The Magic Kingdom

So after our character breakfast, we headed over to the Magic Kingdom. I will never forget the look on Ayla's face as we entered. Her jaw just dropped open, she was so amazed by everything. As soon as we got there, the parade was just about to start so we got a good spot and watched our very first Disney parade. The kids loved it. It had all of their favorite characters and at the end of the parade the characters got off of the floats and danced in the streets. Ayla and Brennan were both out there dancing but I didn't get any pictures because I was with them :)

After the parade we HAD to go and see the princesses. Ayla and Brennan were both in awe of them because they were so beautiful. I was not sure if Brennan would go up to them or not but he was so sweet, he went up to them and would gently place his head on their shoulder. It was the sweetest thing ever. He called all of the princesses "Cinderwellwa", he is so dang cute!!!

We grabbed lunch at the park and took the kids on several rides before we went back to the room for a little rest that afternoon. Their favorite rides were Dumbo and It's a small world. Brennan LOVED It's a small world, their is so much to look at and he was literally amazed at everything. Needless to say, we rode these a couple of times!

We met our friends at Disney who are actually more like family, and Ayla loved hanging out with Ella and Makena! It was their fourth birthday while we were there, so we celebrated all week. Mama Sandy had bought them all matching shirts, they looked so cute! It was so great going with a group of people because we ALL got to ride rides. There was enough of us that we could take turns watching the kids so everyone could enjoy the rides.

To end Day one, we ate Dinner at our friends Hotel, the Contemporary and then spent the rest of the night back at the Magic Kingdom. I think we got back to our hotel around 10pm. It was a long and exhausting day, the temperature was in the high 80's I believe. Overall we had an awesome day at Magic Kingdom! For the rest of the week whenever we were at a different park, Ayla kept saying that she wanted to "go to Disney", I kept telling her we were at Disney but she didn't understand. The Magic Kingdom was Disney to her..lol. So I think it was her favorite park, of course, right??
