Disney Day 7- Magic Kingdom

Well, we have made it to our last day of our first Disney trip (which happened almost 2 years ago...)

We saved the Magic Kingdom for last because we wanted to end at the best park for Payton and we knew we only had one day at each park. We decided at the end of the night that the next time we came to Disney we would do MK at LEAST twice. Once at the beginning and once at the end. I feel like I have to see Wishes right before leaving Disney. (Though on this trip it was the 4th of July show and not Wishes!)

If you look at this first picture, you can see how crazy busy it was. We knew it would be since it was 4th of July week. You can also see that it rained...of course. But it was our last day and we had to make the most of it. Starting with some castle pictures. Payton was less than thrilled. But I do like this one with her ears.
And the first ride at Magic Kingdom- the carousel of course. She loved it (and still does- we rode it MANY times on our last trip). 
And when she got off, Tim managed to snap some of the funniest facial expressions I have seen. You can see the look of pride and determination on this girl... like "Yeah, I'm big stuff, I rode that carousel, and I am ready for more rides!"

So we went on the Teacups... and I thought she wouldn't like it. But she did. She was even spinning us around herself.
And Dumbo... another fan favorite (still- I am pretty sure we went on this and the carousel a good 50 times on our last trip).

After the FIRST go around with Dumbo (we had fastpasses), she wanted to go again. The line wasn't too too long, so we waited. And since they have the awesome play area for while you are waiting, we decided to go in there with her. They give you a buzzer (think what you get at restaurants) and when it was your turn, it buzzed. Payton loved it. She will also tell you that she pooped here. And she did. And she remembers.
But look at this smile.
And by the time we got back on, it was pouring. OF COURSE. I had high hopes to get a picture of Tim and Payton on the ride (in the air) however, the rain was not allowing it, so this was the best I could do before I had to put the camera away.
Later on, we saw the parade. I took plenty of pictures, but this one just makes me so happy. She was LOVING it and waving to all the characters. And any time anyone waved back she got so excited.
It was then time for  Mickey Bar. Everyone who has had a Mickey bar knows the look of happiness that Payton has in this picture.

Earlier in the day, my mom took Payton to meet Buzz while the rest of us want on Space Mountain- of course the ONE time there is no camera around, Payton FINALLY walked up to Buzz by herself, and took a pic alone. Luckily my mom did snap it on her phone. Later on, we decided to take a "break" at one point and Chip and Dale were out dancing in the crowd. We walked over to let Payton look and lo and behold she went right up there to dance.
And I took far too many pictures and video. And almost cried. Literally friends. It was the sweetest thing and to see her so excited and not shy. Too much!
And all of a sudden she was an old pro at meeting characters...

This next picture is another one we have made a tradition now. We took a picture here when we got engaged, so now we add Payton to the picture.
And at the end of the night we saw the Electrical Parade and fireworks.

But the night wasn't over. It was late, but Payton was going strong. Yes, I let my 2 year old stay up well past her bed time. Yes I let her sleep in her stroller if she crashed. And yes, it was worth it. Since she was still raring to go, we went on a couple more rides before heading out and ending the trip. Firs up- Small World. You can see my niece's feelings on the ride...
We also rode the carousel again (I think a couple times)... look at her face in this next one!
We rode Winnie the Pooh as well and then walked around a bit. At this point, it was just the 3 of us. It was nice to just walk around. And apparently Payton thought so too since she finally crashed.

Until next time Disney!
