I was reminded that we did add a day at MK for this trip and I should say something about it before we go again IN 22 DAYS!!!!!
It was a special trip for one big reason. Declan has always been very close with his DGF (DW's Dad) and wanted him to come to MK with us. We knew if that were to happen we would need to take them and on this trip the timing worked out for us.
The Grandparents decided to spend the month of March in Florida and they had rented a house in Kissimmee. We say this as our chance and gave them a day at MK for Christmas. So March 8th was to be the day and it was a day of a few firsts:
MK wasn’t too busy that morning so we were able to get lots done. The crowds did pick up through the day but it still wasn’t too bad at all. Throughout the day we were able to ride/see the following:
Late in the afternoon some people were getting a little tired out so we decided to head out. Since we took the monorail over, we took the ferry back found the car and were back in Kissimmee somewhere between 5 and 6 pm.
We all had a great time and the best part was hearing my FIL say over dinner “That was fun. I didn’t think I would enjoy that but I did. I see why you guys like it so much now.” A footnote to that is when I returned to Florida at the end of March to help him drive back (by that I mean do all the driving) I took him to EPCOT for the Flower and Garden Show. We spent most of the day wandering around, taking pictures and checking out the displays throughout the park. He then said he would need to bring MIL back to EPCOT and since they will have seen 2 of the parks they probably should see the rest. Another Disney Convert!!
To finish this off here are some pictures of our day at MK.
