We arrived right before park opening around 7:45 AM, because it was another day with EMH. Ashley and I did the Elsa & Anna 5k first. Their lines get long & FP are pretty much impossible to get, so people speed walk to their attraction first thing. Hence, the nickname- Elsa & Anna 5k. Buddy was not interested in seeing any princesses, so they went to do boy stuff & laughed at us speed walking. We were some determined mommas.
The kids got to meet Alice!
We did the whole Fantasyland Circuit next! The girls absolutely loved the Barnstormer.
We ate lunch at Peco's Bill & then used our FP to meet Ariel. Peco's Bill is a great restaurant if you aren't in the mood for burgers or something fried.
Our group was a little obsessed with Ariel. Ashley was really obsessed with Ariel. Move over kids, mama wants her pic with Ariel!
After Ariel, it was around noon and the kids were exhausted, so they passed out!
After naps, we FP Peter Pan's Flight. The kids LOVED it:) Annie June said in her sleep that night, "We saved Wendy." Bless.
Here's a little secret. Right before they do the castle show, they close down the castle walkway & you can twirl in front of the castle with an unobstructed view.
It was around 3PM and we were feeling energized from coffee and naps, so we decided to go to Hollywood Studios & check it out. Transportation can be kind of tricky, but there's a bus that goes directly from Magic Kingdom to Hollywood Studios. I'm glad we went, because it ended up raining on our Hollywood Studios day!
We saw the Disney Junior characters & Annie June was in heaven when she saw Sofia.
Disney Junior Live on Stage is such a fun show for small children! It's a series of short skits that include Doc Mcstuffins, Sofia the First, and Jake & the Neverland Pirates. It's a glorified puppet show with bubbles, snow, and gold doubloons falling from the ceiling. All the kids loved it.
Since sister was on her best behavior, I bought her a pair of Minnie ears. Her very first pair of ears:)
We had a "totally awesome" day!
We loved having matching shirts. We got so many compliments on them & when we got separated from each other, all we had to do was look for a big pink bow! We bought them from an Etsy shop called DollysBow. PAY ATTENTION TO ETSY SHIPPING TIMES. All the shirts I ordered from Etsy took around 4 weeks to come in!
As a prize for being good throughout the day, I packed "gold doubloons" It was a bag of gold coins that I got for a dollar at Target. The girls weren't too impressed and would rather have suckers, but Buddy would do anything for one. He would count his gold doubloons at the end of every day and was so proud of them. Bribery works folks, don't go to Disney without it.
Also, I have to give a HUGE shout out to my friend Becca who let us borrow these precious Disney shirts that she handmade. I ordered the tutu from Zulily to match the shirt we borrowed.
Our last day- Hollywood Studios coming up next!
