Upon entering the parking lot, you have two options, ferry or monorail to MK. The monorail was not yet running (did I mention we had another pre-park opening breakfast? :) ) So we opted for the ferry. Here was our first view of the magic :)
Upon arrival, we had plenty of time to take some good 'almost empty' shots.
Here are the kids waiting in front of our breakfast venue, The Crystal Palace. I will say this, overall, this was probably our least impressive breakfast, BUT, to be in the park pre-opening and for the kids to get to meet Winnie the Pooh and friends, it was well worth doing it once. Next time we may opt for breakfast in Cinderella's castle, though.
I just can't handle the cuteness :)
After The Crystal Palace we set off towards Ansley's number 1, Ariel:
From Ariel, we visited the ever infamous, DUMBO!
From there, on to Ansley's first roller coaster, the Barnstormer, check out her face:
We quickly graduated to the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. It's the one ride we did not ride more than once that I so wish we would have had the opportunity to!
Oh- I just love her face! Priceless! (Notice the ponchos, they are foretelling...)
Here are a few more ride or random pictures from the day - Carousel:
Because I love this place:
And this face:
And this face: (we were well medicated ;) )
And this one! Smiles galore!
Add to the effects that they choose members of the 'audience' (around 40-50 people, fairly small) to participate in the story and you have a memory... a priceless memory. And B, he got asked to play THE Beast... with Belle! Ans got asked to play Chip, the Teacup.
You are getting ready to see a theme. From this point forward, B somehow got singled out daily in some way, shape or form. Here is B scaring Belle, dancing with Belle, and bowing after they dance. This MAY have topped my magical moment list for the whole week... may.
And one with 'Chip' and Belle:
From this point, the rain started. And it rained... and rained... and rained some more. And we waited under an awning on Main Street for 30 minutes, and no sign of letting up, so three hours premature, we decided to brave the rain... to the car. (Can I also put a plug in for strollers here? Rent one. And make sure it comes with a rain-cover. It was a SAVE ALL... for the whole week!)
Here's some Photopass pictures, again, keep in mind the early breakfast and few other people in the park :)
Love, love, LOVE these!
And, despite the rain, we had to meet Tinkerbell on the way out :)
Tomorrow - tomorrow is Princesses and touring the WORLD! :)
