Walt Disney World 2014 (Part 1)

We took MC on her first trip to Disney World last week! Thanks to BD's co-worker who has access to a last-minute deals site through her time share ownership, we took advantage of an amazing deal on a 1 bedroom condo on Disney property. We booked the trip only 10 days before we left, which didn't leave much time for planning anything, but we had a fantastic time on our impromptu vacation! 

BD and I haven't been to WDW since our honeymoon in '03, so we were excited about going back and introducing MC to all the fun! MC had a great time and was such a trooper! She did great with the traveling (about 10 hours each way) and slept well in the hotel. She loved all of the rides at the parks. Magic Kingdom has lots of rides that don't have height restrictions, so she was able to get on a bunch of different rides.

One of her favorites was Prince Charming's Carousel, right outside Cinderella's castle. We rode the carousel multiple times each day that we were at Magic Kingdom.

The park was all decorated for Halloween! They were also doing Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party on some nights, but we didn't even try to get tickets for that since it started after MC's bedtime.

We took her to meet Mickey Mouse at Town Hall Theater. She wasn't too sure about him, but she did let him touch her hand.

We also met Minnie Mouse outside one morning. We just happened to be walking by right as Minnie and Pluto came out to do a meet-and-greet, so we jumped in line.

She wasn't too sure about Minnie either, so after that, we just checked out the other characters from a distance and didn't try to get any pictures with them.

We rode the train all around Magic Kingdom. It was so fun to see WDW through the eyes of a child. Before this trip I didn't even remember that there was a train in Magic Kingdom, but as soon as we walked in the park and heard it whistle, MC wanted to ride the train!

Her other favorite ride was Dumbo the Flying Elephant. We also rode him multiple times each day at Magic Kingdom.

And, of course, she had several chocolate covered ice cream Mickeys! No trip to WDW would be complete without that!!
