I had dreamed of our first day at Magic Kingdom so much.. I knew I would cry when we walked up to the castle and I did. It was so sweet and Disney World just plain feels magical. We had planned to only stay in the park until nap time, and that worked perfectly.
A side note, we brought our own umbrella stroller but rented for the parks from Kingdom Strollers so I could insure it and not have to worry about it being stolen. Maybe that's silly but I loved the peace of mind. :)
We got to the park before our 8:30 breakfast reservation and took a bunch of photos and just soaked in the atmosphere.. it was a blast!
Then we wandered over to Crystal Palace.. THE BEST EVER. It was Winnie the Pooh character dining which was sweet and felt so indulgent and Disney. The food was amazing too. The gravy will remain in my heart forever.
Beau's favorite by far was Eeyore! He loved him. (Him, right? Haha!) But I thought this last photo was funny because he cried for like two seconds and clearly it surprised me and Eeyore didn't skip a beat with responding. I love it!
The whole place was adorable.
Beau's first ride was the teacups. From a friend's recommendation, we chose a "family ride" which is tradition for us to ride first every time we get to Disney. The teacups are that for us now!
Beau LOVED it and it was so fun!
Beau loving it and Mama is like "what are we doing?!"
Then we started trucking our way around and loved so many things!
This photo resulted when Beau woke up right after sleeping through Peter Pan, which he would have LOVED because that style of ride literally bewitched him. He was sweaty, tired, and a little loopy :) So sweet!
We had lunch at Be Our Guest and it was really sweet for me because Beauty and the Beast was my favorite movie as a little girl!
A few times Ben and I snuck off for "big kid" rides while his parents kept Beau. I feel like this photo should be a Disney advertisement!
Early afternoon we headed to the room, all took naps, swam, and then ate dinner at our hotel restaurant, which was delicious! Some of the best calamari ever! Then Ben and I headed back out to enjoy the evening and fireworks. We actually saw them the night before from our table at Ohana and I enjoyed watching them from the hotel much more! Crowds like that aren't our jam. We should have ridden rides during it. :)
We were exhausted after a long day but already excited and ready for the next at Animal Kingdom and Epcot. I don't know if it was because it felt so low pressure, but it was one of my favorite days! More on that soon! XO
