13th December 2013 (Day 12): Magic Kingdom, Downtown Disney and T-Rex

magic-kingdom-logoSo back to start the day at the Magic Kingdom.  This is the 4th day’s useage of the ticket we bought, so we have 1 more day to use on it before it runs out.

As mentioned in previous posts the Kingdom was really dressed up for the holidays and this included the shop window with Christmas Minnie and Mickey.

As we weren’t going to be staying that long today (but it was our last visit this trip the Magic Kingdom) we made sure to get some shots in front of the Castle.

We went on the Haunted Mansion ride after this but would you believe it broke down.  Now look at the date of this visit and I can tell you it was a Friday.  So Friday 13th struck and we were in the ride for ages, and eventually they turned all the lights on and walked us out.  Bit of a shame but we got a free Fastpass and got to see how it all worked.  Mainly wires in case you were wondering.

So we headed to the Princess Fairytale Hall again, this time to meet some other Princesses.  They have one advertised as being there but the second one isn’t revealed until you get in.  You had the choice of Rapunzel (who we met on our previous visit) or Cinderella.  And today was Cinderella’s turn.

And with her today was Sleeping Beauty.

She was so nice and gave the biggest hug.

We then went over to Adventureland to see Tinkerbelle.  The queue was  pretty bad and we had to wait 45 minutes, which is about the longest wait we’d had at that time. Pixie Hollow is entered through some magic doors which shrink you down to pixie size.

And with Tinkerbelle was Periwinkle.

One thing I hadn’t mentioned previously is that all the characters (or nearly all) were giving out Christmas wishes.  These were little cards with a picture and their autograph on them and a little wish.  Made a great keepsake.

Next door to the Princess Hall there was Peter Pan and the queue was really small, so we went on that.

And same for It’s a Small World.

We decided to use our Fastpass for the Pirates of the Caribbean.  Rosemary really enjoyed this, even the drop to go down to the main bit.  Pretty sure this is only a few feet but it felt huge and we both lunged for her to keep her from falling out.  Completely unnecessary though…

And at this point we passed out again….

We drove over to Downtown Disney to go to T-Rex Cafe.

Rosemary was still quite sleepy but soon woke up when we were inside.

Here drink had flashing LED lights in it which was fab.

Wont upload too many pictures of the dinosaurs, but I did particularly like the mammoth.
