So much fun in Florida: Part 3

As you read in our previous blog posts, we had an AWESOME time at Disney World over spring break…and there’s still a lot more to tell.

On our last full day there, we spent the morning just lounging at the pool at the Wilderness Lodge.

After we got ready and had lunch, we took the boat across Bay Lake for another day at Magic Kingdom.

As we walked in, we came across the Main Street Fire Engine and the fire chief…

We also snapped a few family photos in front of Cinderella’s Castle as walked down Main Street USA.

We spent the rest of the afternoon revisiting Noah’s favorite spots from the previous day. We started in Tomorrowland and rode the Transit Authority People Mover again.

Then we stopped by Pete’s Silly Side Show to visit Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck.

Our next stop was Frontierland where we rode Big Thunder Mountain Railroad again. Check it out!

And here is a short video too. (As a quick reminder: If you’re reading this post in an email, you may need to open the blog webpage in order to view the video. To do so, just click on the title of the post (the link in blue) at the top of the email to open the blog in your web browser.)

You can definitely tell that Noah had a blast speeding through the curves and dips around the mountain’s peaks and caverns. And don’t worry, this roller coaster was fine for Noah’s age. We never went upside down, and the dips weren’t that steep – whew!

Here are a few photos of us outside of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad too…

We headed to Fantasyland next. Our first stop was the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh for a ride in the honey pots through the Hundred Acre Woods. We didn’t get any good pictures of the ride (it was too dark inside), but here’s a fun photo of Noah playing with the toy bees in the beehive while standing in line.

Then we headed to the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train to ride the roller coaster again. Here are a few pictures from Disney’s cameras…

And here’s a quick video of our ride. Yep, Noah loved it!

Next we headed back to Tomorrowland to ride the race cars again at the speedway. Here are a few photos of the back of Ryan and Noah’s car. I let them win! Ha.

Whew, we had a busy afternoon! We headed back to the hotel to relax for a few hours and have supper.

Then we went back to Magic Kingdom for some nighttime fun. Here are a few photos of Main Street USA and Cinderella’s Castle at dusk.

Next we headed to Cinderella’s Castle to see the Wishes Fireworks display! This was our first time seeing the fireworks while in Magic Kingdom (we’ve only seen them from afar in the past). It was awesome!

Here’s a video too…

The nighttime fun didn’t end there! Magic Kingdom was having Extra Magic hours that day (it was open until 11:00 pm), so we squeezed in a few more rides too – score! We started with riding the People Mover again.

And here is a short video of our ride too…

Then we headed to Fantasyland and rode the oversized teacups on the Mad Tea Party ride from Alice in Wonderland. Noah loved making the teacup spin and whirl faster and faster by turning the metal wheel in the middle of the teacup – whew!

And here is a short video of our spin in the teacup too…

We were also able to fit in a relaxing boat ride in “It’s a Small World.”

Here’s a short video of our ride – and yes, you’ll recognize the jingle!

It was really cool to see Magic Kingdom at night!

The next morning we rode the boat over to the Contemporary resort for one last ride on the monorail.

We had a blast at Disney World! Noah’s favorite things were the roller coasters and the monorail. My favorite part was seeing the Wishes Fireworks display at Cinderella’s Castle. We’ve still only seen a small portion of Disney World, so we definitely want to visit again…maybe in a few years when Noah is a little taller so that we can check out some new rides.

After we packed our bags and checked out of our hotel, we rode the Disney Magical Express bus back to the Orlando airport for the next part of our Florida adventure – the beach! Stay tuned for more!
