Trip Report A Royal Stay

Day 2 - Magic Kingdom

We got ready and I need coffee so I sent my husband to wait at the bus stop with the girls while I ran to the food court. As I arrived at the bus stop I saw him waving at a distance and a bus was waiting, so I ran and we made it on the bus. It was only a little after 8 and the time so we were ahead of schedule.

We got to MK around 8:30 and I knew it'd be a busy day:

This was 30 mins prior to park opening. I guess people don't sleep at Disney...

After taking some pictures we found a spot to watch the opening show. My husband's reaction was "that was it?" :joyfull:

We immediately made a beeline to Storybook Circus to ride Dumbo and Barnstormer. This was the first time Avery went on it and she loved it! We rode again since there wasn't a wait yet. View attachment 199431
The peace sign was her pose for the trip.

We then rode Under The Seas and went back to Storybook Circus to meet Minnie and Daisy. I had read on this forum that when they open, the characters are the ones to come out and take you back. I thought this was very neat and wanted to see it. When the doors were opened, everyone was so surprised to see Minnie, Daisy, Donald, and Goofy at the door. They actually took the hands of the first party in line and escorted them to the M&G area. So adorable!

It was then time for our first FP! I was very excited for Riley about this one. She had only rode Barnstormer before and I didn't know how she would like it. Daddy rode with her while I waited with Avery. I actually saw them go down the drop! I kept yelling her name like a crazy mom. She was so excited when she came out and wanted to ride again! What?? That means I have to ride? I asked daddy to get a rider swap just in case so I guess now I have to take her. I haven't been on roller coasters for years because the last time I went on the Dualing Dragons at Universal I got so sick and the last time I went on Space Mountain I thought I was going to die. So I said I wasn't going on roller coasters ever again. I know this isn't the same in terms of thrill levels, but I was a little nervous. My 4 year old kept telling me "Mommy, I promise you it'll be fun and it's not scary." :in pain:

I didn't look scared, right?

It was a very fun ride, actually. I would ride again next trip. Hopefully Avery will be tall enough bc I know she'd love it!

We then rode the carousel (Avery's favorite our last trip), It's a Small World, and Peter Pan before Avery passed out.
Love your girls sneakers! So cute!:)

It's hysterical how Avery always seems to have the peace sign in the pictures. Riley is definitely in her element posing.:) They looked super cute in their Anna and Elsa gowns.
Never would have known this is your first report. It is fantastic!:):)

I'm dying at how adorable your girls are in their sister dresses. And that they call each other Anna and Elsa sometimes at home??? TOO CUTE.

I don't blame Riley for being nervous about meeting the "real" Elsa and Anna! When the sisters first came to the Epcot M&G, my wife and I saw them exiting to backstage through The Puffin's Roost and we were totally starstruck! They waved at us and said, "hello," and we could barely manage a wave back.

I'm enjoying reading your report!
Thank you for reading! She was totally starstrucked when she saw the sisters! She is normally not shy at all :). So jealous you were able to see them backstage!

After our fun M&G with the characters we changed the girls out of their costumes and we headed back to WS because our FP for Frozen has opened up! I took out my phone and saw that I got an email about the Frozen ride being down and I can either return once it's back up or I can use the FP for other rides. NOOOOOOOOOOOO :bawling:. I imagined the worst and thought what am I suppose to tell Riley if the ride is down the entire day?
After straightening myself out we headed to WS since we were going to spend the next few hours in WS anyway. We stopped by Mexico and went on a different boat ride instead.
After our boat ride with Donald we wandered around Mexico for a few minutes and I checked the app and there's a wait time for Frozen!! :D
We put down the giant hats and hopped over to Arendelle.

I swear Avery was on the boat. If you look very closely you can see her little eyes ;).

As promised, we revisited the princesses, with our autograph books this time. Good thing the wait was only 15 mins.

It was close to Avery's nap time and she refused to be in the pictures. Oh well..

I wonder if she realized it was a different Anna & Elsa...

My big girl left Arendelle content and satisfied :D.

I totally forgot to include that part! She did go up to Anna and asked her where Olaf was. Anna told her Olaf was spending his day at the beach ;). I think this made the whole M&G more memorable since she still talks about it and she keeps thinking of things to ask the characters for the next trip.
We were there at the same time, when preparing my daughter for M&Gs I had her think of questions she might ask them and it really helped with the experiences. I hope to write a trip report but my husbands laptop died the last day of our trip and that is where all of our pictures are, luckily the hard drive is OK but just needs a professional to recover everything.

Thank you for sharing your trip your daughters are adorable.

I'm so glad you were able to recover your pictures. The exact same thing happened to us a few years ago so I can imagine the panic...
Looking forward to hear about your trip!
