Magic Kingdom

After the boys enjoyed the pool for a few days while I worked, I got a day off to relax with them. We didn't really relax though, we were on the first tram to Magic Kingdom.




We weren't sure what to expect with Magic Kingdom, it was suppose to be lighter traffic than usual but then again, it's the Magic Kingdom. I ditched my 31 sling and decided to take one of the boys' backpacks--much easier to manage & it allowed me to take my nice camera too.

I used touringplans.com again and our day was mapped out. We started with the Seven Dwarfs Train which was smart because it seemed to always have the longest lines but thankfully had some fun toys to play along the way.





I figured that since Logan was more than tall enough for the ride that it was a little roller-coaster but once we boarded we quickly figured out it was a little more.


Needless to say, I was the only one that really enjoyed it. Both boys weren't so thrilled and insisted on never going on it again and Justin was a little queasy--he doesn't do well with roller-coasters. I had to promise that I wouldn't take them on anything else like that again just to get them to go on our next ride. Thankfully it was pretty slow moving but still rotated and Justin was a little green. He took a break during Tales with Belle which was a total highlight for me and the kids as the boys were casted in recreating Beauty and the Beast. Kaden got the lead as the Beast and Logan got to be a picture frame but in the end, he stole the show.






The lighting wasn't all that great so the video is a little blurry but Kaden got to dance with Belle.


And then they introduced the cast, one by one. And when Logan came up to meet Belle, he stole her heart.




And I wasn't fast enough to actually catch the kiss Belle placed on Logan's cheek but we got the evidence. I couldn't believe how red Logan got in the face when his dad asked him about the kiss. He came up to me later in the day and whispered to me how much he loved Belled but that I couldn't tell anyone.


We did It's a Small World and as soon as we got into line, I was taken back to when I was 10 and with my parents. That song. Enough said. Although I don't remember everything about that ride, I can't imagine the worlds were as beautifully done as they are  now.




After leaving It's a Small World we headed right over to the carousel, the line was as short as it had been all day and even though it was relatively short, we made the most of our time waiting.










And as we were on the carousel, the boys saw the Sword in the Stone and both felt they could pull it out of the stone just like Arthur did. 





No such luck. Maybe next time. We were all starving and needed a little refueling so we headed to grab something to eat and take in the lunchtime parade with a few friends. 





We got our second wind and off we went to another area of the park. Both boys wanted to drive the race cars and although Justin wasn't all that excited, I think he got the better end of the deal--Logan SUCKED at keeping the car on the road. 



We rode Dumbo the Flying Elephant, played in the fountains, jumped on the Tea Cups and met one more princess before heading down to the big show.












And then all their character dreams came true, one right after another. 















It was one VERY MAGICAL DAY and one we won't be forgetting anytime soon.
