Day One: Walt Disney World {the Magic Kingdom}

We haven't been to Disney as a family in years. YEARS. Even when we went last week it wasn't as an entire family, but I'll take it, it was more than half of us. Hubs, the three youngest of five and myself all went. The two oldest boys are "too cool" for Disney, so they say. I say, "one can NEVER be too old for Disney!" Soon enough they'll realize they missed out on the awesomeness that is Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin and The Tower of Terror!

When I purchased my ticket to Type-A Parent Boot Camp in Walt Disney World a few months ago Hubs suggested that we extend our stay a day on each end to take the kids to the parks. When he makes a suggestion I've learned to jump on the opportunity at that very moment or lose it all together. So we planned. Three days in three different parks with three kids in tow. And it was MAGICAL!

The other day I told you about McKinley's Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique experience. She still talks about becoming a princess for a day. {Truth be told, she's a princess every day!}

After we finished with the BBB, we headed to the Magic Kingdom for some family fun!

Day One at #typeaWDW
{I love the entrance to The Magic Kingdom. It's been the same for as long as I can remember.}

Day One at Magic Kingdom
{After going back through pictures on my phone I found this of my princess in front of the castle. I was afraid I didn't have one of her alone.}

{McKinley and I tried on Minnie Mouse Ears in a gift shop. This was actually at Downtown Disney before BBB...but, it was on day one of our trip.}

Day One at #typeaWDW
{We stayed in the All-Stars Movie Resort in the Toy Story section. We had to go through "Andy's Room" to get to our hotel room. Jett may have been a little excited to see all of his favorite toys JUMBO SIZED!}

Day One at #typeaWDW
{RC was even at our resort. I tell you what, Disney holds nothing back when creating these amazing resorts!}

We stayed at the Magic Kingdom until nearly midnight. Saw the fireworks show twice. Rode every ride we wanted to ride, thanks to the new FastPass+ system Disney has just launched {more on that soon}. Saw a few characters from afar. It was a great first day to our mini family vacay!

Stay tuned for Day Two: Walt Disney World {Hollywood Studios}.
