Christmas at the Magic KingdomMonday, December 07, 2015
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that last weekend, we took our holiday trip to Disney!
We started our park days with Magic Kingdom. We planned our park days in order to do everything we wanted with the smallest crowds possible, which meant Magic Kingdom > Epcot > Hollywood Studios (we skipped Animal Kingdom this trip); it ended up working out really well for us.

Since we hit most of the things we really wanted to on our first trip, we knew what we definitely wanted to do, what we could skip, and what we might do if there was time and we felt like it. It ended up making for (mostly) a more relaxing, leisurely trip that allowed us to explore Disney World a little more than we were able to on our first trip.
I'm not going to lie, when we first walked through the breezeway and entered Main Street, U.S.A., I almost cried (especially when I saw the giant Christmas tree!).

On our way to Fantasyland for our lunch reservation at Be Our Guest, we finally got to see the famous Partners statue (it had been hidden during our first trip), and watched a show called Dream Along with Mickey at Cinderella Castle.
Afterward, we had our lunch at Be Our Guest, which was awesome (it's the second time we've eaten here -- the first was for breakfast -- and everything we've eaten so far has been fantastic!). We wanted to eat in the West Wing, but just like our first trip, it was full, so we ate in the Rose Gallery (we ate in the Ballroom last time).

In order to miss the post-fireworks bus crowds, we headed back to Tomorrowland and rode the PeopleMover before heading back to Coronado Springs to grab dinner at Pepper Market, relax in our room, and get a good night's rest in preparation for our Epcot day!
