Day one is a rap!


Well, our day had a very magical beginning. Our flight got an early start, resulting in a very early arrival in Orlando. Found Disney’s Magical Express, and were wisked away to Port Orleans Resort – Riverside in just about an hour. A quick bite, and we were headed to the Magic Kingdom.

We rode It’s a Small World first, followed by THE Haunted Mansion, the Hall of Presidents, Mickey.’ Philharmagic, Peter Pan with a fastpass, Pirates of the Caribbean, Tiki Room,  and Jungle Cruise.

Dinner was at the Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh and Friends. While the meal was short of spectacular, our waiter, Kip, was entertaining and efficient. Character interaction was a definite highlight of the evening. Pictures all come at the end of the journey.

One final note…make use of all the PhotoPass people you can find. They are everywhere and quite good at creating some extra magic.

Tomorrow, Magic Kingdom, Part Deux.

I am a Disney fanatic who can't get nearly enough time to be there! I am married to someone who isn't as into it as I am, but tolerates my "hobby". I live in Ohio, but would love to make the move to Orlando, if I would work either at Walt Disney World, or in some peripheral business serving the WDW area! I invite you to read, comment, and submit ideas anytime at Or, even better, send me a trip report to share with others! We all like to live through the experiences of others, help us stay connected to the magic! Thank you!!
