Great MVMCP updates! Too bad about the boys not liking Barnstormer. I can sympathize!

The pictures of Harper dancing with the characters at the dance party are so precious. She looks like she is having the best time!

Ahhh...Barnstormer!! I was suprised it was as fast as it was. I didnt expect that with the low height requirement. Oh well, at least the little boys tried it.

Harper had such a great time at the dance party. She absolutely LOVES Toy Story -- especially Jessie! She really had a great time that night.

Day 1, Part 7 MVMCP Once Upon A Christmastime Parade

Day 1, Part 7 MVMCP Once Upon A Christmas Time parade

While we waited for the second parade to start, I went across the street to pick up some popcorn. While I was waiting in line, Hunter & Harper headed off to get more cookies and hot chocolate from the nearby location. When they were on their way back, Duffy was headed to his M&G near where we were seated. Harper wanted her picture with Duffy, so Bo gave them the other camera and Hunter took a picture for her.



Waiting for the parade







I was SOOOOOO excited to see this parade...like crazy excited!

I apologize that my pictures are not great. My battery in my Nikon was about to go out, so most of these were taken with my smaller camera.































The parade was amazing! Wonderful! Beautiful! Fun!

Up next -- finishing out MVMCP

Day 1, Part 8 MVMCP Finish

Day 1, Part 8 MVMCP Finish

After the Once Upon A Christmastime Parade we discussed what to do since the time was now about 1045pm. We decided to get a few more cookies and another hot chocolate since it was getting really chilly.

We decided to head over to It's A Small World since the boys were still awake. We parked the stroller and walked right on. We were the only people in our boat.



In the middle of IASW, Evan fell asleep -- must have been from the excitement of all the singing

We left IASW and we saw...Scrooge Mc Duck!! He was the one character I was hoping to see!!!! There were a couple people in line, so Hunter, Harper & I got in line (Jaxon was quickly falling asleep in the stroller by now!) When we were the next ones up to meet him, Scrooge had to go and check on his money, but they told us he would be back in about 5 minutes. Sure enough, he was! It was about 1135pm by the time we finished up with Scrooge.



Since Bo hadnt ridden Space Mountain yet, I told him to take Hunter & Harper and they could go ride it while I stayed with the boys.

The little boys were crashed out!!





I was watching the time while I was sitting there in Tomorrowland. It was fun watching people sprint to Space Mountain as the time was ticking down...1155pm...1156pm. Bo and the kids came off the ride at 1201am. They said there was no wait and they pretty much walked right on.

So...2 character meets, Holiday Wishes, Once Upon A Christmastime Parade, Dance Party, Space Mountain x2, Mad Tea Party x2, Dumbo, Barnstormer, Haunter Mansion, Its A Small World -- I think we got quite a bit accomplished during our MVMCP time.

As we were leaving we took a few more pictures.





I love the holiday topiaries!!



As we headed down Main Street, it was snowing!













We headed to the bus stop. There werent too many people waiting for our bus, so we all got a seat on the next one to arrive. By the time we got back to the hotel, all 4 kids were knocked out. We woke up Hunter & Harper & Jaxon, and I carried Evan. We got back up to the room and got the kids quickly in PJ's and I got clothes out for the next day for everyone. Bo & I went out on the balcony to see the view at night -- it was even more beautiful at night. We got to bed about 2am and were exhausted!!

Up next, a few more MVMCP bonus pics & final thoughts on the party

The parade was super amazing! The skiers (their pic will be in my "bonus" MVMCP post) were fun! They stayed in our area a couple minutes b/c they had to let the rest of the parade move up some. One of the guys told Hunter his Jack Christmas hat was awesome!

The toy soldiers were my fave though!!

Day 1, Part 9 MVMCP bonus pics & final thoughts

Day 1, Part 9 MVMCP bonus pics & final party thoughts

Just wanted to share a few more pictures from Once Upon A Christmastime Parade -- it really was beautiful, and having seen this parade, makes me even more excited to see Boo to You in October!!

Scrooge!!



7 Dwarves





Mickey & Minnie's float





To the candy shop









Skiers



And one more pic of the Toy Soldiers



Have you checked out the training video Disney Parks released of the Toy Soldiers preparing for MVMCP?? Its less than 2 minutes and it is the CUTEST thing ever!!

Here is the link!!

So what did we think of our first MVMCP??

Hands down worth it!! Having the lower crowds in the park to really immerse yourself in the holiday surroundings -- the parade at night is amazing!

We would not hesitate to do MVMCP again! In fact, we hope to be able to do another December trip in a few years

Up next, Epcot
