The first day of our trip, we went to the Magic Kingdom. As many of you may know, we go to Disneyland every year, so I was excited to see if it was different. It was very different. Just the sheer volume of people that they are prepared for is not what you typically see at Disneyland. They also have four parks, and a water park that is closed this time of year.
Upon entering, I headed for city hall with Ry. That is where you can get your DAS pass. The DAS pass is for those guests with disabilities that don't tolerate waiting in line well, or need an alternative method of entry. Ryan usually does very well, but we have learned from past experience, that he may need that if he becomes tired or overstimulated. The best part of traveling to Disney this time of year? NO LINES. No really. We rarely had to use his pass, and we were able to make same day dining reservations. (More on that later.)

The first ride that we did (after the obligatory castle photo) was the teacups. I just love the teacups. Look at his face!!
I forced my children to get silhouettes. They were in pain the whole time, but I love the way they turned out.
Have I mentioned that my kids are thrill seekers? They love every coaster and drop ride that they can find. Splash Mountain is no exception:
We rode a bunch of rides, and I attempted to feed the kids quick service pizza. They hated it, and were still hungry, so that was fun. I made a last minute reservation at Tony's, which is based on the Italian restaurant in Lady and the Tramp. The interior was charming and we were happy to get out of the impending rain storm (or so we thought).
If you have the chance, I highly recommend the Incredibles dance party. The kiddos loved it, and we all had a blast. Parking is insane at the Magic Kingdom, if we do it again we will stay at a resort on the Monorail. I will go into all of that on my next post! There are SO many things I wish I had known!
