Kindermoon-Magic Kingdom Day!!

Day 2 started out bright and early!! We were both excited for a full day at Magic Kingdom. The park officially opens at 9am but since they moved the morning show in front of the castle, they now allow you to enter the park and explore Main St starting around 8am. Both of our shirts came from All Things Cute Designs. I love her shirts so much!! They are the best quality and she is just the sweetest!!

Main Street was pretty empty so it made for great pictures!! I definitely recommend getting to the park around 8am for not only great pictures but you can grab a quick bite to eat too!

We enjoyed some time on the hub grass while waiting for the morning show to start. Matching red Converse are a MUST at Disney!!

We went right to the Ariel ride and then next door to meet Ariel. She is Sally's favorite and Sally insisted on bringing her stuffed baby Ariel for the pictures too. 

After that we made our way over to Winnie the Pooh. This will be the order I do things from now on. We basically walked onto every ride!

After that it was time for Peter Pan (first fast pass), meeting princesses, Small World, Dumbo, etc. 

Our second fast pass was for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train!!

We had a quick lunch at Columbia Harbor House, rode Haunted Mansion and then it was time for Splash Mountain. This was Sally's first time. She was worried the whole time about when the big drop would be but ended up loving it in the end!

After riding Big Thunder Mountain (another first for Sally-she LOVED it!!), we grabbed my favorite Disney snack...a Dole Pineapple Whip Float!! We ate it while waiting for the Tiki Room to start. 

After that it was time for Haunted Mansion and then the afternoon parade (so good every time!), Pirates of Caribbean and the Jungle Cruise. 

We had dinner reservations that evening at a new place, Skipper Canteen. I was excited to try it since it is pretty new and has gotten mixed reviews. 

Here is a picture of the inside. 

I let Sally order a special drink with a light up Ariel on it. If you know me in real life, you will know that this is not something I would normally do but its the special things that make Disney extra magical so I went for it. 

I ordered the Schweitzer Slush. It had boba balls on the top and it was yummy!!

The bread was really good...served with a honey sauce. We tried not to eat it all but it was too good!

For dinner I ordered the "Tastes Like Chicken Because It Is". As someone who love Asian food, I LOVED this!! I cant wait to go again and will order this for sure!! It was awesome!

Sally ordered the kids chicken noodle soup. It had an Asian flair. She liked it but didn't eat it all. Her meal came with a dessert so she got the Volcano. It was basically chocolate cake with pop rocks and a sugar sculpture on top. She loved it!! We loved this place and will be adding it to our normal rotation of restaurants. 

We had booked the Happily Ever After Dessert Party that night (mistake having a sit down dinner a few hours before because we were still full and couldn't eat very much at the party). I was super excited because I had never done this party and really wanted a great view of the new fireworks. Since there is so much projected onto the castle, you dont really get the full effect unless you are in front of the castle. The dessert parties are not cheap, but the stress of not having to get a spot 2 hours early may be worth it to you. 

There are two options for the party. One is viewing the fireworks from Tomorrowland Terrace ($79 for adults and $47 for kids) and also viewing from the Plaza Garden ($59 for adults and $35 for kids). The Plaza Garden is cheaper and a better view in my opinion. Both options eat desserts in Tomorrowland Terrace before the show. The guests with Plaza Garden ticket are then escorted out to the viewing area. There are no chairs but you can sit or stand on the fake grass. 

Check in was easy. We were given a tour of where everything was and escorted to our table. That's when the bottom dropped out of the sky and it started pouring! I was immediately concerned on how we were going to see the show. 

They had sparkling cider, milk, water, coffee, lemonade and hot chocolate. 

Tons of dessert offerings and also cheese, fruit, ice cream, etc. 

We made plates and tried to eat...we were still so full from dinner though!!

The rain finally stopped and after giving us free ponchos, they led us out to the Plaza Garden. We got a great view of the castle!! This is something we will for sure do next time!! I really loved how stress free it was!!! The new show is amazing and I found myself tearing up a few times. Disney is just so magical!!! It was pretty late when we got back to the hotel. We went to sleep very fast so we could be ready for a fun day at Epcot the next morning!!
