What I Saw This Weekend…Disney Friends!

by Carrie with Children with 10 comments

We turned this past weekend into a three-day weekend and hit the road to visit friends… our Disney friends!  It was a quick day trip filled with lots of smiles, laughter and a few toddler tears. Overall, it was the perfect family day for us.

The girls were thrilled to see their friend Mickey and thanks to a short line – we also had the chance to meet Minnie in her new home as part of the Storybook Circus.

I was especially excited because I finally talked Maggie into going on “It’s a Small World” ride.  It was always one of my favorite rides as a little girl – all the bright lights, the pretty dolls dressed up in beautiful costumes – and of course, the song!

My favorite part on the ride has always been the room with the big hippo – the little look on his face and his little eyes that light up – I just love it!

It's A Small World Ride at Walt Disney World

There’s nothing better than spending the day at Walt Disney World with your family. Later this week, I’ll tell you more about our magical day – including pictures from our favorite parade!

What’s your little one’s favorite ride at Walt Disney World?

    Love your pics! We haven’t been to Magic Kingdom since New Fantasyland opened and I’m dying to go. My 2 year old loves the Haunted Mansion ride and tortures us when we take him on “It’s a Small World.” I can’t wait to see the rest of your pictures!

      Oh Brandi, New Fantasyland is amazing! I cry each time I see it! The Haunted Mansion is my favorite – I just wish my girls weren’t scared of it. (Too dark!)

      I’ll have some more pictures up later this week. Thanks for reading!

        I am hoping we will go soon, we are definitely in need of our Disney fix. We are huge Disney fans! My husband took me to Magic Kingdom on our first date because he worked for the company at the time. We live really close to the parks, but it has never really been in our budget to go often. I’m hoping to sweet talk my hubby into annual passes for the three of us this year.

          What a great first date! We are in Jacksonville, so it’s about a 2 1/2hr trip for us. I hope you are able to visit Mickey and his friends again soon!
