Disney Magic Kingdom

Princesses, princesses everywhere! We planned the trip with only a few days notice so we obviously missed out on the breakfast with the princesses, but we still got our fill of them. Besides the fact that you could swing a cat without hitting a little girl dressed like her favorite Disney princess, there were enough shows, parades and meeting the characters to have my three year old get her fill of princesses.

The highlight for her then was the Crowning of Cinderella presentation at the castle. She liked it so much she made us watch it twice. She also liked the other "classic" rides, such as Dumbo and the Magic Carpet ride. Not surprisingly they are nearly identical rides. Be careful on the Magic Carpet ride, the camels "spit".

She didn't like the Jungle boat ride, the animal noises were a little scary for her. She also refused to go on several rides such as the It's a Small World ride, I never figured out why.

Second to the Cinderalla thing, we all loved the evening fireworks show. That's one thing even the 1 year old enjoyed, or at least paid some attention to.
