Our 2nd Day at Disney - Magic Kingdom

Our second day at Disney World was spent at my favorite park, the Magic Kingdom. I think of all the parks, this one has my fondest childhood memories though I actually only went once as a kid and was already 11 years old. :) Everything about Magic Kingdom transports you to another world and what can be better than stepping into a real life storybook. It leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. We love everything about this place, those beautiful lands they've created and the fantastical rides they've placed within them but even more brilliant than Splash Mountain, It's a Small World and Dole Whips is that awesome character parade and Cinderella's castle. Those 2 features are my absolute favorite and it's really hard to miss them, which is a bonus.

We began our day in Adventureland, with pirate and mermaid makeovers at Pirates League. We had missed the opportunity to do the princess makeover at the castle but were not disappointed in this more pirate-y experience. In fact, after visiting Bippidi Boppidi Boutique in Disney Springs the next afternoon for more makeovers (I know!), this one was much, much cuter. So here are loads of pictures of that little adventure. Scarlet was petrified of the idea (have me hug a stranger in a costume instead mama!) so we could not convince her to get her hair and makeup done. But boy did these littles look cute!

 And here's a peek at the parade that swept past our doors just as we finished up lunch. S waved and waved, making sure every character was enthusiastically greeted. 
Happy rides and happy hand in hand skipping through the park ... 
Throwback pic of my sister and I, as we have the same one as an 11 and a 8 year old. :)
Finally, that blazing sun began to soften and set ... 
... and we crowded in front of the castle to watch that crazy magic unfold.
