WDW Vacation ~ Day 3

Our first day in the parks, we went to Magic Kingdom.  We always like to start out our trip going there.  We were able to get our pictures in front of the castle and watch the opening show.  Everyone was so excited, but Ari was shaking so hard and had tears in her eyes with excitement.  It was the cutest thing!

We rode the People Mover, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, The Barnstormer, Dumbo, Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, Mad Tea Party, Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Mickey's PhilharMagic, Pirates of the Caribbean, Prince Charming Carousel, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.  We also got pictures with Chip n Dale, Elena, and Cinderella. Everything wasn't in that order because we take a break in the middle of the day to make sure everyone is in the optimal mood!

Lilah's biggest request for the trip was to meet Elena.  I ran her and Macie over there really quickly at the end of the night since it was supposed to be a 10 minute wait.  It was a little longer than that, but Lilah was so excited.  I was so upset when I checked my phone later and realized that the photos weren't there from the Memory Maker.  This was the one thing she wanted to do the most!  Thankfully, you get to see the photos immediately because two years ago you had to wait until after the trip and I was able to get her over there again later in the week.

Gavin's request was to do all of the "bad to the bone stuff" so he was thrilled with his first bigger roller coaster, Mine Train.  Lilah liked it too, but Macie did not and decided not to ride anymore roller coasters the rest of the week.  This wasn't a problem since Brian doesn't ride them and Andre and Ari were often too small to ride.  Macie was a GREAT helper with Ari all week and she loved every minute of it.

I was so proud of my score of 52, 300, but Brian got 52, 600!  And Charles blew us all out of the water with a score of 132,000!

I love Gavin's face and that Lilah's arm is up in this picture.  Poor Macie didn't enjoy it at all!
