Magic Kingdom Wednesday

Wednesday was another day at the Magic Kingdom.  We were up early and arrived at the park about 10 minutes after rope drop.  We had to wait for the rest of the family to arrive so we checked out the new Mickey and Minnie meet and greet at Exposition Hall.  They offer fast passes but since it was so early there was only a 5 minute wait.  The magic theme is awesome and we loves the special time that we got to spend with the Big Mouse!

From there we headed down Main St.

We came upon the Mayor of Main St. and we was a wonderfully kind man who talked with us for quite a while.disney 2011 042 - Copy (2)

We met up with our family member at the castle and got a wonderful picture on our matching shirts.   disney 2011 256

I don’t think that I showed the shirts yet, did I?  My family is not a matchy-matchy kind of group but I wanted special shirts for one day and they all agreed.  I think that they came out great, what do you think?  I had at least 6 people stop me that day and ask me where we got the shirts so that they could buy their own.  My family joked that I should made handed out business cards.  LOL

Here are close-ups of the front and backs.

We spent the morning riding rides.  Despite being one of the busiest times of the year we really didn’t wait in many lines.  We planned the days loosely with a touring plan, we arrived at the parks right when they opened and we relied heavily on fast passes.  I think that the longest line all week was no more than 15 minutes!!!!  disney 2011 052  disney 2011 070 disney 2011 072 disney 2011 075   disney 2011 282 disney 2011 337disney 2011 098 disney 2011 109disney 2011 108disney 2011 145disney 2011 146

We left the park after the 3pm parade to get out of the heat.  We swam in our pool for a few hours and then went back at night.We stayed until closing!

Lauren really wanted a hair wrap so she used her money to buy it for herself.  Kathryn tried on more hats while we waited!  LOL disney 2011 147 disney 2011 149 disney 2011 150 disney 2011 151 disney 2011 154

We managed to get an amazing spot for the light show on the castle as well as the fireworks.  We bought the kids each a Mickey ice cream bar but since it was still in the upper 90’s they melted faster than they could eat them.  Thank goodness for baby wipes!  LOL

We left the park at about 11:30.  Lauren and Kathryn were both pooped and begged to ride in the stroller.  They both promptly fell asleep.  Notice their 3year old brother walking out while his big sisters slept!
