Mickey MouseWe just returned from our second trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. We had a great time, and I'll be adding pictures and video to my mobile posts from Orlando over the next few days.

Vacation Day 7: Magic Kingdom & More

Our last full day at Disney World was split between Magic Kingdom, Downtown Disney, and relaxing in our resort room. We started with a character breakfast with Mary Poppins, Alice, Mad Hatter, Tigger, and Pooh, where our kids were treated as guests of honor and escorted to our table by Mary Poppins. Mad Hatter was a hoot! At Magic Kingdom we rode our first roller coaster as a family. It was awesome! Then after a peaceful afternoon in the room, we did some shopping at Downtown Disney. It was a good day.

Vacation Day 6: Epcot

After having breakfast with the Princesses we spent the day at Epcot, one of my favorite parks. Fast rides with my little girl and drinking Mezzo Mix at the Coke Club Cool made for an awesome day!

Vacation Day 5: Birthday Princess

My daughter's 5th birthday was spent at Magic Kingdom. We even had dinner with the Princesses at Cinderella Castle. At one shop we went into, the shopkeepers got everyone in the store -- customers included -- to sing Happy Birthday to her. It was a magical birthday! My little girl rode Splash Mountain with me and her first real roller coaster, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad -- front seat on both!

Vacation Day 4: Animal Kingdom

We had a great family day at Disney's Animal Kingdom. The "cast members" were back to their normal form. The parks have been very crowded this time around, and Downtown Disney was so crowded last night it was almost impossible to move. We had a wonderful meal at Chef Mickey's, and even my son got into meeting with the characters. It's been a great trip so far!
