You're only one day in and your TR is already getting me so excited for our trip! We are going to DTD on our first day too, so I'm just reading along and picturing us doing what you did and ahhh! This is a nice change from the anxiety I've been feeling about all this FP & FP+ mess. I hope you get in a few more updates before we leave, I'm loving it so far!

I've never been to Raglan Road, but I seriously love that your fries are wrapped in that paper stuff. And I can only imagine how good the fish must be there.

Yup, you need that extra energy from a meal to tackle World of Disney, let alone on a Saturday night. I just want everything in there! Sadly, my bank account does not.
The legos are irresistable! Yes, the fish was so tasty! Bank accounts and World of Disney are mortal enemies!

I love all the decorations at World of Disney..it just shows how much effort Disney puts into EVERY single thing they do! I am pretty sure all the legos will still be there, they've been there since my January trip so I don't think they're going away anytime soon!

I agree that everyone is practically required to take pictures of the Lego statues
Thanks! I am so glad we decided to try it out!

JetBlue impressed me too, from now on, if I can help it all, that is my airline of choice!

Day 2 - Magic Kingdom

Day 2 - Magic Kingdom

We woke up bright and early for our first full day in Disney! We all got ready and headed to the Food Court for a light breakfast. We headed to the bus stop and waited a few minutes for the bus to MAGIC KINGDOM! Honestly I don't remember how long we waited for buses, but it was never usually too long, maybe 10 or 15 minutes at most. The recurring thing though was whichever park bus we would be waiting for, buses for EVERY other park would arrive before ours did. This seemed to happen every day which I guess is prety funny!


001 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We arrived at MK and were through the turnstiles by around 8:20..super early today! We admired the train station and took some photos while we waited.


012 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

Finally at 8:45 the Welcome Show began!


018 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


025 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


026 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


030 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

Now maybe it was because it was our first day and we were at MK, or maybe it was because it was my first time seeing the show, but I got a littttle emotional not gonna lie! I think I was just overwhelmed with so many happy feelings! Luckily I had my sunglasses on, so I pulled myself together without anyone knowing I enjoyed the Welcome Show! It's short but very cute! Once the show was over we headed in and took in all the magic on Main Street! We were all very giddy and excited! We stopped for a few photos and took it slowly as we headed to Tomorrowland.

This is one of my favorite spots to stop and take a picture of the castle!


034 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

Once we got to TL our very first ride of the trip was...Space Mountain! There was no wait and we walked right on.


035 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

*I am still waiting to order my PhotoPass CD. I had a bunch of missing pictures and they are slowly being added to my account..luckily so far they have found every single one though! When it arrives I'll make sure I do a post with some pics I wasn't able to include in the TR yet such as ride photos and magic shots!*

From there we headed to new Fantasyland to meet Ariel in her Grotto! The wait was about 10 minutes. Ariel was cute, though I cannot remember what we talked about!


1539 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We were going to ride Under The Sea but the wait was 20 minutes so we decided to Fastpass it. After grabbing FP I noticed The Tremaines were out with practically no line! I didn't plan on meeting them as I met them last trip, but you can't pass it up when there's no line! We waited about 5 minutes before meeting the hilarious trio!


045 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

This is when the character pixie dust really kicks in! We then headed over to the Fairy Godmother's area. I planned on just waiting there for her next greet but it turns out she was still out meeting for the greet prior! We made it in line just in time before it closed! She was very nice but the interaction was pretty short.


050 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We did so well on time that we were able to head right over to Peter & Wendy to wait for their next greet! We waited about 15 minutes before it was our turn. They were PHENOMENAL. Seriously one of the best greets of the trip! They asked how old I was turning and I told them I didn't want to say because it's OLD. They told me they know a trick to make you younger, add the 2 digits of your age together! So I told them I was 8 and they seemed satisfied with that! Peter also wasn't happy that my pen was blue, not green! They were very playful and fun.


