Monday at Magic Kingdom

Monday was our main day to be at Magic Kingdom. I had planned for us to wear our shirts we had made on this day since we would be doing a special lunch and some of the character spots along with riding lots of rides!

I had planned about four surprise deliveries for Connor during the week there, and he got one when he woke up. I had made these fun cards to give him a few things (that I bought before we went to save some cash) as if they were delivered to our hotel by the characters. He thought it was neat!

We got to MK and got busy with some rides, especially since our first Fast Pass was at Space Mountain. This kid LOVES roller coasters. We rode some other things and then had our second FP at Peter Pan before our lunch reservation at Be Our Guest. I was thrilled we were able to get a spot, and we all enjoyed some yummy food and the grey stuff!

We spent the afternoon riding as much as we could, including the Seven Dwarves Mine Train with our last Fast Pass. We also visited several different character spots, tried the brew at Gaston's, and took quite a few pictures for the Memory Maker. I am SO glad we bought it. Since the grandparents were going, we split the price 3 ways to make it more affordable. We love that we have all these really great photos together from around the parks, with characters, and on rides.

After using our last Fast Pass, we went over to Hollywood Studios for dinner at the Italian restaurant before heading back over to the Magic Kingdom. After we rode a few things, everyone except me, Nana, and Connor decided to go back to the hotel. The three of us decided to close down the park!

We were able to ride some of the Fantasyland stuff that others weren't as interested in doing (Small World, tea cups, etc.) as well as do the Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain several times since Connor loved them so much! I also got to take him on Dumbo, which was special to me since it was one of my favorites when I was little.

Once the park closed, we decided to get some ice cream and hang out for a bit in the hopes of being able to see the goodnight kiss on the castle. We got this to share, but I'm pretty sure it was gone within three minutes. Nana and I only got a couple of bites.

We did get to see the kiss goodnight, and then we headed back to the hotel to crash so we could have more fun again tomorrow!
