Princess half marathon weekend, day 2

Wednesday, February 26, 2014
We spent all day last friday in the Magic Kingdom, and it was amazing. We got there at 8:30, a good 30 minutes before the park opened and stayed until nearly 11 at night. But in those 14 hours we did almost every single attraction in the park, including three rounds on space mountain, two on big thunder mountain, and a couple more in the haunted mansion.

Kristen, Christine, Kimmie and me ready for a magical day.

And of all the drawstring bags we each own, three of us decided to bring Hot Chocolate 15K bags. Thankfully they were each slightly different from one another, otherwise that could have been confusing.

I love how uncrowded the parks are early in the morning and late at night, you can get so much done. I think we rode 5 different things within the first 30 minutes of being in the park. For no particular reason other than it was listed first on our touring plan, the first thing we did was the tea cups. And it wound up being one of our favorite memories of the entire trip. All four of us crammed into one little cup (which was totally unnecessary since we were almost the only people on the entire ride) and proceeded to spin as fast as humanly possible. We laughed and screamed, Kimmie wound up curled in a fetal position and none of us could walk straight afterwards, but it was so worth it.

Then we went and rode the Barnstormer, Dumbo met Christine's princess, Ariel, and rode her attraction.

We got a quick bite to eat for lunch at Casey's corner, where I fell in love with the corn dog bites, or maybe I was just really hungry, but they hit the spot. And then we went and rode the Carrousel, the Magic Carpets, and met Jasmine and Aladdin. Kimmie was excited to meet her princess and prince charming.

And then took a spin on Buzz Lightyear where Christine and I got even with the other two for beating us on test track the previous day.

Lines were really not that bad until mid afternoon when we took a break for an early dinner reservation at Be Our Guest. This turned out to be really timely since it was beginning to sprinkle some rain. I think that dining experience is worth it's own post it was so incredibly awesome, and besides this post is getting a little long.

After dinner we went and met Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.

And with that we had met all four of the princesses we were running as during the marathon. Check! We got into the habit of asking characters to give us a pose to do. I think it makes for cuter pictures than just standing there smiling in picture after picture. We rode a few more rides before calling it a night. It is a sign you need to go to bed when you fall asleep in the haunted mansion (ahem, Kimmie). But since the other girls didn't have park hopper tickets we had to get every drop out of our Magic Kingdom day, and I think we did.
