This past weekend My family, sister and nephew headed to Disney for the Disney Princess Half Marathon. I am planning to tell you all (in detail) about the race. Before I do, I thought I would share our fun day. We couldn't go to Disney without going to Magic Kingdom. The last time we went was when Ella was 2 months old.......she is now 7. She was probably the most excited!
We were planning to go Friday but my sister had a stomach bug so we postponed it by a day. We quickly learned Saturday was the day everyone else planned to go to Magic Kingdom as well. There were over 26,000 people participating in the races that weekend so it was very crowded!
There was a wait for the shuttle!
We decided to take the Ferryboat over there and ride the monorail back.
After standing in line to get our passes activated, we stepped inside to the most magical place on earth! Every time I go to Disney, I feel like a kid again. I get so excited to be there!
We headed towards Adventure land to begin our day.
(I promise Ella was happy to be there.......she was not happy with me wanting so many pictures)
Fantasyland is the newest part of Disney.
It is probably where
we some of us spent most of our time.
After lunch and the Goofy roller coaster, we decided to split ways for a while. Ella really wanted to go to Under the Sea and Enchanted Tales with Belle. The older ones wanted to move on to bigger and
better more mature things. My sister took them and Carmel, Ella and I enjoyed the newest scenery.
It was a 75 minute wait for Ariel's ride.
Next up was Belle!
Right around the corner was It's a Small World.
This was also where we met up with the rest of our crew!
We had just enough time left to go to Cinderella's castle, join in a street party and eat before the Disney's Electrical Parade.
Since we were all going to have to get up at 3 am for the race, we decided it would be best to attend the 7:00 electrical parade.
We did not get to do all the things we wanted due to the crowd. That's okay though........ the kids and I will be going back this summer! We can hit all the things we missed then.
