Easily the best and my favorite day of the week. Day three was at Magic Kingdom! The Christmas party ticket was money well spent. It was another early morning and we were in the parks by 8:45 am. We had a breakfast reservation at Be Our Guest at 9:30 am. We walked down Main Street USA semi fast so we could be early to our reservation. There is just something magical about walking down the street and seeing the castle. It’s the most amazing feeling in the world. Breakfast at Be Our Guest was equally amazing. It was a bit pricey ($28), but it was really good. I had the Croissant Doughnut. It was amazing, I love anything fried and the banana caramel sause was so good. The inside of this restaurant looks like of the beast’s castle. There are three rooms to sit in and each have a theme. Since we went during Christmas the “windows” in the castle showed the forest while it was snowing. It was absolutely magical. After breakfast we took pictures in front of the castle and we explored the shops down Main Street.
Then we headed in to Tomorrowland! We had our first fast pass here at Space Mountain- the best of the three mountains in my opinion. This ride has always been my favorite at Magic Kingdom and at Disney World. My goal is to one day ride it with the lights on because I hear that it is so much better like that. After Space Mountain we went to ride Walt’s Carousel of Progress.None of my friends on the trip had never been on this attraction so I was really excited to take them to see it. This attraction holds a special place at Disney World, it was first debuted at the world Fair and it will never be shut down or removed from Disney World because Walt Disney himself created the ride and it will always serve as a memorial to him. TIP:if you are hot or just need to sit down for a spell, I absolutely recommend this ride. It is air conditioned on the inside and it is a moving theater that allows you to sit down and rest. Then we headed to meet Stitch. He has a meet and greet where Stitch’s Great escape used to be. The we headed through Fantasyland. We stopped at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique to get fairy dusted. TIP:You do not have to be a certain age to do this, the “fairy godmothers” in the store will do it for anyone as long as you ask nicely!
Then we headed in to Frontierlandfor our next fastpass. I had never been on Big Thunder Mountainbefore this trip and it was definitely a great ride!
We then headed to Advenureland for some Dole Whip! TIP: There are two places to get Dole Whip in this land. Aloha Isle has the actual pineapple Dole whip and other fun creations and Sunshine Tree Terrace and specialty dole whip creations. While eating our dole whip we walked to the area back in front of the castle and sat down on the hub grass a took a little break.
After our break we headed back into Fantasy Land for our last planned fastpass of the day. We were going to ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. This was a new ride to me because it was not at Disney World the last time I had been at Disney, so I was really excited to experience this ride! It was amazing and the end where you can see into the seven Dwarfs cottage is so adorable! Around this time Disney workers were trying to start clearing people form the park who did not have party tickets. We headed to rideIt’s a Small World. It was not packed at all, we walked right on.
Around this time if you did not have a ticket to Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Partyyou were being directed to exit the park and ticket holders were given a wristband and a party map! All heck broke loose after this. We all scattered trying to do everything. I went to ride The Voyage of the Little Mermaidby myself, then I rode Space Mountaintwice by myself and then two more time with some of my party members. I wandered around to the food stations to see what there was. I got a Snow Cone from Auntie Ray’s Galactic Goodiesand I got hot chocolate from somewhere. We then went to wander downMain Street USAto experience it at Christmas. During the Christmas party is “snows” (its bubbles) and it is wonderful and magical. We started to find our group so that we could find a space to sit/ stand together for the fireworks show. I can attest that my family were never fireworks or parade show people at Disney, but Disney really knows how to do fireworks and parades. I am a changed person and I can’t believe I was missing out on these sections of Disney!
Our day at Magic Kingdomwas the best day of the week, though I will say after being up and around at the park for over 15 hours we were definitely delirious trying to find our way back to our hotel. If you never have walked around Port Orleans: Riverside, it is very hard to navigate in the light and when you add darkness and exhaustion, it was terrible. I think we walked around for 20 minutes just laughing!
