Sunday, February 1st

We arrived at the Magic Kingdom via the Pop Century bus. We headed straight to the guest relations ticket window and turned in our AP vouchers for our actual annual passes. This took less than 10 minutes.
We entered the Magic Kingdom and the joy coming off of both of us was palpable! I cried when I saw the castle looming in the backgroud of Main Street. I always cry at my first sight of this! I am a big WDW baby! :p
We always ride Pirates of the Caribbean first. This was the first ride we ever rode together at we rode it again. This ride never gets old. We always have to look up at the foot with the hair as we go under the bridge. After Pirates, we headed to Liberty Square for some lunch. We ate at Columbia Harbor House. We rode Haunted Mansion after lunch and then decided to ride BTMRR. The stand by wait was at 30 minutes so we grabbed a fastpass and rode the steam train around the whole park while we waited for our fastpass time. I love the train. It is such a nice place to relax and cool off during your day at the Magic Kingdom and your still able to enjoy the Magical atmosphere. After the train ride it was time for BTMRR. Loved it! Everytime we ride it we have to point to the bats and yell out "BATS!"...the first time we rode this together we were also with my nephew, who was 6 at the time, and he yelled that as we pulled into the cave. He also yelled out during our inaugural ride on BTMRR, "We are all going crazy!!" I always miss him when we are at WDW. WDW is awesome always..don't get me wrong, but enjoying it with a young child and seeing everything through their eyes is unbelievable!
Then, we strolled through was packed!! We headed to Tomorrowland and did CoP. I had never done this was always closed when we had been here before. I didn't think it was that great, but I don't have any childhood memories of it like Amy does. She knows every word of the song! We agreed it was time to head back to the resort. We had been up since 3:00 a.m. and we were both getting very tired. We did a little window shopping on Main Street on our way out. Our luggage was in our room when we arrived back at the resort, so we unpacked and relaxed a little.
We had dinner at the food court at the resort. The food court offered the usual food court items. The food wasn't spectacular nor was it horrible. I guess I would say the food was average.
We went to bed early--dreaming of our coming week at WDW!
Coming soon: Day 2-Animal Kingdom!
