- I got to ride the Pirates of the Caribbean ride for the first time!
- I tried to pull the sword out of the stone. I'm not the chosen one or whatever. I never really paid attention in that movie.
- We got the cutest Alice in Wonderland desserts from Cheshire Cafe! They're White Rabbit & Red Queen cake cups.
My second trip to Disney World was just as magical as the first, although much hotter! We started out the trip by getting celebration buttons from the cast members (Laker & I got anniversary buttons, & were told "happy anniversary" throughout our entire day!), then we took the ferry into Magic Kingdom. My sisters & I Disneybounded as Anna, Elsa, & Mickey - See if you can figure out who's who! (For those of you who are unfamiliar with Disneybound, click here.)
We saw the famous Partners Statue, then got our traditional picture with Cinderella's Castle, in which we happened to be standing in the exact same order as last year, & Laker happened to be wearing the same shirt. Taryn & Mackenzie are also wearing the same colors, just reversed. I posted both for comparison - This year is on the left, & last year is on the right. We just added Ben to the photo!
We rode a few rides, then ventured over to Maurice's cottage for Enchanted Tales with Belle. In case you're somehow unaware, Belle is my absolute favorite Disney character (along with Alice!), so this was very special for me! Keiara & Miya got to be part of Belle's story, & then we got to meet Belle (which was on my Bucket List!).
We also got to meet Gaston. He was fun because he was very... interactive. Let's just say Laker & my dad left so they wouldn't have to watch him hit on us. & he actually arm wrestled a man in line in front of us! Keiara & Miya went first, & he asked if they wanted to come close for a picture. Miya was not into it. haha In the end, she did get a photo with him, & had him sign her autograph book. With Taryn & me, he was a little more forward. With all of Gaston's arrogance, he told Taryn, "I saw where your eyes were going! Let me help you out." & he turned around & flexed his butt muscles. Then he almost knocked us over pulling us close for a photo (hence the awkward posing in the second photo). Mackenzie & Ben's was probably funniest though. He called Ben her "ex boyfriend," & then tried to knock him out of the photo with his muscles!
One of our favorite rides was Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. It's an arcade style game, where you have to ride through while shooting targets. I took a photo of our final scores - Taryn's is on the left & mine is on the right. Clearly, I was a little more skilled at the game. & our ride photo was SO flattering. I'm blinking & Taryn looks ferocious!
The Little Mermaid ride is a favorite for my little sisters. It was especially fun this time because we also got to meet Ariel! She's Keiara & Mackenzie's favorite. You can see Keiara's excitement (On the right in her photo with Ariel!). Ariel was adorable - She called me Angelfish, & asked us about human things, like sunglasses.
A few other fun moments from the day...
I'll post about Diagon Alley & the rest of Universal Studios soon!
