Day Three: Breakfast with Mickey, MGM, Christmas Parade

Our last day in Disney World was packed with fun activities. The day started early – we had breakfast with Mickey, Pluto, Lilo and Stitch at Disney’s Polynesian Resort at 7:30. The whole thing was very well done- the food was delicious (especially the Mickey waffles), and the characters spent time at each table for autographs and pictures. The boys absolutely loved it! Their eyes were beaming when Mickey came over.

After breakfast, all of the kids marched in a parade around the dining room. Ty insisted on walking by himself, and Pluto came right up behind him to play!

With full bellies, we headed over to MGM (now Disney’s Hollywood Studios). The highlight of the park was definitely the Toy Story ride – even the line had adorable memorabilia from the movie.

MJ also loved the Honey I Shrunk the Kids playground.

We bought tickets to the Magic Kingdom’s Christmas parade that evening (which didn’t start until 8:15), so we knew it was going to be a long day. Grannddad and both grandmas were kind enough to take the boys back to the condo for a nap while Steve and I did a few of the adult rides. We all met back up at the Magic Kingdom a couple of hours later. Since they close the park to all visitors except the Christmas parade guests, we breezed through all of the lines and went on all of MJs favorite rides one last time. The park was gorgeous with all of the Christmas lights and decorations.

We are so glad we stayed for the parade – it was amazing! We had front row seats, so MJ really felt like he was in all of the action.

We said goodbye to Disney World the next morning. Our first trip there with the kids was everything we dreamed of and more. We will definitely be back!!!
