Our friends Lydia and Aaron are in town, so we had friends to go with. It made it so much fun to go as a foursome. Lydia and Aaron are more like family to us than friends, and we always have a blast when we’re together.
Disney was looking fabulous with all the fall decor.
We got some great pictures in front of the castle… and Aaron photo-bombed with cotton candy.
Lydia and I checked out some of the mouse ears available. She ended up buying the ones I am wearing… glittery!
(Did you notice her first timer button!?)
I loved seeing the Disney themed snacks in the park. It really is a place like nowhere else.
We did a ton of things at The Magic Kingdom. We rode Splash Mountain, Stitch’s Great Escape, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Mad Tea Party (teacups!), and of course Cinderella’s Golden Carousel. I think there were a few other “kiddie” rides in there too. My favorite? Space Mountain. Can you tell?
(Aaron is really good at spotting the cameras.)
(And yeah, not paying $15 for that picture.)
I loved seeing Cinderella’s castle as the sun went down.
And it lit up later!
We stayed to watch the fireworks at 9pm too, which were phenomenal. 12 minutes that felt like the Fourth of July!
Some of the aforementioned rides were experienced post-fireworks, since it was Extra Magic Hours. Eventually we were worn down and it was time to head out. On the way out we saw this awesome water drawing on the pavement. They’re so talented… and there are Mickey’s everywhere!
I am still exhausted from all the walking… it was a blast! I can’t wait to go back and see what it looks like at Christmas with my family when they’re here!
