Magic Kingdom...Day 1

Driving through the gate at the entrance to the Disney property was exciting.  The girls saw huge, Donald Duck, Minnie, and of course...Mickey!  However, after several minutes of driving and not even getting to the parking area, Bix announced, "Disney isn't what I thought it was going to be...it's just trees and cars."
Her attitude changed dramatically by the time we got to the front gate, walked in and looked down Main Street towards Cinderella's Castle.

Small World was an early attraction.  So fun, and who cares if the song gets stuck in your head all day?!

Mickey's Philhar-Magic was a 3-D and all 5 senses experience.  A little loud for Fi and a little too 3-D for Bix.  Overall, it was pretty darn cool.

Just across from the philhar-magic is Prince Charming's Carousel.

Then we met our first character!  We could barely get Fi to let go.  

The girls got the White Rabbit's autograph, and then we were on to the Teacups.

Once the girls found out they could actually drive the cars...there was no keeping them off the Speedway in Tomorrowland.  Bix was all business.

Even though Fi couldn't see over the steering wheel...she drove with all her might. (Slinging her mom and herself all over the track.)

We needed a break, so of course we hopped on the People Mover.

Then it was back over to Fantasyland to ride Winnie-the-Pooh and Peter Pan (gotta love FastPass!) This was the closest we got to riding on Dumbo.  That line is always way too long.

This was really the "grumpiest" either girl got.  They were trying to out "grump" each other.

Second ride on the People Mover. This time, when we went through Space Mountain the lights were off.  Bix did not care for that.

Meeting Buzz made up for any lingering trauma.

We really like the People Mover.

We didn't make it to Dumbo, but Aladdin's Magic Carpet Ride is essentially the same thing.  Plus, it has the added bonus of "spitting" camels!

Main Street Electrical Parade and Fireworks topped off a truly magical day.

Sweet dreams...of Disney.
