Day 2 – Magic Kingdom

mk1Our first full day at the Magic Kingdom began with a breakfast feast as guests of Cinderella’s Royal Table in Cinderella’s Castle.  The kids got to meet Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Jasmine, and Belle.  Mara got a magic wand to take away, and Cameron got a knight’s sword – which he proudly showed to anyone who asked throughout the rest of the morning.  With full tummies and armed with sunscreen and hats (1st really sunny day here), we ventured into Fantasyland.  We rode “Dumbo the Flying Elephant”, “Peter Pan’s Flight”, “It’s a Small World”, “Cinderella’s Golden Carousel”, and “Winnie the Pooh’s Adventures”.  We also watched a very cool 3-D film called “Mickey’s PhilharMagic”.  Due to tummies recently filled with ice cream and cherry slushies, we opted out of the “Mad Tea Party” (swirling tea cups) and headed for the “Tomorrowland Indy Speedway”.  Here, Cameron got to steer the racecar while Diana pushed the gas pedal down – and if this is a sign of what may be coming in 12 years, teaching him to drive will be no small task!  But it was a lot of fun and no one got hurt:):)  Completely spent, and all sweaty too, we decided to head back to the hotel for a rest and a swim.  The thunderstorm began as we boarded the boat for our hotel – good timing!  Now, Jamie, Mara and Cameron are all sleeping soundly in the lovely air-conditioning.  The thunder and lightning have stopped and we will head back to the Magic Kingdom for dinner and some more fun, and hopefully the Spectromagic Parade too:)
