    Walt Disney World – Day 5 – Magic Kingdom – New Fantasyland, Our Little Bit of Pixie Dust!

    As we approached the NEW FANTASYLAND section through the newly built castle wall we could see a sign that clearly stated ‘Cast Member and Pass Holder Previews’ my heart sank. Anyone who knows my Disney passion knows that it is all about Beauty and the Beast for me so to have this theming added to the MAGIC KINGDOM is really amazing for me, and definitely a future must do. We walked  ahead slowly, partly because Ethan was walking at our side a partly to see what they were telling the other guests that approached the area, they were clearly turning people away. Without holding out much hope I thought I better ask the cast…

    Walt Disney World – Day 5 – Magic Kingdom – Fantasyland!

    We made our way over to FANTASYLAND and somehow we always go around the long way. We look for Cinderella’s castle as our guide point but considering how big it is we couldn’t see it so ended up having to ask cast members for directions. The good thing about this is that we bumped into Chip and Dale and they had no one waiting to see them. Ethan went straight in for his high-five… …and Dale went in for a kiss but Ethan doesn’t do kisses and he handled it pretty well.   We finally made our way into FANTASYLAND and after parking the stroller headed straight for Peter Pan’s Flight. This was a…

    Walt Disney World – Day 5 – Magic Kingdom – Visiting Tinker Bell’s Magical Nook

    Another bright and early start and without planning to we actually made it to the Magic Kingdom before rope drop. It was great watching the show and we even got to see the talking Mickey Mouse!  Whilst waiting we discussed our plan of action on where to head to first, I knew it would be a great opportunity to get to the front of the queue to see some of the characters so we headed to ADVENTURELAND.   We where the first people to line up at this sign…   …we attracted some attention of the other guests and there was soon a small queue to meet the fairies. Whilst…

    Walt Disney World – Day 4 – EPCOT – Dinner at Coral Reef

    We had an early ADR booked for Coral Reef, I would have liked it a little later when we were planning our trip but it turned out to be the perfect time for us as it made as do a full day in the park which helped adjust Ethan to the time zone change. When we checked in I asked if we could have a table as close as possible to the aquarium tank. The restaurant is set up a bit like a theatre with the aquarium in the stage position and then about four levels that hold the tables that go higher the further you are from the tank so I would say that everyone has a…

    Ethan’s Turning Into A Little Water Baby!

    So the day has come to see if we could prove to Daddy that it isn’t just him who can get Ethan to swim and I’m so glad to say Ethan is well and truly getting there with learning to swim. I would never have lived it down if he didn’t swim today! As soon as Ethan was he in water he was off, his little legs moving like mad. We had done a length of the teaching pool before the lesson had officially started.  I can see that he had worked out that as soon as his legs stop he goes under the water a little bit because of…