060 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

At this point I think we grabbed FP for Winnie the Pooh before heading over to Under the Sea. I love this ride, I'm such a fan of The Little Mermaid After that we headed back and rode It's A Small World with no wait and Winnie the Pooh with our FP. At some point I also caught my first glimpse of the Tangled bathroom area. Ah i loved it, it is so well themed!

Awwwww that's so sweet that you got emotional during the morning show. Also, I totally get it. It's especially great since it's the only one left anywhere. So much more special.

Oh you cannot pass up meeting the step sisters. They are more fun than almost anything. Love them.

Ooooh, I LOVE the idea of simply adding the digits together for age. From now on, that is the new rule.

What a wonderful MK morning!

I just love the MK opening show, especially on your first day at Disney, so magical!

I love all the meet and greets! The Tremines and Peter Pan are on my must meet list for December!

I am SO excited to see the Tangled bathrooms, weird but true! Tangled is one of my fav Disney movies I can't wait to see the area!

Love your meet and greet interactions! Reading about those kinds of fun interactions make me want to do more character meets. I really haven't met any characters since I was a little kid, and I don't remember what they were like then. The Tremaines sound especially fun!

I will probably tear up during the morning show at MK too, and during Wishes. If only I could wear sunglasses at night too!

I can't wait to see the Tangled rest area! I wish they had made more of a Tangled section than a rest area, but I will take what I can get!

Both those sets of characters are some of the best I've met, I really hope you do get to meet them!!

And don't worry, I was excited too! I love Tangled and I'm so happy it's represented!

I'm such a fan of character meets! You definitely should try to squeeze some in on your trip HAHA night time shows are tricky for us emotional people! You will love the Tangled area, the tower is so beautiful!

Day 2 - Magic Kingdom Continued

We then headed to the front of the castle to see Dream Along With Mickey! Dad sat on one of the hub benches while Mom and I watched in front of the stage. It was HOT. We were standing right in the sun and were just dripping in sweat. But the show was wonderful and turned out to be a family favorite! Throughout the trip my dad kept saying how much he LOVED that show, which I found so cute! We never got to watch the show in full again, but every time we were in the hub area throughout our trip we always seemed to stumble upon it! We also always seemed to catch it at the exact part where Peter comes out...and THAT is where the TR titles comes from We couldn't stop quoting that line (and still find ourselves saying it too )!

Apparently I took a lot of DAWM photos! haha And of course we couldn't be at the hub without taking the obligatory Partners statue pic!


162 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

After the show we headed over to Be Our Guest to try and check-in a few minutes early for our FP+ reservation. It took a few minutes for the CM to find us, but once she did we were able to walk right in! It's a little chaotic when trying to order lunch. It feels rushed and you kind of need an idea on what you want to order once you get up there. Dad & I ordered the roast beef, Mom got the turkey and of course I had to get a Grey Stuff cupcake as well!

I wanted to sit in the West Wing so we went to find a table in there. It was crowded but luckily there was a table available for us to sit at! This room is so awesome. I loved the rose, the thunder, and the way the beast's picture transforms! As for the food, we all thought it was delicious! And the cupcake was YUM, the mousse is so delicious!

After we finished eating, we checked out the other rooms before heading out. Eating lunch here made me VERY excited for our upcoming dinner reservation in a few days!

nice updates! I think what (at least in part) makes the opening show emotional is seeing so many characters together - it's like character/Disney thoughts & feelings overload. Kinda the same thing as the showboat part near the end of Fantasmic!

I agree - it was sooooo hot the week you (and I) were there. This was the first trip we saw the Dream Along with Mickey Show and we soooo loved it (ok, last "sooooo" I use, promise) - we also thought it seemed like it was always on as well - that that there is anything wrong with that

I love all the dream along with Mickey pictures! We've never seen the whole thing, just whatever we've seen while we pass by. I don't know why we've never stopped but it's so on the list this time!

I can't wait for our BOG dinner! I didn't know you could get a grey stuff cupcake! The grey stuff might be the thing I'm most excited about trying!
