Last weekend we took a trip to Orlando for my birthday! Walt Disney World and Disneyland were opened 24 hours (from 6am-6am) for Leapday. My mom had to work on Wednesday so we left after we cleaned up from Religious Ed and got to Magic Kingdom around 1am.
People were complaining it was crowded but 40 minutes was the longest line we waited on! I guess we went through the park in the right order. I think 80% of the people were in line for character meet and greets and enjoying the entertainment.
I finally saw a friend from high school that works on Expedition Everest in Animal Kingdom and he gave us Free Fast Passes. Although it was kind of pointless because there was no line (it’s the thought that counts).
Your text here.These are some nice pictures I took from the Ferry on our way back to our car at 6am. I have friends that were at Magic Kingdom at 6am Wednesday morning and they said it was really cool because there was FOG everywhere and around the castle. Not too much fog on Thursday morning but still pretty pictures.
The newest trend to hit the Magic Kingdom is a game called The Sorcerer’s of the Magic Kingdom. The premise of the game is that Hades and all the evil villains have taken over the Magic Kingdom and Merlin needs YOUR help to save the Magic Kingdom! Yes it sounds corny but it is 10x cooler than it sounds. Every day you go to the park you get a key and 5 “magic cards” which are basically disney-fied Pokemon cards. So far I have about 17 cards (you get doubles), there are 70 cards altogether.
When you check-in at the Firehouse on main street they give you your cards, a key and a map (of all the portals). You put the key up to the portal and it plays through a screen and eventually tells you to “cast a spell” using one of your cards. [I could write a whole post on this game] Below are some pictures of what the game looks line in action.

I FINALLY had a DoleWhip. On all the Disney blogs I’ve been reading everyone talks about this desert called a “Dole Whip.” I finally had one and it was DELICIOUS! I even found a recipe to make my version here.

As I mentioned a few weeks ago we are moving. We are officially moving at the end of the month and we have a place to move to! Thanks to Jen @ ::Meditatio:: for recommending we go to stores during stocking time to get boxes. We were at Walmart Friday night and there were a TON of boxes in the aisles and they let us take all of them. They were happy for us to take them off their hands (they only have to crush them and throw them away). We have been collecting boxes slowly hopefully we’ll have enough. I really hate packing and unpacking.
