On Tuesday of our vacation, we knew it would start to get busier, so we booked smartly to help us avoid the crowds and do everything we wanted.
First, we went to crystal palace for breakfast. Our reservations were at 8:50am, which was just before the magic kingdom opened. So, lucky us got to get in the park with almost no one there! The photopass photographers were already out, so we some fabulous shots of the two of us and the opportunity to take our own shots with very few people in them.
There is always someone there nice enough to take your picture!
It was then time for our Segway tour at fort wilderness! We did the Epcot tour last time, and really enjoyed it. We had enough time to wander around and check out the decorations there before going on a great tour!
Not us! Photo of Paul is not on the ipad.
After our tour, we went to the Grand Floridian to check out their decorations and massive gingerbread house. The velvet ropes are about four feet off the ground.
Back to the magic kingdom, where the new fantasyland was OPEN! We loved going under the sea and checking out Belle's village.
And, the camera was working at splash mountain today!
To cap off a great evening, we bought tickets for the fireworks party. We had the best view, best deserts, hot chocolate, and no worrying about where to be.
We then watched our favorite parade - the electric parade. I cannot hear that music without smiling. We were (quite literally) dancing on Main Street. Yes, Paul was dancing. It's his favorite parade, too. Tinker bell leads the parade, and I shouted up to her that it was Paul's birthday, and she shouted back birthday greetings. Since the late parade is much less crowded, Cinderella and Snow White noticed Paul's button and started flirting with him. I'm going to have to keep my eyes on those girls.
Oh, almost forgot. TEACUPS!
