Day 2 was our first park day. We went to Magic Kingdom and primarily stayed in Fantasyland and Tomorrowland.
We got up really early to get MK before rope drop. The shirts I made for the day were Peter Pan for the guys and mine and LK's were Tink. They all say "2ND STAR TO THE RIGHT AND STRAIGHT ON TILL MORNING"
Fischer chose not to participate in most of the photos. He was genuinely scared of most of the character interactions (except Mickey... stay tuned for Day 5!) and he was authentically a full on threenager the rest of the time. I decided not to push it in order to avoid meltdowns. I wanted him to experience the magic in his own little ways.
We chose to drive our own car instead of taking the bus. I researched a lot about it and the consensus was that if you go EARLY you can be a little bit faster if you drive. Parking for MK is at the Ticket and Transportation Center and then you have to take a Ferry or the Monorail into the Park. We chose the Ferry.
The reason we wanted to make it early before rope drop is because we were not able to get a Fast Pass for Anna and Elsa and it was at the top of LK's list for Disney. I knew we wouldn't be able to every single thing at Disney, but I really wanted to be able to make their top things happen... even if it meant waiting in line.
We got to the park a little bit before the opening show and rope drop and went straight to Fantasyland and Princess Fairytale Hall to meet Anna and Elsa. The cast member at the entrance said it was only a 20 minute wait (which is nothing considering the wait gets up to 2+ hours). He lied. We waited a good 45 minutes. Still not as awful as it could have been, but it was hard to start our morning with that long of a wait knowing we could have been riding rides.
