Vacation 2012: Magical memories.

Day 8, part 1: Magic Kingdom

Once again, we used RideMax to make the most of our day, which began bright and early. We were through the turnstiles before the big park opening ceremony.

YES! We're HERE!

And so is the train!

And so is MICKEY!!!


Our first view of (this) Main Street

First stop: Fantasyland

I love me some Pooh.

Buzz Lightyear space cadets

Make that maniacal space cadets

With Chip and Dale

"And then we went WAAAAAY up high!"

View from the Astro Orbiter

Family portrait

The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room

Talking totems

We love the classics

Playing around in the cemetery

Katie gets into the mood

Not missing our stroller days

Parade time!

For lunch we booked reservations at the Crystal Palace. Even though our kids aren't so little, I really wanted us to have one character meal!

My mean look

Katie said we should make funny faces. Um, Katie? WE?!

Pretty cool to see these "characters" from home there!

Eeyore knows another melancholy soul when he sees one.

The view from inside the restaurant

Another parade

Always good to see M&M


We were glad to finally get to meet the mouse, the legend:

After a long day at the Magic Kingdom, we went back to our resort, where Brett and the kids tried out the arcade:

Then the rains hit!

We were pretty glad to be nice and cozy in our room.

But that wasn't the end of this magical day...
