The Happiest Place on Earth

I headed down to Jacksonville last week to spend some QT with the family, and we all spent Saturday at the Magic Kingdom!  Being President's Day weekend, it was fairly crowded, but we had a great time.  The lines weren't too bad (Fast Pass helped us out a lot in this department), and other than not really having enough time to browse around the shops and whatnot, it was a successful trip.  James, my five year old nephew, went on all the Mountains!  He was awesome.  He was apparently a little scared on Space Mountain, and I can't blame him being that it was his first roller coaster and it is so dark in there (no tears or anything, but he said it was scary when he got off... the picture was apparently hilarious).  He absolutely loved Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain.  Other favorites were Buzz Lightyear, the Teacups and Mickey's Philharmagic.  Little Brody Bear even went on some rides including Buzz, the Astro Orbiter, the Teacups, Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean.  We were up at 5am to get down there, and both boys were amazing all day.  James entertained himself in the lines by playing with  my Canon SLR... yes, I am the world's nicest aunt.  He wore the strap around his neck, so that made me feel better.  :)  He took a few good photos... the budding photographer that he is!  Now, I'm just itching to go back on a less crowded day!!

i could not agree with you more -- it IS the happiest place on earth. after all these years of going to magic kingdom (orlando, in general) i STILL am never sick of it. there's just something about that place that takes you away. this is one of many perks of growing up in florida :)
