The Magic Kingdom

Day two, we woke up and headed to mine and Sophie Kate's favorite place...Disney's Magic Kingdom.  Our first order of buisness was going to see Anna and Elsa.

While the boys were riding roller coasters, Sophie Kate and I went to see Rapunzel and Cinderella...
 I love all the conversations they have together.

 Sophie Kate's face in these pictures with Cinderella is priceless.

This wasn't even close to what all we did in the Magic Kingdom that day.  With the special pass (the Genie pass) they gave us (you can see it on Jacob in the picture below), we went around the Magic Kingdom seeing all of our favorites...

 Princess Belle with our Princess Belle...

 Sweet Minnie, SK smiled so big for her...

And along the way we rode all the rides too, many of them multiple times.  Sophie Kate rode the Teacups, Buzz Lightyear, Pirates of the Carribbean, Dumbo and the Haunted Mansion.  Part of the reason I love Disney so much is that they let our girl ride anything she wants to ride.  
There was plenty of time along the way for ice cream and funnel cakes too.  We had to pace ourselves because the Magic Kingdom was open from 8am-1am that day.

One of the neatest things that happened that day was that we were pulled out of a 45 minute wait at Be Our Guest Restuarant.  We had just walked up to the back of the line and had asked how long the wait was, when one of the Disney cast members saw our pass and told us to follow them.  She took us straight to the counter to order and then took us to a seat.  That, I have to say, was quite lovely because we really wanted to eat there but didn't want to wait that long...that to me was Disney at it's best.
Sophie Kate was in her Princess Belle dress that day too, so it could not have worked out any more perfectly...of course it did, we were at Disney.

We saw many of these characters after the sun went down. We love late night at Disney.  One of my favorite things at Magic Kingdom at night is the Electrical Parade.  We caught the later of the two parade times that night, so we found ourselves sitting and watching the Electrical Parade at 11:00pm.  The perfect ending to a magical day.
