Disney World - Day 1 - Magic Kingdom

Our Disney World trip was a success!  We had a wonderful time and made many great memories.  I just wish I had done a better job photographing things for Bryce so he can look back at them one day.  It was a bit difficult to take pictures of everything with two kids and all the gear we had. 

Once we got to Magic Kingdom, we rode the ferry boat into the park.  We headed straight to Fantasyland where we rode the carousel, tea cups, Dumbo, and It's a Small World.  While we were in that area, we ventured over to Tomorrowland and did the race cars.

Jason's aunt Vickie gave Bryce this blue muscle t-shirt and he kept insisting he had to wear it to Disney World to ride the race cars.  I had no idea they had race cars, but he knew what he was talking about!

The Dumbo ride was a must!  I went to Disney World for the first time in kindergarten and one of my few memories is riding Dumbo with my grandfather.

The morning started off sunny and nice but the clouds and rain quickly rolled in.  It didn't dampen our fun too much!  You can see how wet we were by the time we posed for this picture in front of Cinderella's Castle.

Our main goal before leaving Magic Kingdom was to see Mickey Mouse.  We have been preparing Bryce for this moment for months, but it didn't help.  He was just as terrified of Mickey as we thought he would be. 

Emmy didn't mind the characters and Minnie Mouse just adored her and she loved her outfit!

We ended up leaving the park earlier than we had planned since the rain and storms never really let up.  We took the monorail back to the parking lot which was fun for Bryce because we have shown him lots of pictures of it and talked about it for months.  Luckily, we were able to go back to Magic Kingdom later in the week.  I'll save that for another post.
