ETA: Ok, I read the LTT part. I don't want spoilers for the rest of the TR though. I agree with you about the dessert there. It isn't something that based on the description I'd ever be too excited about, but once you taste it, it is amazing!
I feel silly copying and pasting, so I will prob link to all of them... just don't read ahead, you will be ok!!!!

We woke up bright and early to be at Magic Kingdom to try and do something I have never managed to do…. But first we had to eat breakfast!
We headed down to the Mara where I got my precious Mickey waffles!!!




You can read more abov gut this meal HERE in my dining report!
I was a little surprised as the dining room was CRAZY empty.




Apparently not everyone was trying to make rope drop that morning!
I used this as a chance to get some photos without people thinking I was too strange…

The condiment area




The air powered sauce station




Our room was super close to the Mara/pool area so we headed back up to grab our bag and to drop off our mugs.
We were running a touch early, so we stepped out onto the balcony and noticed several hot air balloons in the distance.




And of course a few animals!




We headed down to the bus stop where luckily we didn’t have to wait too long for a bus. And arrived with PLENTY of time to stake out a great spot for the Welcome Show!
We got a few photos




And I met a DISer…. (IF YOU ARE HERE SAY HI!!!)




The family behind us was singing with the music so of course I joined in!
Here you can see the crowd starting to gather and people trying to get photos with the sign




There was a mom who took about 16534635406345 photos and had a BIG line of people waiting behind her that she just ignored. She would move a strand of hair, fix a bow, beg for a smile, then start all over. People around us started to get really upset at them. She had her kids positioned so that no one else could get a photo around them, it was kinda bizarre…

While we were standing waiting another DISer I have been DYING to meet checked in on the monorail saying she was headed our way. It became a game of trying to catch each other online because my phone kept losing reception!

Very soon the show started, and a weird man looking for his family stood directly in front of me. I looked at Josh, and said “I can’t see” the man looked at me and said “you will be fine” and then stood in front of me for almost the whole show, with his back turned to the train station, looking for someone. You can see him on the right in this photo, VERY close to me.




Oh Look, here he is, LITERALLY in front of me




If this is you, or your family, let them know that they could have stood behind me, and found you because you were running late because you couldn’t find your shoe in the room (I kid you not)
OK RANT OVER.

YAY for family of the day!







Opening the park!

I love those things.

And in regards to your dining review: Fruit at Disney World is a complete rip off. I never get it there. And I like fruit.

This is why the term "photobomb" was invented.

You'll be fine???? Really????

Now what would have been awesome, would have been if his family was Family of the Day and he missed it because he was too busy turning around looking the wrong way.

First of all, that guy is so rude! Ugh.

Second of all, I LOVE the opening show. I almost got a little emotional looking at your pictures because in about 2 months and 1 day, I'll be seeing the show!!!!!

Please at work laugh at me about it. When they need a coffee mug though, they know who has an extra in their desk!

They were too busy looking for a shoe to be family of the day

We went to the left, and decided to head right over to jump on Big Thunder Mountain. As we walked onto Main St. I was greeted with the most beautiful sight in the world…




AND it stopped to let people on!!!! I looked at Josh, he said yes and on we went! I was so excited because we had spent a big part of our Magic Kingdom days last trip trying to figure out how to get a ride because I love the trolley show so much!

We waived at people as we went and I was beyond thrilled. I know it seems silly but this was a big deal to us!

The nice people in front of us were willing to take a picture for us!







Seeing the castle from the trolley was another bit of magic that I will never forget!




When we got to the end everyone piled off, and Josh took my picture with my beloved trolley!




Thanks for the ride!




We, along with a few others headed right for Big Thunder!







The posted wait was only about 5 minuets




Josh was ready and excited!










The refurbished queue area was very nice, but a little confusing! We along with a few other people went the wrong way and had to be flagged down by a Cast Member!

We very much enjoyed our ride, and when we came out decided to head over to New Fantasy land. While deciding what to do we overheard a woman trying to figure out how to get over there, and offered to let her walk with us. She was pushing a stroller and super nice, so we strolled down by the water on the bridge type path, and soon enough were saying goodbye when we realized that the haunted mansion was walk on!







Since there was really no line we decided to go though the interactive area and play!













I just love all the details! I got sneezed on by the bathtub right after taking this photo!










We were taken into the fist room where we got to see the painting change, which I had never stopped to see before!




We were then asked to step to the “dead center of the room”




After escaping from the happy haunts we decided to head back to New Fantasyland to explore a bit more!
