So, my husband and I decided to take one last trip before our first baby arrives. We based our trip around attending Dapper Day, which unfortunately fell the day after our APs expired. This was our first year ever owning APs (what an AMAZING year itís been), and while we wish we could renew, we do not plan to do so until a few more years when our little girl can enjoy the parks with us.
Anyway, letís start the actual TR! Just a warning Ė this might be a little slow to complete because Iím working, and there are lots of pictures of us (not so much the parks themselves) because I focused more on enjoying our time and due to the heat, we didnít spend as much time wandering the parks.
Ugh. The heat. I heard it reached 100 (I believe it!), which wouldnít be a huge deal for us being from AZ, but the humidity killed us. Despite this, we still managed to have a great time!
We headed out from AZ on Wednesday night as soon as my husband got home from work, and checked in to the Anabella at about 11:30pm. We immediately went to bed to check out early the next morning. We left the Anabella before 7:30am to check into the Grand Californian, where we would stay the next two nights, and get into the parks just after 9am to utilize our Magic Morning.
Knowing it would be a popular ride, our mission was to head straight to Peter Pan to ride it with as short of a wait as possible. We headed under the castle into Fantasyland!
I was a little disappointed to see the carousel covered for itís refurbishment:
Itís amazing how much the carousel adds to the entrance of Fantasyland.
We immediately got in line for Peter Pan.
And we were on the ride within only about 10 minutes!
Next, we took a ride on Pinocchio.
With Magic Morning, Fantasyland got a little crowded. We figured the crowd would disperse once the rest of the park opened up, so we took the time to take some photos while the areas were less congested.
Even with the power of two, I still canít get this dang sword out of the stone!
And I took a photo in front of the castle to document my progress.
And one more belly shot for now (youíll be seeing a lot of theseÖ sorry!)
Thatís all Iíve got time for this morning Ė hope you all enjoy it so far!
