I made before the park opens breakfast reservations at The Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom. I was dying to get in that park before the crowds to get my picture taking on. And boy did I. The only sour part was that they were in the process of painting the turrets, so the stupid crane is in all my castle shots. GRRRR!!
Then THIS happened . . .
Well first of all I chalk it up to dumb luck and Disney magic. Secondly, We were there within the first 30 minutes of the ride opening. Thirdly, we are a family of three, which meant there was room on our carpet for him to sit. Jasmine rode the carpet behind us with another family of three. THAT mother got out, took pictures and let her child sit next to Jasmine. I disregarded her parenting style entirely, obviously.
Literally one of the best experiences as a parent at Disney, a close second is the meet and greet with Belle during our first visit, but that will be a story for another day. This is the type of experience that keeps us coming back. You can't plan for it or pay for it. It is indeed one of the many cogs in the wheel of Disney's greatness.
How can we top this on our next trip??
To my husband's great displeasure, I want to be the family that opens Magic Kingdom. He says it won't happen. I say I'm going to kill us trying. LOL!!
