Disney Vacation - Sunday

We went to the Magic Kingdom on our first day. We arrived around 10 and stayed until 11 that night! It was a long and fun and magical day. Watching David and Owen experience everything was wonderful. We stayed to watch the night parade and the fireworks show over Cinderella's castle. We were so tired, but very happy after a very full day. David's favorite rides were the race cars that he got to drive and the tea cups. Owen liked the Dumbo ride the best (as far as I can tell :) ) We made it to all areas of the park except for Tomorrowland.
I apologize in advance for posting so many pictures! I want to have them on the blog, though, so that we can look back and remember our special trip.
We were amazed at how efficiently everything was run and how CLEAN all of Disney was! All the parks were spotless. The "cast members" (Disney employees) to a person, were all extremely friendly and helpful. Disney does it right, that's for sure! We want to go back every year now we had so much fun!

The first fireworks show!

David met Pluto first...he was jumping up and down with excitement when he saw him.

Our second ride...Dumbo. I remember riding Dumbo when I was a little girl.

Owen loved this ride!

Meeting Pooh and Tigger!

Having a Mickey ice cream!

David was very excited to meet Donald.

Taking the boat to Tom Sawyer's Island which David really enjoyed.

The magic carpet ride...David loved anything that had to do with flying.

We got David a Lightning McQueen Disney World outfit that he was beside himself about. :)

Main Street in the evening.

The castle changed colors throughout the was beautiful.

Waiting for the parade!!!


I wasn't able to capture the fireworks, but they were spectacular!

A fantastic first day.
