FC: Walt Disney World Vacation Magic Kingdom December 16th & 17th 2009
1: For Christmas this year I decided it would be a great time to spend it in Florida! A chance to finally see Walt Disney World decorated for the holidays! Then we would spend the next week visiting with relatives. Merry Christmas Smith Family!
2: We flew from Rochester New York to Orlando Florida on December 16th, 2009. We got out just before the snow started! | There was a little turbulence on the flight, but a nice smooth landing.
3: Disney's Port Orleans Riverside | The girls went swimming, then we went to get dinner. Aria saw the artist and just had to have her caricature done! It turned out cute.
6: 12-17-2009 Arriving at The Magic Kingdom | The Christmas decorations were amazing! | Aria all ready for a fun filled day!
7: Pinnochio | Pluto | The Decoration on Main Street facing the entrance/ exit. | The four of us and my mom on the first day of an amazing holiday vacation at Walt Disney World
9: Minnie & Mickey Topiaries on the bridge to Tommorrowland. A side view of the castle and look Tinkerbell followed us there!
10: The first ride of the day was Space Mountain, and the girls loved it!!
11: In Tomorrowland, Aria was asked to lead everyone into the Stitch Ride, so they gave her a certificate. We also rode the Astro-Orbitor for the first time!
13: We went on most of the rides in Tommorrowland. The Monster's Inc. show was real cute! The Buzz Lightyear ride is always a lot of fun
15: The Parade was full of music and dancing! The kids participated also!
16: The Parade was so much fun! All the characters were dancing and having a good time!
17: The Haunted Mansion is one of my favorite rides at The Magic Kingdom, We always have to drag the girls on it. I think Alexis finally kept her eyes open, Aria didn't, she had her head buried in her daddy's shoulder!
18: Aria was so excited to see Tianna! We almost didn't get to see them b/c the line was closed off, but Jeff talked to the guy and he let us in! While we were in Florida Aria's class went to see the movie,so she was happy to see them in person!
21: Our lunch was even more special b/c I didn't know there would be other Princesses also. Sleeping Beauty.. Princess Aurora has always been one of Alexis' favorites.
22: Snow White from " Snow White and The Seven Dwarf's"
23: Jasmine from "Alladin"
24: Belle from "Beauty and The Beast"
25: Lunch was delicious, the girls got wands and they gave Jeff a sword b/c he asked "Do I get one too" Dessert was scrumptious!
26: Mickey's house was decorated for Christmas. So Cute!
27: Mickey's Garden, and Pluto's doghouse.
30: With Minnie & Mickey Mouse at The Magic Kingdom
32: Pixie Hallow in the land of Fairies
33: They commented on us wearing red then asked the girl's "What is your Fairy Talent", They couldn't come up with one so I said "Spreading Christmas Cheer". Then we all sang "We wish you a Merry Christmas
34: With Tinker Bell, Alexis & Aria were so excited to see the Fairies!
37: With Fawn. She was playing with Aria's jingle bell hair tie. She was fun!
38: You can see Jeff in the picture of them on "The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wiseacre Farm" | Aria on "Cinderella's Carrousel" in Fantasyland
39: "It's a small world "is everyone's favorite ride!
44: We stayed later for" Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party" from 7pm-Midnight. It was an extra ticket price.
46: We watched them light Cinderella's Castle, it was like a small show, the Fairy Godmother helped light it in stages.
48: Main Street, USA Magic Kingdom
49: After leaving "Main Street" we went to Frontierland and got on "The Jungle Cruise" for it's last ride of the day
50: We went on "The Pirates Of The Caribbean" next. Love that Jack Sparrow! Then Jeff and the girls rode "Big Thunder Mountain!" They loved it so much and the line was so short, they rode it a second time.
51: We waited in line to see "Beauty & The Beast", but then they switched out the characters before we got up to see them
52: Snow White and Prince Charming | While waiting for the new characters I went and got us the free hot chocolate and cookies, and we took pictures by their pretty Christmas trees.
54: Mr. Scrooge and Donald Duck. they were switching just as we got to the front of the line!
56: Once we got up to see Minnie she had to take a 5 minute break! ( our luck all night!) The fireworks started just as she returned, so we got our pictures and got out of there! She was adorable in her Christmas dress!
59: The Fireworks are the most amazing that I have ever seen!
65: It was so much fun seeing Clara the Cow! She is one of my favorites
67: The "Mickey's Once Upon A Christmas Parade" was so magical! The costumes were amazing, and the characters were all dressed up for Christmas. The Soldiers were a bit creepy to me, but the dancing reindeer were the best! Santa brought up the end of the parade, how Magical!
68: "Celebrate The Seasons Show" at the Castle Forecourt Stage 11:20pm
69: The show started, then a few minutes later they announced it was canceled due to the sprinkling rain. I think it was dangerous for the dancers that the stage could be slippery.
73: Jeff, Alexis, Aria & Brenda Smith What a wonderful day at The Magic Kingdom. The Christmas season here is spectacular!
74: That night when we got back to our room, the maid had made elephants with our towels and pillows! She also had Midnight ( Alexis' stuffed animal that she has had forever) on top. So Cute!
75: Merry Christmas from the whole gang at Walt Disney World!
