Up around 8am. Got to eat breakfast and get going. We are going to the Magic Kingdom today! How cool is that? Hope we can see and do a lot of things. I know that I have been there before, but it always feels like the first time. Maybe it is because there are so many years in between the times that I have gone.
I would have to say that one of the best parts of the day is riding the monorail to the entrance of the Magic Kingdom and seeing the castle in the distance. To know that that is where we are going. Also, Donny talks about the monorail still. He loved it...and yes, we bought our own monorail. How can you go to Disney and not buy a monorail?
It was the perfect day outside...about 82*. We were with the crowd though. There were thousands of people there. We did manage to get Donny on a couple of the rides, but not too many. He went in the race cars with Daddy and he went on the little roller coaster with me. He loved both of them. (even though he will tell you that the roller coaster was way too fast for him...I think that he still loved it!) We didn't stand in any of the lines to see the characters as they were way too long. Donny wouldn't have been able to wait over an hour to see Mickey...we would have loved it, but definantly next time. We were really close to seeing Donald, but Donny tripped and he scrapped his knee...so he was done with that.
At 3pm we did watch the parade. Donny fell asleep which was a good thing as we knew that he was getting tired. The parade was really neat...and it was of course different then the two previous ones that I have seen.
After the parade we left. We decided to take the boat back to the parking lot. That was really neat. I had never done that, it was a heck of a lot easier to deal with too. We got to our vehicle and headed back to the hotel. Donny slept most of the way back...woke up once we got to the hotel.
We relaxed for a little bit and then decided to go to DownTown Disney. Before we went to DTD, we went swimming. It was kinda nice having the pool right outside of our room. It was very conveinient. The water was really nice also, we did have a little bit of a breeze, so the air was chilly..but as long as you stayind in the water it wasn't that bad. Also this was the first time that Donny got to try out his new boat. This boat is a toddler boat and man can he make that thing move! We left to go to DTD around 6pm. We had to eat dinner at the House of Blues. That is a must anytime we are near there. And I always get the cajun meatloaf. Still like it after all these years. We walked around for a bit and saw a lot of neat things. By 10pm we were headed back to the hotel to go to bed. It has been a long, fun day....and we loved every single minute of it!
