- Peter Pan's Flight (use a fast pass for this)
- It's A Small World
- Dumbo the Flying Elephant
- The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
New rides we loved included:
- Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
- The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (good one to fast pass as well)
Our oldest was tall enough to ride her first roller coaster, The Barnstormer and she even did it twice.
She also surprised us by wanting to ride Snow White's Scary Adventure over and over again! I totally thought it would be too scary for her. In fact, I went with her a couple of times because I knew they were going to get rid of this ride. There's going to be a Princess Fairytale Hall in its place. Here is a nice tribute to this classic ride.
Now a couple of times when we got fast passes, we got bonus fast passes for Mickey's PhilharMagic, which is a fun 3-D movie to watch. I loved watching my two year old reach for objects during the show because of the visual effects.
All in all, there is a ton to do at Disney so having some sort of plan helps. Aside from the rides, there are always shows and parades which my little ones just loved.
Finally... I read online about the Dole Whip Floats and so made it a point to get one to try. They were pretty good! Probably need another post just to write about the food...
