Bryans Do Disney, Day 7: Magic Kingdom

I was awoken abruptly this morning by Harper poking me in the nose.  We're never moving her out of a crib at home.

We headed back to Magic Kingdom this morning with Anna and Elsa.  

The girls insisted on being called "Anna" and "Elsa" instead of their real names for a few hours.  They made up a song whose only lyrics were "we live together," which they sang for most of the morning.  They harmonize pretty well.

For some reason, I thought it would be a good idea to get the girls balloons.  They loved them, but wouldn't hold them close enough, so they kept hitting Stephen and me in the face.  Harper popped hers by lunchtime.  

We rode It's a Small World first.

We found Rapunzel's tower and the village with her signature sun and lanterns.

We got in line for Aladdin's Magic Carpet ride, and it just started to sprinkle.  It was pouring by the time we actually got on the ride twenty minutes later.  We froze during the ride!  The girls thought it was hilarious, and then Harper threw a fit because she was cold.  The girls changed out of their princess dresses when we got to the restaurant.

We ate lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern, a colonial America themed restaurant.  Emory had mac and cheese, Stephen had fish and chips, and I had pot roast.  We got toffee cake for dessert.  It was all really good.  Harper slept through the whole meal.

The park is so beautifully landscaped.

Next, we rode Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin.  You can spin the space car around and shoot at targets.  We all loved it.

We rode the peoplemover train that goes all over Tomorrowland. 

The girls met Buzz Lightyear and got his autograph.

Stephen rode Space Mountain

while the girls met Merida and got her autograph.  Emory and Harper didn't say much to Merida, and in her Scottish accent, Merida said Ursula must have stolen their voices.  Too cute.

It started to rain again while we waited in line to meet Merida, so the girls hid under a poncho tent.

We had a little popcorn snack.

Then we took a Jungle Cruise.

We ate dinner at Casey's Corner, a baseball park themed restaurant.  The girls put cotton candy beards on and pretended to be pirates.

Then we headed to sit in front of Cinderella's castle for the Wishes nighttime spectacular fireworks show.  We all loved it.

We finished off the evening by meeting Cinderella and Rapunzel!  I can't get over how precious the characters are.  They stay in character so well.  

Before our trip I thought it was silly to take young kids to Disneyworld, but there's more than plenty for the girls to do. And they are so excited about everything!

She wanted to take a bath.

She wanted to be held.

She got wet from the rain.

Tomorrow is Hollywood Studios day!
