Magic Kingdom, Part1

The morning we headed to Magic Kingdom I woke up not feeling well. We already had reservations for lunch at the Crystal Palace and fast passes all lined up for the day, so, sick or not, we were going!

We took the ferry over to the front gates and once we got in, we saw that Tinker Bell had a very short wait, and we hopped in line. She is a character we’ve never seen before so it was cool to get her autograph. She told Dakota that next time she did her hair she’d make two “tinker buns” like hers!

We headed straight for Fantasyland and jumped in line to ride “it’s a small world”. The line was non existent at about a 5 minute wait especially compared to Peter Pans Flight that was more than an hour! Dakota loved the “gi-gi’s” (babies)!

Next up was The Magic Carpets of Aladdin. Tony and I took Dakota and Harper on this one while Zoe and Landon waited for us.

And then we hopped in line to see Princess Jasmine and Aladdin. It never ceased to amaze me how willingly Dakota and Harper went with any old prince and princess that approached them! I mean they just held out their hands and the went. It was a little unnerving really.

The moment I caught below was one I’ll never forget. Dakota was just sitting on Aladdin's leg while he signed her book and talked to her and once he was done signing he looked up at her and she was giving him this look of “love” for lack of a better word. It appeared that she wanted to kiss him and I guess Aladdin thought the same thing because he said “Do you want to kiss me?” and she kind of nodded that she did. So, he turned his cheek and she gave him the smallest peck and she was very happy with herself. It was terribly sweet.

And then she kissed Jasmine too.

Then we were off to meet Pooh and friends for lunch.

Having lunch at the Crystal Palace was great. We really enjoyed the food, characters and especially the air conditioning! I’d highly recommend it!

As we went back outside after lunch we caught part of a parade.
