Chapter 21. Finally in the Magic Kingdom Part 1

Chapter 21. Finally in the Magic Kingdom part 1

hope most of you are still there, been busy the last week.

on with the show.

We were now in Disney World for a few days and have yet to step food in the MK, i know what were we thinking right.

So alarm goes off at 6, parker is up by 6:15 we wait to wake Noelle up till 6:45 shove some Delicious muffins and drinks down there throats and hit the door at 7:10.

We were at the MK gates by 7:50 and it was already open so we head to the lockers and stash some stuff for the rest of the night. which was a good idea.

It was time to head into the magical land we all love and adore, but not without stopping for a map, parker loves the maps so was thrilled to get his own.

almost to the main street to see that wonderful castle.


we round the corner and spot not only the castle, but the trolley which the kids loved...and sadly we never ended up getting on.

on the list for next time though.

ohh and that stupid crane in the background.



we make it a point to hit the photopass person and while we are getting noelle out of the stroller i tell parker to go up and have his own shoot he does not shy away from that.


and a few photopass ones.

his face cracks me up in this one.








then we get the whole family in there for some fun.



after our little photo shoot we head off towards the castle.


and for the first time see what it looks like without dumbo behind the carousel.



of course it looks different now, but this is what it looked like of the mine ride.


i enjoyed seeing the new detail of the road as we enter the dumbo area.


this is what the new detailed area of the stroller parking looks like.


to the left is the entrance return for the fast pass to the right is the stand by entrance to dumbo.




and likewise im sure most of you have seen pics of the new dumbo queue but if not, here is what the waiting area looks like now.


you walk through till you get to the area where they ask if you want to go straight through or actually go into the play area and wait your turn.


a view as we walk past the play area.


and straight out to the ride.


parker ready to fly high with dumbo.


looking back at candi and little tink ready to fly high



she loved the wind blowing in her hair.


i personally enjoyed the water under the dumbos i liked the extra touch it gave the ride.


looking out over the new construction that was going on at the time.


one ride down it was time to head back through the line and see the play area.



part two in next post

Chapter 21. Finally in the Magic Kingdom Part 2

continued.

so that is what we did.
a dumbo hanging from the ceiling.


part of the little kid play area.



the climbing area


more of the climbing area.




this time candi and parker road together and me and noelle flew with dumbo.



after we were done with the dumbo. we headed right next door to the great goofini ride. this is one of parkers favorite rides.



the first ride was with me, we liked how they changed the ride up and the new additions that they added to it. the entrance is now where the old exit used to be. candi hung back with noelle and right behind them was the new splash area for the casey junior train...we meant to bring clothes for them to play in here but never got around to it.



with the first ride of the train done, it was time for parker and candi to hitch a ride....

i forgot all about my speed setting to take rapid fire shots but still was able to get some good movement shots of them on this ride.



i enjoy the faces they are making on the ride.

parker looks like he is scared to death but is actually having a blast he loves this ride.


my little tinkerbelle waiting patently for the next attraction.



and the detail in the sidewalks are very well done, notice the bear paw prints.



on the construction walls they had posters all around we wished they would have moved the lights up a little bit so we could get that out of the picture it would have made for some nice framed prints in there rooms.




but this one looks good without the light on it. so that works.


will try and squeeze in another update tomorrow but we will see, if not hope everyone has a great Christmas and enjoys some family time if you are able to partake in it.

Great pictures, though.

Oh my goodness! Love the castle pics with Parker! He is such a little Disney pro! Your family pic is great, too! And then your little Tinkerbell - that is just such a precious shot!

Merry Christmas to the Fauntelroy family!!! And to all your faithful readers, too!

Love the trip report so far. The new Dumbo/Barnstormer area looks really cool. I am looking forward to my DS's first ride on Dumbo on our June trip. I am looking forward to reading the rest. The tips about traveling with young kids is great help to us.

Fabulous update, Dan!

I love the pictures of the new Fantasyland expansion...I can't wait to see it in person!

Hope you survived the snowstorm and had a fabulous Christmas holiday, too. We gave the kids the puzzle and Meredith had it figured out in 3 minutes flat.

Then it was like "no big deal"...My sister put it into perspective when she said, "you are going to disney for you and Mark not for the kids!"

Too right! Anyway, keep the updates coming - the pictures of happy smiling faces is just what we need right now!
