You're right- there's too much in the Magic Kingdom to narrow it down!

Stephanie, sorry I've been missing. I LOVE the pics from Lilian's birthday party (I remember those days at Chuck E Cheese ). I like your #5 countdown a lot -- a DIS Meet!!!!

I love the Beach Club -- you will really enjoy visiting there.

Also, like your MK day.

My favorite character is a tie between Tigger and Pluto (Tigger has a very slight edge).

I love the MK! Just walking under the train station gives me goose bumps! There is nothing better than the first sight of Cindy's Castle!

My favorite things at MK are the Carousel of Progress, TTA People Mover, Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain and the Pirates!

Here are some of my favorite MK photos!

Emily's 1st time on IASW!








My Dad & I on Dumbo!


Another of me, Dad & my sister. I think I was 14 in this one!


Finally, I'll leave you with this gem we saw in FL a few years back!

Some of my favorite MK moments

MK at night after closing


Meeting Tink



Pirates in the Magic Kingdom



A Dole Whip



An Empty Main Street before opening



Running through the castle on a wet and rainy morning. (Check out the guy behind me. He looks exhausted.)



It is such a Magical Place! I can't wait to hear all about the Magic you create

Hi Stephanie! I don't get to post too much anymore because I'm so busy, but wanted to pop in and say I am SO excited for you!!! I hope you have a wonderful time and Lilian has an extra magical birthday, not much longer now!
I saw that you were asking for favorites at Magic Kingdom, that's such a tough one! I guess just walking down Main St. first thing in the morning after seeing the Opening Ceremony and seeing the castle in the distance. I also love the singers and dancers on the trolley on Main St. as well, and Wishes makes me cry everytime, doesn't matter how many times I've seen it!

My favorite resorts are Wilderness Lodge and Beach Club, but I've never had a bad stay at any of the resorts, those themes just feel comfortable to me

Thanks Mary! I hope this is a good foretelling of how Lilian will do with the Characters at Disney.

I know I love Epcot but I am really looking forward to exploring MK too. I feel like there is so much that I missed that I am looking forward to filling this gap.

I know you are busy Kathy in general and then with Mark recovering from surgery (thank goodness it turned out so well).

Thanks Kathy!

Thank you for sharing the great pictures!! I love the one with DD and TinkerBell--so cute!! I just love the pirate one too--such great memories.

I'm looking forward to seeing what stands out to me and my family.

Bit of exciting (to me) life news: I got a new sewing machine last night!! My last one broke and DH was kind enough to let me get a new one. It is snazzy! I get to go into the store I bought it at the end of the month for a class for an intensive learning session with my machine. They will help me learn to use it to the fullest!!

Now that I have shared that news with you, onward with the second to last thing on my countdown…

2. Seeing the Castle!!!!


Ever since we started talking about taking Lilian to Disney, I knew the Castle was going to be a big deal. Lilian loves seeing the Castle and is always pointing it out on Disney movie intros or whenever she sees it in a picture in a book or here on the DIS.

Here are two pictures of the Castle from our last trip:



I’m sure I will be taking a ton of photographs in general, but I am looking forward to hopefully exploring the Castle more hopefully. I don’t remember really seeing any of the beautiful tile mosaics even though we ate inside last time. : Hopefully it will be open for us to do so!!

Today’s video is a bit different: Disney World in 3D using Google Earth. Here is another little blurb about Disney’s affiliation with Google Earth

Tomorrow is the last item on my countdown!!

I'm looking forward to seeing- and photographing- the castle as well! It's funny to me that I remember a silly little show we saw in TT but have no memory of seeing the castle in person. It really is going to be like seeing it for the first time for me as well.

I can't believe you're already down to the 2nd to last item on your list! You'll be in WDW before you know it!
